  • Cole the man for the job defending Curry
    Norris Cole scored 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench in Monday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: Cole made some key buckets but really his importance is on the defensive end, where he's the only guy that can stay in the same zip code as Stephen Curry. If the Pelicans are going to keep pushing the Warriors, they'll need to increase both Cole and Dante Cunningham's minutes (18) to match up with this Warriors squad. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday (leg) won't play on Monday
    Jrue Holiday (leg) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: There should be more minutes going to Norris Cole with Jrue out of the lineup. The Pelicans gave Holiday 21 minutes in Game 1, so they're probably regretting that. Holiday should be considered questionable to play in Game 3. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans are still GTDs
    Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are still game-time decisions to face the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: They are both getting treatment and are on track to play right now. Both players also have said they're planning on playing today. We'll look for another update as we approach the 10:30 EDT start time. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday says he's expected to play
    Jrue Holiday (leg) said on Monday morning he feels fine and expects to play against the Warriors.

    Advice: ''I'm all right, I'm going to make it,'' Holiday said. Coach Monty Williams said Tyreke Evans and Holiday "are pretty much the same situation," but Holiday's comments contradict that slightly. We probably won't get an update until around 9:00 EDT tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach LaVine needs to get stronger to play SG
    Coach Flip Saunders said Zach LaVine will have to get stronger to play shooting guard next season.

    Advice: LaVine also said that's a focus for him in the offseason. He was outstanding around the rim and from deep to close the season, so he'll be someone worth watching in the offseason. For now, he's not someone most fantasy owners will want to target in a standard fantasy draft. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday (leg) game-time vs. Warriors
    Jrue Holiday (leg) is questionable to play in Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He'll be a game-time decision. Holiday is experiencing soreness in his leg, a common theme over the last two seasons as he's dealt with a stress reaction. If the point guard does play, he'll likely be limited to right around 15-20 minutes of action. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris questionable to play in Game 2
    Devin Harris (toe) is questionable to play in Game 2 vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Harris aggravated his toe injury in Game 1, and then later admitted the tape job was an issue for his second toe, so it's unlikely to be a pretty picture inside of his shoe right now. Regardless, Harris' availability is obviously up in the air, and if he sits, J.J. Barea would see more action off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams wins Sixth Man of the Year
    Lou Williams was named the NBA's 2014-15 Sixth Man of the Year on Monday.

    Advice: Isaiah Thomas finished second in the voting, and Jamal Crawford rounded out the top three. There was a darkhorse case to be made for Andre Iguodala, but he finished fourth in the voting. It's been a pretty good year for Sweet Lou after being traded for John Salmons and Lucas Nogueira last summer. Williams finished the regular season with averages of 15.5 points, 1.1 steals and 1.9 triples on 40.4 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:17 am
  • Kirk Hinrich will not play Monday vs. Bucks
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks in Game 2.

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

  • C.J. McCollum starts for short-handed Blazers
    C.J. McCollum (sprained left ankle) returned to the Blazers' starting lineup during Sunday's road loss, going 1-of-8 from the field to finish with two points, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

    Advice: McCollum will continue to start until Arron Afflalo (shoulder) returns, so he may earn another start at SG during Game 2. He said he "feels great" physically and logged 37 minutes tonight, though his lousy shooting was part of the reason Portland trailed by 24 points heading into the fourth quarter. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:56 pm
  • Beno Udrih blows up for 20/7/7 in Game 1 win
    Beno Udrih caught fire vs. the Blazers, making his first six shots to finish with 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds and seven assists in only 24 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Grizzlies roared out to a 19 point lead at halftime and never looked back, aided by Udrih's huge night -- he's the first bench player since Nick Van Exel in 2003 to notch at least 20 points, seven boards and seven assists in a playoff game. A superior regular-season record gave Memphis home-court advantage despite being the No. 5 seed vs. the No. 4 seed Blazers, and they could take a commanding 2-0 series lead if they win again at the FedEx Forum on Wednesday.

    Sunday, 7:52 pm
  • C.J. McCollum (ankle) starting vs. Grizzlies
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) will start Sunday's Game 1 vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Allen Crabbe will shift to the bench as a result, leaving Portland with a starting lineup of Damian Lillard, McCollum, Nic Batum, LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:57 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) questionable for Game 2
    Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Kirk Hinrich (knee) is improving, but he's unsure about his status for Game 2 against the Bucks on Monday.

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

  • Garrett Temple gets shots up during practice
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) got a lot of shots up during the Wizards' practice on Sunday, and there's a chance he can return later in their first round series against the Raptors.

