Unrestricted free agent Josh McRoberts is "emerging as a serious free agent candidate" for the Heat, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

The Heat are likely hoping to get McRoberts on a full mid-level exception. McRoberts declined his $2.8 million option and should get a bigger deal after a terrific 2013-14 season. The Hornets/Bobcats have drafted a power forward in the lottery in each of the last two seasons, so they may not make a very compelling offer. Still, the Hornets are probably the favorite to bring him back.

Cory Joseph started the third quarter for Jonas Valanciunas on Thursday.

When you only score 30 points in the first half, it's time for a change. The Raptors are going to need threes in a hurry, so that likely explains the move.

Zach Randolph and James Ennis will start for JaMychal Green and Wayne Selden in Game 3 on Thursday.

Coach David Fizdale said there could be lineup changes coming, and he's not messing around this time. The Grizzlies did have some luck with their Z-Bo lineups and really any change makes sense after they were thumped in the first two games. Expect Randolph to see minutes in the upper 20s.

C.J. Miles is set to start for Game 3 against the Cavs on Thursday.

This will move Monta Ellis to the bench. The Cavs have been causing the Pacers to switch a lot, so getting Miles out there adds some size to help prevent LeBron James getting a small on him. Miles should be looking at minutes in the 20s, so he could be an interesting option. Of course, he's one of the most inconsistent players as a starter.
Apr 20 - 6:15 PM

J.R. Smith (hamstring) will start against the Pacers for Game 3 on Thursday.

He did not play in the second half in Game 2 due to a hamstring issue. Coach Ty Lue said he wasn't sure on the restriction for Smith, but there's a decent chance he won't be able to get to his 37 minutes from Game 1. If he is limited, that should mean more minutes for Kyle Korver and Iman Shumpert.
Apr 20 - 5:41 PM

Grizzlies' head coach David Fizdale confirmed that he will tweak his starting lineup for Thursday's Game 3 against the Spurs.

Fizdale wouldn't say exactly who will be moving into the starting five, but both James Ennis and Zach Randolph are the most obvious potential candidates considering JaMychal Green and Wayne Seldon haven't done much of anything as starters. Randolph also started the second half of Game 2, and finished with 18 points, 10 boards, one assist and three steals in 36 minutes, so he could be on the radar as a potential low-budget DFS option tonight.

Brad Stevens hinted that he may consider tweaking his starting lineup for Friday's Game 3 in Chicago.

"We’ve got to space [the floor] better than we have," Stevens said. "We’ve got to focus on our direction on drive and kicking. If we can’t get a finish, kicking it out and making the next right play for the next guy, then you’ve got to knock down shots." Amir Johnson has done a whole lot of nothing as Boston's starting four-man, and with Stevens emphasizing the need for better spacing, maybe he'll consider bringing Jonas Jerebko into the starting five as he did during last year's playoff run after falling into a 0-2 hole against Atlanta. Stay tuned.

Cavs' head coach Tyronn Lue said that J.R. Smith (hamstring) will be in the starting lineup if he's cleared to play in Game 3 against the Pacers on Thursday.

Smith was reportedly moving around well during Wednesday's practice, and he's stated on more than a few occasions that if it were up to him, he'd be out there, so perhaps the Cavs medical staff will allow him to play tonight. He'll likely be a game-time call, but if he is able to get back out there, Iman Shumpert won't play much more than 20 minutes. Stay tuned.
Apr 20 - 11:00 AM

C.J. McCollum (ankle) struggled in 30 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-17 from the field for 11 points, one 3-pointer, five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

The postseason has been a tale of two games for McCollum, who was terrific in Game 1 but lousy in a lopsided defeat tonight. McCollum's ankle injury might have played a role but credit is also due to the Warriors' defense, and in particular Klay Thompson. McCollum gets two days to rest before Game 3 in Portland.
Apr 20 - 1:35 AM

James Harden went 18-of-20 from the FT line and 7-of-17 from the field to finish Houston's Game 2 victory with 35 points, eight assists, four rebounds and one steal.

The showdown between Harden and fellow MVP candidate Russell Westbrook was as-advertised tonight. Westbrook scored 51 points while posting yet another triple-double, and Harden's big line was bolstered by super-subs Lou Williams (21 points) and Eric Gordon (22 points). Patrick Beverley was also terrific, notching 15 points on 6-of-9 shooting, six boards, four assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 34 minutes. The Rockets are a handful, to say the least.
Apr 19 - 10:59 PM

Enes Kanter played only eight minutes during Wednesday's loss in Houston, making 2-of-4 shots for four points with three blocks and one rebound.

Billy Donovan appeared to tell an assistant during Game 1, "Can't play Kanter," after his backup big man blew a defensive assignment. Kanter's role did indeed shrink tonight with OKC carefully choosing the moments they used him, which led to a bigger role for Jerami Grant (nine points, five rebounds, two blocks in 26 minutes). OKC had this game under control until the fourth quarter, so presumably Kanter will be limited again in Game 3.
Apr 19 - 10:57 PM

Russell Westbrook was phenomenal for most of Wednesday's tough Game 2 defeat, scoring a career playoff-high 51 points (17-of-43 FGs, 15-of-18 FTs) with 13 assists, 10 rebounds, four steals and one block.

Westbrook had his usual handful of uniquely dominant plays, including a block that he converted into a nifty layup at the other end (see the link below). He nearly triple-doubled in the first half alone, but fatigue might have been a factor during his rough fourth quarter, which included an 0-of-7 stretch from the field. He's an absolute force of nature, and needless to say his DFS owners were thrilled with the end result tonight.
