  • Klay, Curry combine for 48 points in G2 win
    Klay Thompson scored 26 points on 11-of-17 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Warriors' 97-87 Game 2 win over the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Thompson and Stephen Curry (22 points, four boards, six assists, three treys) continued to play like one of the most electric backcourts of a generation, even if Curry did get dinged on his efficiency a bit with 9-of-21 makes from the field and five turnovers. Remember when Mark Jackson called this the best shooting backcourt of all time? That might be the most insightful thing he has ever said. Rotoworld.com

  • Draymond Green everywhere in Game 2 win
    Draymond Green scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in Monday's Game 2 win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Green looked hobbled at times and that's something for folks to keep an eye on, and the Warriors will want to waste no time dispatching the Pelicans so he can get some time to rest up. Otherwise, it was a podium-worthy game for the heart and soul of the Warriors. Rotoworld.com

  • Bogut a force on the interior per usual in G2
    Andrew Bogut scored five points on 2-of-5 shooting with 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks over 33 minutes in Monday's Gamw 2 win.

    Advice: Bogut looks spry even if still looks a bit hesitant on offense. As long as he's upright, he's going to be the key to maintaining an advantage over any team with size in the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Brow's huge line not enough against GSW
    Anthony Davis scored 26 points on 9-of-22 shooting (8-of-8 FTs) with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks over 45 minutes in Monday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Davis is carrying his team and there are certainly some warts but in terms of overall development, this playoff experience has been an overwhelming positive for him. He'll look to force the series back to Oakland with a win in Game 3 on Thursday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:27 pm
  • Gordon scores 23 points with five treys in G2
    Eric Gordon scored 23 points on 9-of-19 shooting (including five threes) in Monday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Gordon has exceeded expectations for this series and that's a nice little subplot in New Orleans considering his start with the franchise was basically terrible. He's a big reason the games have been close. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:25 pm
  • Evans posts 16-10-7 line despite knee issues
    Tyreke Evans played through a knee injury in Monday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors, scoring 16 points on 4-of-13 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 7-of-12 FTs) with 10 rebounds, seven assists and one block in 41 minutes.

    Advice: Considering the injury, Evans played very well even if he had some of his trademark drive-into-nowhere forays toward the hoop. His knee injury should be a point of concern for the rest of the series. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:23 pm
  • Anderson continues to struggle for NO
    Ryan Anderson hit 1-of-5 shots and played just nine minutes in Monday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Anderson has been ice-cold since returning from his knee injury and he'll eventually get it turned around, but one has to wonder if it will happen this year or not. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:20 pm
  • Cole the man for the job defending Curry
    Norris Cole scored 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench in Monday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: Cole made some key buckets but really his importance is on the defensive end, where he's the only guy that can stay in the same zip code as Stephen Curry. If the Pelicans are going to keep pushing the Warriors, they'll need to increase both Cole and Dante Cunningham's minutes (18) to match up with this Warriors squad. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:19 pm
  • Asik a controversial player to start series
    Omer Asik scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting with 13 rebounds, two steals and three turnovers over 24 minutes in Game 2 against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Asik was bad in the first half and improved greatly in the second half, with most of Basketball Twitter calling for him to see less minutes all night. He has clogged the lane and isn't a great fit for this series, but 24 minutes depending on how he looks at any given time is probably where he should be. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:16 pm
  • Joakim Noah grabs 19 boards in a win
    Joakim Noah grabbed 19 boards against the Bucks on Monday with six points, five assists and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Noah is just owning the paint right now and he was just one off his career playoff high of 20 boards. The Bucks scored just 36 points in the paint and only one Buck had more than six boards (Giannis Antetokounmpo). Noah's knee/hamstring injury is behind him and he'll be looking at minutes in the 30s as long as he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:05 pm
  • John Henson scores eight with six boards
    John Henson played 25 minutes against the Bulls on Monday with eight points, six boards, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: He was only looking at around 23 minutes tonight, but Zaza Pachulia was ejected with a few minutes left in the game. Henson did play more than Pachulia in Game 1 and he's actually played well in this series with great defense on Pau Gasol. He'll likely see minutes in the mid-20s going forward in this series. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:37 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) will play on Monday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will play against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: With Jrue Holiday (leg) out, the Pelicans are going to need plenty out of Evans. He is likely less than 100 percent and needed some treatment before this game. Evans only scored one point in Game 1 and will look to bounce back. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:54 pm
  • Tyreke Evans thinks he'll play on Monday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) said he thinks he'll be able to play on Monday night against the Warriors.

