  • 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.

  • Kevin Martin ends season on a high note
    Kevin Martin scored a season-high 36 points during a 136-130 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He made 12-of-24 from the field and had a big improvement from his 8.0 points per game in his previous two games. Martin missed six games before this stretch due to a foot injury and he's said he's fought some plantar fasciitis this season and the offseason should help him. He'll be considered as an injury risk heading into next season based on his injury-plagued career.

  • Tyreke Evans does it again in season finale
    Tyreke Evans finished the season on a very high note, going for 25 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, a block and a 3-pointer in a meaningless win over the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans has a sore knee that left him iffy for Monday's game, and all he did in that one was rack up 41 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. It's probably too little, too late for fantasy owners, but if you used him in daily money leagues over these last two games, he certainly helped you out. Austin Rivers had 18 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two 3-pointers, Anthony Morrow had 15, and Alexis Ajinca added 11 points in the win.

  • Durant scores 42, OKC clinch No. 2 see w/ win
    Kevin Durant hit 14-of-30 shots and a 3-pointer for 42 points, four rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer as the Thunder pulled out a late win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder trailed for much of the fourth quarter but Durant had a big dunk inside of 20 seconds to give OKC the lead. Serge Ibaka had 10 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, while Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson also played well in the tough win. The Thunder locked up the No. 2 seed and will play the winner of the Dallas-Memphis overtime game in Round 1 of the playoffs.
    Today, 7:43 pm
  • Klay Thompson is starting on Wednesday
    Klay Thompson, Steve Blake, Harrison Barnes, Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong are starting vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Klay could have sat out, but the Warriors just need bodies tonight. His minutes could be limited so he's still bit of a gamble in fantasy leagues.
  • 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.
    Today, 6:59 pm
  • Harkless gets 38 minutes, Dipo/Tobias don't
    Moe Harkless got 38 minutes and had 14 points, five rebounds, two steals and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

    Advice: Tobias Harris played just 10 minutes and had six points and one rebound, while Victor Oladipo played just 17 minutes and scored four points. We thought they'd give Oladipo more run in the final game of his rookie season, but the Magic were allocating minutes as if they were resting guys for the playoffs. Which couldn't be further from reality.
  • 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.
    Today, 6:05 pm
  • Cisco Garcia will not play on Wednesday
    Francisco Garcia will not play vs. the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Rockets are short on players tonight and we may get to see some serious run out of Troy Daniels and Omri Casspi. Garcia's DNP will likely be more precautionary than anything.
    Today, 5:08 pm
  • Josh Smith not in the starting lineup Wed.
    Josh Smith is not in the starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: Presumably, he's not going to play tonight and we'll have an update hopefully in the next few minutes. Kyle Singler will get another start at small forward and gets the fun task of guarding Kevin Durant.
    Today, 4:48 pm
  • Lamar Odom signs with the Knicks
    Knicks sign F Lamar Odom.

    Advice: Leave it to the Knicks to sign Odom on the last day of the season, but there is a team option for next year. Odom is from New York, but the vast majority of his career came in Los Angeles. He'll have his work cut out for him to get minutes next season. Odom will make $8,500 for the one game.
    Today, 4:20 pm
    Not Active
  • Alan Anderson expected to play Wed.
    Alan Anderson is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had an ab injury over the weekend, but coach Jason Kidd said Anderson will play "very little." With Paul Pierce out, expect Marcus Thornton to get a lot of shots.
    Today, 3:46 pm
  • Korver starting, starters to see fewer mins.
    Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott and Pero Antic will start against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The starters will likely have some limited minutes tonight, so fantasy owners might want to watch out for guys like Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Mike Scott should still be solid and could have a nice line.
    Today, 3:42 pm
  • Anthony Bennett is available to play
    Anthony Bennett (knee) is available to play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: His rookie season has been a disaster, but at least he'll get one more chance to show what he can do. His fitness will likely be a problem for much of his career and the deck is stacked against him to have a breakout year.
    Today, 3:34 pm
  • Carrick Felix is available to play
    Carrick Felix is available to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out since January due to a stress fracture in his knee and this is a surprise. Felix likes to get his buckets in transition and had a decent offseason, but he has a lot of growing to do. He's no lock to play tonight.
    Today, 3:32 pm
    W, 114-85 * vs Bkn
  • Kent Bazemore has surgery on Wednesday
    Kent Bazemore underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair the torn peroneus longus tendon in his right foot.

