There are just a few days left in the NBA's regular season, with the playoffs starting Saturday, April 14.

The Warriors will aim to defend their title after overcoming multiple injuries on their roster this season. The biggest question that remains is when Stephen Curry will return from his left MCL sprain.

In the Western Conference, the Rockets have clinched the number one seed for the first time in franchise history, while the Raptors clinched the top spot in  the East in a year both teams set their franchise record for wins.

Seeding still needs to be determined for most teams, but only one spot in the postseason is still undecided, and that will be claimed by the winner of Wednesday's Timberwolves-Nuggets game. With those two teams tied at 46-35, just a game behind the Pelicans, Spurs and Thunder, there is still plenty of movement that will happen in the standings.

As of Wednesday morning, here's what the opening round of the playoffs would look like.

EASTERN CONFERENCE

1) Toronto Raptors (59-22) vs. 8) Washington Wizards (43-38)

2) Boston Celtics (54-27) vs. 7) Miami Heat (43-38)