    Advice: He is questionable and will be a game-time decision. Evans' bone bruise on his knee might be an issue for him, especially if he's going to have to guard Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson. We'll have another update on Tyreke in the next hour or so. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 5:23 pm
  • Jared Dudley will play on Monday night
    Jared Dudley will play against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: He was listed as probable, but coach Jason Kidd said he can play. Kidd also said rebounding was very important today, so maybe the Bucks won't go with a lineup of Michael Carter-Williams, Jerryd Bayless and O.J. Mayo. Dudley has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 4:12 pm
  • Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holiday game-time calls
    Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are both game-time decisions against the Warriors for Monday's Game 2.

    Advice: Holiday will be limited even if he does play in this one, while Evans' availability is unlikely to be determined until right before tipoff. It's hard to envision any scenario where Evans is at 100 percent health, but Evans will do everything he can to get out there. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole is staring at an enormous role with Holiday not his usual self. Rotoworld.com

  • Millsap could ditch protective shoulder pad
    Paul Millsap said he could ditch his protective shoulder pad in Game 2.

    Advice: The move would be designed in order to improve his range of motion. Millsap struggled offensively in Game 1 as he shot just 2-of-11 from the floor, and he also admitted that he's being extra cautious with the shoulder right now. The Hawks are now dealing with injuries to both of their starting bigs with Al Horford suffering a dislocated finger. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of the Year
    Lou Williams was named the NBA's 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year on Monday.

    Advice: Isaiah Thomas finished second in the voting, and Jamal Crawford rounded out the top three. There was a darkhorse case to be made for Andre Iguodala, but he finished fourth in the voting. It's been a pretty good year for Sweet Lou after being traded for John Salmons and Lucas Nogueira last summer. Williams finished the regular season with averages of 15.5 points, 1.1 steals and 1.9 triples on 40.4 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Rumor: Aldridge could bolt in free agency
    The Blazers are fearful LaMarcus Aldridge could bolt in free agency this offseason, according to The Oregonian.

    Advice: One Blazers player estimated Aldridge is 50-50 to return after the season. This is more rumor than report, and we haven't seen much to suggest Aldridge is seriously considering a change of scenery. That being said, he'll be in high demand, and a first-round playoff exit could leave a sour taste in his mouth. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:13 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge gets 32 pts in blowout loss
    The Blazers left LaMarcus Aldridge on an island offensively on Sunday, as he scored a game-high 32 points on 13-of-34 shooting in a blowout road loss at Memphis.

    Advice: The Blazers left LaMarcus Aldridge on an island offensively on Sunday, as he scored a game-high 32 points on 13-of-34 shooting in a blowout road loss at Memphis. Aldridge snared 14 rebounds with four blocks, two 3-pointers and only two turnovers in 42 minutes, but it wasn't nearly enough with his teammates scoring a combined 54 points on 31.1 percent shooting. Teams that lose Game 1 of a seven-game series go on to lose 76.9 percent of the time, a trend Portland will try to reverse beginning on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Paul Millsap (shoulder) shoots 2-of-11 Sunday
    Paul Millsap (sore shoulder) struggled offensively on Sunday, scoring six points on 2-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes.

    Advice: ''Anybody coming off an injury, they kind of favor their injury," Millsap said before the game. "They don't want it to get hit. I'm going to try not to think about it, but it's tough.'' The Hawks' offense shot a relatively poor 43.0 percent from the field, but they knocked down 21-of-22 free throws to escape with a 99-92 win. Millsap should be ready to play heavy minutes in Game 2 whether or not his shoulder is 100 percent. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:33 pm
  • Draymond Green (ankle) limited in practice
    Draymond Green rolled his ankle during Game 1 on Saturday and was limited during Sunday's practice, but head coach Steve Kerr said it's not a big deal.

    Advice: The Warriors had a light practice today, and there's nothing suggesting this will cause Draymond to miss any time. He logged 42 minutes on Saturday and filled up the stat sheet, so he'll be a quality daily league target for Game 2 on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:34 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) questionable for Game 2
    Tyreke Evans (left knee bone bruise) is officially being listed as questionable for Game 2 against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Evans said that he's still not able to run at full speed, and that he will be a game-time decision for Game 2. He's expected to test his knee during Monday's pregame warmups to see if he is able to push off his left leg and attack the basket without experiencing any pain, so it sounds like he'll be a true game-time call. If he's unable to go, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will be asked to fill the void. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:24 pm
  • Tyreke Evans says he will be a game-time call
    Tyreke Evans (left knee bone bruise) said he will be a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Evans will not practice on Sunday, but he did say he was feeling a lot better and he wasn't walking with a limp. For what it's worth, the injury doesn't sound too serious and Evans said he will find a way to play. Expect an update after shootaround on Monday, but Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday would have to step up if Evans can't give it a go. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:51 am
  • Joakim Noah logs 35 minutes vs. Bucks
    Joakim Noah played 35 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with six points, 11 rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers.