    Advice: He's expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the 2014-15 opener. It's unclear what his offseason plan is yet, but Bazemore was electric at Las Vegas Summer League last offseason and could wind up there again. His fantasy value figures to take a hit on a team with a full complement of players.
    Today, 12:10 pm
  • Draymond Green likely out vs. Nuggets
    Draymond Green is expected to sit out Wednesday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: Green is coming off a massive game on Monday and with nothing at stake on Wednesday the Warriors will give him some rest. His health and stamina will be crucial for their playoff hopes, since Andrew Bogut's absence with a broken rib means we'll see plenty of small frontcourts with Green alongside David Lee.
  • Klay Thompson likely out on Wednesday
    Klay Thompson is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season finale.

    Advice: He's missed one game all season and deserves some rest, having averaged 18.5 points, 2.8 threes, 3.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists to help Golden State secure the sixth seed in the competitive West.
  • Andre Iguodala (rest) won't play Wednesday
    Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: Iguodala recently dealt with a knee injury and his minutes have been monitored in recent weeks, so he was a top candidate for a precautionary day of rest. He'll be ready to go for the postseason.
    Today, 11:00 am
  • Chandler Parsons out Wednesday for rest
    Chandler Parsons will rest during Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Parsons recently battled minor hip and wrist injuries but he'll have enough time to recover before the start of the playoffs. Guys like Francisco Garcia and Omri Casspi will take on bigger roles with Parsons and James Harden (rest) both out on Wednesday.
  • James Harden, Chandler Parsons out Wednesday
    James Harden and Chandler Parsons will both be rested for the Rockets' season finale.

    Advice: The Rockets own the tie-breaker over the Blazers so Houston can't drop down the seeding, which makes it perfectly reasonable for Harden (ankle) and Parsons (wrist) to get some rest. Neither guy is in danger of missing Game 1 of their first-round series vs. Portland.
    Today, 10:38 am
  • Joe Johnson (calf) reportedly out Wednesday
    Joe Johnson's sore calf will reportedly sideline him on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played through the injury in Tuesday's loss and it doesn't sound very serious, but the Nets will err on the side of caution with the playoffs right around the corner. It sounds as though the Nets will have Alan Anderson (abdomen) back in action to fill the gaps at SG, along with Marcus Thornton and Marquis Teague.
    Today, 9:38 am
  • LeBron James, Chris Bosh out Wednesday
    LeBron James and Chris Bosh will both be rested for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: There's no word yet on Dwyane Wade's availability, but Greg Oden (illness, back) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Miami's final game of the regular season. The Heat will face either the Bobcats or the Wizards in the first round of the playoffs.
    Today, 7:53 am
  • Anthony Bennett (knee) could return Wed.
    Anthony Bennett (strained left patellar tendon) went through Tuesday's contact practice and may be available to play on Wednesday.

    Advice: It would be a token victory for the Cavs if Bennett could suit up, but nothing can dilute the misery of his rookie season. The No. 1 overall pick has appeared in 51 games, averaging 4.1 points on 35.2 percent shooting, with exactly as many turnovers (46) as combined assists (17), steals (21) and blocks (eight). There is little doubt that he'll play for the Cavs' Summer League team.
    Today, 7:49 am
  • Mirza Teletovic out Wed. after birth of twins
    Mirza Teletovic will not play on Wednesday to be with his wife and newborn twins.

    Advice: While Teletovic and his wife celebrate, the Nets gear up for a game vs. the Cavaliers that could decide their playoff seeding. If the Nets lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, Washington will take over the No. 5 seed by virtue of a tie-breaker.
  • Wilson Chandler scores seven on Tuesday
    Wilson Chandler played through his groin injury on Tuesday and had seven points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting.

