Stephen Curry (concussion) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

It will be his second game on the sidelines and it's not a surprise based on how the NBA treats concussions. He should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Blazers. The Warriors will likely use their lineup of Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, David Lee and Andrew Bogut tonight.

Head coach Doc Rivers said that he doubts Chris Paul will be able to play in Game 2 vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

Paul will likely be a game-time decision tonight, and he will reportedly test out his hamstring prior to tip-off. The Clippers have already stolen home-court advantage from the Rockets, so it would make some sense to hold CP3 out if he isn't ready. Austin Rivers will likely draw another start if Paul sits, but Blake Griffin will be the primary beneficiary after logging a triple-double in Game 1 with 26 points, 14 boards, 13 assists and one steal. Paul has made progress and will do everything he can to play tonight, but his owners will have to stay on alert for an update.

Alan Anderson may need to have surgery on his ankle this summer to clean up some bone spurs.

It isn't clear how much time he would miss if he decided to undergo surgery, but we will update his status as soon as we know more. Anderson is set to become a free agent and all indications point to him leaving Brooklyn, so we will continue to follow this story closely. At this point in his career, Anderson likely wouldn't have a substantial role regardless of where he lands.

Nets general manager Billy King was not happy with the season Brooklyn had and said that he will explore all options this summer.

King reportedly met with head coach Lionel Hollins for five hours to talk about the roster, and he made it pretty obvious that the Nets could make some trades this summer. King wants to build around Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young moving forward, but it should be noted that both players hold player options for next season (though both players seem intent on staying in Brooklyn). Deron Williams and Joe Johnson could be shopped around in trade talks, and the Nets will likely try to move up in the draft as well. Head coach Lionel Hollins' job is safe for now, but another poor showing next season could change things.

Derrick Rose said that he hasn't felt any lingering effects from his shoulder injury, and he is ready to go for Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Rose was never really in danger of missing any action, but it's nice to have confirmation that he is feeling better well before tip-off. Rose scored 25 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in Game 1, and he will try to help the Bulls take a commanding 2-0 series lead over the Cavaliers tonight. Get him in your lineup.

John Wall will seek another opinion on his injured wrist prior to Game 3 on Saturday.

Wall has already been evaluated by two different doctors, and the good news is that he isn't dealing with any breaks, fractures, ligament or structural damage. He tried to warmup and play in Game 2, but his wrist was causing him too much discomfort. "It's real, real tough. I came and did what I usually do before the games, try to do like more ball-handling, trying to pound it. Real tough to do," Wall said. "It's a real, real bad sprain." The Wizards don't play again until Saturday, so Wall should have plenty of time to recover and hopefully the swelling in his wrist will start to subside. If he can't play, Ramon Sessions will have to step up again after dropping 21 points in Game 2 on Tuesday.

Tristan Thompson will move into the starting lineup for Game 2 against the Bulls on Wednesday, sending Mike Miller back to the bench.

The move makes a lot of sense for the Cavaliers, as they will now match up better with the Bulls' imposing frontcourt tandem of Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah. In 15 previous starts in the regular season, Thompson averaged 12.6 points, 9.7 boards and 0.9 blocks per game, so he is certainly worth a look in daily leagues.
May 6 - 9:07 AM

Tony Allen racked up four steals during Tuesday's impressive win at Golden State, adding nine points, four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

Few things in the NBA are better than the Grindfather in playoffs-mode. Throughout the game, Allen followed up key defensive plays by turning to the TNT announcers and yelling, "First-Team All Defense!" It's hard to argue after tonight's display and Allen has even picked up the pace offensively in the second round, averaging 12.0 points on 55.6 percent shooting in two games vs. the Warriors. When asked if he'd prefer to defend Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, Allen replied, "It really don't matter. I'm paid to be a defender, and I'm ready to defend."

Stephen Curry received his league MVP award prior to Game 2 on Tuesday but the celebration didn't last long, as the Warriors fell 90-97 to tie their second-round series at 1-1.

Curry shot 2-of-11 from downtown and 7-of-19 overall, adding five rebounds, six assists, three turnovers and zero defensive stats. He missed some shots he normally makes but he was also harried on the perimeter by the Grizzlies' defense, including an unreal play from Tony Allen which you can watch via the link below.

Mike Conley (facial surgery) thrived in his return during Game 2, scoring 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting with three 3-pointers and three assists to help the Grizzlies pull out a rare win in Oracle Arena.

Conley's sprained right foot is a lingering issue, his left eye remains swollen and red after recent facial surgery, he was exhausted due to a lack of conditioning, and he finished the game in obvious pain due to apparent cramping in his left calf. The good news is that he survived a hit to the face from Draymond Green and none of the above ailments prevented him from playing 27 brilliant minutes at the NBA's highest level of competition. All signs point to him being ready on Saturday, when the series shifts to Memphis for Game 3.
May 6 - 1:40 AM

John Wall described his left wrist injury as a "really bad sprain" and decided not to play in Game 2 because he couldn't dribble effectively.

Wall will receive treatment over the next three off-days to reduce the swelling in his wrist and his status for Game 3 may not be known until Saturday. It's worth mentioning that new reports say Wall was doubtful to play in Game 2 all along, even though multiple sources said he would play and coach Randy Wittman confirmed his status just 90 minutes before tip-off. If Wall does miss another game, Ramon Sessions cemented his status as the fill-in starter with a 21-point performance on Tuesday.
May 5 - 11:26 PM

Ramon Sessions poured in a playoff-career-high 21 points as a fill-in starter for John Wall (wrist) during Game 2, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and four assists.

Wall nearly suited up tonight and the Wizards don't play again until Saturday, so there's a chance this will be Sessions' only start of the series. He did all that he could tonight but as a natural scorer he can't replace Wall's extraordinary playmaking, and his scoring was all for naught as the Wizards fell 90-106 on the road.