    Advice: Coach Tom Thibodeau stuck with his nine-man rotation tonight and Noah was still able to get big minutes. Taj Gibson did have an injury, but Noah was still on track to see a major increase in playing time from his 29.1 minutes per game in his previous 10. He should be in the 35-38 minute neighborhood as long as he's healthy. Pau Gasol didn't play very well in this game, making 5-of-17 from the field for 10 points with 13 boards, four assists and three blocks. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:03 pm
  • John Henson gets 26 minutes vs. Bulls
    John Henson played 26 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 12 points, seven boards, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: He played more than Zaza Pachulia's 22 minutes and the extra length seemed to help the Bucks on defense. Henson hasn't played 26 minutes in any game since Mar. 9, so this came as a surprise. We'll see if this continues in this series, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see coach Jason Kidd change his mind. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:44 pm
  • Draymond Green flirts with a 5x5 in win
    Draymond Green stuffed the stat sheet against the Pelicans on Saturday with 15 points, 12 boards, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Up until the last five minutes of the game, Green did a great job on Anthony Davis. Green only played 30.3 minutes per game in March and April, so he's clearly set for a major bump in playing time. He had his coming out party in the postseason last year and he could take yet another big step forward this time around. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 21 points in Game 1
    Klay Thompson scored 21 points against the Pelicans on Saturday with one rebound, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He missed two clutch free throws late, which statistically only has a 1.4 percent chance of happening based on his season free throw percentage of 87.9. The Warriors only made 61.8 percent from the line today, which is well below their season average of 76.8 percent. Thompson didn't have a great game, but his teammates picked him up. It'll be the other way around at some point in this postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:08 pm
  • Andrew Bogut double-doubles in 30 minutes
    Andrew Bogut played 30 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday with 12 points, 14 boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: His help defense was great at times and his presence in the paint on both ends is huge for the Warriors. Bogut only played 23.6 minutes per game in the regular season, but he'll see his minutes rise to 30 now. Subsequently, Marreese Speights could play less and was essentially out of the rotation today. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:57 pm
  • Playoff Brow Engaged: Anthony Davis scores 35
    Anthony Davis' terrific game wasn't enough against the Warriors during a 106-99 loss on Saturday, scoring 35 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks.

    Advice: He scored 20 points in 12 fourth-quarter minutes and his advanced stats were truly awesome. In that frame, he had a true shooting percentage of 79.1, a usage rate of 42.8 and a net rating of 44.0, which made this game fairly close after it looked to be over in the third. The Pelicans need to give him the ball more or else they'll be out of the playoffs in four games. That's even more true with Tyreke Evans (knee) suffering a knee injury. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:53 pm
  • Tyreke Evans 'felt a little pop' in his knee
    Tyreke Evans (knee) said he "felt a little pop" in his left knee on Saturday and will have an MRI Saturday night.

    Advice: Coach Monty Williams said this is a new injury for Evans. The Pelicans were just starting to get healthy, but now they might be without their top scoring guard. If he's out, Norris Cole would likely draw the start unless the team wants to lift Jrue Holiday's minutes limit. We'll look for the results on the MRI later today. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Eric Gordon scores 16 points vs. Warriors
    Eric Gordon scored 16 points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal, four 3-pointers and five turnovers in 35 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Gordon was coming in red hot from deep, making 48.0 percent from beyond the arc in April to get him to averages of 15.2 points, 2.0 boards, 2.6 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.7 treys. Anthony Davis will be commanding a ton of double teams, so EJ will have plenty of chances for open looks in this series. Plus, if Tyreke Evans (knee) is out, Gordon will have a higher usage rate with more off-the-dribble stuff, too. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:39 pm
  • Norris Cole plays 34 minutes vs. Warriors
    Norris Cole played 34 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, six assists, one block and no turnovers.