    Advice: If he's not 100 percent, it's easy to see him sitting out in Wednesday's finale, and Evan Fournier (9 points on 3-of-10 shooting) could step up if Chandler is out.
    Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Quincy Miller scores 11 in loss
    Quincy Miller had 11 points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

    Advice: The Nuggets have nothing to play for and there's no reason Miller won't see heavy minutes and another start in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
  • Joe Johnson scores 12 despite sore calf
    Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.

    Advice: The Nets could fall to the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, so we'll have to see if Jason Kidd goes after seeding or rest for his guys tomorrow. Our guess is the old guys will get a rest and the Nets will have the No. 6 seed, but it's just a guess.
    Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Joe Johnson (calf) will play vs. Knicks
    Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.

    Advice: Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale.
    Yesterday, 3:32 pm
  • Joe Johnson a game-time decison
    Joe Johnson (calf) is a game-time decision for Tuesday.

    Advice: He could be out in order to rest for the playoffs and it looks like Marcus Thornton is going to see a lot of minutes tonight.
    Yesterday, 7:55 am
  • Teletovic, Livingston, Anderson all out
    Mirza Teletovic will miss Tuesday's game against the Knicks for personal reasons.

    Advice: Alan Anderson and Shaun Livingston are also out, while Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are all listed as game-time decisions. Carmelo Anthony is not expected to play for the Knicks, and this game is setting up to be a bit of a no-name circus. Marcus Thornton, Marquis Teague and Mason Plumlee could all have big games tonight.
    Yesterday, 7:48 am
  • Alan Anderson ruled out for Tuesday
    Alan Anderson will miss another game on Tuesday due to his abdominal injury.

    Advice: He has now missed three in a row, but we're still guessing he'll be ready to go when the playoffs start.
    Yesterday, 7:39 am
  • Francisco Garcia returned to action on Monday April 14.
    Yesterday, 1:21 am
  • Thompson scores 20 points on Monday
    Klay Thompson hit just 7-of-20 shots (2-of-12 3PTs) for 20 points, five rebounds and one block in Monday's win over the Wolves.

    Advice: Thompson doesn't miss games and it's possible the Warriors might want to let him get his groove back on Wednesday, but it's sitting time for the Dubs' main cogs and we're putting him on the injury report until we know he will play.
  • Draymond goes for 20 & 12 with big line
    Draymond Green scored 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including four threes) with 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks in Monday's win over the Wolves.

    Advice: Green was everywhere and though the Warriors are talking about resting guys on Wednesday, he will probably be the last core player to get time off. He should be owned in all formats unless he's declared out between now and then.
  • Tyreke explodes for 41-9-8 in win over OKC
    Tyreke Evans (knee) played and scored a career-high 41 points on 14-of-26 shooting (1-of-7 3PTs, 12-of-16 FTs) with nine rebounds, eight assists and three steals in the Pelicans' 101-89 win over the Thunder.

    Advice: Aside from Russell Westbrook's absence the Thunder wanted this win, too, and along with the fact that the Pelicans were playing a bunch of journeyman and second round draft picks this is relatively stunning. It's not surprising, though, especially with Monty Williams being forced to provide Evans with the shooters he needs on the wings to make this type of line possible. Evans has returned top 45-95 value over the last 15 games, with a nasty 3.5 turnovers per game mark holding him down.
    Monday, 8:47 pm
  • Chandler Parsons scores 21 points in return
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing 40 minutes for 21 points, seven boards, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had a couple minor injuries over the weekend and the Rockets decided to hold him out of the lineup. Parsons has been a minutes monster with 37.6 per game this season, which ranks seventh in the NBA. The Rockets have nothing left to play for, so Parsons' status for Wednesday's finale against the Pelicans will be up in the air.
  • Francisco Garcia scores two in return
    Francisco Garcia (back) played 14 minutes against the Spurs on Monday with two points and three boards.

    Advice: He missed Saturday's game due to a back injury and was a game-time call tonight. Garcia won't have much opportunity while Chandler Parsons and James Harden are active.
    Monday, 8:18 pm
  • 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.
    Monday, 6:33 pm
  • Iguodala out on Monday against the Wolves
    Andre Iguodala will not play on Monday against the Wolves.

