When the Cleveland Cavaliers open up the NBA playoffs with Game 1 of their first-round series with the Indiana Pacers on Sunday (3:30 p.m. ET, ABC), the Cavs will play their first game with a completely healthy team since overhauling their roster at the trade deadline.

And with everyone available for the first time, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue vows to go deep into his bench during the postseason. “You usually go nine,” Lue said, describing a typical playoff rotation. “I think we’ve been nine in the past, but I think it’s going to be important to go 10 for us.”

Grizzlies guard/forward C.J. Miles exited Saturday’s game against the Washington Wizards with left foot soreness. An MRI revealed a stress reaction, which will require approximately 3-6 weeks of off-loading to resolve. Miles is anticipated to miss the remainder of the season but a full recovery is expected.

Miles appeared in 53 games (one start) for the Grizzlies and Toronto Raptors in what was his 14th NBA season. He saw action in 13 games as a reserve for the Grizzlies and averaged 9.3 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.6 minutes after he was acquired from the Raptors on Feb. 7.

Dirk Nowitzki has reclaimed the No. 6 spot on the NBA’s all-time scoring list, passing Wilt Chamberlain on Monday night in what will probably be the final major milestone of his legendary career.

Nowitzki, the longtime face of the Dallas Mavericks franchise who is playing his 21st and likely final season, spent a few years as the sixth-leading scorer in NBA history before LeBron James passed him earlier this season. He entered Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans needing four points to pass Chamberlain, who scored 31,419 points in his Hall of Fame career, and accomplished the feat by swishing his first two shots of the night.
