Fantasy Player Updates & News

Some Bulls players didn't endorse Tom Thibodeau's return.

Like any other situation in any sport, not every player on the team is always a big fan of the coach. It sounds like the Bulls are in need of a coaching change and that seems to be the way they've been viewing this offseason anyway. Thibodeau will likely move on. Analysis: Howard Bender

Klay Thompson must complete concussion protocol to be cleared for the NBA Finals. Klay couldn't drive home Wednesday night and threw up a couple times when he got home.

Thompson took a knee to the ear from Trevor Ariza and was bleeding from it and dizzy as well. The finals are still about a week away, so he does have plenty of time to get better. Analysis: Howard Bender

Klay Thompson scored 20 points (8-14 FGA) going 4-for-6 from three-point range with one rebound, four assists and one steal against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Thompson logged his second straight 20-point performance to help give the Warriors the edge on their way to the NBA finals. He is now averaging 19.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 3.0 three-pointers this postseason as he continues to have the best season of his young career.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Stephen Curry scored 26 points (7-21 FGA, 9-12 FTA) going 3-for-11 from three-point range with eight rebounds, six assists and five steals against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Curry once again stole the spotlight on Wednesday night as he helped lead the Warriors to a matchup against the Cavaliers for the NBA Championship. The reigning NBA MVP is now averaging 29.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 4.9 three-pointers through 15 postseason games as he continues to be unstoppable and on a mission. Analysis: Matthew Beck

James Harden scored 14 points (2-11 FGA, 10-13 FTA) with six rebounds, five assists and three steals against the Warriors on Wednesday.

Not only did Harden struggle offensively, he managed to set an NBA playoff record with 13 turnovers in Wednesday's Game 5 loss to the Warriors. Harden will have a lot to think about this offseason but there is no doubt he remains an elite fantasy option moving forward.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Dwight Howard scored 18 points (5-13 FGA, 8-13 FTA) with 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks against the Warriors on Wednesday.

Despite managed to average a double-double this postseason, Howard's efforts were not enough to get the Rockets to the next level. After playing only 41 games this season Howard will look to get himself back to 100 percent health and return to his dominant ways we all know he is capable of performing.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Dwight Howard got a technical foul during Wednesday's game which means he would be suspended for game 6.

If the series were to go to a game six, the Rockets would be without Howard, unless he gets the technical foul rescinded. Houston can’t win this series without a dominating presence down low, but before they look ahead to paying without Howard, they need to win this game first. Analysis: Colby Conway

Melvin Hunt is currently the front-runner for the Nuggets' coaching job.

The team has also been linked to Mike D’Antoni, but Hunt is still considered to be the front runner of the job. Hunt was 10-13 when being named the interim manager and he will need a lot of help to get this team where they want to be. It all starts with them having the seventh selection in the upcoming NBA draft. Analysis: Colby Conway

Shelvin Mack suffered separated right shoulder in Tuesday night's game. He will have surgery next week.

Mack was a backup to starting point guard Jeff Teague and he played pretty well. In roughly 15 minutes per game, he averaged 5.4 points, 2.8 assists and 1.4 rebounds per game. Until he is a regular starter, his fantasy value will remain low. Analysis: Colby Conway

Update: Kyle Korver had surgery to repair ligament damage in his ankle and will be out three months.

Losing Korver was a huge blow to the Hawks and it definitely affected their game plan for the rest of that series with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Korver had a solid year for the Hawks, averaging 12.1 points per game while shooting 49.2 percent from beyond the arc. Korver will continue to be a solid source of threes when he returns next season. Analysis: Colby Conway

Pelicans had a formal interview Tuesday with Jeff Van Gundy.

Van Gundy last coached in 2007 for the Houston Rockets before becoming a broadcaster for the past eight seasons. He had success during both head coaching stints with the Knicks and Rockets leading them to playoff births.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Beno Udrih will undergo surgery on his injured ankle.

Udrih's surgery is being labeled as a minor procedure, but will keep the veteran point guard out of the Eurobasket tournament this summer. Analysis: Nate Miller

Pistons are reportedly interested in free agent DeMarre Carroll.

Carroll definitely did plenty to enhance his free-agent value by averaging 14.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.8 treys over 16 playoff games this year.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Paul Millsap may require offseason shoulder surgery.

With Millsap set to become one of the better players on the free agent market this offseason, this could definitely hinder the All-Star forward's bottom line. Analysis: Nate Miller

Kevin Love will look around in free agency, a new report says, with Celtics, Rockets and Lakers as options.

It appears that Love's stint with LeBron James and the Cavaliers may come to an end after just one season. With the way that Cleveland has been able to make a run to the NBA Finals largely without Love in the mix, the team may have already come to the conclusion that they do not need him. Analysis: Nate Miller
