  • Player Notes
    Derrick Rose May 14 1:40pm ET

    New York Knicks guard Derrick Rose (ankle) is expected to suit up for Saturday's game against the Charlotte Hornets. Head coach Tom Thibodeau hinted that Rose's ankle injury was minor and they gave him a rest day on Thursday. To be fair, Rose played a season-high 39 minutes during Tuesday's game, while suffering an ankle injury. Alec Burks, Reggie Bullock, and Immanuel Quickley will see less minutes and touches with Rose likely returning on Saturday.

    Eric Gordon May 14 1:40pm ET

    Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon (groin) is not expected to suit up for the final two games of the regular season. He suffered a groin injury right after the All-Star break and hasn't been able to suit up since then. The team has no incentive to play Gordon at this point, while they tank for draft position. Expect guys like Jae'sean Tate and Khyri Thomas to continue getting significant playing time. Both of them have some streaming appeal in the final two games of the regular season for Houston.

    Khyri Thomas May 14 1:30pm ET

    Houston Rockets forward Khyri Thomas is reportedly signing a multi-year extension with the organization. He signed a 10-day deal with the team last week, but has played his way into their long term plans. Thomas is averaging 16.3 points, 5.0 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 30.8 minutes in four games. It's the end of the season on a tanking team, so his stats should be taken with a grain of salt. This is also an extremely small sample size for Thomas. Despite that, he should see significant minutes over the final few games, which will make him an interesting DFS option. Although, it's unlikely he gets this kind of playing time in Houston next season.

    Maxi Kleber May 14 1:30pm ET

    Dallas Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber (Achilles) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors. He had missed four straight games before returning on Tuesday. However, it sounds like the Mavs want to cautious with their young forward here following a back-to-back set on Wednesday. Willie Cauley-Stein and Dwight Powell will be asked to soak up minutes in the absence of Kleber. Neither of them are worth a look in DFS contests.

    Miles Bridges May 14 1:30pm ET

    Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges is expected to get back on the court for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat. He has missed each of the last four games while following the league's health and safety protocols. The Hornets are quickly falling in the playoff standings and desperately need to win. Bridges return would mean less playing time for Cody Zeller.

    Damian Lillard May 14 8:50am ET

    Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard went for a game-high 41 points on 16-for-23 shooting in Thursday's 118-117 loss to the Suns. Most of his misses came from behind the arc with a 2-for-6 effort. Lillard was 7-for-8 at the charity stripe and picked up five rebounds with five assists, one steal and three turnovers. Portland's superstar has scored 30-plus points in seven consecutive games ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale versus Denver. He's averaged 23.5 points on 41 percent shooting in two outings against the Nuggets this season, adding nine assists and 5.5 rebounds.

    Mikal Bridges May 14 8:50am ET

    Phoenix Suns small forward Mikal Bridges posted his second double-double of the year in Thursday's win over Portland, scoring 21 points and grabbing a game-high 11 rebounds. The 24-year-old shot 6-for-9 from the field and 6-for-6 at the line with a 3-for-5 effort from behind the arc. Bridges added two assists and one steal with two turnovers in 41 minutes. He stepped up big time on the glass, as Deandre Ayton (knee) missed his first game of the season. Dario Saric entered the starting five and finished with 12 points and five rebounds. The Suns play again on Saturday against San Antonio, which doesn't give Ayton a lot of time to recover, and Bridges will be expected to put in a lot of work on the glass again if Ayton isn't in the lineup.

    Chris Paul May 14 8:40am ET

    Phoenix Suns point guard Chris Paul was automatic from the field in Thursday's 118-117 win over Portland, shooting 11-for-14 en route to a team-high 26 points. He was 2-for-2 from outside and handed out seven assists with one turnover in 32 minutes. Devin Booker had a tough night with 5-for-17 shooting, so Paul played a big part in the victory, even though it was Booker who made a pair of clutch free throws to lock up the win. The Suns are fighting for the best record in the Western Conference, so expect them to go all out in the final regular-season games over the weekend. Both will be against the Spurs, meaning Paul gets to face a team that boasts the fourth-worst defensive record in the league against opposing point guards.

    Anthony Edwards May 14 8:30am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Anthony Edwards led the team in scoring for the 16th time this season on Thursday, finishing a 114-103 loss to Denver with 29 points on 8-for-16 shooting. He nailed four triples with nine attempts and finished 9-for-12 with his free throws, adding seven rebounds and five assists to his line with two blocks and one turnover. Edwards was very quiet at the start of his rookie campaign, but the first pick of last year's draft has had a solid first season in the league overall with 19.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.1 steals.

    Karl-Anthony Towns May 14 8:30am ET

    Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns registered his first double-double in five games on Thursday, notching 20 points and 11 rebounds in a 114-103 loss to the Nuggets. He shot 6-for-18 from the field and 4-for-7 from outside with a 4-for-6 effort at the line. Towns' night included four assists with five turnovers in 39 minutes. KAT is finishing off his sixth year in the league, which will be the fifth season without any postseason action for him. He completes the regular season with a pair of favorable matchups against Boston and Dallas, who both have had plenty of defensive problems against opposing centers in 2020-21.

