Payne, Shamet, Jovic, Green, Antetokounmpo, Holiday, Middleton, and Hill injury updates

Cameron Payne (right foot strain) and Landry Shamet (sore right Achilles) of the Sun’s reserve guards have had their statuses changed to probable for Phoenix’s game against the Knicks tomorrow, according to Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic. Both of them have missed several games.

Devin Booker, an All-Star shooting guard, Jae Crowder, and Cameron Johnson, both power forwards, are still out for Phoenix on a long-term basis due to injuries to their right meniscus. Crowder has been away from the Suns this entire season in an effort to secure a trade.

We have further information about injuries:

According to Ira Winderman of The South Florida Sun Sentinel, rookie Miami power forward Nikola Jovic has been sidelined with back spasms while practicing with the Heat’s G League team, the Sioux Falls Skyforce.

Josh Green, the Mavericks’ shooting guard, is still out for Monday’s game against the Rockets due to a sprained right elbow, according to the organization. It was reportedly evaluated again on Friday. Dallas also says Maxi Kleber (right hamstring surgery), out indefinitely, and Dorian Finney-Smith (right adductor strain), out for at least another week, will not be available.

As they take on the Wizards tonight, the Bucks might be without their top three players, according to Josh Robbins of The Athletic. While All-NBA big Giannis Antetokounmpo (sore left knee) and backup point guard George Hill (non-coronavirus illness) are both questionable to play, Khris Middleton (sore right knee) and Jrue Holiday (non-coronavirus illness) will miss the game against Washington.
