Jose Calderon triple-doubled with 13 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and two 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting in another start at point guard for injured Kyle Lowry.

The Raptors beat the Pacers, in Indiana, despite playing in a triple-overtime war against the Jazz on Monday night. And in those two games, Calderon averaged 16.5 points, six rebounds, 13.5 assists and 2.5 3-pointers. Lowry is having a second opinion on his ankle in New York and Calderon has probably earned enough minutes to sustain some value even when Lowry is back at full strength. In other words, while JC won't stay this hot going forward, he's worth owning in all leagues.

Andre Iguodala (leg) said he considers himself questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

There really hasn't been much optimism on Iguodala. Coach Steve Kerr said today that he wouldn't play him until he can run, and he's also having trouble moving laterally. The Warriors really couldn't find a fifth option until the second half, so maybe Kerr mixes it up. Expect to see Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and maybe even Pat McCaw see some run.

James Harden scored 32 points with seven rebounds and nine assists but also had nine turnovers in Game 6 against the Warriors.

He did all he could to keep Houston in this game, but the Rockets had 21 turnovers and he contributed nine of them, the most he's had this postseason. He now has five career playoff games with at least nine turnovers, the next most by any player over the last 30 years is three. The Rockets team as a whole, but especially Harden, will have to cut down on the turnovers to win Game 7.

Clint Capela scored two points (1-of-4 FG, 0-of-2 FT) with 16 rebounds and an assist in Houston's 115-86 Game 6 loss to Golden State on Saturday.

He didn't score until the 5:58 mark in the fourth quarter and the Rockets were -32 when he was on the floor. This was his lowest scoring game of the postseason and worst +/- of the entire season. Capela was big on the boards, but he'll need a better performance in Game 7 if the Rockets want to win.
May 26 - 11:23 PM

Kevon Looney is getting another start in Game 6 on Saturday.

He'll be out there with the other four All-Stars for the third time in a row as Andre Iguodala (leg) recovers). Looney likely won't have as much defensive pressure on him in this game because he won't have to get switched on to Chris Paul (hamstring), but the Rockets almost certainly will try to put him on James Harden when they can. Looney has scored four points in each of last three games with little else, so the bar isn't very high in DFS.

Chris Paul (hamstring) said he's "hopeful to return to the court this postseason," according to TNT's Kristen Ledlow.

He's out tonight and he is going to be re-evaluated once the team is back in Houston while getting daily treatment. The Rockets did rule Paul out early on Friday, and there really hasn't been much optimism of him suiting up for a potential Game 7 on Monday. With him out today, Eric Gordon starts while Gerald Green and Luc Mbah a Moute handle the vast majority of the bench minutes.
May 26 - 8:15 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute will return to the rotation on Saturday against the Warriors.

The Rockets were basically running a 6.5-man rotation before the Chris Paul (hamstring) injury, so now it looks like Mbah a Moute will be stepping in as the seventh man with Gerald Green on the bench. It's possible that coach Mike D'Antoni keeps LMAM on a shorter leash given his struggles, but he could get 15-20 minutes at Oracle this evening.
May 26 - 7:39 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) will not play in Game 6 on Saturday, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

He is still day-to-day, but the team still has concerns about how he's healed from his injury in Game 3. With him out, the Warriors shouldn't be in dire straits with perimeter defense this time because Chris Paul is out, as well. We should still see Kevon Looney in the starting lineup while Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston and Quinn Cook help out on the bench.

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.
May 26 - 3:45 PM

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.
May 26 - 3:15 PM

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.
