  • Raymond Felton returned to action on Tuesday April 15. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:54 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • J.J. Redick to be held out Wednesday
    J.J. Redick had 18 points and four 3-pointers in just 17 minutes, and will take the night off on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jamal Crawford and Darren Collison should pick up his slack, but they could probably use some rest as well. It's probably best to avoid the Clippers' shooting guards in fantasy on Wednesday. Collison had 10 points in 24 minutes on Tuesday, while Crawford hit 3-of-9 shots and zero 3-pointers for nine points in 31 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Chris Paul Mr. Efficiency again Tuesday
    Chris Paul hit 8-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points and 10 assists in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Wow. He's primed and ready to go for the playoffs, and the Clippers are going to be a tough out all the way, and could win it all. Paul's status for Wednesday is up in the air, as their game may not mean anything if the Thunder beat the Pistons early on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:46 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores seven on Tuesday
    Wilson Chandler played through his groin injury on Tuesday and had seven points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer on 3-of-7 shooting.

    Advice: If he's not 100 percent, it's easy to see him sitting out in Wednesday's finale, and Evan Fournier (9 points on 3-of-10 shooting) could step up if Chandler is out. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Randy Foye hits just 2-of-12 shots
    Randy Foye hit just 2-of-12 shots and was 0-for-7 from downtown for 11 points, four rebounds, seven assists and four steals in a loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Had his shot been falling he would have had a monster line, but as it was, he was still effective at filling the stat sheet. Foye should play solid minutes again on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:28 pm
  • Aaron Brooks scores 19 in loss
    Aaron Brooks had 19 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss.

    Advice: He's been great filling in for Ty Lawson and all indications are that he'll get serious minutes again in Wednesday's finale. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:26 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Quincy Miller scores 11 in loss
    Quincy Miller had 11 points, four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

    Advice: The Nuggets have nothing to play for and there's no reason Miller won't see heavy minutes and another start in Wednesday's finale against the Warriors. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Kenneth Faried with 21 & 6 in loss
    Kenneth Faried had 21 points and six rebounds on 7-of-12 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: The Nuggets have nothing to play for, but Faried is hot and may want to go out on a high note against the Warriors on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:20 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:43 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:32 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Deron Williams scores 10 points in loss
    Deron Williams played through a sore knee but had just 10 points, one assist and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: The Nets wanted to win this game, but may be ready to concede on Wednesday night in order to get their old guys some rest. If you own Deron Williams, watch for updates on Wednesday to find out if he's in or out of the lineup at Cleveland. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:26 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
    Yesterday, 8:24 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Bucks sign F Chris Wright to multi-year deal
    Bucks sign F Chris Wright to multi-year contract on Tuesday.

    Advice: He must have made an impression in his two 10-day contracts to end the season, but he's nothing more than bench fodder for next season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:40 pm
  • Josh Powell signed by Rockets
    Big man Josh Powell passed his physical and was signed by the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He'll give them a little depth in the playoffs, but that's about it. Rotoworld.com

  • Redick, other Clips starters all in Tuesday
    J.J. Redick will start along with the other Clippers regulars on Tuesday, but Doc Rivers says he won't play on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Clippers want to win out and hope the Clippers lose again to get the No. 2 seed, but it's still a long shot. It sounds like all systems go for the Clippers tonight, so play them as you normally would. All bets are off for Wednesday, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:04 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) has torn labrum
    Carmelo Anthony has been diagnosed with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, but he will not require surgery.

