NBA Injury Report, November 30: Updates for Jaylen Brown, CJ McCollum, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, more

We have a huge list of 13 NBA Wednesday games anchored by a double header on NBATV. Here’s a look at the injury report of the day, along with relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: November 30

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Jarrett Allen (rear) – OUT
Kevin Love (thumbs) – OUT

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

Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic

Jalen Johnson (ankle) – doubtful
Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) – doubtful

Those wingers don’t play, although it’s nice to see Bogdanovic come back in the daily report. Long a strong fantasy/DFS activist, De’Andre Hunter has tremendous value on this list.

Wendell Carter Jr. (foot) – OUT
Jalen Suggs (ankle) – OUT
Markelle Fultz (toe) – Available
Mo Bamba (rear) – questionable

Mo Wagner and Bol Bol could be great games if Bamba is ruled out, while Fultz is available to make his debut and should do well without Suggs.

Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics

Jimmy Butler (knee) – OUT
Tyler Herro (ankle) – questionable
Caleb Martin (illness) – doubtful
Duncan Robinson (ankle) – questionable
Max Strus (shoulder) – probably

The Heat still won’t have a star but this group has been resilient and should have most of their rotation intact by the time these guys recover from injuries.

Jaylen Brown (neck) – questionable
Al Horford (rear) – Available

If Brown sits, Jayson Tatum and Malcolm Brogdon will appreciate in fantasy/DFS formats.

Washington Wizards vs. Brooklyn Nets

Rui Hachimura (ankle) – questionable

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

Ben Simmons (knee) – OUT

Simmons left Monday’s game abruptly and did not return with knee pain. He’s been ruled out, which means Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will have even bigger stakes. It will also open some recording sessions for Joe Harris and Seth Curry.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. New York Knicks

No significant everyday injuries for either team at this point.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Dillon Brooks (hamstring) – doubtful

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

Karl-Anthony Towns (Calf) – AUS 4-6 weeks
Jaden McDaniels (illness) – probably

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

Toronto Raptors vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Otto Porter Jr. (toe) – OUT

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

CJ McCollum (conditioning) – questionable
Brandon Ingram (toe) – OUT

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

San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Jakob Pöltl (square) – OUT
Jeremy Sochan (square) – OUT

The Spurs and quad injuries don’t have a good history. Both boys are expected to be absent for at least a week. Charles Bassey and Keldon Johnson should gain in value with those absences.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) – Doubtful

SGA was on fire for the Thunder. Tre Mann and Josh Giddey would be nice filler games if the main watch is ruled out.

Houston Rockets vs. Denver Nuggets

Michael Porter Jr. (heel) – Doubtful
Bone Hyland (disease) – questionable

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

Chicago Bulls vs. Phoenix Suns

Chris Paul (heel) – OUT

Paul continues to sit, although the Suns didn’t seem to miss his presence on the pitch. Cam Payne and Devin Booker will continue to be the lead playmakers for the Suns.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Utah Jazz

Paul George (hamstring) – OUT
Kawhi Leonard (ankle) – OUT
Luke Kennard (Calf) – OUT

The Clippers will still lose three key figures. Terance Mann is the highest value game while Norman Powell and Nicolas Batum will be good fill options if George and Leonard are out.

Indiana Pacers vs. Sacramento Kings

No significant everyday injuries for either team at this point.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Anthony Davis (calf) – probably
LeBron James (groin) – probably

Those stars are still listed on the injury report, but both should be there for the Lakers. They’ll be looking to recover after losing a double-digit lead against the Pacers and are nice fantasy options if Portland plays the second night of a back-to-back set.
