Coach Mark Jackson said he's still debating whether to start Jermaine O'Neal or Draymond Green for Game 1 vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

Both players are likely going to see a ton of minutes next to David Lee, but Jackson just needs to figure out how he's going to get production out of his second unit. Green has really picked up his skills on offense, so he might be better suited off the bench and turn in a higher usage rate there.
Danny Granger (hamstring) will practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Saturday.

He's been out since Mar. 27 with his hamstring strain and he's likely to be limited in his return. Granger's numbers are a little better with the Clippers compared to what he was putting up with the Pacers earlier this season, but he's not going be asked to do much as the Clippers make a playoff run.
Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs.

This isn't a surprise and he hasn't seen game action since Mar. 15. Bynum played in just two games since the Pacers brought him on board and they've obviously swung and missed here. The team hasn't been getting much out of their center spot, so Ian Mahinmi could be an X-factor for their success in the postseason.
