UPDATES & NEWS
Coach Mark Jackson said he wasn't sure if Andrew Bogut (rib) would make the trip to Los Angeles.
Bogut wasn't expected to return for the playoffs anyway as he is dealing with a broken rib. It seems odd that he wouldn't travel with the team though, unless there is concern about protests and issues in Los Angeles given the Donald Sterling scandal. Regardless, Bogut was never playing so there is no fantasy impact here.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
