  • Jeff Green scores 11 in start
    Jeff Green got the start on Friday in a loss to the Blazers, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He had a better chance to perform with the Clippers banged up in the last two. Green will head into free agency afters showing some promise with the Grizzlies after they lost Marc Gasol (foot). His fantasy value hinges on his destination perhaps more than any other player. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:25 pm
  • Josh Richardson hurts his shoulder
    Josh Richardson (shoulder) said nothing will keep him out in Game 7 on Sunday.

    Advice: He hurt his left shoulder in the last minute of the game and had ice on it after the win. Richardson's defense was very good at times and he has leapfrogged Tyler Johnson (shoulder). Richardson finished with six points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Rivers, JJ, LMAM, Green & Jordan starting
    Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Luc Mbah a Moute, Jeff Green and DeAndre Jordan will start on Friday.

    Advice: He Clippers are going bigger in this game, but don't expect the overall minutes to change. Green should still be very busy in the first unit and obviously there's no need to panic on Jamal Crawford. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:28 pm
  • Stanley Johnson may not play summer league
    Stanley Johnson may not play in the summer league because Stan Van Gundy wants him to focus on skill development.

    Advice: "My concern for him is I know Stanley’s mentality," Van Gundy said. "I want him working on things he needs to work on. I don’t want to put him in situations where his concern is doing what he can do well right now to try to win that game." Van Gundy added that Johnson needs to work on his shooting, footwork and ballhandling this summer. Still just 19 years old, the future is very bright for Johnson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:16 am
  • Evan Turner hints about his future with BOS
    Evan Turner indicated that his positive experience in Boston will play heavily into his decision as a free agent this summer.

    Advice: "It’s definitely going to play a lot," Turner said. "Players definitely play their best when they’re happy. Most importantly, I found a situation and coach that tended to myself, and my teammates, to what they do well." Regardless of what Turner decides, he's going to get a serious raise this summer after a promising postseason with averages 13.2 points, 5.7 boards, 4.5 assists and 1.3 steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:05 am
  • Kent Bazemore puts a nice bow on his series
    Kent Bazemore scored 15 points with four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: He's making some money this month. In his six playoff games, Bazemore averaged 14.0 points, 7.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll have a huge role in the next round and will likely be starting off on LeBron James. Expect him to play minutes in the mid 30s. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:07 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 16 points with nine boards
    Kyle Korver made all four shots from the field and all four from the line for 14 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Not bad. He drove his fantasy owners crazy during the regular season, but Korver is kind of rolling now when it counts for the Hawks. In his six games during this series, Korver averaged 12.2 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys on a pristine 67.3 true shooting percentage. He'll be very important in the second round and will likely have a mini 3-point contest in a head-to-head matchup with J.R. Smith at shooting guard. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:05 pm
  • Evan Turner scores eight in off finale
    Evan Turner's solid series ended on a down note during a loss to the Hawks on Thursday, making 4-of-17 from the field for eight points with seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He was a big part of the rotation due to Avery Bradley (hamstring) going down. Turner surpassed most expectations to help his value heading into free agency, especially late in the season and in the postseason. In his 12 starts this regular season, Turner averaged 15.0 points, 6.0 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.6 treys. Several teams will be after The Villain. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:50 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko scores 13 points
    Jonas Jerebko scores 13 points with one rebound, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes during a loss to the Hawks on Thursday.

    Advice: The Celtics gave him some minutes at small forward with some foul trouble for Jae Crowder. Jerebko benefited from the matchup in the postseason and certainly because of Avery Bradley (hamstring) missing time -- the Celtics needed spacing. He'll be under contract next year and will likely slide down the depth chart again. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:46 pm
  • Mbah a Moute to return to the rotation Gm 6?
    Doc Rivers said that there were stretches he could have used Luc Mbah a Moute's defense during Wednesday's Game 5 loss.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute picked up a DNP-CD as Rivers tried and go with more floor spacers, but given that the result was a loss, it sounds like Mbah a Moute will be back in the rotation for Game 6. Still, even when given the minutes, Mbah a Moute rarely makes a meaningful contribution to the stat sheet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:29 pm
  • Evan Turner will have suitors in free agency
    There will be several teams interested in Evan Turner when he becomes a free agent this summer, according to league sources.

