Jason Smith (left calf) will play in Game 6 for the Wizards

Washington Wizards forward/center Jason Smith (left calf) will play against the Atlanta Hawks in Game 6 on Friday.

What It Means:

Smith was getting up some shots in pre-game and looks not to be affected by the calf contusion. With the foul trouble Markieff Morris has found himself in during the series, Smith will see plenty of minutes at the four while spelling Marcin Gortat at the center position as well on Friday. He is a risky DFS play but is in the conversation as a punt play option on Friday, if you don't trust Morris.

Our models project Smith for 5.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 14.7 minutes of action in Game 6.

Kawhi Leonard leads Spurs past Grizzlies in Game 6

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a series-clinching 103-96 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

What It Means:

Leonard was described as a robot at times by Grizzlies' coach David Fizdale and after the Spurs' Game 6 win, coach Gregg Popovich said Leonard is the best player in the NBA. Our models agree with Popovich's assessment.

Leonard is averaging 31.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.0 steals over 37.7 minutes per game this postseason. He owns a .615 effective field goal percentage in the playoffs and he led the league with a 19.5 nERD this regular season.

Tony Parker puts up a huge game as Spurs advance to second round

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker made 11-of-14 from the field for 27 points with two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday.

What It Means:

Parker hit the time machine before Game 6 and came out with a huge game, including a bucket in the game's final minute which helped seal it for the Spurs. If you take away his scoreless effort in Game 3, Parker averaged 19.6 points per game in the other five games in this series and he should continue the role as the Spurs' third option on offense against the Houston Rockets in round two.

Parker is averaging 16.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists over 27.2 minutes per game this postseason. He has a .587 effective field goal percentage over his last six games and he finished the year with a -0.6 nERD, ranking him 259th in the NBA.

Memphis eliminated despite 26 points from Mike Conley in Game 6

Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley scored 26 points during a season-ending 103-96 loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

What It Means:

Conley was a super-star for Memphis all throughout this series and he proved he has the ability to be an elite scorer even against tough defenses. He had a great year despite dealing with some injuries, but if he can stay healthy, he'll enter his 11th NBA season as a top fantasy option on draft boards in 2017-18.

Conley averaged a career-best 24.7 points per game in the playoffs to go with 7.0 assists, 3.0 assists and 1.7 steals in six postseason games in 2017. He had a .568 effective field goal percentage in the playoffs and his nERD of 11.1 ranked him 17th in the league this regular season.

Vince Carter plays 32 minutes in Grizzlies' Game 6 loss

Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Vince Carter scored 12 points in 32 minutes against the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

What It Means:

The 40 year-old Carter was not supposed to play such a huge role this season or in this series, but the injury issues with Chandler Parsons shoved the future Hall of Famer into action for Memphis. He had to defend Kawhi Leonard for most of Game 6, which makes his final performance of the season even more impressive. If he proved anything in these playoffs, it's that he has plenty left in the tank if he wants to keep playing into his 40s.

Carter finished the regular season averaging 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists over 24.6 minutes per game. He had a .508 effective field goal percentage and his 0.6 nERD ranked him 123rd in the league this season.
