  • Dellavedova gets the job done for the Cavs
    Matthew Dellavedova got the job done for the Cavs in Friday's Game 1 win over the Hawks, scoring 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in fill-in duty for Kyrie Irving.

    Advice: Delly played great defense and was aggressive against a shell-shocked Hawks squad. The Cavs might decide to buy some rest for Irving after the way the Hawks looked beaten tonight, so we could see some more big outings for the St. Marys product in DFS formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Terry hits three 3-pointers in 35 min.
    Jason Terry played 35 minutes and hit 3-of-7 shots (all 3-pointers) for nine points and four assists in Thursday's Game 2 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Terry is the starting point guard for the Rockets and that's not likely to change, but he's hit just 13-of-40 shots over his last five games. Avoid him in fantasy playoff lineups if you can, even though his cheap salary is always a bit tempting. Rotoworld.com

  • Shaun Livingston plays just 14 minutes in win
    Shaun Livingston, who had 18 points and a full stat line in Game 1, played just 14 minutes in Thursday's Game 2 win over the Rockets.

    Advice: He hit all four of his shots to finish with eight points, four rebounds and zero turnovers, but will be tough to rely on in fantasy leagues while playing behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. He's probably got another couple nice games coming in these playoffs, but it will be impossible to figure out when they'll happen. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyler Ennis will miss summer league
    Tyler Ennis (shoulder) will miss Summer League after undergoing shoulder surgery.

    Advice: Ennis had surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday, but will likely be ready for training camp as his timetable has been estimated at around eight weeks. We'll keep his progress updated as more news becomes available, but he shouldn't be on any fantasy radars at the moment. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian Roberts eager to improve this summer
    Brian Roberts doesn't know what type of role he will have with the Hornets next season, but he is eager to improve over the summer.

    Advice: "Things were really up-and-down the whole year," Roberts said in regards to his 2014-15 campaign. "I didn’t really find a smooth spot where I could consistently play at the high level I know I can play at. Overall, it was a learning experience and I’m definitely motivated this summer to get after it." Roberts would likely be the backup point guard to Kemba Walker again if Mo Williams leaves in free agency, but Williams' plans aren't clear just yet. Regardless, Roberts' value will likely be limited to deeper leagues as long as Kemba Walker can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Shaun Livingston sparks GSW bench w/ 16 pts
    Shaun Livingston scored a career-best 16 first-half points in Game 1, finishing with 18 points, six rebounds, three assists and one steal to help Golden State earn a 110-106 win.

    Advice: It's terrific to see Livingston thriving at such a high level of competition, having overcome a devastating knee injury that nearly ended his career in 2008. The Warriors defeated the Rockets by double-digit points in all four of their regular-season meetings but they survived a close decision tonight, buoyed by Livingston's efficient 6-of-8 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws.

  • Bucks G Tyler Ennis has shoulder surgery Tues
    Bucks G Tyler Ennis had shoulder surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum, and the Bucks have not yet announced a timetable for his return.

    Advice: The severity of the injury will determine Ennis' return date but full recovery could take eight weeks or more. He should be fine for the start of the 2015-16 season, in other words, but his availability for Summer League is uncertain. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Beverley (wrist) will not play in WCF
    Patrick Beverley (wrist) has reportedly abandoned any hope of suiting up for any games during the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors.

    Advice: "It’s a no-go for the series," a league source told Yahoo Sports on Tuesday. "He’s done trying." Beverley simply doesn't have the mobility or strength in his left wrist to be able to effective on the basketball court, a realization he came to after going through two workouts on Monday. It'll be Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni doing their best to contain this year's MVP, but in the likely event they are unable to do much against Stephen Curry, it's plausible we see Trevor Ariza pick him up.

  • C.J. McCollum won't play in Summer Leagues
    C.J. McCollum said he's going to practice with Portland's Summer League team, but is unlikely to play in any games.

    Advice: McCollum is fresh off a strong finish to the 2014-15 season and will look to use Summer League practices as a way to continue that momentum. He averaged 15.6 points, 1.3 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers during the month of April and could find himself with a much larger role of Wesley Matthews and/or Arron Afflalo leave the Trail Blazers. If that ends up being the case, McCollum could end up being a late-round steal in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Doc Rivers discusses Austin's FA chances
    Coach Doc Rivers said calling Austin Rivers' mom would be his easiest free agent pitch.

    Advice: "I think he loved it here," Doc said. "I even think he liked the coach at times." Obviously, Doc transformed Austin into a capable backup player and his 25-point game on May 8 was one of the best moments of the playoffs. He'll likely be brought back at the minimum next season.

