    Clippers' Kawhi Leonard: Game-time call for Game 2
    9m ago

    Leonard (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's Game 2 against the Mavericks, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Leonard took part in Monday's practice, and while it was reported to be a non-contact session, it appears all went well. The team will likely re-assess the star forward in the morning and see how he fares in shootaround and pregame warmups before making a decision on his availability for Game 2.

    Magic's Jalen Suggs: Questionable to return
    19m ago

    Suggs has been diagnosed with a left knee strain and is questionable to return to Monday's Game 2 against Cleveland.

    The fact that Suggs hasn't been immediately ruled out after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury is great news for the Magic. The team will likely continue to monitor its starting point guard as the game wears on to determine whether he can check back in.

    Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Tagged as doubtful
    1h ago

    Antetokounmpo (calf) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's Game 2 against Indiana.

    Antetokounmpo's left Soleus strain appears on track to keep him sidelined for Game 2, although Milwaukee can breathe a huge sigh of relief after controlling Game 1 at home. Antetokounmpo suffering a calf-related setback would be a worst-case scenario for the Bucks, so proceeding with caution appears likely, but his status will still need to be monitored until officially ruled out.

    Suggs needed assistance to get off the court during Monday's Game 2 against the Cavaliers after appearing to suffer a left leg injury, Jason Beede of the Orlando Sentinel reports.

    Suggs suffered the injury in the first quarter after making contact with Donovan Mitchell, and he stayed down after the play. If Suggs is unable to return, look for Markelle Fultz and Cole Anthony to shoulder the load at point guard.

    1h ago

    Embiid (left knee injury recovery) has been cleared to play in Monday's Game 2 against the Knicks, Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reports.

    Embiid and Tyrese Maxey (illness) will suit up Monday, although coach Nick Nurse noted that Maxey will operate at less than 100 percent while still dealing with symptoms. Embiid logged 37 minutes of action despite briefly exiting Saturday's contest before halftime, so he'll likely be leaned on even if gimpy.

    Maxey missed the team's morning shootaround due to an illness but went through a pregame warmup and was cleared to suit up a few minutes later. Joel Embiid (knee) remains questionable, and Maxey might not be at 100 percent despite being available. On Saturday, Maxey posted 33 points (14-26 FG) in 44 minutes during the 111-104 Game 1 loss.

  • Chet Holmgren OKC C
    Thunder's Chet Holmgren: Swats five shots in win Sunday
    10h ago

    Holmgren ended with 15 points (6-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, five blocks and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 victory over the Pelicans in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Holmgren had all sorts of problems with Jonas Valanciunas on the glass, and his shooting wasn't entirely efficient. However, the rookie didn't look outmatched in the first playoff appearance of his career, particularly on the defensive end with a few key blocks down the stretch, including one in the dying stages of the fourth quarter where the Pelicans were creeping on a comeback. Holmgren is not going to lead the Thunder in scoring since he plays alongside Jalen Williams and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but he's still an excellent two-way threat every time he steps on the court.

    Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Pulls down 20 boards in loss Sunday
    10h ago

    Valanciunas registered 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 FT), 20 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Sunday's 94-92 loss to the Thunder in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Valanciunas was heavily criticized for his play during the loss to the Lakers in the first round of the Play-In Tournament, but he's responded extremely well with back-to-back double-doubles against the Kings and Thunder. The veteran big man feasted on the glass against Chet Holmgren and used his physicality to dominate. Expect him to play a prominent role in the paint in Game 2 on Wednesday, especially with Zion Williamson (hamstring) still sidelined.

    Clippers' Ivica Zubac: Owns glass in double-double showing

    Zubac logged 20 points (10-17 FG, 0-1 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 victory over the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    Zubac led all players in rebounds while ending as one of three Clippers with 20 or more points in a double-double showcase. Zubac posted four games during the regular season with 15 or more rebounds, adding 20 or more points in one of those outings. Los Angeles will look for Zubac to continue to own the battle in the paint this series while also providing a much-needed spark offensively in a favorable matchup against Dallas.

