Latest from Ray Flowers' MLB Draft Guide

Tony Allen Headshot

Allen (knee) will play and start at shooting guard for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

As expected, Allen will take the floor for Thursday's game after missing Tuesday's matchup with a sore left knee. He'll rejoin the starting five and should see around 25 minutes of run. As a result, Wayne Selden will move back to the bench.
7:49 pm (EST)
Mike Fisher Headshot

Fisher will not suit up for Thursday night's game against the Flames due to a lower-body injury.

Fisher had been playing decently of late despite limited playing time, posting three goals and four assists while averaging just 16:05 of ice time over his last 12 contests. Colton Sissons is slated to take Fishers spot centering the second line for Thursday's matchup.
7:47 pm (EST)
Alan Williams Headshot

Williams (illness) isn't listed on the injury report for Thursday's matchup against the Nets.

As expected, Williams will suit up for Thursday's game with the intention to take the floor after missing Tuesday's matchup against the Heat with a stomach issue. He splits time at center with Alex Len, averaging 25.6 minutes per game in the month of March.
7:41 pm (EST)
Pekka Rinne Headshot

Rinne will be between the posts for Thursday night's contest against the Flames.

Rinne has been outstanding recently, winning three consecutive starts and allowing just one goal in each of his last two starts with a .959 save percentage over that span to top it off. He'll face pucks from a Flames team that has cooled off from its recent hot streak, losing two of its last four, but has still scored at least two goals in each of its last 14 games.
7:40 pm (EST)
James Paxton Headshot

Paxton (illness) will have his scheduled start Friday skipped due to a head cold, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Hisashi Iwakuma will take Paxton's spot on the mound for Friday's game against the Royals. Fortunately, Johns is reporting that Paxton is just dealing with a case of the cold, so there's little reason for concern regarding the hard-throwing lefty's status heading into the season. Although Paxton has given up four earned runs over 9.0 innings this spring, he's sporting a strong 11:1 K:BB over that stretch.
7:36 pm (EST)
Tony Allen Headshot

Allen (knee) is still a game-time decision, but is expected to suit up for Thursday's tilt against the Spurs, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southeast reports.

After being held out of Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans due to a sore left knee, Allen is expected to play during Thursday's game against the Spurs. Despite the official designation of a game-time decision, coach David Fizdale expects Allen to take the floor, so he should likely be considered probable.
7:26 pm (EST)
Eduardo Nunez Headshot

Nunez (shoulder) may serve as the Giants' designated hitter over the weekend and is unsure when he'll be ready to return to his post in the infield, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "I think we're good for Opening Day," Nunez added Thursday.

The versatile infielder received two different cortisone shots in his ailing shoulder Wednesday and is set to be rested over the next few days. He could be ready to log more at-bats over the weekend, however. Baggarly noted that Nunez feels he's had enough at-bats and innings in the field this spring to where he should be ready for Opening Day even if he's limited over the latter portion of spring training.
7:24 pm (EST)
Ronnie Price Headshot

Price (leg) will not play during Thursday's matchup against the Nets, Doug Haller of AZCentral Sports reports.

Price was listed as questionable earlier Thursday, but is apparently still in significant pain from a lower left leg contusion, and will miss his third straight game. As a result, Tyler Ulis will likely see heavy minutes as the Suns' starter, with Leandro Barbosa possibly picking up some minutes off the bench.
7:21 pm (EST)
Ondrej Kase Headshot

Kase was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Thursday.

Unlike several of his Ducks teammates, Kase managed to spend a large portion of the season with the big club until being sent back down to the minors. The 21-year-old had been at least somewhat productive in the middle of the season but had slowed down of late, posting just two point in his last 19 games played.
7:20 pm (EST)
Derrick Jones Headshot

Jones will draw the start at small forward for Thursday's game against the Nets, Doug Haller of AZCentral Sports reports.

With T.J. Warren (foot) out Thursday, coach Earl Watson has opted to insert Jones into the starting five. He's averaged 4.4 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks across 16.4 minutes per game since the All-Star break, but could see around 25 to 30 minutes of action Thursday.
