  • Kent Bazemore puts a nice bow on his series
    Kent Bazemore scored 15 points with four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: He's making some money this month. In his six playoff games, Bazemore averaged 14.0 points, 7.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll have a huge role in the next round and will likely be starting off on LeBron James. Expect him to play minutes in the mid 30s. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:07 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 16 points with nine boards
    Kyle Korver made all four shots from the field and all four from the line for 14 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Not bad. He drove his fantasy owners crazy during the regular season, but Korver is kind of rolling now when it counts for the Hawks. In his six games during this series, Korver averaged 12.2 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 3.0 treys on a pristine 67.3 true shooting percentage. He'll be very important in the second round and will likely have a mini 3-point contest in a head-to-head matchup with J.R. Smith at shooting guard. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:05 pm
  • Jeff Teague tweaks troublesome left ankle
    Jeff Teague tweaked his left ankle in the first quarter on Thursday and did return, finishing with 11 points, one rebound, five assists and four turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He couldn't really shake his left ankle issue and had to go to the locker room a couple times. Teague will have a few days off before he gets Kyrie Irving on Monday, but he might not need it anyway because it looks minor. The former All-Star will be one of the most important players in the entire second round. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 25; Celtics eliminated
    Isiah Thomas carried the offensive load in a season-ending 104-92 loss to the Hawks on Thursday, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.

    Advice: He just needs some help on offense. The Celtics offense just falls apart when Thomas is out there in his All-Star season. The Celtics are playing with house money on IT after the Suns traded him away, so they will continue to feature him. They will likely add some help for Thomas on the offensive end, but the Pizza Guy should be ready to roll as a top-50 pick in drafts next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:53 pm
  • Evan Turner scores eight in off finale
    Evan Turner's solid series ended on a down note during a loss to the Hawks on Thursday, making 4-of-17 from the field for eight points with seven rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He was a big part of the rotation due to Avery Bradley (hamstring) going down. Turner surpassed most expectations to help his value heading into free agency, especially late in the season and in the postseason. In his 12 starts this regular season, Turner averaged 15.0 points, 6.0 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.6 treys. Several teams will be after The Villain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • Marcus Smart turns in decent game in loss
    Marcus Smart scored 13 points with seven rebounds, one assist, four steals and three turnovers in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

    Advice: He was getting stretched out on the bench with a leg issue, but it didn't cost him time. His defense was great with plenty of anticipation to help spark some runs in this game. However, Smart will go into the offseason with major offensive concerns. He sort of shined at Summer League last year, but he couldn't string games together during the season outside one his pre-break run. He will likely be a high-upside player with risk next year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Teague (ankle) to locker room to be re-taped
    Jeff Teague (left ankle) went to the locker room to be re-taped and has returned

    Advice: This is the same left ankle that caused him problems for most of the season. He played for a few minutes, went to the bench, came back out to play, and went to the locker room after all that. Teague has suffered a couple minor tweaks before and usually goes to the locker room right away, so this one is very minor. He'll be back on the court soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:34 pm
  • Livingston will be more aggressive sans Curry
    Shaun Livingston said that he'll be more aggressive on the offensive end for however long Stephen Curry (knee) is sidelined.

    Advice: "I have to be more aggressive just because of the production that's out," Livingston said. "I don't expect to make all of that up — this guy leads the league in scoring. But it's really important we all remain aggressive and confident." Livingston knocked down 7-of-8 shots during Wednesday's series clinching Game 5 win over Houston, on his way to 16 points, three boards, three assists and just one turnover. Curry likely won't be ready for the start of the second-round, so Livingston could make for a nice low-budget DFS play when the Dubs second-round series begins. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will start on Thursday
    Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 6 against the Hawks.

    Advice: The Celtics will go with the same starting lineup they've been using of Thomas, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson for Game 6, and Thomas will look to bounce back from a disappointing Game 5 performance for Thursday's home game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:09 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas not limited at shootaround
    Isaiah Thomas (ankle) was moving around well during Thursday's shootaround, and his ankle didn't appear to be wrapped in anything other than KT tape.

    Advice: All signs are pointing towards Thomas giving it a go tonight, and he should be able to bounce back from Tuesday's disappointing 3-of-12 shooting performance in front of the Boston home crowd for Game 6. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off, but it would be surprising to see Thomas on the sidelines Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:15 pm
  • LAC not lacking in confidence heading into G6
    Jamal Crawford said that the Clippers feel "really good" about their chances of securing a Game 6 win in Portland.

    Advice: "We were in the same situation last year, we had to go to San Antonio and win on their court in a Game 6 to force a Game 7 in front of our home fans," said Crawford. "We’re a confident group. We feel really good about Game 6." It's true that the Clippers pulled off a comeback against the Spurs last season, but that was with a healthy Blake Griffin (quad) and Chris Paul (hand). Crawford is going to be heavily involved on the offensive end, but he'll need to be more efficient if the Clippers hope to secure an upset. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Tyler Johnson (shoulder) questionable for G6
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Friday's Game 6 against the Hornets.

    Advice: Johnson was available to play for Game 5, but didn't actually step foot on the court. He'll likely again be available for Game 6, but he won't play enough minutes to matter in any setting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:32 pm
  • Nicolas Batum will come off the bench Friday
    Nicolas Batum will again come off the bench for Friday's Game 6 against Miami.

    Advice: The Hornets have now won three in a row, and Batum doesn't want to disrupt the chemistry of the first-unit. His ankle still isn't quite 100 percent, so expect his minutes to be in the 25 range. Kemba Walker, Courtney Lee, Marvin Williams, Frank Kaminsky and Al Jefferson will start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:01 pm
  • Paul George could play 48 mins in Game 6?
    Frank Vogel hinted that Paul George may be on the court for all 48 minutes during Friday's Game 6 against the Raptors.

    Advice: "If necessary," Vogel said when asked if George could play 48 minutes in Game 6. "We'll see tomorrow night." PG-13 was phenomenal during Game 5, matching his playoff career-high with 39 points, but the Pacers really struggled any time he wasn't on the floor. Game 6 is a must-win game for Indiana, so it wouldn't be surprising to see George play a hefty amount of minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:48 am
  • Kevin Martin (illness) practices Thursday
    Kevin Martin (illness) has been a full participant during the Spurs past two practices.

    Advice: Martin was forced to miss Game 4 of San Antonio's first-round series against the Grizzlies with an illness, but he should be good to go for Saturday's Game 1 matchup with the Thunder. However, with everyone on the Spurs roster healthy, Martin won't play enough minutes to matter in most formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:36 am
  • Tony Parker wants to play until he's 38
    Tony Parker said that he wants to play until he's 38 years old.

    Advice: "I will definitely not go to 40 [like Tim Duncan]," said Parker. "20 seasons will be enough." If Parker is able to meet his goal, that will give him another five years in the league. However, Parker only managed to put up 14th round value in standard 9-cat leagues this season, and his numbers will only continue to get worse as the years go on. He won't be a great standard league target next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:10 am
  • J.R. Smith able to practice on Thursday
    J.R. Smith (groin) was able to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Smith is dealing with a tweaked groin from Friday's Game 4 win over the Pistons, but has plenty of time as Cleveland is still awaiting a winner from the Hawks-Celtics series. It would be a big surprise if Smith isn't ready to go for the start of the second round. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:39 am
  • Evan Turner will have suitors in free agency
    There will be several teams interested in Evan Turner when he becomes a free agent this summer, according to league sources.

