We take a look at the NBA injury report for Sunday, March 19 and break down all the latest news for fantasy basketball.
We have eight games on Sunday’s NBA slate, with action getting started in the afternoon. Here’s a look at the day’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.
Jamal Murray (injury management) – available
Nikola Jokic (injury management) – available
Michael Porter Jr. (injury management) – available
Update – Everyone should be in for Denver.
We’ll see how Denver handles their stars on the second game of a back-to-back set.
Landry Shamet (foot) – available
Update – Shamet is in officially for Phoenix.
Shamet is set to return and should see solid minutes. Jock Landale is a great DFS play with Ayton sidelined.
Trae Young (knee) – questionable
If Young doesn’t play, Dejounte Murray is a strong fantasy option going up against his former team.
Jeremy Sochan (knee) – OUT
Keldon Johnson is still getting heavy minutes for San Antonio and should see more shots with Sochan out.
Jimmy Butler (injury management) – available
Kyle Lowry (knee) – questionable
Bam Adebayo (injury management) – available
Tyler Herro (injury management) – available
Update – Butler, Adebayo and Herro are in. Lowry is listed as questionable but is expected to play.
Butler and Lowry are the most likely candidates to sit this game.
No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at this time.
Brook Lopez (ankle) – probable
Grayson Allen (foot) – probable
Jae Crowder (calf) – OUT
Lopez and Allen are likely in. With Crowder out, Joe Ingles should see more playing time on the wing.
Kawhi Leonard (injury management) – expected to play
Paul George (injury management) – TBD
After sitting Saturday, Leonard should be in for this game. We’ll see if the Clippers rest George here.
Nassir Little (illness) – questionable
Little would be a strong DFS filler play if he suits up. Kevin Knox and Cam Reddish could get more playing time if Little is also ruled out.
Anthony Davis (foot) – probable
Davis should be in for the Lakers.
