Khris Middleton Headshot

Middleton will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Suns, Eric Nehm of ESPN Milwaukee reports.

Added 2:03 pm (EST)
Middleton will replace Michael Beasley in the starting lineup as he returns to a bench role, while the rest of the usual starters will remain in place. On Friday Middleton put up nine points and three rebounds in 24 minutes against the Jazz.
Tyler Ennis Headshot

Ennis will be active and available to play in Sunday's game against the Spurs, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.

Added 1:59 pm (EST)
After being traded from the Rockets to the Lakers just prior to the trade deadline, Ennis was held out of Friday's contest against the Thunder, as the Lakers wanted to give him some additional time to get settled in with his new team. Now that he's had a few days to get comfortable, Ennis will be available to play Sunday, but he's only the Lakers third option at point guard behind D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson, so he'll likely struggle to find significant minutes.
Victor Oladipo Headshot

Oladipo (back) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans.

Added 1:44 pm (EST)
Oladipo was able to do some light shooting at Saturday's non-contact practice, but his back spasms are apparently still bothersome enough to force him out of his second straight contest. It's expected that rookie Alex Abrines will pick up another start at shooting guard in Oladipo's stead after recording a career-high 19 points in 29 minutes during Friday's win over the Lakers.
Cody Zeller Headshot

Zeller (quad) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

Added 1:33 pm (EST)
Zeller has missed 12 of the last 13 games for the Hornets with what is being listed as a sore quad, although it's clearly quite significant considering he's been sidelined just over a month now. He's not expected to take the court yet again Sunday, with his next opportunity to play coming on Tuesday against the Lakers. Look for Frank Kaminsky to log another start in his place and with Miles Plumlee (calf) also out, he'll be relied upon for big minutes Sunday. Kaminsky is coming off an impressive showing Saturday against the Kings where he went off for 23 points (9-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt), 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals over 38 minutes.
Omer Asik Headshot

Asik (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

Added 1:05 pm (EST)
Asik is now slated to be sidelined for the third consecutive game due to an illness, although it won't have much of an impact on the Pelicans' frontcourt rotation. His next chance to return will come Wednesday against the Pistons.
E'Twaun Moore Headshot

Moore (personal) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.

Added 1:04 pm (EST)
Moore missed Saturday's game against the Mavericks with a personal matter, but as expected, it won't keep him off the court for long. He'll be back for Sunday's tilt with the Thunder and will likely reclaim a role in the starting as the team's top shooting guard. If that's the case, look for Hollis Thompson to head back to the bench in the corresponding move and see a decreased role.
Willie Reed Headshot

Reed (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Added 1:00 pm (EST)
Reed underwent an MRI on Sunday, revealing right ankle bursitis which will keep him listed as day-to-day following Monday's absence. Udonis Haslem and Okaro White could see additional minutes off the bench, while Reed's next opportunity to return will come Wednesday against the 76ers.
Ian Clark Headshot

Clark submitted nine points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and two steals over 19 minutes in Saturday's 112-95 win over the Nets.

Added 12:21 pm (EST)
Clark was back to a more robust amount of playing time after seeing single-digit minutes Thursday versus the Clippers, and he parlayed the extra run into another productive outing off the bench. The fourth-year guard has seen an uptick in production across the stat sheet this season, with his scoring (6.4), rebounds (1.5) and assists (1.2) all representing career highs. With Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson ahead of him -- and promising rookie Patrick McCaw also part of the backcourt equation -- Clark's role naturally fluctuates from time to time, but he's become a consideration in very deep formats.
Patrick McCaw Headshot

McCaw produced nine points (3-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 25 minutes in Saturday's 112-95 win over the Nets.

Added 12:14 pm (EST)
McCaw drew the start at small forward with Kevin Durant (hand) out of commission Saturday, and he acquitted himself well in his supporting role. The Splash Bros. took care of the majority of heaving lifting on offense as expected, but the 2016 second-round pick was aggressive with the shots he did take, putting up five of his seven attempts from long range. McCaw will naturally shift back to the bench if Durant returns Monday night against the Sixers, but would likely be in line for another start otherwise.
Zaza Pachulia Headshot

Pachulia went for eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block over 20 minutes in Saturday's 112-95 win over the Nets.

Added 12:10 pm (EST)
Pachulia saw two more minutes than in his return Thursday and posted his best rebound total since Jan. 23, when he'd hauled in 10 versus the Heat. With Kevin Durant out with a hand bruise Saturday, all of the Warriors seemed to see at least a slight uptick in usage, and Pachulia was no exception. However, he did also run into foul trouble, curtailing his overall playing time. Apparently back at full health following a lengthy absence due to a shoulder injury, the veteran can be counted on for the occasional double-digit scoring effort and solid work on the glass.
