Dion Waiters (ankle) will practice on Monday and will play on Tuesday against the Raptors, but Byron Scott wouldn't commit to starting him.

C.J. Miles has been holding down the shooting guard spot of late with Waiters sidelined, averaging 22.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and an unbelievable 4.3 3-pointers. Byron Scott doesn't want to shake Miles' newly found confidence, and the Cavs could work Waiters in slowly following an eight-game absence.

Damian Lillard (chest cold) looked much better in Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors, scoring 25 points on 8-of-20 shooting with six assists, four boards, two steals and six 3-pointers.

He took over the game in the third quarter with 17 points, but cooled off down the stretch and failed to score in the fourth quarter. To be fair, the whole Portland team cooled off as they scored just 12 points in the fourth compared to 34 by Golden State. The Blazers have lost the first two games but will try to get back on track with the series shifting to Portland for Game 3 on Saturday.

Klay Thompson scored 27 points on 7-of-20 shooting to lead the Warriors to a 110-99 win over the Blazers in Game 2, giving Golden State a 2-0 series lead.

He also added three boards, three assists and five 3-pointers, with 20 of his points coming in the second half. Thompson is really stepping up in the absence of Stephen Curry (knee) and was coming off a personal playoff-high of 37 points in Game 1. The Warriors are in firm control of this series, so they may be more cautious with Curry's return which could allow Thompson to post some monster numbers moving forward.

Hassan Whiteside played through a right knee strain in Tuesday's Game 1 win over the Raptors, scoring nine points (3-of-7 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs) with 17 rebounds, two steals and one block in 39 minutes.

The injury initially looked really bad with his knee bending under his body as he collapsed to the floor, but he was only in the locker room for a couple minutes before returning to action. The fact that he played close to 40 minutes is encouraging and it didn't look like he was limited, but don't be surprised if he sits out of practice on Wednesday as a precaution. He should be fine for Game 2 on Thursday.

Jonas Valanciunas was dominant vs. the Heat on Tuesday with 24 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 41 minutes.

J-Val was the best player for the Raptors tonight and it wasn't close either. Valanciunas usually only sees around 26 minutes per game, but coach Dwane Casey couldn't take him off the floor tonight and he was also giving Hassan Whiteside some problems down low. Bismack Biyombo was invisible tonight with three rebounds in 11 minutes.
May 4 - 12:06 AM

Kyle Lowry scored just seven points on 3-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's 102-96 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 1.

He did hit a halfcourt buzzer beater to send the game to overtime, but other than that Lowry was pretty awful tonight. He didn't have a single point at halftime and finished the game with six assists, four boards, three steals and three turnovers in 43 minutes. Lowry didn't talk to reporters after the game because he immediately went to the practice court to get up some extra shots, so hopefully he will bounce back in Game 2 on Thursday.
May 3 - 11:50 PM

Goran Dragic led the Heat to a 102-96 overtime win in Game 1 vs. the Raptors on Tuesday, scoring 26 points on 10-of-20 shooting.

He was coming in hot with 25 points in Game 7 vs. the Pacers on Sunday, so the Raptors are going to have their hands full if Dragic stays this hot. He added six boards, two assists and three 3-pointers with three turnovers in 41 minutes. Game 2 will be in Toronto on Thursday.
May 3 - 11:10 PM

Norman Powell will move into the starting lineup for Game 1 vs. the Heat on Tuesday, sending Patrick Patterson to the bench.

The Heat utilize a small-ball lineup with Luol Deng at the four, so the Raptors will slide DeMarre Carroll over to power forward. Powell only averaged 18.0 minutes per game in round one vs. the Pacers, but he should see a lot more minutes in this series and he's definitely earned them too. Patterson should still be the first big off the bench.
May 3 - 7:23 PM

Warriors' GM Bob Myers said that Stephen Curry (knee) could return for Saturday's Game 3 or Monday's Game 4.

"I know everybody wants to know is it going to be Saturday, is it going to be Monday?" said Meyers of Curry's timetable. "It's in that range, but it's hard to say. But those games [3 and 4] are so close together... He's got to play a little bit of 3-on-3 or 5-on-5. He hasn't done any of that stuff yet." Steve Kerr is hopeful that Curry can go through a full scrimmage on Thursday, and if he can get through that scrimmage, it sounds like he has a decent chance of suiting up for Game 3. Stay tuned.
May 3 - 6:24 PM

Hassan Whiteside said that his bruised right thigh is at about 85 percent, but he has no intention of missing any time with the injury.

"It's not 100 percent, but I'm going to keep playing," said Whiteside. The thigh injury didn't appear to limit him much during Sunday's blowout win over the Hornets, and he should be receiving a full complement of minutes for Tuesday's Game 1 against the Raptors. He's one of the better centers to target in DFS.
May 3 - 2:20 PM

Russell Westbrook scored a team-high 29 points during a 98-97 Game 2 victory over the Spurs on Monday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

This game had a wild finish with Dion Waiters elbowing Manu Ginobili on an inbound pass. Before that, Westbrook picked up a lot easier buckets with the Thunder scoring 21 points in fast break -- they only had 12 in the 124-92 Game 1 loss. Westbrook didn't have to deal with Kawhi Leonard as much as Game 1, so that was huge for him. Coach Gregg Popovich will probably try to put Kawhi on Westy more in Game 3 on Friday.
May 3 - 12:51 AM

Kevin Durant scored 28 points in 42 minutes against the Spurs during a Game 1 win on Monday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

He was much better in this game even though Kawhi Leonard guarded him more in this game than on Saturday. Durant and Westbrook scored 57 of the 98 points and handed out 14 of the 16 assists in this game. This series is off until Friday, so the Thunder will have some confidence after they were blown out in Game 1.
