  • Jamal Murray goes 26/10/6, Nugs open Finals w/ win
    Jamal Murray posted a 26-point, 10-assist double-double Thursday against the Heat, adding six rebounds, a steal and two triples.

    Advice: He shot 11-of-22 from the field and incredibly, Murray did most of his damage in the first three quarters. Dating back to Game 6 against Phoenix, he's now scored at least 25 in six straight games, and he's provided two double-doubles in his last four outings. Much like his counterpart Nikola Jokic, Murray has broken out this postseason, averaging nearly 28 points per game to go with 5.5 boards and 6.1 dimes. Murray and Jokic will look to handle their business at home in Game 2 on Sunday and take a 2-0 series lead before heading back to Miami for Game 3 on Wednesday. Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Delivers double-double
    Murray closed with 26 points (11-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 44 minutes during Thursday's 104-93 victory over Miami in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Murray continued his stellar playoff run Thursday, going for 26-and-10 as the Nuggets held off a late charge by the Heat. He has looked fantastic throughout the playoffs, playing easily his best basketball since returning from a long-term knee injury while scoring 25-plus in six straight games. Game 2 will once again be in Denver on Monday, with Murray looking to help his team establish a commanding 2-0 series lead. Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Nurse hopeful for James Harden return next season
    During his introductory press conference, 76ers coach Nick Nurse said that he hopes that James Harden will remain with the team. 

    Advice: Harden took less money last summer when he agreed to a new contract with the 76ers, a decision that opened the door for the team to sign P.J. Tucker and Danuel House. However, that contract also came with a player option for the 2023-24 season, and the expectation is that he will opt out and become a free agent this summer. And with there being reports that Harden could be headed back to Houston, that was a question asked of Nurse during his introductory presser. His "sales pitch" to Harden will be simple for the 76ers' new head coach. "Winning has to be the sell, right?" Nurse said. "Can we be good enough to win it all? That's got to be a goal of his. And if it is, then he should stay here and play for us, because I think there's a possibility of that." Harden's decision will impact the entire roster as far as fantasy basketball is concerned, most especially Tyrese Maxey and De'Anthony Melton. A Harden return to Philadelphia could limit the ceilings of those two, making them solid mid-round picks in standard leagues. Yesterday, 6:07 pm
  • Woj: Game 2 a possibility for Tyler Herro (hand)
    On Thursday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) could be back in action as soon as Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday. 

    Advice: Herro has already been ruled out for Thursday's series opener in Denver, but it's possible that he'll be cleared for Game 2. While he has been cleared to go through workouts, the key will be whether or not Herro can take contact to his hand. Per Wojnarowski, if Herro isn't cleared for Game 2, the expectation is that he would be healthy enough to play in Game 3 Wednesday night in Miami. Yesterday, 3:29 pm
  • Aiming to return for Game 2
    Herro (hand) has a possibility of returning for Sunday's Game 2 against the Nuggets, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Advice: Herro has missed practically the entirety of Miami's playoff run after undergoing right-hand surgery due to an injury he suffered in the playoff opener versus the Bucks. If the 22-year-old guard cannot return for Game 2, he is expected to suit up for Game 3, barring a setback. Herro started in all 67 of his appearances this season, but the length of his absence and the stakes involved upon his return could lead to a bench role initially for the sharpshooter. Yesterday, 12:43 pm
  • May need offseason surgery
    Brogdon said Monday after the Celtics' 103-84 loss to the Heat in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals that he may require offseason surgery to address a partial tendon tear in his right elbow/forearm, Jared Weiss of The Athletic reports.

    Advice: Brogdon reportedly suffered the injury in Game 1 of the series and proceeded to shoot 20 percent from the field while averaging 3.0 points per game in his remaining five appearances against the Heat. He ended up sitting out the Celtics' Game 6 win and was available only in a limited capacity for Game 7, playing just seven minutes. The injury resulted in a disappointing finish to what was a successful season overall for Brogdon, who took home the NBA's Sixth Man of the Year Award after averaging 14.9 points, 4.2 boards, 3.7 assists and 2.0 three-pointers in 26.0 minutes per game over 67 appearances during the regular season. He's on the Celtics' books for two more seasons and carries cap hits of $22.5 million for both years. Yesterday, 11:48 am
  • Spoelstra: Tyler Herro won't play in Game 1 Thurs.
    Erik Spoelstra said on Wednesday that Tyler Herro (fractured right hand) won't play in Game 1 against Denver on Thursday.

    Advice: Spo also said that "[Herro's] not there yet" as far as returning. Other reports indicated that Herro is targeting a return in Game 3, which would be the first game of the series in Miami. If the Heat want to complete this miraculous run that they're on, they'll need Herro's offense. Wednesday, 3:41 pm
  • Malcolm Brogdon (right arm) considering surgery
    Malcolm Brogdon (right arm injury) said after Monday's loss to the Heat that he will consider undergoing surgery this summer. 

    Advice: While the Celtics continued to list Brogdon's injury as a strained right forearm, he confirmed media reports that he was dealing with a partially torn tendon. The injury, which was suffered during Game 1 of the conference finals, had a significant impact on Brogdon's shooting and ballhandling abilities. The veteran guard played just eight minutes in Game 5 before being held out of Game 6. And in Game 7, Brogdon played seven ineffective minutes. Possible surgery could impact his availability for the start of next season. From a fantasy standpoint, the move to Boston may have improved Brogdon's chances of winning a title, but his value took a hit. The NBA's Sixth Man of the Year finished the regular season just outside the top 100 in 8- and 9-cat formats, which was in line with his Yahoo ADP of 111.7. Tuesday, 5:31 pm
  • Derrick White (left leg) to undergo MRI Tuesday
    Derrick White will undergo an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity of the left leg injury he suffered during the second half of Monday's Game 7 loss to the Heat. 

    Advice: White was Boston's best player for the first three periods of Monday's season-ending defeat, as Jayson Tatum was hampered by a sprained left ankle and Jaylen Brown struggled with turnovers and poor shooting. Unfortunately for the Celtics, their chances of a late rally were extinguished when White limped back to the locker room after injuring his leg. While it was announced by the team that he was available to return, White did not play another minute. From a fantasy standpoint, the question now is whether or not the issue is bad enough to keep him out for the beginning of next season. Despite a Yahoo ADP of 141.5 in 8-cat, per-game value, White finished the regular season as a 10th-round player (8th-round in 9-cat, per-game value). Tuesday, 5:25 pm