    Advice: Turner has resurrected his career as the Celtics sixth man and it hasn't gone unnoticed around the league. "He’s done everything they’ve asked him to do and from what I hear, hasn’t grumbled a day about it," one rival executive said. "Every team needs a guy like that in their locker room." Turner looks to be in line for a raise this summer and could see a minor boost in fantasy value if he finds a job as a starter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 am
  • Stephen Curry to test knee on court next week
    Stephen Curry (knee) will begin testing his knee on the court next week, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

    Advice: Spears reports that Curry is feeling better, according to sources, and is targeting next week to test his knee as he attempts to get back on the court. The Warriors are still awaiting a winner from the Clippers-Trail Blazers series, so he'll have some extra time to recover from his Grade 1 sprain. Shaun Livingston will continue to start as long as Curry is out, but we'll undoubtedly have updates before Golden State's next series starts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:30 am
  • Klay Thompson propels GSW into second round
    Klay Thompson and the Warriors obliterated the Rockets in a series-clinching win on Wednesday, led by Klay's 27 points on 10-of-14 shooting, including a 7-of-11 mark from downtown.

    Advice: Golden State built a 30-point lead mid-way through the third quarter, fueled by a 3-point barrage from Thompson, and they won by a final score of 114-81. He's the first player in NBA history to make at least seven 3s in consecutive playoff games -- if nothing else, tonight's eruption confirms that the Warriors are a scary team even when one Splash Brother is in street clothes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:27 pm
  • Shaun Livingston shoots 7-of-8 in Game 5 win
    Shaun Livingston made 7-of-8 shots for 16 points during the Warriors' Game 5 victory, adding three boards, three assists and just one turnover in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Livingston is a savvy defender whose offense is underrated -- he's not a 3-point threat, but he's a great passer who consistently uses his 6'7" frame to shoot over smaller guards from the paint out to 20 feet. Steph Curry (sprained knee) has an uncertain return date, so Livingston could earn at least a few more starts at PG in the second round of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:25 pm
  • James Harden has 35/6/6 in season-ending loss
    James Harden scored 35 points (12-of-13 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs) with six boards, six assists and seven turnovers on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to keep the Rockets from elimination.

    Advice: Trevor Ariza's offense dried up vs. Golden State, the Rockets couldn't get Dwight Howard consistent touches around the basket, and the offensive burden proved to be too much for Harden to shoulder alone. He opened tonight's game 6-of-8 from the field, with his teammates a combined 0-of-15, resulting in a huge early deficit that Houston simply couldn't overcome. It will be an offseason of soul-searching for the Rockets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Trevor Ariza awful offensively in postseason
    Trevor Ariza finished his 2015-16 season with just two points, one rebound and one assist on Wednesday, going 1-of-8 from downtown as the Rockets fell to the Warriors in Game 5.

    Advice: Ariza was dreadful offensively throughout the first round of the playoffs, shooting 25.5 percent, and the only positive was his defense -- he averaged 2.6 steals and was easily the leader in deflections per game (4.8). He flirted with top-40 fantasy value during the regular season (9-cat) but his role could change depending upon Houston's choice of a head coach, not to mention any personnel moves this offseason. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (hamstring) quiet in finale
    Patrick Beverley (hamstring) logged 26 minutes during Wednesday's season-ending loss, finishing with two points on 1-of-5 shooting, four rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Beverley seemingly caught a break this series with Stephen Curry suffering multiple injuries, but he was banged up himself and finished with poor averages of 5.8 points on 27.0 percent shooting, 4.4 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.4 steals. He's not much of a playmaker in Houston's offense but still racked up top-100 value this season thanks to solid 3-pointers (1.7 per game) and steals (1.3) with very low turnovers (1.3) for a point guard. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:21 pm
  • Brandon Rush scores 15 points in blowout
    In his highest-scoring game since Jan. 8, Brandon Rush came off the bench on Wednesday for 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Rush scored 10 of his points in the second half, during what was essentially garbage time, but it's still an encouraging sign for the Warriors. The easy win gives Golden State some extra rest before their second-round matchup vs. either the Clippers or Blazers, and it provides an emotional lift for a team that's playing without their MVP. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 pm
  • Jamal Crawford scores 17 points on 23 shots
    Jamal Crawford moved into the starting lineup on Wednesday and proceeded to launch 23 shots, making six of them to finish with 17 points, four assists, three rebounds and two steals.

    Advice: Crawford started alongside Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and DeAndre Jordan, a unit that played a mere four minutes together during the 2015-16 season. Doc Rivers' gamble was born of desperation and resulted in a home loss, but Crawford is guaranteed a huge role again in Game 6 -- he played 44 minutes tonight and was the focal point of the Clippers' offense. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • Austin Rivers logs 37 mins as fill-in starter
    Austin Rivers started Wednesday's game in place of Chris Paul (broken metacarpal) and had 13 points, three rebounds, three assists and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Rivers faces a daunting task with CP3 out of commission, assuming lead playmaking duties while defending Damian Lillard at the other end. Paul had the second-highest Player Impact Estimate in the playoffs prior to his injury, trailing only Paul George, and nobody is expecting Rivers to approach that production. DFS owners can still view him as a viable punt play, assuming his price doesn't spike prior to Game 6. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:04 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 17 points in futile effort
    Jeff Green scored 17 points off the bench during Game 5, making 6-of-10 shots with six rebounds, three steals, two assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Blake Griffin's quad injury has prematurely ended his season, leaving Green a big opportunity even if he isn't starting. He can't fill the void by himself, and more minutes are also available for Wes Johnson (five points, five rebounds) and Paul Pierce (two rebounds), but Green is easily the most palatable DFS option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:02 pm
  • J.J. Redick scores team-high 19 points vs POR
    J.J. Redick scored a team-high 19 points for the Clippers during Game 5, making 7-of-17 shots with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Redick is dealing with a left heel bruise but the Clippers need everything he can give them, especially now that Chris Paul and Blake Griffin are done for the postseason. He was one of six Clippers in double-digits tonight but they shot just 41.9 percent as a team, leaving them one loss away from a premature playoff exit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:01 pm
  • C.J. McCollum leads victorious Blazers w/ 27
    C.J. McCollum led Portland with 27 points during Wednesday's Game 5 win in L.A., making 9-of-18 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with four boards, four assists and two blocks.

    Advice: He committed just one turnover in 38 minutes, and he knocked down two 3-pointers while joining Damian Lillard in a second-half surge that led to a double-digit road victory. Portland is one win away from advancing to a second-round matchup with the Warriors, and their odds are looking good with a home game looming and both Chris Paul and Blake Griffin out of commission. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • Damian Lillard heats up in 2nd half of Game 5
    Damian Lillard got hot late vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, shooting 7-of-20 from the field with five 3-pointers for 22 points, five assists and three steals in a 108-98 road victory.

    Advice: Lillard's usage rate has dropped since the regular season, and he came in shooting a mere 36.5 percent in the Blazers' first-round series. Much of that can be attributed to Chris Paul's individual defense, however, and Lillard shook off a very quiet first half to erupt for 19 points in the third and fourth quarters. He's poised for a huge line vs. Austin Rivers and Pablo Prigioni in Friday's home game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 pm
  • Tyler Johnson (shoulder) picks up DNP-CD
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) was available to play in Game 5 on Wednesday but he didn't leave Miami's bench.

    Advice: Johnson was available in case of emergency but wound up getting a DNP-CD. We're taking him off the injury report but it's unlikely that he'll crack the rotation in a critical Game 6 at Charlotte on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:58 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (ankle) plays 25 mins off bench
    Nicolas Batum (sprained ankle) came off the bench on Wednesday for eight points, three rebounds, three assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Batum didn't have his normal agility and he was tentative early, but he knocked in some huge jumpers down the stretch, helping the Hornets hang on for a tough 90-88 victory. He'll get just one day to rest before returning to action for Friday's Game 6 in Charlotte, so it's unlikely that he'll be 100 percent in the Hornets' potential closeout game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Jamal Crawford starting Game 5 vs. Blazers
    Jamal Crawford will start Game 5 on Wednesday, alongside Austin Rivers, J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and DeAndre Jordan.

