  • Iman Shumpert to start w/ JR Smith suspended
    With J.R. Smith serving a two-game suspension, Iman Shumpert is expected to start at shooting guard for Monday's Game 1 vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: "I think I’ll get more opportunities just playing more minutes," Shumpert said. "But as far as going in with a different mindset, it’s not like I’m going to transform into J.R. for the team." The Cavs are very short-handed with Smith out two games and Kevin Love (shoulder) done for the playoffs, so in addition to Shump they'll need more production from Tristan Thompson, James Jones, Matthew Dellavedova and possibly Shawn Marion or Mike Miller.

  • Tony Allen plays great, earns boos in Game 1
    Tony Allen drew the ire of Warriors fans by accidentally interrupting a children's dance group during Sunday's Game 1 defeat, which he finished with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Allen was terrific, shooting 6-of-11 from the field in 38 high-energy minutes, but it wasn't enough to avoid a 15-point road loss. Golden State's fans booed Allen for the rest of the game after he meandered onto the court in the middle of the kids' dance routine during a timeout, a moment Draymond Green described as "hilarious." The Grizzlies won't be laughing after the convincing defeat. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes scoreless in Conley's absence
    Nick Calathes started at PG on Sunday but he failed to score in 21 minutes, going 0-of-4 from the field and 0-of-2 at the FT line with one rebound, two assists, three steals and three turnovers.

    Advice: Paging Mike Conley. The Warriors also held Beno Udrih to seven points and one assist in 19 minutes off the bench, while their own MVP point guard pitched in a game-high 22 points. It's a wildly lopsided matchup but Calathes, who played well in the first round, will need to have a short memory with Game 2 looming on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Harrison Barnes doesn't miss a shot on Sunday
    Harrison Barnes did not miss a single shot during Sunday's Game 1 victory over Memphis, scoring 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting (2-of-2 from the stripe), to go with three rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one block over 25 minutes.

    Advice: Barnes is the Warriors' X-factor, and he finished Sunday's win with a plus/minus rating of plus-18. He does a little bit of everything for Golden State, and through the first five games of the playoffs he's compiled averages of 9.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 0.8 three-pointers, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks per game. Those numbers, however, aren't really cutting it for ownership in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Otto Porter double-doubles in 34 minutes
    Otto Porter continued his fantastic postseason run on Sunday, coming away with his first-career playoff double-double with 10 points, 11 rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist through 34 minutes of action.

    Advice: Porter has been a completely different player this postseason, averaging 9.6 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.4 three-pointers and 1.0 steal per game improving upon all of his regular-season averages. He's also averaging a plus/minus rating of plus-11.8, and his gritty defense continues to earn him steady minutes in the Wizards' rotation. Bradley Beal suffered an ankle injury during Game 1, and if that forces him to sit out Game 2 on Tuesday, Porter will have plenty of opportunity coming his way. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes will start Game 1 vs. GSW
    Nick Calathes will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's Game 1 vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Calathes will split minutes with Beno Udrih at the point guard position with Mike Conley (face) unavailable for this one. However, he'll get a very tough matchup against Stephen Curry of the Warriors, so owners of Calathes should temper their expectations. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:47 am
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) will play in Game 1
    Tony Allen (hamstring) will play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: He was never really in any danger of sitting this one out, but this report confirms that he will be active. He'll likely spend some time harassing both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson on defense. Rotoworld.com

  • Beno Udrih (ankle) good to go for Game 1
    Beno Udrih (ankle) will play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: Udrih will have some increased opportunity for minutes with Mike Conley (face) unavailable, however, he'll have a tough matchup against the Warriors so he's not that great of a daily league option. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea hopes to return to Dallas
    J.J. Barea is hoping that he will be a member of the Dallas Mavericks next season.

