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.

NBA Injury Report: March 19

Denver Nuggets vs. Brooklyn Nets

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.

Phoenix Suns vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Deandre Ayton (hip) - OUT
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.

Atlanta Hawks vs. San Antonio Spurs

Trae Young (knee) - available

Update - Young is in for the Hawks.

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.

Miami Heat vs. Detroit Pistons

Jimmy Butler (injury management) - available
Kyle Lowry (knee) - available
Bam Adebayo (injury management) - available
Tyler Herro (injury management) - available

Update - Lowry is in for Miami.

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.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. Houston Rockets

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

Toronto Raptors vs. Milwaukee Bucks

Brook Lopez (ankle) - available
Grayson Allen (foot) - available
Jae Crowder (calf) - OUT

Update - Lopez and Allen are in.

Lopez and Allen are likely in. With Crowder out, Joe Ingles should see more playing time on the wing.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Kawhi Leonard (injury management) - available
Paul George (injury management) - available

Update - Both stars are in for LA.

After sitting Saturday, Leonard should be in for this game. We’ll see if the Clippers rest George here.

Jerami Grant (quad) - OUT
Nassir Little (illness) - available

Update - Little is in for Portland and will get big minutes since Grant is out.

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.

Orlando Magic vs. Los Angeles Lakers

Jalen Suggs (concussion) - OUT

Suggs is out, so that means more minutes for Cole Anthony and Markelle Fultz in this matchup.

Anthony Davis (foot) - available

Update - Davis is officially good to go.

Davis should be in for the Lakers.
