  • Marcus Thornton scores 24 in loss to NY
    Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 24 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: Whether the Nets play the regulars or not on Wednesday, Thornton should get a lot of minutes and should have another nice game. Rotoworld.com
  • Joe Johnson scores 12 despite sore calf
    Joe Johnson played through a sore calf on Tuesday and had 12 points, six rebounds, and four assists in 31 minutes, hitting just 3-of-9 shots.

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

    Advice: The Nets needed to win this game and may be ready to give up on Wednesday's finale. Jason Kidd said after the game he doesn't care if he's the No. 5 or 6 seed, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Pierce get the night off. He was a game-time decision tonight, but he went for it. Rotoworld.com

  • Tim Hardaway Jr. leads Knicks with 16 points
    Tim Hardaway Jr. hit 5-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, and no other relevant stats on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Knicks are going to likely rest the old guys on Wednesday, making Hardaway look like a solid option for the finale. Rotoworld.com
  • Joe Johnson (calf) will play vs. Knicks
    Joe Johnson will play on Tuesday despite a minor calf injury.

    Advice: Johnson isn't worth the $48 million he'll earn over the next two seasons, but he's averaging a solid 15.8 points, 2.1 threes, 3.4 rebounds and 2.7 assists during an All-Star season in Brooklyn. Regardless of how he looks on Tuesday, fantasy owners should consider him a DNP risk in Wednesday's finale. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:32 pm
  • Mo Williams may be rested on Wednesday
    Mo Williams may be rested on Wednesday, as the Blazers gear up for their first-round matchup with the Rockets.

    Advice: Williams recently returned from a knee injury and a maintenance day makes perfect sense for the 11-year veteran. Williams has averaged 24.8 minutes off the bench this season, while no other reserve has averaged more than Dorell Wright's 14.5 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:54 pm
  • Gerald Green will start Wednesday's finale
    Gerald Green will start Wednesday's game in place of Goran Dragic (ankle).

    Advice: Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said that he'll use his typical starting lineup for Wednesday's season finale, minus Dragic, though his youngest players will enter the game "pretty early." Green revitalized his career in Phoenix, averaging 15.8 points and 2.5 threes per game, and he'll look to build on his success during the final year of his contract in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:27 pm
  • Goran Dragic (ankle) won't play on Wednesday
    Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play in the Suns' season finale on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dragic has been playing on an injured ankle for the past few games and he was a DNP candidate the moment the Suns were eliminated from the playoffs on Monday. He'll finish the season with numerous career-highs, averaging 20.3 points on 50.5 percent shooting, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:22 pm
  • Lance Stephenson (rest) won't play vs. Magic
    Lance Stephenson (rest) will not play vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: Stephenson is fresh off Sunday's triple-double, during which he played with uncommon energy, so perhaps coach Frank Vogel's prescribed rest is doing the trick. Fantasy owners should note that despite Stephenson's occasional triple-doubles and impressive rebounding totals, his limited defensive stats (0.7 steals), poor FT percentage (71.1 percent) and high turnovers (2.7 per game) conspired to make him a 10th-round value in nine-cat leagues this season. He fares better in eight-cat and head-to-head formats. Rotoworld.com
  • Paul George, West, Stephenson out Wednesday
    Paul George, David West, Lance Stephenson and C.J. Watson will all rest during Wednesday's season finale vs. the Magic.

    Advice: With the first seed in the East locked up, the Pacers are just trying to give their key players some rest while hoping to reclaim the elusive chemistry that abandoned them after the All-Star break. After shooting a mere 37.2 percent from the field in March, George is still stuck at 40.2 percent in April. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:30 am
  • George Hill will play vs. Magic on Wednesday
    The Pacers will not rest George Hill on Wednesday, though he may not play the entire game.

    Advice: Hill is averaging 3.5 assists this season, which have created an average of 11.8 points per 48 minutes for the Pacers. That ranks him 112th among qualifying players, sandwiched between Evan Turner and Marc Gasol. It's a paltry mark for a starting point guard, though in fairness the Pacers' offense doesn't give him many opportunities. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:27 am
  • Joe Johnson a game-time decison
    Joe Johnson (calf) is a game-time decision for Tuesday.

