We have a light NBA slate Friday with six games on tap, anchored by a doubleheader on NBATV. Here’s a look at the day’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: March 10

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Philadelphia 76ers

Anfernee Simons (ankle) - available

Update - Simons is available to play and will start for the Trail Blazers.

Simons could be back after aggravating his ankle injury, but the Blazers will be cautious given how his last return went. If everything checks out, Simons will take some shots away from Damian Lillard and Jerami Grant.

James Harden (foot) - available

After sitting on the second night of a back-to-back earlier in the week, Harden is back in for the 76ers.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Washington Wizards

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at this time.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Miami Heat

Darius Garland (quad) - OUT

Update - Garland is ruled out, and he was trending that way for a while. LeVert is going to get the start for the Cavaliers with Garland out.

The rising point guard has been added to the injury report with a quad issue. If he sits out, Donovan Mitchell and Caris LeVert are in line for more usage tonight.

Kevin Love (ribs) - available

Update - As expected, Love is in for Miami.

Love should be in for Miami and will have a role off the bench.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Nic Claxton (Achilles, thumb) - available
Spencer Dinwiddie (rest) - available
Cam Johnson (knee) - available

Update - Everyone is in for the Nets, and it turns out the absences Thursday were for precautionary reasons on a back-to-back set rather than an actual injury.

The Nets have rested Dinwiddie and Johnson on one part of back-to-backs since acquiring them, and they both sat Thursday. The expectation is both will play.

Denver Nuggets vs. San Antonio Spurs

Jeremy Sochan (knee) - available

Update - As expected, Sochan is in for San Antonio.

The rookie should be in for the Spurs, who are tanking as the regular season winds down.

Toronto Raptors vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Update - As expected, both guys are in for LA.

Both guys should be in for LA. Russell is expected to get the start in his return from an ankle injury.
