Byron Scott has agreed to terms with the Lakers and will be their head coach.

It will be a four-year, $17 million deal for the former Nets, Hornets and Cavs head coach. The Lakers interviewed him way back in May and he's been the frontrunner for the job for a long time. Scott has plenty of street cred as a former member of the Lakers in their championship Showtime years, so the fans should cut him some slack. He'll have his hands full with little depth on his team, especially in the frontcourt.

After scoring 20 points with one rebound, four assists and four 3-pointers on Wednesday, Klay Thompson (ear laceration) said he was "a little dizzy" in a post-game interview on ESPN.

He needed three stitches to his ear to stop the bleeding, but it's certainly troubling to hear he was dizzy following the game. Thompson didn't need a concussion test despite taking a very tough blow to his head. He also was in foul trouble tonight with four of the five being of the inexcusable variety. Klay won't be able to get away with that vs. the Cavs, assuming he's healthy. Thompson scored 18.5 points per game against the Cavs this season in his two games, so it's fair to expect him to average over 20 with extra playing time. We'll also be tracking Klay in the next couple days to make sure he's fine.

Festus Ezeli scored a playoff career-high 12 points against the Rockets on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes.

Andrew Bogut was in foul trouble and the Warriors were lucky to get a massive game out of their backup center. Ezeli was only playing 7.5 minutes per game in these playoffs before this win and he's likely earned some extra playing time in the NBA Finals. Considering how much LeBron James likes to get into the paint, the Warriors are likely going to have some fouling issues. Of course, don't expect Festus to play this much.

James Harden turned the ball over an NBA Playoffs record 13 times during a 104-90 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, adding 14 points with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and no 3-pointers.

To make matters worse, he was just 2-of-11 from the field in what may have been his worst game of his season. Although, Houston's worst stretch tonight was with Harden on the bench. They just went up against a better team and Harden's Rockets should be able to make another playoff run next year. He'll be a top-three pick in fantasy leagues next season, as well.

Klay Thompson suffered an ear laceration on Wednesday and will return.

The Warriors dodged another concussion bullet and Klay didn't even need concussion testing, according to ESPN's Doris Burke. It looks like he'll be ready for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Dwight Howard picked up his seventh technical foul of the postseason on Wednesday.

If this technical is not rescinded, he would be suspended for Game 6 in Houston. Of course, the Rockets would have to win tonight's game for this to be relevant.

Shelvin Mack will have surgery on his right shoulder.

The Hawks are really, really banged up with the season ending. Mack separated his shoulder and the surgery should take place next week. He'll be nothing more than a backup next season.
May 27 - 9:37 PM

Kyle Korver had right ankle surgery on Wednesday and will be out for three months.

He had surgery to repair ligament damage and should be back for training camp. Teams took a different approach on Korver during the postseason and did a much better job being aware of where he was without the ball. It'll be interesting to see if teams use this strategy next season. Korver is still going to be a middle-round target in fantasy leagues next season.
May 27 - 9:36 PM

Stephen Curry is going through shootaround on Wednesday wearing a right elbow sleeve, but he will play and see his normal amount of minutes in Game 5 vs. the Rockets.

Curry had a scary fall in Game 4 and appeared to hit his head, shoulder and elbow, but he said that he feels fine and that he is dealing with some bruising and general soreness on the right side of his body. For what it's worth, Curry passed the league's concussion protocol twice before he re-entered Monday's game, and he seemed to be fine after that. His elbow could be a little sore, so it will be interesting to see if it has any impact on his shooting stroke. We will pass along any additional details when we know more, but it's safe to activate him in fantasy leagues.

Beno Udrih will undergo ankle surgery and will not play with the Slovenian national team at Eurobasket this summer.

We don't have a lot of details right now, but it is likely a minor procedure. Udrih played through an ankle issue during the playoffs, but the fact that he won't play with the Slovenian national team means that he will have plenty of time to recover. As always, we will track his progress closely and will update his status once more is known.

Al Horford was invisible during the Hawks' season-ending Game 4 defeat, scoring only two points on 1-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and one block in 29 minutes.

Horford avoided a suspension for his flying elbow to Matthew Dellavedova's neck in Game 3, but that's where the good news ended. He looked passive on Tuesday, at best, and all but two of his field goal attempts came from mid-range. He shot 58.3 percent in the series but attempted only 9.0 shots per game, giving him a usage rate below 19 percent. Fantasy owners shouldn't let Horford's Conference Finals dud dissuade them on draft day next season, as he's in a contract year and has returned top-20 value in each of the past three seasons when healthy.
May 26 - 11:26 PM

Paul Millsap had 16 points, 10 rebounds and five assists during Game 4, in which the Hawks were swept out of the playoffs with an 88-118 defeat.

A report on Tuesday suggested that Millsap, an impending free agent, may need offseason surgery to repair his sprained right shoulder. The injury clearly plagued him throughout the playoffs -- he led the Hawks with 16.7 points and 7.8 rebounds during the regular season but was down to just 13.8 points on 34.9 percent shooting vs. the Cavs in the Conference Finals. We should have a medical update within a few weeks.
