We’ve got just four games on Tuesday’s NBA slate, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a decent-sized injury report. Some top teams are still trying to shake some nagging issues as the season concludes, so we’ll see how some of these designations change over the next 10 games. Here’s Tuesday’s injury report in the NBA, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.
NBA Injury Report: March 22
Andrew Wiggins (knee) available
Moses Moody (shoulder) available
Update - As expected, Wiggins is good to go and will start for Golden State Tuesday against the Magic.
Wiggins should be good to go, while Moody could sit. If that happens, look for Jonathan Kuminga and Otto Porter Jr. to get some additional minutes. Kuminga remains one of the best value options in fantasy/DFS lineups.
Jalen Suggs (ankle) OUT
Suggs is out, so look for Markelle Fultz and Cole Anthony to take a majority of the backcourt minutes for Orlando Tuesday.
Bogdan Bogdanovic (quad) available
Update - Bogdanovic will play Tuesday, which is a nice boost for the Hawks. This is a pivotal game for both teams given the East standings, and Atlanta will be happy to have a key wing player in the rotation.
If Bogdanovic gets ruled out, Kevin Huerter and Danilo Gallinari are the natural replacement options on the wing for the Hawks.
Julius Randle (calf) OUT
Randle being out is a big blow for the Knicks, who were already underdogs in this game. R.J. Barrett will take on an even bigger scoring load, with Evan Fournier also heavily involved. Look for either Obi Toppin or Taj Gibson to get major run at the power forward spot in Randle’s absence.
Zach LaVine (knee) available
Update - LaVine will play in both games of the back-to-back set, which is awesome news for the Bulls in regards to his pain tolerance. This means his knee is starting to handle some of the stress well enough to power through games in a short span.
Update - The Bulls are officially listing LaVine as questionable with “injury management”.
The Bulls played Monday, which means LaVine’s knee could be acting up again on a back-to-back set. If he sits, Coby White and Ayo Dosunmu are the value plays for Chicago.
Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) available
Khris Middleton (wrist) OUT
Update — So the Bucks will be without Middleton against the Bulls, but Antetokounmpo will be back in the lineup.
Antetokounmpo should be good to go, while Middleton will sit out. Jrue Holiday is in line for more shots, but Jordan Nwora and Grayson Allen might be the top value plays Tuesday as they’ll likely take over at the shooting guard spot.
JaMychal Green (hip) available
Update - And now Green is officially good to go.
Update - Nothing official yet, but Green appears to be available. He won’t start, but he will get some minutes in the forward rotation throughout the game.
Green is probable, which means he’ll likely absorb some minutes from Aaron Gordon and Jeff Green in Denver’s rotation Tuesday against the Clippers.
