  • Tyler Hansbrough will start over Amir Johnson
    Tyler Hansbrough will continue to start over Amir Johnson against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: Johnson recently returned from an ankle injury and has come off the bench for the last two games, but it is a little surprising to see head coach Dwane Casey go with Psycho T again. Johnson should still see minutes in the mid 20s, but owners in daily leagues should probably avoid both players for now. Hansbrough started the last six games of the regular season, so the Raptors are probably just looking for some continuity.

  • Jared Dudley (back) will play on Saturday
    Jared Dudley (back) will play on Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: The Bucks rested him for the final two games of the season, so he should be fresh for the playoffs. Dudley is a seasoned veteran, and his experience will be a huge boost for the young Bucks. Expect Dudley to see minutes in the mid 20s tonight.

  • Jerryd Bayless, Jared Dudley will play on Sat
    Jerryd Bayless (sore neck) and Jared Dudley (back) will play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Bayless missed Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Celtics because of his sore neck, but he has since returned to practice and was never in danger of missing this contest. He averages over 22 minutes per game off the bench, and his return will likely push rookie Tyler Ennis out of the rotation.

  • Joel Embiid fined several times by the 76ers?
    Joel Embiid was reportedly fined thousands of dollars for showing up late and missing multiple rehab sessions this season.

    Advice: Head coach Brett Brown recently said that he questioned Embiid's work ethic at times this season, so this report likely has some validity. This is definitely a story that he will continue to follow, and if you factor in the uncertainties surrounding his foot injury, he will be a high-risk, high-reward option next season. Hopefully, we will get a good chance to evaluate him at the summer league if he is cleared to play.

  • Allen Crabbe could start vs. Grizzlies on Sunday
    Head coach Terry Stotts said that Allen Crabbe could get the nod over C.J. McCollum in the first unit because of his defense.

    Advice: "I think Allen complements Damian [Lillard] and [LaMarcus Aldridge]," Stotts said, "as far as being defensive minded, not needing shots, not needing the ball." This isn't that surprising, as Stotts has been known to frequently alter his rotations. McCollum could still see close to 30 minutes of action, as he has simply been too good to keep off the floor. If Arron Afflalo returns from his shoulder injury soon, Crabbe will likely fall out of the rotation, while McCollum's role should still be safe.

  • Rich Cho says Lance Stephenson must improve
    Hornets General Manager Rich Cho said that Lance Stephenson must improve after his disappointing performance this season.

    Advice: "Like I told Lance yesterday, I didn’t think he played well," Cho said. "He’s got to improve. In the 2013-14 season he shot 35 percent from [3-point range]. This year it was 17 percent. He’s got to improve that. He knows he had a bad year. I think he’s committed to getting better this summer." There is no denying that Stephenson is loaded with upside, but his stock is going to be really low heading into fantasy drafts next season. The Hornets may also continue to look for trade partners over the summer, so a move away from Charlotte could potentially give him a boost. That being said, It's probably best to let another owner deal with him next season.

  • Bird would like to bring back Luis Scola
    Larry Bird said that he would like to bring back Luis Scola next season.

    Advice: Scola is a quality reserve in the league, but with season averages of just 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds, he’s nowhere near being a standard league asset.
    Yesterday, 12:42 pm
  • James Ennis will work on his ball-handling
    James Ennis said that his primary focus during the offseason will be "getting stronger" and working on his "ball-handling."

    Advice: Ennis showed some flashes during his rookie season with the Heat, and he ended the regular-season on a high note by putting up his first-career triple-double. If Luol Deng opts out of his contract and leaves Miami during the offseason, Ennis could potentially be looking at a starting role with the Heat. However, there are far too many ifs right now to accurately project Ennis' value, and with season averages of just 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds per game, he has a long ways to go before entering the standard league equation.
    Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • Lance Stephenson searching for confidence
    Lance Stephenson acknowledged that his 3-point shooting was "terrible" this season, and he will spend the summer trying to regain his confidence after a horrific season with the Hornets.

