Player Notes

  • Emmanuel Mudiay discusses his rookie season
    Emmanuel Mudiay said that "things really slowed down" for him toward the end of his rookie season.

    Advice: Most rookie PGs have some growing pains in the NBA, and Mudiay is no exception. He shot just 36.4 percent from the field and 67.0 percent from the line, though both marks improved considerably after the All-Star break. He also reduced his turnovers from 3.5 per game (pre-break) to 2.7 (post-break). He should be a popular DFS play this year, and is worth a look in any format if you don't mind the lousy percentages.

  • Wolves' starting guards not written in stone
    Tom Thibodeau didn't rule out starting Kris Dunn alongside Ricky Rubio this season.

    Advice: "We’re going to get a lot of those questions answered in the preseason," he said. "I like guys who can play multiple positions, I like different combinations. There are times when you play two point guards together. I did that a lot in Chicago, just the speed of the game changes." Dunn could start the season as a reserve behind Rubio and Zach LaVine, but we'll have a better feel for the rotations once training camp gets underway. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:41 pm
  • Patrick Beverley limited at practice again
    Patrick Beverley (cut foot) will sit out of the contact portion of practice on Sunday.

    Advice: He will go through some drills, but the Rockets obviously won't push him during the preseason. Beverley aslo missed practice on Saturday, but he's expected to be cleared on Monday or Tuesday. The injury isn't a concern for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:33 am
  • Bird says Jeff Teague's knee is fine
    Larry Bird said that Jeff's Teague knee has been fine so far.

    Advice: "In the workouts, he looks fine," Bird said. "He’s been playing for the last week or two, and that’s encouraging. When you start two-a-days, things can change, but [by] all indications, he looks pretty good." With the Pacers expected to get out and run this season, Teague will have to get his legs under him pretty quickly with the season just a little over a month away. Teague is playing for a new deal and the 28-year-old PG will be a nice mid-round pick despite lining up next to two ball-dominant guys in Paul George and Monta Ellis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:45 am
  • Monta Ellis won't run the offense as much
    According to Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star, Monta Ellis isn't expected to handle the ball as much this year.

    Advice: Ellis had a 21.0 percent usage rate last season and his 13.8 points per game was his lowest scoring average since his rookie season. Ellis will have a lot of trouble matching the 4.7 assists per game that he had last year due to the arrival of Jeff Teague, and his scoring opportunities could be limited while playing with Indiana's revamped starting lineup. He barely returned top-75 value in standard leagues last season, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect too much from him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 am
