  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) ruled out Monday
    Kawhi Leonard (ankle) will not play in Game 4 on Monday vs. the Warriors

    Advice: He was never expected to play and was previously considered doubtful. With the Spurs trailing the Warriors 3-0, this could be the end of Leonard's season. Expect to see a lot of Jonathon Simmons tonight with Kyle Anderson picking up some extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:18 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (left knee) will play Monday
    Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) will play in Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: Zaza Pachulia (heel) remains questionable. Iguodala was originally considered probable after logging 19 minutes in Game 3, but with the Warriors holding a comfortable 3-0 series lead, they may limit his workload again tonight. Fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check while he's limited. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:46 am
  • Manu Ginobili unsure of future in NBA
    Manu Ginobili said he still hasn't decided if he will retire at the end of the season.

    Advice: "I’m going to go game by game," Ginobili said. "We’ll see if [Monday] is the last one of the season. We hope that it’s not, and that we have a few more. Once it’s over, then I’ll start wondering what the future brings." With the Spurs facing an elimination game in San Antonio tonight, there's a very real chance that this could be his last dance at the AT&T Center. Ginobili had arguably his best game of the season in Game 3 with 21 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in just 18 minutes, but the Spurs will need more of that Manu magic with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) expected to sit out again.

  • Stephen Curry says his elbow is fine
    Stephen Curry said that his right (shooting) elbow is fine.

    Advice: "It’s fine, it’s kind of been banged up for a while," Curry said after Game 3. "Landing on the floor was kind of hard, but it doesn’t affect my performance or shot or anything like that." Curry was grabbing his elbow several times on Saturday, but he continues to light it up in the playoffs with 27.9 points per game on 49.2 percent shooting. He also banged knees with Dewayne Dedmon during Game 3 and was walking with a slight limp at shootaround, but he'll be good to go for tonight's Game 4. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:16 am
  • Gerald Green logs seven minutes off bench
    Gerald Green shifted to the Celtics' bench on Sunday, posting five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in seven minutes.

    Advice: Green started Game 2 but came off the bench to begin the third quarter, telegraphing his demotion tonight. Brad Stevens continues to search for winning combinations in this series and he found some tonight, as the Celts pulled off an improbable 111-108 road win without Isaiah Thomas. Green's lack of activity in the victory doesn't bode well for Game 4. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm
  • Deron Williams goes scoreless in nine minutes
    Deron Williams failed to score in nine minutes of action during Sunday's Game 3 loss to the visiting Celtics.

    Advice: Williams is now averaging 2.0 points on combined 2-of-11 shooting in the series, while averaging 12.7 minutes off the bench. Richard Jefferson was also scoreless in four minutes, and Kyle Korver had just three points on 1-of-5 shooting, while Iman Shumpert chipped in six points, four boards and two assists. Channing Frye was a DNP-CD tonight and there's simply no way to trust the Cavs' reserves as DFS options. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:45 pm
  • Marcus Smart posts 27/7/5 in Game 3 victory
    Marcus Smart started Game 3 in place of Isaiah Thomas (hip), scoring a career-high 27 points on 8-of-14 FGs, including seven 3-pointers, with seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 41 minutes.

    Advice: Smart scored 20+ points just four times during the regular season, while shooting 35.9 percent from the field, and he chose an ideal time to break out offensively. Brad Stevens admitted that with Smart starting in place of Thomas the Celtics are "a little bit bigger across the board [defensively]," and they limited the Cavs' high-powered offense to a relatively low 108 points tonight. Backup PG Terry Rozier played just eight minutes tonight, and Smart should have a massive role again on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Celts win as Avery Bradley hits buzzer-beater
    Avery Bradley hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left on Sunday, finishing with 20 points in the Celtics' 111-108 Game 3 victory.

    Advice: Bradley's final shot bounced around the rim a few times before dropping through the hoop, a fortuitous time-waster that prevented the Cavs from getting off another shot. He didn't shoot well overall, at 8-of-23 from the field, but he added four assists, three rebounds and two steals without any turnovers in 42 minutes. With Isaiah Thomas (hip) out of commission, Bradley's production is as critical as ever for the Celtics' playoff hopes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 pm
  • Gerald Green coming off bench for Game 3
    Gerald Green will come off the Celtics bench for Game 3 on Sunday.

    Advice: Green didn't start the second half during Friday's blowout loss, so this isn't a big surprise. Amir Johnson will earn the start tonight and it's unclear how many minutes Green will see with the second unit, but he's a dubious option in DFS leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) probable for Game 4
    Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) is being listed as probable for Monday's Game 4 in San Antonio.

    Advice: Iguodala logged 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday despite the sore knee, and that's likely where his minutes will be for Game 4. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to Monday's tip. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:33 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) doubtful for Game 4
    Spurs coach Gregg Popovich hinted that Kawhi Leonard (ankle) will not play in Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: "If he's unable to play yesterday, I don't think there's going to be a miraculous healing by tomorrow," Popovich said at Sunday's practice. Popovich added that "it wouldn't make much sense" to play Leonard at less than 100 percent, especially with his team trailing 3-0. Jonathon Simmons and Kyle Anderson will pick up Leonard's minutes and will try to help the Spurs avoid a series sweep. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:25 am
  • Isaiah Thomas to meet specialists on Monday
    Isaiah Thomas (hip) will begin meeting with specialists on Monday.

