Gordon Hayward nearly triple-doubled with 18 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and a game-tying 3-pointer with 22.9 seconds left on Friday against the Suns.

Hayward and fellow extension-shunned Eric Bledsoe went toe-to-toe at the end of the game, and it was Bledsoe that came out on top as Hayward gave him a bit too much space for Bledsoe's game-winning answer with time essentially expiring. Still, this was the type of game that had Hayward, Bledsoe, Derrick Favors (14 points, career-high tying 17 boards, four assists) and Enes Kanter (20 points, 12 boards) all sky high on draft boards.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 20 - 12:36 PM

John Henson (back soreness) is doubtful for Friday's Game 3 vs. Boston.

This is the first we've heard a back issue for Henson. He logged over 37 minutes in each of the first two games of this series, averaging 9.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. The Bucks will lose their best rim protector if Henson is unable to suit up on Friday night. Thon Maker and Tyler Zeller would see a significant uptick in minutes in his absence. Milwaukee might also choose to go small, and give Jabari Parker additional playing time.
Apr 20 - 10:49 AM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Game 3 Friday vs. the Wizards.

VanVleet returned to the Raps lineup for Game 2 on Tuesday, but logged just three minutes. Coach Dwane Casey said he "just wasn't' ready." However, FVV told reporters on Thursday that he plans to play in Game 3. "You're gonna have to cut my arm off to get me to not feel like I can play," VanVleet said. C.J. Miles and Delon Wright have played very well off the bench, so Toronto hasn't missed VanVleet yet. We should have an update on his status after Friday's shootaround.

Kevin Durant scored 26 points during a 110-97 win over the Spurs on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

He did tweak his left ankle as he was going for loose ball and he did not return. Although, he didn't have a bad limp and the Warriors had the game in hand. Ankle injuries have been a major problem for the Warriors this year, but for now this one doesn't sound serious. As for the Warriors team, they've now won 18 straight Western Conference games and will go for the sweep on Sunday.

Anthony Davis scored 28 points with 11 boards, two assists, three steals, two blocks and no turnovers in 36 minutes during a 119-102 win over the Blazers to take a dominating 3-0 lead in the series on Thursday.

He did have to go to the locker room at the end of the first quarter because of a minor left thumb injury, but returned for his normal playing time -- he checked out with 7:05 in the fourth thanks to garbage time. Davis did also take a shot to his right side near the basket, but he stayed in the game to shoot the free throws. The Pelicans have some important pieces around AD and their perimeter defense has made The Brow even more valuable as a rim protector. We might get a long series against the Warriors in the second round, assuming the Pelicans win just one more game in their series with the Blazers. Game 4 is at New Orleans on Saturday.
