  • Report: Wizards will offer Beal a max deal
    According to sources of the Washington Post, the Wizards are expected to offer Bradley Beal a five-year max deal.

    Advice: We already knew the Wizards wanted to re-sign Beal, but he's been adamant about receiving a max deal and it sounds like Washington will give it to him. His durability issues are a major red flag, but the Wizards don't really have any alternative options and the rising salary cap will allow them to take some risks. He's a restricted free agent, so the Wizards will still be able to match any opposing offers if they change their mind about giving him the max. Free agency begins on July 1st.

  • Pat Riley expects to re-sign Dwyane Wade
    Pat Riley hinted that he fully expects to re-sign Dwyane Wade this summer.

    Advice: "He wants to win, I think, as much as he wants to do anything," Riley said. "Compensation to a player is not just a way to get paid and to live your life. Compensation to a player is about recognition and respect and place. We know where he belongs…He’s a lifer. What he’s done in this city over the last 13 years is irreplaceable and so we’re going to do the right thing. There’s no doubt." While Wade is fully expected to return to Miami, it's unclear if he's willing to take a discount to give his team more financial flexibility in free agency. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:26 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 31; Warriors win Game 5
    Stephen Curry looked healthy during a Game 5 120-11 victory over the Thunder on Thursday, making 9-of-20 from the field for 31 points with seven rebounds, six assists, five steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: With all the rumors swirling around Curry saying he's only at 70 percent, he looked much better. After the game, coach Steve Kerr said Curry "looked like 91 percent" in what was his best scoring output in this series. A big difference for Curry was his on-ball plays as he was able to get to the rim more often with his eight shots within three feet. He'll have Friday off, so maybe he'll be at 95 percent for Game 6 in OKC as the Warriors look to tie the series at three. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Dion Waiters goes scoreless in loss
    Dion Waiters did not score on Thursday with four rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Up until tonight, the Thunder were effective when he was on the court during this series, including a plus-56 in plus-minus during his 66 minutes in the last two games. Tonight was a different story with Waiters posting a team-low minus-18. Coach Billy Donovan used Waiters as a ball-handler once again during this game, but he couldn't get free too often for scoring. He will be as risky as ever for Game 6. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:39 pm
  • Andre Roberson scores six points vs. GSW
    Andre Roberson fouled out in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's coming off the best career of his game because the Warriors left him alone in most offensive sets on Tuesday. However, it was a little different this time with his teammates missing him on some open looks. Roberson's minutes should be safe, but the Thunder may not go small as much now that the Warriors made an adjustment to go bigger. Still, Roberson's DFS owners have to be satisfied with this and can dial him up again in Game 6. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:37 pm
  • Dwyane Wade wants to end his career w/ Miami
    Dwyane Wade again re-stated his desire to finish his career with the Miami Heat.

    Advice: "I don’t want to be on the market at all," Wade said of his impending free agency. "I’m not curious at all. I want to get to it [with the Heat]. I want to be able to sign my deal and move on and not have to deal with any rumors, any free agency, any this, any that. This is where I want to end my career. So we’ll figure it out." Pat Riley echoed Wade's sentiment saying, "We know where he belongs… He’s a lifer." Expect Wade's free agency to be handled quickly sans surprises. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:14 pm
  • Report: WAS determined to keep core together
    The Wizards are reportedly determined to keep their core of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat intact.

    Advice: Beal will be seeking a max deal as a restricted free agent this offseason, and given that Beal is one of the higher upside guys in the upcoming free agency class, he'll likely find a team out there willing to pay him big money. The Wizards will have the right to match any offer that Beal receives on the open market, and early indications are that they will do whatever they can to retain him, despite his constant struggles with staying healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:55 pm
  • Stephen Curry says knee is feeling fine
    Stephen Curry (knee) insisted that his injured knee is feeling fine on Thursday.

    Advice: When asked about a report that he is playing at 70 percent, Curry said his knee is fine and refused to use it as an excuse. Curry added that the Warriors aren't outmatched and are just being outplayed. Steph will have an opportunity to turn things around at home in Game 5 on Thursday and will be facing a long offseason as the defending champs face an elimination game.