    Advice: "My 3-point percentage was the lowest ever in history. That’s terrible," Stephenson said. "I have to come in and figure out how to be a better shooter. Being a good shooter will help my overall game... It’s confidence – just wanting the shot to go in so bad and then you lose your confidence. That plays a major part when you don’t have confidence in your shot. This summer I’m going to find my confidence." Born Ready was not so ready for the move to Charlotte, and his name will likely regularly surface in various trade rumors throughout the year, it's finding a taker that's the tricky part.

  • Devin Harris (toe) downgraded to questionable
    Devin Harris (toe) has been downgraded to questionable for Game 1 against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: Rick Carlisle said on Thursday that Harris would play, so we're going to assume he's closer to probable than questionable. However, if he's forced to sit, it will open up minutes for J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton. Barea makes for the better daily league target sans Harris.

  • Alan Anderson (ankle) says he'll play Sunday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) said he'll be good to go for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: All signs are pointing towards Anderson being available, which dampens the value of Bajon Bogdanovic. He should see his minutes in the mid-20s if is indeed able to play on Sunday.

  • Tony Allen likely to be a game-time call
    Tony Allen (hamstring) is likely going to be a game-time decision for Game 1 on Sunday and did go through practice on Friday.

    Advice: The good news is that he expects to play. "I'm gonna try and test it," Allen said. "I've been amped up mentally. Physically I haven't. I'm just trying to get healthy as we go forward." He might have a minutes limit and could come off the bench. With Allen back, Jeff Green, Vince Carter and Courtney Lee lose some appeal.

  • Bird not planning on bringing back Watson
    Larry Bird said he doesn't think he'll be bringing back C.J. Watson next season.

    Advice: Injuries limited Watson to just 57 games, and while he's a capable backup point, he's not ever going to be the difference maker on a championship team. He finished the 2014-15 season with averages of 10.0 points, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.2 three-pointers per game. He shouldn't have a problem signing on with another team, but as nothing more than a backup point guard, he's not going to have any value in standard leagues.

  • Darius Morris (flu) doesn't practice Friday
    Darius Morris (flu) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: We're going to be considering Morris questionable for Game 1 on Sunday, but he's a negligible part of the Nets' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications if he's unavailable.
    Yesterday, 10:16 am

  • Alan Anderson (ankle) practices on Friday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

    Advice: Anderson didn't play in the Nets' final seven games of the season, but it sounds like there's a chance he's ready to go for Game 1 when the Nets open up their first round series against the Hawks on Sunday. His return to action would likely take away some minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic.

  • Carmelo Anthony says he's 'ahead of schedule'
    Carmelo Anthony said that he's "ahead of schedule" in his recovery during a recent interview, and that being ready for training camp next season is a non-issue.

    Advice: "I’ll be ready in June," Anthony said. "I’ll probably be ready a little before June, back to my regular program and working out... The rehab is going extremely well. I feel very positive where I will be about next training camp. I’m actually excited about the progress I’ve made in a short period of time." It sounds like Anthony will have no problem being ready for training camp next season after only making it through 40 games this year. He has first-round upside, but knee injuries are nothing to play with, so he'll certainly carry some risk with an early-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.

  • Report: Sefolosha underwent surgery Thursday
    Thabo Sefolosha reportedly underwent surgery on Thursday, and he's expected to be ready for the 2015-16 season opener.

    Advice: We wish Sefolosha the best, and all signs are pointing towards him making a full recovery. With Thabo out of the picture, Atlanta will give DeMarre Carroll all the run he can handle, while Kent Bazemore having the opportunity for extended minutes off the bench. The Hawks open up their first-round series against the Nets on Sunday.

  • Devin Harris (toe) will play on Saturday
    Updating a previous report, Mavs' head coach Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris (turf toe) will play in Game 1 of the playoffs on Saturday.

    Advice: Harris' return to the rotation will lead to fewer minutes for J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton.

  • Dudley (back), Bayless (neck) practice Thurs
    Jared Dudley (back), and Jerryd Bayless (neck) practiced on Thursday.

