Pachulia (heel) says he will be 'fine' to play in the NBA Finals given the nine-day layoff, Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reports.
With the NBA Finals starting on June 1, the big man will have plenty of time to rest and let his bruised heel recover. While the news is coming from Pachulia himself rather than the medical staff, it seems reasonable to believe his word given the timetable. He should be expected to play and start at center for the Warriors during Game 1.
Curry posted 36 points (14-24 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six assists and five rebounds across 34 minutes during a 129-115 win over the Spurs on Monday.
Curry's 36 points marked a game high as he led the team to its third straight NBA Finals appearance with the win. He has saved some of his best performances of these playoffs for close-out games, as he has scored at least 30 points in each of the team's close-out games. Curry continues to shoot the ball at a scorching rate, as he's now shot better than 50 percent from the field in eight of the last nine games.
Thompson contributed 10 points (3-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and one assist across 34 minutes during a 129-115 win over the Spurs on Monday.
After one of his best performances of these playoffs in the Game 3 win, Thompson struggled in the series-clinching victory on Monday. After an extremely strong regular season, he has strangely struggled in the playoffs, as he's shot 40 percent from the field or worse in seven of the team's 12 playoffs games. His consistency will be something to monitor during the Finals.
McCaw will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The Warriors went with JaVale McGee as a starter in place of Zaza Pachulia during Game 3, but will move to a smaller lineup featuring McCaw, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in the frontcourt. McCaw will likely see an increase in playing time after logging just 11 minutes during Game 3, which should come with a temporary boost in his fantasy value as well.
McGee will return to the bench for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
McGee was very effective in limited playing time during his Game 3 start, posting 16 points in just 13 minutes while filling in for Zaza Pachulia (heel). While Pachulia remains sidelined, the Warriors will go with a slightly smaller lineup featuring Draymond Green at center and Patrick McCaw at small forward. McGee shouldn't see a huge decrease in minutes despite the move to the bench.
