Ed Davis hit 5-of-7 shots for 11 points, nine rebounds and two blocks on Wednesday.

Amir Johnson went down with a right ankle injury and Andrea Bargnani is out indefinitely with an elbow injury. We were very high on Davis when Bargnani went down and he fizzled, but could finally be ready to start producing consistently. If you need a big man, he's still worth a serious look - especially if Johnson is going to miss time.

Kawhi Leonard scored 28 points in a 116-103 Game 5 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday as the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead.

Leonard has now scored in double digits in 25 straight playoff games which is the longest streak by a Spur since Tim Duncan's 26 from 2011-2013. He finished 9-of-16 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line (his first FT miss of the series), adding six assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples. The Spurs can close out this series with a Game 6 win in Memphis on Thursday and the Grizzlies still have no answer for Leonard.

Russell Westbrook scored 47 points in a 105-99 Game 5 loss to the Rockets on Tuesday as the Thunder were officially eliminated from the playoffs.

Westbrook played 42 minutes and was a +12 during his time on the court, but once again the Thunder melted down when he went to the bench. He finished 15-of-34 from the field with 11 rebounds, nine assists and seven turnovers. Westy was absolutely gassed by the end of the game and finished just 2-of-12 in the fourth quarter, and he also forced too many perimeter shots -- he hit 5-of-18 shots from beyond the arc. The MVP candidate had an epic season and broke Oscar Robertson's record with 43 triple-doubles, posting averages of 31.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 10.4 assists, 1.7 steals, 2.5 triples and 4.2 turnovers on 42.2 percent shooting.

James Harden hit just 8-of-25 shots, 2-of-13 3-pointers and 16-of-17 free throws for 32 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in Tuesday's 105-99 win over the Thunder to win their first-round series 4-1.

Harden was easily outplayed by Russell Westbrook tonight, who hit 15-of-34 shots and 5-of-18 3-pointers for 47 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, but the Rockets were able to hold on for the win, helped by a 14-4 start to the fourth quarter in a close game. Most of Harden's help came from Lou Williams, Patrick Beverley, Nene and Clint Capela, while Westbrook didn't have the same support system in place, which was the case for most of the season. Harden's Rockets will advance to face the winner of the Spurs-Grizzlies series, and it looks like the Spurs will take a 3-2 lead tonight, as of this writing. Either way, Harden's arch nemesis (Westbrook) is out of the way and he can now focus on trying to lead his team to a championship, without all the triple-double and MVP talk getting in the way of his ultimate goal.

Rajon Rondo (thumb) is "preparing to attempt to play" in Game 5 vs. Boston on Wednesday according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

This is a huge surprise because Rondo was initially ruled out. He was spotted getting up some shots at Tuesday's practice, but we should have a better idea of his status after the morning shootaround. If he plays, he will obviously be limited. Expect Isaiah Canaan to be the starter if Rondo can't get clearance.

David Lee will remain in the starting lineup for Game 5 vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

While Dewayne Dedmon (illness) is available, coach Gregg Popovich said he will stick with the veteran. Lee played 33 minutes in Game 4, but wasn't too effective with eight points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal. With that said, he should fare better tonight and is on the radar in DFS if you're looking for a cheap PF option.

Jusuf Nurkic said he expects his leg to be fully healed in 2-3 months.

Nurkic has plenty of time to get himself ready for the 2017-18 season, and we'll be sure to track his progress every step of the way. The Portland players universally praised Nurkic at their exit interviews for his impressive play as a member of the Trail Blazers, and he could be in a for a big year next season as their full-time starter. Nurkic put in averages of 15.2 points, 7.1 boards, 3.2 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.9 blocks through 20 games with the Blazers, and he said he'll be working on his 3-point shot this offseason, so he could take another big leap in Year-3.

Gordon Hayward (illness) will play without any minutes limit in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Clippers.

Hayward left Sunday's Game 4 after just nine minutes of floor time, but it sounds like he's recovered from the food poisoning episode, so he should be able to get out there for 30-plus minutes tonight. Assuming Hayward gets a full allotment of minutes, that'll likely translate to less run for guys like Joe Ingles and Joe Johnson.

Stephen Curry scored 37 points in a 128-103 win as the Warriors swept the Blazers 4-0 in the first round of the playoffs.

The Warriors buried the Blazers early on with a 45-point first quarter which ties the postseason record and is something that has only been done by three other teams. Curry was completely unconscious tonight, hitting 12-of-20 shots and 6-of-7 from the line with seven 3-pointers, eight assists, seven rebounds and two steals in just 30 minutes. The Warriors will now get 5-7 days of rest and will face the winner of the series between the Jazz and Clippers.

Damian Lillard scored 34 points in a 128-103 blowout loss as the Blazers were swept 4-0 in the first round of the playoffs against the Warriors.

Lillard predicted that the Blazers would win the series in six games, but to his credit, he certainly did his part. He played 42 minutes and shot 12-of-24 from the field with six assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples, outscoring the other four Portland starters 34-15. Lillard finished the regular season as a top-20 player in standard fantasy leagues, averaging 27.0 points, 5.9 assists, 4.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 2.9 triples on 44.4 percent shooting. Barring some roster moves, Portland's core will be intact next season, so expect a similar role for Dame in 2017-18.

Paul Millsap flirted with a triple-double in Monday's Game 4 win over the Wizards, scoring 19 points with nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple.

Markieff Morris called him a "crybaby" after Game 3, so this victory had to feel good and Millsap said on Sunday that he has enjoyed the banter so far. "It’s fun. I’m enjoying this. It’s been an interesting series," he said. "It’s also been one of the most fun series I’ve been a part of. I’m enjoying every minute of it." Millsap has been dominant in this series and was averaging 25.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists in his previous three games, so it's easy to see why Hawks owner Tony Ressler said this week that he will "make every effort imaginable" to re-sign him this summer.

Dennis Schroder scored 18 points to lead the Hawks to a 111-101 Game 4 win over the Wizards on Monday to tie the series 2-2, adding three rebounds, one assist and two triples in 28 minutes.

He picked up three fouls in the first quarter and didn't even play in the second, but he won this game for the Hawks. Schroder notched all 18 of his points after the break including 10 in the fourth quarter, and he hit a few huge daggers down the stretch to put this one out of reach. These playoffs have been his coming out party so far, as he was averaging 25.0 points and 8.0 assists in his previous three games.