    Advice: Iguodala has been in and out of the lineup throughout the stretch run so this is no surprise. Andrew Bogut is out, too, so look for Marreese Speights and Draymond Green to get a bunch of minutes. Green is a strong spot play tonight and Speights is a risk-reward play, while Harrison Barnes is much too risky to use unless the team is sitting a bunch of their scorers.
    Monday, 5:58 pm
  • Kent Bazemore will have surgery on Wednesday
    Kent Bazemore will have surgery on his torn tendon in his right foot in Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a torn peroneus longus tendon and was ruled out for the season last week. Bazemore's role with the Lakers is unclear, but he's unlikely to be a key part of the rotation once the team is back to full strength. He's a lot of fun to watch, but his careless style will likely hurt his allotment of playing time.
    Monday, 5:32 pm
  • Tyreke Evans will start vs. OKC
    Tyreke Evans will start vs. the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: This has been a mess today and it sounds like Evans will give it a go. Although, he was expected to play on Saturday and did not, so he's still a risky player to use even though he's listed as the starter.
    Monday, 4:59 pm
  • Francisco Garcia says he's playing on Monday
    Francisco Garcia said he will play against the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: The Rockets will be close to full strength while the Spurs will not. Garcia won't have much of a chance to shine with Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) good to go. He's not a fantasy option.
    Monday, 4:01 pm
  • Chandler Parsons 'good to go'
    It appears that Chandler Parsons will play on Monday.

    Advice: He missed his last game with a hip and wrist injury, but looks "good to go" after his pre-game warmups.
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) unlikely to play vs. OKC
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is not expected to play against the Thunder on Monday night.

    Advice: He was on the active roster for Monday, but the team kept him on the bench. Evans suffered a bone bruise on Friday and he's likely out for the year. His ankle has been the main issue all season and attacking the basket so frequently certainly puts him at risk. Anthony Morrow will start in his place and is a solid option in standard leagues.
    Monday, 3:46 pm
  • Francisco Garcia true GTD on Monday
    Francisco Garcia will be a true game-time decision on Monday due to a back injury.

    Advice: He's too risky to use in any fantasy leagues right now, but could end up having some decent silly-season production if he's able to go tonight.
    Monday, 3:28 pm
  • Chandler Parsons is a game-time call vs. SA
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) is a "true" game-time decision to face the Spurs on Monday, according to coach Kevin McHale.

    Advice: He went through shootaround today and said he'll give it a go. The Rockets have a lot to play for because they're just 0.5 games ahead of Portland and the better record between the two will hold home-court advantage against the other. Omri Casspi would start should Parsons sit out.
  • LeBron James and Chris Bosh won't play Monday
    LeBron James and Chris Bosh will not play against the Wizards due to rest.

    Advice: He could be looking at another rest day in the finale on Wednesday. James continues to be almost indestructible, but he's played through a handful of injuries this season and also sat due to back, groin and nose issues. He likely won't be named MVP this season despite putting up some gaudy efficiency numbers. Michael Beasley is expected to get the start.
    Monday, 2:37 pm
  • Wilson Chandler traveling, expected to play
    Wilson Chandler is traveling with the team and is expected to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a surprise to see him in the lineup on Saturday, but he did leave the game with another injury and did not return. Chandler is likely looking at a game-time call and we probably won't know much until Tuesday night. There are only two games on Tuesday, so owners in daily leagues certainly should gamble on Chandler. Evan Fournier takes a hit.
  • 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.
    Monday, 9:25 am
  • LeBron James, Chris Bosh likely to be rested
    Updating previous reports, LeBron James and Chris Bosh are both likely to be rested for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: This comes as no surprise given Miami's dwindling odds of earning the East's top seed, and the need to keep LBJ and Bosh in prime condition for a long playoff march. At the moment it seems as though Mario Chalmers and Dwyane Wade will both be active, leaving a starting lineup of Chalmers, Wade, Michael Beasley, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem.
    Monday, 9:22 am
  • Francisco Garcia (back) may return Monday
    Francisco Garcia (back) went through Monday's shootaround and he may return to action vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Garcia is averaging 24 minutes per game in March but his role fluctuates from night to night, and he doesn't get enough statistics to be worth a roster spot in average fantasy leagues.
    Monday, 9:04 am
  • Chandler Parsons (hip) aims to play vs. Spurs
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) participated in Monday's shootaround and said he'll "give it a go" despite still being sore.

