  • LeBron James hits four triples in Game 1 win
    LeBron James made four 3-pointers during Game 1's 99-88 win over the Bobcats on Sunday, scoring a total of 27 points with nine boards, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: The Heat had 11 3-pointers today and that was a big part of the win. Their offense clearly wasn't in rhythm with only 14 assists on their 35 field goals and only had 24 points in the paint. LeBron had a couple huge 3-pointers in the third quarter, which helped swing the momentum to help the Heat dominate the early fourth quarter. He owned the Bobcats all season with 37.8 points per game in four games, so he's likely going to put up some massive numbers in this series. Rotoworld.com

  • Tayshaun Prince practices on Sunday
    Tayshaun Prince (illness) practiced on Sunday and is expected to start against the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: He missed the second half of Saturday's game due to the illness, but the Grizzlies probably aren't going to play him much in order to give Tony Allen more run. Prince may still be getting over an ankle injury from earlier this month and he's not likely to be much of a factor in this series. Rotoworld.com

  • Danny Green puts up a goose egg Sunday
    Danny Green did not score against the Mavericks on Sunday, adding five boards, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He only attempted two shots today and the Spurs didn't get him involved much. Green had a good season against the Mavericks on the year, making 3.0 triples per game on a pristine 78.6 effective field goal percentage in four games. He'll likely have his inconsistencies throughout the playoffs, but he's a good bet for a big game in this series. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:48 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard double-doubles in win
    Kawhi Leonard double-doubled against the Mavericks on Sunday with 11 points, 10 boards and one turnover in 31 minutes.

    Advice: While he didn't do much on the stat sheet, Leonard's presence was clearly evident. He didn't have a steal, block or a 3-pointer today, which is the first time he's failed to do so since Jan. 4. His length really helped the Spurs late in this game and helped put the clamps on the Dallas' offense late, so the Mavs will have to do a better job of keeping him from getting involved on plays on the weak side. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley (ankle) will be inactive Sun.
    Michael Beasley (ankle) will be inactive for Sunday's opening game vs. the Bobcats.

    Advice: Miami will not need him to get past the Bobcats, so this isn't too much of a blow to the Heat. The injury doesn't seem to be very major, so Beasley could possibly be back for Game 2, but he could very well pick up a DNP-CD in that one as well. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:06 am
  • Victor Claver will be inactive for Game 1
    Terry Stotts said that he'll likely place Victor Claver and Allen Crabbe on the inactive list for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Even if these guys were in uniform, it's highly unlikely either would step on the court. These are simply emergency depth guys and they're not the type of players that have an impact on games. Rotoworld.com

  • Durant, Westbrook too much for Grizz in Gm 1
    Kevin Durant hit 13-of-25 shots and three 3-pointers for 33 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Saturday's easy Game 1 win over the Grizzlies.

    Advice: The final score was 100-86 in favor of the Thunder, as they became the only home team to win on the opening day of the playoffs. Russell Westbrook added 23 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, but was 0-for-5 from downtown. The Grizzlies made a nice run in the third quarter, but this one was really never in doubt. It's hard to see the Thunder losing this series after tonight's strong statement. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Tayshaun Prince out 2nd half with illness
    Tayshaun Prince will miss the second half of Saturday's Game 1 against the Thunder due to an illness.

    Advice: He played just four minutes and failed to score in the first half, and Tony Allen started the second half in his place. This could end up being a permanent move, as Prince was highly ineffective this season. It also may not matter, as the Thunder are trouncing the Grizzlies and are playing on a different level. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • Andrei Kirilenko healthy, out of rotation
    Andrei Kirilenko didn't play for the Nets in Saturday's Game 1 win, but isn't injured.

