Player Notes

  • Gordon Hayward scores 26 points in Game 7 win
    Gordon Hayward finished Utah's series-clinching win on Sunday with 26 points (9-of-20 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), eight rebounds, three assists and a pair of 3-pointers in 42 minutes of action.

    Advice: Hayward scored just three points in nine minutes during Game 4 in Utah, due to food poisoning, but in the other six games he averaged an impressive 27.2 points, 2.7 threes, 8.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.8 steals. He played an exhausting 41.0 minutes in those games, and should be just as busy in a tough matchup vs. Kevin Durant and the Warriors in the second round. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:57 pm
  • Kelly Oubre scores 12 points in 26 minutes
    Kelly Oubre started the second half of Sunday’s Game 1 loss to the Celtics with Markieff Morris (ankle) going down, tallying 12 points, two triples one rebound, two blocks and one turnover in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Oubre might be starting in Game 2 if Markieff Morris (ankle) is unable to give it a go, and he’ll need to step up in a big way for Washington to have a chance. He did a nice job on both ends of the floor, and he might be someone to consider in DFS if Morris does indeed spend Game 2 on the sidelines. For what it's worth, Morris said after Game 1 that he intends to play in Game 2. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:38 pm
  • Al Horford just misses a triple-double in win
    Al Horford fell one rebound shy of a triple-double on Sunday, ending his evening with 21 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds, one 3-pointer, one block and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Horford is the current leader in assists amongst centers this postseason by quite a wide margin with 7.0 a night, and he did an excellent job of helping facilitate the Celtics’ offense today. He was also incredibly efficient on the offensive end, going 10-of-13 from the field, and he made Marcin Gortat uncomfortable by forcing to step out and guard him on the perimeter. Kelly Olynyk also was solid in 18 minutes off the bench, tallying 12 points, four boards, two dimes, two triples and two turnovers. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:53 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas nets 33 points in Game 1 win
    Isaiah Thomas scored 33 points during Boston's Game 1 win over Washington on Sunday, adding five 3-pointers, nine assists, one rebound, one block and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Thomas had his front tooth knocked out fighting around a screen during the first quarter, after which he picked up his tooth, handed it to one of the Boston trainers and proceeded to drain back-to-back triples. IT4 put in averages of 27.8 points, 2.3 triples, 8.0 assists, 4.0 boards and 3.3 turnovers through four games against the Wizards during the regular season, so he should be big in this second-round series.

  • Jason Smith (calf) is fine for Game 1
    Jason Smith (calf) will be "fine" for Game 1 vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He played through a left calf contusion in Game 6 vs. the Hawks and finished with just two rebounds in 11 minutes, but coach Scott Brooks confirmed that he will see his usual backup center minutes in Game 1. Expect him to see minutes in the teens. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:42 am
