  • Victor Claver will be inactive for Game 1
    Terry Stotts said that he'll likely place Victor Claver and Allen Crabbe on the inactive list for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Even if these guys were in uniform, it's highly unlikely either would step on the court. These are simply emergency depth guys and they're not the type of players that have an impact on games. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Conley plays well in loss to Thunder
    Mike Conley hit just 6-of-16 shots and missed all six of his 3-point attempts in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Thunder, but finished with 16 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and three steals.

    Advice: He came through for fantasy owners, but will have to play better than this if the Grizzlies are going to beat OKC. And that's a tall order. Rotoworld.com

  • George Hill abused by Jeff Teague in Game 1
    George Hill hit 5-of-8 shots for 12 points, three rebounds, four assists and a steal in Saturday's Game 1 loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: Hill was abused by Jeff Teague tonight (28 points, five assists) and isn't a good matchup for Atlanta's point guard. He could end up giving way to C.J. Watson for the rest of the series, as Hill and Roy Hibbert haven't looked right since the All-Star break. The Pacers no longer have homecourt advantage in this series, nor have they figured out how to match up with Atlanta. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George injures quad in ugly Game 1 loss
    Paul George hit just 6-of-18 shots and left Saturday's Game 1 loss briefly with a left quad/knee injury, finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, four steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Despite the poor shooting, that's a pretty stellar fantasy line from George, but the Pacers were down by about 20 for most of the second half, and lost 101-93. There's no word on the severity of his knee injury, but given that he quickly returned after a trip to the locker room, we're guessing it's no big deal. The No. 1 seeded Pacers turned over homecourt advantage to the Hawks tonight, and don't match up well with Atlanta. If the Hawks hang on to win the series, they'll become just the third No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 in a seven-game series, joining the 2007 Warriors (over the Mavericks), and the 2011 Grizzlies (over the Spurs).

  • Teague, Millsap destroy Pacers in Game 1
    Jeff Teague hit 9-of-19 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-10 free throws for 28 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal in Saturday's Game 1 101-93 win over the No. 1 seeded Pacers in Indy.

    Advice: Paul Millsap added 25 points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in the win. The Pacers look like the worst No. 1 seed in history, but it's early. The Hawks now hold homecourt advantage and the Pacers are going to have to make some sweeping changes if they're going to come back. George Hill and Roy Hibbert don't match up well against the Hawks, and Frank Vogel may have to bench them in order to get the Pacers going. It's been a wild opening Saturday, as all three away teams (Hawks, Warriors, Nets) have won today. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George leaves, returns from knee injury
    Paul George went from having his left knee rubbed down on the bench to the locker room during the third quarter of Game 1, but returned a short time later.

    Advice: It's either his knee or his quad, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We'll know more after the game, but if he does end up coming up lame, Evan Turner is going to become a big factor for the Pacers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:45 pm
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) back in action vs. TOR
    Shaun Livingston (toe) played 29 minutes in his return to action on Saturday, scoring 10 points with three rebounds and three assists in the road victory.

    Advice: Livingston was typically effective, making 4-of-6 FGs and both of his FT attempts, and his return took some pressure off fellow starters Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. He averaged 26.0 minutes per game this season and the Nets don't play again until Tuesday, so Livingston should be raring to go for Game 2. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:02 pm
  • Andre Iguodala fouls out vs. Clippers on Sat.
    Andre Iguodala fouled out of Saturday's game with eight points and three assists in only 19 minutes of action.

    Advice: Warriors coach Mark Jackson kept Iguodala in the game with three fouls in the first half and he quickly picked up his fourth, followed by a fifth early in the third quarter. The Clippers had their own foul problems with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both sitting out much of the second half, and the Warriors were able to escape with a thrilling 109-105 victory despite Iguodala's absence down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:53 pm
  • J.J. Redick scores 22 points in Game 1 loss
    J.J. Redick got hot in Saturday's Game 1 home loss, scoring 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Redick was subbed out during plenty of defensive possessions in the fourth quarter and it may have taken him out of rhythm, as he didn't so much as attempt a field goal in the period. He recently returned from a bulging disc in his back but the injury didn't seem to affect him whatsoever, and his conditioning seemed fine as he played well in 30 minutes at SG. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:52 pm
  • Chris Paul scores team-high 28 points vs. GSW
    Chris Paul finished Saturday's home loss with a team-high 28 points, five 3-pointers, seven rebounds, eight assists and four steals.

