      24m ago

      Muscala (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Kings, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

      This will be Muscala's second straight absence while he nurses a sore right ankle. JaVale McGee will start at center while Tyson Chandler likely plays as his backup off the bench.

      Warriors' Andrew Bogut: In starting five Sunday
      1h ago

      Bogut will start at center in Sunday's game against the Pistons, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

      Warriors' Stephen Curry: Back in action Sunday
      1h ago

      Curry (rest) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pistons, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

      As expected, after getting the night off in Saturday's blowout loss to Dallas, Curry will be back on the court in a full capacity. Expect him to return to playing a full workload Sunday night.

      Lakers' Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: In starting lineup Sunday
      1h ago

      Caldwell-Pope will start at shooting guard in Sunday's game against the Kings, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.

      With Reggie Bullock (foot) being a late scratch Sunday night, Caldwell-Pope will be thrust into the starting five. Expect the shooting guard to surpass 30 minutes for the third straight game Sunday with the Lakers being undermanned in the backcourt.

    • Reggie Bullock LAL SG
      Lakers' Reggie Bullock: Ruled out Sunday
      1h ago

      Bullock is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Kings due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

      Bullock was nursing foot issues just over a week ago and they appear to have resurfaced. With Bullock being a late scratch Sunday, Lance Stephenson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should both be in line for extended minutes on the wing and in the backcourt.

      James (knee) will play in Sunday's game against the Kings, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

      James appeared on the injury report for Sunday's game with a bruised left knee, but it appears to have just been precautionary. Expect James to take on his regular workload Sunday night against Sacramento.

    • Aron Baynes BOS C
      Celtics' Aron Baynes: Will play vs. Spurs
      3h ago

      Baynes (ankle) is available to play in Sunday's game against San Antonio, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

      Baynes' ankle injury ended up not being too serious, as it only caused him to miss one game. With Al Horford (knee) and Robert Williams (back) out, and assuming Baynes is 100 percent, the big man should see plenty of minutes at center Sunday.

    • Joakim Noah MEM C
      Grizzlies' Joakim Noah: Doubtful Monday
      4h ago

      Noah (knee) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Thunder.

      Noah left Saturday's game with soreness in his right knee, and the Grizzlies will likely hold him out Monday on somewhat of a precautionary basis. A more definitive update should be available after shootaround Monday morning.

    • DeAndre Jordan NY C
      Knicks' DeAndre Jordan: Big double-double in loss
      4h ago

      Jordan totaled 20 points (7-10 FG, 6-7 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two steals over 34 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

      After failing to produce a double-double in three straight games, Jordan went off for a stat line more typical for him in the form of 20 points and 13 boards. He hasn't played much in his last three games, though those have all been blowouts. With the Knicks keeping it close with the Clippers, Jordan got ample playing time and turned it into a big night.

    • Ivica Zubac LAC C
      Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Rare double-double in win
      5h ago

      Zubac totaled 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Knicks on Sunday.

      Zubac has only managed three double-doubles in 23 games as the Clippers' starting center, so Sunday's production was a bit unusual. Zubac has been efficient given his limited minutes, but his low usage rate and sporadic totals make him a dart-throw with limited upside most nights.

    • DeMarcus Cousins GS C
      Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Resting Sunday
      6h ago

      Cousins will be rested for Sunday's game against the Pistons, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

      With the Warriors on the second night of a back-to-back, this isn't a surprising development, and the Warriors will likely pivot to Andrew Bogut at center. Cousins played 23 minutes in Saturday's blowout loss to the Mavericks, finishing with 19 points, six rebounds and three assists.

      Mavericks' Kristaps Porzingis: Will not play this season
      3h ago

      Porzingis (knee) has officially been ruled out for the rest of the season, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

      While Porzingis was never expected to play this season while he recovers from a torn ACL, speculation opened up when he returned to participating in five-on-five drills without any restrictions just over a week ago. However, the Mavericks have no reason to rush the big man back into game action, and Porzingis should be a full go for the start of the 2019-20 season.

    • Christian Wood NO PF
      Pelicans' Christian Wood: Will play Sunday
      4h ago

      Wood will be available to make his Pelicans debut in Sunday's game against the Rockets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

      Wood was recently claimed off waivers by the Pelicans after the young big man was let go by the Bucks. Given that Wood has shown plenty of promise with his G League dominance, averaging 29.3 points and 14.0 rebounds per game, New Orleans will likely want to use him as much as possible to see what it has in Wood before season's end.

    • Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL PF
      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Cleared to play
      5h ago

      Antetokounmpo (ankle) will start Sunday's game against Cleveland.

      The Bucks took the decision down to the last minute, but the MVP candidate will take the floor Sunday after being held out of two contests earlier in the week. Antetokounmpo rolled his ankle against the Sixers a week ago, but it doesn't look to be anything that'll hamper him long-term.

    • Montrezl Harrell LAC PF
      Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Drops 24 in win
      5h ago

      Harrell totaled 24 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-9 FT), four rebounds, one assist and a block across 28 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Knicks on Sunday.

      Harrell produced another strong offensive output in Saturday's win, totaling 24 points on an efficient 66.7 percent shooting from the floor. Harrell has been a monster off the Ben h for an up-and-coming Clippers team, averaging 17.7 points, 7.9 boards and 1.4 blocks over his last 10 games.

    • Harry Giles SAC PF
      Kings' Harry Giles: Ruled out Sunday
      5h ago

      Giles (thigh) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lakers.

      Giles also missed Saturday's game with a bruised left thigh, so it's not overly shocking that he'll be held out on the back-to-back. Consider the rookie day-to-day heading into Tuesday's game in Dallas.

    • Gordon Hayward BOS SF
      Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Cleared to play Sunday
      3h ago

      Hayward (concussion) will be available to play in Sunday's game against the Spurs, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

      Hayward was sidelined for over a week due to a concussion, but it appears he has cleared protocol and will be a full go in Sunday's contest. Without Jayson Tatum (back) against the Spurs, Hayward should see an increase in usage off the bench.

    • Jayson Tatum BOS SF
      Celtics' Jayson Tatum: Ruled out Sunday
      3h ago

      Tatum (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Celtics play-by-play announcer Sean Grande reports.

      As expected, Tatum will not be available for Sunday's outing after suffering a bruised lower back in Saturday's loss to Charlotte. Look for Jaylen Brown and Gordon Hayward to both see extended action in Tatum's absence.

    • Danilo Gallinari LAC SF
      Clippers' Danilo Gallinari: Ninth straight 20-point game
      5h ago

      Gallinari totaled 26 points (5-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 13-14 FT), eight rebounds and an assist across 33 minutes in the Clippers' win over the Knicks on Sunday.

      Gallinari poured in 26 points in Sunday's win, hitting at least 20 points for his ninth-straight game. In that span, he's shot better than 50 percent from the floor while draining 25 threes. Gallinari has also contributed 6.1 rebounds per game over his last nine contests. As long as he's healthy, he's a pretty good bet for some big scoring nights and solid rebounding totals.

      Suns' Josh Jackson: Questionable Monday
      6h ago

      Jackson (ankle) is considered questionable for Monday's game against Utah, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

      Jackson was held out of Saturday's game in Sacramento with a sprained right ankle, and the Suns will wait until shootaround Monday morning to update his status. Over his previous 10 healthy games, Jackson is averaging 11.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists, while shooting just 38.4 percent from the field.

      It's very much unclear if Warren is anywhere close to returning, though the Suns insist on evaluating his status on a game-to-game basis. His next chance to play will come Wednesday versus Washington.

      Allen totaled 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block over 20 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Sunday.

      After totaling just 10 points over his last three games, Allen poured in 16 in a losing effort. Despite playing over 20 minutes per game now, Allen's production is far too inconsistent to make him useable outside of deep leagues.

      Dotson had a solid game in Sunday's loss, continuing to stay involved in the offense. He's playing heavy minutes for the Knicks down the stretch and should be a good bet for healthy scoring totals as the season comes to a close.

      Williams burned the Knicks for 29 points, including five-of-seven shooting from beyond the arc. Williams continues to get buckets off the bench for a Clippers team that's surprisingly headed to the playoffs. He's averaging 22.6 points in the month of March.

      Mudiay had another big game, starting in place of Dennis Smith (back). Mudiay has gone for 20 points in consecutive games, and he's been solid in facilitating and rebounding, too. With Smith likely out a couple more games, Mudiay is a good bet to replicate Sunday's production.

      Shamet left Sunday's game in the third quarter after appearing to slip on the floor, and he's now been diagnosed with a relatively minor injury, though it's one that coach Doc Rivers indicated could cause the rookie to miss "a few games". Heading into Sunday, Shamet averaged 12.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 3.4 made threes over his previous 10 contests.
