Josh Richardson (shoulder) is questionable for Game 5 on Tuesday.

The Heat called his injury a contusion on Sunday, but now they've changed it to a sprain. Richardson previously said that he was planning to play, and he was able to play through the issue in Game 4. If Richardson can't play, that would be a huge blow to Miami as he's one of their only hopes to contain Ben Simmons.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Game 5 on Wednesday.

Getting listed as doubtful two days before tip-off is a pretty bad sign. FVV was able to get some shots up after Monday's practice, but the Raptors will continue to play it safe with the backup PG.

Andrew Bogut has signed with the Sydney Kings of Australia's NBL.

This could be the end of Bogut's 13-year NBA career. Now 33, Bogut was unable to land a job in the NBA after being waived by the Lakers in January.

Damian Lillard shot down the idea of Portland trading C.J. McCollum.

"I mean, I don't agree with it. I think it's that simple," Lillard said. "That's the easiest thing to say, but I don't agree with it." The Lillard and McCollum duo had a net rating of 4.8 during the regular season, but that number dropped to -12.7 during the playoffs and they were outplayed by Jrue Holiday and Rajon Rondo. Lillard still believes that the Blazers can turn things around and become a contender just like the Warriors did after their first round loss to the Clippers in 2014. "I honestly feel like our team is capable of something like that," Lillard said.

Ed Davis said he "100%" wants to re-sign with the Blazers.

Jusuf Nurkic will be a restricted free agent and Davis will be unrestricted, but the Blazers already have $110.5 million in guaranteed salary on the books and likely can't afford to keep both. Davis gave the Portland second unit a huge lift this season, posting averages of 5.3 points, 7.4 boards and 0.7 blocks in 18.9 minutes. If Davis does return and Nurkic doesn't, we'd rather take a flier on Zach Collins.

Mike Conley (heel surgery) expects to be a full go for 2018-19.

"Thankfully I had the surgery early enough to where I have a full summer of work and getting my body ready for an 82-game season," Conley said. His ADP should be way down after making it through just 12 games with 17.1 points, 4.1 assists and 2.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples on 38.1% shooting. He will be entering the third year of his five-year, $153 million deal, but carries a lot of risk because of his durability and the potential for Memphis to tank again.

According to a source of Marc Berman of The New York Post, the Knicks are Mike Budenholzer's top choice.

"If they offered him the job, he’d say yes. He wants to live in New York.’’ Budenholzer was in advanced talks with the Suns before turning them down for unknown reasons, so we'll see if the Knicks can close the deal. Coach Bud has two years and $13 million remaining on his deal with the Hawks, so the Knicks may have to offer some compensation to pry him away.

Jusuf Nurkic said he would like to remain in Portland next season.

"I want to be here," he said. "It's no secret." Nurkic will be a restricted free agent this summer, but the Blazers already have $110.5 million in guaranteed money on the books. The Blazers have some intriguing young talent behind Nurk in Zach Collins and Caleb Swanigan, so it wouldn't be a surprise if they let him walk if his price gets out of hand. After a monster finish to the 2016-17 season, Nurkic didn't live up to expectations in 2017-18.
