    Kawhi Leonard May 20 5:50am ET

    Toronto Raptors shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard connected on 11-for-25 shooting from the floor and 12 of 13 at the line to score a game-high 36 points in the six-point double-overtime win over the Bucks. Leonard provided a full line with nine boards and five assists while picking up two steals and a block in 52 minutes on Sunday. Leonard once again played the role of hero as he made some big baskets down the stretch, but looked to be favoring his right leg at points in the second half and overtime after looking like he landed awkwardly after a dunk. We can assume he will be okay but stay tuned for any updates in regards to the Raptors' superstar.

    Pascal Siakam May 20 5:50am ET

    Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam bounced back in Game 3 when he provided 25 points and played a heavy 51 minutes in the double-overtime thriller on Sunday. Siakam was much more aggressive on offense as he nailed nine of 18 shots with two makes from three and added 11 rebounds with three steals for his big line. He looked to finally figure out the Bucks defense and also played spectacular defense on Giannis Antetokounmpo helping hold the superstar to just 12 points. The question is now, can Siakam carry over this performance into the Game 4 on Tuesday?

    Marc Gasol May 20 5:40am ET

    Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasol came out firing on Sunday when he scored eight of his 16 points in the game's first six minutes in the six-point double-overtime victory over the Bucks. Gasol did it all as he added 12 rebounds with seven assists and made his presence felt on the defensive end with five blocks. Serge Ibaka played just 14 minutes and the thought of bringing Gasol off the bench for Game 3 is purely an afterthought now after this strong game. We can hope his confidence carries over to Game 4 on Tuesday making him still the better play over Brook Lopez.

    Norman Powell May 20 5:40am ET

    Toronto Raptors shooting guard Norman Powell provided a huge lift in the Game 3 double-overtime win over the Bucks on Sunday in Toronto. Powell scored 10 of his 19 points in the first quarter and added four rebounds with three assists and a steal before fouling out. He stepped up with many of the Raptors' supporting cast having an off night and we can assume his confidence will stay sky high in Game 4 making him a solid look in DFS while he is hot.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo May 20 5:10am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo struggled on the offensive end as he tallied just 12 points on 5-for-16 shooting and committed eight turnovers in the loss the Raptors on Sunday. Antetokounmpo did still manage to leave his footprint on the box score as he grabbed 23 rebounds with seven assists and swatted four shots and was a starter's best plus-3 before fouling out in the second overtime with just over four minutes remaining. We know the Greek Freak will come out more aggressive in Game 4 with the Bucks expected to make some adjustments for their superstar on the offensive end to get him better looks.

    Khris Middleton May 20 5:00am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks shooting guard/small forward Khris Middleton scored just nine points on a dismal 3-for-16 shooting in the double-overtime loss to the Raptors on Sunday. Middleton made just 1-for-6 from three and added nine boards with three assists and a steal in his 44 minutes. Middleton is averaging just 10.7 points across the series' first three games, but his value has been on the defensive end where he is somewhat containing Kawhi Leonard. Middleton is due for a big game in this series and we may just see it in the crucial Game 4 in Toronto on Tuesday.

    Brook Lopez May 20 5:00am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez returned to form on Sunday when he nailed five of 10 shots to score 16 points, but it was not enough in the six-point loss to the Raptors on Sunday. Lopez did not add any blocks but grabbed six rebounds and added two steals as he kept the defense honest making three of seven from three across 40 minutes. Lopez bounced back after a disappointing Game 2 when he scored just six points on 1-for-7 shooting, but was a team-worst minus-16 in this one as he had a hard time keeping up with Marc Gasol who won this battle this time.

    Eric Bledsoe May 20 4:50am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe made just three of 16 shot attempts en route to just 11 points in the 118-112 double-overtime Game 3 loss at the hands of the Raptors on Sunday. Bledsoe was a non-factor much of the night, but still managed to add five assists with four rebounds and three steals, yet turned the ball over five times across 34 minutes. The Bucks went with a George Hill and Malcolm Brogdon backcourt in much of the overtime periods as Bledsoe's rough series' production continued. Bledsoe has made just nine of 38 shots thus far this series and is tough to rely on in DFS at the moment.

    Andre Iguodala May 19 1:00pm ET

    Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (calf) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Sunday. He played just 18 minutes during Game 3 on Saturday due to left calf tightness. This seems to be a lingering issue with Iggy and this could be troublesome for the Warriors. Kevin Durant (calf) is out and Iggy looks like he could be missing some time as well. The Warriors are running out of depth quickly, but we'll wait and see what the MRI results are before jumping to conclusions.

    Damian Lillard May 19 1:00pm ET

    Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard (ribs) is apparently playing through an injury that he suffered in Game 2 versus the Golden State Warriors. Lillard reportedly suffered separated ribs in the second game of this series, but has no plans to sit out. Lillard has been slumping, and the Blazers need him to step it up to avoid being swept by the Warriors.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo May 18 5:30am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks guard/forward Giannis Antetokounmpo provided another monster line in the easy 22-point Game 2 win over the Raptors. Antetokounmpo scored 30 points and added 17 rebounds with five assists and a steal with two blocks in 35 minutes of action. The Bucks offense was on point tonight with six players scoring in double digits, and this led to the Greek Freak needing to play just 35 minutes, which will be a positive for Game 3 on Sunday. He is playing at a superstar level at the moment and the Raptors look to have zero answers for him, making him someone that needs to be on everyone's lineups for Game 3.

