  • Andre Drummond plans to exercise player option
    Andre Drummond said recently that he plans on exercising his player option for the 2023-24 season. 

    Advice: Drummond, who appeared in 67 games this season as Nikola Vucevic's backup, will make a little under $3.4 million should he follow through on the plan to opt-in. While he was effective in that role, playing less than 13 minutes per game considerably limited Drummond's fantasy value. At best, he's a player worth rostering only when Vucevic is sidelined due to injury. And those opportunities will be minimal, as Vooch has appeared in 70 games or more in four of the last five seasons. Today, 9:06 pm
  • Cody Zeller (foot) probable for Game 3 Wednesday
    Cody Zeller (sprained right foot) is probable for Game 3 of the Finals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Zeller played eight minutes in each of the first two games, and the Heat have been outscored by a total of 19 points when he's on the floor. He gives them a center when Bam Adebayo needs a break, but Zeller hasn't exactly been a positive factor for Miami thus far. Still, he should be able to suit up as the series shifts back to Miami. Today, 5:12 pm
  • Likely to play in Game 3
    Zeller is probable for Wednesday's Game 3 against Denver due to a sprained right foot, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Advice: Zeller was also considered probable for Game 2 before being upgraded to available. The veteran big man is averaging 2.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 7.5 minutes across the first two contests of the series. Today, 2:12 pm
  • Dwight Howard: 'I'm not retired from the NBA yet'
    Dwight Howard isn't ruling out a return to the NBA and wants to win a title with the Kings, according to Mark Haynes of The Observer.

    Advice: Could Superman don his cape for one last ride? In a recent interview Dwight Howard said, "I'm not retired from the NBA just yet" and added that he "would love to help the Sacramento Kings contend for a title". Howard, whose career accomplishments include eight All-NBA selections, five All-Defense selections and three DPOY awards, last played in the NBA during the 2021-22 season as a member of the Lakers. Dwight won a ring with the Lakers in the 2019-20 bubble as well. This past year Howard has been playing professionally in Taiwan for the Taoyuan Leopards. Today, 1:03 pm
  • Nikola Jokic drops 41 in losing effort Sunday
    Nikola Jokic contributed 41 points to go with 11 rebounds, four assists and a pair of three-pointers.

    Advice: Jokic was monstrous on the offensive end in this one, hitting 16-of-28 shots and 7-of-8 free throws to deliver his third 40-point effort of the 2023 postseason. Denver’s other four starters combined for 41 points on 15-of-34 shooting, and Jokic understandably focused his energy on scoring with so many teammates struggling. The four assists are his fewest of the postseason, and they match his second-fewest of the regular season. Jokic has been masterful for the entirety of the Nuggets’ playoff run and, despite the loss, he was the best player on the court again Sunday. The Nuggets suffered their first home loss of the playoffs, but Jokic will look to guide his team to a road win Wednesday in Miami for Game 3. Sunday, 11:32 pm
  • Bam Adebayo goes 21/9/4 w/ two blocks Sunday
    Bam Adebayo accumulated 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting Sunday in a win over Denver, adding nine rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots.

    Advice: As expected, Bam got the job done in the paint, and he was even more efficient than the 13-of-25 shooting night he had in Game 1 when he scored 26. Bam finished behind only Gabe Vincent (23 points, four triples) for team lead in scoring, and through two games, Adebayo is the team’s leader in points. Jimmy Butler has struggled on offense, racking up 34 points on 33 field goals, but the difference between Game 1 and Game 2 was Max Strus and Duncan Robinson hitting shots, and Miami’s bench playing a bit more consistently throughout the contest. Adebayo has had his way with Denver in the series thus far, and there’s no indication he’ll slow down in Game 3 back in South Beach. Sunday, 11:25 pm
  • Lovely to Love your lovin': K-Love goes 6/10/1/2
    Kevin Love scored six points Sunday and added 10 rebounds, an assist, two steals and two triples as the Heat defeated the Nuggets 111-108.

    Advice: Love was a DNP-CD in each of Miami’s last three games, but with Caleb Martin dealing with a non-COVID illness (yet still able to play), the former landed in the starting lineup Sunday. Love logged 22 minutes, his most since playing 23 in Game 4 of the second-round series against the Knicks, and turned them into quality production. It’s unclear what his role will be Wednesday in Game 3, but Coach Spo should give him a long look when considering his rotations for the rest of the Finals. Sunday, 11:19 pm
  • Goes off for 41 points in loss
    Jokic contributed 41 points (16-28 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 11 rebounds and four assists across 42 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 loss to the Heat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Jokic put up his best scoring total since his 53-point effort in Game 4 against the Suns. Jokic's measly assist total was a clear sign that he tried to carry the team on his back instead of depending on his supporting cast. Denver has a 12-5 record over the course of the playoffs and is 4-2 when Jokic fails to collect a double-digit assist total. Sunday, 10:05 pm
  • Flirts with double-double
    Adebayo supplied 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 40 minutes during Sunday's 111-108 victory over Denver in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

    Advice: Sizing up against Nikola Jokic is no easy task, but Adebayo got the job done once again despite failing to register a double-digit rebound total for the first time in the past four games. While he continues to distinguish himself defensively, his consistent scoring has been a hallmark of his playoff results. Adebayo had a career year in the category, averaging 20.4 points over 75 regular-season games. Sunday, 9:54 pm