    Advice: Thomas was ruled out of the postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear, but he won't have a treatment plan set in stone until he meets with his doctors. Coach Brad Stevens said surgery is an option, so Thomas could be looking a lengthy rehab this summer. Marcus Smart will start Game 3 vs. Cleveland in Thomas' absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:34 am
  • Marcus Smart to draw the start in Game 3
    Marcus Smart will draw the start at point guard in Game 3 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

    Advice: No surprise here, as Smart started the second half of Game 2 when Isaiah Thomas (hip) left the game for good. Smart isn't in a rhythm right now and is shooting 34.6 percent from the field in the playoffs, but his minutes will likely be in the high 30s as he looks to contain Kyrie Irving -- he said wants to force Irving to be more of a facilitator. In addition to Smart, expect a heavier workload for Terry Rozier. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:23 am
  • P.J. Tucker on the Wolves radar?
    ESPN's Darren Wolfson said that he has heard Minnesota is "very much" on P.J. Tucker's radar.

    Advice: The 32-year-old veteran will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and it will be tough for the Raptors to bring him back to Toronto with Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka also hitting the open market. The Wolves could definitely use some of Tucker's 3-point shooting and defense on the wings, so this report makes sense. He will have a number of suitors this summer, but a move away from Toronto would likely be good news for his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:18 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 21 points in victory
    Stephen Curry scored 21 points with five rebounds, three assists, six steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He passed Rick Barry for the Warriors all-time postseason record for points scored. Curry didn't have his best defensive game with a couple really bad fouls, which does happen more than it should for such a savvy player. On the offensive side, Curry isn't just counting on his jumpers and the Spurs continue to have trouble tracking him with his off-ball moves. Unlike last year, he looks very healthy in these playoffs. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:41 pm
  • Andre Iguodala scores two points
    Andre Iguodala (knee soreness) scored two points with two rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: While he didn't have a formal minutes cap, coach Mike Brown did bring in Iguodala a little later than usual in the second half. Iggy did look healthy during his game and even had a coast-to-coast basket in the first half. He'll get plenty of time off before the NBA Finals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 17 points vs. Spurs
    Klay Thompson scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He's still not quite as aggressive as usual, but Thompson continues to make winning plays on both ends. The All-Star hasn't been concerned about his underwhelming scoring postseason and obviously his playing time will be very high when the games are close. Will the games ever be close, though? Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:36 pm
  • Manu Ginobili scores 21 points in loss to GSW
    Manu Ginobili thrived off the bench in a 120-108 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, scoring 21 points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in just 18 minutes.

    Advice: He was the best player for the Spurs tonight and it wasn't close. Ginobili also had one of the best nutmegs you'll see as he split the defense while putting the ball through David West's legs (video in link below). The future Hall of Fame guard said he's going to take some time off to decide if he wants to retire, so hopefully Monday isn't his last game. A quick injury note: Manu was grabbing his hamstring in the second half, so we'll keep an eye out to make sure he's OK. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:34 pm
  • Patty Mills scores seven points
    Patty Mills made 2-of-10 from the field for seven points with one rebound, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He's been awful in this series and it's becoming even more clear why coach Gregg Popovich likes to bring him off the bench. Maybe Pop makes a change to start Dejounte Murray over Mills, but the Aussie guard should get heavy minutes regardless. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:33 pm
  • Kyle Anderson makes a start
    Kyle Anderson started on Saturday with six points, nine rebounds, five assists, one block and one turnover in 20 minutes against the Warriors.

    Advice: He had to guard Kevin Durant for most of his time out there and Anderson was still able to turn in some stats. He also didn't play in garbage time, so maybe coach Gregg Popovich is looking to get him run again on Monday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:32 pm
  • Kyle Anderson starting, Pau Gasol to bench
    Kyle Anderson will start and Pau Gasol will move to the bench against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Gasol has not played well at all in this series, so coach Gregg Popovich will go with a smaller lineup to help defend transition and the trey. Anderson did play well in Game 1 and he may have to guard Kevin Durant quite a bit, so don't expect much effort on offense. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:32 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) will play on Saturday
    Andre Iguodala (knee) will play on Saturday against the Spurs for Game 3.

    Advice: After not playing in the second half in Game 1 and sitting out in Game 2, Iguodala is back from his knee soreness. The time off does sound precautionary and Iggy has been practicing since Thursday. If he isn't limited, Ian Clark, Matt Barnes and Pat McCaw could lose some minutes. The Warriors will need him against LeBron James, so they may take it easy on the former Finals MVP. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:33 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (hip) out for rest of playoffs
    Isaiah Thomas (hip) will miss the remainder of this year’s postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear.

    Advice: In layman's terms, there's a tear in the area in which the top part of his thigh bone meets his hip bone. Thomas initially hurt his hip on Mar. 15 and it cost him two games back then. He also aggravated this injury in Game 6 against the Wizards on May 12, and then again hurt it on Friday night. "Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred," said Celtics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian McKeon. "The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue." There's no word of a treatment plan yet, but labral tears could result in surgery, which may throw off IT's offseason plan. For the rest of the playoffs, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier will have to step up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:50 pm
  • Dion Waiters talks more about re-signing
    Dion Waiters said he and the Heat "just got to make it happen" when it comes to agreeing to terms this summer.

