  • Goran Dragic had pledged to re-sign with PHX
    Goran Dragic had reportedly pledged to re-sign with the Suns before they traded him in 2015.

    Advice: According to Ken Berger of CBS, Dragic had told the Suns he would re-sign with the team before they traded him. "Within days of [Jeff] Hornacek having a heart-to-heart with Dragic and securing a commitment from the Slovenian point guard to re-sign with the Suns as a free agent the following summer, the Suns shipped him to Miami in a three-team trade, a person familiar with the situation told CBS Sports," Berger wrote. While this changes the perception of the Suns' haul a bit, this news is more just an interesting tidbit as Dragic is coming off his first full season with the Heat. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am
  • Head coach says Victor Oladipo special talent
    Magic head coach Frank Vogel called Victor Oladipo a special talent.

    Advice: Vogel hasn't had a chance to coach Oladipo yet, but is familiar with the 24-year-old from his time as the Pacers head coach. "I think Victor Oladipo is a special, special talent," Vogel said. Oladipo averaged 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers in 2015-16 and will be an elite fantasy option in 2016-17 if Vogel can help him take the next step.

  • Dante Exum to be cleared for contact Thursday
    Dante Exum (knee) has been cleared for contact on Thursday.

    Advice: This is a big step for Exum, who tore his ACL back in August. Exum was growing as a defender during his rookie season and even showed some offensive improvement in Summer League. He's probably not going to play for Australia in the Olympics, but it's possible. He'll have more value in reality than in fantasy next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Kyle Lowry scores 35 points; Raps tie series
    Kyle Lowry was outstanding during a 105-99 win over the Cavs in Game 4 on Monday, scoring 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was on fire early with 16 points on 100.0 effective field goal percentage to kick this game off. Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored a combined 67 points in their best combined scoring effort this postseason. To nobody's surprise, Raptors continue to go as Lowry goes in the postseason. During wins, he has a 56.9 true shooting percentage and a 2.5 assist:turnover ratio. In the losses, those numbers are 38.9 and 1.6, respectively. The Cavs should be doing all they can to stop Lowry. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 26 points in a loss
    Kyrie Irving scored 26 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Raptors on Monday.

    Advice: It was a better offensive bounce-back game in this loss. Irving was just 3-of-19 from the field in Game 3, but he made 11-of-21 from the field tonight. On the downside, Irving was torched on the defensive end with Lowry getting almost anything he wanted. Expect him to get a ton of shots in Game 5. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Casey praises Joseph's strong Game 3 showing
    Dwane Casey praised Cory Joseph's strong showing in Toronto's Game 3 win on Saturday.

    Advice: "He did a much better job tonight of controlling the game," Casey said. "Running the offense, keeping things under control, not letting the defense speed him up." The head coach then added that "Cory did a good job of handling their defensive pressure,"switching and making sure he had the right person involved in the pick-and-roll." Joseph is an important part of Toronto's formula for success, so he'll need to play well again in Monday's Game 4 for the Raptors to be firing on all cylinders. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:17 am
  • E. Payton excited to play under Frank Vogel
    Elfrid Payton is excited to play under new head coach Frank Vogel.

    Advice: "I'm pretty excited," Payton said. "I think it definitely fits us. We have guys who are athletic, who can get out and run, so it’s definitely something that would play to our strengths." Vogel's arrival should be good news for Payton's fantasy prospects since Scott Skiles was not a fan of EP's game, but the new head coach will still need to figure out the best way to deploy the Payton-Victor Oladipo backcourt. As for his offseason plans, Payton is working on improving his jumper, mid-range game and finishing at the rim. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:52 am
  • Russell Westbrook's 30 & 12 help OKC win Gm 3
    The Thunder cruised to a 133-105 win in Game 3, aided by Russell Westbrook's 30 points (10-of-19 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), 12 assists, eight rebounds and two steals.

