Kevin Love was diagnosed with a right thumb contusion following Friday's game and is listed as day-to-day.

"Whatever you want to call it, it's stiff right now, real stiff. It hurts," Love said. He was non-committal about whether or not he'd be able to suit up against the Mavericks on Saturday. The Wolves may have Love get a precautionary MRI to make sure, and we'll wait for the next report before we say one way or another if we think he'll miss considerable time. He should be considered questionable for Saturday and Dante Cunningham makes for a short-term speculative add.

Damian Lillard carried the Blazers to get a Game 4 win on Monday, scoring 32 points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

The Blazers pulled out a 99-92 win thanks to outscoring the Grizzlies 31-17 in the fourth. Lillard's trey was a four-point play to help Lillard alone match the Grizzlies scoring in the final 8:48 of this game (12 points each). It was Lillard time. The Blazers are now down 3-1 and will head to Memphis for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Meyers Leonard picked up 35 minutes of playing time against the Grizzlies on Monday with 13 points, 13 boards, two assists one steal and three 3-pointers on 5-of-6 from the field.

That's an effective field goal percentage of 108.3 and Leonard took playing time away from Robin Lopez, who played just 21 minutes with six points and three rebounds. The Blazers have gained more confidence in Leonard since the break and he could have a bigger role next season. A lot of that will have to do with LaMarcus Aldridge.

Michael Carter-Williams may have turned in his best game as a Buck during Monday's Game 5 94-88 win in Chicago, scoring 22 points on 10-of-15 from the field with eight rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three blocks in 38 minutes.

He even turned in his ankle in this game and had to be re-taped. It's pretty easy to figure out why he was successful today: MCW had all 10 makes come from inside the paint today and he only had four attempts from beyond 14 feet. The Bulls will likely force him to shoot from distance more, but we still have to give Carter-Williams a ton of credit here. The Bucks will look to tie the series in Game 6 on Thursday.

Khris Middleton scored 21 points in 38 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with four rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers on 8-of-16 from the field.

He was really hot in the first half with 15 points, but cooled off after halftime. Middleton wasn't shooting the ball well before this game, making 36.2 percent from the field for 17.0 points in his previous four. He'll likely have another good game in front of the home crowd on Thursday. For what it's worth, Middleton's 50.9 percent from the field in home games this regular season was 8.3 percent better than it was on the road.

Pau Gasol scored 25 points during a Game 5 94-88 loss to the Bucks in Chicago on Monday, adding 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes.

This is a really bad loss for the Bulls. Their offense vanished in the fourth and coach Tom Thibodeau still doesn't seem to have the right frontcourt combination. Joakim Noah was everywhere on Monday with 10 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, one steal and three blocks in 32 minutes. Taj Gibson played just 15 minutes with 12 points and three boards because Nikola Mirotic played more power forward today. Mirotic was also quiet with three points and one rebound. The Bulls have lost all of their momentum and will take their 3-2 lead to Milwaukee on Thursday.
Apr 27 - 10:58 PM

Derrick Rose struggled for a second consecutive game against the Bucks on Monday, making 5-of-20 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and six turnovers.

He missed all seven attempts from deep and coach Tom Thibodeau will probably have a word with Rose to relax on those attempts. The Bulls made just 7-of-30 (23.3 percent) in the fourth quarter and only had seven fast-break points in the entire game. Rose was able to play with some control in his enormous Game 3, but he's been chaotic in the last two games. He'll get a couple days off before Game 6 on Thursday.
Apr 27 - 10:45 PM

Brook Lopez dominated against the Hawks on Monday with 26 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks in 43 minutes.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and is using his size extremely well on offense in this series. Lopez continues to be a force in the postseason with 20 points in nine out of his 11 postseason games (3-of-4 this year). He's been outstanding since the break and the Nets will have at least one more game at home with the series tied.
Apr 27 - 10:25 PM

Nick Calathes will start at point guard against the Blazers on Monday.

Beno Udrih arrived in a walking boot to the arena, so he's not at 100 percent. Based on that information, it's hard to like either guy with so much uncertainty. The two might split the minutes down the middle, but it could go either way depending on Udrih's ankle.
Apr 27 - 10:17 PM

Michael Carter-Williams rolled his ankle in the third quarter on Monday and will return to action.

He hobbled back to the locker room under his own power. Carter-Williams might be at less than 100 percent, but he'll do his best to keep the Bucks in it.

Chandler Parsons (knee) could need microfracture on his right knee.

It's only a possibility for now and he is getting multiple opinions on his ailing knee. If he is going to have that surgery, he'll be out for the start of training camp and possibly the start of the season. Parsons was a top-60 player in fantasy last season, but this surgery would move him closer to 100 on fantasy draft boards.

J.R. Smith has been suspended for two games for his shot to Jae Crowder's face on Sunday.

He won't play in Game 1 or 2 in the second round. Considering his history, the suspension could have been a lot worse for Smith and at least the Cavs will have him back when they go on the road for Game 3. The Cavs are also not going to have Kevin Love (shoulder), so expect more from Iman Shumpert, Tristan Thompson, James Jones and Matthew Dellavedova. Thompson and Shumpert are the two most attractive fantasy options.