    Advice: "I want to," Barea said when asked if he wanted to return to Dallas. "I want to and hopefully this time we make it work. I had a lot of fun this year. I enjoyed being back. It feels like home for me here in Dallas so hopefully I can come back and finish my career here for the next couple years." Barea wasn't a big part of the rotation this season and averaged just 17.7 minutes per game, so he won't be a target in fantasy leagues regardless of where he lands in free agency. Rotoworld.com

  • Will Bynum will be inactive for Game 1
    Will Bynum will be inactive for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: Garrett Temple (hamstring) will be returning from an extended absence today, so something had to give. Bynum will have a hard time finding minutes in this series with the Wizards at full strength. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:56 am
  • DeJuan Blair will be inactive for Game 1
    DeJuan Blair will be inactive for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: Blair hasn't played in the postseason yet, so this isn't surprising. Drew Gooden will continue to be the primary big off the bench for the Wizards. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:54 am
  • Garrett Temple will be available for Game 1
    Head coach Randy Wittman confirmed that Garrett Temple (hamstring) will be available for Game 1 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: Temple has been on the shelf since Mar. 9 and just recently returned to practice on Friday, so there is no guarantee that he sees the floor today. With the Wizards at full strength, Temple will find it hard to carve out a significant role in this series. Rotoworld.com

  • Garrett Temple warming up for Game 1 Sun
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) is warming up to play in Game 1 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: Temple made it through practice on Friday and is expected to be available to play today, so this is definitely a good sign. However, he has been sidelined since Mar. 9, and with the way Otto Porter has been playing off the bench, Temple probably won't see many minutes right out of the gate. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle O'Quinn disappointed with his season
    Kyle O'Quinn was not happy with the way he performed this season.

    Advice: "Me personally, I don't think I played the way I should have," O'Quinn said. "It was too up-and-down for me." O'Quinn appeared in just 51 games this season after falling out of the rotation under interim head coach James Borrego and battling ankle injuries, but he is still just 25 years old and has plenty of potential. O'Quinn is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, but all signs point to him wearing a Magic uniform for the start of the 2015-16 season. As of right now, O'Quinn won't be a target in standard fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Glen Davis (ankle) plays well
    Glen Davis (ankle) played 11 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday with six points, three rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: Chris Paul overshadows his injury just a bit. Davis scored on his first possession and had a nice game. He'll be ready to go on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Glen Davis (ankle) will play in Game 7
    Glen Davis (ankle) will play against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: This comes from coach Doc Rivers and is as official as we'll get. Rivers said Davis is "good" for this game, so expect him to play around 10-15 minutes tonight. Blake Griffin should be around 42 minutes and DeAndre Jordan's playing time will be based on how often he's fouled. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • Report: Glen Davis feeling better for Game 7
    Glen Davis (ankle) is feeling better and it wouldn't be a surprise to see him play in Game 7 on Saturday.

    Advice: Considering he had to be in a wheelchair on Thursday, it's somewhat surprising to see Davis is feeling so much better today. While Big Baby is hardly a make-or-break player, it will be nice to have him available in order to keep Blake Griffin under 44 minutes tonight. We'll likely have an update around 90 minutes before the 8:00 EDT start time. Rotoworld.com

  • McHale: Pat Beverley (wrist) 'won't be back'
    When coach Kevin McHale was asked if Patrick Beverley (wrist) might return during the playoffs, he replied, "Pat won't be back."

    Advice: Beverley was seen taking a few shots while wearing a cast this week and he said in mid-April that there's a "very strong possibility" he could play in the postseason. That appears to be overly-optimistic, however, and the Rockets have already declared him out for the playoffs. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will continue to hold down the PG position, with James Harden doing all the heavy lifting for Houston's backcourt. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson will opt out, become free agent
    Alan Anderson expects to opt out of his player option in favor of free agency this summer.

    Advice: The 32-year-old swingman shot 34.8 percent from downtown this season and became a reliable rotation player for Lionel Hollins, though he was little more than a 3-point specialist in fantasy leagues. It's not surprising to see him turn down a $1.3 million salary to pursue the security of a longer-team deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Billy Donovan addresses Durant's free agency
    Thunder coach Billy Donovan's priority is to "develop a better relationship" with Kevin Durant.

