My lead yesterday was about a weekend of injuries, and as much as I wanted to stay away from injuries in today’s open, there’s just way too many.  Like that pilot in the Return of the Jedi when they attack the new Death Star.  “There’s too many of them!”  Sorry in advance Jake VZ – but I think the lead is Bradley Beal reportedly aggravating his leg injury and at the time of this post in the wee hours of the morning, the Wizards fear a prolonged absence.  Beal hurt the same leg with a broken fibula last year that ended his season prematurely.  In both my longer blurb in my top 100 and in my top 200 I tried to say I was worried, and only ended up with him on my autodrafted team.  By now, news has hit his little news icon on Yahoo and ESPN, so it’s going to be a little tough to sell at full price or even a slight discount if you’re hitting the panic button.  I’m worried myself.  I’m running in with Jodie Foster and a weird, gothy, tween Kristen Stewart into my Panic Room.  More precise news should come out today, but if for some reason you were about to cut Martell Webster, hold the phone and keep my boy.  I have been told I have too many “boys”.  But I like Webster a lot!  And called him a must add a few weeks back.  Trevor Ariza is also back and starting tonight, and the mere fact they’re not easing him in off the bench has me thinking his hammy must be doing pretty well.  Both Ariza and Webster are looking at big minutes for a stretch, and John Wall will continue to have this big offensive upside he’s shown in the past two games.  Here’s what else went down in the wide world of fantasy hoops last night:

Derrick Rose - If you hadn’t seen yet, he’s done for the year.  Sucks really bad for Rose.  Buzz kill!  I’m glad the Bulls and Rose just flat out said he’s done for the year.  They can’t go through what happened with him last year and neither can I!

Jimmy Butler - Still can’t put any weight in his foot and remains in Das Boot.  The Bulls started Tony Snell at SG yesterday.  To top that off, Utah actually beat the Bulls yesterday.  It’s that bad….

Marquis Teague - Played 15 minutes and managed to go 0-1 with a turnover and a foul and nothing else.  The towel boys have more impact on the game than him…

Luol Deng - Another nice game, and will be run into the ground for a while.  45 minutes last night in the OT game and will be getting huge runs like that for the foreseeable future.  He’ll need diapers for these runs.

Trey Burke - Not an awful line of 14/6/4 but 5 TOs and shot 5-17.  Kinda the lines I expect missing all the crucial developmental time in the preseason like he did.

Gordon Hayward - Hey when you’re shooting ice cold, you better be able to dime!  And the kid from Butler handed out a quality dimebag last night with 12.

Marvin Williams - 17/9/1 with three treys in a ridiculous 44 minutes.  Still not a big fan of his in fantasy in shallower leagues, but if he’s still out there in deeper, give him a look.

John Lucas III - Got 19 minutes, shot 1-8 for three points and a dime and nothing else.  Free Diante Garrett!

Derrick Williams - Traded to the Shaq-ra-mento Kings.  Will probably get used as a 3, even though he’s like a small 4.  Luc Richard Mbah a Moute moves his 5 names to Minnesota.  Williams has a little upside, but the Kings have been running wonky rotations all year and who knows what will happen with his usage…

Corey Brewer - 6 TOs last night.  What, did he steal the ball from himself?!  Jeepers.

Ricky Rubio - Everyone loves to labor on his inability to shoot instead of loving the 7/9/7/5 line.  Just love me!

George Hill - Season-high scoring for a 26/3/7/5/1 line.  Shot 9-13 and hit trey treys.  Why you hold out for the established guys!

Stupid Big Slow Old Al Jefferson – I just had fun calling him that in the comments yesterday…14/3/1/0/2 in 33 minutes yesterday.  A little underwhelming but I thought he looked good.  Still a buy low despite the nickname…

Kemba Walker - Continues to be on the right page, shooting 11-17 for 28/6/5.  Looked pretty damn good out there.  Damn my preseason hate!  It be damned!

