Markieff Morris was detained Thursday at Philadelphia International Airport because of suspected marijuana in his bag.

This will do little to help Morris' reputation as a self-centered player and a red flag player for many NBA teams. Of course, it is not yet confirmed that there was actually marijuana in his bag.

Anthony Davis did not make an All-NBA team this season which could cost him $24 million on his future contract.

It's unfortunate for Davis that he did not make an All-NBA team because his numbers we're basically on par with the one's he put up during his 2015 campaign. The Pelicans couldn't stay healthy and Davis was the one consistent player they ran out there each and everyday. No matter how much money he's going to make, there's no way losing out on $24 million doesn't sting.

Steven Adams (ankle) is expected to play in Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals.

Adams has been beaten up in this series between the ankle issue and getting essentially punted below the belt by Draymond Green. Though he missed a part of Game 4 getting treatment on the ankle, he was able to return to the court which makes this news partially expected. There are still a day or so before tip-off so until he makes it through the morning shootaround, it won't be official.

Patrick Patterson has a left hand contusion but will return Wednesday.

Once again, Toronto is playing poorly in Cleveland, so if he experiences any more discomfort, expect him to be pulled the rest of the way. The contusion isn't considered major, seeing as he is able to return.

Bismack Biyombo will remain in the starting lineup for Game 5 on Wednesday despite the return of Jonas Valanciunas (ankle).

Rightfully so, as he has been a revelation for the Raptors since being injected into the starting lineup a couple of weeks ago. Vala?i?nas does possess an offensive game that can't be ignored, however he will be best served off the bench going forward.

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) has no minute-limit and coach Dwane Casey hopes to play him early in the game.

Vala?i?nas has been out for a couple of weeks now, but appears ready to go just when the Raptors need him most. It is unlikely that he will get the starting nod considering how good Bismack Biyombo has been as the starting center, however Vala?i?nas's deft scoring touch is not something that can be left on the bench for too long. Being matched up early and often against the Cavs top ranked second unit will be a baptism by fire of sorts for the crafty center.
