  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 It could be rescinded and he could be allowed to play, but we're guessing Doc Rivers will take it easy on all the starters in a somewhat meaningless game.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.
    Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Timofey Mozgov with 18 & 11 after injury
    Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game briefly with a right knee injury, but returned to finish with 18 points, 11 rebounds and a block in a loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: He's really turned it on over the last few weeks and his injury is no big deal. All indications are that he'll get solid minutes again in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors.
    Yesterday, 10:23 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.
    Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Mason Plumlee goes for 16 & 9 in loss
    Mason Plumlee hit 7-of-9 shots for 16 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's made a name for himself over the past 30 games and should have another nice one on Wednesday, with or without the regular starters playing for Jason Kidd.
    Yesterday, 8:33 pm
  • Kevin Garnett scoreless vs. Knicks
    Kevin Garnett missed all four of his shots and failed to score in 15 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: Even if the Nets are going to try to secure the No. 5 seed, playing KG any more regular season minutes seems pointless. Look for him to sit tomorrow.
    Yesterday, 8:32 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.
    Yesterday, 8:17 pm
  • Timofey Mozgov leaves, returns on Tuesday
    Timofey Mozgov left Tuesday's game early with a right knee injury and went to the locker room, but was able to return a short time later.

    Advice: He must have just knocked his knee, avoiding a serious injury. If you need Mozgov in your lineup tonight, a crisis looks to have been avoided.
    Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Blazers may rest LaMarcus Aldridge, Mo-Will
    Blazers coach Terry Stotts said that he may rest LaMarcus Aldridge and Mo Williams for Portland's season finale on Wednesday.

    Advice: We should learn Stotts' plan after shootaround on Wednesday, and some precautionary DNPs aren't unexpected since the Blazers cannot move up or down in the playoff standings. Even if they win on Wednesday while the fourth-place Rockets lose, the Rockets will retain home-court advantage because they own the tie-breaker over the Blazers.
    Yesterday, 1:51 pm
  • Pero Antic's ankle sore w/ playoff looming
    Pero Antic said on Monday that his sore right ankle continues to bother him, but he will play through the discomfort in the postseason.

    Advice: Antic had three points and three rebounds in 19 minutes on Monday and there's a good chance the Hawks will rest him for Wednesday's game, since they're already locked into the eighth seed in the East. To upset the top-seed Pacers, Atlanta will need Antic and Elton Brand to stay healthy and give them quality minutes at center.
    Yesterday, 1:16 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.
    Yesterday, 12:40 pm
  • Roy Hibbert will play first half on Wednesday
    Roy Hibbert will play vs. the Magic on Wednesday but he may sit out the second half.

    Advice: The Pacers may simply to trying to get Hibbert some traction before the playoffs. He's been dreadful over the past five games with a True Shooting percentage of just 29.2 percent, and a -12.6 net rating per 100 possessions.
    Yesterday, 11:21 am
  • 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.
    Yesterday, 8:35 am
  • Bogut could puncture lung by playing
    Andrew Bogut is likely out for the playoffs due to a broken rib on his right side.

    Advice: The broken rib is close to his lung and he could risk puncturing his right lung by playing. And since it generally takes a broken rib about six weeks to heal, Bogut sounds extremely doubtful to play again this season. It's a tough blow for the Dubs, and means Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights are going to see a lot of minutes in the postseason.
    Yesterday, 7:16 am
  • Tim Duncan returned to action on Monday April 14.
    Yesterday, 1:21 am
  • Speights could play big minutes in finale
    Marreese Speights scored nine points on 4-of-13 shooting with seven rebounds and one block in 16 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Wolves.

    Advice: Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely and Jermaine O'Neal (10 points, four boards, one steal) is a candidate to be held out of Wednesday's game. That makes Speights a likely target to carry the load down low, and he has a history of big games when he's allowed to shoot at will. Hilton Armstrong could also take over O'Neal's lower-minute role.
    Monday, 10:54 pm
  • 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.
    Monday, 10:50 pm
  • Morris' 21 points not enough in loss to MEM
    Markieff Morris hit 10-of-16 shots for 21 points, two rebounds, one steal and three blocks in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Fellow Most Improved Player candidate Gerald Green fizzled out with seven points on 2-of-4 shooting, but the duo exceeded expectations in both fantasy and reality. Factor in Jeff Hornacek's expected high finish in Coach of the Year voting and there will be plenty of awards season buzz for Phoenix.
    Monday, 10:31 pm
  • Z-Bo's 32 points lead the way; Grizz clinch
    Zach Randolph scored 32 points on 15-of-25 shooting with nine rebounds and one steal in Monday's playoff-clinching win over the Suns.

