After one of the most unorthodox regular seasons in NBA history followed by a first-of-its-kind play-in tournament to determine who reached the postseason, the playoffs are moving along at full force with second-round action. Two series are already is in the books as the Phoenix Suns completed a sweep over the Denver Nuggets, and will advance to the Western Conference finals to face the Los Angeles Clippers.

In other action, the Brooklyn Nets face the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks take on the East’s top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers. Looming over all of this is a string of injuries that gives practically every team left in the field a legitimate chance to win the championship. James Harden is dealing with a hamstring issue, Kyrie Irving is sidelined with an ankle sprain and Joel Embiid is playing through a torn meniscus.
