  • NBA suspends Nick Calathes for 20 games
    Nick Calathes will be suspended 20 games for violation of the NBA's Anti-Drug Policy.

    Advice: The suspension starts now which means he won't be see postseason action. Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, an over-the-counter athletic supplement. He was solid this year and filled in admirably while Mike Conley was out earlier this season, averaging 14.7 points, 4.7 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.3 triples in his seven starts. Beno Udrih will back up Mike Conley, who figures to get more than 40 minutes per night vs. OKC in round one. Rotoworld.com

  • Darrell Arthur planning to pick up option
    Darrell Arthur is planning to pick up his player option of $3.4 million this offseason.

    Advice: It's kind of a no-brainer for Arthur after yet another injury-plagued season. He played just 17.1 minutes per game and couldn't really get much playing time despite the Nuggets having very little depth down the stretch. He The 26-year-old forward won't have much fantasy value next season. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Redick feeling refreshed for playoff run
    J.J. Redick said he feels "refreshed" on Friday as the Clippers prepare for a deep playoff run.

    Advice: He has been dealing with a bulging disc in his back, missing 25 games while rehabbing. When asked if he anticipates head coach Doc Rivers placing a limit on his minutes, Redick said he will remain ready when his number is called. "If we look at it from need in the game, needing every win we can get, if he needs me, I'm available." Redick posted a career-high 15.2 points per game in his first season in Los Angeles.

  • Vogel still not sure on his rotation
    Coach Frank Vogel said he'll adjust his rotations on a game-by-game basis during the playoffs.

    Advice: "It'll vary night by night and we'll see how the flow of the game is going," Vogel said. The first player that comes to mind here is Roy Hibbert. He's been yanked from games on several occasions and has quickly become a huge liability on offense. In fact, he had the second-worst effective field goal percentage among qualifiers this season and looked as slow as his teammate Andrew Bynum. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric Bledsoe remains noncommittal on contract
    Eric Bledsoe has remained noncommittal about his status as a restricted free agent this summer.

    Advice: He was superb in his first season with the Suns and the team did not extend his contract heading into the season. However, the Suns will almost do anything they can to bring him back, and Bledsoe seems to be a part of the team and wasn't happy about missing out on the playoffs. "The way we lost the last couple games to the Spurs and Dallas, it definitely put a taste in my mouth," Bledsoe said. He'll have high-end fantasy value next year no matter where he lands.

  • The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic on Friday
    The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic from the D-League on Friday.

    Advice: He was sent to the D-League for extra playing time against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Kuzmic grabbed a game-high 18 rebounds in the win. In three D-League games he posted averages of 20.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, and shot an outstanding 77.1 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:36 pm
  • Rockets recall Canaan and Covington
    The Rockets recalled Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington on Friday.

    Advice: The two were sent down to the D-League to get extra playing time. Canaan played well in the loss, scoring a game-high 25 points and he will continue to be the Rockets third-string point guard behind Patrick Beverley and Jeremy Lin. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:26 pm
  • Kupchak: Pau Gasol is a priority this summer
    General manager Mitch Kupchak said on Friday that Pau Gasol is a "priority" this offseason.

    Advice: "If you look at the free agents, there probably isn't anyone as good as Pau on the board," Kupchak said. While this isn't a surprising quote, the Lakers should certainly look to bring Pau back despite their ending result on the standings. He finished with averages of 17.4 points, 9.7 boards and 1.5 blocks, so he'll be a high pick in fantasy leagues next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley says ankle is fine
    Michael Beasley (ankle) said he is fine.

    Advice: Beasley rolled his ankle during Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Sixers. He'll be available for Game 1 against the Bobcats Sunday, but probably will end up as a DNP-CD. Rotoworld.com

  • Joakim Noah (bereavement) skips practice
    Joakim Noah (personal) did not practice Friday.

    Advice: Noah was excused for bereavement reasons. He's in New York, but is expected to rejoin the team in Chicago Saturday. The Bulls open up their first-round series against the Wizards at 7pm ET on Sunday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Lakers plan to keep Marshall on team option
    The Lakers plan to pick up Kendall Marshall's $915,000 team option.

