• Tyrese Haliburton (hamstring) out for Game 4 Mon.
    Tyrese Haliburton (left hamstring soreness) will not play in Monday’s game against the Celtics.

    Advice: Despite their season being on the line, the Pacers will not roll the dice with the health of their cornerstone point guard. Head coach Rick Carlisle announced during his pregame availability that the All-Star point guard will not play in Game 4. Ben Sheppard started Game 3 but failed to score, so DFS players can avoid slotting him into their lineups. Andrew Nembhard and T.J. McConnell will be much better choices. Rotoworld Today, 3:29 pm
  • Ready to go for Game 4
    Holiday (illness) has been cleared to play in Monday's Game 4 against the Pacers, Jay King of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Holiday made it through morning shootaround without issue and has now been given the green light to take the court Monday evening. He didn't face any type of restriction in Game 3 (38 minutes) and should be a full go as the Celtics aim for a series sweep. Rotowire.com Today, 3:19 pm
  • Officially out
    Haliburton (hamstring) won't play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Boston on Monday, Joe Vardon of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Haliburton appeared to be trending in the wrong direction leading up to tipoff, and he's since been downgraded to out. T.J. McConnell filled in admirably in Game 3, so he figures to be leaned on heavily Monday along with Ben Sheppard and Andrew Nembhard. Rotowire.com Today, 3:05 pm
  • Unlikely to play in Game 4
    Haliburton (hamstring) is unlikely to play in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Celtics on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Haliburton officially remains questionable for Monday's matchup, but Wojnarowski reports that the guard is trending in the wrong direction ahead of tipoff. Since the Pacers are trying to avoid elimination Monday, the medical staff will likely continue to monitor Haliburton's status before officially determining his availability, but Ben Sheppard, T.J. McConnell and Andrew Nembhard could see increased roles once again if Haliburton remains out. Rotowire.com Today, 2:07 pm
  • Luka Doncic (ankle, knee) questionable for Game 4
    Luka Doncic (left ankle soreness, right knee sprain) is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Doncic is back on the injury report, and his knee gave him more trouble ahead of Sunday’s Game 3. The Mavericks star still played 41 minutes, combining with Kyrie Irving to lead the Mavericks on a 13-3 run to end the game. Look for Doncic to take on a similar workload as Dallas attempts to clinch its first trip to the NBA Finals since 2011. Rotoworld Today, 1:41 pm
  • Questionable for Game 4
    Doncic (knee/ankle) is questionable for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Timberwolves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Doncic continues to deal with a right knee sprain and left ankle soreness, but he's suited up in recent matchups and has averaged 32.7 points, 8.7 assists, 7.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals in 41.0 minutes per game to begin the series. Although the Mavericks hold a 3-0 lead in the series, it wouldn't be surprising to see Doncic available once again Tuesday. Rotowire.com Today, 1:34 pm
  • Participates in shootaround
    Holiday (illness) participated in the Celtics' morning shootaround ahead of Monday's Game 4 against the Pacers, Dan Roche of WBZ-TV reports.

    Advice: Holiday is questionable for Monday's matchup due to an illness, but his participation in shootaround is encouraging. He was considered a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 3 before tallying 14 points, nine rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 38 minutes. If he's available Monday, it seems likely that he'll be able to handle a full workload as the Celtics attempt to close out the series. Rotowire.com Today, 8:00 am
  • Surpasses 30-point mark again
    Doncic recorded 33 points (10-20 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 8-10 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, one block and five steals over 41 minutes during Sunday's 116-107 victory over the Timberwolves in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: Another game, another instance where Doncic shone the brightest when the team needed him the most. The Timberwolves attempted a comeback in the second half, and it looked as if the momentum was going to shift their way in the fourth quarter. Still, Doncic was sensational to carry Dallas to a third straight win and put the team just 48 minutes away from a berth in the NBA Finals. Doncic has recorded four triple-doubles and two double-doubles across his last eight playoff appearances. Rotowire.com Today, 7:57 am
  • Thrives in fourth quarter Sunday
    Irving logged 33 points (12-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one steal across 42 minutes during Sunday's 116-107 victory over the Timberwolves in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: There's a reason why people around the NBA call Irving "Mr. Fourth Quarter," and the star floor general has lived up to that nickname in Dallas' last two playoff wins. He scored 14 points in the final frame in Game 2 of the series, and he added 13 points while going 4-for-5 from the field in the final 12 minutes of Sunday's contest. Luka Doncic continues to lead the Mavericks offensively, but Irving is thriving when the team needs him the most and has been an outstanding second option on offense so far in these playoffs.
