As we enter week seven of the NBA season, here are the key players who are dealing with injuries that could affect your potential betting picks. Here is the officially NBA Injury Report for Week 7.

Tyler Dorsey – Hawks

Dorsey is expected to be out for at least the Hawks next three games as he is suffering from a bone bruise. It comes at a tough point for Atlanta as they go on a three-game road trip. Dorsey is a key member of the Hawks line-up and this will open up more time for many of the teams younger players chances to see more playing time. For one of the young’s rosters in the league, the Hawks will need others to step up in Dorsey’s absence.

Kevin Love – Cavaliers

Love had surgery on his injured left toe, a couple weeks ago and will be sidelined until most likely sometime in January which keeps him out for a major amount of time. Love was averaging 19.0 points and 13.5 rebounds prior to his toe injury. This injury impacts the league’s bottom team even more. The Cavaliers are coming off a major win for the team as they defeated the Houston Rockets this past weekend.

Gary Harris – Nuggets

Gary Harris missed the Nuggets game Saturday against Oklahoma City. Harris may miss a little more time this week as he continues to be dealing with an ankle injury. He may be ready by Tuesday, but keep an eye on this injury. Harris has been having a solid season, as he continues to climb his way up towards near the top players of the NBA.

Draymond Green – Warriors

Green continues to be out, as he has missed the Warriors last five games. Draymond is still dealing with a sprained toe, which makes it even harder for Green to return to the line-up. Green will be out against the Magic early this week but could be ready for Friday’s game against Toronto.

Anthony Davis – Pelicans

Davis missed the Pelicans last game but should be expected to be ready for the Pelicans game Monday night against Boston. Davis has been dealing with an injured hip, but he should be back and ready to go. However, it is still something to keep an eye on. Davis is most likely a game-time decision.

Jusuf Nurkic – Trail Blazers

Nurkic missed the second half of the Blazers game against the Clippers on Saturday night, as he suffered an injury to his right shoulder. It looks like a bruised right shoulder for Nurkic, and he could be ready to go for Portland in their next game. It looks like a day-to-day kind of feel for Nurkic at this point.

Donovan Mitchell – Jazz

Mitchell suffered an injury to his ribs during last week and will miss a second straight game to start this week, as he has been ruled out for the Jazz’s game with the Pacers on Monday. His opportunity to play could be against the Nets on Wednesday. Expect Royce O’Neale and Alec Burks to benefit in Mitchell’s absence.

Dwight Howard – Wizards

Howard continues to deal with a lower-body issue that has caused him to miss the Wizards last three games. Howard could miss a fourth straight against the Rockets. If Howard is out, Thomas Bryant should get the start at Center for Washington.
