Latest Headlines

O.J. Mayo tweaked his ankle during Monday's practice, but the injury is "not seen as a major issue."

Presumably that means Mayo will be ready to play on Wednesday, but we should have at least one more substantial update after Tuesday's practice. He came in with February averages of 17.3 points on 46.0 percent FGs, 1.3 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.5 turnovers.

Doc Rivers confirmed that Austin Rivers (hamstring) will play with a minutes limit in Game 5 against the Jazz on Tuesday.

Rivers hasn't taken the court since March 29, so his minutes will likely be in the lower-20s on Tuesday night. Raymond Felton will likely lose some minutes with Rivers back in the rotation.
Apr 24 - 5:15 PM

Khris Middleton (illness) is currently going through his pregame routine.

Middleton sat out shootaround with the illness, but he's fully expected to play in Game 5 tonight. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.

James Harden (ankle) said that he will play in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Thunder.

"Got some treatment and I'll be ready to go tomorrow," Harden said before Monday's practice. "It's the playoffs, everybody is banged up so you just got to find a way to fight through it and find a way to help your teammates win games. For me, it's not necessarily scoring, I don't have to score a certain amount of points as long as I'm making the right plays and guys are getting shots everybody is in a good rhythm that's all that matters."

Rajon Rondo (thumb) will not play in Game 5 against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Rondo has shed his cast, and Fred Hoiberg hasn't yet ruled him out for the series, but he won't be taking the court on Wednesday night. Isaiah Canaan will get the start in Game 5, and he'll be someone to consider in DFS.
Apr 24 - 3:58 PM

Isaiah Canaan will replace Jerian Grant in the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.

Grant wasn't giving Chicago anything as their starting point guard, so he might fall out of the rotation entirely on Wednesday night. As for Canaan, he looked pretty good through 34 minutes on Sunday, posting 13 points, three triples, three dimes, two boards and two steals, so he might be someone to consider as a potential punt play in daily leagues.
Apr 24 - 3:49 PM

Shaun Livingston (hand) and Matt Barnes (ankle) went through shootaround, but both remain questionable to play Monday vs. Portland.

Livingston has had a full seven days to rest up his bruised hand, so he has to be close to getting back to the court. Barnes also should be close after spending a little over two weeks on the sidelines, and if both these guys are able to get back to the floor tonight, there will be fewer minutes available for Patrick McCaw and Ian Clark. Stay tuned.
Apr 24 - 2:27 PM

Kevin Durant (calf) participated at shootaround, but he remains questionable to play in Monday's Game 4 against the Trail Blazers.

Durant has had a little more than a week to rest up his strained calf, but with the Dubs already up 3-0 in the series, they have the luxury of exercising some extreme caution with KD. In other words, if there's any concern at all about him suffering a setback, you can bet he won't be taking the court tonight, although it is a positive sign to see him go through shootaround. Check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
Apr 24 - 2:23 PM

Austin Rivers (hamstring) is expected to play in Game 5 vs. the Jazz on Tuesday.

This is huge for the Clippers because Rivers is one of their best perimeter defenders and could potentially move into the starting lineup. He also gives them more flexibility to use smaller lineups. Rivers has been out for weeks and will likely have restrictions, so he will be tough to trust right out of the gate.
Apr 24 - 1:06 PM

Otto Porter (neck) will play in Game 4 vs. the Hawks on Monday.

He was listed as probable after going through Sunday's practice, and the Wizards cleared him to play after he made it through the Monday morning shootaround. Porter has struggled during the postseason with averages of 7.0 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.7 3-pointers, but he hasn't really looked like himself for a couple months now.
Apr 24 - 11:41 AM

Kyle Lowry (back) is expected to play in Game 5 vs. the Bucks on Monday.

Lowry arrived to shootaround with some stiffness in his back, so the Raptors gave him some treatment and sent him home instead of having him go through practice. It sounds like he's fully expected to play, but there's now some added risk if you're planning on using him in DFS. We'll be on the lookout for more updates as we approach the 7:00 ET tip-off. If he's unable to play, Cory Joseph and Delon Wright will pick up minutes, while DeMar DeRozan would see a huge bump in usage.
Apr 24 - 11:18 AM

Rudy Gobert (knee) didn't miss a shot during his return on Sunday, going 6-of-6 from the field for 15 points, 13 rebounds, two blocks and one assist as the Jazz defeated the visiting Clippers in Game 4.

Gobert made a surprisingly quick return from a hyperextension and bone bruise in his left knee, running and jumping without any apparent limitations. Quin Snyder said before the game that Gobert's minutes would be dictated by fatigue, but he was almost certainly on a 24-minute limit since he sat out down the stretch of a tight playoff game. Hopefully his minutes will increase during a crucial game in L.A. on Tuesday.
