Derrick Rose (foot) was still limping on Thursday and is looking doubtful for Saturday's game.

Most in the Bulls organization are confident Rose will be able to return for the final two games of the regular season against the Pacers and Cavaliers on Wednesday and Thursday, if not before. While not ideal, it would still give Rose two games to get his rhythm back before the postseason begins. Rose owners need to tread carefully if you are allowed daily transactions over the last few games.

The Magic and Scott Skiles have agreed to a four-year deal.

The Magic were expected to make a run at Tom Thibodeau, but they're all set with their former point guard who holds the NBA record for most assists in a game. Skiles hasn't run the tightest rotation and former player Stephen Jackson said he's "more of a college coach." Regardless, the Magic could use a former player to give them some guidance. Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic are safe to draft, but we're slightly less bullish on the others due to the volatile rotation.

Mario Chalmers had arthroscopic surgery on Friday to repair an inflamed plica in his right knee.

It was just a 20-minute procedure and Chalmers is going to begin rehabbing immediately. Obviously, he'll be ready to go for training camp in the fall. Chalmers had an up-and-down year, averaging 10.2 points, 2.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.9 treys. He'll be a late-round flier in fantasy leagues next season.

Klay Thompson was diagnosed with a concussion on Friday.

His agent said he didn't have a concussion yesterday, but his agent isn't a neurologist. The Warriors said Klay had "extensive examinations" over the past two days, including neurological tests Friday morning. Under the NBA's concussion protocol, Klay will not be allowed to have court activity until he is not showing any symptoms. With six days off before Game 1, Thompson should be ready.

Kyrie Irving (knee) said that his health has been steady since beating the Hawks in the Eastern Conference finals.

Irving went on to say that he expects to start on Stephen Curry defensively in the Finals, but added that it will be a team effort in containing the 2014-15 league MVP. Cleveland was the best team in the league at defending the 3-point line during the postseason, holding their opposition to just 28.1 percent shooting from beyond the arc, but the Warriors were the second-best team from distance during the playoffs shooting 38.0 percent from deep. After a rather lackluster Conference Finals, NBA fans should be in for a show during the Finals.

Dwight Howard will be suspended one game without pay for collecting his fourth Flagrant Foul points during the 2015 postseason.

Howard's suspension will be served during the first game of next season in which he's eligible and physically able to play. He collected his fourth Flagrant Foul point when he extended his forearm into Andre Iguadala's neck during the closing minutes of Game 5 in the Western Conference Finals. Originally ruled as a common foul, the league upgraded the play to a Flagrant Foul 1 upon official review, deeming the contact to have been unnecessary.

The Magic have reportedly begun contract negotiations with Scott Skiles, and they hope to come to terms on a deal by Friday evening.

Skiles has long been rumored to be the frontrunner for the Orlando head coaching gig, so this report is far from shocking. He will obviously no longer be in the running for New Orleans’ head coaching opportunity, meaning Alvin Gentry and Jeff Van Gundy come to the forefront, with Tom Thibodeau serving as a bit of a dark horse candidate (although Thibs is said to be uninterested). Skiles isn't a fantasy friendly coach, so owners of Orlando players may be in for a bumpy ride next season.

Mychal Thompson, Klay Thompson's (concussion-like symptoms) father, speculates that his son should be cleared to play sometime before the NBA Finals.

When Mychal was asked to describe the difference in Klay a day after his injury, Mychal responded, "Antarctica to the jungles of Brazil." When pressed further to speculate on his son's availability for the Finals, Thompson stated: "I'm not a doctor, but if I'm going to guess in layman's terms, yeah I think [he'll be cleared for the Finals.] He seems to be feeling better by the hour." Thompson is scheduled to meet with the Warriors medical staff on Friday, after which we'll likely have another update on Golden State's sniper.

Klay Thompson's agent, Bill Duffy, said his client cleared tests and did not have a concussion.

This is getting weird. First, Klay passed a concussion test just after being kneed in the head, then the Warriors released a statement after the game that he had concussion-like symptoms. Now, his agent is saying something different. Thompson was dizzy, had to throw up and didn't feel well last night, so this new report is a little harder to believe than usual. We'll see what the Warriors say next. If this is true, he should be ready to go in the next couple days.

Paul Millsap said that he will require shoulder surgery this offseason, just rest.

Millsap is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and he's sure to have no shortage of suitors. He's put together a strong two years in Atlanta, and he finished the 2014-15 season with averages of 16.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.1 three-pointers per game on 47.6 percent shooting from the field. Regardless of what uniform he's wearing next season, he's a safe bet to put up early-round value for his across-the-board contributions to the stat sheet.

Klay Thompson (concussion) is feeling OK after experiencing concussion-like symptoms on Wednesday night, according to his father Mychal Thompson.

Thompson will have a week to recover and make it through the concussion protocol, but it's good news to hear that he's feeling better. "He threw up a lot late last night but he felt much better afterwards," said Mychal Thompson. "He was a little woozy after the game but very cognizant of what was going on around him. He's OK. He's doing much better after a good night's sleep." We'll keep a close eye on Thompson's status leading up to the June 4 start of the NBA Finals, but it sounds like the Warriors will have their sharpshooter available for Game 1.

Tom Thibodeau has been informed by the Bulls that he will not be retained as the team's head coach.

This isn't Earth-shattering news as Thibodeau has been rumored to be on his way out for quite some time now. "I appreciate the contributions that Tom Thibodeau made to the Bulls organization," Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf said in a team statement. "I have always respected his love of the game and wish him well in the future." Thibodeau will now jump to the front of the line as the most sought after free agent head coach, so we'll his status updated as things could move very quickly.