    Advice: The Lakers need bodies given their nine unrestricted free agents. Marshall was asked to do more than he's capable of this year, but got valuable experience while running the show for most of the year. In 45 starts, he averaged 8.1 points, 9.5 assists, 1.3 3-pointers and 1.0 steals. Marshall isn't a good enough shooter and has too many physical limitations to be a plus NBA point guard, but he'd be a fine backup. Rotoworld.com
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday
    Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday.

    Advice: Livingston sat out the final five games of the regular season to rest his sore big toe. He's fully expected to play and start in Game 1 against the Raptors Saturday. Livingston was an underrated glue guy during the regular season, averaging 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 steals in his 54 starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Nuggets can negotiate with Faried this summer
    The Nuggets can begin extension negotiations with Kenneth Faried in July.

    Advice: Faried is entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2014-15. He's coming off a spectacular second half of the season that saw him average 18.8 points, 10.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals while shooting 54.6 percent after the All-Star break. If Faried believes he can sustain that level of play -- and there's little reason to think he can't -- then he'd be better off playing out his contract and hitting unrestricted free agency in the summer of 2015. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:56 am
  • Kings plan to keep Rudy Gay no matter what
    The Kings will try to retain Rudy Gay even if he exercises his opt-out clause.

    Advice: Gay can become an unrestricted free agent by opting out of a contract that will pay him $19.3 million next year. We'd be a little surprised if he passed up that kind of cash, but it's possible considering how much the Kings coaches and front office reportedly like him. Gay may see the opt-out as a chance to get a more guaranteed money in a long-term deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramon Sessions would welcome return to MILW
    Free agent Ramon Sessions said he'd welcome a return to Milwaukee.

    Advice: Sessions is one of the few players in the league who actually embraces the dysfunction in Milwaukee. He was drafted there at No. 56 overall in 2007. "I want to stay loyal to them like they did to me," he said. We're not sure if the Bucks want Sessions back, but we do know he's still a fantasy asset whenever he's getting significant minutes. In 28 games for the Bucks this season, Sessions averaged 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds. Rotoworld.com

  • Antetokounmpo plans to get stronger
    Giannis Antetokounmpo said he's going to focus on getting stronger this summer.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo was playing in Greece's second division before making the leap to the NBA this season. Considering that and his 6'9/210 frame, he handled himself very well. At age 19, his per-36 minute stats were 10.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.8 3-pointers. It's the kind of line we look for when trying to project future fantasy assets. The Greek Freak's progress this offseason will determine how much playing time he gets next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Thadd Young won't rule out asking for trade
    Thaddeus Young said it's "a possibility" that he'll ask management to trade him this summer.

    Advice: Young has repeatedly said all he wants to do is win, and the Sixers are at least two years away from doing that. The 25-year-old is under contract for $9.1 million next season and then has a player option for $9.7 million in 2015-16. Given those reasonable cap hits and Young's unique ability to score without plays called for him, he'd attract plenty of attention on the trade market. Thadd averaged career-highs in points (17.9), assists (2.3), steals (2.1) and 3-pointers (1.1) this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bulls say Rose will return at 100 percent
    Bulls GM Gar Forman said there's "no question" Derrick Rose (knee) will come back and be 100 percent" next season.

    Advice: In a vacuum, Rose's surgery to repair his meniscus isn't a crippling procedure. It helps athletes maintain the cushion in their knee so there aren't more problems down the line. But when combined with Rose's ugly rehab from his 2012 ACL tear, there's obvious reason for concern. This is a player that relies on athleticism -- not a jump shot -- to be dominant. Rose averaged just 15.9 points and 4.3 assists on 35.4 percent shooting in 10 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bulls, Lakers, Rockets, Clips to pursue Melo?
    The Bulls, Rockets, Lakers and Clippers are among the teams expected to pursue unrestricted free agent Carmelo Anthony.

