• Josh Richardson - SG/SF - Miami Heat

    Josh Richardson (shoulder) said that he is 60-40 towards playing in Game 5 on Tuesday against the Sixers.

    Richardson said he went through all of shootaround. It's an elimination game so the defensive minded guard will likely be out there, but could be on a minutes restriction if pain flares up during the game. Justise Winslow, Dwayne Wade, Wayne Ellington and Rodney McGruder in that order would all see more playing time if Richardson sits.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard had 16 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal as the Raptors were able to find enough scoring from the supporting cast to beat the Magic on Friday night.

    Aaron Gordon matched up with Kawhi for most of this one and did a good job keeping him uncomfortable as he struggled to a 5-for-19 shooting night. Head coach Nick Nurse indicated after the game that Leonard has been dealing with an illness that kept him from practicing the last two days so that may have had something to do with his struggles as well.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry posted 12 points, 10 assists, five rebounds, two threes, one steal and one block in Friday's win on the road against the Magic.

    Not only did Lowry have a nice full line, he made a lot of hustle plays that helped Toronto to an ugly playoff win on the road. He is responding nicely after struggling in Game 1, proving that he can be productive in the playoffs.

  • Danny Green - G/F - Toronto Raptors

    Danny Green notched 13 points with three three-pointers, one steal and one block on Friday night.

    On a night where Kawhi didn't have it going from three (0-for-3), Green stepped up with an efficient shooting night and his trademark defense to help Toronto win an ugly one on the road.

  • Nikola Vucevic - C - Orlando Magic

    Nikola Vucevic finally looked like himself on Friday night as he dropped 22 points, 14 rebounds, six assists, three blocks and one steal as the Magic fell 98-93 to the Raptors at home.

    Vucevic broke out of his playoff slump, but unfortunately Orlando dealt with poor shooting nights from DJ Augustin (3-for-7) and Evan Fournier (1-for-12) that ultimately sunk them on their home floor.

  • Aaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic

    Aaron Gordon only scored 10 points on 4-for-10 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal on Friday night.

    While Gordon's line doesn't jump off the page, it was Kawhi's struggles from the field (5-for-19) that highlighted the impact he had on this game. Gordon's strong defensive effort helped the Magic stay alive on a cold shooting night but it wasn't enough to win.

  • Jonathan Isaac - F - Orlando Magic

    Jonathan Isaac chipped in a solid performance on Friday night against the Raptors with 14 points, seven rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two made threes.

    Isaac was a big part of how Orlando was able to keep the game close in the first half, but his struggles from the field (4-for-11) and three (2-for-7) kept him off the floor in the fourth quarter as the his team attempted a final comeback.

  • Terrence Ross - G/F - Orlando Magic

    Terrence Ross played 32 minutes off the bench and scored 24 points on 8-for-17 shooting, including five made threes and two steals in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

    On a night where the Magic got virtually nothing from Evan Fournier, Ross came through with a huge performance. Unfortunately, the big game from Ross wasn't enough for Orlando to overcome a poor night from its starting guards and a lackluster effort on the defensive boards.

  • Blake Griffin - F - Detroit Pistons

    Blake Griffin (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play in Saturday’s Game 3 vs. the Bucks.

    Griffin has already missed the first two games against Milwaukee. Detroit hasn’t been very competitive without him and they’ll need the big man if they hope to even up the series at home. Thon Maker would likely get another start if Griffin isn’t able to play.

  • Tony Snell - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) is not on the injury report for Saturday's Game 3 vs. the Pistons.

    Snell has been expected to miss Games 1 and 2 (he did) so it looks like his timetable to return is correct. He's an important part of what the Bucks do but his value isn't as apparent in fantasy. Snell also might be eased into it since he's been out of action for a while.

  • Patrick McCaw - G - Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (right thumb sprain) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Magic.

    McCaw is just emergency depth at this point and won’t get much run while the team is healthy. He can be ignored in DFS although coach Nick Nurse mentioned that he wanted to get McCaw in the game for his defensive abilities.
