Pelicans draft pick Pierre Jackson will reportedly begin his professional career with ASVEL Basket in France.

There was no lack of interest from teams overseas and presumably ASVEL will give Jackson plenty of playing time to develop his skills before he makes the leap back to the NBA. His departure gives Brian Roberts a clear path to backup PG minutes behind Jrue Holiday, though Tyreke Evans will probably dominate the ball for New Orleans' second unit.

Moe Harkless is getting the start for Game 3 against the Pelicans on Thursday.

In case you missed it, Evan Turner (toe) is out tonight. Harkless doesn't have a hard cap for his minutes, but his playing time will be monitored in his second game back from injury. Harkless was one of the Blazers' best players in March and he was a big part of their winning streak, so expect him to get all the minutes he can handle.

JaVale McGee (quad) will play in Game 3 against the Spurs on Thursday.

He went through some pre-game work already and should be out there after suffering a quad contusion. McGee has made a big impact early in games and he should be looking at minutes in the teens today.
Apr 19 - 8:02 PM

Evan Turner (toe) will not play in Game 3 on Thursday.

That means we'll see more of Moe Harkless in his second game back from a minor knee procedure. Shabazz Napier and Pat Connaughton should also see a few extra minutes, but Harkless is the guy to target in DFS today.
Apr 19 - 6:54 PM

Joel Embiid (face) will start for Game 3 against the Heat on Thursday.

He's back. Embiid will reportedly wear a mask and goggles in his return to the lineup after missing 21 days. He doesn't have a formal minutes cap and his playing time will be based on his conditioning. Embiid is likely going to see a lot of Hassan Whiteside, and it's worth a mention he attempted more 3-pointers with Whiteside guarding him than any other player in the NBA this season (6-of-11, per NBA.com). Trust The Process.

Kristaps Porzingis (knee surgery) could miss the entire 2018-19 season according to Knicks owner James Dolan.

"I’ve been told everything from December to him being out for the season, so I don’t know what to expect on that," Dolan said. "But we can’t just sit on our a-- while he’s away. We need to develop a team and then integrate him into it when he comes back." Porzingis tore his ACL back in February and there's no word of any setbacks, so it's unclear why Dolan is being so pessimistic. KP recently said he was hopeful to be ready for the start of the 2018-19 season, so take Dolan's comments with a grain of salt for now.

Gerald Green racked up 21 points and 12 rebounds off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-17 shots with five 3-pointers, one assist, one block and zero turnovers in 26 minutes.

All of Green's attempts in the first half were from downtown, but that's nothing new -- he took a whopping 72.3% of his shots from beyond the arc this season, including 17 triples in Houston's regular-season finale. His deft scoring touch helped Houston overcome a brutal 2-of-18 shooting night from James Harden, and they head to Minnesota with a comfortable 2-0 series lead.

James Harden shot 2-of-18 from the field for 12 points on Wednesday, making 7-of-8 free throws with seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and three blocks.

Harden finished 1-of-10 from downtown, yet the Rockets still pulled away for a 102-82 victory thanks to lock-down defense and big games from Chris Paul (27 points) and Gerald Green (21 points). The Wolves threw multiple defenders at Harden all night long and considering they held him to 11.1% percent shooting, it's a strategy we're likely to see again as the series shifts to Minnesota for Game 3 on Saturday.

Karl-Anthony Towns shot 2-of-9 for five points during the Wolves' lopsided Game 2 loss, adding 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

KAT was held to eight points on nine shots in Game 1 and the Wolves talked a lot about getting him going offensively, but that obviously didn't come to fruition. He was held to single-digit scoring just twice during the entire regular season and the fact that Houston has limited him in consecutive games is mind-boggling -- the Rockets did have the sixth-best Defensive Efficiency in the league this year, and their swarming defense has short-circuited the Wolves' offense. Towns and the Wolves will go back to the drawing board for Game 3 at the Target Center on Saturday.
Apr 19 - 12:11 AM

Donovan Mitchell (bruised left foot) finished Wednesday's road win with a game-high 28 points on 10-of-25 FGs and 8-of-9 FTs, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 43 minutes.

Mitchell was a game-time decision after MRIs were negative for structural damage, but you couldn't tell he was injured by watching him play. He was instrumental in turning a 10-point deficit into a lead in the fourth quarter, and continues to reach new heights in his rookie season -- he and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are the only players to score 27+ points in their first two playoff appearances. He's unreal.
Apr 18 - 10:58 PM

Derrick Favors set multiple postseason highs on Wednesday with 20 points and 16 rebounds, adding three assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Favors had six offensive rebounds in the first half alone, finishing with eight boards on the offensive glass. He's having a solid season for Utah after battling injuries in recent years, and has quieted concerns about his ability to share the frontcourt with Rudy Gobert. Tonight's impressive 102-95 victory ties things up at 1-1 as the series shifts to Utah for Game 3.
Apr 18 - 10:57 PM

Ricky Rubio was terrific on Wednesday with 22 points on 6-of-16 shooting, nine assists, seven rebounds and one steal in a Game 2 victory at OKC.

Rubio launched 18 shots in Utah's Game 1 defeat, which tied the third-most attempts he had in any regular season game this year. He wasn't shy tonight, either, and connected on 5-of-6 free throws while knocking down five 3-pointers. The triples tied Rubio's season high and helped Utah escape with a series-tying victory, despite the rest of the roster combining for 4-of-21 shooting from downtown. So far, so good for Rubio in his first postseason run.