    Nikola Jokic May 14 8:20am ET

    Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic scored 16 first-quarter points in Thursday's win at Minnesota, finishing the night with a game-high 31 points on 14-for-21 shooting. He pulled down 14 rebounds and dished out four assists with one steal, one block and two turnovers. The Joker has now gone for 30-plus points in five of his seven outings this month. Friday's matchup against Detroit is a wonderful spot to do it again, but head coach Mike Malone might decide to rest his star man with not much left to play for anymore.

    Justin James May 14 8:20am ET

    Sacramento Kings guard/forward Justin James had a wonderful game in Thursday's loss to the Grizzlies, scoring a career-high 31 points on 12-for-17 shooting. He missed just once with five attempts from outside and had a 3-for-4 record at the foul line with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 32 minutes off the bench. The Kings battled hard for a spot in the play-in tournament but fell just short. They have nothing to play for in the final two regular-season games, meaning James, who has been stuck on the bench all year, should get an opportunity to show what he can do.

    Jonas Valanciunas May 14 8:10am ET

    Memphis Grizzlies center Jonas Valanciunas picked up his 48th double-double of the campaign in Thursday's victory over Sacramento, scoring 24 points on 8-for-10 shooting and grabbing a game-high 13 rebounds. He was 8-for-8 at the foul line and finished things off with three assists, one block and two turnovers. Valanciunas has notched seven double-doubles in eight games, and he finds himself third on the league's double-doubles list behind Nikola Jokic (59) and Russell Westbrook (57). With Memphis facing Sacramento again on Friday and finishing the year against Golden State, Valanciunas has a great chance to get to 50 double-doubles for the season.

    Dillon Brooks May 14 8:10am ET

    Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Dillon Brooks led the team's offense in Thursday's win over Sacramento, finishing with 30 points on 13-for-28 shooting. He added six rebounds and three assists to his line with two blocks, one steal and one turnover, Brooks, who went 3-for-7 from downtown, finds himself on a scoring tear ahead of the final few games of the regular season. He has a chance to go off against the Kings and their league-worst defense again on Friday. Brooks is averaging 26 points on 48 percent shooting in the matchup this season.

    Stanley Johnson May 14 8:00am ET

    Toronto Raptors forward Stanley Johnson had the best game of his career in Thursday's loss to Chicago, leading all scorers with 35 points on 12-for-22 shooting. He was 6-for-13 with the three-ball and went 5-for-7 at the charity stripe with 10 rebounds, five assists and three steals. The Raptors have pulled the plug on their season, which gives bench guys like Johnson a chance to show what they can do in meaningful minutes. Expect him, and the likes of Malachi Flynn and Jalen Harris, to be busy in the final regular-season games as well.

    Zach LaVine May 14 8:00am ET

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Zach LaVine scored a team-high 24 points in Thursday's 114-102 win over the Raptors, shooting 8-for-15 from the field and 5-for-6 at the foul line with a 3-for-7 effort from outside. His line included five rebounds and two assists with three turnovers. LaVine should be licking his lips ahead of the next matchup against Brooklyn. He had a superb 41-point outing against the Nets earlier in the week when he shot 6-for-11 from downtown and 15-for-27 overall from the field.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo May 14 8:00am ET

    Bucks' F Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 69.25 fantasy points with 40 points scored, six assists and 15 rebounds in a 142-133 win over Indiana on Thursday night. Antetokounmpo has scored an average of 51.10 fantasy points in his last 5 games.

    Stanley Johnson May 14 8:00am ET

    Toronto's F Stanley Johnson scored 61.00 fantasy points with 35 points scored, five assists and 10 rebounds in a 102-114 loss to Chicago on Thursday night. Johnson has scored an average of 21.15 fantasy points in his last 5 games. Johnson is owned in very few, if any leagues.

    Coby White May 14 7:50am ET

    Chicago Bulls point guard Coby White notched his fifth double-double of the campaign in Thursday's victory over Toronto, scoring 17 points and handing out 10 assists. He also had one steal with two turnovers, while shooting 7-for-12 from the field and going 3-for-7 from downtown. White fell off the map a while back, but he's come back strongly to finish the regular season in good form. He gets to face the Nets next, against whom White started the week with a 16-3-4 line. Brooklyn has the seventh-worst defensive record in the league against opposing point guards in 2020-21.

    DeMar DeRozan May 14 7:50am ET

    San Antonio Spurs guard/forward DeMar DeRozan led his team with 27 points on 10-for-18 shooting in Thursday's 102-98 loss to the Knicks. He finished 7-for-9 at the foul line and had eight rebounds and four assists with one steal and three turnovers to complete his line. The Spurs clinched a spot in the play-in tournament on Thursday, so the final two regular-season matchups against the Suns will be dead-rubber games for them, which should give DeRozan a chance to rest up for the tournament. The team is finishing the regular season in awful form, but DeRozan has done well with five consecutive 20-point games.
