NBA teams can use the amnesty clause between July 11-17 during the offseason.

After seven days the window closes and teams must wait until next summer, so we could see a flurry of financially-motivated waivers in early July. Thus far seven teams have used their amnesty provision: the Magic (Gilbert Arenas), Warriors (Charlie Bell), Nets (Travis Outlaw), Pacers (James Posey), Trail Blazers (Brandon Roy), Cavaliers (Baron Davis) and Knicks (Chauncey Billups).

Taurean Prince said he'll focus on his handles and on-ball defense this summer.

"Turning defense into offense—that seems to be a key," Prince said. "But most importantly, ball handling. If you tighten up your ball handling, everything else becomes easier." New coach Lloyd Pierce also said that the Hawks haven't played their best ball yet, and it sounds like he's going to ask Prince to do even more. Needless to say, Prince will be a hot fantasy target after a really strong offensive finish last season.

Andre Iguodala (leg) remains questionable for Game 6 on Saturday.

There's still some concern on Iguodala and he is day-to-day. The Warriors haven't been doing a shootaround, which means we likely won't get an update until 7:30 EDT. The Warriors were hoping to have him for Game 4, but he has been out since his injury in Game 3. If he's out, Quinn Cook and Shaun Livingston could see run along with Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney up front.

Jayson Tatum was evaluated by doctors on Saturday, and there's no concern of a concussion.

He felt great after the game and today, as well. "Nothing there to be concerned about," coach Brad Stevens said. Tatum did take some contact to his head from the Kevin Love collision and he didn't look like himself for about half the game, so the team will evaluate him again before Game 7 on Sunday. For now, expect him to get 36-40 minutes in Game 7.

The Warriors are planning to activate Pat McCaw (back) for Game 6 on Saturday, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

He's officially being called questionable. This is great news after McCaw suffered a scary fall against the Kings on Mar. 31. He's been doing some on-court work with the team and was getting shots up during shootaround on Thursday. He probably won't be in the rotation tonight, but maybe that'll change. Regardless, this is a pleasant surprise today.

Kevin Love (concussion) has been ruled out for Game 7 on Sunday.

He was just placed in the concussion protocol, and it would have been almost impossible to clear that if he is still dealing with symptoms at this time of day. Love does have a history of concussions with his most recent one coming in March, so it's possible he would be out beyond a possible win on Sunday. It should be Jeff Green starting with more Larry Nance. Tristan Thompson may also have to play a little more in this game.

Spurs assistant coaches Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka interviewed with the Raptors for the franchise's head coaching job on Thursday and Friday, respectively, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com.

The Raptors went to the Texas assistant well the last time, but it was with Dwane Casey and the Mavs. Messina and Udoka are two of the top three assistant coaches with Messina taking the head job while Gregg Popovich was away from the team in April. The Raptors have also looked into internal options with Nick Nurse, Rex Kalamian and G-League coach Jerry Stackhouse. Hopefully, they have a hire well before the NBA Draft.

Jeff Green scored 14 points with three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

He started the second half for Kevin Love (head) and gave the Cavs some of his best minutes of the series. Green had been playing well against the Raptors, but he was losing minutes up until today. He was terrific in the post on offense to take at least a little pressure of LeBron James, and he was in the right spots on D. Coach Ty Lue would almost certainly have to extend Green's minutes while Love is on the shelf. He'd be a DFS play on Sunday.

Terry Rozier was terrific in a 109-99 losing effort in Cleveland on Friday, scoring 28 points with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one turnover and six 3-pointers.

He was 10-of-16 from the field and made both free throws to get him to a sterling 1.56 points per possession. The Cavs were really limiting Al Horford on screen-and-roll plays, so that helped get Rozier open. Maybe the Cavs dared Rozier to shoot the ball because of his road woes, so perhaps they won't have a similar plan in Game 7. He's been awesome at home all postseason.
May 25 - 11:23 PM

Jaylen Brown made 11-of-18 from the field for 27 points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Cavs in Game 6 on Friday.

He was on a heater in the first quarter, scoring 15 of Boston's 25 points with Brown scoring the final nine of the frame. Brown was extremely aggressive on the offensive end and he didn't turn the ball over, but it wasn't his best defensive game. If Marcus Morris plays poorly again, Brown may have to defend LeBron James more, which could hurt his offensive output.
May 25 - 11:18 PM

Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Aron Baynes and Al Horford will start again on Friday against the Cavs.

This time, coach Ty Lue should be expecting Semi Ojeleye to be on the bench. Kidding aside, Lue also gave credit to coach Brad Stevens for the Baynes move, which helped out Horford in Game 5. Marcus Morris is still going to see minutes in the up 30 and will be the main defender on LeBron James.
May 25 - 7:03 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni says that Eric Gordon will start Game 6 against the Warriors on Saturday.

With Chris Paul being out due to a right hamstring strain, it's no surprise Gordon will get the start here. It's Gordon's first start of the playoffs and the Rockets will need him to step up to replace how well CP3 has played over the last couple of games. Paul's status going forward is still uncertain, so Gordon could also start on Monday in Game 7 if the Warriors win Game 6 on Saturday.
