Spencer Hawes (knee) is listed as doubtful for Game 6.

Hawes has seen moderate minutes during the entire year with the Hornets and that hasn't changed this postseason. However, he injured his knee in Game 5 and will likely be sitting out the team's potential series clincher at home.

Brock Holt is not in Thursday's starting lineup.

Holt will get Thursday's game off and Chris Young will start in left field. Young has had 21 career at-bats against the Braves starter and has posted a solid .286 average against him. Holt will likely be the first one off of the bench if the Sox need a pinch hitter.

Matt Wieters is not in Thursday's starting lineup.

It's just your standard off day for the oft-injured Wieters on Thursday as Calab Joseph will start behind the plate and hit ninth. Wieters has been struggling as he has just one hit in his last 12 at-bats. Wieters is striking out quite a bit early on this season and hasn't been the same hitter at the plate as he has in previous years.

Ryan Fitzpatrick has told people he would rather not play this season than play for the Jets at their current offer.

A lot of people figured either Fitzpatrick or the Jets would give in to each other's offer but it doesn't look like the Harvard educated quarterback will give an inch. Either the Jets will give him the money he wants and thinks he deserved or they have Geno Smith enter the 2016 their starting quarterback. Fitzpatrick is coming off a career-high 31 touchdown pass season in '15.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is dealing with some swelling and said he will play in Game 6.

The swelling he's dealing with on his hand is probably from all of the blocked shots he's had throughout the season. But on a serious note, once the game starts he won't even notice the pain. The adrenaline will take care of that. Whiteside is still one of the best fantasy options at center left in the playoffs.

Nicolas Batum will come off of the bench for Game 6 on Friday.

Just like he did in Game 5, Batum will come off of the bench in Game 6. Pairing himself alongside Jeremy Lin against the Heat's bench unit is dangerous and it showed last game with their plus/minus +8 in Game 5. This move, however, is detrimental to Batum's fantasy value.

Kevin Martin (illness) was a full participant at Spurs practice.

Martin has seemingly moved past this illness that kept him out of both Games 3 and 4 and will be ready for the Spurs series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Martin showed in the first two games of the series he can be an offensive spark off of the bench and the Spurs will need that to help them beat the Thunder in round two.

Carmelo Anthony believes Tom Thibodeau would have accepted the Knicks head coaching job if it was offered to him.

Thibodeau was seldom linked to the Knicks job but for whatever reason, Carmelo Anthony thinks they could have brought him in if the positioned was offered to him. It's an interesting theory, but ultimately the Timberwolves could offer him the team presidency and the keys to the car and the Knicks simply could not. Oh yeah, the Wolves also have the two first-round picks from the previous two seasons so they're trending much higher than the Knicks are.

Raiders owner Mark Davis said he wants to move the Raiders to Las Vegas and has pledged $500 million towards a new stadium.

The Davis' clan have never been shy to speak their mind and Mark wants to move out of Oakland. The Raiders aren't new to moving the franchise to a new city as they've previously moved from Los Angeles to Oakland.
