OUTCaris LeVert G/SF IND
Mon 5/17/21 5:38 PM
LeVert (migraine) is absent from the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game versus Charlotte.
EDGE AnalysisThe 26-year-old was removed from Sunday's finale due to a migraine, but it won't affect his availability for Tuesday's play-in matchup. LeVert should receive another start at the point if Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) remains sidelined.
Domantas Sabonis PF/C IND
Mon 5/17/21 5:36 PM
Sabonis is questionable for Tuesday's play-in game against the Hornets with a bruised left quadriceps.
EDGE AnalysisThe 25-year-old was questionable for Sunday's season finale with a knee injury and ended up putting up 25 points (12-18 FG, 1-2 3Pt), 16 rebounds, five assists and three steals in 39 minutes, but he apparently picked up the quadriceps injury. It's difficult to imagine Sabonis not making an attempt to play Tuesday with Indiana's season on the line.
Malcolm Brogdon G IND
Mon 5/17/21 5:22 PM
Brogdon (hamstring) is questionable and a game-time decision for Tuesday's play-in game against the Hornets.
EDGE AnalysisThe 28-year-old has been sidelined since April 29 with an injured right hamstring, but he could be available Tuesday with Indiana's season on the line. Brogdon will need to gain clearance during a pre-game workout to take the court versus Charlotte.
Tristan Thompson C BOS
Mon 5/17/21 5:19 PM
Thompson (chest) is absent from the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game against the Wizards.
EDGE AnalysisThe 30-year-old missed the final two games of the regular season but is ready to go for the play-in contest. Thompson has started in four of his last five appearances and averaged 4.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 blocks in 27.6 minutes during that stretch.
Evan Fournier SG/SF BOS
Mon 5/17/21 5:15 PM
Fournier (knee) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game against the Wizards.
EDGE AnalysisBoston rested most of its rotation for the final game of the season Sunday, and all those players will be on the court for Tuesday's contest. Fournier finished the season strong and averaged 20.0 points, 5.2 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 33.0 minutes over his last five games.
Marcus Smart G/SF BOS
Mon 5/17/21 5:11 PM
Smart (calf) is absent from the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game against the Wizards.
EDGE AnalysisSmart sat out the last three games of the season but will unsurprisingly be available for the play-in contest. The 27-year-old averaged 8.8 points, 6.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 32.6 minutes over his past five games.
Jayson Tatum SG/F BOS
Mon 5/17/21 5:08 PM
Tatum (ankle) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game versus Washington.
EDGE AnalysisThe 23-year-old sat out the final game of the regular season with Boston's play-in spot solidified, and he'll be good to go for Tuesday's matchup. Tatum averaged 25.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks over 35.4 minutes in his past five games.
Elijah Bryant SG MIL
Mon 5/17/21 5:06 PM
Bryant played 32 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 118-112 loss to the Bulls, finishing with 16 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one block.
EDGE AnalysisThe Bucks were already locked in as the Eastern Conference's No. 3 seed prior to tipoff, prompting head coach Mike Budenholzer to hold out several key contributors ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale. That allowed the Bucks to get a longer look at Bryant, who was making his NBA debut after Milwaukee signed him to a two-year deal earlier this month. The 26-year-old made a strong first impression Sunday, but it likely won't be enough for him to be featured in Budenholzer's rotation during the Bucks' first-round playoff series with the Heat.
Kemba Walker PG BOS
Mon 5/17/21 5:04 PM
Walker (neck) isn't listed on the injury report for Tuesday's play-in game against the Wizards.
EDGE AnalysisThe 31-year-old sat out the final three games of the regular season with Boston's play-in positioning solidified, so it's not surprise he'll be available for Tuesday's contest. Walker averaged 29.8 points, 4.3 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 35.3 minutes over his last four appearances of the season.
Max Strus SG/SF MIA
Mon 5/17/21 4:58 PM
Strus tallied 20 points (7-16 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes Sunday in the Heat's 120-107 win over the Pistons.
EDGE AnalysisWith little at stake for the playoff-bound Heat in the regular-season finale, head coach Erik Spoelstra held out or limited several key players, allowing deep reserves like Strus the opportunity to pick up extended run. Strus took advantage of the extra playing time to deliver one of the best outings of his young career, falling just one point shy of matching his highest total of the season. He'll likely fall out of the rotation during the Heat's upcoming first-round series with the Bucks.