    Advice: Westbrook had some jaw-dropping plays tonight, combining his natural athleticism with pure ferocity, and the Warriors didn't have any answers defensively. His few bad shots were overshadowed by outrageous euro-step layups, rebounds in traffic, fastbreak explosions and unselfish passes, resulting in a statement game for the 27-year-old All-Star. Follow the link below to enjoy one of his Game 3 highlights. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:54 pm
  • Stephen Curry (elbow) scores 24 in Gm 3 loss
    Stephen Curry (elbow) finished Sunday's 133-105 Game 3 defeat with 24 points on 7-of-17 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Curry shot well in Game 2 and he wasn't even listed on Golden State's injury report tonight, so his struggles can't be blamed on injuries -- credit is due to OKC's defense, which switched pick-and-rolls and used its length to confound the Warriors. The starting unit for Golden State shot a combined 20-of-57 from the field (35.1 percent) and it's safe to assume they'll be burning for redemption in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:50 pm
  • Stephen Curry (elbow) will start in Game 3
    Stephen Curry (elbow) will be in the starting lineup for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals against the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Curry was a full participant during shootaround, and he's not even being listed on the injury report. He was never in any danger of missing Game 3, and head coach Steve Kerr said that Curry was shooting the ball well during shootaround, so it doesn't seem like the injury will impact his play. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:58 pm
  • Stephen Curry going through shootaround
    Stephen Curry (elbow) is going through the morning shootaround as expected.

    Advice: Coach Steve Kerr said that Curry was shooting the ball well and that his elbow isn't giving him any issues. We'll likely have official confirmation soon, but Curry is fully expected to play in Game 3 vs. the Thunder. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:56 am
  • 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
  • Tribune: Bulls should trade Rose or Butler
    K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune said that Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler will likely both be on the roster next season.

    Advice: Johnson argues that the Bulls' offseason priority should be to trade either Rose or Butler, which makes some sense because they didn't play well together last season. A trade still seems unlikely because the Bulls' asking price for Butler is very high and Rose doesn't have much value around the league and is entering a contract year, so Chicago may have to give their starting backcourt another chance. Coach Fred Hoiberg did mention that he may stagger their minutes more next season, so that could give both players a slight boost in value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:35 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
  • Cory Joseph brings the defense in win
    Cory Joseph was terrific in 31 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: It was easily his best game of the series and possibly his best game of the postseason. The most important part of his performance tonight was his outstanding defense on Kyrie Irving. The Raptors bench was destroyed in the first two games, so this was a huge boost. Joseph also played a lot of the clutch minutes late, which was a major against the Pacers in the first round. Don't expect him to be this effective in Game 4. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:30 pm
  • Kyle Lowry snaps out of slump, scores 20
    Kyle Lowry snapped out of his shooting slump with 20 points during a win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding six rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He was 7-of-13 from the field, including 4-of-8 from deep. Lowry made just 1-of-15 from beyond the arc in the first two games of this series, but got it going early. He was in some foul trouble during this game and the Raptors holding it together while he was on the bench was key. Lowry has actually shot the ball worse at home in the postseason, so that's not necessarily why he was better tonight. Obviously the Raptors need Lowry to play well to get another game in this series. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:23 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 13, gets hurt late
    Kyrie Irving made 3-of-19 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He was in some pain after some contact under the basket. Irving did play through it, but he was clearly in some discomfort after the game. There doesn't appear to be anything seriously wrong with him, so he should be all good for Game 4. Irving had by far his worst game after shooting an even 50.0 percent from the field in his previous 10 games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:09 pm
  • 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
  • Curry: Injury is uncomfortable, not painful
    Stephen Curry (elbow) said his injury is more "uncomfortable" than "painful."

    Advice: He said he has a full range of motion after going through a full practice on Friday. "It doesn’t cause any problems mechanically, so I can still use my arm and do what I need to do," Curry said. He wore a compression sleeve and there is no word if he'll keep it on for Sunday. Curry will be ready to roll for a big Game 3 in Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:26 pm
  • Stephen Curry's swelling down, wearing brace
    Stephen Curry practiced on Friday and the swelling in his elbow appears to have subsided.

    Advice: He did have a brace on his elbow, so the injury isn't completely behind him. Luckily for the Warriors, the schedule helps them with Game 3 not until Sunday. All that time off should help his knee injury, as well. Expect Curry to have a big game in Oklahoma City. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:42 pm
  • Kings won't get in a bidding war for Rondo
    According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Kings are prepared to cut bait with Rajon Rondo if his free agency turns into a bidding war.

    Advice: The Kings already have an excellent point guard under contract for next season in Darren Collison, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for Sacramento to overpay for the 30-year-old guard. There are several teams around the league in need of a starting PG, so Rondo should get plenty of interest considering he's arguably the second best free agent PG after Mike Conley. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:29 am
  • Pat Riley wants Wade to shoot more 3-pointers
    Pat Riley wants Dwyane Wade to work on his 3-pointers this summer.

