  • Amare Stoudemire plays in finale
    Amare Stoudemire played 20 minutes in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, scoring eight points with five boards and one assist.

    Advice: It was a big positive to see him even suit up in both games of a back-to-back set and he finished this season quite well. Stoudemire only missed two games since Mar. 1 and they were as a precaution, so the Knicks managing his minutes earlier worked out nicely. He had very little fantasy value coming into the season, but this year will put him on the radar as a late-round pick next year. Rotoworld.com
  • Paul Millsap should be ready for playoffs
    Paul Millsap rested on Wednesday, but all indications are that he's ready to go for the playoffs.

    Advice: He's dealing with a sore thumb, but it will take a lot more than that to keep him out of the postseason. If you're in a playoff league, draft him as you normally would. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Bradley Beal leads Wiz to win with 27
    Bradley Beal hit 10-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 27 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Celtics.

    Advice: The Nets appeared to tank in order to ensure a matchup with the Raptors instead of the Bulls, leaving the Wizards to play Chicago in Round 1 of the playoffs. Beal is certainly in good form right now, and the Wiz will need everything he has against the Bulls. Trevor Booker, Trevor Ariza, Marcin Gortat (double-double), John Wall and Nene were all in double figures tonight, and the Wizards are pretty healthy heading into the postseason. Rotoworld.com
  • Troy Daniels scores career-high 22 in loss
    Troy Daniels got a start for the Rockets on Wednesday and had a career-high 22 points, five assists and six 3-pointers in a loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: Don't feel bad if you've never heard of him, as they signed him in February and called him up from the D-League last week. Patrick Beverley had 14 points and two 3-pointers, Dwight Howard hit just 1-of-5 shots for seven points, four boards and three blocks, Terrence Jones added 17 points and eight rebounds, Donatas Motiejunas had 11 points and 10 boards in 17 minutes, and Jordan Hamilton had 14 points and four 3-pointers in the meaningless loss. The Rockets will face the Blazers in Round 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
  • DeAndre Jordan to start, won't play much
    DeAndre Jordan is expected to start to keep his games played streak alive, but isn't expected to play a lot of minutes.

    Advice: If you can still sub him out, it's probably a good idea. Rotoworld.com
  • Rodney Stuckey will not play on Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey will not play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: There has been no reason given on his status and it might just be rest. Stuckey finished the season on a high note with some solid scoring performances, but his game just doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is starting tonight. Rotoworld.com
  • Troy Daniels getting the start
    Troy Daniels will start with Pat Beverley, Omri Casspi, Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones.

    Advice: With Chandler Parsons and James Harden resting, the Rockets will get some of their bench guys some run. Daniels has been bombing triples all year in the D-League and will have his best chance to have a good game in the NBA tonight. Rotoworld.com
  • 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

  • Luis Scola, Roy Hibbert starting for Pacers
    Luis Scola will join George Hill, Evan Turner, Rasual Butler and Roy Hibbert in the starting five for the Pacers tonight.

    Advice: Scola and Turner look like decent fantasy plays tonight, but we'd stay away from the rest of them. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:52 pm
  • Korver starting, starters to see fewer mins.
    Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott and Pero Antic will start against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The starters will likely have some limited minutes tonight, so fantasy owners might want to watch out for guys like Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Mike Scott should still be solid and could have a nice line. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:42 pm
  • Paul Millsap out for ATL, others 'available'
    Paul Millsap is expected to rest on Wednesday night against the Bucks, while the rest of the Hawks should be "available."

    Advice: Mike Scott looks like a good bet for success tonight, but while guys like Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver and Pero Antic are available, that doesn't mean they'll play heavy minutes. Be careful when selecting Hawks in daily lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 2:53 pm
  • Raptors to deploy regular starters Wednesday
    The Raptors will use their regular starting lineup on Wednesday, though coach Dwane Casey will monitor his key players' minutes.

    Advice: "We don't want to run them into the ground but we're competing," Casey said. "We want to stay in compete mode." He's been consistent in the opinion that his team isn't good enough to flip a switch in the playoffs, so guys like Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan have continued to play heavy minutes as the Raptors fought their way into the East's third seed. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:50 am
  • Chandler Parsons out Wednesday for rest
    Chandler Parsons will rest during Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Parsons recently battled minor hip and wrist injuries but he'll have enough time to recover before the start of the playoffs. Guys like Francisco Garcia and Omri Casspi will take on bigger roles with Parsons and James Harden (rest) both out on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
  • James Harden, Chandler Parsons out Wednesday
    James Harden and Chandler Parsons will both be rested for the Rockets' season finale.

