  • Memphis Grizzlies show interest in Greg Oden
    The Memphis Grizzlies may have interest in Greg Oden, and they could bring him to a free-agent camp in June.

    Advice: Since pleading guilty to felony battery charges in December, Oden has been training with Ohio State's coaching staff and he has reportedly lost a lot of weight (down to 280 pounds in March). Oden was teammates with Mike Conley at Ohio State and the two are still close friends, so there could be some mutual interest between the two sides. The former No. 1 pick in the 2007 draft is as injury prone as they come, and he likely wouldn't be able to handle more than a limited role regardless of where he lands. We will track this story closely, but Oden isn't on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Jones wants to be an all-around player
    Terrence Jones said that he wants to become an "all-around player" for the Rockets next season.

    Advice: "I want to get better all-around, in the post, shooting, just come back a better all-around player for my team." Jones is loaded with upside, but his 2014-15 campaign was devastated by injuries. He made just 33 appearances in the regular season, and he never really seemed to be 100 percent. He averaged 13.5 points, 7.6 boards, 1.1 assists and 1.8 blocks in 24 starts this season, but his fantasy value will hinge on whether or not Josh Smith returns to Houston. The presence of Donatas Motiejunas (back) could cause some problems as well, but Jones will likely be the favorite to start next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Kostas Papanikolaou hopes to stay in NBA
    Kostas Papanikolaou is hopeful that he will be able to play in the NBA next season.

    Advice: Houston holds a $4.8 million player option on him for next season, but it doesn't seem likely that they would retain him for that price. Papanikolaou made just four appearances after the All-Star break due to a nagging ankle injury and wasn't able to get back into the rotation after Josh Smith arrived, so it looks like his time in Houston could be nearing an end. Papanikolaou will listen to all offers if Houston declines his option, but returning to Europe isn't on his mind just yet. Rotoworld.com

  • Whittington gets advice from Larry Bird
    Shayne Whittington said Larry Bird's message to him during their exit interview was that his playing time next season will depend on how hard he works this summer.

    Advice: "He was telling me it’s all on me," Whittington said. "It depends on how much I work this summer whether or not I play or whether or not I sit the bench again. He wants me to play but he wants me to work for it. So that’s what this summer is all about -- me working and getting better." Whittington has already started training and has improved his diet, but he will have his work cut out for him if he wants to be a consistent part of Indiana's rotation next season. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Smart offers advice to James Young
    Marcus Smart offered fellow rookie James Young some advice saying that he needs to work harder than he ever has before.

    Advice: "My advice would be to tell [Young], ‘You’ve got to work harder than you’ve ever worked. This isn’t college anymore. Guys are better than you or just as good as you and they’re always gonna bring someone to replace you if you’re not gonna do what you’re supposed to do, so you’ve got to keep that in mind, that I could be gone at any given time because every year there’s another batch of players coming in.’" Young only made 31 appearances this season and averaged just 3.4 points in 10.7 minutes per game, and it's clear that he is still very raw. Young is still just 19 years old, so he has plenty of time to develop into a solid player. We will track his progress closely at summer league. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Smart believes he was snubbed
    Marcus Smart, who was named to the All-Rookie Second Team, believes that he was snubbed.

    Advice: "I think I got snubbed, especially being one of the only rookies that really got major playing time and made the playoffs," Smart said. "I don’t think people took that into consideration." Smart had a decent rookie season and posted averages of 8.6 points, 4.0 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.3 3-pointers when he moved into the starting lineup, but he shot just 35.9 percent from the field during that span. He is already a high-level defender, but he will need to improve on the offensive end this summer. Smart will likely be the starter to open the 2015-16 season, but the presence of Isaiah Thomas could limit his appeal. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Curry practices without sleeve
    Stephen Curry practiced without the protective sleeve on his right elbow on Friday.

