Macedonian PF/C Pero Antic will sign a two-year deal with the Hawks once he passes a physical, according to his agent.

Antic is 30 years old and he's coming off a streak of success with Olympiakos, which included the 21012-13 Euroleague championship. He gives Atlanta a veteran bruiser to support Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Elton Brand, but he's a doubtful source of fantasy value while those guys are healthy. The deal is described as "1+1" but it's unclear whether the second year is a player or team option.

Nikola Mirotic (left quad strain) had a limp following Monday's game against the Bucks

He also had swelling in his knee and may have suffered a concussion. Mirotic had treatment and was able to limp around under his own power. He said he's a little concerned about his leg, but the good news is that the Bulls are off until Thursday. If he's out, Taj Gibson, Mike Dunleavy and Jimmy Butler will play a little more.

Jimmy Butler put the Bulls on his back during a 91-82 win over the Bucks on Monday, scoring a playoff career-high 31 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 46 minutes.

Nobody else on the Bulls played well for the entire game on offense, but Butler came to the rescue. He put the whole arsenal on display tonight and the Bucks had no answer for him. Also, the Bulls played Nikola Mirotic at the four more, so that gave Butler more minutes compared to his 35 in Game 1. He'll likely log over 40 in Game 3 on Thursday.

Zaza Pachulia was ejected on Monday for two technical fouls.

The first one a little excessive by the refs and second came because he got into it with Nikola Mirotic. Pachulia isn't going to be suspended for this infraction and should still start for Game 3. There will be more minutes going to John Henson the rest of the way tonight. Zaza finished with seven points, six boards, one steal and two blocks in 23 minutes.

Tyreke Evans (knee) will play against the Warriors on Monday.

With Jrue Holiday (leg) out, the Pelicans are going to need plenty out of Evans. He is likely less than 100 percent and needed some treatment before this game. Evans only scored one point in Game 1 and will look to bounce back.

Jrue Holiday (leg) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

There should be more minutes going to Norris Cole with Jrue out of the lineup. The Pelicans gave Holiday 21 minutes in Game 1, so they're probably regretting that. Holiday should be considered questionable to play in Game 3.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is extremely sore on Monday and could be a game-time decision on Tuesday.

The good news is that his knee didn't swell up like it did last time. Parsons had some swelling in his knee following his injury on Apr. 2, so at least this aggravation isn't as bad. If Parsons can't go, the Mavs are really going to have a tough time containing James Harden because of all the fouls he'll draw. Richard Jefferson would start and one would think Al-Farouq Aminu would get more minutes because of the matchup. We'll have an update on Parsons tomorrow.

Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are both game-time decisions against the Warriors for Monday's Game 2.

Holiday will be limited even if he does play in this one, while Evans' availability is unlikely to be determined until right before tipoff. It's hard to envision any scenario where Evans is at 100 percent health, but Evans will do everything he can to get out there. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole is staring at an enormous role with Holiday not his usual self.

Updating a previous item, Chandler Parsons (knee) and Devin Harris (toe) are both questionable for Game 2 vs. Houston.

Parsons admitted to his knee giving out on him during Game 1, something that was pretty noticeable to anyone watching as he battled with a limp for the duration of the contest. Harris, on the other hand, aggravated his toe injury in Game 1 and was forced out of action. If both guys are on the sidelines, it would mean Richard Jefferson is likely to start with increased minutes for Al-Farouq Aminu. As for Harris' absence, that would open the door for more J.J. Barea.
Apr 20 - 12:26 PM

Al Horford (finger) said there is still "some question" as to whether or not he'll be available for Game 2 vs. the Nets.

He's getting "treatment galore," but it would be a major surprise if Horford were forced out of the lineup. Although the big man said it was "very uncomfortable" to shoot with his fingers taped, Horford should be able to get out there so long as he doesn't have any setbacks. It's a situation to monitor closely, and we're putting him on the injury report now that he's said he's unsure of his availability.

Lou Williams was named the NBA's 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year on Monday.

Isaiah Thomas finished second in the voting, and Jamal Crawford rounded out the top three. There was a darkhorse case to be made for Andre Iguodala, but he finished fourth in the voting. It's been a pretty good year for Sweet Lou after being traded for John Salmons and Lucas Nogueira last summer. Williams finished the regular season with averages of 15.5 points, 1.1 steals and 1.9 triples on 40.4 percent shooting.
Apr 20 - 12:17 PM

Al Jefferson said that he intends to remain with the Hornets next season.

Big Al has no desire to opt out, citing "unfinished business" with the Hornets. Jefferson added that he has a desire to lose 20-25 lbs this offseason in order to take some of the pressure off his knees, a move that would benefit both he and his team. Said Jefferson, "I've got to redeem myself."
