NBA Finals injury tracker: Which players are out? originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The NBA Finals are here, and the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics are getting healthier.
Which players are dealing with injuries, and how long will they be out for?
Here’s a team-by-team guide to injuries for the teams that are still standing:
Robert Williams: Day-to-day (knee)
Williams played in Game 1 of the Finals after being listed as questionable due to a knee injury. He was again listed as questionable for Sunday’s Game 2 before being ruled active, meaning every Celtic will be active.
Golden State Warriors
Gary Payton II: Day-to-day (elbow)
Otto Porter Jr.: Day-to-day (foot)
Andre Iguodala: Day-to-day (knee)
James Wiseman: Out (knee)
Payton was active for Game 1 but did not log any minutes, nearly a month after a Dillon Brooks’ Flagrant 2 foul left him with a fractured elbow. Porter did not play in the Warriors’ Game 5 clincher against Dallas due to foot soreness, but he returned for Game 1 against Boston. Both are questionable for Game 2, but they are expected to be active.
Iguodala will not play in Game 2 of the Finals due to right knee inflammation. The veteran hadn’t played since Game 4 of the Warriors’ first-round series against the Nuggets, but he returned for 12 minutes in Game 1.
Wiseman was shut down for the season on March 25. The No. 2 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft did not play for Golden State at all this year after tearing his meniscus last April.