  • Kyrie Irving scores 23 points in blowout win
    Kyrie Irving scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting vs. the Raptors on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and just one turnover in 27 minutes.

    Advice: The Cavs roared out to a 31-point lead in the first half, the largest first-half lead in NBA Conference finals history, and they never looked back. Their 'big three' was perfectly in sync, scoring at least 23 points each in the blowout, and as a team they shot a ridiculous 57.1 percent from the field. Tristan Thompson added nine points and 10 boards, J.R. Smith had seven points six boards and four steals, and Cleveland can now clinch the series with a win in Toronto on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:29 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan lousy in blowout Game 5 defeat
    DeMar DeRozan had a game to forget on Wednesday, shooting 2-of-8 from the field and 10-of-12 from the line to finish a blowout loss with 14 points, three boards, three assists and two steals.

    Advice: The Raptors were beat in every facet of the game tonight, trailing by a franchise-record 31 points going into halftime. They were a combined 21-of-35 from the free throw line and 3-of-17 beyond the arc, they turned the ball over 18 times, and they were out-rebounded 48-27, with only 10 boards during the entire first half. DeRozan and co. will need to hit the 'reset' button before Friday's must-win Game in Toronto. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Kerr: Stephen Curry not where he needs to be
    Coach Steve Kerr said Stephen Curry "may just not be quite where he needs to be" right now.

    Advice: Kerr said Curry is not hurt, but a previous report said he's playing at 70 percent. In the last two games, the Thunder have put a stop to Curry catch-and-shoot shots with the MVP making just 1-of-10 on those. Maybe the home crowd will help him on Thursday with the Warriors needing Curry to resemble the regular-season version of himself. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:40 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard leads All-Defensive First Team
    Kawhi Leonard was unanimously selected to the NBA All-Defensive First Team on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had 260 points with the 130 ballots all giving him two points for the first-team nod. Draymond Green (251 points), DeAndre Jordan (137), Avery Bradley (149) and Chris Paul (148) rounded out the first unit. Leonard will be on the All-Defensive First Team for a long, long time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:07 pm
  • Kyle Korver excited for a healthy offseason
    Kyle Korver said that he's looking forward to a "good summer of training."

    Advice: "I'm actually going to work out," Korver said with a laugh. "I'm excited to be on my feet today. I'm looking forward to a good summer of training again and being able to get back to what I like to do in the offseason." Korver spent all of last summer rehabbing from ankle and elbow surgeries, but he'll be able to get back into his usual routine this summer. Still, after averaging just 9.2 points and 2.0 triples per game this past season, he won't be worth anything more than a late-round flier on draft day. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:49 am
  • Sergey Karasev unlikely to be a Net next year
    Sergey Karasev is unlikely to suit up for the Nets next season.

    Advice: The Nets declined to pickup their team option on Karasev for the 2016-17 season, so he'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Karasev has reportedly already begun training for next season, and his father stated during a recent interview that he will look at all his options this offseason, including a return to Europe. Karasev has been in the league for three years and has never established himself as a rotation player, so his fantasy value is right around nil. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 am
  • Marco Belinelli says he wants to 'win now'
    Marco Belinelli stated during a recent interview with Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport that he wants to be a part of a winning team.

