The NBA playoffs are here with four first-round games taking place on Saturday and Sunday.

In the East, all eyes will be on the Boston Celtics vs. Brooklyn Nets series

as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving look to upset the No. 2 seed Celtics,

who are without injured center Robert Williams III, in what should be a competitive series.

Out West, injuries could dictate the teams that advance. Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic

will miss Saturday's Game 1 against the Utah Jazz because of a strained left calf,

according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Tim MacMahon. And Golden State Warriors

guard Stephen Curry is listed as probable for Game 1 against the Denver Nuggets after

missing the last 12 games of the regular season with a left foot injury.

Which returning player could have the biggest impact?
