  • Jaylen Brown (hip pointer) in a lot of pain
    Celtics GM Danny Ainge said that Jaylen Brown (right hip pointer) is in a "lot of pain."

    Advice: Ainge still called Brown questionable, so it sounds like he's shaping up to be a game-time call. Brown has had a strong run in the playoffs and is arguably Boston's best defensive option on LeBron James, so it will be a huge blow for the Celtics if he can't go. Expect to see some bigger lineups if Brown can't play with more minutes falling to Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko. Rotoworld.com 27 minutes ago
  • Kings host FA workouts for Alonzo Gee & more
    The Kings hosted eight free agents during workout on Wednesday, including Alonzo Gee, Phil Pressey, JaKarr Sampson and Ben Bentil.

    Advice: We're very early in the free-agent process and there's no reason to think any of these players will hold fantasy value, on the Kings or any other team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:46 pm
  • Jaylen Brown (hip) questionable for Game 5
    Jaylen Brown (right hip pointer) is questionable for Game 5 on Thursday.

    Advice: He's been a key piece to the Celtics these days, especially with Isaiah Thomas (hip) out for the season. Brown played 20 minutes in Game 4 and he's likely looking at more minutes, assuming he's healthy enough to go. If he can't go at home, there should be more big-ball lineups with Jonas Jerebko while Kelly Olynyk may play more. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:09 pm
  • Report: MIN interested in Derrick Rose as FA?
    The Timberwolves are reportedly interested in pursuing Derrick Rose as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: There were a lot of rumors flying around during the trade deadline that the Wolves were interested in trading away Ricky Rubio in a package that would net them Rose, so it does appear that Tom Thibodeau has a clear interest in reuniting with his former point guard. If Rose does wind up wearing a Timberwolves jersey next season, that would likely queue the end of Rubio's run in Minnesota. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 am
  • Jamal Murray (groin) running, taking jumpers
    Jamal Murray (groin) has progressed to light running and getting up jump shots.

    Advice: Murray was recently cleared to begin basketball-related activities after undergoing surgery back in April, although he's still not been cleared for contact, and as of right now, Summer League doesn't seem like a very realistic option. Still, he has plenty of time to get ready for the 2017-18 season, and he could see a big jump in his development during Year-2, particularly if the Nuggets lose Danilo Gallinari during free agency.

  • Seth Curry more confident going into Year-4
    Seth Curry said that Rick Carlisle putting him on the floor for big minutes in meaningful games helped his confidence during his first year in Dallas.

    Advice: "We obviously had a lot of injuries early on this season, so some of the young guys got an opportunity to play big minutes," said Curry. "A lot of time the young guys come in and play minutes, but it’s not really meaningful basketball. We had a lot of meaningful minutes to play trying to win games, and it helped me out to get my confidence going, playing every night and trying to play well." Curry put in career-highs across the board during his first year with the Mavs, and he'll make for a fine mid-round pick in next year's drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 am
  • Pat Connaughton could make the jump to MLB
    Pat Connaughton hinted during a recent interview that he may consider taking his talents to the MLB.

    Advice: Connaughton still has one more year remaining on his rookie deal with the Trail Blazers, but only the first two years of that contract were guaranteed, and he really hasn't seen many opportunities during his first two years in the league. "[I'm] not going to unrealistically chase a dream if it appears that dream is getting farther and farther away." said Connaughton. He was drafted by the Orioles during the fourth-round of the 2014 MLB draft, and Orioles executive VP has made it clear that he would welcome him to the team should he opt to switch careers and play professional baseball. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:39 am
  • Zach LaVine (knee) making solid progress
    Zach LaVine said he's making solid progress in his recovery from his torn left ACL.

