NBA Injury Report

With legal and regulated sports betting continuing to expand across the US, the NBA is second only in popularity to the NFL among US bettors. Even the most casual bettor could benefit from some basic research when betting the NBA and the injury report should be your first stop.

The NBA injury report lists both long and short term injuries which can affect both single-game bets and futures wagers more than any other sport. Teams must report their active 12 man roster everyday by 5pm local time unless a team is on the second day of a back-to-back, where they must report injuries, sickness or active rest of individual players by 1pm local time.

When betting the NBA, you need to factor in what the impact of an individual player has on that night’s particular matchup. For instance, if the Sixers are playing the Timberwolves and Karl-Anthony Towns is sitting out with knee soreness, you could expect Joel Embiid to have a big game as most backup centers can’t contain Embiid.

The injury report is just one of many resources we have to help you become a smarter NBA handicapper. Below is our list of resources to help you get ahead of the books and become a more educated NBA bettor.
