  • Mike Miller will come off bench Wednesday
    Mike Miller will come off the bench on Wednesday for Game 2 against the Bulls, with Tristan Thompson set to move into the starting lineup.

    Advice: Miller played just 16 minutes in a start during Game 1, but he produced just three points (a 3-pointer) on 1-of-2 shooting with five boards and one block. Miller didn't play at all in the previous series against Boston, so it will be interesting to see if he is still part of the rotation moving forward. J.R. Smith is suspended for one more game, so Miller's best chance for minutes will likely be tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen insists he's 1st-team All-Defense
    Tony Allen racked up four steals during Tuesday's impressive win at Golden State, adding nine points, four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Few things in the NBA are better than the Grindfather in playoffs-mode. Throughout the game, Allen followed up key defensive plays by turning to the TNT announcers and yelling, "First-Team All Defense!" It's hard to argue after tonight's display and Allen has even picked up the pace offensively in the second round, averaging 12.0 points on 55.6 percent shooting in two games vs. the Warriors. When asked if he'd prefer to defend Stephen Curry or Klay Thompson, Allen replied, "It really don't matter. I'm paid to be a defender, and I'm ready to defend." Rotoworld.com

  • Leandro Barbosa scores 14 pts in 14 minutes
    Leandro Barbosa was a man on a mission Tuesday, coming off the bench for 14 points in 14 minutes during the Warriors' Game 2 defeat.

    Advice: Kerr said after the third quarter that his team wasn't "poised" and "felt rushed" before finding some success with a small lineup. Barbosa helped Golden State's second unit claim a 25-16 advantage tonight, and they'll look to bolster the starters again on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

  • Klay Thompson struggles in rare home loss
    Klay Thompson suffered through a brutal game on Tuesday, going 6-of-15 from the field to finish with 13 points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and five turnovers.

    Advice: Tony Allen's smothering defense deserves enormous credit, as he and Courtney Lee took Klay out of rhythm before a minor flurry in the fourth quarter. The Warriors hadn't lost on their home court since late January and this may have been a mere hiccup for the league's top-seeded team, but the Grizzlies confirmed tonight that they won't be an easy out.

  • Stephen Curry accepts MVP but loses Game 2
    Stephen Curry received his league MVP award prior to Game 2 on Tuesday but the celebration didn't last long, as the Warriors fell 90-97 to tie their second-round series at 1-1.

    Advice: Curry shot 2-of-11 from downtown and 7-of-19 overall, adding five rebounds, six assists, three turnovers and zero defensive stats. He missed some shots he normally makes but he was also harried on the perimeter by the Grizzlies' defense, including an unreal play from Tony Allen which you can watch via the link below.

  • Nick Calathes: From starter to near DNP-CD
    Nick Calathes barely stepped on the court during Tuesday's road win, as Mike Conley (face) returned to the starting lineup and Beno Udrih served as the Grizzlies' primary backup PG.

    Advice: Calathes struggled as a starter in Conley's absence, going scoreless with two assists vs. three turnovers in 21 minutes during Sunday's Game 1 defeat. Conley's left calf appeared to cramp up down the stretch, thrusting Calathes into the game momentarily, and we're not expecting him to play a substantial role in Game 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal scores 20 points in Game 2 loss
    Bradley Beal played through a sprained ankle to finish Tuesday's Game 2 loss with 20 points on 8-of-22 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 43 minutes.

    Advice: John Wall's absence left a gaping hole in the Wizards' offense which Beal did his best to fill. His ankle didn't appear to limit him and he was at his best attacking the rim, but there were too many mid-range jumpers -- he shot 1-of-7 between 8-20 feet from the basket. With three full days of rest before the series resumes it's safe to assume that Beal will be raring to go for Game 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramon Sessions gets 21 pts at PG w/ Wall out
    Ramon Sessions poured in a playoff-career-high 21 points as a fill-in starter for John Wall (wrist) during Game 2, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and four assists.