    Advice: The Rockets own the tie-breaker over the Blazers so Houston can't drop down the seeding, which makes it perfectly reasonable for Harden (ankle) and Parsons (wrist) to get some rest. Neither guy is in danger of missing Game 1 of their first-round series vs. Portland. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:38 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
    Today, 10:29 am
  • Eric Gordon to have knee surgery Wednesday
    Eric Gordon will have arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday to clean up his left knee, but he's expected to be 100 percent healthy for training camp.

    Advice: Gordon has never had surgery on his left knee before, though his right knee has given him trouble throughout his brief career. He averaged 15.4 points per game this season but shot only 43.6 percent from the field, and returned season-long 10th-round value. Rotoworld.com

  • Greg Oden (illness, back) could return Wed.
    Greg Oden (stomach virus, back) is listed as a game-time decision on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since March 26 and isn't likely to play more than a handful of minutes, but his return would be a welcome sight for the Heat as they prepare for a first-round matchup vs. either the Wizards or Bobcats. Rotoworld.com

  • Channing Frye hopes to sign extension w/ Suns
    Channing Frye, who has a $6.8 million player option next season, would like to negotiate a contract extension with the Suns.

    Advice: "I'd love to stay here. It's up to them and their future and what they want to do," Frye said. "I love wearing this uniform. I think I take a little more pride in it than everyone else because I'm from here." He's averaged 11.2 points and 5.1 rebounds while starting all 82 games for Phoenix (he's expected to start Wednesday), an amazing feat after missing the 2012-13 season due to an enlarged heart. Rotoworld.com
  • DeAndre Jordan with 13 & 6 in win
    DeAndre Jordan had 13 points, six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's win, and will be getting some votes for the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

    Advice: He was a pleasant fantasy surprise this season, but could take it easy on Wednesday night. The Clippers can get the No. 2 seed with a win and a Thunder loss, but OKC tips off at 8 p.m. ET in Detroit. If they're up big, or have already won when LAC tips off, the Clippers will literally have nothing to play for. And we're guessing Doc Rivers will give his big names a rest if that's the case, and possibly even if the Thunder lose. Rotoworld.com
  • Amare Stoudemire scores 14 in win
    Amare Stoudemire played 21 minutes on Tuesday and had 14 points, three rebounds and a block.

    Advice: Mike Woodson left it up to Amare as to whether he played or not tonight, and he looked pretty good at times. It would be a little surprising to see Stoudemire play in Wednesday's finale, although it's still possible. Either way, look for Cole Aldrich, who had 13 & 13 tonight, to play well again tomorrow. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:21 pm
  • Amare Stoudemire will start Tuesday's game
    Amare Stoudemire will start at PF vs. the Nets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was a game-time decision but coach Mike Woodson said Amare would determine his own status, so apparently he felt good enough to play. Whether he suits up again on Wednesday is less certain, as is his long-term future in the NBA -- Amare said on Tuesday that he'll consider leaving to play for his team in Israel after the 2014-15 season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:39 pm
  • Amare Stoudemire may leave to play in Israel
    Amare Stoudemire suggested that he might leave the NBA to play in Israel once his contract with the Knicks expires in 2015.

    Advice: Stoudemire is co-owner of Hopoel Jerusalem, a team which finished first in the Israeli league this summer. "We'll see,'' Stoudemire said. "You can't rule anything out. The future is unknown and so if I have an opportunity to [play in Israel] and am still in great health, it would be great." The very possibility of Amare heading to Israel will grab headlines but we won't read too much into this until the 2014-15 season begins winding down. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:20 pm
  • Amare Stoudemire a game-time call vs. Nets
    Amare Stoudemire joins the list of game-time decisions for Tuesday, as coach Mike Woodson says it's up to Amare as to whether or not he plays.

