Vogel said the coaching staff thought Austin Reaves “had really worn down with the heavy minutes”, many of his shots falling short of late, and thought he benefitted from the 2-game absence.

Reaves had 18 points, 6 assists, 4 boards and 1 steal at Phoenix upon returning. – 8:39 PM Golden State Warriors @warriors

Steve Kerr revealed his plan to rest players in their upcoming back-to-back to finish the season.

“We could split guys up. We haven’t decided what we’re going to do, but we won’t play Klay, Otto, and Andre in the back-to-back, but we could split them up. We haven’t decided yet.” – 8:34 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Vogel said the Lakers may use the roster spot opened by Trevor Ariza’s being waived to look at a G League player. – 8:34 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

Frank Vogel that the Lakers aren’t sure what they’re going to do with their open roster spot yet. He said one option will be calling up a player from the G League and giving them an opportunity. – 8:34 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Frank Vogel said LeBron’s ankle is still not healed, and Davis is dealing with the plantar fascia injury that had him hobbled the last few games. LAL are on a B2B tomorrow for their final home game: “We’ll see, we haven’t ruled that out. We’re going to see how they are feeling.” – 8:33 PM Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA

Frank Vogel says LeBron, AD and Westbrook haven’t been ruled out for tomorrow’s game. Says they realize it’s the last home game and fan appreciation day. – 8:32 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Frank Vogel says Anthony Davis has been dealing with plantar fasciitis in his foot; Russ’ shoulder injury has been bothering him, and Melo has been dealing with a lingering stomach bug.

None of them have been ruled out for the season. – 8:32 PM Kamenetzky Brothers @KamBrothers

I will be extremely disappointed if, even with LeBron/AD/Russ/Melo out and the Lakers out of the play-in, Frank Vogel declines to treat his starting lineup like a government secret that can’t be revealed until the last moment possible. AK – 8:32 PM Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin

Frank Vogel said LeBron James wouldn’t be playing tonight even if the Lakers hadn’t been eliminated because his ankle is still bothering him. – 8:32 PM Ryan Ward @RyanWardLA

Frank Vogel says LeBron’s ankle is still not ready. – 8:31 PM Jovan Buha @jovanbuha

Carmelo Anthony (non-COVID illness) joins LeBron, AD and Russ as being out tonight in Golden State. – 8:30 PM Kyle Goon @kylegoon

Carmelo Anthony is also out tonight with a non-COVID-related illness. – 8:29 PM Mike Trudell @LakersReporter

Carmelo Anthony (non-COVID illness) is out tonight, joining LeBron, AD and Westbrook. – 8:28 PM Vivek Jacob @vivekmjacob

Precious knocks down his third 3-pointer of the game, Raps are 6-1 so far when he makes at least three. Only loss was Lakers in OT. – 8:28 PM Dave McMenamin @mcten

The Lakers say that Carmelo Anthony is also out tonight with a non-COVID illness. – 8:28 PM Melissa Rohlin @melissarohlin

Considering the Lakers missed the playoffs, Steve Kerr was asked how the Warriors turned things around after missing the playoffs two seasons in a row. He pointed to their strong finish last season, adding you have to have hope to turn things around, wherever it may come from. – 8:24 PM CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22

Steve Kerr says the Warriors are “pretty close” to identifying the playoff rotation. – 8:24 PM Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater

Klay Thompson, Otto Porter Jr. and Andre Iguodala won’t play both sides of this weekend’s Spurs, Pelicans back to back. Steve Kerr said he hasn’t decided which side which player will rest. May split them up. – 8:22 PM Mark Haynes @markhaynesnba

Jordan Poole, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, and Kevon Looney are the starters tonight against the Lakers. – 8:18 PM CJ Holmes @CjHolmes22

If Wall isn’t traded, “his representation at Klutch Sports is expected to work with the Rockets on a buyout agreement,” per @Michael Scotto. basketballnews.com/stories/if-roc… – 8:07 PM Kurt Helin @basketballtalk

SVG (on the broadcast) and Tatum (on Draymond’s show) have both called Rob Williams the Celtics’ best defender in the last couple of weeks, which is kind of interesting. – 7:53 PM James Plowright @British_Buzz

The Lakers requested waivers on Trevor Ariza today. The 2009 title-winner with LAL played in 24 games this season, his 18th in the NBA. – 5:39 PM Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA

Quick thoughts:

-BKN had to get K. Edwards on a standard deal. He’s been a key rotation guy. J. Johnson had to go, unfortunate for him.

-PHX will likely convert I. Wainright to have another wing for the playoffs. Kaminsky hurt too.

-LAL will likely convert W. Gabriel. Not bad. – 5:32 PM Krishna Narsu @knarsu3

Was wondering why Tatum is so high in O-LEBRON given his relative lack of efficiency vs other high end stars (0.9% rel TS%) and good but not great playmaking (31st in our Playmaking Talent) and I was able to find an answer by looking at how defenses guard him in the P&R. pic.twitter.com/SYvRDcospt – 5:18 PM
