  • 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
  • Jordan Crawford drops career-high 41
    Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points along with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

    Advice: You could see him having a big game with the Warriors resting the regulars, but this was better than any of us could have imagined. Harrison Barnes chipped in with 30, while Randy Foye scored 32 and had 11 assists for the Nuggets in the loss. The Warriors are healthy, with the exception of Andrew Bogut, and ready to take on the Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. And that, our friends, is a wrap on the 2013-14 regular season.

  • Archie Goodwin busts out with 29 points
    Archie Goodwin busted out for a career-high 29 points vs. the Kings on Wednesday, adding four boards, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer on 11-of-13 from the field in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He made a huge splash in Las Vegas Summer League, but he was extremely quiet until tonight. If not for Gerald Green making a strong case for Most Improved Player, we might have seen more of Goodwin. He's a plus defender and showed tonight that he can really get to the rim. His jumper needs work and he's unlikely to be a target in fantasy drafts next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Barton w/ career night, Blazers starters sit
    Will Barton came off the bench for a career-high 23 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers on 7-of-20 shooting.

    Advice: Robin Lopez led the starters in minutes with just 14 of them tonight, but still managed 15 points and nine rebounds, while LaMarcus Aldridge took the entire night off. The Blazers are healthy and ready for their first-round match up against the Warriors, so don't let tonight's strange box score fool you. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben McLemore scores career-high 31 points
    Ben McLemore ended his season with a bang on Wednesday during a 104-99 loss to the Suns, scoring a career-high 31 points with five boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 19 points on Sunday and figured out how to get his own shot to close the season. McLemore's off-the-ball game needed some work throughout the year and his isolation game was non-existent for much of the season, but he showed some promise. Still, the sample size is too small to make him a target in drafts next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Caldwell-Pope scores career-high 30 in loss
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit five 3-pointers and had a career-high 30 points and six rebounds in Wednesday's tough loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: They were just hoping to play spoiler, but it wasn't meant to be. KCP was great, while Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond each had 22, and Kyle Singler had 20 to round out the double-digit scoring for the Pistons tonight. 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
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will start
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will start on Wednesday night vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Rodney Stuckey moves to the bench as the Pistons shake things up a bit. Caldwell-Pope's rookie season has been a bit of a letdown and he'll have to learn how to do things outside of shooting to be a better player. Rotoworld.com
  • Austin Rivers is starting on Wednesday
    Austin Rivers is starting on Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Brian Roberts (ankle) is a game-time call and could sit, so we'll be looking for an update on that front. Rivers joins Tyreke Evans, Alexis Ajinca, Jeff Withey and Darius Miller in the first unit. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson expected to play Wed.
    Alan Anderson is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had an ab injury over the weekend, but coach Jason Kidd said Anderson will play "very little." With Paul Pierce out, expect Marcus Thornton to get a lot of shots. Rotoworld.com

  • Carrick Felix is available to play
    Carrick Felix is available to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out since January due to a stress fracture in his knee and this is a surprise. Felix likes to get his buckets in transition and had a decent offseason, but he has a lot of growing to do. He's no lock to play tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerryd Bayless will not play on Wednesday
    Jerryd Bayless (knee) will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: There is nothing structurally wrong with Bayless' knee, but this injury has cost him the final three games of the season. He'll head into the summer as a free agent and will likely have less value than he did this season. Expect Phil Pressey and Avery Bradley to carry the load in the backcourt. Rotoworld.com

  • Kent Bazemore has surgery on Wednesday
    Kent Bazemore underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair the torn peroneus longus tendon in his right foot.

    Advice: He's expected to make a full recovery and be ready for the 2014-15 opener. It's unclear what his offseason plan is yet, but Bazemore was electric at Las Vegas Summer League last offseason and could wind up there again. His fantasy value figures to take a hit on a team with a full complement of players. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • C.J. Miles (ankle) out for Cavs' final game
    C.J. Miles (ankle) will not play in the Cavaliers' season finale.

    Advice: Miles hasn't played since mid-February and his absence is no surprise. He's heading into free agency and the Cavaliers have expressed an interest in re-signing him, as his 39.3 percent shooting from downtown this season gives him consistent appeal as a perimeter specialist.

  • Alan Anderson ruled out for Tuesday
    Alan Anderson will miss another game on Tuesday due to his abdominal injury.

    Advice: He has now missed three in a row, but we're still guessing he'll be ready to go when the playoffs start. 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

  • Crawford could see a bump in minutes on Wed
    Jordan Crawford scored just three points in seven minutes on Monday, but could see a bump in minutes now that the Warriors have clinched the No. 6 spot in the West.

    Advice: Mark Jackson said that a lot of guys could rest on Wednesday and Crawford fits the description of a season finale special. He comes with no guarantees, but he fits the profile of a high-upside guy that owners may want to reach for. Steve Blake could also get some extra run, though at his age the Dubs may decide not to run him quite as hard. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers gets tossed on Monday
    Austin Rivers was ejected from Monday's game for an altercation with Nick Collison.

    Advice: A fight was close to breaking out, but it did seem a bit extreme to toss Rivers from this game. He finished with eight points, two assists and two 3-pointers in 14 minutes. The Pelicans will shift Tyreke Evans over to point guard because what else are they going to do with their decimated roster? Rotoworld.com

  • Kent Bazemore will have surgery on Wednesday
    Kent Bazemore will have surgery on his torn tendon in his right foot in Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a torn peroneus longus tendon and was ruled out for the season last week. Bazemore's role with the Lakers is unclear, but he's unlikely to be a key part of the rotation once the team is back to full strength. He's a lot of fun to watch, but his careless style will likely hurt his allotment of playing time. 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
  • Jerryd Bayless unlikely to play this season
    Jerryd Bayless (knee) is unlikely to play against the Wizards on Wednesday, according to coach Brad Stevens.

    Advice: He was ruled out for Monday's game very early and his knee injury from Friday has already cost him one game. Bayless was brought on the team more for his contract, but he played fairly well in his 41 games with the Celtics. Avery Bradley and Phil Pressey will get some extra run. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:50 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (knee) doesn't travel to PHI
    Jerryd Bayless (knee) didn't travel with the Celtics for Monday's game in Philly.

    Advice: Bayless was recently scheduled to have an MRI but the test results haven't been announced, and for now we're considering him questionable to return on Wednesday. Avery Bradley will continue to dominate minutes at SG in his absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben McLemore drops 19 points vs. Timberwolves
    Kings rookie Ben McLemore scored 19 points on 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with three 3-pointers on Sunday, marking his second-highest scoring total of the season.

    Advice: His 39 minutes were second only to Derrick Williams and it's encouraging to see him catch fire from the field, since his 37.0 percent shooting is a glaring problem for a 'shooting guard'. He was the No. 7 pick in the 2013 draft and the Kings have played him 26 minutes per game as a rookie, so he should get no lack of opportunities during his sophomore season. Rotoworld.com
