Kirk Hinrich (stiff back) didn't participate in Monday's shootaround and he will be a game-time decision vs. the Magic.

Marquis Teague had seven points, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 28 minutes on Saturday, while D.J. Augustin added five points and six assists off the bench. Neither guy is a very compelling fantasy option, especially with Hinrich potentially ready to return.

Al Jefferson (foot) went to the locker room with about two minutes left in the first quarter of Wednesday's game.

His strained plantar fascia is clearly bothering him. He's been slow getting up and down in transition while he has very little agility. Jefferson could be out for the game or he could be getting treatment, but this definitely spells trouble for the Bobcats.

Tim Duncan's right knee is fine for Game 2 on Wednesday, according to coach Gregg Popovich.

There has been no reason to worry about his status after banging knees with Monta Ellis on Sunday. Duncan was dynamite in Game 1's win and touched the ball 13 times within 12 feet of the basket excluding drives, which is far and away the most in the playoffs by any player -- four players tied for second with an average of 8.0. The Mavericks will have their work cut out for themselves.

Al Jefferson (foot) is listed as a starter against the Heat in Wednesday's Game 2.

He went through warmups for about 10 minutes with coach Patrick Ewing and reportedly looked to be doing so without a limp, according to Charlotte beat writer Rick Bonnell. Jefferson may have had a pain-killing shot and he might get another one after showing up to the arena in a walking boot. The Heat will likely test Jefferson and we'll know quickly how he looks tonight.

Mario Chalmers (knee) will play against the Bobcats for Wednesday's Game 2.

He was a game-time call for tonight due to a bruised knee and it sounds like he's ready to start. Coach Erik Spoelstra was asked about Chalmers' status about 30 minutes before this update and he said he was in "wait" mode, so Chalmers is likely not quite 100 percent. If for some reason his knee bothers him, Toney Douglas and Norris Cole would step up.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel may be "coaching for his job" in the first round of the playoffs, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Pacers' organization is understandably concerned about their late-season plummet, though they still secured the first seed in the East and head to Atlanta with their first-round matchup tied 1-1. Lance Stephenson has been grating on his teammates and Roy Hibbert is playing like a shell of himself, and Pacers president Larry Bird suggested in March that it's ultimately Vogel's responsibility to fix things. "We do have to stay the course," he said. "But I also think he's got to start going after guys when they're not doing what they're supposed to do." Vogel has benched players for rest and altered his defensive approach vs. the Hawks, but all eyes remain on the Pacers as they head to Atlanta for Game 3.

Goran Dragic was named the NBA's Most Improved Player for 2013-14 on Wednesday.

Dragic averaged numerous career-highs with 20.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game, though his brilliant season wasn't enough for the Suns to make the playoffs. He posted a True Shooting percentage of 60.4 percent which trailed only Stephen Curry among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game, and he's poised for another huge season with the Suns before likely opting for free agency in 2015. Lance Stephenson finished second in MIP voting, while Anthony Davis finished third.

Mario Chalmers (bruised knee) participated in the walkthrough portion of Wednesday's shootaround and he remains a game-time decision for Game 2.

"We're trying to keep him off his feet as much as possible," said coach Erik Spoelstra. He played through the injury during Game 1, finishing with seven points in 25 minutes, but if he can't suit up the Heat will deploy either Norris Cole or Toney Douglas as a fill-in starting PG.

Bradley Beal bounced back from an off game and hit 9-of-20 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block as the Wizards beat the Bulls again in Chicago on Tuesday, taking an improbable 2-0 lead as the series shifts to Washington for Game 3.

If you had the Wizards up 2-0 at this point, congratulations are in order. This one went to overtime as the Wizards pulled off a nice, late comeback, and then saw Kirk Hinrich miss a pair of free throws at the end of overtime to give the Wizards the win. Beal was just 3-of-11 for 13 points in Game 1 and the Bulls have already been backed into a corner against the upstart Wizards.

DeMar DeRozan hit 9-of-21 shots and 12-of-14 free throws for 30 points, three rebounds, two assists, six turnovers and five personal fouls in Tuesday's 100-95 win over the Nets in Game 2 to tie their series 1-1.

DeRozan was seen pouting at the end of the bench, ignoring his team's huddle after he picked up his fifth foul, but came back strong to hit some big buckets and help the Raptors get the win. This game was back and forth all night, and the Raptors got a game they needed to have as the series heads to Brooklyn for the next two games. DeRozan had 17 in the fourth quarter tonight.
Apr 22 - 10:21 PM

Paul George hit 9-of-16 shots and five 3-pointers for 27 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, four steals, a block and just one turnover in Tuesday's easy 101-85 Game 2 win over the Hawks to tie their series at 1-1.

George was great tonight and the Pacers dominated the third quarter after being down four at halftime. They went on a 17-0 run and won the game easily, despite not getting much from Roy Hibbert (1-of-7 shooting) and Lance Stephenson (seven points). The series heads to Atlanta for Game 3 on Thursday.
Apr 22 - 9:36 PM

Jeremy Lin (illness) did not practice with the Rockets on Tuesday.

Lin played 34 minutes in the Rockets' Game 1 loss to the Blazers on Sunday, scoring 14 points and grabbing six rebounds. The Rockets need Lin's scoring off the bench, and his ability to be the third ball-handler behind James Harden and Patrick Beverley. If the Rockets want to even the series, they will need a productive Lin in Game 2 on Wednesday.