    Advice: The Knicks can offer Anthony a five-year, $129 contract. The max he can get from other teams is four years and $95 million. But the Knicks have almost no room to reshape their roster, so re-signing there would not give Anthony his best shot at his stated goal of winning. If he's serious about competing for a title, Melo will take a massive pay cut and sign with Chicago, which could field a starting five of Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Anthony, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah.

  • Al Horford won't make it back for playoffs
    Al Horford (pectoral) is out for the entire preseason.

    Advice: Fans were holding out hope that Horford could make a return if the Hawks upset the Pacers and advance to Round 2. It's not happening. Horford has torn each of his pectorals in the last three years and this tear is considered more severe. He's concentrating on getting healthy for 2014-15, where he'll be a risk/reward kind of fantasy play. Horford was averaging 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks on 56.7 percent shooting in the 29 games before his December injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Joel will exercise player option
    A source tells CSNNW.com that Celtics F/C Joel Anthony will exercise his player option for the 2014/15 season.

    Advice: It's a no-brainer decision for Anthony as he'll earn a guaranteed $3.8 million next season and then become an unrestricted free agent in the summer of 2015. He averaged 7.1 minutes per game in 21 appearances for the Celtics this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:29 am
  • Enes Kanter was 'miffed' by lack of minutes
    Enes Kanter was "clearly miffed" at not receiving more playing time this season.

    Advice: "They told us it was a rebuilding year," Kanter said as the Jazz packed up their things. "If we are not winning a championship, why are the young guys not more together?" It's a very, very valid point. Kanter often lost minutes to guys like Marvin Williams and Richard Jefferson, finishing at 26.7 minutes a night on 37 starts. He'd benefit from a coaching change. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:24 am
  • Jazz GM expects to retain RFA Hayward
    GM Dennis Lindsey said he hopes restricted free agent Gordon Hayward is a "career Jazz member."

    Advice: At just 24 years old, Hayward was one of just four players to average 15 points, five rebounds and five assists. The others were LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Michael Carter-Williams. Hayward's 41.3 percent shooting leaves a lot to be desired, but the Jazz would be silly not to match any offer within reason. They can afford him and a max free agent if it comes to that. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:17 am
  • Burke claims finger bothered him all year
    Trey Burke said a fractured index finger bothered him for his entire rookie season.

    Advice: Burke fractured his right (shooting) index finger during an October preseason game. He underwent surgery and sat out the first 12 regular season games before returning. "It's still stiff," he said. "... It healed, but I'm not able to bend it all the way yet. I'm going to work on that a lot." Burke struggled with both his outside shooting and finishing at the rim as a rookie, averaging just 12.8 points on 38.0 percent shooting while playing 32.8 minutes a night. We wouldn't blame much of that on the finger. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:09 am
  • Dwyane Wade says injuries aren't as bad
    Dwyane Wade (knee) said he's feeling better to start this postseason compared to last postseason.

    Advice: Wade added he wasn't concerned about continuity with LeBron James and how his last three games helped him. At the conclusion of the playoffs last year, Wade mentioned how much he battled through injury, which explains why the Heat managed him so severely this season. The bottom line is it looks like their plan worked and they'll look to win another title in June. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:07 pm
  • Pau Gasol says he could be done with Lakers
    Pau Gasol admitted his time with the Lakers could be over during his exit interview on Thursday.

    Advice: "I'll be in charge of my future and my destiny," Gasol said. "This could be my last day [with the Lakers], maybe." To be clear, this isn't really a big story or anything. There will be endless rumors about the Lakers considering their popularity and how they had the worst season of their history. Gasol will be an unrestricted free agent this summer after turning in a solid 2013-14 season based on statistical output. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young could play small forward
    Thaddeus Young could play small forward next season, according to coach Brett Brown.

    Advice: It would make a lot of sense. The Sixers were torched on interior defense and they certainly need more size in the paint. Young has plenty of experience at small forward and would have a seamless transition back to his old role. His 2.11 steals per game ranked third in the NBA and he is the first forward to average over 2.0 per game in a season since 2007-08. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:58 pm
  • Melo: 'I want to come back' to Knicks
    Carmelo Anthony said on Thursday that he wants to return to the Knicks, but added that he also wants to win next year.

