Richie Shaffer Headshot

Shaffer is competing for an Opening Day roster spot at third base, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Shaffer, the first-round pick of the Rays back in 2012, split time between the majors and Triple-A level last season for Tampa Bay. He appeared in 20 games with the big club but didn't do anything of note outside of his high strikeout percentage.

Erik Gonzalez Headshot

Gonzalez is among a handful of players battling for the starting third base job on Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez is in the hunt for the starting third base job with Jose Ramirez expected to slide over to second base with Jason Kipnis (shoulder) on the shelf. He will be battling Giovanny Urshela, Yandy Diaz and Richie Shaffer for the gig.

Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup against the Spurs.

Despite being upgraded to questionable, Thomas will ultimately sit out for Saturday's tilt against the Spurs with a sore hip. As a result, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn will likely see additional run.
7:12 pm (EST)
Marreese Speights Headshot

Speights scored 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 22 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 108-95 win over the Jazz.

It's his fourth double-double of the season, and came in a crucial win that not only secured a playoff spot for the Clippers but put them a half-game behind the Jazz for the fourth seed in the Western Conference and home court advantage in the first round. With Los Angeles' frontcourt healthy, though, there isn't much court time available for Speights right now -- Saturday's 22 minutes were his most in a game since late January.
7:10 pm (EST)
Jose Ramirez Headshot

Ramirez is expected to work at second base while Jason Kipnis (shoulder) is sidelined, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

The Indians want to get their money's worth out of Ramirez after just inking him to a four-year contract extension this week. The team will have a battle in the remaining weeks of camp to determine who will start at the hot corner with Ramirez sliding over to the cornerstone.
7:09 pm (EST)
Carmelo Anthony Headshot

Anthony (knee) will be sidelined for Saturday's matchup against the Spurs.

Anthony's left knee soreness that caused him to miss Thursday's loss to the Trail Blazers is seemingly still giving him issues, and he'll be absent for Saturday's matchup against the Spurs. Mindaugas Kuzminskas will likely draw another start in Anthony's place and see extended run, while Justin Holiday could also see an expanded role in the Knicks' rotation.
7:08 pm (EST)
Derrick Rose Headshot

Rose (foot) will play during Saturday's tilt against the Spurs.

Despite dealing with soreness in his right foot after sustaining an injury during Wednesday's tilt against the Jazz, Rose will suit up for Saturday's matchup against the Spurs. As a result, Ron Baker will probably head back to the bench and see a reduced role.
7:06 pm (EST)
Jamal Crawford Headshot

Crawford scored 28 points (8-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT) while adding three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 108-95 win over the Jazz.

The Clippers' bench actually outscored their starters 56-52 in this one, with Crawford leading the way in a huge win that not only clinched a playoff spot for the team but put them just a half-game behind Utah for the fourth seed in the Western Conference and home court advantage in the first round. The 37-year-old is headed for his worst scoring average since 2002-03, but Crawford stepped up Saturday and scored 20 or more points for the first time since he dropped 25 on the Bulls back on March 4.
7:05 pm (EST)
Sergio Romo Headshot

Romo (back) tossed a scoreless inning Saturday against the A's, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

After battling a sore back for over a week, Romo worked his way back onto the mound Saturday and fired a perfect frame. Romo told reporters after his outing that both his back and his arm felt fine after the outing, which is an encouraging sign for his status heading into Opening Day.
7:05 pm (EST)
Kyle Anderson Headshot

Anderson will draw the start at shooting guard Saturday against the Knicks, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

With Danny Green (rest) out Saturday, coach Gregg Popovich will opt to insert Anderson into the starting five. Anderson's playing time has fluctuated heavily throughout the season, but in 12 games as a starter, he's averaged 5.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 25.7 minutes per game. So, even though he could be in line for a solid bump in workload, he may not be the best low-priced DFS play.