Josh McRoberts - Multi-cat of small continues in large, with 5/7/5/1/1 last night and a three.  He needs a haircut.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - Just did nothing to assert himself in this game.  It’s really cooling off for a guy I liked a lot heading into the year.  I’d try to hold if possible, but tougher and tougher lately.

Jared Sullinger - He looked a lot more stupid big slow old than Al Jefferson.  Despite that, 5/8/2/1/1 solid line while shooting only 2-9.

Jordan Crawford - Got hot and starting banging threes.  T-Pain-ing it.  T-Paint it Black!  Ummm, yeah I dunno what that would reference… 5-11 but 4-6 from deep and 7-7 from the stripe for a nice 21/4/5 line.  I’m still not a huge believer and don’t trust Brad Stevens’ rotations one bit.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - There he is!  Great 14/2/3/2 line shooting 5-9 with two threes in 36 minutes.  Even with Will Bynum back, KCP started and got big run.  It helped it was a blowout to help nurture the rook, but KCP is starting to get into the 14-team league conversation.

Rodney Stuckey - Still shot well (7-11) but his slash cooled off a tad for 17/3/2.  I’ll never like you Stuckey!  I am Stuck on anti-You!

Andre Drummond - Only 25 minutes, 12/8/1/2/0.  The corner is still being slowly turned, the corner for me to not hate him, but just so very slowly…

Khris Middleton - Got the start, hit 8 of the first 12 Bucks points, was the only offensive bright spot, then got benched halfway through the first until the latter part of the 2nd.  Does Brad Stevens coach this team?! Ugh!  Ended the night with a very solid 5-9 14/5/2 with two treys when you consider it was 21 minutes.  Larry Drew emptied his bench and found out Middleton should still start, regardless.

Brandon Knight - Also inserted into the starting line-up as part of Drew’s “shake-up” I alluded to yesterday.  Was awful.  8/0/4 in 22 minutes with 6 TOs.  Turn this shizz around!  Hopefully his hammy can improve and he’ll get some confidence.

John Henson - Along with royal K Middleton, was the only Buck who, well, didn’t pass the buck last night going 7-12 for 15/7/1/2/2 in a near rainbow.  Still like Henson a lot.

Dwyane Wade - Still got it!  Well, sorta… If only he could play every game!  Stop shopping your show for syndication!  Say that three times fast…  21/6/12 for D Wade shooting 9-13.  Why I liked him as a buy low.

Mario Chalmers - Has a hurt hip.  He and Raymond Felton can start a hip club.

Mike Conley - Who left the window open!?  It was Gordon Hayward probably!  Abysmal 2-14 as the Grizz try to adjust to life without Marc-y Marc.  At least he handed out a dimebag to help ease the pain…

Kosta Koufos - Getting a long run as a starting C and was solid, going 4-7 for 8/13/2/0/2 in 31 minutes.  He’s pretty much J.J. Hickson.  But Greek.  And ownable in most leagues.

Terrence Jones - Cringggggeeeeeeee…. Omer Asik got 21 minutes.  Ruh-roh.  Only 11/5/2/0/2 last night, not horrible or anything, but you don’t like the 26 minutes from TJ and cry-baby-mcgoo getting comparable run off the bench in a close game.  Not much analysis as you’re holding TJ and hoping to throw eggs at Kevin McHale.

Francisco Garcia - Rainbow line!  That came outta nowhere… 6/5/2/2/2.  Just a fluke, but nice to see.

J.J. Hickson - He’s pretty much Kosta Koufos.  Hah, I keed, 22/8/1/3/1 shooting 8-11 and a decent 6-8 FT.  Still liking my call of him a must own when JaVale’s leg pulled a Bradley Beal.  I gotta boast on the right calls, don’t happen often!

