  • Marcus Morris scores 22 points in finale
    Marcus Morris scored 22 points against the Kings during Wednesday's 104-99 win with six boards, two steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He's played well against the Kings this season with a 13.0 points per game average in his previous three. Morris didn't quite have the year his brother Markieff had, but he made some nice strides as an offensive weapon. He'll be on the radar in deeper leagues depending on how the Suns handle their business in the offseason. Rotoworld.com
  • Archie Goodwin busts out with 29 points
    Archie Goodwin busted out for a career-high 29 points vs. the Kings on Wednesday, adding four boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 11-of-13 from the field in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He made a huge splash in Las Vegas Summer League, but he was extremely quiet until tonight. If not for Gerald Green making a strong case for Most Improved Player, we might have seen more of Goodwin. He's a plus defender and showed tonight that he can really get to the rim. His jumper needs work and he's unlikely to be a target in fantasy drafts next season. Rotoworld.com
  • DeAndre Jordan starts, then sits for Clips
    DeAndre Jordan started on Wednesday, but played just one minute before leaving with no stats.

    Advice: He's not hurt. He just wanted to say he started all 82 games this season, as well as keep his streak of 241 straight games played alive. He's good to go for the playoffs, along with Blake Griffin and the rest of the Clippers. They'll face the Warriors in Round 1. Rotoworld.com
  • Rudy Gay played just 16 minutes on Wednesday
    Rudy Gay played 16 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring six points with six boards, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: It was a bit of a surprise to even see him in the lineup after missing Sunday's game due to a back injury. Gay had a tremendous turnaround with the Kings after putting up some horrible efficiency with the Raptors earlier this year. The Kings got him more buckets in transition and he was much better off screens, so he could keep it up in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Today, 9:51 pm
  • Blake Griffin serves suspension, ready to go
    Blake Griffin served his one-game suspension in Wednesday's finale and should be ready to go in Round 1 of the playoffs against the Warriors.

    Advice: Chris Paul took Wednesday off as well, along with J.J. Redick. All three players should be back in the starting lineup for Round 1 against the Warriors, although Redick is still not quite at 100 percent after a back injury. Glen Davis started for Griffin tonight, but had just seven points and seven rebounds in a somewhat disappointing performance. Rotoworld.com
  • David Lee, other Warriors ready to go
    David Lee, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Jermaine O'Neal and Draymond Green all got a rest on Wednesday, but all should be ready to go for the playoffs.

    Advice: Lee is the most banged up of this bunch with a sore hamstring, while Andrew Bogut isn't likely to play in the postseason with a fractured rib. Expect everyone but Bogut to be ready to face the Clippers in Round 1. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:34 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
    Today, 9:30 pm
  • Amir Johnson rolls ankle on Wednesday
    Amir Johnson looked to suffer an ankle injury against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: There has been no word from the team just yet, but he did play only 15 minutes after he seemed a bit hobbled. Johnson scored just two points with four boards, one assist and two turnovers in a loss. He'll need the two days off as the Raptors head into the playoffs. They'll face the Nets this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:20 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic should be ready for playoffs
    Mirza Teletovic has missed a couple games after his wife gave birth to twins, but we're guessing he's ready to go for the playoffs.

    Advice: He might have missed at least one of those games in order to rest, but his family should be situated by the time they face the Raptors in Round 1. Rotoworld.com
  • 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
  • Cole Aldrich looks great on Wednesday night
    Cole Aldrich filled the stat sheet against the Raptors during a 95-92 win with 13 points, 16 boards, one assist, two steals and five blocks in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He had a double-double on Tuesday and finished the season about as well as anyone would have thought. Tyson Chandler did not play tonight and it allowed Aldrich to get serious run as the primary option in the paint. Aldrich was a lottery pick with the Thunder and there's a decent chance this will be his best game of his career from a fantasy standpoint. Rotoworld.com
  • 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
    Today, 9:05 pm
  • 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
    Today, 9:01 pm
  • 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
  • Rudy Gay, Isaiah Thomas will play on Wed.
    Rudy Gay (back) and Isaiah Thomas (quad) will play on Wednesday night.

