  • Kerr: Klay Thompson expected to be ready
    Coach Steve Kerr said "all is going well" with Klay Thompson (concussion) and expects him to be ready for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: There's no word of if he went through the protocol yet. Once he's symptom free, he'll do some work on a stationary bike before doing more rigorous exercise. For now, it sounds like Klay should be ready to play with time to spare. 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

  • James Harden wants help at the guard spots
    James Harden said he will have a conversation with GM Daryl Morey about bolstering the Rockets depth at the guard position.

    Advice: Houston is pretty thin behind James Harden and Patrick Beverley, and that was really put on display when Beverley went down, as the Rockets were forced to give big minutes to veterans Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni. Corey Brewer is a quality wing player, but he's not a guy that can give a second-unit much of a lift on offense, and with him set to become an unrestricted free agent there are no guarantees he's retained. It'll be interesting to see what Morey can put together this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Josh Smith would like to return to Houston
    Josh Smith said that he would like to return with the Rockets next season.

    Advice: "You never know in free agency what may occur," said Smith who will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. "The city of Houston and this team has definitely embraced me for my individuality and the way I play the game. It would be great to do something special for the city and for this team." Smith actually played very well for the Rockets after being waived by the Pistons earlier in the season, and he was a major component to Houston's improbable Game 6 comeback win over the Clippers in the second-round. It'll be interesting to see where he lands as a free agent. Rotoworld.com
