Marcus Smart (thumb) questionable for Celtics in Game 5

Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart (thumb) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Milwaukee Bucks.

What It Means:

Smart previously said the plan was for him to return in Game 6, so the questionable label for Tuesday's contest may be a little optimistic. Whenever he gets back out there, it's going to heavily cut into Shane Larkin's workload.

Smart averaged 24.4 FanDuel points with 10.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.3 steals in 29.9 minutes per game during the regular season.

George Hill (back) listed as questionable for Game 5 in Cleveland

Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill (back spasms) is being listed as questionable in the game notes for Game 5 against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.

What It Means:

LeBron James and the Cavs were able to win Game 4 to tie the series and take back home court advantage without Hill on Sunday. If Hill is forced to miss again, Jose Calderon will continue playing more, and Jordan Clarkson could see a few more minutes.

If Hill is able to play in Game 5, our models project him for 19.2 FanDuel points at a cost of $3,800.

Josh Richardson (shoulder) is questionable for Heat in Game 5

Miami Heat guard/forward Josh Richardson (shoulder sprain) is listed as questionable for Game 5 against the Philadelphia 76ers.

What It Means:

Richardson said after Game 4 that he expected he'd be able to play in Game 5, but for now that looks up in the air. If Richardson is forced to miss Game 5, Dwyane Wade would likely take on a bigger role, while Tyler Johnson, Justise Winslow, and Wayne Ellington could see more minutes.

If he is able to play, our early models for Tuesday project Richardson for 25.5 FanDuel points at a cost of $5,800.

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) listed as doubtful for Raptors in Game 5

Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is listed as doubtful to play in Game 5 Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.

What It Means:

VanVleet has barely played in this series thanks to a shoulder injury, and it's looking like he'll sit out again in Game 5. Delon Wright and Kyle Lowry will continue to soak up his minutes in a pivotal game on Wednesday.

VanVleet is averaging 18.5 FanDuel points per game this season.

Lance Stephenson scores 11 points with 6 assists for Pacers in Game 4 loss

Indiana Pacers guard/forward Lance Stephenson scored 11 points (5-of-11 field goals, 1-of-4 3-pointers) with 2 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, and 1 turnover in 23.2 minutes of Sunday's 104-100 Game 4 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

What It Means:

The swipe and swat are each Stephenson's first of the 2018 playoffs and he finished with more assists in Game 4 than in the first three games of the series combined (4). Indiana returns to Cleveland for Game 5 on Wednesday in what is now a best-of-three series.

Lance scored 27.4 FanDuel points on Sunday, raising his average to 18.3 FanDuel points per game this postseason.