    Advice: "I want to come back. I also want to win," he said. Whether Melo stays with the Knicks will be a hot topic from now until a decision is made, and while the addition of Phil Jackson gives them some hope, he's also excited to become a free agent. He will likely opt out in July and then start testing the market. Yes, the 'Summer of Melo' is approaching quickly. Melo said on Thursday he doesn't care about the money and just wants to win, while the Knicks can offer him more than any other team - five years, $129 million. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay played just 16 minutes on Wednesday
    Rudy Gay played 16 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring six points with six boards, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: It was a bit of a surprise to even see him in the lineup after missing Sunday's game due to a back injury. Gay had a tremendous turnaround with the Kings after putting up some horrible efficiency with the Raptors earlier this year. The Kings got him more buckets in transition and he was much better off screens, so he could keep it up in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • Dwayne Wade scores 16 in meaningless loss
    Dwyane Wade hit 6-of-14 shots for 16 points, two rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: His owners probably couldn't care less that he showed up for the final two games of the season, as he was simply a headache to own all year. And if you owned Wade this season, chances are you won't be touching him next year. And we're right there with you. Toney Douglas and Ray Allen were the only other Heat players to score in double figures, as LeBron James, Chris Bosh and some others took the night off to rest. The Heat will play the Bobcats in Round 1, and will have to find an answer for Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson if they're going to breeze into Round 2. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Trey Burke scores career-high 32 points in W
    Trey Burke scored a career-high 32 points against the Wolves during a 136-130 win on Wednesday, adding seven boards, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers on 10-of-21 from the field.

    Advice: He was the favorite to win Rookie of the Year out of the gate, but failing to score consistently really hurt his production. Burke needs to get more confidence around the rim and stop settling for jumpers. If he can do that and maybe work on his defense, he could be a starter for a while despite being just 6'1". Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:57 pm
  • Thaddeus Young drops 20 & 9 in win over Heat
    Thaddeus Young had 20 points, nine rebounds and two more steals in Wednesday's season finale win over the Heat.

    Advice: The Sixers somehow beat the Heat twice this season, although it's not fair to call the Miami team that took the court tonight the Heat. Henry Sims, MCW, James Anderson, Brandon Davies and Caspar Ware all scored in double figures in the meaningless game. Young had a great season and his steals and threes, along with his strong offense and rebounding, were pleasant surprises this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:56 pm
  • Michael Beasley (ankle) out for game
    Michael Beasley sprained his right ankle and will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: It's too bad because he was getting some run tonight, finishing with eight points, one board, two blocks and one turnover. Beasley's minutes figure to drop back down in the playoffs, but the team got a heck of a lot more than they bargained for from him this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:59 pm
  • Roy Hibbert starts, more of the same in win
    Roy Hibbert started on a night when most other playoff regulars were sitting throughout the league, but looked about the same as he has since the All-Star break, hitting 1-of-7 shots for four points, seven rebounds and a block.

    Advice: If the goal was to improve Hibbert's confidence, or let him torch a bunch of scrubs, it didn't work. He played just 17 minutes, but it's hard to imagine a 1-of-7 shooting night doing anything for his psyche. And he's going to have to deal with Pero Antic in Round 1 of the playoffs, who will do his best to linger outside and keep Hibbert out of the paint. This may not end well. Rasual Butler and Chris Copeland led the Pacers with 19 points a piece, but you probably won't hear there name in these parts again this year. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:25 pm
  • Rudy Gay, Isaiah Thomas will play on Wed.
    Rudy Gay (back) and Isaiah Thomas (quad) will play on Wednesday night.

    Advice: This is a bit of a surprise and Gay's back must be feeling good. He missed Sunday's game and should be busy tonight with DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) out. Derrick Williams could still get some run at power forward tonight and is a possible fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:05 pm
  • Dwyane Wade in starting lineup vs. Philly
    Dwyane Wade will start next to Toney Douglas, James Jones, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem on Wednesday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Wade is expected to see a nominal amount of minutes, but it's still a great sign for the Heat to even see him suit up. He had to play through injuries last postseason and chances are he will have to again. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:17 pm
  • Enes Kanter out with sore knee
    Enes Kanter will miss Wednesday's finale with a sore knee.

