Kris Humphries (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Saturday.

This will be his second missed game after spraining his ankle late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game. Humphries was already clinging to life in standard leagues, so owners will be hard-pressed to keep him on their roster. Andray Blatche is coming off a double-double on Friday and should be useful tonight.

Domantas Sabonis had another breakout game on Wednesday with a playoff career-high 22 points on 8-of-12 field goals and 6-of-8 free throws, adding five boards, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

Sabonis played an expanded role on Sunday due to Myles Turner's foul trouble, and that 19-point game seems to have bolstered his role and confidence. Turner was in foul trouble again tonight and Sabonis wound up tying the game with an elbow jumper down the stretch, but Indy couldn't complete the comeback and now trails 3-2 in the series. Given his excellent play the past two games, it makes sense to target Sabonis in DFS unless his price spikes in the next 48 hours.

Victor Oladipo struggled during Game 5 on Wednesday, shooting 2-of-15 from the field for 12 points, 12 rebounds, four assists and one steal.

The Pacers and Cavs series has the slowest pace in the postseason, and the Cavs' defense has throttled Oladipo lately -- since Game 3 he's a combined 12-of-50 from the field (24.0 percent). Poor shot selection has plagued him and it'll be interesting to see what coach Nate McMillan draws up to get his star guard going in a critical Game 6 at home on Friday. If you're looking for a silver lining, the boards tied Oladipo's season high and the turnovers were his fewest of the postseason.

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 32 points during Toronto's Game 5 win on Wednesday, making 12-of-24 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in 39 minutes of action.

"That's one reason why you play as hard as you do for 82 games, to get homecourt advantage," coach Dwane Casey said before the game. His team came through with a clutch performance in the fourth quarter, but it was DeRozan's aggressive scoring that kept them close most of the game -- he scored 11 straight points for Toronto in the first quarter, and finished 3-of-4 from downtown with five assists and two rebounds. It'll be hard to fade him for DFS purposes during Game 6 on Friday.

John Wall had 26 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and one steal in a losing effort on Wednesday, leaving the Wizards on the brink of elimination.

Wall did commit seven turnovers, but he shot 10-of-21 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, and simply didn't get much help from his teammates. He said before the game that he's trying to "be aggressive" offensively, while also "trying to keep [Bradley Beal] going and play my game. That gets my teammates involved." Everyone else shot 27-of-69 tonight (39.1%), and Washington now needs to defend their home court on Friday to force a Game 7.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Coach Dwane Casey said the medical people are not ready to put FVV back out there, so he may need to miss additional time. With him out, Delon Wright should get a chance to bounce back after a drop in production in D.C. He was terrific in the last two home games and should see minutes in the mid 20s.
Apr 25 - 5:24 PM

George Hill (back spasms) will not play in Game 5 vs. the Pacers, and Jose Calderon will get another start.

It'll be Hill's second game out of the lineup and his durability continues to hold him back. For tonight, Calderon is likely looking at around 20 minutes while J.R. Smith and Jordan Clarkson should see additional time. Smith is a DFS punt option while Clarkson and Calderon are possible tourney plays.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said that Tyus Jones (right knee soreness) participated in shootaround and will "hopefully" be available to play in Game 5 Wednesday night vs. Houston.

Jones only logged seven minutes in Game 3 and was ruled out of Game 4 on Monday. "I think he’s feeling better," said Thibs after shootaround. "He will go through [preagme] warmups tonight. Hopefully, he’ll be available." Derrick Rose will continue to see extended minutes if Jones is ruled out. Over the first four games of the series, Rose is averaging 14.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 23.7 minutes per contest.

The Warriors didn't have Stephen Curry, but they did have Kevin Durant (25 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, a steal, 2 blocks and a 3-pointer), Klay Thompson (24 points, 5 boards, 4 assists, a 3-pointer) and Draymond Green (17 points, 19 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 3-pointers) to beat the Spurs 99-91 in Tuesday's Game 5, eliminating San Antonio from the postseason.

Durant hit a pair of free throws and a clutch jumper to halt a LaMarcus Aldridge late run that saw the Spurs cut GSW's lead to just two points with 57 seconds left in the game, and scored 10 of 12 GSW points in a late fourth quarter run that iced the game. Green's 19 rebounds were a career playoff high and Durant hit 35-of-37 free throws in the series and was 8-of-8 tonight. The Warriors will get Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday and the Pelicans in Round 2, which should be a blast to watch.
Apr 25 - 1:17 AM

J.J. Redick hit 6-of-13 shots, five 3-pointers and 10-of-10 free throws on his way to 27 points, two assists and nothing else in Tuesday's 104-91 win, helping the Sixers close out their series against the Heat 4-1.

With guys like Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli doing the dirty work, the Sixers are quite content to let Redick bomb away from downtown and stay out of the way. His 27 points led the team tonight and he scored at least 24 points in three of the five games in this series. Redick and the Sixers will get the winner of the Bucks-Celtics series next.
Apr 24 - 10:57 PM

Joel Embiid had 19 points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and a block in 29 minutes as the Sixers beat the Heat 104-91 in Tuesday's Game 5, winning the series by a count of 4-1.

This is the Sixers' first trip to the second round since 2012 and Embiid's strong play is a big reason why the Sixers might not only win the East, but might even have a chance to win the entire shebang this year. Embiid has been back for three games since his orbital injury and is averaging 18.7 points, 10.3 boards, 3.0 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.0 3-pointers since returning. The Sixers will get the winner of the Celtics-Bucks series in the semis and the Celtics currently hold a 3-2 advantage in that one.
Apr 24 - 10:52 PM

Josh Richardson (shoulder) is starting Game 5 on Tuesday.

He made it through the pre-game warmups without any setbacks and just received clearance from the training staff. With Miami's season on the line, we wouldn't expect Richardson to have restrictions unless his shoulder acts up.