Jose Calderon - Is he, gulp, turning into, gulp gulp, a glorified ThrAGNOF?!  The answer might unfortunately be yes… 12/0/4/0/0 hitting three treys.  I watched this game, and he just camps out there.  He just pitches a tent while watching Monta Ellis drive to the hoop… Jose C is averaging by far a career-high in threes and a seven-year low in Asts.  Does that make him droppable in shallow 10-teamers if you need a Sunday stream spot?  I actually think… yes….

Tiago Splitter - Rolled his ankle.  Severity is unknown but sounds like he could’ve gotten back into the game if not for a blow out.  Boris Diaw played a team-high 31 minutes for 13/5/2/1/0 as the Spurs are becoming the best real-life team and the worst fantasy team.  Free Kawhi!

Jrue Holiday - Rainbow it up in the blowout!  12/9/7/3/2 in a great line.  Jrue’s picked it up over his last 5 in his attempt to prove he’s a top-tier player.

Andrea Bargnani - Looks like a moron out there.  Sorry Bargs fans.  Now that is his real-life assessment, but in fantasy terms, shot poorly at 7-16 but a useful 16/6/3 line with a block and only 1 TO.  So he’s still a need-to-own guy for me, despite looking lost half the time at the eye level.

Nicolas Batum - Was the best overall player on the court at times last night against the Knicks.  Sorry Carmelo… 23/7/6/1/1 and made the energy plays.  All that said, he’s topped 20 Pts only twice now, and while obviously a multi-cat god, still isn’t going to be a top-20 player I don’t think.  But that’s just me.  And I really like Batum in real-ness.

Beno Udrih - In another start filling in for Felton, went 13/5/5 hitting 3-3 from deep.  He looked passable out there if you need a filler PG play during the week.

 

That’s it from me this week as I depart on a Thanksgiving adventure.  I’ll still be around to answer questions, and Slim & Dan will have their pieces up through the week to get you through the Holiday.  Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy a weekend of hoops and leftovers!

    Jeremy Evans gives me this strange tingling feeling I haven’t felt since… 9/5/2 plus 2 steals in 23 minutes. He’s not allowed to stay the night, yet, but we went on our first date last night and he was such a gentlemen. He promised me the world of steals and blocks. He even gave me a bouquet of 2 good %s. I blush as I pull the petals, “he loves me, he loves me not”. He might just be the one, a real keeper!

    Dropping DRose. Should I add Corey Brewer or Martell Webster?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Bob C: Good question. If you need 3s more Webster, Stls more Brewer. Those equal and assuming a long Beal absence once that is cleared up, I’ll lean Web

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: whoever is getting the run.if ariza cuts into websters mins then I’d want Corey

  3. See, this is why I read you all like my morning newspaper (coffee and all). I was planning to drop Webster today because I already had acquired Ariza and was looking to clear a roster spot. Not anymore!

    Going to make a run at Al Jefferson, too. Miles Plumlee & Terrance Jones. Will he accept? I doubt it but it’s not going to stop me from proposing it! I also have the services of Koufos. I’m eating up the waver wire and I’m going to use these hot adds to sell for star players. Or at least attempt too.

    Appreciate all you all do JB, have a great Thanksgiving!

    Hi,JB! I have Beal. I was offered Deron Williams or Wilson Chandler and Dalembert fort Beal-Olynyk. What do u think? I really don’t,know what to,do….

    • matt says:

      @Ciwa: I’d want the deron side myself

      @Ciwa: This Beal thing sounds no good, and Deron, while hurt too, has the best upside. I’d take him

    Holy moly, JB. Your autodrafted RCL team is a bad karma magnet. As a real life C’s fan I kind of want to trade you Jeff Green so that he’ll find some bizarre reason to miss games and aid in the tanking process. I want me some Jabari/Randle/Wiggins!

    Yoo – I’m in a H2H, 14 teamer, only 2 bench spots and I have MGasol. We only play one Center and I have Ibaka who I can slide over from PF.

