Timberwolves trade F Derrick Williams to Kings for F Luc Mbah a Moute.

Williams could suddenly have some value, especially if he can play some small forward for the Kings, although he should log minutes at both forward spots. Just beware that it might be 10 days or so before he becomes relevant for his new team, while it doesn't sound like he'll play before Friday. Mbah a Moute will have to have some luck to make a big splash, although a timeshare with starter Corey Brewer could eventually happen.

Marc Gasol scored 25 points with seven boards, four assists and three blocks in a decisive win over the Blazers on Saturday to give the Grizzlies a 3-0 series lead.

Gasol shot just 6-of-17 from the field, but he was a bully in the paint and held Robin Lopez to just four points and four boards on the night. The Grizzlies will look to sweep the series on Monday in Portland, but it might be a lot tougher than they think if Mike Conley (eye) is unable to suit up for that one.

Mike Conley will not be able to return to Game 3 against the Blazers on Saturday after taking an inadvertent elbow to the eye, and he is expected to go to a local medical facility for additional tests.

His left eye is reportedly very swollen, and it was obvious that he was in a lot of discomfort when he left the floor. It's possible that Conley could be forced to miss some time, but we should know more after we hear the results of the tests. If Conley does end up missing some action, Beno Udrih (ankle) should be ready to go for Game 4 and would likely start, while Nick Calathes will have to step up as well.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a 4-0 series sweep during a 109-98 win over the Pelicans on Saturday, scoring 39 points with eight rebounds, nine assists, one steal and six 3-pointers.

He sure is putting those extra minutes to good use. In the four games in the playoffs, Curry averaged 33.8 points, 5.3 boards, 7.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 5.0 treys in 39.8 minutes per game. His 20 treys in this series set an NBA record for a sweep. The Warriors look unbeatable right now and they'll get the winner of the Grizzlies-Blazers series.

Draymond Green scored 20 of his 22 points in the first half during Saturday's win over the Pelicans, adding 10 rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

What a series. In the four wins, Green averaged 15.8 points, 12.8 boards, 6.3 dimes, 1.3 blocks, 2.5 steals and 1.5 treys. He's one of a handful of players who brings the ball up and now he's played at least 40 minutes in every game this postseason. Dray broke out in the postseason last year and he's breaking out on top of his breakout season again.

Anthony Davis had another explosion on the stat sheet during a Game 4 109-98 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 36 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 40 minutes.

The Pelicans' season is over and they had no chance against the powerhouse Warriors. Davis played his last five games against the Warriors (four times) and Spurs (once) and came away with averages of 31.4 points, 11.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 3.0 blocks on 52.2 percent from the field. There's no doubt he has the highest upside in fantasy next season and the only concern will be his health. He's absolutely a candidate to be the top pick in drafts next season.
Apr 25 - 10:41 PM

Eric Gordon scored 29 points during a Game 4 loss against the Warriors on Saturday with three rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Even though the Pelicans were swept, they had a nice season. Gordon was a very pleasant surprise, playing 61 games with averages of 13.4 points, 2.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.3 treys. He played in every game since Jan. 5 and was a great pickup for fantasy owners. Still, just one season of staying relatively healthy isn't enough to consider him in the middle rounds of fantasy drafts next season.
Apr 25 - 10:37 PM

Beno Udrih (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He tried to warm up, but never really had much of a chance to play. Udrih will likely be ready for Game 4 while Nick Calathes will be the backup to Mike Conley tonight.
Apr 25 - 9:50 PM

Beno Udrih (ankle) is warming up for Saturday, but is still not expected to play.

He's likely just going to see if he's suddenly feeling a lot better. Udrih said earlier today that he's likely just going to rest up for Game 4. We'll have an update soon.
Apr 25 - 9:38 PM

O.J. Mayo was terrific on the wing against the Bulls during a Game 4 win on Saturday, scoring 18 points with three rebounds, four assists, four steals and four 3-pointers on 6-of-11 from the field in 24 minutes.

He hit some clutch shots down the stretch and coach Jason Kidd continues to trust Mayo when it counts. That certainly wasn't the case with Larry Drew last year. He's obviously nowhere near being in the conversation for Most Improved Player, but Mayo's improvement from the disastrous 2013-14 campaign is worth noticing. Expect him to have a similar role with less efficiency in Game 5 on Monday.
Apr 25 - 9:05 PM

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) will start against the Grizzlies in Game 3 on Saturday.

He said on Friday that he's not 100 percent, but he has been able to go through practice. Afflalo hasn't played well whatsoever, so it should be interesting to see how tight of a leash coach Terry Stotts will have on him. Allen Crabbe will lose a ton of minutes while C.J. McCollum could lose a handful, too.
Apr 25 - 8:58 PM

Jimmy Butler was the best player on the court during a Game 4 92-90 loss to the Bucks on Saturday, scoring a playoff career-high 33 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

In four 2015 playoff games, he's set a new career high for scoring three times, which is crazy considering he played in 20 postseason games before last week. Butler made 12-of-17 from the field and was red hot in the third quarter, but the Bulls didn't lean on him nearly as much as they should have in the fourth. That may change in Game 4 on Monday. He's shaping up to be a top-20 pick in fantasy next season.
