George Karl hopes that Ty Lawson (heel) can return "in a couple weeks."

This is not the update Lawson's owners were hoping for. "I have a feeling that he had somewhat of a [partial] tear in his plantar fasciitis and that’s untreatable," Karl said. "But popping it creates a situation where now once the soreness goes away, he probably should be able to be pain-free." Owners in standard leagues have little choice but to cut him, while Andre Miller will get all the minutes he can handle at PG.

Klay Thompson scored 23 points with four rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes against the Rockets in a Game 5 loss on Thursday.

He was off in the first with just seven points, but Thompson was defending well and looked healthy. He was doing a little more offensively than usual, and that may have to continue because of how the Rockets seem to have figured out the GSW offense.

Chris Paul hurt his hamstring late in the fourth quarter on Thursday and did not return.

This is not good. Paul was grabbing his right hammy after he fell down, but he had a wrap over his left hammy on the bench. His left hamstring was the bad one this season and CP3 looked upset on the bench, so this is troubling news and could keep him out. Worst yet, CP3 saved the day with a strong second half, finishing with 20 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and four 3-pointers. Expect several updates in the next day.

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney will start again for Thursday's Game 5.

Coach Steve Kerr doesn't hit the panic button and will roll with this unit again. It did not work out for the Warriors in Game 4 and burned them in the fourth, but Looney is the most familiar among the available players with the four All-Stars with his 40 minutes in that five-man unit during this series. Kerr did hint he'll tweak his rotation, so we could see more Jordan Bell or even Quinn Cook over Nick Young.

Klay Thompson (knee) will play against the Rockets on Thursday.

No surprise here after coach Steve Kerr said Klay was moving around well on Wednesday. Thompson did also play through his knee injury on Tuesday and there was never really much concern he'd even be limited, especially considering Klay's durability. He'll likely have to play a ton of minutes with Andre Iguodala (leg) out for this one.

Andre Iguodala (leg) has been ruled out for Game 5 against the Rockets on Thursday.

He gets ruled out before warmups, which is potentially bad news for Game 6, as well. The Warriors are really short on wings and they may have to roll with Shaun Livingston and Nick Young to help more. Plus, we'll almost certainly see Jordan Bell, who may get 20 minutes. Kevon Looney figures to start and get minutes in the 20s, but coach Steve Kerr could change that.

Nikola Jokic appears to have lost weight already this offseason, and he will not play in international basketball this summer.

There's a picture of Jokic in the column link below. Additionally from Mile High Sports, Jokic has not started his offseason workout regiment, but he will in the next 10 days or so. Jokic's summer will be an interesting one with him being in line for an extension. Regardless, he'll be a top-eight pick in standard fantasy drafts next year.

Damian Lillard, James Harden, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis were named to the 2017-18 All-NBA First Team.

Harden, LeBron and AD were absolute locks to make the First Team with Harden and LeBron being unanimous, but Dame over Russell Westbrook and KD getting in there over someone like Giannis Antetokounmpo were the questions we needed answered today. Lillard's Blazers held the No. 3 see in the Western Conference, which no doubt affected the voters. Lillard did have a wonderful year with a career high in dimes at 6.6 and with his 59.4 TS%. Dame Dolla will be going platinum in fantasy drafts as a top-eight pick next year.

Russell Westbrook, DeMar DeRozan, Giannis Antetokounmpo, LaMarcus Aldridge and Joel Embiid made the 2017-18 All-NBA Second Team.

After just 31 games in his rookie season, The Process doubled that with 63 games, averaging 22.9 points, 11.0 boards, 3.2 dimes, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 treys in 30.3 minutes per game. Westbrook somewhat surprisingly doesn't get on the First Team despite how he averaged a triple-double on the year after his MVP season with the same feat. Giannis also made his second All-NBA Team after last season and he'll have a better shot to be First Team next year while LMA earned his fifth All-NBA nod and DeMar added his second in his career.

Stephen Curry, Victor Oladipo, Jimmy Butler, Paul George and Karl-Anthony Towns were named to the 2017-18 All-NBA Third Team.

Both KAT and Oladipo earn their first All-NBA honors with Jimmy Butler getting his second of his career, which may be a slight surprise due to Butler not hitting 60 games and his team barely making the postseason. Butler did finish with 54 points in the voting, which tied Chris Paul and was just over Rudy Gobert (51), but those two played different positions to keep them off the All-NBA squads. Curry did lead the Third Team with 164 points, which put him just behind DeMar DeRozan (165) on the second team. PG-13 also picked up his fourth All-NBA nod.

Andre Iguodala was seen shooting around but is still a game-time decision for Game 5 in Houston on Thursday.

When asked about Iggy's status Steve Kerr said, "Incremental progress. Still a game-time decision." Iguodala was out for Game 4 and it clearly had an impact on the Warriors as they lost their first home game since the 2016 NBA Finals. It'll be a tough test to go without him on the road if he's sidelined for Game 5.
May 24 - 1:45 PM

LeBron James scored 26 points (11-of-22 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs) with 10 rebounds and five assists, but also had six turnovers in the Cavaliers 96-83 Game 5 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

This was a forgettable game by LeBron's standards, the game was never really close or highly competitive after the first quarter and he seemed to lack his normal fire. Head coach Ty Lue said about LeBron, "He looked a little tired to me, yes." The King will have to shake off his lack of energy or his seven-year Finals streak will come to an end. Expect LeBron to bring it and have one of his signature elimination games on Friday.
