Short-Term NBA Injuries

Blake Griffin, PF, Detroit Pistons - sore left knee

Griffin has been plagued by a sore left knee all season, which has him doubtful for Monday's game. He's shooting a career-worst 35.2 percent from the floor. He has posted just 15.5 points, 4.7 boards and 3.3 assists, and it's probably a matter of time before he has to get scoped. Power forward Markieff Morris (foot) is also out, and center Christian Wood figures to see more action this week as a low-end streamer.

Jabari Parker, PF, Atlanta Hawks - right shoulder impingement

Parker's renaissance tour was halted a week ago with the shoulder injury, and he's likely to miss most of this week as well. With point guard Trae Young (ankle) out as well, center John Collins becomes a must-start universally this week as their best option on offense. Small forward De'Andre Hunter is next in line and is worthy of a low-end streaming option.

Trae Young, PG, Atlanta Hawks - sprained right ankle

Young is in the midst of a huge season with 28.5 points, 8.3 assists, 4.3 boards and 1.2 steals per game, but he has been hampered by some minor injuries. He has missed a couple of games with the ankle sprain, and he's questionable for the back-to-back tilt this weekend. Small forward Cam Reddish ran the show Saturday night, but he only scored two points to go with six dimes, five boards and two steals. He could be worth streaming this week with tempered expectations.


Mid-Term NBA Injuries

Marvin Bagley, PF, Sacramento Kings - left mid-foot sprain

Bagley has missed two straight games and is likely to miss a third Tuesday. Power forward Nemanja Bjelica busted out with 27 points and six boards Sunday, and he'll be a hot play as long as Bagley is out. If Bjelica was dropped when Bagley returned, jump on him immediately.

Aaron Gordon, PF, Orlando Magic - left Achilles' soreness

The explosive forward went down Saturday with an Achilles' injury, but tests showed no structural damage. He's still likely to miss most of this week. Power forward Mohamed Bamba (ankle) is also banged up, but he's expected to gut it out. He'll be a solid source for boards and blocks while Gordon is out.


Long-Term NBA Injuries

Tim Hardaway Jr., SG, Dallas Mavericks - strained left hamstring

Hardaway pulled up lame Sunday with a left hamstring injury that appeared to have him in a lot of pain. Hardaway said he's walking fine, and he didn't feel a pop, so it's possible that he could just be out a week or two. Point guard Jalen Brunson has been quiet since star point-forward Luka Doncic returned, but he could see increased minutes again. Brunson is worth the speculative pickup if he was dropped.