    Advice: He's just out of the rotation, according to coach Jason Kidd. If you grabbed AK-47 in a playoff league and have waiver moves available, dropping him for an Atlanta Hawk makes sense. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:02 pm
  • Paul George injures quad in ugly Game 1 loss
    Paul George hit just 6-of-18 shots and left Saturday's Game 1 loss briefly with a left quad/knee injury, finishing with 24 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, four steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Despite the poor shooting, that's a pretty stellar fantasy line from George, but the Pacers were down by about 20 for most of the second half, and lost 101-93. There's no word on the severity of his knee injury, but given that he quickly returned after a trip to the locker room, we're guessing it's no big deal. The No. 1 seeded Pacers turned over homecourt advantage to the Hawks tonight, and don't match up well with Atlanta. If the Hawks hang on to win the series, they'll become just the third No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 in a seven-game series, joining the 2007 Warriors (over the Mavericks), and the 2011 Grizzlies (over the Spurs). Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:51 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll double-doubles in win
    DeMarre Carroll had 12 points, 10 rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Saturday's Game 1 win at Indiana.

    Advice: The final score was 101-93, but the game wasn't nearly that close, as the Hawks were up by about 20 points for most of the second half. Carroll is going to be a very tough match up for Paul George (6-of-18, 24 points), and is a key for the Hawks against the Pacers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:47 pm
  • Paul George leaves, returns from knee injury
    Paul George went from having his left knee rubbed down on the bench to the locker room during the third quarter of Game 1, but returned a short time later.

    Advice: It's either his knee or his quad, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We'll know more after the game, but if he does end up coming up lame, Evan Turner is going to become a big factor for the Pacers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:45 pm
  • Andre Iguodala fouls out vs. Clippers on Sat.
    Andre Iguodala fouled out of Saturday's game with eight points and three assists in only 19 minutes of action.

    Advice: Warriors coach Mark Jackson kept Iguodala in the game with three fouls in the first half and he quickly picked up his fourth, followed by a fifth early in the third quarter. The Clippers had their own foul problems with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both sitting out much of the second half, and the Warriors were able to escape with a thrilling 109-105 victory despite Iguodala's absence down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:53 pm
  • Draymond Green looks fine after leg injury
    Draymond Green bruised his right leg during the first half on Saturday, but he quickly returned to post seven points, seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in a road victory.

    Advice: Green had a tremendous chase-down block on Darren Collison in the third quarter, which should end any speculation about the severity of his injury. His ability to play multiple positions gives coach Mark Jackson an invaluable weapon off the bench, and his 22 minutes of playing time may increase throughout the series since small lineups are inevitable with Andrew Bogut (ribs) on the sidelines. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:53 pm
  • Danny Granger (hamstring) returns on Saturday
    Danny Granger (hamstring) returned to action on Saturday, scoring three points in 12 minutes during a Game 1 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Granger shot 1-of-6 from the field in 12 minutes. The Clippers' bench as a whole struggled with the exception of Glen Davis, who fired up the crowd while notching six points, six boards, three assists and three steals in 22 very active minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Andrei Kirilenko earns DNP-CD in Game 1
    Andrei Kirilenko never left the Nets' bench during Saturday's Game 1 victory.

    Advice: Jason Kidd used a true 10-man rotation with Marcus Thornton, Alan Anderson, Mirza Teletovic, Mason Plumlee and Andray Blatche as his second unit. That makes Kirilenko's absence even more conspicuous, and he'd averaged 26 minutes over the final five games of the regular season with Brooklyn resting regular starters for the playoffs. The Nets won on the road on Saturday so there's a good chance AK will be rooted to the bench again on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:04 pm
  • Draymond Green (knee) back after brief exit
    Draymond Green headed into the Warriors locker room with an apparent right knee injury before halftime on Saturday, but he has since returned.

    Advice: Green was crossed over by Matt Barnes and fell awkwardly, and after a few moments he left to be evaluated by the training staff. His return is great news for Golden State, as the absence of Andrew Bogut (ribs) has already left them more reliant upon guys like Green, Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:38 pm
  • Joe Johnson, Deron Williams each score 24 pts
    Joe Johnson and Deron Williams each scored 24 points in Saturday's road win vs. the Raptors, with Johnson connecting on 8-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: D-Will carried the Nets in the first half and they wisely fed Johnson while he was hot in the third quarter, but it was their locked-in team defense that earned them a tough victory. They'll try to take a stranglehold on the series with another win in Toronto on Tuesday before heading to Brooklyn for Games 3 and 4. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:51 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan shoots poorly in Game 1 loss
    DeMar DeRozan didn't score a field goal in the first half of Saturday's loss, and he finished with 14 points on 3-of-13 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: The Raptors' entire offense struggled, shooting 39.4 percent with 17 turnovers, and DeRozan was part of the problem by continually forcing up contested shots. As his team's lone All-Star and leading scorer, DeRozan needs to score closer to his season average 22.7 points per game for Toronto's offense to really succeed. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:50 pm
  • Paul Pierce's surge helps Nets steal Game 1
    Paul Pierce got hot in the fourth quarter on Saturday, finishing with 15 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in a 94-87 win in Toronto.

