We’ve got seven games on Wednesday’s NBA slate, with ESPN’s doubleheader anchoring the action. Here’s the injury report for the day, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: March 15

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

Jalen McDaniels (hip) - OUT

Update - McDaniels is out, so Georges Niang and De’Anthony Melton will be the key players off the bench for Philly.

McDaniels is officially questionable but the team believes he’s on track to play. He’ll maintain a nice role off the bench and should have some value as a filler play.

Donovan Mitchell (injury management) - available
Jarrett Allen (eye) - OUT

Update - Allen remains sidelined with an eye issue, but Mitchell is not on the injury report after sitting yesterday’s game. He’s in for tonight’s contest.

Mitchell was ruled out for Tuesday’s game, so he’s likely to play here. The star shooting guard is much more valuable in this matchup, which has seeding implications at the top of the conference.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Miami Heat

Kyle Lowry (knee) - available

Update - Lowry is in for Miami. Vincent is still set to get the start though, so he’s a nice value add in DFS lineups.

If Lowry can’t go, Gabe Vincent will start as the team’s point guard. Tyler Herro could see additional usage as a playmaker.

Sacramento Kings vs. Chicago Bulls

Alex Caruso (illness) - OUT

Caruso was added late as questionable and it usually ends like it did here for the player in question. With Caruso out, Coby White and Ayo Dosunmu will have bigger roles off the bench for Chicago.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets

Anthony Davis (foot) - OUT

The Lakers have already ruled Davis out for Wednesday’s game. They won Tuesday’s game, and they likely feel they can get this done against a bad Rockets team without Davis. The big man gets a rest, and Wenyen Gabriel should see more playing time as a result.

Alperen Sengun (groin) - available

Update - Sengun is in and will likely get the start for Houston.

If Sengun can’t go, Tari Eason will be Houston’s primary big man in this game.

Boston Celtics vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Rudy Gobert (ankle) - available
Naz Reid (calf) - available

Update- Gobert and Reid are both in for the Timberwolves.

If Gobert is ruled out and Reid is in, the latter will have strong value as a DFS option. If both are ruled out, Nathan Knight and Luka Garza will see action in the frontcourt.

Dallas Mavericks vs. San Antonio Spurs

Luka Doncic (thigh) - OUT
Kyrie Irving (foot) - OUT
Christian Wood (foot) - available
Tim Hardaway Jr. (calf) - OUT

Update - Irving and Hardaway Jr. have been ruled out, while Wood is in for the Mavericks. Green and Bullock will see more usage in this game as a result of these final designations.

Irving would be the focal point of this offense if he’s in. Wood’s status will ultimately impact Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell. Hardaway Jr. sitting would mean more touches for Josh Green and Reggie Bullock.

Keldon Johnson (ankle) - available
Jerem Sochan (knee) - OUT
Devin Vassell (injury management) - OUT

Update - Johnson is in after sitting yesterday, while Sochan and Vassell are both out. Tre Jones is back in for the Spurs and could offer some value if Malaki Branham is ruled out. The rookie is dealing with a shoulder injury.

We’ll see how the tanking Spurs play this on the second night of a back-to-back set.

Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers

Jonathan Kuminga (ankle) - available

Update - As expected, Kuminga is in for the Warriors.

The young forward should be back in for Golden State.