    Advice: And given that we all now know that if Stoudemire sits out, it's because he didn't want to play, we're guessing he'll suit up for at least a few minutes. But again, it's up to him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:19 am
  • Chandler Parsons scores 21 points in return
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing 40 minutes for 21 points, seven boards, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had a couple minor injuries over the weekend and the Rockets decided to hold him out of the lineup. Parsons has been a minutes monster with 37.6 per game this season, which ranks seventh in the NBA. The Rockets have nothing left to play for, so Parsons' status for Wednesday's finale against the Pelicans will be up in the air. Rotoworld.com
  • Bradley Beal doesn't look sick on Monday
    Bradley Beal (illness) played 26 minutes against the Heat during an easy 114-93 win on Sunday, scoring 15 points with three boards, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He started hot and scored all 15 points before halftime. Beal had been feeling ill today, but he was still able to go through shootaround and said he was going to play all day. He should be in the lineup on Wednesday with the Wizards needing that game for seeding purposes. Rotoworld.com
  • Dwyane Wade plays 18 minutes, scores nine
    Dwyane Wade started at small forward on Monday vs. the Wizards, scoring nine points with three assists and two steals in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He probably would have been closer to 23-27 minutes tonight, but the Heat were blown out 114-93. With tonight's loss, Miami is now locked in as the two seed, which increases the probability Wade sits on Wednesday night. His fantasy owners can probably make a proactive cut at this point. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:19 pm
  • Chandler Parsons 'good to go'
    It appears that Chandler Parsons will play on Monday.

    Advice: He missed his last game with a hip and wrist injury, but looks "good to go" after his pre-game warmups. Rotoworld.com
  • Chandler Parsons is a game-time call vs. SA
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) is a "true" game-time decision to face the Spurs on Monday, according to coach Kevin McHale.

    Advice: He went through shootaround today and said he'll give it a go. The Rockets have a lot to play for because they're just 0.5 games ahead of Portland and the better record between the two will hold home-court advantage against the other. Omri Casspi would start should Parsons sit out. Rotoworld.com
  • Dwyane Wade will start vs. Wizards on Monday
    Dwyane Wade will start against the Wizards on Monday night.

    Advice: He's expected to have a minutes restriction tonight, but he should still have a lot of responsibilities with LeBron James and Chris Bosh sitting out. Wade played 23 minutes on Saturday and was still able to score 24 points, so his fantasy owners should throw him out there in their lineups tonight. Although, he's almost a lock to rest on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:44 pm
  • Bradley Beal (illness) vows to play vs. Heat
    Bradley Beal participated in Monday's shootaround despite feeling ill, and he said he'll be ready to go vs. the visiting Heat.

    Advice: "I'll be fine. I'm good," Beal said. "Whenever you play the Heat, I always play like it's a championship game." A flu has been making the rounds in D.C., affecting Trevor Ariza last week as well as some assistant coaches, but it doesn't sound like it will cost Beal any games. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:19 am
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) may play vs. Wizards
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) made it through Saturday's game unscathed, clearing the way for him to play again on Monday.

    Advice: "He probably felt like he should have been cleared a week ago, but we wanted to be very patient with him," said coach Erik Spoelstra. Wade looked terrific in 23 minutes of action in his return and the Heat may bump up his playing time to ensure that he's ready for the postseason, but he's always a DNP risk so owners should confirm his status before tip-off. In an ironic twist, Wade has better odds of playing than fellow stars LeBron James and Chris Bosh, both of whom could use some rest. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:16 am
  • Greg Oden (illness) out again vs. Washington
    Greg Oden (illness) didn't travel for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Oden's illness kept him in Miami for the past two games, though he wouldn't have played anyway due to his ongoing back injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Chandler Parsons (hip) aims to play vs. Spurs
    Chandler Parsons (hip, wrist) participated in Monday's shootaround and said he'll "give it a go" despite still being sore.

    Advice: All signs point to Parsons being availabile vs. the Spurs, and the Rockets have plenty of incentive to deploy him since they're just half a game ahead of the fifth-seed Blazers. Check back closer to tip-off for final confirmation. Rotoworld.com
  • Paul Millsap, Korver, Carroll rested Monday
    Paul Millsap (rest) will not play vs. the Bobcats on Monday, and Mike Scott will take his place in the starting lineup.

    Advice: The Hawks are also resting Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll in their penultimate game of the regular season. That leaves them with a starting lineup of Jeff Teague, Lou Williams, Cartier Martin, Mike Scott and Pero Antic, but this arrangement will end abruptly unless key starters are rested again on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:50 am
  • Hawks rest Kyle Korver, start Lou Williams
    The Hawks will rest Kyle Korver on Monday with Lou Williams starting at SG in his place.

