So… It was a ridiculous weekend of injuries with the NBA pulling its best NFL impression.  “Look how many people we can hurt too!”  Right now the safest big sport might be hockey… The survivors of this NBA-wide injury bug should barricade themselves in a giant prison.  OK, so that’s not exactly the best analogy… Look out for the Governor!  Arguably the biggest injury over the weekend was another knee giving out for Derrick Rose, who tore his meniscus and is having surgery some time today.  This is about the worst thing that could’ve happened for fantasy this season.  No, not because I’m a Rose owner… But because of all the Rose questions!  Of course this would happen for a second straight year.  So obligatory memo, statement, press release – Razzball’s official stance on answering questions on Rose will involve no guesses or speculation to his return!  Well, Pete, Slim, & Dan can… I guess.  But I’m not doing this again!  “Hey JB, when’s the end of the world?”  “When am I going to win the lottery?”  “How in God’s green earth did the Patriots win last night?”  “When will the Spurs finally kick out all the vets and give Kawhi Leonard superstar touches?!”  I just don’t have the answers!  We saw Russell Westbrook go down with a meniscus injury, only to need a second clean-up surgery.  Rose has said he’s leaning towards a reattachment procedure that would cost him the season, plus Rose has his other knee just off the ACL.  His knees have gone the way of Kyle’s knees in that South Park episode after his expletive-plasty.  Hopefully Rose’s surgeon is part-Borg and can get something mechanical going on in there.  “He’s more machine now than man…” Dude, I just crossed sci-fi swords there in a major fail… Here’s what else went down across fantasy hoops over the weekend:

Marc Gasol - The other big injury.  Has a Grade 2 sprain of his MCL.  Yikes.  Gasol has a more definable timetable of 6-8 weeks floating out there and doesn’t have to go under the knife.  And that’s a saving grace for surgeons as I don’t think any operating tables are that big!  I saw a couple comments get in over the weekend about the injury, and I think Gasol should be a hold in almost all leagues, even without IR spots.  I just think his upside is too big to cut and let someone else snatch him up on the wire.  And when he’s back, he’ll get his minutes as his knee allows, which I don’t think is comparable for a guy like Larry Sanders, who has been cut in a lot of leagues as well.  Send Gasol get well soon cards and hope you can eat the lost time!

Trey Burke - Was inserted into the starting line-up yesterday, and shot like Gordon Hayward!  Going to be a season long joke…  Went 2-9 in just over 20 minutes for 4/2/4.  Yikes.  Two straight blurbs with yikes… Bust out the Thesauras!  What do we have here… ummm… no results!  Eff you Thesaurs.com!  Brutal game for Burke, but at least he didn’t get hurt.

Marvin Williams - Started as well in a big Jazz shake-up.  The most fantasy relevant 73 point game for a team in recent memory.  I had to put “for a team” in there as to not mislead you into thinking Marvin dropped 70+!  Hey, us Heels fans are flying high after beating the Pitinos… Anyway, I think Marvin is a solid role player, and while the stat sheets have been filling out decently before this start, I’m not his biggest fan for fantasy.  Disappointed last night for 4/3/0/1/1 in 22 minutes.  Only an add in the deepest of leagues, even with the starting role.

Enes Kanter - “Cause you had a bad day! You’re taking one down!  You sing a sad song…” You get the picture.  Benched then sprained his ankle.  Look out 2012 Charlotte Bobcats!  Jazz are coming for ya.  The fact they had to do X-Rays is no good news, plus we’ve seen ankle injuries derail some players thus far.  Droppable in most leagues even though I like him, in the deepest of leagues like REL, a semi-buy low.  Williams would continue to start at the 4 in the interim most likely.

Jeremy Evans - I couldn’t believe he went 11-11 in his first two games this year!  Pretty remarkable… Finally missed a shot going 1-2 2/6/1/1/1 in 18 minutes last night.  He’s got some raw-athletic upside and a starter’s role upside with Richard Jefferson and Marvin your starting Jazz Fs.  Worth a look in deep leagues.

Diante Garrett - So I’m a little biased as his REL owner, but he keeps being a useful NBA player.  He’s not going to all the sudden pull a Lin-sanity, but 7/1/2 in 21 minutes and the only player over 11 minutes for the Jazz that was a plus in +/- on the court.  He single-handedly almost brought the Jazz back against the Mavs on Friday, not playing until the third quarter going 3-3 for 7 Pts 8 Asts in 16 minutes in a crazy comeback charge.  His last four games he has a 21:3 AST:TO ratio.  John Lucas III went from starter to 7 minutes yesterday, and I think Garrett is in line for backup-PG minutes and some time on the court with Trey Burke against small backcourts at times.  Only a guy to keep an eye on in the deepest of leagues, but he looks great when he’s on the court.

