• According to Casey Holdahl, Aminu will not participate “due to continued and unresolved organizational challenges with the Nigerian Basketball Federation”.

    Aminu will have more time to rest and get ready for training camp with the Blazers. He will be playing more power forward and will likely compete for minutes against Meyers Leonard and Moe Harkless. Look for his fantasy value to take a dip after the Blazers added some new pieces to the rotation. 

Fantasy News

  • Spencer Dinwiddie - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Spencer Dinwiddie scored 18 points with four boards and one steal in Saturday's 112-108 loss to the Sixers.

    Dinwiddie continues to play well off the bench along with his fellow guards Caris LeVert and D'Angelo Russell. The Nets let this one slip away and will now have to win in Philly to keep their season alive.

  • Jarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets

    Jarrett Allen scored 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block in Saturday's Game 4 loss to the Sixers.

    Allen had a nice final stat line, but he was getting worked by Joel Embiid all game. He also had a costly turnover at the end of the game when Tobias Harris, Embiid and Ben Simmons trapped in on the block – Harris may have gotten away with a foul.

  • D'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets

    D'Angelo Russell scored 21 points with six assists, seven boards, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Sixers.

    Russell played well in this game outside of his 2-for-10 shooting on two-pointers, and even hit a few clutch shots down the stretch. He continues to give the Sixers fits on offense, but the Nets came up just short in this one.

  • Caris LeVert - G - Brooklyn Nets

    Caris LeVert played 42 minutes in Saturday's Game 4 loss scoring 25 points with five rebounds, six assists, one setal and three 3-pointers.

    LeVert was expected to play more in this game after only logging 23.7 minutes per game over the first three. He once again looked healthy and commanded the game at times. After watching today's game you could not have guessed he suffered a gruesome injury earlier this season.

  • Joel Embiid - F/C - Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid was unstoppable in the Sixers' Game 4 win posting 31 points, 16 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and six blocks on Saturday.

    Jarrett Allen had absolutely no chance against a one-legged Embiid. He's clearly the best player on the floor in this series and the Nets will have to get creative in defending him, or hope for an injury, if they want any chance at coming down from a 3-1 deficit.

  • Tobias Harris - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris tallied 24 points, eight boards, six dimes, one block and one steal in 43 minutes of work in Saturday's win against the Nets in Game 4.

    Harris seemed fairly quiet in this one but he still managed to come away with a great line, as he does sometimes. We'll see if he's tired for Game 5, but they will get an extra day of rest for travel.

  • Mike Scott - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Mike Scott logged 27 minutes and hit a go-ahead three with 19.7 seconds left in the game and the Sixers held the lead to take a 3-1 series lead.

    Scott also grabbed eight boards in this one and played a lot down the stretch with Jimmy Butler out due to ejection. The Sixers could not get past the four or six point mark for most of the game but finally closed the gap and took the lead towards the end. This game was surely the most exciting of the playoffs so far.

  • Jimmy Butler - G/F - Philadelphia Sixers

    Jimmy Butler was ejected in Game 4 in the third quarter for escalating a fight started by Jared Dudley, who was also ejected.

    Butler was protecting Joel Embiid after Dudley shoved Embiid following a foul on Jarrett Allen. Butler was 4-for-6 from the field with 11 points, four boards, four assists and two steals and the Sixers will certainly miss him as they try to come back against the Nets in this one.

  • Torrey Craig - F - Denver Nuggets

    Torrey Craig will start Saturday's Game 4 over Will Barton.

    This was somewhat expected as Barton has disappeared so far in the playoffs. Craig will give the Nuggets a lot of defense in the starting lineup and will hopefully let Barton do his thing off the bench.

  • Jared Dudley - F - Brooklyn Nets

    Jared Dudley and Jimmy Butler have been ejected from Saturday's game after instigating and escalating a fight in the third quarter.

    Joel Embiid blocked Jarrett Allen and form Dudley's angle it appeared Embiid whacked Allen's head. He got mostly ball, but Dudley pushed Embiid after the play, which led Butler to push Dudley, which led to a full on fracas that bled into the front row on the baseline. If Embiid had not gotten a flagrant foul on Allen earlier in the series, this whole ordeal likely doesn't happen. Dudley finished the day with eight points in 20 minutes after drawing the start.
