Josh McRoberts has been given a Flagrant-2 foul and fined $20,000 for elbowing LeBron James during Wednesday's game.

The Bobcats are fortunate that their starting PF avoided a suspension, as he crushed LeBron's throat without making any real play on the ball. The Bobcats face a daunting 0-2 deficit in their first round series, and they'll look to gain some traction at home for Game 3 on Saturday.

Monta Ellis dropped a game-high 31 points to help the Mavericks win at home on Sunday, hitting 13-of-21 field goals and 3-of-5 free throws with two 3-pointers.

Ellis turned the ball over five times but he also had six rebounds, three assists and one steal. He looked very comfortable as the Mavs' unquestioned go-to offensive player with both Rajon Rondo and Chandler Parsons out of commission, and his usage rate (28.1 percent on Sunday) should be through the roof again during Tuesday's Game 5 in Houston.

Tyson Chandler was on a mission during Sunday's win vs. the Rockets, piling up 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting, 14 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He made only 2-of-6 free throws and Dallas as a team was an abysmal 9-of-21 at the line, but they still racked up 121 points to make it a 3-1 series vs. the heavily-favored Rockets. Chandler's double-digit scoring is a bonus for the Mavs, who could live with zero points as long as the former Defensive Player of the Year stays active on the glass -- Dallas won tonight's battle of the boards 52-38.

Kevin Love (dislocated shoulder) will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his injury, but ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports that he will likely miss "a minimum of two weeks."

It seems inevitable that Love will miss games in the second round of the playoffs. We'll await test results before jumping to any far-reaching conclusions, but Tristan Thompson is likely to see the biggest boost if Love is forced to miss any time. James Jones, Mike Miller and possibly Shawn Marion could also see their roles increased, especially if J.R. Smith is suspended for blatantly hitting Jae Crowder in the face on Sunday. Check back on Monday for updates on Love's status.

Paul Pierce torched the visiting Raptors once more on Sunday, dropping 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting with four 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in only 22 minutes.

Prior to knowing that his team would definitely face the Wizards in the playoffs, DeMar DeRozan told reporters, "I hope we see Paul Pierce." He may rue those words, however, as Pierce was in vintage form during the Wizards' first round sweep -- he averaged 16.0 points and 3.3 triples while making 53.8 percent of his attempts. He'll get at least a few days to rest before returning to action vs. the winner of the Hawks vs. Nets series.

Bradley Beal logged a team-high 36 minutes in Sunday's series-clinching victory, scoring 23 points with three 3-pointers, five assists, four steals and only one turnover.

Beal shot 5-of-15 from the field but he made up the difference with a 10-of-11 mark from the free throw line. He averaged 2.6 free throws per game during the regular season but that's increased to 4.7 per game in the playoffs. Postseason physicality and the Raptors' matchup problems are big reasons for the leap, but it's also a testament to Beal's aggressiveness offensively -- he's been in attack mode with 17.5 shot attempts per game.

Amir Johnson scored four points, grabbed three rebounds and blocked one shot in 26 minutes during Sunday's Game 4 defeat vs. the Wizards.

Johnson heads into unrestricted free agency this summer and there's a good chance he won't return to Toronto, where he's spent six of his 10 seasons in the NBA. He was limited by nagging injuries for most of the 2014-15 season but still played in 75 games this season, one reason he was able to crack the top-100 in 8-cat and 9-cat fantasy leagues.
Apr 26 - 9:51 PM

Tim Duncan had 22 points (8-of-13 FGs and 6-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in a losing effort on Sunday, as the Spurs fell at home 105-114.

Duncan got off to a slow start but he was as terrific as ever today, and he racked up a few more records that highlight his longevity -- he's the only player to log 9,000+ minutes in the NBA playoffs, and passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for third place in most postseason appearances (trailing only Robert Horry and Derek Fisher).
Apr 26 - 7:51 PM

Mike Conley will have surgery on Monday to repair multiple facial fractures and his timetable for recovery is uncertain.

TNT's Lewis Johnson broke the news. We already know that Conley will not play in Game 4, leaving Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes to run the PG spot, and his availability for a potential second-round matchup should be determined after the surgery. Russell Westbrook missed only one game after having facial surgery in early March but that's an exception, and the nature of Conley's multiple fractures will determine the length of his absence. Stay tuned.
Apr 26 - 7:36 PM

Matt Barnes was hampered by fouls and a shoulder injury throughout Sunday's game, which he finished with only four points on 2-of-8 shooting, two rebounds, two assists and one steal.

The bright side for L.A. is that Austin Rivers, Jamal Crawford and Glen Davis all played very well for the Clippers' much-maligned bench unit, contributing to an impressive 114-105 win in San Antonio. Barnes has been struggling to score this series (5.2 points per game on 28.6 percent shooting) but his versatility and infectious energy are key to the Clippers' success. He vowed to play in Game 5 despite dealing with a strained rotator cuff.
Apr 26 - 7:34 PM

Blake Griffin grabbed a playoff career-high 19 rebounds to help the Clippers even their first-round series at 2-2, adding 20 points, seven assists and one steal.

Griffin turned the ball over just once in 43 minutes and continues to be a problem matchup for the Spurs, who don't have a big man able to defend him one-on-one or keep him off the glass. He had 109 touches in Game 4, easily the most of any player on either team, and will play just as central a role during Tuesday's crucial Game 5.
Apr 26 - 7:26 PM

Austin Rivers was fantastic for the Clippers during their Game 4 win over the Spurs on Sunday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting through just 17 minutes of action.

As per usual, Rivers didn't do much aside from score (one assist, one steal, and one turnover), but he did give the Clippers' bench a major lift, and he was a big part of LA's win today. Rivers has actually been coming on for the Clippers lately, scoring in double figures in his last two outings, but he's still not much of a fantasy option as scoring is his only asset. It'll be very interesting to see if he can have a repeat performance during Game 5 on Tuesday.
