Kevin Durant scored a game-high 33 points with eight rebounds, two assists, and a block to help lead the Thunder onto the second round with a 120-109 Game 7 win over the Grizzlies.

Durant was magnificent in Saturday's win over the Grizzlies, reaching the 30-point plateau for the fifth time in Oklahoma City's opening series. He is now averaging 29.0 points, 9.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.6 blocks over his last seven games. ANALYST: Matthew Beck

Yan Gomes is not in the Indians starting lineup on Wednesday.

Just a routine day off for Gomes, who will be replaced behind the plate by Roberto Perez. Gomes has been of no fantasy value this year, averaging .204 with three home runs and nine RBI. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Angels activated Mike Morin from the 15-day disabled list.

Morin suffered a left oblique strain on May 23, although he was suffering through an up and down season. With his rehab assignment now done, it looks like Morin will get recalled to the majors as Cam Bedrosian was optioned to Triple-A to make room on the roster. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Update: Shane Robinson was removed from Wednesday's game with a left elbow contusion.

Robinson took a Johnny Cueto pitch off the elbow and stayed in the game to run the bases but was eventually replaced by Eduardo Escobar. Robinson could miss a few games depending on the level of swelling and how it affects his range of motion. A DL stint could be on the horizon but it's more likely he will be listed as day-to-day. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Jean Segura is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Segura is just getting a day off here. Hernan Perez will start at shortstop and bat seventh against the Phillies' Aaron Harang--who has been atrocious in the past month and a half. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Josh Hamilton is not in the Rangers starting lineup on Wednesday.

Hamilton was just activated from the DL yesterday after being sidelined with a hamstring injury on June 4. The Rangers are probably just trying to slowly get Hamilton back in a groove. Matt Joyce is in left field and is batting seventh after the club sent rookie power hitter Joey Gallo back down to Triple-A to make room for Hamilton. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Suns have signed PG Brandon Knight to a 5-year, $70 million extension.

The Suns acquired Knight in a three-team deal with the Bucks and 76ers this season, although ankle and heel injuries limited him to just 11 games with the team. Phoenix hopes the young point guard can help replace Goran Dragic, who was traded to the Heat midway through the year. Knight has averaged 15.2 points and 4.5 assists over his four-year career. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Kevin Love will accept a five-year, $110 million contract extension with the Cavaliers.

Love has been saying for awhile now that he's going to return to the Cavs, but now it's clear he's going to follow through on his statements. "After meeting with my teammates and with the front office, it was clear Cleveland was the place for me," Love told The Players' Tribune. "We’re all on the same page and we’re all in. We have unfinished business and now it’s time to get back to work."  Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Cavaliers and Tristan Thompson are nearing agreement on deal that will pay him in excess of $80 million.

Other than LeBron and Kevin Love, re-signing Thompson is the Cavs' No. 1 priority. He has a big payday coming after being LeBron's main wingman on their Finals run. Thompson is a restricted free agent who will be getting either a max or near-max deal. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Memphis and Mo Williams are closing in on a deal.

It was reported earlier in the week that Williams may join old teammate LeBron James and the Cavs, where Williams made a living from 2008-11. He's an affordable option who could provide some depth for an offense that is desperate for some bench play. Williams split time between the Timberwolves and Hornets while averaging 14 points per game last season. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Shane Robinson left Wednesday's game with an elbow injury.

Flame thrower Johnny Cueto pegged Robinson and he appeared to be in a lot of pain. He might need X-rays but Robinson's status is uncertain going forward so monitor the situation. Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Sonny Gray (bacterial gastroenteritis) is still in hospital, but could be released Wednesday or Thursday.

Gray was scratched from last night's start, but his illness has gone on a little longer than expected. The club brought up Chris Bassitt from Triple-A Nashville to start against the Rockies yesterday--he took a loss after going five innings and allowing just one earned run. They'll keep Bassitt around a bit longer in case Gray's illness drags on even longer. Gray (9-3) is the AL leader in ERA (2.09). Analysis: Zack Carpenter

Clippers and Lakers are likely destinations for Tyson Chandler if he leaves Dallas as it increasingly appears .

This is a very intriguing storyline if Chandler ends up going to the Clippers, as their stud center DeAndre Jordan is seeking a max contract this summer and if Chandler goes to the Clips it most likely means Jordan's departure. And the Lakers are pulling out all the stops to land a home run free agent, including LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love and Jordan. Although Chandler would be far from the long-term answer they need, the Lakers need all the help they can get. Analysis: Zack Carpenter