    Advice: "I want to win now. To make that happen, something has to happen," said Belinelli. "I'm still under contract with Sacramento and I have trust in the organization but in the NBA you never know what may happen." Belinelli doesn't sound like a guy that's all that happy to be on the books for another two years in Sacramento, but he was the guy that chose to go there as a free agent. With the Kings, Belinelli won’t be anything more than a deep league, 3-point specialist. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 am
  • Billy Donovan praises Andre Roberson's play
    Billy Donovan praised Andre Roberson's play following Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: "It's funny," Donovan said. "After Game 2 people are saying to me: ‘Is this guy going to even play anymore?' Andre's a good basketball player and I think sometimes the things that go missing with him is he makes winning plays." Roberson, typically viewed as a defensive specialist, has suddenly emerged as an offensive option for the Thunder posting averages of 15.0 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 triples, 3.0 steals and 1.0 block on 57.1 percent shooting over his past two outings. The Dubs have been completely ignoring him on defense, and Roberson has made them pay. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:15 am
  • Report: Stephen Curry playing at 70 percent
    Stephen Curry (knee) is playing "at 70 percent, at best," according to a source of Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: While unnamed sources dispute the health of Curry's knee, you won't hear Curry, nor head coach Steve Kerr making any excuses. Curry said he was "fine" after Game 4's loss, and Kerr stated that he's "not injured," but Curry's lack of explosion and inability to take advantage of the bigs when they switch on him tells a bit of a different story. To be clear, Curry is in zero danger of spending any time on the sidelines, and the Dubs will need him to look more like MVP-Curry if they hope to secure a Game 5 win when they return to their home court on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:20 am
  • Klay Thompson scores 26 points in loss
    Klay Thompson scored 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Game 4 vs. the Thunder with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was held to four points in the first half and got into some early foul trouble, but his 19-point explosion in the third quarter nearly got the Warriors back into the game. It obviously wasn't nearly enough in the end, as the Warriors were outscored 24-12 in the fourth. If the Warriors are going to take away any positives from this nightmare showing, it's that maybe Thompson will be able build off this momentum for Game 5. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:38 pm
  • Stephen Curry shoots 6-of-20 in Game 4 loss
    Stephen Curry struggled in Tuesday's 118-94 loss in Game 4, scoring 19 points on 6-of-20 shooting.

    Advice: He was also just 2-of-10 from beyond the arc with six turnovers, adding five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes. As much as Curry struggled, coach Steve Kerr made it clear after the game that the MVP is not injured. "Steph Curry is not injured," Kerr said. "He just had a lousy night. It happens." With Golden State trailing 3-1, they will need a much better effort from Curry for the Warriors to get back in this series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:19 pm
  • Roberson scores 17 w/ 12 boards, 5 steals
    Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:05 pm
  • Warriors will not make a lineup change
    The Warriors will not make a lineup change for Game 4 vs. the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Advice: Warriors coach Steve Kerr may have considered a lineup change with either Harrison Barnes or Andrew Bogut moving to the bench in favor of Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli, but Golden State will stand pat for now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:00 pm
  • Report: Kerr could tweak starting five for G4
    Steve Kerr may adjust his starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Thunder, according to Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Advice: Media members asked Kerr about a potential lineup switch on Monday and Tuesday, but Kerr would not give any indication whether he's leaning one way or the other. Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut have not been very effective through the Western Conference Finals, and with the Dubs in must-win territory, there's a chance Kerr tweaks his starting five. Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli would be the most likely to enter the starting five should Kerr make a change, although if a change were to occur, it’s unlikely we’d get word until just prior to tip-off. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 pm
  • Goran Dragic had pledged to re-sign with PHX
    Goran Dragic had reportedly pledged to re-sign with the Suns before they traded him in 2015.

    Advice: According to Ken Berger of CBS, Dragic had told the Suns he would re-sign with the team before they traded him. "Within days of [Jeff] Hornacek having a heart-to-heart with Dragic and securing a commitment from the Slovenian point guard to re-sign with the Suns as a free agent the following summer, the Suns shipped him to Miami in a three-team trade, a person familiar with the situation told CBS Sports," Berger wrote. While this changes the perception of the Suns' haul a bit, this news is more just an interesting tidbit as Dragic is coming off his first full season with the Heat. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:32 am
  • Head coach says Victor Oladipo special talent
    Magic head coach Frank Vogel called Victor Oladipo a special talent.

    Advice: Vogel hasn't had a chance to coach Oladipo yet, but is familiar with the 24-year-old from his time as the Pacers head coach. "I think Victor Oladipo is a special, special talent," Vogel said. Oladipo averaged 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers in 2015-16 and will be an elite fantasy option in 2016-17 if Vogel can help him take the next step. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:57 am
  • DeMar DeRozan praises Lowry's Game 4 play
    DeMar DeRozan praised Kyle Lowry's performance in Monday's Game 4 win over Cleveland.

