Orlando Magic GM Rob Hennigan said the team could revisit the Eric Bledsoe for Arron Afflalo swap in the offseason.

With Orlando taking Victor Oladipo second overall in the draft, the team will likely look to move Afflalo as they go even younger. If they can ship him to Los Angeles and acquire Bledsoe, it would be a major win for Hennigan and a backcourt of the future that includes Bledsoe and Oladipo would be very fun to watch.

Thon Maker made a major impact off the bench against the Celtics in Game 3 on Friday, scoring 14 points with five rebounds, one steal, five blocks and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

He was knocking down open treys with plenty of pick-and-pop action, and he was terrific on help defense as the Celtics attacked the basket. John Henson (back) was ruled out with plenty of time to spare before tip, so maybe Maker gets another chance to put up numbers. He'll be a DFS play, but don't expect him to be this good.

Jabari Parker scored 17 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Celtics in Game 3 on Friday.

He wanted playing time, and he got it in this big win. Parker did get some minutes in garbage time, but the damage was already done with 17 points before the final five minutes. If John Henson (back) is out again, Parker should be able to find minutes in the upper 20s or even low 30s if he's hot.

John Wall scored 28 points with six rebounds, 14 assists, four steals, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes during a 122-103 win over the Raptors in Game 3 on Friday.

Bradley Beal matched Wall's 28 points as the backcourt that claims their the best in the NBA actually played like it today. Wall and Beal combined for 40 points in the first half, which helped the Wizards get 22 points off turnovers in the first half, as well. Both guards will have to get their teammates involved because odds are they're both not going to be on in the next few games. The Wizards will look to even up this series on Sunday at home.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored a postseason career-high 30 points during a comeback 92-90 win over the Cavs in Game 3 on Friday, adding four rebounds and seven 3-pointers.

He was 11-of-15 from the field for a tidy 96.7 eFG% in this comeback win after the Pacers fell behind 57-40 at half. Bojan had the Rockets approach for scoring with all of his 11 makes coming either at the rim or from deep while several of his treys were well beyond the arc. He was also a star on the defensive end with on-ball pressure on LeBron James, which is even more impressive after he picked up two fouls in the first 2:30 of this win. He's been solid all season and he'll continue to be the most important defensive piece in what looks like will be a lengthy series.

LeBron James scored 28 points during a 92-90 loss to the Pacers in Game 3 on Friday, adding 12 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block, six turnovers and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

This one hurts as the Cavs were up 57-40 at half and this loss is the first time all season they've blown a fourth-quarter lead -- they were 40-0 before today. The Cavs offense was a disaster in the second half and their defense fell off after a strong showing in the first half. Basically, every set was just giving LeBron the ball and hoping for a slightly-contested three. James scored 12 straight Cavs points in the fourth to keep his team in it, and the help that he had in the first half went away. LeBron has been sweeping first-round series for the previous five years and he's never lost a first-round series (12-0), but now he finds himself in a 1-2 hole.

Malcolm Brogdon is starting over Tony Snell against the Celtics on Friday.

The Bucks are really mixing it up today with Tyler Zeller starting for an injured John Henson. The Bucks are going to have to play some smaller lineups, so putting Brogdon out there first makes sense to give Snell a chance to play backup minutes at the forward spots. Brogdon could be a DFS option today.

Tyler Zeller is getting the start for John Henson against the Celtics for Game 3 on Friday.

Coach Joe Prunty doesn't get cute here to start this game off, but the Bucks will certainly be using more Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. Jabari Parker should benefit most from no Henson while Malcolm Brogdon could see more run as well. Zeller is just a lukewarm punt play in DFS.
Apr 20 - 8:34 PM

John Henson (back) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

That's bad news for the Bucks because Henson has been solid and he's also been in six of the seven most-used lineups in this series. With him out, that should mean Tyler Zeller gets a bump in minutes, but the Bucks would almost certainly be looking to run out more lineups with Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. That should open up minutes for Jabari Parker.
Apr 20 - 7:47 PM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) will not play on Friday against the Wizards for Game 3.

He hasn't been able to get over his shoulder injury and he played just three minutes in Game 2. Simply put, Delon Wright is now in a big spot after two outstanding games off the bench. Wright will likely play the vast majority of the fourth and he'll guard John Wall. Get Wright in your DFS lineups.
Apr 20 - 6:40 PM

Marcin Gortat will start against the Raptors for Game 3 on Friday.

There was a lot of talk of Mike Scott getting the start because of how well he's shot the ball, but coach Scott Brooks said he's still confident with his first unit. Plus, Gortat is among the league leaders for screen assists this season while he is tied with Clint Capela for the lead in screen assists per game this postseason, so taking him out would put more pressure on John Wall. Still, Gortat will be on a short leash today, so he's a risky DFS play.
Apr 20 - 6:25 PM

Stephen Curry (knee) was examined on Friday and will be re-evaluated again in one week.

He will take part in what the team is calling "modified team practices" on Saturday and he'll increase the intensity of his on-court rehab. Curry is already starting to do some lateral movements and is getting some shots up with the training staff. It doesn't sound like he'll be ready for Game 1 against the Pelicans, but he should be back at some point in that series.