    Advice: Randolph forced the Grizzlies into the playoffs by both gritting and grinding in a back-and-forth thriller. Marc Gasol added 18 points with eight boards and three assists, and Mike Conley hit a huge three to finish with 14 points, three rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a three in the win. The Grizzlies now face the Mavs on Wednesday to decide which team gets the No. 7 seed.
    Monday, 10:27 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.
    Monday, 8:00 pm
  • Antic (ankle) returns and scores three points
    Pero Antic (ankle) returned to action in Monday's loss, playing 19 minutes on his way to three points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Advice: Antic hasn't shown owners anything to warrant a pickup, while Elton Brand (12 points, seven rebounds, two steals, three blocks, 21 minutes) continues to put up must-start numbers in his typical low-minute role.
    Monday, 7:51 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (ribs) out for regular season
    Andrew Bogut (ribs) will not play in the final two regular season games for the Warriors due to a fractured rib.

    Advice: His status for the playoffs has yet to be determined and he's almost certainly going to miss time there, as well. Bogut had X-rays on his ribs on Sunday and has no timetable to return. Jermaine O'Neal will likely start for the Warriors in the final two games while Marreese Speights could help off the bench. Plus, coach Mark Jackson figures to go with a Draymond Green-David Lee frontcourt combo here and there. If Bogut doesn't make it back for the playoffs, they could be in trouble with how poorly they've protected the paint in the past couple months.
    Monday, 5:39 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.
    Monday, 4:05 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.
    Monday, 10:31 am
  • Andrew Bogut has X-rays on sore ribs
    Andrew Bogut (ribs) had X-rays late on Sunday but the Warriors haven't yet announced the results.

    Advice: Bogut left in overtime after getting hit squarely in the ribs and his loss would be a huge blow to Golden State's playoff ambitions, so we can only hope for good news once the test results are disclosed. Jermaine O'Neal and Marreese Speights will step into bigger roles if Bogut is forced to miss any time, with Draymond Green also picking up extra minutes in the frontcourt.
    Monday, 7:58 am
  • Kevin Garnett survives scary fall on back
    Kevin Garnett landed hard on his back during Sunday's game but returned to play 19 minutes, finishing with three points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: KG didn't seem to favor his back after the fall, but we'll keep a close eye on his status over the next few days since he's already missed 19 games due to back spasms this season.
    Sunday, 10:24 pm
  • 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.
    Sunday, 9:08 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (ribs) will not return Sunday
    Andrew Bogut injured his ribs late in Sunday's game and will not return.

    Advice: The Warriors are still fighting for meaningful playoff positioning, and Bogut left while the game was within one point in overtime, so there's some cause for concern. For now we're considering him questionable to return on Monday -- with Jermaine O'Neal a candidate to be rested, Marreese Speights may be in for a busy evening.
    Sunday, 8:40 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.
    Sunday, 7:13 pm
  • 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.
    Sunday, 5:53 pm
  • Roy Hibbert goes scoreless in win over OKC
    Roy Hibbert missed all nine attempts from the field against the Thunder on Sunday with six boards, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He has been an absolute mess on both ends of the floor lately. In his previous four games, Hibbert put up a rebounding rate of 3.4 percent, which is hard to even comprehend for a guy at 7'2". He's also made just 21 of his last 81 shots and his offensive game is fried. Coach Frank Vogel kept his All-Star on the bench for most of the home stretch and he's clearly aware Hibbert is not the same player. He has some soul searching to do to get his mojo back for the playoffs.
    Sunday, 1:05 pm
  • Roy Hibbert seriously struggling for Indiana
    Roy Hibbert has looked downright awful over the past 10 games, averaging 9.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, and just 1.3 blocks during that stretch.

    Advice: If the Pacers want to compete for a championship they will need to get much more out of their franchise center. Hibbert started the year off with a bang, but his post all-star break numbers have dropped off substantially (9.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.9 blocks). With possible rest days coming up in Indy's two remaining games, it wouldn't be the worst idea to drop the disappointing big man.
    Sunday, 7:53 am
  • 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.
  • Mozgov double-doubles, but a quiet one
    Timofey Mozgov, who had 23 points, 29 rebounds and three blocks on Thursday, double-doubled again on Saturday, but had just 11 points, 10 rebounds and zero blocks.

    Advice: It's hard to be disappointed with a double-double, but he wasn't nearly as fun to own tonight as he was 48 hours ago. He should finish up strong, so keep rolling him out there and hope for the best.
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • 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.
    Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • Pero Antic (ankle) will not play on Saturday
    Pero Antic (ankle) will not play on Saturday.