    Advice: Melo will be re-evaluated in one month and it's very interesting that an MRI revealed the tear only after he'd played in a number of games to help the Knicks' slim chances of making the playoffs. While his toughness is commendable, the Knicks' medical staff and management have questions to answer about letting their star risk aggravating a serious injury. Carmelo is expected to enter free agency via his early-termination option, and once the playoffs end he'll be the focus of this summer's FA frenzy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:44 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 3:32 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) active Tuesday vs. NYK
    Deron Williams (knee) will play vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

    Advice: D-Will has been dealing with tendinitis in his right knee and it wouldn't be surprising to see him rest during Wednesday's game, as the Nets aren't likely to take risks with their oft-injured PG. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:29 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
    Yesterday, 1:54 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
    Yesterday, 1:22 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 11:30 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:35 am
  • Woodson: Melo 'probably won't play' Tuesday
    Mike Woodson said on Tuesday morning that Carmelo Anthony "probably won't" play against the Nets, and that he will likely shut him down for Wednesday, as well.

    Advice: TNT is getting a dog of a game, as Amare Stoudemire is a game-time decision, while the Nets will be without Shaun Livingston, Mirza Teletovic and Alan Anderson, and also list Deron Williams, Paul Pierce and Joe Johnson as game-time calls. It would take a small miracle to see Melo in uniform at this point, as he deals with a lost season, a sore shoulder and pending free agency. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:15 am
  • Deron Williams a game-time call
    Deron Williams (right knee) is listed as a game-time decision on Tuesday.

    Advice: If he's out due to playoff-prep rest, Marquis Teague would get the start at point guard. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:56 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
    Yesterday, 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
    Yesterday, 7:52 am
  • 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
    Yesterday, 7:39 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

  • Carmelo Anthony misses shootaround
    Carmelo Anthony missed shootaround on Tuesday in order to have his right shoulder re-examined.

    Advice: He's listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Nets on TNT, but it would be fairly surprising to see him play. J.R. Smith might take 50 shots tonight, while it's possible Melo has played his last game for the New York Knicks. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Monday, 10:35 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. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:00 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. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:05 pm
  • Wilson Chandler traveling, expected to play
    Wilson Chandler is traveling with the team and is expected to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It was a surprise to see him in the lineup on Saturday, but he did leave the game with another injury and did not return. Chandler is likely looking at a game-time call and we probably won't know much until Tuesday night. There are only two games on Tuesday, so owners in daily leagues certainly should gamble on Chandler. Evan Fournier takes a hit. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:35 pm
  • Josh Powell planning to sign with Rockets
    The Rockets plan to sign Josh Powell for the rest of the season.

    Advice: The Rockets are looking to add another big man and would probably be best suited to get a player out of the NBA so he can be eligible for the playoffs. Powell has been out of the league since 2010-11 and has played on five teams since 2005-06. The 31-year-old big man was cut by the Knicks in training camp. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Monday, 11:18 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:24 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) may have MRI
    Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) said that he may have an MRI in the next few days, and he'll consult with Knicks' doctors about a plan for the final two games.

    Advice: The surprising part is that he hasn't already had an MRI given the uncertain nature of the injury, which has been described as a "strain" and a "dead arm." With potential free agency looming it's conceivable that caution will keep Melo on the sidelines the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:53 pm
  • Raymond Felton plays through sprained ankle
    Raymond Felton injured his right ankle during Sunday's game, though he played through it to score 14 points with seven assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He landed on D.J. Augustin's foot and there's a good chance the injury will swell up overnight, so we'll include him on the injury report as a precaution. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:14 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) logs 28 minutes
    Carmelo Anthony's shoulder injury didn't give him too much trouble vs. the Bulls, as he scored 17 on 7-of-13 shooting in 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Knicks have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, but coach Mike Woodson expects Melo to play in every game down the stretch. "He hasn't indicated to me that he's going to sit down," Woodson said. "That's Melo's. He's been there all year, he's had a helluva season for us." That's somewhat of an understatement, as he's second in the league in scoring at 27.6 points per game. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:07 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) looks great in return
    Deron Williams (knee) returned on Sunday, as expected, and scored 16 points with four 3-pointers, five assists and four steals in a nine-point win vs. Orlando.