    Advice: Doc Rivers wants more spacing on the court, and the decision to start Crawford takes care of another problem -- with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both out, the Clippers are very short on playmakers. Crawford should have a high usage rate in as many minutes as he can handle tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 pm
  • Austin Rivers, Pierce, Crawford all starting
    Austin Rivers will start Game 5 on Wednesday with Chris Paul (hand) done for the postseason.

    Advice: Paul Pierce and Jamal Crawford are also starting, with Luc Mbah a Moute coming off the bench. Rivers and Crawford should share primary ball-handling duties and his minutes will spike by default with CP3 out of commission, but Rivers remains a gamble in DFS lineups. In seven starts this season he averaged 13.7 points, 2.0 threes, 2.7 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 turnovers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:00 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (ankle) off bench in Game 5
    Nicolas Batum (ankle) will come off the Hornets' bench on Wednesday, as expected.

    Advice: The Hornets won their past two games without Batum and coach Steve Clifford likely doesn't want to mess with his starters' newfound chemistry. Batum reportedly volunteered to come off the bench and owners can expect his minutes to hover in the 24-28 range in his first game back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:33 pm
  • Nicolas Batum expected to play off bench
    Nicolas Batum (ankle) is expected to play off the bench on Wednesday against the Heat.

    Advice: It sounds like he will be limited after missing the last two games. Although, Batum did go to Clifford to suggest coming off the bench because of how well the Hornets played without him in Game 3 and 4. He will likely play minutes in the 20s and take run away from Frank Kaminsky, Jeremy Lin, Marvin Williams and Spencer Hawes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:37 pm
  • Tyler Johnson active as emergency option
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is available as an emergency option Game 5 on Wednesday.

    Advice: Basically, two guards would have to get hurt in this game for coach Erik Spoelstra to get Johnson in there. For now, it looks like Johnson won't be ready until the second round. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:26 pm
  • All positive signs for Isaiah Thomas
    Coach Brad Stevens said all signs are pointing to Isaiah Thomas (ankle) playing in Game 6 on Thursday.

    Advice: "Isaiah seems positive about [his ankle] and feels good," Stevens said. Thomas did not return from his ankle roll on Tuesday, but there has never been any cause for concern. Thomas did not score in the first half on Tuesday and only finished with seven points. Now that he's back in Boston, expect a bounce back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:16 pm
  • J.R. Smith sits out Wednesday's practice
    J.R. Smith (groin) was withheld from Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Smith tweaked his groin during Game 4's win over the Pistons, but his absence from Wednesday's practice feels more precautionary than anything else, as head coach Tyronn Lue said he'll be fine. Cleveland is currently awaiting the results of the Atlanta-Boston first-round series to determine whom they will play in the second-round, but with that series not set to conclude until Thursday at the earliest, Smith has plenty of time to rest up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:37 am
  • Tyler Johnson (shoulder) ruled out for Game 5
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Hornets.

    Advice: Johnson is inching his way closer to a return, has gone through a full contact practice, and he's reportedly targeting a return to the court for Game 6 on Friday. While Johnson will take some minutes away from Josh Richardson upon his return to the court, it's unlikely he earns enough minutes to matter in most formats, particularly with Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:30 am
  • Nicolas Batum (ankle) on track to play in G5
    Nicolas Batum (ankle) was a full participant during shootaround, and head coach Steve Clifford said that he'll more than likely play in Wednesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

    Advice: Batum was initially ruled out for the entire first-round series, so it's surprising that he's made enough progress to get back on the court after spending a mere five days in recovery. Batum said that he will come off the bench if he does play, and Clifford acknowledged it's unlikely he sees his usual workload, so he'll make for a bit of a risky DFS target tonight. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off, but both Frank Kaminsky and Jeremy Lin figure to take a bit of a hit with Batum back in the fold. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:02 am
  • Ainge expects Isaiah Thomas to play in Gm 6
    Danny Ainge said it's very likely that Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Hawks.

    Advice: Thomas exited Tuesday's blowout loss to the Hawks during the fourth quarter with a "mild left ankle sprain" and did not return, but he also said after the game that he'll be a go for Game 6 "playing no matter what." With Avery Bradley (hamstring) sidelined, the Celtics absolutely need IT4 if they hope to have any shot of securing a Game 6 win, so it would be very surprising to see Thomas miss that one. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 am
  • Isaiah Thomas says he will play in Game 6
    Isaiah Thomas (ankle) said that he will play in Game 6 on Thursday.

    Advice: The Celtics called the injury a "mild left ankle sprain," but Thomas said that it's just a tweak. The Celtics were losing by nearly 30 points when he left the game in the fourth quarter, so it sounds like they held him out as a precaution. Thomas didn't play well with just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting, so he will need to be much better on Thursday to keep his team in this series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:36 pm
  • Marcus Smart scores 10 points in loss
    Marcus Smart scored 10 points on 2-of-7 shooting in Game 5 on Tuesday, adding two boards, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The shooting percentage was rough, but Smart could be looking at a larger role in Game 6 on Thursday if Isaiah Thomas (ankle) is unable to play. Smart was coming off his best game of the series with 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and two steals in Game 4, so hopefully he gets back on track on Thursday as the Celtics look to even the series. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • Evan Turner scores 15 points in loss
    Evan Turner scored 15 points in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Hawks, shooting 5-of-10 from the field.

    Advice: He was the best player on the floor for the Celtics tonight, as Isaiah Thomas (ankle) couldn't get anything to go on the offensive end. Turner added five rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes, and he's still a must-start player in all formats until further notice. If Thomas is unable to play in Game 6 on Thursday, expect Turner to run the offense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 13, adds five steals
    Kyle Korver scored 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, adding two boards, one assist, five steals and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He averaged 0.8 steals during the regular season, so to see him record five tonight seems like a fluke. However, Korver has now scored in double digits in four straight games after being held to two points in Game 1, so he's heating up at the perfect time for the Hawks. He's also hit 16 3-pointers over his last four games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Kent Bazemore scores 16, Hawks win 110-83
    Kent Bazemore scored 16 points to lead the Hawks to a 110-83 win over the Celtics in Game 5 on Tuesday, giving them a 3-2 series lead.

    Advice: He's the definition of a streaky player, as he needed just 23 minutes to score 16 points tonight after scoring just five points in 40 minutes in Game 4. That inconsistency makes him hard to trust, but the upside is clearly there if you deploy him on the right night. Bazemore added five boards, one block and four 3-pointers on 6-of-14 shooting. He was listed as probable on the injury report due to a lingering knee issue, but he obviously looked fine tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (mild sprained ankle) out for game
    Isaiah Thomas has been diagnosed with a "mild" left ankle sprain and will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: It doesn't sound serious and the Celtics are going to be cautious since they are being blown out in Game 5. Barring a surprise, this means that Thomas should be ready for Game 6 in Boston on Thursday. If Thomas' ankle somehow keeps him out on Thursday, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier would benefit. Thomas finished with seven points, three assists, one boards and three turnovers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:45 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas goes to locker room Tuesday
    Isaiah Thomas left Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks and went back to the locker room. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:39 pm
  • Paul George scores 39 in loss to Raptors
    Paul George matched his playoff career high with 39 points in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, shooting 11-of-19 from the field and 12-of-12 from the line.

    Advice: He was a +15 in 41 minutes and added eight rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers, yet the Pacers still lost by three because George didn't have much help and they were torched every time he went to the bench for a quick rest. The Pacers were up by as many as 17 points, but they were outscored 25-9 in the fourth quarter and now trail the Raptors 3-2 in the series. PG-13 has been the best player in this series and he will look to tie things up in Indiana for Game 6 on Friday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:47 pm
  • Jeff Green expected to start Wednesday
    Jeff Green is expected to move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5 against Portland.