    Advice: Dudley missed the final two games of the regular-season with a sore back, while Bayless missed the regular-season finale with a sore neck. Neither of these injuries sounds serious, so these guys should be ready for Game 1 against the Bulls on Saturday. That being said, both players will likely have their minutes trimmed down a bit for the postseason, and they're unlikely to do much on the stat sheet with the guys ahead of them in the rotation fully healthy.
    Thursday, 2:27 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) expected to play Game 1
    Rick Carlisle said that Devin Harris (toe) looks "ready to go" for Game 1 of the playoffs.

    Advice: All signs are pointing towards Harris being available when the playoffs kickoff on Saturday, and his return to the rotation will mean fewer minutes for guys like Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea.

  • Lionel hopes Anderson can return for playoffs
    Lionel Hollins said that he was hopeful that Alan Anderson (ankle) could return for the playoffs, but he also doesn't know where Anderson is at in his recovery.

    Advice: Anderson spent the final seven games of the season on the sidelines, but the Nets don't have their first playoff game until Sunday, giving him an additional three days to get things right. Hollins likes Anderson's defense, so if he is able to go, he'd likely siphon away some minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic.

  • Carmelo not sure he'll ever be 100 percent
    Carmelo Anthony said he doesn't think he'll ever be 100 percent, but will be fully-recored and injury-free in time for training camp.

    Advice: While it isn't exactly reassuring to hear a 30-year-old coming off knee surgery say he won't ever be 100 percent, it sounds like Melo will be ready to roll for the 2015-16 season. "I don't think I'll ever be a hundred percent, but as far as being fully recovered, injury-free, I'll be at that point," Anthony said. "If I lost my drive over this time then I shouldn't even be here, to be honest with you. My drive, everything that I've been through, and even this year in particular, I'm like pulling my hair out right now because I'm ready to get back on the court. I'm ready to prove everybody wrong." Anthony has the potential to deliver first-round fantasy value next season, but would be a very risky proposition at that draft spot coming off knee surgery.

  • 76ers coach questions Embiid's work ethic
    76ers head coach Brett Brown said there were times that he was disappointed with Joel Embiid's work ethic this season.

    Advice: Brown previously said he would be personally disappointed if Embiid isn't able to play in the summer league and on Thursday added, "there were times I wasn't happy with [Embiid's work ethic]." While Embiid is still young, it's not a great sign to have your coach question your work ethic, so here's to hoping the 21-year-old takes Brown's words to heart as he continues his rehab this summer. Embiid will enter 2015-16 fantasy drafts similarly to Nerlens Noel in 2014-15 and will provide his future owners with a high-risk, high-reward gamble.

  • Carmelo Anthony says he'd be No. 2 option
    Carmelo Anthony said on Thursday that he wouldn't have a problem with becoming the No. 2 option on the Knicks if they're able to land another superstar.

    Advice: No, it's not April Fool's Day, as that happened a couple weeks ago. And whether the Knicks are able to get a superstar to come play for a team that was led by Langston Galloway, Jason Smith, Tim Hardaway and Cole Aldrich for much of the season isn't going to be an easy task. And finally, whether Melo can actually happily become a support player is also up for debate. It should be an interesting summer in New York. Marc Berman of the Post also reports that Melo's ahead of schedule as he recovers from knee surgery. He's expected to begin running and basketball activities on June 1, and then will start scrimmaging at a later date. He should be ready for the start of next season.

  • Jared Dudley likely to be ready for playoffs
    Jared Dudley sat out for a second straight game due to a sore back in Wednesday's finale against the Celtics.

    Advice: However, he's expected to be ready to go for the Bucks in the playoffs, which start Saturday against the Bulls.
    Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • James Ennis double-doubles vs. Philly
    James Ennis had the first double-double of his career against the 76ers on Wednesday with 17 points, 12 boards, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 48 minutes.

    Advice: He actually played seven minutes at shooting guard, which is very rare for him. Ennis was a very exciting player over the summer, but he was a mild disappointment this season partially due to the fact that the Heat really didn't play him at SG even while they were shorthanded. Apparently having six players was enough for the team to change its mind.
    Wednesday, 8:15 pm
  • Allen Crabbe, Alonzo Gee are starting
    Allen Crabbe and Alonzo Gee will start against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: They both have very small usage rates and shouldn't be involved in the offense much. Fantasy owners can probably avoid this one tonight with the Blazers locked in as the fourth seed.
    Wednesday, 5:09 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) expects to play in Game 1
    Devin Harris is dealing with turf toe in his left big toe, but he expects to be ready for the first game of the playoffs.

