Brandan Wright suffered a small, non-displaced fracture of his left shoulder and is out indefinitely.

He's not expected to have surgery, but the fracture should cost him some time in the regular season. It's a tough break for Wright after a productive and eye-catching offseason. Samuel Dalembert will take on most of the minutes at center and the team may have to call upon DeJuan Blair more than anticipated.

Bojan Bogdanovic scored a postseason career-high 30 points during a comeback 92-90 win over the Cavs in Game 3 on Friday, adding four rebounds and seven 3-pointers.

He was 11-of-15 from the field for a tidy 96.7 eFG% in this comeback win after the Pacers fell behind 57-40 at half. Bojan had the Rockets approach for scoring with all of his 11 makes coming either at the rim or from deep while several of his treys were well beyond the arc. He was also a star on the defensive end with on-ball pressure on LeBron James, which is even more impressive after he picked up two fouls in the first 2:30 of this win. He's been solid all season and he'll continue to be the most important defensive piece in what looks like will be a lengthy series.

LeBron James scored 28 points during a 92-90 loss to the Pacers in Game 3 on Friday, adding 12 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block, six turnovers and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

This one hurts as the Cavs were up 57-40 at half and this loss is the first time all season they've blown a fourth-quarter lead -- they were 40-0 before today. The Cavs offense was a disaster in the second half and their defense fell off after a strong showing in the first half. Basically, every set was just giving LeBron the ball and hoping for a slightly-contested three. James scored 12 straight Cavs points in the fourth to keep his team in it, and the help that he had in the first half went away. LeBron has been sweeping first-round series for the previous five years and he's never lost a first-round series (12-0), but now he finds himself in a 1-2 hole.

Malcolm Brogdon is starting over Tony Snell against the Celtics on Friday.

The Bucks are really mixing it up today with Tyler Zeller starting for an injured John Henson. The Bucks are going to have to play some smaller lineups, so putting Brogdon out there first makes sense to give Snell a chance to play backup minutes at the forward spots. Brogdon could be a DFS option today.

Tyler Zeller is getting the start for John Henson against the Celtics for Game 3 on Friday.

Coach Joe Prunty doesn't get cute here to start this game off, but the Bucks will certainly be using more Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. Jabari Parker should benefit most from no Henson while Malcolm Brogdon could see more run as well. Zeller is just a lukewarm punt play in DFS.

John Henson (back) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

That's bad news for the Bucks because Henson has been solid and he's also been in six of the seven most-used lineups in this series. With him out, that should mean Tyler Zeller gets a bump in minutes, but the Bucks would almost certainly be looking to run out more lineups with Giannis Antetokounmpo at the five. That should open up minutes for Jabari Parker.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) will not play on Friday against the Wizards for Game 3.

He hasn't been able to get over his shoulder injury and he played just three minutes in Game 2. Simply put, Delon Wright is now in a big spot after two outstanding games off the bench. Wright will likely play the vast majority of the fourth and he'll guard John Wall. Get Wright in your DFS lineups.
Apr 20 - 6:40 PM

Marcin Gortat will start against the Raptors for Game 3 on Friday.

There was a lot of talk of Mike Scott getting the start because of how well he's shot the ball, but coach Scott Brooks said he's still confident with his first unit. Plus, Gortat is among the league leaders for screen assists this season while he is tied with Clint Capela for the lead in screen assists per game this postseason, so taking him out would put more pressure on John Wall. Still, Gortat will be on a short leash today, so he's a risky DFS play.

Stephen Curry (knee) was examined on Friday and will be re-evaluated again in one week.

He will take part in what the team is calling "modified team practices" on Saturday and he'll increase the intensity of his on-court rehab. Curry is already starting to do some lateral movements and is getting some shots up with the training staff. It doesn't sound like he'll be ready for Game 1 against the Pelicans, but he should be back at some point in that series.
Apr 20 - 3:21 PM

Moe Harkless (left knee) and Evan Turner (right toe) are both questionable for Game 4 against the Pelicans on Saturday.

Turner looked to have gone through portions of practice on Friday, so he may have a shot to play after sitting out for Game 3. The Blazers are going to need help on offense from players not named Damian Lillard because Dame continues to get trapped. Turner could be a DFS play, but not being 100 percent makes him risky.

Stephen Curry (left knee) is "still not close to playing," according to Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic.

There was video footage released on Thursday of Curry doing full-court work; however, Thompson's sources tell him that Curry "isn't in the final stages of his rehabilitation." Steph will be re-evaluated on Friday, so we should have an update on his status soon. It now seems possible that Curry may miss the start of the second round, especially if both the Warriors and the Pelicans sweep the Spurs and Blazers, respectively.

Coach Mike D'Antoni said that Ryan Anderson (ankle) was probable for Game 3 Saturday night vs. the Wolves.

Anderson initially injured his ankle back on April 3rd. It has cost him the final four games of the regular season and Games 1 and 2 in Houston's first-round matchup vs. Minnesota. Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) is also sidelined, but the Rockets have still comfortably taken care of the Wolves in the first two games of the series. Assuming Anderson is cleared to play on Saturday, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green will see their minutes scaled back.
