  • Simone Fontecchio DET SF
    Pistons' Simone Fontecchio: Out Sunday
    1m ago

    Fontecchio (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    A right great toe contusion caused Fontecchio to miss the final 14 games of the season. However, before that, he was making an impact for the Pistons, who acquired his services at the trade deadline. In 16 appearances (nine starts) with Detroit, Fontecchio averaged 15.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 0.9 steals in 30.2 minutes per game. The sharpshooter will be a restricted free agent this summer.

    Pistons' Jalen Duren: Season comes to an end
    5m ago

    Duren (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against San Antonio.

    Duren will be sidelined for a second consecutive contest due to back spasms, marking the end of his 2023-24 campaign. The second-year big flashed imposing talent when healthy, averaging 13.8 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 29.1 minutes per game, although his rhythm was disrupted by a series of ankle and back injuries, limiting him to 61 games on the year.

  • Cade Cunningham DET SG
    Pistons' Cade Cunningham: Downgraded to out
    7m ago

    Cunningham (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    As expected, Cunningham has been downgraded from doubtful to out and will miss the regular-season finale. The third-year guard rebounded from a lost 2022-23 campaign and averaged career highs in points (22.7) and assists (7.5). The Pistons' season was disappointing, but Cunningham was a bright spot and figures to be a key part of Detroit's future.

    Bulls' Javonte Green: Good to go Sunday
    8m ago

    Green (rest) will play Sunday versus New York.

    Green has been removed from the injury report and is a top candidate to slide into the starting lineup with Ayo Dosunmu (quad) unavailable Sunday. The 30-year-old is averaging 14.7 points and 9.0 rebounds on 62.1 percent shooting across his last three appearances.

    Bulls' Onuralp Bitim: Cleared for action
    10m ago

    Bitim (wrist) is active Sunday versus New York.

    Bitim will suit up for Chicago's regular-season finale despite dealing with left wrist soreness. Bitim scored six points (2-10 FG) in 25 minutes during Friday's win over Washington, and he could be in store for a similar workload with Ayo Dosunmu (quad) ruled out.

    Dosunmu (quad) will not play Sunday versus New York.

    Dosunmu will look to reach 100 percent in advance of Chicago's Play-In Tournament matchup versus Atlanta on Wednesday. Chicago's primary cast of backcourt contributors is otherwise healthy at this time.

    76ers' Joel Embiid: Expected to play Sunday
    15m ago

    Coach Nick Nurse said Embiid (knee) is expected to play Sunday against the Nets, barring a setback, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports.

    Embiid continues to ramp up following a lengthy surgery-related absence and will likely suit up for the sixth time over Philadelphia's last seven contests. Over his past two appearances, the reigning MVP has compiled 69 points, 24 rebounds, 15 assists, three steals and three blocks while playing 34.0 minutes per game. The 76ers have won all five games Embiid has appeared in since his return and could avoid the Play-In Tournament with another victory Sunday.

    Magic's Wendell Carter: Game-time decision Sunday
    23m ago

    Carter (back) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Milwaukee, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Carter's status is a swing factor for a contest with substantial meaning in the Eastern Conference standings, as Orlando is currently in a three-way tie for the fifth seed with a chance of slipping into the Play-In Tournament. Moritz Wagner is averaging 12.8 points and 5.0 rebounds in 21.1 minutes across 27 contests in which Carter has been unavailable this season.

    Jazz's John Collins: Sitting regular season finale
    15h ago

    Collins (back) is out for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

    Collins won't be available for the final game of the regular season, which makes sense since the Jazz don't have anything to play for Sunday. The veteran forward enjoyed a solid campaign in a starting role in 2023-24, averaging 15.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 28.0 minutes per game across 68 appearances (66 starts).

    Jazz's Walker Kessler: Ruled out for Sunday
    15h ago

    Kessler (nose) will not play Sunday against the Warriors.

    Kessler will end up missing the final six games of the campaign. After a breakout rookie season in 2022-23, Kessler couldn't really build on that momentum in 2023-24. He finished the season with averages of 8.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 23.3 minutes across 64 appearances.

    Ayton (back) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Kings.

    Ayton left Friday's game against the Rockets due to low back soreness, and it remains to be seen whether the big man will be available for the season finale. However, it wouldn't be surprising if the Blazers elect to hold him out, as Portland has nothing to play for Sunday. Ayton heads into the regular-season finale with averages of 16.7 points and 11.1 rebounds per game across 55 starts.

    Kings' Trey Lyles: Battling illness
    2h ago

    Lyles is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers with an illness.

    Lyles didn't appear on the Kings' initial injury report for the regular-season finale that was released Saturday, so the illness may have been something that cropped up overnight. The Kings will likely see how he recovers over the next few hours before making a decision on his status shortly before the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff. Since making his return to action March 31 following a nine-game absence due to a left knee sprain, Lyles has appeared in each of Sacramento's last eight contests while averaging 8.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.8 three-pointers, 0.6 blocks and 0.5 steals in 21.5 minutes.

    15h ago

    Green is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jazz due to a right knee contusion.

    Green has been bothered by a knee problem in the last few days, and it seems he'll be a true game-time call for the final game of the regular season. Green is averaging 6.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.0 blocks per game since the beginning of April.

    Kuminga (pelvis) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    Kuminga did not play Friday against the Pelicans with coach Steve Kerr saying that the forward was in a lot of pain. Kerr mentioned Friday that he was planning to rest several key rotation players, and Kuminga could be a candidate for a maintenance day due to his pelvis issue.

    15h ago

    Grant (hamstring) is out for Sunday's game against the Kings.

    There's no point in the Blazers risking Grant in a meaningless game, as the team has been out of playoff contention for quite some time. Grant was productive when available, but his final appearance came on March 11. In fact, Grant played just seven times since the All-Star break. He ends the campaign with averages of 21.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game across 54 appearances.

Koreen speculates that given Toronto's circumstance entering the regular-season finale, "questionable will surely mean out," although Barrett's official status is still to be determined.

  • Matt Ryan NO SF
    Pelicans' Matt Ryan: Upgraded to standard deal
    2h ago

    The Pelicans signed Ryan to a standard NBA contract Saturday.

    Since the Pelicans claimed him off waivers from the Timberwolves in October, Ryan has spent the entire 2023-24 campaign as one of New Orleans' three two-way players. Heading into Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Lakers, Ryan has appeared in 27 games (one start) while averaging 5.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 three-pointers in 14.4 minutes per contest. While Ryan isn't expected to be part of New Orleans' rotation during the team's upcoming playoff run, his conversion from a two-way deal to a standard NBA contract at least ensures that he'll be eligible to play during the postseason.

Brooks will end his first year with the Rockets organization with averages of 12.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.9 steals across 30.9 minutes per game in 72 starts.