    Advice: This is a bit of a surprise and Gay's back must be feeling good. He missed Sunday's game and should be busy tonight with DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) out. Derrick Williams could still get some run at power forward tonight and is a possible fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:05 pm
  • 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
    Today, 4:17 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
    Today, 3:39 pm
  • Cole Aldrich will start on Wednesday
    Updating a previous item, Cole Aldrich will start against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had a double-double on Tuesday and will carry some momentum into tonight. He's a fantasy option with Tyson Chandler sitting out. Rotoworld.com
  • Cole Aldrich won't play on Monday
    Cole Aldrich will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Knicks won't have Tyson Chandler tonight and will likely give Jeremy Tyler some extra playing time. Aldrich looked good with a double-double on Tuesday, so his last game of the season was arguably one of his best. Rotoworld.com
  • 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
  • David Lee will be rested Wed. vs. Nuggets
    David Lee will sit out Wednesday's game to get some rest.

    Advice: Lee's hamstring responded well to his recent return, and he dropped 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting on Monday, so his absence is truly a precaution. Marreese Speights will assume the starting PF job in his absence. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:03 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • Mirza Teletovic out Wed. after birth of twins
    Mirza Teletovic will not play on Wednesday to be with his wife and newborn twins.

    Advice: While Teletovic and his wife celebrate, the Nets gear up for a game vs. the Cavaliers that could decide their playoff seeding. If the Nets lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, Washington will take over the No. 5 seed by virtue of a tie-breaker. Rotoworld.com
  • Griffin, Redick won't travel for Wednesday
    Blake Griffin and J.J. Redick will not travel to Portland for Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    Advice: Well, that solves that. We knew Redick wouldn't play and Griffin is facing a suspension for picking up his 16th technical, so the move isn't all that surprising. Glen Davis and Darren Collison look like the best bets for success in their absence in Wednesday's finale. This also raises questions about how many minutes guys like Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan will play, but at least they're going to travel. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 24, suspension looming
    Blake Griffin had 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block on 9-of-17 shooting, but also picked up his 16th technical foul on Tuesday, which will earn him a one-game suspension for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: He hit Timofey Mozgov in the face while following through on a block attempt, and while it wasn't intentional, it fits the definition of a technical foul. It could be rescinded and he could be allowed to play, but we're guessing Doc Rivers will take it easy on all the starters in a somewhat meaningless game. If the Thunder beat the Pistons, the Clippers are locked into the No. 3 seed in the West. Suspension or not, don't expect a lot from Blake on Wednesday. Look for the Thunder to try to beat the Pistons, as they play 2.5 hours prior to the Clippers tip off. And if it appears the Thunder will win when the Clippers tip off, the starters may all get a rest tomorrow. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Griffin picks up 16th tech, suspension likely
    Blake Griffin picked up his 16th technical foul on Tuesday night, drawing an automatic suspension for Wednesday's game, if it's not rescinded.

    Advice: Griffin has already had three technical fouls rescinded this season and the NBA may call this one a "three strikes and you're out" situation. Griffin wasn't all that likely to play many minutes on Wednesday anyway, and given that there was no malicious intent to hurt Timofey Mozgov tonight, the league has a tough call to make. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 8:26 pm
  • 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
  • Cole Aldrich goes for 13 & 13 off bench
    Cole Aldrich played 25 minutes off the bench and hit 4-of-6 shots for 13 points, 13 rebounds, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

    Advice: This was basically the biggest game of Aldrich's non-storied career and simply suggests that he should have played more this season for the Knicks. With Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony and possibly Tyson Chandler not likely to play on Wednesday, Aldrich should be in line for another nice night. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:17 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
  • 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
    Yesterday, 3:29 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
  • David Lee feels good after back-to-back set
    David Lee said that his hamstring felt better during Monday's game vs. the Wolves, during which he scored 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting.

    Advice: It was the second half of a back-to-back set, which makes his performance even more encouraging as the Warriors prepare to play without Andrew Bogut (broken rib). Head coach Mark Jackson said that he'll deploy a frontcourt of Lee and Draymond Green as needed, since Jermaine O'Neal can't play huge minutes, Festus Ezeli (knee) is still recovering, and Marreese Speights isn't much of a rim protector anyway. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:40 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
    Yesterday, 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
    Yesterday, 8:19 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
    Yesterday, 7:56 am
  • Teletovic, Livingston, Anderson all out
    Mirza Teletovic will miss Tuesday's game against the Knicks for personal reasons.

