NBA Injury Report: Jaylen Brown questionable, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander questionable, and updates on LeBron James and Tyler Herro | November 30, 2022

Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics
NBA injury report headlined by status of Jaylen Brown and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

The Boston Celtics, who own the best record in the NBA, may miss Jaylen Brown's services tonight against the Miami Heat. JB was also sidelined when the Celtics won versus the Charlotte Hornets on Monday. Brown is reportedly dealing with neck stiffness.

The Celtics probably just rested him since they were playing the second night of a back-to-back. Boston may have wanted him to take the night off as he played plenty of minutes in the team’s win over the Washington Wizards on Sunday without Jayson Tatum.

Jaylen Brown is averaging career-highs in scoring, rebounding and field-goal percentage. He is putting up 26.1 points on 50.7% shooting, along with 5.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals per contest.

Derrick White started in place of Brown against the Charlotte Hornets, and could do the same against the Heat if JB remains sidelined.

Meanwhile, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the OKC Thunder is also questionable for their game against the San Antonio Spurs. He is dealing with a left hip contusion, which could see him in street clothes when OKC takes on San Antonio.

“SGA,” who’s making a case for his first NBA All-Star selection, has been nearly unstoppable for the Thunder. The Canadian is having a career-best season in scoring, assists, steals and blocks.

Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 31.1 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.2 blocks. He is the biggest reason why the Thunder have been surprisingly competitive this season.

Should OKC keep Shai Gilgeous-Alexander out of this game, he will have plenty of time to rest before the Thunder’s next outing, which will be on December 3. Tre Mann could take his place in the starting lineup for tonight’s game.

LeBron James: Left adductor strain; Injured since November 9, 2022

LeBron James is expected to play against the Portland Trail Blazers tonight.

LeBron James has consistently been on the LA Lakers’ injury report this season. He is listed yet again as probable due to a groin injury. He suffered the injury against the LA Clippers on November 9 and missed five games.

James has played in the Lakers’ last three games, including their stunning loss to the Indiana Pacers last Monday. “King James” was listed as probable for that game but played 36 minutes and finished with 21 points, seven rebounds and three assists.

LeBron James is averaging 25.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.2 steals in his 20th season in the NBA. Although his numbers have been very impressive, he has struggled with his shooting. He is hitting 45.5% of his shots, including a career-worst 28.9% from 3-point range.

Unless something drastic happens, the four-time NBA MVP should be available tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Tyler Herro of the Miami Heat has been dealing with a left ankle sprain for almost a month now. He missed eight games due to that injury before playing in Miami’s last three.

The reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year winner played 40 minutes on Sunday versus the Atlanta Hawks and finished with a triple-double. Herro was only 3-13 from the field, missing all eight of his 3-point shots but still had an impact on the team’s win. He ended the night with 11 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists.

Herro reportedly felt a little pain in his ankle after playing heavy minutes against the Hawks. He could be sidelined yet again when the Miami Heat visit the Boston Celtics, owners of the NBA’s best record.

Miami holds a 10-11 win-loss record largely due to injuries to Herro and Jimmy Butler. Both players have only played 13 games for the Heat.

If Herro is sidelined, he could return on December 2 in a rematch with the Boston Celtics.
