Joe Johnson Is The Utah Jazz’s Secret Weapon

“Iso” Joe Johnson has proven to be the difference maker in a heavily contested Utah Jazz versus Los Angeles Clippers matchup. Johnson has put in some otherworldly performances and is shooting 80 percent from the field and 67 percent from three-point range when the games are within five points with five minutes left in regulation or...

Al Horford Is The Boston Celtics’ Best Rebounder

Al Horford is the best rebounder the Boston Celtics have at their disposal, and that is a huge problem. While Horford has been averaging nine rebounds a game for the series, he is not a center that has been an outstanding rebounder at any point in his career. As a result, the Celtics are posting...

Norman Powell To Start Tonight

Norman Powell will get the nod again tonight with the Toronto Raptors sitting Jonas Valanciunas again for the pivotal Game 6.

Kawhi Leonard Is Superhuman

OK, so maybe he’s still human, but it is becoming harder and harder to believe. Kawhi Leonard has been on another level on both ends of the court these playoffs. Having set a playoff career high of 37 points in Game 2, he came back and topped that, pouring in 43 points in the overtime... Read More

Rajon Rondo Doubtful for Game 6

In what is a must-win game for the Chicago Bulls as they face elimination, they will likely have to attempt to solve the puzzle of beating the Boston Celtics without their talisman, guard Rajon Rondo. Rondo is still recovering from a fractured right thumb and torn ligament in his right wrist suffered in Game 2. With... Read More

Malcolm Brogdon Becoming A Difference-Maker

The Milwaukee Bucks’ Rookie of the Year candidate, Malcolm Brogdon, has continued what was a successful regular season into the playoffs.

Tyler Ulis Continues To Prove Doubters Wrong

Tyler Ulis has been doubted ever since entering the NBA, mainly due to his height. Now that he is getting his chance, he is proving all the doubters wrong and has been one of the few bright spots for the Phoenix Suns in the last third of the season. Following in the footsteps of former... Read More

Brandon Ingram Will Miss His Third Straight

The Los Angeles Lakers’ rookie forward, Brandon Ingram, will miss his third straight game tonight with patellar tendinitis.

Ingram has shown flashes of the potential he was... Read More

Richard Jefferson Out Today

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ Richard Jefferson will miss tonight’s game in Chicago due to a left knee injury. With Kyle Korver being ruled out for this one as well, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith will see increased minutes at shooting guard. While neither are great candidates to go off, Shumpert is likely the better play, as... Read More

Nikola Mirotic Continues Stellar Play

While it is no secret that Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic is a wildly inconsistent player, the pendulum has swung favorably for the Bulls as they make a late playoff push, with Mirotic playing some of his best basketball of the season at the most crucial point. With Dwyane Wade missing time due to injury... Read More

Marc Gasol Unlikely To Play Friday

The Memphis Grizzlies’ All-Star big man, Marc Gasol, is likely going to be sidelined Friday night with a foot injury. Gasol has missed the last three games, and while being a game-time decision on Friday, the Grizzlies are not optimistic he will be available. With JaMychal Green also potentially out, Zach Randolph will continue his... Read More

Sergio Rodriguez Out Until Next Week

Philadelphia 76ers backup point guard Sergio Rodriguez has already missed two games with a strained hamstring suffered against the Indiana Pacers last Sunday, and he is likely to miss at least two more.

Lance Stephenson Available For The Pacers On Sunday

Lance Stephenson, fresh off signing a three-year contract to return to the Indiana Pacers, will be available on Sunday for the Pacers’ showdown with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Brandon Jennings Is A Must-Add

Since joining the Washington Wizards, Brandon Jennings has proved to be a more than capable floor general for the Wizards’ second unit, recently orchestrating a 70-point bench scoring performance against the Brooklyn Nets. Jennings averages 13 assists per 36 minutes, the most in the NBA. His production speaks for itself. With averages of six points,... Read More

Kris Dunn Could Be A Sneaky Good Pickup

With the Minnesota Timberwolves now basically out of the playoff picture, rookie Kris Dunn is likely to get more minutes as the team looks to preserve Ricky Rubio and see what they have in Dunn at the same. While Dunn has not impressed much in his rookie season, his last two games have shown sparks... Read More

Gordon Hayward Diagnosed With Left Quadriceps Contusion

Gordon Hayward may be sidelined with a quadriceps contusion for Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. With fantasy playoffs in full swing, this could be a crushing blow to some owners.