    Advice: CP3 appeared to tweak his hamstring late in the first half but he looked fine in the second half, and the Clippers wouldn't risk playing him if there was considerable risk of making the injury worse. He drilled a pair of clutch 3-pointers and the only negatives in his game were a late turnover (on which he was fouled) and a pair of crucial missed free throws. We're considering him good to go for Game 2 on Monday, and will update his status if anything changes in the next 48 hours. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Jamal Crawford hits half-court shot in defeat
    Jamal Crawford's shot abandoned him on Saturday, as he made 2-of-11 field goals and 4-of-6 free throws to finish with nine points.

    Advice: One of J-Craw's makes was a spectacular half-court shot to end the second quarter, but otherwise he couldn't find the range. His conditioning may still be an issue as he just returned this week from a strained calf, but the Clippers won't offer up any excuses as they seek to even the series at 1-1 on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:46 pm
  • Chris Paul may have tweaked hamstring vs. GSW
    Chris Paul appeared to tweak his hamstring late in the first half on Saturday.

    Advice: He didn't seem overly concerned about the injury and looked fine while giving a quick interview after the second quarter, but we'll keep a close eye on him in the second half. The Clippers obviously cannot afford to have their star PG aggravate a hamstring injury on the first day of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:53 pm
  • Joe Johnson, Deron Williams each score 24 pts
    Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 24 points in Saturday's road win vs. the Raptors, with Johnson connecting on 8-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: D-Will carried the Nets in the first half and they wisely fed Johnson while he was hot in the third quarter, but it was their locked-in team defense that earned them a tough victory. They'll try to take a stranglehold on the series with another win in Toronto on Tuesday before heading to Brooklyn for Games 3 and 4. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:51 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan shoots poorly in Game 1 loss
    DeMar DeRozan didn't score a field goal in the first half of Saturday's loss, and he finished with 14 points on 3-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: The Raptors' entire offense struggled, shooting 39.4 percent with 17 turnovers, and DeRozan was part of the problem by continually forcing up contested shots. As his team's lone All-Star and leading scorer, DeRozan needs to score closer to his season average 22.7 points per game for Toronto's offense to really succeed. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:50 pm
  • Paul Pierce's surge helps Nets steal Game 1
    Paul Pierce got hot in the fourth quarter on Saturday, finishing with 15 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in a 94-87 win in Toronto.

    Advice: Pierce's late surge helped keep the Raptors at bay and he already looks like a matchup nightmare, as Toronto's PFs aren't nimble enough to chase him off the 3-point line without giving up easy driving and passing lanes. Fellow 'dinosaur' Kevin Garnett had five points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block in 20 minutes, and his lone field goal was a dagger in the final minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Terrence Ross struggles in 16 minutes vs. BKN
    Raptors SG Terrence Ross scored just three points in 16 minutes of action vs. the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: Ross made 1-of-4 shots with all of his attempts coming from beyond the arc, and he quickly gave way to veteran guard Greivis Vasquez (18 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists). Ross shot 42.3 percent from the field this season and he was held to single-digits in the final three games of the regular season, so his dud on Saturday isn't a big surprise. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:42 pm
  • Nemanja Nedovic (calf) not available Saturday
    Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not be available for the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He hurt himself while playing for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the D-League playoffs, but even healthy he'd be unlikely to step on the court for Golden State. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:41 am
  • Dwyane Wade won't have playing time limits
    Dwyane Wade will not have any medical restrictions in the playoffs, according to Heat coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Advice: "I'm going to read his body language, I'm going to read the game," Spoelstra said. "But he's cleared to play. So neither one of us want to put a restriction on it, but we're also realistic and we'll be smart about it." Wade hasn't played more than 23 minutes in a game since late March and he didn't play in more than eight consecutive games all season, so it would be surprising if he doesn't rest at some point during the postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:22 am
  • Beno Udrih steps up in Grizzlies' PG rotation
    Grizzlies PG Beno Udrih will take on a bigger role in the playoffs with Nick Calathes suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

    Advice: Calathes was averaging 15 minutes per game and he proved to be invaluable when Mike Conley missed games in February, but his playing time will now fall to Udrih. Although he's only played a handful of minutes with Memphis, Udrih is a career 46.1 percent shooter (35.6 percent from downtown) and he boasts a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:39 am
  • Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters shoot down drama
    Luol Deng said that Cavaliers guards Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters "love" to play together and have no off-court issues.

    Advice: "There's times where they've looked great," Deng said. "They're human, but in terms of can they play together? Yeah. I've played in this league for 10 years and I know they can." The talented duo have struggled to co-exist offensively, a problem which may have been exacerbated by keeping Waiters in a sixth-man role early in the season, but they showed steady improvement late in the season and their mutual respect bodes well for the future of the Cavs backcourt. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:15 am
  • J.J. Redick feeling refreshed for playoff run
    J.J. Redick said he feels "refreshed" on Friday as the Clippers prepare for a deep playoff run.

