LaMarcus Aldridge led the Blazers to a 3-1 series lead over the Rockets Sunday as he had a game-high 29 points with 10 boards, two assists, two steals, and four blocks of the 123-120 overtime victory.
Aldridge posted his third double-double of the series on Sunday night after converting 52.2 percent of his shots from the field, which was the third time he shot over the 50 percent mark over the same time frame. Without Aldridge the Blazers would likely either be down in the series or already eliminated, instead they are only one win away from advancing to the next round. If this type of production carries over to next season, there is no reason to think he should not be a first round pick in all fantasy formats. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Colts signed running back Zurlon Tipton.
The Colts lost Ahmad Bradshaw for the season with a wrist injury on Sunday. Indianapolis decided to promote running back Zurlon Tipton from their practice squad. He will provide the back up duties to the old veteran Frank Gore in the Colts back field. Analysis: Drew Phelps
Luol Deng (hamstring) is officially listed as out for the Heat on Monday.
There was not much of a sweat as to whether or not Deng would play on Monday night but the Heat are hoping that he'll be able to return to the court on Thursday against the Thunder. This will be his third consecutive missed game. The hamstring is a tricky thing and it depends player to player how fast they can return. "My jump shot is fine. It's when I try to sprint, and I'm trying to just take off. That's when it's troubling me," Deng said. Gerald Green will start on Monday and should make for a nice daily fantasy value play.

Marc Anthony is now representing Aroldis Chapman.
In the spirit of Jay-Z, Anthony has taken his company, Magnus Media, and launche da sports division as a joint venture with veteran agents Barry Praver and Scott Shapiro, who will team with Magnus Media CEO Michel Vega to oversee the operations of the newly formed Magnus Sports. Praver and Shapiro have an extensive history working with Latino ballplayers and the expectation is that a number of them will follow the two to Anthony's group. This shouldn't have any effect on negotiations moving forward for the potentially soon-to-be-dealt Chapman. Analysis: Howard Bender
