1) We’ve had our first Anthony Davis injury fire-drill. What did we learn?

2) Tyler Herro draws a start, lights up Hawks (23 points, five 3s).

3) Brandon Clarke crushes, goes 16-12 with defensive goodies; Jonas Valanciunas still dealing with an ankle injury.

4) What’s your level of concern on Blake Griffin?

5) Carsen Edwards just hit NINE 3s against CLE. Any room for him in Boston?

Our experts discuss the last of their draft prep as we head into the biggest fantasy basketball draft weekend of the year, while also revealing who’s moved up and down on their draft board. (12:29)
