John Salmons hit 7-of-9 shots and four more 3-pointers for 21 points and five assists as the Kings blew out the Magic in Orlando on Wednesday.

Salmons is officially hot, scoring 18, 15 and 21 points in each of his last three games with plenty of rebounds, assists and blocks, and hitting 13 3-pointers over that stretch. He was quoted recently complaining about his role, but we don't see anything for him to complain about after these three games. He's worth a pickup now that he's so hot, and as long as he's starting, there's no reason he can't keep this going.

Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are still game-time decisions to face the Warriors on Monday.

They are both getting treatment and are on track to play right now. Both players also have said they're planning on playing today. We'll look for another update as we approach the 10:30 EDT start time.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is extremely sore on Monday and could be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

The good news is that his knee didn't swell up like it did last time. Parsons had some swelling in his knee following his injury on Apr. 2, so at least this aggravation isn't as bad. If Parsons can't go, the Mavs are really going to have a tough time containing James Harden because of all the fouls he'll draw. Richard Jefferson would start and one would think Al-Farouq Aminu would get more minutes because of the matchup. We'll have an update on Parsons tomorrow.

Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are both game-time decisions against the Warriors for Monday's Game 2.

Holiday will be limited even if he does play in this one, while Evans' availability is unlikely to be determined until right before tipoff. It's hard to envision any scenario where Evans is at 100 percent health, but Evans will do everything he can to get out there. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole is staring at an enormous role with Holiday not his usual self.

Updating a previous item, Chandler Parsons (knee) and Devin Harris (toe) are both questionable for Game 2 vs. Houston.

Parsons admitted to his knee giving out on him during Game 1, something that was pretty noticeable to anyone watching as he battled with a limp for the duration of the contest. Harris, on the other hand, aggravated his toe injury in Game 1 and was forced out of action. If both guys are on the sidelines, it would mean Richard Jefferson is likely to start with increased minutes for Al-Farouq Aminu. As for Harris' absence, that would open the door for more J.J. Barea.

Al Horford (finger) said there is still "some question" as to whether or not he'll be available for Game 2 vs. the Nets.

He's getting "treatment galore," but it would be a major surprise if Horford were forced out of the lineup. Although the big man said it was "very uncomfortable" to shoot with his fingers taped, Horford should be able to get out there so long as he doesn't have any setbacks. It's a situation to monitor closely, and we're putting him on the injury report now that he's said he's unsure of his availability.

Lou Williams was named the NBA's 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year on Monday.

Isaiah Thomas finished second in the voting, and Jamal Crawford rounded out the top three. There was a darkhorse case to be made for Andre Iguodala, but he finished fourth in the voting. It's been a pretty good year for Sweet Lou after being traded for John Salmons and Lucas Nogueira last summer. Williams finished the regular season with averages of 15.5 points, 1.1 steals and 1.9 triples on 40.4 percent shooting.

Al Jefferson said that he intends to remain with the Hornets next season.

Big Al has no desire to opt out, citing "unfinished business" with the Hornets. Jefferson added that he has a desire to lose 20-25 lbs this offseason in order to take some of the pressure off his knees, a move that would benefit both he and his team. Said Jefferson, "I've got to redeem myself."

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) could return for Game 2 vs. Memphis, according to CSNNW.

"Yeah, I'm good," Afflalo said when asked if he'd be ready for the next contest. All the Blazers have said was that he participated in some portions of practice on Sunday, and with players notoriously optimistic about their recoveries, especially in the playoffs, we're going to need to see harder news before declaring AA ready to return.

Kevin Garnett (knee) is going through the work to prepare to play next season.

All signs point to Garnett returning, so we'd be surprised if he didn't work out a new contract with the Wolves to extend his stay as a player-coach before moving into the team's front office.
Apr 20 - 10:43 AM

Mike Conley (foot) admitted that it felt like a golf ball was at the bottom of his shoe in the Game 1 victory over the Blazers.

Conley scored 16 points in 24 minutes on 6-of-11 shooting, but he's nowhere near 100 percent healthy. Despite a successful Game 1 effort, we simply can't be expecting the usual Mike Conley as he deal with this injury. Beno Udrih will be a very important player for Memphis in the postseason.
Apr 20 - 10:21 AM

Paul Pierce admitted his knee injury is still an issue.

Originally injured on February 24 against the Warriors, Pierce said the injury still bothers him currently. However, it doesn't seem to be a serious concern at this point and The Truth looked phenomenal in his first playoff game of 2015. Pierce added that the extra rest toward the end of the regular season was very helpful, and he plans to bring his hyperbaric chamber with him on the road as the Wizards progress through the postseason. He's going to play a major role for Washington as long as they're alive.