    Advice: Harris won't play on Wednesday and he recently had a shot to calm the inflammation in his bruised and swollen toe. He had toe surgery during the offseason but it was a different digit on the same foot, and the good news is that he doesn't sound concerned about any long-term damage. His absence leaves more playing time for J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton on Wednesday.

  • Jared Dudley out for Wednesday
    Jared Dudley will rest against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: There could be more rested players on the way for the Bucks. Plus, the Bucks will likely limit some of their guys.
    Wednesday, 3:22 pm
  • Alan Anderson (ankle) out for Wednesday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: It will be his seventh consecutive game out of the lineup. With Anderson out, suddenly hot Bojan Bogdanovic should get more chances to score in a must-win game.

    W, 101-88 vs Orl
  • C.J. Watson will not play on Wednesday
    C.J. Watson (elbow) will not play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's had elbow trouble for a long time and it will likely affect him in the playoffs, assuming the Pacers make it. With Watson out, Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles are stepping up next to Paul George.
    Wednesday, 11:54 am

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) out for Wednesday
    Lance Stephenson (toe) will not play vs. the Raptors on Wednesday as expected.

    Advice: The trade rumors are going to be flying around Stephenson all summer, and a move away from Charlotte would portably be best for both sides. For obvious reasons, Stephenson's stock will be really low leading into fantasy draft's next season. Troy Daniels and Brian Roberts should see plenty of minutes off the bench.

  • Luis Scola scoreless in 17 minutes on Tuesday
    Luis Scola finished Tuesday's sloppy 99-95 win vs. the Wizards with zero points, assists or blocks in 17 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The veteran power forward has had some nice moments since the All-Star break, including a 23-point game on Apr. 5, but tonight was not one of them. He grabbed seven rebounds and stole the ball once but missed both of his field goal attempts, and contributed to the Pacers' bench shooting a horrific 25.8 percent from the field.
    Tuesday, 8:45 pm
  • Tyler Hansbrough scoreless in start at PF
    Tyler Hansbrough started Tuesday's game in place of Amir Johnson but finished scoreless with six rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Raptors have the Atlantic Division wrapped up but tonight's loss dropped them a full game behind the idle Bulls for the No. 3 seed. Hansbrough is likely to slide back to a reserve role on Wednesday and tonight's dud should be enough incentive to avoid him in all fantasy formats.
    Tuesday, 7:32 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) out Wednesday vs. IND
    Tony Allen (hamstring) will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: There was some hope that Allen would be able to return for the regular-season finale, but that will not be the case. With Allen sidelined, Courtney Lee, Vince Carter, and Jeff Green will all split his minutes, with Green offering the most upside out of the group.
    Tuesday, 3:30 pm
    W, 95-83 vs Ind
  • Devin Harris (toe) out Wednesday vs. Portland
    Devin Harris (toe) will not play Wednesday vs. Portland.

    Advice: With Harris unavailable, look for J.J. Barea to pick up most of his minutes sliding into a Sixth Man role for the Mavericks. He's coming off an 18-point game, and he'll have a favorable matchup against a Blazers team that has been decimated by injuries, so he'll certainly be worth a look in daily leagues. Raymond Felton will also have the opportunity for extended minutes, but he's an extremely risky guy to deploy in most leagues.
    Tuesday, 2:36 pm
    W, 114-98 vs Por
  • Alan Anderson (ankle) questionable Wednesday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: If Anderson is able to return to action on Wednesday, a majority of his minutes will come at the expense of Bajon Bogdanovic. Anderson is only worth considering as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

  • Thabo Sefolosha addresses the media Tuesday
    Thabo Sefolosha addressed the media for the first time on Tuesday since his arrest last Wednesday that resulted in a season-ending broken fibula.

    Advice: "I will simply say that I am in great pain, that I have suffered significant injury and those were caused by the police." Sefolosha didn't go into a lot of detail, but he did say that he will undergo surgery in the next few days. We'll continue to monitor this story very closely.