    Advice: Tyreke Evans (knee) said he felt a little pop in his knee, so the Pelicans might have to roll with Cole a little more going forward. He had a few good games with the Heat in the postseason, but Cole hasn't exactly been reliable. The Pelicans will have an update on Evans on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Omer Asik doesn't play well on Saturday
    Omer Asik played 22 minutes in the starting lineup with two points, nine boards, one assist, one steal and one turnover against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He only attempted one shot from the field and only had two offensive boards. Considering he just sits in the paint and takes up space near the basket, you could argue he's setting back Anthony Davis. Asik didn't play in the final five minutes and Davis scored 18 points in those five minutes. We'll see what coach Monty Williams does in Game 2 because the Warriors are just too strong on the outside to have Asik out there. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:31 pm
  • Ryan Anderson has brutal shooting game
    Ryan Anderson made 1-of-6 from the field for three points with five boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: The Pelicans just couldn't get anything out of their other big men besides Anthony Davis. It does make a lot of sense to add some spacing to their offense and put Ryno in the starting lineup, but Quincy Pondexter actually did a decent job in that regard today. Anderson will need to play better on defense to earn more minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:18 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee bruise) will not return
    Tyreke Evans suffered a left knee bruise on Saturday and will not return.

    Advice: Evans' main issue with respect to injuries has been his left ankle, but he did have a knee injury back in December and he's had some other knee problems in the past. The Pelicans still went with Norris Cole to start the second half, so coach Monty Williams clearly wants to keep Jrue Holiday in the second unit. Cole is really going to have to play well against Stephen Curry. Evans finished with one point and one rebound. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:52 pm
  • Lou Williams' late surge isn't enough
    Lou Williams made 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points against the Wizards on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had just two points going into the fourth quarter and helped get this game to overtime. Williams was also guarding John Wall in this game, which created some problems for the Raptors late and caused some defensive breakdowns. Williams will struggle with consistency going forward, but he'll likely have a huge game or two in this series. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:53 pm
  • Jared Dudley (back) will play on Saturday
    Jared Dudley (back) will play on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: The Bucks rested him for the final two games of the season, so he should be fresh for the playoffs. Dudley is a seasoned veteran, and his experience will be a huge boost for the young Bucks. Expect Dudley to see minutes in the mid 20s tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:46 am
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) will play in Game 1
    Joakim Noah (hamstring) will play vs. the Bucks on Saturday as expected.

    Advice: He missed the last two games of the regular season because of his nagging hamstring issue, but he practiced in full on Friday and is ready to rejoin the starting lineup. Noah doesn't have any restrictions on his minutes moving forward, but there is no need for the Bulls to push him considering Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic are backing him up. Still, Noah could play more than 32 minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:24 am
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) practices Friday
    Joakim Noah (hamstring) was a full participant during Friday's practice, and he will play in Game 1 against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: Noah missed the sat out the final two games of the regular-season, but he'll be back in action for the playoffs. However, with solid depth behind him in Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic, head coach Tom Thibodeau may limit his minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:02 am
  • Joakim Noah will be ready for Game 1
    Joakim Noah (hamstring) said he'll be ready to go for Game 1 on Saturday.

    Advice: Noah had knee surgery last year and coach Tom Thibodeau believes this hamstring injury is related. Noah's rest at the end of the season seems to be precautionary. Even if he does have limitations, the emergence of Nikola Mirotic really adds some depth. Plus, Taj Gibson is playing well. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:44 pm
  • Dudley (back), Bayless (neck) practice Thurs
    Jared Dudley (back), and Jerryd Bayless (neck) practiced on Thursday.

    Advice: Dudley missed the final two games of the regular-season with a sore back, while Bayless missed the regular-season finale with a sore neck. Neither of these injuries sounds serious, so these guys should be ready for Game 1 against the Bulls on Saturday. That being said, both players will likely have their minutes trimmed down a bit for the postseason, and they're unlikely to do much on the stat sheet with the guys ahead of them in the rotation fully healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:27 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 25 points in 16 minutes
    Klay Thompson needed just 16 minutes to score 25 points against the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five 3-pointers and two turnovers.

    Advice: He made 8-of-12 from the field and all four attempts from the line. It's so awesome to see that Klay usually matches his high usage rate with high efficiency. In fact, in his last 17 games with a usage rate greater than 30, he posted an effective field goal percentage of at least 50.0 16 times. It's kind of crazy how much Stephen Curry is overshadowing Klay. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:33 pm
  • Draymond Green scores eight points
    Draymond Green scored eight points with three rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: His minutes were down to just 20 tonight, which was part of the plan. Green's defensive numbers are awesome this season and he's capable of guarding anyone. Additionally, he's allowed his man to shoot 9.0 percent less from shots within six feet compared to his averages. He'll be a popular Defensive Player of the Year pick. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:30 pm
  • Jared Dudley likely to be ready for playoffs
    Jared Dudley sat out for a second straight game due to a sore back in Wednesday's finale against the Celtics.

