• Steve Kerr is unsure about whether or not he will coach in Game 1 of the Finals on Thursday but he would not coach if he had to decide on Monday.

    This is a sort of under-the-radar plot line heading into the Finals.  The Warriors struggled to make adjustments in last year’s Finals and much of it was due to an over-allegiance to their free-flowing offense.  When things got tight and Cleveland found things that worked defensively, the Warriors just pushed further into their trouble spots of turnovers and bad shots.  Whether or not Kerr would mark a change in that dynamic in relation to Mike Brown is a big question mark, and though Kerr’s presence will undoubtedly be felt and he’s among the best coaches in the game — will the new chain of command create challenges that get exasperated during key moments?

    Lauri Markkanen (left ankle sprain) Chandler Hutchison (right shoulder soreness) and Ryan Arcidiacono (right elbow discomfort) are being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

  • Austin Rivers
    PG, Houston Rockets

    Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) is being listed as questionable to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Rivers is in danger of missing a third straight contest. His absence opens up a few extra minutes for Ben McLemore and Eric Gordon.

  • Duncan Robinson
    F, Miami Heat

    The Heat are listing Duncan Robinson (ankle sprain) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    If Duncan can't go Derrick Jones Jr. would be the likely move into the starting lineup and biggest beneficiary, while others would get extra minutes as well. Keep an eye on this situation as we get closer to game time.

  • Goran Dragic
    PG, Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (knee bruise) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Dragic picked up the injury during Monday's win over the Kings, but it doesn't look like it will have any effect going forward. Jimmy Butler (hip) is probable for this one and will take some minutes back from Dragic.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    The Heat have upgraded Jimmy Butler (right hip soreness) to probable for Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards.

    The Heat's alpha-dog seems to be ready to go after a one-game absence. Butler has been a top-20 player in 9/8 cat leagues all year, and that should continue the rest of the way. Owners can feel comfortable getting him back into the lineup.

  • Anzejs Pasecniks
    C, Washington Wizards

    Anzejs Pasecniks (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Pasecniks is just a depth option now that Thomas Bryant and Davis Bertans have returned to action. Leave him on the waiver wire.

  • Rajon Rondo
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Rajon Rondo (fractured right finger) is being listed as probable to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Rondo played 20 minutes in his return to the lineup on Monday, pushing Quinn Cook back to a deep-reserve role. Rondo is outside the top-200 in 9/8 cat league this season but remains a deep-league option for those in need of a PG.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (glute) is being listed as questionable to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Davis returned to action in Monday's blowout loss to the Celtics. He should be good to go moving forward. Get the superstar big man back into all lineups.

  • Markieff Morris
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Markieff Morris (jammed right big toe) is being listed as probable to play against the Kings on Wednesday after leaving Monday's game early with the injury.

    It looks like Morris didn't suffer anything too serious if he's being listed as probable. Andre Drummond (lip) is questionable for this one, which would open up added opportunities for Morris.
