  • Shaun Livingston (toe) back in action vs. TOR
    Shaun Livingston (toe) played 29 minutes in his return to action on Saturday, scoring 10 points with three rebounds and three assists in the road victory.

    Advice: Livingston was typically effective, making 4-of-6 FGs and both of his FT attempts, and his return took some pressure off fellow starters Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. He averaged 26.0 minutes per game this season and the Nets don't play again until Tuesday, so Livingston should be raring to go for Game 2. Rotoworld.com

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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

  • Nemanja Nedovic (calf) not available Saturday
    Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not be available for the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He hurt himself while playing for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the D-League playoffs, but even healthy he'd be unlikely to step on the court for Golden State. Rotoworld.com

  • Beno Udrih steps up in Grizzlies' PG rotation
    Grizzlies PG Beno Udrih will take on a bigger role in the playoffs with Nick Calathes suspended 20 games for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy.

    Advice: Calathes was averaging 15 minutes per game and he proved to be invaluable when Mike Conley missed games in February, but his playing time will now fall to Udrih. Although he's only played a handful of minutes with Memphis, Udrih is a career 46.1 percent shooter (35.6 percent from downtown) and he boasts a solid assist-to-turnover ratio of 2.5. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters shoot down drama
    Luol Deng said that Cavaliers guards Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters "love" to play together and have no off-court issues.

    Advice: "There's times where they've looked great," Deng said. "They're human, but in terms of can they play together? Yeah. I've played in this league for 10 years and I know they can." The talented duo have struggled to co-exist offensively, a problem which may have been exacerbated by keeping Waiters in a sixth-man role early in the season, but they showed steady improvement last in the season and their mutual respect bodes well for the future of the Cavs backcourt.

  • NBA suspends Nick Calathes for 20 games
    Nick Calathes will be suspended 20 games for violation of the NBA's Anti-Drug Policy.

    Advice: The suspension starts now which means he won't be see postseason action. Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, an over-the-counter athletic supplement. He was solid this year and filled in admirably while Mike Conley was out earlier this season, averaging 14.7 points, 4.7 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.3 triples in his seven starts. Beno Udrih will back up Mike Conley, who figures to get more than 40 minutes per night vs. OKC in round one. Rotoworld.com

  • Darrell Arthur planning to pick up option
    Darrell Arthur is planning to pick up his player option of $3.4 million this offseason.

    Advice: It's kind of a no-brainer for Arthur after yet another injury-plagued season. He played just 17.1 minutes per game and couldn't really get much playing time despite the Nuggets having very little depth down the stretch. He The 26-year-old forward won't have much fantasy value next season. Rotoworld.com

  • The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic on Friday
    The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic from the D-League on Friday.

    Advice: He was sent to the D-League for extra playing time against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Kuzmic grabbed a game-high 18 rebounds in the win. In three D-League games he posted averages of 20.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, and shot an outstanding 77.1 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockets recall Canaan and Covington
    The Rockets recalled Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington on Friday.

  • 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

  • Lakers plan to keep Marshall on team option
    The Lakers plan to pick up Kendall Marshall's $915,000 team option.

    Advice: The Lakers need bodies given their nine unrestricted free agents. Marshall was asked to do more than he's capable of this year, but got valuable experience while running the show for most of the year. In 45 starts, he averaged 8.1 points, 9.5 assists, 1.3 3-pointers and 1.0 steals. Marshall isn't a good enough shooter and has too many physical limitations to be a plus NBA point guard, but he'd be a fine backup. Rotoworld.com

  • Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday
    Shaun Livingston (toe) is practicing Friday.

    Advice: Livingston sat out the final five games of the regular season to rest his sore big toe. He's fully expected to play and start in Game 1 against the Raptors Saturday. Livingston was an underrated glue guy during the regular season, averaging 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 steals in his 54 starts. Rotoworld.com

  • Ramon Sessions would welcome return to MILW
    Free agent Ramon Sessions said he'd welcome a return to Milwaukee.