    Advice: Wall nearly suited up tonight and the Wizards don't play again until Saturday, so there's a chance this will be Sessions' only start of the series. He did all that he could tonight but as a natural scorer he can't replace Wall's extraordinary playmaking, and his scoring was all for naught as the Wizards fell 90-106 on the road. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Garrett Temple returns after two-months out
    Garrett Temple returned from a nearly two-month absence on Tuesday to score two points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 13 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Temple strained his hamstring and hadn't played since March 9, but John Wall's wrist injury thrust him into a key role behind starting PG Ramon Sessions. He's ahead of Will Bynum (DNP-CD) on the depth chart, but that's not saying much -- he's a fantasy pariah whether or not Wall is ready for Saturday's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Otto Porter scores 15 points w/ full line Tue
    Otto Porter's impressive postseason play continued with 15 points, eight boards, five assists, three steals and zero turnovers in 31 minutes vs. the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Porter drained a pair of 3-pointers and was 6-of-12 from the field overall, and his length once again gave the Hawks trouble defensively. He's been something of a revelation in the playoffs and has emerged as a reliable sixth-man, averaging 11.6 points, 1.8 threes, 8.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 steals over the Wizards' past five games. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:54 pm
  • Ramon Sessions starts at PG w/ Wall out
    Ramon Sessions will start at point guard on Tuesday with John Wall (wrist) unable to play.

    Advice: Garrett Temple will be Sessions' primary backup and Washington may opt to activate Will Bynum. Sessions is the guy to target for temporary value and Bradley Beal should also handle the ball more, assuming his sprained ankle holds up. Sessions started 10 games this season and averaged 10.2 points, 0.8 threes, 3.6 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 0.2 steals, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations modest. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers says he can run sets Paul can't
    Austin Rivers said there are sets he can run that Chris Paul can't and vice versa.

    Advice: "I can’t run the same sets he does and there are sets that I run that he can’t run," Rivers said. While Rivers scored 17 points to go along with one rebound, three assists, four steals, and four three-pointers in Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets, he's also saying he can do things that a top-5 MVP candidate can't. We'll just let the quote speak for itself. Rotoworld.com

  • Goran Dragic says Miami is his first choice
    Goran Dragic said the Miami Heat are his first choice in free agency.

    Advice: Dragic will opt out of his contract before the end of the month, but he said he's hoping to stay with the Heat as long as the two sides are on the same page financially. "As long as I’m in a happy environment and a healthy organization, that’s the most important thing," Dragic said. "The next three, four, five years — I want to spend it on this kind of team, like the Miami Heat. They have great players, great coaching staff and great training staff." While he didn't return value as a third-round pick in 2014-15 , Dragic should benefit from a full season in a Heat uniform if he returns and is worthy of an early-mid round selection in fantasy drafts.

  • Bradley Beal set to play Game 2 vs Hawks
    Bradley Beal (ankle) will suit up for Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Confirming a previous item in which Beal said he expected to play, the 21-year-old will officially be in the Wizards' starting lineup on Tuesday. Beal has dealt with quite a few ankle injuries in his short NBA tenure, but he practiced without much issue on Monday and should be in good enough shape to continue his strong playoff run in Game 2 against the Hawks. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:00 am
  • Bradley Beal expects to play in Game 2
    Bradley Beal (ankle) said he expects to play in Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Before comparing playing the Hawks to fighting Floyd Mayweather, Beal didn't sound too concerned about his availability for Tuesday night. "I should be good [Tuesday]," Beal said. "I've sprained this ankle 30 times. The swelling has never gone away. [But] it wasn't that bad. Actually, I got to thank my trainers because I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday." The 21-year-old is averaging 22.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in the playoffs and should be all-systems-go for Tuesday's Game 2. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:19 am
  • Nic Batum not worried about trade possibility
    Nicolas Batum said he isn't concerned about rumors that have the Trail Blazers looking to trade him.

