  • Dwight Howard (knee) probable for Game 3
    Dwight Howard (knee) is being listed as probable for Game 3 against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Howard went off for 19 points and 17 rebounds during Game 2's loss, so there's absolutely no reason to think he won't be in uniform for a crucial Game 3 in Houston. His probable tag would suggest he didn't experience any setbacks during his 40 minutes of action on Thursday, and Houston will need all they can get from Dwight if they hope to climb out of their current 0-2 hole.

  • Kris Humphries looking to become a stretch-4
    Kris Humphries stated during a recent interview that he will be looking to expend his range to beyond the 3-point arc this offseason.

    Advice: "I never really worked on shooting threes and stuff. I started working on it this year," said Humphries. "I had a lot of success in the last month [practicing] or so I really working on it every day, continue to work on it next year, add to my game." Wizards' head coach Randy Wittman has been gravitating towards playing smaller and faster with shooters at the four-spot, and current starting center Marcin Gortat has expressed a desire to play alongside a stretch-four, so if Humphries wants more consistent minutes this is a part of his game he'll need to develop.

  • Dwight Howard plays well despite knee injury
    Dwight Howard not only played through his sore left knee, but went off for 19 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and a block, hitting 8-of-11 shots and 3-of-7 free throws in Thursday's tough loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Howard looked great, but so did the Warriors' Andrew Bogut, and you can expect these two to continue to battle each other throughout this series. Yes, there's a chance that Howard's knee could swell up and leave him questionable for Saturday's Game 3 in Houston, but if tonight was any indication, it would be very surprising if he's in street clothes on Saturday.

  • Andrew Bogut plays a great Game 2 for GSW
    Andrew Bogut, still not 100 percent while dealing with the flu, played 31 minutes and hit 7-of-9 shots for 14 points, eight rebounds, four assists and five blocks in Thursday's win over the Rockets.

    Advice: He battled Stephen Curry for tonight's game MVP honors and probably deserves the nod given the fact he needed an IV after Game 1 on Tuesday. Bogut is going to be a factor the rest of the way and makes for a nice value play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard will play for Rockets
    Dwight Howard will play for the Rockets on Thursday night for Game 2.

    Advice: He tested his sore left knee just moments ago and looked pretty good doing so. Clint Capela will come off the bench now that it appears that Howard will start. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:33 pm
  • Dwight Howard to be a true game-time call
    Dwight Howard (knee) will be a true game-time decision for Game 2 on Thursday.

    Advice: "Dwight hasn't warmed up yet, so I don't know," coach Kevin McHale said. We'll be tracking this one until tip, but we might not find out until moments before the game starts. If he's out, Clint Capela would likely start, but expect to see Terrence Jones log major minutes at center. That also opens up time for Josh Smith. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:44 pm
  • Dwight Howard (knee) a game-time decision
    Rockets head coach Kevin McHale said that Dwight Howard (knee) went through about half of Thursday's shootaround, and he will be a game-time decision for Game 2 vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Howard has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 sprain of the inside ligament of his left knee, although he was spotted making post moves and dunking during shootaround, which is a major improvement from yesterday when James Harden said he could barely bend his leg. However, Howard did not do any running during shootaround, so a key to his playing status for Game 2 will be how his knee responds to pregame sprints. If Dwight can't go, Clint Capela will start, with Josh Smith and Terrence Jones likely logging heavy minutes. Houston's medical staff said that players typically would need 7-10 days to recover from a knee sprain, so if he plays, he's definitely not going to be 100 percent. Rotoworld.com

  • Marc Gasol first Grizz on All-NBA 1st team
    Marc Gasol became the first Grizzlies player to be named to the All-NBA first team.

    Advice: Gasol finished the 2014-15 regular season with averages of 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals per game and will now enter free agency as one of the most coveted players on the market. While Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace is confident Gasol will be back in Memphis next year, fantasy owners can feel good about selecting the big man in the first round no matter what uniform he's wearing for the 2015-16 season.

  • LeBron lauds Tristan Thompson's defense
    LeBron James said Tristan Thompson is one of the best pick-and-roll defenders in the NBA.

    Advice: James said Thompson's biggest defensive improvement this season has been his communication and that has led to the 24-year-old becoming one of the best pick-and-roll defenders in the league.Thompson has been a nightly double-double threat since entering the starting lineup for Kevin Love (shoulder) and he's now averaging 12.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks on 59.0 percent shooting from the field in his last five games.

