There are six games on Sunday’s NBA slate, with one primetime encounter on ESPN. Here’s a look at at the day’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: March 12

Brooklyn Nets vs. Denver Nuggets

No notable day-to-day injuries at this time.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Charlotte Hornets

Jarrett Allen (eye) - OUT
Darius Garland (quad) - available

Update - Allen is officially out and Lamar Stevens will get the starting nod. Garland is available to play and will siphon off some usage from Donovan Mitchell.

Allen is likely out, so Evan Mobley will see more playing time in the frontcourt. If Garland gets ruled out, Caris LeVert should get the start for Cleveland.

Mark Williams (thumb) - OUT
Kelly Oubre (back) - OUT

Update - Williams and Oubre are both out.

Update - Oubre is likely to sit after being listed as doubtful, which will mean more playing time for Bryce McGowens.

With Williams set to sit out, the Hornets should roll with Nick Richards and Kai Jones in the interior as they continue to evaluate their bench guys.

Washington Wizards vs. Philadelphia 76ers

No notable day-to-day injuries at this time.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Damian Lillard (calf) - OUT

Update - In a surprising twist, Lillard has been ruled out for the Trail Blazers. Anfernee Simons should take over as the lead guard and Shaedon Sharpe will get more minutes in the backcourt.

Lillard should be in for Portland.

Brandon Ingram (ankle) - OUT

Update - Ingram has been ruled out for New Orleans.

Ingram will likely be questionable when the Pelicans officially release their first injury report. He didn’t play Saturday, so we’ll see if he’s able to suit up tonight.

Oklahoma City Thunder vs. San Antonio Spurs

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (injury management) - OUT

Update - As expected, Gilgeous-Alexander is out Sunday.

SGA played Friday, so he’s set to sit the second night of a back-to-back set. Josh Giddey and Tre Mann are the DFS filler plays with SGA out.

Keldon Johnson (foot) - OUT
Jeremy Sochan (back) - OUT

Update - Both Johnson and Sochan are out, so Keita Bates-Diop and Doug McDermott could get more playing time. Devin Vassell is likely to get most of the usage in this contest.

Sochan should be relevant in fantasy/DFS formats regardless of Johnson’s status.

New York Knicks vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Jalen Brunson (foot) - OUT

Update - Brunson has been ruled out, which means Immanuel Quickley is once again set to start at the point guard spot for New York.

We’ll have an idea of how serious this injury is based on the team prognosis later today.

Anthony Davis (foot) - available
D’Angelo Russell (ankle) - available

Update - Davis is in for LA.

Update - Russell is not on the injury report so he’s in for LA.

Davis should be in for LA. We’ll see how the team deals with Russell soon enough.