    Advice: Pierce's late surge helped keep the Raptors at bay and he already looks like a matchup nightmare, as Toronto's PFs aren't nimble enough to chase him off the 3-point line without giving up easy driving and passing lanes. Fellow 'dinosaur' Kevin Garnett had five points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block in 20 minutes, and his lone field goal was a dagger in the final minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Terrence Ross struggles in 16 minutes vs. BKN
    Raptors SG Terrence Ross scored just three points in 16 minutes of action vs. the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: Ross made 1-of-4 shots with all of his attempts coming from beyond the arc, and he quickly gave way to veteran guard Greivis Vasquez (18 points, three 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists). Ross shot 42.3 percent from the field this season and he was held to single-digits in the final three games of the regular season, so his dud on Saturday isn't a big surprise. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:42 pm
  • Danny Granger (hamstring) will play in Game 1
    Danny Granger (strained hamstring) will play in Game 1 vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: "He looked good," said Doc Rivers. "For a guy who hasn't played, he looked good." Granger isn't likely to play many minutes, especially since the Clippers are at full strength for the first time since mid-November, but his return gives L.A. one more weapon to counter the Warriors' prodigious perimeter game. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:56 am
  • Michael Beasley says ankle is fine
    Michael Beasley (ankle) said he is fine.

    Advice: Beasley rolled his ankle during Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Sixers. He'll be available for Game 1 against the Bobcats Sunday, but probably will end up as a DNP-CD. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:52 am
  • Kings plan to keep Rudy Gay no matter what
    The Kings will try to retain Rudy Gay even if he exercises his opt-out clause.

    Advice: Gay can become an unrestricted free agent by opting out of a contract that will pay him $19.3 million next year. We'd be a little surprised if he passed up that kind of cash, but it's possible considering how much the Kings coaches and front office reportedly like him. Gay may see the opt-out as a chance to get a more guaranteed money in a long-term deal. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:36 am
  • Antetokounmpo plans to get stronger
    Giannis Antetokounmpo said he's going to focus on getting stronger this summer.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo was playing in Greece's second division before making the leap to the NBA this season. Considering that and his 6'9/210 frame, he handled himself very well. At age 19, his per-36 minute stats were 10.0 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.8 3-pointers. It's the kind of line we look for when trying to project future fantasy assets. The Greek Freak's progress this offseason will determine how much playing time he gets next season. Rotoworld.com
  • Thadd Young won't rule out asking for trade
    Thaddeus Young said it's "a possibility" that he'll ask management to trade him this summer.

    Advice: Young has repeatedly said all he wants to do is win, and the Sixers are at least two years away from doing that. The 25-year-old is under contract for $9.1 million next season and then has a player option for $9.7 million in 2015-16. Given those reasonable cap hits and Young's unique ability to score without plays called for him, he'd attract plenty of attention on the trade market. Thadd averaged career-highs in points (17.9), assists (2.3), steals (2.1) and 3-pointers (1.1) this season. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:54 am
  • Bulls, Lakers, Rockets, Clips to pursue Melo?
    The Bulls, Rockets, Lakers and Clippers are among the teams expected to pursue unrestricted free agent Carmelo Anthony.

    Advice: The Knicks can offer Anthony a five-year, $129 contract. The max he can get from other teams is four years and $95 million. But the Knicks have almost no room to reshape their roster, so re-signing there would not give Anthony his best shot at his stated goal of winning. If he's serious about competing for a title, Melo will take a massive pay cut and sign with Chicago, which could field a starting five of Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Anthony, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:41 am
  • Jazz GM expects to retain RFA Hayward
    GM Dennis Lindsey said he hopes restricted free agent Gordon Hayward is a "career Jazz member."