    Advice: Curry ditched the sleeve during the third quarter of Game 5 vs. the Rockets, and it didn't look his elbow was an issue. He still has five days to recover before facing off against the Cavaliers in Game 1 on Thursday, so the Warriors have to be thrilled that the MVP is ready to roll. For what it's worth, Curry has averaged 29.2 points, 6.4 assists, 4.9 boards, 4.9 3-pointers and 1.9 steals in the playoffs so far. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut takes a shot at Dwight Howard
    Andrew Bogut took a parting shot at Dwight Howard on Friday, saying that the Memphis series was more physical.

    Advice: "There was some physicality there (with Houston), like any playoff series, but the Memphis series was more physical," Bogut said. "This was more about ducking and weaving and getting out of the way of aired fists and elbows." Howard had some controversial moments against the Warriors, and he has already been suspended for the first game of the 2015-16 season. Bogut has been playing well in the postseason so far and he is probably relieved that Marc Gasol and Howard are in the rear-view mirror, but he will still have a tough matchup in the next round with Timofey Mozgov holding down the paint for Cleveland.

  • John Wall was kicked off a Las Vegas flight
    According to police, John Wall was kicked off a Las Vegas flight on Tuesday after one of his friends got into a verbal fight with another passenger.

    Advice: The airline didn't go into many details, but it doesn't sound like Wall will be in any kind of trouble. There were no charges or arrests, and neither the Wizards nor Wall plan on commenting. We will let you know if any new details emerge. Wall is still expected to see a hand specialist soon, so we should have a medical update on the All-Star point guard shortly. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo says incident damaged his reputation

    Advice: It also cost the Hawks some of their depth in the playoffs. "I was injured in the hands of the police, and it took away a lot from my everyday life," Sefolosha said. "From being able to help put the kids in bed, going up and down the stairs." For more on this story, click the link below. Rotoworld.com

  • Dante Exum says last year was a good step
    Dante Exum said last year was "a good step" for him.

    Advice: "I think I had a big learning curve, but I did learn a lot and now I think I know what I have to do to improve," Exum said. We all knew the teenage Aussie wouldn't hit the ground running, but his rookie season was a mild letdown. We did see some flashes and his off-ball game was a little ahead of expected. He's said his favorite play is pick-and-roll, but he'll need some more time to figure out how to run it against bigger guys. We'd love to see him get some extended summer-league run. Rotoworld.com

  • Mario Chalmers has arthroscopic knee surgery
    Mario Chalmers had arthroscopic surgery on Friday to repair an inflamed plica in his right knee.

    Advice: It was just a 20-minute procedure and Chalmers is going to begin rehabbing immediately. Obviously, he'll be ready to go for training camp in the fall. Chalmers had an up-and-down year, averaging 10.2 points, 2.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.9 treys. He'll be a late-round flier in fantasy leagues next season. Rotoworld.com

  • LBJ says slowing down Curry nearly impossible
    When LeBron James was asked how the Cavs will slow down Stephen Curry in the Finals he responded: "The same way you slow me down... you can't."

    Advice: There's equal respect going between current-MVP and former-MVP heading into the Finals, and watching these two go toe-to-toe should be nothing short of spectacular. Just like the Warriors will use a committee approach in attempting to slow down The Chosen One, the Cavs are going to throw a variety of defenders at Curry, starting with Kyrie Irving. Curry and James should continue to post ridiculous stat lines as the season comes to a close, but the efficiency of those lines will likely be a telling factor in the end results. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer would like to return to Houston
    Corey Brewer stated his desire to return to the Rockets next season.

    Advice: "I love playing [in Houston]," Brewer said. "I hope we are back together. We made the Western Conference finals and hopefully everything works out and we are all back together next year." Brewer waived his player option as a condition the trade that sent him from Minnesota to Houston, so he's going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He earned himself a nice role with the Rockets this year, but with averages of 11.9 points, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field, he's not much more than a low-end asset in standard leagues.

  • Howard suspended 1 game for flagrant fouls
    Dwight Howard will be suspended one game without pay for collecting his fourth Flagrant Foul points during the 2015 postseason.