    Advice: Blazers general manager Neil Olshey promised the team would be "very active" in the offseason, but Batum isn't worried that his name has popped up in trade rumors. "If that happens, it happens," Batum said. "That’s the business, I understand that. I mean, I can’t control that. All I can control is what I put on the court. I know what I am going to do this summer is try to get better." While Batum has top-25 fantasy potential, he'll need to build on his 2014-15 season averages of 9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers or else his fantasy owners will be left disappointed for the second consecutive season.

  • Austin powers the Clippers, at least a little
    Austin Rivers started for injured Chris Paul (hamstring) and scored 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including four threes) with one rebound, three assists and four steals in Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets.

    Advice: Let's be clear, he had more bad plays than we could count and was a sieve defensively, but he buried open threes and the Rockets were their own brand of terrible. If Paul can't go in Game 2 (or Doc Rivers thinks he can win one without him), then this would be Rivers' high-water mark. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:06 pm
  • Crawford goes big with 21-5-4 in Game 1 win
    Jamal Crawford stepped up with Chris Paul (hamstring) out for Monday's Game 1 win over the Rockets, scoring 21 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Crawford showed a tiny bit more explosion than he had in the Spurs series and he's the team's primary ballhandler with Paul out so the numbers will be there if that's the case in Game 2. He had six turnovers but that's a tradeoff owners will take here. Rotoworld.com

  • Ariza hits 7-of-13 shots for 17 points
    Trevor Ariza hit 7-of-13 shots (including two threes) for 17 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and one block in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Ariza couldn't hit the broadside of the barn last series and it would be fairly shocking if he had two bad series in a row. Consider riding him as he heats back up. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyrie Irving scores 30 points in Game 1 loss
    Kyrie Irving scored 30 points on 10-of-23 shooting (1-of-5 3PTs, 9-of-9 FTs) with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Irving's offense was fine but defensively both he and his teammates struggled as they let the Bulls hit 50 percent of their field goals and 55.6 percent from deep. The Cavs will need to improve in that area to win any games in which the Bulls haven't pulled one of their patented disappearing acts. Rotoworld.com

  • Miller logs 16 minutes in Game 1 start
    Mike Miller logged 16 minutes in Monday's Game 1 start, scoring three points on 1-of-2 shooting with five rebounds and one block.

    Advice: David Blatt said that he was considering a lineup change after the Cavs' loss and Miller's position would be a primary place to look. Even in the best of situations there's not much for owners to look at here. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:39 pm
  • Dunleavy posts solid line in Game 1 win
    Mike Dunleavy hit 5-of-6 shots (3-of-4 from deep) for 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one steal over 39 minutes in Monday's Game 1 win over the Cavs.

    Advice: Dunleavy could be in for a heavy workload this series and though he'll be hard pressed to keep shooting like this -- owners will want to give him a bit of added consideration with this workload. Pau Gasol added 21 points, 10 boards, four assists and four blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimmy Butler plays excellent two-way game
    Jimmy Butler was a two-way star in Monday's Game 1 win over the Cavs, scoring 20 points on 7-o-16 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, six assists and three steals in 44 minutes.

    Advice: Butler also defended LeBron James very well and survived an ankle tweak. We'll let you know if the latter becomes an issue, but he's primed to have a productive series and especially if the Cavs defend the way they did tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers starting for LAC in Game 1
    Austin Rivers will start for injured Chris Paul (hamstring) in Monday's Game 1 opener against the Rockets.

    Advice: Rivers won't face an impact defender and he'll have quite a bit of playing time to put points on the board, but look for the offense to be run through Blake Griffin, Jamal Crawford, J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:30 pm
  • Wittman: Brad Beal should be fine for Game 2
    Coach Randy Wittman said Bradley Beal (ankle) should be fine for Game 2 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beal is getting treatment on his right ankle, but the good news is that he didn't need an MRI to check for damage. He may be listed as questionable for Tuesday, but it sounds like he'll be able to go. Beal was terrific with 28 points on Sunday. If he's out, expect Otto Porter, Garrett Temple and Martell Webster to get more minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: J.J. Barea hoping for $3M annually
    J.J. Barea is hoping to sign with the Mavs on a multi-year deal that pays $3 million annually, a source told ESPN Dallas.

