FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Tony Parker will play Friday night.

Parker is fighting through an Achilles issue, but he'll play through the pain and does not expect to miss time. That being said, he could end up playing a few less minutes than usual on Friday. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Bojan Bogdanovic will be in the Nets' starting lineup again on Saturday.

Bogdanovic replaced Markel Brown in the starting lineup for Game Two of the Nets' series and will likely stick at starting shooting guard for the foreseeable future. Analysis: Ben Diamond

David Lee will be available for Game 4 on Saturday.

Lee did not play in the Warriors' last game due to a back injury, but he should be healthy enough to log some minutes in Saturday's game. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Aron Baynes (ankle) is out Friday night for the Spurs.

Baynes could be out for a few more games due to the issue, with Tiago Splitter will seeing an increase in playing time while Baynes is injured. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Amir Johnson moves back into the starting lineup replacing Tyler Hansbrough for Game 3 Friday night in Washington.

Tyler Hansbrough has been brutal lately for the Raptors, so Johnson could take over the starting role at power forward for the remainder of the postseason should he do well on Friday. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Raymond Felton will start at point guard for the injured Rajon Rondo on Friday.

The "injured" Rondo is unlikely to play another game with the Mavs after the point guard failed miserably for the team down the stretch. Felton and J.J. Barea are likely to alternate as starters for the team at point guard in the postseason.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is listed as probable for Saturday's game.

Afflalo has missed the last two weeks because of his injured right shoulder, but is looking like he will return to action for game three against the Grizzlies. As the Trail Blazers are down 2-0 in this series, the return of their starting Shooting Guard, who averaged 13.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game this year, is a welcome sight, and might be the only chance that they have at getting back in this series. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Derrick Rose said he feels "normal" after playing 48 minutes in Game 3.

What are "things nobody expected to hear Derrick Rose say this season?" In all seriousness, Rose was fantastic in the 113-106 victory over the Bucks, scoring 34 points on 12-23 shooting, while adding eight assists, five rebounds and three steals in his 48 minutes of action. There's no question that Rose is an elite talent when he's on the court, the only question is: "how long will he be able to remain on the court?" Analysis: Brad Costilo

Chris Kaman (ankle) expects to play Saturday.

After missing game two, Kaman will return to his role as Robin Lopez' back-up in the middle for the Trail Blazers. Kaman averaged 8.6 points and 6.5 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game this year. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Tony Parker (Achilles) will play on Friday.

This was expected after Parker left the last game late with soreness in his Achilles. He's shown little progress lately and will be forced to miss Friday's action. He is also going to be questionable for Game 4. Analysis: Howard Bender

Tiago Splitter (calf) is available to play for as many minutes as needed on Friday.

Splitter's calf has had ample time to heal and he seems to be doing very well in his recovery. He'll get the starting nod and with no minutes restrictions, should see plenty of time with Andrew Baynes out. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aron Baynes is doubtful to play Friday with a right ankle injury.

Baynes missed Game 2 with the sprained ankle and there doesn't appear to be any improvement. Tiago Splitter figures to start at center and see the bulk of the playing time. Analysis: Howard Bender

Mavericks Coach Rick Carlisle said Devin Harris will play Friday.

Harris continues to move in and out of the lineup as he deals with regular flare-ups from his big toe injury. He's missed three of the last five games and the two that he's played have been extremely limited on the minutes front. He'll give it a try on Friday, but don't expect him to play more than 15 or 20 minutes.  Analysis: Howard Bender