    Advice: "Let’s get it over with as quick as possible," Waiters said. After years of being one of the more inefficient high-volume players, Waiters cracked 50 true shooting percentage for the first time since 2013-14, and a lot of credit has to go to coach Erik Spoelstra. He added he thinks he'll be back, and it does help the Heat will have $38 million in cap space this summer. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:46 pm
  • Jonathon Simmons will start Game 3
    Jonathon Simmons will start in place of Kawhi Leonard (ankle) in Game 3 vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Simmons was superb in Game 2. He finished with a team-high 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in just 25 minutes. Over the Spurs last five games this postseason, he is averaging 16.2 points (shooting 48.4 percent from the floor), 2.2 assists, 2.2 boards and 1.4 treys. Simmons is a pending free agent and will get paid handsomely this summer, especially after his stellar playoff performances. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:05 am
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) probable for Game 3
    Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) is probable for Game 3 vs. the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: Iguodala sat out the final 25 minutes of Game 1 and was ruled out for Game 2. However, he got in a full practice on Friday and is expected to suit up on Saturday night. Warrior reserves Ian Clark, Matt Barnes and Pat McCaw will see their playing time reduced in Game 3, assuming Iggy logs his usual allotment of minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:36 am
  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) ruled out of Game 3
    Coach Gregg Popovich said that Kawhi Leonard (ankle) will not play in Game 3 vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: A brutal blow for the Spurs, who need to win Game 3 if they have any chance of salvaging this series. The fact that Leonard has already been ruled out this early on Saturday isn't an encouraging sign regarding his chances of suiting up for Game 4, which will be played on Monday. Jonathon Simmons will draw another start in place of Kawhi. Simmons played well in Game 2, scoring a team-high 22 points. Kyle Anderson will also see an uptick in minutes. San Antonio will desperately need LaMarcus Aldridge to step up and carry the load offensively. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:40 am
  • OKC able to offer Westbrook 'super max' deal
    The Thunder will be able to sign Russell Westbrook to the Designated Player Veteran Extension this summer.

    Advice: Russ will make $28.5 million for the 2017-18 season and can tack on another five years, beginning in 2018-19. The total value of the extension would be $207 million. If Westbrook decides not to sign the extension, thus enabling him to become a free agent in July of 2018, OKC will have a tough decision to make. Do they allow him to play out the 2017-18 season and hope he re-signs, or do they maximize his trade value and avoid risking losing him for nothing. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:48 am
  • Isaiah Thomas (hip) uncertain for Game 3
    Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) will be re-evaluated Saturday and may be forced to miss Game 3 vs. Cleveland on Sunday.

    Advice: Thomas missed the second half of Game 2, and it turns out he's been dealing with pain in his hip since last week. "He's had a nagging hip injury," coach Brad Stevens said. "He aggravated it pretty significantly last Friday in Washington in Game 6 (of the conference semifinals), went through a bunch of testing on Saturday and Sunday and was able to play Monday, (but) hasn't felt great either of the two days." Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes if Thomas is sidelined for Game 3. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:19 am
  • Isaiah Thomas has been playing through injury
    Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) has been playing through injury since the Wizards series and his injury is "considered significant," according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

    Advice: The report adds the Celtics had "doubts Thomas could play in Game 7" on Sunday, but he's been gutting it out since. Thomas hasn't quite looked right in some time, so perhaps this explains it. After not playing in the second half tonight, he'll likely have an MRI coming in the next day and the Celtics seem like the have no chance to make this a series. If IT is out, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier would also have to step up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:20 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 23 points in win vs. BOS
    Kyrie Irving scored 23 points in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: While LeBron James is stealing the show, Kyrie is starting to come around after an underwhelming start to this postseason. He beat up on the Celtics all season with 25.5 points per game on 62.8 true shooting percentage, so a big game today is no surprise. After the game on TNT, Irving also said the Cavs are playing "pissed off" ad they're being more aggressive. With Isaiah Thomas (hip) now banged up, it's possible Irving gets more Marcus Smart in Game 3. It probably won't matter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:56 pm
  • Jaylen Brown scores 19 points in bad loss
    Jaylen Brown scored a team-high 19 points during an embarrassing 130-86 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Yeah, he might not want to talk about LeBron James again. Before the game, Brown said LeBron is "just a regular guy" and there are bigger threats in his neighborhood. TD Garden probably won't have to worry about LeBron threatening the Celtics again as the Celtics take their 0-2 deficit to Cleveland. As bad as the Celtics were, at least Brown looked decent today and he probably deserves more minutes in Game 3. Maybe take the mic away from him, though. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:54 pm
  • Marcus Smart misses all six shots from field
    Marcus Smart missed all six shots from the field and made all four from the line against the Cavs on Friday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) didn't play in the second half, but the Celtics being down 41 points at halftime was likely a factor here. Smart continues to get open looks, but he's just been terrible at converting those chances. He did start the second half on Friday night for IT. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:51 pm
  • Terry Rozier scores six points
    Terry Rozier scored six points with one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) was hobbling a bit during this game and he didn't play in the second half. If IT can't play in Game 3, Rozier figures to be the next man up and he may even start to keep Marcus Smart in the second unit -- Smart is the heavy favorite to start. Rozier has played better than expected lately, so he may be a factor regardless as the Celtics are now in desperation mode. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:50 pm
  • Gerald Green scores six points
    Gerald Green scored six points in a start against the Cavs on Friday, adding two 3-pointers and one turnover in 14 minutes.

    Advice: He actually played well early with a couple big threes in the first quarter. Green was probably the best player in the first quarter before things got out of hand, but coach Brad Stevens still didn't start Green in the second half. There will probably be a change in Game 3. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:49 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (right hip) will not return
    Isaiah Thomas (right hip) will not return to Friday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: He was limping at the end of the first half and the team is calling it a right hip strain. The Celtics were dominated 72-31 for the biggest halftime deficit in the history of the NBA playoffs, so there's no reason to bring IT back. He was terrible in this game, scoring just two points in 18 minutes. Marcus Smart started the third quarter for Thomas. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 pm
  • Westbrook, Harden, Kawhi finalists for MVP
    Russell Westbrook, James Harden and Kawhi Leonard are the finalists for Most Valuable Player.