    Advice: He has been dealing with a bulging disc in his back, missing 25 games while rehabbing. When asked if he anticipates head coach Doc Rivers placing a limit on his minutes, Redick said he will remain ready when his number is called. "If we look at it from need in the game, needing every win we can get, if he needs me, I'm available." Redick posted a career-high 15.2 points per game in his first season in Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com
  • Lakers plan to keep Marshall on team option
    The Lakers plan to pick up Kendall Marshall's $915,000 team option.

    Advice: The Lakers need bodies given their nine unrestricted free agents. Marshall was asked to do more than he's capable of this year, but got valuable experience while running the show for most of the year. In 45 starts, he averaged 8.1 points, 9.5 assists, 1.3 3-pointers and 1.0 steals. Marshall isn't a good enough shooter and has too many physical limitations to be a plus NBA point guard, but he'd be a fine backup. Rotoworld.com
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday
    Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday.

    Advice: Livingston sat out the final five games of the regular season to rest his sore big toe. He's fully expected to play and start in Game 1 against the Raptors Saturday. Livingston was an underrated glue guy during the regular season, averaging 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 steals in his 54 starts. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:23 am
  • Stevens thinks Rondo will have 'monster' year
    Coach Brad Stevens believes Rajon Rondo will have a "monster year" in 2014-15.

    Advice: It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that Rondo will be better as he gets further removed from his January 2013 ACL tear. This season, he only played in 30 games and was coddled to some degree, averaging just 11.7 points, 9.8 assists and 5.5 rebounds in 33.3 minutes. We'd expect Rondo back around 37 minutes next season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:14 am
  • Isaiah Thomas wants to stay with Kings
    Impending restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas said he would prefer to stay with the Kings.

    Advice: Thomas was a breakout sensation following the December Greivis Vasquez trade. In 54 starts, IT2 averaged 21.2 points, 6.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds, 1.9 3-pointers and 1.2 steals while shooting a healthy 45.1 percent from the field. He left no doubt that he's a plus starter in the NBA despite being listed at 5'9/185. We'd expect the Kings to match any reasonable offers. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:49 am
  • Ramon Sessions would welcome return to MILW
    Free agent Ramon Sessions said he'd welcome a return to Milwaukee.

    Advice: Sessions is one of the few players in the league who actually embraces the dysfunction in Milwaukee. He was drafted there at No. 56 overall in 2007. "I want to stay loyal to them like they did to me," he said. We're not sure if the Bucks want Sessions back, but we do know he's still a fantasy asset whenever he's getting significant minutes. In 28 games for the Bucks this season, Sessions averaged 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:26 am
  • Antetokounmpo plans to get stronger
    Giannis Antetokounmpo said he's going to focus on getting stronger this summer.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo was playing in Greece's second division before making the leap to the NBA this season. Considering that and his 6'9/210 frame, he handled himself very well. At age 19, his per-36 minute stats were 10.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.8 3-pointers. It's the kind of line we look for when trying to project future fantasy assets. The Greek Freak's progress this offseason will determine how much playing time he gets next season. Rotoworld.com
  • Bulls say Rose will return at 100 percent
    Bulls GM Gar Forman said there's "no question" Derrick Rose (knee) will come back and be 100 percent" next season.

    Advice: In a vacuum, Rose's surgery to repair his meniscus isn't a crippling procedure. It helps athletes maintain the cushion in their knee so there aren't more problems down the line. But when combined with Rose's ugly rehab from his 2012 ACL tear, there's obvious reason for concern. This is a player that relies on athleticism -- not a jump shot -- to be dominant. Rose averaged just 15.9 points and 4.3 assists on 35.4 percent shooting in 10 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jazz GM expects to retain RFA Hayward
    GM Dennis Lindsey said he hopes restricted free agent Gordon Hayward is a "career Jazz member."

    Advice: At just 24 years old, Hayward was one of just four players to average 15 points, five rebounds and five assists. The others were LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Michael Carter-Williams. Hayward's 41.3 percent shooting leaves a lot to be desired, but the Jazz would be silly not to match any offer within reason. They can afford him and a max free agent if it comes to that. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:17 am
  • Dwyane Wade says injuries aren't as bad
    Dwyane Wade (knee) said he's feeling better to start this postseason compared to last postseason.

