  • Thaddeus Young could play small forward
    Thaddeus Young could play small forward next season, according to coach Brett Brown.

    Advice: It would make a lot of sense. The Sixers were torched on interior defense and they certainly need more size in the paint. Young has plenty of experience at small forward and would have a seamless transition back to his old role. His 2.11 steals per game ranked third in the NBA and he is the first forward to average over 2.0 per game in a season since 2007-08. Rotoworld.com

  • Warriors still debating on starting center
    Coach Mark Jackson said he's still debating whether to start Jermaine O'Neal or Draymond Green for Game 1 vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: Both players are likely going to see a ton of minutes next to David Lee, but Jackson just needs to figure out how he's going to get production out of his second unit. Green has really picked up his skills on offense, so he might be better suited off the bench and turn in a higher usage rate there. Rotoworld.com
  • Andrew Bynum (knee) ruled out for Round 1
    Andrew Bynum (knee) will not play against the Hawks in the first round of the playoffs.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise and he hasn't seen game action since Mar. 15. Bynum played in just two games since the Pacers brought him on board and they've obviously swung and missed here. The team hasn't been getting much out of their center spot, so Ian Mahinmi could be an X-factor for their success in the postseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Nash says he's 3-4 weeks from being healthy
    Steve Nash (leg, back) said he's 3-4 weeks from being healthy.

    Advice: In his exit interview, he said this season was a "nightmare" and added the Lakers shouldn't be relying on him for next season because he doesn't know what he can bring. Nash did say he'll be back for next season, so the team will have to pay him whether he's healthy or not. He'll be one of the more talked about players in the offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Melo: 'I want to come back' to Knicks
    Carmelo Anthony said on Thursday that he wants to return to the Knicks, but added that he also wants to win next year.

    Advice: "I want to come back. I also want to win," he said. Whether Melo stays with the Knicks will be a hot topic from now until a decision is made, and while the addition of Phil Jackson gives them some hope, he's also excited to become a free agent. He will likely opt out in July and then start testing the market. Yes, the 'Summer of Melo' is approaching quickly. Melo said on Thursday he doesn't care about the money and just wants to win, while the Knicks can offer him more than any other team - five years, $129 million. Rotoworld.com

  • Varejao dresses, gets DNP in home finale
    Anderson Varejao was dressed and ready to play and make one final appearance in front of his home fans on Wednesday, but was left on the bench by coach Mike Brown, who simply chose not to play Varejao in a meaningless blowout win over the Nets. .

    Advice: That was likely Varejao's last game as a Cavalier and would have been an opportunity for the fans to say goodbye to one of the team's better players over the last several years Brown also failed to play wildly popular Zydrunas Ilgauskas back in 2009 on a night he would have broken the team's all-time games played record, a move that drew the public ire of LeBron James at the time. While Brown is a respected NBA coach, it's reasonable to think that his treatment of Ilgauskas and Varejao in these instances might not go unnoticed by some players around the league, and could impact Cleveland's ability to sign free agents at some point down the line.

  • Jordan Crawford drops career-high 41
    Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points along with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

    Advice: You could see him having a big game with the Warriors resting the regulars, but this was better than any of us could have imagined. Harrison Barnes chipped in with 30, while Randy Foye scored 32 and had 11 assists for the Nuggets in the loss. The Warriors are healthy, with the exception of Andrew Bogut, and ready to take on the Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. And that, our friends, is a wrap on the 2013-14 regular season. Rotoworld.com

  • Barton w/ career night, Blazers starters sit
    Will Barton came off the bench for a career-high 23 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers on 7-of-20 shooting.

    Advice: Robin Lopez led the starters in minutes with just 14 of them tonight, but still managed 15 points and nine rebounds, while LaMarcus Aldridge took the entire night off. The Blazers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up against the Warriors, so don't let tonight's strange box score fool you. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Ben McLemore scores career-high 31 points
    Ben McLemore ended his season with a bang on Wednesday during a 104-99 loss to the Suns, scoring a career-high 31 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 19 points on Sunday and figured out how to get his own shot to close the season. McLemore's off-the-ball game needed some work throughout the year and his isolation game was non-existent for much of the season, but he showed some promise. Still, the sample size is too small to make him a target in drafts next season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Duncan, others ready for Spurs playoffs
    Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter sat out on Wednesday, but the Spurs are healthy and ready for their first-round match up with the Mavericks.

