Fantasy Player Updates & News

Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak said that "it looks like Julius Randle has recovered completely."

Randle suffered a fractured right tibia on the first night of the regular season and was lost for the year. The No. 76 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft will now start from scratch and hope to carve out a role for himself this season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Kyle Korver is awaiting a second opinion on his injured ankle and a course of treatment has not yet been determined.

Korver is trying to find a way back into this series before the Hawks get eliminated, so he'll have someone else check his knee out. It's doubtful that anything changes though so expect the Hawks to have to stick to Kent Bazemore as a starter. Analysis: Howard Bender

Al Horford was ejected from Sunday's game against the Cavaliers after elbowing Matthew Dellavedova.

This is a huge blow to the Hawks chances to win Game 3 given that they are already without Kyle Korver. Mike Scott will likely see the most playing time off the bench with Horford now ejected. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Cavaliers GM David Griffin said Kyrie Irving was feeling really good after coaches put him through tests and it’s possible that if the team continue to win, Irving won't play again this series.

There is little reason for the Cavaliers to rush Kyrie back to the floor if they don't feel they need him in order to beat the Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals as a healthy Irving will need to play a major role if they hope to be NBA Champions. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kyrie Irving will not play in game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Matthew Dellavedova will likely start in his place on Sunday night, so they should be alright at point considering his recent run of success.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Even though Kyrie Irving warmed up to see if he could give it a go in Game 3 vs. the Hawks Sunday, David Blatt said he is being evaluated.

The Cavs would obviously be thrilled if Kyrie could give it a go on Sunday, but considering their 2-0 lead in the series already, it would be tough to believe that they are going to push him. If he can't play, expect Matthew Dellavadova to start at point guard.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Paul George still isn't fully recovered from the broken leg that he suffered last season.

George still has a few months to recover before the start of NBA training camp, so this news is not particularly worrisome just yet. George looked very good in limited minutes at the end of the season, and he will be one of the most intriguing players heading into fantasy drafts this fall. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Hawks F DeMarre Carroll (knee) will play in Game 3 Sunday.

The Hawks Need Carroll to play and be effective if they are to have any chance of climbing back into their series with the Cavs. With Kyle Korver out for the rest of the playoffs, Carroll and Kent Bazemore should see most of the wing minutes though Dennis Schroder will likely play more as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Kyrie Irving is taking part in Sunday's shootaround.

As late as Saturday night, it was rumored that Irving may be sidelined for the entire Eastern Conference Finals, so this news is encouraging. The Cavs own a 2-0 lead over the Hawks as the series heads to Cleveland.  Analysis: Kevin Luchansky

Kent Bazemore will start for the injured Kyle Korver.

Bazemore has averaged 4.4 points and 2.7 rebounds in 16.1 minutes per game coming off of the bench in 14 games this post-season. Bazemore scored at least 10 points in five of the seven games that he played more than 30 minutes this season, making him a decent DFS sleeper. Analysis: Brad Costilo

K.J. McDaniels (elbow) is listed as probable for Game 3 on Saturday, but unlikely to see the court.

It's a very odd situation, as the Rockets have him listed at probable, meaning that they are optimistic to play, but it still appears that he is "unlikely to play," per reporter Adam Wexler. He has yet to play in the playoffs, and even if he can play will likely be limited in terms of playing time. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Update: Kyle Korver is out for the remainder of the playoffs with ankle injury.

Awful news for the Hawks, who are down 0-2 to the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Kent Bazemore and John Jenkins will have to step up their play to cover the loss of the starting shooting guard for Atlanta. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson
