A source tells Frank Isola of the New York Daily News the NBA has been informed Carmelo Anthony (arm) intends to play in Sunday's All-Star Game.

Anthony suffered was he called a "contusion on his biceps" during Wednesday's game and said it bothered him for the whole game while occasionally causing "dead arm." Anthony isn't scheduled to take part in any other events this weekend besides the game, so he should have plenty of time to heal in time for the main attraction Sunday. Also, if Melo is healthy enough to play Sunday, he should be good to go for the Knicks and fantasy owners after the break.

Tyler Zeller is getting the start for John Henson against the Celtics for Game 3 on Friday.

Coach Joe Prunty doesn't get cute here to start this game off, but the Bucks will certainly be using more Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. Jabari Parker should benefit most from no Henson while Malcolm Brogdon could see more run as well. Zeller is just a lukewarm punt play in DFS.

John Henson (back) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

That's bad news for the Bucks because Henson has been solid and he's also been in six of the seven most-used lineups in this series. With him out, that should mean Tyler Zeller gets a bump in minutes, but the Bucks would almost certainly be looking to run out more lineups with Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. That should open up minutes for Jabari Parker.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) will not play on Friday against the Wizards for Game 3.

He hasn't been able to get over his shoulder injury and he played just three minutes in Game 2. Simply put, Delon Wright is now in a big spot after two outstanding games off the bench. Wright will likely play the vast majority of the fourth and he'll guard John Wall. Get Wright in your DFS lineups.
Apr 20 - 6:40 PM

Marcin Gortat will start against the Raptors for Game 3 on Friday.

There was a lot of talk of Mike Scott getting the start because of how well he's shot the ball, but coach Scott Brooks said he's still confident with his first unit. Plus, Gortat is among the league leaders for screen assists this season while he is tied with Clint Capela for the lead in screen assists per game this postseason, so taking him out would put more pressure on John Wall. Still, Gortat will be on a short leash today, so he's a risky DFS play.

Stephen Curry (knee) was examined on Friday and will be re-evaluated again in one week.

He will take part in what the team is calling "modified team practices" on Saturday and he'll increase the intensity of his on-court rehab. Curry is already starting to do some lateral movements and is getting some shots up with the training staff. It doesn't sound like he'll be ready for Game 1 against the Pelicans, but he should be back at some point in that series.

Moe Harkless (left knee) and Evan Turner (right toe) are both questionable for Game 4 against the Pelicans on Saturday.

Turner looked to have gone through portions of practice on Friday, so he may have a shot to play after sitting out for Game 3. The Blazers are going to need help on offense from players not named Damian Lillard because Dame continues to get trapped. Turner could be a DFS play, but not being 100 percent makes him risky.

Stephen Curry (left knee) is "still not close to playing," according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

There was video footage released on Thursday of Curry doing full-court work; however, Thompson's sources tell him that Curry "isn't in the final stages of his rehabilitation." Steph will be re-evaluated on Friday, so we should have an update on his status soon. It now seems possible that Curry may miss the start of the second round, especially if both the Warriors and the Pelicans sweep the Spurs and Blazers, respectively.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Ryan Anderson (ankle) was probable for Game 3 Saturday night vs. the Wolves.

Anderson initially injured his ankle back on April 3rd. It has cost him the final four games of the regular season and Games 1 and 2 in Houston's first-round matchup vs. Minnesota. Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) is also sidelined, but the Rockets have still comfortably taken care of the Wolves in the first two games of the series. Assuming Anderson is cleared to play on Saturday, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green will see their minutes scaled back.
Apr 20 - 12:36 PM

John Henson (back soreness) is doubtful for Friday's Game 3 vs. Boston.

This is the first we've heard a back issue for Henson. He logged over 37 minutes in each of the first two games of this series, averaging 9.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. The Bucks will lose their best rim protector if Henson is unable to suit up on Friday night. Thon Maker and Tyler Zeller would see a significant uptick in minutes in his absence. Milwaukee might also choose to go small, and give Jabari Parker additional playing time.
Apr 20 - 10:49 AM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Game 3 Friday vs. the Wizards.

VanVleet returned to the Raps lineup for Game 2 on Tuesday, but logged just three minutes. Coach Dwane Casey said he "just wasn't' ready." However, FVV told reporters on Thursday that he plans to play in Game 3. "You're gonna have to cut my arm off to get me to not feel like I can play," VanVleet said. C.J. Miles and Delon Wright have played very well off the bench, so Toronto hasn't missed VanVleet yet. We should have an update on his status after Friday's shootaround.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points during a 110-97 win over the Spurs on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He did tweak his left ankle as he was going for loose ball and he did not return. Although, he didn't have a bad limp and the Warriors had the game in hand. Ankle injuries have been a major problem for the Warriors this year, but for now this one doesn't sound serious. As for the Warriors team, they've now won 18 straight Western Conference games and will go for the sweep on Sunday.