    Advice: Temple isn't a major part of the Wizards' rotations, and considering he's been sidelined since March 9, he would likely return in a very limited role. Ramon Sessions will be Washington's primary backup point guard for as long as Temple is sidelined, but he's not going to get enough minutes to matter in almost any format. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight's ankle surgery was minor
    Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said that Brandon Knight's arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle "was a minor procedure".

    Advice: "It was a minor procedure," Babby said. "There was an anterior flap [of cartilage] in his ankle that caused irritation. We expect a full recovery." This confirms what we originally thought, and while there is no known timetable, Knight likely won't be on the shelf for more than 3-4 weeks. Knight is set to become a restricted free agent this summer, but all signs point to the Suns retaining his services. We will provide additional updates as needed. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris had issue with tape on his toe
    Devin Harris (toe) said the tape job on his left big toe was a problem with his second toe.

    Advice: He had surgery on that toe back in the summer of 2013, so the Mavs will have to figure out a new way to wrap Harris' toe in Game 2. This doesn't sound quite as bad as a normal aggravation, but Harris will likely be limited in some capacity for the rest of the series. J.J. Barea will play a bit more. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Terry scores 16 points vs. the Mavs
    Jason Terry scored 16 points on 6-of-10 from the field against the Mavs on Saturday with four boards, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: The JET had a little redemption against his former team and you could see it in his eye that this game meant a little more to him. He's going to do almost all his work off the ball and had seven attempts from deep. He'll have a similar role going forward. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris aggravates toe injury vs. HOU
    Devin Harris aggravated his toe injury on Saturday and is doubtful to return.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable to go into this game and he suffered the aggravation in the second half. Harris seemed to be bothered by the injury throughout the game and he could miss some time. If that's the case, J.J. Barea would be looking at more playing time. Harris left the game with two points, two boards and one assist in 10 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    Devin Harris (toe) looks like a go against the Rockets on Saturday.

  • Shaun Livingston gets in the rotation
    Shaun Livingston played 13 minutes off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday with two points and one turnover.

    Advice: Most of the talk heading into this game was that Livingston wasn't going to be in the rotation while Marreese Speights would be, but coach Steve Kerr gave the versatile perimeter guy some minutes. We'll see if that continues, but he obviously won't play more than 20 minutes unless there is a lot of garbage time. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:03 pm
  • Norris Cole plays 34 minutes vs. Warriors
    Norris Cole played 34 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, six assists, one block and no turnovers.

    Advice: Tyreke Evans (knee) said he felt a little pop in his knee, so the Pelicans might have to roll with Cole a little more going forward. He had a few good games with the Heat in the postseason, but Cole hasn't exactly been reliable. The Pelicans will have an update on Evans on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Jrue Holiday gets 21 minutes
    Jrue Holiday played 21 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with four points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Pelicans needed a little more out of Holiday today because Tyreke Evans could not return from a knee bruise. Holiday didn't play in the final five minutes of this game, so the team likely went into today's game with a minutes restriction in mind due to his leg issues. He'll likely be in the 22-25 minute range in Game 2 on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams' late surge isn't enough
    Lou Williams made 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points against the Wizards on Saturday, adding three rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had just two points going into the fourth quarter and helped get this game to overtime. Williams was also guarding John Wall in this game, which created some problems for the Raptors late and caused some defensive breakdowns. Williams will struggle with consistency going forward, but he'll likely have a huge game or two in this series. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:53 pm
  • C.J. McCollum, Nicolas Batum are probable
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) and Nicolas Batum (knee) are probable to play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

    Advice: They're both already practicing in full and have said they're definitely playing. With Arron Afflalo (shoulder) not expected to play, these two will be the primary wing options for the Blazers. The bad news is that Tony Allen (hamstring) will be ready to roll, so it won't be easy for the Blazers to score from the perimeter. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:29 pm
  • Kyle Lowry fouls out with seven points
    Kyle Lowry fouled out in 33 minutes of action against the Wizards on Saturday, making 2-of-10 from the field for seven points with eight boards, four assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: What an horrible game from Lowry. His fouls were lazy at times and he didn't do a good job on the offensive end whatsoever. He was 1-of-8 on his shots from beyond three feet today and he'll need to attack better. Of course, John Wall is a better defender than most people give him credit for. If the Raptors get this kind of Lowry in the playoffs, they'll be extinct after the first round. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight had surgery on ankle Friday
    Brandon Knight underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle on Friday and he is expected to make a full recovery.