    Advice: Turner has resurrected his career as the Celtics sixth man and it hasn't gone unnoticed around the league. "He’s done everything they’ve asked him to do and from what I hear, hasn’t grumbled a day about it," one rival executive said. "Every team needs a guy like that in their locker room." Turner looks to be in line for a raise this summer and could see a minor boost in fantasy value if he finds a job as a starter. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:00 am
  • Brandon Rush scores 15 points in blowout
    In his highest-scoring game since Jan. 8, Brandon Rush came off the bench on Wednesday for 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Rush scored 10 of his points in the second half, during what was essentially garbage time, but it's still an encouraging sign for the Warriors. The easy win gives Golden State some extra rest before their second-round matchup vs. either the Clippers or Blazers, and it provides an emotional lift for a team that's playing without their MVP. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 17 points in futile effort
    Jeff Green scored 17 points off the bench during Game 5, making 6-of-10 shots with six rebounds, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Blake Griffin's quad injury has prematurely ended his season, leaving Green a big opportunity even if he isn't starting. He can't fill the void by himself, and more minutes are also available for Wes Johnson (five points, five rebounds) and Paul Pierce (two rebounds), but Green is easily the most palatable DFS option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:02 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute picks up DNP-CD
    Luc Mbah a Moute did not leave the Clippers' bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute was bumped from the starting lineup in favor of Paul Pierce tonight, and it's anyone's guess whether he'll play in a must-win Game 6 on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:00 pm
  • Moe Harkless double-doubles in Game 5 win
    Moe Harkless double-doubled in 33 minutes of action on Wednesday, posting 19 points and 10 rebounds while shooting 7-of-14 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line.

    Advice: Harkless scored 17 of his points in the first half, unexpectedly carrying a sluggish Blazers' offense that picked up steam after halftime. Harkless gave L.A. problems with his defensive versatility and speed in transition, and he even knocked down two 3-pointers to round out a thoroughly impressive evening. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 pm
  • Josh Richardson earns 31 minutes vs. Hornets
    Josh Richardson logged 31 minutes off the bench during Game 5, finishing with eight points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: The Heat had scored at least 100 points in 17 consecutive home games, with the league's most efficient offense since the All-Star break, but the Hornets tightened their grip defensively tonight. Richardson drew the ire of Dwyane Wade after a poor shot late in the fourth quarter, but he played well overall and should see a similar role in a must-win game at the Time Warner Cable arena on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:57 pm
  • Evan Turner scores 15 points in loss
    Evan Turner scored 15 points in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Hawks, shooting 5-of-10 from the field.

    Advice: He was the best player on the floor for the Celtics tonight, as Isaiah Thomas (ankle) couldn't get anything to go on the offensive end. Turner added five rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes, and he's still a must-start player in all formats until further notice. If Thomas is unable to play in Game 6 on Thursday, expect Turner to run the offense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko slows down, scores six points
    Jonas Jerebko cooled off in Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, scoring six points on 2-of-4 shooting.

    Advice: The Celtics lost by 27 points, so Jerebko only played 24 minutes and added eight rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals. His DFS owners were expecting a lot more from him tonight after posting two straight double-doubles, but no one on the Celtics played well in Game 5 except for Evan Turner. If anything, hopefully this will keep his price low in DFS. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:22 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 13, adds five steals
    Kyle Korver scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, adding two boards, one assist, five steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He averaged 0.8 steals during the regular season, so to see him record five tonight seems like a fluke. However, Korver has now scored in double digits in four straight games after being held to two points in Game 1, so he's heating up at the perfect time for the Hawks. He's also hit 16 3-pointers over his last four games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Kent Bazemore scores 16, Hawks win 110-83
    Kent Bazemore scored 16 points to lead the Hawks to a 110-83 win over the Celtics in Game 5 on Tuesday, giving them a 3-2 series lead.

    Advice: He's the definition of a streaky player, as he needed just 23 minutes to score 16 points tonight after scoring just five points in 40 minutes in Game 4. That inconsistency makes him hard to trust, but the upside is clearly there if you deploy him on the right night. Bazemore added five boards, one block and four 3-pointers on 6-of-14 shooting. He was listed as probable on the injury report due to a lingering knee issue, but he obviously looked fine tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Jeff Green expected to start Wednesday
    Jeff Green is expected to move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5 against Portland.