Reggie Jackson - 10/3/7/2 last night in a surprise start with Westbrook getting the night off.  Decent line in 26 minutes, but I think it’d shock you that the 7 dimes are a season-high.  Why I don’t think Jackson needs to be owned right now in 10 or 12 teamers.

Steven Adams - Slim’s boyfriend went 3/7/2/1/0 in 27 minutes of run, but coughed up 4 TOs.  Everyone and their mother knows Kendrick Perkins is hot garbage, so I’m with Slim he has upside and worth a stash in deep leagues.  He looked good last Thursday when I last saw him play.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - Shooting worse than me trying to aim at a solo cup instead of a urinal.  It’s a long way down for me, OK!  2-10 yesterday for 5 points, a steal, and a three.  Fin, that’s it.  Now 11 for 45 in his last 4.  At least he’s starting which is good for my REL, but it’s getting brutal and may not last that long.  Wish Thesaurus had come up with some words for yikes… Hey, at least the kid has 3 TOs on the ENTIRE SEASON!  And only one in the past 10 with 2 in his debut.  Pretty crazy, even for a shoot-first guy, to average 0.3 TOs a game in 20+ minutes.

Josh Smith - Returned to the starting line-up for 13/8/3/3/0 and a three.  You’ll take it.  Stop being late for practices!

Rodney Stuckey - Despite the steady decline the past few years, won’t go away with a big 27/4/6/2 yesterday.  I’ve never liked Stuckey, but this 6th man role is doing wonders.  I mean, it’ll give anyone confidence watching KCP try to make a basket!  Still not a full believer, but worth an add for scoring and a handful of dimes in 12 teamers.  But it won’t be me.

Andre Drummond - In the epic battle of Razzball readers vs. JB on Andre the Giant, had a subpar 9/10/0/1/0 shooting 4-6 but 1-4 from the stripe.  Just over 27 minutes, but that is going to become the norm because teams will start Banging the Drummond Slowly!

Joe Johnson - Trying his best to make the Nets salvage this season.  Wasn’t this supposed to be a contending team?!  Yikes… Dammit Thesaruas!  Enough of that…  34/2/4 on a hot 12-18 shooting and ridiculous 8-10 from three point land.  Who is this guy, Arron Afflalo?

Shaun Livingston - A meh-of-a 4/2/7 game, and banged his head hard in the 4th quarter and had to exit.  No word yet if he suffered a concussion or will miss any time.  If he doesn’t miss a start, I still think he’s fringe-ownable in 12-teamers with the assists upside and terribleness of everyone else unable to create on their own.  Deron Williams is still day-to-day, and while they desperately need him, I don’t think anyone wants him to push it.  If both are gone, Tyshawn Taylor might have to start as the Nets PG.  The QB for the Ravens?  No that’s Tyrod Taylor!  I’m so confused… The Nets are dropping like flies!

Mike Dunleavy - Another start, 14/2/3 of decent production for very deep leaguers.  Should get a lot of run the rest of the season.

Marquis Teague - He’s not very good, he shot 0-7 yesterday, but I still gambled on his upside in REL in hopes to completely tank my FG% pairing him with KCP…. Just kidding… Unfortunately my $22 bid could’ve been $4 and won.  Perils of FAAB in such a deep league.  I thought some bidding would be made on a very possible starting role should Kirk Hinrich suffer another injury in what has plagued his career.  Plus I needed PG eligible guys.

Chris Paul - Another dub-dub with dimebags, dishing out 17.  Getting pretty unreal.

Jared Dudley - What the hey?!  21 points yesterday, but only 1 Reb and 1 Ast to go with it.  He shot 8-10 and 4-5 from deep.  He and Kendrick Perkins are the first two picks on my elite hot garbage team.

DeAndre Jordan - Now this was the Dudley.  2/7/2 with one block in 27 minutes.  Did Vinny Del Negro coach this game?!  Sheesh.  The Clips destroyed the Rose-less Bulls and they didn’t need a DJ.  Kinda like getting married to someone who’s family is an A Capella group.