  • NYPD Internal Affairs to interview Sefolosha
    NYPD Internal Affairs wants to interview Thabo Sefolosha about last week's nightclub incident, according to reports.

    Advice: According to sources, the Internal Affairs bureau of the New York City Police Department has contacted counsel for Thabo Sefolosha about interviewing him as a complaining witness in last week's incident. Sefolosha was arrested during the incident and his counsel has since questioned the NYPD's tactics during the arrest. Sefolosha broke his leg during the incident and will miss the rest of the 2015-16 season.

  • C.J. Watson will not play Tuesday vs Wizards
    C.J. Watson (elbow) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Watson will miss his fifth consecutive game on Tuesday's with a sore right elbow, but it's currently unclear if he'd be able to go if the Pacers make the playoffs. Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles will see big minutes with Watson out Tuesday and both make for solid plays in daily leagues.

  • Devin Harris (toe) out for game on Monday
    Devin Harris suffered a toe injury on Monday and will not return.

    Advice: The Mavs are resting players tonight, so holding Harris out tonight might be precautionary. Regardless, this is a tough blow to anyone who started him. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will get more run tonight.

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) out vs. Rockets
    Lance Stephenson (toe) will not play against the Rockets on Monday night.

    Advice: He's unlikely to play again in the finale either. Stephenson's first season with the Hornets is one of the bigger flops of the season and the team will likely be entertaining trade offers for him. With Born Ready out, Troy Daniels, Brian Roberts and Mo Williams figure to be the main bench scorers on the outside.

  • Alan Anderson out again on Monday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: It'll be his sixth straight game out of the lineup. Bojan Bogdanovic started the second half on Sunday and he could be looking at more minutes tonight based on his improved play. Give him a look in all leagues.

  • C.J. Watson not showing signs or improvement
    C.J. Watson's elbow is not showing any signs of improvement, and he's unlikely to play this week as a result.

    Advice: It's not yet clear if Watson would be able to go if the Pacers make the playoffs, but he's been out of the picture since April 3. Without him, the Pacers will lean a little harder on Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles.

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) likely done for season
    Lance Stephenson (toe) is highly unlikely to play again this season.

    Advice: The Hornets are out of the playoff race, so there is no reason to rush him back. This season can't end quick enough for Stephenson, and he has to be one of the most disappointing players in the league after playing so well for the Pacers last year. His owners will have a bad taste in their mouth heading into next season's fantasy drafts. Stephenson should be considered highly doubtful for Monday's game vs. Houston and Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors. Gerald Henderson, Troy Daniels and Jeff Taylor will benefit.

  • Devin Harris will not play on Sunday vs. LAL
    Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: The Mavericks don't have anything to play for, so it makes sense to get the veteran guard some rest. Harris should be fine for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, but we will have an update on his status after shootaround. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton could both see extra minutes tonight, but they aren't appealing options in most leagues.

  • Jared Dudley expected to rest Mon. & Wed.
    Jared Dudley went scoreless in 28 minutes off Milwaukee's bench on Sunday, and Jason Kidd said after the game that Dudley will likely rest on Monday and Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been struggling with back and knee issues lately, which helps to explain his 0-of-4 shooting on Sunday, and it makes sense for the Bucks to rest him with the No. 6 seed locked up. His absence should open up more minutes for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and even O.J. Mayo.
    Sunday, 2:49 pm
  • C.J. Watson (elbow) out Sunday vs. OKC
    C.J. Watson (elbow) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Miles, and Donald Sloan will help fill the void in Watson's absence. Miles has been the more consistent player over the past month, and he's worth a look in daily leagues.

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) ruled out for Sunday
    Lance Stephenson (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

  • C.J. Watson (elbow) is doubtful for Sunday
    C.J. Watson (elbow) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Watson's elbow is in pretty bad shape and it's possible that he may not return in the regular season. Don't count on Watson taking the court tonight, and expect Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Miles and Donald Sloan to all be in the mix for more minutes.

  • Brown hopes Embiid will play this summer
    Head coach Brett Brown would be "personally" disappointed if Joel Embiid (foot) isn't able to play in the summer league.

