  • Spears: Malcolm Brogdon (arm) expected to play
    According to Andscape's Marc Spears, Malcolm Brogdon (right forearm strain) is expected to play in Monday's Game 7 against the Heat. 

    Advice: After playing eight minutes in Game 5, Brogdon was held out of Boston's Game 6 victory on Saturday. His expected return means that the Celtics will have an eight-man rotation for the series decider. Sam Hauser was technically the eighth man on Saturday, but he only played two minutes. Even with Brogdon available, look for starters Marcus Smart and Derrick White to play most of the minutes at the guard positions. Monday, 12:42 pm
  • Upgraded to available
    Brogdon (elbow/forearm) has been upgraded to available for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus Miami on Monday, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Brogdon has been playing through a partial tear in his right elbow that leads into his forearm since Game 1 versus Miami. Despite the injury, the 2023 NBA Sixth Man of the Year was able to play his usual role in the first two matchups, posting 16.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks in 31.5 minutes per game, but he was a non-factor for Games 3-5 before taking a seat for Game 6. There's no guarantee Brogdon plays heavy minutes in the critical Game 7, but his availability should be a positive boost to Boston's bench, which scored just 11 points during the Game 6 win.

  • Expected to play
    Brogdon (forearm) is expected to play in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals versus Miami on Monday, Marc J. Spears of reports.

    Advice: Brogdon missed Boston's Game 6 win due to a right forearm strain, but he was spotted getting shots up Monday morning during shootaround while wearing an elbow sleeve and will likely be available for the critical Game 7. The backup point guard scored in double figures in each of the first two matchups of the series, averaging 31.5 minutes per game, but he totaled just two points over his next three appearances before sitting out.

  • Malcolm Brogdon (arm) questionable for Game 7
    Malcolm Brogdon (right forearm strain) is questionable for Game 7 against the Heat on Monday. 

    Advice: Brogdon didn’t play in Game 6 and played only a few minutes in Game 5. If he can’t play in Game 7, Derrick White and Marcus Smart should fill the majority of the guard minutes, with Jaylen Brown playing a few to give them a rest. Sunday, 5:25 pm
  • Gabe Vincent (ankle) questionable for Game 7
    Gabe Vincent (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Game 7 against Boston on Monday. 

    Advice: There shouldn’t be much concern about Vincent actually missing this game. It could be their last game of the season, and he’s been one of, if not the best player on the team in this series. He’ll need to have a big night if they want to avoid being on the wrong side of history. Sunday, 3:34 pm
  • Iffy for Monday
    Brogdon (forearm) is listed as questionable for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Heat on Monday.

    Advice: Brogdon participated in the shootaround before Game 6, but he ultimately sat out the Celtics' 104-103 win. If available Monday, Brogdon could be in store for a limited role behind backcourt starters Derrick White and Marcus Smart. Through his five appearances in the series, Brogdon has shot just 33.3 percent from the field and has averaged 6.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 21.2 minutes per contest. Sunday, 2:04 pm
  • Questionable to play Monday
    Vincent (ankle) is listed as questionable for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics on Monday.

    Advice: Vincent missed Game 5 due to his left ankle sprain but was cleared for the Heat's 104-103 loss in Game 6 on Saturday, when he played 41 minutes and finished with 15 points (6-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt), four rebounds and one block. He'll presumably do everything in his power to play in a decisive Game 7, but in the event Vincent can't go or is limited in some capacity, Kyle Lowry would pick up extra run at point guard.

  • Report: Bulls unsure if Lonzo Ball will play again
    The Bulls “privately don’t think that it’s likely Lonzo Ball will ever play again,” according to a report from Dan Bernstein on the Organizations Win Championships Podcast. 

    Advice: It’s certainly a worst-case scenario outlook, but it shouldn’t be a surprising report, since it has been a year and a half since Ball has played. There have been numerous reports suggesting that the doctors don’t know what is wrong with his knee, and he had a third surgery in March. Lonzo is obviously a talented player that can make a huge fantasy impact when he’s healthy, but a report like this is grim. He could certainly make a miraculous recovery, but it may be a long time before that happens. Sunday, 12:17 pm
  • Stays hot despite loss
    Robinson had 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), one rebound and two assists across 20 minutes during Saturday's 104-103 loss to Boston in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: After hardly playing in Game 1, Robinson has averaged 14.0 points on 50 percent shooting from deep over the past five matchups. He failed to connect on a couple of wide-open chances to give Miami the lead late in the fourth quarter, but he's still been a solid offensive weapon for the Heat this series and figures to have a sizable bench role during Game 7 on Monday.