    Advice: D-Will played a game-high 35 minutes and his knee didn't seem to bother him, but we'll monitor his status as a precaution for Tuesday's home game vs. the Knicks. Joe Johnson added 17 points with three 3-pointers of his own in the victory. 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
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    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. Rotoworld.com
    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. Rotoworld.com
  • Wilson Chandler scores nine, but leaves game
    Wilson Chandler hit 3-of-7 shots for nine points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday in his return from a groin injury, but left the game and didn't return.

    Advice: Not only did he leave the game, but he also left the bench and went to the locker room, presumably for treatment on his groin. And with nothing left to play for, signs are pointing to Chandler's season being over. Evan Fournier and Randy Foye look like strong plays the rest of the way, if that's the case. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:50 pm
  • Randy Foye stays hot with 26 points in win
    Randy Foye hit 7-of-13 shots and three more 3-pointers for 26 points, four rebounds and six assists in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

    Advice: Foye is tracking Dale Ellis for the franchise record of 192 3-pointers made, and currently sits at 186. He'll have to play well over Denver's final two games to catch Ellis, but the record is well within reach and Foye will keep firing away in hopes of catching him, making him an excellent fantasy option down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:45 pm
  • Aaron Brooks struggles in another start
    Aaron Brooks hit just 3-of-13 shots for eight points, three rebounds, five assists, a steal and zero 3-pointers in Saturday's win over the Jazz.

    Advice: Brooks has really cooled off recently, scoring no more than 13 points in four of his last five games. And the fact the Nuggets keep suggesting that Ty Lawson could return to finish out the season doesn't work in his favor. But any time that Lawson is out, Brooks is still a solid fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:39 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:36 pm
  • Kenneth Faried goes for 24 & 21 in win
    Kenneth Faried turned the tables and roasted the Jazz for 24 points, 21 rebounds, five assists and six turnovers on 11-of-19 shooting in Saturday's win.

    Advice: The Nuggets are constantly abused by opposing bigs (Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors both double-doubled tonight for the Jezz), but Faried went nuts in this one, recording the first 20-20 game of his career. Timofey Mozgov, who had a monster game on Thursday, gave way to Faried tonight, as Mozzy finished with 11 points and 10 rebounds. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:34 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

  • Melo, Knicks eliminated from playoffs
    Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday when the Hawks beat the Heat in Atlanta.

    Advice: The shutdown alert is on for Melo, who is dealing with a sore shoulder. If the Knicks still had something to play for, Melo would be a lock to go, but at this point, you have to think his status for his final two games is completely up in the air. Only use him if you know for a fact that he'll be in the lineup on Sunday and Wednesday. This is the first time in his 11-year career Melo won't be in the playoffs, but at least we know he won't have to worry about being knocked out in the first round again. Rotoworld.com

  • Surprise: Wilson Chandler available to play
    Wilson Chandler (groin) is available to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: There has been very little information on Chandler for the past week, so this is a huge surprise. There's been even less detail as how he's looked in practice, so we'd guess he's going to be limited tonight. Unless you're cutting someone with little value, we'd probably to see how Chandler looks tonight before making a move to add him. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:11 pm
  • J.J. Redick, Matt Barnes combine for 25 pts
    J.J. Redick scored 13 points in 32 minutes as the Clippers sailed past the Kings on Saturday, while Matt Barnes added 12 points in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Both guys will retain their starting jobs with Jamal Crawford (calf) back in action, though their playing time and shot attempts may dip given Crawford's prolific abilities as a sixth-man. With only two games left on the schedule, it shouldn't matter very much for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:09 pm
  • Deron Williams (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Deron Williams (knee) is expected to return vs. the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: Jason Kidd said that Shaun Livingston (toe) and Alan Anderson (abdomen) are the only unavailable players, so presumably D-Will practiced on Saturday without any problems. Cautious owners should confirm his status after Sunday's shootaround. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:01 am
  • 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.

