  • 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

  • Mirza Teletovic looking good in practice
    Mirza Teletovic (lungs) went through practice on Monday.

    Advice: He is still very unlikely to play on Wednesday, but this is fantastic news. Teletovic has been practicing since Friday and he's cleared to play in games. If he does play, he'll likely take some minutes away from Mason Plumlee or maybe Markel Brown with the Nets tweaking their rotation. 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

  • Kirk Hinrich will not play Monday vs. Bucks
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks in Game 2.

    Advice: Hinrich was also ruled out of Game 1, and although he was thought to be improving, he hasn't made enough progress to get back into action. With Derrick Rose hooping and Aaron Brooks backing him up, Hinrich's availability doesn't seem to matter much anyway. Rotoworld.com

  • Cho: Kidd-Gilchrist 'probably' most improved
    Hornets GM Rich Cho said Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was "probably" the Hornets most-improved player this season.

    Advice: That would be a dramatic understatement. Kidd-Gilchrist finished the season averaging 10.9 points and 7.6 boards, but that alone is not an accurate representation of his value. Tasked with defending the opposition's best perimeter player, MKG is growing into his role as a lockdown defender in this league. Rotoworld.com

  • Gerald Green hoping to return to the Suns
    Gerald Green is hoping to re-sign with the Suns this offseason.

    Advice: "I do want to come back," he said. "I think they do want me back, too ... I just talked to Lon (Babby, president of basketball operations). It was a good conversation so I'm a little positive about that." Green had some ugly public back-and-forths with the Suns toward the end of the year about playing time, so it wouldn't be a surprise if he heads for greener pastures. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:14 am
  • Danny Granger undecided about player option
    Danny Granger is undecided about picking up his player option for next season.

    Advice: Granger will spend the summer working with the Suns training staff in an attempt to get himself healthy, and it's hard to envision Granger earning the $2.1 million he's slated to make if he does indeed opt out. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:12 am
  • Dwight Howard a difference-maker in Game 1
    Dwight Howard was a difference-maker in the Game 1 win over the Mavericks on defense.

    Advice: When Howard was on the floor Saturday night, the Rockets allowed 75.1 points per 100 possessions. When he was off, that number ballooned to 112.2 points per 100 possessions. The good news is Howard felt good out there over his 17 minutes, and his playing time should increase moving forward so long as he stays out of foul trouble. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:57 am
  • Mike Conley plays through pain in Game 1 win
    Mike Conley (foot) admitted that it felt like a golf ball was at the bottom of his shoe in the Game 1 victory over the Blazers.

    Advice: Conley scored 16 points in 24 minutes on 6-of-11 shooting, but he's nowhere near 100 percent healthy. Despite a successful Game 1 effort, we simply can't be expecting the usual Mike Conley as he deal with this injury. Beno Udrih will be a very important player for Memphis in the postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:21 am
  • Beal stays late for extra shooting work
    Bradley Beal stayed late after Washington's Game 1 win to get in extra shooting work.

    Advice: Beal managed to make just 6-of-23 shots, and that prompted the extra session. "Have to," Beal said of the additional work. "Can’t shoot 6 for 23. Just want to get a rhythm. I’ve got to just make sure everything’s feeling good still." Kudos to the Florida product for putting in the work after his team won, a move several players wouldn't have necessarily made. 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
  • Aron Baynes benched, bullied in Game 1 loss
    Aron Baynes suffered during Sunday's road loss vs. the Clippers, finishing with five points, five rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Tiago Splitter (calf) was limited so Baynes played a significant role, but in a short span he was viciously dunked on by Blake Griffin, flipped into a row of photographers by Matt Barnes, and then dunked on again by Griffin. Splitter only logged 10 minutes and Baynes' ability to hold down the paint alongside Tim Duncan may be a key to the series, as he's likely to log 20+ minutes regardless of Splitter's status for Game 2. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:23 pm
  • Clips beat Spurs, Chris Paul scores 32 points
    Chris Paul was unguardable down the stretch of Sunday's Game 1 win vs. the Spurs, finishing with a game-high 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting with three 3-pointers, seven boards, six assists and two steals.