    Advice: All signs point to Parsons being availabile vs. the Spurs, and the Rockets have plenty of incentive to deploy him since they're just half a game ahead of the fifth-seed Blazers. Check back closer to tip-off for final confirmation.
  • Hawks rest Kyle Korver, start Lou Williams
    The Hawks will rest Kyle Korver on Monday with Lou Williams starting at SG in his place.

    Advice: Korver is averaging 35 minutes per game in April but the Hawks are now gearing up for the playoffs and it makes sense to give their veterans some rest in a game with nothing at stake. Korver is shooting just 38.3 percent in the Hawks' past seven games so hopefully the rest will get him back on track.
    Monday, 8:47 am
  • LeBron James may rest over final two games
    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra "is expected to shift some primary rotation players into rest mode" for Miami's final two games, according to ESPN's Michael Wallace.

    Advice: Miami's odds of earning the East's top seed have been diminished by recent events, as the Pacers can lock up home court advantage with a win vs. Orlando on Wednesday or a Heat loss. LeBron James and Chris Bosh are the most obvious targets to get some rest, whereas Dwyane Wade (hamstring) is eager to keep playing and find his rhythm. LeBron said that even his teammates are suggesting that he "may need to get a couple of games [off]," so owners should be alert for DNP-CDs.
    Monday, 7:33 am
  • Kevin Martin may have had plantar fasciitis
    Kevin Martin thinks that "a touch of plantar fasciitis" caused the sore right foot that sidelined him five games before his return on Sunday.

    Advice: Martin played poorly with two points in 18 minutes on Sunday, and with nothing to play for the Wolves may opt to rest him in one or both of their final games. At the very least, fantasy owners should keep a close eye on the Wolves' injury report.
    Monday, 7:02 am
  • Draymond Green quiet in return to GSW bench
    With David Lee back in the starting lineup on Sunday, Draymond Green shifted to a reserve role and scored three points in 22 minutes of action.

    Advice: He hit one 3-pointer with four rebounds, two assists and one steal. Green has proven to be a versatile option in both real life and fantasy leagues, but his value is crippled with Lee healthy and starting at PF.
  • Andre Iguodala plays well in 37 minutes Sun.
    Andre Iguodala returned to action on Sunday after sitting out one game as a precaution, and he notched 15 points, five rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Iguodala looked sharp with nine of the Warriors' first 16 points before cooling off, and he added one 3-pointer and a steal for good measure. A reduced role offensively has led to Iguodala's lowest scoring (9.2 points per game) since his rookie season, but his judicious shot selection has also yielded his best FG percentage (47.5 percent) since the 2005-06 season with Philly.
    Sunday, 9:09 pm
  • Kevin Martin (heel) shoots 0-of-8 in return
    Kevin Martin struggled in his return from a heel injury on Sunday, missing all eight of his field goals to score two points with one rebound in a loss vs. the Kings.

    Advice: The Wolves have won four of their past seven games despite myriad injuries, but their 40-40 record puts them six full games out of the playoff picture. Martin obviously wasn't his usual efficient self, and he only got to the free throw line two times, so owners should continue to monitor his status for the Wolves' final two games.
    Sunday, 8:42 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (rest) back in action vs. POR
    Andre Iguodala (rest) will be in the Warriors' starting lineup on Sunday.

