  • Andre Roberson scores six points vs. GSW
    Andre Roberson fouled out in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with six points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's coming off the best career of his game because the Warriors left him alone in most offensive sets on Tuesday. However, it was a little different this time with his teammates missing him on some open looks. Roberson's minutes should be safe, but the Thunder may not go small as much now that the Warriors made an adjustment to go bigger. Still, Roberson's DFS owners have to be satisfied with this and can dial him up again in Game 6. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:37 pm
  • Sergey Karasev unlikely to be a Net next year
    Sergey Karasev is unlikely to suit up for the Nets next season.

    Advice: The Nets declined to pickup their team option on Karasev for the 2016-17 season, so he'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Karasev has reportedly already begun training for next season, and his father stated during a recent interview that he will look at all his options this offseason, including a return to Europe. Karasev has been in the league for three years and has never established himself as a rotation player, so his fantasy value is right around nil. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 am
  • Billy Donovan praises Andre Roberson's play
    Billy Donovan praised Andre Roberson's play following Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: "It's funny," Donovan said. "After Game 2 people are saying to me: ‘Is this guy going to even play anymore?' Andre's a good basketball player and I think sometimes the things that go missing with him is he makes winning plays." Roberson, typically viewed as a defensive specialist, has suddenly emerged as an offensive option for the Thunder posting averages of 15.0 points, 9.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 triples, 3.0 steals and 1.0 block on 57.1 percent shooting over his past two outings. The Dubs have been completely ignoring him on defense, and Roberson has made them pay. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:15 am
  • Roberson scores 17 w/ 12 boards, 5 steals
    Andre Roberson scored 17 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors hacked him several times and he hit just 2-of-8 free throws, but this was arguably the best game of his career. The points were a career high and he shot 7-of-12 from the field, and you have to love the minutes. This big game obviously puts him firmly on the DFS radar due to his low price, though he was averaging just 4.4 points in the postseason prior to Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:05 pm
  • Warriors will not make a lineup change
    The Warriors will not make a lineup change for Game 4 vs. the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Advice: Warriors coach Steve Kerr may have considered a lineup change with either Harrison Barnes or Andrew Bogut moving to the bench in favor of Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli, but Golden State will stand pat for now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:00 pm
  • Report: Kerr could tweak starting five for G4
    Steve Kerr may adjust his starting lineup for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Thunder, according to Scott Ostler of the San Francisco Chronicle.

    Advice: Media members asked Kerr about a potential lineup switch on Monday and Tuesday, but Kerr would not give any indication whether he's leaning one way or the other. Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut have not been very effective through the Western Conference Finals, and with the Dubs in must-win territory, there's a chance Kerr tweaks his starting five. Andre Iguodala or Festus Ezeli would be the most likely to enter the starting five should Kerr make a change, although if a change were to occur, it’s unlikely we’d get word until just prior to tip-off. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 pm
  • Richard Jefferson plays all 12 4Q minutes
    Richard Jefferson played all 12 fourth-quarter minutes and 15 total minutes on Monday against the Raptors, finishing with eight points, one assist and no turnovers.

    Advice: He played down the stretch as coach Ty Lue got a bit desperate. Lue continues to say it's not "fair" to Kevin Love to play in the fourth, so maybe Jefferson plays key minutes again. He's not a fantasy option, of course. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:22 pm
  • Courtney Lee would like to re-sign w/ Hornets
    Courtney Lee said that he'd like to re-sign with the Hornets.

    Advice: "Of course I would like to be [back]," he said. "[I] got a chance to build chemistry and friendships with the guys since I’ve been here and it’s been fun playing with them. Everybody is just playing together. There’s no egos out there at all. It’s always about making the right play and the best play to help win and that’s the kind of guys I want to be on a team with." Charlotte holds Lee's Bird rights, but that doesn't mean he's a lock to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:58 am
  • Andre Roberson stays hot from deep, scores 13
    Andre Roberson started again on Sunday and had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Roberson is 8-of-13 from downtown in his past four games and the Warriors have dared him to beat them from the arc -- tonight Andrew Bogut began as his primary defender, and when Draymond Green has him he frequently roams to the opposite side of the court. Roberson did a good job cutting hard and moving without the ball, rewarding Billy Donovan's decision to keep him in the starting lineup. He'll be on Golden State's radar in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Andre Iguodala solid in futile bench effort
    Andre Iguodala came off the Warriors' bench on Sunday for nine points, four boards, three assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Last year's Finals MVP continues to have a big impact despite having very few plays called for him -- in Games 1 and 2 he had a 13.6 percent usage rate, higher than only Shaun Livingston, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut. His efforts weren't nearly enough tonight, and his minutes were limited by garbage time, but he should resume playing 28-32 minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:51 pm
  • Dahntay Jones suspended 1 game for groin hit
    Dahntay Jones has been suspended one game for hitting Bismack Biyombo in the groin region during the closing minutes of Game 3.

