Matt Murray Headshot

Murray is confirmed to start Sunday's game against the Flyers.

As expected, Murray will be the starter in the Pittsburgh net on Sunday. He'll field pucks from a Flyers team that is averaging just 2.42 goals per game in March.
6:41 pm (EST)
Zach Randolph Headshot

Randolph will draw the start at center for Sunday's matchup against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southeast reports.

With Marc Gasol (foot) out Sunday, Randolph will draw the start against the Warriors. In three starts this season, he's averaged 14.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 33.6 minutes per game.
6:37 pm (EST)
Joe Musgrove Headshot

Musgrove allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out four over five innings Sunday against the Nationals.

Musgrove was informed earlier in the day that he won a spot in the rotation and will pitch the fourth game of the regular seasonb. He turned that good news into a strong performance Sunday, facing one batter over the minimum after the first inning in a 79-pitch (53 strikes) outing. He'll take the ball April 6 against Seattle, and by dint of his order in the rotation figures to be safe when Collin McHugh -- expected to open the season on the 10-day disabled list -- becomes available.
6:33 pm (EST)
James Harden Headshot

Harden has been dealing with a sore wrist since Monday's tilt against the Nuggets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Harden took a fall during Monday's game against the Nuggets and has been nursing a sore wrist ever since. He almost didn't play Friday against the Pelicans, but felt good enough to give it a shot. That being said, he hasn't seemed too affected by the ailment over the past few games. During Sunday's affair, he dropped 22 points (8-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 12 assists and five rebounds across 36 minutes during the 137-125 victory over the Thunder. He should be expected to play in any contests moving forward unless the pain happens to flare up once more, in which case the team would likely provide an update.
6:31 pm (EST)
Trevor Daley Headshot

Daley (knee) participated in a portion of Sunday's game-day skate, though he won't play against the Flyers.

Coach Mike Sullivan singled out Daley's progress, saying the defender didn't skate "for the whole time but for an allotted period of time by design." He was expected to miss six weeks after undergoing knee surgery Feb. 23 and appears to be on target within that timeframe. Daley has scored 19 points in 54 games after posting 22 points in 56 last year with Pittsburgh.
6:24 pm (EST)
Niklas Kronwall Headshot

Kronwall will likely not play one of the Red Wings' next two contests, as he cannot play three games in a row due to his previously-injured knee, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

With the Red Wings in the peculiar position of having to play three games in as many days, Kronwall is slated take a rest for either Monday or Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes so as not to push his knee too hard. The veteran blueliner will take one of the days off and will likely be all systems go either way for Thursday's game in Tampa Bay.
5:57 pm (EST)
Sam Dyson Headshot

Dyson threw six perfect innings over five World Baseball Classic appearances, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Dyson was flawless throughout the WBC, suggesting any wrist ailment that had been bothering him in early-March is now a thing of the past. It also helps solidify his status as the frontrunner for the Rangers closer position, despite Jeremy Jeffress and Matt Bush waiting in the wings. Dyson may not yet have as long of a leash as other veteran closers, but if he continues to use an upper-90s sinker to induce frequent ground balls, removing him from that role would become increasingly difficult. The 28-year-old was tremendously successful in his first chance as a full-time closer last season, posting a 2.43 ERA while converting 38 of 43 save opportunities.
5:43 pm (EST)
Lucas Wallmark Headshot

Wallmark was recalled from the club's AHL Charlotte affiliate Sunday.

Wallmark trailed only Andrew Poturalski in scoring for the Checkers this season, notching 42 points over 64 games in the AHL. He's unlikely to fill a similar role for the Hurricanes, but could get some run down the stretch as the team attempts to get some of its younger guys some playing time.
5:42 pm (EST)
Dan Renouf Headshot

Renouf was recalled from the team's AHL Grand Rapids affiliate Sunday on emergency conditions.

Renouf joined the organization as a free agent last March, posting 15 points (3 goals, 12 assists) and 59 penalty minutes over 58 contests with the club. His addition to the defensive grouping could suggest that another blueliner is suffering from an injury as the team heads out on a three-game road trip. However, it's unlikely he will be with the squad long enough for fantasy consideration.
5:19 pm (EST)
Taurean Prince Headshot

Prince provided 17 points (5-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three steals, one assist, and one block in 38 minutes during Sunday's 107-92 loss to the Nets.

Making his first career start, Prince saw a career-high minute total and matched career highs in scoring and steals. Thabo Sefolosha's strained groin doesn't seem too serious, so Prince's boost could be short-lived. Nevertheless, the rookie played well, and he is averaging more minutes per game (20.1) in March than he did in any prior month.
