• Steven Adams - C - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams (ear) has returned to start the second half on Tuesday against the Lakers.

    Adams left in the middle of the second quarter after a big blow to his head. He told trainers he lost his hearing, so there was grave cause for concern. Adams has returned and should play a normal slot of minutes in the second half.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry shot 6-for-10 from the floor for 14 points with four boards, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes to put away the Magic on Tuesday.

    Lowry had an extremely up-and-down series. Tuesday was a bit of a down game, but he didn't have to do much as the Raptors jumped out to a 20-point lead by halftime. Lowry did leave the first half early after hurting a finger on his right hand, so that could be something to monitor moving forward. The Raptors should get ample rest ahead of the second round.

  • Pascal Siakam - F - Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam shot 8-for-16 from the floor for 24 points with six boards, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes to eliminate the Magic in Game 5 on Tuesday night.

    Siakam was as steady as they come in this series. He has fully emerged during the season and is now spreading his wings for a deep playoff run. The Raptors will highly likely face the Sixers in the second round, pending a Sixers win tonight.

  • Kawhi Leonard - F - Toronto Raptors

    Kawhi Leonard shot 8-for-11 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line for 27 points with seven boards, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Magic in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Leonard has been ultra-efficient in this series and could not be contained by the young Magic defenders. After resting throughout the season, his method is paying dividends as he looks fresh and ready to lead the Raptors on a deep run. The Raptors and Kawhi will get ample rest ahead of the second round.

  • Mike Scott - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Mike Scott (heel) will not return in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Scott looked a bit hobbled as he showed a slight limp coming off the floor late in the second quarter. The Sixers had to call a timeout to get him out of the game. He walked to the locker room under his own power. With the Sixers building a sizable lead by halftime, Scott could simply be resting.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

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

    The Process will take the court in an elimination game to send the Nets back home empty-handed. He has been terrific when he goes. Get Embiid in those last-minute lineups.

  • 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.