    Advice: CP3 started the postseason with a bang. He led the NBA with 10.2 assists per game this season, played 82 games for the first time in his 10-year career, and looks ready to step up offensively vs. the Spurs' elite defense. Paul knocked down a career-high 139 three-pointers this season and was 3-of-5 beyond the arc on Sunday, abusing every defender the Spurs threw his way. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Matt Bonner (calf) plays only four minutes
    Matt Bonner (calf) committed one foul and grabbed one rebound in four minutes off the Spurs' bench on Sunday.

    Advice: Tiago Splitter's calf injury is a lingering issue and the Spurs will need all of their frontcourt depth vs. the Clippers. Bonner's return health is encouraging and his 3-point shooting could help spread the court and draw L.A.'s big men out of the paint, but he isn't likely to be a big factor. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • 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
  • Mike Conley thrives Sun despite sprained foot
    Mike Conley (sprained right foot) scored 16 points in only 24 minutes of action vs. the Blazers, making 6-of-11 field goals and 4-of-5 free throws with one rebound, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: He's been having trouble walking and was told he'd need 4-6 weeks to fully recover, but he didn't seem limited while using change-of-speed dribbles to befuddle the Blazers' defense. Conley was even wearing a shoe one size bigger on his right foot to allow for extra padding but all signs point to him starting without a minute-limit on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:53 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
  • Mike Conley (foot) will play Game 1 on Sunday
    Mike Conley (foot) will play Game 1 on Sunday against Portland, as expected.

    Advice: Conley was listed as a game-time call, but there was never really any doubt that he'd suit up for Game 1 of the playoffs. Head coach Dave Joerger said he'd play Conley as close to 45 minutes as possible, so he's looking like a quality guy to target in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:37 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) questionable for Game 2
    Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Kirk Hinrich (knee) is improving, but he's unsure about his status for Game 2 against the Bucks on Monday.

    Advice: Tony Snell will pick up most of Hinrich's reserve minutes if he's again unable to go on Monday, but he's not going to see enough floor time to matter in any league. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Conley and Tony Allen will give it a go
    Mike Conley (foot) and Tony Allen (hamstring) will play vs. the Blazers on Sunday according to head coach Dave Joerger, though they are officially listed as game-time decisions.

    Advice: Conley missed the last four games of the regular season, and even though he is still experiencing some discomfort, he is expected to be in the starting lineup tonight. Joerger admitted that there will likely be some rust, but it's possible that Conley could see close to his normal allotment of minutes. We will confirm his status right before tip-off, but it's safe to say that Beno Udrih will be heading back to the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 am
  • Dwight Howard battles foul trouble in win
    Dwight Howard played just 17 minutes due to foul trouble against the Mavs on Saturday with 11 points, five boards, one steal and five blocks.

    Advice: If not for the foul trouble, he would have played more. The Rockets didn't really go to Howard in the post much, but Howard looked healthy with respect to his knee. He should be closer to 30 minutes in Game 2 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:37 pm
  • Dwight Howard expected to play more
    Dwight Howard is expected to play more in the postseason than he did in the regular season.

    Advice: Coach Kevin McHale said the Rockets will play it by ear with Dwight's minutes. Dwight was up to 28 minutes on Apr. 12 and he should get over the 30-minute plateau tonight. There will be less minutes going to Joey Dorsey. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:49 pm
  • Matt Bonner (calf) questionable for Sunday
    Matt Bonner (calf) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: He was well enough to direct a Spurs music video, but he hasn't played since suffering the injury on Apr. 10. The Spurs will give more minutes to Tim Duncan, so Bonner won't be needed as much. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:11 pm
  • Bradley Beal scores 16 points in 48 minutes
    Bradley Beal made 6-of-23 from the field for 16 points against the Raptors during an overtime 93-86 win on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 48 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Randy Wittman went to a Beal pick-and-roll quite a bit in this game, but it wasn't really a productive play for them. He really struggled down the stretch today and that's been a problem for him in his career. On the lighter side, Kyle Lowry fouled Beal for Lowry's sixth foul and Beal waved goodbye to Lowry. Beal might play off the ball a little more should he have another off game like this one. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:22 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
  • Mike Conley (foot) thinks he will play Sunday
    Mike Conley (foot) continues to make progress, and he believes he will hear his name announced in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Conley returned to practice on Friday, and it's clear that the time on the shelf sped up his recovery. He added that his foot is still sore every morning, but he does feel better when he moves around. It sounds like he will be a game-time decision, but we should have an official update after the team's shootaround on Sunday. Beno Udrih will move back to the bench if Conley plays. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:10 am
  • 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
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks, and it is unclear if he will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday.