    Advice: However, he's expected to be ready to go for the Bucks in the playoffs, which start Saturday against the Bulls. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Aldridge leads Blazers to 'No. 4 seed'
    LaMarcus Aldridge returned to action on Wednesday and had 19 points and eight rebounds to lead the Blazers in a loss to the Mavericks.

    Advice: The Blazers are technically the No. 4 seed in the West, but will face the No. 5 seeded Grizzlies, who will have home-court advantage due to having a better record than Memphis. Damian Lillard scored 17, but it was reserve Tim Frazier who was one of the surprises of the night, racking up 13 points, 10 assists and a 3-pointer off the bench in 30 minutes. Nicolas Batum sat this one out, and is iffy for Game 1 against the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:07 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 5 points in 27 minutes
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) returned to action on Wednesday vs. the Bulls and scored five points on 2-of-9 shooting with six boards and four assists in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He managed to save his line by adding four steals and two blocks, but he looked really rusty tonight and the Hawks probably should have rested him. Millsap said that there was still some soreness in his shoulder, so it looks like the issue could linger into the playoffs. The good news is that Millsap should be able to play through the injury, but we will pass along additional details if we hear anything else. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • Anthony Davis leads Pels to playoffs, OKC out
    Anthony Davis had 31 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks on 12-of-26 shooting as the Pelicans beat the Spurs 108-103 in Wednesday's finale.

    Advice: The win not only put the Pelicans in the playoffs, but knocked the Oklahoma City Thunder out. AD played well down the stretch and calmly knocked down open jumpers and blocked a couple shots to close the door on the Spurs. The Pelicans will face the Warriors (who have lost just two home games this season) in the first round of the playoffs, when Davis will make his postseason debut. And getting to see both Davis and Steph Curry in a playoff series should be a treat to watch. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:52 pm
  • Lou Williams gets a DNP-CD on Wednesday
    Lou Williams was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Dwane Casey said he was going to limit Williams and he rested him the entire way. Williams had a terrific season and he's one of the three players most likely to win Sixth Man of the Year along with Isaiah Thomas and Andre Iguodala. He'll be a very important piece for the Raptors. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:19 pm
  • Jared Dudley out for Wednesday
    Jared Dudley will rest against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: There could be more rested players on the way for the Bucks. Plus, the Bucks will likely limit some of their guys. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:22 pm
  • Lou Williams will have a minutes restriction
    Lou Williams will have a minutes restriction against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: If Lou plays less, there should be more minutes going to Terrence Ross, Greivis Vasquez and maybe even James Johnson. Considering there are so many playing tonight, we wouldn't suggest using Williams. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:21 pm
  • Paul Millsap (shoulder) will start Wednesday
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) will be in the starting lineup against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: His shoulder was still a little tender on Tuesday, so it's a surprise to see Millsap active when the Hawks have nothing to play for. Millsap has missed the last five games, so his minutes will likely be held in check tonight. If anything, the Hawks will just be glad to have him back with playoffs right around the corner. Mike Muscala will move back to the bench, but he could get some decent minutes with Mike Scott on the shelf. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:40 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) will play Wednesday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) will play on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks, and he is expecting to see his normal allotment of minutes.

    Advice: Nicolas Batum (knee) and C.J. McCollum (ankle) have already been ruled out, meaning Aldridge will be able to take as many shots as he pleases Wednesday. Aldridge has missed the last two games, but the Blazers likely want him to establish some rhythm leading into the playoffs. Aldridge obviously belongs in all lineups, while Meyers Leonard will shift to the bench and loses most of his value. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:13 am
  • Joakim Noah, Kirk Hinrich out Wednesday
    Joakin Noah (left hamstring tendinitis) and Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play vs. the Hawks on Wednesday according to head coach Tom Thibodeau.