  • Clips will offer DeAndre Jordan max contract
    Clippers vice president and head coach Doc Rivers said the team will offer DeAndre Jordan a max contract.

    Advice: While Jordan has said he'll test open market and reportedly has some issues with Chris Paul, it may be tough for him to pass up the extra dollars that the Clippers can offer. Jordan can make around $109 million over five years with the Clips, while other teams will only be able to offer him $81 million over four years. It's no sure thing that Jordan stays with the Clippers, but this makes it all the more likely he won't be wearing a new uniform next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut needed post-game IV on Tuesday
    Andrew Bogut (illness) needed a post-game IV after Game 1 against the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bogut said he played "horribly" in Game 1 as he dealt with the flu and required an IV after playing 16 minutes in the game. Bogut may see less playing time in the series if Dwight Howard's knee injury is serious, but he doesn't seem in danger of missing any games due to the flu and will be an important defensive piece for the Warriors if Howard is able to suit up.

  • Paul Millsap fouls out, scores 13 points
    Paul Millsap fouled out in 38 minutes against the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists and one block.

    Advice: With DeMarre Carroll (knee) going down, Millsap is now going to have to guard LeBron James more often, which isn't a bad thing for the Hawks defense. However, all that extra effort on the defensive end could take away from Millsap's offensive game. Regardless, his minutes will be close to 40. Rotoworld.com

  • Jusuf Nurkic has successful left knee surgery
    Jusuf Nurkic had successful surgery to repair a partially torn left patellar tendon on Wednesday.

    Advice: An earlier timetable says Nurkic will miss the next 3-4 months, so he should be ready for camp. The Nuggets may look to address their frontcourt with the seventh pick in the draft, which could potentially hurt Nurkic's numbers. He averaged 6.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.10 blocks in 62 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard said he was playing with pain
    Dwight Howard (knee) said he was playing with pain on Tuesday night.

    Advice: "It was very painful to play last night and coach just felt like it was best that I sit out," Howard said. "I'll just listen to my body. This is gonna be on how I feel. If I feel like I can tolerate it and play through it, then I will. I'm going to do whatever I can to help this team but I can't help the team if I'm hurt." There doesn't appear to be too much optimism right now and he'll likely be a game-time decision. Howard's "bad" knee this season was his right one, but he did have some left knee issues as well. We'll get an update tomorrow. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:58 pm
  • Dwight Howard diagnosed with a left knee sprain
    An MRI revealed Dwight Howard suffered a left knee sprain on Tuesday and he remains questionable to play on Thursday.

    Advice: It doesn't appear to be a serious sprain, but this is slightly worse news than his previous diagnosis of a bruise. In other words, there is some ligament damage to his knee, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll miss time. If he is out, Clint Capela will continue to get significant minutes while Terrence Jones would also play center a lot more. The Rockets should have an update at Thursday's shootaround. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:11 pm
  • Marreese Speights (calf) out for Game 2
    Marreese Speights (calf) will not play against the Rockets in Game 2 on Thursday.

    Advice: He is expected to be out for the first five games of the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors got a lot out of Festus Ezeli in Game 1 and they'll likely look to him again. Rotoworld.com

  • Celtics have some interest in McGee
    The Celtics still have some interest in signing JaVale McGee this summer.

    Advice: The Celtics had some interest in McGee when he was released back in March, but nobody picked him up. McGee won't have many suitors this summer and may only get a one-year deal. Rotoworld.com

  • AD, Jimmy, Bogut, Wall & Duncan make 2nd team
    Anthony Davis, Jimmy Butler, John Wall, Tim Duncan and Andrew Bogut were named to the NBA's All-Defensive Second Team on Wednesday.

