Week 5 NBA Key Injury Report

Photo of the pickswise logo

As the NBA season goes on it seems like more and more players are piling up injuries. This last week was no different with some key role players going down for an extended period of time. Below is an extensive search and update of key players who are on the NBA Key Injury Report.

Caris LeVert Brooklyn Nets

The nastiest looking injury of the week went to Caris LeVert who went down hard on his right league against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The entire arena went silent and he had to be stretchered off.

As bad as the injury looked he actually did escape major injury with the dislocation of his right foot being the only major concern. He escaped any ligament damage which should make the recovery a more speedy process but he is still expected to be out until late in this season.

Luke Kennard Detroit Pistons

Luke Kennard underwent another evaluation this week and it has been determined that he will be out at least another two weeks with an AC Joint Sprain.

Kennard only played in three games before going down with the injury and although not a key contributor to the team he is a good role player off the bench.

Stephen Curry Golden State Warriors

The team announced on Wednesday (November 14th) that Curry would miss at least the next ten days as he tries to recover from a groin injury.

He is slated to travel on the team’s next road trip but not play, which is a good thing because the locker rom has fallen apart without him.

Kevin Durant and Draymond Green aren’t getting along and maybe Curry’s extra time on the bench can help repair that relationship.

Michael Beasley Los Angeles Lakers

Michael Beasley is away from the team dealing with a personal issue. It’s unclear exactly when Beasley will return but this isn’t going to be a real big issue with the team.

He has had problems finding the court this season and although he is a veteran, how much his presence is felt in the lineup is unclear.

Chandler Parsons Memphis Grizzlies

Chandler Parsons name really should just be cemented in the weekly injury report, because he is always missing time. Parsons is still dealing with a knee injury and is expected to miss at least two more weeks.

He really can’t be counted on so although he is still a good player, the Grizzlies probably aren’t missing him much, because they don’t know what it’s like with him on the court.

James Johnson Miami Heat

James Johnson is still dealing with a groin injury and when asked about the injury Johnson didn’t really give a good answer on when he would be returning but made it clear he wouldn’t be doing until he felt 100 percent healthy.

Raul Neto Utah Jazz

Raul Neto has been cleared again for games after his hamstring injury and has been sent down to the G-League to complete a rehab assignment.

Once he is back in the NBA the Jazz will get a bench piece back that can really provide a spark off the bench.
