Raymond Felton returned to action on Tuesday April 15.

Apr 16 - 2:54 AM

Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick will not travel to Portland for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

Well, that solves that. We knew Redick wouldn't play and Griffin is facing a suspension for picking up his 16th technical, so the move isn't all that surprising. Glen Davis and Darren Collison look like the best bets for success in their absence in Wednesday's finale. This also raises questions about how many minutes guys like Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will play, but at least they're going to travel.

J.J. Redick had 18 points and four 3-pointers in just 17 minutes, and will take the night off on Wednesday.

Jamal Crawford and Darren Collison should pick up his slack, but they could probably use some rest as well. It's probably best to avoid the Clippers' shooting guards in fantasy on Wednesday. Collison had 10 points in 24 minutes on Tuesday, while Crawford hit 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points in 31 minutes.
Apr 16 - 1:49 AM

Chris Paul hit 8-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points and 10 assists in Tuesday's win.

Wow. He's primed and ready to go for the playoffs, and the Clippers are going to be a tough out all the way, and could win it all. Paul's status for Wednesday is up in the air, as their game may not mean anything if the Thunder beat the Pistons early on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 1:48 AM

DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win, and will be getting some votes for the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

He was a pleasant fantasy surprise this season, but could take it easy on Wednesday night. The Clippers can get the No. 2 seed with a win and a Thunder loss, but OKC tips off at 8 p.m. ET in Detroit. If they're up big, or have already won when LAC tips off, the Clippers will literally have nothing to play for. And we're guessing Doc Rivers will give his big names a rest if that's the case, and possibly even if the Thunder lose.
Apr 16 - 1:46 AM

Blake Griffin had 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block on 9-of-17 shooting, but also picked up his 16th technical foul on Tuesday, which will earn him a one-game suspension for Wednesday's game.

He hit Timofey Mozgov in the face while following through on a block attempt, and while it wasn't intentional, it fits the definition of a technical foul. It could be rescinded and he could be allowed to play, but we're guessing Doc Rivers will take it easy on all the starters in a somewhat meaningless game. If the Thunder beat the Pistons, the Clippers are locked into the No. 3 seed in the West. Suspension or not, don't expect a lot from Blake on Wednesday. Look for the Thunder to try to beat the Pistons, as they play 2.5 hours prior to the Clippers tip off. And if it appears the Thunder will win when the Clippers tip off, the starters may all get a rest tomorrow.
Apr 16 - 1:38 AM

Wilson Chandler played through his groin injury on Tuesday and had seven points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting.

If he's not 100 percent, it's easy to see him sitting out in Wednesday's finale, and Evan Fournier (9 points on 3-of-10 shooting) could step up if Chandler is out.
Apr 16 - 1:30 AM

Randy Foye hit just 2-of-12 shots and was 0-for-7 from downtown for 11 points, four rebounds, seven assists and four steals in a loss to the Clippers.

Had his shot been falling he would have had a monster line, but as it was, he was still effective at filling the stat sheet. Foye should play solid minutes again on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 1:28 AM

Aaron Brooks had 19 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

He's been great filling in for Ty Lawson and all indications are that he'll get serious minutes again in Wednesday's finale.
Apr 16 - 1:26 AM

Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game briefly with a right knee injury, but returned to finish with 18 points, 11 rebounds and a block in a loss to the Clippers.

He's really turned it on over the last few weeks and his injury is no big deal. All indications are that he'll get solid minutes again in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
Apr 16 - 1:23 AM

Quincy Miller had 11 points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

The Nuggets have nothing to play for and there's no reason Miller won't see heavy minutes and another start in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
Apr 16 - 1:21 AM

Kenneth Faried had 21 points and six rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

The Nuggets have nothing to play for, but Faried is hot and may want to go out on a high note against the Warriors on Wednesday.
Apr 16 - 1:20 AM

Blake Griffin picked up his 16th technical foul on Tuesday night, drawing an automatic suspension for Wednesday's game, if it's not rescinded.

Griffin has already had three technical fouls rescinded this season and the NBA may call this one a "three strikes and you're out" situation. Griffin wasn't all that likely to play many minutes on Wednesday anyway, and given that there was no malicious intent to hurt Timofey Mozgov tonight, the league has a tough call to make.
Apr 15 - 11:43 PM

Mason Plumlee hit 7-of-9 shots for 16 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

He's made a name for himself over the past 30 games and should have another nice one on Wednesday, with or without the regular starters playing for Jason Kidd.
Apr 15 - 11:33 PM

Kevin Garnett missed all four of his shots and failed to score in 15 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

Even if the Nets are going to try to secure the No. 5 seed, playing KG any more regular season minutes seems pointless. Look for him to sit tomorrow.