Antawn Jamison - Made his debut in mop up duty.  Any time I hear “mop up” I think of Michael Ironside in Starship Troopers.  I guess that makes Jamison mobile infantry…

Gerald Green - Won’t go away as Eric Bledsoe is killing fantasy owners with a shin bruise.  Green with a 20/8/2/2/0 line shooting 4-9 from deep.  Bledsoe reportedly warmed up, but couldn’t get the shin… warm?  I dunno, I guess it’s a deep bone bruise.  Green I don’t think can sustain value when both Bledsoe and Dragic are out there, but both are proving indurable.  Which isn’t a word.  How about feeble?  Didn’t even need that cursed website to cook up that one!

Victor Oladipo – Another near rainbow line in his third start, going 6/5/5/2/1 in a whopping 40 minutes.  Shot only 3-12 with another 4 TOs (he was leading the NBA in TOs for a bit), but you’re loving the multi-cat.

Glen Davis - Returned over the weekend for a big debut of 7-13 20/5/1/2/0 in 27 minutes on Saturday, then 22 minutes of 6/4/4/2/1 near-rainbow last night.  More on the Magic-mess below:

Tobias Harris - The return is nigh, nay, here!  Just over 16 minutes yesterday going 3-8 for 6/1 and nada.  With Glen Davis returning (Baby back!  …ribs…) the game prior, it’s all the sudden a jumbled mess with Afflalo getting the run at the 3 with VO at the 2.  Andrew Nicholson was a little hot and got a surprise 26 minutes, the most in three weeks.  Then there’s Maurice Harkless starting as of now too, getting a very low 14-minute run yesterday.  It’s a mess.  I like Harris the most, but I don’t think he’s a sure-fire must add.  Sucks for him coming off what he did last year to be slowed by the ankle.

Shawne Williams - He’s been a really under-the-radar producer with a near-rainbow last night of 3/6/2/1/3 hitting a three pointer as his scoring.  Shot only 1-6, but in the deepest of leagues, he can give you some surprise counting stats available everywhere.

Xavier Henry - The return of Wheels!  Welcome back!  21/2 and ummm, two threes!  And ummmm… 3 TOs… Yup that’s it, but he can rack up some points when he’s hot.

Steve Blake - Another dimebag.  I called it for real and a must-own a while ago.  I am a happy Blake owner in a few leagues.  Mugatu voice: “Happy!  Happy! Hahahahaha!”

Jordan Hill - He’s pretty much a dub-dub guy every single night now… Ridley’s Believe it or Not!  10/13 with a block.

Blake Griffin - Had to have his elbow drained after yesterday’s game.  I guess it puts a ton of stress on his elbow to block shots (three against the Bulls yesterday) and that’s why he rarely does it.  I still don’t get why a leaper like him can’t block more!  Doesn’t look like he’ll miss much, if any time.

Spencer Hawes - Missed Saturday’s game with knee soreness.  Lavoy Allen got the start at the 5 against the Pacers and got a near rainbow line of 4/9/2/1/2 with Thaddeus Young out for his third game due to personal matters. Still, most leagues want none of the cleaner-uppers while Hawes and Young are out.

Michael Carter-Williams - The up-and-down season continues!  11-21 29/6/3/7/1 huge line with only 2 TOs.  That’s so up that you don’t mind the valleys.

Tony Wroten - Strained his back.  Probably from carrying MCW around while his foot was hurt.

Six(er) Shooters – Evan Turner went 8-26 and James Anderson 4-18 on Saturday.  KCP and Gordon Hayward would fit right into Philly’s line-up.

Roy Hibbert - Offensive outburst!  No, not like Michael Richards, but a season-high 27 raising his scoring average to 12.2 or about what you’d expect.

Raymond Felton - Can’t get his hip working.  He’s probably not back until next Friday when it’s the battle of the UNC PGs at Denver.  I’m still holding in most leagues, but shallower 10-teamers can definitely move on.

John Wall - Blew it up over the weekend with two 30+ point games on Friday and Saturday.  What kind of moron woulda had Wall as a first-rounder though?! He’s still not shooting ridiculously well but it’s passable, as I told you he has added some 3-point shooting (1.2 a game) and the TOs are bad, but way down per/48 from last year and career averages.  Nice to see something right!

James Harden - Expected to miss tonight’s game.  Maybe he should get some Rogaine on his toes and grow out his toe hair so it’ll be more beard-ly.