    Advice: The surprising omission here is Rudy Gobert, who helped the Jazz become the toughest interior defense after the break. However, he is a center, so it would have been tough for him to make it over DeAndre Jordan or Bogut. Although, it's not a tough case to make, especially since he played 575 more minutes than Bogut this season. Anthony Davis led the NBA in blocks per game, but his numbers with on-ball defense don't match up with Kawhi Leonard and Draymond Green, the First Team forwards. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:27 am
  • Dwight Howard is listed as questionable
    Dwight Howard (bruised left knee) is listed as questionable for Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: Howard is expected to have a precautionary MRI on Wednesday, so we should have another update once we know the results. He was clearly hobbling in Game 1 on Tuesday and finished with just seven points and 13 boards, so hopefully the injury doesn't linger throughout the series. If Howard is unable to play in Game 2, Clint Capela, Terrence Jones and Josh Smith will all see increased roles. Rotoworld.com

  • Kosta Koufos wants to be a starter
    Kosta Koufos, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, wants to be a starter in the NBA.

    Advice: Koufos was a very solid backup in Memphis behind Marc Gasol, and he will be sure to command plenty of interest on the open market. The Grizzlies will obviously make re-signing Gasol their top priority, so it's possible that they are forced to part ways with Koufos. If he lands in an ideal situation, Koufos could be a name to watch heading into fantasy drafts next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Grizzlies GM believes Marc Gasol will stay
    Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace said he "firmly" believes that Marc Gasol will be back in Memphis next season.

    Advice: Gasol has been playing his cards close to his chest, but it's hard to imagine him leaving Memphis. For obvious reasons, Gasol will be one of the biggest names on the open market, and teams such as the Spurs and Knicks will likely go after him aggressively. This story will only heat up as we approach July 1, so be sure to check back for all the latest updates. Regardless, Gasol will be an elite asset next season no matter where he lands. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:27 am
  • Kevin Garnett (knees) wants to play next year
    Kevin Garnett told head coach Flip Saunders that he wants to continue playing next season.

    Advice: Garnett will become a free agent on July 1, but all signs point to him remaining in Minnesota for what could be the final season of his career. KG's presence on the team could do wonders for the Wolves' young players, but we don't expect him to have more than a limited role on the court. At this point in his career, KG shouldn't be targeted on draft day and his value will likely be limited to deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Jusuf Nurkic undergoes knee surgery
    Jusuf Nurkic will undergo knee surgery in Los Angeles on Wednesday, and he is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 months.

    Advice: This news comes out of nowhere, as this is the first we are hearing about a knee issue. Nurkic is dealing with a slight tear of the patella tendon, but it isn't clear when he suffered the injury. This means that Nurkic will miss Eurobasket this summer with the Bosnian national team, but hopefully he will be ready in time for training camp with the Nuggets. Nurkic had a decent rookie season with averages of 6.9 points, 6.2 boards and 1.1 blocks in 17.8 minutes per game, but he will need to learn how to stay out of foul trouble. We will monitor his progress very closely this summer, so keep an eye on the injury report. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard (knee) 'hopeful' for Game 2
    Dwight Howard (bruised left knee) is hopeful that he can play in Game 2 but he will have a precautionary MRI on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dwight said it was "very painful" to play through the injury and he eventually came out of the game early in the fourth quarter, but he doesn't think that the injury is "major." We'll update his status once the test results are released so keep a close eye on Rotoworld's injury report. If he misses any time it will be Clint Capela, Terrence Jones and Josh Smith doing their best to fill the void. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut a non-factor in 16 minutes Tues
    Andrew Bogut was a non-factor in the Warriors' win on Tuesday, going scoreless with four rebounds and one steal in only 16 minutes.

    Advice: Bogut said that Dwight Howard's game is "very similar" to Zach Randolph "but with five or 10 times the athleticism." He struggled with the assignment early, got into early foul trouble, and found himself rooted to the bench in the second half as the Warriors succeeded with small-ball lineups. Bogut may still emerge as a key to the series, especially if Dwight's knee injury isn't serious, but Golden State has to feel confident after winning without getting much from their starting center.

  • Dwight Howard limited by left knee in Game 1
    Dwight Howard had seven points, 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers before leaving Tuesday's game with a bruised left knee.

    Advice: Howard was injured in the first quarter and it appeared to slow him down throughout the game, though he continued to play until early in the fourth quarter. He'll only get one day to rest before Game 2 on Thursday, and we should have multiple updates on his status over the next 36 hours. If he isn't able to suit up, expect Clint Capela to start at center with more minutes also opening up for Josh Smith and Terrence Jones. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett 'working out hard' with Wolves
    Wolves owner Glen Taylor said that Kevin Garnett has been "working out really hard to get his knees into shape" since the end of Minnesota's season.

