NBA starting lineups, injury news for Saturday, February 27th

We update you with all the latest lineup and injury news for the seven-game slate.

New Orleans Pelicans v Milwaukee Bucks

We’ve got seven games on the schedule in the NBA for Saturday night. The Brooklyn Nets and Dallas Mavericks would be our “Matchup to Watch” so to speak. Instead, the Mavs are shorthanded and the Nets are unstoppable. Unless we get some late-breaking injury news on the Brooklyn-side, this could be another lopsided win in favor of Brooklyn. The New York Knicks are also in action against the Indiana Pacers and can get to .500 on the season with a win. The Utah Jazz are looking to bounce back from a rare loss on Friday and the Orlando Magic are the unfortunate opponent.

Let’s take a look at lineups for Saturday night.
