Jeff McDonald: Pop says Murray is probably at “70 percent.” “I don’t think that’s good enough against Golden State.” He doesn’t want to add fighting through an injury against Steph Curry to Murray’s already difficult task of learning to be an NBA point guard.

Shams Charania: The Golden State Warriors are planning to activate Pat McCaw for Game 6 tonight against Houston, league sources tell Yahoo. McCaw is expected to be in uniform for first time since scary injury on March 31.
Anthony Slater: Patrick McCaw’s missed two months since that scary fall, had trouble walking/sleeping for about a month. Very slow recovery, sped up the past few weeks. Would be an almost impossible ask to drop him right in these West Finals and expect much. But wing depth is needed.
Bryan Kalbrosky: Sources: NBA prospect Landry Shamet (@Landry Shamet) will have a predraft workout with the Golden State Warriors tomorrow (May 27). The former Wichita State guard was 44.2 percent from three-point range last year.
In terms of how the NBA Draft is trending, Kentucky’s Kiddie Cat program is not an outlier. UK’s fuzzy-cheeked players fit right in. UK Coach John Calipari suggested as much at the NBA Combine. When asked about his players’ draft status, he returned again and again to their relative youth. Patience and time will be required to properly assess his players’ value as draft picks, he said. More than ever, that’s true not just for UK players, but for many draft prospects. “This league has become a futures league,” Calipari said. “You’re not drafting for what they look like right now. . . . So you look at them and watch them, and this kid got the better of him. But you’re watching and you say, ‘That’s only because he’s three years older. Where’s this kid going to be in three years?’ That’s the challenge of what all these (NBA scouts) have to do.”
Likewise, NBA evaluators must project ahead when assessing, say, Kevin Knox, who turns 19 on Aug. 11. Calipari suggested Knox was young, even by the standards of a speculative draft pick. “There are some guys who would be 18 and have the beard,” Calipari told reporters. “And then there’s some guys who reach for the ball and you go, ‘You don’t have hair under your arms.’ OK? He’s one of those. . . . You look at some of these guys and they tell you he’s 19, and you go, ‘Get the hell out of here. I want to see his birth (certificate). That kid’s got two kids.’ Not this one. This one’s a normal kid. Someone’s going to take him and everybody’s going to say, ‘How did people pass on him?’”
