The NBA has changed their protocol for inconclusive COVID-19 tests.

Jonathan Isaac has reportedly suffered a torn left ACL.

Despite his COVID-19 conspiracies, Michael Porter Jr. broke out for a career-high 37 points vs. the Thunder on Monday, adding 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four triples in 44 minutes.

Nuggets center Nikola Jokic a monster triple double with 30 points, 12 rebounds, 10 assists in a win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Wesley Matthews will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nets with a right calf injury.

Lou Williams is questionable for Tuesday vs. the Suns.

Today’s Tankathon Sim

On today’s simulation we see the Cavs drop the lowest they can go to sixth overall. In this scenario, the Hawks would likely draft either LaMelo Ball or Isaac Okoro. After that, the Hornets would take either Ball or James Wiseman, the Wolves would take Obi Toppin, the Pistons select Killian Hayes, and the Warriors take the best big available in either Wiseman or Onyeka Okungwu. That leaves Cleveland and in this scenario, would take Devin Vassell - the smartest pick for this team.
