3/25/2017 Joakim Noah, NY, F-C
Noah was suspended 20 games without pay for violating the league's anti-drug policy, having tested positive for a substance found in some over-the-counter supplements.

Analysis: Noah has not played since Feb. 4 and likely was to miss the Knicks' final 10 games this season because of a left knee injury. The NBA said Noah's suspension ''will begin with the first NBA regular season or playoff game for which he is eligible and physically able to play.'' At minimum, that means the suspension will carry over into at least the first 10 games of next season.
3/25/2017 Ryan Anderson, Hou, F-C
Anderson will miss Sunday's game against the Thunder and could be facing an extended absence due to a sprained right ankle.

Analysis: Anderson got hurt in Friday's win over the Pelicans, after which he said he felt a pop and that there was swelling on the bone. The injury sounds severe enough that Anderson could miss at least a few games if not more, especially with Houston wanting to make sure he's at full strength for the playoffs.

3/25/2017 Hassan Whiteside, Mia, C
Whiteside did not practice Saturday due to an ankle sprain but is expected to play Sunday against Boston.

3/25/2017 Danny Green, SA, G-F
Green (rest) will not play Saturday against the Knicks.

Analysis: Green hasn't had a night off since November and maybe could use the break. The Spurs' starting shooting guard is averaging 6.2 points on 33.3 percent shooting in his last 16 games.
3/25/2017 LeBron James, Cle, F
The Cavs are listing James as questionable for Saturday's game against Washington due to a corneal abrasion to his right eye which he suffered Friday night.

Analysis: James had said after being poked in the eye during Friday's game that there was a chance he would sit out this game, especially considering it's on the back end of a back-to-back. It appears he'll be a game-time call.
