Tony Parker breezed past the Lakers' make-shift starting backcourt for 23 points, three rebounds, four assists, two steals and zero turnovers on 9-of-16 shooting in just 26 minutes of Sunday's 103-82 blowout win over the Lakers to complete the first-round sweep.

Parker came in dealing with a scratched eye, but it clearly didn't bother him tonight. Parker had a great series against inferior competition, and the Spurs will start preparing for Round 2, where they'll meet the winner of the Warriors-Nuggets series. Parker's work will be cut out for him in the next series, where he'll either have to match up against Stephen Curry or Ty Lawson, as opposed to a one-legged Steve Nash, Andrew Goudelock and Darius Morris.

Giannis Antetokounmpo will return to Milwaukee's starting lineup on Saturday, sending Jerryd Bayless to the bench.

Jason Kidd unexpectedly benched Antetokounmpo on Friday, playing him 15 minutes in a blowout defeat vs. the Raptors. Giannis may still be dealing with a minor ankle injury but he's worth deploying now that he's reclaimed his spot in the Bucks' starting lineup.

Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

The Spurs are without a backup point guard, but Manu Ginobili should help out there. That should also open up some minutes on the wing for Danny Green and Austin Daye. Joseph's injury doesn't sound serious.

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play against the Mavericks on Saturday and has no timetable to return.

He was basically doubtful and he's still not well enough to play. Howard had plasma rich platelet treatment this week, but he still hasn't had a full workload at practice. Tarik Black played well on Wednesday and will get the start again. Kostas Papanikolaou will also benefit. Howard owners can push the panic button, but cutting him is not an option.

An MRI confirmed Tobias Harris (right calf) is dealing with a strain and he is is day-to-day.

There are no specifics yet, but based on the information it sounds like a Grade I strain for Harris. Players tend to miss a day or two, but there are instances when it'll take a week to recover. His owners should bench him for now and we should have an update before Monday. Basically the entire rotation benefits here.
Nov 22 - 6:13 PM

Evan Fournier will start next to Victor Oladipo, Willie Green, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic on Saturday against the Heat.

The Magic are really going tiny here without Tobias Harris (calf) and it's just a testament to how coach Jacque Vaughn sees Fournier as the French version of a Swiss army knife. Fournier should be owned in all standard leagues until he cools off, which may not even happen this season.
Nov 22 - 5:57 PM

Jose Calderon will be in the starting lineup against the Sixers on Saturday.

There is no official minute restriction, but the Knicks would be extremely foolish to play him big minutes. Calderon has been out all season after an aggravation and he has a laundry list of muscle issues in his career. He should be owned in all leagues, but his owners should bench him. Shane Larkin owner will want to cut him in just about every league. We'll also keep an eye on how Calderon's return affects guys like Iman Shumpert.
Nov 22 - 5:51 PM

Norris Cole (finger) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

It's going to be Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier handling the minutes at point guard tonight. With Chalmers logging more minutes at point guard, Shannon Brown will also be getting more run. The Heat have no been playing James Ennis at shooting guard much, so he doesn't benefit much.
Nov 22 - 5:42 PM

Marcus Smart (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Blazers.

It seems hard to believe that he is even close to a return after an ugly ankle injury. The Celtics are off until Friday following Sunday's game, so perhaps Smart will be ready for that contest. Phil Pressey should get some extra run tomorrow while Marcus Thornton and Evan Turner also see a bump.
Nov 22 - 4:40 PM

Kobe Bryant (rest) did not practice on Saturday.

Coach Byron Scott said he had him rest for heavy legs. "He’s such a workaholic that sometimes it can hurt you more than help you. So I told him ‘I’ll see you Sunday,‘" Scott said. Bryant definitely looked like he needed the rest with he and Nick Young missing their first 12 shots in an embarrassing loss to the Mavericks on Friday. He'll be ready on Sunday against the Nuggets.
Nov 22 - 4:31 PM

Jeremy Lin (back) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) skipped practice on Saturday.

Both injuries are not considered serious. Lin did have to battle two different bouts with back pain last season and it did cost him some game action, so this isn't nothing. The Lakers cannot afford for Lin to go down and would be down to Ronnie Price and Jordan Clarkson. Neither player are worth a grab at this juncture and we'll give Lin the benefit of the doubt for now.
Nov 22 - 4:23 PM

Russell Westbrook (hand) went through portions of Saturday's non-contact practice.

He is still in the rehab process and there is no timetable for his return just yet. Westbrook will be re-evaluated later this month and he could be back in the lineup soon after than. Reggie Jackson will certainly take a hit, but he should still be worth owning in standard leagues.