    Advice: At just 24 years old, Hayward was one of just four players to average 15 points, five rebounds and five assists. The others were LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Michael Carter-Williams. Hayward's 41.3 percent shooting leaves a lot to be desired, but the Jazz would be silly not to match any offer within reason. They can afford him and a max free agent if it comes to that. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:17 am
  • Danilo Gallinari dunking in practice
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) has been dunking in practice and says he'll be ready for training camp to start the 2014-15 season.

    Advice: He was in uniform last weekend, but he's still nowhere near close to playing. Gallinari missed the entire season due to ACL reconstruction and he'll have a tough rehab ahead of him this summer. He'll be on the radar in fantasy leagues as long as he doesn't have a setback. Rotoworld.com

    Injured
  • 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
    Thursday, 2:58 pm
  • Danny Granger practices on Thursday
    Danny Granger (hamstring) will practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Saturday.

    Advice: He's been out since Mar. 27 with his hamstring strain and he's likely to be limited in his return. Granger's numbers are a little better with the Clippers compared to what he was putting up with the Pacers earlier this season, but he's not going be asked to do much as the Clippers make a playoff run. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:16 pm
  • 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

    Thursday, 12:28 am
  • 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
    Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan returns in time for playoffs
    DeMar DeRozan returned from a night of rest and played 22 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with nine points and five rebounds.

    Advice: He's good to go for the Raps' Round 1 meeting with the Nets, and he's surely looking forward to it. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan plays just 22 minutes
    DeMar DeRozan played 22 minutes in his return to the lineup during a 95-92 loss to the Knicks on Wednesday, scoring nine points with five boards, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: He rested on Monday and coach Dwane Casey took it easy on his All-Star tonight -- deservedly so. Only Kevin Durant and Monta Ellis logged more minutes this season than DeRozan while DD also ranked third in free throw makes. He had a breakout season and has really become a nice, well-rounded scorer. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:26 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
    Wednesday, 9:18 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
    Wednesday, 8:56 pm
  • Durant scores 42, OKC clinches No. 2 seed
    Kevin Durant hit 14-of-30 shots and a 3-pointer for 42 points, four rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer as the Thunder pulled out a late win over the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder trailed for much of the fourth quarter but Durant had a big dunk inside of 20 seconds to give OKC the lead. Serge Ibaka had 10 points, 15 rebounds and six blocks, while Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson also played well in the tough win. The Thunder locked up the No. 2 seed and will play the winner of the Dallas-Memphis overtime game in Round 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:43 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 12 in Spurs loss
    Kawhi Leonard had 14 points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Lakers.

    Advice: This game was meaningless and the Spurs simply wanted to get some minutes for Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, who are working their way into playoff shape. Austin Daye scored 13, Tiago Splitter had 12 points and eight rebounds, and Tony Parker had 12 points and four assists in 16 minutes. Cory Joseph also scored 12 and Manu Ginobili had 10 points off the bench. The Spurs get the loser of Dallas-Memphis, which is going down to the wire tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:21 pm
  • Michael Beasley (ankle) out for game
    Michael Beasley sprained his right ankle and will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: It's too bad because he was getting some run tonight, finishing with eight points, one board, two blocks and one turnover. Beasley's minutes figure to drop back down in the playoffs, but the team got a heck of a lot more than they bargained for from him this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:59 pm
  • 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
    Wednesday, 6:05 pm
  • Anthony Bennett is available to play
    Anthony Bennett (knee) is available to play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: His rookie season has been a disaster, but at least he'll get one more chance to show what he can do. His fitness will likely be a problem for much of his career and the deck is stacked against him to have a breakout year. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:34 pm
  • Draymond Green likely out vs. Nuggets
    Draymond Green is expected to sit out Wednesday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: Green is coming off a massive game on Monday and with nothing at stake on Wednesday the Warriors will give him some rest. His health and stamina will be crucial for their playoff hopes, since Andrew Bogut's absence with a broken rib means we'll see plenty of small frontcourts with Green alongside David Lee. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:07 am
  • Andre Iguodala (rest) won't play Wednesday
    Andre Iguodala (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: Iguodala recently dealt with a knee injury and his minutes have been monitored in recent weeks, so he was a top candidate for a precautionary day of rest. He'll be ready to go for the postseason. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:00 am
  • Joe Johnson (calf) reportedly out Wednesday
    Joe Johnson's sore calf will reportedly sideline him on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played through the injury in Tuesday's loss and it doesn't sound very serious, but the Nets will err on the side of caution with the playoffs right around the corner. It sounds as though the Nets will have Alan Anderson (abdomen) back in action to fill the gaps at SG, along with Marcus Thornton and Marquis Teague. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:38 am
  • LeBron James, Chris Bosh out Wednesday
    LeBron James and Chris Bosh will both be rested for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: There's no word yet on Dwyane Wade's availability, but Greg Oden (illness, back) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Miami's final game of the regular season. The Heat will face either the Bobcats or the Wizards in the first round of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:53 am
  • Anthony Bennett (knee) could return Wed.
    Anthony Bennett (strained left patellar tendon) went through Tuesday's contact practice and may be available to play on Wednesday.

