Paul Millsap got into early foul trouble during the Nuggets' Game 4 loss, finishing with five points, six boards, three assists, three turnovers and five fouls in 17 minutes. Millsap has been tasked with slowing down Anthony Davis in this series. He fared well in Game 3 but AD made a point of going right at him on Thursday, and Millsap didn't stand a chance. He's headed into unrestricted free agency, at age 35, and his performance this postseason suggests he won't be paid much more than the going rate for a locker-room mentor.

Anthony Davis (left ankle) is being listed as questionable for Game 5 against the Nuggets on Saturday. Frank Vogel said he was expecting Davis to be good to go for Game 5, so we'd say he's a lot closer to probable for tomorrow's closeout game. Check back for another update following Saturday's shootaround.