    Advice: Wade added he wasn't concerned about continuity with LeBron James and how his last three games helped him. At the conclusion of the playoffs last year, Wade mentioned how much he battled through injury, which explains why the Heat managed him so severely this season. The bottom line is it looks like their plan worked and they'll look to win another title in June. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:07 pm
  • Jamal Crawford scores 34 in finale loss
    Jamal Crawford hit 10-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 34 points, five rebounds, eight assists and two steals in Wednesday's meaningless loss to the Blazers.

    Advice: The Clips secured the No. 3 seed when the Thunder beat the Pistons earlier, and the regulars took this one off. Crawford was great, but wasn't even the best J. Crawford of the night, as GSW's Jordan had a monster night. Darren Collison and Matt Barnes each added 19 points on the night and Blake Griffin's suspension is over. The Clippers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up with the Warriors. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:17 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan returns in time for playoffs
    DeMar DeRozan returned from a night of rest and played 22 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with nine points and five rebounds.

    Advice: He's good to go for the Raps' Round 1 meeting with the Nets, and he's surely looking forward to it. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan plays just 22 minutes
    DeMar DeRozan played 22 minutes in his return to the lineup during a 95-92 loss to the Knicks on Wednesday, scoring nine points with five boards, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: He rested on Monday and coach Dwane Casey took it easy on his All-Star tonight -- deservedly so. Only Kevin Durant and Monta Ellis logged more minutes this season than DeRozan while DD also ranked third in free throw makes. He had a breakout season and has really become a nice, well-rounded scorer. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:26 pm
  • Dwayne Wade scores 16 in meaningless loss
    Dwyane Wade hit 6-of-14 shots for 16 points, two rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: His owners probably couldn't care less that he showed up for the final two games of the season, as he was simply a headache to own all year. And if you owned Wade this season, chances are you won't be touching him next year. And we're right there with you. Toney Douglas and Ray Allen were the only other Heat players to score in double figures, as LeBron James, Chris Bosh and some others took the night off to rest. The Heat will play the Bobcats in Round 1, and will have to find an answer for Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson if they're going to breeze into Round 2. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Mike Conley plays 42 minutes in win
    Mike Conley played 42 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday during a big 106-105 win, scoring 22 points with four boards, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He had a hamstring issue on Monday and has been able to do all of his activities leading up to tonight. Conley hit a couple big free throws down the stretch, which was reassuring after he missed some clutch ones on Monday. The Grizzlies will take on the Thunder in the first round. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:31 pm
  • Jamal Crawford starting on Wednesday
    Jamal Crawford, Darren Collison, Glen Davis, Matt Barnes and DeAndre Jordan are starting against the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Crawford's minutes have been held in check and it should be interesting to see how much he plays with the Clippers short on players. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:21 pm
  • Nedovic out with a calf injury
    Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not play on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's had a tough time staying in the lineup and played just 6.2 minutes per game with the Warriors this season. They're going to be shorthanded tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:08 pm
  • Dwyane Wade in starting lineup vs. Philly
    Dwyane Wade will start next to Toney Douglas, James Jones, Shane Battier and Udonis Haslem on Wednesday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Wade is expected to see a nominal amount of minutes, but it's still a great sign for the Heat to even see him suit up. He had to play through injuries last postseason and chances are he will have to again. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:17 pm
  • Rondo, Sullinger, Bayless & Humphries out
    Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries and Jerryd Bayless will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Celtics announced he's dealing with a hamstring injury, which is not the same as his shin injury from earlier this month. He was back in the lineup on Monday night after missing some action over the weekend, but he won't play tonight. Rondo played just 30 games this season, averaging 11.7 points, 5.5 boards, 9.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 triples. He'll have the entire offseason to get ready for next year, which wasn't the case this year. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:38 pm
  • Chris Paul not with the team for Wednesday
    Chris Paul is not with the team for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: J.J. Redick and Blake Griffin are also not with the team. The Clippers can still move up to the two seed with a win and a Thunder loss, so they apparently would rather rest their guys tonight. With Paul out, Darren Collison is likely looking at a very busy night. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:45 am
  • Andre Iguodala (rest) won't play Wednesday
    Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: Iguodala recently dealt with a knee injury and his minutes have been monitored in recent weeks, so he was a top candidate for a precautionary day of rest. He'll be ready to go for the postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:00 am
  • Dwyane Wade expected to play Wednesday
    Dwyane Wade is expected to play "nominal minutes" in Miami's final game of the regular season on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wade logged 23 minutes in his return on Saturday, then followed that up with an 18-minute game on Monday, and he's not likely to get much more vs. the 76ers. The good news for Miami is that he doesn't seem to have had any setbacks with his hamstring or knee since returning, while slowly improving his conditioning in the lead-up to the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:29 am
  • Joe Johnson (calf) reportedly out Wednesday
    Joe Johnson's sore calf will reportedly sideline him on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played through the injury in Tuesday's loss and it doesn't sound very serious, but the Nets will err on the side of caution with the playoffs right around the corner. It sounds as though the Nets will have Alan Anderson (abdomen) back in action to fill the gaps at SG, along with Marcus Thornton and Marquis Teague. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:38 am
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) out again vs. Cavs
    Shaun Livingston (toe) will sit out Wednesday's road game in Cleveland.

