Latest from Ray Flowers' MLB Draft Guide

DeMarcus Cousins Headshot

Cousins (ankle) will be sidelined for Sunday's matchup against the Nuggets, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

Cousins failed to participate in Sunday's morning shootaround after tweaking his right ankle during Friday's loss to the Rockets and has been ruled out against the Nuggets. In his absence, Dante Cunningham will likely join the starting five, with Anthony Davis sliding over to the center spot. Starting forward Solomon Hill will also likely see additional run. Cousins should be considered questionable for Monday's tilt against the Jazz, which comes on the second half of a back-to-back set.

Scott Wilson Headshot

Wilson (lower body) will skate right wing on a fourth line with Tom Kuhnhackl and Oskar Sundqvist on Sunday.

Two games ago, Wilson played on Sidney Crosby's line. After missing Friday with a nagging injury, the winger will start Sunday's tilt as part of a depth unit. Of course, with the way injuries have hit Pittsburgh there's always a chance he could move back up in no time.
6:44 pm (EST)
Marc Gasol Headshot

Gasol (foot) will not play Sunday night against the Warriors, Rob Fischer of FOX Sports Southest reports.

Gasol is tending to a left foot strain, although the severity of which isn't clear. Look for Zach Randolph to take his place in the starting lineup.
6:41 pm (EST)
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.