    Advice: He has reportedly "plateaued" in his rehab, so it looks like he could miss more time. With Hinrich out of commission, Tony Snell will see some minutes in the rotation Saturday. We will update Hinrich's status when we know more. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Conley, Tony Allen practice on Friday
    Mike Conley (foot) and Tony Allen (hamstring) practiced on Friday.

    Advice: Conley expects to play and he'll likely be a game-time decision on Sunday. He has been able to do some pre-game stuff, so keeping him out the last week is probably somewhat precautionary. He'll be a very important piece for the Grizzlies at home considering the struggles of Damian Lillard on defense. Beno Udrih would move to the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:20 am
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) doesn't practice Friday
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) was unable to practice Friday, and his status is uncertain for Game 1 on Saturday against the Bucks.

    Advice: If Hinrich can't go, Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks will split most of his minutes. Hinrich is a solid defender, but he doesn't really bring a lot to the stat sheet, so he's not really a factor in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Teletovic cleared for basketball activities
    Mirza Teletovic (lungs) has been cleared for basketball activities, but he will remain sidelined for Games 1 and 2 of the first round of the playoffs.

    Advice: Teletovic was a full participant during Friday's practice, and while he will for sure spend the first two games of the Nets playoff series against the Hawks on the sidelines, there's a chance he enters the rotation after that. He's been out since January 22, so even if he is able to return, it'll likely be in a very limited capacity. He could potentially take away some minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic when he is able to return to the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Howard's minutes to increase for playoffs
    Dwight Howard's minutes restriction will rise to around 32 minutes per game for Game 1 of the playoffs.

    Advice: Howard should eventually be without a minutes restriction at some point, but he should get the most floor time he's seen since returning from his knee injury during Game 1 against the Mavericks on Saturday. The more minutes Dwight gets, the further Joey Dorsey will fall out of the rotation. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:00 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
  • 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
  • Dwight Howard gets 21 minutes in blowout
    Dwight Howard played just 21 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday with 14 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: Rudy Gobert did block him once, but this was a great game for Dwight tonight. He would have played a lot more, but the Rockets had this game in the bag during the third quarter. He'll get a tough matchup against the Mavs and Tyson Chandler. Dwight only had one game vs. Dallas this year, scoring eight points with seven boards in 18 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:05 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
  • 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
  • Aron Baynes starts, Diaw benched vs. Pelicans
    Aron Baynes will start Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans, shifting Boris Diaw back to the Spurs' bench.

    Advice: The Pelicans have an imposing front line with Omer Asik and Anthony Davis, so it's no surprise to see Baynes resurface as a starter. Tiago Splitter (calf) is still resting but there's a good chance he'll be ready to go for the playoffs, so Baynes' starting job may once again be short-lived. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:35 pm
  • Bradley Beal not playing on Wednesday
    Bradley Beal will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's healthy and is just getting some rest on the second half of a back-to-back set. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter will get a ton of minutes in the starting lineup. Martell Webster should get some playing time, too. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:46 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
  • Dwight Howard expected to play Wednesday
    Dwight Howard is expected to play on Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: This is just a reminder that Dwight will be back after missing Monday. He should get around 28-32 minutes against Rudy Gobert, which should be fun to watch. Howard has played well in his last four, averaging 17.3 points, 11.0 boards and 1.3 blocks. Start him even in a bad matchup unless free throw percentage is really important to you tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:05 am
  • 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
  • Mike Conley (ankle) officially ruled out Weds
    Mike Conley (ankle) will not play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday according to head coach Dave Joerger.

    Advice: This will be his fourth consecutive game on the sidelines, but this should help Conley recover in time for the playoffs. Beno Udrih will draw another start and is worth a look in most leagues, while Nick Calathes and Jordan Adams should be more involved as well. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:19 am
  • Mike Conley (foot) doubtful for Wednesday
    Mike Conley (foot) did not participate in shootaround and isn't expected to play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Conley has missed the last three games, and the Grizzlies obviously want him to be as close to 100 percent as possible for the playoffs. With Conley likely on the sidelines, Beno Udrih will draw another start and will be the primary beneficiary, while Nick Calathes and Jordan Adams could see some extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:41 am
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) out on Weds
    Michael Kidd-Gilcrhist (ankle) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He was never expected to play tonight, so he should have already been dropped everywhere, MKG made great strides this season, and hopefully he continues to work on his shooting this summer. MKG will finish the season with averages of 10.9 points, 7.6 boards 1.4 assists in 28.9 minutes per game. Jeff Taylor will remain in the starting lineup, but he is only worth a look in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:40 am
  • Chris Paul finishes 82 games played in style
    Chris Paul scored 22 points with six 3-pointers, six assists, two steals, one block and one turnover in just 29 minutes of action on Tuesday, playing in his 82nd game of the season.

