Andy Larsen: Gordon Hayward underwent a "minor outpatient surgical procedure" last Friday to address inflammation in his right heel. Jazz say that he'll resume full basketball activity "early this summer". A bit strange they're announcing it a full week after it happened. I mean, we saw the Jazz PR crew on Tuesday. Hayward's had two blogs published this week. No mention of a surgical procedure. Twitter @andyblarsen
Jeff Zillgitt: Cavs G Kyrie Irving is questionable (left knee tendinitis) for Game 2 vs. Hawks, per team. http://t.co/l3qpEIiqe2 Twitter @JeffZillgitt
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving skipped the morning shootaround Friday before Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final to get further evaluation on his ailing left knee. Irving was listed as questionable against after scoring only 10 points and sitting out the final 8 minutes of the Cavaliers win over the Atlanta Hawks in the series opener. USA Today Sports
Parsons will be on crutches for another two or three weeks, per Mavs.com's Bobby Karalla. If it is microfracture surgery, I'm not sure how much of an advantage the Mavericks gain from hiding it. Any free agent who meets with Dallas will ask about Parsons' health and they won't be able to hide it then, although maybe that will have bought Parsons enough time in his recovery to guarantee an early season return. That Parsons won't say what surgery it was either way makes me think the worst, but again, we just don't know at this point. mavsmoneyball.com
Hawks forward DeMarre Carroll suffered a left leg injury with 4:59 remaining in the fourth quarter of last night’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. An X-ray was negative and an MRI revealed a left knee sprain. Carroll will be listed as questionable and his status will be updated as appropriate. NBA.com