    Advice: "Everything is going well. I have progress right now, doing everything I can do to get better—shooting, strengthening, lifting, all that good stuff," said LaVine. "The doctor said my knee is as healthy as it can get at this point right now." LaVine is still only able to run on an AlterG Anti-Gravity treadmill, but according to his teammate Ricky Rubio (who has also dealt with an ACL tear), LaVine is ahead of schedule in his recovery. That being said, LaVine remains without an official timetable to return, and there are no guarantees he'll be ready for the start of the 2017-18 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 am
  • San Antonio an option for Chris Paul as FA?
    Zach Lowe of ESPN stated during a recent podcast that he believes the Spurs could be a legitimate option for Chris Paul as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

    Advice: "There's been a lot of rumblings about Paul, and I think that's real," Lowe said of CP3 potentially joining the Spurs as a free agent. "I think there's mutual interest there. I don't know how real it is given the Clippers can offer a gigantic amount of money and are also a really good team; and the Spurs, like I said, have no sort of cap flexibility to get there. I'm very curious about what they do this summer and who's on the team next year." If Paul wants to chase a ring, his best shot of realizing that goal may be in San Antonio, but he'd have to take a pay cut to make it work. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am
  • Marcus Smart shoots 1-of-9 in Game 4 loss
    Marcus Smart fell back to earth in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 loss to the Cavaliers, scoring eight points on 1-of-9 shooting.

    Advice: Yikes. He had nowhere to go but down after his incredible 27-point performance on 8-of-14 FGs in Game 3, but the law of averages caught up with the career 35.8 percent shooter. He made his second straight start at PG and dished out six assists with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 40 minutes, but he didn't make his usual impact on the defensive end in this one -- Kyrie Irving went nuts for 42 points. If the Celtics hope to stave off elimination at home for Game 5 on Thursday, Smart has to play better on both ends. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:56 pm
  • Deron Williams (illness) plays 18 minutes
    Deron Williams (illness) played 18 minutes in Tuesday's Game 4 win vs. the Celtics, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting with one rebound, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: D-Will has been a disappointment in the postseason, but the Cavs don't really have another option because they don't trust rookie Kay Felder. Kyrie Irving did tweak his ankle in Tuesday's win, but he's not expected to miss any time. Expect Williams to play his normal role with minutes in the teens going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:45 pm
  • Kyrie Irving drops 42 points in Game 4 win
    Kyrie Irving went off for a playoff career-high 42 points in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 win, giving his team a 3-1 series lead.

    Advice: With LeBron James in foul trouble for most of the night, Irving helped the Cavaliers erase a 16-point deficit and dropped 21 of his 42 points in the third quarter. The entire arena went silent when Irving rolled his left ankle near the end of the third quarter, but he was able to stay in and said after the game that he felt "great." Maybe he sits out of Wednesday's practice to be safe, but expect him to be ready for Game 5 on Thursday in Boston as the Cavs look to close out this series. You can check out the incident in the link below. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:08 pm
  • Deron Williams (illness) will play in Game 4
    Deron Williams (illness) is a go for Tuesday's Game 4 against the Celtics.

    Advice: Williams sat out shootaround, but he was never expected to miss tonight's game. He should continue to flirt with minutes in the lower-teens, which doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Wizards hope to sign John Wall to extension
    The Wizards "top priority" this offseason will be signing John Wall to an extension, according to CSN Washington.

    Advice: Wall is coming off the best season of his career. In 2016-17, Wall became just the third player in NBA history to average at least 23 points, 10 assists and two steals per game. Becuase he was named to an All-NBA team, he is eligible to sign a Designated Player Veteran Extension this summer. The extension would be worth $168 million over four years, beginning in 2019-20. However, according to the report, Wall "wants to see a bigger picture plan on where the franchise is headed before committing." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:36 am
  • Deron Williams (illness) probable for Game 4
    Deron Williams (illness) missed shootaround on Tuesday morning but is expected to play in Game 4 vs. Boston Tuesday night.

    Advice: Williams' performance has been mostly disappointing this postseason. Over the Cavs last seven games, he is averaging 3.4 points, 3.6 assists and 1.6 rebounds in 14.8 minutes, while shooting 37.0 percent from the floor and 22.2 percent from downtown. In the first three games of the ECF, Williams is just 2-of-11 from the field. The Cavs have been able to cruise through the East with little help from their bench but will need D-Will and company to step up if they hope to take home another title. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:58 am
  • Knicks would like to revisit Rubio trade talk
    ESPN is reporting that the Knicks would like to re-engage the Minnesota Timberwolves in trade talks involving Ricky Rubio this offseason.

