There are 11 games on Monday’s NBA slate, with one nationally televised contest on NBATV. Here’s a look at the day’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: February 13

Atlanta Hawks vs. Charlotte Hornets

Trae Young (shoulder) - available
John Collins (hip) - OUT
Bogdan Bogdanovic (hip) - available

Update - Bogdanovic is in for Atlanta.

Update - Collins has been ruled out, which means Okongwu is a good play in DFS formats. Bogdanovic is on track to play but still officially listed as questionable.

Update - Young is in for the Hawks, while Collins and Bogdanovic remain questionable.

Young should be in. If Collins sits, Onyeka Okongwu gets elevated in DFS formats. Bogdanovic being ruled out would benefit Jalen Johnson, AJ Griffin and De’Andre Hunter.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Tre Jones (foot) - OUT
Keldon Johnson (ankle) - available
Jeremy Sochan (conditioning) - available
Doug McDermott (Achilles) - OUT

Update - Johnson and Sochan are both in. Doug McDermott has been ruled out, which elevates both forwards in this rotation.

With Jones out, Malaki Branham should be San Antonio’s starting point guard in this contest.

Utah Jazz vs. Indiana Pacers

Myles Turner (back) - OUT
Tyrese Haliburton (thigh) - available

Update - Turner has been ruled out, which makes Jackson a strong DFS add. Haliburton is in for the Pacers and will lead this offense against a Jazz unit that just got smoked by the Knicks Saturday.

If Haliburton is out, Bennedict Mathurin will see more usage in the backcourt. Turner being ruled out likely makes Isaiah Jackson the starting big man for Indiana.

Houston Rockets vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Joel Embiid (foot) - available
Skake Milton (eye) - available

Update - As expected, both guys are in for the 76ers.

Update - Embiid participated in the shootaround, and his questionable tag is just a Doc Rivers gimmick at this point. The big man will be in.

Both guys should be in for Philadelphia.

Denver Nuggets vs. Miami Heat

Aaron Gordon (ribs) - OUT
Jamal Murray (knee) - OUT

Update - Both Gordon and Murray are out for the Nuggets, which means Brown is set to get a start. Porter Jr. is going to see more shots in this offense with Murray also being out.

If Murray is out, Bruce Brown would start at point guard. Gordon being ruled out likely means more looks for Michael Porter Jr.

Bam Adebayo (knee) - available
Tyler Herro (knee) - OUT
Gabe Vincent (ankle) - available
Max Strus (shoulder) - available
Victor Oladipo (ankle) - OUT

Update - Herro is out, but everyone else is in for the Heat.

Update - Herro is set to sit this one out, which means Strus is a strong play in DFS lineups.

Kyle Lowry remains out, so Vincent is a great value add in DFS formats. If Herro is ruled out, Strus gets elevated into value territory as well.

Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks

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

Orlando Magic vs. Chicago Bulls

Alex Caruso (foot) - OUT

Update - Caruso has been ruled out, which means White should see more minutes.

If Caruso gets ruled out, Coby White should see more playing time for the Bulls in a favorable matchup.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

CJ McCollum (ankle) - OUT

Update - McCollum has been ruled out, which means Murphy and Ingram are likely going to be the top perimeter options offensively for New Orleans. Valanciunas is going to be a key in the middle as well, especially against a struggling Oklahoma City frontcourt.

If McCollum doesn’t play, the Pelicans likely run their offense through Brandon Ingram. Trey Murphy and Jonas Valanciunas also see more shots if McCollum sits.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Dallas Mavericks

Rudy Gobert (groin) - available
Kyle Anderson (back) - available

Update - Gobert is in and will start for the Timberwolves. Anderson is also in.

Gobert should be in but if he sits, Naz Reid will be the replacement option. Anderson being ruled out would give Jaden McDaniels more minutes.

Tim Hardaway Jr. (hamstring) - OUT

Update - Hardaway Jr. has been ruled out, moving guys like Bullock and Wood up in the rotation.

Hardaway Jr. sitting would help role players like Reggie Bullock and Christian Wood get more touches, but the two guards are going to take most of the shots in this offense.

Washington Wizards vs. Golden State Warriors

Kyle Kuzma (ankle) - OUT

Update - Kuzma has been ruled out for Monday’s game.

Daniel Gafford would be in line for big minutes if Kuzma is ruled out with this injury.

Andrew Wiggins (ankle) - available

Update - Wiggins is in for the Warriors.

If Wiggins doesn’t play, Donte DiVincenzo and Jonathan Kuminga will benefit in fantasy/DFS formats.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Anthony Davis (foot) - available
LeBron James (ankle) - OUT

Update - Davis is in for LA, and will shoulder a much heavier workload with James out. Look for the big man to try to get back to his dominant ways as he continues to manage foot soreness.

Update - James is once again going to be out for the Lakers. This is his third missed game in a row and he’s likely not going to play much ahead of the All-Star Game, where he has been named a captain. In fact, there’s a chance he could even sit that game to let his ankle injury heal more. Look for Davis and Russell to be the key players for LA with James out.

James is dealing with a serious ankle problem, per many league insiders. If he sits, D’Angelo Russell will be the second offensive option for LA. Jarred Vanderbilt and Malik Beasley offer some upside as they’re going to see more minutes if James sits.

Jerami Grant (concussion) - OUT

Update - Grant has been ruled out for Monday’s game.

Something odd is going on with Grant, who had concussion-like symptoms in one game but kept playing before being thrown into the league’s protocols after exiting the last game. Now, he’s somehow questionable for Monday’s contest. We’ll see exactly what happens here but if Grant is out, Nassir Little is set to receive big minutes.
