NBA injury report, October 30: Updates for Anthony Davis, Zach LaVine, Damian Lillard, Zion Williamson, more

We have 11 games on Friday’s NBA schedule and with a busy schedule comes a full injury report. There are a handful of stars who have already been ruled out, while some are recovering and making their way back to court. Here’s Friday’s injury report at the federation, along with relevant fantasy and betting advice.

NBA Injury Report: October 30

Atlanta Hawks versus Detroit Pistons

Jaden Ivey (illness) – doubtful

Ivey didn’t play in the team’s last game, but he’s been solid so far this season. If he doesn’t play, Cory Joseph will likely get the start for Detroit.

Charlotte Hornets vs. Orlando Magic

LaMelo Ball (ankle) – OUT
Terry Rozier (ankle) – doubtful
Cody Martin (square) – doubtful

Dennis Smith Jr. was set to start again with both Ball and Rozier out. Gordon Hayward and Kelly Oubre Jr. will stand in line for more minutes while Martin remains seated.

Cleveland Cavaliers versus Boston Celtics

Darius Garland (eye) – OUT

Garland continues to miss time with his eye injury. Look for Caris LeVert, Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro to continue scoring big minutes with Garland.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Toronto Raptors

No significant everyday injuries at this time.

Indiana Pacers vs. Washington Wizards

Daniel Theis (knee) – OUT

Theis stays out, but the Pacers got Myles Turner back. The front court rotation of him, Isaiah Jackson and Jalen Smith should remain intact.

Bradley Beal (rear) – Expected to play

Beal isn’t officially on the injury report, although we know back problems can flare up. For now, we list him as expected.

New York Knicks versus Milwaukee Bucks

Quentin Grimes (foot) – OUT

Grimes is out with a foot injury meaning Evan Fournier and Immanuel Quickley should continue to get solid minutes in backcourt.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Russell Westbrook (hamstring) – Doubtful
Anthony Davis (rear) – questionable
LeBron James (foot) – probably

The Lakers have some real issues to work through and Davis, who may get slammed for this matchup, is no good. LA will likely have Patrick Beverley and Damian Jones for big minutes if Westbrook and Davis are out.

Kyle Anderson (rear) – questionable

If Anderson doesn’t pass, Jaden McDaniels, Taurean Prince and Jaylen Nowall will all see extra minutes.

Chicago Bulls versus San Antonio Spurs

Zach LaVine (injury management) – questionable

This is the first game of a back-to-back set for Chicago, so LaVine is scheduled to play one of those games. If he plays on Friday, he probably won’t be on the pitch on Saturday.

Devin Vassell (knee) – OUT
Josh Primo (glutes) – OUT

With both Vassell and Primo out, Josh Richardson becomes a strong asset to Fantasy/DFS lineups.

Utah Jazz vs. Denver Nuggets

Collin Sexton (oblique) – questionable

Sexton was one of the best players for Utah early in the season. If he can’t play, Jordan Clarkson and Mike Conley should be there for more minutes. Malik Beasley could also get more run in the rotation.

Michael Porter Jr. (Injury Management) – Doubtful

Porter Jr. missed Wednesday’s game against the Lakers but is expected to play on Friday. If he continues to sit out, Bruce Brown, Aaron Gordon and Jeff Green will all see more time on the floor.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Phoenix Suns

Zion Williamson (hip) – Doubtful
Jose Alvarado (rear) – Doubtful
CJ McCollum (hand) – questionable
Herbert Jones (knee) – questionable

On top of all those injuries, Dyson Daniels is also questionable and Brandon Ingram remains on the concussion record. Jonas Valanciunas appears to be the safest play in fantasy/DFS lineups from the Pelicans.

Houston Rockets vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Alperen Sengun (disease) – probably
Kevin Porter Jr. (rear) – probably

The Rockets have built an exciting group of young players and must evaluate them together. Sengun and Porter Jr. should be ready and both should start in this competition.

Damian Lillard (Calf) – OUT

Lillard will be out for 1-2 weeks with this injury. Anfernee Simons was scheduled to start in his place on Friday.
