Kyrie Irving Uncertain For Game 1 of Eastern Conference Finals

Chris Chambers/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Kyrie Irving's status for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Atlanta Hawks remains uncertain, as Irving continues to deal with injuries to his left knee and right foot.

Irving sat out the Cleveland Cavaliers' practice on Saturday, a day after visiting with team doctors for his left knee, which he aggravated in the second quarter of the Cavs' 94-73 Game 6 win over the Chicago Bulls.

"He's going through a lot of treatment, and we're monitoring and just hoping that he progresses from here until game time," Cavs coach David Blatt said.

After the Bulls game, Irving was certain that he would be ready for the start of the next series against the Hawks. However, head coach David Blatt did not confirm he would be in the lineup come gametime.

Marreese Speights Has Strained Calf, Will Miss Game 4

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(MEMPHIS) -- Golden State Warriors center Marreese Speights is out at least one week after an MRI revealed a right calf strain.

The Warriors announced Sunday that Speights has been ruled out for Monday night's Game 4 and he will be re-evaluated in a week.

The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of Golden State's 99-89 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Saturday night's Game 3.

After scoring six straight points early in the fourth quarter, Speights limped to the bench rubbing the back of his lower right leg.

Speights averaged 10.4 points in 19.5 minutes per game this season.

Gasol's Status for Game 4 Unknown 

NBA via Los Angeles Lakers(CHICAGO) -- Bulls forward Pau Gasol has a strained left hamstring and his status for Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers is unknown.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said the MRI on Gasol's hamstring revealed the strain.

"[He's] day to day," Thibodeau said. "He didn't do anything today. We just did some walkthrough stuff."

Thibodeau wasn't committed to whether Gasol would play on Sunday or not.

"We'll see how he feels [Sunday]," Thibodeau said.

Gasol said after Game 3 that he hurt the hamstring in Game 2 and was hoping he would be able to play through the injury, but he wasn't able to do so. Gasol scored six points in 22 minutes and had to leave the game in the second half.

"We don't know the [extent] of his injury yet," Bulls forward Taj Gibson said. "I hope he'll play, I hope he'll be OK, but if not it's up to us to come together as a team. Like we've said, it's going to take everybody on our roster to get the job done. You never know when your number is going to be called. Just got to be ready."

Restricted Free Agent Mirza Teletovic Hopes to Stay with the Nets

Brian A. Westerholt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After remarkable comeback last season from a blood clot in his lungs this past season, forward Mirza Teletovic wishes to remain with the Nets going forward.

A restricted free agent at the end of the season, Teletovic's status going forward is unknown.

Back in January he was diagnosed with blood clots, and his career was in doubt. He wound up making his return to the court during the team's opening round playoff loss against the Atlanta Hawks.

“I like Brooklyn, people are great, I know the team and everyone, especially doctors, treated me great when all that happened," Teletovic said, via Nets Daily. "I really would like to stay in Brooklyn,” he said referring to the multiple blood clots found in his lungs in January. “I know my team-mates and everything is really great. I do not know what will be, but I’ll know more in June when free agent market starts.”

Primarily a bench player during his three-year career, Teletovic has proven he can be a solid contriubtor to a team as he's a career .362% shooter from the 3-point line.

Bulls' Guard Jimmy Butler Named NBA's Most Improved Player

iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- In the midst of the best season of his career, the NBA has named Chicago Bulls guard Jimmy Butler as the league's Most Improved Player.

After averaging 13.1 points per game on 39.7% shooting from the floor, Butler upped his average to 20.0 points per game this season on 46.2% shooting from the floor. He also emerged as one of the Bulls' best defensive players.

"It's a testament to his work ethic and what he's done," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Each year he's gotten a lot better, and I think it's being recognized by a lot of people now. Where he is today and comparing that to where he was four years ago, he's made a gigantic jump."

Butler earned 92 of a possible 129 first-place votes for the award. Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green finished second in the voting while Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert finished third.

The timing of the award works in Butler's favor, as he will become a restricted free agent at the end of the season.