    Advice: CP3 ramped up his scoring to a season-best 22.6 points per game in March, followed by 20.3 points in April, and he's showing no signs of fatigue despite playing 82 games for the first time in his NBA career. It's worth mentioning that Paul's six 3-pointers tonight were a career-high and they came against a Suns' defense which ranks No. 8 in fewest 3-pointers against. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:31 pm
  • 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
    Tuesday, 4:08 pm
  • Mike Conley (foot) questionable for Wednesday
    Mike Conley (foot) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Conley has spent the last three games on the sidelines, and it's been Beno Udrih in the starting lineup splitting minutes with Nick Calathes. Udrih is capable of scoring in the teens while dishing out a few assists, but with a tough matchup against the Pacers, he'd make for a risky option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:36 pm
  • 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
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) ruled out for Wednesday
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks will split most of Hinrich's minutes, with Rose offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Bonner (calf) ruled out for Wednesday
    Matt Bonner (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: With both Bonner and Tiago Splitter (calf) on the shelf for Wednesday's game, expect Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes to log extended minutes. Baynes makes for an intriguing, albeit risky, daily league prospect. 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.

  • Paul, Clippers head into Tuesday ready to win
    Chris Paul scored 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, nine assists and two steals in the Clippers' 110-103 win over the Nuggets on Monday.

    Advice: Paul is working on an 82-game season and the Clippers can finish with either the two, three or five-seeds. They'll bring out their A-game against the Suns on Tuesday and watch the scoreboard both that night and on Wednesday as the rest of the West playoff teams finish their final games. Blake Griffin added 22 points, nine boards, eight assists, two blocks and an 8-of-9 mark from the line, DeAndre Jordan went for 20 and 21 with one steal and four blocks, and J.J. Redick scored 20 points with three treys in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Conley (foot) remains out for Monday
    Mike Conley (foot) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: So the Grizzlies will have Beno Udrih at point guard to match up with Stephen Curry. Conley has been out for two games before tonight and he might not be at 100 percent heading into the playoffs. Give Beno a look if you need a plug-and-play. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 13, 6:16 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
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is out for Monday
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Monday.

    Advice: He's likely out for the season and Jeff Taylor will continue to start. In his previous 11 starts, Taylor averaged just 6.1 points, 2.9 boards and 0.9 assists. Obviously that's not going to get it done for almost any owner. Gerald Henderson should log significant minutes at small forward tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 13, 2:19 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

  • Kirk Hinrich will not play on Monday vs. Nets
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Monday against the Nets.

    Advice: Hinrich didn't go through shootaround and isn't expected to return until at least Game 1 of the playoffs. It will be the Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks show at point guard for Chicago, and that's the way it should remain regardless of whether or not Hinrich is available. Rotoworld.com

  • Aron Baynes limited to 17 minutes off bench
    Aron Baynes moved to the Spurs' bench vs. Phoenix on Sunday, where he posted four points, two rebounds and one block in 17 minutes.

    Advice: Baynes is a sneaky source of rebounds and percentages as long as he's playing 20-25 minutes -- in the Spurs previous six games he was averaging 12.5 points on 65.9 percent FGs and 94.4 percent FTs, with 6.0 boards, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks. Tiago Splitter (calf) is iffy to play in the Spurs' final game on Wednesday, so owners in deeper leagues may want to give Baynes one more look. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 7:13 pm
  • Gerald Green (back) scores 23 pts in return
    Gerald Green led the Suns with 23 points in a futile effort on Sunday, knocking down 8-of-16 shots with two 3-pointers in 26 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Green obviously wasn't limited by the back spasms that forced him to leave Friday's game, as this marks just the fifth time since Jan. 1 that he's scored 20+ points. He even chipped in four rebounds and two assists tonight -- with Brandon Knight (ankle) out of commission, Green is an intriguing gamble for owners seeking points and 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 7:00 pm
  • Dwight Howard posts 19 & 11 w/ three blocks
    Dwight Howard played 28 minutes during Sunday's win vs. the Pelicans, which he finished with 19 points (7-of-10 FGs, 5-of-11 FTs), 11 rebounds and three blocks.

