Jonas Valanciunas has a fractured metacarpal on the ring finger of his right hand, which means he can’t be married, I think. It will also keep him out for a few weeks and gives you a reason to drop him in all but deep leagues and keeper formats. This opportunity will allow Amir Johnson and Ed Davis to shine on, those crazy diamonds. Johnson and Davis were probably already owned in most formats, and now they will be even more owned. Take that, add button! Here are some other injuries for you to ponder:
Raymond Felton – Another broken hand and broken heart: Felton has a fractured pinkie and will also miss 4-6 weeks. I guess you could say Ray *pinkie to mouth* never Felton so bad. Jason Kidd and J.R. Smith already see a ton of minutes, so probably Pablo Prigioni will benefit the most.
Wesley Matthews – On Wednesday, he was diagnosed with a left hip flexor strain. It appears to be mild, but he will be out indefinitely. Victor Claver has been starting, but Will Barton may benefit from extra time. I’m not sure how much I would invest in either.
Tyreke Evans – His knee looks okay, but the team will likely sit him until next week.
Byron Mullens – The team is being gentle with the ankle sprain, meaning he will be out for a week or two. Hakim Warrick is a decent short term add while Mullens is sullen. Actually, I don’t know if Byron is sad, but he’s certainly sidelined.