    Advice: "It's a cake walk for me once he gets going," DeRozan said. "It opens up everything for me on the floor. Teams try to focus in on him, and he knows when to get me going. He got the ball, he's our point guard, he's our leader of this team and he knows how to orchestrate what needs to be done out there." While Lowry had a great game on Monday, DeRozan's second consecutive 32-point performance helped the Raptors even the series. He seems to be getting over the thumb injury that hampered him earlier in the playoffs and should continue be a big factor for the Raptors for the rest of the postseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:46 am
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 32 points again in win
    DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points for the second straight win over the Cavs on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: A big story for the Raptors was their free throw shooting. They became the first Conference Finals team since 2001 to not have a free throw in the first half with a 15-plus point lead, but then they went to the line 19 times in the second half as a team. As for DeRozan, he continues to thrive on contested shots and even fared better against LeBron James as the game went on -- he scored 12 in the fourth quarter on 5-of-6 from the field. We'll see how he handles playing in Cleveland on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:52 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 26 points in a loss
    Kyrie Irving scored 26 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Raptors on Monday.

    Advice: It was a better offensive bounce-back game in this loss. Irving was just 3-of-19 from the field in Game 3, but he made 11-of-21 from the field tonight. On the downside, Irving was torched on the defensive end with Lowry getting almost anything he wanted. Expect him to get a ton of shots in Game 5. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:25 pm
  • Bradley Beal says he's looking for max deal
    Bradley Beal said he's looking for a max contract this summer.

    Advice: "I feel like I’m a max player and that’s what I’m looking for," Beal said. "If Washington can’t meet that requirement then I may be thinking elsewhere. I’m pretty sure that they probably won’t [let me go]." Beal would be looking for a deal of around $92 million over four years. His leg injury concerns make him a big risk, so there may not be a big market for him at that price. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:31 pm
  • Andre Roberson stays hot from deep, scores 13
    Andre Roberson started again on Sunday and had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Roberson is 8-of-13 from downtown in his past four games and the Warriors have dared him to beat them from the arc -- tonight Andrew Bogut began as his primary defender, and when Draymond Green has him he frequently roams to the opposite side of the court. Roberson did a good job cutting hard and moving without the ball, rewarding Billy Donovan's decision to keep him in the starting lineup. He'll be on Golden State's radar in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Dion Waiters thrives in 34 minutes off bench
    Dion Waiters was terrific in 34 minutes off the bench during Sunday's Game 3 victory, making 6-of-11 shots to finish with 13 points, three rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover.

    Advice: Waiters chose his shots wisely and set up his teammates for a few easy buckets, all while playing solid defense. The soon-to-be free agent (restricted) is having an impressive postseason, and he's a big reason the Thunder have a 2-1 series lead against the reigning champs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:59 pm
  • Andre Iguodala solid in futile bench effort
    Andre Iguodala came off the Warriors' bench on Sunday for nine points, four boards, three assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Last year's Finals MVP continues to have a big impact despite having very few plays called for him -- in Games 1 and 2 he had a 13.6 percent usage rate, higher than only Shaun Livingston, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut. His efforts weren't nearly enough tonight, and his minutes were limited by garbage time, but he should resume playing 28-32 minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:51 pm
  • Stephen Curry (elbow) scores 24 in Gm 3 loss
    Stephen Curry (elbow) finished Sunday's 133-105 Game 3 defeat with 24 points on 7-of-17 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Curry shot well in Game 2 and he wasn't even listed on Golden State's injury report tonight, so his struggles can't be blamed on injuries -- credit is due to OKC's defense, which switched pick-and-rolls and used its length to confound the Warriors. The starting unit for Golden State shot a combined 20-of-57 from the field (35.1 percent) and it's safe to assume they'll be burning for redemption in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:50 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan still dealing w/ pain in thumb
    DeMar DeRozan said that while his right thumb is improving every day, he's still experiencing pain.