    Advice: He could be out in order to rest for the playoffs and it looks like Marcus Thornton is going to see a lot of minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:55 am
  • Pierce, Johnson, Williams all GTD for Nets
    Paul Pierce (shoulder), Joe Johnson and Deron Williams are all listed as game-time decisions for the Nets on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's anyone's guess as to who might play for either the Nets or Knicks tonight, but guys like Marquis Teague, Marcus Thornton and Mason Plumlee are good bets for success. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:52 am
  • 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
    Today, 7:36 am
  • Curry, Warriors lock up No. 6 seed with win
    Stephen Curry was his normal dynamic self in the Warriors' 130-120 win over the Wolves on Monday, scoring 32 points on 10-of-21 shooting (including seven threes) with five rebounds, 15 assists and three steals as the Dubs clinched the No. 6 seed in the West.

    Advice: The Warriors have nothing to play for on Wednesday and Curry is certainly a candidate for a game off, but we won't know for sure until the team makes an announcement. He has locked up the No. 2 ranking in 8-cat leagues and is in a virtual dead heat with LeBron James for the No. 2 ranking in 9-cat formats. Tonight he made more shots that would be career-moments for other players, but in Steph's world they'll go down as just another Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • Brewer scores 22 points with five assists
    Corey Brewer decided his run wasn't over in Monday's loss to the Warriors, scoring 22 points on 10-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 41 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer's favorable schedule and big games have made him a nice pickup over the last week or two, and there's no reason the Wolves won't run him hard on Wednesday. If his stat set fits your needs, he's a solid pickup. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Dragic guts it out; PHO knocked from playoffs
    Goran Dragic (ankle) played in the Suns' 97-91 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and five steals in 37 minutes.

    Advice: We're going to put Dragic on the injury report after the Suns were knocked out of the playoffs with the loss, as he's on the shortlist of NBA players most deserving of an early rest. Eric Bledsoe added 13 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and a three, and the loss closes the book on one of the league's better stories of the season. Everybody thought the Suns were going to be tank, but instead they improved the franchise at every level. Now it's on Robert Sarver not to mess it up. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Miller scores 21 points with five threes
    Mike Miller scored 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting (including five threes) in 30 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Miller is well worth a look for his 3-point shooting as the Grizzlies and Mavs will face off on Wednesday in a meaningful game. And shockingly, after a career full of injuries, Miller has played in all 81 games for the Grizzlies this season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Goran Dragic will play through ankle soreness
    Coach Jeff Hornacek said on Monday that Goran Dragic's ankle is still sore but "he's going to play no matter how it feels at this point."

    Advice: He definitely wasn't at his best in Saturday's tough loss and he won't be 100 percent in Monday's enormous game against the Grizzlies in Phoenix. The Suns will need to win tonight, win on Wednesday and need the Grizzlies to lose on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks. If the Suns don't get it done tonight, there's a good chance Dragic sits out on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:18 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 47 points in OT defeat
    Stephen Curry exploded for 47 points in a dramatic 117-119 overtime loss to the Blazers on Sunday, sinking 16-of-29 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs with seven 3-pointers.

    Advice: "We're going to play to get the best possible seed available," said coach Mark Jackson. "When we can no longer move up, it'll be a different story." The Warriors have two games remaining against non-playoff teams, on Monday and Wednesday, but they can still move down the standings with the seventh-seed Mavericks nipping at their heels. Anyone relying on the Warriors for fantasy production should keep a close watch on Rotoworld's player news page. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:15 pm
  • Corey Brewer cools off w/ 10 pts in road loss
    Corey Brewer followed up his 51-point eruption with just 10 points in 30 minutes as the Wolves lost a close game in Sacramento on Sunday.

    Advice: Nobody was expecting a repeat performance of Friday, and the return of Kevin Martin and Kevin Love cut into his offensive opportunities, but this still qualifies as a major disappointment. Brewer is averaging 12.2 points in 32 minutes per game this season, on an up-tempo team that favors his style of play, so he's unlikely to be any better in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:47 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 20 points off bench
    Knicks rookie Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 20 points off the bench on Sunday, making 5-of-12 field goals and 8-of-8 free throws with two 3-pointers.