    Advice: He was rested for Friday's game as a precaution during the Warriors' back-to-back set, but there never seemed to be any underlying injury or cause for real concern. His return sends Harrison Barnes back to the bench.
    Sunday, 5:56 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic gets hot from deep vs. Magic
    Nets PF Mirza Teletovic made 7-of-12 field goals with four 3-pointers on Sunday, while grabbing six rebounds and blocking one shot in 29 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Teletovic is shooting nearly 39 percent from downtown on the season and he's picked up the pace in April (42.9 percent), which gives Brooklyn some much-welcomed firepower off the bench. His perimeter shooting makes him an intriguing fantasy player, and we'll keep an eye on him this summer with the Nets' roster likely to see plenty of changes.
    Sunday, 5:33 pm
  • Kevin Martin (heel) back in action Sunday
    Kevin Martin (heel) will start Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Martin had sharp pain in his foot last week and it's not entirely clear what the issue was, but he feels well enough to suit up for the Wolves' third-to-last game. His return should send Corey Brewer to SF and rookie Robbie Hummel to the bench.
    Sunday, 5:04 pm
  • Rudy Gay (back) out again on Sunday vs. MIN
    Rudy Gay's sore back will sideline him for Sunday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Gay returned to action on Saturday, scoring 16 points in 34 minutes, but he may have aggravated his injury in the process. Derrick Williams will fill in at SF in his absence, and it's unclear if Gay will attempt to return for Wednesday's season finale.
    Sunday, 4:23 pm
  • Kevin Durant scores 38 points in loss to Indy
    Kevin Durant scored 38 points vs. the Pacers on Sunday with four boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

    Advice: He shot 2-of-11 from beyond the arc today and that's an issue he'll have to work on heading into the playoffs. Durant shot just 25.6 percent from downtown in his previous six April games from deep, averaging 28.5 points, 7.2 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.7 triples in that stretch. He shot 43.8 percent from deep in March and it shouldn't take long for him to turn it around.
    Sunday, 12:48 pm
  • Josh Smith (knee) will not play on Sunday
    Josh Smith (knee) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: With the Pistons firmly out of the playoff picture, there's no reason for Smith to rush back from his injury and it's very likely Smith could be a shutdown candidate. Rodney Stuckey will draw the start, and he makes for a decent plug-and-play for those seeking points.
    Sunday, 11:00 am
  • Wilson Chandler scores nine, but leaves game
    Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-7 shots for nine points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday in his return from a groin injury, but left the game and didn't return.

    Advice: Not only did he leave the game, but he also left the bench and went to the locker room, presumably for treatment on his groin. And with nothing left to play for, signs are pointing to Chandler's season being over. Evan Fournier and Randy Foye look like strong plays the rest of the way, if that's the case.
  • Tyreke Evans sits out on Saturday w/ knee
    Tyreke Evans was reportedly available to play on Saturday, but never entered the game.

    Advice: He's nursing a knee injury that caused him to leave Friday's game early. It doesn't sound serious, but with nothing to play for, the Pelicans may be content to keep resting him until the season is over. Stay tuned.