    Advice: "Maybe he could become a 40 percent, 38 percent 3-point shooter," Riley said of Wade. "I wouldn’t give him an open look. Once he went to work with the coaches on it, that shot, if he had to take it, was normal. That would be a big added part of his game next year because nobody ever thinks he can do that." Wade's 3-point shot has always been his biggest weakness, but he did shoot 52.2 percent from deep in the postseason and that could give his fantasy value a boost next season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:47 am
  • Kyrie Irving scores 26 points in easy win
    Kyrie Irving scored 26 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: He is really taking it to the Raptors with a 27-point game during his 30 minutes in Game 1. Irving has tremendous efficiency in this postseason with a 60.6 true shooting percentage on a 28.2 usage rate. Plus, he has a solid 2.9 assist:turnover ratio in his 35.8 minutes during these 10 wins. The Cavs look really dangerous when Kyrie is on and his minutes increase has helped his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:27 pm
  • Kyle Lowry has another dud, scores 10 points
    Kyle Lowry made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points during a 108-89 loss in Cleveland on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

    Advice: He finally made his first 3-pointer of this series, but he's only 1-of-15 in the last two games. Lowry is also struggling on defense, as well. The Raptors continue to not use Lowry at the end of the first half and it was costly tonight. They ended the second half giving up a 16-2 run to the Cavs to basically put the game out of reach. Lowry was coming into this series with some very nice momentum, but it's now slowed to a crawl. Maybe the home-court advantage in Game 2 can help them. Lowry did go to the locker room, but he's fine. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:23 pm
  • Stephen Curry (elbow) probable for Game 3
    Stephen Curry (elbow) is expected to play in Game 3 against the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Curry's elbow is showing improvement, and the Warriors are so confident in his progress that they aren't even putting him on the injury report for Game 3. There's sure to be more than a few updates leading up to Sunday's tip, but for now, we can assume that he'll play. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:23 pm
  • Warriors not concerned about Curry's elbow
    Warriors GM Bob Myers said that Stephen Curry's elbow did not need to be drained on Thursday.

    Advice: "I just saw him today a little while ago, and it didn't seem like anything crazy," said Myers of Curry. "I suppose that's possible if it keeps gathering fluid in there, but it didn't seem like a major issue to anybody. People aren't walking around here right now worried about it, so that's a positive thing." It doesn't sound like Curry is in any jeopardy of missing Sunday's Game 3 in OKC. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:53 pm
  • Steph Curry says elbow is fine after Game 2
    Steph Curry said his injured elbow felt fine after Wednesday's Game 2 win.

    Advice: Curry was wearing an elbow wrap after the game, but didn't seem worried. "Elbow is fine," Curry said after the game. "Looks like it has a tennis ball on top, but doesn't affect range of motion." We'll keep a close eye on news surrounding Curry's elbow, but it doesn't sound like his status for Game 3 is in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:36 am
  • Russell Westbrook has 16 & 12, shoots 5-of-14
    Russell Westbrook made only 5-of-14 field goals and 5-of-5 free throws during OKC's Game 2 loss, finishing with 16 points, 12 assists, two steals and three turnovers.

    Advice: Westbrook's seven steals in Game 1 set a franchise record but he had only two steals tonight, and OKC's defense collapsed en masse in the second half. WB struggled to create individual offense vs. Klay Thompson, he forced an objectively bad two-for-one possession to end the first half, and he'll need to be much better for the Thunder to maintain home-court advantage with consecutive wins in Games 3 and 4. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 28 points in Game 2 win
    Stephen Curry scored a team-high 28 points on 9-of-15 shooting during Wednesday's Game 2 victory, hitting five 3-pointers with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

    Advice: "I don’t think [Curry] is 100 percent, but I think he’s close," Steve Kerr said prior to the game. Steph was quiet in the first half, but he came alive with a personal 15-point spurt in the third quarter -- in under two minutes of game time. Golden State won by a 27-point margin, convincingly ending any hand-wringing about their Game 1 defeat. Curry's right elbow swelled up after a dive into the stands, but he said in a post-game interview that he expects to be fine for Sunday's Game 3 in OKC. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:37 pm
  • Magic interview coach David Vanterpool
    Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool interviewed for Orlando's vacant head coaching position on Wednesday.

    Advice: Vanterpool has interviewed for head coaching jobs before but he's never made the leap, and Orlando has also discussed their position with Frank Vogel and current assistant Adrian Griffin. GM Rob Hennigan said recently that "stability is very important," seemingly giving Griffin an advantage, but we shouldn't have to wait long for Orlando's final decision. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:26 pm
  • Kings 'cool slightly' on keeping Rajon Rondo
    The Kings have reportedly "cooled slightly" on the idea of re-signing unrestricted free agent Rajon Rondo.