    Advice: Here's a late benching we didn't see coming, and of course, news broke right at 7 p.m., making it nearly impossible to get him replaced in lineups. Kanter had a nice season, but it would have been a lot better had he not been stuck on the bench behind the likes of Marvin Williams. Next season should be a different story. Erik Murphy is available for the Jazz tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:02 pm
  • Dwyane Wade expected to play Wednesday
    Dwyane Wade is expected to play "nominal minutes" in Miami's final game of the regular season on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wade logged 23 minutes in his return on Saturday, then followed that up with an 18-minute game on Monday, and he's not likely to get much more vs. the 76ers. The good news for Miami is that he doesn't seem to have had any setbacks with his hamstring or knee since returning, while slowly improving his conditioning in the lead-up to the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:29 am
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) out again vs. Cavs
    Shaun Livingston (toe) will sit out Wednesday's road game in Cleveland.

    Advice: This marks Livingston's fifth straight DNP and the Nets can only hope that he's ready for the first round of the playoffs, as he's been an invaluable part of their backcourt rotation all season long. Marcus Thornton and Alan Anderson will take on more minutes and responsibilities in his continued absence. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Redick to be held out Wednesday
    J.J. Redick had 18 points and four 3-pointers in just 17 minutes, and will take the night off on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jamal Crawford and Darren Collison should pick up his slack, but they could probably use some rest as well. It's probably best to avoid the Clippers' shooting guards in fantasy on Wednesday. Collison had 10 points in 24 minutes on Tuesday, while Crawford hit 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points in 31 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:49 pm
  • Kenneth Faried with 21 & 6 in loss
    Kenneth Faried had 21 points and six rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: The Nuggets have nothing to play for, but Faried is hot and may want to go out on a high note against the Warriors on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
  • Redick, other Clips starters all in Tuesday
    J.J. Redick will start along with the other Clippers regulars on Tuesday, but Doc Rivers says he won't play on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Clippers want to win out and hope the Clippers lose again to get the No. 2 seed, but it's still a long shot. It sounds like all systems go for the Clippers tonight, so play them as you normally would. All bets are off for Wednesday, though. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:04 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) has torn labrum
    Carmelo Anthony has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, but he will not require surgery.

    Advice: Melo will be re-evaluated in one month and it's very interesting that an MRI revealed the tear only after he'd played in a number of games to help the Knicks' slim chances of making the playoffs. While his toughness is commendable, the Knicks' medical staff and management have questions to answer about letting their star risk aggravating a serious injury. Carmelo is expected to enter free agency via his early-termination option, and once the playoffs end he'll be the focus of this summer's FA frenzy. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:44 pm
  • Roy Hibbert will play first half on Wednesday
    Roy Hibbert will play vs. the Magic on Wednesday but he may sit out the second half.

    Advice: The Pacers may simply to trying to get Hibbert some traction before the playoffs. He's been dreadful over the past five games with a True Shooting percentage of just 29.2 percent, and a -12.6 net rating per 100 possessions. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:21 am
  • Woodson: Melo 'probably won't play' Tuesday
    Mike Woodson said on Tuesday morning that Carmelo Anthony "probably won't" play against the Nets, and that he will likely shut him down for Wednesday, as well.

    Advice: TNT is getting a dog of a game, as Amare Stoudemire is a game-time decision, while the Nets will be without Shaun Livingston, Mirza Teletovic and Alan Anderson, and also list Deron Williams, Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson as game-time calls. It would take a small miracle to see Melo in uniform at this point, as he deals with a lost season, a sore shoulder and pending free agency. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:15 am
  • Shaun Livingston ruled out for Tuesday
    Shaun Livingston will not play again on Tuesday, as he continues to deal with an injured big toe.

    Advice: Livingston has now missed four straight games, but as long as the toe's not broken, you have to think he'll be ready for the playoffs. Marcus Thornton should once again see big minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround
    Carmelo Anthony missed shootaround on Tuesday in order to have his right shoulder re-examined.