Milwaukee Bucks - They’re terrible and Larry Drew said there will be some starting line-up shake-ups.  John Henson might start!  And he called the team selfish while Brandon Knight had 7 Asts in 26 minutes.  Sure he shot 1-8, so it wasn’t exactly like he was only passing, but if his hammy is holding up, I like both of them to get a little run as starters.  Plus Khris Middleton was the only guy who did anything against the Bobcats going 8-13 (2-2 3PTM) 20/4/2/1/0 with no turnovers, so he could be in the mix as well.  Caron Butler was awful going 2-8 after dropping 38 Pts out of nowhere on Friday night.  His AST:TO is atrocious on the year, not boding well for a coach calling out “selfish” play.  Volatile in Brew Crew Nation.

LaMarcus Aldridge - Goromotaro!  Rainbow Line!  He does it all!  Huge 30/21/3/3/3 line in Saturday’s win over the Warriors.  Huge line after a rough 4-20 shooting game on Friday.  I tried buying him in REL when he was put on the block, but it didn’t end up working.  Thanks for checking your trade on Sunday Night after this line instead of hitting accept!

Andre Iguodala - Strained his hammy and out indefinitely.  Another casualty of a weekend of injuries.  Tough news for Iggy owners who were flying high.

Harrison Barnes - Most own in all leagues now.  Got a huge 45 minute run on Saturday for 4-12 13/4/5/1/0 with two threes.  I think he can improve vastly on that and be big while Iggy is out.

Stephen Curry - Returned to action and shared a dimebag!  I guess medicinal marijuana helped him get back from the head injury.

Klay Thompson - 30 points!  2 threes!  1 Reb 1 Ast 1 Stl 4 TOs.  ThrAGNOF!

Corey Brewer - My hero.  It’s going a lot bet than Omri Casspi!  22 points and 5 steals for one of my better calls.

Aaron Brooks - What in the wide world of sports?!  26 points on Saturday?!  This one was baffling.  With Harden out, Brooks got hot coming off the bench for 10-14 shooting and 6-7 3PTM.  Not too much to see here though.

Kelly Olynyk - Set to miss about two weeks with a sprained ankle.  Hey, that’ll happen when you wander the desert!  Jared Sullinger is playing well and should man the 5, but cracks open the door for former waiver-wire favey Vitor Faverani, who got just over 14 minutes for 11/5 with a block and a three.  It’s a small crack though.  A fissure.

Matthew Dellavedova - An out of nowhere 14 points on 6-8 shooting on Saturday, for 14/2/2/4/0 and a three.  Poor man’s Corey Brewer?  I actually kinda think so, Mike Brown likes him and hates what he’s seeing from his other 2s.

Jarrett Jack - Strained his neck in the blowout, helping Della V get the minutes.  We still don’t know the severity, so it could be minor and just him crying.  “Wahhhhhhhhh, I’m Jarrett Jack!”

 

Next Games: I’ve got three tonight with BOS @ CHA, DEN @ DAL, and NYK @ POR.  Nothing really stands out in any of these, except hoping to see the Blazers go 11 in a row.  Hope you crushed in week 4 and good luck in week 5!

    Congrats on the Tar Heels. I’m a proud member of the University of Vermont Class of ’06, so the end of that game against Duke was…..yeah. Many, many obscenities were yelled.

    Should I trade Kanter and Pierce for Butler and McRoberts?

    • JB Gilpin

      @Larry: Jimmy B or Caron B? Kinda depends on league size and I’d want to wait and see what Kanter’s injury status would be before selling that low.

  3. jakob says:

    Yes!
    I’ve won which was my last year’s finals matchup 4 – 3 – 1.
    Besides some unlucky decisions (Crawford sitting on the bench, going 10/12 in a really close FG% category.) He was unstoppable in REB and BLK and in STL pretty much, too, though I was leading STL most days of the week, but at the end his guys went off. Last night, I’m only leading PTS with 2 darned points. He plays 5 guys, I play only three, being Vasquez, Dunleavy and Marvin Williams. And FG was close as well! But his Favors, Drummond and Big Baby didnt shot too well and Vasquez finally got a 20 PTS game, leaving us with a tie – 542 PTS for both sides, giving me the overall victory! Oh yeahr baby. I like my team, especially Rubio on it! Every night he plays, I get up next day (living in Germany, I’d have to stay up till late night to watch NBA) and I’m always kinda excited about his stats, because you never know what you will get. He isnt a confident shooter, so I guess his FG is fo real, but I’m able to cover it (Tony Parker for the win!) pretty well. I love the Spanish kid.