    Advice: This marks Livingston's fifth straight DNP and the Nets can only hope that he's ready for the first round of the playoffs, as he's been an invaluable part of their backcourt rotation all season long. Marcus Thornton and Alan Anderson will take on more minutes and responsibilities in his continued absence. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:36 am
  • Mike Conley (hamstring) feeling better Wed.
    Mike Conley said that his right hamstring injury has improved, though his status for Wednesday's game remains uncertain.

    Advice: "I'm doing a lot of stretching and keeping heat on it, so it should be loose," Conley said. Fantasy owners relying on Conley for production in the season's final game should check back closer to tip-off for the final word on his status. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:23 am
  • J.J. Redick to be held out Wednesday
    J.J. Redick had 18 points and four 3-pointers in just 17 minutes, and will take the night off on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jamal Crawford and Darren Collison should pick up his slack, but they could probably use some rest as well. It's probably best to avoid the Clippers' shooting guards in fantasy on Wednesday. Collison had 10 points in 24 minutes on Tuesday, while Crawford hit 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points in 31 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:49 pm
  • Chris Paul Mr. Efficiency again Tuesday
    Chris Paul hit 8-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points and 10 assists in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Wow. He's primed and ready to go for the playoffs, and the Clippers are going to be a tough out all the way, and could win it all. Paul's status for Wednesday is up in the air, as their game may not mean anything if the Thunder beat the Pistons early on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:48 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 12 despite sore calf
    Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.

    Advice: The Nets could fall to the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, so we'll have to see if Jason Kidd goes after seeding or rest for his guys tomorrow. Our guess is the old guys will get a rest and the Nets will have the No. 6 seed, but it's just a guess. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:29 pm
  • Paul Pierce scores 13 in loss to Knicks
    Paul Pierce played through his shoulder injury and had 13 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Nets needed to win this game and may be ready to give up on Wednesday's finale. Jason Kidd said after the game he doesn't care if he's the No. 5 or 6 seed, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Pierce get the night off. He was a game-time decision tonight, but he went for it. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Redick, other Clips starters all in Tuesday
    J.J. Redick will start along with the other Clippers regulars on Tuesday, but Doc Rivers says he won't play on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Clippers want to win out and hope the Clippers lose again to get the No. 2 seed, but it's still a long shot. It sounds like all systems go for the Clippers tonight, so play them as you normally would. All bets are off for Wednesday, though. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:04 pm
  • Joe Johnson (calf) will play vs. Knicks
    Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.

    Advice: Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:32 pm
  • Paul George, West, Stephenson out Wednesday
    Paul George, David West, Lance Stephenson and C.J. Watson will all rest during Wednesday's season finale vs. the Magic.

    Advice: With the first seed in the East locked up, the Pacers are just trying to give their key players some rest while hoping to reclaim the elusive chemistry that abandoned them after the All-Star break. After shooting a mere 37.2 percent from the field in March, George is still stuck at 40.2 percent in April. Rotoworld.com

  • George Hill will play vs. Magic on Wednesday
    The Pacers will not rest George Hill on Wednesday, though he may not play the entire game.

    Advice: Hill is averaging 3.5 assists this season, which have created an average of 11.8 points per 48 minutes for the Pacers. That ranks him 112th among qualifying players, sandwiched between Evan Turner and Marc Gasol. It's a paltry mark for a starting point guard, though in fairness the Pacers' offense doesn't give him many opportunities. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Conley suffers hamstring injury Monday
    Mike Conley suffered a right hamstring injury in Monday night's big win over the Suns, but was able to play through it.

    Advice: He was hobbling toward the end of the game, but still played effectively, finishing with 14 points and seven assists. Conley said after the game that he didn't think the injury would keep him from playing on Wednesday against Dallas, but owners will want to check back just to make sure he's good to go in the finale.

  • Shaun Livingston ruled out for Tuesday
    Shaun Livingston will not play again on Tuesday, as he continues to deal with an injured big toe.

    Advice: Livingston has now missed four straight games, but as long as the toe's not broken, you have to think he'll be ready for the playoffs. Marcus Thornton should once again see big minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com
