The 2022 NBA playoffs are in full swing, and second-round action is set to get underway, We’ve already seen all sorts of incredible action on the floor. Unfortunately, there’s also been a number of injuries, as contenders in each conference, including last season’s finalists — the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns — dealing with injury issues. 

Milwaukee will be without Khris Middleton in the second round against the Boston Celtics. Meanwhile, Devin Booker missed three games in the first round due to a hamstring strain, but he returned to close out the series and should be good to go for the second round. Also, 76ers center Joel Embiid is out indefinitely with a fractured orbital bone and a mild concussion.
