Shawn Marion (strained right groin) doesn't think he'll be able to play Saturday after going through a light shootaround.

Marion has called the injury "minor" but it looks like it'll cost him at least one game. We'll let you know if we hear anything official. Jae Crowder and Vince Carter should see more action if Marion sits against the Rockets.

Al Horford scored 15 points to help the Hawks advance in a Game 6 104-92 win in Boston on Thursday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

The blocks were the story with the Hawk putting up 12 of those to shut down the Celtics offense in the first three quarters. Horford was terrific on defense in this series, but he didn't bring it on the stat sheet. In the six games, he averaged 12.5 points, 8.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 2.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. His groin injury looks like it's behind him as he gets ready for a tougher matchup against the Cavs.

Isiah Thomas carried the offensive load in a season-ending 104-92 loss to the Hawks on Thursday, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.

He just needs some help on offense. The Celtics offense just falls apart when Thomas is out there in his All-Star season. The Celtics are playing with house money on IT after the Suns traded him away, so they will continue to feature him. They will likely add some help for Thomas on the offensive end, but the Pizza Guy should be ready to roll as a top-50 pick in drafts next season.

Spencer Hawes has been diagnosed with a right MCL sprain, and he will miss at least the next week of action.

Hawes will obviously miss Friday's Game 6 against the Heat, and he's going to be re-evaluated in one week, although it wouldn't be surprising at all to see his absence extend beyond that one-week timeline. Tyler Hansbrough, Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky should pick up some extra minutes in Hawes' absence.

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 6 against the Hawks.

The Celtics will go with the same starting lineup they've been using of Thomas, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson for Game 6, and Thomas will look to bounce back from a disappointing Game 5 performance for Thursday's home game.
Apr 28 - 6:09 PM

Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Friday's Game 6 against the Hornets.

Johnson was available to play for Game 5, but didn't actually step foot on the court. He'll likely again be available for Game 6, but he won't play enough minutes to matter in any setting.

Blake Griffin will not require surgery to repair his left quad.

Griffin underwent a bone marrow procedure on Wednesday, which is similar to a PRP injection and effectively eliminates the need for surgery. He's going to be sidelined for at least the next three months, so in addition to missing the remainder of the postseason, he won't be able to participate during the 2016 Olympic Games. He should be fine for the 2016-17 season, though.
Apr 28 - 4:07 PM

Nicolas Batum will again come off the bench for Friday's Game 6 against Miami.

The Hornets have now won three in a row, and Batum doesn't want to disrupt the chemistry of the first-unit. His ankle still isn't quite 100 percent, so expect his minutes to be in the 25 range. Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Marvin Williams, Frank Kaminsky and Al Jefferson will start.
Apr 28 - 3:01 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that his right hand is swollen, but he will fight through the pain and play in Friday's Game 6 against the Hornets.

Whiteside hurt his hand during Game 5's loss, but it doesn't appear to be anything serious enough to force him to the sidelines. Check back for another update on his status closer to Friday's tip.

Stephen Curry (knee) will begin testing his knee on the court next week, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

Spears reports that Curry is feeling better, according to sources, and is targeting next week to test his knee as he attempts to get back on the court. The Warriors are still awaiting a winner from the Clippers-Trail Blazers series, so he'll have some extra time to recover from his Grade 1 sprain. Shaun Livingston will continue to start as long as Curry is out, but we'll undoubtedly have updates before Golden State's next series starts.

Klay Thompson and the Warriors obliterated the Rockets in a series-clinching win on Wednesday, led by Klay's 27 points on 10-of-14 shooting, including a 7-of-11 mark from downtown.

Golden State built a 30-point lead mid-way through the third quarter, fueled by a 3-point barrage from Thompson, and they won by a final score of 114-81. He's the first player in NBA history to make at least seven 3s in consecutive playoff games -- if nothing else, tonight's eruption confirms that the Warriors are a scary team even when one Splash Brother is in street clothes.
Apr 28 - 1:27 AM

Shaun Livingston made 7-of-8 shots for 16 points during the Warriors' Game 5 victory, adding three boards, three assists and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

Livingston is a savvy defender whose offense is underrated -- he's not a 3-point threat, but he's a great passer who consistently uses his 6'7" frame to shoot over smaller guards from the paint out to 20 feet. Steph Curry (sprained knee) has an uncertain return date, so Livingston could earn at least a few more starts at PG in the second round of the playoffs.