    Advice: With their playoff hopes dashed the Knicks will begin giving more playing time to their young guys in the final few games, according to coach Mike Woodson. "You gotta start thinking about the younger players," he said before Sunday's game. Hardaway Jr. stands to gain the most, but guys like Toure' Murry, Jeremy Tyler and Cole Aldrich should also benefit from the Knicks' late-season youth movement. Rotoworld.com
  • Paul Pierce held to 19 minutes vs. Orlando
    Paul Pierce only played 19 minutes vs. the Magic on Sunday, scoring 10 points with five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Advice: He was productive enough to appease most owners and Jason Kidd was probably just giving his veteran some extra rest vs. an inferior opponent. Pierce's switch to power forward, and his ability to play the position defensively, has been a major catalyst for the Nets' resurgence this season. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:29 pm
  • Lance Stephenson triple-doubles in huge win
    Lance Stephenson put up a triple-double against the Thunder in Sunday's 102-97 win, scoring 17 points with 10 boards, 11 assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

    Advice: He brought a ton of energy while most of his team continues to play a boring brand of basketball. Stephenson now leads the NBA with five triple-doubles, which is one greater than the four from Stephen Curry and Joakim Noah. He hasn't been the same player since the break with his assists and field goal percentage taking the biggest hits on the stat sheet, but he's still fun to watch. The Pacers will look to lock up the top seed in the Eastern Conference with a win against the Magic on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
  • George Hill gets in foul trouble on Sunday
    George Hill scored three points in 23 minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday with two assists and four fouls.

    Advice: A lot of players get into foul trouble against the Thunder and Hill couldn't find a rhythm. He's had plenty of bumps in the road all season, but scoring just three points in his last two games since resting on Wednesday is one of his lowest lows. He'll look to turn it around in the season finale on Wednesday in an important game. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:20 pm
  • Goran Dragic struggles in return from injury
    Goran Dragic played through an ankle injury on Saturday, but wasn't great, hitting just 6-of-18 shots and zero 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal.

    Advice: He was having his way against Jose Calderon, but It was the Eric Bledsoe show tonight, as he had 29 points in a tough loss. Look for Dragic to continue to try to play through his injury, as the Suns are in a dogfight with Memphis for the final playoff spot. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:53 pm
  • Goran Dragic (ankle) will start vs. Mavs
    Goran Dragic (ankle) will start vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

    Advice: He has been receiving a ton of treatment to get ready for this game and he's certainly not 100 percent. Dragic was getting ice on his ankle during warmups, so he might not be able to play his normal playing time. This game is huge for the Suns and coach Jeff Hornacek will basically have a full arsenal at his disposal. Gerald Green should still get plenty of run on the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:33 pm
  • Shaun Livingston (toe) will not play vs. ORL
    Shaun Livingston (toe) has been ruled out of Sunday's game, according to coach Jason Kidd.

    Advice: This makes three DNPs for Livingston, who has a sore big toe, and with Alan Anderson (abs) also sidelined the Nets may once again start Andrei Kirilenko at SF and Joe Johnson at SG. Livingston should be considered questionable for Brooklyn's final back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday, but he did say that he's feeling better and aiming to return before the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:59 am
  • Report: Goran Dragic (ankle) may return Sat.
    Goran Dragic (ankle) is expected to return vs. the Mavericks on Saturday, according to beat writer Paul Coro.

    Advice: Owners should check back for official confirmation after the Suns warm up in Dallas, but it appears Dragic will be ready to play following a one-game absence. If he does suit up, Gerald Green will shift back to a smaller role off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:03 am
  • Curry triple-doubles against defenseless LAL
    Stephen Curry triple-doubled for the fourth time this year in Friday's easy win against the Lakers, scoring 30 points on 12-of-20 shooting (including four threes) with 10 rebounds, 12 assists and two steals.