  • Alan Anderson (abdomen) will not play Sunday
    Alan Anderson (sore abdominal muscle) will not play in Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: He was a late scratch on Friday after the injury bothered him during warm-ups, which left Brooklyn without Anderson, Deron Williams (knee) and Shaun Livingston (toe). The result was the Nets' first loss in their past 16 home games, and they'll try to get back on track with Williams expected to return on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:55 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
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) avoiding tests
    Carmelo Anthony said that he might have more tests on his shoulder after the season, but he doesn't believe that it's as serious as the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered last year.

    Advice: "This year it's not the same. The pain is different," Anthony said. "What is the test going to do at this point? If they say it's really bad, I'm still not going to sit out. I'd rather to wait until it's all over." While his single-minded focus on the playoffs is commendable, his agent must be praying that he doesn't aggravate the injury -- Melo's early-termination option is poised to make him a FA this summer.

  • 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
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:22 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
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:37 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
  • Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) scores 30 points
    Carmelo Anthony's shoulder wasn't a problem on Friday during a big 108-100 win in Toronto, shooting 8-of-17 from the field for 30 points with eight boards, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He said his shoulder bothered him on Sunday, but the schedule really helped Melo since that was the Knicks' last game. He was able to get to the line 14 times and really played with a lot of heart. The Knicks needed this win, but the Hawks beating Brooklyn hurts their chances to make the post season. They'll get a tough game against the Bulls on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:11 pm
  • 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
  • Alan Anderson out, Andrei Kirilenko starting
    Alan Anderson will miss Friday's game vs. the Hawks due to a sore abdominal muscle.

    Advice: He was expected to start tonight, but the team will now move Andrei Kirilenko into the first unit. Anderson's injury doesn't sound serious and he's likely just getting some rest. He has little fantasy value, though. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:49 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. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:44 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
  • Deron Williams (knee) out, Gutierrez starts
    Deron Williams (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks due to right patella tendinitis.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd said this is just about rest for Deron and his knee injury doesn't appear serious. Kidd said he's going to rest his players down the stretch and this will be Williams' first DNP since Jan. 16. He should be considered questionable on Sunday. Jorge Gutierrez starts tonight and may get some serious run with Shaun Livingston (foot) also out. Rotoworld.com
  • 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
  • Carmelo Anthony will play on Friday
    Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) will play in Friday's game against the Raptors.

    Advice: Anthony said he's refused further tests on his right (shooting) shoulder because there's no way he's sitting out no matter what. The Knicks are two games behind the Hawks for the final playoff spot in the East. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:38 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

  • 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
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:18 am
  • Aaron Brooks struggles with shot vs. Warriors
    Aaron Brooks struggled with his shot against the Warriors on Thursday during a 100-99 win, shooting 3-of-14 from the field for eight points with two boards, seven assists, one steal and two turnovers.

    Advice: His 3-point shot is not dropping right now, making just 4-of-20 (20.0 percent) in his last four games. Brooks has still played major minutes and has at least seven dimes in each of his last three games. Ty Lawson (ankle) is likely out for the year and Brooks should handle the point-guard duties the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:46 pm
  • Randy Foye scores 20 points vs. Warriors
    Randy Foye scored 20 points with seven boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers vs. the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: It wasn't a 30-point, 15-dime game like he had on Wednesday, but this is still a huge outing. Foye has surged all the way up to number nine in 3-pointers on the season and his 35 minutes per game since the break are a big reason why. He's a must-start guy the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:41 pm
  • Kenneth Faried hits game-winning shot vs. GSW
    Kenneth Faried hit a game-winning shot in the paint against the Warriors on Thursday, finishing with 18 points, 17 boards, one assist, one steal and six turnovers.

    Advice: Draymond Green played great defense on the Manimal and the degree of difficulty was pretty high, so it was tough luck for the Warriors. Faried's shot totals have jumped up to 13.2 per game since the break compared to just 8.1 from before that point, which has led to some big-time numbers. Plus, he's been much better at the line and has shockingly put up second-round value since the break in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:33 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. Rotoworld.com
    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. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:02 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