    Heat's Bam Adebayo: Leading scorer in defeat

    Adebayo closed Sunday's 114-94 loss to Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals with 24 points (10-18 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes.

    Adebayo led all players in scoring while pacing the Heat in rebounds to go along with a trio of assists in a losing effort. Adebayo recorded 24 or more points in 14 games during the regular season, entering the playoffs with two straight games with at least 17 points and six boards. We could see Adebayo's workload continue to increase in the opening round series with Jimmy Butler still recovering from a knee injury.

    Portis posted 15 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes before fouling out of Sunday's 109-94 victory over the Pacers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

    Portis remained in the starting lineup for Game 1, filling the vacant spot left by Giannis Antetkounmpo (calf). While he is certainly not a like-for-like replacement, Portis is more than capable of producing, especially on the offensive end. With Antetokounmpo likely to miss at least another game, Portis should continue to serve as the second or third option on offense for the time being.

    Siakam scored a game-high 36 points, doing everything he could to keep the Pacers competitive during Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Bucks. It was arguably his best game since arriving in Indiana, a performance he will need to replicate should they hope to steal Game 2 before heading home.

    Washington racked up 11 points (4-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, one block and two steals over 37 minutes during Sunday's 109-97 loss to the Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

    The big man started alongside Daniel Gafford up front and knocked down a pair of threes on his way to joining Kyrie Irving (31 points) and Luka Doncic (33) as the only Mavs players in double figures. The fact that Washington saw 37 minutes of action bodes well for his fantasy value as the series moves along.

    Tatum did a little bit of everything for Boston in its Game 1 victory, leading all players in rebounds and assists while pacing the Celtics in scoring along with a pair of steals. The triple-double was Tatum's first of the 2023-24 season. During the regular season, he surpassed 10 assists in one game while hauling in 10 or more boards 24 times.

    While it's encouraging that Leonard will practice Monday after missing Sunday's Game 1 against Dallas, the Clippers won't be doing contact during the session and will treat it more like a walkthrough, per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com. The team will monitor the 32-year-old ahead of Tuesday's Game 2, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Leonard labeled as a game-time decision.

    Williams struggled from beyond the arc, but other than that, he delivered a solid performance as the Thunder barely escaped with the victory in Game 1. This was Williams' best scoring performance since March 31, when he scored 33 points in a win over the Knicks just before missing four contests with an ankle injury. He should remain a vital cog in the Thunder's offensive scheme for Game 2 on Wednesday.

    Murphy extended his streak of games scoring in double figures to 14 appearances (12 starts), and he ended up as New Orleans' leading scorer in this Game 1 loss while carrying the team at times in the second and third quarters. Murphy can get hot in any moment of a game, but even if that doesn't happen, he sees enough touches to make a consistent impact on offense. Expect Murphy to remain in the first unit -- while experiencing a slight uptick in his usage rate -- as long as Zion Williamson (hamstring) remains out.

    Gilgeous-Alexander looked a bit off at times and wasn't as dominant as he's been in previous games, but the star floor general came through when the team needed him the most. An off-balance shot in the dying stages of the fourth quarter would be the game-winner for a Thunder team that had to work harder than expected to get past New Orleans. Gilgeous-Alexander was massive during the regular season and was named a finalist for the MVP Award on Sunday, so he's expected to continue leading the way for the Thunder in this series. Game 2 is scheduled for Wednesday at Paycom Center.

    White returned for the start of the postseason after missing Boston's final two games of the regular season with an ankle injury, crossing the 20-point mark while connecting on a team-high-tying mark from three and concluding as one of two players with 20 or more points in a Game 1 victory. White surpassed the 20-point mark in 19 games over the regular season, doing so for the first time since recording 22 points on March 28.

He also executed poorly in the final play of the game, where the Pelicans could've gone for a tie or a win.

    Lillard scored all of his team-high 35 points in the first half, the most ever through two quarters by a Bucks player in playoff history. Although he failed to score in the second half, the damage was done, leading his team to an emphatic Game 1 victory. With Giannis Antetokounmpo likely to miss at least another game, Lillard will need to come out firing again Tuesday if the Bucks are to secure a 2-0 series lead.