    Advice: Blake Griffin (quad) is going to miss the remainder of the postseason for Los Angeles, so the starting four-spot is Green's to lose. He'll be taking on a much larger role on offense with Chris Paul (hand) also done for the year, so he'll be a reasonable guy to consider in DFS with his minutes set to spike to the mid-30s. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:32 pm
  • Austin Rivers expected to start Wednesday
    Austin Rivers is expected to start at point guard for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Blazers, according to Arash Markazi of ESPN.

    Advice: Chris Paul (hand) will be sidelined for at least the next 4-6 weeks, meaning that Rivers should be the Clippers starting point guard the rest of the way. Consistency tends to be a major issue with Rivers, but with both CP3 and Blake Griffin (quad) on the sidelines, he's going to have a ton of opportunity coming his way. He'll be on the radar as a potential DFS target on Wednesday night. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:30 pm
  • Patrick Beverley says he'll play on Wednesday
    Patrick Beverley (hamstring) went through a full practice on Tuesday and said that he'll "definitely" play in Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beverley sat out Monday's practice, so his participation in Tuesday's practice is an encouraging sign regarding his availability for Wednesday's Game 5 in Oakland. He'll likely be a game-time call on Wednesday night, but it's worth noting that he was reportedly moving around well during Tuesday's practice. It would be surprising to see him miss Game 5, but if he does, Corey Brewer and Jason Terry will benefit most. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:28 pm
  • J.J. Redick (heel) participates at practice
    J.J. Redick (heel) was spotted getting up some jumpers following Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Redick's nagging heel injury appeared to affect his play during Monday's Game 4 loss to the Blazers, but it's a good sign that he was able to go through Tuesday's practice. With Chris Paul (hand) and Blake Griffin (quad) done for the remainder of the postseason, Redick is going to be asked to step it up in a big way on the offensive end. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:58 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (foot) questionable for Game 5
    Nicolas Batum (left foot strain) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Heat.

    Advice: Steve Clifford did say that Batum was feeling better on Tuesday, although they won't make an official decision until closer to Wednesday's tip. He'll likely be a game-time call, but if he's out, Jeremy Lin will be the primary beneficiary while Frank Kaminsky will have another opportunity to start. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:54 pm
  • Kent Bazemore feeling good ahead of Game 5
    Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Kent Bazmore (knee) is feeling good ahead of Game 5 on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bazemore is listed as probable with a knee injury, but it's nothing that will hold him out of such an important game on Tuesday. Bazemore is averaging 13.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers in the thus far in the playoffs and is a strong DFS play on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:52 am
  • Tyler Johnson could be an option for Game 6
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder surgery) is getting closer to a return and could potentially play in Game 6.

    Advice: While Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra said Johnson is close to forcing some discussions, the Heat guard said he's feeling much better. "The biggest thing is I made progress today without having pain," Johnson said. "This was the second day where I had a good workout or practice and didn’t feel anything. If this continues, I think we can start working towards maybe getting in there." Johnson's return while cut into Josh Richardson's minutes a bit, but he'll likely be eased back into action once he's able to suit up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:16 am
  • C.J. McCollum scores 19 points vs. Clips
    C.J. McCollum scored 19 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Damian Lillard didn't have it tonight and McCollum carried the backcourt for scoring. He didn't turn the ball over at all in this game after turning it over twice in each of the previous three games. Expect him to flirt with 20 points the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:55 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores just 12 points vs. LAC
    Damian Lillard scored 4-of-15 from the field for 12 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Things are going to be a little easier on Lillard now that Chris Paul (hand) is out. CP3 has pretty much had his number in every game against him with the exception of Game 3. Lillard should bounce back on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:52 pm
  • Jamal Crawford scores 12 points vs. Blazers
    Jamal Crawford scored 12 points during a 98-84 loss to the Blazers on Monday, adding five rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He is going to have to be the top-scoring guard now with Chris Paul (hand) out. Crawford exploded for 30 points back on Apr. 8 when the Clippers rested most of their players against the Jazz, so expect plenty of scoring chances the rest of the way. He'll be a highly-owned player in DFS for Game 5. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:43 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 17 points vs. Blazers
    Jeff Green scored 17 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He is likely headed for a bigger role in Game 5. Chris Paul (hand) won't be playing while Blake Griffin (quad) could miss some action, as well. Green does a lot of scoring in isolation, so he shouldn't be affected negatively with the loss of CP3. He's on the radar as a DFS play. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:39 pm
  • Austin Rivers headed for more run
    Austin Rivers scored four points with two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He's probably going to start Game 5 in Los Angeles with Chris Paul (hand) likely out for the postseason. Rivers did turn in some decent starts this year, averaging 13.7 points, 2.7 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.0 treys in seven games. He'll be on the radar in DFS. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:32 pm
  • J.J. Redick plays through heel injury
    J.J. Redick scored eight points with two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He was clearly in some discomfort for this game. It looked like Redick's heel injury was going to be the biggest concern for the Clippers in this game, but Chris Paul (hand) and Blake Griffin (quad) getting hurt changed that. Even with more offensive responsibility, it is tough to count on Redick for DFS while he's hurting. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:29 pm
  • Kent Bazemore probable again for Tuesday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) is probable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Celtics.

    Advice: He'll be good to go and has been probable for the entire series. Bazemore has been active during the playoffs and should continue to flirt with his postseason averages of 13.3 points, 8.3 boards, 2.3 dimes, 1.3 steals and 1.3 treys. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:13 pm
  • Stephen Curry (knee) could miss two weeks
    The MRI on Stephen Curry's knee was negative and showed no damage with a diagnosis of a Grade 1 sprain.

    Advice: This is good news. Curry will be re-evaluated in two weeks and the Warriors will undoubtedly be very careful with their MVP. He could still be out beyond this two-week prognosis as well. The Warriors will also be rooting for the Blazers to make it a long series to give them more time off. With Curry out, it'll be Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston handling the ball more. Plus, we'll see more shots and play-making chances for Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:25 pm
  • Stephen Curry tweets about his injury
    Stephen Curry (knee) tweeted he's going to be "alright" Monday afternoon.

    Advice: This doesn't really say much except that Curry likely received his diagnosis. Curry said "all things considered" in his tweet, so it does sound like he might have at least something wrong. We'll have a clearer update soon. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:09 pm
  • Patrick Beverley not practicing
    Patrick Beverley (hamstring) did not practice on Monday and only took part of the film session.

    Advice: He was walking around OK, but walking and playing basketball against the Warriors are two different things. It would appear Beverley is going to miss the rest of the series. Jason Terry and Corey Brewer figure to play more. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:46 am
  • Patrick Beverley (hamstring) traveling for G5
    Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is traveling to Oakland for Game 5 vs. Golden State.

    Advice: Beverley will get treatment and a determination on his playing status could come down to a game-time decision prior to Wednesday's do-or-die matchup. If he's forced to sit out, James Harden would be the de facto point guard with Jason Terry likely sliding into the first five while playing more minutes than he really should. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:49 am
  • J.J. Redick expects heel to be ongoing issue
    J.J. Redick said that he expects his heel to be an ongoing issue for the remainder of the postseason.

    Advice: Redick may play a little less than usual when allowable, but the Clippers ride their starters hard and Doc Rivers will play his sharpshooter as many minutes as he can handle. If Redick is forced into limited action or not playing at any juncture, Jamal Crawford and Austin Rivers would see some additional playing time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:47 am
  • Johnson (shoulder) progressing toward return
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder surgery) is progressing toward a return, but he will not play in Monday's Game 4 vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Johnson said it's "the best he's felt" in his rehab, and even the normally cryptic Erik Spoelstra said that the guard is "pushing us into some discussions." It's hard to envision Johnson getting back out there before he goes through a full contact practice—which he has yet to do—but it's clear the guard is on the comeback trail after being pain/soreness-free for the first time this weekend. While Johnson has been ruled out of Game 4 and does not expect to play in Game 5 vs. Charlotte, he could be available after that. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:22 am
  • Nicolas Batum (ankle) will not play in Game 4
    Nicolas Batum (ankle) will not play in Monday's Game 4 vs. Miami.