    Advice: Barea said it would be easier for the Mavs to keep him this time, and that translates to the fact that Dallas won't have to overpay him to keep him now that his free-agent stock is significantly lower. It would be a surprise if Barea got more than a two-year offer from any team, including Dallas, so he may have to be a little more realistic about his contract desires. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal walking without a limp Monday
    Updating a previous item, Bradley Beal was walking "without a noticeable limp" on Monday.

    Advice: This is good news considering Beal's availability for Game 2 remains up in the air, but all signs point to him playing right now. Just like John Wall's wrist injury, Beal's ankle injury looked a lot worse than initially anticipated. Although the Wiz Kids are dinged up, it sure seems like the backcourt will be good to go for Game 2 vs. Atlanta. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Curry officially crowned NBA MVP
    Stephen Curry has officially been named the 2014-15 NBA MVP.

    Advice: Chef Curry is indeed cooking with the pot. After unofficial word slipped out on Sunday, the league wasted no time in making the announcement official on Monday. James Harden finished second, LeBron James finished third and Russell Westbrook finished fourth with Anthony Davis (fifth) and Chris Paul (sixth) rounding out the order. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerel McNeal to play summer league w/ Suns
    Jerel McNeal is expected to play in summer league with the Suns.

    Advice: "I'll probably end up doing Summer League with Phoenix and just use that as another opportunity to show what I can do and go do what the coaching staff asks. I'll do whatever I need to do to stick around," he said. McNeal is conditionally under contract next season, but he'll have to make an incredible impression this offseason to last beyond training camp. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:25 am
  • Anderson offers lukewarm Nets endorsement
    When asked about his impending free agency, Alan Anderson offered a lukewarm endorsement of his future with the Nets.

    Advice: "I'm free, so..." he said. "I would love to stay in Brooklyn, but I am a free agent. So I will be free." Anderson should have no problem clearing offers north of $3M annually, more than twice what he made in 2014-15. We don't expect him back with the Nets. Rotoworld.com

  • James Young expected to play in summer league
    James Young is expected to play in summer league for the Celtics.

    Advice: The C's other first-round pick this season was barely a blip on the radar screen in his inaugural campaign. Young is still incredibly raw and needs to spend extended time in the weight room before he's capable of making a real impact. Marcus Smart is expected to join him in the action in order to get increased reps at point guard. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:54 am
  • Wesley Matthews' future undecided w/ Blazers
    Blazers GM Neil Olshey wouldn't commit to re-signing Wesley Matthews this offseason.

    Advice: "We know his value to us; we also know he's going to have market value around the league," he said. Matthews is coming off a torn Achilles, and after the Blazers absolutely fell apart without him, his free-agent case looks pretty good despite the injury. He should have no problem getting a variety of multi-year offers, and his future could very well be outside of Portland. If he leaves, the Blazers are going to have a very tough time replacing what he brings to the table. Both the player and the team have now been noncommittal about remaining together. Rotoworld.com

  • Kawhi Leonard struggled mightily vs. Clippers
    Kawhi Leonard hit just 13-of-44 shots over the Spurs' final three games of the first round vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Leonard also only had eight total steals in the seven-game series, and he didn't have one over the final four games. After struggling with a ligament injury in his hand earlier in the season, Leonard was brilliant down the stretch and it helped earn him Defensive Player of the Year honors. It would be shocking if Leonard's restricted free agency ended with anything except him earning a max deal to be the new face of the San Antonio Spurs. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:33 am
  • Danny Green wants to remain with the Spurs
    Danny Green said that he hopes to re-sign with the Spurs this offseason.

    Advice: Green will be an unrestricted free agent, but San Antonio also has to address Kawhi Leonard's free agency as well as a potential new deal for Tim Duncan and/or Manu Ginobili. Green should get some really solid offers in free agency after averaging 11.7 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.4 triples (41.8 percent) on 43.6 percent shooting overall. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:31 am
  • Bradley Beal's status for Game 2 is unknown
    Bradley Beal's (ankle) status for Game 2 vs. Atlanta is unknown.

