Jrue Holiday has a "slight" groin strain, but he is expected to play on Friday.

Holiday's groin strain wasn't previously reported, so we're assuming the injury isn't overly serious. Check back for confirmation that he'll be in the lineup, but it sounds like he will be.

Jeff Teague handed out a playoff career-high 14 assists against the Cavs on Friday, adding 19 points, one rebound, one turnover and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

When the game was decided, Teague gave LeBron James an unnecessary shove and the league could be looking at this. His lone turnover was a costly one in the last minute of the game, so it wasn't a great finish. Teague is turning in a decent postseason, averaging 15.1 points, 2.0 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.8 treys in his previous eight games. He should have big minutes in Game 4, but there's always going to be risk in case Dennis Schroder takes minutes from him.

The Hawks are starting Thabo Sefolosha in place of Kyle Korver for Game 3 against the Cavs on Friday.

It's a last-second move for the Hawks to try and get bigger bodies out there against LeBron James. Sefolosha should take some minutes away from Korver here, but he's still very risky to use in DFS. Korver loses a lot of appeal, as well.

The Jazz announced on Friday that they have officially signed head coach Quin Snyder to a long-term contract extension.

"We have continued to take significant steps as a team under Quin’s direction," Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey said. "His work ethic, basketball intelligence and ability to connect with and develop our players make him the ideal head coach of the Jazz." Snyder will be entering his third season as the head coach of the Jazz and will look to get his promising young team into the postseason.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on the Dan Patrick Show that Stephen Curry (knee) will not play in Game 3 vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

Kerr added that Curry has a "slight chance" of playing in Game 4 on Monday, but keep in mind that the Warriors are probably just being cautious since they have a 2-0 series lead. Most reports seem to indicate that Curry is making excellent progress, but the next step for him is to participate in some 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 work. Shaun Livingston will start at point guard again on Saturday. We might get another update this afternoon.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Spurs will chase Kevin Durant in free agency this summer.

Why wouldn't they? According to Stein's sources, the Spurs are just as "intrigued" as Golden State by the thought of adding KD to the mix. A trio of Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Durant would be a frightening sight for opposing teams, but Durant is probably more focused on what he needs to do in Game 3 on Friday vs. San Antonio at the moment.

John Wall's (knee surgeries) status for training camp is currently unknown.

He obviously won't play for Team USA this summer, but he is expected to be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season. The surgery on Wall's right knee is reportedly pretty minor and routine, but the operation on his left knee in which he had calcium deposits removed would have sidelined him for months if he underwent the procedure during the season. Fantasy owners would feel a lot more confident about drafting him if he's ready in time for camp, but we'll be tracking his progress closely.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said he wants to get Jonas Valanciunas more touches.

"We would [have liked to get him more touches]," Casey said after Game 2. "I think once we do go into him he’s done a decent job, but [Hassan] Whiteside is a force down there and they’re doing a good job digging, pushing him off his sweet spot. We can find more touches for him down there but I think he’s doing a heckuva job, screening, rolling, in-between game is probably what it’s going to be." J-Val was 7-of-9 from in Game 2 and grabbed six offensive boards, so expect the Raptors to utilize him more in this series moving forward.

Heat reporter Ira Winderman told 560 WQAM that he doesn't believe Chris Bosh (blood clots) will play in the NBA again.

Bosh was trying to get clearance from doctors to return to the Heat for the playoffs and even asked the NBPA to step in, but the Heat announced on Wednesday that he has been ruled out for the rest of the postseason. There was simply too much risk for Bosh to return this season, but to be clear his status for the 2016-17 season has yet to be determined.

Jonas Valanciunas was the hero during a 96-92 overtime Game 2 win over the Heat on Thursday, scoring 15 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block in 38 minutes.

He was 7-of-9 from the field and pulled down six offensive rebounds. Valanciunas only has a 21.1 usage rate with a very good 59.3 true shooting percentage in the postseason, so the Raptors should be finding ways to get him more shots. He is feasting in the paint with 68.7 percent of his shots coming from within three feet. Coach Dwane Casey praised him after the game, so maybe the Raptors make him more of an offensive focal point.

DeMarre Carroll scored 21 points with five rebounds, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

The scoring output ties his best for the season. While Carroll's offense was great, his defense wasn't quite up to his high standards. He's now played at least 37 minutes in three straight games and seems locked in as the main option at power forward now in this series. He's still a nice value play in DFS.

LSU forward Ben Simmons has chosen not to attend the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago.

The event will be held May 11-15 and Simmons is the highest-profile player to skip it, presumably because the possible No. 1 pick feels he'd have little to gain by submitting to a thorough physical and on-court scrutiny. Simmons averaged 19.2 points, 11.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.8 blocks for LSU last season, and he'll be an interesting gamble in fantasy drafts.