    Advice: Korver is averaging 35 minutes per game in April but the Hawks are now gearing up for the playoffs and it makes sense to give their veterans some rest in a game with nothing at stake. Korver is shooting just 38.3 percent in the Hawks' past seven games so hopefully the rest will get him back on track. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:47 am
  • Kyle Lowry fouls out, scores 28 points in win
    Kyle Lowry scored 28 points with two boards, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: He fouled out which was his sixth time fouling out on the season. Lowry actually ranks third in the NBA in fouls per game and 10th in technical fouls, so he's certainly on the refs' radar. Fouling issues aside, Lowry has been a monster all season and he's a big reason why the Raptors will have a home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:12 pm
  • Doc Rivers praises DeAndre Jordan's tenacity
    In a recent interview, coach Doc Rivers praised DeAndre Jordan's durability.

    Advice: "He's one of those guys that does have bangs and bruises and sprains," Rivers said. "He just keeps playing though them... He had a root canal one morning before practice and practiced the whole practice. It was great. He didn't talk a lot which was even better. He didn't complain once at the refs." DeAndre has truly blossomed under coach Doc Rivers, leading the league in total rebounds (1098) and sitting second in total blocks (201). That's pretty good for a guy that was drafted outside of the 10th round in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
  • Channing Frye breaks out of funk w/ 5 threes
    Channing Frye hit 7-of-13 shots and five 3-pointers for 21 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Saturday's loss to the Mavericks.

    Advice: Frye has been in a serious slump for the Suns, but got hot early and was able to keep it going. The Suns are still battling Memphis for the last playoff spot available, so Frye will continue to play. But the fact remains that tonight's game might have been more of a fluke than anything else, given his poor play over the last several weeks. Rotoworld.com
  • Dwyane Wade plays very well in return/loss
    Dwyane Wade hit 10-of-14 shots for 24 points, three rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in his return from a nine-game absence on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wade looked fantastic in just 23 minutes, but the Hawks won, securing their spot in the playoffs, while eliminating the Knicks. The Heat are now tied with the Pacers for the best record in the East, so it's possible that Wade and LeBron James will play in the Heat's final two games of the season (Monday and Wednesday). The Pacers hold the tie breaker for the No. 1 seed over the Heat if they finish with the same record. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:56 pm
  • Brad Beal scores 26 with two 3-pointers
    Bradley Beal hit 12-of-22 shots and two 3-pointers for 26 points, three rebounds and five assists in Saturday's easy win over the Bucks.

    Advice: That's a great line and nice shooting night for Beal, who has overcome early injury concerns to have a nice season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:47 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan struggles w/ intentional fouls
    DeAndre Jordan was intentionally fouled during Saturday's game vs. Sacramento, making 3-of-11 shots at the FT line to finish with 21 points, nine rebounds and seven blocks in 34 minutes of action.

    Advice: He was 9-of-13 from the field to balance things out offensively, but the success of the Kings' strategy will not go unnoticed by the teams L.A. might face in the playoffs. He's shooting a mere 42.5 percent at the line since the All-Star break, as his fantasy owners know all too well. Rotoworld.com
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will return Saturday
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will return from a nine-game absence vs. the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: "I'm going to give it a go tonight," Wade said before the game. "Now it's about getting comfortable and pushing it to see where I'm at." Wade has been very effective when active this year, but he's missed a third of the season and his health will be paramount for the Heat as they try to win a third straight championship. Check back after the game to see how he holds up. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:58 pm
  • Chandler Parsons out w/ wrist & hip injuries
    Chandler Parsons (wrist, hip) will not play in Saturday's home game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: He scored 27 points on Friday and his absence appears to be more of a precaution than a medical necessity. With Francisco Garcia (back) also out of commission, the Rockets will have to rely on guys like Omri Casspi and Jordan Hamilton for production on the wings. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:31 pm
  • Greg Oden sidelined with stomach virus
    Greg Oden didn't travel with the Heat for Saturday's game due to a stomach illness.

    Advice: Oden was already unlikely to play again this season because of a back injury, so his illness is a mere blip on the radar. It's unclear how much he'll be able to give the Heat in the playoffs, but they'd probably settle for a handful of minutes in key matchups. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey starts again, scores 22 points
    Rodney Stuckey started again on Friday vs. the Bulls during a 106-98 loss, scoring 22 points with one board, one assist, one steal and no turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He did not take any 3-pointers tonight, which has been a big reason why Stuckey hasn't made much of a splash in fantasy leagues from an overall value standpoint. Josh Smith (knee) doesn't have a timetable to return, so Stuckey could be able to score in the high teens the rest of the way with little else. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:06 pm
  • James Harden posts big 33-point line in loss
    James Harden (shin) filled up the stat sheet in a tough 112-110 loss to the Wolves on Friday, scoring 33 points with eight boards, 10 assists, six steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-14 from the field and 15-of-19 from the line in 46 minutes.