    Advice: Alan Anderson and Shaun Livingston are also out, while Paul Pierce, Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are all listed as game-time decisions. Carmelo Anthony is not expected to play for the Knicks, and this game is setting up to be a bit of a no-name circus. Marcus Thornton, Marquis Teague and Mason Plumlee could all have big games tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:48 am
  • Tim Duncan returned to action on Monday April 14. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:21 am
  • Lee posts 25 and nine; may sit out on Wed
    David Lee scored 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting with nine rebounds and two steals over 28 minutes on Monday against the Wolves.

    Advice: Lee reached for his hamstring at one point but it didn't seem to affect his play, but now that the Warriors have clinched their seeding Mark Jackson has already indicated that a lot of guys will rest. Lee will be at the top of that list, making him doubtful for Wednesday's game pending an update. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:50 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
  • Johnson scores 10 points with two threes
    Amir Johnson scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in Monday's win.

    Advice: Johnson logged 28 minutes and with the Raps likely tied with the Bulls for the No. 3 seed after tonight, his chances of playing on Wednesday are better than they might have been in a less competitive scenario. Patrick Patterson (three points, 1-of-7 FGs, five boards, two steals, 20 minutes) has taken a back seat with Johnson playing well. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:15 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Deron Williams returned to action on Sunday April 13. Rotoworld.com
  • David Lee (hamstring) quiet in start at PF
    David Lee (hamstring) posted four points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in a start at PF on Sunday, as the Warriors lost a heart-breaker on the road in Portland.

    Advice: Lee missed seven games due to his injury, which stemmed from nerve irritation, but he didn't aggravate anything by playing 25 minutes in his return on Friday. His playing time ramped up to 33 minutes on Sunday and the Warriors are likely to keep him active over the next two games, both to get him some rhythm and fight off the Mavericks for the sixth seed. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:08 pm
  • Cole Aldrich plays 18 minutes vs. Bulls
    Knicks rookie Cole Aldrich had six points, eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 18 minutes on Sunday, marking his second-most playing time of the season.

    Advice: Mike Woodson said that he'll give his young players more minutes down the stretch, with the playoffs already out of reach, and Aldrich may be one of the guys to benefit the most. Unfortunately, his value is too tentative to bother with him outside of deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
  • David Lee (hamstring) starts at PF on Sunday
    David Lee (hamstring) will start for the Warriors on Sunday, shifting Draymond Green back to a bench role.

    Advice: Lee's nerve irritation seems to have subsided and the Warriors will revert to their typical rotations as they make one last push to solidify their playoff seeding. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:53 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
  • Mirza Teletovic gets hot from deep vs. Magic
    Nets PF Mirza Teletovic made 7-of-12 field goals with four 3-pointers on Sunday, while grabbing six rebounds and blocking one shot in 29 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Teletovic is shooting nearly 39 percent from downtown on the season and he's picked up the pace in April (42.9 percent), which gives Brooklyn some much-welcomed firepower off the bench. His perimeter shooting makes him an intriguing fantasy player, and we'll keep an eye on him this summer with the Nets' roster likely to see plenty of changes. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:33 pm
  • Rudy Gay (back) out again on Sunday vs. MIN
    Rudy Gay's sore back will sideline him for Sunday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Gay returned to action on Saturday, scoring 16 points in 34 minutes, but he may have aggravated his injury in the process. Derrick Williams will fill in at SF in his absence, and it's unclear if Gay will attempt to return for Wednesday's season finale. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:23 pm
  • Amir Johnson plays better, logs 17 minutes
    Amir Johnson played 17 minutes vs. the Pistons on Sunday with eight points, two boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: He got into some foul trouble against his former team and he's yet to get back in the swing on things since returning from his ankle injury. He only played 17 minutes on Friday in his return and perhaps the Raptors want him to take it easy before they make a playoff run. Fantasy owners might be better off grabbing a player on a team not preparing for the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:30 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
  • 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