    Advice: "Personally, I expect him to play in the summer league," Brown said. "But if I guessed any of this wrong, I want to make sure that the club is on record not being definitive. We are not in the position to say that now." The 76ers have been extremely cautious with Embiid, and it wasn't a surprise to see them hold him out for the entire season. Embiid is loaded with potential, and it will be interesting to see if he can get in some game action this offseason. He will be a high-risk, high-reward player in fantasy drafts next season.

  • Allen Crabbe scores career-high 11 points
    Allen Crabbe scored a career-high 11 points vs. the Jazz on Saturday, adding four boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo (shoulder) is expected to miss 1-2 weeks, so Crabbe could be in line for more minutes down the stretch. Having said that, Crabbe is only on the radar in deeper leagues, and C.J. McCollum should continue to be the primary beneficiary in Afflalo's absence.
    Saturday, 10:15 pm
  • Tyler Hansbrough scores two points
    Tyler Hansbrough scored just two points against the Heat on Saturday with 10 rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He had a bloody nose tonight and he had a little trouble with Hassan Whiteside. Amir Johnson would have played in a playoff game and he's been going through shootaround, so he has a very good chance to play on Tuesday. Even if Amir is out, it's hard to keep Hansbrough on your roster with two whole days off in daily season-long leagues.
    Saturday, 7:49 pm
  • Alan Anderson (ankle) out again for Sunday
    Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Sunday.

    Advice: It will be his fifth consecutive game out of the lineup. Anderson did not even travel and coach Lionel Hollins hinted Anderson could be out for the rest of the regular season. Bojan Bogdanovic is worth a look in all leagues.

  • C.J. Watson likely out for regular season
    C.J. Watson (elbow) will likely miss the final three games of the regular season.

    Advice: His sore right elbow has kept him out since Sunday and it is probably going to be an issue for him for the foreseeable future in his career. Watson tore a ligament in his right elbow back in 2008, he needed surgery, and it hasn't been the same since. Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles benefit.

  • Thabo Sefolosha hit by a nightstick?
    A new video released by TMZ appears to show an officer hitting Thabo Sefolosha with a nightstick.

    Advice: You can see six different officers tugging Sefolosha around in the video, and then one officer decides to swing his nightstick towards him. Police reports suggest that Sefolosha charged at an officer which started the altercation, but there hasn't been any video evidence to support that claim yet. Sefolosha suffered a broken fibula during the scuffle which will end his NBA season, but this story is far from over and we will continue to pass along updates when we know more.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) could return April 15
    Tony Allen (hamstring) could return for the regular-season finale against the Pacers on April 15.

    Advice: He will remain out for Saturday's game against the Clippers as well as Monday vs. the Warriors, but the Grizzlies will at least be glad that Allen is on track to return before the playoffs. Allen shouldn't be owned in almost any league following this news, while Courtney Lee, Vince Carter and Jeff Green will all benefit.

  • Devin Harris gets loose for 21 and nine
    Devin Harris scored 21 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-9 shots (including three treys) with two rebounds, nine assists and three steals in 29 minutes against the Nuggets.

    Advice: This game featured two overtimes and Rajon Rondo (rest) was also out. If Rondo misses more time because the Mavs have nothing to play for, then Harris and Raymond Felton (13 points, five assists and more) will be worth a look. Just keep in mind that the Nuggets aren't exactly world beaters these days.

  • Tyler Hansbrough has a solid night vs. Magic
    Tyler Hansbrough scored 16 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 36 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: Amir Johnson (ankle) went through shootaround today and is expected to play on Saturday. Hansbrough averaged 15.0 points and 10.0 boards in his previous two games, but he will likely take a backseat on Saturday. If you've enjoyed his last three, you can probably make a proactive cut here.

  • Alan Anderson without a timetable
    Alan Anderson (ankle) doesn't have a timetable to return.

    Advice: "I don't know if he's coming back at all," coach Lionel Hollins said. Bojan Bogdanovic is playing some encouraging ball right now and is worth a look in standard leagues. Anderson can be dropped everywhere.

  • NBPA investigating Thabo Sefolosha's arrest
    The NBPA is launching an investigation into the tactics used by the NYPD during Thabo Sefolosha's arrest early Wednesday morning that resulted in a season-ending broken fibula that will require surgery.

