Iman Shumpert's knee MRI revealed no structural damage and he will start in Tuesday's Game 4 against the Pacers.

Shumpert can breathe a sigh of relief as he hasn't sustained any kind of setback in the same left knee he tore the ACL in last year. Coach Mike Woodson said Shumpert's minutes will depend on how he's moving. He's averaging 29.9 minutes a night through the first nine games of the playoffs.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Nikola Mirotic will be a "situational player" for Chicago's second-round series against Cleveland.

Mirotic only left the bench for two minutes during Game 1, and it sounds like unless there's a major injury to the Bulls frontcourt, he's not going to be a steady rotation player during Chicago's second-round series. Those playing daily leagues should probably avoid playing Mirotic.

Chris Paul (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Paul was also listed as questionable for Game 1, and he's likely headed for a game-time decision. After the Clippers stole Game 1 without the services of Paul, it'll be very interesting to see if head coach Doc Rivers elects to give him another day of rest and sit him on Wednesday in order to be ready for Friday's Game 3 at Staples Center. Expect another update on Paul after Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's sidelined, it'll again be Blake Griffin, J.J. Redick, and Jamal Crawford doing the heavy lifting on offense. Austin Rivers would start at point guard.

Mike Conley (face) went through shootaround and he is officially being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Warriors on Tuesday.

Conley said that he expects to play in Game 2, and he's likely headed for a game-time decision. He underwent a fairly major surgery just last week, so it would be impressive to say the least if he's able to play tonight. For what it's worth, Conley still hasn't participated in any contact drills. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, and if he is able to go, Nick Calathes would head back to the bench where he'd split minutes with Beno Udrih. Stay tuned.

Derrick Rose (shoulder) will play in Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Rose's status was never really in doubt after he suffered a shoulder stinger during Monday's Game 1 win, but it's nice to get early confirmation that he'll be able to play. Rose has had a strong showing thus far in the playoffs and should be started in all playoff fantasy games as long as he's healthy.

Goran Dragic said the Miami Heat are his first choice in free agency.

Dragic will opt out of his contract before the end of the month, but he said he's hoping to stay with the Heat as long as the two sides are on the same page finanically. "As long as I’m in a happy environment and a healthy organization, that’s the most important thing," Dragic said. "The next three, four, five years — I want to spend it on this kind of team, like the Miami Heat. They have great players, great coaching staff and great training staff." While he didn't return value as a third-round pick in 2014-15 , Dragic should benefit from a full season in a Heat uniform if he returns and is worthy of an early-mid round selection in fantasy drafts.

Bradley Beal (ankle) will suit up for Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

Confirming a previous item in which Beal said he expected to play, the 21-year-old will officially be in the Wizards' starting lineup on Tuesday. Beal has dealt with quite a few ankle injuries in his short NBA tenure, but he practiced without much issue on Monday and should be in good enough shape to continue his strong playoff run in Game 2 against the Hawks.
May 5 - 12:00 PM

John Wall (wrist) will play in Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

This news comes as no surprise as Wall had previously said he'd play, but fantasy owners can now safely start him on Game 2. Wall said he's dealing with some swelling in his left wrist, but he played with both hands after injuring his wrist in Game 1 so he shouldn't be too limited on Tuesday night.

Russell Westbrook is upset that that Thunder did not consult with him about the hiring of new head coach Billy Donovan, according to Justin Termine of SiriusXM.

According to Termine's sources, the Thunder consulted with Kevin Durant, but did not include Westbrook in that consultation. Westbrook had previously spoken out in support of ousted head coach Scott Brooks, so there could be some hurt feelings in regards to that as well. Westbrook has two seasons left on his contract with the Thunder, so there may not be much recourse for him here, but we'll keep an eye out for updates on Termine's report.

Mark Cuban took to Twitter to defend the increased practice of intentionally fouling bad free throw shooters in the playoffs.

In a series of tweets on Monday night, Cuban defended what he called the "Hack-A-Whoever" approach. After questioning if watching a player who gets to the line a lot make free throws is any more interesting than watching a bad free throw shooter miss free throws, Cuban responded to a question about a rule change with, "Teach the guy to make FTs. Problem solved. You don't need to change the rules." There will be plenty of offseason discussion about a potential rule change, but it's becoming pretty clear where the Mavericks' outspoken owner stands on this one.

Chris Bosh opened about about his blood clot scare on a radio interview and said there were times that he couldn't breathe.

Bosh said he couldn't breathe during a February 1 win over the Celtics, but tried to play through it. "I know, I’ll never do it again," Bosh said. "It sounds crazy, doesn’t it? I wish I could go back and tell myself not to do those things, but I’m lucky to be alive. I am. I took that as a lesson to stop trying to be a tough guy all the time. That’s kinda how we’re trained, to just suck it up and throw some dirt on it and get back out there." We'll keep an eye on his status, but Bosh said he's doing well now and it sounds like he should be healthy for the start of the 2015-16 season.

Derrick Rose said he isn't worried about the shoulder injury he suffered during Monday's Game 1 win over the Cavaliers.

Rose suffered a shoulder stinger towards the end of the game, but was able to walk it off and didn't sound too worried after the game. "It was a stinger; my first time ever," Rose said. "It went away within 5,10 minutes. It’s something I’m not worried about." Rose had a fantastic Game 1 in scoring 25 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers and Bulls fans can breathe a sign of relief as it sounds like he'll be just fine for Wednesday's Game 2.
