Fantasy Player Updates & News

Marreese Speights (calf) will not play in Game 3 on Saturday.

Speights is expected to miss the first five games of the Western Conference Finals, and Festus Ezeli is likely to start in his place. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Free agent F Royce White is drawing interest from teams and has an offer to play for the Clippers summer league team.

White is an interesting story, as the 24-year old was drafted 16th overall in 2012 by the Houston Rockets, but was held back by anxiety issues, headlined by a fear of flying. The Rockets were equipped to deal with White's mental illness, and he found himself off the team after playing a grand total of zero games. He logged three minutes with the Kings over three games in 2013-2014, but that has been the extent of his NBA career. The power forward is still very talented, and if a team like the Clippers can accommodate his anxiety issues and harness his talent, he could be a nice story next season. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Matthew Dellavedova will start for Kyrie Irving, who was ruled out before the game.

Irving will miss game two of the eastern conference finals, and is questionable for game three on Sunday, with knee tendonitis and a right foot strain. Dellavedova will start at point guard as long as Irving is out. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Hawks F DeMarre Carroll will start in Game 2 on Friday.

Carroll is dealing with a knee injury, and it is a bit of a surprise that he will be able to play on Friday. The Hawks did not sound confident about Carroll's availability just yesterday, but he will be able to play. The fact that the small forward was considered a game-time decision and nearly did not play makes it tough to envision him logging his standard 30+ minutes of playing time, likely causing Kent Bazemore to have a larger role in Friday's game. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Kyrie Irving remains questionable for Sundays game 3 of the eastern conference finals.

Irving has been banged up in the postseason, and in addition to dealing with a right foot strain from the first round of the playoffs, the point guard has knee tendonitis. He'll miss game two of the eastern conference finals on Friday, and may not be able to play on Sunday as well. With the all-star guard out, Matthew Dellavedova is expected to start and see the bulk of minutes.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Kyrie Irving will not play Friday night in game 2 of the Eastern conference finals.

Kyrie has been banged up for the last few games, and the Cavs will be taking their chances going forward by not playing their All-Star point guard. Expect Matthew Dellavadova to start in his place going forward.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak says next season will be Kobe Bryant's last with the Lakers.

Considering Kobe said that he was set to retire anyway this isn't some big revelation for Kupchak nor is he endowing us with any sort of breaking news here. Kobe's effectiveness on the court has massively diminished and his knee issues continue to hinder his performance. We're actually a little surprised he's even going back to the well one more time. Fantasy owners should not. Analysis: Howard Bender

Dwight Howard is listed as probable for Game 3.

Howard is dealing with a knee sprain still and will likely be dealing with it throughout the playoffs. The Rockets will continue to send him out there as they're in dire need of a big man in the middle once the Warriors have the ball. Analysis: Howard Bender

Bucks General Manager John Hammond said Jabari Parker is doing "extremely well” in his rehab from ACL surgery.

Parker will take it easy on himself over the summer and start to ramp up activity closer to training camp. He is expected to be ready for the regular season. Analysis: Howard Bender
