Marreese Speights Headshot

Speights opted out of his $2.1 million contract for next season Tuesday and will become an unrestricted free agent.

Speights signed with the Clippers for the veteran minimum last offseason and ended up playing in all 82 regular season games for the first time in his now nine-year NBA career. He did, however, play just 15.7 minutes per game, as the former Florida standout has played in a fairly limited role for most of his career. Now, after opting out, Speights may be looking for a larger role and pay raise elsewhere in the NBA. The big man is coming off yet another solid season from behind the arc, as he hit 37.2 percent of his shots from long range while taking a career-high 3.4 threes per game.

Amir Johnson Headshot

Johnson (shoulder) will go through shootaround and pre-game warmups with the intent of testing his shoulder up until the tipoff of Tuesday's Game 4 matchup against the Cavaliers, Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe reports.

There hasn't been any word about Johnson's MRI results, but it could be assumed it's nothing major if he's questionable for Tuesday's game. Johnson said the shoulder is 'feeling better', which is also a positive sign for his Game 4 availability. All that in mind, Johnson definitely remains a risky DFS play due to the fact he could either get scratched right before tipoff or have his minutes limited.

Deron Williams Headshot

Williams missed morning shootaround due to an illness but should be considered probable for Tuesday's Game 4 matchup against the Celtics.

Williams has been seeing 15.0 minutes per game during these playoffs, so his potential absence would be significant. While Williams is expected to play, Iman Shumpert would likely absorb most of the minutes as the reserve point guard behind starter Kyrie Irving if Williams ultimately remains sidelined.

Stephen Curry Headshot

Curry posted 36 points (14-24 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists and five rebounds across 34 minutes during a 129-115 win over the Spurs on Monday.

Curry's 36 points marked a game high as he led the team to its third straight NBA Finals appearance with the win. He has saved some of his best performances of these playoffs for close-out games, as he has scored at least 30 points in each of the team's close-out games. Curry continues to shoot the ball at a scorching rate, as he's now shot better than 50 percent from the field in eight of the last nine games.

Klay Thompson Headshot

Thompson contributed 10 points (3-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes during a 129-115 win over the Spurs on Monday.

After one of his best performances of these playoffs in the Game 3 win, Thompson struggled in the series-clinching victory on Monday. After an extremely strong regular season, he has strangely struggled in the playoffs, as he's shot 40 percent from the field or worse in seven of the team's 12 playoffs games. His consistency will be something to monitor during the Finals.
Yesterday 11:58 pm (EST)
Manu Ginobili Headshot

Ginobili went for 15 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, three steals and one rebound across 32 minutes during a 129-115 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

In what could have been the final game of his career, Ginobili turned in another good performance as he scored at least 15 points for the third time in the series. Ginobili received a larger workload in the series after Kawhi Leonard (ankle) went down, and he thrived in that role, as he averaged 13.8 points on 58.8 percent shooting, 2.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game.
Yesterday 11:57 pm (EST)
Kyle Anderson Headshot

Anderson recorded 20 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, four steals and two assists across 27 minutes during a 129-115 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

Anderson's 20 points marked a team high and also a season high in the season-ending loss. His role increased after Kawhi Leonard (ankle) was injured, and was quite effective in Game 4, as the four steals fell just one shy of his season high. Anderson's 2016-17 season wasn't particularly inspiring, but performances like this show what Anderson is capable of on occasion when given a decent workload.

Kyle Anderson Headshot

Anderson will return to the bench for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

Anderson started Game 3 as the Spurs attempted to go to a smaller unit, posting six points, nine rebounds, five assists and a block across 20 minutes. While it was a solid performance all around, the Spurs still took the loss, so in an effort to potentially spark a change, they'll go with Manu Ginobili in the top unit instead. Anderson should still see an elevated role with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) out, but he may not reach the 20 minutes he logged during Game 3.

Manu Ginobili Headshot

Ginobili will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports

Ginobili is coming off an impressive Game 3 performance where he posted 21 points in 18 minutes, so he's earned a spot in the top unit with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) still sidelined with an injury. He should see an uptick in playing time with the move, which also likely means a slight decrease in playing time for Kyle Anderson, who will head back to the bench in the corresponding move. Ginobili has averaged 13.3 points, 1.3 assists and 1.3 steals across 16.3 minutes over the first three games of the series.
Yesterday 9:17 pm (EST)
Patrick McCaw Headshot

McCaw will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.

The Warriors went with JaVale McGee as a starter in place of Zaza Pachulia (knee) during Game 3, but will move to a smaller lineup featuring McCaw, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in the frontcourt. McCaw will likely see an increase in playing time after logging just 11 minutes during Game 3, which should come with a temporary boost in his fantasy value as well.