    Advice: Although X-rays were negative, Beal wouldn't commit to being able to play in Game 2. "I'll just treat it over the next couple days and see how I feel," he said. It's worth noting that Beal has a history of leg injuries and missed time in the regular season due to a stress reaction in his right leg, so the ankle injury should be monitored closely. "That's probably the worst I've ever turned it, honestly," Beal added. Otto Porter could slide into the starting five if Beal has to miss time. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Sunday, 4:45 pm
  • Report: Stephen Curry to earn MVP honors
    Stephen Curry will be named MVP for the 2014-15 season, according to CSN Bay Area.

    Advice: An official announcement is expected to be made this week, possibly as soon as Monday, and it makes sense for him to receive the award prior to Tuesday's Game 2 vs. the Grizzlies. Curry averaged only 32.7 minutes per game this season, yet he beat out MVP candidates like James Harden and LeBron James by leading his team to a league-best 67-15 record. He averaged 23.8 points, 3.6 triples, 4.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 2.0 steals during the regular season, and has somehow been even better in the playoffs. Congrats, Steph. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:18 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 18 points in 38 minutes
    Klay Thompson again got some heavy run for the Warriors during Sunday's Game 1 victory over the Grizzlies, scoring 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting, with six assists, three rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers over 38 minutes.

    Advice: Klay's minutes have risen this postseason, and so has his scoring. He's averaging 23.6 points, 3.6 three-pointers, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.0 block and 2.2 turnovers per game through 38 minutes of action through the first five games of the playoffs, and he shows no signs of slowing down. With the way this game went, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Dubs advance to the Western Conference Finals with a sweep of the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:32 pm
  • Stephen Curry drops 22 points in Game 1 win
    Stephen Curry put up a game-high 22 points during Sunday's Game 1 win over the Grizzlies, adding seven assists, four 3-pointers, four steals, two rebounds and four turnovers through 38 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Warriors won their 21st straight game at Oracle Arena on Sunday, which is now the longest home-game winning streak in Warriors franchise history. Nick Calathes is nowhere near the defender that Mike Conley is, so Curry should have much trouble at all dismantling Memphis' defense. Through the first five games of the playoffs, Curry has compiled averages of 31.4 points, 7.2 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 4.8 three-pointers, and 1.8 steals per game. Stud. Rotoworld.com

  • X-ray on Bradley Beal's right ankle negative
    X-rays taken on Bradley Beal's right ankle came back negative.

    Advice: Beal said that out of all the ankle sprains he's had, this one was the most painful, and he was spotted limping around Washington's locker room after the game. We're going to be considering him questionable for Game 2 on Tuesday, and owners can expect to get more than a few updates between now and then. If he's forced to sit, Otto Porter would be the primary beneficiary. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:53 pm
  • 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

  • Wizards steal Game 1 behind Beal's 28 points
    Bradley Beal (ankle) put up a game-high 28 points (9-of-22 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs) during Washington's impressive Game 1 victory over the Hawks.

    Advice: Beal rounded out Sunday's line with seven rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and one turnover through 40 minutes of action. He briefly left the game after suffering a sprained right ankle, but he was able to return during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter to finish the game. Beal will likely be questionable heading into Tuesday's Game 2, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. If he's forced to sit, Otto Porter would likely slide into the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:37 pm
  • Bradley Beal (ankle) returns to the game
    Bradley Beal (ankle) has returned to the floor to closeout the fourth quarter.

    Advice: This is obviously great news after it looked like his ankle injury may have been more severe, but he may carry a questionable tag into Game 2 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:19 pm
  • Bradley Beal goes down w/ right ankle injury
    Bradley Beal went down with an apparent right ankle injury during Sunday's Game 1 against the Hawks, and he is questionable to return.