Jon Leuer Regains His Form

Those who stuck with Jon Leuer this season through his ups and his downs, or those that picked him up still believing in his ability have been rewarded handsomely recently, as Leuer has begun to regain the form which made him a viable fantasy play at the beginning of the season. Leuer scored a team-high... Read More

K.J. McDaniels Making The Most Of His Opportunity

The Brooklyn Nets, left with very little to play for, have been showcasing their youth and have also been making vast improvements in the process. A significant part of this resurgence is the revival of K.J. McDaniels. With averages of 11 points on 55 percent shooting, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block... Read More

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Continuing His Solid Play

While it has been a disappointing 2016-17 season for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, he seems to have turned a corner, at least temporarily. Hollis-Jefferson has been stepping up his rebounding, now having recorded three of his five double-doubles on the season in the month of March. Over his last three games, Hollis-Jefferson is averaging 12 points, 12 rebounds,... Read More

Brandon Ingram Out On Sunday

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Brandon Ingram is out for Sunday’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers with patellar tendinitis.

Frank Kaminsky Is Elevating His Play

While Charlotte Hornets fans will not be surprised with this headline, those with less exposure to the relatively small-market team may be unaware that Frank Kaminsky has managed to transfer his game to the NBA level quite smoothly so far.

T.J. Warren Doubtful For Thursday Night

Phoenix Suns head coach Earl Watson sounded doubtful in Thursday’s media session, saying that T.J. Warren (foot) may not suit up for their matchup with the Brooklyn Nets. Warren, who has been playing incredibly well of late, will be a big loss for the Suns in this matchup of two bottom-dwellers. Warren’s averages over the... Read More

P.J. Tucker To Start In Place Of Suspended Serge Ibaka

P.J. Tucker is the man who will profit as a result of Serge Ibaka’s one-game suspension. While Tucker has not been entirely fantasy relevant in the past few weeks, this opportunity is one that bodes well for daily fantasy owners. Tucker will split Ibaka’s minutes with Patrick Patterson and Jakob Poeltl, but he is likely... Read More

Skal Labissiere Continues His Solid Play

If you are looking for an under-the-radar big man to fill out your playoff roster, Skal Labissiere might be your man. The Sacramento Kings’ rookie has been getting the green light with the Kings having very little left to play for, and he has been making the most of it. While Willie Cauley-Stein remains the...

Jeremy Lin To Start And Play Big Minutes

Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson has declared Jeremy Lin as active for tonight’s game versus the Phoenix Suns.

Sean Kilpatrick Surging For The Nets

Sean Kilpatrick has been playing some of his best basketball of the season recently, even leading the lowly Brooklyn Nets in scoring during a rare road win over the playoff-bound Memphis Grizzlies.

Alex Len Will Try To Play Wednesday

While there was lots of promise and expectation surrounding Alex Len at the start of the season, most of that has faded.

Alan Williams Is A Must-Add

Phoenix Suns power forward Alan Williams has continued to make the most of his opportunity, and is now firmly established in the Suns’ rotation. Williams set a franchise record last week, becoming the first Sun to post double-doubles in five consecutive games as a reserve. Williams’ hot play has been mightily rewarding for fantasy owners...

Lavoy Allen Out Tonight

Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play tonight in New York. Allen seemed to have turned a corner earlier this month, stringing several nice games together for an Indiana Pacers team that is looking to bolster its frontcourt in any way it can.