    Advice: It just feels weird to not see LeBron James in this group, but there's no denying the three finalists turned in magnificent seasons. The NBA world became obsessed with triple-doubles as Westbrook averaged one for the entire season while also breaking Oscar Robertson's record for most trip-dubs on the year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:14 pm
  • Lou Williams, Gordon, Iguodala for 6MOY
    Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Andre Iguodala are the finalists for Sixth Man of the Year.

    Advice: Williams was almost lapping the field during his Lakers days, but he did lose some ground in Houston with even coach Mike D'Antoni calling him the seventh man. Williams also only made one start all season, averaging 18.6 points per game in his 58 outings as a Laker. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:50 pm
  • Gerald Green starting over Amir Johnson
    The Celtics will start Gerald Green in place of Amir Johnson for Game 2 against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: It makes a lot of sense to pull Johnson from the starting lineup. That lineup didn't fare well during the season and it was roasted in Game 1. It is somewhat interesting that Green is starting over someone like Jaylen Brown. Green likely won't play too much beyond his first stints from each half, assuming he can start the second half. Expect Brown to get more minutes than Green. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:38 pm
  • Jaylen Brown not afraid of LeBron
    Jaylen Brown said he sees LeBron James as "just a regular guy."

    Advice: "There's bigger threats in my neighborhood than LeBron James," Brown added. You could argue Brown was the best Celtic on Wednesday, scoring 10 points in 20 minutes. It sounds like coach Brad Stevens is going to get him out there again, and it makes a lot of sense to even start him. He makes a lot of sense as a DFS play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:39 pm
  • Dray nd KD think Kawhi will play
    Both Draymond Green and Kevin Durant are expecting Kawhi Leonard (ankle) to play in Game 3 on Saturday.

    Advice: "No doubt in my mind," Green said. Obviously, theses opinions don't mean much, but it's a slow day. Leonard had plenty of treatment on Thursday and he said if he feels good, he'll play. Expect an update on Kawhi at shootaround on Saturday morning. He'll likely be a game-time decision. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:04 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) goes through practice
    Andre Iguodala (knee) went through a full practice in San Antonio on Friday.

    Advice: That means he has a great chance to play in Game 3 on Saturday. Iguodala is still questionable for the game and the Warriors may want to take it easy on their vet with still six wins to go. If Iguodala is back, guys like Ian Clark, Matt Barnes and Pat McCaw may lose some playing time. Shaun Livingston may be more of a backup PG than the wing he's been lately. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:28 pm
  • Jazz envision Exum at multiple positions
    Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said that Utah plans play to play Dante Exum at multiple positions next season.

    Advice: Exum has not lived up to expectations since being selected fifth overall in the 2014 draft, due in part to missing the entire 2015-16 season due to an ACL tear. However, he did show signs of progress in the 2017 postseason. Going forward, Utah envisions making the most of his versatility, including playing him off the ball. "The team functioned better when Dante was playing a wing, versus point guard, but there’s point guard in his future, there’s two-guard and even three because of his unique size, length and speed and hopefully developing strength," said GM Dennis Lindsey. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:57 am
  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) listed as questionable
    The Spurs are officially listing Kawhi Leonard (ankle) as questionable for Game 3 vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Speaking with reporters, Leonard said his ankle is feeling "better" but did not sound overly optimistic. "It's still not ready... I could be feeling way better." When asked if he thought he would be able to play on Saturday, Leonard replied: "We'll see how it feels tomorrow." We should get another update Saturday morning after shootaround, but at this point, it appears we may be heading towards a game-time decision. Jonathon Simmons would once again be asked to shoulder an increased load if Kawhi is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:14 am
  • John Wall now eligible to sign DPVE extension
    As a result of being named to the All-NBA Third Team, John Wall is eligible to sign a Designated Player Veteran Extension this summer.

    Advice: Wall has two years left on his current deal but is now able to sign a four-year, $168 million extension that would kick in for the 2019–20 season. In the past, Wall had previously voiced his displeasure after seeing inferior point guards, such as Reggie Jackson, sign contracts worth more than his. Both he and the Wiz may consider committing to each other long term, which would lock in a major pay raise for Wall. He would earn $37.5 million in the first season of that new deal. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:25 am
  • Jazz unable to offer Hayward 'super max' deal
    Becuase Gordon Hayward was not named to an All-NBA team this season, Utah is unable to offer him the Designated Player Veteran Extension this summer.

    Advice: It's a tough break for the Jazz. Had Hayward made one of the three All-NBA teams, Utah would have been able to ink him to a deal worth approximately $207 million over five years. Now, once he opts out in July, they will only be able to offer a max contract at around $177 million over five years. Other teams, including the Celtics, can offer $132 million over four years. Utah still can obviously offer far more than competitors, but it's not as sizable a difference as it could have been. Most league insiders believe Hayward's decision will come down to re-signing with Utah or heading to Boston to reunite with his former college coach Brad Stevens. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:21 am
  • Jazz confident they can re-sign George Hill
    Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said he is confident that Utah will be able to re-sign George Hill.

    Advice: "There’s a very good chance, we’re each other’s best option come July," Lindsey said of Hill. However, Lindsey did acknowledge that if Hill got an exorbitant offer, Utah might not be able to match it. "I told him if he gets a crazy offer somewhere else and we helped him get that offer, 'you’re not going to get one poor thought, much less a word (from us)’ if he were to go," Lindsey said. "He helped us." Three of Utah's most important players, Hill, Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles, are all set to hit free agency in July. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:26 am
  • Isaiah Thomas not afraid of Cleveland
    Isaiah Thomas said the Celtics are not afraid of the Cavs.