    Advice: Putting Curry on the floor against this Lakers squad isn't fair and the Warriors were able to clinch a playoff spot tonight. Klay Thompson added 16 points, two threes, three boards, four assists and a block in the win. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:48 pm
  • George Hill returned to action on Friday April 11. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:27 pm
  • Mo Williams returns to action on Friday
    Mo Williams (knee) returned to action on Friday, scoring four points on 1-of-7 shooting with zero rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Unless the Blazers start resting guys, then Williams is just a low-end asset in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:59 pm
  • Gerald Green scores 27 points vs. Spurs
    Gerald Green moved back into the starting lineup against the Spurs in Friday, scoring 27 points with three boards, three assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Goran Dragic sat out tonight due to an ankle injury, but Green has been rolling even before this gem. He's been in NBA Jam on-fire mode from deep in his last four games with at least four triples in each game in that span. Green averaged 26.0 points per game in that span and he'll be a must-start player on Saturday vs. the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:33 pm
  • Corey Brewer shocks Rockets with 51 points
    Corey Brewer came out of nowhere for a career-high 51 points on 19-of-30 from the field in a win over the Rockets on Friday, adding two boards, one assist, six steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer joined Michael Jordan, Ricky Barry and Allen Iverson as the only players to score at least 50 points with six steals in a game in NBA history. He scored an unbelievable 16 of his 19 field goals from within three feet of the rim and was the main reason why the Wolves had a whopping 39 fast-break points with 27 transition points coming from Brew. Coach Rick Adelman joked after the game that Kevin Love (elbow) and Kevin Martin (foot) have been holding Brewer back and he said he didn't even know what to do with him. Brewer also has four consecutive games with four or more steals, but we don't think he'll have a streak of scoring 50 points or anything. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:34 pm
  • Stephenson scores 11 points against Heat
    Lance Stephenson and the rest of the Pacers' starters all returned to action in Friday's big loss to the Heat, and Stephenson took a back seat scoring 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one three.

    Advice: Stephenson turned the ball over four times and Paul George did the same, but the duo were the only creators whatsoever out of the first unit so it's hard to lay the blame at their feet. The good news for owners is that he doesn't appear to be tired or out of shape like some of his teammates, so it's possible he avoids any other time off doled out by Frank Vogel. Rotoworld.com
  • Hill doesn't shoot the ball once in loss
    George Hill might as well have bought a ticket to Friday's one-sided loss to the Heat, posting just four assists and two turnovers without taking a single shot in a whopping 33 minutes.

    Advice: We're not sure how Frank Vogel is going to handle this back-breaking loss but C.J. Watson (10 points, one assist, 19 minutes) is at least willing to compete. Watson is coming off a longer-term injury and it's unclear how many minutes he could theoretically handle, but the Pacers have to look at any and all options as their collapse has reached historic proportions. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:25 pm
  • George scores 22 points in loss to Heat
    Paul George scored 22 points on 7-of-17 shooting (3-of-8 3PTs, 5-of-7 FTs) with five rebounds, five assists and two steals in Friday's loss.

    Advice: George was the best player on the floor for Indy but still lacked the edge necessary to lead a championship level team. As of right now there are no plans for any additional rest, and we will update you if that changes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:20 pm
  • Johnson a candidate for rest for the Nets
    Joe Johnson scored nine points on 4-of-15 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in the Nets' 93-88 loss to the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Johnson has been on a roll lately but owners should know that he's a candidate for rest down the stretch. We'll let you know if anything comes through the pipeline regarding his status but for now he can stay in lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:42 pm
  • Pierce (hip) returns, passes 25K career pts
    Paul Pierce (hip) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Hawks, scoring 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Pierce also passed 25,000 points in his Hall of Fame career, and with the chance to rest looming it wouldn't be surprising if he missed any number of games to finish the year. We're not going to put him on the injury report until we hear something specific to that effect, but owners should be looking at other options. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:35 pm
  • Thornton gets off 17 shots in loss to Hawks
    Marcus Thornton scored 14 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 6-of-17 shots (including two threes) with two rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Thornton could be lined up to carry some offensive load for the Nets, who have the five-seed locked up and already said that they'll be resting guys. He might shoot you out of a field goal percentage battle, but he has very good upside right now and is worth an add in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
  • Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play vs. Spurs
    Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: As far as the playoff picture goes, this is easily the biggest news of the day. Dragic has played like an All-Star all season and the Suns really need this game, which just got even tougher with Tony Parker returning. Gerald Green will get the start and have a major opportunity to post a big line next to Eric Bledsoe. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:21 pm
  • Paul Pierce back in the starting lineup
    Paul Pierce (hip) will start against the Hawks on Friday night.