    Advice: Blake Griffin (quad) is going to miss the remainder of the postseason for Los Angeles, so the starting four-spot is Green's to lose. He'll be taking on a much larger role on offense with Chris Paul (hand) also done for the year, so he'll be a reasonable guy to consider in DFS with his minutes set to spike to the mid-30s. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:32 pm
  • Kent Bazemore feeling good ahead of Game 5
    Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Kent Bazmore (knee) is feeling good ahead of Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bazemore is listed as probable with a knee injury, but it's nothing that will hold him out of such an important game on Tuesday. Bazemore is averaging 13.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers in the thus far in the playoffs and is a strong DFS play on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:52 am
  • Jeff Green scores 17 points vs. Blazers
    Jeff Green scored 17 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He is likely headed for a bigger role in Game 5. Chris Paul (hand) won't be playing while Blake Griffin (quad) could miss some action, as well. Green does a lot of scoring in isolation, so he shouldn't be affected negatively with the loss of CP3. He's on the radar as a DFS play. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:39 pm
  • Justin Anderson scores 14 points in start
    Justin Anderson made his first postseason start against the Thunder on Monday, scoring 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He was awesome and will certainly leave the Mavs front office with something to think about heading into next season. Anderson was one of the most impressive players at 2015 Summer League and he'll likely have a chance to shine as the top offensive option in July. If Chandler Parsons (knee) winds up on another team, Anderson might be a fantasy sleeper next year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:09 pm
  • Josh Richardson struggles in 31 minutes
    Josh Richardson made 1-of-7 from the field for three points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: He's finally in a slump. In his last five games, Richardson made just 26.4 percent from the field for 5.6 points per game. He is still getting minutes close to 30 as a second-string combo guard. It's still tough to trust Richardson in DFS due to low dimes and a low usage rate. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:46 pm
  • Update: Anderson starting, Barea off bench
    Justin Anderson will start with J.J. Barea coming off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Well, the Mavs are confusing everyone today. Anderson will join Ray Felton, Wes Matthews, Dirk Nowitzki and Zaza Pachulia. Anderson has been very good and is worth a look as a tourney punt in DFS. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:05 pm
  • Kent Bazemore probable again for Tuesday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) is probable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.

    Advice: He'll be good to go and has been probable for the entire series. Bazemore has been active during the playoffs and should continue to flirt with his postseason averages of 13.3 points, 8.3 boards, 2.3 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.3 treys. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:13 pm
  • John Jenkins feels he showed something w/ PHX
    John Jenkins believes he showed he's an NBA player during his stint with the Suns.

    Advice: "I was able to show that I’m healthy," he said. "I’ve had people questioning that. I definitely showed that I can withstand a NBA season, shoot the ball well, expand other parts of my game and play at the highest level still. The way the direction is going and the youth movement here, I think I fit right in. I’m still a young guy with room to grow." Phoenix holds a team option on Jenkins for each of the next two seasons. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:02 am
  • Marcus Morris shoots 9-of-12 with little else
    Marcus Morris drained 9-of-12 shots to finish Sunday's Game 4 defeat with 24 points, three 3-pointers and one rebound in 31 minutes.

    Advice: No NBA team has come back from a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series, and the Pistons couldn't even avoid the sweep despite Morris' solid game. He played only 31 minutes due to foul trouble but that hardly excuses his inability to post a single assist, steals or block in Detroit's final game of the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:33 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko double-doubles in Game 4 win
    Celtics coach Brad Stevens heaped praise on Jonas Jerebko prior to Game 4, which he finished with 16 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: "[Jerebko] plays really, really, hard," Stevens said. "He's got versatility with regard to defensively ... And then his scoring is just a plus. You know, if he scores, he scores; if not, he's still spacing for us." Jerebko more than justified his coach's faith tonight, shooting 6-of-9 with multiple clutch baskets. His move to the starting lineup has benefited Boston in reality, and he's worth considering as a DFS punt-play. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:13 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (leg) won't play Sunday
    Reggie Bullock (leg) will not play vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