    Advice: To be clear, this is just something that DeRozan is going to have to deal with, and he's in zero danger of the injury forcing him to the sidelines. DeRozan had himself an efficient outing during Toronto's Game 3 win over Cleveland, scoring 32 points on 12-of-24 shooting, and the Raptors will need him to continue that trend if they hope to secure a Game 4 win on Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:51 pm
  • Stephen Curry (elbow) will start in Game 3
    Stephen Curry (elbow) will be in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Curry was a full participant during shootaround, and he's not even being listed on the injury report. He was never in any danger of missing Game 3, and head coach Steve Kerr said that Curry was shooting the ball well during shootaround, so it doesn't seem like the injury will impact his play. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:58 pm
  • Stephen Curry going through shootaround
    Stephen Curry (elbow) is going through the morning shootaround as expected.

    Advice: Coach Steve Kerr said that Curry was shooting the ball well and that his elbow isn't giving him any issues. We'll likely have official confirmation soon, but Curry is fully expected to play in Game 3 vs. the Thunder. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:56 am
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 32 in Game 3 victory
    DeMar DeRozan scored 32 points during a 99-86 Game 3 win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He was 12-of-24 from the field and hit plenty of contested jumpers. In fact, he had 22 of his 24 shots contested during this win. This was DeRozan's second postseason game of his career without any turnovers and played fairly mistake-free ball on both ends. The Cavs used LeBron James on DeRozan late in the game, so that might be something to watch early in Game 6. DeRozan will need to be on his game on Monday to get another win. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:52 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 13, gets hurt late
    Kyrie Irving made 3-of-19 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He was in some pain after some contact under the basket. Irving did play through it, but he was clearly in some discomfort after the game. There doesn't appear to be anything seriously wrong with him, so he should be all good for Game 4. Irving had by far his worst game after shooting an even 50.0 percent from the field in his previous 10 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:09 pm
  • Curry: Injury is uncomfortable, not painful
    Stephen Curry (elbow) said his injury is more "uncomfortable" than "painful."

    Advice: He said he has a full range of motion after going through a full practice on Friday. "It doesn’t cause any problems mechanically, so I can still use my arm and do what I need to do," Curry said. He wore a compression sleeve and there is no word if he'll keep it on for Sunday. Curry will be ready to roll for a big Game 3 in Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:26 pm
  • Stephen Curry's swelling down, wearing brace
    Stephen Curry practiced on Friday and the swelling in his elbow appears to have subsided.

    Advice: He did have a brace on his elbow, so the injury isn't completely behind him. Luckily for the Warriors, the schedule helps them with Game 3 not until Sunday. All that time off should help his knee injury, as well. Expect Curry to have a big game in Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:42 pm
  • Pat Riley wants Wade to shoot more 3-pointers
    Pat Riley wants Dwyane Wade to work on his 3-pointers this summer.

    Advice: "Maybe he could become a 40 percent, 38 percent 3-point shooter," Riley said of Wade. "I wouldn’t give him an open look. Once he went to work with the coaches on it, that shot, if he had to take it, was normal. That would be a big added part of his game next year because nobody ever thinks he can do that." Wade's 3-point shot has always been his biggest weakness, but he did shoot 52.2 percent from deep in the postseason and that could give his fantasy value a boost next season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:47 am
  • Kyrie Irving scores 26 points in easy win
    Kyrie Irving scored 26 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: He is really taking it to the Raptors with a 27-point game during his 30 minutes in Game 1. Irving has tremendous efficiency in this postseason with a 60.6 true shooting percentage on a 28.2 usage rate. Plus, he has a solid 2.9 assist:turnover ratio in his 35.8 minutes during these 10 wins. The Cavs look really dangerous when Kyrie is on and his minutes increase has helped his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:27 pm
  • Andre Iguodala hits video-game layup in Gm 2
    Andre Iguodala led the Warriors' second unit on Wednesday with 14 points (4-of-10 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), three rebounds, three steals and one assist in 26 minutes of action.

