1/26/2022 Grayson Allen, MIL, G-F
Allen will serve his one-game suspension for his hard foul on the Bulls' Alex Caruso when the Bucks visit Cleveland on Wednesday.

Analysis: It will be the second straight missed game for Allen, who sat out the second end of a back-to-back Saturday - a day after being ejected from the Bucks' win over Chicago for his Flagrant 2 foul that broke Caruso's wrist. Donte DiVincenzo stepped up in Allen's absence with a season-high 20 points Saturday against the Kings.
1/26/2022 JaVale McGee, PHX, C
McGee will miss Wednesday's game against Utah due to a sore left knee.

Analysis: McGee's absence is notable because he's started the Suns' last four games in place of the injured DeAndre Ayton. With Ayton still recovering, Bismack Biyombo could make his first start of the season against the Jazz.
1/26/2022 Nicolas Claxton, BKN, C
Claxton (rest) will not play in the Nets' game against Denver on Wednesday.

Analysis: Claxton just returned from a seven-game absence caused by a hamstring injury Tuesday against the Lakers, and the Nets aren't ready to have him play on consecutive nights just yet. LaMarcus Aldridge and Day'Ron Sharpe will handle the center position against the Nuggets.
1/26/2022 Terence Davis, SAC, G-F
Davis will not play Wednesday against the Hawks after injuring his right wrist in the Kings' loss at Boston on Tuesday.

Analysis: Davis exited Tuesday's contest in the second quarter after taking a hard fall that caused him to hit his head on the floor, though he apparently has avoided a concussion. The Kings hope the injury is minor, as he's come alive lately by averaging 19 points over his last five games.
1/25/2022 Jonas Valanciunas, NOP, C
Valanciunas (rest) won't play Tuesday against the 76ers.

Analysis: Valanciunas is one of several Pelicans sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back, with Devonte' Graham, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart also out.
1/25/2022 Devonte' Graham, NOP, G
Graham (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday against the 76ers.

Analysis: Graham is one of several Pelicans sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back, with Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart also out. Jose Alvarado will likely start in the place of Graham.
1/25/2022 Josh Hart, NOP, G-F
Hart (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday against the 76ers.

Analysis: Hart is one of several Pelicans sitting out on the second half of a back-to-back, with Jonas Valanciunas, Brandon Ingram and Devonte' Graham also out. Nickeill Alexander-Walker will likely start in the place of Hart.
1/25/2022 Fred VanVleet, TOR, G
VanVleet (knee) is listed questionable for Wednesday's game against Chicago after missing the Raptors' win over Charlotte on Tuesday.

Analysis: VanVleet had played in 13 consecutive games after returning from a stint in COVID-19 protocols, so Tuesday's absence may have been for rest purposes. Gary Trent filled in ably against the Hornets with a season-high 32 points.
1/25/2022 Mo Bamba, ORL, C
Bamba will play Wednesday against the Clippers despite reportedly spraining his right ankle in Tuesday's practice.

Analysis: The injury makes Bamba a risky fantasy play, as he saw just seven minutes of time Sunday against the Bulls as Moritz Wagner dropped in 23 points off the bench. Bamba is just a week removed from a career-high 32-point effort against the 76ers, however.
1/25/2022 De'Andre Hunter, ATL, F
Hunter (back) is questionable for Wednesday against the Kings.

Analysis: Hunter is averaging 16.3 points in seven games after returning from wrist surgery that sidelined him for two months.
1/25/2022 Marcus Morris Sr., LAC, F-C
Morris (personal) will miss a second straight game when the Clippers visit Orlando on Wednesday.

Analysis: Terance Mann started in Morris' place Tuesday against the Wizards and had a solid game with 16 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 32 minutes.
1/25/2022 Scottie Barnes, TOR, F
Barnes (wrist) is listed questionable for Wednesday's game at Chicago after missing the Raptors' win over Charlotte on Tuesday.

Analysis: Chris Boucher figures to draw another start should Barnes continue to be held out. Boucher had 12 points and seven rebounds along with a pair of blocks against the Hornets.
1/25/2022 Will Barton, DEN, G-F
Barton (right hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets after sitting out the Nuggets' win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

Analysis: Barton's absence Tuesday could have been more of a rest day than anything else. The swingman had compiled 41 points, 11 rebounds and 13 assists over a two-game stretch prior to sitting out.
1/25/2022 Garrett Temple, NOP, G-F
Garrett Temple scored two points Tuesday on 1-of-4 shooting as the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Philadelphia 76ers 117-107. Temple grabbed five rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -6 in his 24:44 on the floor. He added one block.