    Advice: He had a scary shin injury on Wednesday and obviously 46 minutes tonight puts any concern to bed. Harden is on some kind of tear since the break and he continues to post massive stat lines. Tonight's loss is huge, so expect Harden to play in every game the rest of the way starting with a game on Saturday vs. the Pelicans. It's worth mentioning Harden is scoring 28 points per game since the break on just 17 field goal attempts per, which is kind of absurd. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:16 pm
  • Chandler Parsons turns in a big line
    Chandler Parsons scored 27 points with seven boards, seven assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He was in a bit of a slump in March with just a field goal percentage of 41.1 percent for 14.0 points per game, but he's rolling again. In his last five, Parsons averaged 20.0 points, 4.4 boards, 5.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.6 triples on 46.6 percent from the field. He's a middle-class man's version of Kawhi Leonard with how his game translates to fantasy so well. Rotoworld.com
  • Millsap posts 27+10; ATL magic number is one
    Paul Millsap scored 27 points on 10-of-19 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in the Hawks' win over the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Millsap has been on cruise control for the most part since Al Horford went down and is going to finish up in the top-20. The Hawks' magic number is down to one with the win and they still have three games to play. Jeff Teague added 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting (8-of-8 FTs) with three assists, one steal and one block, and Kyle Korver couldn't find the range with three points on 1-of-8 shooting (no treys), seven boards and a block in the win.

  • Amare Stoudemire plays 40 minutes, scores 24
    Amare Stoudemire played a season-high 40 minutes against the Raptors on Friday for 24 points, 11 boards and one block on 10-of-14 shooting.

    Advice: Is it 2008 or something? Stoudemire played more than 32 minutes just once this season and the Knicks let him loose in a must-win game. STAT has been very good since he rested on Mar. 31, averaging 16.3 points, 6.5 boards, 1.3 blocks and 0.3 steals on 65.8 percent shooting in his last four. The team should play him in all three of the final games this season, which makes him a nice start in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
  • Brad Beal drops 16 points in win over Magic
    Bradley Beal scored 16 points during Friday's 96-86 win over the Magic to go with four boards, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He took a very ugly fall after Kyle O'Quinn fouled him on a dunk attempt and the training staff looked at him for a brief moment. Beal was fine and was able to play his normal amount of playing time. The Wizards are only two games behind the Nets for the fifth seed and hold the sixth seed with a one-game lead over the Bobcats. Rotoworld.com
  • James Harden will play on Friday night
    James Harden will play against the Wolves on Friday night.

    Advice: He suffered a shin injury on Wednesday, which looked really bad and he did have to go to the locker room. He's been a top-five player since the All-Star break and has been posting massive stats. Get him in your lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:18 pm
  • James Harden battling a bruised shin
    Updating a previous item, James Harden was battling a bruised shin on Wednesday.

    Advice: The injury was originally reported as a knee injury. Obviously a shin bruise is much less of a concern, but it doesn't mean Harden will play full minutes on Friday. The Rockets will be looking to get him to 100 percent ahead of next week's playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:13 am
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) to miss 9th straight
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play in Friday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: It's Wade's ninth straight game on the sidelines and the 28th game missed overall. At this point, it looks like the hamstring is a real issue and not just the standard rest he typically takes ahead of the playoffs. Look for the Heat to use Toney Douglas as their starting off-guard once again. Greg Oden (back) is out, Chris Anderson (knee) is a game-time call and Udonis Haslem (illness) is probable. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:08 am
  • Eric Gordon left knee woes are new
    The scope Eric Gordon will undergo next week is the first surgery on his left knee.

    Advice: Gordon's right knee is the one that has been surgically repaired previously. So if there's a shred of good news here, it's that this is only a scope and the right knee is OK. Still, Dynasty owners should note that Gordon has never played in more than 64 games in a season and his knee woes are chronic. He's not going to be an appealing 2014-15 fantasy play. Rotoworld.com
