Jannero Pargo and the Bobcats agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.4 million.

Pargo had discussions with the Knicks last week, but New York agreed to a deal with Beno Udrih on Thursday. Pargo played for three clubs last season but finished with the Bobcats. He'll likely compete with Ramon Sessions for time behind starting point guard Kemba Walker.

Coach Gregg Popovich said Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Clippers.

Not even a mask can get Baynes to play, apparently. It's a little interesting and unusual for Pop to reveal Baynes' status for this game. As we all know, theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated. It sounds like Baynes will be out for a couple games. Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw will play more.

Chris Kaman (ankle) and Arron Afflalo (shoulder) are planning to play on Saturday in Game 3.

Kaman is listed as questionable and he said he didn't do anything in practice on Friday. "I know once I tape it and get the right drugs in me, everything will be good," Kaman said. "I’m ready to play tomorrow." He's likely looking at minutes in the teens and will bump Joel Freeland out of the rotation while taking away some time from Meyers Leonard.

Ami Johnson will start at power forward in place of Tyler Hansbrough in Game 3 on Friday.

Hansbrough literally had nothing positive to offer on the stat sheet in 12 minutes on Saturday with only one foul and one missed field goal attempt. The Wizards led the NBA in player efficiency rating allowed to power forwards this regular season, so Johnson may have a tough time putting up a big line. He'll also really need to avoid foul trouble, which is a problem for him. Patrick Patterson should also play more than Psycho T.

Raymond Felton will start against the Rockets on Friday in place of Rajon Rondo (back).

Usually, the Mavs would go with J.J. Barea, but they're so thin that they need to get Felton in the rotation because of Chandler Parsons (knee) also out. Felton is likely going to act as an off-ball guard while Monta Ellis handles the offense. Barea is not as attractive in fantasy leagues because it's going to be tough for him to log at least 24 minutes. Additionally, the Mavs used a three-guard lineup of Monta, Felton and Barea three minutes in the second half in Game 2, so coach Rick Carlisle will likely go that route again. Devin Harris should also get minutes close to 20.
Apr 24 - 6:49 PM

David Lee (back) is not listed on the injury report for Game 4 on Saturday.

He was expected to play 3-on-3 today and it apparently went well. Lee may not be in the rotation and he would only be Draymond Green's backup at best. Green has at least 40 minutes in all three playoff games this season while Andrew Bogut is also getting 29.7 minutes of playing time. Don't expect much out of Lee in the playoffs.
Apr 24 - 6:02 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is probable to play against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He was able to do some shooting before Wednesday, but his shoulder looked to be an issue on long-range shots. Afflalo was pushing a weighed sled on Friday, which suggests he's a lot closer to being healthy. C.J. McCollum played 37 minutes in Game 1 and just 29 minutes in Game 2, so maybe he's lost some playing time due to making just 19.0 percent from the field in the playoffs. Expect C.J. and Allen Crabbe to lose more minutes. Afflalo is still not someone fantasy owners can trust due to his lackluster numbers since joining the Blazers.
Apr 24 - 3:48 PM

Nikola Mirotic (knee) was not able to run at practice on Friday.

It doesn't sound like he'll be ready for Game 4 on Saturday. With Mirotic out, his minutes at small forward went to Tony Snell while his minutes at the four went to Taj Gibson. The Bulls have plenty of depth at both forward spots and they'll have four chances to finish off the Bucks, so don't expect the rookie to play in the next couple games.
Apr 24 - 3:42 PM

Gregg Popovich said that Tiago Splitter will be available for as many minutes as needed for Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday.

Aron Baynes (ankle) is being listed as doubtful, so if he's unable to go, his minutes will likely be split up between Splitter, Boris Diaw, and potentially Matt Bonner. Bonner offers very little value in fantasy leagues, but Diaw and Splitter are worth considering as low-end, plug-and-play options in daily leagues.
Apr 24 - 1:20 PM

Aron Baynes (sprained ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's Game 3 against the Clippers.

It's unclear exactly when Baynes suffered this ankle injury, but it's sounding like he's not going to be able to play tonight. Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tiago Splitter will be available for as many minutes as needed tonight, so he looks like the primary beneficiary with Baynes on the sidelines.
Apr 24 - 1:14 PM

Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker will play in Game 3 against the Clippers on Friday.

Parker is going to fight through the pain tonight for a very important Game 3 for San Antonio. He has however struggled through the first two games of the series, scoring just one point in his last outing, so he makes for a very risky option in daily leagues.
Apr 24 - 1:09 PM

Kyle Lowry is dealing with an illness in addition to his shin contusion, but he's expected to be in uniform for Friday's Game 3 in Washington.

Lowry didn't do much on the court during Friday morning's shootaround, but all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go in a must-win game for the Raptors. He hasn't played very well at all through the first two games of the series, and while he's not going to make any excuses, his health has certainly been a factor in his less-than-stellar performances. He's a risky daily league play.
