Big-man notes re: the Mavericks. They will get some help back tonight as Marquese Chriss is available for the first time since Feb. 10. Allows Maxi Kleber to play some PF instead of strictly C, coach Jason Kidd said. BTW, Mavericks are 21-4 when Dwight Powell scores 10 or more. – 6:29 PM

Missing Anthony and Ellington against the Raptors in particular hurts, per Vogel: “This is a pack-it-in-the-paint team” that dares you to beat them over the top. – 6:13 PM

“He’s one of the best players in the league in my opinion … “ — Lakers head coach Frank Vogel on Pascal Siakam. – 6:05 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Vogel said it’s nothing new with LeBron and the knee; LeBron wants to test it out on the court before a decision is made about his availability for Toronto. – 6:04 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Nick Nurse says he thinks Pascal Siakam might have two or three more three-point attempts in him a night – 5:59 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Nick Nurse says Pascal Siakam is “probably” playing the best basketball of his career – 5:56 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Nick Nurse said the game plan for LeBron is always very “lengthy” because of how many things he’s doing on offense. He first focused on the transition game:
“He’s got the freight train game going … you gotta be a man to stand in there and slow him down.” – 5:56 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Malachi Flynn had a small tear in his hamstring but recent checkup showed that it’s almost healed. Nick Nurse says most of the pain has subsided and thinks he could be back in about a week. – 5:54 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
OG Anunoby will be out for at least another week, when they will take more images. Malachi Flynn has a small tear in his hamstring (that is what a strain is) but it’s healing and he is likely a little behind OG. – 5:50 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
Anunoby will remain out for another week or so. Flynn (hamstring) will likely be out another week also, maybe longer, says Nick Nurse. – 5:50 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Anunoby will miss at least another week. Fractured finger isn’t fully healed. He’s been doing a bit more on-court work but plan is to re-evaluate again next week. – 5:50 PM

Mike Trudell @LakersReporter
Nick Nurse said OG Anunoby will be out for at least another week due to his injured finger, and thus, won’t play in either game against the Lakers. – 5:49 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Malachi Flynn had a “good” and “improving” check up, Nick says. About a week, maybe longer for him. – 5:49 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Og Anunoby will get his finger checked again in about a week, Nick says. He’ll be out for a week. – 5:48 PM

Asked Doc, who has said there is a rest plan in place for Harden and Embiid, if both of them could get a game off during this stretch of three games in four nights at home (Dallas tonight, Toronto Sunday, Miami Monday). He admitted it was possible, but wouldn’t say either way. – 5:21 PM

Malone is one of four players in NBA history to reach career totals of 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 5,000 assists. The others are Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kevin Garnett, and LeBron James. pic.twitter.com/pw0YdJu2A53:31 PM

Ohio State advances comfortably with a win over Loyola Chicago.
Chris Holtmann has gone to the NCAA tourney every year in Columbus. Buckeyes fans still need to remember where program was when Thad Matta left.
Ohio State likely gets ‘Nova next with Sweet 16 berth on line. – 2:25 PM

Salman Ali @SalmanAliNBA
Russell Westbrook is modern-day Allen Iverson in every way man.
The polarizing style of play. The historically controversial MVP award. The cult following. The failure to adapt/evolve. The unfortunate crash-and-burn end of career.
All of it. – 2:16 PM