    Advice: Sessions is one of the few players in the league who actually embraces the dysfunction in Milwaukee. He was drafted there at No. 56 overall in 2007. "I want to stay loyal to them like they did to me," he said. We're not sure if the Bucks want Sessions back, but we do know he's still a fantasy asset whenever he's getting significant minutes. In 28 games for the Bucks this season, Sessions averaged 15.8 points, 4.8 assists and 3.1 rebounds. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Bulls say Rose will return at 100 percent
    Bulls GM Gar Forman said there's "no question" Derrick Rose (knee) will come back and be 100 percent" next season.

    Advice: In a vacuum, Rose's surgery to repair his meniscus isn't a crippling procedure. It helps athletes maintain the cushion in their knee so there aren't more problems down the line. But when combined with Rose's ugly rehab from his 2012 ACL tear, there's obvious reason for concern. This is a player that relies on athleticism -- not a jump shot -- to be dominant. Rose averaged just 15.9 points and 4.3 assists on 35.4 percent shooting in 10 games this season. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Nedovic out with a calf injury
    Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not play on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's had a tough time staying in the lineup and played just 6.2 minutes per game with the Warriors this season. They're going to be shorthanded tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:08 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.

  • Shaun Livingston (toe) out again vs. Cavs
    Shaun Livingston (toe) will sit out Wednesday's road game in Cleveland.

    Advice: This marks Livingston's fifth straight DNP and the Nets can only hope that he's ready for the first round of the playoffs, as he's been an invaluable part of their backcourt rotation all season long. Marcus Thornton and Alan Anderson will take on more minutes and responsibilities in his continued absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Shaun Livingston ruled out for Tuesday
    Shaun Livingston will not play again on Tuesday, as he continues to deal with an injured big toe.

    Advice: Livingston has now missed four straight games, but as long as the toe's not broken, you have to think he'll be ready for the playoffs. Marcus Thornton should once again see big minutes in his absence. 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
  • Michael Beasley scores 18 points off bench
    Michael Beasley scored 18 points in Monday's blowout 114-93 loss to the Wizards, adding five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: The Heat sat Chris Bosh and LeBron James tonight to allow Beasley to put up a nice line in his home town. He'll likely be looking at another chance on Wednesday vs. the Sixers with the Heat locked into the two spot in the Eastern Conference. Considering how he likes to dominate the ball, Beasley could be looking at a big night should Miami sit their guys out again. Rotoworld.com

  • Nemanja Nedovic back up with GSW
    The Warriors recalled Nemanja Nedovic on Monday.

    Advice: He's had a handful of injuries this season and played just 6.2 minutes per game in 23 contests with the Warriors. Nedovic also shot just 20.5 percent from the field in those games and has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:39 pm
  • Warriors call up Kuzmic and Nedovic
    The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic and Nemanja Nedovic on Monday.

    Advice: Even with Andrew Bogut at less than 100 percent, Kuzmic is unlikely to play much with the Warriors. He has no fantasy value and had a quiet rookie season. Rotoworld.com
  • Darrell Arthur traveling for Tuesday night
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is traveling for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers and is expected to play.

    Advice: He suffered a knee injury on Saturday and has really struggled to stay healthy. Arthur's minutes will likely be capped around 20, so he's not a strong start on a two-game night. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley likely to start at SF on Mon.
    Michael Beasley is likely to start at SF on Monday with LeBron James (rest) doubtful to play.

    Advice: Beasley has played exactly one minute in Miami's past five games, but there's a good chance he'll get aired out vs. the Wizards. In two previous starts this season, Beasley averaged 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27 minutes per contest. He's a D.C. native, adding further intrigue to his potential for a big game tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Draymond Green quiet in return to GSW bench
    With David Lee back in the starting lineup on Sunday, Draymond Green shifted to a reserve role and scored three points in 22 minutes of action.

    Advice: He hit one 3-pointer with four rebounds, two assists and one steal. Green has proven to be a versatile option in both real life and fantasy leagues, but his value is crippled with Lee healthy and starting at PF. Rotoworld.com
