LiAngelo Ball SG FA
Tue 11/29/22 9:24 PM
Ball finished with 26 points (10-15 FG, 6-10 3Pt), three assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Monday's 130-87 win over Westchester.

Shaedon Sharpe G POR
Tue 11/29/22 9:11 PM
Sharpe (illness) is available to play Tuesday against the Clippers.
EDGE AnalysisAs expected, Sharpe will be available for the Blazers on Tuesday despite battling an illness. The rookie has averaged 8.0 points and 2.4 rebounds across 19 outings this year.
OUTJeremy Sochan F/C SAS
Tue 11/29/22 9:06 PM
Sochan (quadriceps) will likely be sidelined for a week, although his injury isn't considered serious, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
EDGE AnalysisSochan has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game due to a right quadriceps contusion. The Spurs are notoriously cautious with injuries and are likely just making sure their rookie forward fully recovers during a rebuilding year. With Sochan out, Doug McDermott should see extended playing time.
OUTJakob Poeltl C SAS
Tue 11/29/22 9:06 PM
Poeltl (knee) will likely miss a week, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
EDGE AnalysisPoeltl suffered a right knee bruise during the Spurs' loss to the Lakers on Saturday and will now remain sidelined for at least another week. Thus, the center will presumably be unavailable for the team's next three matchups before possibly being considered questionable Dec. 8 against the Rockets. Zach Collins will likely slide into the starting lineup with Poeltl out.
Jason Preston G LAC
Tue 11/29/22 8:58 PM
Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said that Preston is likely to see minutes in Thursday's matchup with the Trail Blazers, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
EDGE AnalysisPreston has only appeared in one game this season, but will likely see action in the first night of the Clippers' back-to-back. Lue also mentioned that Preston has made good decisions running the offense, and he will likely get a chance to do so Tuesday with Kawhi Leonard (ankle), Paul George (hamstring), Luke Kennard (calf) and John Wall (rest) all out.
Moussa Diabate PF LAC
Tue 11/29/22 8:52 PM
Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said that Diabate is likely to see time in Tuesday's game against Portland, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
EDGE AnalysisDiabate has only appeared in two games for the Clippers this season. However, Lue mentioned that Diabate has improved greatly since training camp and will likely give some of their key rotation players rest during the first night of a back-to-back.
DTDTrey Lyles PF/C SAC
Tue 11/29/22 8:46 PM
Lyles (illness) is doubtful to play in Wednesday's game against the Pacers.
EDGE AnalysisLyles will likely miss his second-consecutive game due to a non-COVID illness. However, Lyles will have extra time to recover for Saturday's game against the Clippers.
OUTDamian Lillard PG POR
Tue 11/29/22 8:39 PM
Trail Blazers coach Chauncey Billups said Tuesday that Lillard (calf) is feeling better and is starting to do on-court work, but still has not timetable on a return, Sean Highkin of RoseGardenReport.com reports.
EDGE AnalysisLillard has missed the last four games due to a calf strain he suffered Nov. 19 against the Jazz. The superstar point guard originally believed that the injury would only keep him out for a few games, but it may be much longer. Justise Winslow will likely continue to start in his absence. Lillard is almost certainly out for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, meaning a return for Saturday's game against the Jazz is the earliest possibility.
DTDZeke Nnaji PF/C DEN
Tue 11/29/22 8:30 PM
Nnaji is questionable to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Rockets due to a non-COVID illness.
EDGE AnalysisNnaji is questionable to miss his first game since Nov. 9. If Nnaji can't play Wednesday, his next opportunity will be in Friday's game against Atlanta.
