This is easily the hardest week to gauge injuries in the NBA. With the Western Conference playoff picture set and the Eastern Conference coming into focus, teams will begin to actively rest players (even more so than normal) and minor injuries will lead to conservative treatment plans. Teams looking for a few extra ping-pong balls for the impending lottery will also opt to sit seemingly healthy players over the next few days, creating a difficult course to navigate for fantasy owners. Rotowire’s Daily Lineups section remains the go-to option for leagues still operating, especially daily formats.

With that being said, let’s take a look at the injuries worth monitoring throughout the offseason in anticipation for the 2017-18 season.