    Advice: It would be a token victory for the Cavs if Bennett could suit up, but nothing can dilute the misery of his rookie season. The No. 1 overall pick has appeared in 51 games, averaging 4.1 points on 35.2 percent shooting, with exactly as many turnovers (46) as combined assists (17), steals (21) and blocks (eight). There is little doubt that he'll play for the Cavs' Summer League team. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:49 am
  • 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
    Wednesday, 6:41 am
  • Joe Johnson scores 12 despite sore calf
    Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.

    Advice: The Nets could fall to the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Wizards win on Wednesday, so we'll have to see if Jason Kidd goes after seeding or rest for his guys tomorrow. Our guess is the old guys will get a rest and the Nets will have the No. 6 seed, but it's just a guess. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:29 pm
  • Paul Pierce scores 13 in loss to Knicks
    Paul Pierce played through his shoulder injury and had 13 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Nets needed to win this game and may be ready to give up on Wednesday's finale. Jason Kidd said after the game he doesn't care if he's the No. 5 or 6 seed, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Pierce get the night off. He was a game-time decision tonight, but he went for it. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Danny Granger could practice Wednesday
    Danny Granger, who has been out with a hamstring injury, could practice for the Clippers on Thursday or Friday.

    Advice: Doc Rivers is hoping to have him back for the playoffs and all indications are that he will be ready to play. He won't be a huge part of what the Clippers do, but could help them win some playoff games if he can get hot off the bench occasionally. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:06 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
  • Joe Johnson (calf) will play vs. Knicks
    Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.

    Advice: Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:32 pm
  • Paul George, West, Stephenson out Wednesday
    Paul George, David West, Lance Stephenson and C.J. Watson will all rest during Wednesday's season finale vs. the Magic.

    Advice: With the first seed in the East locked up, the Pacers are just trying to give their key players some rest while hoping to reclaim the elusive chemistry that abandoned them after the All-Star break. After shooting a mere 37.2 percent from the field in March, George is still stuck at 40.2 percent in April. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Joe Johnson a game-time decison
    Joe Johnson (calf) is a game-time decision for Tuesday.

    Advice: He could be out in order to rest for the playoffs and it looks like Marcus Thornton is going to see a lot of minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Pierce, Johnson, Williams all GTD for Nets
    Paul Pierce (shoulder), Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are all listed as game-time decisions for the Nets on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's anyone's guess as to who might play for either the Nets or Knicks tonight, but guys like Marquis Teague, Marcus Thornton and Mason Plumlee are good bets for success. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • 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

  • Draymond goes for 20 & 12 with big line
    Draymond Green scored 20 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including four threes) with 12 rebounds, five assists, four steals and two blocks in Monday's win over the Wolves.

    Advice: Green was everywhere and though the Warriors are talking about resting guys on Wednesday, he will probably be the last core player to get time off. He should be owned in all formats unless he's declared out between now and then. Rotoworld.com