    Advice: Donovan was hired on Thursday and Durant won't hit free agency until July 2016, but questions about Durant's future already loom large. "With his rehab I think we will have a chance to sit down and really spend a lot of time together," Donovan said. "I feel very, very confident in the organization and I think the organization and Kevin ... are a great match." Durant has been nothing but supportive of Donovan's hiring, and he's expected to be fully recovered from his foot surgery in 3-5 months. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson coming off the bench
    Alan Anderson will come off the bench again on Friday.

    Advice: The Nets are going with the same starters despite Anderson playing remarkably well. If Anderson is hot, expect him to take minutes away from Bojan Bogdanovic and/or Thaddeus Young. Rotoworld.com

  • Glen Davis (ankle) is questionable for Game 7
    Glen Davis (ankle) is listed as questionable to play against the Spurs in Game 7 on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Doc Rivers didn't have a noteworthy update today and we should get a better idea at shootaround on Saturday. Davis fortunately seems to have avoided a serious injury after needing a wheelchair on Thursday night. If he's out, Spencer Hawes may get a couple more minutes, but expect DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin to get 40 minutes each. Rotoworld.com

  • Rumor: GSW will go after Durant as an UFA
    According to Klay Thompson's father, Mychal Thompson, the Warriors are expected to "go hard after Kevin Durant" when he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2015-16 season.

    Advice: This report should be viewed with some substantial skepticism given what the Warriors would need to do to make this a reality. Yes, David Lee's massive contract will come off the books, and the salary cap will skyrocket when Durant becomes a free agent, but that still would only give the Warriors roughly $11 million in cap room to spend on a $25 million player. They would need to trade away some contracts to make the necessary room, and while it's not impossible, at this juncture it would seem highly improbable that Durant lands in Golden State as a free agent.

  • Garrett Temple goes through practice
    Garrett Temple went through practice on Friday and will be available for Game 1 in the second round.

    Advice: Temple had a hamstring strain with some tearing and has been out since Mar. 9. With Otto Porter really stepping up and Bradley Beal logging major minutes, there are not a lot of minutes available for Temple. Rotoworld.com

  • Glen Davis (ankle) listed as day-to-day
    Glen Davis (ankle) is officially being listed as day-to-day, and his status for Saturday's Game 7 against the Spurs remains uncertain.

    Advice: Davis is set to be re-evaluated later today, but given that he needed wheelchair to get to the locker room after sustaining the injury during Thursday's Game 6, we're going to be considering him doubtful for Saturday's Game 7 in Los Angeles. If Davis is unable to go, Blake Griffin will log as close to 48 minutes as possible in a do-or-die Game 7 for the Clippers. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:51 am
  • Glen Davis (ankle) uncertain for Game 7
    Glen Davis suffered low ankle sprain during Thursday's Game 6 win over the Spurs, and his status for Saturday's Game 7 has yet to be determined.

    Advice: Davis was in a considerable amount of pain after the injury, and he needed to be taken off the court in a wheelchair, so we're going to consider him doubtful for Game 7. Without Davis, Blake Griffin will get all the run he can handle, while Spencer Hawes and Ekpe Udoh will have the opportunity to log some extended minutes off the bench. The Clippers could also elect to go small and give Matt Barnes and Hedo Turkoglu some minutes at the four-spot. Griffin is the only guy with any meaningful fantasy value out of the group.

  • Glen Davis hurts ankle on Thursday
    Glen Davis suffered a left ankle injury in the fourth quarter on Thursday night.

    Advice: He couldn't put much weight on his left leg and received some treatment on the bench. He was in a lot of pain and needed to be taken off in a wheelchair, so this sounds like a serious injury or even an Achilles problem. He checked out with two points, three rebounds and two turnovers in 10 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant 'excited' to learn from Donovan
    Kevin Durant said that he's "excited to learn" from Billy Donovan, that he will do whatever his head coach asks him to do.

    Advice: Durant seems to be pleased with OKC's hiring, and he said that he's reached out to Mike Miller and Chandler Parsons to pick their brains about what it's like to play for Donovan, and he's heard nothing but positives. Durant is one of those players that's so talented it really doesn't matter what "system" he's put in to perform at a top-3 level, but coming off an injury plagued season, he'll make for a bit of a risky selection in next year's drafts.