    Advice: Jones is a negligible part of the Cavs rotation, so his mandatory absence from Game 4 will have zero consequence in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:56 pm
  • Tyler Johnson wants to get his body right
    Tyler Johnson said that he wants to focus on getting his body right this summer.

    Advice: "The next aim is to get my body right, to be able to sustain a whole 82-game season and then the playoffs," Johnson said. "I thought I that I was making a lot of great strides at the beginning of the season and I'm going to continue to improve on, obviously, those things as far as ballhandling, finishing at the basket. I think that my biggest strides are going to be mentally and getting my body right." Johnson won't need any offseason procedures on his shoulder, but he will have to be mindful of it during activities such as weight training. The restricted free agent will likely be back with the Heat next season as one of their backup combo guards. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:28 am
  • Knicks reporter believes Grant could 'thrive'
    Knicks reporter Ian Begley believes that Jerian Grant could thrive under coach Jeff Hornacek next season.

    Advice: Hornacek will likely be able to tweak the triangle offense, meaning the Knicks could utilize the pick and roll a lot more which is what Grant excelled at during his college days. The Knicks will certainly be in the market for some backcourt help this summer, but if they aren't able to land a starting-caliber PG, Grant could be looking at a larger role. He averaged 5.6 points, 2.3 assists, 1.9 boards and 0.7 steals in 16.6 minutes per game in his rookie season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:25 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova good to go Saturday
    Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He had an ankle tweak in Game 2, but there was never really much concern. With Kyrie Irving set to play minutes in the upper 30s in a non-garbage time game, there won't be much time available for Dellavedova. Of course, this game could get ugly again. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:44 pm
  • Dellavedova (ankle) questionable for Game 3
    Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) is questionable for Game 3 vs. the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He is dealing with a left ankle sprain, but he's going to test it out at the morning shootaround before making a decision. If Delly plays it safe and sits out on Saturday, Mo Williams will likely take over the backup PG duties. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:43 am
  • Norman Powell only gets three minutes
    Norman Powell only played three minutes against the Cavs on Thursday, adding two points and one rebound.

    Advice: He wasn't really in the rotation until garbage time. The Raptors got very little out of Luis Scola, so that lineup probably won't stick. DFS owners still can't trust Powell right now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:06 pm
  • Dwane Casey possibly changing starters
    Coach Dwane Casey said the Raptors will make some rotation changes and could change the starting lineup.

    Advice: The Cavs destroyed the Raptors around the rim and LeBron James made an incredible 11-of-12 shots at the rim. It will likely be Norman Powell getting the starting nod with Patrick Patterson moving to the bench. There will likely be an update just before tip. Patterson is too risky to use now while Powell is only a tournament punt in DFS. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:19 pm
  • James Anderson to leave NBA for Europe
    James Anderson plans to leave the NBA and sign in Europe, according to David Pick.

    Advice: Pick reports that Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Fenerbahce are all in the mix to sign Anderson, so it sounds like Anderson could sign soon. After averaging 3.5 points per game with the Kings last season, the 27-year-old will now be even further off the fantasy radar than he already was. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:30 am
  • Andre Iguodala hits video-game layup in Gm 2
    Andre Iguodala led the Warriors' second unit on Wednesday with 14 points (4-of-10 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), three rebounds, three steals and one assist in 26 minutes of action.

    Advice: Iguodala hit one 3-pointer and he was surprisingly efficient at the FT line, but his offensive highlight was a double-pump, and-one layup which you can marvel at via the link below. OKC was a dominant rebounding team during the regular season but tonight Golden State won the battle, 45-36, including 15 offensive boards. The stage is set for an epic Western Conference finals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe working out sans brace
    Eric Bledsoe (knee) was working out without a knee brace on Wednesday.

    Advice: Most meniscus surgeries don't require four months off, but Bledsoe's knee injury kept him out from late December to the end of the season. It looks like he should be close to 100 percent to resume his offseason program. The Suns have a bit of a surplus at guard, but Bledsoe should remain in the starting lineup regardless. Before his knee injury, he was a top-20 player in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:45 am