    Advice: "I anticipate that he's interested in coming back," said Taylor, referring to Garnett's potential retirement. "I can't say that for sure, but I don't know why he would be out there doing what he's doing if he didn't want to come back." KG would be an ideal mentor for the Wolves' neophyte roster, including whoever they select with the No. 1 pick, but his fantasy relevance is limited to deep leagues at this stage in his career.

  • Marreese Speights (calf) doubtful Games 2-5
    Marreese Speights expects his moderately strained calf to sideline him for at least the first five games of the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: Speights has already been ruled out for Tuesday's series opener and it sounds like he'll be on the shelf a while longer. His absence opens up extra opportunities for David Lee off the bench, with Festus Ezeli also playing more minutes vs. Dwight Howard and the Rockets. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Muscala saw increased role in 2nd round
    Mike Muscala saw some increased minutes during the Hawks' second-round series against the Wizards, although head coach Mike Budenholzer would not say if he would alter his rotations for the Eastern Conference Finals.

    Advice: "Mike Muscala has played well and he’ll continue to get opportunities," Budenholzer said. "We’ll just see the game, feel the game, and the series and try to find a mixture to give ourselves our best chance with our bigs." After only playing in one game during Atlanta's first-round series, Muscala became a regular part of the rotation in the second-round, largely at the expense of Pero Antic. Muscala is a quality reserve for the Hawks, but on a good night he's only getting roughly 15 minutes, which isn't enough time to put up any meaningful stats in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:05 pm
  • No beef between Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan
    Clippers' reserve guard Dahntay Jones said that there is no beef between Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan.

    Advice: "Guys fight and argue on the court, but that's just the emotion of the game," Jones said. "People want to blow things out of proportion. Those guys are brothers, man. They sit with each other on the plane, on the bus. If you don't like a guy you stay away from him." The extra year and money the Clippers can offer DeAndre tilt the odds in their favor to retain his services, and this is a story we'll be following very closely this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Tristan Thompson says his shoulder is better
    Tristan Thompson said that his bruised left shoulder is feeling better, and that he's "ready to bang" for Cleveland's Eastern Conference Finals matchup against the Hawks.

    Advice: Since Thompson has entered the starting lineup, he has compiled averages of 8.5 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game on 56.6 percent shooting from the field. He had some nice games against the Bulls in Cleveland's second-round series, and he'll be a nightly double-double threat going forward. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Love (shoulder) will not travel to ATL
    Kevin Love (shoulder) will not travel with the Cavs to Atlanta for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, as his shoulder still isn't quite ready for flying.

    Advice: Cleveland will be without $15.7 million cheerleader for road games in the Eastern Conference Finals, and Tristan Thompson will need to continue to be a glass-eater for the Cavs if they hope to upset the East's No. 1 seed. Thompson did have some very good games in Cleveland's second-round series despite a tough matchup with Chicago, so he'll be someone to consider in daily leagues moving forward. Rotoworld.com

"Even though Anthony and Tyreke are in NOLA, I have no interest in the Pelicans or any other job. I have a great job and I'm happy at UK," Calipari tweeted.

  • Marc Gasol still not thinking free agency
    Marc Gasol said he hasn't shifted his focus to his upcoming free agency.

    Advice: While Gasol will be one of the most highly-coveted unrestricted free agents this summer, he said his thoughts are still focused on what went wrong in the Golden State series. "I haven't put all the scenarios on the table yet," Gasol said. "I'm still trying to figure out what I could have done different to [help us] beat Golden State. That's where my mind is the last 72 hours. I know that's not the point you guys want to hear, but that's the reality. I woke up this morning with that feeling over and over again of, 'What could I have done better?'" We'll be keeping a close eye on Gasol leading up to July 1, but he'll remain an elite fantasy option next season no matter what uniform he's wearing. Rotoworld.com

  • Clippers committed to keeping DeAndre Jordan
    Team vice president and head coach Doc Rivers said the Los Angeles Clippers are committed to re-signing DeAndre Jordan.