    Should I pick up Koufos, Hickson, Henson, or whomever to pick up those Center numbers or can I ride it out until more news come out for Gasol’s timeline? My other issue is I have Jimmy Butler riding my bench as well which is killing me.

    Thanks!

    • Richie says:
      (link)

      @x-pac:

      Gasol will be out 6-10 weeks. I’d get Koufos now, if not him then Hickson.

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @Richie: Hix

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @x-pac: I’d get Hickson too, but I think Butler is more droppable. A lot lower upside and he’s still in a walking boot and can’t walk

  8. AJ says:

    Someone just dropped Beal, heard he will be back in 2 weeks, would you drop Trey, Korver or Terrence Jones for him?

    • Richie says:
      (link)

      @AJ:

      If you don’t need assists that badly I would drop Trey Burke

      • matt says:
        (link)

        @Richie: I’d drop korver

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @AJ: I think it’s Korver and yeah I would for Beal’s upside if he miraculously gets back that fast

    Stop beating up on Il Diva….Andrea’s trying her best….kidding, carry on.

    10 team H2H 11 cat (DD, TO, FG Missed)

    Give: Ty Lawson and Demarcus Cousins
    Get: Paul George and Serge ChewBlaka

    Too much, too little or just right?
    His team is dead last in BLKs by a mile so Serge is expendable in my eyes, his only 2 PG’s are Walker and Hill, but he’s still middle of the pack in ASTs somehow so I think Lawson would help his team as a big time AST guy/DD threat and DMC is a DD machine. I need a SF bad…I should probably aim lower than Paul George but I have plenty of trade chips and figured it was worth a shot.

    • matt says:
      (link)

      @Agent Zero: if you can get george and ibaka for those two what are you waiting for?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Agent Zero: Haha poor Il Diva! You shoulda seen his weird like hanging pump fake pass to no one and out of bounds. It’s probably not nearly enough, but can’t hurt to offer. I don’t think Serge is expendable at all, but you can float it out and see if a counter comes your way

  10. Spot on with the recap. Well done

    As you noted, Detroit game was over after 1st Quarter so I wouldn’t read much into the stat lines from everyone wearing a Pistons uni. However, Larry Drew still can’t coach, that fool should be canned quickly. In the vein of coaches who can’t understand NBA matchup basketball and should be canned, hello Brad Stevens! maybe he gets fired and ends up at UCLA in a few years… Some guys just don’t get the NBA game.

    I watched Rockets game last night, I think the reason you saw D12 and TJones minutes down was cause of the way the 2nd unit gelled and went on a big 3rd Q/ 4th Q run. In other words, match up and game flow dictated. So before you go and get your life sized Casspi tattoo, Id wait another 1-2 games. Maybe Im wrong on that, but dont think so… After all, Asik is still, a giant turkey (puns intended).

    • @El Burro:

      My “ADD” and stash pick-up from yesterday’s play is DERRICK WILLIAMS, following the trade from Minny to Sac-town. I think in most 12 teamers, he is a ‘depth’ add (depending on bench size) and in 14-20 teamers, he should be an immediate add, upside stash play. Kings are getting younger and sexier by the minute.

      For reference, I would look back to his 28-32 minute nights last year playing for the Wolves. He’s definitely a ‘tweener (3/4), which is his issue and he will likely play out of position as a SF, but could be a decent source of production — thinking like 12-14 pts / 5-7 boards, the occasional 3pm, maybe 1 steal, .5 block type line nightly with the minutes…

      JB – thoughts?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @EL Burro: I agree as an upside add, but I don’t think D Will is ready to be a 12-teamer add yet. He just never put it together. I agree with that production if he can get those minutes, but that’s the big if. They might not use him much, especially any time soon. I will get my Casspi tatto, with ASS really big right on my tuckus!