    Advice: Beal rolled his ankle upon coming down on Al Horford's foot after a jump shot, and after writhing around in pain on the floor for a bit, he slowly limped his way back to the Wizard's locker room with tears in his eyes. It would be a shame if Beal can't return as he was a major part of the Wizards' second-half run, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:03 pm
  • 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
    Sunday, 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

    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

  • 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

  • Nicolas Batum already focusing for next year
    Nicolas Batum said that he plans on getting a lot more rest this summer in order to get his body right for next season.

    Advice: "I don't think I'll touch a basketball for the next two or three weeks," Batum said. "I'll fly back to France next week. It will [be] time to just relax and free my mind. Then I'll get back on the court and focus on my game and my body. I want to be ready for next year." Batum will play with the French team in EuroBasket this summer, but he won't join the team until August in order to fully recover. Batum was very disappointing this season with averages of 9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.4 3-pointers while shooting just 40.0 percent from the field, but he will be a bounce-back candidate leading into fantasy drafts next season.

  • 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

  • Wesley Matthews hoping to return to Portland
    Wesley Matthews (Achilles) said that his "perfect situation" would be for him to return to Portland next season.

    Advice: "So much stuff can happen between now and when free agency starts," Matthews said. "Ideally, perfect situation, yeah. Who doesn't want to go for the perfect situation?" Before suffering a season-ending torn Achilles, Matthews posted averages of 15.9 points, 3.7 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.9 3-pointers per game and was an integral part of Portland's team. It will be interesting to see how much his injury will impact his stock in free agency, but he shouldn't have any shortage of suitors on July 1. For what it's worth, Matthews wants to resume playing basketball in August, so his Achilles must be progressing rapidly. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Green posts massive stat line vs. LAC
    Danny Green had a very impressive game during a tough 111-109 loss to the Clippers in Game 7 on Saturday, scoring 16 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, five blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: While he wasn't great off the ball on defense, his on-ball D was tremendous. Green was one of just six players in NBA history to average at least two blocks, one steal and one block (qualifiers for minutes) in a season. He was a fantasy monster and will be again next season. You won't be able to get him in the last few rounds this time, though. Tony Parker also had a good game tonight with 20 points, five boards, five assists and one steal. Rotoworld.com

  • Kawhi Leonard drops 13 points in sub-par game
    Kawhi Leonard scored 13 points on 5-of-13 from the field with 10 rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: It wasn't his best game and he didn't do a great job defending in this series. Leonard attempted 16 shots per game in the postseason in 36 minutes per outing, which bodes well for his prospects next season. Coach Gregg Popovich kept his word last year that he'd use Kawhi more in offensive sets this season, so expect him to be a huge part of the offense next season. He's obviously a first-round target in fantasy drafts and there's really nothing wrong with grabbing him in the top five at this point. 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

  • Mike Dunleavy avoids suspension for Game 1
    The NBA gave Mike Dunleavy a Flagrant 1 foul for his hit on Michael Carter-Williams during Game 6, but he will not be suspended.

    Advice: Dunleavy popped Michael Carter-Williams and later hit Giannis Antetokounmpo above the neck, but the league obviously didn't view either play as malicious. He finished Round 1 on a high note with 20 points, four rebounds and five assists, and will look to keep it going vs. the Cavaliers on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Kawhi Leonard has a really bad night in loss
    Kawhi Leonard had one of his worst games in a long time during a loss to the Clippers on Thursday, making 3-of-15 from the field for 12 points with seven rebounds, two assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: He's coming off a sub-par game from Tuesday night and most of his shots were not even really close. Leonard was easily the best Spur for the first four games of the series with some very efficient scoring. Now, he'll really need to get it figured out for Game 7 in Los Angeles on Saturday.

