    • Raul Neto UTA PG
      Jazz's Raul Neto: Available to play Saturday
      19m ago

      Neto (thigs) is available for Saturday's game against the Magic, Andy Larsen of KSL.com repots.

      Neto, who was was listed as questionable with right thigh soreness, is healthy and can play Saturday after missing Wednesday's tilt against the Heat. In 11 games this year, the fourth-year guard is averaging 4.6 points and 2.5 assists in 11.2 minutes.

      Tyler Davis: Held out Friday
      20m ago

      Davis (ankle) did not play in Friday's win over the Hustle.

      Davis evidently suffered the injury during the win Wednesday over Raptors 905. One of better big man in the G League, it's unclear how long the Blue will be without their center. Richard Solomon got the start in Davis' absence and tallied a double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds).

      Bulls' Rawle Alkins: Recalled from G League
      25m ago

      Alkins was recalled from the G League on Saturday, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports. He will be available for Monday's game against the Thunder.

      With Zach LaVine (ankle) expected to miss multiple games, the Bulls will opt for some additional backcourt depth by bringing up Alkins. In the G League this season, he's averaged 15.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.0 steal while shooting 45.3 percent from the field and 38.3 percent from distance.

    • Dennis Smith Jr. DAL PG
      Mavericks' Dennis Smith: Deemed questionable for Sunday
      41m ago

      Coach Rick Carlisle labeled Smith (wrist) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Kings, Mike Peasley of ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM reports.

      Carlisle didn't elaborate on if an injury was plaguing Smith, but the 21-year-old uncertain status is more than likely related to sprained right wrist he's been nursing recently. The issue cost Smith four consecutive games before he returned to action for Thursday's 99-89 loss to the Suns, during which he started at point guard and played 27 minutes, finishing with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds, three steals and one assist. Reserve J.J. Barea (ankle) is also listed as questionable, so if neither he nor Smith is available Sunday, Jalen Brunson would assume the bulk of the playing time at point guard.

      Crowder will come off the bench Saturday against the Magic, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

      The move is matchup based, with Derrick Favors moving into the starting five to defend against the Magic's Aaron Gordon. When coming off the bench this season, Crowder has averaged 11.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 27.6 minutes.

      Favors will move in to the starting lineup in favor of Jae Crowder for Saturday's tilt with the Magic, primarily due to the matchup with Aaron Gordon. In 28 games this year, Favors has averaged 10.9 points and 7.0 rebounds in 23.1 minutes, with his playing time holding steady regardless of if he starts or not.

      Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Won't play Sunday
      2h ago

      Robinson (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game against the Pacers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

      Robinson doesn't appear to have made much progress on a sprained ankle he suffered in Friday's tilt with the Hornets. Although an official timetable for his return hasn't been made clear, fortunately for Robinson, the X-rays came back negative which indicates that he could be back sooner rather than later. In his stead, Noah Vonleh and Luke Kornet figure to see a boost in minutes.

      Pachulia will miss Saturday's game with a sickness that cropped up sometime between Wednesday and Saturday. In his place, John Leuer figures to see an increase in run.

      Horford (kneecap) remains out Saturday against the Pistons, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

      As expected, Horford will need more time to recover from Patellofemoral pain syndrome in his left knee. Aron Baynes should continue starting until Horford is healthy enough to play.

      McGee is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets due to an illness, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.

      McGee was held out of shootaround, so the Lakers will keep an eye on him throughout the day before making an official call on his status closer to tip-off. If McGee sits, expect Tyson Chandler to pick up increased minutes, with rookie Mo Wagner potentially in line for a bigger role, as well.

    • Marvin Bagley III SAC PF
      Kings' Marvin Bagley: Set to miss 10-to-14 days
      2h ago

      Bagley was diagnosed with a left knee bone bruise after exiting Friday's 130-125 loss to the Warriors and will be re-evaluated in 10-to-14 days, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

      Bagley played just five minutes before departing with the injury and will now be sidelined for at least five games after team doctors assessed his condition. It's a disappointing setback for the rookie, who had settled into a groove of late with double-digit scoring outputs in nine of his last 10 games before Friday while converting at a 58.6 percent clip from the field. For at least the game against the Warriors, Bagley's absence resulted in coach Dave Joerger deploying Justin Jackson as the primary backup to starting power forward Nemanja Bjelica, while Kosta Koufos handled all of the minutes at center behind Willie Cauley-Stein. It's possible one of Harry Giles, Skal Labissiere or Troy Williams could eventually claim a consistent rotation role as well while Bagley is sidelined.

