Kelly Olynyk will start Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

With Amir Johnson (shoulder) out, Olynyk should see a slight bump in minutes tonight in addition to Jonas Jerebko. After being held to a combined two points in Games 1 and 2, Olynyk gave the Celtics a nice spark in Game 3 with 15 points in 23 minutes. Boston needs offense and floor spacing with Isaiah Thomas (hip) out, so Olynyk should be heavily involved unless he starts out cold from the field.

Amir Johnson (right shoulder) will not suit up for Game 4 against the Cavs on Tuesday, according to sources of Michael Eaves of ESPN.

With Johnson set to spend Game 4 on the sidelines, we could see Kelly Olynyk move into the starting five, and there should be some more playing time available for Jonas Jerebko. For now, we'll be considering Johnson questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

Manu Ginobili scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with seven assists, one rebound, three steals and one 3-pointer in Monday's 129-115 Game 4 loss as the Spurs were eliminated from the postseason.

Making his first playoff start since 2013, Ginobili became the 24th player in NBA history to score 3,000+ postseason points. Ginobili will be 40 years old in July, but he hasn't decided if his NBA career is over -- he said he will take 3-4 weeks to discuss it over with his family. "I'll have to choose between two truly wonderful options," he said. One of the craftiest players in NBA history and a four-time champion, Ginobili should have a spot in the Hall of Fame waiting for him regardless of what he decides.

Stephen Curry dropped a game-high 36 points in Monday's 129-115 Game 4 win as the Warriors swept the Spurs.

The Warriors will be back in the finals for the third year in a row. Curry shot 14-of-24 from the field with six rebounds, five assists and five 3-pointers and has never looked better, averaging 27.9 points per game in his previous 11 playoff games. Curry said after Game 3 that he's been battling a sore right (shooting) elbow for a little while, so the extra time off will be key -- Game 1 of the NBA Finals isn't until June 1. He will be looking to redeem himself after a poor showing in the Finals in 2015-16.

Manu Ginobili was a surprise starter for Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday.

He wasn't listed as the official starter, but coach Gregg Popovich isn't the most transparent coach with his lineups. With San Antonio trailing 3-0, this could be a great time for the Spurs to showcase Ginobili in what could be his final NBA game. Kyle Anderson will return to the bench.

Patrick McCaw will start Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday with JaVale McGee returning to the bench.

The Spurs are starting a small-ball lineup with Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Jonathon Simmons and LaMarcus Aldridge, so the Warriors will counter with Stephen Curry, Patrick McCaw, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. JaVale McGee will come off the bench, but he should still be involved with Zaza Pachulia (heel) out again.

Zaza Pachulia (heel) will not play in Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday.

The Warriors will play it safe with Zaza since they have a 3-0 series lead. Coach Steve Kerr said he won't decide on a starting lineup until he sees what San Antonio does, but he did add that he will give the nod to either JaVale McGee or Patrick McCaw.

Kawhi Leonard (ankle) will not play in Game 4 on Monday vs. the Warriors

He was never expected to play and was previously considered doubtful. With the Spurs trailing the Warriors 3-0, this could be the end of Leonard's season. Expect to see a lot of Jonathon Simmons tonight with Kyle Anderson picking up some extra minutes as well.
May 22 - 7:18 PM

Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) will play in Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday.

Zaza Pachulia (heel) remains questionable. Iguodala was originally considered probable after logging 19 minutes in Game 3, but with the Warriors holding a comfortable 3-0 series lead, they may limit his workload again tonight. Fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check while he's limited.

Guerschon Yabusele underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of both feet according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg.

The 16th pick of the 2016 draft spent most of the season in China where he averaged 20.9 points and 9.4 rebounds before joining the Maine Red Claws of the D-League for their playoff run. Yabusele is "unlikely" to be ready for summer league, but he is expected to be good to go for the start of training camp. The 6-foot-8, 265-pound forward has lots of potential on both ends of the court and the Celtics could use some help in their frontcourt, so we'll be watching his progress closely.

According to The Vertical, Paul Millsap has opted out of his $21.4 million contract for the 2017-18 season and will become a free agent.

The 32-year-old All-Star is arguably the top power forward available this summer and should be able to command a max deal. Millsap has said that he would like to re-sign with Atlanta and the Hawks have made it clear that bringing him back is their top priority, but he could potentially walk with the Hawks getting nothing in return (just like Al Horford did last summer). Millsap averaged 18.1 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 1.1 triples on 44.2 percent shooting this season, but he had trouble staying healthy and appeared in just 69 games.
