More on Tony Snell Injury

Sarah K. Spencer: Tony Snell (inflammation, cuboid bone, right foot) says he feels ready to play, but says it's up to the training staff. Snell is listed as probable for tonight, but as Lloyd Pierce said, won't necessarily play just because he's available. Has to be fully ready first.
Chris Kirschner: For tomorrow’s game: Tony Snell is questionable for the first time this season. Rondo, Okongwu, Gallinari and Dunn are out.
Sarah K. Spencer: Per the Hawks, Kris Dunn has cartilage disruption in his right knee and can do modified workouts. Okongwu still has inflammation in his sesamoid bone; he's limited to shooting/conditioning. Snell has inflammation in his right cuboid bone; he's limited to shooting/conditioning.
Rod Beard: Good news for #Pistons: Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose are not listed AT ALL on the injury report for Friday at #Hornets. Tony Snell (left hip flexor strain) is listed as probable. Reggie Jackson and Khyri Thomas are OUT and Sekou Doumbouya and Jordan Bone are with @grdrive.
Matt Velazquez: Bud says Tony Snell’s return is more likely to be some time toward the middle of the series, not Game 1 or 2. Slow rollout of the series (games Sunday and Wednesday) helps, though.
Matt Velazquez: Asked Bud if he expects to be without Tony Snell (left ankle sprain) for an extended period of time. He asked how I define extended period. Followed up with, “Will he be back for the playoffs?” The answer to that was “Yes.”
Matt Velazquez: Tony Snell (right thigh contusion) listed as OUT on the Bucks injury report. Jabari Parker is not listed on the injury report. Will inquire about both these players during pregame in less than an hour.
Matt Velazquez: Jason Kidd says Dellavedova, Snell and Terry will play tonight vs the Cavs. Delly will start. Minutes will be restricted for all 3 players with Delly being the most restricted.
Matt Velazquez: Jason Kidd says Matthew Dellavedova and Tony Snell remain out. Bledsoe, Payton II, Middleton, Giannis and Henson to start. Mentioned that this lineup keeps bench guys in their usual roles.
Matt Velazquez: Gary Payton II will start for the Bucks. Tony Snell OUT with left patellar tendinitis.
Nick Friedell: Fred Hoiberg says Tony Snell will be out at least a week with a sprained ankle. Also notes that some veterans may not play in all three of next preseason games. Wade already said he wouldn't play in all three -- sounds like Milwaukee game is likely candidate.

Raptors bringing back Khem Birch?

Birch certainly gives the impression that he would love to be back with Toronto and it’s hard to imagine the Raptors wouldn’t have a role for him. But he’ll be 29 next season, so the contract will have to be right also. He’s coming off a two-year deal that paid him $6 million and would doubtless like some security on his next deal. “I think [on-court] fit and financial is probably what’s tied right now,” said Birch. “I’ve seen a lot of guys who actually go for financial but they get flushed out after their contracts [are over]. So I think fit is very important because I don’t want to just be the kind of guy who gets money and gets flushed out. I actually want to have a career and play a big part on a championship-level team or just win. That’s my goal.”

Marcus Morris apologized to Luka Doncic

With a first-round rematch between their teams set, Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic said there are no hard feelings remaining from the heated rivalry that he developed with LA Clippers forward Marcus Morris Sr. during last season’s playoff series. According to Doncic, Morris apologized to him during a game earlier this season about stepping on the back of Doncic’s left ankle in Game 5, a controversial play that the Mavs considered dirty with their star playing on a sprained ankle.
