Injury Status Domantas Sabonis


Injury Status: Active

UPDATE (Jan. 23): Sabonis finished Saturday’s 129-127 loss to the 76ers with 16 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3P, 2-4 FT), 10 assists, and nine rebounds in 38 minutes.

Sabonis was close to breaking his streak of 21 straight games with a double-double, but his 10 assists saved him on a night when rebounds were harder to come by. Sabonis has more value in points leagues than in category leagues because he doesn’t usually do much in terms of steals, blocks, or three-pointers, and because he’s only made 75.3% of his free throws this season.

UPDATE (Jan. 21): Domantas Sabonis is healthy enough to play against the 76ers on Saturday.

Sabonis will play his usual role when he comes back from being sick for one game. The big man has given at least seven assists in each of his last seven games. In 36.6 minutes per game this month, he is averaging 20.0 points, 13.9 rebounds, and 9.1 assists.

Domantas Sabonis (illness) is questionable for Friday’s game against the Thunder.

Sabonis missed the game on Wednesday and did not practice on Thursday because he is still sick with something that is not COVID. Before Friday’s game at 10 p.m. EST, fantasy managers will need to keep an eye on his condition because his availability will depend a lot on how he feels during pre-game warmups.

If he didn’t play, Richaun Holmes would probably start again and get more minutes.

Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee says that Sabonis didn’t practice on Thursday because he was sick.

Sabonis missed Wednesday’s game against the Lakers because he was sick with something that wasn’t COVID. He also didn’t show up to practice on Thursday, which isn’t a good sign. If he gets hurt again, Richaun Holmes is likely to keep getting more playing time for Sacramento.