      Mirotic (ankle) didn't participate in Saturday's practice, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

      Mirotic, who missed Wednesday's tilt with the Thunder due to a injured right ankle, wasn't able to practice Saturday, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Bucks in jeopardy. An official designation on Mirotic's availability will be given closer to gametime, but his inability to practice doesn't bode well for Sunday's game. If Mirotic were forced to miss a second-straight game, Wesley Johnson and Cheick Diallo would be in line for a boost in minutes.

      Siakam (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

      Siakam is experiencing back stiffness following a hard fall during Friday's loss to the Trail Blazers. The injury isn't considered serious, but the forward is at risk of missing Sunday's game. If he's sidelined, OG Anunoby would probably see an increased role.

      Jackson emerged from Thursday's win over the Mavericks with a sprained toe, putting his status for Saturday's game into question. After going through morning shootaround, Jackson is feeling good enough to take the floor.

      Hutchison had been dealing with an illness, but he'll return Saturday and could be thrust into an increased role in the absence of Zach LaVine (ankle), who will miss at least the next two games -- and likely longer. Hutchison is averaging 2.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in 14.8 minutes over his last eight contests.

      Anderson tweaked the ankle in Friday's game against Miami, limiting him to a season-low 16 minutes of action. The Grizzlies will likely wait until closer to tip-off to make a decision on his status.

      Suns' Kelly Oubre: Headed to Phoenix
      4h ago

      Oubre was traded to the Suns on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

      After the initial deal fell through Friday night, the Wizards and Suns remained in talks and reached a trade to send Oubre and Austin Rivers to Phoenix, while the Wizards bring back Trevor Ariza. While the 33-year-old Ariza has the best track record of the three, he's struggled this season in Phoenix. Oubre is shooting just 31.1 percent from three, but he's 23 years old and will be a restricted free agent this offseason. Rivers, meanwhile, is on the final year of a three-year, $35.5 million contract he signed with the Clippers back in 2016. Both players figure to be immediate contributors for the lowly Suns, and it wouldn't be a surprise if Oubre, especially, works his way into the starting lineup at one of the forward spots.

      Durant posted 33 points (9-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 11-12 FT), eight rebounds and eight assists across 37 minutes in Friday's 130-125 win over the Kings.

      Durant was one of the only players to make a dent in the Raptors defense on Wednesday, and he continued his solid play in a game that ended up much closer than expected thanks to a sluggish first half for the Warriors. Two less-than-stellar games this week caused his numbers to dip a bit, as he's put up an average of 24 points and seven rebounds over the past four games.

      Coach Igor Kokoskov indicated that Booker (hamstring) will likely be available Saturday against Minnesota, Duane Rankin of AZCentral.com reports. "He looks good," Kokoskov said. "To play it safe, I would say questionable, but there is a very good chance he's going to play and if he plays, he's going to start."

      This is obviously an encouraging development for Booker, who is on course to miss just six games with a hamstring injury that initially looked like it may cost him more time. If Booker is ultimately cleared, expect him to move back into the starting lineup, likely replacing De'Anthony Melton at point guard.

    • Trevor Ariza PHO SG
      Wizards' Trevor Ariza: Officially dealt to Washington
      4h ago

      Ariza has officially been traded to the Wizards in exchange for Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

      The two teams -- plus the Grizzlies -- had reportedly reached a deal centered around Ariza late Friday night, but it ultimately fell through due to some confusion as to which player(s) Memphis would be including. Washington and Phoenix decided to move on without the Grizzlies and execute a two-team deal that will still send Ariza to the Wizards, while the Suns bring back a pair of younger players. Ariza has struggled through the first two months of the season in Phoenix, averaging 9.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game while sooting just 37.9 percent from three. The Wizards, for whom Ariza played from 2012-14, hope a change of scenery will be all the 33-year-old needs, but it's somewhat of a risky deal for Washington, which relinquished one of its better young assets in Oubre, who is set to hit restricted free agency this summer.

      Barea sat out Thursday's 99-89 loss to the Suns with a left ankle sprain, allowing rookie Jalen Brunson to serve as the backup to starting point guard Dennis Smith (wrist). Heading into that contest, Smith had missed the previous four games and is listed as questionable heading into Sunday's tilt, so the Mavericks could be shorthanded in the backcourt if neither Smith nor Barea is able to suit up. The team should provide an update on both players following Sunday's morning shootaround.