    Advice: The Knicks and Wolves were purportedly close to swapping Derrick Rose for Rubio at the trade deadline back in February, before that deal dissolved. Over the second half of last season, Rubio played some of the best basketball of his career. In 24 games after the All-Star break, Rubio averaged 16.0 points, 10.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds. Rose ended up tearing his meniscus. Also, Rose is now a free agent, so it is unknown what the Knicks could offer that would entice the Wolves to part with Rubio. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:30 am
  • Knicks interested in free agent P.J. Tucker
    The Knicks have shown preliminary interest in free agent P.J. Tucker, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: The Knicks were terrible defensively last season, allowing 108.7 points per 100 possessions and ranking 25th in the league in defensive efficiency. Thus, it makes sense they would target a defensive stalwart such as Tucker. The problem for New York is that they will likely have to overpay Tucker to get him to sign in NYC. Tucker will have plenty of interested suitors and, at age 32, it's probably safe to assume he'd prefer to play for a contender at this stage of his career. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:22 am
  • Patrick McCaw tweaks ankle in win
    Patrick McCaw tweaked his right ankle in Monday's Game 4 win over the Spurs, but he later returned and finished with six points (2-of-4 shooting), four rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples in 17 minutes.

    Advice: He had his ankle re-taped and seemed fine after returning, but he gets nine days off to recover anyways. The Spurs went super small tonight with Jonathon Simmons at the four, so McCaw replaced JaVale McGee in the first unit with Zaza Pachulia (heel) out again. Andre Iguodala should be much healthier for the NBA Finals and will take on a larger role, so McCaw's minutes may trend down in the NBA Finals. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:31 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (left knee) plays 22 minutes
    Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) played 22 minutes in Monday's Game 4 win over the Spurs, finishing with seven points (3-of-6 FGs), six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers.

    Advice: Iguodala was considered probable to play, and while he didn't have a formal minutes cap, it's obvious that the Warriors were keeping an eye on his workload. The Warriors will need Iguodala's minutes to be in the 30s with a potential matchup with LeBron James and the Cavs looming, but luckily he gets nine days off to get back to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:24 pm
  • The end? Ginobili scores 15 in Game 4 loss
    Manu Ginobili scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with seven assists, one rebound, three steals and one 3-pointer in Monday's 129-115 Game 4 loss as the Spurs were eliminated from the postseason.

    Advice: Making his first playoff start since 2013, Ginobili became the 24th player in NBA history to score 3,000+ postseason points. Ginobili will be 40 years old in July, but he hasn't decided if his NBA career is over -- he said he will take 3-4 weeks to discuss it over with his family. "I'll have to choose between two truly wonderful options," he said. One of the craftiest players in NBA history and a four-time champion, Ginobili should have a spot in the Hall of Fame waiting for him regardless of what he decides. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 pm
  • Klay Thompson's struggles continue
    Klay Thompson's struggles continued in Monday's Game 4 win over the Spurs, scoring 10 points on 3-of-13 shooting.

    Advice: He grabbed six rebounds with one assist and one triple in 34 minutes. Thompson hasn't been himself in the postseason with averages of 14.4 points on 38.3 percent shooting, a far cry from his regular season scoring average of 22.3 points on 46.8 percent shooting. With nine days off until the NBA Finals, Thompson's struggles will be a major talking point with a potential matchup with the Cavaliers looming. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:08 pm
  • Curry scores 36 as Warriors sweep Spurs
    Stephen Curry dropped a game-high 36 points in Monday's 129-115 Game 4 win as the Warriors swept the Spurs.

    Advice: The Warriors will be back in the finals for the third year in a row. Curry shot 14-of-24 from the field with six rebounds, five assists and five 3-pointers and has never looked better, averaging 27.9 points per game in his previous 11 playoff games. Curry said after Game 3 that he's been battling a sore right (shooting) elbow for a little while, so the extra time off will be key -- Game 1 of the NBA Finals isn't until June 1. He will be looking to redeem himself after a poor showing in the Finals in 2015-16. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:54 pm
  • Patty Mills scores 14 points, Spurs eliminate
    Patty Mills scored 14 points on 4-of-13 shooting in Monday's Game 4 loss, adding four rebounds, three assists, one block and three triples in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He's going to be kicking himself all summer because he was very disappointing in this series, but Mills did have a solid 2016-17 campaign with regular-season averages of 9.5 points, 3.5 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 44.0 percent shooting in 21.9 minutes per game. The PG will hit free agency this summer and turns 29 in July, so he can expect a massive raise after playing for just $3.5 million this season. Dejounte Murray is probably ready to take on more responsibility in San Antonio, so it's not a lock that Mills will be back with the Spurs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:46 pm
  • Jonathon Simmons scores 13 in loss
    Jonathon Simmons scored 13 points on 5-of-15 shooting in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors as the Spurs were eliminated from the postseason.

