Jason Richardson stepped out of his Delorean in a Phoenix uniform and dropped 24 points on 9-for-14 shooting (six threes). Dude hasn’t cleared 20 points since January 15 and hasn’t scored 24 since December 15. S’what happens when you go from being a team’s no.1 offensive option to another team’s no.4 offensive option. Actually, I’m not sure where he ranks on Orlando. They’ve got Howard and six no.4 scorers.
Ryan Anderson – As soon as I called Anderson dead and gone from fantasy value he dropped 16/5, with four threes and 15/5, with three threes. Thank Christ I don’t write a fantasy basketball advice blog.
Mike Bibby – 3/3/1 in 19 minutes. Although if you listened to Reggie last night 2011 Miami Bibby = 2004 Detroit Rasheed. Yay! The Heat are saved now!
Chauncey Billups – Billups is burning one of his floating vacation days tonight, which means all cars go for Toney Douglas. Don’t debate, just do it. Things don’t work out optimally for Douglas when he involves himself in debates.
Stephen Jackson – Likely to play tonight despite that nagging hamstring. As I can’t name anyone else playing for the Bobcats this season, might as well make sure he’s plugged into your roster. Where’s Melvin Ely these days? Is he on the Bobcats? D.J. White?
Brendan Haywood – Starting for the next two games in place of Tyson Chandler. Mingle in a quick little trip to Bed, Bath & Beyond and it should be a nice little weekend for Breywood.
Corey Brewer – Signed with Dallas, which is great because I was just thinking that the Mavs could use another two-guard.
Josh Smith – I’ll start with the good news first: his MRI came back clean, which means he isn’t likely to miss much time. Now the bad news: He’s not playing tonight and might miss a game after that. So there. I like to leave you drained of all joy.
Glen Davis – Speaking of tests coming back clean … Big Baby doesn’t have herpes! Also, his MRI showed that he’ll only miss 3-5 days. Wait. Since when do MRIs test for herpes? Creepy. Prop bet! Who returns first, Smoove or Davis? I’ve got Davis.
Baron Davis – Sticking with the Davis-with-humorous-nicknames-theme (suck it, Ricky), Boom-Dizzle will likely to debut off the bench tonight. If ever there was an example of someone you might want to start eventually, but not immediately after returning from injury … this be it. Don’t make me tell you twice, now.
Ty Lawson – The first two games went to Felton, the last two went to Tyny. If you must own one, own Lawson, but note that the two guards played a handful of minutes together last night.
