Joel Embiid (face) will start for Game 3 against the Heat on Thursday.

He's back. Embiid will reportedly wear a mask and goggles in his return to the lineup after missing 21 days. He doesn't have a formal minutes cap and his playing time will be based on his conditioning. Embiid is likely going to see a lot of Hassan Whiteside, and it's worth a mention he attempted more 3-pointers with Whiteside guarding him than any other player in the NBA this season (6-of-11, per NBA.com). Trust The Process.

Joel Embiid (face) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday against the Heat.

Giddy up. Embiid has been lobbying to play for a long time and he was doing so just moments ago. Apparently, that lobbying and clearing the tests will allow him to get back on the court. He'll likely be a game-time call, but things are looking up for The Process. We'll have at least one more update on Embiid this evening.

Joe Young (sinus infection) is questionable for Game 3 on Friday.

He's not in the rotation anyway with Darren Collison and Cory Joseph healthy right now.
Apr 19 - 4:12 PM

Spurs assistant Ettore Messina will coach Game 3 on Thursday night.

Head coach Gregg Popovich's wife, Erin, passed away on Wednesday and it's unclear when he will return to the sidelines. We wish him and his family all the best.

Wesley Matthews (leg) said he expects to be cleared for basketball-related activity this week.

He has an MRI scheduled on Thursday to determine if the stress fracture in his right fibula is healed, so we may get another update this evening. "By the end of the week, I should be good to go," Matthews said. The injury sidelined him for the final 16 games of the season and he finished with averages 12.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.4 triples on 40.6% shooting. He hasn't decided if he will pick up his $18.6M player option for 2018-19, but it will be hard for him to leave that kind of money on the table.

Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) said he won't rule out a return in Round 1 of the playoffs.

"I wouldn’t say ‘no.’ But I also want to be smart and do the right thing," LMAM said. "It’s feeling better. Continue to do the rehab, get the strength back and see what happens." The Rockets never gave him a timetable, but it sounds like he'll be day-to-day soon. His counting stats may not show it, but LMAM has been terrific this season and his return will give their defense a huge lift.

Chandler Parsons shared his thoughts on his disappointing 2017-18 season.

"I had moments this year where I felt good and felt like myself, and I had moments where the soreness and stiffness were just too much," Parsons said. "I want to play. I want to be healthy. And I’m doing everything in my power to get there." He averaged 7.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 19.2 minutes, playing in a total of 35 games. Needless to say, the Grizzlies should be relieved that he's halfway through his four-year, $94 million contract.

Kyle O'Quinn hasn't decided if he will pick up his player option for 2018-19.

"I came into the season, I don’t want to say without a role, but knowing that anything can happen," KOQ said. "Whether it be trade talks or things like that, I think I handled it well by putting myself in a solid position where I could display what I could do." His player option is worth roughly $4.2M, but he should be able to command a raise this summer after a strong finish to the season. After the All-Star break, KOQ averaged 8.7 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.9 blocks in just 21.6 minutes.
