The Lakers have one regular season game remaining Thursday night. The next six games of the suspension will be served during the playoffs. In the Mavs' 112-108 overtime loss at L.A. on April 15, World Peace played a key role with 18 points, six rebounds and four assists.
The Mavs could also face the Thunder, locked into the No. 2 seed, in a first-round series. On Tuesday, OKC coach Scott Brooks said Harden will be re-examined before Wednesday's game. He did not say if he would play Harden if he is cleared by doctors or keep him out as a precaution with the playoffs starting this weekend.
