Schedule alert! Tonight in Detroit, the Bulls are playing in their fourth and final schedule alert game of the 2017-18 season -- and our final schedule alert game of March. It marks the Bulls' fifth game in eight days, their third game in four days and the second of a back-to-back set. After hosting the Bucks last night, the Bulls headed out immediately afterward -- losing an hour along the way -- for Detroit to face the Pistons less than 24 hours later. The Pistons enter tonight's game with a one-day rest advantage.

Rockets PG Chris Paul (left hamstring soreness) will not play tonight against the Pelicans. "Maybe tomorrow" against the Hawks, coach Mike D'Antoni said.

The Lakers confirm that Isaiah Thomas will miss the next two games against Memphis and Detroit due to a sore right hip. Thomas has averaged 15.6 points and 5.0 assists with the Lakers. The veteran point guard has played in a total of 32 games this season for the Lakers and Cavaliers after rehabbing a right femoral-acetabular impingement injury with labral tear that shut him down after two games in the Eastern Conference finals.

The timetable (3-6 weeks) for return on the Kyrie Irving injury now allows the Celtics to sign a 16th player to a 10-Day Contract. Boston has met the criteria by having four players (Irving, Gordon Hayward, Daniel Theis and Marcus Smart) miss three consecutive games to injury and each player unable to perform playing services due to injury or illness for a minimum of two weeks.

Steve Kerr's view on Stephen Curry's latest injury: "This is not a major injury. We can overcome this." However, he acknowledged that he won't know for sure until the MRI results are revealed this afternoon.

The Westchester Knicks lost to the Erie Bayhawks last night but clinched the best record in the Eastern Conference (32-18) heading into the playoffs. The first round of the G League playoffs is single elimination and Westchester gets a bye into the second round. The Bayhawks can clinch a playoff berth with a win over Fort Wayne today or a Long Island Nets loss.

Jeff Hornacek, like many coaches, isn't shy about yelling at his players. A MSG Network camera found one of his players yelling back at him last night. The video clip was posted on social media. Coaches say that a profane back and forth between players and/or players and coaches is fairly common on NBA benches and, for what it's worth, Kyle O'Quinn played after the exchange. I don't think we have a Joakim Noah situation‬ here.