    Anyway, the worst team in my league got KD (his whole draft was autopick =/) and I made a 5-for-1 offer, giving up Vasquez, Jordan Crawford, Koufos, Pek and Henderson for his Durant. I mean, we are a deep league and I would definitely need some time to get such depth again, while his team.. well, he got KD and DIRK. His PGs are Mo Williams, Wolters and Burke. Along with Foye and JR and an injured Brook and an Asik who isnt playing at all. I mean, this guy needs quantity AND quality. Realistic (and reasonable for me?) trade? I could see it being accepted but vetoed overall in my league.. well, lets see and hope!

    Best luck for you guys this week

    • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
      (link)

      @jakob: Sorry, but that’s an absolutely offensive offer for Durant. Can’t believe you actually sent that.

      • jakob says:
        (link)

        @JoeMorgan’sMustache:
        As I mentioned in other comments here on razzball, Im really bad at elaborating trades. So bad.. that I cant even tell what you mean. Did i proposed too much for Durant? Or is it way too less? I mean.. this guy has the worst team in the league and our FA is thin, his team got autodrafted and offers no depth. He basically gets upgrades on every position besides SF, but he got JR, Gay and Josh there. Well.. as I said, Im really bad proposing fair trades, but I found this one actually a good one.

        • JoeMorgan'sMustache says:
          (link)

          @jakob: Not enough. It’s just a bunch of average players, at best, for arguably the best fantasy player in the game.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @jakob: Nice win! I love when the biggest counting stat (Pts) is a tie. Always interesting. Yeah I agree with @JoeMorgan’sMustache: , it’s too low for KD. Those kind of depth trades are usually only made with keepers involved. Even in the deepest of leagues, none of the 5 offered are really anything more special than the best waiver wire adds throughout the season. But hey, I don’t think it’s “offensive” though, I love throwing out offers to see what happens. Although if he’s last and autopicked/you don’t know him, and there’s no money on the line, he’s probably not looking at his time

  4. Morning JB and crew! With Rose out for the year and Tyson Chandler on the waver wire, should I pick him up and stash him or just wait for a better option to come available? Sanders is still out there on wavers as well.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @WNWDOTCOM: Yikes, yup Rose is fin… Kinda what I guessed. I think I’d stash if you have no other options, but I’d use that spot for someone playing, not in love with either of those Cs as stashes.

  5. DexterHol says:
    (link)

    One question JB. Who to start in my weekly league: Norris Cole or Trey Burke?
    Norris Cole has 4 games this week and Trey Burke has 3. Will Burke see more minutes this week or should I wait and start him next week?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @DexterHol: Close, but I think I’d still start Burke

  6. Baren says:
    (link)

    Would you trade Westbrook to get Harden?
    My other PG’s are Curry, Rubio, and Lilliard.

    • Zar says:
      (link)

      @Baren: Westbrook for harden straight up? Even before westbrook had to get reinjured, Harden was 3 and Westbrook was 7, sounds pretty good, unless Harden has a serious injury. >>

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Baren: With those great PGs, I definitely take Harden. Not too worried about the foot yet

      @BCPro: Nah, I wouldn’t for either

  9. mike says:
    (link)

    Hey JB, I have a back end rotation question in a 10 teamer.. Would you get rid of either Gerald Henderson, Patrick Beverley, Jimmy Butler or Tobias Harris for Harrison Barnes? I think even Steve Blake’s available..
    Thanks man!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @mike: Jimmy Butler I would. I think he’ll be out a while. Mannn, I think you need Blake too. I might lose Harris for Blake too. I know tough to drop Harris

        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:
        Hmm really eh? The whole time I was kind of leaning towards Henderson.. he hasn’t done much even without Jefferson taking a bunch of shots..

    Hey JB,
    I’m in a daily H2H 10 team league, at this point, what should Rose owners do? Drop him or sit on him until there is a timetable of his return?

    Hi JP, I have a top heavy team, which I normally do prefer as I like trying to find value on the wire. But my roster is definitely lacking depth, so I’m considering trading KD for a couple of really good players (i had him all last season so it might be fun to change things up anyway… high class problem…).

    Would you do that, or just ride this 3-headed beast and hope some of the others pull their socks up and contribute more ROS?