    Advice: "They're not Space Jam," Thomas said. "They just happened to play better than us in Game 1." The Celtics starters were destroyed on Wednesday and played just eight minutes together. Coach Brad Stevens could opt to make a change, but he could also change his plan and look to double LeBron James more. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:29 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) does light practice
    Andre Iguodala (knee) went through a full light practice on Thursday.

    Advice: A "full light practice" isn't exactly clear, but this is a good sign after Iguodala missed the last 1.5 games -- he didn't play in the final 25 minutes of Game 1. With Iggy out, it was Shaun Livingston, Pat McCaw, Matt Barnes and Ian Clark stepping up. Iguodala may still be limited with the Warriors having a 2-0 advantage. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:24 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard's (ankle) status still unclear
    Kawhi Leonard (ankle) "didn't do much, if anything, on the court" at Thursday's practice according to Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News.

    Advice: The Spurs will likely keep Leonard's availability close to their chest as long as they can, so don't expect a real update until Saturday. Pau Gasol said Leonard was "sitting nicely on the sideline," but did hint that he's making progress. If Leonard sits out in Game 3 on Saturday, Jonathon Simmons will be the clear winner after scoring a team-high 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in Game 2. Kyle Anderson and Dejounte Murray would also benefit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:53 am
  • Report: Mavericks interested in Jrue Holiday
    According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Mavericks are interested in free agent PG Jrue Holiday.

    Advice: The Pelicans can offer him more money than any other team and coach Alvin Gentry said their No. 1 priority is to re-sign him, so Begley adds that the Mavs will likely have to clear some cap space to make a competitive offer. Begley also said that the Knicks are fans of the 26-year-old PG, but the length and amount of Holiday's contract could take them out of the running. Holiday averaged 15.4 points, 7.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, 1.5 steals and 1.5 treys on 45.4 percent shooting and should be able to at least double his salary this summer after making $11.2 million in the final year of his deal.

  • Gordon Hayward a target for Celtics?
    Chris Mannix of The Vertical believes Gordon Hayward is Boston's No. 1 target in free agency.

    Advice: Hayward has been non-committal about his future in Utah, but it's a lock that he's going to opt out of the final year of his deal and hit the open market. The 27-year-old wing is coming off a career year with averages of 22.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 treys on 46.8 percent shooting, so it will likely take a max contract offer to pry him away from Utah. To be clear, the Jazz are still the favorites to re-sign him. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:08 am
  • Isaiah Thomas struggles in Gm 1 loss vs. Cavs
    Isaiah Thomas struggled in 38 minutes on Wednesday, making 7-of-19 shots with two 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: Thomas was trapped often by the Cavs' defense, as expected, but he just didn't have it going offensively -- he missed shots he usually makes, committed some costly turnovers, and the Celtics looked lost in the first half. Thomas was a mere 1-of-3 from the FT line tonight, after averaging 10.5 made free throws vs. Cleveland during the regular season. He should fare better in Game 2 on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:53 pm
  • Jaylen Brown plays well off bench in Gm 1
    Jaylen Brown was one of the few bright spots for Boston on Wednesday, coming off the bench for 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting, nine rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: "Jaylen [earns minutes] because he adds value to winning," Brad Stevens said before the game. Brown missed a pair of free throws late, with the game out of reach, but otherwise he was excellent in Game 1. He played admirable defense against LeBron James, and his four offensive rebounds gave Boston some much-needed (albeit short-lived) momentum. The rookie seems to have earned a significant role in this series. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:49 pm
  • Kyrie Irving w/ 11 points on 11 shot attempts
    Kyrie Irving scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting during the Cavs' Game 1 victory in Boston on Wednesday.

    Advice: Irving handed out six assists with two rebounds, two steals and one block in 34 minutes. He boasts a gaudy usage rate during the postseason but the Cavs had great success with LeBron James as their de facto point guard tonight, so Irving was relegated to second-string duties. We anticipate a bigger game, usage-wise, on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:42 pm
  • Sounds like Jaylen Brown is going to get run
    Coach Brad Stevens said Jaylen Brown has been playing "because he adds value to winning."

    Advice: "It’s been a great situation for us to see his growth," Stevens said. "It’s been pretty evident." It sounds like the Celtics will use their No. 3 pick in this series. Plus, Stevens also said that he may have a tough time doubling LeBron James because of all the shooters around him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 29 points in 136-100 win
    Stephen Curry lit up the Spurs for 29 points in Tuesday's 136-100 Game 2 win, giving the Warriors a 2-0 series lead.

    Advice: He sat out the fourth quarter due to the lopsided score, but still had a monster night with seven assists, seven rebounds, three steals and six 3-pointers. He was also very efficient, shooting 8-of-13 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line. The Warriors are 10-0 in the playoffs which extends a franchise record, but they will need another big night from Curry if they want to take Game 3 with the series shifting to San Antonio. Draymond Green scored 13 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and two triples, while Klay Thompson added 11 points, six rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:12 pm
  • Jonathon Simmons scores 22 points in loss
    Jonathon Simmons started in place of Kawhi Leonard (ankle) in Tuesday's 136-100 Game 2 loss vs. the Warriors, scoring a team-high 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting.

