The NBA is into week six as here are the key injuries that could be affecting your potential team you are betting on. Always make sure to check up on injuries as they will be the deciding factor on who will win. Below is the NBA Injury Report for Week 6.

Al Horford Celtics

Horford is listed as day-to-day and also listed as probable for the Celtics game Wednesday against the New York Knicks due to left knee soreness. The Celtics luckily haven’t had a serious injury yet this season, and Horford should be ready to go, for the Celtics after Wednesday’s game.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Hornets

Gilchrist continues to be out for Charlotte, after injuring his ankle last week, and has already missed a game on Monday against the Celtics and will be out Wednesday against the Pacers. This could keep Kidd-Gilchrist out for a couple weeks as the Hornets will look to others to step up in his absence.

Denzel Valentine Bulls

Valentine is scheduled to have reconstructive surgery on his ankle, and will likely be out for the next four to six months due to that. Valentine has yet to play a game this season and has been dealing with leg and foot injuries since entering the league in 2016. Kris Dunn, Lauri Markannen and Zach Lavine are all each dealing with injuries, which just adds into an already shorthanded Bulls line-up.

Stephen Curry Warriors

Steph Curry continues to miss time for the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors have really been struggling in his absence, along with the Durant and Green drama. Curry remains out with a groin injury and will miss the Warriors game with the Sacramento Kings on Saturday, along with being re-evaluated that day as well, but will not be in the line-up.

Draymond Green Warriors

In more injury news for Golden State, Draymond Green will miss Wednesday game with the Thunder, with a toe injury that he has been dealing with for the last week as he already missed the Warriors game against Dallas. Green has a right toe sprain and no timetable for his return has been given. The Warriors are in the midst of a three-game losing streak, and that could continue until the Warriors all-stars are back in the line-up.

Markelle Fultz 76ers

Fultz will miss an unspecified amount of time for Philadelphia. Fultz injured his shoulder and will see a specialist next week, but will be away from the team until his injury is diagnosed.

Pau Gasol Spurs

Gasol missed the Spurs game Monday nights against the Pelicans, and it looks like he will miss more time. Gasol is dealing with a foot injury and hasn’t been ruled out or in for any of the Spurs games this week.

Elfrid Payton Pelicans

Payton will miss approximately six weeks after having surgery to repair his broken pinky finger. Payton had already missed nine games prior to suffering the injury Friday against the Knicks. He missed the time previously due to an ankle sprain. Payton short time in New Orleans has been injury-filled to this point.

Myles Turner Pacers

Turner is listed as questionable for the Pacers game Wednesday against the Hornets. Turner is dealing with a sprained left ankle, that may keep him out for more than one game. Turner hasn’t quite had the season he has had in prior years to this point but, this injury could be playing a role in his ability.