    Advice: For what it's worth, Thibodeau said that Noah will be ready for the playoffs, so the Bulls are obviously erring on the side of caution tonight. With Noah on the shelf, Taj Gibson will likely draw the start and should be plugged into all lineups, while Nikola Mirotic will also see an uptick in minutes and can be considered a must-start option in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) probable Wednesday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Head coach Terry Stotts said on Monday that he was hopeful Aldridge would be able to play Wednesday, so it's looking like he has a good chance of suiting up tomorrow. He'll be very busy on offense with Nicolas Batum (knee) and C.J. McCollum (ankle) already having been ruled out, so he'll be someone to consider in daily leagues. Meyers Leonard would head back to the bench with Aldridge active, rendering him a negligible option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul Millsap (shoulder) questionable for Wed
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) is officially being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it doesn't seem very logical for the Hawks to risk Millsap aggravating his shoulder injury in a meaningless game, so we're going to assume he's much more closer to doubtful than questionable. Mike Muscala will draw the start if Millsap can't go, but he has been struggling lately, and would make for a risky play in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:04 pm
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) doubtful Wednesday
    Joakim Noah (left hamstring tendinitis) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Noah spent Monday's game on the sidelines as well, so we're not expected him to suit up on Wednesday. Taj Gibson will draw the start if Noah is indeed unavailable, with Nikola Mirotic logging extended minutes off the bench. Both players offer plenty of upside, and they'd make for fine plug-and-play options in daily leagues. This seems like a very minor issue for Noah, and while he's unlikely for Monday, all signs are pointing towards him being available for Game 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul Millsap says shoulder is still 'tender'
    Paul Millsap said that his shoulder "is still a little tender in areas," and there is still no official decision on his status for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Advice: We're going to assume Millsap spends Wednesday's game on the sidelines, as the Hawks would like him to be 100 percent for the playoffs, and they have nothing to gain in a meaningless game against the Bulls. Mike Scott (back) has already been ruled out for Wednesday, so if Millsap does indeed sit out tomorrow’s game, Mike Muscala will get all the run he can handle. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul Millsap able to practice on Tuesday
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) took part in practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: Millsap has missed five games with his shoulder injury and will likely make it a sixth on Wednesday as the Hawks have nothing to play for against the Bulls. With Hawks' focused on getting Millsap healthy for the playoffs, Mike Scott and Mike Muscala will likely again see a minutes boost on Wednesday and would be a solid play in daily leagues if Millsap sits.

  • Thompson hits 15-of-20 shots for 42 points
    Klay Thompson decided that one insane shooting game wasn't enough this season, hitting 15-of-20 shots (including eight treys) for 42 points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Warriors' 111-107 win over the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: The game was nowhere near as close as the score suggested so his teammates had some slow nights. Harrison Barnes logged 23 minutes with just two points, two boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks, and Andrew Bogut went for six and seven with three assists and one block. Steph Curry scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting with three treys, four boards, eight assists and a steal, and Draymond Green scored five points with nine rebounds, four assists and one steal. Steve Kerr said that he doesn't want to mess with their rhythm, but they'll all possibly see low minutes on Wednesday against the Nuggets. And the studs will all be worth using if they're starting that game. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon scores 22 points; Pelicans win
    Eric Gordon scored 22 points on 7-of-14 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds and two assists in the Pelicans' win over the Wolves on Monday.

    Advice: Gordon is picking it up as the Pelicans try to close out the regular season with a trip to the playoffs. They hold the tiebreaker against the Thunder, so if they win on Wednesday against the Spurs then they'll have punched their ticket. Tyreke Evans added 22 points, three rebounds and five assists, and Anthony Davis went for 24 and 11 with five assists, two steals and six blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:42 am
  • Joakim Noah (knee) out, Taj Gibson to start
    Joakim Noah will not play against the Nets on Monday and Taj Gibson will start.

    Advice: The team is calling it "left knee tendinitis" but it doesn't sound serious. Taj Gibson will start and could be in for a huge line. Nikola Mirotic also greatly benefits here. Noah should be considered questionable for Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 13, 3:52 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) hopeful for Wed
    Coach Terry Stotts said he's hoping LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) can play on Wednesday night against the Mavericks.

    Advice: He's out against the Thunder tonight and the Blazers will start Meyers Leonard again. It's great to hear Aldridge is getting close because the Blazers will obviously need him this weekend for the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 13, 3:40 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) ruled out for Monday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) will not play on Monday against the Thunder.

