4/25:Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart (thumb) made his first appearance since March 3 on Tuesday night, playing a solid 25 minutes in Game 5 against the Bucks, which he finished with nine points, five rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal. It wasn't all pretty, though, as he committed five turnovers and shot just 2-for-7 from the field. Smart clearly has some rust on him. We can expect him to get better with each game, though, so he should be a solid DFS addition in the second round if the Celtics get there. Terry Rozier's minutes will be under threat by Smart.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4/25:Boston Celtics forward Semi Ojeleye was in dreamland Tuesday night, making his first NBA start in a playoff game against Milwaukee. The rookie from SMU had a decent performance as well, scoring five points and collecting seven rebounds in 31 minutes on the floor. Ojeleye has shown some good promise throughout the year when he's gotten enough minutes, so he's worth keeping an eye on. The Celtics had their best defensive performance of the series with him starting and Al Horford at center, so it seems likely that head coach Brad Stevens will keep the same setup in Game 6 on Thursday.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4/25:Boston Celtics shooting guard Jaylen Brown didn't manage to shoot well in Game 5 against the Bucks, finishing 5-for-13 from the floor, but he still had another impressive performance, which he ended with 14 points, six rebounds, two steals, and a block. He also led the team with a plus-10 rating, playing 38 minutes -- a team high shared with Al Horford. This year's playoffs really have been like a coming out party for Brown and there's no reason to believe that his rise will suddenly stop. He'll be out to register another strong performance on Thursday in Game 6.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4/25:Boston Celtics point guard Terry Rozier ended a slump with a decent performance on Tuesday in Game 5 against Milwaukee, scoring 16 points and dishing out five assists. He also had three rebounds, one steal, and one block, shooting 4-for-10 from the floor. Marcus Smart (thumb) was back in the mix, so it looks like his return sparked Rozier a little, as he had done some really shocking shooting in the last two games. Smart didn't yet rob much playing time from Rozier, logging 25 minutes to his 33, but it's likely that Rozier's role will start to diminish now a bit, which means that you should look elsewhere for your DFS point guard.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4/25:Boston Celtics forward/center Al Horford picked up his second double-double of this year's postseason campaign on Tuesday, scoring 22 points and grabbing 14 rebounds in a Game 5 victory over the Bucks. He also had three assists and two blocks, shooting 7-for-15 from the floor, including 2-for-5 from behind the arc. Horford played a lot more center this time and he was much more involved in the offense. The adjustment worked, so we can expect head coach Brad Stevens to play the same way in Game 6 on Thursday. Horford is a very strong DSF play at the moment.--Taavi Pailk - RotoBallerSource: ESPN

4/24:Utah Jazz power forward/center Derrick Favors put up another solid stat line in his club's Game 4 victory. Favors was efficient, connecting on six of his nine attempts from the floor while finishing the night with 13 points. Favors was also able to snag four rebounds while swatting away two shots and picking up one steal in 33 minutes of action. Favors has been excellent in this series, carrying over similar stats from his season averages, as this is just what the Jazz needed from him. Favors is worth a grab for his consistent play and a healthy price tag in DFS for Game 5 as the series shifts back to Oklahoma City.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell's 33 points broke a club record for points in a playoff game for a rookie, beating out Karl Malone's 31 that he had in 1986. Mitchell was electric, converting 13-for-28 from the floor while adding seven rebounds with four assists. To add to the amazing line, he did not commit a single turnover. Mitchell is not playing like a rookie, averaging 27.5 point in the series' four games thus far and with his hot hand, he is worth a roster spot if his price tag is right for Game 5 when the series shifts back to Oklahoma City.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Utah Jazz point guard Ricky Rubio provided another great outing in Game 4 of their series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Rubio struggled a bit with his shot, making just 4-for-12 from the floor while finishing with 13 points. Rubio supplemented his line by adding eight assists and hauling down six rebounds with four turnovers on the night. Russell Westbrook was in his face all night on the defensive end, which affected the Thunder's defensive rotations and led to Westbrook picking up four fouls in the first half. It did not affect Rubio too much and this chippy play will most likely continue in Game 5, where we can expect Rubio to stuff the stat sheet once again.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles knocked down five more makes from deep as his club dominated the last three quarters in Game 4 of their series against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Ingles got going again, knocking down five of his 11 attempts from downtown en route to 20 points. Ingles did not stop there by dishing out four dimes and grabbing three boards while notching a steal and a block on the night. Ingles has come to life in the series' last two games, averaging 20.5 points and making 10 total triples in the two games. Paul George tried everything to get in the Aussie's head in this one, but it seemed to add fire to Ingles' play on the night. Ingles is always worth riding when he is hot and this makes him an appealing add for Game 5.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert controlled the paint once again for his club in a 113-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. Gobert was efficient from the floor, making 7 of 11 shots while connecting on 16 points and hauling down 10 rebounds. Gobert also chipped in a block and a steal and was once again able to contain Steven Adams in the painted area. Gobert has given the Jazz everything they need on the inside at both ends of the court in this series and with his consistency, he is definitely worth a look at the center spot in DFS for this reason.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams was a bit quiet on the night but still provided a decent line in his club's loss to the Utah Jazz. Adams finished the night with nine points on 4-for-9 from the floor while grabbing seven rebounds and adding two blocks. Adams was able to control his fouls in this one but seems to not have much left for the offensive end while banging with Rudy Gobert throughout the night. Adams has seen his numbers dip in this series, and they will need the Kiwi to step if they want to have any chance of taking Game 5.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony continued his terrible shooting in Game 4 of his team's series against the Utah Jazz. Anthony could not get things going, shooting five of 18 from the floor to finish with a disappointing 11 points. He did salvage his line by grabbing six rebounds and adding some decent defensive stats of one steal and two blocks. Melo has been everything but effective in this series, making just 37.3 percent of his shot from the floor and a dismal 23.1 percent from three while averaging only 14.3 point in the four games. Anthony has not scored more then 17 points in any of the games in this series, but maybe he can get things going in Game 5. He is worth a look, as he is well overdue and his price tag will be dipping because of his play of late.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George recorded 32 points in the chippy matchup against the Utah Jazz. George converted nine of his 21 shots and was able to connect on all 12 of his attempts at the line, but it was just not enough. George also snagged six rebounds and added two steals but could not control the ball, turning it over six times. George was in Joe Ingles' face throughout the game trying to get in his head, but it did not seem to affect the Aussie and the Jazz used this chippy play in their favor, steamrolling through the final three quarters. George has put up some big lines in this series, and even though he has not been efficient, he is worth building your squad around in Game 5.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/24:Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook continued to struggle with his shot and had foul trouble in his club's Game 4 loss to the Utah Jazz. Westbrook could not get going once again, making just 7-for-18 from the floor to finish with 23 points in this pivotal contest. Westbrook was able to add 14 boards and three dimes in this chippy matchup. Westbrook was just not himself in this one, letting his emotions get in the way while racking up four fouls before the half. The Thunder look destined for an early exit from the playoffs unless their superstar can work a miracle and is able to turn things around for his club.--Gianni Costantiello - RotoBallerSource: espn

4/23:Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill (back) is questionable for Game 5 versus the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday. Jose Calderon drew the start at point guard with Hill sidelined for Game 4. The MRI on Hill came back clean, but he can't seem to shake the injury. Hill said he had four shots in his back, but he's still unable to sleep. It does not sound like Hill is going to be ready for game action by Wednesday. Calderon is expected to draw another start if Hill is unable to play.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Mark Montieth