    Advice: It would have been an enormous surprise had Batum been able to get back out there after sitting for just a single game, so he'll again be forced to watch from the sidelines. As a result of Batum's absence, the Hornets will stick with the same starting lineup that worked in Game 3. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:16 am
  • Stevens gushes about Marcus Smart's G4 play
    After the Celtics tied their first-round series up at 2-2, Brad Stevens gushed about Marcus Smart's play in Game 4.

    Advice: "I thought Marcus just played a great game, period," said Stevens. "And we’ve talked about it before. Marcus has had his ups and downs, but Marcus on this stage and, with his consistent work ethic and with his competitive spirit, you really trust that good things will happen. And so we trust in him, and he did a great job tonight on both ends on anybody that he was assigned to." Stevens said the team will continue rely on Smart—and Evan Turner—to be a playmaker with Isaiah Thomas playing off the ball, so expect him to play 30-plus minutes and be active on both ends, especially without Avery Bradley (hamstring) available. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:42 am
  • Report: Steph Curry could have MCL sprain
    The Warriors "early fear" is that Steph Curry sustained a right MCL sprain, a source told Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Advice: San Francisco sportscaster Mike Shumann of ABC 7 reported the same thing late on Sunday evening, so there is certainly some smoke behind this potential fire. We won't have an official diagnosis until the Warriors release Curry's MRI results, and his timetable to return will be dependent upon on the severity of the sprain if the early intel is proven accurate. We'd expect him to miss at least the remainder of the first round with the very real potential for more time off. Without Curry, Shaun Livingston, Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and every other member of the team will be forced to step up. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:24 am
  • Jeff Teague shoots 4-of-18 in Game 2 defeat
    Jeff Teague shot just 4-of-18 from the field during Sunday's Game 4 defeat, finishing with 13 points, five assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Teague hit a pair of crucial 3-pointers late in the fourth but he also orchestrated an awful final possession -- Atlanta had the ball with a chance to win in regulation, but Teague didn't pass and wound up getting blocked on a 3-point attempt. Dennis Schroder shot just 3-of-13 tonight, providing a bleak counter-point to the strong play of Boston's lead guards. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:17 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 28 points in comeback
    Isaiah Thomas followed up his career game on Friday with 28 points during Game 4, making 11-of-23 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with six assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal.

    Advice: Better yet, Thomas committed only one turnover in 43 minutes. The Hawks couldn't keep him out of the paint on Friday, and although he wasn't as successful tonight (4-of-8 from within four feet) he still made critical shots when Boston needed a lift. The All-Star guard is giving Atlanta all they can handle and more this series, averaging 28.3 points and 3.0 triples through four games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:15 pm
  • Marcus Smart sparks Celts in Game 4 comeback
    Marcus Smart came up huge in 42 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing a thrilling overtime victory with 20 points, eight rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and two steals.

    Advice: Smart even had successful defensive possessions vs. a red-hot Paul Millsap down the stretch, and his energy and timely baskets helped Boston erase a 16-point deficit to even the series 2-2. Newly-minted starter Evan Turner pitched in 17 points, seven rebounds and six assists in 45 minutes, and all signs point to Smart maintaining a critical sixth-man role for Game 5 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:08 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 23, Warriors lead 3-1
    Klay Thompson buried seven 3-pointers on his way to 23 points in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Rockets, giving the Warriors a 3-1 series lead.

    Advice: The bad news for the Warriors is that Stephen Curry could miss some time due to a sprained knee, but that will open the door for Thompson to have a larger role in the offense. Thompson was 8-of-15 from the field and added five assists, two boards and two steals, and he will look to help the Warriors advance to the second round with a win in Game 5 on Wednesday at Oracle Arena. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:00 pm
  • Shaun Livingston scores nine points in win
    Shaun Livingston scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with nine assists, five rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes in Sunday's 121-94 win over the Rockets.

    Advice: He started the game on the bench with Stephen Curry back in the lineup, but the MVP left the game at halftime due to a knee injury and Livingston was back in the first unit for the second half. It sounds like Curry could miss some time due to his sprained knee and he will have an MRI on Monday, so Livingston could have some more starts coming his way. When Livingston started Game 2 and Game 3, he averaged 16.0 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 boards and 2.5 steals, so he will be a solid option in DFS. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:55 pm
  • Stephen Curry (knee) will have an MRI Monday
    Stephen Curry (sprained knee) will have an MRI on Monday.

    Advice: Coach Steve Kerr said that Curry wanted to play in the second half, but the Warriors made the decision to hold him out which was probably the right call. Kerr didn't make it sound like he's expecting a quick return for Curry, so it's hard to imagine him playing in Game 5 on Wednesday. Hopefully we will get a timetable after the Warriors release the results of the MRI on Monday. Shaun Livingston will benefit if Curry misses time along with Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala and Klay Thompson. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:42 pm
  • Trevor Ariza held to eight points in loss
    Trevor Ariza was held to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting on Sunday vs. the Warriors, adding two boards and two steals in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He's been terrible on the offensive end this series and was shooting just 28.1 percent from the field in his previous three games. The Rockets are facing an elimination game in Golden State on Wednesday, but Ariza has just been too cold to trust in DFS. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:26 pm
  • James Harden scores 18, Rockets lose Game 4
    James Harden scored 18 points on 4-of-13 shooting with 10 assists, seven rebounds, seven steals and two 3-pointers in Sunday's blowout loss to Golden State.

    Advice: The game was tied at halftime, but the Warriors won the third quarter 40-21 and Stephen Curry (knee) didn't even play at all in the second half. This performance sums up the Rockets' season and they will need a miracle to win Game 5 in Golden State to keep the series alive even if Curry misses that contest. Expect Harden to run the offense even more if Patrick Beverley (leg) is unable to play in Game 5. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:23 pm
  • Stephen Curry (sprained knee) out for game
    Stephen Curry (sprained knee) will not return on Sunday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: He tried to warm up prior to the second half, but he didn't like how his knee felt and he went straight back to the locker room after a brief conversation with coach Steve Kerr and the training staff. Curry was reportedly in tears when the Warriors ruled him out and he will remain in the locker room for the rest of the game to get treatment. There isn't enough information right now to speculate on a timetable, but there should be an update after the game. Shaun Livingston started the second half and will now have to run the offense along with Draymond Green. Curry finished with six points on 2-of-9 shooting with five assists, one steal and one trey. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:27 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (leg) will not return Sunday
    Patrick Beverley (leg) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The Rockets ruled him out pretty quickly, so that's not a good sign. They are calling the injury a right leg strain, but there should be more details after the game. James Harden should run the offense in the second half as usual, while Jason Terry will have to pick up a lot of Beverley's minutes. He finished with two points, two boards, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:13 pm
  • Stephen Curry (knee) goes to locker room
    Stephen Curry (knee) limped to the locker room prior to halftime on Sunday vs. Houston.

    Advice: He was running back on defense when he slipped and had an awkward fall, but he did try to jog it off on the way back to the locker room (with an obvious limp). Hopefully it's nothing serious, but we'll have an update momentarily. You can check out the incident in the link below. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:03 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (leg) questionable to return
    Patrick Beverley is questionable to return to Sunday's game due to a right leg strain.

    Advice: He left the game right before halftime, so there should be another update soon. James Harden will run the point if Beverley can't return and Jason Terry will have to pick up some extra minutes as well. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:55 pm
  • Stephen Curry (ankle) will play on Sunday
    Stephen Curry (ankle) will play in Game 4 on Sunday vs. Houston.

    Advice: He made it through warmups without any problems and was even launching half-court shots. Warriors coach Steve Kerr mentioned that he will be watching Curry's minutes closely in case he looks winded, but his owners should obviously still start him. We'll have an update after the game. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:53 am
  • Steve Kerr still expects Stephen Curry to play
    Warriors coach Steve Kerr is still expecting Stephen Curry (ankle) to play in Game 4 vs. Houston on Sunday.

