John Finger said on Twitter Friday that Sixers forward Royce White says he will fly on an airplane this season.

While that's really all we know, it's definitely a step in the right direction, although White has flown at times in the past. If White buys in for the Sixers and is ready to travel with his teammates on a full-time basis, he could actually be ready to make an impact this season. Especially with the news that Arnett Moultrie (ankle surgery) will miss half the season and Kwame Brown (hamstring) is also sidelined. We still need to see what role White will have, if any, but this should be looked at as good news.

Updating a previous item, the Warriors said Klay Thompson developed concussion-like symptoms after the game.

"Klay Thompson was evaluated by the Warriors medical staff immediately after suffering an injury during tonight's game and was put through a concussion evaluation," the team statement said. "At the time he did not show any concussion-like symptoms." This is not good at all. Thompson said he was dizzy right after the game and his dad, Mychal Thompson, said Klay "threw up and says he feels a lot better." Klay will have a week to make it through the concussion protocol and the Warriors will have to answer some questions about this.

Harrison Barnes was superb against the Rockets to help the Warriors advance to the NBA Finals on Wednesday, scoring 24 points with seven rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in the 104-90 victory.

It was Playoff Barnes after he struggled in the previous two games. The Warriors used him more at the power forward spot tonight, which is something that should continue in the NBA Finals. Plus, he attacked the basket at will tonight and did a very nice job on James Harden. If the Warriors get this Barnes vs. the Cavs, Dub Nation has to like its chances.

Stephen Curry scored 26 points with eight rebounds, six assists, five steals, three turnovers and three 3-pointers on 7-of-21 from the field against the Rockets in a series-clinching win on Wednesday.

He ditched his elbow sleeve in the third quarter after messing with it throughout the game. Curry had plenty of clean looks and the Warriors gave him a slew of off-ball screens to get him loose. He is going to have a week to recover before Game 1 in Oakland on June 4. In two games against the Cavs this season, Curry averaged 20.5 points, 8.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys. It'll be a treat watching him face off against Kyrie Irving.

Festus Ezeli scored a playoff career-high 12 points against the Rockets on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes.

Andrew Bogut was in foul trouble and the Warriors were lucky to get a massive game out of their backup center. Ezeli was only playing 7.5 minutes per game in these playoffs before this win and he's likely earned some extra playing time in the NBA Finals. Considering how much LeBron James likes to get into the paint, the Warriors are likely going to have some fouling issues. Of course, don't expect Festus to play this much.

James Harden turned the ball over an NBA Playoffs record 13 times during a 104-90 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, adding 14 points with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and no 3-pointers.

To make matters worse, he was just 2-of-11 from the field in what may have been his worst game of his season. Although, Houston's worst stretch tonight was with Harden on the bench. They just went up against a better team and Harden's Rockets should be able to make another playoff run next year. He'll be a top-three pick in fantasy leagues next season, as well.

Dwight Howard picked up his seventh technical foul of the postseason on Wednesday.

If this technical is not rescinded, he would be suspended for Game 6 in Houston. Of course, the Rockets would have to win tonight's game for this to be relevant.

Shelvin Mack will have surgery on his right shoulder.

The Hawks are really, really banged up with the season ending. Mack separated his shoulder and the surgery should take place next week. He'll be nothing more than a backup next season.
May 27 - 9:37 PM

Kyle Korver had right ankle surgery on Wednesday and will be out for three months.

He had surgery to repair ligament damage and should be back for training camp. Teams took a different approach on Korver during the postseason and did a much better job being aware of where he was without the ball. It'll be interesting to see if teams use this strategy next season. Korver is still going to be a middle-round target in fantasy leagues next season.
May 27 - 9:36 PM

Stephen Curry is going through shootaround on Wednesday wearing a right elbow sleeve, but he will play and see his normal amount of minutes in Game 5 vs. the Rockets.

Curry had a scary fall in Game 4 and appeared to hit his head, shoulder and elbow, but he said that he feels fine and that he is dealing with some bruising and general soreness on the right side of his body. For what it's worth, Curry passed the league's concussion protocol twice before he re-entered Monday's game, and he seemed to be fine after that. His elbow could be a little sore, so it will be interesting to see if it has any impact on his shooting stroke. We will pass along any additional details when we know more, but it's safe to activate him in fantasy leagues.

Beno Udrih will undergo ankle surgery and will not play with the Slovenian national team at Eurobasket this summer.

We don't have a lot of details right now, but it is likely a minor procedure. Udrih played through an ankle issue during the playoffs, but the fact that he won't play with the Slovenian national team means that he will have plenty of time to recover. As always, we will track his progress closely and will update his status once more is known.

Al Horford was invisible during the Hawks' season-ending Game 4 defeat, scoring only two points on 1-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and one block in 29 minutes.

Horford avoided a suspension for his flying elbow to Matthew Dellavedova's neck in Game 3, but that's where the good news ended. He looked passive on Tuesday, at best, and all but two of his field goal attempts came from mid-range. He shot 58.3 percent in the series but attempted only 9.0 shots per game, giving him a usage rate below 19 percent. Fantasy owners shouldn't let Horford's Conference Finals dud dissuade them on draft day next season, as he's in a contract year and has returned top-20 value in each of the past three seasons when healthy.