  • LeBron James looks tired in loss to Hawks
    LeBron James hit 10-of-22 shots for 27 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a block and three 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: James played well, but has to be running out of gas and looked pretty tired at times tonight. Whether the Heat rest him at some point over the last two games remains to be seen, as the Heat and Pacers are now tied for the best record in the East.
    Saturday, 6:53 pm
  • Surprise: Wilson Chandler available to play
    Wilson Chandler (groin) is available to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: There has been very little information on Chandler for the past week, so this is a huge surprise. There's been even less detail as how he's looked in practice, so we'd guess he's going to be limited tonight. Unless you're cutting someone with little value, we'd probably to see how Chandler looks tonight before making a move to add him.
  • Tyreke Evans available, Brian Roberts is not
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is available to play against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: It's about time the Pelicans caught a break. Evans went down with a bone bruise on Friday night and did not return. It sounds like he dodged a bullet here and should be in all lineups. Austin Rivers takes a hit here.
    Saturday, 4:40 pm
  • Francisco Garcia out on Saturday night
    Francisco Garcia (back) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: He's dealing with a lower back issues and is hoping to be back on Monday vs. the Spurs. Omri Casspi is getting the start tonight and should see a nice chunk of minutes. Expect to see a lot of Jordan Hamilton, as well.
    Saturday, 4:12 pm
  • Rudy Gay (back) shoots 6-of-18 vs. Clippers
    Rudy Gay (back) started Saturday's game, as expected, and finished with 16 points on 6-of-18 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: He wasn't exactly sharp offensively but he still logged 34 minutes and should be ready to go on Sunday as long as his back doesn't seize up on him.
    Saturday, 3:55 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely to play Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) appears to be available for the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: He suffered a bone bruise on Friday but may try to give it a go vs. the Rockets. If he does play his minutes will likely be limited, so there's plenty of risk for any fantasy owners relying on him for production.
    Saturday, 3:45 pm
  • Chandler Parsons out w/ wrist & hip injuries
    Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) will not play in Saturday's home game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: He scored 27 points on Friday and his absence appears to be more of a precaution than a medical necessity. With Francisco Garcia (back) also out of commission, the Rockets will have to rely on guys like Omri Casspi and Jordan Hamilton for production on the wings.
    Saturday, 3:31 pm
  • Alan Anderson (abdomen) will not play Sunday
    Alan Anderson (sore abdominal muscle) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: He was a late scratch on Friday after the injury bothered him during warm-ups, which left Brooklyn without Anderson, Deron Williams (knee) and Shaun Livingston (toe). The result was the Nets' first loss in their past 16 home games, and they'll try to get back on track with Williams expected to return on Sunday.
    Saturday, 9:55 am
  • LeBron scores 36 as Heat pummel the Pacers
    LeBron James scored 36 points on 11-of-20 shooting (2-of-4 from deep, 12-of-13 from the line) with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in the Heat's 98-86 win over the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: The score wasn't indicative of the strangle-hold LeBron and the Heat had over the Pacers, and Miami takes over control of the No. 1 seed in the East with the win. Mario Chalmers added 13 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a three in the win.
    Friday, 9:40 pm
  • James Harden posts big 33-point line in loss
    James Harden (shin) filled up the stat sheet in a tough 112-110 loss to the Wolves on Friday, scoring 33 points with eight boards, 10 assists, six steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-14 from the field and 15-of-19 from the line in 46 minutes.

    Advice: He had a scary shin injury on Wednesday and obviously 46 minutes tonight puts any concern to bed. Harden is on some kind of tear since the break and he continues to post massive stat lines. Tonight's loss is huge, so expect Harden to play in every game the rest of the way starting with a game on Saturday vs. the Pelicans. It's worth mentioning Harden is scoring 28 points per game since the break on just 17 field goal attempts per, which is kind of absurd.
    Friday, 9:16 pm
  • Chandler Parsons turns in a big line
    Chandler Parsons scored 27 points with seven boards, seven assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He was in a bit of a slump in March with just a field goal percentage of 41.1 percent for 14.0 points per game, but he's rolling again. In his last five, Parsons averaged 20.0 points, 4.4 boards, 5.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.6 triples on 46.6 percent from the field. He's a middle-class man's version of Kawhi Leonard with how his game translates to fantasy so well.
  • Johnson a candidate for rest for the Nets
    Joe Johnson scored nine points on 4-of-15 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in the Nets' 93-88 loss to the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Johnson has been on a roll lately but owners should know that he's a candidate for rest down the stretch. We'll let you know if anything comes through the pipeline regarding his status but for now he can stay in lineups.
    Friday, 8:42 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) goes to the locker room
    Tyreke Evans suffered a bone bruise to his right knee and will not return to Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: The Pelicans cannot catch a break. They already lost Brian Roberts for the game and they're running out of bodies. Jrue Holiday (leg), Anthony Davis (back), Eric Gordon (knee), Ryan Anderson (back) and Jason Smith (knee) are all out for the season. Hopefully Tyreke is fine, but he might be the next guy to be ruled out the rest of the way. Anthony Morrow and Austin Rivers are decent pickups in all leagues right now.
    Friday, 6:40 pm
  • Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O'Neal out Fri.
    Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O'Neal will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Mark Jackson said he was going to monitor Iguodala's minutes in a back-to-back set, so that apparently meant he wasn't going to play him at all. He should be ready to go against the Blazers on Sunday. Harrison Barnes will start and will look to turn around a disappointing sophomore season.
    Friday, 6:32 pm
  • Report: Knicks looking to sign Lamar Odom
    The Knicks are "weighing" whether to sign Lamar Odom before the regular season ends, according to Marc Stein.