    Advice: We don't have many details on the surgery, but it's likely a minor procedure and he will probably be on the shelf for about 3-4 weeks. Knight missed the final 11 games of the season because of his ankle, so it will be interesting to see if this has an impact on his market during restricted free agency. Knight is "optimistic" about returning to Phoenix, and it seems unlikely that they would let him walk after giving up so many assets to acquire him this season. We will provide further details as soon as we know more. Rotoworld.com

    Darius Morris (illness) returned to practice on Saturday.

  • Jerryd Bayless, Jared Dudley will play on Sat
    Jerryd Bayless (sore neck) and Jared Dudley (back) will play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Bayless missed Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Celtics because of his sore neck, but he has since returned to practice and was never in danger of missing this contest. He averages over 22 minutes per game off the bench, and his return will likely push rookie Tyler Ennis out of the rotation. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks, and it is unclear if he will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday.

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

  • C.J. McCollum goes through a workout
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) went through a workout on Friday.

    Advice: He looks fine and should be ready to go for Sunday's game in Memphis. McCollum was terrific down the stretch and he should be able to get minutes close to 30. He'll be a sneaky player to watch during the playoffs. Additionally, McCollum is shaping up to be a fantasy sleeper next season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:04 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) downgraded to questionable
    Devin Harris (toe) has been downgraded to questionable for Game 1 against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: Rick Carlisle said on Thursday that Harris would play, so we're going to assume he's closer to probable than questionable. However, if he's forced to sit, it will open up minutes for J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton. Barea makes for the better daily league target sans Harris. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich (knee) doesn't practice Friday
    Kirk Hinrich (knee) was unable to practice Friday, and his status is uncertain for Game 1 on Saturday against the Bucks.

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

  • Darius Morris (flu) doesn't practice Friday
    Darius Morris (flu) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: We're going to be considering Morris questionable for Game 1 on Sunday, but he's a negligible part of the Nets' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications if he's unavailable. Rotoworld.com

  • Knight 'optimistic' about returning to PHO
    Brandon Knight said he was "optimistic" about returning to Phoenix next season.

    Advice: "If it can be quick and easy, that's the best thing," Knight said regarding his impending restricted free agency. "You don't want to go through a fight or anything like that or you don't want to drag it out as well. Definitely don't want anything that leads up to training camp. For me, it's just about doing what's best for me and my family and the Suns will do the same. I'm optimistic about the situation. I like it here." Given that the Suns gave up a first-round pick in addition to Tyler Ennis and Miles Plumlee, it would seem likely they do what they can to match any offers on Knight. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris (toe) will play on Saturday
    Updating a previous report, Mavs' head coach Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris (turf toe) will play in Game 1 of the playoffs on Saturday.

  • Garrett Temple (hamstring) out for Game 1
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) did not practice on Thursday, and he will not play when the Wizards kick off their series against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: Temple said that he's hopeful to play at some point during the playoffs, but he's not a major piece to Washington's puzzle, and he'd be unlikely to earn many minutes even when he's eventually cleared to return. Roman Sessions and Will Bynum will continue to get a bulk of the backup point guard minutes for the Wizards, but with John Wall healthy, they're going to be nearly invisible on the stat sheet.

    Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris (toe) looks "ready to go" for Game 1 of the playoffs.

  • Jrue Holiday scores 11 in 25 minutes
    Jrue Holiday returned to action on Wednesday and had 11 points and four assists in 25 minutes of Wednesday's win.

    Advice: The Pelicans are hoping he can get back into a groove for the playoffs, but he's clearly not 100 percent yet after returning from a leg injury. The good news is he played and should be able to get some rest before the playoffs start this weekend. Tyreke Evans had 19 points and 11 assists, Eric Gordon scored 14, while Norris Cole came off the bench to score 13 points. Anthony Davis led the way with 31 points and 13 boards, and the Pelicans will face the Warriors in Round 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry finishes strong vs. Hornets
    Kyle Lowry had a great game against the Hornets on Wednesday with 26 points, four rebounds, seven assists, three steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He hasn't been himself since the injury, so the Raptors have to be pleased with this encouraging finish. In his previous three games since his return, Lowry averaged just 12.7 points, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys on 28.3 percent from the field. If the Raptors are going to make any noise in the postseason, Lowry will have to be at his best. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams gets a DNP-CD on Wednesday
    Lou Williams was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Dwane Casey said he was going to limit Williams and he rested him the entire way. Williams had a terrific season and he's one of the three players most likely to win Sixth Man of the Year along with Isaiah Thomas and Andre Iguodala. He'll be a very important piece for the Raptors.

