4/21/2021 Alec Burks, NY, G-F
Burks remains in the NBA's health and safety protocols.

Analysis: Burks is averaging 14.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in his last 19 games. Derrick Rose and Immanuel Quickley will likely be counted on to provide scoring off the bench with Burks out.

Jackson (meniscus surgery recovery) is questionable to make his season debut Wednesday against the Clippers.

Analysis: Jackson played three games in the NBA's bubble to finish his 2019-20 regular season before undergoing knee surgery. The Grizzlies are sure to be careful with a key young player, but Jackson averaged 17.4 points last season and would provide an immediate upgrade if and when he plays this year.
4/19/2021 Marcus Smart, Bos, G
Smart (illness) has been ruled out Monday when the Celtics play the Bulls.

Analysis: Smart was added to the injury report Monday morning but Boston will get Jaylen Brown back after he sat out Saturday with an illness.

4/19/2021 Domantas Sabonis, Ind, F-C
Sabonis (lower back) will miss a second straight game Wednesday against the Thunder.
