Sun Mar 315:43Jusuf Nurkic Probable On Sunday NightJusuf NurkicCNuggetsFree Agent
Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic (neck) is listed as probable ahead of Sunday night's showdown with OKC. The Suns recently listed their official injury designations, and Nurkic is on the report because of neck spasms. Fortunately, it doesn't appear it will be enough to keep the 29-year-old off the court. However, things happen, so Bol Bol and Drew Eubanks could get more minutes if Nurkic suffers a setback before opening tip.

Sun Mar 315:38Khris Middleton Not Expected Back On MondayKhris MiddletonSFBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton (ankle) is unlikely to return for Monday's matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers. He has practiced lately, albeit in a limited capacity. However, the veteran isn't ready, although there have been reports indicating things are moving in a positive direction. Middleton hasn't played in nearly a month, and it's unknown when he'll be back in the lineup. But until the 32-year-old returns, Jae Crowder, averaging 5.4 points and 4.1 rebounds in 14 starts this season, should continue to fill the void. With that in mind, Crowder isn't an appealing option in any format.

Sun Mar 314:10Stephen Curry Expected To Suit Up Versus BostonStephen CurryPGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (knee) is expected to face the Celtics on Sunday. The 35-year-old logged at least 30 minutes in each game of the Warriors' current road trip, so many had assumed he'd sit this one out. However, barring a setback during warmups, he'll be out there. While Curry's presumed availability should mean less work for Chris Paul, the former Sun could remain involved, considering Brandin Podziemski (knee) is out

Sun Mar 300:06LeBron James Makes History On Saturday NightLeBron JamesSFCavaliersFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) scored a team-high 26 points in Saturday's loss to the Denver Nuggets. He added nine assists and three steals. The 2003 No. 1 overall pick was once again on the injury report heading into this one because of his nagging ankle issue. However, it didn't matter, as James was active to become the first player in NBA history to score 40,000 career points. The 39-year-old is nearing the end of his historic career. But he could have at least a few more years left in the tank. While James isn't as durable and productive as he used to be, he's expected to remain a top fantasy contributor until he retires.
Sat Mar 223:55Jerami Grant Injured Saturday, Doesn't ReturnJerami GrantSF76ersFree Agent
Portland Trail Blazers forward Jerami Grant (quadriceps) exited Saturday's game against Memphis. He did not return. The 29-year-old logged 15 minutes, finishing with five points. Grant will presumably undergo further testing to determine the severity of the injury. The Blazers play again on Monday in Minnesota, and it's possible Grant won't be available. If that's the case, and with Portland also recently down Deandre Ayton (hand), Malcolm Brogdon (elbow), and Scoot Henderson (adductor), Anfernee Simons could see a significant bump in scoring opportunities. Additionally, players like Jabari Walker and Toumani Camara also might get more involved on the offensive end.

Sat Mar 221:39Seth Curry Won't Play Versus TorontoSeth CurryPGSunsFree Agent
Charlotte Hornets guard Seth Curry (ankle) won't play on Sunday against the Toronto Raptors. Brandon Miller (back) wasn't available for Friday's meeting with the 76ers, so Curry got the start. However, he suffered a sprained right ankle, ending his night prematurely. Nonetheless, the 33-year-old could miss more games moving ahead. But with Miller listed as probable for Sunday, Curry's fantasy potential would have been significantly less than it was heading into Friday's contest.

Sat Mar 220:25Anthony Davis Available Versus The ChampsAnthony DavisPFPelicansFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis (Achilles) will play on Saturday against the Nuggets. The bilateral Achilles Tendinopathy isn't anything new, and he was listed as probable, so there wasn't any genuine concern regarding his availability for the clash with the Champs. Despite being in the league for over a decade, Davis remains one of the best players in the National Basketball Association. That said, the 30-year-old should be featured in all fantasy lineups, regardless of format. But Davis has averaged just 8.5 points versus Denver this season, meaning he could have a tough time hitting value for DFS participants.

Sat Mar 220:16LeBron James Will Play On SaturdayLeBron JamesSFCavaliersFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (ankle) is available ahead of Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. James has been a regular on the injury report due to his left ankle issues. He has been cleared to play on Saturday despite being tagged as questionable earlier in the day. The 39-year-old should have his normal role in the rotation which means Taurean Prince and Rui Hachimura won't be great streaming choices.

Sat Mar 219:32Eric Gordon To Sit Out SaturdayEric GordonSGPelicansFree Agent
Phoenix Suns guard Eric Gordon (groin) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets. Gordon continues to be sidelined due to a lingering groin issue. He will be joined by Nassir Little (knee) during Saturday's game. The absence of Gordon should mean more playing time for Royce O'Neale. He'll be bounced to the second unit with Bradley Beal back in the picture. O'Neale won't be as appealing off the bench, but should still have some streaming value in deep leagues.

Sat Mar 219:27Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Downgraded To OutKentavious Caldwell-PopeSGPistonsFree Agent
Denver Nuggets guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) has been downgraded to out ahead of Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. The Nuggets could be shorthanded here with Jamal Murray (ankle) listed as questionable for this game. Justin Holiday figures to fill the spot in the starting five left by Caldwell-Pope. Despite the extra minutes, Holiday doesn't offer great streaming value. He has a limited ceiling and isn't even an above-average option on a small-slate night like Saturday.

