Shawn Marion is doubtful to return to Thursday's game against the Suns due to a strained right groin.

Marion pulled up lame and he had been playing well before tonight. All the miles on his tires might be catching up with the 34-year-old forward, so stay tuned to see how this injury impacts his status for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

Patrick Beverley will have an MRI on Monday after spraining his right knee during Sunday's game.

Beverley tore his right meniscus on March 27 but he was able to avoid surgery and return to action just two weeks later, and there is reportedly "a great deal of fear" that he's seriously aggravated his injury. He's questionable to play on Wednesday and if he can't suit up the Rockets will shift Jeremy Lin into the starting lineup.

LaMarcus Aldridge set a Blazers franchise record with 46 points on Sunday, adding 18 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in a thrilling OT road victory in Game 1.

Aldridge averaged 26.5 points and 15.5 rebounds vs. the Rockets this season and he clearly has their number, as neither Terrence Jones nor Dwight Howard could contain him defensively. He made 17-of-30 FGs and 10-of-13 FTs and even sank both of his 3-point attempts, despite having made just three during the entire regular season. The Rockets' official Twitter account summed things up late in the game, saying, "We finally stopped LaMarcus Aldridge. He fouled out."

Damian Lillard was kneed in the thigh by Dwight Howard on Sunday, but he kept playing and finished with 31 points, nine rebounds and five assists in his first NBA playoff game.

Lillard didn't seem bothered by the injury, catching fire down the stretch and sinking a clutch 3-pointer to tie the game with 29 seconds remaining, en route to a thrilling OT victory. He'll probably be stiff and sore in the morning but with Game 2 scheduled for Wednesday the Blazers' dynamic second-year PG should be ready to go.

Nene started on Sunday for the first time since spraining his MCL in late February, finishing the Wizards' Game 1 victory with 24 points on 11-of-17 shooting, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

Nene had insisted on playing no more than 20 minutes once he returned from his injury, but he logged 35 minutes on Sunday and his conditioning didn't seem to be a problem. He feasted on the Bulls with a sequence of wide open mid-range jumpers and he was the key to stealing home court advantage. That's no big surprise since the Wizards had a 30-23 record with Nene in the lineup this season, but just 14-15 without him.

Al Jefferson (strained plantar fascia) left Game 1's loss at Miami in a walking boot after feeling a rip in his left plantar fascia.

He admitted he had to "suck it up" after the game and mentioned he felt a pop. Jefferson needed a pain-killing shot after the injury and at halftime, so he's probably not going to feel great on Monday. The Bobcats will likely hold him out of practice in the next couple days and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday. If he's limited, Bismack Biymobo will have some massive shoes to fill.
Apr 20 - 6:56 PM

LeBron James made four 3-pointers during Game 1's 99-88 win over the Bobcats on Sunday, scoring a total of 27 points with nine boards, one assist and three turnovers.

The Heat had 11 3-pointers today and that was a big part of the win. Their offense clearly wasn't in rhythm with only 14 assists on their 35 field goals and only had 24 points in the paint. LeBron had a couple huge 3-pointers in the third quarter, which helped swing the momentum to help the Heat dominate the early fourth quarter. He owned the Bobcats all season with 37.8 points per game in four games, so he's likely going to put up some massive numbers in this series.
Apr 20 - 6:45 PM

Dwyane Wade was superb in his 34 minutes of action on Sunday vs. the Bobcats, making 10-of-16 from the field for 23 points with one board, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He played with a ton of confidence and made his first 3-pointer since Feb. 3. Wade looked completely healthy and the Heat taking their foot of the pedal with Wade's workload seems like it's going to pay dividends. Of course, the Heat still have to win 15 more games if they want to have win their third consecutive title.
Apr 20 - 6:29 PM

Nene is listed as a starter against the Bulls for Game 1 on Sunday.

He's been coming off the bench in the past four games since returning from injury and the Wizards seem to be comfortable putting him back in his usual role. Nene runs the offense quite a bit to take some pressure of John Wall and the team will need him to stay on the court in this series. Trevor Booker moves back to the bench.
Apr 20 - 6:24 PM

Tony Parker put the Spurs on his back in Game 1's 90-85 win over the Mavericks Sunday, scoring 21 points with four boards, six assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

The Spurs just took over late to win this game. They were getting all sorts of easy buckets and almost doubled up the Mavs in the points-in-the-paint battle 56-32. Parker had a big hand in that with four of his assists leading to layups while eight of his nine makes were layups. He's a marvel with respect to efficiency while he and coach Gregg Popovich are on the same page like few others.
Apr 20 - 4:02 PM

Tim Duncan banged knees with Monta Ellis in the second half of Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks and returned to action, finishing with 27 points, seven boards and one turnover in 38 minutes.

In a post-game interview on TNT, Duncan said he was fine and he called the injury kind of a "funny bone thing." Duncan made 12-of-20 from the field and all but one of those makes came from within 10 feet today. He should be ready to roll for Game 2 on Wednesday and will likely continue to see minutes closer to 40 per game -- well above his season average of 29.2.
Apr 20 - 3:38 PM

Kevin Durant hit 13-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 33 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Saturday's easy Game 1 win over the Grizzlies.

The final score was 100-86 in favor of the Thunder, as they became the only home team to win on the opening day of the playoffs. Russell Westbrook added 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, but was 0-for-5 from downtown. The Grizzlies made a nice run in the third quarter, but this one was really never in doubt. It's hard to see the Thunder losing this series after tonight's strong statement.
