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.

    I am in a 14 team h2h keeper league. We keep 5. I was offered d will and David west for hickson and lillard. Getting d will is huge but I’m apprehensive of making this trade. What do I do?

      @Ryan: Is there a penalty for keepers? Like, does Durant cost more than Lillard?

      @ChrisV: @Ryan: personally, i would want lillard in a keeper league. they are putting up similar stats already, and lillard is younger, a better shooter, and seems like a better person (not that that matters in fantasy, but who wants a drama queen on their team?). I think dwill’s days of being a top 10 type player are long gone, so with all things being relatively equal, i’d always keep the younger player. Keeping harden, durant, lillard, faried, and lowry gives you 5 great young keepers.

        @ETMcgee: I think Cousins’ personality problems shows how that can eff up talent and potential, so there is value to being a “better person”

    My team has 4 injured players. John Wall, Matthews, Evans and Lowry. It’s an 8 team h2h league so there’s a lot of good players on the wire. Would you drop any of those 4 for Kawhi Leonard? Thanks!

      @Jeff:

      Hey Jeff. The potential of all four of those players when they’re back is too good to drop for kawhi and give to someone else. But if you’re near the bottom of your league and need to make ground, I would have to go with Tyreke (as a Tyreke fan it pains me to say)

      @Jeff: I would not drop Lowry or Wall. Evans should be back next week, and Matthews…we’ll see. You may be able to trade anyone of those players for reduced value that is still better than Leonard.

    Would you hold onto Kawhi Leonard over Larry Sanders/Byron Mullens/Derrick Favors/Kevin Martin?

    • ChrisV

      ChrisV says:

      @Arc Angel: I’d hold Kawhi but it depends what your needs are. Martin offers some advantages with FG% and threes, for example.

    7 team league – time to drop Parsons? Vasquez, Calderon, Eric Gordon, Tyreke Evans available

    • BringDaRuckus says:

      @nightpandas: I would pickup Gordon and pray to god that he stays healthy. I’m sure you can get Parsons back in that shallow of a league.

        @BringDaRuckus: yeah, Gordon is set to play this weekend. 7 team league is almost ridiculous unless you have deep benches.