    Advice: The Spurs were 4-0 vs. the Mavs this season and the old guys got plenty of rest down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Greg Oden plays 14 minutes in finale
    Greg Oden played 14 minutes in Wednesday's finale and had two points and five rebounds.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra hasn't ruled out starting Oden in playoffs, but says it depends on who they're playing. LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Chris Andersen all took Wednesday off, but it looks like the Heat will be at full strength when they take on the Bobcats in Round 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Harden, other Rockets should be ready
    James Harden, Jeremy Lin, Chandler Parsons and Omer Asik all took Wednesday off in preparation for the playoffs.

    Advice: None of them have a real injury that we know of and it should be all hands on deck as they prepare for the Blazers in Round 1. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • Deron Wiliams should be ready for playoffs
    Deron Williams, Joe Johnson and Mirza Teletovic, along with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett all appear to be healthy and ready for the playoffs.

    Advice: They all got some rest in preparation for the postseason and should all be good to go after Wednesday. Teletovic has missed a pair of games after his wife gave birth, but we expect him to be available for Game 1 against the Raptors, as well. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Thaddeus Young drops 20 & 9 in win over Heat
    Thaddeus Young had 20 points, nine rebounds and two more steals in Wednesday's season finale win over the Heat.

    Advice: The Sixers somehow beat the Heat twice this season, although it's not fair to call the Miami team that took the court tonight the Heat. Henry Sims, MCW, James Anderson, Brandon Davies and Caspar Ware all scored in double figures in the meaningless game. Young had a great season and his steals and threes, along with his strong offense and rebounding, were pleasant surprises this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:56 pm
  • Tim Duncan, Marco Belinelli out for Spurs
    Tim Duncan and Marco Belinelli are out for the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: The kicker is that Gregg Popovich says he has no idea who he's going to start tonight. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:39 pm
  • Jermaine O'Neal out Wednesday for rest
    Jermaine O'Neal will rest on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong will man the frontcourt for the Warriors, whose frontcourt is extremely short-handed without O'Neal, David Lee (rest), Draymond Green (rest) and Andrew Bogut (ribs). 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
    Yesterday, 10:38 am
  • Steve Nash, Chris Kaman both out Wednesday
    Steve Nash (hamstring) and Chris Kaman (calf) will not return for the Lakers' final game on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 40-year-old Nash was never expected to return after taking over the third spot on the NBA's all-time assist leaderboard, and it's uncertain whether he'll retire this summer or attempt a return in 2014-15. Even if he does attempt to return, fantasy owners should be very leery of him on draft day. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Deron Williams (knee) out Wednesday
    Deron Williams (knee) reportedly will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: D-Will played through a sore knee on Tuesday and it must be a real concern if he's sitting out Wednesday's game, as the Nets aren't locked into the fifth seed -- the Wizards can still catch them with a victory and a loss by Brooklyn. With Shaun Livingston (toe) also expected to sit out, Jorge Gutierrez and Marquis Teague will have to take on bigger roles at PG. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:33 am
  • 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
    Yesterday, 8:19 am
  • Deron Williams scores 10 points in loss
    Deron Williams played through a sore knee but had just 10 points, one assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: The Nets wanted to win this game, but may be ready to concede on Wednesday night in order to get their old guys some rest. If you own Deron Williams, watch for updates on Wednesday to find out if he's in or out of the lineup at Cleveland. 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
    Tuesday, 8:21 pm
  • Josh Powell signed by Rockets
    Big man Josh Powell passed his physical and was signed by the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll give them a little depth in the playoffs, but that's about it. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:14 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) has torn labrum
    Carmelo Anthony has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, but he will not require surgery.

    Advice: Melo will be re-evaluated in one month and it's very interesting that an MRI revealed the tear only after he'd played in a number of games to help the Knicks' slim chances of making the playoffs. While his toughness is commendable, the Knicks' medical staff and management have questions to answer about letting their star risk aggravating a serious injury. Carmelo is expected to enter free agency via his early-termination option, and once the playoffs end he'll be the focus of this summer's FA frenzy. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:44 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
    Tuesday, 3:39 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) active Tuesday vs. NYK
    Deron Williams (knee) will play vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Advice: D-Will has been dealing with tendinitis in his right knee and it wouldn't be surprising to see him rest during Wednesday's game, as the Nets aren't likely to take risks with their oft-injured PG. Rotoworld.com
  • 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
    Tuesday, 1:20 pm
  • Spurs Big 3 could all play Wednesday
    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all played on Monday, and all three could play in Wednesday's finale as part of Gregg Popovich's "controlled rest" plan.

