Daniel Orton (mild concussion) is expected to play in Friday's Summer League game.

The Thunder could still hold him out as a precaution. Orton has been impressive this week and his teammates are saying that he's putting in a ton of work at the gym. He was once a highly-touted prospect from Kentucky and he's starting to come into his own as he begins his fourth year as a pro. That said, he's still not on the fantasy radar yet.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said he's "worried" about Chris Paul (right hamstring) playing in Game 6 on Saturday.

"He'll be evaluated tomorrow," D'Antoni said. If there is good news on this, it's that it's not a left hammy issue because that is the leg that gave him problems during this season. Based on how distraught CP3 looked as he went to the locker room after the game, it would almost be a shock to see him out there for Game 6, and maybe he can play in Game 7. Eric Gordon and James Harden will both have to play lights out.

James Harden struggled in a 98-94 victory over the Warriors in Game 5, making 5-of-21 from the field for 19 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and six turnovers in 39 minutes.

It was an absolutely brutal game and now Harden has missed 20 treys in a row, including 11 misses tonight to tie him with John Starks in 1994 for most 3-point attempts without a make in a playoff game. Harden is going to have to play better in the rest of this series because of Chris Paul (hamstring) likely being limited or out. He may also have to see more Andre Iguodala (leg). Even though the Rockets have a 3-2 lead, you could argue they're the underdogs to win this series unless we get good news on CP3.

Eric Gordon scored 24 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He made some big plays on both ends late in this game. Moving forward, coach Mike D'Antoni said Gordon could be looking at a play-making role while Chris Paul (hamstring) is out. Nothing is official yet on CP3, but for now we're expecting Gordon to post huge numbers in 36-42 minutes in Game 6 on Saturday.
May 24 - 11:58 PM

P.J. Tucker scored eight points with nine rebounds and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He was the key piece on defense with strong play on the perimeter and around the basket. Before the game, coach Mike D'Antoni said he wanted to dial back Tucker's minutes, but that didn't happen too much after his 44-minute Tuesday. He'll be playing a ton on Saturday and could get more shots if Chris Paul (hamstring) is banged up.

Kevin Durant scored 29 points with four rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes during a 98-94 loss to the Rockets in Game 5 on Thursday.

Again, the passing wasn't there with 18 dimes tonight and 14 in Game 4 -- they averaged 29.3 per game in the regular season. Coach Steve Kerr was getting on his guys to cut and Kerr said after the game that his offense was better today than Tuesday. Kerr also told KD to "trust these guys" during a timeout, but afterwards said throwing the ball to KD is a good option. Isolation ball has been a big part of the GS struggles, and KD was really struggling to get good shots late. Besides that, turnovers were costly with 16, including a team-high six from Draymond Green. This is hardly the Warriors team we saw in the playoffs last year.

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.
May 24 - 11:36 PM

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.
May 24 - 8:41 PM

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.
May 24 - 2:31 PM

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.