    Advice: Jordan will have no shortage of suitors as an unrestricted free agent this summer, but Rivers said the team will do what they can to keep the big man. "We don’t need to go and get a max player, except for the one we have," Rivers said. "DJ loves it here. We know that, but you can’t take that for granted. There’s going to be a lot of teams [that want him], and if they’re not, there are a lot of dumb teams out there. There’s going to be a lot of teams coming after him that have money." The likely scenario here is that Jordan accepts a max contract with the Clippers, but we'll keep an eye out for any curveballs. Rotoworld.com

  • Hawks optimistic on landing Paul Millsap
    The Hawks are quietly optimistic about re-signing Paul Millsap.

  • Andrew Bogut has hay fever, will play Tuesday
    Andrew Bogut said he has a case of hay fever and will play in Game 1 on Tuesday.

    Advice: He says he'll play "as long as there's no pollen in Oracle." The Rockets have said they will want to attack the paint and hit the boards, so Bogut is going to be a very important piece for the Warriors. He'll need to avoid foul trouble, which is easier said than done against Dwight Howard and James Harden. Rotoworld.com

  • DeAndre Jordan might leave because of CP3?
    There is "a growing schism between [DeAndre] Jordan and point guard Chris Paul" and it may contribute to Jordan's decision to stay or go as a free agent, according to FOX Sports' Bill Reiter.

    Advice: The report adds, "Paul's well-known edginess and drive ground on Jordan's nerves for much of the year." It also says the Mavs are in the mix to land Jordan. Without CP3, Jordan was not able to do much as an offensive weapon outside of putbacks, so not wanting to be with him wouldn't be a basketball decision. The Clippers are going to offer him a max deal and are still the heavy favorites to land DJ. Rotoworld.com

  • Woj: DeAndre Jordan wants 5 years, $100M
    DeAndre Jordan is seeking a five-year max deal in free agency this offseason, according to Yahoo! Sports.

    Advice: Per Wojnarowski, "it'll take a five-year, $100 million max contract to re-sign him," and Woj notes that the Mavericks will be "chief among several significant suitors" for the young center in a market that also includes the Lakers. There are only a handful of teams that can realistically commit that kind of money to Jordan, and his market may not be as robust as it's being painted to be currently. USA Today's Sam Amick reports that "there have long been rumblings that Jordan is eager to step into a new situation, one where he's not always perceived as the third fiddle." We'll see about that. That's a good role for Jordan. The Clippers are prepared to do whatever it takes to re-sign him, and per ESPN Los Angeles, that includes offering a maximum contract. Doc Rivers called retaining DJ his top offseason priority. Rotoworld.com

  • Clips 'priority' is re-signing DeAndre Jordan
    The Clippers' offseason priority is re-signing unrestricted free agent DeAndre Jordan, according to Doc Rivers.

    Advice: DeAndre had 16 points, 17 rebounds, four steals, three blocks and one turnover in 39 minutes during Sunday's road loss, the latest reminder of his immense importance to the Clippers' future. Jordan, Austin Rivers and Glen Davis are the only regular rotation players without contracts for 2015-16, so Rivers and the front office should make a full-court press to retain their star center, even if it results in a huge luxury-tax bill.

  • Marreese Speights (calf) out Game 1 of WCF
    Marreese Speights (calf) will not play in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Tuesday.

    Advice: Without Speights, David Lee should continue to see roughly 15 minutes a game, which isn't enough time for him to put up any meaningful statistics in fantasy hoops. It's unclear when Speights will be able to return, but he hasn't held a big enough role with the Warriors to significantly alter the Dubs' rotations. Rotoworld.com

    Tristan Thompson (shoulder) was able to practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Thompson tweaked his left shoulder in Game 6 vs. the Bulls on Thursday after a hard fall, but he is expected to be fine moving forward. It's a good sign that he practiced on Saturday with the Cavs off until Wednesday, so we will leave him off the injury report unless something changes. Thompson averaged 37.0 minutes against the Bulls in the second round, and he should continue to have a prominent role moving forward with Kevin Love on the shelf. Rotoworld.com

  • Grizzlies confident that Gasol will be back
    Marc Gasol's teammates are confident that he will be back with the Grizzlies next season, but the possibility of him joining the Spurs is a concern.