    Advice: "You can't just sit for a week and then wait for Sunday and expect to be ready," Ginobili said. "We need to play, go up and down and feel good about ourselves." While their minutes and production might not be through the roof, it does sound like there's a decent chance most of the Spurs will be in action in a meaningless final game against the Lakers. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:35 am
  • 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
    Tuesday, 8:19 am
  • Woodson: Melo 'probably won't play' Tuesday
    Mike Woodson said on Tuesday morning that Carmelo Anthony "probably won't" play against the Nets, and that he will likely shut him down for Wednesday, as well.

    Advice: TNT is getting a dog of a game, as Amare Stoudemire is a game-time decision, while the Nets will be without Shaun Livingston, Mirza Teletovic and Alan Anderson, and also list Deron Williams, Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson as game-time calls. It would take a small miracle to see Melo in uniform at this point, as he deals with a lost season, a sore shoulder and pending free agency. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:15 am
  • Deron Williams a game-time call
    Deron Williams (right knee) is listed as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

    Advice: If he's out due to playoff-prep rest, Marquis Teague would get the start at point guard. Rotoworld.com
  • Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround
    Carmelo Anthony missed shootaround on Tuesday in order to have his right shoulder re-examined.

    Advice: He's listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Nets on TNT, but it would be fairly surprising to see him play. J.R. Smith might take 50 shots tonight, while it's possible Melo has played his last game for the New York Knicks. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Duncan returned to action on Monday April 14. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:21 am
  • Crawford could see a bump in minutes on Wed
    Jordan Crawford scored just three points in seven minutes on Monday, but could see a bump in minutes now that the Warriors have clinched the No. 6 spot in the West.

    Advice: Mark Jackson said that a lot of guys could rest on Wednesday and Crawford fits the description of a season finale special. He comes with no guarantees, but he fits the profile of a high-upside guy that owners may want to reach for. Steve Blake could also get some extra run, though at his age the Dubs may decide not to run him quite as hard. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:46 pm
  • Tim Duncan plays 30 minutes vs. Rockets
    Tim Duncan played 30 minutes against the Rockets on Monday, scoring 12 points with nine boards and two assists.

    Advice: The Spurs had nothing to play for and they still gave Duncan solid minutes. They will close out the regular season on Wednesday vs. the Lakers and we would be very surprised to see him in the lineup for that one. His fantasy owners can make a proactive cut if there is anything promising on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:00 pm
  • Jermaine O'Neal will start for Bogut on Mon.
    Jermaine O'Neal will start in place of Andrew Bogut (ribs) on Monday.

    Advice: He's likely looking at several starts with Bogut suffering a cracked rib. The Warriors have managed his minutes throughout the year and haven't been fans of playing him in back-to-back sets, but they kind of have to now with their playoff seed at stake. He's a low-end option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
  • Steve Nash and Chris Kaman out on Monday
    Steve Nash (hamstring) and Chris Kaman (calf) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: Nash is also likely to sit out for the rest of the season, according to coach Mike D'Antoni. He turned 40 this season and it showed as he was unable to finish just about every game he played. Kendall Marshall will start while Jordan Farmar will get plenty of chances to score and hit triples. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Duncan will play vs. Rockets
    Tim Duncan will start against the Rockets on Monday night.

    Advice: It's Bizarro World in Houston with the Spurs' Big Three all playing while Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Tiago Splitter and Patty Mills are sitting out. Duncan should be in all lineups tonight, but we would be a little shocked to see him play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:05 pm
  • Josh Powell planning to sign with Rockets
    The Rockets plan to sign Josh Powell for the rest of the season.

    Advice: The Rockets are looking to add another big man and would probably be best suited to get a player out of the NBA so he can be eligible for the playoffs. Powell has been out of the league since 2010-11 and has played on five teams since 2005-06. The 31-year-old big man was cut by the Knicks in training camp. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:31 am
  • Popovich hints he won't rest players Monday
    Gregg Popovich hinted that he won't rest anyone during Monday's game vs. Houston.

    Advice: Pop emphasized the need to be sharp and in sync for the playoffs, and with two games left on the schedule he may ease up on his extra-cautious approach to resting players. We should get more concrete information after the Spurs warm up for Monday's game, so check back later tonight for updates. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:31 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
    Monday, 9:08 am
  • Deron Williams returned to action on Sunday April 13. Rotoworld.com
  • Ben McLemore drops 19 points vs. Timberwolves
    Kings rookie Ben McLemore scored 19 points on 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with three 3-pointers on Sunday, marking his second-highest scoring total of the season.

