Marcus Morris will start Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

We'll get to see if Morris can put his money where his mouth is about being able to defend LeBron. He's getting the nod over Aron Baynes, who started every game of the Philadelphia series. This will be Morris' first start of these playoffs.

Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said on Tuesday that Atlanta might get Kent Bazemore (ankle) back "in a couple of weeks."

Jan 22 - 12:43 PM

Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee tweeted that he is "hearing [Kawhi Leonard] might be held out" of Tuesday night's game vs. Kings.

Kawhi has missed each of the Raptors past two games and did not attend practice on Monday as he had a scheduled maintenance checkup. However, coach Nick Nurse did say that he expected Leonard to be back with the team on Tuesday. In his tweet on Tuesday afternoon, Jason Anderson added that Kawhi "was expected to return tonight but it's the first leg of a back-to-back with a big game against the Pacers tomorrow." We will provide another update as soon as one is available.

Coach Doc Rivers said that Lou Williams (right hamstring) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.

Lou Will has missed each of the Clippers previous two contests but is on track to suit up Tuesday night, as coach Rivers told reporters that Williams "looked good" in a 2-on-2 drill Monday vs. the assistant coaches. L.A. can certainly use Williams offensive contributions, as they will be without Danilo Gallinari (back) once again. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Patrick Beverley will see their minutes scaled back with Lou Will returning to action.

Coach Luke Walton said that he thinks Rajon Rondo (hand) will play Thursday vs. Minnesota barring any setbacks, but that he has not seen LeBron James (groin) do any contact yet, so is less confident he’ll be ready for Thursday.

LeBron is heading in the right direction, as he was able to go through some "5-on-5 non-contact work" on Sunday. However, the Lakers want to make sure he is as close to 100% as possible before clearing him to return to game action. We should have an update on his status after practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Luke Walton says he thinks Rajon Rondo (hand) will play Thursday vs. Minnesota as long as he doesn’t have any setbacks.

It was initially predicted Rondo would miss 4-5 weeks when he went down at the end of December, but he's well ahead of schedule. With Lonzo Ball (ankle) sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks, Rondo will likely see all the minutes he can handle at point guard once he gets up to speed and is in full game shape. Brandon Ingram will shift back to the wing. Over his first seven games with the Lakers, Rondo was averaging 11.9 points, 6.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals. If he still on the wire, he's worth grabbing in most fantasy leagues.

Donovan Mitchell shot 12-of-28 from the field and 10-of-12 from the foul line Monday vs. the Trail Blazers, accounting for a game-high 34 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

After getting off to a hot start Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-5 shooting in the first quarter, Mitchell went quiet before flipping the switch in the fourth quarter. During one stretch of action in the final stanza the second-year guard scored all 14 of Utah’s points, keeping the Jazz within striking distance in a game the team would ultimately lose. Over the last five games Mitchell is averaging 30.0 points, 4.6 assists and 4.4 rebounds per with shooting splits of 46.4/28.9/84.1. The return of Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is likely to impact Mitchell's workload eventually, but not for now as the veteran point guard is on a minutes restriction.

Damian Lillard helped lead Portland to its first win over the Jazz this season by scoring 26 points (10-of-20 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with eight rebounds, eight assists and one three-pointer in 36 minutes of action.

In Portland’s first two meetings with the Jazz, Lillard averaged 19.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals per game with shooting splits of 43.2/46.2/50.0. While the All-NBA guard shot just 1-of-5 from three on the night, he was 9-of-15 inside of the arc and also shot the ball well from the foul line. Lillard, who has now scored 24 points or more in five consecutive games, is averaging 28.8 points, 6.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds per during that stretch.

Kenneth Faried made his Rockets debut on Monday, scoring 13 points (5-of-7 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) with six rebounds in 23 minutes.

Asked before the game if he would limit Faried's minutes initially, coach Mike D'Antoni replied, "He hasn’t played in about three years, so he should have plenty of energy." Faried steps into a void at center without Clint Capela (thumb) for 4-6 weeks, and it wouldn't be surprising if he starts as soon as Wednesday's road game vs. the Knicks. Given the glaring opportunity, Faried is worth grabbing if you need rebounds and a boost in FG%. Just don't expect many defensive stats and be aware of his career 65.4% free throw shooting.
Jan 21 - 10:44 PM

Joel Embiid (back) piled up 32 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals on Monday, making 9-of-16 FGs and 14-of-17 FTs in an easy win vs. Houston.

Embiid wasn't officially announced as a starter until minutes before tip-off, but fortunately for owners he started the week with a huge, category-stuffing performance. It helped that he was playing a Houston team without Clint Capela (thumb), and with Kenneth Faried making his debut in a prominent role. Embiid gets two days to rest before Wednesday's game vs. the visiting Spurs, so owners can be confident he'll be ready to go.

Corey Brewer started for Jimmy Butler (mild wrist sprain) on Monday, picking up 11 points, three rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 33 minutes.

Brewer was the primary defender vs. James Harden and things got testy between them, apparently by design. Asked about Harden before the game, Brewer said, "The way he’s playing right now, nothing can help you ... [I'll just] do what I do. That’s being a pest and playing hard." Brewer was impressive and has his new coach's trust, but he can be left on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues. Butler is just day-to-day with his injury, and Brewer is also playing on a 10-day contract. Even if his deal is renewed and eventually guaranteed, it'll be hard for him to carve out value when Butler is active.
Jan 21 - 10:39 PM

Dion Waiters sparked a failed comeback attempt on Monday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

Erik Spoelstra praised Waiters after his strong play on Saturday, saying, "For guys working their way back into the rotation, like Dion, it's not easy ... He made his minutes memorable." That didn't stop Waiters from taking a public jab at coach Spo on Instagram for not starting him yet -- if he continues to play this well, maybe he'll force Spo's hand. He's not an enviable fantasy asset, though, because he rarely offers supporting stats so when shots aren't falling his value tanks in a hurry.