    Advice: As a reminder, Howard will not play vs. the Hornets on Monday. He has three straight double-doubles despite being on a fairly strict minute-limit, and over his past four games he's averaging 17.3 points on 67.5 percent shooting, 11.0 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks. Considering he missed almost two months with a serious knee injury, this is all fantasy owners could have hoped for. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 6:37 pm
  • Gerald Green (back) will play on Sunday
    Gerald Green (back) will play on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Green was forced to leave Friday's game against the Pelicans due to back spasms, but he will be ready to roll tonight. The Suns will have just 10 players available, so Green could get plenty of minutes off the bench. He will always be a hit-or-miss option, but Green is worth a flier for any owner in need of scoring or 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 2:55 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
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) out Sunday
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will not play Sunday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Look for Jeff Taylor and Gerald Henderson to log extended minutes with MKG sidelined. Taylor is a negligible factor in all fantasy leagues, while Henderson doesn't do much aside from score. Henderson has struggled in his past two outings, making him a risky play in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 12, 12:03 pm
  • Dwight Howard to play Sunday, rest on Monday
    Dwight Howard (knee) will play on Sunday vs. the Pelicans, but he will sit out Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Howard isn't cleared to play in both games of a back-to-back set, so there are no surprises here. Howard belongs in all active lineups Sunday as long as you can deal with his awful free throw shooting, while Terrence Jones, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey will all benefit in his absence vs. the Hornets on Monday.

  • Chris Paul scores 15 with 14 dimes
    Chris Paul handled his business against the Grizzlies during a 94-86 win on Saturday, scoring 15 points with five boards, 14 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: This game probably seals his crown for dimes per game and he's certainly going to win the total dime distinction. Thanks to staying healthy, CP3 has 52 more assists than second place (John Wall). If you drafted him, you probably stole him due to all the knee injuries he had leading up to this season. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not return on Sat
    Kirk Hinrich suffered a hyperextended left knee on Saturday vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

    Advice: He has had some tough luck with his knee in recent weeks, but the good news is that he plans on traveling for Monday's game vs. the Nets. However, with Derrick Rose and Aaron Brooks both healthy, Hinrich won't be making an impact in fantasy leagues any time soon. We will update Hinrich's status when we know more, but he belongs on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Matt Bonner (calf) doubtful for Sunday
    Matt Bonner (calf) is doubtful to play against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: It will be Boris Diaw, Aron Baynes and Jeff Ayres getting most of the big man minutes next to Tim Duncan on Sunday. Diaw offers the most upside while Baynes is also worth a look in standard leagues for the last day of the week. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 3:07 pm
  • Dwight Howard will sit Sunday or Monday
    Dwight Howard said he will rest Sunday or Monday, but doesn't know which one yet.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise and Dwight has yet to play in both games of a back-to-back set since his return to the lineup. On the night he sits, there should be more minutes going to Terrence Jones, Joey Dorsey and Josh Smith. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 11:15 am
  • Green leaves game due to back spasms
    Gerald Green left Friday's game due to back spasms after 12 minutes of action.

    Advice: Green scored five points on 2-of-6 shooting with one three and this kills any appeal he had after his 30-point eruption on Wednesday. If he gets the all-clear going forward, he's to be viewed as a 3-point shooting lottery ticket and that's it. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 11:18 pm
  • Howard double-doubles in loss to SA
    Dwight Howard scored 12 points on 3-of-5 shooting (6-of-9 FTs) with 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 27 minutes on Friday against the Spurs.

    Advice: Howard's minutes are slowly getting ramped up for the playoffs and he's more or less where owners want him to be productivity-wise. He's much better than the deep league asset we called him earlier today, though there is going to be risk of DNPs as we finish the season. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 11:02 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
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) out Friday
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: With no clear return date in sight, MKG belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Jeff Taylor will continue to do almost nothing on the stat sheet as a starter, while Gerald Henderson will log extended minutes and see some increased opportunity on offense. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 10, 9:21 am
  • 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
  • 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
