  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Top rebounder in double-double

    Davis supplied 22 points (11-17 FG), 14 rebounds, two blocks and three steals over 42 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Despite entering the game as a game-time decision with Achilles and hip issues, Davis led the Lakers in rebounds and steals while ending as one of three players with 20 or more points in a double-double outing. Davis has recorded a double-double in eight of his last 10 games, posting at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in seven of those outings.

  • Heat's Orlando Robinson: Questionable for Monday

    Robinson (back) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Kings.

    Robinson missed Friday's game against the Pelicans due to back spasms that now have his status in question for Monday's contest. Robinson could see an increased role if he is able to suit up due to Jimmy Butler, Thomas Bryant and Nikola Jovic facing a suspension.

  • Jay Huff C | DEN

    Nuggets' Jay Huff: Off injury report

    Huff (knee) is available for Sunday's game against the Warriors.

    Huff found himself on the injury report with a right knee issue, but he has been cleared to play ahead of gametime. Huff's availablity likely won't impact the rotation.

  • Goga Bitadze C | ORL

    Magic's Goga Bitadze: Starting against Atlanta

    Bitadze is starting Sunday's game against Atlanta, Wendell Epps of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Bitadze has been an inconsistent part of Orlando's rotation recently, but he'll join the starting lineup Sunday since Paolo Banchero (illness) has been ruled out. Over 31 starts this year, Bitadze has averaged 7.8 points and 7.4 rebounds in 24.0 minutes per game.

  • Maxi Kleber C | DAL

    Mavericks' Maxi Kleber: Good to go

    Kleber (nose) is available for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    As expected, Kleber, Luka Doncic (nose) and Dereck Lively (nose) have all been upgraded from probable to available. With Dallas' frontcourt at full strength, Kleber is expected to come off the bench, but he should still play a sizable role. On Friday, he posted seven points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during a win over Phoenix.

  • Mavericks' Dereck Lively: Officially active

    Lively (nose) will play Sunday versus Indiana, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Lively, Luka Doncic (nose) and Maxi Kleber (nose) have all gained clearance to play in advance of Sunday's game against Indiana. Sunday will mark the second occasion that Dallas' frontcourt has been at full strength with the new additions of Daniel Gafford and P.J. Washington.

  • Lakers' Colin Castleton: Out indefinitely with broken wrist

    Castleton is expected to miss multiple weeks after he recently suffered a fractured right wrist, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Castleton, one of the Lakers' two-way players, hasn't seen any game action at the G League or NBA level since Feb. 14, but it's unclear when exactly he suffered the injury. The fractured wrist comes at an inconvenient time for Castleton, who may have had an outside chance to push Jaxson Hayes for the top backup role at center with his other competitor for the job, Christian Wood (knee) already facing a multi-week absence of his own. The undrafted rookie out of Florida had made just seven appearances for Los Angeles this season but has been a standout performer for the G League's South Bay Lakers when available, averaging 16.4 points, 10.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals in 28.8 minutes per game over 24 appearances.

  • Alex Len C | SAC

    Kings' Alex Len: Out sick Sunday

    Len (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Clippers

    Len's absence will leave Trey Lyles and JaVale McGee as candidates to absorb the backup center minutes behind starter Domantas Sabonis. The 30-year-old's next opportunity to take the court will come Monday against the Heat.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Cleared to play Sunday

    Davis (Achilles/hip) is available for Sunday's game against the Suns, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis and LeBron James (ankle) have both been upgraded to available, while Cam Reddish (ankle) has been ruled out. Davis has scored at least 20 points in seven straight games, averaging 27.1 points, 12.4 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.7 blocks in 33.1 minutes during that stretch.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Deemed game-time call

    Head coach Darvin Ham said Davis (Achilles/hip) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game against Phoenix, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

    Davis continues to deal with bilateral Achilles soreness as well as left hip spasms. Along with Davis, Ham labeled LeBron James (ankle) and Cam Reddish (ankle) as game-time calls for Sunday's contest, and clarity on the statuses of all three players is unlikely to arrive until shortly before the 3:30 p.m. ET tipoff.