Sat Mar 219:20Bradley Beal Will Play On SaturdayBradley BealSGWizardsFree Agent
Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal (hamstring) is available ahead of Saturday's game against the Houston Rockets. As expected, Beal will make his return to the court after missing each of the last five games due to a left hamstring injury. His return will shift Royce O'Neale back to the bench. O'Neale won't have as much streaming appeal anymore and will only be worth a look in deep leagues. It's unclear if Beal is going to be under a minutes limit during this game. Regardless, fantasy managers in season-long formats can get Beal back in their lineups.

Sat Mar 218:51Kyle Anderson Uncertain For SundayKyle AndersonSFSpursFree Agent
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kyle Anderson (knee) is currently listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Anderson is hopeful to make a return here after missing each of the last two games due to a knee injury. Naz Reid has been taking on a bigger role with Anderson sidelined. Reid has posted three strong outings in a row. He should be a viable streaming option if Anderson is forced to miss Sunday's game.

Sat Mar 216:48Stephen Curry On The Injury Report For SundayStephen CurryPGWarriorsFree Agent
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (knee) is considered questionable for Sunday's game in Boston. The veteran is apparently battling a knee issue. However, he logged at least 30 minutes in back-to-back contests on Thursday and Friday, so the team will understandably be cautious with him for the last game of their road trip. Nonetheless, if Curry ends up sitting out, Chris Paul, who had 13 points, five assists, and two steals on Friday night in the win over the Toronto Raptors, should be included in all fantasy lineups.

Sat Mar 216:40Kevin Love Out On SaturdayKevin LovePFCavaliersFree Agent
Miami Heat forward Kevin Love (heel) remains out for Saturday's game against Utah. The 35-year-old will miss a second straight contest because of a heel contusion. However, Love has averaged only 9.0 points and 5.1 rebounds this season, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the fantasy end.

Sat Mar 215:24Jordan Clarkson Downgraded To OutJordan ClarksonSGLakersFree Agent
Utah Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson (illness) has been downgraded from questionable to out for Saturday's meeting with the Miami Heat. A late addition to the injury report, Clarkson won't be able to overcome an illness in time to suit up. Over Clarkson's last seven showings, the veteran combo guard is gathering 14.3 points, 6.3 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.9 treys in 32.6 minutes per game, and his next chance to return arrives in Monday's tilt versus the Washington Wizards. With Walker Kessler (foot) also out, Kris Dunn has a chance at extended run as Utah's clear sixth man off the bench. Dunn is facing a tough assignment and is only averaging 6.7 points, 2.3 dimes, 2.3 boards, and 1.6 steals in 20.1 minutes across his latest seven games, though. Miami runs the third-slowest offense in terms of pace (99.1) and ranks seventh in defensive efficiency (110.3), so this isn't the most appealing setup from a fantasy perspective.

Sat Mar 208:44Seth Curry Tweaks Ankle In Rare StartSeth CurryPGSunsFree Agent
Charlotte Hornets guard Seth Curry was forced to an early exit on Friday versus Philadelphia due to a right ankle sprain. Making only his fourth start of the season, the veteran sniper logged 23 minutes before leaving. He had five points with two rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Curry was filling in for Brandon Miller (back) in the starting unit. It could now be Bryce McGowens's turn to enter the starting five if Charlotte can't shake off any of its injuries ahead of Sunday's matchup against Toronto. Vasilije Micic is also in a position to benefit. He logged 28 minutes off the bench on Friday and enjoyed a good outing with 13 points, seven assists, and a pair of steals.

Sat Mar 208:37Russell Westbrook Out Indefinitely With Fractured HandRussell WestbrookPGThunderFree Agent
Los Angeles Clippers point guard Russell Westbrook will be out indefinitely after fracturing his left hand in Friday's 140-115 win over Washington. The former MVP managed to log 10 minutes in the contest, registering six points and an assist with 2-for-3 shooting. Westbrook has been one of the most productive bench players in the league this season, averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 4.4 assists with 1.1 steals. With Westbrook on the shelf, Bones Hyland looks set to re-enter the rotation. He made his first appearance since Jan. 31 on Friday, finishing with two points and seven assists in 16 minutes.

Fri Mar 123:01Kentavious Caldwell-Pope Listed As Questionable Against LakersKentavious Caldwell-PopeSGPistonsFree Agent
Denver Nuggets guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (personal) is listed as questionable before Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Nuggets Jamal Murray (ankle) is also doubtful. Christian Braun and Peyton Watson could log more minutes at guard should both players be unavailable. Caldwell-Pope will be missed if unavailable, as he registered 20 points in one matchup against Los Angeles on October 21st. He's averaging 10.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 55 regular season contests.

Fri Mar 121:56Anthony Davis Probable Versus Nuggets SaturdayAnthony DavisPFPelicansFree Agent
Los Angeles Lakers power forward Anthony Davis (Achilles) is likely available Saturday against the Denver Nuggets. Davis has been dealing with soreness in his Achilles for most of the season. However, fantasy managers should expect the power forward to play, as he has been listed as probable several times throughout the year. In the last 10 games, the 30-year-old averaged 24.4 points, 13.1 rebounds and 2.4 blocks.

Fri Mar 121:15Giannis Antetokounmpo Will Play Against ChicagoGiannis AntetokounmpoSGBucksFree Agent
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) will play on Friday against the Bulls. The 29-year-old is seemingly always on the injury report. However, he's only missed two games this season. Antetokounmpo has averaged 31.0 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 1.3 steals in three meetings with Chicago this season, making him a more appealing option for all fantasy lineups, including those participating in DFS contests.