    Advice: It's a big break for the Thunder as the team fights the Pelicans for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Without Aldridge available, Meyers Leonard is likely to draw another start. Leonard is averaging 10.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 triples on 50.9 percent shooting. We know what you're thinking: We're surprised, too. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 13, 10:21 am
  • Anthony Davis' 27 points not enough vs. HOU
    The Pelicans fell in Houston on Sunday despite Anthony Davis' team-high 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: Davis hit 10-of-16 FGs and 7-of-10 FTs with only one turnover in 39 minutes in the disappointing loss, which prevented the No. 8 seed Pelicans from gaining ground on the No. 9 seed Thunder. They may have earned a subtle victory by default, however, as Russell Westbrook faces a one-game suspension after picking up his 16th technical foul. Expect an all-out effort from Davis and co. when they play the Wolves in Minnesota on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 6:46 pm
  • Ryan Anderson scores 15 points w/ two 3s
    Ryan Anderson scored 15 points in 27 minutes vs. Houston on Sunday, hitting 6-of-13 shots including two 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's great to see Anderson healthy and once again knocking down some of his his plentiful attempts from the perimeter. He rounded out his evening with four rebounds and one turnover in 27 minutes, but didn't have any assists, steals or blocks to his credit. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 6:44 pm
  • John Henson blocks three shots in 19 minutes
    John Henson came off the Bucks' bench for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in only 19 minutes vs. the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: A lack of playing time has been Henson's biggest obstacle to sustained value. Owners should remember his per-36-minute averages next season -- 13.9 points (56.8 percent FGs, 56.8 percent FTs), 9.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.8 blocks. His tendency to get into foul trouble doesn't help his cause, but the biggest roadblock is veteran C Zaza Pachulia, who is under contract for $5.2 million next year. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 2:51 pm
  • Jared Dudley expected to rest Mon. & Wed.
    Jared Dudley went scoreless in 28 minutes off Milwaukee's bench on Sunday, and Jason Kidd said after the game that Dudley will likely rest on Monday and Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been struggling with back and knee issues lately, which helps to explain his 0-of-4 shooting on Sunday, and it makes sense for the Bucks to rest him with the No. 6 seed locked up. His absence should open up more minutes for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and even O.J. Mayo. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 2:49 pm
  • Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday will play Sunday
    Anthony Davis (throat) and Jrue Holiday (leg) went through shootaround and are ready to play vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

    Advice: The Pelicans are battling the Thunder for the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference, so it's a huge boost that both Davis and Holiday are ready to roll. Davis was reportedly having trouble speaking after the injury, but he should be able to have a big game vs. Dwight Howard and will likely see his normal allotment of minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 9:34 am
  • Draymond Green stuffs stat sheet as per usual
    Draymond Green scored 13 points with 14 boards, five assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: He said he should win the Defensive Player of the Year award, but Draymond has to be favorite for Most Improved Player, too. Green is shaping up to be a second-round target in fantasy drafts next season. The Warriors are going to have to ante up like MOP for the MIP this summer. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 11:02 pm
  • Lou Williams scores 29 points vs. Heat
    Lou Williams scored 29 points against the Heat on Saturday with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 17 points in the second quarter, which was more than the Knicks and Magic scored in the second quarter today (15). Williams is really solidifying his chances for Sixth Man of the Year and is scoring in bunches right now. In his last five, he averaged 21.6 points, 2.2 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.6 treys. He's also led the team in scoring 17 times this season. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 7:44 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge only has a sore foot
    An MRI was negative on LaMarcus Aldridge's foot and he's only dealing with soreness.

    Advice: This is good news and the Blazers are just taking it easy on their star power forward. They're almost a lock to be the fourth seed, so the risk outweighs the reward. Meyers Leonard is worth a look tonight against the Jazz. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 5:21 pm
  • Anthony Davis (throat) goes through practice
    Anthony Davis (throat) went through practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Even though he's still having trouble speaking, Davis should be fine for a huge game against the Rockets on Sunday. He may or may not have to deal with Dwight Howard, but fantasy owners should start him regardless. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 11:39 am
  • Noah won't have restrictions in the playoffs
    After talks with the coaching staff, trainers and the front office, Joakim Noah said that his minutes restriction will be lifted for the playoffs.

    Advice: Noah has been on a minutes limit of round 32 minutes per game for most of the season (he has gone over that number several times), but it's encouraging that the Bulls are showing confidence in his health leading into the playoffs. This news obviously doesn't help fantasy owners, but if anything at least the restrictions kept him healthy for most of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Davis survives throat contusion, NO wins
    Anthony Davis survived a throat contusion in the Pelicans' 90-75 win over the Suns on Friday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting (5-of-11 FTs) with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in just 23 minutes.

    Advice: Davis hasn't been the elite player he has been all season in the past two weeks or so, but he's surviving and so are the Pellies in their race with the Thunder. The two teams are tied with three games to play and New Orleans holding the tiebreaker. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 11:33 pm
  • Asik grabs 18 rebounds in win over PHO
    Omer Asik grabbed 18 rebounds to go with three points and two assists in 22 minutes on Friday against the Suns.