  • Devin Harris (toe) expects to play in Game 1
    Devin Harris is dealing with turf toe in his left big toe, but he expects to be ready for the first game of the playoffs.

    Advice: Harris won't play on Wednesday and he recently had a shot to calm the inflammation in his bruised and swollen toe. He had toe surgery during the offseason but it was a different digit on the same foot, and the good news is that he doesn't sound concerned about any long-term damage. His absence leaves more playing time for J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    Jrue Holiday is active to face the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Holiday played well on Sunday with 17 points, so he certainly can help the Pelicans tonight in what's basically a must win. Still, he'll have a minutes cap and isn't a great option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams will have a minutes restriction
    Lou Williams will have a minutes restriction against the Hornets on Wednesday.

  • Kyle Lowry's still off, shoots 6-of-20 vs BOS
    Kyle Lowry struggled from the field on Tuesday, hitting 6-of-20 shots to finish with 16 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers.

    Advice: He shot 3-of-14 on Saturday and admitted that he's rusty after missing seven games with a back injury. "My rhythm is still off," he said. "I am missing shots I know I can make. They're going to fall and I'm not going to stop shooting." Toronto needs both Lowry and DeMar DeRozan to be healthy and aggressive to sustain a playoff run, and owners should double-check both guys' status prior to Wednesday's season finale. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. McCollum (ankle) ruled out vs. Mavericks
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Blazers are locked into the No. 4 seed and McCollum himself called Wednesday's season finale "meaningless," before adding, "It’s probably best to for me to wait until playoffs [start]." Nicolas Batum (knee) is also unavailable on Wednesday, which leaves the short-handed Blazers relying on Allen Crabbe and Alonzo Gee. Neither guy is appealing for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

  • Garrett Temple (hamstring) out Tuesday
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

  • C.J. McCollum (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: "I want to play as many games as I can," said McCollum. "But obviously it’s the last game of the season, it’s meaningless, [Dallas] probably won’t play a lot of their starters and main guys then it’s probably best to for me to wait until playoffs [start]." With the fourth seed in the West locked up, it's extremely unlikely the Blazers will risk McCollum potentially aggravating his ankle injury in a meaningless game against the Mavs. We expect him to be on the sidelines tomorrow, and it'll be Alonzo Gee and Allen Crabbe getting all the run they can handle. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday (leg) now questionable Wednesday
    Jrue Holiday (leg) is now being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Even if Holiday is able to give it a go, he's going to be playing on a minutes restriction with a tough matchup against the Spurs, making him far too risky for use in most leagues. Expect another update on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com

    Devin Harris (toe) will not play Wednesday vs. Portland.

    Advice: With Harris unavailable, look for J.J. Barea to pick up most of his minutes sliding into a Sixth Man role for the Mavericks. He's coming off an 18-point game, and he'll have a favorable matchup against a Blazers team that has been decimated by injuries, so he'll certainly be worth a look in daily leagues. Raymond Felton will also have the opportunity for extended minutes, but he's an extremely risky guy to deploy in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Raptors' head coach Dwane Casey is unlikely to rest anyone for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Jrue Holiday (leg) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Holiday is a very talented player, and he was able to put up a quality line through just 15 minutes of action against the Rockets on Sunday, but it's very unlikely he'll be able to repeat that performance in limited minutes with a tough matchup against San Antonio. He's an extremely risky guy to own in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Knight was playing like an All-Star in Milwaukee, but his numbers took a pretty big hit when he was forced to play second-fiddle next to Eric Bledsoe in Phoenix. He'll be a restricted free agent when the offseason hits, and it'll be interesting to see how high Phoenix will go to retain him. Eric Bledsoe, Gerald Green, and Archie Goodwin will pick up most of the backcourt minutes tonight, and Green is certainly someone to consider as a cheap plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

  • All LaVine all the time for the Wolves
    Zach LaVine hit just 8-of-24 shots in the Wolves' 100-88 loss to the Pelicans on Monday, but still finished with 24 points, five boards, seven assists and two threes in 45 minutes.

    Advice: It's all LaVine all the time for the Wolves these days and though he might wreck your field goal percentage and turnovers, that's not necessarily a given as he has hit 48.3 percent of his shots over the last four games. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. McCollum (ankle) doesn't need an MRI
    C.J. McCollum (ankle) said his ankle sprain wasn't bad enough to get an MRI.

