Fantasy Player Updates & News

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

LeBron James scored 23 points (10-20 FGA, 1-4 FTA) going 2-for-6 from three-point range with nine rebounds, seven assists, two steals an one block in Tuesday's Game 4 win over the Hawks.

James has been unstoppable this postseason as he is now averaging 27.6 points, 10.4 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 1.8 steals over his last 14 games. At this point it is hard to believe anyone will be able to come between him and his third NBA title so whether it is the Warriors or the Rockets both teams better be ready to step up their game to try and take down King James.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Paul Millsap scored 16 points (5-13 FGA, 6-8 FTA) with 10 rebounds and five assists against the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

Millsap finished the postseason averaging 15.2 points, 8.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists but it was not enough to hold off the Hawks from being eliminated on Tuesday night. Now that the season is over for the Hawks the team will have to make a decision regarding their power forward's shoulder, which may be require surgery this offseason, but it should not effect his fantasy value come next fall.  Analysis: Matthew Beck

Paul Millsap could reportedly require shoulder surgery this offseason.

With the Hawks being swept out the Conference Finals by Cleveland on Tuesday, this news broke rather quickly. Whether Millsap would be ready to go for the start of next season is unclear from this report. Analysis: Brett Talley

Update: Cavaliers GM David Griffin said that Kyrie Irving is not on a hard minutes limit, but the instruction is to play him in shorter bursts.

With a 3-0 lead over the Hawks, there's absolutely no reason for the Cavs to push Kyrie in Game 4. They're going to need all hands on deck and at full strength if they're going to knock off Golden State (probably). Analysis: Brett Talley

Kyrie Irving will play and start Tuesday night in Game 4.

It was questionable as to whether the Cavaliers would even start Irving but as they look for the sweep of the Hawks it would make sense they would want Kyrie to be apart of their Eastern Conference championship celebration.  Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Dwight Howard will not be suspended for incident in Game 4, league announces.

Howard was involved in an elbowing incident which result in a Flagrant-1 foul after he elbowed Warriors center Andrew Bogut in the face. His lack of suspension is key if the Rockets hope to beat the Warriors in Game 5. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Coach David Blatt says Kyrie Irving is questionable Tuesday night. He will go through warm-ups and then be reevaluated.

With the Cavaliers leading the Hawks 3-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, it would certainly be a risky move for the team to run Irving out there for Game 4. If the All-Star point guard does indeed play Tuesday night, he is likely to see limited minutes.  Analysis: Nate Miller

Kyle Korver will have surgery Wednesday on his ankle.

Korver missed Sunday's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals and will not be back in action until next season. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jason Terry says he will play next season, his 17th in NBA.

After averaging 7.0 points and 1.6 treys over 77 games for the Rockets this season, Terry has decided to keep going and participate in his 17th NBA season. Analysis: Nate Miller
