We’ve got a huge 13-game slate in the NBA Wednesday, anchored by a doubleheader on NBATV. Here’s a look at the day’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: November 30

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Jarrett Allen (back) - OUT
Kevin Love (thumb) - OUT

Allen and Love are both out, so Evan Mobley becomes Cleveland’s best interior option and is a solid DFS play.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic

Jalen Johnson (ankle) - OUT
Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) - OUT
De’Andre Hunter (hip) - available

Update - Hunter is in for the Hawks.

Update - Hunter has been added to the report with a hip issue. He could still be a great option if he plays as Johnson and Bogdanovic are unlikely to suit up but this is a situation worth monitoring now.

These wing players aren’t playing, although it’s nice to see Bogdanovic coming back on the day-to-day report. De’Andre Hunter, who has long been a strong fantasy/DFS asset, has tremendous value on this slate.

Wendell Carter Jr. (foot) - OUT
Jalen Suggs (ankle) - OUT
Markelle Fultz (toe) - available
Mo Bamba (back) - OUT

Update - Bamba has been ruled out, which means Wagner likely gets the start at center for Orlando.

Mo Wagner and Bol Bol could be great plays if Bamba gets ruled out, while Fultz is available to make his debut and should get good run with Suggs out.

Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics

Jimmy Butler (knee) - OUT
Tyler Herro (ankle) - available
Caleb Martin (illness) - available
Duncan Robinson (ankle) - available
Max Strus (shoulder) - available

Update - Everyone who was questionable in the rotation is available.

The Heat still won’t have their star, but this group has been resilient and should have most of its rotation intact as these guys start to recover from injuries.

Jaylen Brown (neck) - available
Al Horford (back) - available

Update - Brown is active for Wednesday’s tilt against the Miami Heat following a one-game absence.

Washington Wizards vs. Brooklyn Nets

Rui Hachimura (ankle) - OUT

If Hachimura sits, Daniel Gafford and Kristaps Porzingis will be strong plays.

Ben Simmons (knee) - OUT

Simmons abruptly left Monday’s game and didn’t return with knee soreness. He’s been ruled out, which means Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will have even more usage. It’ll also open up some shots for Joe Harris and Seth Curry.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. New York Knicks

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at this time.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Dillon Brooks (thigh) - available

Update - Brooks is in for the Grizzlies.

If Brooks sits, John Konchar and David Roddy would be good fallback options on the perimeter for Memphis.

Karl-Anthony Towns (calf) - OUT 4-6 weeks
Jaden McDaniels (illness) - OUT

Update - McDaniels has been downgraded throughout the day and eventually got ruled out. That makes Anderson a filler play in DFS lineups.

McDaniels will be back in, which could cut into Kyle Anderson’s minutes.

Toronto Raptors vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Otto Porter Jr. (toe) - OUT

With Porter Jr. out, there are more minutes available for Chris Boucher and Thad Young. Pascal Siakam and Scottie Barnes are back, so those guys will be backups in the rotation.

CJ McCollum (conditioning) - OUT
Brandon Ingram (toe) - OUT

Update - The Pelicans have quickly ruled McCollum out due to conditioning.

Ingram has been ruled out, while McCollum will be hoping his conditioning is back after a stint in the protocols. If he doesn’t play, Trey Murphy and Jose Alvarado will maintain their value. Murphy should still get the start with Ingram out.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Jakob Poeltl (quad) - OUT
Jeremy Sochan (quad) - OUT

The Spurs and quad injuries don’t have a good history. Both guys are expected to miss at least a week. Charles Bassey and Keldon Johnson should gain value with these absences.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) - OUT

Update - The Thunder have ruled Gilgeous-Alexander out, which means Mann and Giddey will be strong filler options in DFS lineups.

SGA has been on fire for the Thunder. Tre Mann and Josh Giddey would be nice filler plays if the lead guard is ruled out.

Houston Rockets vs. Denver Nuggets

Michael Porter Jr. (heel) - OUT
Bones Hyland (illness) - available

Update - Porter Jr. has been ruled out for tonight’s game.

Update - Hyland is in, which takes away some minutes from KCP.

If Porter Jr. and Hyland are ruled out, Aaron Gordon and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will see increased minutes and usage against Houston.

Chicago Bulls vs. Phoenix Suns

Chris Paul (heel) - OUT

Paul continues to sit, although the Suns haven’t seemed to miss his presence on the court. Cam Payne and Devin Booker will keep being the lead playmakers for the Suns.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Utah Jazz

Paul George (hamstring) - OUT
Kawhi Leonard (ankle) - OUT
Luke Kennard (calf) - OUT
Norman Powell (groin) - OUT
Reggie Jackson (back) - available

Update - Powell is out and Jackson is in for the Clippers.

Update - Powell is likely out, which further elevates Batum. If Jackson is out, John Wall would be the lead point guard for Los Angeles.

The Clippers are still going to be down three key guys. Terance Mann is the top value play, while Norman Powell and Nicolas Batum will be good filler options with George and Leonard out.

Indiana Pacers vs. Sacramento Kings

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at this time.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Anthony Davis (calf) - available
LeBron James (groin) - available

Update - As expected, both players are in for the Lakers.

These stars continue to be listed on the injury report but both should be in for the Lakers. They’ll look to rebound after blowing a double-digit lead against the Pacers, and are nice fantasy options with Portland playing the second night of a back-to-back set.
