Jazz sign G Chris Quinn to a non-guaranteed contract.

Quinn will get a training camp invite after spending last season in Russia. Despite his NBA experience, it would be surprising to see him make the team. Trey Gilder, Darnell Jackson and Brian Butch will also be in camp with Utah.

Otto Porter (neck) practiced on Sunday and he's being listed as probable for Monday's Game 4 in Atlanta.

Porter played through the neck strain on Saturday, and it looks like that trend will continue on Monday night, although he could be limited. We should have official confirmation on his status following Monday morning's shootaround.

Marreese Speights will "probably" start Game 4 vs. the Jazz on Sunday according to coach Doc Rivers.

Blake Griffin (toe) is out for the playoffs and Speights started the second half of Game 3, so he was the heavy favorite to start even before Doc's comments. Speights is a great per-minute producer and is certainly on the DFS radar, but the Clippers will likely play a lot of small ball which could keep his minutes around 20. In two starts during the regular season, Speights averaged 13.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.0 treys in 21.5 minutes.

Rudy Gobert (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's Game 4 vs. the Clippers.

He was originally listed as doubtful, but now it sounds like he will be a game-time call. For what it's worth, he did not go through shootaround. With Blake Griffin (toe) out for the playoffs and Gobert on the verge of a return, the Jazz have to feel pretty good about their chances. Gobert will likely have restrictions if he's cleared to play, making him a risky play in DFS. His return would limit the fantasy appeal of Derrick Favors.

C.J. Miles will start over Monta Ellis again in Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Miles is generally more aggressive in the second unit, but his splits as a starter and reserve during the regular season are very similar. Miles can get hot in a hurry which makes him a DFS tournament play, but he's also no stranger to duds. In a start in Game 3, Miles scored nine points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Stephen Curry buried the Blazers during a 119-113 win in Game 3 on Saturday, scoring 34 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

A 19-1 run in this comeback victory propelled the Dubs to what is now a +47 margin of victory in this series. The Warriors now have a 3-0 lead and one of their biggest strengths in this win was an unusual one with only seven turnovers. Those seven turnovers match a playoff franchise record, and Curry only had one of them en route to his 21st 30-plus scoring game in his postseason career. With this win, the Warriors may opt to take it easier on Kevin Durant for at least one more game. They'll look to close this one out on Monday in Portland.

C.J. McCollum scored a team-high 32 points during a 119-113 Game 3 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding six rebounds, two steals and six 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Damian Lillard was right behind C.J. with 31 points in a tough loss. It looked like Dame and C.J. were going to lead the Blazers to a win with a 17-point lead in the second half, but a Warriors outburst in the third quarter was just too much to overcome. The Blazers will likely have more minutes from Jusuf Nurkic on Monday, but they're in what looks to be an insurmountable 0-3 hole. Hopefully, the Blazers can extend this series on Monday.

Mike Conley scored a playoff career-high 35 points during a thrilling 110-108 overtime victory over the Spurs in Game 4 on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

Maybe his contract was a bargain after all. Conley just continues to cause defensive breakdowns, including a beautiful drive with five seconds left in regulation to send this one to overtime. As you might expect, coach David Fizdale had some thoughts about his guy. "I don't think we'll be talking about how much money he makes anymore," Fizdale said. Conley always gets the "underrated" tag, but his fantasy owners know that Conley has been absolutely crushing for months. We have a series and Game 5 will break this 2-2 tie on Tuesday.

Kawhi Leonard was incredible during a 110-108 overtime loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday, scoring a playoff career-high 43 points with eight rebounds, three assists, six blocks and seven 3-pointers.

His fourth quarter was one for the ages, scoring the Spurs' final 16 points in regulation. The Grizzlies were throwing doubles at him for most of his halfcourt sets and coach David Fizdale mentioned he pulled out all the stops to try and stop him. "I'm taking suggestions on how to guard Kawhi Leonard," Fizdale said after the game. Leonard's offense has been unreal in this series as he matched his playoff career-high 32 in Game 1, set a new career high in Game 2 with 37, and followed that up with this explosion. He did struggle a bit in overtime with some offensive mistakes, so maybe he is human after all. Regardless, this is Exhibit A for anyone who wants to argue Kawhi is the best player in the NBA.

Updating a previous item, Rudy Gobert (knee) remains doubtful to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

The questionable update from earlier today did seem a little odd and another report called him unlikely to play, so Gobert likely needs at least another game off. The Jazz haven't provided many encouraging notes on Gobert outside of a report he is walking without a limp. For now, expect Derrick Favors to log most of the minutes at center. Joe Johnson, Joe Ingles and Rodney Hood also should benefit, especially with no Blake Griffin (toe).
Apr 22 - 9:48 PM

Paul Millsap torched the Wizards during the Game 3 116-98 victory, scoring 29 points with 14 rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in just 33 minutes.

After battling through a knee injury earlier this month, it's safe to say he is back with this gem and a 27-point, 10-board game in Game 2. As great as the outing was, all the talk will be about how Markieff Morris called Millsap a "crybaby" on top of all the MMA talk leading up to this game. When Millsap found out about the comment, he had a little trash talk of his own. "I don't care. So what? Take his loss and go back to the hotel," Millsap said. The Hawks are about inconsistent as it gets for these playoff teams, but they sure can get hot in a hurry. All eyes will continue to be on the Millsap-Morris battle.

Rudy Gobert (knee) has been upgraded to questionable to face the Clippers on Sunday.

Interesting. An earlier report said he was unlikely to play and there has been very little encouraging news on Gobert since the day after his injury. The Jazz listed Derrick Favors as doubtful for almost a month last season, so don't put too much stock into this update. If he can go, this would obviously be a massive swing with him in and Blake Griffin (toe) out.
