Recent NBA Analysis

Aug. 7 - Jonathan Isaac (ORL)

Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac has exited the bubble with a torn ACL. It's the second major knee injury for the 22-year-old this season. Isaac managed to avoid tearing ligaments when his campaign was cut short on New Year's Day but the hiatus allowed him just enough time to get back on the court. This set back will stretch into the 2020-21 campaign, limiting some serious momentum that he has begun to show as one of the league's elite young defenders.Jonathan Isaac Profile Page

Aug. 7 - Jaren Jackson Jr. (MEM)

Grizzlies unicorn Jaren Jackson Jr. has been shut down on account of a torn meniscus and will no longer play in the bubble. The 20-year-old remains an intriguing dynasty asset given his rare combination of length, interior defense and three-point shooting. This is the second year in a row, however, that his campaign has ended early. His rookie year was cut short due to a badly bruised thigh.Jaren Jackson Jr. Profile Page

Aug. 7 - Ben Simmons (PHI)

The Sixers revealed that Ben Simmons has partially dislocated his kneecap. No set treatment plan has been revealed but it's unlikely that we see Simmons back on the court in the bubble.Ben Simmons Profile Page

Aug. 7 - Jimmy Butler (MIA)

Lingering foot soreness will cost Jimmy Butler a third straight game in the bubble. It's unclear when the 30-year-old will make his return for the Miami Heat. They could use him to help secure favorable seeding in the East but they won't risk rushing him back so close to the postseason.Jimmy Butler Profile Page

Aug. 4 - Brandon Ingram (NOR)

Brandon Ingram's star turn in his first campaign with the New Orleans Pelicans will surely earn him a substantial pay raise when his rookie contract expires but the real question that fantasy GMs will need to answer is what his role will look like when the team builds around Zion Williamson. With Williamson and Jrue Holiday both capable of shouldering much of the offensive load, the team may not need Ingram to drop 30 every night, even if he's capable of it.Brandon Ingram Profile Page

Aug. 3 - Jusuf Nurkic (POR)

After a 16-month layoff following a devastating leg break, Jusuf Nurkic has looked as dominant as ever for the Portland Trail Blazers. Nurkic may not put the ball in the bucket as often as he has in the bubble so far but he's a monster on the glass and frequently adds enough assists, steals and blocks to push his overall production to new heights.Jusuf Nurkic Profile Page

Jul. 31 - Spencer Dinwiddie (BKL)

At the advice of his doctors, Spencer Dinwiddie opted out of the league restart following a positive COVID-19 diagnosis. It's unclear what Dinwiddie's role with the Brooklyn Nets will be next year as Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant return to action but nobody can take Dinwiddie's 20-point per game season away from him.

Jul. 31 - LaMarcus Aldridge (SAS)

The San Antonio Spurs waited until after the league unveiled its playoff plan to announce that their veteran big man had undergone shoulder surgery and would miss the restart. He's under contract for one final year with the team next season.LaMarcus Aldridge Profile Page

Jul. 31 - Kyrie Irving (BKL)

A banged up Kyrie Irving opted out of the Disney World restart. The decision doesn't come as a major surprise given the lengthy issues Irving seemed to have with his shoulder. The hiatus, coupled with whatever offseason ends up taking place, should give Irving additional time to rest and heal before he and Kevin Durant team up for the Nets in 2020-21.Kyrie Irving Profile Page

Jul. 31 - Domantas Sabonis (IND)

It's possible that Domantas Sabonis makes his return to the Indiana Pacers before the team leaves the Disney World bubble but it may be too late for fantasy GMs. Sabonis left the team to get treatment on a severe case of plantar fasciitis. He hasn't formally been ruled out for the likely playoff-bound Pacers but it's unlikely he sees the floor in the eight-game restart.Domantas Sabonis Profile Page
