B. Griffin - PF
Griffin is probable for Monday's Game 4 against the Bucks with left knee soreness, Vincent Ellis of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Griffin surprisingly made his series debut in Saturday's Game 3 after missing the first two outings with the injured left knee. And while he was visibly hampered by the ailment while sporting a giant brace, he still managed to post 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists across 31 minutes in the loss. Now, despite being a game away from elimination, it looks like Griffin is going down with the ship Monday night, but his status will still need to be confirmed prior to tip.

D. Gallinari - SF
Gallinari compiled 16 points (5-20 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, and four assists in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to Golden State.
Gallinari struggled mightily from the floor Sunday, finishing with 16 points on 5-of-20 shooting. That makes a combined 7-of-33 over the course of the last two games, his poor shooting coming at the worst possible time for the Clippers. Despite the recent inefficiencies, Gallinari has had a fantastic season and certainly rewarded those who took a risk on him in their respective drafts. He will look to bounce back in Game 5 of the series, however, it could be a case of too little, too late for the eighth-seeded Clippers.

P. Beverley - PG
Beverley totaled 12 points (4-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Warriors.
Beverley ended with a double-double Sunday, adding three blocks in what was a much-improved effort when compared to his previous outing. That being said, it was not enough as the Clippers fell by eight points, moving to within one loss of a round-one exit. Beverley has certainly left his mark on the series and has proven himself to still have value over the back half of the season.

Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 25 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 31 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 loss to the Warriors.
Gilgeous-Alexander began Sunday's game red-hot, scoring 14 of the first 17 Clipper points. He slowed from that point but still ended with a career-high 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting. The Clippers are now just one loss away from elimination with Game 5 to be held in Oakland on Wednesday. Whatever the outcome, Gilgeos-Alexander has had a strong rookie season, progressing much faster than anyone would have expected.

A. Bogut - C
Bogut amassed eight points (4-7 FG), 10 rebounds, and four assists in 21 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 victory over the Clippers.
Bogut managed just 21 minutes before fouling out Sunday but was still able to leave his mark on the game with eight points and 10 rebounds. He continues to thrive as the starting center and has certainly been a nice addition for the Warriors. He doesn't have the upside of a player like DeMarcus Cousins (quad) but is a perfect fit for the uptempo Warriors offense and should continue to see solid minutes for the remainder of the playoffs.

K. Durant - SF
Durant totaled 33 points (12-21 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, and one steal in 38 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 victory over the Clippers.
Durant poured in a game-high 33 points Sunday, having his way with the Clippers as the Warriors took a stranglehold on the series. He has now dominated the last two games and has put the disappointing performance in Game 2 well and truly behind him. The Warriors will now head home where they will look to secure a place in the second round where they will meet either the Jazz or the Rockets, the later of which hold a 3-0 series lead.

K. Thompson - SG
Thompson finished with 32 points (12-20 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), and one rebound in 40 minutes during Sunday's 113-105 victory over the Clippers.
Thompson came out on fire Sunday, scoring 27 of his 32 points in the first half. Thompson is certainly able to light it up for long stretches and Sunday was a great example. He had been relatively quiet to begin the series but got things going here and will look to continue his hot shooting when the Warriors attempt to close out the series in Game 5 Wednesday.

D. Collison - PG
Collison totaled 19 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 33 minutes during Sunday's 110-106 loss to the Celtics.
Collison dropped 19 points in Sunday's Game 4 loss, rounding out his season with a nice all-around performance. Collison, along with a number of other players, was forced into a more sizeable role when Victor Oladipo was lost for the season. He finished with season averages of 6.0 assists and 1.4 steals while also shooting efficiently from both the field and the free-throw line. He is not getting any younger and could be a point-guard to target in the later rounds of next seasons drafts with Oladipo a chance to miss the beginning of the season.
