Gerald Wallace (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

"He just needs another day," coach Avery Johnson said. "We don’t want to have any setbacks. And that’s more for precautionary reasons." Wallace had five steals and three blocks last night in 29 minutes, but it would appear his ankle swelled up on him overnight. Keith Bogans is likely going to take over at small forward and Wallace is listed as day-to-day.

Khris Middleton (illness) did not practice on Wednesday, but Jason Kidd expects him to play in Game 6 against the Raptors on Thursday.

Middleton played through the illness in Game 5 on Monday, but he didn't look quite right going 3-of-8 from the field, so hopefully, with some extra rest he'll be able to get closer to 100 percent for Game 6. Check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) said he will not suit up for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.

Rondo really wants to get out there, but the fact remains that he's dealing with a pretty badly fractured right (shooting) thumb in addition to a torn ligament in his wrist, and according to him: "the slightest fall on the floor might further damage it." Rondo's next opportunity to play will come in Game 6 on Friday, but tonight, it'll be Isaiah Canaan starting at point guard with Jerian Grant and Michael Carter-Williams backing him up.

Chris Paul's 28 points weren't enough in Tuesday's 96-92 Game 5 defeat, as the Clippers fell to 2-3 against the Jazz.

He has a lot on his plate with Blake Griffin (toe) out for the playoffs, but his impressive fourth quarter effort wasn't enough -- he scored 15 of his 28 points in the fourth and sparked an 11-0 run at the beginning of that quarter. CP3 finished 10-of-19 from the field in 38 minutes with nine assists, four rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers, but the Clippers will need even more magic from him if they hope to avoid elimination on Friday for Game 6 in Utah.
Apr 26 - 1:44 AM

J.J. Redick scored 26 points in Tuesday's 96-92 Game 5 loss to the Jazz.

Redick scored 14 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter, finishing 7-of-12 from the field with three rebounds, one assist and three triples in 34 minutes. Redick played a whopping 42 minutes in his previous outing and it's clear that he's going to get a nice bump with Blake Griffin (toe) out for the playoffs. The return of Austin Rivers (hamstring) shouldn't really hurt him either because the Clippers played a ton of small ball tonight.
Apr 26 - 1:36 AM

Gordon Hayward hit 9-of-16 shots, 4-of-8 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for 27 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two steals in 41 minutes of Tuesday's Game 5 96-92 win over the Clippers to take a 3-2 lead in the series, with Game 6 taking place in Utah.

Hayward lasted just nine minutes for three points in Game 4 due to food poisoning, but looked great tonight. Boris Diaw, Rudy Gobert (double-double), George Hill, Joe Johnson and Rodney Hood all scored in double figures for the Jazz, as they came through down the stretch for the tough road win, and home-court advantage in their series. Hayward should be primed for another big game on Friday, and if he was able to do this with "not much legs" tonight, he should be even better in L.A. in Game 6.
Apr 26 - 1:30 AM

Kawhi Leonard scored 28 points in a 116-103 Game 5 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday as the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead.

Leonard has now scored in double digits in 25 straight playoff games which is the longest streak by a Spur since Tim Duncan's 26 from 2011-2013. He finished 9-of-16 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line (his first FT miss of the series), adding six assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples. The Spurs can close out this series with a Game 6 win in Memphis on Thursday and the Grizzlies still have no answer for Leonard.

Russell Westbrook scored 47 points in a 105-99 Game 5 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday as the Thunder were officially eliminated from the playoffs.

Westbrook played 42 minutes and was a +12 during his time on the court, but once again the Thunder melted down when he went to the bench. He finished 15-of-34 from the field with 11 rebounds, nine assists and seven turnovers. Westy was absolutely gassed by the end of the game and finished just 2-of-12 in the fourth quarter, and he also forced too many perimeter shots -- he hit 5-of-18 shots from beyond the arc. The MVP candidate had an epic season and broke Oscar Robertson's record with 43 triple-doubles, posting averages of 31.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 10.4 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.5 triples and 4.2 turnovers on 42.2 percent shooting.
Apr 25 - 11:12 PM

James Harden hit just 8-of-25 shots, 2-of-13 3-pointers and 16-of-17 free throws for 32 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in Tuesday's 105-99 win over the Thunder to win their first-round series 4-1.

Harden was easily outplayed by Russell Westbrook tonight, who hit 15-of-34 shots and 5-of-18 3-pointers for 47 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, but the Rockets were able to hold on for the win, helped by a 14-4 start to the fourth quarter in a close game. Most of Harden's help came from Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, Nene and Clint Capela, while Westbrook didn't have the same support system in place, which was the case for most of the season. Harden's Rockets will advance to face the winner of the Spurs-Grizzlies series, and it looks like the Spurs will take a 3-2 lead tonight, as of this writing. Either way, Harden's arch nemesis (Westbrook) is out of the way and he can now focus on trying to lead his team to a championship, without all the triple-double and MVP talk getting in the way of his ultimate goal.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) is "preparing to attempt to play" in Game 5 vs. Boston on Wednesday according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

This is a huge surprise because Rondo was initially ruled out. He was spotted getting up some shots at Tuesday's practice, but we should have a better idea of his status after the morning shootaround. If he plays, he will obviously be limited. Expect Isaiah Canaan to be the starter if Rondo can't get clearance.
Apr 25 - 9:18 PM

David Lee will remain in the starting lineup for Game 5 vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

While Dewayne Dedmon (illness) is available, coach Gregg Popovich said he will stick with the veteran. Lee played 33 minutes in Game 4, but wasn't too effective with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal. With that said, he should fare better tonight and is on the radar in DFS if you're looking for a cheap PF option.
Apr 25 - 7:17 PM

Jusuf Nurkic said he expects his leg to be fully healed in 2-3 months.

Nurkic has plenty of time to get himself ready for the 2017-18 season, and we'll be sure to track his progress every step of the way. The Portland players universally praised Nurkic at their exit interviews for his impressive play as a member of the Trail Blazers, and he could be in a for a big year next season as their full-time starter. Nurkic put in averages of 15.2 points, 7.1 boards, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.9 blocks through 20 games with the Blazers, and he said he'll be working on his 3-point shot this offseason, so he could take another big leap in Year-3.
