Dennis Schroder played just 12 minutes against the Cavs on Friday, scoring eight points with two rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers and two turnovers.

Jeff Teague played his best game of the series by far, so coach Mike Budenholzer went with his starter. Schroder still put up some decent stats in the limited playing time, which has been his calling card. He'll be risky the rest of the way.

Kent Bazemore made 1-of-5 from the field for three points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

He lost a couple minutes of playing time because Thabo Sefolosha started and Kyle Korver was fairly hot in this game. Bazemore did a decent job on Kyrie Irving at times early in this game, but that doesn't help his fantasy output. After a 1-of-7 shooting line in Game 2, you could argue the extra effort on D is a reason why his fantasy value is hurting.

Thabo Sefolosha (elbow) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Friday and will return.

He had a rough fall and landed on his elbow. Sefolosha tried to walk it off, but he was went to the floor in pain. He made the start for Kyle Korver, so Korver will likely be playing more again.

The Hawks are starting Thabo Sefolosha in place of Kyle Korver for Game 3 against the Cavs on Friday.

It's a last-second move for the Hawks to try and get bigger bodies out there against LeBron James. Sefolosha should take some minutes away from Korver here, but he's still very risky to use in DFS. Korver loses a lot of appeal, as well.

The Clippers announced Blake Griffin (quad) will not play in the 2016 Olympics.

There were some other reports of Griffin not playing in Brazil and now it's official. He's not expected to have surgery on his injured quad and should be ready for the start of next season.

The Knicks contacted Frank Vogel to test his interest in their head-coaching job.

They have not requested an interview yet and Phil Jackson hasn't made a decision how to proceed, according to the report. Vogel not being brought back to Pacers put him at the top of the list for most teams with a vacancy. The Knicks will likely have to decide between Vogel and Kurt Rambis.

Coach Luke Walton said he'll be focusing on the offensive side and will bring in a defensive coach to his staff.

He's really going to try to incorporate the Warriors-style offense to his new team. The problem is the Lakers personnel isn't quite as strong as Golden State. The new offense should help out guys like D'Angelo Russell.

Stephen Curry (knee) was only a partial participant in practice on Friday and remains out for Game 3.

He did do some light shooting with a knee brace. The Warriors may be targeting Game 4 for Curry's return, but that might change with a 3-0 later after Saturday. Plus, coach Steve Kerr has said Curry only has a slight chance for Game 4.

The Jazz announced on Friday that they have officially signed head coach Quin Snyder to a long-term contract extension.

"We have continued to take significant steps as a team under Quin’s direction," Jazz General Manager Dennis Lindsey said. "His work ethic, basketball intelligence and ability to connect with and develop our players make him the ideal head coach of the Jazz." Snyder will be entering his third season as the head coach of the Jazz and will look to get his promising young team into the postseason.

The Wizards are expected to offer Tomas Satoransky a multi-year deal this summer.

They will have to buy out his contract with FC Barcelona for $1.5 million, but the 24-year-old combo guard is finally expected to come to the NBA. Satoransky was the 32nd pick in the 2012 draft and could see minutes behind John Wall and Bradley Beal next season, assuming Beal re-signs with Washington. Hopefully we will get a chance to see him in the summer league.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said on the Dan Patrick Show that Stephen Curry (knee) will not play in Game 3 vs. the Blazers on Saturday.

Kerr added that Curry has a "slight chance" of playing in Game 4 on Monday, but keep in mind that the Warriors are probably just being cautious since they have a 2-0 series lead. Most reports seem to indicate that Curry is making excellent progress, but the next step for him is to participate in some 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 work. Shaun Livingston will start at point guard again on Saturday. We might get another update this afternoon.

According to the New York Daily News, Kurt Rambis is still the frontrunner to coach the Knicks next season.

The Knicks could give former Pacers coach Frank Vogel a look, but multiple executives around the league expect Rambis to get the job. Phil Jackson recently went on vacation which put the Knicks' coaching search on hold, but several previous reports have indicated that Rambis is Jackson's preferred choice.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Spurs will chase Kevin Durant in free agency this summer.

Why wouldn't they? According to Stein's sources, the Spurs are just as "intrigued" as Golden State by the thought of adding KD to the mix. A trio of Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Durant would be a frightening sight for opposing teams, but Durant is probably more focused on what he needs to do in Game 3 on Friday vs. San Antonio at the moment.

Wes Johnson is expected to decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

His player option is only worth $1.2 million, so the swingman should get a decent raise due to the rising salary cap. Johnson averaged just 6.9 points, 3.1 boards, 0.7 blocks, 1.1 steals and 1.3 3-pointers in 20.8 minutes per game this season, so he shouldn't be on fantasy draft boards in most cases.

Cole Aldrich is expected to decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

He averaged 4.5 points, 4.2 boards and 1.1 blocks as a reserve, but posted averages of 15.8 points, 11.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 blocks and 2.4 steals in five starts this season. He would've made just $1.2 million if he picked up his player option, so it's an easy decision for him to opt out. If he does land in an ideal situation next season, the 27-year-old center could make some noise in fantasy.
