• Deyonta Davis - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Deyonta Davis (right ankle sprain) is probable to face the Magic on Friday.

    Davis has provided deep league big man stats seeing roughly 20 minutes a night over the past week while averaging 6.5 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. With all the injuries the Hawks have been dealing with and the potential to rest/shut down the players in front of him, it's not out of the question that Davis could have a big game or two to close out the season if an expanded opportunity presents itself.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Brett Brown said that Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) is a game-time decision for Game 5 against the Nets on Tuesday.

    Here we go again. Embiid's status has come down to tip-off in each game, and Game 5 will be no different. Embiid has been great this series when he plays. Greg Monroe, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott will see extra minutes if Embiid can't go.

  • Igor Kokoskov - Team - Phoenix Suns

    The Suns have released all the coaching staff of Igor Kokoskov so the next coach can hire their own staff.

    The Suns cleaned house on their coaching staff just one season removed from signing Kokoskov. The next coach will be the Suns’ fifth coach in five seasons. For context; Devin Booker will be on his fifth coach at the age of 22. The Suns desperately need to nail this pick and give the new coach sufficient time to mold this young core.

  • Terrence Ross - G/F - Orlando Magic

    The Magic are sticking with their normal starting five in Game 5 against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    There was some thought that coach Steve Clifford would slide Terrence Ross into the starting lineup, but he ultimately decided that he needs Ross' scoring off the bench to prevent lulls in the second unit. He also mentioned that he needs Jonathan Isaac and Aaron Gordon to guard Kawhi Leonard and Pascal Siakam. Ross is going to see a lot of minutes either way.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) remained probable ahead of Tuesday's Game 5 against the Nets in the most recent NBA injury report update.

    Embiid's game-to-game availability this series has been a crapshoot. He missed a game with a probable tag while playing another with a questionable. Make sure to check back in prior to tipoff, but it's looking like Embiid will give it a go in a close out opportunity at home.

  • JB Bickerstaff - Team - Memphis Grizzlies

    The Cavs are interested in former Grizzlies coach JB Bickerstaff and may formally add him to their coaching search.

    Bickerstaff would join a long list of coaches already linked to the Cavs, as they leave no stone unturned in their search for a new head coach. The way it is going, Bickerstaff won't be the last name linked to the Cavs in the coming weeks.

  • Jason Kidd - Team - Milwaukee Bucks

    Jason Kidd interviewed with GM Rob Pelinka and team executive Kurt Rambis for the Lakers' head coaching position on Monday.

    Kidd, who has been on the market since the Bucks fired him during the 2017-2018 season, becomes the third candidate to meet with the Lakers since they fired Luke Walton. The head coaching carousel is starting to heat up.

  • Nate Tibbetts - Team - Trail Blazers

    The Blazers gave the Cavs permission to interview assistants Nate Tibbetts and David Vanterpool for the Cavs' head coaching vacancy.

    The Cavs are casting a wide net in search for their next head coach with the team also showing interest in Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard and Dallas Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley, among others. The Cavs can take their time to find the right guy as the NBA draft is just under two months away.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    DeMarcus Cousins (torn left quad) is with the Warriors and rehabbing, although it remains highly unlikely that he will return this season.

    This doesn't change Cousins' status much for the playoffs, but it is nice to hear that he is able to get some work in. Cousins will again be on the open market this summer as he tries to prove his health before free agency starts up.

  • Draymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green (wrist), whose MRI came back clean, practiced on Tuesday and is available to play in Game 5 on Wednesday.

    It looks like Green avoided anything serious and is "fine" moving forward. This is great news for the Warriors, who are already dealing with the loss of DeMarcus Cousins.

  • Paul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George is staying confident that his Thunder will come back from a 3-1 deficit saying, "I definitely think we're built for this. If there's a team that can be down 3-1 and come back from it, I think we're the team to do it."

    While it's great to hear the confidence from one of your superstar leaders, the Thunder need to shoot better if they want to mount a comeback. George looked better in Game 4, but outside of Game 3's home win, the Thunder have shot the ball poorly as a team all series long.
