NBL22 Round 1 - Injury Update
Ahead of the NBL22 season commencing on December 3, here are the latest updates out of every Club when it comes to injuries and player availability.
This page will be updated as news is released by Clubs leading into their respective games.
The Adelaide 36ers will come into the opening round with a number of outs including Kai Sotto (knee), Emmanuel Malou (knee) and Sunday Dech (quadricep).
Hyrum Harris also won't take part in the Sixers season opener in Perth due to border restrictions preventing him from travelling into WA.
The Bullets didn't see Isaiah Moss take the floor in the preseason Blitz and that will continue into the regular season with a hamstring injury ruling the import guard out of Round 1 play.
Chris Goulding has been ruled out of Melbourne's opening round game against Sydney after suffering an injury during the team's practice on Tuesday afternoon.
An MRI on his left hamstring revealed the injury to be minor, with Goulding out of the game against the season opener against the Kings and a game-time decision for Throwdown XIII against South East Melbourne on December 12.
Jack White continues his recovery from the achilles injury he suffered last season with a return date yet to be specificed.
South East Melbourne Phoenix
Star big man Zhou Qi will be a gametime decision for South East Melbourne's season opener against New Zealand. Qi joined the Chinese National Team during the most recent FIBA World Cup Qualification window injuring his ankle against Japan.
Qi will have 72 hours of quarantine with a fitness test on Saturday morning determining if he will be available to face the Breakers.
New import Devin Thomas won't be suiting up after being forced to quarantine after unfortunately being on the same flight as two positive Omicron cases.
The Wildcats will begin their season without point guard Mitch Norton who has been ruled out with a knee injury that is expected to sideline him for up to five weeks.
While initial scans cleared Norton of structural damage, Wildcats medical staff have opted to take a cautious approach. Norton hyperextended his right knee at a training session earlier this month and experienced bone bruising.
Michael Frazier II will be missing for the Wildcats due to leg soreness while Matt Hodgson is a game time decision. Development Player Corey Shervill will be in the lineup for Perth.
Todd Blanchfield remains sidelined after undergoing knee surgery during the off-season.
Team captain Clint Steindl is the main question mark coming into the JackJumpers' first NBL game at MyState Bank Arena with the Club indicating they'd know more about his status after a training session on Thursday. Steindl injured his wrist during the Blitz in preseason.
Next Star Nikita Mikhailovskii has been ruled out out with a foot injury.