    Advice: Gasol reportedly hasn't talked about his plans this summer, but it's clear that he loves Memphis and it's hard to imagine him leaving. That being said, Gasol might be intrigued with the idea of joining a powerhouse such as the Spurs, and even though the Grizzlies can offer more money and an extra year, Memphis should be a little worried. He finished the regular season with averages 17.4 points, 7.8 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 blocks and 0.9 steals per game, so he will be an elite fantasy asset next season regardless of where he ends up. Expect the rumors to heat up as we approach July 1st. Rotoworld.com

  • Marc Gasol puts up 21-15 line with 5 blocks
    Marc Gasol made 7-of-23 from the field for 21 points against the Warriors during a season-ending loss on Friday, adding 15 boards, four assists and five blocks in 44 minutes.

    Advice: He'll enter free agency with one of his least efficient shooting lines in the postseason. The Grizzlies crowd gave him a standing ovation and obviously want him back. Gasol is going to fetch a max deal and the Grizzlies are still the favorites to land him. Teams like the Spurs have also been rumored to be a contender. Rotoworld.com

  • Tristan Thompson scores 13 with 17 boards
    Tristan Thompson owned the paint against the Bulls on Thursday with 13 points, 17 boards and two blocks in 40 minutes.

    Advice: While LeBron James gets the headlines here for ending the Bulls in 2015, Thompson was arguably the missing piece of the puzzle. In fact, the Cavs' net rating was 23.6 better with Thompson on the court than it was without him in this series. He might not be quite as important in the next round. Rotoworld.com

  • Marc Gasol leads Grizzlies in ugly loss
    Marc Gasol hit 8-of-22 shots for 18 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's 98-78 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Gasol played well, despite the poor shooting, but the Grizzlies were never in this game after the first quarter. If nothing else, Gasol is as reliable a center as there is left in the playoffs. The Grizzlies were up 2-1 in this series, but now trail 3-2, and Game 7, if necessary, will be back in Oracle Arena. No, it doesn't look good for Memphis at this point. Rotoworld.com

    Paul Millsap had 14 points, seven rebounds and six turnovers on 6-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's crazy win over the Wizards.

    Advice: Millsap never got it going and didn't do a whole lot during a key 14-0 run by the Hawks, but he did have a couple big rebounds down the stretch. Al Horford carried the Hawks tonight, but Millsap has a nice chance to bounce back in Game 6. Rotoworld.com

  • Marreese Speights (calf) ruled out for series
    Marreese Speights (calf) will not play in the Western Conference semifinals.

    Advice: He was already out for one week and almost had no chance to play in Game 7 (if necessary). The Warriors turned to David Lee for 15 minutes and he'll have a chance to have a similar amount of playing time tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut says he's fine
    Andrew Bogut (knee, ribs) needed an X-ray on his left knee and not his ribs on Monday.

    Advice: He said his ribs are fine and the X-ray came back negative for his knee, too. Bogut will be ready to go for Game 5 at home as the Warriors look to get their momentum back. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut X-rays come back negative
    Andrew Bogut had precautionary X-rays on his ribs after Game 4 on Monday and the results came back negative.

    Advice: Bogut took a shot to the ribs during Game 4, but X-rays checked out fine after the game. He fractured his ribs a year ago so the Warriors likely wanted to take extra precautions, but by all indications, the big man will be ready to go for Game 5 on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Gasol puts up voluminous line in Game 4 loss
    Marc Gasol scored 19 points on 7-of-19 shooting with 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in the Grizzlies' 101-84 Game 4 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Gasol has looked fatigued at the end of games throughout the series so it was a bit surprising to see him play 38 minutes in a game that was mostly lost in the second half. He'll need to continue holding onto the rope for the Grizzlies if they have any chance of taking 2-of-3 games to win the series. Game 5 is at Oracle on Wednesday with the series tied 2-2.

  • Bogut on Allen defensively a winner for GSW
    Andrew Bogut was put on Tony Allen defensively and it was ultimately the key to the Warriors' Game 4 win, and he finished with four points, nine boards, four assists, three steals and three blocks over 30 minutes.

    Advice: Playing small against the Grizzlies' size wasn't working for the Warriors and Steve Kerr made the type of adjustment that wins playoff series. Bogut (and later Draymond Green) sagged off Allen and into the paint, giving the Warriors' added muscle to combat the Grizzlies size, all while Harrison Barnes continued to be the Dubs' best defender on Zach Randolph. The effect was crippling and it has the look of a finishing move on the Grizzlies, who will need to think outside the box for their countermove. Rotoworld.com
