12/8/2022 Kawhi Leonard, LAC, G-F
Leonard will sit out Thursday's game at Miami, the second of a back-to-back for the Clippers.

Analysis: Leonard did see a season-high 30 minutes in Wednesday's game at Orlando and should be back when the Clippers visit Washington on Saturday. Nicolas Batum, Luke Kennard and Amir Coffey could be in line for more minutes against the Heat.
12/8/2022 John Wall, LAC, PG
Wall was held out of Wednesday's game at Orlando but will play when the Clippers visit Miami on Thursday.

Analysis: Wall should receive his usual range of minutes and has been very good of late with averages of 16.6 points and 5.6 assists over his last five games.
12/8/2022 Kyle Lowry, MIA, PG
Lowry (rest) won't play Thursday against the Clippers.

Analysis: Lowry, who has night missed a game all season and ranks fifth in the league in minutes played, has been dealing with some left ankle discomfort and the Heat will give him a night off.
12/7/2022 Jalen Smith, IND, F-C
Smith (sore right knee) won't play Wednesday's game at Minnesota.

Analysis: Smith will be missing his first game of the season and is averaging a career-high 23.5 minutes per game, so it's possible the Pacers start monitoring his playing time more.
12/7/2022 LeBron James, LAL, F
James (rest) will not play when the Lakers conclude a back-to-back set Wednesday in Toronto.

Analysis: Lonnie Walker and Austin Reaves will likely play key roles with the Lakers being cautious with their star player.
12/7/2022 Luguentz Dort, OKC, G-F
Dort (left knee contusion) will not play Wednesday at Memphis.

Analysis: It will be the first missed game of the season for Dort, who is averaging 14.2 points and 4.6 rebounds. Aleksej Pokusevski could move into the starting lineup, and in 16 starts this season, he's averaging 9.6 points and 5.1 rebounds.
12/7/2022 Al Horford, BOS, F-C
Horford has entered the NBA's health and safety protocols.

Analysis: Blake Griffin is expected to start and Luke Kornet could play more while Horford is out.
12/7/2022 Devin Vassell, SAS, G-F
Vassell (knee) didn't practice Wednesday and is doubtful to play Thursday against the Rockets.

Analysis: Vassell was injured late in Sunday's loss to the Suns after scoring 14 points in 31 minutes. Some good news for the Spurs is Josh Richardson (ankle) is expected to return after missing the last six games.
12/7/2022 Lauri Markkanen, UTA, F
Markkanen (illness) won't play Wednesday against the Warriors.

Analysis: Without Markkanen and Mike Conley against Golden State, Jordan Clarkson and Malik Beasley will shoulder a larger load of the offense.
12/7/2022 Stephen Curry, GSW, PG
Curry (left ankle soreness) won't play Wednesday at Utah.

Analysis: This might just be a breather for Curry, who had an off-night shooting in Monday's loss to the Pacers, misfiring on 14-of-17 shots and finishing with a season-low 12 points. Jordan Poole and Donte DiVincenzo will see an uptick in minutes against the Jazz with Curry out.