    Advice: Bullock has an inflamed nerve in his left leg and could miss more time. His absence doesn't have a big impact on the Pistons' rotation, though it could shift extra minutes to Stanley Johnson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:56 pm
  • Donatas Motiejunas scores eight in loss
    Donatas Motiejunas scored eight points (3-of-6 FGs) with four boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He was coming off a massive double-double with 14 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes in Game 3, but he wasn't anywhere near as productive in Game 4. The Rockets haven't gotten any consistent production out of the power forward spot all year, so it's not like this performance was a surprise. D-Mo will continue to be a shaky option in fantasy until the Rockets are inevitably eliminated from the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:32 pm
  • Celtics will start Jerebko and Turner again
    The Celtics will start Evan Turner and Jonas Jerebko again in Game 4 vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: This means that Marcus Smart and Jared Sullinger will come off the bench again. Jerebko scored 11 points with 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes in Game 3 and Turner also played well with 17 points, seven assists and five steals, so it's a no-brainer for the Celtics. Both Jerebko and Turner are solid plays tonight. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:25 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (leg) is doubtful for Sunday
    Reggie Bullock (leg) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He had an MRI on Saturday and coach Stan Van Gundy revealed that Bullock is dealing with a nerve issue in his left leg. It sounds like he could miss additional time as well, so there could be a few more minutes heading Stanley Johnson's way. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:34 am
  • Justin Anderson steps up with Mavs hurting
    Justin Anderson played 19 minutes with 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: With Deron Williams (hernia) going down, Anderson has to play more. The Mavs need his activity on the defensive end and his three offensive boards during this game were helpful. Among the 12 Mavs with at least 15 minutes during this series, Anderson ranks first in net rating. He's on the board as a punt in DFS. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Justin Anderson takes pain medication
    Justin Anderson (shoulder) took pain medication and will wear an X-shaped patch during Saturday's game.

    Advice: He'll be ready to go and figures to play minutes in the 8-12 range tonight with the Mavs having most of their guys available. Anderson is not a great DFS play. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:19 pm
  • Kent Bazemore listed as probable again
    Kent Bazemore (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He's fine and the Hawks have put him on the injury report in all three games. Bazemore has been very active, so expect him to have another solid effort on the stat sheet in Boston. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:09 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (leg) getting an MRI
    Reggie Bullock (leg) is scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday.

    Advice: He has a nerve issue in his left leg and missed Game 3. That allowed Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to get some extra run. Bullock seems like he might be out for Game 4. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:28 pm
  • Justin Anderson says he will play in Game 4
    Justin Anderson (shoulder) said that he will play in Game 4 on Saturday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Anderson was listed as questionable on the injury report with a shoulder sprain but told reporters at shootaround that he's good to go. The rookie is averaging 7.7 points, 3.0 boards, 1.3 assists and 0.7 blocks in 17.3 minutes per game in this series, so most fantasy owners will be able to do better. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:51 am
  • Justin Anderson (shoulder) questionable
    Justin Anderson (shoulder) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He is dealing with a shoulder sprain and it's unknown if he had any further evaluation. Anderson has been in the rotation due to the Mavs being so shorthanded on the wing, but they won't miss him too much if he can't go. Devin Harris and Raymond Felton would play more sans Anderson. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:06 am
  • Evan Turner scores 17 points in win
    Evan Turner got the start on Friday against the Hawks, scoring 17 points with two rebounds, seven assists, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He played some more minutes at the two with the Celtics going bigger thanks to the output from Jonas Jerebko. Turner's play-making has been a big part of the offense and his defense has vastly improved this season as well. Expect a sizable role the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:40 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko double-doubles in 37 minutes
    Jonas Jerebko double-doubled in 37 minutes against the Hawks on Friday with 11 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played the game of his life and coach Brad Stevens stuck with him. Interestingly, Jerebko was first among the Celtics in net rating in the first two games of this series and he had a team-high plus-14 in plus-minus for this win. There's no doubt Jerebko has earned more run as the Celtics take an offense-first approach to their up-tempo style. He'll be in play as a DFS punt. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Kent Bazemore score 20 in active 34 minutes
    Kent Bazemore was active in his 34 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, making 8-of-19 from the field for 20 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was forcing a lot of shots and perhaps the Hawks should have got the ball inside to Al Horford, who finished with eight points, 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals and four blocks. Bazemore has been terrific for most of the season with a few cold streaks, and now coach Mike Budenholzer is leaning on him a lot. He'll be a solid DFS play on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:01 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 17 points vs. Boston
    Kyle Korver fouled out in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was in foul trouble for basically the entire game. Korver was on fire in the fourth quarter to help bring the Hawks back after trailing by 20 in the first half. This was also his second good game in a row with 17 points in Game 2. Fantasy owners can start to have some confidence in using him again. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:55 pm
  • Stanley Johnson scored nine points
    Stanley Johnson scored nine points with one rebound in 14 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: He got off to a quick start in the first half with all nine points in his eight first-half minutes. Johnson has been in the news for his off-court comments saying he was in LeBron James' head. The rookie was pretty solid yet again tonight and has shown a lot of promise. He's still only a punt in DFS during this series. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (leg) will not play on Friday
    Reggie Bullock (leg) will not play on Friday against the Cavs.