    Advice: Coach Gregg Popovich said after the game that Simmons was the only player that showed up for San Antonio. "Jonathon [Simmons] was in a category by himself," he said. "The other guys were in the other category." Simmons did his damage in just 26 minutes because of the blowout, adding three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers. Regardless of Leonard's status for Game 3 on Saturday, Simmons is going to have a significant role and has been one of the biggest surprises of the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:46 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) won't play in Game 2
    Kawhi Leonard has been officially ruled out for Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: No surprise here, as Leonard was previously considered doubtful. Game 3 isn't until Saturday which will give Leonard several days to rest up, but coach Gregg Popovich said that his superstar forward will likely be listed as questionable. Jonathon Simmons will start in Game 2 and is the big winner in fantasy formats, but Kyle Anderson, Dejounte Murray and Manu Ginobili should also get a bump. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:50 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) ruled out for Game 2
    Andre Iguodala (left knee) has been ruled out for Game 2 vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: His MRI on Monday came back clean and he's simply dealing with some soreness. However, Game 3 isn't until Saturday and the Spurs are expected to without Kawhi Leonard (ankle) tonight, so it makes sense for the Warriors to play it safe. Shaun Livingston will pick up the slack in the second unit, while Matt Barnes may see a handful of minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:47 pm
  • Jonathon Simmons starting in place of Kawhi
    Jonathon Simmons will draw the start in place of Kawhi Leonard (ankle) in Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: Leonard was listed as doubtful on the last injury report, but he's fully expected to sit this one out. The last time Simmons was in the starting lineup for Leonard, he dropped 18 points with four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. He will be a popular play in all formats tonight. Expect Manu Ginobili, Kyle Anderson and Dejounte Murray to help fill the void as well. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:32 pm
  • Gentry says re-signing Holiday is a priority
    Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said re-signing Jrue Holiday "is a number one priority" this summer.

    Advice: The unrestricted free agent will be 27 years old in June and is widely expected to at least double his salary this offseason after making $11.2 million in 2016-17. Holiday missed the first 12 games of the season to take care of his family while his wife underwent a successful brain surgery, but he was solid upon his return and finished the campaign with averages of 15.4 points, 7.3 assists, 3.9 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, 1.5 steals and 1.5 treys on 45.4 percent shooting. The Pelicans obviously have two usage rate monsters in Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, so a move away from New Orleans likely wouldn't be a bad thing for his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:39 pm
  • John Wall feels fine heading into offseason
    John Wall said that he feels fine physically heading into the offseason and that he doesn't expect to undergo any further knee procedures.

    Advice: Despite a bitterly disappointing end to the season due to a poor performance in Game 7 vs. Boston, the 2016-17 campaign was very encouraging overall for Wall. Not only did he put up the best all-around numbers of his career in the regular season and the playoffs, he was also able to remain healthy. He was held out of back-to-backs in November, and there was fear he would frequently be sidelined, but he ended up starting 78 of 82 regular season contests and all 13 playoff games. He won't last past the second round in fantasy drafts next fall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:47 am
  • Warriors confident Thompson will make shots
    The Warriors are highly confident that Klay Thompson will snap out of his recent shooting slump.

    Advice: After scoring only six points on 2-of-11 shooting in Game 1, Thompson is now averaging 15.0 points on 38.8 percent shooting, including 36.0 percent from 3-point territory in the playoffs. During the regular season, Klay averaged 22.3 points, while 46.8 percent from the floor and 41.4 percent from downtown. It's likely only a matter of time before Thompson starts heating up. Also, he's been phenomenal on the defensive end. "His stat line, offensively, wasn’t what most people expect, nor was it what he expected," said coach Mike Brown. "When you go back and you watch that tape, defensively he was a monster." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:43 am
  • John Wall fades in Game 7 loss
    John Wall faded down the stretch of Monday's Game 7 loss to Boston, finishing with 18 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds and one triple in 44 minutes.

    Advice: Wall was one of the best performers in the postseason prior to Monday, but he ran out of gas tonight and gave the Wizards very little when it mattered the most -- he failed to score in the final 19 minutes and was 0-of-11 from the field as he settled for jumpers instead of taking it to the rim. While this is a brutal way to end his season, Wall can hold his head high after leading his team to a 49-33 record with averages of 23.1 points, 10.6 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.1 3-pointers. Despite having surgeries on both knees before the season, he rewarded his fantasy owners with a top-20 campaign. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:41 pm
  • Marcus Smart steps up in Game 7 win
    Marcus Smart was everywhere in Monday's Game 7 win over the Wizards, racking up 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two triples in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He played within himself tonight and didn't force things on the offensive end, but Smart also made several winning hustle plays and played some incredible lock-down defense. He finished 4-of-7 from the field, hitting a massive 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter in addition to a couple of key baskets in the fourth. "When it’s all on the line, he’s going to make it," coach Brad Stevens said of Smart coming up big down the stretch. "That’s a unique trait." Expect the combo guard to spend a lot of time guarding either LeBron James or Kyrie Irving in the next round. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:19 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 29 points w/ 12 assists
    Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points on 9-of-21 shooting in Monday's Game 7 win over the Wizards.

    Advice: Playing in his first ever Game 7, Thomas said before the game that he doesn't "believe in pressure" and he backed those comments up with a monster performance. He dished out 12 assists in 40 minutes, hitting 8-of-9 free throws with two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers. It's not a bad day to be a Boston fan, as the Celtics will move on to face the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals and have a 25.0 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick during the draft lottery on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Andre Iguodala's (knee) MRI comes back clean
    An MRI on Andre Iguodala's left knee came back clean according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: This confirms that he's simply dealing with soreness, but he is still considered questionable for Game 2 vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. With Kawhi Leonard (ankle) expected to sit out Game 2, the Warriors may opt to hold Iguodala out as well. If they do, he will have several days to rest up for Game 3 on Saturday. Shaun Livingston will likely benefit the most if Iggy sits, while Matt Barnes would likely pick up a handful of minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Leonard's ankle has no structural damage
    An MRI taken on Kawhi Leonard's left ankle revealed no structural damage.

