3 Hrs Memphis Grizzlies
Tayshaun Prince sprained his ankle during Saturday's Game 3 defeat, finishing with only seven points and one rebound in 21 minutes.
Prince played 16 minutes in Game 2 when he was healthy, and he was on the court late in the fourth quarter and overtime, but his ankle could swell overnight. The Grizzlies return on Monday with their playoff lives at stake, so keep an eye out for updates -- if Tayshaun is limited in any way, Quincy Pondexter (16 points, three 3-pointers) will step into an even bigger role.
3 Hrs San Antonio Spurs
Tony Parker (calf) overcame a slow start to finish Game 3's comeback victory with 26 points on 11-of-22 shooting, four rebounds, five assists and three steals.
Parker also turned the ball over seven times, tying his season high, and his sputtering start was part of the reason Memphis roared to an 18-point lead in the first quarter. His calf didn't seem to be a problem after that, however, as the Spurs rallied for the win in overtime behind Parker and a brilliant effort from Tim Duncan, who had 24 points, 10 boards, five assists and two blocks. San Antonio will try for a series sweep in Game 4 on Monday.
5 Hrs Memphis Grizzlies
Tayshaun Prince sprained his right ankle during Game 3 vs. the Spurs on Saturday, but he's expected to return.
Prince limped off in the second quarter, after the Grizzlies' big early lead had been chipped down to single-digits, but it sounds like he avoided any serious injury.
6 Hrs Miami Heat
The NBA is reviewing several plays from Game 2 of the Heat vs. Pacers series, including one in which Dwyane Wade collided with Lance Stephenson.
Wade was running back on defense and somewhat inexplicably jumped into Stephenson, knocking him to the court with an elbow to the head. David West is also under review for clobbering Mario Chalmers, but neither play seemed malicious or egregious enough to warrant more than a technical foul.
12 Hrs New York Knicks
Amare Stoudemire will work with Hakeem Olajuwon in August.
It will be the second summer in a row in which STAT works with The Dream on low-post moves and defense. Interestingly, Olajuwon reportedly charges $50,000 per week for the instruction at his private basketball court just outside of Houston. Despite the injuries, Stoudemire had his best shooting season as a Knick, making 57.7 percent of his shots from the floor. Of course, fantasy owners will be reluctant to draft Stoudemire next year considering he had a surgery on each knee last season.
13 Hrs Boston Celtics
Terrence Williams was back at the practice facility on Saturday.
He was arrested for second-degree domestic violence on Sunday and made some comments about the alleged altercation. "It's very frustrating, because I was there, I know what happened, and I know what didn't happen," Williams said. "To anybody reading, and everybody that's writing these stories, it makes me out to be this bandit." His status for next year is up in the air and he might have had trouble joining an NBA team even before his legal troubles.
14 Hrs Boston Celtics
Jared Sullinger (back surgery) was at Boston's practice facility on Saturday.
He's been working out for about two weeks and is hoping to be ready for training camp. Sullinger had back surgery on February 1 to end his rookie season, but he was coming around just before his injury. His 5.9 boards per game in just 19.8 minutes could make him a deeper sleeper in some fantasy leagues.
