“Today was the first day with the new splint on to actually get out here and do something. So the thumb felt well,” said Smart, who underwent surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament on March 16. “We’re on track for [a return in the] next three weeks, possibly Game 7 of the first round, [but] definitely second round.

Adrian Wojnarowski: San Antonio Spurs assistant coaches Ettore Messina and Ime Udoka interviewed with the Toronto Raptors for the franchise’s head coaching job on Thursday and Friday, respectively, league sources told ESPN.
According to Dean Blevins of New 9 in Oklahoma City, he was told that George’s agent is telling people within the NBA that his client intends to re-sign with the Thunder this summer. Allegedly, apparently, Paul George plans to stay with the Thunder. I know. It’s not what people believe. But in separate conversations, I’m told P.G.’s agent has told people associated with the NBA that P.G. believes the injury loss of Andre Roberson was huge and he’s staying. Disclaimer, though: Believing everything that agents allegedly say can be dangerous to your health.