    Advice: While this is obviously good news, the Spurs are still listing Leonard as doubtful for Game 2 on Tuesday. If he sits out as expected, he will then have several days to rest up for Game 3 in San Antonio on Saturday. Expect Jonathon Simmons, Kyle Anderson, Manu Ginobili and Dejounte Murray to pick up the slack on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com May 15, 4:14 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (knee) questionable for Game 2
    Andre Iguodala (left knee) is questionable for Game 2 vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: He already underwent an MRI, but the Warriors are still waiting on the results. It was reported on Sunday that there's a "strong chance" Iguodala won't play in Game 2, so he's likely closer to doubtful. As expected, he was also held out of Monday's practice. Look for Shaun Livingston and Matt Barnes to pick up the slack if Iggy can't play in Game 2. Daily Slant: Livingston earned 23 minutes on Sunday, 15 of them after Iggy was shut down. Although he's far from a lock, as he's averaged just 0.60 FD ppm this postseason, he's very affordable at or near the minimum across the industry and provides a route towards unique lineups on a two-game slate. However, the opportunity cost of missing big games from the three elite point guards - Isaiah Thomas, John Wall, and Stephen Curry - may be too great. Rotoworld.com May 15, 12:48 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard (ankle) doubtful for Game 2
    Kawhi Leonard (ankle) isn't expected to play in Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday according to coach Gregg Popovich.

    Advice: Leonard was undergoing an MRI while Popovich was speaking, so we might get another update later today. The two-way superstar has rolled his ankle a few times this week, so the Spurs may hold him out for Game 2 because Game 3 isn't until May 20 in San Antonio -- that would give him an additional five days of rest. If he's out, Jonathon Simmons, Kyle Anderson and Manu Ginobili will all have to step up, with Simmons offering the most upside in DFS. The Spurs would also have to use more two-PG lineups which would benefit Dejounte Murray. Rotoworld.com May 15, 10:44 am
  • George Hill would like to re-sign w/ Utah
    George Hill said that he's hoping to re-sign with the Jazz this summer.

    Advice: "I really enjoyed playing with the guys here. I think we created a heck of a bond" Hill said. "Let’s stay together, build on what we’ve done this year. Hopefully we can do that." A report in early March by Tim MacMahon of ESPN indicated that Hill's camp is seeking a four-year deal worth $132 million, so a return to Utah is going to be difficult with Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles also hitting free agency. Hill recently turned 31 and missed a total of 36 games if you include the playoffs, so handing out that type of money will be a massive gamble. Rotoworld.com May 15, 9:40 am
  • Gordon Hayward non-committal on future
    Gordon Hayward said he hasn't thought about free agency too much, but made it clear that he's enjoyed his time in Utah.

    Advice: "It’s been so much fun for me here in Utah and kind of growing up here starting a family — growth from a basketball standpoint, growth from a man’s standpoint," he said. "I have nothing but love for everybody here in Utah." It's a lock that Hayward will opt out of his $16.7 million player option to test free agency, but he hasn't given any indication on what the future holds. Hayward said making the playoffs this season makes him want to "work even harder and go further," so hopefully the 27-year-old forward will take another step forward in 2017-18 after returning top-35 value in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com May 15, 9:30 am
  • Kawhi Leonard (left ankle) will have an MRI
    Kawhi Leonard (ankle) will have an MRI Sunday night on his left ankle.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise for a guy who has rolled his ankle three times this week, which is by far the roughest stretch of ankle injuries he's had of his career. Leonard didn't have much of a limp and didn't have anything on his ankle besides some tape. For now, he's likely looking at a game-time call. While the Spurs did sit him in Game 6, it may be tougher to do so against the Warriors in a 0-1 hole. If he's out, Jonathon Simmons, Kyle Anderson, Manu Ginobili and Dejounte Murray will have to step up. Rotoworld.com May 14, 4:15 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 40 in Game 1 win vs. SA
    Stephen Curry scored 40 points during a 113-111 win over the Spurs on Sunday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and seven 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors were down 25 in the first half and pulled off the comeback with some strong offensive play. Curry saved the day with a strong third while Kevin Durant closed this one out with several tough buckets. The Warriors finished 58-33 after the Kawhi Leonard injury, posting a 159.3 offensive rating when Kawhi was off the court and while Durant was on. Kawhi aside, the Spurs lost Curry a lot off screens and perhaps they're not used to that after going against James Harden. This was a 2017 postseason high and his fifth career postseason 40-plus scoring game. Rotoworld.com May 14, 4:10 pm
  • Klay Thompson still stuck in his slump
    Klay Thompson made 2-of-11 from the field for six points with four rebounds, three assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: His offense has been a nightmare for most of the postseason. In his previous games in this postseason, he only had a 47.5 effective field goal percentage on catch-and-shoot attempts, which is way down from his 61.8 during the season. Offense aside, Klay's defense has actually been great in the past month, but he was biting on pump fakes and just wasn't quite there today. We'll see if he can get better in Game 2 on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:46 pm
  • Manu Ginobili scores 17 points in loss
    Manu Ginobili scored 17 points with one rebound, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes in a Game 1 loss to the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: He made some big buckets, including a driving dunk in the last minute (video in link below). If Kawhi Leonard (ankle) can't play on Tuesday, Ginobili may have to step up even more. After it looked like he had very little left in the tank during the season, Ginobili has been a factor in these playoffs. He's 39 years old. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:32 pm
  • Kyle Anderson gets the call
    Kyle Anderson scored four points with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in nine minutes against the Warriors in Game 1 on Sunday.