  • Jimmy Butler scores 16, Bulls win 120-66
    Jimmy Butler scored 16 points during an series-clinching 120-66 win against the Bucks on Thursday, adding two rebounds, five assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This Game 6 win in Milwaukee was the biggest win in a series-clinching game in NBA postseason history. Pau Gasol was effective with 19 points, eight boards and two assists while Joakim Noah also had a nice line with 11 points, 10 boards and two dimes. The Bulls will now take on the Cavs with their team as healthy as ever while the Cavs are going to be missing Kevin Love (shoulder) for the entire series while J.R. Smith (suspension) is out for the first two games. Rotoworld.com

    Mike Dunleavy was on fire during the first half against the Bucks on Thursday, making 5-of-7 from the field for 20 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He got into it with Michael Carter-Williams and Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was ejected for a really bad foul today. Dunleavy does have an outside chance to be suspended for Game 1 against the Cavs. If that happens, Tony Snell and Nikola Mirotic would get more minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Wesley Matthews says he'll be back by August
    Wesley Matthews stated during his exit interviews that he expects to resume playing basketball in August.

    Advice: August is a bit of an aggressive timetable for such a serious injury, but he did say that rehab has been going well and that he's feeling good. Still, players tend to be overly optimistic in projecting their timetables for recovery, and we'd rather hear something from Portland's medical staff before truly projecting his tentative return date. Matthews will be a free agent this offseason, and it'll be interesting to see what kind of salary he can command on the open market coming off a torn Achilles. He'll make for a risky selection in next year's fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Nicolas Batum has no plans for wrist surgery
    Nicolas Batum stated during his exit interview that he has no plans to undergo wrist surgery this offseason.

    Advice: Batum also said that this was his "toughest season," and his numbers would agree with that statement as he averaged just 9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 steals per game on a career-low 40.0 percent shooting from the field. While Batum struggled to find his shot this season, his across-the-board contributions still had him turning in mid-round value, and we'll be expecting a bounce-back year during the 2015-16 season. He could slide in fantasy drafts next year due to his statistical decline this year, which would make him a fantastic value pick. Rotoworld.com

  • Nicolas Batum takes blame for bad season
    Nicolas Batum called the 2014-15 season his "worst year" after the Trail Blazers lost their playoff series to the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: After a season during which he averaged 9.4 points, 5.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers, Batum said he understood the blame should fall on him. "I understand that,'' Batum said. "There were huge expectations. I felt we could do something special this season, collectively and personally. So I understand. Since I signed this contract, the first two years I was OK. This one, like I said, was my first bad one. But I understand why people get mad. I'm the first one to get mad at myself.'' While his numbers were a bit depressed this season, Batum is being a tad hard on himself and should be able to rebound to become a top-35 fantasy player again in 2015-16. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 6:31 am
  • Nicolas Batum goes 2-of-12 from the field
    Nicolas Batum had another poor shooting performance in Game 5 vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday, going just 2-of-12 from the field on his way to six points, 10 boards, seven assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Batum finished the series with averages of 14.2 points, 5.2 assists, 8.6 boards and 2.6 3-pointers, but he shot just 34.3 percent from the field over that span. Batum had a rather disappointing 2014-15 campaign, but his troublesome wrist could have definitely been a major reason why. He often lacks confidence and tends to hesitate a lot before shooting, but hopefully he will be able to bounce back stronger than ever for next season. The offseason should do wonders for his ailing wrist and back. 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.

    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 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

    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

  • Butler says he's focusing too much on offense
    Jimmy Butler stated after Monday's Game 5 loss to the Bucks that he's been worrying too much about his offense, and that he needs to step it up on the defensive end.

    Advice: "I'm supposed to be the prime-time defensive guy, and I haven't been guarding a soul," said Butler. "I've been worried about offense too much, and I need to change that quickly or it's going to be my fault." That's a bit of an overly harsh criticism from Butler considering he's been holding his opponents to 34.7 percent shooting from the field, but it's admirable that he putting some of the blame on himself for the Bulls' losses. Chicago will look to close out their series against the Bucks on Thursday in Milwaukee. Butler will continue to see a ridiculous amount of minutes for the Bulls, and while he’ll spend more time focusing on defense, he’ll still be a go-to guy on offense. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Tuesday, 11:17 am
  • Trevor Ariza says Rockets ready for Game 5
    Trevor Ariza promised the Rockets would have a bounce-back effort in Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: After a lackluster effort in Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Mavericks, Ariza promised there would be no Game 5 repeat. "They played harder than we did," Ariza said. "Tuesday, that won't happen again." Ariza has seen his numbers dip in the postseason as he's only averaging 9.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers on 29.7 percent shooting from the field, so we'll look for him to fulfill his promised breakout against the Mavs on Tuesday.