    Brook Lopez May 18 5:30am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez cooled off in Game 2 on Friday when he scored just six points with four rebounds in the 22-point win. Marc Gasol struggled on the offensive end in this one, but he made sure that Lopez did not have come close to his heroic Game 1 playoff career-high 29 points. Lopez, overall, has been struggling throughout this postseason and did score just 27 points in the entire series with the Celtics. We can only assume Gasol will come out more confident in Game 3 after back-to-back duds, making him the possible better play in the middle for that one.

    Nikola Mirotic May 18 5:30am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks forward Nikola Mirotic scored 11 of his 15 points in the opening period to help secure the 22-point Game 2 win over the Toronto Raptors. Mirotic nailed half of his 10 shots from the floor and added six rebounds across 23 minutes of action. Mirotic once again started with Malcolm Brogdon still coming off the bench and Mirotic is averaging 14.0 points and 6.0 rebounds across the series first two games. Mirotic has been pretty consistent this postseason and we can assume the Bucks will stick with him in the starting unit as it has proved successful in the win column for Milwaukee this postseason.

    Ersan Ilyasova May 18 5:30am ET

    Milwaukee Bucks power forward Ersan Ilyasova came up big off the bench in Game 2 in the win over the Raptors on Friday. Ilyasova scored 17 points on 7-for-11 shooting and added three boards with two assists and two steals in just 21 minutes of action. Ilyasova led the bench squad who was the difference in this lopsided battle. Ilyasova has scored in double digits just three times this postseason and has never done so in back-to-back games, so keep this in mind for Game 3 when the series heads to Toronto on Sunday.

    Kawhi Leonard May 18 5:20am ET

    Toronto Raptors Shooting guard/small forward Kawhi Leonard was once again the lone bright spot for his struggling club in the 22-point loss to the Bucks. Leonard led his squad with 31 points on 10-for-18 shooting and added eight boards with two assists and a block across 38 minutes. The rest of the Raptors starting unit provided a dismal 33 points combined and once again, Leonard could not do it all on his own. He is averaging 31.0 points and 8.5 rebounds through the series first two games and is definitely a player you want to build your roster around in the crucial Game 3 for his club.

    Kyle Lowry May 18 5:20am ET

    Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry scored 15 points and managed to connect on just 4-for-13 shooting in the 125-103 Game 2 loss to the Bucks in Milwaukee on Friday. Lowry got his looks from three but managed to make just two of nine attempts after making seven of nine in Game 1. Lowry has struggled with consistency once again this postseason and he had a hard time tonight against the length from the Bucks. Lowry is very hard to play right now in DFS as you do not know which Lowry will show up, although, you would need to assume that Lowry will come out aggressive in Game 3 with the series pretty much on the line.

    Pascal Siakam May 18 5:20am ET

    Toronto Raptors forward Pascal Siakam had a game to forget on Friday when he managed to score just eight points while battling foul trouble in the 22-point loss to the Bucks in Game 2. Siakam connected on 4-for-9 shooting and added two assists and a single rebound with a steal in this one. Siakam has made just 10 of 29 field goal attempts in the series first two games and with the Bucks length up front, Siakam has had some serious issues with attacking the rim. Game 3 is pivotal for the Raptors and we can only assume Siakam will come out firing with the homecourt fans on his side.

    Marc Gasol May 18 5:20am ET

    Toronto Raptors center Marc Gasols shooting struggles continued in Fridays 125-103 loss to the Bucks in Game 2. Gasol connected on just 1-for-9 shooting to score just two points and has now shot just 3-for-21 in the series first two games. Gasol did not add much else either as he had five rebounds with an assist and a block across 19 minutes of action. Gasol took the blame after the game for the Raptors slow start which led them to be fighting from the behind for the entirety of the game. Serge Ibaka did show some promise off the bench as he scored eight points with 10 rebounds in 29 minutes of action.

    Tyreke Evans May 17 7:20pm ET

    Indiana Pacers guard/forward Tyreke Evans has been disqualified from the NBA due to violation of the league's substance abuse policy. Evans won't be allowed to play in the NBA for two years. However, after those two years, he's eligible to seek reinstatement. Evans is currently 31 years old and was going to be a free agent this summer.

    Stephen Curry May 17 4:40am ET

    Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry had the hot hand once again on Thursday as he scored 37 points in the 114-111 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 2. Curry connected on 11 of 22 shooting from the floor but made just four of 14 from three while adding eight rebounds and he had eight assists but did commit six turnovers on the night. The Dubs were down 15 points at the half, but a strong third quarter charge led by Curry and Klay Thompson got them back in this one. He is in must play mode in DFS with Kevin Durant (calf) expected to miss at least another three games after Curry has recorded 30-plus points for the third straight game.
