Saturday NBA Injury News

The Los Angeles Lakers will be without their starting point guard, Dennis Schroder for Saturday’s primetime game against the Miami Heat due to health and safety protocols. Schroder was a late scratch from Thursday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets and the Lakers are already missing Anthony Davis for a few weeks. Kyle Kuzma and Markieff Morris have been listed as probable.

The Charlotte Hornets have listed Gordon Hayward as probable for the second straight contest due to lower back discomfort. The Hornets last played on Sunday, and despite the probable tag then, Hayward was ruled out. Devonte’ Graham will sit out Saturday with a knee injury and PJ Washington has been removed from the injury report after being in the league’s health and safety protocols.

Richaun Holmes, Harrison Barnes , and Glenn Robinson III are all questionable ahead of Saturday’s game against the Chicago Bulls. Holmes and Barnes both missed the Kings’ last game on Thursday.
