Deron Williams    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Deron Williams (illness) is a go for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Celtics. Williams sat out shootaround, but he was never expected to miss tonight's game. He should continue to flirt with minutes in the lower-teens, which doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.

Amir Johnson    F/C  Celtics

 

 

Amir Johnson (right shoulder) will not suit up for Game 4 against the Cavs on Tuesday, according to sources of Michael Eaves of ESPN. With Johnson set to spend Game 4 on the sidelines, we could see Kelly Olynyk move into the starting five, and there should be some more playing time available for Jonas Jerebko. For now, we'll be considering Johnson questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

Chris Bosh    F/C  Heat

 

 

The Heat and Chris Bosh are reportedly moving closer to a resolution that will allow Miami to remove Bosh's salary from their salary cap for the 2017-18 season. Bosh is still guaranteed the remaining 52.1 million left on his contract, but the Heat will likely waive him soon in order to ensure that they'll go into free agency with roughly $37 million in cap space. Bosh has hinted that he still would like to play in the NBA, but that might not be something in the cards for the All-Star forward due to the blood clotting issue that forced him to spend the entire 2016-17 season on the sidelines.

Josh McRoberts    F/C  Heat

 

 

Josh McRoberts has reportedly picked up his player option worth $6 million for the 2017-18 season. This is far from surprising as there's absolutely no way McRoberts would be able to command this sort of salary on the open market. Since coming to Miami three years ago, McRoberts has only managed to suit up for a total of 81 games, and he hasn't done anything impressive since joining the Heat.

Bosh has unofficially agreed to part ways with the Heat in a deal made between him, the team, the union and the NBA, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. The Heat would receive "maximum cap relief" before the start of free agency.

Zaza Pachulia    F/C  Warriors

 

 

Zaza Pachulia (heel) said he'll be fine to play when the NBA Finals begin. Pachulia sat out Games 3 and 4 of the Dubs' Western Conference Finals matchup with the Spurs, so he'll have at least a full nine days to rest up before the Finals begin. It sounds like he'll be back in the starting five for Game 1 of the Finals, which will result in Patrick McCaw moving back to the second unit.

John Collins    F  Player

 

 

The Pacers will be bringing in John Collins for a workout on Tuesday. Collins is a 6'10" power forward with a nice post-up game, but he'll need to work on expanding his range and improving his court vision to be successful at the NBA level. He put in averages of 19.2 points, 9.8 boards and 1.6 blocks per game during his sophomore season with Wake Forest, and he could be an option for Indiana when they come on the board with the No. 18 overall pick in 2017 draft.