    Advice: "The players union is concerned about the circumstances of Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic's arrest and is doing its own investigation of the situation," NBPA spokeswoman Tara Greco said. "The union was fully engaged in supporting all three players in court and in the precinct this week, and will continue to stay engaged as each situation evolves." Sefolosha's injury went untreated as he was held in custody, and this is developing into a pretty major story. We'll continue to provide updates as they become available.

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) out Friday vs. ATL
    Lance Stephenson (toe) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: This will be Stephenson's second straight game on the sidelines, and his minutes will be split up between Gerald Henderson, Jeff Taylor, and P.J. Hairston. Henderson is the only one worth owning out of the group, and he'll have plenty of opportunity on offense with Al Jefferson (knee) also sidelined.

  • Alan Anderson (ankle) out Friday vs. WAS
    Alan Anderson (ankle) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: This will be Anderson's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines, and with him unavailable, look for Thaddeus Young to get all the run he can handle with Bojan Bogdanovic getting some extended run. Bojan has been playing well lately, and he's worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues

  • C.J. Watson (elbow) out Friday vs. Detroit
    C.J. Watson (elbow) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Friday will mark Watson's third consecutive game on the sidelines, and with him out Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles will be given a bit more responsibility on offense. Donald Sloan will log some extended minutes as the primary backup point guard for the Pacers, but he's not bringing enough to the stat sheet to be considered a viable option in most leagues.

  • Allen Crabbe scores five in 14 minutes
    Allen Crabbe played 14 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with five points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo (shoulder) went down tonight, so Crabbe could be a candidate to start because C.J. McCollum has really thrived in the second unit. Crabbe would still be very unlikely to see minutes over 24 and his usage rate is going to be tiny, but he's at least on the radar. To be clear, McCollum is a way better pickup.

  • Sefolosha needs surgery on fractured fibula
    Updating a previous report, an X-ray and MRI revealed a fractured fibula and ligament damage in Thabo Sefolosha's right leg, and he will need surgery to correct the injury.

    Advice: "This is a very difficult situation for Thabo and our thoughts and support will be with him during his recovery. We know that his approach and dedication will serve him well in his rehabilitation," Head Coach Mike Budenholzer said. "Our team remains focused and will be prepared as we head into the postseason." Kent Bazemore is going to pick up most of Sefolosha's minutes, but he's not going to see enough floor time as a reserve to matter in standard leagues.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play Friday
    Tony Allen (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Allen is expected to be out through the weekend, and it'll be Courtney Lee, Jeff Green, and Vince Carter picking up the slack in his absence. Green offers the most upside out of the group.

  • Report: Sefolosha diagnosed w/ broken ankle
    Thabo Sefolosha has reportedly been diagnosed with a fractured fibia, and he will miss the rest of the 2014-15 season.

    Advice: Sefolosha suffered the injury during his arrest in New York early Wednesday morning following the stabbing of Chris Copeland and two other women, and he is currently facing charges of resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration, and disorderly conduct. Sefolosha was averaging 18.8 minutes per game for the Hawks, and this is a tough blow for Atlanta as they are losing their defensive specialist off the bench. Kent Bazemore will pick up most of Sefolosha's reserve minutes, but 18 minutes isn't enough floor time for Bazemore to produce in a meaningful way in standard leagues.

  • Devin Harris scores 12 points in 18 minutes
    Devin Harris played 18 minutes off the bench and hit 5-of-9 shots for 12 points and two steals on Wednesday.

    Advice: There's talk of Rajon Rondo resting before the start of the playoffs, so Harris could be a sneaky plug-and-play in a couple of the Mavs' remaining games. Al-Farouq Aminu, J.J. Barea and Richard Jefferson are also candidates to have some big games before the regular season ends, but figuring out exactly when they will happen won't be easy.

  • Tyler Hansbrough double-doubles in 37 minutes
    Tyler Hansbrough played a team-high 37 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with 12 points, 12 boards, and two blocks.

