2/27/2021 Mike Conley, Uta, PG
Conley will sit out Saturday against the Magic as injury management for a previous hamstring strain.

Analysis: Jordan Clarkson and Donovan Mitchell will be expected to handle ball-handling duties.
2/27/2021 Kyrie Irving, Bkn, PG
Irving will sit out Saturday's game against the Mavericks due to injury recovery management (right shoulder).

Analysis: With Kevin Durant remaining out as well, James Harden will be the center of attention as Brooklyn looks for its ninth straight win.
2/26/2021 Tobias Harris, Phi, F
Harris, who left Thursday's game against Dallas with a right knee injury, will not play Saturday against the Cavaliers.

Analysis: According to The Athletic, an MRI taken on Harris' knee showed no structural damage and he's been diagnosed with a contusion. That should leave him day to day going forward. The 76ers may look for more offense from Seth Curry and Shake Milton with Harris sidelined.
2/26/2021 Jonas Valanciunas, Mem, C
Valanciunas is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers due to a sore left thigh.

Analysis: With this being the second end of a back-to-back with the Clippers, there's a chance of Valanciunas being held out. The big man posted his fifth straight double-double with 16 points and 15 rebounds Thursday against Los Angeles.
2/26/2021 Justise Winslow, Mem, PF
Winslow (rest) won't play in the Grizzlies' game against the Clippers on Friday.

Analysis: Winslow is just three games into a comeback from a hip injury that sidelined him over a year, so it's no surprise that he's being held out of the second of a back-to-back. De'Anthony Melton figures to get back into the rotation with Winslow sitting.
2/26/2021 Tyrese Haliburton, Sac, G
Haliburton will not play Friday at Detroit due to a sore left calf.

Analysis: Haliburton played 32 minutes Thursday against the Knicks and has had heavy playing time recently, so this may be a load management issue more than anything else. With the rookie out, the Kings may rely even more heavily on its backcourt of De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield.
2/26/2021 Pascal Siakam, Tor, F-C
Siakam has been placed in the NBA's health and safety protocol and will not be available through the All-Star game.

Analysis: The Raptors will now be without their leading scorer as well as most of their coaching staff for this game, and perhaps beyond. Chris Boucher's arrow will be pointing up as he likely gets more of an opportunity with Siakam sidelined.
2/26/2021 LaMarcus Aldridge, SA, F-C
Aldridge (wrist) is questionable Saturday against the Pelicans.

Analysis: Aldridge returned to the lineup in Wednesday's loss after missing time with a hip issue, and he is now dealing with a sore right wrist.
