    Nets' T.J. Warren: Questionable but unlikely to play

    Warren (shin) is officially listed as questionable, per Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com, but head coach Jacque Vaughn said Friday morning that the reserve forward isn't expected to play Saturday against the Wizards, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Warren has already missed three consecutive contests and will likely miss a fourth straight due to a left shin contusion. However, the backup forward recently started participating in practice again and is on the verge of returning to game action. If Warren indeed remains sidelined Saturday, his next chance to suit up would come against the Clippers on Monday, which is the first half of a back-to-back set.

  • Kyrie Irving PG | BKN

    Nets' Kyrie Irving: Not on injury report for Saturday

    Irving isn't listed on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Wizards, Alec Sturm of NetsDaily.com reports.

    Despite officially requesting a trade from the Nets on Friday, Irving looks set to be in uniform Saturday. The star point guard hopes to be dealt within the next week as the NBA trade deadline approaches Feb. 9, but it appears he won't skip games to avoid an injury risk that could nullify trade negotiations. Irving has compiled another impressive season in Brooklyn in 2022-23, racking up 27.1 points, 5.3 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game, and there figure to be several teams interested in adding his services before next Thursday.

  • Nikola Jokic C | DEN

    Nuggets' Nikola Jokic: Questionable against Atlanta

    Jokic is questionable for Saturday's game versus the Hawks due to left hamstring tightness.

    Jokic continues to deal with tightness in his left hamstring, despite playing the last three games. However, the Nuggets will play a back-to-back on Saturday and Sunday, so the two-time MVP could certainly miss one of those contests. If Jokic doesn't suit up, Zeke Nnaji would likely start and DeAndre Jordan could receive some run as well.

  • Aaron Gordon PF | DEN

    Nuggets' Aaron Gordon: Iffy for Saturday

    Gordon (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Hawks.

    Gordon sat out Thursday's game against the Warriors due to a left ankle sprain he suffered in Tuesday's matchup against New Orleans and is in danger of missing a second straight contest. If that's the case, Vlatko Cancar, Bruce Brown, Christian Braun and Jeff Green are all candidates for increased roles.

  • Jack White SF | DEN

    Nuggets' Jack White: Still out Saturday

    White (thigh) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Atlanta.

    White has been dealing with a left adductor strain for over a week and will be unavailable again. His absence hasn't impacted the Nuggets' rotation.

  • Gary Payton II PG | POR

    Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Questionable Friday

    Payton is questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to a non-COVID illness.

    Payton has appeared in the last six matchups, but he was a late addition to Friday's injury report due to his illness. Shaedon Sharpe is a candidate to see increased run against Washington if Payton is unavailable.

  • Davis Bertans SF | DAL

    Mavericks' Davis Bertans: Won't play Saturday

    Bertans (calf) is out for Saturday's game versus the Warriors.

    Bertans will miss at least one game after exiting Thursday's contest against the Pelicans early with a left calf strain. His next chance to suit up is Monday's matchup with Utah, but it's currently unclear if the sharpshooting big man will be able to join the Mavericks at any point during their upcoming five-game road trip.

  • Mavericks' Christian Wood: Won't play Saturday

    Wood (thumb) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Golden State.

    Wood was considered unlikely to play Saturday, but the Mavericks are optimistic that he'll be available Monday against the Jazz or Wednesday against the Clippers. He's been progressing in his recovery from a fractured left thumb recently, as he was fully cleared for practice Thursday before participating in a post-practice scrimmage Friday. Dwight Powell should continue to see increased run Saturday, but Wood's return appears to be imminent.

  • Mavericks' Spencer Dinwiddie: Questionable Saturday

    Dinwiddie is questionable for Saturday's game against the Warriors due to right knee injury recovery.

    Dinwiddie has been particularly effective recently, as he's scored at least 20 points in eight of his last 10 appearances. Across that span, he's averaged 23.7 points, 5.9 assists and 2.9 rebounds in 35.9 minutes per game. He hasn't missed any time since Dec. 17, but if he's sidelined Saturday, Frank Ntilikina and Jaden Hardy would be candidates to see increased run.

  • Knicks' Ryan Arcidiacono: Iffy due to illness

    Arcidiacono is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Clippers due to a non-COVID illness.

    Arcidiacono and Jalen Brunson are both dealing with illnesses and may be sidelined Saturday. If that's the case, Miles McBride and Immanuel Quickley would be candidates for increased roles, while Derrick Rose, who hasn't played since Dec. 31, could work his way back into the Knicks' rotation.
