• Miles Plumlee - C - Atlanta Hawks

    Miles Plumlee drew the start with Dewayne Dedmon a late scratch on Tuesday and was good for six points, eight rebounds and a steal in 34 minutes of work.

    Plumlee looks like he'll start again if Dedmon misses more time but this line doesn't inspire much confidence. He's going to be little more than a low-end rebounding specialist. Mike Muscala is the far better option and should already be owned in all leagues given his play over the last two weeks. Moose slowed down a bit but was still solid tonight with 13 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three triples. Pick him up.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) will play in Game 5 against the Nets on Tuesday.

  • Ed Davis - C - Brooklyn Nets

    Ed Davis (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's Game 5 matchup with the Sixers.

    Davis was questionable going into the game, so this shouldn't come as a big surprise. With Davis out the Nets really need Jarrett Allen to step up on the glass and to provide a defensive presence in the paint.

  • 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.