    Advice: Jonas Valanciunas was in foul trouble, so Hansbrough was the main big man tonight. He's playing some of the best ball in his Raptor days with an 18-point, eight-board game coming on Saturday. Amir Johnson will likely miss more time, so give Psycho T a look as long as you're not expecting a line this good.

  • Jared Dudley will start for the Bucks
    Jared Dudley will start for the Bucks against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Interesting. Coach Jason Kidd just said he's looking for a change. Maybe he doesn't want to start Giannis Antetokounmpo against LeBron James or maybe it's something else. Regardless, Dudley is not a reliable option in fantasy leagues tonight.
    Wednesday, 3:33 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (ankle) out for Wednesday
    Thabo Sefolosha suffered an ankle injury during his arrest and will not play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had a bandage on his right ankle, so it doesn't sound serious. There has been no word of the Hawks resting guys just yet, so the team won't miss Sefolosha too much.

  • Lance Stephenson (toe) out Wed., maybe more
    Lance Stephenson (jammed toe) will not play on Wednesday and he may miss more games, according to coach Steve Clifford.

    Advice: Stephenson apparently aggravated an existing injury during an eight-point game on Tuesday, and there's a chance that his season is in jeopardy. His absence thrusts even more minutes toward starters Gerald Henderson and Jeff Taylor. Rookie P.J. Hairston played only seven minutes on Tuesday but he and Brian Roberts may also see their roles expand as the Hornets try to stay relevant in the Eastern Conference playoff chase.

  • Lance Stephenson dealing with a toe injury
    Lance Stephenson is dealing with a jammed toe and his status is unclear for Wednesday against the Raptors.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Tuesday night while playing 20 minutes. We should have another update soon, but the Hornets would have to give more minutes to Jeff Taylor and P.J. Hairston sans Lance.

  • C.J. Watson (elbow) will not play on Wed
    C.J. Watson (elbow) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been dealing with his right elbow injury for several years and he could miss more games going forward. With Watson out, Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Miles and Solomon Hill could get a couple extra minutes.

  • Alan Anderson (ankle) won't play vs. Hawks
    Alan Anderson (ankle) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It'll be his third game out of the lineup and he could miss additional time going forward. The Nets have not been getting anything out of Joe Johnson or Markel Brown lately, so maybe Bojan Bogdanovic gets minutes in the low 30s. Bogey has scored 17.0 points per game in his last two, so he's worth a look in daily leagues or season-long leagues for owners who are feeling frisky. Anderson can be dropped everywhere.

  • Thabo Sefolosha 'charged at an officer' Wed
    Thabo Sefolosha reportedly "charged at an officer" on Wednesday and has been arrested and charged with resisting arrest, obstructing governmental administration and disorderly conduct.

    Advice: These events transpired after Chris Copeland and another woman were brutally attacked by a man wielding a knife, but it's unclear why Thabo Sefolosha and teammate Pero Antic interfered with the crime scene. Sefolosha was seen limping on Wednesday morning, but it's safe to say he won't be taking the court against the Nets tonight. We will pass along further details as soon as we know more. Kent Bazemore will have to step up for the Hawks in Sefolosha's absence.

  • Joel Embiid (foot) will not play this season
    Joel Embiid (foot) is making a lot of progress, but he will not play this season as expected.

    Advice: The 76ers only have four games remaining on their schedule, so nobody should be surprised by this news. Embiid has looked really good in pre-game workouts and has been able to play some 2-on-2 basketball as well. "When you see glimpses of his skill package, you can’t help but say ‘wow,' " head coach Brett Brown said. Embiid is going to be an intriguing prospect in fantasy drafts next year, but he is going to be an injury risk. As always, we will keep a close eye on his recovery and prospective owners should keep tabs on him this summer.

  • Thabo Sefolosha, Pero Antic arrested on Wed
    Thabo Sefolosha and Pero Antic have both been arrested for preventing police from setting up a crime scene at a New York nightclub.

    Advice: Chris Copeland of the Pacers and another woman were stabbed with a knife at that nightclub, but it doesn't make sense why Antic and Sefolosha got involved. The Hawks arrived in New York to face the Nets on Wednesday and the Pacers are playing the Knicks, but it doesn't sound like their chances of playing is too good after this altercation. We will let you know as soon as we uncover more details.
