Player Notes

  • 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.

  • Blake Griffin responds to the Clippers curse
    Blake Griffin responded to a question about the "Clippers curse" after the Clippers' Game 7 loss to the Rockets in the Western Conference Semifinals.

    Advice: "The Clipper curse when I first got here was No. 1 picks getting hurt, not working out; their draft picks not working out, not making the playoffs, not having winning seasons," Griffin said. "No one talked about not getting past the second round. Not a single soul talked about that, but now, that’s what everybody talks about. Just like the last one, we’re going to bust through this one." Looking at the numbers (25.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game), Griffin was not bothered by any sort of curse during the Clippers' playoff run, and he'll be an obvious early-round selection in next year's fantasy drafts.

  • Report: Millsap may need surgery on shoulder?
    Paul Millsap may require surgery on his sprained right shoulder this offseason, according to sources of Howard Beck.

    Advice: The shoulder injury caused Millsap to miss five games back in early April, and it reportedly never fully healed. This perhaps could explain why Millsap is shooting just 40.8 percent from the field this postseason, a stark contrast from the 47.6 percent clip that he shot during the regular-season. It'll be interesting to see if Millsap does indeed go under the knife when the offseason hits, and this is a story we'll be following closely. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Nets may shop Plumlee this offseason?
    The Nets may explore the marketplace for Mason Plumlee this offseason, according to sources of Marc Stein.

    Advice: Plumlee's trade value isn't great right now, and with his yearly salary very affordable, it wouldn't make much sense for them to move him. We'll continue to follow this story closely over the course of the offseason, but at this point, it doesn't seem likely Plumlee will be the guy who is sent elsewhere. Jarrett Jack, Joe Johnson, and Deron Williams have all popped up in the rumor mill as trade candidates, and they are the most likely players to be dealt. Plumlee's fantasy value isn't great playing behind Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Love cleared to travel with Cavaliers
    Kevin Love (shoulder) has been cleared to travel with the Cavaliers after having his shoulder evaluated.

    Advice: Love had his shoulder evaluated in New York and will now be able stop wearing a sling as he travels with the team for the remainder of the postseason. While this news doesn't change the fact that Love will miss the rest of the playoffs, it's good news for his fantasy owners in dynasty leagues as it means his recovery is going as planned.