    Advice: According to Kings' writer James Ham, "The Kings have not completely turned their backs on a possible return, but they are also not going to get into a bidding war for Rondo’s services." Defensive lapses were a constant for Rondo last season, and the Kings yielded the 10th-most points and third-most assists to opposing point guards. Rondo benefited from the blistering pace of George Karl's offense this year, so fantasy owners should temper expectations for 2016-17. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:59 pm
  • Heat will work with Dragic this summer
    The Heat will send staff to Europe to work with Goran Dragic.

    Advice: The team isn't cutting corners on working with their point guard. Dragic had himself a very nice series against the Raptors, averaging 18.9 points, 5.3 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 1.3 treys. He started the season slow, so maybe a good offseason program can help him out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:18 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
  • Report: Kings not committed to Rajon Rondo
    The Kings reportedly will not get into a bidding war for Rajon Rondo this offseason.

    Advice: While Rondo had a nice season statistically in Sacramento, the end result was still a losing record for the Kings, and it doesn't sound like the struggling franchise is fully committed to retaining his services despite Rondo's connection with DeMarcus Cousins. A Rondo departure would provide a major boost to the fantasy value of Darren Collison. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:04 am
  • Lowry held to eight points in 115-84 loss
    Kyle Lowry was held to just eight points in Tuesday's 115-84 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 1, adding five assists, four boards and four turnovers.

    Advice: Kyrie Irving and the Cavs did a great job defending Lowry tonight, holding him to 4-of-14 from the field and 0-of-7 from 3-point range. Lowry was coming off a clutch 35-point performance in Game 7 vs. the Heat on Sunday in which he played 42 minutes, but he made it clear before Tuesday's game that he's healthy. "I feel great, my body feels great," Lowry said. "I feel like a million bucks. My mind's great. My body's great." His elbow has been an issue since late March, but Lowry should bounce back in a big way in Game 2. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:31 pm
  • Kyrie Irving drops 27 points in 30 minutes
    Kyrie Irving dropped 27 points in 30 minutes in Tuesday's Game 1 win over the Raptors.

    Advice: He got to the rim at will and shot an impressive 11-of-17 from the field, adding five assists, two boards, two blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. Not only was his offense great, but Irving kept Kyle Lowry in check by limiting him to eight points on 4-of-14 shooting. "He does a tremendous job of leading their team," Irving said of Lowry. "I have to do a great job of keeping my body in front of him, making it difficult and forcing him into tough shots." If Game 1 is any indication, Irving looks poised for a monster series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Lakers get 2nd pick, Boston will get 3rd pick
    The Lakers will get the No. 2 pick in the draft and the Celtics will get the third pick.

    Advice: This was huge for the Lakers because they would've completely lost their pick to Philly if it fell out of the top three. Depending on who Philly takes No. 1, the Lakers will likely be awarded with Brandon Ingram or Ben Simmons at No. 2. As for Boston, they received this pick from the Nets and will also have the 16th and 23rd pick in the first round. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:31 pm
  • Goran Dragic says he will play for Slovenia
    Goran Dragic said during his exit interview that he will suit up for the Slovenian National Team this summer.

    Advice: Dragic also said that he would like for the Heat to play with pace next year, and it's easy to understand why as his numbers spiked to 17.3 points, 6.7 assists, 4.6 boards and 1.0 steal per game on 48.5 percent shooting after the All-Star break. Chris Bosh's (blood clots) future will likely determine the direction of the Miami franchise, but Dragic has made it known that his preference is to play at an uptempo pace. He should go somewhere in the mid-rounds on draft day. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:01 pm
  • Russell Westbrook scores 27 in Game 1 win
    Russell Westbrook was tremendous in the second half during a 108-102 victory in Oakland on Monday, scoring 27 points with six rebounds, 12 assists, seven steals and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Billy Donovan looked like was going to get the Westbroke version of his All-Star guard with a 1-of-10 start from the field, but Westbrook erupted for 19 points in the third quarter. Those 19 points were his best scoring output in any playoff quarter in his career and also the most the Warriors allowed to a player in a quarter this postseason. The OKC starters were very good against the Warriors during the regular season and they posted a 34.8 net rating tonight. This series should be a wild ride. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:39 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 26 points in Game 1 loss
    Stephen Curry scored 26 points during a stunning 108-102 loss to the Thunder in Game 1 on Monday, adding 10 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, seven turnovers and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: Shockingly, Curry was a minus-six in plus-minus as the Warriors blew a 14-point lead. The Thunder should get a lot of credit for their communication on defense to switch on Curry with all of his off-ball movement. Curry's 10 boards were a playoff career-high output on the glass with a lot of lucky bounces going his way. The MVP also played 40 minutes in this game, which looks like it should continue. Expect plenty of monster stat lines better than this one going forward. Curry also set the record for consecutive playoff games with at least one 3-pointer at 45 games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:48 pm
  • Ian Clark feels comfortable around Warriors
    Ian Clark said that he feels "comfortable" playing for the Warriors.

