Player Notes

  • Joakim Noah, Bulls having 'positive dialogue'
    The Bulls are reportedly having a "positive dialogue" with impending free agent Joakim Noah.

    Advice: It was recently reported that Joakim told teammates he was ready to leave Chicago due to concerns about the team's front office. His agent quickly refuted that report, and now, "Those close to Noah ... are still hopeful that he will be able to work out an agreement to stay in Chicago long term." A lot of this is posturing and we won't know which way Noah is truly leaning until free agency begins in earnest. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm

  • Channing Frye plays 13 minutes off bench
    Channing Frye came off the bench on Wednesday for seven points, three rebounds and one block in 13 minutes of action.

    Advice: Tyronn Lue hinted that he'd give Frye extended playing time in Game 5, but he logged only six minutes in the first half and sat out a meaningless fourth quarter. Frye continues to serve as Cleveland's backup center, presenting a tough matchup for Bismack Biyombo and Jonas Valanciunas, so he should once again log 18-22 minutes during Friday's Game 6.

  • Kevin Love scores 25 points in blowout win
    Kevin Love (left knee) finished Game 5 with 25 points on 8-of-10 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs, hitting three 3-pointers with two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in just 24 minutes.

    Advice: Love was awful in his previous two games, shooting 5-of-23 from the field, and he didn't even play in the fourth quarter of Game 4 -- he sat out the fourth again tonight, but only because of the lopsided score. He played with renewed energy tonight, scoring 12 points on 4-of-4 shooting in the first quarter alone, and could have had a much bigger line if it weren't for garbage time. Love's reemergence is a terrific sign for the Cavs, who are now one victory away from the Finals. Follow the link below to enjoy one of Love's patented full-court outlet passes.

  • Paul Millsap leads All-Defensive Second Team
    Paul Millsap, Paul George, Hassan Whiteside, Tony Allen and Jimmy Butler were named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team on Wednesday.

    Advice: Surprisingly, Millsap wasn't really even close to making the first team with only 11 first-team votes. While Hassan Whiteside led the NBA in blocks, the Heat started out as a better defense while he was off the court earlier in the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:10 pm
  • Serge Ibaka scores 17 points in win Tuesday
    Serge Ibaka scored 17 points in Tuesday's win over the Warriors, shooting 7-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: Steven Adams was playing through a tweaked ankle and Enes Kanter wasn't producing, so Ibaka had to step up tonight and he didn't disappoint. This was his second strong performance in a row and he added seven rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer, outplaying all of Golden State's bigs in the process. After losing minutes to Kanter in the series against San Antonio, Ibaka has played 30 or more minutes in all four games in the Western Conference Finals. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:10 pm