    Advice: Simmons logged 25 minutes as a small-ball four, adding five rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. You could argue that Simmons was San Antonio's most important player in the postseason not named Kawhi Leonard (ankle), so he can look forward to a significant pay raise this summer. Simmons is a restricted free agent, but the Spurs won't have much financial flexibility to bring him back unless Pau Gasol opts out. The Spurs may end up having to choose between Patty Mills or Simmons, but a move away from San Antonio would likely be good news for his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 pm
  • Dejounte Murray impresses in Game 4 loss
    Dejounte Murray was impressive in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors, finishing with nine points (2-of-7 FGs, 5-of-7 FTs), seven assists, two rebounds and five steals in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He also set a new Spurs record for most steals in a playoff game (5), passing Manu Ginobili (4). Coach Gregg Popovich and the Spurs are very high on the 20-year-old PG and he could potentially be the starter on opening night next season -- Tony Parker (quad) isn't going to be ready to go right away and Patty Mills becomes a free agent this summer. Expect Murray to light it up at the summer league. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:37 pm
  • Ginobili starts Game 4, Anderson to bench
    Manu Ginobili was a surprise starter for Game 4 vs. the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He wasn't listed as the official starter, but coach Gregg Popovich isn't the most transparent coach with his lineups. With San Antonio trailing 3-0, this could be a great time for the Spurs to showcase Ginobili in what could be his final NBA game. Kyle Anderson will return to the bench. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:08 pm
  • McCaw will start Game 4, McGee to bench
    Patrick McCaw will start Game 4 vs. the Spurs on Monday with JaVale McGee returning to the bench.

    Advice: The Spurs are starting a small-ball lineup with Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Jonathon Simmons and LaMarcus Aldridge, so the Warriors will counter with Stephen Curry, Patrick McCaw, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. JaVale McGee will come off the bench, but he should still be involved with Zaza Pachulia (heel) out again. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:05 pm
  • 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 Monday, 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 Monday, 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. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:47 am
  • 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 Monday, 8:16 am
  • 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 8:24 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Curry says McCaw was 'amazing'
    Stephen Curry said Patrick McCaw was "amazing" in Game 2 vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: "Obviously, with Andre Iguodala (knee) out, it’s the next-man-up philosophy," Curry said. "Everybody says it, but when you have a guy like Pat who doesn’t really know when his minutes are going to come, he always stays ready. We just told him to be aggressive, make the right decision and make things happen, and he did that the whole game. That was a huge pickup for us." Head coach Steve Kerr suggested to Mike Brown to use McCaw in Iguodala's role and the rookie delivered, scoring 16 points on 6-of-8 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, three steals and three triples in 27 minutes. If Iggy sits out in Game 3, McCaw will be on the DFS radar as a punt option. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:02 am
  • Patrick McCaw scores 16 points in blowout
    Patrick McCaw scored a playoff career-high 16 points in Tuesday's Game 2 win over the Spurs.

    Advice: It's hard to put a lot of stock into this performance since the Warriors won by 36, but McCaw was excellent all night and stepped up in the absence of Andre Iguodala (knee). He shot 6-of-8 from the field in 27 minutes with five assists, three rebounds, three steals and three triples, helping the Golden State bench score a season-high 63 points. This will likely go down as his best game of the postseason, but expect him to be in the rotation again in Game 3 if Iggy sits out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:16 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
  • Dejounte Murray scores eight points
    Dejounte Murray scored eight points with six assists, six rebounds, four steals and five turnovers in 27 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Warriors in Game 2.

    Advice: The rookie shot just 3-of-12 from the field with five turnovers, but at least he was in attack mode and it's easy to see why the Spurs are so excited about his long-term potential. Murray rewarded his DFS owners in garbage time, but don't expect him to see this type of workload if Kawhi Leonard (ankle) returns for Game 3 on Saturday. Patty Mills added just five points in 21 minutes, while Manu Ginobili had two points in five minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:56 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
  • 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 Monday, 4:14 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 Monday, 10:44 am
