Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo said that he will consider resting players like Deron Williams (ankles) and Joe Johnson (heel) down the stretch.

Uh oh. Carlesimo spent six years as an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich, and it seems he's stealing a page from Pop's playbook. After explicitly praising Pop's willingness to bench his stars, Carlesimo said, "We could be looking at having to [rest players] because it's the best thing for those guys." With Brooklyn comfortably situated at fourth place in the East, D-Will is high on the list of candidates for random DNPs down the stretch.

Luis Scola will join George Hill, Evan Turner, Rasual Butler and Roy Hibbert in the starting five for the Pacers tonight.

Scola and Turner look like decent fantasy plays tonight, but we'd stay away from the rest of them.

Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett are out for the Nets on Wednesday, while they'll use a makeshift starting lineup of Marquis Teague, Jorge Gutierrez, Marcus Thornton, Jason Collins and Andray Blatche.

Mysteriously absent from that list is Mason Plumlee, who has been playing well, although he could still come off the bench. Deron Williams is also out, while Alan Anderson could play a few minutes. And if you're still trying to figure out who Gutierrez is, you're not alone.

Kyle Korver, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll, Mike Scott and Pero Antic will start against the Bucks on Wednesday.

The starters will likely have some limited minutes tonight, so fantasy owners might want to watch out for guys like Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver. Mike Scott should still be solid and could have a nice line.
Apr 16 - 6:42 PM

Tim Duncan and Marco Belinelli are out for the Spurs on Wednesday.

The kicker is that Gregg Popovich says he has no idea who he's going to start tonight. Stay tuned.
Apr 16 - 6:39 PM

The Thunder will start their normal crew in Wednesday's finale and are trying to beat the Pistons to secure the No. 2 seed in the West.

This should mean that Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka all play pretty normal minutes. However, if the Thunder get up big anytime after halftime, it could be bench city for all of them. Additionally, Brooks said that once the playoffs start, any minutes restrictions that Westbrook has been under will be lifted.

Tyson Chandler will sit out Wednesday's meaningless finale for the Knicks.

The starting lineup is Pablo Prigioni, Iman Shumpert, J.R. Smith, Amare Stoudmire and Cole Aldrich. Aldrich had 13 points and 13 boards on Tuesday, so we expect more of the same from him tonight.
Apr 16 - 6:20 PM

Paul Millsap is expected to rest on Wednesday night against the Bucks, while the rest of the Hawks should be "available."

Mike Scott looks like a good bet for success tonight, but while guys like Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver and Pero Antic are available, that doesn't mean they'll play heavy minutes. Be careful when selecting Hawks in daily lineups.
Apr 16 - 5:53 PM

Rajon Rondo, Jared Sullinger, Kris Humphries and Jerryd Bayless will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Celtics announced he's dealing with a hamstring injury, which is not the same as his shin injury from earlier this month. He was back in the lineup on Monday night after missing some action over the weekend, but he won't play tonight. Rondo played just 30 games this season, averaging 11.7 points, 5.5 boards, 9.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.9 triples. He'll have the entire offseason to get ready for next year, which wasn't the case this year.
Apr 16 - 5:38 PM

Jameer Nelson (groin) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

His season ends with averages of 12.1 points, 3.4 boards, 7.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 triples. With Nelson out, guys like Doron Lamb and Andrew Nicholson have stepped up, but both are risky plays in fantasy leagues. Victor Oladipo will start again.
Apr 16 - 5:21 PM

Chris Paul is not with the team for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

J.J. Redick and Blake Griffin are also not with the team. The Clippers can still move up to the two seed with a win and a Thunder loss, so they apparently would rather rest their guys tonight. With Paul out, Darren Collison is likely looking at a very busy night.
Apr 16 - 2:45 PM

The Warriors will play Wednesday's game without Stephen Curry, Andre Iguodala and David Lee, and they may also rest Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

They'll go with a second-string starting unit of Steve Blake, Jordan Crawford, Harrison Barnes, Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong. This leaves them with a threadbare bench all available players are likely to play huge minutes in the season finale, while the typical starters get some well-deserved rest.
