Shane Larkin (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Cavs.

While it's unlikely that he'll play on Wednesday, Brad Stevens did say there's a chance he could return at some point during the Eastern Conference Finals. Terry Rozier, Marcus Smart and Semi Ojeleye will continue to split Larkin's minutes in his absence.

Andre Iguodala (bruised leg) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's Game 4 vs. Houston.

An X-ray and MRI confirmed that Iguodala is not dealing with any structural damage, so his ability to play will likely be a matter of pain tolerance. He has received treatment on his leg several times over the past 24 hours, and he said if he does play he'll likely be rocking a pad on his left leg. He's headed for a game-time call, but if he does sit this one out, Kevon Looney would likely replace him in the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Nick Young.

Donovan Mitchell (foot) was unanimously selected to the All-Rookie First Team.

Ben Simmons, Jayson Tatum, Kyle Kuzma and Lauri Markkanen were also selected to the All-Rookie First Team, while Lonzo Ball, Dennis Smith Jr., Bogdan Bogdanovic, Josh Jackson and John Collins received All-Rookie Second Team honors. Mitchell is reportedly still sporting a walking boot after suffering a foot injury during the fourth quarter of Utah's Game 5 loss to Houston, but the injury is not considered serious and he's fully expected to be 100% by the time training camp rolls along.

Shane Battier is expected to get a second interview with the Pistons for their front office position.

Battier is currently working in Miami as the Heat's director of basketball development and analytics. Miami granted Battier permission to meet with Detroit earlier this month. The Pistons were impressed by Battier in their first interview, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Coach Alvin Gentry said "there's not one single person" in the Pelicans organization that doesn't want to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins.

Cousins is reportedly seeking a max contract despite his recent Achilles tear. The Pels played well without Cousins last season, but losing a player with his combination of size and skill via free agency would be tough for New Orleans to swallow. "The bottom line is that obviously we'd like to have him back on our team," Gentry said on Monday. "Anyone that thinks you're better having a guy that averaged [25 PPG, 13 RPG, 5 APG] not on your team is really kind of not in tune to what it takes to win in this league."

Donte DiVincenzo said he expects to remain in the 2018 NBA draft.

DiVincenzo, like all other underclassmen on the fence, has until May 30th before deciding whether to withdraw his name from the draft pool. Last week, he was reportedly looking for a first-round guarantee. After excelling in scrimmages at the combine in Chicago and testing off the charts, he's likely received the guarantee he was looking for. He'll likely land somewhere in the 20's.

The Timberwolves have "taken some calls" on Karl-Anthony Towns, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

Earlier this week on his podcast, ESPN's Zach Lowe said that Towns and the Wolves were "not in a good place." Windhorst reports that he doesn't think the Wolves are looking to trade KAT, but "teams are definitely sniffing around." It seems extremely unlikely that Minnesota would seriously consider moving Towns, but stranger things have happened. We will certainly keep an eye on this situation over the summer.

New Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer said he plans to push Giannis Antetokounmpo and that Antetokounmpo is "going to get a lot better."

Antetokounmpo was unstoppable at times last season. He finished the season averaging 26.9 points, 10.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks. Incredibly, Giannis is still just 23 years old. Coach Budenholzer wants the Greek Freak to take his game to the next level. "He's a smart player," Budenholzer said. "I think together, he and I will probably push each other. But I look forward to pushing him. He believes it, I believe it. He's going to get a lot better."
