by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:31 pm ET) Spurs coach Greg Popovich center Tiago Splitter is a game-time decision for Sunday's opening-round game against the Clippers, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Splitter is listed as questionable for the game with a calf injury. 


Pelicans' Tyreke Evans considers himself game-time decision
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2:19 pm ET) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans called himself a game-time decision for Monday's Game 2 contest against the Warriors, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

Evans was forced to leave Saturday's 106-99 loss to Golden State with a knee bruise.

Though Evans considers himself a game-time decision, Pelicans coach Monty Williams said Evans is "day to day."

Evans was injured with 5:16 remaining in the first half in Game 1. 


Clippers' DeAndre Jordan not concerned about free-throw woes
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:58 pm ET) Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has had his fair share of issues from the free-throw line. 

For the season, Jordan has only made 39.7 percent of his free-throw attempts. Only Detroit's Andre Drummond's 38.9 percent ranks worse in the NBA. As a result, teams have fouled Jordan to put him on the line late in games. 

Jordan said he's been working on his free throws and that he's not concerned about them heading into the playoffs. 

“It’s happened all season, and I feel like a lot of the games that they’ve done it we’ve won,” Jordan said, via the San Antonio Express-News. “I’m not really worried about it. When it does happen, which I know it will, I’ll just go to the line and shoot the basketball. It’s not something that I’m dreading, but I’m prepared for it. I’m ready.”

The Clippers will face the Spurs on Sunday in Game 1 of their first-round series at 10:30 p.m.


Grizzlies Tony Allen (hamstring), Mike Conley (foot) will play
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(12:31 pm ET) Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger said forward Tony Allen and guard Mike Conley will be able to play Sunday night against the Trail Blazers, according to sideline reporter Rob Fischer. 

Conley has a foot injury that caused him to miss the final four games of the regular season. Allen dealt with a hamstring injury that forced him to miss the final nine regular-season games. 

Joerger did say he's concerned about how much "rust" both Allen and Conley will have to overcome with the playoffs beginning. 


Suns on Brandon Knight's surgery: 'It was a minor procedure'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:56 am ET) Suns point guard Brandon Knight underwent arthroscopic ankle surgery Friday, but president of basketball operations Lon Babby called it "a minor procedure," the Arizona Republic reports.

"It was a minor procedure," Babby said. "There was an anterior flap (of cartilage) in his ankle that caused irritation. We expect a full recovery."

Knight suffered the injury on March 9 and missed 16 of the team's final 17 games. He averaged 17.0 points and 5.2 assists in 63 games between the Bucks and Suns last season.


Mavericks' Chandler Parsons aggravates knee injury
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9:33 am ET) Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons scored 10 points on 5 of 15 shooting in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Rockets but reaggravated his knee injury and expressed concern about the knee potentially swelling up after the game, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"I just landed and felt some pain," he said. "My leg just kind of gave out on me. I couldn’t really shake it. It didn’t feel great."

Parsons missed the final six games of the regular season with the injury but was able to practice in full Friday and said he felt fine during the first six-to-eight minutes of Saturday's game.

"I think that was partly due to adrenaline," he said. "Something happened when I landed on it and it was real painful. We have a lot of work to do here and hopefully it doesn’t swell up overnight. I’ll visit the doctors and trainers (Sunday) and hope the the best."

Despite the injury, Parsons was able to play 36 minutes in Saturday's loss. He'll have a few days to rest and recover before the Mavericks face the Rockets in Game 2 Tuesday.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1:41 am ET) Mavericks guard Devin Harris suffered a toe injury in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Rockets. He played just 10 minutes and scored two points in the contest, but hopes to return for Game 2, reports the Dallas Morning News.

"The toe is pretty sore and I aggravated it during the game," Harris said. "We will have to continue to treat it and hopefully I'll be back. It remains to be seen and there are some things we have to figure out. We’ll see how it goes."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Spurs forward Matt Bonner (calf) and center Tiago Splitter (calf) are listed as questionable for Sunday's opening round game against the Clippers Sunday, the team announced Saturday. 

Bonner missed the final two games of the season with the injury while Splitter was out for the last six. The Spurs are currently 1-point underdogs against the Clippers.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) The Trail Blazers have listed guard Arron Afflalo as doubtful for Sunday's opening round game against the Grizzlies with a shoulder injury, the team announced. 

Afflalo missed the final three games of the regular season with the injury. If he is unable to go, CJ McCollum would likely fill in. Also listed on the injury report are Alonzo Gee (foot) as questionable, McCollum (ankle), Nicolas Batum (knee) and Chris Kaman (back) as probable.

The Trail Blazers are currently 5 1/2-point underdogs against Memphis