    Advice: Curry is officially listed as probable and will play barring a setback in pre-game warmups. The Warriors will likely keep an eye on his minutes, but his owners can safely deploy him in active lineups again. Shaun Livingston will head back to the bench on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:07 am
  • Batum will not rule himself out for Game 4
    Nicolas Batum (ankle/foot) will not rule himself out for Game 4 on Monday and the Hornets listed him as questionable.

    Advice: He said on Saturday that his sprained left ankle is "surprisingly much better," and added on Sunday that it has continued to improve. Batum will get more treatment around the clock, so we should have an official update at the morning shootaround. If he is able to play, both Frank Kaminsky and Jeremy Lin will lose some appeal in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:55 am
  • Kevin Martin (illness) ruled out for Sunday
    Kevin Martin (illness) will not play in Game 4 on Sunday vs. Memphis.

    Advice: K-Mart said that he's feeling better, but it sounds like the Spurs just want to be cautious. He played an average of 14.5 minutes in the first two games of the series, but keep in mind that they were both blowouts. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:27 am
  • Nicolas Batum says he is doing 'much better'
    Nicolas Batum said that his sprained left ankle is "surprisingly much better."

    Advice: "Surprisingly much better than when it happened like three days ago," Batum said of his ankle. "I improved like a lot. The swelling is way down so I will just keep working on it with like four or five hours of treatment everyday until I get back as fast as possible on the court." Batum is still dealing with some swelling, but he told the trainers to do everything they can to make sure he has a chance to play in Game 4 on Monday. If he is able to return, both Frank Kaminsky and Jeremy Lin will lose value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:04 am
  • Damian Lillard scores 32 points in win vs. LA
    Damian Lillard matched his playoff career-high 32 points during a 96-88 win over the Clippers in Game 3 on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Finally. Lillard was not at his best in the first two games in these playoffs, averaging just 19.0 points, 5.5 dimes, 0.5 steals and 1.5 treys. Chris Paul had Lillard's number for most of the season, making just 32.4 percent from the field during the regular season against the Clippers. Still, Lillard should be ready to roll in Game 4 as the Blazers try to tie this thing up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 27 points in win
    C.J. McCollum scored 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He had his coming-out party last postseason against the Grizzlies. McCollum received his Most Improved Player trophy at tonight's game and he was all business to set the stage for a must-win game. He has a little added motivation against the Clippers due to the memorable clerical error from the Blazers against coach Doc Rivers earlier this season. Expect another nice line from C.J. at home on Game 4. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:36 pm
  • Jamal Crawford scores 19 points in loss
    Jamal Crawford scored 19 points with three rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 30 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was terrible in the first half and turned it on late. Crawford made 1-of-6 from the field to start the game and picked it up down the stretch like he usually does. He was the first player ever to win three Sixth Man of the Year awards and has plenty of miles left on his tires at age 36. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:18 pm
  • Paul George scores 19 points in win
    Paul George scored 19 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He kept his word to trust his teammates more in this game. George wasn't terrible with efficiency, making 6-of-16 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line in this win. He should be a decent DFS play almost any night, but his price has really been on the rise. It won't be easy for him to match his expectations after Game 1 and 2. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Kent Bazemore listed as probable again
    Kent Bazemore (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He's fine and the Hawks have put him on the injury report in all three games. Bazemore has been very active, so expect him to have another solid effort on the stat sheet in Boston. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:09 pm
  • Stephen Curry officially listed as probable
    Stephen Curry (ankle) officially listed as probable for Sunday's Game 4 in Houston.

    Advice: There is still some discomfort for the reigning MVP. At this point, it looks like he would need a setback in shootaround or in pre-game warmups on Sunday to keep him out. Curry hasn't really had any issues since his injury last weekend, but the Warriors are just being very cautious. If he does play, he might have his minutes monitored. He still might be a bit risky to use in DFS, but obviously Curry could erupt in just 27-32 minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:42 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas will play in Game 4 vs. ATL
    Isaiah Thomas will not be suspended for Game 4 against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: The NBA appears to have deemed Thomas' shot to the head of Dennis Schroder an accident. This is huge news for the Celtics because Thomas is the biggest part of the offense. He'll have a tough time repeating his 42-point gem from Friday, but expect him to get plenty of shots. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:43 am
  • Kevin Martin dealing with an illness
    Kevin Martin is dealing with an illness and will not return on Friday.

    Advice: The Spurs were trying to take some pressure of their key rotation players, but Martin won't be able to help much tonight. He should be OK for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 pm
  • Evan Turner scores 17 points in win
    Evan Turner got the start on Friday against the Hawks, scoring 17 points with two rebounds, seven assists, five steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He played some more minutes at the two with the Celtics going bigger thanks to the output from Jonas Jerebko. Turner's play-making has been a big part of the offense and his defense has vastly improved this season as well. Expect a sizable role the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:40 pm
  • Marcus Smart scores 11 points in win
    Marcus Smart made 3-of-6 from the field for 11 points with three rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: It was a big improvement from his 1-of-11 from the field in Game 2. Smart's minutes should continue to be in the low 30s while Avery Bradley (hamstring) is out and he continues to get most of his minutes at the two. He'll be in play for DFS on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:14 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 23 points in loss to BOS
    Jeff Teague scored a team-high 23 points during a 111-103 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers.

    Advice: The Hawks pulled off a comeback when they were down 20 points in the first half, but there was just too much Isaiah Thomas down the stretch. Teague has been effective in two of the three games with more playing time than in the regular season. He should have another chance at a big game on Sunday. Of course, his defense will have to be better. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:04 pm
  • Kent Bazemore score 20 in active 34 minutes
    Kent Bazemore was active in his 34 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, making 8-of-19 from the field for 20 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was forcing a lot of shots and perhaps the Hawks should have got the ball inside to Al Horford, who finished with eight points, 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals and four blocks. Bazemore has been terrific for most of the season with a few cold streaks, and now coach Mike Budenholzer is leaning on him a lot. He'll be a solid DFS play on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:01 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 17 points vs. Boston
    Kyle Korver fouled out in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was in foul trouble for basically the entire game. Korver was on fire in the fourth quarter to help bring the Hawks back after trailing by 20 in the first half. This was also his second good game in a row with 17 points in Game 2. Fantasy owners can start to have some confidence in using him again. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:55 pm
  • J.R. Smith scores just nine points
    J.R. Smith made 3-of-9 from the field for nine points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

    Advice: He basically had nowhere to go but down after a terrific 21-point, seven-trey outing in Game 2. Smith only attempted five shots from the field in his final three quarters to finish with an uncharacteristic 11.5 usage rate in this game. Smith will be a hit-and-miss scorer in basically every game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:14 pm
  • Evan Turner getting the start
    Evan Turner will get the start at shooting guard on Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: He's logged the vast majority of his minutes at small forward in this series with even the occasional minutes at power forward. The starting lineup of Turner, Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson have not played together at all in this series and have played only 33 possessions during the regular season. This is good news for Turner to get a new avenue for minutes at a new position. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:29 pm
  • Marcus Smart, Jared Sullinger to the bench
    Marcus Smart and Jared Sullinger will move to the bench on Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: Smart was a nightmare on Tuesday, making 1-of-11 from the field. He is still going to have to play minutes over 30 tonight because the Celtics will need him on Jeff Teague. Smart is still in play as a DFS guy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:22 pm
  • Tyler Johnson out for Game 3
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) will not play against the Hornets in Game 3.

    Advice: He said it's too earlier to tell on Game 4. Johnson is working on his strength and it would be a surprise to see him play in the first round. Josh Richardson will continue to carry the offensive load off the bench as the Heat play their starters big minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:21 pm
  • J.J. Redick (bruised heel) is feeling better
    J.J. Redick said his bruised heel felt better after Game 2 than it did in Game 1.