  • Beverley won't play against the Warriors
    Coach Kevin McHale said Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not play against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: "Pat isn’t gong to get the pins out until the fourth or fifth [of June]," McHale said. "It’s hard to play with a pin in your wrist." McHale keeps having to address this issue and has previously said Beverley won't be back in the postseason. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni stepped up against Chris Paul and will have to do it again against Stephen Curry. Rotoworld.com

  • Temple likely to pick up his player option
    Garrett Temple is likely to exercise his player option for next season and remain with the Wizards.

    Advice: Temple isn't guaranteed to find a roster spot on another NBA team if he tests free agency, so this is the smart move on his behalf. He's not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Patrick Beverley (wrist) not likely for WCF
    Patrick Beverley (wrist) is unlikely to return for the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: Beverley is currently in the seventh week of his initial 10-week timetable, and there haven't been any reports up to this point that would suggest Beverley is on the verge of making a return. We have seen some crazy things this postseason with John Wall playing through a very broken wrist, and Mike Conley playing just eight days after major surgery, so we're not going to completely rule him out just yet. However, when coach Kevin McHale was asked if Beverley would be able to return for the playoffs back on May 2, he responded no. We'll let you know if anything changes. Rotoworld.com

  • Terry eager to use his playoff experience
    Jason Terry believes that his Game 7 experience will benefit his teammates.

    Advice: "My biggest advantage is I’ve been in two Game 7s and I’m undefeated," Terry said. "I’m very confident going in. I understand what it takes to come out with a victory, how I have to approach it and hopefully my teammates will feed off of that."He has really stepped up with averages of 11.4 points, 3.6 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games, so the Rockets can feel confident knowing that Terry appears to be ready for the challenge.

  • Shaun Livingston is thrilled with his season
    Shaun Livingston said that his injury history makes this playoff push even more meaningful.

    Advice: "Coming back and having a chance to play a major role on this team, that's what it's about," Livingston said. "We're going to enjoy this tonight, because this is not easy to do. This is my 11th year, and this is the farthest I've been. This is the farthest anybody's [on the team has] been, except [Leandro] Barbosa." Livingston had a brutal knee injury in 2007 and recently had surgery on his toe last summer, but he has been a steady presence off the bench during the Warriors' playoff push. He scored 10 points in 20 minutes during Game 6 on Friday while also adding one rebound and a block. Rotoworld.com

  • Matthew Dellavedova scores 19 in win vs. CHI
    Matthew Dellavedova was the best guard on the floor against the Bulls on Thursday, making 7-of-11 from the field for 19 points with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Kyrie Irving (knee) didn't play in the second half and LeBron James wasn't at his best on offense, but Delly carried the Cavs in the third to put this game out of reach. He also was on top of his game on the defensive end. The Cavs will have a few days off at the very least, so Kyrie might be able to make it back. Still, a ton of credit goes to Dellavedova for tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Matthew Dellavedova starts the second half
    Matthew Dellavedova started the second half for Kyrie Irving (knee).

    Advice: Irving has a big brace on his knee and maybe the Cavs are just being careful because of their double-digit lead. It'll be interesting to see what happens if the Bulls make it close. Rotoworld.com

  • Seth Curry will play for NO at Summer League
    Seth Curry has reportedly committed to playing for the Pelicans during Summer League.

    Advice: He could be fun to watch during Summer League going up against NBA prospects, but there's no fantasy value to be had here. Seth has played in just four NBA games throughout his career, with none of those performances being noteworthy. You may have heard of his brother, however, who is actually pretty darn good at basketball. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Terry says HOU a superpower in making
    Jason Terry said he thinks the Rockets are a superpower in the making.

    Advice: While the Rockets face a 3-2 deficit heading into Thursday's Game 6 against the Clippers, Terry isn't short of confidence when it comes to his team. "When you have a combo like Dwight [Howard] and James {Harden}, the longer they're together, the better they're going to be," Terry said. "They're just right now realizing how good they can be together. Individually, they're great. But together, they're like a superpower. And once they get that belief, it's going to be hard to stop them." The 37-year-old is averaging 12.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 three-pointers in the Clippers series and has become a safe start in fantasy playoff formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramon Sessions invisible in Wall's return
    Ramon Sessions played just 17 minutes and missed all four of his shots for zero points and one assist in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: With John Wall back, despite a broken left hand, Sessions was highly ineffective. Don't use him in DFS if Wall is available to play. Rotoworld.com
