Tyler Zeller still has no timetable for his return from a recent appendectomy, and he isn't sure if he'll be ready for the start of the season.

Zeller had the surgery last Friday. He'll fill a backup center role behind Anderson Varejao (and eventually Andrew Bynum), and he has a steep climb to fantasy relevance this season.

Josh Richardson (shoulder) is starting Game 5 on Tuesday.

He made it though the pre-game warmups without any setbacks and just received clearance from the training staff. With Miami's season on the line, we wouldn't expect Richardson to have restrictions unless his shoulder acts up.

Semi Ojeleye is listed with the starters on Tuesday for Game 5.

Barring another late change, Ojeleye will move into the starting five in place of Aron Baynes. Coach Brad Stevens hinted that he was considering a change based on the matchup, and Ojeleye will give them a better defensive option on the likes of Giannis and Middleton. There aren't many fantasy implications here.

An MRI revealed a slight tear of the medial meniscus in Bogdan Bogdanovic's left knee, and he will undergo a minimally invasive meniscus debridement procedure on Tuesday.

We should get an official timetable for Bogdanovic's return date after the procedure is performed, but a knee scope isn't anything to be too terribly worried about and he'll have plenty of time to get himself ready for the 2018-19 season. After posting averages of 11.8 points, 3.3 dimes, 1.7 triples, 0.9 steals and 1.6 turnovers per game on 44.6% shooting during his rookie season, he'll be someone to think about snatching up towards the later rounds on draft day next year.

Marcus Smart (thumb) is a go for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Bucks.

Smart got through shootaround and his pregame routine without issue, so he'll be back in action following a six-week absence tonight, sporting a small splint on his surgically repaired right thumb. He's been informed by the Celtics medical staff that he's in no danger of suffering a setback, and said he's "not at all" concerned about being tentative in his first game back, although he could have a bit of a minutes limit as his conditioning might not be where it needs to be.

Jeff Teague (dislocated finger) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's Game 5 in Houston.

Teague hurt his finger during Monday's Game 4 loss, but he was available to return, and there was never much doubt about his availability for tomorrow's game. We'll have official confirmation on his status closer to Wednesday's tip.

Tyus Jones (right knee soreness) is questionable to play in Game 5 against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Jones sat out Monday's Game 4 loss, and it was Derrick Rose who was the primary beneficiary, logging 32 minutes off the bench. If he's again forced to the sidelines on Wednesday, it'll be Rose, Jeff Teague and Jamal Crawford divving up his minutes. Check back for another update following tomorrow's shootaround.

The NBA is reportedly reviewing Russell Westbrook's Game 4 incident, and deliberating whether or not a suspension is warrented for Game 5.

Westbrook was waiting to check in the game at the scorers table during the fourth quarter of the Game 4 loss, but got himself involved in an altercation between Raymond Felton and Rudy Gobert after a foul, stepping onto the court and slapping away Gobert's hand. Overall, this was a very minor incident, and while Westbrook did techinically leave the bench area, it would be absolutely shocking to see commisioner Adam Silver dish out a suspension for a crutial Game 5 in OKC. Stay tuned.
Apr 24 - 5:57 PM

John Henson (back soreness) did not travel with the team to Boston and has been ruled out of Tuesday's Game 5 vs. the Celtics.

Henson logged heavy minutes in Games 1 and 2, averaging 9.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. However, he was forced to sit out Games 3 and 4, and Tuesday will be his third straight contest on the sideline. Tyler Zeller has started, but Thon Maker has been the primary beneficiary. Maker is averaging 11.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.5 treys and 5.0 blocks in 27.6 minutes over the last two games. He is worthy DFS option on Tuesday.

Coach Brad Stevens said that Marcus Smart (thumb) has been physically cleared to play Game 5 on Tuesday, but his availability will depend on how he feels after a late-morning workout.

Speaking with reporters on Monday, Smart said the plan was to return for Game 6 and that they were on track. He is officially listed as questionable on the injury report. However, considering Smart's tenacity and eagerness to return, it would be somewhat surprising if he was cleared to play but decided to sit out. Starting point guard Terry Rozier told reporters: "I think he’s playing. But you didn’t hear it from me." If Smart does return, Shane Larkin will likely be bumped from the rotation.

Donovan Mitchell hit 13-of-28 shots and three 3-pointers for 33 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a block in 39 minutes to lead the Jazz to a 113-96 win over the Thunder in Monday's Game 4, giving the Jazz a 3-1 lead in the series.

Mitchell broke Karl Malone's team playoff scoring record for a rookie with his 33 points tonight, as Malone scored 31 points in a game back in 1986. These two teams hate each other and there were six technical fouls handed out tonight, but Mitchell managed to stay out of most of the drama. He doesn't look like a rookie, and really hasn't all year, and the Jazz will look to put away the Thunder in Oklahoma City in Game 5 on Wednesday. However, a more likely scenario would be the Jazz ending the series in Game 6 back at home. Mitchell is a much needed offensive force on a team that thrives by playing defense, and this series has been the most entertaining matchup of the playoffs thus far.
Apr 24 - 1:18 AM

James Harden hit 12-of-26 shots, five 3-pointers and 7-of-7 free throws on his way to 36 points, four rebounds, three assists, four steals and a block in Monday's 119-100 win over the Wolves in Game 4, giving Houston a 3-1 lead in the series.

The Rockets scored 50 points (and hit nine 3-pointers) in the third quarter, which was the second most points in a quarter of a playoff game of all time, as the 1962 Lakers scored 51 points in a quarter. The Wolves only scored 20 in that one, turning a one-point deficit for Minnesota into a 31-point lead for the Rockets, who never looked back. Harden didn't really look like himself in Games 2 and 3, but was back to his old tricks tonight. The Rockets will look to end this series at home on Wednesday.
