Brandon Knight scored a season-high 26 points in the Pistons' 108-101 win over the Blazers on Monday, hitting 9-of-17 shots (3-of-6 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) with six rebounds and two assists.

Knight didn't have a steal or block and he needs lines like this on most nights to overcome his poor shooting marks and lack of defensive stats. We're also beginning to see a trend with Damian Lillard's defense, but for now we'll give Knight his just due for a great night. Greg Monroe posted a typical 20 and 10 with three assist, one steal, and one block in the win.

LeBron James fell just two assists shy of a triple-double during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Celtics with 27 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one 3-pointer, one block and six turnovers through 46 minutes of action.

James shot 10-of-24 from the field and 6-of-10 from the stripe, and this game was more of a wrestling match than a basketball game. The Cavs closed out their series today, so now they can just sit back and wait for the Bulls to close out their series against the Bucks. The likely second-round matchup of Chicago vs. Cleveland is going to be a very exciting series.

Gregg Popovich said that everyone will be available to play for Sunday's Game 4 against the Clippers.

Baynes spent Friday's Game 3 on the sidelines with a sprained ankle, but he'll return to action on Sunday. With the rest of the Spurs healthy, Baynes doesn't offer much fantasy value at all.

Jae Crowder left Game 4 against the Cavs' with a left knee sprain, and he will not return.

Crowder got caught with a nasty elbow from J.R. Smith that caused him to fall to the ground awkwardly, and in the process he injured his knee. He needed to be helped to the locker room, and there's really no way that Smith doesn't receive a suspension from the league for his actions today, the only question is how many games he’ll be forced to miss. Crowder ended Sunday's game with seven points, three rebounds and one assist through 17 minutes of action.

J.R. Smith was ejected from Sunday's Game 4 against the Celtics for a Flagrant 2 foul against Jae Crowder.

Smith was boxing out Crowder, and then hit him with a vicious elbow to the face, and there's a good chance Smith is looking at a suspension from the league. He'll finish Sunday's game with eight points, two 3-pointers, and two steals. Iman Shumpert will likely pick up most of his minutes during the Cavs' next game.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said that everyone came out of Game 4 fine health wise, and Nikola Mirotic (knee) "should be good" for Game 5 on Monday.

Mirotic didn't play very well in his return to action on Saturday, scoring just five points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer through 20 minutes of action. The minutes, however, were encouraging and we'd expect him to pick up his play on Monday.

Kevin Love suffered a left shoulder injury in Game 4 against the Celtics and he will not be able to return according to ESPN's Heather Cox.

Not good. He was tangled with Kelly Olynyk while they were fighting for a rebound and it appeared that his shoulder popped out of place. Love looked like he was in a lot of discomfort and immediately ran back to the locker room when it happened. The Cavs said that they will wait for Love to return to Cleveland to further evaluate the injury, and we'll be monitoring this situation very closely. Tristan Thompson and James Jones will have to play more if Love is forced to miss any time.

The Pelicans will offer Anthony Davis a five-year max deal this summer that could approach $140 million according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

This is probably the easiest decision the Pelicans will ever make, as Davis has quickly become one of the best players in the NBA. The details of the contract could change depending on the new cap rules, but the Pelicans plan on offering him as much money as possible. The Warriors swept New Orleans in the first round of the playoffs, but Davis was simply sensational with averages of 31.5 points, 11.0 boards, two assists, 3.0 blocks and 1.3 steals per game. He will be on the top of many draft boards in fantasy leagues next season.

According to teammate Joe Johnson, Deron Williams is dealing with a "severe" case of tendinitis in his knee.

Williams also suffered a bruised tailbone in Game 3 on Saturday, but he has been banged up for a while now and this news isn't too surprising given his injury history. Head coach Lionel Hollins doesn't know if Williams will be able to play in Game 4 on Monday, but we will update his status once we know more. Jarrett Jack will step into the starting lineup if Williams is forced to miss any action, and he would be a popular option for owners in daily leagues.

Richard Jefferson (calf) is planning on playing in Game 4 vs. the Rockets on Sunday, though head coach Rick Carlisle said he will be a game-time decision.

Jefferson has been poor in the playoffs so far, averaging just 3.3 points in 13.0 minutes per game. It sounds like he is good to go on Sunday, but Al-Farouq Aminu should continue to see the bulk of the minutes at small forward after producing 15 points, five boards, two blocks and two steals in 34 minutes during Game 3. We will update Jefferson's status as soon as we know more.
Apr 26 - 12:12 PM

Jared Sullinger (bruised tailbone) will be available to play in Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

Sullinger was unable to practice on Saturday and was supposedly a game-time decision, but it's a good sign that the Celtics cleared him to play with over an hour before tip-off. Sullinger is averaging 9.3 points and 5.7 boards while shooting 57 percent from the field in the series, so he is going to have to continue to provide solid minutes off the bench if the Celtics want to avoid getting swept by the Cavaliers.
Apr 26 - 11:51 AM

Marcus Smart was reportedly late to practice on Saturday because he overslept, but head coach Brad Stevens said that Jae Crowder was always going to start in Game 4.

There have been some indications that Smart will see reduced minutes for disciplinary reasons, so it's probably best for owners in fantasy leagues to look at other options. Jae Crowder is starting because his physical presence is needed to guard LeBron James, but there is no word on whether or not the switch is temporary.