    Big 3: CP3, Spicy Curry, Durantula
    Rest: Nene, Hawes, Leonard, Hill, T Jones, Oladipo, Butler, W Chandler, Tobias, PBEV!

    Cheers dude.

    • Prodders says:
      (link)

      @Prodders: If I did, it would prob be for George plus a strong PF, something like that.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Prodders: It’s worth exploring offers, but I like the team you have right now. Own em with it!

  12. Don Majkowski says:

    My team (14 team H2H) 10 Cat, Double Doubles is a category

    PG Westbrook
    SG Kev Martin
    SF Marion
    PF Love
    C Unibrow
    G Calderon
    F Favors
    G/F Stephenson/Brewer
    Util Bosh

    Bench – James Anderson, Reggie Jackson, Ben Mclemore

    Just traded Boozer for Keving Martin, and another offer is on the table…it doesnt really fit for my team, but getting the best player, so its hard not to do…

    I get – ZRandolph(again, double doubles are the10th cat), Caron Butler

    I give – Calderon & Stephenson

    I feel like I will need to move one of my bigs(Love, Unibrow, Bosh, Randlph or Favors) again after this deal, but think I can flip whoever I deal for more value than Stephenson & Calderon…maybe? What are your thoughts????

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Don Majkowski: Yeah I think I do it, Calderon is fading fast. I like Stephenson a lot, but yeah Zbo for the dub dubs especially with no Gasol fighting for boards, should be a monster. I do it!

  13. TR says:
    (link)

    Would you drop Mayo for any of these people:

    Jamaal Crawford, Jose Calderon, JR Smith, Steve Blake, Greivis Vasquez, Danny Green

    Conventional wisdom says no, but it’s only an 8-teamer so there’s a plethora of solid free agents. Its a h2h points league so categories don’t matter much to me

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @TR: Gotcha, I mean all these guys are in the same range, in tomorrow’s update I’m going to say sell Mayo everywhere you can. I think I’d take… Blake maybe of those. Not much separates any of em, like Blakes 3s and dimes.

    10 man H2H Most Cat — PTS, DD, TO, BLK, STL, AST, REB, 3PM, FT%, FG%

    I have Tobias Harris still sitting on my IR and I would love some help in figuring out who to drop so I can put him in. It was going to either be Stuckey or Plumlee, but then I looked at some stats and realized that Eric Gordon has similar if not a little worse stats than Stuckey does and Stuckey has been and should continue to come off of the bench. I am also not sure if I can afford to let go of a big man now that MGasol is down…

    My team:
    PG: Rubio, Conley, Tony Parker, Steve Blake
    SG: Kev Martin, Eric Gordon, DeMar, Stuckey
    SF: Klay, Parsons
    PF and/or C: Terrence Jones, Miles Plumlee, DeAndre, Jordan Hill

    advice? It is either me losing a scorer/steals in Gordon who will be snatched up very quickly or losing Plumlee and hoping my other PF/C get blocks and rebounds. My FG% has also been garbage this season and neither Gordon nor Plumlee are helping.

    thanks!

      @kisses: I think Plumlee is your drop, I think you’ll miss the blocks the most, but he’s fading everywhere else pretty bad

    Really nervous on the news that just came out on Beal. Should I sell him ASAP before the word gets out about his injury, or is it nothing to worry about?

      @Jake Van Zuiden: Yeah I am nervous as well. I would sell as low as maybe 85% of value, but wouldn’t go so low without a firm prognosis.

    12 Team H2H
    5th place

    I am stashing my fantastic first round pick of Gasol on the bench and have Butler and Bledsoe (not worried) injured

    I can’t go with 2-3 injured players and stream.

    2 q’s

    1) would you release Gasol (I have Kofus)

    2) would you from Butler for Ariza?

    It’s frustrating dealing with these injuries this early in the season.

    My team:
    PG – Wall/Bledsoe/Conely/IT2
    SG – DeRozan/Butler
    SF/PF – Deng/Terrance Jones
    PF/C – Nowitzki/Pekoivic/Nene/Koufas/Gasol

    Would you try a 2 for 1 such as me trading Conely for a Monroe/Hawes type deal (just an example of tier player combo)?

      @Matthew: 1) I would really, really try not to. I think he can get back. 2) Yes. i think Butler is droppable. Yeah I like looking for a 2-1 move with all your hurt guys. That trade example is pretty good, but I will say Conley has a tad of upside sans Gasol. Shot awful yesterday, but at least got a double double
