McDaniels will come off the bench for Tuesday's play-in game against the Pacers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.

It's win or go home for the Hornets, and coach James Borrego will send McDaniels to the bench while starting Bismack Biyombo to go up against Domantas Sabonis. In his past seven games off the bench, McDaniels has averaged 7.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 18.9 minutes.

Allen (abdomen) is questionable for Wednesday's play-in game against the Spurs.
EDGE Analysis
Abdominal soreness has caused Allen to miss the past seven games, and he was considered week-to-week. But with the Grizzlies' season on the line, he's been upgraded to questionable.

DTDTrey Lyles

Tue 5/18/21 6:09 PM

Lyles (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Paul Garcia of ProjectSpurs.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Lyles' status is still up in the air for Wednesday's game but it's likely that the forward won't receive much playing time if he is able to return as he missed almost two months with his injury. The 25-year-old has received inconsistent minutes all season so don't expect too much production in an important game for the Spurs.

Edmond Sumner

Tue 5/18/21 5:57 PM

Sumner (knee) is available for Tuesday's play-in game against the Hornets.
EDGE Analysis
The 25-year-old was considered questionable for Tuesday's contest with a bruised knee but will return from a four-game absence. Sumner averaged 10.2 points, 1.6 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 18.8 minutes in his past five appearances.

Aaron Holiday
G IND
Tue 5/18/21 5:45 PM

Holiday (toe) is available for Tuesday's play-in game against the Hornets.
EDGE Analysis
The 24-year-old missed the final four games of the regular season with a sprained toe and was considered a game-time decision Tuesday, and he'll return to the court for the play-in contest. Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) and Edmond Sumner (knee) are also available, so Holiday should have a role off the bench for the Pacers.

Malcolm Brogdon

Tue 5/18/21 5:45 PM

Brogdon (hamstring) will play Tuesday against the Hornets, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports.
EDGE Analysis
Brogdon will return to the court Tuesday after missing the Pacer's final 10 games of the regular season. Expect the guard to play in short stints of about 5-6 minutes, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. With Aaron Holiday (toe) and Edmond Sumner (knee) also available, expect the guard to receive limited playing time as he makes his return from injury.

Aaron Holiday

Tue 5/18/21 5:15 PM

Holiday (toe) will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Hornets, Scott Agness of FieldhouseFiles.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Holiday's availability will come down to the wire for Tuesday's win-or-go-home play-in game. Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) also remains questionable. If Brogdon is out and Holiday is in, the latter figures to see an uptick in playing time.

OFSBrandon Goodwin
G ATL
Tue 5/18/21 5:10 PM

Goodwin will miss the remainder of the season due to a minor respiratory condition that requires treatment, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Goodwin clearly wasn't able to make an impact for the Hawks down the stretch and it appears the team has finally been able to diagnose the reason for it. Unfortunately, it appears the issue will cost him the remainder of the 2020-21 season, leaving Lou Williams as the team's primary backup on the ball behind Trae Young.

Edmond Sumner
G/SF IND
Tue 5/18/21 5:10 PM

Sumner (knee) should be able to play Tuesday against the Hornets, J. Michael of The Indianapolis Star reports.
EDGE Analysis
Sumner was forced to miss the last four games of the regular season with a knee injury. With Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) and Aaron Holiday (toe) both still listed as game-time decisions, it's likely Sumner will receive an abundance of playing time if either Brogdon and/or Holiday can't play. T.J. McConnell will also gain additional minutes if Brogdon and Holiday sit out.