        • @JB Gilpin:

          I think , as is the case for most young dudes, its all about minutes. Sac is kind of a cluster fudge for consistency outside of Cousins, so I hear you — i think deeper leagues (14 +)where FA wire is thin, you gotta take the plunge and see what happens. Cut your worst guy style.

          If you look at the run he got last year when Love was out, he was more than playable in 12 teamers, and probably a fixture in most 14 team line-ups. While I agree 12 teamers can probably wait * see “now” (I prefaced depending on bench size), still think I’m gonna roll dice and stash in my 14-16 team leagues. If Malone gives him minutes, there are not many offensive threats on that team and he could easily hit those projections, in my very humble opinion.

          • JB Gilpin

            JB Gilpin says:
            (link)

            @EL Burro: Oh for sure I actually had him on a league for a little stretch. And I think that was even in a 10 teamer.14-16 totally agree. And he has upside to get into the 10-12 team mix, but he’s gotta impress Shaq-re-mento

      @Michael: Hmmm, I think KCP too, unless you need boards a tad more, then K Mid. I like both those guys more than Derrick Williams right now, need to see how the Kings run him

      • Michael says:

  16. Prodders says:

    What order would you put these guys in, with future trade value in mind (don’t need any cats in particular)?
    W Chandler, Ariza, Knight, Butler, Burke, T Evans, Varejao, stash Gallinari?

    Also, how are none of Bennett, Bynum, Varejao and Thompson getting anything good done in Cleveland? I guess because they’re splitting time, but still… pretty pathetic.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Prodders: Cleveland is a mess… Dellavadova to play 30 minutes a game?! Sheesh. I think it’s Chandler, Burke, Evans, Knight, Butler (if Jimmy B and he gets healthy quick, but that’s a big if), Varejao, Ariza then Galo stash. Galo is gonna be a good long while

      • Prodders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: PBev is just doing enough for me to stick with him, dropped Butler for Henson… Chandler is basically my lowest guy, will give him a bit more time otherwise drop him for Burke or someone.

        Do you think Tobias will get his starting job back, and decent (32mins+) run, v soon? Or think he’s stuck in a value-sapping timeshare / way out of shape? Surely the magic are just putting Affalo, Nelson and Davis in the shop window to try and trade 1-2 of them? After Tobias tore it up after the All Star break, surely it would be crazy not to build around him, Vuc and Harkless?

        Thanks again!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Prodders: Agree with the Butler drop. Yeah I think Chandler needs a tad more time with all he missed. 32 is pretty high for Tobias… Eventually, I think yes, but might be a while. It may indeed be after the trade window. Agree Harris is cheap and they should build around him. Those three vets have nothing to give for the Magic future

    So I’ve been offered Joe Johnson and spencer hawes for chris paul.
    I was also offered Joe Johnson and Deandre Jordan for Chris Paul.

    I’m in need of rebounds and could use a little help in blocks & fg%, but I’m thinking no to both.
    My other guards are Jeff Teague and Kemba Walker, what do you think? Should I counteroffer with Teague? The other guy really needs assists.

    • JB Gilpin

    I’m. A lucky guy. I have Jefferson, Deron, sanders, and I used to have Derrick rose. But now I don’t. So…….with me in the lead in3s, should I trade my Kevin Martin for his Steve Blake? My pgs are Jennings, Beverly, and deron…..worried about assist and fg%

      @Brian: Nice dealin’! Yeah I think adding some dimes will help ya, I’d do it

    • Thrilla says:

      @Brian: Wait a sec. DO NOT trade your Kevin Martin for his Steve Blake. Martin is 8th overall player in 9-Cat. He’s a legitimate impact player this year… Surely you can get more than Steve Blake, who’s career stats suggest he’s playing over his head. No need to buy high on him. Hold Martin.

      @Chasles Abimana: How long is long term? Probably Green either way. Sounds like a fine trade to me, not particularly a big fan of either but like the move.

