Jeremy Lin (back spasms) said he will play against the Mavericks on Monday.

"I'll be good for tomorrow," Lin said. "It's been a long time. I'm excited to get back." The Rockets took a massive blow on Saturday with Patrick Beverley breaking his hand and they are now very likely to be putting Lin back into the starting lineup. Aaron Brooks is still worth a look as a sixth-man kind of player while Lin seems like a strong play in a five-game week for his fantasy owners.

LeBron James (leg) confirmed that he'll be good to go for Sunday's Game 7 in Boston.

"It’s been better, but I’ll be ready tonight," said James of his right leg. Larry Nance fell back into James' leg during Game 6, but LBJ played through it, and that's exactly what he'll do tonight with Cleveland's season on the line. He didn't sit out a single game during his age-32 season, and Game 7 will mark his 100th game of the year, tying the most games he's ever played in a single season.

Jeff Green will start Game 7 against the Celtics on Sunday.

He'll replace Kevin Love and start his first game since Game 1 of the first round against Indiana. Green logged 31 minutes in Game 6, his most of the playoffs. He had 14 points, but he'll probably have to score at least that much if the Cavs want to advance to the NBA Finals for a fourth straight year.

Stephen Curry scored 29 points during a 115-86 victory in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday, adding five rebounds, six assists, five 3-pointers and matching a postseason career-high three blocks.

He started off slow but picked it up in the second half hitting four 3-pointers and scoring 16 points. This was a statement game for Curry and it’s no secret that the Warriors are at their best when Steph is running the offense. The Rockets certainly knew that as they held the Warriors to 93.0 points per game in the previous two as they kept the passes down, but Steph dominated during the second half as the Warriors crushed Houston 64-25 in the second half. Curry is averaging 30.2 points per game inside Oracle this series compared to just 18.6 in Houston, so we'll see if that trend continues in a critical Game 7 on Monday.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com, the chances of Chris Paul (hamstring) playing in Game 7 on Monday are "less likely than likely, but working every angle to try."

You don't hear that verbiage on an injury too often, but it still seems like he's closer to doubtful than anything else. Without Paul, even at home, the Rockets will have an uphill battle ahead of them to make it to their first NBA Finals since 1995. We'll know more after he's re-evaluated once the team returns to Houston.

Klay Thompson scored 35 points, making 9-of-14 3-pointers with six rebounds, two assists and four steals in Game 6 against the Rockets on Saturday.

He loves Game 6 elimination games. You might remember Klay going off for 19 points in the fourth at OKC in Game 6 during the 2016 Western Conference Finals, and he was asked about it after the game. "I don't wanna go home. We worked too hard this season to go home," Klay said after tonight's win. This is the first time both Conference Finals have reached a Game 7 since 1979. Back then there was no 3-point line, but there will be plenty of those in Houston on Monday when Klay and the Dubs come to town.

Andre Iguodala (leg) said he considers himself questionable on Monday against the Rockets.

There really hasn't been much optimism on Iguodala. Coach Steve Kerr said today that he wouldn't play him until he can run, and he's also having trouble moving laterally. The Warriors really couldn't find a fifth option until the second half, so maybe Kerr mixes it up. Expect to see Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston, Nick Young and maybe even Pat McCaw see some run.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

James Harden scored 32 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, three steals, four 3-pointers and a postseason-high nine turnovers in a 115-86 Game 6 loss against the Warriors on Saturday.

He did all he could to keep Houston in this game, but the Rockets had 21 turnovers as the biggest problem today. Harden now has five career playoff games with at least nine turnovers, giving him the most such games ever (LeBron James has three). On the plus side, Harden was able to snap out of a brutal 0-of-22 slump from deep with a couple treys in the first quarter. He'll need it to come together in Game 7 at Toyota Center on Monday.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

Clint Capela scored two points (1-of-4 FG, 0-of-2 FT) with 16 rebounds and an assist in Houston's 115-86 Game 6 loss to Golden State on Saturday.

He didn't score until the 5:58 mark in the fourth quarter and the Rockets were -32 when he was on the floor. This was his lowest scoring game of the postseason and worst +/- of the entire season. Capela was big on the boards, but he'll need a better performance in Game 7 if the Rockets want to win.
May 26 - 11:23 PM

Kevon Looney is getting another start in Game 6 on Saturday.

He'll be out there with the other four All-Stars for the third time in a row as Andre Iguodala (leg) recovers). Looney likely won't have as much defensive pressure on him in this game because he won't have to get switched on to Chris Paul (hamstring), but the Rockets almost certainly will try to put him on James Harden when they can. Looney has scored four points in each of last three games with little else, so the bar isn't very high in DFS.
May 26 - 8:22 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute will return to the rotation on Saturday against the Warriors.

The Rockets were basically running a 6.5-man rotation before the Chris Paul (hamstring) injury, so now it looks like Mbah a Moute will be stepping in as the seventh man with Gerald Green on the bench. It's possible that coach Mike D'Antoni keeps LMAM on a shorter leash given his struggles, but he could get 15-20 minutes at Oracle this evening.
May 26 - 7:39 PM

Andre Iguodala (leg) will not play in Game 6 on Saturday, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

He is still day-to-day, but the team still has concerns about how he's healed from his injury in Game 3. With him out, the Warriors shouldn't be in dire straits with perimeter defense this time because Chris Paul is out, as well. We should still see Kevon Looney in the starting lineup while Jordan Bell, Shaun Livingston and Quinn Cook help out on the bench.