    Advice: There has been reported mutual interest since Apr.5 and he could receive a team option on the possible contract. Odom had a really tough year and getting back in the NBA will probably help him get back on track. Obviously, fantasy owners shouldn't look to add him.
    Friday, 4:43 pm

  • James Harden will play on Friday night
    James Harden will play against the Wolves on Friday night.

    Advice: He suffered a shin injury on Wednesday, which looked really bad and he did have to go to the locker room. He's been a top-five player since the All-Star break and has been posting massive stats. Get him in your lineup.
    Friday, 4:18 pm
  • Kevin Martin will not play on Friday
    Kevin Martin will not play against the Rockets on Friday due to his foot injury.

    Advice: He won't get to play against his former team and is likely out for the season. Martin is still fighting pain in his foot and the oft-injured guard should just shut it down. This late injury will likely cause him to slide in fantasy drafts next season, and rightfully so.
    Friday, 4:16 pm
  • Alan Anderson out, Andrei Kirilenko starting
    Alan Anderson will miss Friday's game vs. the Hawks due to a sore abdominal muscle.

    Advice: He was expected to start tonight, but the team will now move Andrei Kirilenko into the first unit. Anderson's injury doesn't sound serious and he's likely just getting some rest. He has little fantasy value, though.
    Friday, 3:49 pm
  • Josh Smith (knee) out again on Friday night
    Josh Smith (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: This will be his third consecutive game out of the lineup and he could miss the rest of the season. Smith's signing over the summer has been a disaster for the Pistons and their scheme hasn't worked at all, especially on defense. Rodney Stuckey will start again.
    Friday, 3:36 pm
  • Rudy Gay (back) will play on Saturday night
    Rudy Gay (back) practiced on Friday and will play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He missed his last two games due to a back injury, so Saturday will be his first game since Sunday. Gay's shooting numbers haven't fizzled out all season with his new team and he should handle the ball a ton with Isaiah Thomas (quad) ruled out. Travis Outlaw can be cut in all leagues.
    Friday, 1:15 pm
  • James Harden battling a bruised shin
    Updating a previous item, James Harden was battling a bruised shin on Wednesday.

    Advice: The injury was originally reported as a knee injury. Obviously a shin bruise is much less of a concern, but it doesn't mean Harden will play full minutes on Friday. The Rockets will be looking to get him to 100 percent ahead of next week's playoffs.
    Friday, 9:13 am
  • DET not tipping their hand on Smith's status
    The Pistons are not tipping their hand when asked if Josh Smith (knee) will be shut down.

    Advice: Smith has already missed two straight games with patella tendinitis in his left knee. With just three games left in another miserable Pistons' season, it's possible he'll just pack it in. We should know more by 7pm ET Friday night, one hour before Detroit plays at Chicago.
    Friday, 9:01 am
  • Kevin Martin, Pekovic are listed as doubtful
    Kevin Martin (foot) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful for Friday's game against the Wolves.

    Advice: We'd be surprised to see either player again this season. This will be Martin's fifth straight game on the sideline as he fights sharp pain in his foot. Look for a starting five of Ricky Rubio, Robbie Hummel, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love and Gorgui Dieng. Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) are out. JJ Barea (back) is questionable.
    Friday, 7:53 am
  • Klay Thompson scores 21 points in 30 minutes
    Klay Thompson made three 3-pointers against the Nuggets during a tough 100-99 loss on Thursday, scoring 21 points with two boards, one assist and two turnovers.

    Advice: He's been hot from deep over his last five, making 3.8 treys per game with 23.4 points 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists and 0.4 steals on 51.8 percent from the field. The Warriors went 3-2 in that span and will certainly be hoping Thompson stays hot against the Lakers in a big game on Friday.
    Thursday, 11:04 pm
  • Andre Iguodala plays 27 minutes vs. Nuggets
    Andre Iguodala played 27 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Thursday with six points, four boards, three assists, two steals and two fouls.

    Advice: Coach Mark Jackson said he will monitor Iguodala's minutes in back-to-back sets, so he could be in the low 20s vs. the Lakers on Friday or there could even be a DNP on the way. Although, the Warriors will probably want to win that game because the Suns are now just one game behind them for the sixth seed.
