Kevin Love (head) has been ruled out for the rest of the game on Friday.

He is being evaluated from a concussion and has been out since the middle of the first quarter. Love had a concussion back in March, had another one back in the 2016 NBA Finals, and has a history beyond that, too. Luckily for the Cavs tonight, Jeff Green and Larry Nance have stepped up. That'll continue tonight while Love is questionable to play on Sunday.

Kevin Love (head) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Friday.

Jayson Tatum's left shoulder caught Love in the head and he called for a sub right away while he was on the ground. He was down for at least a minute and had the training staff look at him. After he got up, he went to the bench first to sit down, and then went to the locker room. He's likely getting a concussion check, so we'll have an update shortly.

Terry Rozier, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum, Aron Baynes and Al Horford will start again on Friday against the Cavs.

This time, coach Ty Lue should be expecting Semi Ojeleye to be on the bench. Kidding aside, Lue also gave credit to coach Brad Stevens for the Baynes move, which helped out Horford in Game 5. Marcus Morris is still going to see minutes in the up 30 and will be the main defender on LeBron James.

Brandon Ingram has been working out in North Carolina and has looked stronger this offseason, according to former college teammate Grayson Allen.

Muscle Watch: Hearsay Edition? Ingram has been expected to add some weight this summer in hopes he can play more four. His thinner frame may also have affected his health this season. The Lakers almost certainly won't be trading him unless it's to set up a super-team roster. If he can improve his shooting, he could take a step forward in fantasy.

On ESPN's Get Up, Danny Green said he thinks Kawhi Leonard wants to stay in San Antonio.

Green did say he has to check on Kawhi to see how he's doing, which means he may not have talked to him recently. Green added Leonard was on and off track with his leg injury, so it's possible that's a factor in all of this. There really hasn't been a revealing report on this situation to date, and we likely won't get anything concrete until at least July.

Frank Mason, Skal Labissiere, Nigel Hayes and Harry Giles were working out after a pre-draft workout on Friday.

No details yet on how far along Giles is, but he probably isn't 100 percent after the Kings ruled him out for the season in January. The Kings took a chance on one of the best high school prospects, and they knew they weren't going to get much out of him last year. Maybe he plays in summer league.

Marquese Chriss was at the Suns draft workout on Friday.

This is good news for Chriss after he admitted that he slacked off last summer. Chriss said he put on weight last summer, which both the team and he cited as part of the reason his season got off to a bumpy start. Maybe he can turn it around, but he will have to prove it after a colossal letdown last year.

Andre Iguodala (left leg) is listed as questionable for Game 6 against Houston on Saturday.

Iggy's already missed the last two games and could potentially miss Game 6 as well, which is not good news for Golden State. The Warriors play better with him, especially against the Rockets. If he does miss Game 6, expect Kevon Looney to remain in the starting role. We'll know more tomorrow as game-time approaches.
May 25 - 1:35 PM

Coach Mike D'Antoni says that Eric Gordon will start Game 6 against the Warriors on Saturday.

With Chris Paul being out due to a right hamstring strain, it's no surprise Gordon will get the start here. It's Gordon's first start of the playoffs and the Rockets will need him to step up to replace how well CP3 has played over the last couple of games. Paul's status going forward is still uncertain, so Gordon could also start on Monday in Game 7 if the Warriors win Game 6 on Saturday.
May 25 - 1:18 PM

Chris Paul will not play in Game 6 on Saturday against Golden State due to a right hamstring strain.

CP3 tweaked his right hamstring late in the fourth quarter of Game 5 on Thursday. He'll be re-evaluated again once the team returns to Houston, but this is not the news that the Rockets wanted to hear. Eric Gordon will have to step up on the offensive end in a major way, which he's shown he can do. This season when Paul and James Harden were sitting, Gordon averaged 34.6 points and 6.5 assists per 40 minutes. He played 36 minutes in Game 5, his most of this postseason. Expect somewhere around there again in Game 6.
May 25 - 12:25 PM

Coach Brad Stevens does not think Shane Larkin (shoulder) will play in Game 6 against Cleveland on Friday.

Larkin hasn't played all series and wasn't expected to, so the game plan will not change for the Celtics. He's doubtful for the rest of the series if it were to be extended to a Game 7.
May 25 - 11:47 AM

Steve Kerr says Andre Iguodala is improving "incrementally" but that his availability for Game 6 is still unknown.

The Warriors now have their backs against the wall and are clearly hurting from not having Iggy in the lineup. On the season the Warriors are 0-4 against the Rockets without him in the lineup versus a 3-1 record with him.

Raptors President Masai Ujiri will reportedly "explore all options" with regards to shaking up Toronto's roster this offseason.

He will likely be returning with the Raptors, but after a season that saw the franchise's best record end in a second-round sweep to the Cavaliers, nothing is out of the question for Toronto. Ujiri already fired Coach of the Year finalist Dwane Casey.

Damian Lillard is reportedly requesting a follow-up meeting with Blazer owner Paul Allen.

"I hear that he is asking for another meeting," an NBA front-office source told John Canzano of the Oregonian. Lillard was recently named to the All-NBA First Team, and is looking for a follow-up meeting with Allen to discuss the possibility of bringing in high profile free agents to prime the Blazers for a deep playoff run. After a great regular season, followed by a season-ending sweep at the hands of the six-seed Pelicans, you can't blame him.
May 25 - 10:17 AM

After Game 5 on Thursday Chris Paul (right hamstring) said, "I will be all right."

When asked about Game 6 he said, "Oh yeah." CP3 was hopping in a Maybach outside of the Toyota Center after the game and appears to be confident in his status for Game 6, which would be series changing news for the Rockets if he’s able to play. Paul is optimistic, but he'll still need to be re-evaluated and we can expect some form of update by Friday afternoon.
