James Ennis started the second half in place of Luol Deng.

It was previously reported that Michael Beasley would replace Deng in the lineup, however it appears that James Ennis will be the guy going forward for the second half. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Luol Deng (knee) won't return Sunday.

Michael Beasley is likely the candidate to replace the Deng starting minutes for the rest of the way. There is no word on the long term implications of the injury yet, but if there is, Beasley might be a solid play for the rest of the season. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Iman Shumpert (ankle) wanted to return Sunday, but the team held him out for precautionary reasons.

With the roll that Cleveland has been on, there is no reason to push Shump before he is 100-percent. Expect J.R. Smith to continue to get the majority of the minutes at the two.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Vince Carter will start in place of Tony Allen (left hamstring strain).

Carter's best fantasy days are behind him for sure, however tonight may be a good chance to get some final value out of him before he retires. Give him a look in daily leagues if you need a low priced option at the two guard spot. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Athletics reassign Luke Carlin, Max Muncy and Andy Parrino to minor league camp.

One of these things is not like the other. Muncy is a 23-year old prospect, while Carlin and Parrino are older journeymen. Muncy, a first baseman, his 21 home runs in 2013 at High-A in 428 plate appearances. But the power hasn't translated to Double-A yet as he hit just seven home runs in 530 plate appearances there last year. Muncy isn't really a prospect you have to know, but he's far more notable than Carlin and Parrino. Analysis: Brett Talley

Richard Jefferson will start in place of Monta Ellis Sunday.

Ellis plays a little more than 33 minutes per game, so Jefferson and Devin Harris should be a boost in minutes Sunday against the Pacers. Analysis: Brett Talley

Bruce Rondon (neck) is scheduled to pitch Monday, depending on how he feels, manager Brad Ausmus said.

Rondon had a respectable debut in 2014 with a 3.45 ERA and 24.6 percent strikeout rate in 28 2/3 innings. Joe Nathan's hold on the closer job is tenuous, and the next man in line, Joakim Soria, has had issues with health, so you can envision some scenario where Rondon is pitching in late game situations and possibly even the ninth inning at some point. He's a name to keep in the back of your mind. Analysis: Brett Talley

Kevin Love (back) will not return to Sunday's game.

Love had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 31 minutes prior to leaving the game. Again, Tristan Thompson would be the main beneficiary if Love misses any time. Analysis: Brett Talley

Ricky Rubio (ankle) has a good shot to return on Monday.

Rubio last played on March 18, and Lorenzo Brown has played 35+ minutes in the last four games Rubio has missed. Brown topped out at 10 points and eight assists as his best efforts in Rubio's absence, so he shouldn't cut into Rubio's playing time when Ricky returns. Analysis: Brett Talley

Kevin Love left Sunday's game and went straight to the locker room.

Love' scoring pace and rebounding average have been a bit off in the last month or so. If he misses any time, Tristan Thompson would likely see a boost in value and minutes. Analysis: Brett Talley

Update: Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) will not return to Sunday's game.

Dieng failed to score in nine minutes on Sunday before exiting. With Nikola Pekovic sitting this one out, Dieng missed an opportunity for a big game with more minuntes. Analysis: Brett Talley

Coach Byron Scott says there's thought of shutting Nick Young (knee) down for season.

Young hasn't played since late February, so Wesley Johnson should continue to see around 30 minutes per game with Young out. Analysis: Brett Talley