    Advice: Despite the big game on the glass he's not a valuable player in standard leagues. But if you're targeting that category, give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 11:30 pm
  • Anderson continues to slump on Friday
    Ryan Anderson continued to flop in Friday's win over the Suns, hitting just 1-of-7 shots for three points, three rebounds and two blocks in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Anderson's one make was a three and he's on a short leash with Monty Williams right now. If he makes some shots he'll probably get more playing time, but how much is certainly a question, and in the end he's certainly a guy you can drop. If you're desperate for threes, however, you might gamble on the chance for a bounce-back performance. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 11:28 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (foot) out for Saturday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (left foot sprain) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: The Blazers are having some really bad luck with injuries right now. Hopefully, this is more precautionary than anything because there were no indications he was hurt on Thursday. The Blazers would probably be wise to rest guys because they're losing all of their forwards to injury. As for Saturday, Meyers Leonard will be a very popular play in daily leagues following a big 17-point, 15-board outing the last time LMA missed a game. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 7:19 pm
  • Lou Williams hits a game-winning trey
    Lou Williams made a game-winning 3-pointer with nine seconds left on Friday against the Magic, finishing with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He didn't run the offense nearly as much as usual, but his minutes didn't take a big hit. Williams also closed this game out with Terrence Ross (ankle) on the sidelines, so that should continue. Expect Williams to play 30-33 minutes sans Ross. He's worth owning in standard leagues regardless. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 6:57 pm
  • Anthony Davis returns on Friday night
    Anthony Davis (throat contusion) returned to action for the fourth quarter.

    Advice: Breathe, fantasy owners and Pelicans fans. We'll let you know how Davis looks tonight in a huge game. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 6:46 pm
  • Anthony Davis suffers a throat contusion
    Anthony Davis suffered a throat contusion on Friday night and is questionable to return.

    Advice: Earl Barron hit him right in the neck and Davis went to the locker room. He didn't come out for warmups and is not going to start the second half. Ryan Anderson would benefit most after looking terrible in his last few games. We'll keep an eye out for the Brow. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 6:18 pm
  • Paul Millsap (shoulder) out Friday and Sunday
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) has been ruled out for both Friday's game vs. the Hornets, as well as Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: It'll be Mike Muscala and Mike Scott stepping it up in Millsap's absence, with Scott offering a bit more upside. They'll draw a favorable matchup against the Hornets tonight, and after going off for 20 points and eight rebounds on Wednesday, Scott is someone to consider in daily leagues. Millsap is just dealing with a shoulder contusion, and head coach Mike Budenholzer said he's not concerned about Millsap's availability for the playoffs, so this doesn't sound like a major issue. We'll consider him questionable for Monday's game vs. the Knicks. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 9:00 am
  • Paul Millsap (shoulder) unlikely for Friday
    Paul Millsap (shoulder) is unlikely to suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Millsap was not made available to the media during shootaround, and he's listed as "out" in the Hawks' game notes, so it seems very unlikely he'll be able to play. With Millsap unavailable, Mike Muscala will continue to start, but with averages of 10.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 1.0 block per game as a starter, he's not much more than a low-end play in deep leagues. Mike Scott will also see some extended run, and coming off a 20-point game, he'd be someone to consider in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 7:44 am
  • Andrew Bogut plays 32 minutes on Thursday
    Andrew Bogut played 32 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday, scoring 10 points with seven rebounds and four assists.

    Advice: Sure, he wasn't too aggressive on defense and he wasn't too involved in the offense, but why is Bogut playing 32 minutes? The Warriors were burned badly last season with a Bogut injury, so the risk is obviously outweighing the reward. All that said, he looks great and is as agile as ever. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 9, 10:30 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 26 points vs. POR
    Klay Thompson scored 26 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers against the Blazers on Thursday.

    Advice: It's the 70th time Thompson and Stephen Curry have both scored at least 20 points in their careers. Thompson really needed a bounce-back game following a two-game cold spell, which had a combined 13 points on 5-of-21 from the field. He's one of the most durable players in the league, but there's a very good chance he'll be rested down the stretch. The Warriors are at home in all three of their final games. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 9, 10:25 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge scores 27 points vs. GSW
    LaMarcus Aldridge scored a team-high 27 points against the Warriors during a 116-105 loss on Thursday, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had some trouble on close-range shots with Draymond Green defending him. Aldridge was rested on Monday night and the Blazers will likely take it easy on him going forward. Yes, coach Terry Stotts said he isn't planning on resting guys, but he might change his mind with all the injuries occurring to his team. Rotoworld.com