    Advice: He did say he's not sure if he will play on Wednesday against the Mavs. The Blazers are locked in as the fourth seed, so there's no reason to play C.J. at less than 100 percent. If he's out, Alonzo Gee and Allen Crabbe will get the start on the wings Crabbe is the more interesting fantasy play. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. McCollum out for game on Monday
    C.J. McCollum suffered a left ankle sprain on Monday and will not return.

    Advice: Make it stop! The Blazers are running out of wings right now and they're going to start Alonzo Gee in McCollum's spot for the season half. Nicolas Batum is also out for the game with a knee injury. McCollum has been fantastic, but he might miss Wednesday's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday (leg) out against the Wolves
    Jrue Holiday will not play against the Wolves on Monday night.

    Advice: He had a very good game on Sunday with 17 points, but the Pelicans aren't comfortable with him playing in back-to-backs just yet. Tyreke Evans will handle most of the point guard duties tonight. Expect Holiday to play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Zach Attack: LaVine scores career-high 37
    Zach LaVine scored a career-high 37 points against the Warriors on Saturday during a 110-101 loss, adding nine rebounds, four assists and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had a career high in boards and 3-pointers tonight, too. In his six April games, LaVine averaged 21.0 points, 6.0 boards, 5.5 dimes, 0.5 steals and 1.7 treys on 52.1 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the line. He's made a very impressive 23-of-28 (82.1 percent) of his shots at the rim this month, which account for 30 percent of his shot total. Wolves fans have every right to be excited for next season and LaVine is a must-start player. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. McCollum scores 26 points in start Sat
    C.J. McCollum was phenomenal in a start vs. the Jazz on Saturday, scoring 26 points on 9-of-17 shooting with seven boards, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo (back) isn't expected to return for at least a week or two, so McCollum should be the starter the rest of the way. Regardless, McCollum has stepped up in a big way for Portland, and he has probably earned a lot of trust from head coach Terry Stotts heading into the playoffs. McCollum is a must-own option in all leagues for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Beno Udrih plays 29 minutes vs. Clippers
    Beno Udrih drew the start against the Clippers on Saturday with 14 points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: Mike Conley (foot) was very close to playing tonight, so he has a good chance to be ready for Monday against the Warriors. The Grizzlies, Clippers and Spurs are all sitting at 54-26 with the Rockets just 0.5 games behind them, so Memphis will want Conley to play ASAP. Udrih should be on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry scores 12 with one dime
    Kyle Lowry struggled again on Saturday with 12 points, seven boards, one assist, three steals and one block.

    Advice: He made just 3-of-14 from the field, including eight misses from beyond the arc. Lowry scored just 10 points on Friday and maybe he's not 100 percent yet. The Raptors are off until Tuesday, so the two whole days off should help him. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams scores 29 points vs. Heat
    Lou Williams scored 29 points against the Heat on Saturday with one rebound, two assists and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 17 points in the second quarter, which was more than the Knicks and Magic scored in the second quarter today (15). Williams is really solidifying his chances for Sixth Man of the Year and is scoring in bunches right now. In his last five, he averaged 21.6 points, 2.2 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.6 treys. He's also led the team in scoring 17 times this season. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. McCollum listed as starter for Saturday
    C.J. McCollum is listed as the starter for Saturday's game vs. the Jazz, replacing Arron Afflalo (shoulder).

    Advice: We will warn you that head coach Terry Stotts has been known to change his mind frequently, so we will let you know if something changes. Regardless, with Afflalo set to miss anywhere from 1-2 weeks, McCollum is a must-own player in all leagues for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Kyle Lowry is good to go, Amir confirmed out
    Kyle Lowry is ready to go against the Heat on Saturday while Amir Johnson (ankle) will not play.

    Advice: There was some hope that Amir would give it a go after going through shootaround, but the team would rather just rest him to get him healthy. Lowry should be starting in all leagues tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 3:13 pm
  • Kyle Lowry still on track to play Saturday
    Kyle Lowry is still expected to play against the Heat on Saturday.

    Advice: The Raptors have planned on Lowry playing for tonight. He did say he is dealing with some soreness on Friday, but he fared better than expected. Lowry should be safe to start for now and we'll add an update if any bad news arises. Rotoworld.com
    Apr 11, 12:03 pm
  • Beno scores 20 points in start for Conley
    Beno Udrih started for Mike Conley (foot) on Friday against the Jazz, scoring 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds and just one assist in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Udrih is never a sure bet to be productive when Conley is out but he'll be worth a look if that continues. Conley is day-to-day and has a number of ailments that really do need rest, but the Grizzlies are still in a race for seeding. Rotoworld.com
