06:20 PM ET 04.20 | Denver Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried suited up for Game 1 of their playoff series against the Warriors, but will only play in an "extreme emergency", according to the ESPN broadcast. Faried is still recovering from an ankle injury, and the loss of the big man leaves the Nuggets shorthanded to begin the postseason. Denver opens the series at home, where they have played better than any other team, losing only three games there all season. Still, Faried has been a force for Denver, starting 80 games before spraining his ankle. With Faried court side, Wilson Chandler gets the start again, with Anthony Randolph expected to get increased minutes.

Lee is hurt for the Warriors and Bugot is a slow big man.

Eh...so Andre Miller should have had the All Time NBA consecutive games played Record; but Andre was suspended for pushing LA's Blake Griffin, I think it was an incorrect suspension!