    Advice: He'll join Jorge Gutierrez, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson and Kevin Garnett in the first unit. Pierce had his turn to rest on Wednesday night and we would expect him to play without limitation. Considering Deron Williams (knee) is out, Pierce could have the ball in his hands a lot. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:18 pm
  • Goran Dragic downgraded to doubtful for Fri.
    Goran Dragic has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Spurs due to a sprained left ankle.

    Advice: Ouch. The Suns have huge game tonight for their playoff chances and they look like they'll be without their best player. Dragic said his ankle is getting better and mentioned he will play if his ankle allows it. He has sprained his left ankle three times this season and has been getting treatment twice per day while also sleeping with an electronic stimulation machine on Thursday night. If all this effort still keeps him out, Gerald Green will start and become a must-play fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:40 pm
  • Mo Williams will return Friday night vs. Jazz
    Mo Williams will return to the lineup on Friday night vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: He was rested on Wednesday night and it may have been due to a knee injury which was a small issue back in March. The Blazers played their starters at least 37 minutes each on Wednesday, so Mo getting back in the lineup should help them a bit. Williams is a lukewarm fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:10 am
  • Paul Pierce expected to play Friday
    Paul Pierce (hip) is expected to return for Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: Pierce and the rest of the Nets' elderly players will go through warmups before any final decision is made, but it's looking like Shaun Livingston (toe) is the only one that will sit out. It suggests that Pierce's hip is feeling near 100 percent as he wouldn't be risking anything this close to the playoffs. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:39 am
  • Shaun Livingston still out with sprained toe
    Shaun Livingston (toe) will not play in Friday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: Livingston also missed Wednesday's loss to the Magic and his status for the rest of the regular season is unclear. Coach Jason Kidd said that he expects everyone else to play, meaning a likely starting five of Deron Williams, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:34 am
  • Pacers won't rest anyone against Heat Friday
    Coach Frank Vogel plans to return to his full lineup for Friday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Vogel decided to give his entire starting five the night off on Wednesday and the Pacers still beat the Bucks. But the entire team went through practice on Thursday and the starters reportedly showed fresher legs. Now they'll be at full strength as they try to hold off Miami (half-game behind) for the East's No. 1 seed. That means George Hill, Lance Stephenson, Paul George, David West and Roy Hibbert will start and play their usual minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:22 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 24 points vs. Nuggets
    Stephen Curry made 8-of-19 from the field against the Nuggets on Thursday, scoring 24 points with seven boards, six assists, four steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: The Warriors could have clinched a playoff spot tonight and they missed a golden opportunity against an extremely banged up team. Curry has been hot over his previous 10 with averages of 25.4 points, 3.1 boards, 7.6 dimes, 1.2 steals and 3.5 triples. He has first-round value since the break and will be an early pick in drafts next year again. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:53 pm
  • Goran Dragic (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Goran Dragic is questionable to play on Friday due to a sprained left ankle.

    Advice: "I think [Dragic] will want to play," said coach Jeff Hornacek. "It'll be a question with him, 'Do you think you can go and go hard or is it going to aggravate it more?'" The Suns play the Spurs on Friday before a crucial matchup with the Mavericks on Saturday, a back-to-back set which may determine the Suns' playoff fate, and Dragic's injury comes at a very inopportune time. He will not participate in Friday's shootaround and if he can't start Gerald Green will take over at SG with Eric Bledsoe at PG. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:20 pm
  • Warriors in playoffs if they beat Denver
    The Warriors will qualify for the playoffs if they beat Denver on Thursday night.

    Advice: The Warriors should have a very good shot at getting in even if they don't win tonight, but there's little doubt they'll try to wrap things up tonight. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson should have big games, while Andre Iguodala and Andrew Bogut will also leave it all on the court. It doesn't sound like David Lee is likely to play with his hamstring injury, making Draymond Green a sneaky play once again. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:00 am
  • Joe Johnson now playing at All-Star level
    Joe Johnson scored 31 points on Wednesday, scored six points in the final minute and 11 points inside of the game's last three and a half minutes.

    Advice: He's become the Nets' go-to guy in the fourth quarter and had a potential game-winning 3-pointer blocked by Kyle O'Quinn last night. Since March 1, Johnson is averaging 18.1 points on 50.8 percent shooting. His strong play since the All-Star break actually makes his selection to the team look better in hindsight. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:16 am