    Advice: He has a nerve issue with his left leg. He actually played 11.0 minutes per game in the past two, so there could be some minutes going to guys like Stanley Johnson. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:07 pm
  • Evan Turner getting the start
    Evan Turner will get the start at shooting guard on Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: He's logged the vast majority of his minutes at small forward in this series with even the occasional minutes at power forward. The starting lineup of Turner, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson have not played together at all in this series and have played only 33 possessions during the regular season. This is good news for Turner to get a new avenue for minutes at a new position. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:29 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko, Evan Turner will start Friday
    Jonas Jerebko and Evan Turner will start over Jared Sullinger and Marcus Smart against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: The Celtics really need some spacing on their offensive side, so that's why Jerebko is out there. Plus, Sullinger was not good at all in Game 2. Jerebko should get minutes in the upper teens to the low 20s tonight unless he is very hot or cold. He's on the table as a punt in DFS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:21 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko could start on Friday?
    Jonas Jerebko could enter the starting lineup on Friday for Game 3 vs. the Hawks according to ESPN.

    Advice: "I’m always ready. I don’t care if that’s starting or coming off the bench first or coming off the eighth man, ninth man -- no matter what it is," said Jerebko. "I’m ready for whatever." Head coach Brad Stevens already hinted that a lineup switch could be coming, but hinted that he may need Jerebko's shooting in the second unit if Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) can't play. Even if Jerebko gets the nod with the first unit, he will be hard to trust in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:16 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas double-doubles in win
    Donatas Motiejunas double-doubled vs. the Warriors in Game 3 on Thursday, scoring 14 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Where did that come from? D-Mo averaged 7.5 points and 2.5 boards in the first two games of the series in 13.5 minutes, but the Rockets played with a more traditional lineup tonight and it seemed to work. There should be more small ball in Game 4 on Sunday with Stephen Curry (ankle) expected to be back for the Warriors, so fantasy owners should be cautious regarding D-Mo's big night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:41 pm
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) probable for Game 3
    Kent Bazemore (right knee stiffness) is probable to play in Game 3 on Friday.

    Advice: Bazemore has not looked limited by the knee injury at all during his first two games, so it would be surprising to see him hit the sidelines on Friday night. Plan on having him available. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:23 pm
  • Stevens says he's contemplating lineup change
    Brad Stevens said that he's contemplating making a change to his starting lineup for Game 3 on Friday, but he's not yet made a final decision.

    Advice: Evan Turner has supplanted Jared Sullinger in the starting five to begin the second half of both Game 1 and Game 2, so if Stevens does end up going through with the change, Turner for Sullinger will be the likely switch. Sullinger has struggled in a big way during Boston's first-round series, and a move to the bench won't do his fantasy value any favors. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:49 am
  • Marcus Morris OK after getting bloody nose
    Marcus Morris posted 11 points, seven rebounds and two assists on Wednesday, making 6-of-6 free throws, but he was just 2-of-10 from the field in the Pistons' road loss.

    Advice: Detroit knocked down a season-high 15 shots from downtown in Game 1, but the Cavs' defense tightened up tonight as Detroit made only four triples. Morris briefly exited tonight's game with a bloody nose but he's ready to go for Game 3. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:59 pm
  • Marcus Morris heads to locker room Wednesday
    Marcus Morris briefly headed into the Pistons' locker room during Game 2, but he has since returned.

    Advice: Morris had a bloody nose but he only missed a few minutes and will be fine for Game 3. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 pm
  • Josh Richardson snaps slump, scores 15 points
    Josh Richardson finished Game 2 with 15 points in 31 minutes off Miami's bench, making 5-of-9 shots with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: The Heat have now won six consecutive playoff games vs. the Hornets. They made their final 10 field goals of the second quarter tonight, scoring a franchise playoff-record 43 points in the frame, and Richardson's contributions bode well going forward -- the rookie came in shooting a mere 24.2 percent in his previous six games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:53 pm
  • Van Gundy praises Stanley Johnson's defense
    Stan Van Gundy praised Stanley Johnson's effort on the defensive end during a recent interview.
