Fantasy Player Updates & News

Hawks F DeMarre Carroll (knee) will play in Game 3 Sunday.

The Hawks Need Carroll to play and be effective if they are to have any chance of climbing back into their series with the Cavs. With Kyle Korver out for the rest of the playoffs, Carroll and Kent Bazemore should see most of the wing minutes though Dennis Schroder will likely play more as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Kyrie Irving is taking part in Sunday's shootaround.

As late as Saturday night, it was rumored that Irving may be sidelined for the entire Eastern Conference Finals, so this news is encouraging. The Cavs own a 2-0 lead over the Hawks as the series heads to Cleveland.  Analysis: Kevin Luchansky

Kent Bazemore will start for the injured Kyle Korver.

Bazemore has averaged 4.4 points and 2.7 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game coming off of the bench in 14 games this post-season. Bazemore scored at least 10 points in five of the seven games that he played more than 30 minutes this season, making him a decent DFS sleeper. Analysis: Brad Costilo

K.J. McDaniels (elbow) is listed as probable for Game 3 on Saturday, but unlikely to see the court.

It's a very odd situation, as the Rockets have him listed at probable, meaning that they are optimistic to play, but it still appears that he is "unlikely to play," per reporter Adam Wexler. He has yet to play in the playoffs, and even if he can play will likely be limited in terms of playing time. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Update: Kyle Korver is out for the remainder of the playoffs with ankle injury.

Awful news for the Hawks, who are down 0-2 to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Kent Bazemore and John Jenkins will have to step up their play to cover the loss of the starting shooting guard for Atlanta. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Kyrie Irving is out on the practice court Saturday, wearing a soft sleeve on his left knee.

At this point Irving is questionable for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals on Sunday. If he cannot go, then Matthew Dellavedova will likely see the most action on the court, but J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert could also see an uptick in playing time as well. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jeff Van Gundy is interested in the Pelicans' vacant head coaching job.

The ESPN analyst has tossed his hat into the ring, to compete for the spot that opened when Monty Williams was fired earlier this month. Also in the mix are Bull head coach Tom Thibodeau and Warriors' associate head coach Alvin Gentry. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Scott Skiles has emerged as the strong frontrunner to become head coach of the Orlando Magic.

Skiles has coached the Suns, Bulls and Bucks dating back to as early as 1999. He actually played for the Magic from 1989 to 1994. Analysis: Howard Bender

Terrence Ross underwent surgery Friday to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from his left ankle.

Ross is expected to be ready for the regular season, but it is possible that he misses the start of training camp if there even any minor complications. Once healthy though, he should be ready to go and at full strength. Analysis: Howard Bender

Al Horford says he's fine after injuring his calf in Game 2 on Friday.

Some are saying calf while others are saying ankle. The important thing though is that Horford was back in the game and appears to be just fine. Analysis: Howard Bender

Kyle Korver's ankle X-rays were negative.

Korver left Friday's game with the ankle injury but it looks like just a sprain as there are no breaks or fractures. Consider him day-to-day for now. Analysis: Howard Bender