  • 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

  • Rudy Gay (back) shoots 6-of-18 vs. Clippers
    Rudy Gay (back) started Saturday's game, as expected, and finished with 16 points on 6-of-18 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: He wasn't exactly sharp offensively but he still logged 34 minutes and should be ready to go on Sunday as long as his back doesn't seize up on him. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:55 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

  • Lee double-doubles off the bench in return
    David Lee (hamstring) returned to action on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting with 10 rebounds and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Lakers were a good spot to get Lee back in action and though it's unlikely he stays in a bench role, it sure would make a lot of sense going forward to balance the first and second units. Draymond Green scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with two threes, seven boards, four steals and one block in 32 minutes, and his defense helps round out a formidable starting five on that end. Keep Green going unless the Warriors indicate Lee is going to play big minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • 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
  • Amir Johnson plays just 17 minutes
    Amir Johnson (ankle) played 17 minutes and did not score in his return to the lineup on Friday vs. the Knicks, adding three boards, two assists and one block.

    Advice: He missed his last three games due to his ankle soreness and didn't look too great on the offense end. Johnson was still very active and this might just be a rust issue. He should be ready for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons and should have a better showing on the stat sheet. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:45 pm
  • David Lee will try to play on Friday night
    David Lee (hamstring) will give it a go against the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: He is going to come off the bench and said he is not 100 percent. Perhaps the Warriors getting embarrassed on the glass on Thursday was a factor for Lee to play tonight, which will decrease the opportunity for Draymond Green. Fantasy owners can pick Lee back up, but he's not a must-start play. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:27 pm
  • 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
  • Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will sit vs. PHX
    Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will not play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: Duncan played 39 minutes on Thursday and there was really no way coach Gregg Popovich would have played him that much and put him back out there tonight. He'll likely get at least one more game of rest in the final week, so he's not necessarily a must-own player. Expect Boris Diaw and Tiago Splitter to pick up the slack. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:44 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) out, Gutierrez starts
    Deron Williams (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks due to right patella tendinitis.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd said this is just about rest for Deron and his knee injury doesn't appear serious. Kidd said he's going to rest his players down the stretch and this will be Williams' first DNP since Jan. 16. He should be considered questionable on Sunday. Jorge Gutierrez starts tonight and may get some serious run with Shaun Livingston (foot) also out. Rotoworld.com
  • Amir Johnson will play vs. the Knicks on Fri.
    Amir Johnson (ankle) will play against the Knicks on Friday.

    Advice: He went through a light practice on Thursday and after that workout the team said Amir should be ready for Friday. Coach Dwane Casey said getting Johnson to 100 percent health is a priority, so he's likely ready to resume his regular role tonight. He should be back in most fantasy lineups tonight in a solid matchup. Pat Patterson moves back to the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:28 pm
  • Rudy Gay (back) will play on Saturday night
    Rudy Gay (back) practiced on Friday and will play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He missed his last two games due to a back injury, so Saturday will be his first game since Sunday. Gay's shooting numbers haven't fizzled out all season with his new team and he should handle the ball a ton with Isaiah Thomas (quad) ruled out. Travis Outlaw can be cut in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:15 pm
  • David Lee questionable at best for Friday
    CSN Bay Area still considers David Lee (back, hamstring) "out indefinitely."

    Advice: There is no new update from the team Friday as the Warriors are on a back-to-back. All we know is that Lee did go through individual drills before Thursday's game and he's officially "day-to-day." It would be a surprise if he suits up against the Lakers Friday night, but we probably won't know for sure until an hour before the 10:30pm ET tip. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Tim Duncan not expected to play Friday
    Tim Duncan (rest, knee) is not expected to play in Friday's game against the Suns.

    Advice: We're not worried about the knee tweak as Duncan played through it Thursday night. But given that he ended up logging a season-high 39 minutes, he's a near lock to sit out the second half of this back-to-back. Boris Diaw will likely draw the start at power forward. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:18 am
  • Tim Duncan is fine after knee injury
    Tim Duncan suffered a knee injury in the first quarter and was able to return, finishing with 20 points, 15 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 39 minutes.

    Advice: His 39 minutes were his second-highest of the season, so the smart money is on coach Greg Popovich sitting Duncan down on Friday night. The team may also sit him out in the finale on Wednesday, which means he could be looking at just two games the rest of the way. His fantasy owners should start thinking about an alternate plan.
