Before locking in your NBA picks, it is important to take a look at the latest injury reports to help determine exactaly which squad will take the floor tonight. Which key players have made the list today, and how will their absence hurt their team's performance?

Every day I look at the NBA injury report. I start off with the first team and see who is listed on the report. These are the average number of points these teams will be without tonight.

HERE IS MY TABLE FOR CALCULATING INJURIES

OUT: Take players average points per game and multiply by 1
DOUBTFUL: Take players average points per game and multiply by .75
QUESTIONABLE: Take players average points per game and multiply by .50
PROBABLE: Take players average points per game and multiply by .25

Here are the results for today’s NBA matchups for Monday 11-10-14!  Beside the players name in parenthesis you will find the calculated Rocketman number for each players injury. Beside the team you will find the total Rocketman number for each team's injury report.

Hope this helps out some. This system hits big percentages when we have a differential of 20 or more and the trends add up to leaning to that same team. It takes a little time to do this every day but it pays off in the end!  No plays for Monday fit the 20 point differential and the trend analysis I use.

PLAY ON: None

FAVORITE PLAY WITH THIS SYSTEM TONIGHT:  None

The one thing that sticks out in today's match ups is the Indiana Pacers injured list. Paul George and David West haven't played this year so their points per game average sits at 0.0.  If we go back and use last years stats, those two Pacer stars combined for 35.7 points per game by themselves. Even if we did add in the fact that Pacers are missing that much tonight, I still wouldn't recommend a play on the other side.  Would leave it alone.
