Updating a previous item, Stephen Curry said his left ankle swelled up two nights ago and he isn't sure he can play in Game 3 Friday.

He did not practice on Thursday and the Warriors are wisely going to take it easy on the league's best shooter. During the regular season, Curry 45.3 percent from downtown and with 82.7 percent of his threes not coming from the corner, so the Nuggets will need to do a better job of keeping a body on him throughout the game. We'd expect him to play on Friday.

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) has no minute-limit and coach Dwane Casey hopes to play him early in the game.

"We hope to get him in, find him some minutes and get his feet wet," Casey said. "It might be a shock to his lungs." Casey doesn't like JV matching up vs. Channing Frye and the Cavs' second unit, but isn't ready to start him ahead of Bismack Biyombo, given the Raptors' recent success. Unfortunately for DFS purposes, Biyombo's playing time should take a hit with Valanciunas in the mix.

Draymond Green will not be suspended for tripping Enes Kanter during Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

Green is just one flagrant foul away from a suspension, but the league has reportedly decided not to upgrade his foul on Kanter to a flagrant 1 foul, meaning he's in the clear for Thursday's Game 5 against OKC. Green has been a shell of himself over the past two games, and he knows that he'll need to come with a much stronger effort during Game 5 if the Dubs hope to send the series back to OKC for a Game 6.

Joakim Noah has reportedly been telling his Chicago teammates that he's done with the organization and will be looking to go elsewhere as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Noah reportedly has no faith in Bulls' GM Gar Forman being able to put the pieces together to turn the Chicago franchise around, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of offers he can secure on the open market after his previous two seasons have been cut short due to injury. Noah will likely sign a one-year "show-me" deal in order to reestablish his value as a free agent, but the injury concerns will make him a tough guy to target prior to the final few rounds on draft day.

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) said that he's "ready to go" for Wednesday's Game 5 in Cleveland.

"I'm ready to go," said Valanciunas. "Percentage wise? I don't know. My ankle doesn't say the percentage." Valanciunas will again be available to play on Wednesday, but Cavs' head coach Tyronn Lue implied that they'll go with a healthy heaping of Channing Frye at the five-spot for Game 5, which Dwane Casey has acknowledged is a difficult matchup for JV. If Valanciunas does take the court Wednesday night, it'll likely be in a limited capacity, so he's still not that great of a fantasy option.

Stephen Curry (knee) is playing "at 70 percent, at best," according to a source of Adrian Wojnarowski.

While unnamed sources dispute the health of Curry's knee, you won't hear Curry, nor head coach Steve Kerr making any excuses. Curry said he was "fine" after Game 4's loss, and Kerr stated that he's "not injured," but Curry's lack of explosion and inability to take advantage of the bigs when they switch on him tells a bit of a different story. To be clear, Curry is in zero danger of spending any time on the sidelines, and the Dubs will need him to look more like MVP-Curry if they hope to secure a Game 5 win when they return to their home court on Thursday.

Stephen Curry struggled in Tuesday's 118-94 loss in Game 4, scoring 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting.

He was also just 2-of-10 from beyond the arc with six turnovers, adding five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes. As much as Curry struggled, coach Steve Kerr made it clear after the game that the MVP is not injured. "Steph Curry is not injured," Kerr said. "He just had a lousy night. It happens." With Golden State trailing 3-1, they will need a much better effort from Curry for the Warriors to get back in this series.
May 25 - 12:19 AM

Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday.
May 25 - 12:05 AM

Kevin Durant scored 26 points on 8-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

The Thunder scored 72 points in the first half for the second straight game and the Warriors weren't able to recover. As for Durant, he had an incredible line with 11 rebounds, four assists, four steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer, though he did have a few turnovers. This was his second straight game with three blocks and his defense has been on full display in this series. The Thunder could advance to the NBA Finals with a win on Thursday in Game 5 as the series shifts back to Golden State.
May 24 - 11:52 PM

Russell Westbrook triple-doubled with 36 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists to lead the Thunder to a 118-94 win in Game 4.

This gives the Thunder a commanding 3-1 series lead over the defending champs. Westbrook was dominant tonight, shooting 12-of-27 from the field and 8-of-8 from the line while adding four steals and four treys in 41 minutes. As good as he was on offense, Westbrook also held Stephen Curry in check, limiting the MVP to 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting. For what it's worth, teams that take a 3-1 series lead in the conference finals are 37-2 in NBA history.
May 24 - 11:40 PM

Kyle Lowry was outstanding during a 105-99 win over the Cavs in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

He was on fire early with 16 points on 100.0 effective field goal percentage to kick this game off. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored a combined 67 points in their best combined scoring effort this postseason. To nobody's surprise, Raptors continue to go as Lowry goes in the postseason. During wins, he has a 56.9 true shooting percentage and a 2.5 assist:turnover ratio. In the losses, those numbers are 38.9 and 1.6, respectively. The Cavs should be doing all they can to stop Lowry.
May 24 - 12:06 AM

Bismack Biyombo was terrific yet again during a win over the Cavs on Monday, finishing with five points, 14 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 42 minutes.

His motor was out of control with some very good perimeter defense while he was still able to grab 11 defensive rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) didn't play in this game, but he might have a better chance on Wednesday. If the Raptors can continue to use him like this, Biyombo might be too valuable to lose any minutes to JV. Biyombo has made himself some serious money in the past two games.
