OG Anunoby will play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He was able to practice on Tuesday and there wasn't much concern that he would miss time. Anunoby has been around 20 minutes in most of these games and would likely be in the same neighborhood. His playing time could also drop if Delon Wright is hot.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Coach Dwane Casey said the medical people are not ready to put FVV back out there, so he may need to miss additional time. With him out, Delon Wright should get a chance to bounce back after a drop in production in D.C. He was terrific in the last two home games and should see minutes in the mid 20s.

George Hill (back spasms) will not play in Game 5 vs. the Pacers, and Jose Calderon will get another start.

It'll be Hill's second game out of the lineup and his durability continues to hold him back. For tonight, Calderon is likely looking at around 20 minutes while J.R. Smith and Jordan Clarkson should see additional time. Smith is a DFS punt option while Clarkson and Calderon are possible tourney plays.

Jeff Teague went through shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Rockets.

He dislocated his finger in Game 4 and was able to return, but coach Tom Thibodeau said it Teague is doing better. "[The injury is] a weird sort of thing. That hurt him some, but he’s fine today," Thibodeau said. Teague will be in the lineup today, but he may not be 100 percent. Derrick Rose is a chalky punt play today.

Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee surgery) is expected to resume full basketball activities in 8-10 weeks.

That should keep him out of Las Vegas Summer League in July. Players often get a knee scope after the completion of a season, and it's not necessarily going to affect them negatively in the coming year. Bogdanovic took a step back in efficiency as the season went along, so he'll look to turn it around and he should be close to 100 percent for camp in the fall.

Coach Tom Thibodeau said that Tyus Jones (right knee soreness) participated in shootaround and will "hopefully" be available to play in Game 5 Wednesday night vs. Houston.

Jones only logged seven minutes in Game 3 and was ruled out of Game 4 on Monday. "I think he’s feeling better," said Thibs after shootaround. "He will go through [preagme] warmups tonight. Hopefully, he’ll be available." Derrick Rose will continue to see extended minutes if Jones is ruled out. Over the first four games of the series, Rose is averaging 14.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 23.7 minutes per contest.

Luc Mbah a Moute (dislocated shoulder) began shooting over the weekend, but still has not been given a timetable for his return.

Mbah a Moute, who initially injured the shoulder back on April 10th, has said he's been happy with his progress in rehab. "He's closer," coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It's still too early to put a timetable on it, yet. Next week, he'll be re-evaluated. I think he'll be real close next week, but I don't know that for sure." We'll pass along an update after his re-evaluation next week.

Manu Ginobili said he is contemplating retirement but will likely wait a couple of months before making a final decision on his future.

Ginobili finished with 10 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, in what may have been the final game of his NBA career. "I’ve been contemplating retirement forever," Ginobili said after the game. "Nothing changed. I’ll let a month or two months go by, and then I’ll see how I feel. I’m not the type of guy that makes decisions on the fly, or when you’re upset or hurt or whatever. I usually let it sink in and see how it feels."
