Latest Headlines

Andray Blatche (personal) will miss the next four games for the Nets.

That would put Blatche out until Saturday Jan. 4 when the Nets will play the Cavs. Mirza Teletovic will continue to be a big piece in the rotation and should be approaching the 30-minute mark over that span, making him worth a long look in standard leagues. Mason Plumlee and Reggie Evans should also see a sizable increases in minutes. Blatche owners should probably hold him unless they really need him for the upcoming week.

Jerryd Bayless (sore neck) and Jared Dudley (back) will play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

Bayless missed Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Celtics because of his sore neck, but he has since returned to practice and was never in danger of missing this contest. He averages over 22 minutes per game off the bench, and his return will likely push rookie Tyler Ennis out of the rotation.

Kirk Hinrich (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks, and it is unclear if he will be able to play in Game 2 on Monday.

He has reportedly "plateaued" in his rehab, so it looks like he could miss more time. With Hinrich out of commission, Tony Snell will see some minutes in the rotation Saturday. We will update Hinrich's status when we know more.

Derrick Rose (knee), Joakim Noah (hamstring) and Taj Gibson (shoulder) are good to go for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

Rose scared the Bulls when he left Wednesday's regular-season finale vs. the Hawks with knee soreness, but he made it clear that he sat out as a precaution. Rose made it through a full practice on Friday and his minutes could be on the rise in the playoffs. We will let you know how he holds up after the game. For what it's worth, this will be his first playoff series since the 2011-12 season.

Chandler Parsons (knee) is expected to be in the starting lineup vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

He missed the final six games of the regular season due to pain and swelling in his knee, but it looks like he is ready to go after going through a full practice on Friday, Parsons will likely have to spend some time defending James Harden, but his minutes will likely be held in check as he regains his conditioning. Owners in daily leagues should probably avoid him for now. Richard Jefferson will move to the bench Saturday, while Al-Farouq Aminu will play less as well.

Joel Embiid was reportedly fined thousands of dollars for showing up late and missing multiple rehab sessions this season.

Head coach Brett Brown recently said that he questioned Embiid's work ethic at times this season, so this report likely has some validity. This is definitely a story that he will continue to follow, and if you factor in the uncertainties surrounding his foot injury, he will be a high-risk, high-reward option next season. Hopefully, we will get a good chance to evaluate him at the summer league if he is cleared to play.

Head coach Terry Stotts said that Allen Crabbe could get the nod over C.J. McCollum in the first unit because of his defense.

"I think Allen complements Damian [Lillard] and [LaMarcus Aldridge]," Stotts said, "as far as being defensive minded, not needing shots, not needing the ball." This isn't that surprising, as Stotts has been known to frequently alter his rotations. McCollum could still see close to 30 minutes of action, as he has simply been too good to keep off the floor. If Arron Afflalo returns from his shoulder injury soon, Crabbe will likely fall out of the rotation, while McCollum's role should still be safe.

Larry Sanders was reportedly in Milwaukee this week, but sources close to him say that he doesn't have any desire to play professional basketball again.

Sanders has some personal issues to work through and recently said that he quit basketball to find his true purpose in life, so it doesn't sound like we will see him in the NBA any time soon. There is too much uncertainly surrounding Sanders to consider drafting him next season, but we will monitor this situation very closely in the off-season.

Jeff Green (back) is questionable for Game 1 against the Blazers on Sunday.

Sources have intimated that Tony Allen (hamstring) is the only Grizzlies player to be in jeopardy and he'll probably do anything he can to get on the court. Among the group of banged up players in Memphis, Green's injury status has been a back-burner issue so owners may want to use him as they normally would.
Apr 17 - 10:27 PM

David Lee (back) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

That means Festus Ezeli should be in the rotation along with Marreese Speights. Lee's back injury kept him out of action on Wednesday and the Warriors won't need him to kick off the first round. Draymond Green's minutes may also go up slightly.
Apr 17 - 5:40 PM

Nicolas Batum (knee) said he will play against the Grizzlies in Game 1 on Sunday.

He only had a knee bruise and he only needed to miss one game. Batum was logging minutes around 40 to close the season and he could be in that neighborhood in this series. Batum's numbers were awful against the Grizzlies in four games this season, averaging 6.5 points 4.5 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 treys on 32.4 percent from the field.
Apr 17 - 4:14 PM

Chandler Parsons (knee) is being listed as questionable for Game 1 against the Rockets on Saturday.

Parsons played some 1-on-1 on Thursday, and head coach Rick Carlisle implied that Parsons would be a go for Game 1, so things are progressing in a positive direction. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but if Parsons is unavailable, Richard Jefferson would draw the start with Al-Farouq Aminu logging extended minutes off the bench. Stay tuned.