    Advice: Howard's suspension will be served during the first game of next season in which he's eligible and physically able to play. He collected his fourth Flagrant Foul point when he extended his forearm into Andre Iguodala's neck during the closing minutes of Game 5 in the Western Conference Finals. Originally ruled as a common foul, the league upgraded the play to a Flagrant Foul 1 upon official review, deeming the contact to have been unnecessary. Rotoworld.com

  • MIA's issue w/ Wade is financial flexibility
    The Heat are reportedly hesitant to offer Dwyane Wade a big money contract because it would give the team limited financial flexibility.

    Advice: With Hassan Whiteside headed for a big payday in 2016, the Heat will be committing big money to Wade, Whiteside, Chris Bosh, and Goran Dragic, and the question is whether or not that team would be able to legitimately compete for a championship surrounded by low-money role players. However, if Miami is unable to come to terms with Wade and he ends up leaving the Heat, it will significantly hurt Miami's chances of retaining Dragic who is going to be pursued by the Lakers and Knicks this offseason to name a few. While Wade is no longer in his prime, he remains an important piece to Miami’s puzzle, and it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Smart says ankle finally 100 percent
    Marcus Smart said that he has now fully recovered from the ankle sprain that sidelined him for nearly a month during the regular-season.

    Advice: Smart went down with the ankle injury on November 7, and didn't return until December 3, but he was in pain for most of the season. Smart played some quality defense during his rookie season, but his averages of 8.6 points, 2.9 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.3 three-pointers on 35.9 percent shooting from the field (62.5 percent from the stripe) left a lot to be desired from a fantasy perspective. He'll need to improve his assist numbers and shooting percentages in order to become a standard league asset, and we'll be monitoring his development closely this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade looking for three-year deal?
    Dwyane Wade is looking to be in the neighborhood of a three-year, $50 million deal this summer, according to ESPN's Michael Wallace.

    Advice: This isn't from Wade and is just a rumor, but it makes sense. Wade is getting dangerously close to the tail end of his career and even the biggest Wade fan will say he's past his prime. The Heat are still the favorites for Wade, but expect a number of teams to try and pick him up. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Curry excited to face LeBron
    Sonya Curry said her son is "loving this whole thing about playing against LeBron" in the NBA Finals.

    Advice: To make Knicks fans feel worse, Stephen's mom also said on 2009 draft night that she thought her son was going to New York. Instead, the Knicks took Jordan Hill at eight with Curry going just in front of them at seven. We've had some sub-par basketball in the past couple weeks, but the NBA Finals should be a doozy.

  • Report: Wade at impasse w/ MIA on contract
    Dwyane Wade and the Heat are reportedly at an early impasse on his contract negotiations.

    Advice: Wade reportedly wants to opt out of his contract this summer, with the hope of landing a lucrative three-year deal with Miami. However, the Heat would prefer he opts in to his $16 million deal and then signs a good, but not huge amount of money in 2016. There's reportedly a "sizable gap" on what Wade hopes to earn and what the Heat are prepared to offer, and Wade is reportedly now open to considering other teams this summer if Miami doesn't present him with a number to his liking. This will be a very interesting story to watch develop over the course of the offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • HOU not worried about Dwight Howard's health
    The Rockets are not worried in Dwight Howard's long-term health, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN.

    Advice: Even though Howard missed half of the team's regular season games due to a problematic knee, the Rockets aren't concerned about the 29-year-old's long-term health. Howard finished the 2014-15 season strong with a solid playoff performance and will end up being a sneaky early-mid round fantasy pick for the 2015-16 season if he proves the Rockets right and is able to stay healthy.

  • Dwight Howard says he's still a champion
    Dwight Howard said he's still a champion despite the Rockets loss in the Western Conference Finals.

    Advice: The eventual 2014-15 NBA Champion may disagree with Howard's sentiment, but D-12 did manage to finish the season strong after missing half of the regular season with a knee injury. We'll keep an eye on his status this summer as a minor knee procedure is still a possibility, but Howard could end up being a mid-round steal in 2015-16 fantasy drafts if he can stay on the court.

  • Stephen Curry sheds elbow sleeve, scores 26
    Stephen Curry scored 26 points with eight rebounds, six assists, five steals, three turnovers and three 3-pointers on 7-of-21 from the field against the Rockets in a series-clinching win on Wednesday.

