There’s only a handful of weeks remaining in the 2021-22 regular season as the NBA enters its stretch run to the playoffs. Unfortunately, many teams, including top contenders in each conference, are still shorthanded as they deal with injuries to key players.
In the Western Conference, Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul has a thumb injury that will keep him out for most of the remainder of the regular season, Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green is still out indefinitely with a back injury, Paul George may not return to the Los Angeles Clippers this season and Anthony Davis is likely out another several weeks with a mid-foot sprain.
Meanwhile, in the Eastern Conference, the flailing Brooklyn Nets got Kevin Durant back from the MCL sprain that has kept him out for a month, and Orlando Magic guard Markelle Fultz returned after over a year on the sidelines due to a torn ACL. The Chicago Bulls, though, are still without the likes of Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso, while the Milwaukee Bucks are still missing Brook Lopez.
As the season rolls along, here’s a look at the most significant injuries around the league, and when these players might be back on the court. To see more injury updates around the league, click here.
