Nwaba (ankle) did not practice Saturday due to lingering soreness and will not play during Sunday's game against the Suns, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Nwaba will miss his sixth straight game Sunday while nursing a sprained right ankle. In his stead, Denzel Valentine, Jerian Grant and Kris Dunn will likely continue being the main beneficiaries of his absence.
Nwaba is still dealing with some discomfort in his ankle when he cuts, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Nwaba is nearing the two-week mark since suffering a severely sprained ankle, but according to Johnson, there's a good chance he's out on the longer side of his original 2-to-4 week timetable. The fact that he still can't cut without soreness likely means he'll miss another handful of games, but he did at least ride the bike during Tuesday's practice and appears to be progressing well. A return to practice will give us a better indication that he's nearing a full recovery.
Nwaba (ankle) was seen riding a stationary bike on the sidelined while the rest of the team shot around Tuesday, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Nwaba shot around Monday, so it's unclear if he experienced a setback, or the coaching/medical staff is just trying to get his wind back up. Regardless, he's still progressing ahead of schedule. More word on his availability for Wednesday's contest should come following that day's morning shootaround.
Nwaba (ankle) was shooting around at Monday's practice, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.
Nwaba sprained his ankle last weekend against the Pelicans and was initially given a 2-to-4-week recovery timetable. He appears to be ahead of schedule, however, as coach Fred Hoiberg said he hopes to have Nwaba back at practice as early as Tuesday. With that in mind, it seems possible that Nwaba could return to game action within the next handful of days, perhaps as early as Wednesday against the Thunder or Friday against the Hornets.
Nwaba (ankle) will miss the next 2-to-4 weeks after spraining his ankle during Saturday's loss to New Orleans, Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald reports.
Nwaba moved into the starting lineup last week, but in his absence Paul Zipser is expected to step back in at one of the forward spots, with Bobby Portis (suspension) in line for some backup minutes. Prior to exiting Saturday, Nwaba played 20 minutes and put up seven points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.