    Advice: He's listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Nets on TNT, but it would be fairly surprising to see him play. J.R. Smith might take 50 shots tonight, while it's possible Melo has played his last game for the New York Knicks. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon Hayward scores 21 points in loss
    Gordon Hayward scored 21 points with six boards, four assists and one 3-pointer against the Lakers during Monday's 119-104 loss.

    Advice: The Jazz were able to score the ball a bit, but their defense continues to hurt them. They will finish this season with the worst record in the Western Conference and have a decision to make on free-agent Hayward. His 41.3 percent from the field is a weakness, but it's hard to be too tough on him considering the lack of help around him on the perimeter. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:48 pm
  • Enes Kanter goes for 19 and 12 in loss
    Enes Kanter made 8-of-12 from the field for 19 points vs. the Lakers on Monday to go with 12 boards, two assists, one block and one steal in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He's been great on the glass with double-digit boards in each of his last five games -- all losses. During that span, Kanter averaged 15.8 points, 14.0 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.4 steals on 49.2 percent from the field. The blocks have also been a nice surprise since he's at just 0.5 per game on the season, so his fantasy owners have to be pleased with his finish. Rotoworld.com
  • Michael Beasley scores 18 points off bench
    Michael Beasley scored 18 points in Monday's blowout 114-93 loss to the Wizards, adding five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: The Heat sat Chris Bosh and LeBron James tonight to allow Beasley to put up a nice line in his home town. He'll likely be looking at another chance on Wednesday vs. the Sixers with the Heat locked into the two spot in the Eastern Conference. Considering how he likes to dominate the ball, Beasley could be looking at a big night should Miami sit their guys out again. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:33 pm
  • Dwyane Wade plays 18 minutes, scores nine
    Dwyane Wade started at small forward on Monday vs. the Wizards, scoring nine points with three assists and two steals in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He probably would have been closer to 23-27 minutes tonight, but the Heat were blown out 114-93. With tonight's loss, Miami is now locked in as the two seed, which increases the probability Wade sits on Wednesday night. His fantasy owners can probably make a proactive cut at this point.

    The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic and Nemanja Nedovic on Monday.

    Advice: Even with Andrew Bogut at less than 100 percent, Kuzmic is unlikely to play much with the Warriors. He has no fantasy value and had a quiet rookie season. Rotoworld.com
  • Dwyane Wade will start vs. Wizards on Monday
    Dwyane Wade will start against the Wizards on Monday night.

    Advice: He's expected to have a minutes restriction tonight, but he should still have a lot of responsibilities with LeBron James and Chris Bosh sitting out. Wade played 23 minutes on Saturday and was still able to score 24 points, so his fantasy owners should throw him out there in their lineups tonight. Although, he's almost a lock to rest on Wednesday.

  • Darrell Arthur traveling for Tuesday night
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is traveling for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers and is expected to play.

    Advice: He suffered a knee injury on Saturday and has really struggled to stay healthy. Arthur's minutes will likely be capped around 20, so he's not a strong start on a two-game night. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley likely to start at SF on Mon.
    Michael Beasley is likely to start at SF on Monday with LeBron James (rest) doubtful to play.

    Advice: Beasley has played exactly one minute in Miami's past five games, but there's a good chance he'll get aired out vs. the Wizards. In two previous starts this season, Beasley averaged 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27 minutes per contest. He's a D.C. native, adding further intrigue to his potential for a big game tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) may play vs. Wizards
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) made it through Saturday's game unscathed, clearing the way for him to play again on Monday.

    Advice: "He probably felt like he should have been cleared a week ago, but we wanted to be very patient with him," said coach Erik Spoelstra. Wade looked terrific in 23 minutes of action in his return and the Heat may bump up his playing time to ensure that he's ready for the postseason, but he's always a DNP risk so owners should confirm his status before tip-off. In an ironic twist, Wade has better odds of playing than fellow stars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, both of whom could use some rest. Rotoworld.com
