• LeBron James - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers were a major disappointment in LeBron James’ first year with the franchise, and James was a mild letdown with top-15/25 fantasy value.

    James suffered the first serious injury of his career, a left groin strain that shelved him for 17 straight games and ultimately led to him playing in just 55 contests (top-45/65 total value) as rest and load management days stacked up once the playoff chase was over. LeBron’s fantasy value fell from its first-round perch as his efficiency waned to .510 from the field (a four-year low) and a career-worst .665 from the line on 7.6 attempts per game. The rest of his numbers were predictably solid at 27.4 points, 8.5 rebounds, 8.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 threes, but James also looked disinterested at times this season and seemed frustrated with his teammates for long stretches. Perhaps the Lakers have learned their lesson and will fill out the roster with better shooters this summer, though Magic Johnson's sudden resignation doesn't make it look like things are under control here. That said, this is the first time in a long time that LeBron, who has logged grueling minutes in deep playoff runs for over a decade now, will get a full summer to rest and recover, and he’s probably going to have something to prove next season. Should be fun.

  • Jordan Bell - F - Golden State Warriors

    Jordan Bell will start at center in Monday's Game 4 for the Warriors.

    Bell has played between 11 and 15 minutes in the three conference finals games, and he's unlikely to play too much more than that tonight. Look for Kevon Looney to continue to get more minutes than Bell tonight.

  • Alfonzo McKinnie - F - Golden State Warriors

    Alfonzo McKinnie will start for Andre Iguodala in Monday's Game 4 vs. the Blazers.

    McKinnie grabbed nine boards in 21 minutes in Game 3 and has gone 1-for-1 on threes for three straight games. Steve Kerr mentioned earlier that Jonas Jerebko would also get more minutes with Iguodala out.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala (left leg) will not play in Monday's Game 4 against the Blazers.

    The Warriors will look to close out the series in Portland without Iguodala, Kevin Durant, and DeMarcus Cousins. The Finals doesn't start for ten more days, so Iggy should be able to get healthy by then.

  • D.J. Wilson - F - Milwaukee Bucks

    D.J. Wilson (left ankle soreness) is questionable for Game 4 against the Raptors on Tuesday.

    If Wilson is able to return, he won't be more than bench depth.

  • Dwight Powell - F/C - Dallas Mavericks

    According to Chris Haynes, Dwight Powell will turn down his $10.2 million player option and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

    At just 27 years old, Powell is likely looking to get a longer deal with more guaranteed money. However, there are a litany of fours and fives that could be on the market this summer, making this an interesting decision for Powell. With Kristaps Porzingis returning from injury, Powell may seek more minutes elsewhere. A return to Dallas is still certainly in the cards for him.

  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby (appendectomy) and Patrick McCaw (personal) remain out for Game 4 against the Bucks.

    Anunoby started doing light work about a week ago and could be close to a return for Game 5 or if the series goes any further. It is unclear why McCaw has missed time, but we wish him the best. He isn't in line for rotation minutes in this series anyways, especially with how well Norman Powell is playing.

  • Andre Iguodala - G/F - Golden State Warriors

    Andre Iguodala (left calf tightness) is listed as questionable for Game 4 on Monday.

    Iggy left in the first quarter of Game 3 before returning. He only logged 18 minutes overall in the game. If he can't go, Shaun Livingston and Jordan Bell would take up the bulk of his minutes, while Jonas Jerebko and Alfonzo McKinnie could see a few extra as well.

  • Malcolm Brogdon - G - Milwaukee Bucks

    Mike Budenholzer is inclined to stick with the current starting lineup for Game 4.

    Bud mentioned he likes Malcolm Brogdon and George Hill off the bench, and he has every reason to do so. Even if there were going to be lineup changes, we wouldn't hear about it until right before tip-off, but don't expect any.

  • James Ennis III - F - Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis III has declined his $1.8 million player option and is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

    Ennis played a crucial role for the Sixers down the stretch and will likely look to secure a multi-year deal after showing his worth.

  • Tim Connelly - Team - Denver Nuggets

    Tim Connelly will remain with the Nuggets as their President of Basketball Operations.

    The Wizards were trying to pry Connelly away from the Nuggets after meeting on Friday, but it seems that Connelly likes where he is and wants no part of a decimated Wizards' team.