    Advice: He ditched his elbow sleeve in the third quarter after messing with it throughout the game. Curry had plenty of clean looks and the Warriors gave him a slew of off-ball screens to get him loose. He is going to have a week to recover before Game 1 in Oakland on June 4. In two games against the Cavs this season, Curry averaged 20.5 points, 8.0 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys. It'll be a treat watching him face off against Kyrie Irving. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard scores 18 with 16 boards
    Dwight Howard was a beast under the glass during a Game 5 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks in 42 minutes.

    Advice: He had a couple dirty plays tonight and he would have been suspended had the Rockets been able to pull out a win tonight because of his seventh technical foul of the playoffs. Bad stuff aside, Howard looked like his old self under the glass, but he did make just 5-of-13 from the field. Considering all the knee problems he had this season, there's a decent chance he has a minor procedure this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade drops 12 pounds in a month
    Dwyane Wade dropped 12 pounds in one month.

    Advice: He was up to 228 pounds and dropped it to 216, which is below his listed playing weight of 220. Wade has never had any fitness issues, but it's rarely a bad thing for a 33-year-old guard to show he can still drop weight. He'll be risky in drafts again next season and he's not someone we'll be aggressively targeting. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Curry doesn't want to wear the brace
    Stephen Curry said he doesn't want to wear his elbow sleeve on his right arm and that it is a precaution, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: In other words, the Warriors medical staff has the final say here. He reportedly looked just fine in warmups and he's already said he expects to play normally. Curry won't have a minutes restriction and he'll have the home crowd behind him. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Stephen Curry will see his normal minutes
    Stephen Curry is going through shootaround on Wednesday wearing a right elbow sleeve, but he will play and see his normal amount of minutes in Game 5 vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Curry had a scary fall in Game 4 and appeared to hit his head, shoulder and elbow, but he said that he feels fine and that he is dealing with some bruising and general soreness on the right side of his body. For what it's worth, Curry passed the league's concussion protocol twice before he re-entered Monday's game, and he seemed to be fine after that. His elbow could be a little sore, so it will be interesting to see if it has any impact on his shooting stroke. We will pass along any additional details when we know more, but it's safe to activate him in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard won't be suspended for Flagrant
    Dwight Howard will not be suspended for hitting Andrew Bogut above the shoulders during Game 3 on Monday.

    Advice: The play earned Dwight Howard a Flagrant-1 foul and the Rockets are fortunate that he was neither ejected nor suspended for his swipe at Bogut. NBA executive Rod Thorn said in a statement, "Howard was trying to extricate himself from Bogut and recklessly hit him in the face with an open hand. The contact was unnecessary but was not deemed excessive ... we don't see a reason to modify that call." Howard will try to help the Rockets extend their season during Wednesday's must-win road game.

  • Curry went through concussion protocol twice
    Stephen Curry went through the league mandated concussion protocol testing twice before he re-entered Game 4 on Monday.

    Advice: "At the very, very end, when he passed the tests, then it became ‘there’s no reason he couldn’t play,’" Warriors' GM Bob Myers said. "So then it was, he passed the tests, passed them once, passed them twice… At that moment, he looked at me, said, ‘Yeah, I’m ready to go.’" There haven't been any reports of Curry experiencing any delayed concussion-like symptoms, so at this point it would seem safe to assume he'll be in uniform for Wednesday's Game 5 in Oakland.

    Rockets head coach Kevin McHale defended Dwight Howard's flagrant foul during Houston's Game 4 win against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Howard may hear from the league about his elbow to Andrew Bogut's face and McHale may be trying to get out in front of any potential suspension talk here. "He just tried to get him off him," McHale said. "Bogut grabbed him and as always, the second foul gets called." We'll keep an eye on any discipline from the league on this one, but as of now, Howard will be in the Rockets starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5. Rotoworld.com

"It could have been a lot worse. I felt like I was in the air for a long time," Curry said. "It's a bad feeling. You try make a play on the ball.