  • Durant happy with potential Donovan hiring
    Kevin Durant is reportedly happy with the Thunder's interest in Billy Donovan as the team's next head coach.

    Advice: With news that Billy Donovan is nearing a multi-year deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kevin Durant has done his own research on the coach and is optimistic about the hiring. While Donovan doesn't have any NBA experience, he is one of the premier coaches in college hoops and will inherit a very talented roster. As long as Durant returns healthy for the 2015-16 season, he should have no problem thriving in Donovan's system and will likely be a top-5 selection in most fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes scores six points in Game 5
    Nick Calathes drew another start in Game 5 vs. the Blazers on Wednesday, scoring six points on 3-of-10 shooting with four assists and four boards in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Beno Udrih played just 15 minutes and clearly wasn't 100 percent, and Mike Conley (face) still has no timetable for a return. Calathes could potentially start the rest of the way for the Grizzlies, but he will have a very unfavorable matchup with the Grizzlies set to face Stephen Curry and the Warriors in the next round. However, if Calathes continues to flirt with 30 minutes of action, he would be an interesting option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:53 pm
  • Tony Allen, Nick Calathes starting Wednesday
    Updating a previous report, Tony Allen and Nick Calathes will remain in the starting lineup, while Jeff Green will continue to come off the bench.

    Advice: There were conflicting reports before the game, but the Grizzlies will continue to roll with the same starters. They will look to close out the Blazers in front of their home crowd tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson catches fire in a loss
    Alan Anderson kept the Nets in the game with a 23-point gem in a loss to the Hawks on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds and four 3-pointers on 9-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: He started the second half over Bojan Bogdanovic thanks to scoring 16 points in the first half. Anderson was already extremely efficient in this series, turning in an 80.0 effective field goal percentage in his previous four games. He will likely come off the bench on Friday with minutes in the 20s. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea logs 37 minutes as starter Tuesday
    J.J. Barea started again on Tuesday and had six points, six rebounds, nine assists and two steals in 37 minutes, shooting just 3-of-12 from the field as the Mavs were eliminated by the Rockets.

    Advice: Barea came into Game 5 with the third-best +/- rating in the playoffs -- at an impressive +12.5 per game, he was tied with Stephen Curry and trailed only Draymond Green (+19.3). He was a catalyst for the Mavs' postseason scoring with an offensive rating of 121.4, but he'll only be an asset in the deepest fantasy leagues no matter where he signs as a free agent. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:16 pm
  • J.J. Barea, Aminu starting again in Game 5
    J.J. Barea will earn another start at PG on Tuesday with Devin Harris and Raymond Felton coming off the bench.

    Advice: There was no doubt about Barea's status as a starter after Sunday's gem, during which he racked up 17 points and 13 assists in a do-or-die Game 4 victory. With only four teams active on Tuesday, Barea may be one of the best value plays in daily fantasy leagues. He'll join a starting lineup that includes Monta Ellis, Al-Farouq Aminu, Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:50 pm
  • Temple (hamstring) to be ready for 2nd round
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) has progressed to going through individual drills, and he should be ready to play for the Wizards' second-round series.

    Advice: As long as John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, Temple is going to have a tough time getting consistent minutes in Washington's rotations. He'll fight with Ramon Sessions for reserve minutes, but his fantasy value is essentially non-existent playing in a limited role off the bench for the Wizards. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes scores 12 points in start
    Nick Calathes scored 12 points in his first postseason start on Monday to go with three rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He was 4-of-10 from the field and did a decent job on the defensive side. Beno Udrih wasn't at 100 percent and that may have been why Calathes drew the start. The pair will likely be looking at a close to a 50/50 split again in Game 5 on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:17 pm
  • Beno Udrih plays 24 minutes off bench
    Beno Udrih returned to action on Monday with 13 points, three assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Blazers.