    Advice: He is going to play in Game 3, but there is some talk of his minutes taking a small hit. If that is true, there should be a few minutes going to Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford. There really isn't much fantasy fallout from this news. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:09 pm
  • J.J. Redick (heel) could see reduced minutes?
    Clippers coach Doc Rivers may try to reduce J.J. Redick's workload because his heel is still bothering him.

    Advice: "Yeah, it definitely has an impact, I think with his movement, for sure," Rivers said. "I think as the game goes on I’m trying to figure out how to rest him." Redick will be held out of practice prior to Game 3 on Saturday, and he admitted that his heal is very sore. "It’s something that I have to continue to monitor and take care of. To be honest, it’s very sore. And after Sunday’s game it was pretty sore the last few days. So it’s just something that, hopefully, will heal. But it’s going to take time." Redick scored 17 points in both Game 1 and Game 2 and played around 27 minutes in each, so it will be interesting to see how Rivers handles his minutes on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:17 am
  • Shaun Livingston hopeful to stay with GSW
    Shaun Livingston is hoping to stay with the Warriors beyond this season.

    Advice: "I want to stay here as long as I can," Livingston said. "It’s a unique and special situation. A lot of guys including myself, I want to be here for as long as I possibly can depending on the contract situation." The Warriors have a team option for the 2016-17 season, but Warriors GM Bob Meyers strongly hinted that the team will pick up the option. "It’s a good deal for us, and we see him in our future," Meyers said. The backup PG has thrived in two straight starts with 16 points in each outing, but he could be back on the bench for Game 4 on Sunday if Stephen Curry (ankle) is cleared. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:02 am
  • C.J. McCollum wins Most Improved Player Award
    C.J. McCollum has officially been named the Most Improved Player of the Year for the 2015-16 season.

    Advice: He was the runaway winner, finishing with 101 first place votes with Kemba Walker finishing in second place with seven votes. "CJ worked extremely hard to have the season that he had this year," Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. "His work ethic and commitment to improve is the reason he is deserving of this award. He is an example to everyone what can be accomplished with diligent practice and a belief that you can always get better." McCollum finished the regular season with averages of 20.8 points, 4.3 assists, 3.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 2.5 3-pointers, returning top-50 value in standard leagues. He's a stud and we hope you listened to us and drafted him this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:05 am
  • Shaun Livingston scores 16 points in loss
    Shaun Livingston drew his second straight start on Thursday vs. the Rockets and looked great again, scoring 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five boards, three assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Klay Thompson recently implied that Livingston is the best backup PG in the league, so he certainly made a strong argument tonight. Livingston also scored 16 points in Game 2 with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals, but it sounds like coach Steve Kerr is planning on having Stephen Curry (ankle) back for Game 4. If Curry plays, Livingston can't be trusted in fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:15 pm
  • Klay Thompson shoots 7-of-20 in loss to HOU
    Klay Thompson struggled in Thursday's 97-96 loss to the Rockets, scoring 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting from the field with eight rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: With Stephen Curry (ankle) on the shelf, Thompson's owners were expecting a lot more from him tonight. He missed all seven of his 3-pointers, breaking a streak of 31 playoff games with at least one trey which was the second longest active streak behind Curry (41). Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:02 pm
  • Trevor Ariza held to seven points in win
    Trevor Ariza was held to just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting vs. the Warriors on Thursday, adding five boards, one assist, three steals and one block in 42 minutes.

    Advice: He defense has been great, but Ariza is in a serious slump on the offensive end. He's now shooting a brutal 28.1 percent from the field in this series, so he really has nowhere to go but up. He will look to bounce back in Game 4 on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:57 pm
  • Harden hits game winner, Rockets take Game 3
    James Harden hit the game-winning shot with just a few seconds left on the clock in Thursday's 97-96 win over the Warriors in Game 3.

    Advice: The Rockets now trail the Warriors 2-1 with Game 4 coming on Sunday in Houston. Harden only hit 11-of-26 shots tonight, but he posted a massive line of 35 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in 44 minutes while hitting 9-of-11 from the line. He's arguably the best option in DFS right now because the Rockets can't afford to take him out of the game. He will need to be even more impressive in Game 4 with the Warriors expected to get Stephen Curry (ankle) back. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Paul George scores 25 w/ 10 rebounds in loss
    Paul George scored 25 points with 10 rebounds in Thursday's 101-85 loss to the Raptors, adding six assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

    Advice: The Pacers are now losing the series 2-1, so Game 4 on Saturday in Indiana is basically a must-win game. As for PG-13, he's feasting against the Raptors and was coming into tonight's game with averages of 30.5 points, 4.0 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.5 steals and 3.0 3-pointers in the first two games of the series. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:07 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (foot) ruled out for Game 3
    Nicolas Batum has been diagnosed with a left foot strain and has officially been ruled out of Game 3 vs. the Heat on Saturday.

    Advice: An MRI confirmed the diagnosis, and the report from the Hornets adds that Batum will undergo treatment before his status will be determined for Game 4. With Charlotte already down by two games, this is a tough blow for the Hornets. Expect Jeremy Lin to benefit the most moving forward, while we could also see more traditional lineups with Marvin Williams playing more small forward. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:19 pm
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) probable for Game 3
    Kent Bazemore (right knee stiffness) is probable to play in Game 3 on Friday.

    Advice: Bazemore has not looked limited by the knee injury at all during his first two games, so it would be surprising to see him hit the sidelines on Friday night. Plan on having him available. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:23 pm
  • J.J. Redick won't practice prior to Game 3
    Doc Rivers said that J.J. Redick (bruised left heel) will not practice prior to Game 3.

    Advice: It's not uncommon for guys to take a practice off here and there during the postseason to rest, and there's currently no reason to believe Redick is in any danger of spending Saturday's Game 3 on the sidelines. Redick has been solid for the first two games of the Clippers' first-round series, owning averages of 17.0 points and 2.0 triples per game on 55.6 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:46 pm
  • Stevens says he's contemplating lineup change
    Brad Stevens said that he's contemplating making a change to his starting lineup for Game 3 on Friday, but he's not yet made a final decision.

    Advice: Evan Turner has supplanted Jared Sullinger in the starting five to begin the second half of both Game 1 and Game 2, so if Stevens does end up going through with the change, Turner for Sullinger will be the likely switch. Sullinger has struggled in a big way during Boston's first-round series, and a move to the bench won't do his fantasy value any favors. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:49 am
  • Jamal Crawford accepts 3rd Sixth Man Award
    Jamal Crawford accepted his third Sixth Man of the Year award on Wednesday, going on to post 11 points, four assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Crawford has the most Sixth Man awards in NBA history, eclipsing two-time winners Kevin McHale, Detlef Schrempf and Ricky Pierce. He wasn't the only Clippers' reserve guard to merit attention tonight, as Austin Rivers aided a solid bench effort with nine points in 21 minutes, helping L.A. head into Game 3 with a wave of momentum. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 pm
  • J.J. Redick gets hot in 1st quarter, as usual
    J.J. Redick's bruised heel didn't seem to bother him on Wednesday as he picked up 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting with three 3-pointers and one rebound in just 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Clippers frequently look for Redick as an early scoring option but he tends to take a backseat as the game progresses -- he ranked 49th in scoring overall this season at 16.3 ppg, but was 20th in first-quarter scoring (5.6 points in the quarter). True to form, he scored 11 of his 17 points in the first frame tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:37 pm
  • Damian Lillard shoots 6-of-22 in Game 2 loss
    The Clippers contained Damian Lillard during Game 2, as he finished with 17 points on 6-of-22 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, four turnovers and zero 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: L.A.'s defensive gameplan is centered around stopping Lillard. "They go as Damian goes," Austin Rivers said after Game 1. "Our focus was to stop him and limit everybody else as well." He's being trapped on many possessions but the biggest issue is Chris Paul's individual defense, which forces Dame to work hard for looks he usually gets at will. Whether Portland plays him off-ball more often or finds another way to spring him loose, they need their leading scorer to heat up at home on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:23 pm
  • J.R. Smith w/ seven of Cavs record 20 triples
    J.R. Smith drained seven 3-pointers en route to 21 points on Wednesday, as the Cavs earned a 2-0 series lead vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Smith added five rebounds and his quick-trigger perimeter shooting repeatedly took the wind out of the Pistons' sails tonight. The Cavs poured in 20-of-38 triples tonight, setting a franchise playoff record and tying the NBA playoff record, a barrage that turned a tight game at halftime in a rout by the fourth quarter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 pm
  • Tyler Johnson (shoulder) still out
    Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is out for Game 2 on Wednesday.