    Advice: When Kawhi Leonard (ankle) went down, it was basically Anderson who stepped up and picked up the minutes. While it wasn't quite Summer League Slo Mo, Anderson gave the Spurs some good minutes in the third quarter. Anderson only played six minutes in the first half of Game 6 vs. Houston, but coach Gregg Popovich may call on him more until Kawhi is ready to roll for some added length. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:30 pm
  • Jonathon Simmons gets 26 minutes
    Jonathon Simmons played 26 minutes off the bench against the Warriors in Game 1 on Sunday, scoring 12 points with one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers in the loss.

    Advice: He was already the first sub of the game when he checked in for Danny Green in the first quarter, but Simmons really had to step up after the Kawhi Leonard (ankle) injury. Coach Gregg Popovich did trust Juice on Kevin Durant throughout this game and Simmons continues to show off new tools in his offensive arsenal. Regardless of Leonard's health, Simmons will be a big factor in this series. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:24 pm
  • Patty Mills has a rough Game 1
    Patty Mills struggled in his start against the Warriors in Game 1 on Sunday, making 1-of-8 from the field for five points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 37 minutes.

    Advice: It was not his best game on the offensive end with several wide-open misses. Before the game, coach Gregg Popovich was asked about Mills' upcoming free agency this summer. "I don't want to talk too much about Patty Mills because the more good things I say, the more we're going to have to pay him," Pop said. Bad game aside, Mills should get heavy minutes and he did handle the ball much more when Kawhi Leonard (ankle) was out for Game 6, so he could have an even bigger role. Rotoworld.com May 14, 3:24 pm
  • Patty Mills sticking in the starting lineup
    Coach Gregg Popovich said Patty Mills will start in Game 1 against the Warriors.

    Advice: This is the expected move, but it wasn't 100 percent given how Game 6 went on Thursday. Dejounte Murray was phenomenal in that one and coach Gregg Popovich sounded like he may trust him with minutes. Pop used a Mills-Murray combo for six minutes in that game, but that likely had to do with Kawhi Leonard (ankle) not playing. Expect to see Mills get most of the minutes at the point today. Daily Slant: This postseason, Mills has played 116.8 minutes with Aldridge and Leonard on the court and Tony Parker off; in that sample, he set a per-36 pace of 23.04 DK points with a usage rate of 18.4%. Since earning the starting job his price has jumped across the industry, preventing him from being a great value. On top of that, he has a tough matchup and there are three elite PGs available, two of whom are in a Game 7 and playing softer defenses. It may make sense to pay up at PG and save elsewhere. Rotoworld.com May 14, 11:14 am
  • Hero Wall: John hits game-winning 3-pointer
    John Wall hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 3.5 seconds left to beat the Celtics 92-91 in Game 6 on Friday, finishing with 26 points, two rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Game 7, baby. Game 7. Wall hit his first go-ahead shot in his career with less than 10 seconds on the clock to snap an 0-of-6 before tonight. He was also struggling in a big way early in the game, going just 1-of-12 to start, but got hot and finished 8-of-13 after that to get to 23 points in the second half. After the game, Wall had some things to say about the Celtics showing up to Verizon Center in all black. "Don't come to my city wearing all black telling us it's a funeral," he said on the ESPN broadcast. The Wizards have been getting killed on the road with a -11.8 net rating on the road, so they'll have their hands full in Boston on Monday. Rotoworld.com May 12, 8:25 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 27 points in loss to Wiz
    Isaiah Thomas scored 27 points during a Game 6 92-91 loss in Washington on Friday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, five turnovers and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: It looked like it was Isaiah Time in the fourth with a couple clutch IT jumpers with two minutes left, but he had a bad turnover late that led to a Brad Beal three, and John Wall blocked IT on the next possession. If not for that sequence, the Celtics are probably getting ready for the Cavs. Plus, coach Brad Stevens pulled out a lot of nice after-timeout plays and you could say he out-coached Scott Brooks today. The Celtics were living on fast-break points with 17 in this game while they had a lot of perimeter points outside of that with only 26 points in the paint. TD Garden should be fired up for Game 7 on Monday. Rotoworld.com May 12, 8:05 pm
  • Avery Bradley scores 27 points in loss
    Avery Bradley scored 27 points during a Game 6 loss to the Wizards on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Usually, when Bradley goes off in the postseason, the Celtics have been winning those games, but not today. He played excellent defense on Bradley Beal for almost the entire night to go with the scoring. It seemed like coach Brad Stevens saw something in the Wizards defense because Bradley had several cuts to get some easy hoops to go with those three treys. He's clearly healthy and will be a very important piece on Monday. Rotoworld.com May 12, 7:56 pm
  • Avery Bradley (hips) good to go
    Avery Bradley (hips) is still all set to play in Game 6 despite how his hip pointers are still bothering him.

    Advice: He finally showed up in a big way in Game 5, scoring 29 points to help the Celtics dominate to get a 3-2 lead. Bradley was a big reason why the Celtics won four straight against the Bulls, so another strong game from him today could put the C's over the top today. Rotoworld.com May 12, 11:37 am