    Stephen Curry returned from a head contusion in the third quarter on Monday, finishing with 23 points, one rebound, four assists and six 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He cleared a concussion test and air-balled his first shot from beyond the arc after a return. Curry made 4-of-11 after the injury and had all four of his assists, so the injury didn't seem to affect him too much. He'll be ready to roll for Game 5 on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

I really appreciate the big fella expressing himself and letting us all know how much he wants to win, and hopefully we can all go out there and give that kind of effort."

  • Dwight Howard says Rockets will keep fighting
    With Houston facing a 3-0 deficit to the Warriors , Dwight Howard said that the only thing the Rockets can do is fight.

    Advice: "There’s a lot of words I could say about tonight, but I’ve got to keep my teammates together," Howard said after Game 3 on Saturday. "We can’t fold. We can’t quit. It’s easy to give up and say they’re playing great. It’s easy to do that. They’re going to have to take all of us out on a stretcher. We ain’t going down lightly. We’re down 3-0 in the Western Conference finals. The only thing we can do is fight." Howard contributed 14 points, 14 boards and one block in the loss, and the good news is that his knee doesn't appear to be giving him any problems. Game 4 is set to take place in Houston on Monday, and Howard should be in line for a big game with the Rockets facing elimination. Rotoworld.com

    Andrew Bogut was dominant during an easy win over the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 12 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and no turnovers.

    Advice: He fouled out in his 20 minutes of action, but Bogut set the tone in the first quarter with 10 points in the first six minutes. He was also involved in contesting several shots and continues to be a bit of the unsung hero for the Warriors and their tremendous in-the-paint defense. Rotoworld.com

    Dwight Howard scored 14 points with 14 rebounds, one block and two turnovers in 33 minutes against the Warriors during a Game 3 loss on Saturday.

    Advice: He was 2-of-8 from the line tonight and the Rockets made just 19-of-31 as a team. Howard just has way too much pressure on him because the Rockets' perimeter defense has been non-existent. The easy buckets are not his fault and he's played well in the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    Corey Brewer played just 19 minutes and hit 1-of-5 shots for three points, zero rebounds and one assist in Thursday's Game 2 loss.

    Advice: Josh Smith and Brewer were awful tonight, which is probably why the Rockets are down 2-0 in the series, instead of it being tied 1-1. After scoring in double figures in the final three games against the Clippers in the last series, Brewer has scored a total of 12 points in two games against the Warriors, hitting just 4-of-12 shots.

    Advice: Josh Smith was awful tonight and it would have made sense for Kevin McHale to pull the plug on him and roll with Jones in Game 2, but that didn't really happen. If Jones wants more minutes, he's going to have to do a better job of crashing the boards than he did tonight, but if Smith struggles early in Saturday's Game 3, don't be surprised if McHale turns to Jones earlier in that must-win game.

    Andrew Bogut, still not 100 percent while dealing with the flu, played 31 minutes and hit 7-of-9 shots for 14 points, eight rebounds, four assists and five blocks in Thursday's win over the Rockets.

    Advice: He battled Stephen Curry for tonight's game MVP honors and probably deserves the nod given the fact he needed an IV after Game 1 on Tuesday. Bogut is going to be a factor the rest of the way and makes for a nice value play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut needed post-game IV on Tuesday
    Andrew Bogut (illness) needed a post-game IV after Game 1 against the Rockets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bogut said he played "horribly" in Game 1 as he dealt with the flu and required an IV after playing 16 minutes in the game. Bogut may see less playing time in the series if Dwight Howard's knee injury is serious, but he doesn't seem in danger of missing any games due to the flu and will be an important defensive piece for the Warriors if Howard is able to suit up.

  • Andrew Bogut a non-factor in 16 minutes Tues
    Andrew Bogut was a non-factor in the Warriors' win on Tuesday, going scoreless with four rebounds and one steal in only 16 minutes.

    Advice: Bogut said that Dwight Howard's game is "very similar" to Zach Randolph "but with five or 10 times the athleticism." He struggled with the assignment early, got into early foul trouble, and found himself rooted to the bench in the second half as the Warriors succeeded with small-ball lineups. Bogut may still emerge as a key to the series, especially if Dwight's knee injury isn't serious, but Golden State has to feel confident after winning without getting much from their starting center.