    Advice: There is no new update on Johnson. Josh Richardson may have Wally Pipp'd Johnson as the top combo guard on the roster anyway, so there's no need to rush Johnson back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:19 pm
  • Marcus Smart (ribs) should practice Thursday
    Marcus Smart (ribs) is expected to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: If he does practice, he'll be ready to roll in Game 3 on Friday. Smart shot a disastrous 1-of-11 from the field in Game 2 as all three starting perimeter players couldn't hit shots. Smart will be very important to help defend Jeff Teague and has basically slotted into Avery Bradley's minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:10 pm
  • Marcus Smart (ribs) plans to play in Game 3
    Marcus Smart (bruised rib) said that he plans to play in Game 3 vs. the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: The Celtics initially called the injury a right hip contusion and he briefly checked out of the game during the first quarter, but he appeared to be fine the rest of the game. Smart will be re-evaluated on Wednesday and admitted that he had some tests, so expect the Celtics to provide an update at that time. He moved into the starting lineup tonight in place of Avery Bradley (hamstring), but he didn't play well and finished with just three points on 1-of-11 shooting with three assists, two boards, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes. His shooting needs a lot of work. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:32 pm
  • Evan Turner starts 3Q, scores 12 points
    Evan Turner started the third quarter of Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, finishing with 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting.

    Advice: The versatile forward also dished out three assists with five boards and one block, and this was the second game in a row that he started the second half. Turner played 33 minutes tonight after playing 34 minutes in Game 1, so he's going to play a massive role in this series with Avery Bradley (hamstring) considered doubtful to play in round one. He's worth starting in all formats right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:19 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 13 in win Tuesday
    Jeff Teague scored 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting with six assists, one board, one block, two steals and one 3-pointer in Game 2 vs. the Celtics on Tuesday.

    Advice: The game got out of hand pretty quickly, so Teague only played 27 minutes tonight. He had 23 points with 12 assists in Game 1 and it's clear that the Celtics are going to have a tough time keeping him in check with Avery Bradley (hamstring) on the shelf. Teague will continue to be an excellent option as this series shifts to Boston for Game 3 and Game 4. Dennis Schroder did leave the game late with an ankle issue, so Teague could be looking at a few more minutes moving forward as well. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:02 pm
  • Kent Bazemore held to five points in win
    Kent Bazemore was held to five points in Game 2 vs. Boston on Tuesday, shooting just 2-of-14 from the field and 1-of-5 from the 3-point line.

    Advice: He was unstoppable in Game 1 with 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting, but he fell back to earth tonight. Bazemore still played 29 minutes and also added nine rebounds, four assists and two steals, so he gets a pass here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:57 pm
  • Kyle Korver looks great in win Tuesday
    Kyle Korver looked great in Tuesday's win over Boston, scoring 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Yes, this is the same player that scored two points on 1-of-10 shooting in Game 1. Korver looked like a new man tonight and the Celtics didn't have an answer for him with Avery Bradley (hamstring) on the shelf. Korver was held to single-digit points in his previous four games, so it's important not to overreact to this line. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:51 pm
  • Turner starts 3rd quarter, Sullinger to bench
    Evan Turner started the third quarter of Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks in place of Jared Sullinger.

    Advice: Turner started the third quarter of Game 1 as well (in place of Amir Johnson), and coach Brad Stevens must be thinking that he has to play more small ball if his team will have a chance in this series. Turner had 10 points, eight rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block in Game 1 and looks great tonight as well. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:30 pm
  • Marcus Smart (finger) will start in Game 2
    Marcus Smart (finger) will move into the starting lineup for Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday, with Avery Bradley (hamstring) unavailable.

    Advice: Smart is the most obvious choice to move into the starting five sans Bradley, and head coach Brad Stevens said that both Smart and Evan Turner will earn 30-plus minutes during their Game 2 matchup. Both Smart and Turner are worth a look in DFS, with Turner offering a bit more upside. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:32 pm
  • Evan Turner not sure on Celtics future
    Evan Turner said he's not sure what will happen when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    Advice: Turner has resurrected his game in Boston, but isn't sure if he'll be there beyond the 2015-16 season. "If we were playing for free and everything, I would for sure want to be here long term," Turner said. "At the same time, you have to do what's best for your career and family." Turner is in for a bigger payday this summer after averaging 10.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and 1.0 steals off the Celtics bench and is in for a bigger role now that Avery Bradley (hamstring) is likely out for Round 1 of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 am
  • Thompson says Shaun Livingston great backup
    Klay Thompson said Shaun Livingston is as good of a backup point guard as you can get.

    Advice: Livingston scored 16 points to go with two rebounds, six assists, and two steals in a spot start for Stephen Curry (ankle) in Monday's Game 2 win over Houston and Thompson was impressed with his play. "I'm mesmerized by Shaun Livingston," Thompson said. "You can't ask for a better back-up point guard in this league." We'll have to wait and see if Curry is available for Game 3 on Thursday, but Livingston will again be in for big minutes if the reigning NBA MVP can't suit up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:50 am
  • Jamal Crawford will win Sixth Man Award
    Jamal Crawford will win the Sixth Man of the Year Award, according to Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer.

    Advice: Crawford will become the first three-time recipient of the award after finishing the 2015-16 season with 14.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers. While the 36-year-old is no longer the player he once was, he can still score in bunches off the bench and the award is well-deserved. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:21 am
  • Klay Thompson scores 34; Curry-less Dubs win
    Klay Thompson matched his playoff career-high 34 points during a 115-106 win over the Rockets on Monday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Who needs Stephen Curry (ankle) anyway? Thompson made 15 free throws in this win, which is the most he's had in any NBA game. He was really good off the dribble in this game as more of a play-maker for the Warriors. If Curry isn't ready to play on Thursday, Thompson will get another big chance to produce. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:02 pm
  • Shaun Livingston steps up, scores 16 points
    Shaun Livingston scored 16 points in a spot start on Monday against the Rockets, adding two rebounds, six assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He made 7-of-9 from the field and killed the Rockets in the paint. Livingston was playing on the ball a lot more while he was really effective on his off-ball cuts. The Warriors might as well rest Stephen Curry (ankle) again on Thursday, so there might be minutes available for Livingston again. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:49 pm
  • James Harden scores 28 points in 40 minutes
    James Harden scored 28 points during a Game 2 115-106 loss to the Warriors on Monday, adding two rebounds, 11 assists, one block, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

    Advice: His defense was really bad in this game, but his offense was better. After not going to the line at all in Game 1, Harden made 13-of-15 from the charity stripe in this game. This series now goes back to Houston, which isn't the best news for Harden. He actually shot the ball better on the road this season with similar stats across the board. There is still some concern of garbage time, especially if Stephen Curry (ankle) plays. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:39 pm
  • Patrick Beverley scores 13 points vs. GSW
    Patrick Beverley scored 13 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He wasn't benched in this game. Beverley wasn't the problem for the Rockets in this game and he's going to play minutes in the 30s in Game 3 and 4. He's still not going to have a high enough upside to use in tournaments for DFS. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:33 pm