    Advice: Iguodala hit one 3-pointer and he was surprisingly efficient at the FT line, but his offensive highlight was a double-pump, and-one layup which you can marvel at via the link below. OKC was a dominant rebounding team during the regular season but tonight Golden State won the battle, 45-36, including 15 offensive boards. The stage is set for an epic Western Conference finals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • Klay Thompson shoots 5-of-17 for 15 points
    Klay Thompson made just 5-of-17 shots to finish Wednesday's home victory with 15 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Klay's defense on Russell Westbrook was exemplary, however, and he could have had a bigger game if the score weren't out of hand -- Golden State led by as many as 33 points in the fourth quarter. The Warriors shot 50.6 percent from the field, including 46.4 percent from downtown, and they still haven't suffered consecutive losses during the 2015-16 season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:50 pm
  • Magic interview coach David Vanterpool
    Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool interviewed for Orlando's vacant head coaching position on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vanterpool has interviewed for head coaching jobs before but he's never made the leap, and Orlando has also discussed their position with Frank Vogel and current assistant Adrian Griffin. GM Rob Hennigan said recently that "stability is very important," seemingly giving Griffin an advantage, but we shouldn't have to wait long for Orlando's final decision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:26 pm
  • Heat will work with Dragic this summer
    The Heat will send staff to Europe to work with Goran Dragic.

    Advice: The team isn't cutting corners on working with their point guard. Dragic had himself a very nice series against the Raptors, averaging 18.9 points, 5.3 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.3 treys. He started the season slow, so maybe a good offseason program can help him out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 18 points in loss
    DeMar DeRozan scored 18 points on 9-of-17 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers with five assists and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was Toronto's best player tonight, but that's not saying much. The Raptors lost by 31 points and the game was basically over at halftime, but it's worth noting that Toronto also lost Game 1 of their first two series against Indiana and Miami as well. We'll see if DeRozan can help his team steal Game 2 in Cleveland on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Kyrie Irving drops 27 points in 30 minutes
    Kyrie Irving dropped 27 points in 30 minutes in Tuesday's Game 1 win over the Raptors.

    Advice: He got to the rim at will and shot an impressive 11-of-17 from the field, adding five assists, two boards, two blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. Not only was his offense great, but Irving kept Kyle Lowry in check by limiting him to eight points on 4-of-14 shooting. "He does a tremendous job of leading their team," Irving said of Lowry. "I have to do a great job of keeping my body in front of him, making it difficult and forcing him into tough shots." If Game 1 is any indication, Irving looks poised for a monster series.

  • Goran Dragic says he will play for Slovenia
    Goran Dragic said during his exit interview that he will suit up for the Slovenian National Team this summer.

    Advice: Dragic also said that he would like for the Heat to play with pace next year, and it's easy to understand why as his numbers spiked to 17.3 points, 6.7 assists, 4.6 boards and 1.0 steal per game on 48.5 percent shooting after the All-Star break. Chris Bosh's (blood clots) future will likely determine the direction of the Miami franchise, but Dragic has made it known that his preference is to play at an uptempo pace. He should go somewhere in the mid-rounds on draft day. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:01 pm
  • Dion Waiters is solid in a win, scores 10
    Dion Waiters made 4-of-6 from the field for 10 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He was very underrated in the last round and it looked like he might get more run tonight with a slow start from Andre Roberson on both ends. However, Roberson came out swinging in the second half. Before the game, Russell Westbrook credited Waiters for his passing lately and Waiters actually matched his postseason career-high four dimes. His defense wasn't terrible in this game and he'll be splitting the minutes at shooting guard with Andre Roberson. He's on the board as a DFS punt. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:18 pm
  • Andre Roberson is actually decent in win
    Andre Roberson made all three shots from the field for seven points against the Warriors on Monday, adding five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

    Advice: To open the game, the Warriors had Draymond Green "covering" Roberson, but Green was really just playing safety to really focus on weak-side help. After a bad first half, Roberson started out strong in the second half. There's a decent chance this is his best scoring output in this series with his tidy efficiency, so he's not really a viable DFS punt. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:12 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 25 points in Game 1 loss
    Klay Thompson scored 25 points during a 108-102 loss to the Thunder on Monday, adding nine rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: It looked like Klay was going to have a monster game with 19 first-half points, but he fizzled out late. Coach Steve Kerr put Thompson on Kevin Durant more often in the second half, which may have been the culprit after the break. The Warriors only had 14 points in the fourth quarter and 42 points in the second half to set 2016 postseason lows. Thompson being a two-way player will be a big part of his postseason role, but his DFS output will depend on his scoring. His nine rebounds are his second-best total in a postseason game for his career, as well. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:10 pm