    Advice: He looked good on offense and split the playing time right now the middle. Udrih arrived to the arena in a walking boot, but he still seemed fine and was doing more than just catch-and-shoot stuff. Udrih should feel a little better for Game 5 on Wednesday. Although, Nick Calathes was no slouch either, so the pair will likely split the playing time again. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes will start at point guard
    Nick Calathes will start at point guard against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: Beno Udrih arrived in a walking boot to the arena, so he's not at 100 percent. Based on that information, it's hard to like either guy with so much uncertainty. The two might split the minutes down the middle, but it could go either way depending on Udrih's ankle. Rotoworld.com

  • Beno Udrih (ankle) will play on Monday night
    Beno Udrih (ankle) will play against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He went through shootaround and there's been no indication he'll be limited. Udrih will likely see around 26-32 minutes tonight while Nick Calathes backs him up. Udrih is a decent option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Patrick Beverley (wrist) taking some shots
    Patrick Beverley (wrist) was taking some shots while wearing his cast on Monday.

    Advice: He is still nowhere near close to a return and will be in a cast for another six weeks. Beverley has been on the bench with the team and will likely be out for the rest of the playoffs. He does hope to return later in the playoffs, but the Rockets would have to advance very far to make this even a possibility. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "I need it. I'm a young pup," Porter said of Pierce. "I need somebody to push me and that's what he's doing." Paul, your thoughts? "I think he's tired of me getting on him, too. I constantly stay in Otto's ear pushing him, trying to get him to be the best he can be. He's responded. He's starting to play with a little bit more fire."

    David Blatt praised Iman Shumpert's play after logging a double-double in Sunday's Game 4 win over the Celtics.

    Advice: Shumpert had 15 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, three blocks and shot a perfect 8-of-8 from the free-throw line. "Iman Shumpert gave us a huge game tonight, huge," Blatt said. "He was just all over the court...He was without question the X Factor. No question." Shumpert played a whopping 38 minutes, and with J.R.

    J.J. Barea thrived as a starter on Sunday with 17 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, 13 assists and one steal, helping the Mavericks stave off a season-ending loss by beating the Rockets 121-109.

    Advice: Rick Carlisle pulled the right strings tonight, enabling his short-handed squad to avoid a first-round sweep. When asked about Barea's excellent postseason play during his Mavs career, Carlisle said, "He's relished playoff opportunities ... I think that's how he's wired." Dallas will need Barea at his disruptive best when they try to extend the series to six games in Houston on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Beno Udrih (ankle) will play in Game 4 on Mon
    Beno Udrih (ankle) said that he will play in Game 4 against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: Udrih sat out on Saturday, but with Mike Conley (face) going down, Memphis really needs all they can get from Udrih. He'll likely start with Conley unavailable, so he'll be someone to consider as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert plays well through 38 minutes
    Iman Shumpert played well during his 38 minutes of action as the Cavs' swept their first-round series against the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 15 points while grabbing 10 rebounds.

    Advice: J.R. Smith was ejected from Sunday's game for elbowing Jae Crowder in the face, and there's really no way he doesn't get a suspension from the league. Shumpert was the first one off the bench when Smith was ejected, and his 38 minutes would suggest that he's going to be the primary beneficiary with Smith unavailable. He added one 3-pointer, two steals and three blocks to his stat line tonight, shooting 3-of-4 from the field and knocking down all eight of this free throw attempts. He could be make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues while Smith serves his suspension. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Mike Conley was forced to leave the game with an eye injury and Beno Udrih was held out tonight because of his ankle, so it was up to Calathes to close out the game and he certainly didn't disappoint. There is no word on whether or not Conley will have to miss time, but Beno Udrih is expected to return for Game 4 on Monday. Owners in daily leagues should keep a close eye on the injury report.

    Advice: Barea could be looking at an even bigger workload in Sunday's Game 4 with Devin Harris banged up and Raymond Felton only able to handle 13 minutes tonight. He'll be a popular target in DFS as long as his price doesn't rise too much. Rotoworld.com

  • Temple (hamstring) still not able to practice
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) has still not been able to practice.

    Advice: Temple isn't close to being ready for any game-time action, and it'll be Ramon Sessions serving as Washington's primary backup point guard for however long he's sidelined. As long as John Wall is healthy, the backup point guards in Washington will remain non-options in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