    Advice: He returned to play 18 minutes on Friday but may have aggravated his injury, so the Hawks will start Elton Brand at center and rely on guys like Mike Scott and Paul Millsap to pick up some of the slack.
    Saturday, 3:08 pm
  • 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.
    Friday, 11:45 pm
  • Speights takes advantage of Lakers on Friday
    Marreese Speights took advantage of the Lakers on Friday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers don't even try to play defense so owners should keep that in mind when assessing Speights going forward. The Warriors are basically locked into the No. 6 seed so they may rest some of their key big men down the stretch, and in that case Speights would be worth a look.
    Friday, 11:42 pm
  • David Lee returned to action on Friday April 11.
    Friday, 11:27 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores 20 points in loss
    Markieff Morris scored 20 points with seven boards against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: He entered tonight with some fantastic post-break averages of 15.8 points, 6.6 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.5 triples on 51.8 percent from the field. Morris was expected to be the opening-night starter, but his one-game suspension to start the year moved him the bench and that changed the mind of coach Jeff Hornacek. That may have been a blessing in disguise and he's in the mix for Sixth Man of the Year.
    Friday, 10:37 pm
  • Hibbert terrible in big loss against champs
    Roy Hibbert hit yet another low in Friday's loss to the Heat, scoring just five points on 2-of-7 shooting with one rebound and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Hibbert looks slow and out of shape. How anybody would talk about him as a Defensive Player of the Year candidate is beyond us when the real question in Indy is whether or not he should cede big-time minutes to mediocre Ian Mahinmi. Feel free to cut him for a hot free agent.
    Friday, 9:22 pm
  • Garnett scores four points with 11 boards
    Kevin Garnett scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 18 minutes on Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: Garnett's status is probably going to be judged on a game-to-game basis by Jason Kidd and Co., so adding him is risky territory for those deep league owners hunting big man stats.
    Friday, 8:37 pm
  • Plumlee scores 17 points on 6-of-6 shooting
    Mason Plumlee hit all six of his field goal attempts on Friday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 29 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Plumlee is cruising right now with averages of 14.3 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 combined steals and blocks, and 83.3 percent field goal shooting over his last four games. He's averaging 27.4 minutes in that span and it wouldn't be surprising if he keeps it up while the Nets rest their older players. Those numbers are good enough for mid-round value and owners needing a big man should pick him up.
    Friday, 8:30 pm
  • Antic (ankle) returns to action on Friday
    Pero Antic (ankle) returned to action on Friday, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Antic could theoretically hit a few threes as the season winds down but owners can't really even count on that. If he can get back on track the next time out, we'll let you know.
    Friday, 8:14 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.
    Friday, 6:27 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.
    Friday, 3:44 pm
  • Pero Antic will play, Elton Brand will start
    Pero Antic (ankle) will come off the bench against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Elton Brand will stay in the starting lineup after an impressive double-double on Wednesday. Antic's sore ankle has kept him limited numerous times since the break and he might just split the minutes down the middle with Brand tonight. Mike Scott also takes a hit here.
    Friday, 3:12 pm
  • Pero Antic listed as probable to face Nets
    Pero Antic (ankle) is listed as probable to face the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He missed Wednesday's game with his lingering ankle soreness and the amount of time off since Tuesday's game seems to have helped him. Elton Brand was terrific in that Wednesday game, so anyone who picked up EB from that game might want to reconsider using him tonight. Antic is not an option in most leagues.
    Friday, 2:32 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.
    Friday, 10:04 am
  • Pero Antic headed for game-time call
    Pero Antic (ankle) is a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Antic did participate in the morning shootaround and the Hawks are desperately trying to hold off the Knicks for the final playoff spot in the East. We'd expect Antic to be in the starting five.
    Friday, 8:46 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.
    Friday, 6:18 am
  • Andrew Bogut and Warriors get worked on glass
    Andrew Bogut had one of his worst games of the season against the Nuggets on Thursday with four points, eight boards, one assist and two blocks.

    Advice: When your team allows 63 boards some of the blame has to go on Bogut. He didn't look to be 100 percent tonight and missed some chances on contested rebounds. His pelvic bruise from last week might not be a factor and coach Mark Jackson said he wants to play his guys down the stretch, so Bogut might not be rested.
    Thursday, 11:01 pm
  • Mozgov'd: Timofey grabs 29 boards in win
    Timofey Mozgov set an NBA season high with 29 boards against the Warriors on Thursday to go with 23 points, three assists, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: The Nuggets owned the glass and won the battle of the boards 63-38, including 25-6 on the offensive ends. Mozgov played a season-high 43 minutes tonight, which was a bit of a surprise since a lot of teams have gone small against the Warriors. Tonight's game might change that strategy, but the Nuggets are actually playing well with big wins over the Warriors and Rockets in a road back-to-back set. As for Mozgov, he's a must-own player the rest of the way with six nice games in a row.
    Thursday, 10:21 pm
  • 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.
    Thursday, 10:02 pm