  • 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

  • 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

    Otto Porter is benefiting from having Paul Pierce as his mentor with the Wizards this season.

    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." Porter played at least 26 minutes in every game of the first round and appears to finally be coming out of his shell at the right time--especially on the defensive end. Rotoworld.com

    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

  • Ramon Sessions hits career-high three triples
    Ramon Sessions made a career-high three 3-pointers in 24 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 15 points with two boards and three assists to help the Wizards advance to the Eastern Conference semifinals.

    Advice: Sessions shot 21.4 percent from deep while playing for the Kings this season. Since joining a Wizards' offense with superior ball movement, he's made 40.6 percent of his 3-pointers and was a sterling 5-of-9 from deep in the first round. The Wizards have Sessions under contract for $2.2 million next season, but fantasy owners still shouldn't expect more than 0.5 triples from the 8-year veteran. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Green scoreless, shoots 0-of-6 Sunday
    Danny Green failed to connect on his six 3-point attempts in Game 4, going scoreless with two rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Five of Green's 3-pointers were of the 'uncontested' variety, meaning no Clippers' defender was within 3.5 feet of him, yet he still came up empty in the tough home loss. He's now averaging 6.5 points on 29.0 percent shooting in the series. Rotoworld.com

    Kawhi Leonard followed up Friday's career game with another sparkling performance on Sunday, finishing with 26 points, three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: He reached the 40-minute mark for only the third time this season and continues to establish himself as a go-to offensive weapon in addition to being the league's Defensive Player of the Year. A pair of clutch 3-pointers from Kawhi kept his team competitive down the stretch, but the Spurs' defeat means they've again ceded homecourt advantage to the Clippers. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers erupts for 16 points in 17 mins
    Austin Rivers was fantastic for the Clippers during their Game 4 win over the Spurs on Sunday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-8 shooting through just 17 minutes of action.

    Advice: As per usual, Rivers didn't do much aside from score (one assist, one steal, and one turnover), but he did give the Clippers' bench a major lift, and he was a big part of LA's win today. Rivers has actually been coming on for the Clippers lately, scoring in double figures in his last two outings, but he's still not much of a fantasy option as scoring is his only asset. It'll be very interesting to see if he can have a repeat performance during Game 5 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    Kyrie Irving put up a double-double as the Cavs swept the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 24 points (8-of-19 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), with 11 rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block through 43 minutes of action.

    Advice: Kyrie was fantastic through his first-career playoff series, averaging 23.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game. He and LeBron James scored or assisted on 27 of the Cavs 29 fourth-quarter field goals through their first-round series against the Celtics, and he should continue to put up quality numbers throughout the playoffs. Chicago is likely going to be Cleveland's second-round opponent, so get ready for some electrifying basketball as Kyrie goes toe-to-toe against a surging Derrick Rose. Rotoworld.com

  • Nicolas Batum sinks six treys in Game 3 loss
    Nicolas Batum was on fire from beyond the arc in Portland's Game 3 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday, sinking six 3-pointers on 12 attempts.

    Advice: He finished the game with 27 points, six boards and four assists, but it wasn't enough to keep the Grizzlies from capturing a 3-0 series lead. Batum has been hesitant on his jumpers all season (mostly 3-pointers), so it was nice to see him in attack mode tonight. The Blazers will need Batum to continue to be aggressive if they have any hope of competing with the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com

    Nick Calathes stepped up for the Grizzlies down the stretch during their Game 3 win over the Blazers on Saturday, scoring 13 points with four boards, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    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.
