Deron Williams Headshot

Deron Williams (hip) has been upgraded to probable Friday.

Added 11/04/16 11:43 am (EST)   Source
Williams has moved from "questionable at best" to questionable to now probable for tonight's game. Clearly a good sign for his owners but should not be expected to see the full complement of minutes that he's accustomed to. As such, Williams is probably not someone you should be targeting in DFS cash games tonight. J.J. Barea will likely work in behind Williams more than usual.
Rudy Gobert Headshot

Gobert (ankle) will play in Sunday's Game 7 against the Clippers, Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Added 2:17 pm (EST)
Gobert's availability was originally up in the air after he left Friday's Game 6 during the fourth quarter with a left ankle sprain, but he'll ultimately play through any lingering pain in Sunday's elimination game. He'll draw the start at center per usual, with Derrick Favors and Boris Diaw also seeing minutes in the Jazz's frontcourt.
Markieff Morris Headshot

Morris injured his ankle during Sunday's Game 1 against the Celtics and is questionable to return.

Added 2:05 pm (EST)
Morris landed on the foot of Celtics center Al Horford as he came down from a jump shot during the second quarter, but he was able to stay in the game briefly to shoot a free throw. Morris then headed to the locker room to receive attention, while the turned ankle looked to be severe at first glance. Ian Mahinmi is out as well due to a calf injury, so the Wizards' frontcourt will certainly be thin if Morris can't return.
Will Barton Headshot

Barton (foot) will not extend his contract with the Nuggets as he'll become an unrestricted free agent in 2018, Harrison Wind of reports.

Added 1:35 pm (EST)
Barton originally signed a three-year contract worth $10.6 million in 2015, while he's set to play the upcoming 2017-18 season on the third and final year before testing free agency. Barton's goal is to be a starter somewhere, but the Nuggets will likely continue deploying Gary Harris (foot) as their No. 1 shooting guard.
Alec Burks Headshot

Burks (knee) will remain sidelined for Sunday's Game 7 against the Clippers.

Added Yesterday 10:30 pm (EST)
Burks, who's missed the entirety of the postseason thus far, will be sidelined for the final game of the Jazz's series against the Clippers. Though he doesn't play a major role on the team, the Jazz are likely hoping that the 24-year-old can recover before their potential second-round series, as he averaged 6.7 points across 15.5 minutes per game during the regular season.
Rudy Gobert Headshot

Gobert, who exited Friday's Game 6 loss to the Clippers during the fourth quarter with a mild left ankle sprain, is being considered probable for Sunday's Game 7, Andy Larsen of reports.

Added Yesterday 9:47 pm (EST)
Gobert's designation as probable is likely just an exercise in caution, as it was reported earlier Saturday morning that he would be good to go for Sunday's Game 7 with no workload restriction after his X-rays came back negative. More word on his availability should come following the team's Sunday morning shootaround, though he should be expected to take part in the contest barring an unforeseen setback.
Ian Mahinmi Headshot

Mahinmi (calf) will be sidelined for Sunday's Game 1 against the Celtics.

Added Yesterday 6:41 pm (EST)
Mahinmi, who has reportedly been improving in his individual workouts, will still remain off the floor for the Wizards during Game 1 of their series against the Celtics. Mahinmi missed all of the Wizards' first-round matchup against the Hawks and remains without a real timetable for a return. His status will likely be updated sometime after Sunday's contest.
Dante Cunningham Headshot

Cunningham said Saturday that he intends to decline his player option for the 2017-18 season, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

Added Yesterday 12:27 pm (EST)
The decision doesn't come as much of a surprise considering Westbrook was set to make just over $3.1 million next season. The 30-year-old, who appeared in 66 games for New Orleans, will likely seek a longer-term deal as a free agent, and chances are he'll draw considerable interest after shooting nearly 40 percent from three in 2016-17.
Fred VanVleet Headshot

VanVleet was recalled from the D-League on Saturday.

Added Yesterday 11:28 am (EST)
With the D-League season concluded, VanVleet will return to the Raptors in advance of Monday's Game 1 against the Cavs. Expect the rookie out of Wichita State to simply provide depth at point guard.
Pascal Siakam Headshot

Siakam was recalled from the D-League on Saturday.

Added Yesterday 11:27 am (EST)
Siakam helped the Raptors 905 take home the D-League championship earlier in the week, and he'll now rejoin the Raptors in advance of Monday's Game 1 against Cleveland. The rookie started at power forward for most of the first half of the season, but he all but fell out of the rotation after Toronto acquired P.J. Tucker and Serge Ibaka at the trade deadline.
Bruno Caboclo Headshot

Caboclo has been recalled from the D-League.

Added Yesterday 11:25 am (EST)
With the Raptors 905 taking home the D-League championship earlier in the week, Caboclo will return to the Raptors as they begin Round 2 of the postseason Monday in Cleveland. Caboclo, who is still considered a developmental prospect, likely won't make an impact for Toronto against the Cavs.