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Also what do you think of some of these deals..
      My Davis for Deandre Jordan and Kemba

      My K Thompson and Davis for Ibaka and Wade

      K Thompson for Al Jefferson

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Klay Thompson was gonna be my suggestion so were on the same page. Would love the Jefferson move if you can make it happen.

      • Jake Van Zuiden says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Do you think Al can get back to his 20/10 old self? And you like that better than the other 2 deals?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Jake Van Zuiden: Maybe 18/8 but fairly close. I like the first deal too but I Iike that 2nd one a lot more

      @hamtime: I Ike George side and getting best player in deal

      • hamtime says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: thanks JB. In case the guy replaces middleton with say, terrence jones, do i still pull the trigger?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @hamtime: Makes it close, but I’d still take it Noah played really well without Rose in stretches last year

  24. Kevin says:

    Hey JB. thanks again for all your help.

    dropping danny green for someone who can give me some more pts and boards. 3pt and assists are extra pluses.

    who should I drop him for with the best upside/consistency? derrick williams (SAC), C Frye, J Henson, or lou williams? or maybe just keep green? i don’t exactly capitalize in the 3pt dept.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Kevin: Any time man! I like grabbing Henson for what you need, still a believer and he’s shown pretty good strides lately

  25. AJ says:

    Being offered Nene for Duncan? Would reject but Duncan being limited sux, thoughts, who you like best?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @AJ: Yea still Duncan, but crazy that it’s close. NeNe is an injury risk too

  26. Jon says:
    (link)

    Lamarcus Aldridge for Serge Iblocka straight up, a fair trade? I feel LMA is the better player right now but his declining FG% is worrisome. but he’s been rebounding and blocking a lot better these games, sell high in your opinion?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Jon: Yea a little bit, I’d rather have Ibaka definitely a fair trade

  27. Tsilaeri says:

    Thanks for the post!
    Phew, just a week after I traded Rose away! Ha!

    Which one do you like the most?
    PBev, Webster, Ariza? All available right now.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tsilaeri: Wow nice trade! Mannnn, close because I absolutely love Webster, but I still grab PBev still a believer

      • Prodders says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: We need a term for this… I’m a Beverleyver? A PBevliever? He is only owned in something like 17% of leagues… I’m sticking with him though, even if it sometimes looks like he can’t hand the ball off to one of the big boys quick enough.

    My team

    1.Rubio
    2. Kobe
    3. Lebron
    4. Batum
    5. N.vuecivic
    6. Chandler parsons
    7. Jeff teague
    8. D.favors
    9. Ryan Anderson
    10. Bbeal
    11. T. Arica
    12. T Burke
    13. N. Pekovic

    Should I drop BbEal for W. Chandler , g.green or TThompson. These are good players still available in my league. I’m 3-1 and in first place. Is BBEal worth keeping or does my team seem solid enough to maintain for 2+ weeks? What you say?? I’m in a H2H points league.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Tiny: Yea I think you gotta hold Beal and cross your fingers

  29. Kevin says:

    Hey JB, thanks for recommending me to drop Danny green for John Henson. Before I do that, I might try some trades with a name like Danny green.

    I’m trading Danny green and trey Burke away. Is aiming for Jordan hill or zach Randolph ok? Any other mid round value big men you would consider possible for my two guards?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Kevin: Can’t hurt to offer! Yeah I would like that deal for you if he takes it

  30. Rudy says:

    JB. I think I just made a master pimp trade. I gave away deroxan and got kemba walker. I saw it as a sell high on derozan and buy low on kemba. You like the trade??

    I have to stick with Tobias at this point, right? Or do I cut bait and add Koufas or Big Baby?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Fantasy Dick: Not liking this out indefinitely again… If you’re needing any production I think you can cut, prob for Kouf, but if your team is doin well you can wait it out

    yo JB in a trade

    team a gets: vucevic & holiday

      @Patrick: I like team B, Wall is the best player in the deal and I still like Vakanciunas ROS