    Advice: His 39 minutes were second only to Derrick Williams and it's encouraging to see him catch fire from the field, since his 37.0 percent shooting is a glaring problem for a 'shooting guard'. He was the No. 7 pick in the 2013 draft and the Kings have played him 26 minutes per game as a rookie, so he should get no lack of opportunities during his sophomore season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:40 pm
  • Jermaine O'Neal logs 20 minutes in return
    Jermaine O'Neal (rest) was back in action vs. the Trail Blazers, scoring six points with three rebounds off the bench.

    Advice: He played 20 minutes but the Warriors may rest him again on Monday in the second half of a back-to-back set. If he does sit out Marreese Speights will resurface in the rotation after going scoreless in a momentary cameo on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) may have MRI
    Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) said that he may have an MRI in the next few days, and he'll consult with Knicks' doctors about a plan for the final two games.

    Advice: The surprising part is that he hasn't already had an MRI given the uncertain nature of the injury, which has been described as a "strain" and a "dead arm." With potential free agency looming it's conceivable that caution will keep Melo on the sidelines the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:53 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) logs 28 minutes
    Carmelo Anthony's shoulder injury didn't give him too much trouble vs. the Bulls, as he scored 17 on 7-of-13 shooting in 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Knicks have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, but coach Mike Woodson expects Melo to play in every game down the stretch. "He hasn't indicated to me that he's going to sit down," Woodson said. "That's Melo's. He's been there all year, he's had a helluva season for us." That's somewhat of an understatement, as he's second in the league in scoring at 27.6 points per game. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:07 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) looks great in return
    Deron Williams (knee) returned on Sunday, as expected, and scored 16 points with four 3-pointers, five assists and four steals in a nine-point win vs. Orlando.

    Advice: D-Will played a game-high 35 minutes and his knee didn't seem to bother him, but we'll monitor his status as a precaution for Tuesday's home game vs. the Knicks. Joe Johnson added 17 points with three 3-pointers of his own in the victory. Rotoworld.com
  • Melo, Knicks eliminated from playoffs
    Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday when the Hawks beat the Heat in Atlanta.

    Advice: The shutdown alert is on for Melo, who is dealing with a sore shoulder. If the Knicks still had something to play for, Melo would be a lock to go, but at this point, you have to think his status for his final two games is completely up in the air. Only use him if you know for a fact that he'll be in the lineup on Sunday and Wednesday. This is the first time in his 11-year career Melo won't be in the playoffs, but at least we know he won't have to worry about being knocked out in the first round again. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:01 pm
  • Ben McLemore ejected after two technicals
    Ben McLemore was ejected from Saturday's game after picking up two technical fouls, and he finished the game with 14 points, two 3-pointers and one rebound in 32 minutes.

    Advice: McLemore's second technical was assessed after he pushed J.J. Redick in the face, though it's unlikely to result in any further punishment or suspension. Travis Outlaw and Jared Cunningham added six points apiece to lead the Kings' reserves, but it wasn't nearly enough to steal a road win vs. the Clippers. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:52 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
    Saturday, 3:17 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Deron Williams (knee) is expected to return vs. the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: Jason Kidd said that Shaun Livingston (toe) and Alan Anderson (abdomen) are the only unavailable players, so presumably D-Will practiced on Saturday without any problems. Cautious owners should confirm his status after Sunday's shootaround. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:01 am
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) avoiding tests
    Carmelo Anthony said that he might have more tests on his shoulder after the season, but he doesn't believe that it's as serious as the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered last year.

    Advice: "This year it's not the same. The pain is different," Anthony said. "What is the test going to do at this point? If they say it's really bad, I'm still not going to sit out. I'd rather to wait until it's all over." While his single-minded focus on the playoffs is commendable, his agent must be praying that he doesn't aggravate the injury -- Melo's early-termination option is poised to make him a FA this summer. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:46 am
  • Will Barton carves out 10-minute bench role
    Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts is pleased with the development of SG Will Barton, who has claimed a 10-minute role off the bench.

    Advice: "Will is more in control this season," Stotts said. Barton is averaging 3.6 points on 42.6 percent shooting this season and there's a good chance that Portland will guarantee his third year before the July 31 deadline. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:23 am
  • 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