    Advice: And why wouldn't he, really? "These guys and the coaching staff, they make me feel comfortable. And especially with these guys, it’s much easier to play the game," Clark said. "Especially when you know they have confidence in you." He went on to add even more: "They let you play to your strengths, and that’s all that you can ask for when you want to excel on the basketball court," Clark said. "That’s how it was in college, and I can feel myself doing it here." Rotoworld.com May 16, 8:08 am
  • Dwyane Wade says this season 'energized' him
    Dwyane Wade said that this season "energized" him.

    Advice: "[This season] for sure energized me going forward," Wade said. "However long I’m going to play, I’m excited to hopefully play healthy from now on." The story of Wade switching trainers last offseason didn't get enough play in his resurgence, and it was the first time since 2010-11 that he managed to appear in more than 70 regular season. Wade added that he plans to work on his 3-point shot this offseason and anticipates taking more 3PA next year, a potential development that would add value to his fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com May 16, 7:54 am
  • Report: DEN hopes Radicevic at summer league
    The Nuggets are hopeful that 2015 second-round pick Nikola Radicevic will participate in summer league, sources told Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com.

    Advice: In order for this scenario to come to fruition, Radicevic's current team in Spain (Sevilla) will have to clear him to participate. The point guard just returned to action following offseason hip surgery, and as of now, the 22-year-old plans to stay in Spain for the 2016-17 season. Rotoworld.com May 16, 6:11 am
  • Goran Dragic needs 17 FGA to score 16 points
    Goran Dragic scored 16 points on 6-of-17 shooting during Sunday's defeat, adding six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Dragic was coming off a big Game 6 performance but this wasn't his finest hour, as he was torched defensively by Kyle Lowry all game long. The 2014 Most Improved Player is still owed more than $70 million over the next four years, including a final-year player option, but his deal doesn't look bad when you factor in the upcoming salary-cap spikes. Rotoworld.com May 15, 4:26 pm
  • Heat lose Game 7, Wade heads into free agency
    Dwyane Wade's season ended on Sunday in a 116-89 road loss at Toronto, which he finished with 16 points (6-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), four rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: Wade came in with a 5-2 record in Game 7's during his auspicious career, but the short-handed Heat didn't have enough to advance with both Chris Bosh and Hassan Whiteside on the sidelines. The 34-year-old tweaked his right ankle late in the game but it wasn't serious, and he refused to make any excuses after the game, saying, "The better team won." He stayed healthy and productive this season, ensuring that he'll draw plenty of attention this summer as an unrestricted free agent. Rotoworld.com May 15, 4:14 pm
  • Cory Joseph held to one point over 19 minutes
    Cory Joseph was a no-show during Toronto's Game 7 victory, scoring just one point to go with three assists and one steal through 19 minutes of floor time.

    Advice: Joseph went scoreless through the first three quarters of action, and it wasn’t until the nine-minute mark of the fourth quarter that he scored his first point by going 1-of-2 from the line. He also missed all eight of his shot attempts, and while the Raptors were able to pullout a win despite him, he'll need to have a much more impactful performance during the Eastern Conference Finals if the Raptors hope to have any chance of upsetting the Cavs. Rotoworld.com May 15, 4:02 pm
  • Kyle Lowry drops 35, Raptors advance to ECF
    Kyle Lowry was phenomenal during Sunday's Game 7 win over the Heat, scoring 35 points on 11-of-20 shooting to go with seven boards, nine assists, five 3-pointers, four steals and four turnovers through 42 minutes of action.

    Advice: Lowry really took advantage of Miami’s lack of a defensive presence in the post, as he attacked the rack all game long. He also knocked down eight of his 11 freebies, giving him a solid true shooting percentage of 70.5 to go with his 28.7 usage rate. This is the first time in franchise history that the Raptors will be advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals, and that has a lot to do with Lowry, who became the first Raptor in franchise history to score 35-plus points in back-to-back playoff games.
