Whoa, it’s already December!  We bring in the final month of 2016 with a look at the big headlines across the NBA including Mike Conley getting hurt, go through some waiver wire PG options to fill in the void, and go over the other key injury updates from the past few days.  We then conclude the week with a look at tonight’s games and our 30-point challenge picks, a reminder to hop in the Razzball Fantasy Movie League (join through this link, password “rball”) as the Winter Season begins this weekend, and finally a look at what we’re watching these days.

      Kemba/Gobert

        @your mom: @Shahed: I’m gonna go the other way, I think the Whiteside>Gobert gap is wider than Kemba>Jrue, but it is reallly close

    Such a shame that these pods come out after the latest round of games.. Woulda been nice to see what y’all thought of Harrison and them Griz. I’ll tell you what: I’m holding JaMychal for as long as he’s hovering at the 30min per mark. That dude’s engine is stupi! Crashes the boards, tries to block and steal everything . Hits FTs. Love him in reality and as long as they’re all injured, love him in fantasy too. Those O brds are going down well in my 14 cat L.

    Lin has probably been and will be the worst roto-own this entire season. “Evaluated in two weeks” has somehow turned into “still out after a month with no timetable and no actual update on his injury. Oh, and he went through a hard 40min workout the week before”. About as confusing as the Taiwanese language.

    I’m THIS close to dropping Lin, which I know would come back to bite me in the ass. Parsons, D’Angelo and Okafor (Brown saying that he wants to play he and Embiid together in the next one)available on the wire. I picked up Evans yesterday following the broadcasters stating that they heard that he’ll be returning on Fri (so strange that none of the Rotoworld crew picked this up – guess they don’t actually watch the games?). Gentry said the other day that they’ll have a good idea on his return on Wednesday, which I belive is TODAY in the US. Here’s hoping there’s an update. If not, he’s an obvious drop candidate. But yes, y’all are high on Parsons but when the hell is he actually coming back? And you saw how ridiculously limited his mins were when he returned.. D’Angelo should be evaluated early next week..

    I think Lopez and Giannis are gonna have nice nights, but I gotta keep riding that Kembaaaa-well against that tough Deron D. Lets do dis!

      @Lasandro: Hah yeah, lots to react to last night, just it is what it is with our scheds. Hopefully as the site keeps growing this can be our main gig! One can dream…

      Totally good rolling with green while hot! Harrison looked great too, made him the lead in the daily notes.

      I’d rather be stashing D’Angelo > Lin. Interesting you brought that news to us, but yeah I haven’t seen anything either from RW. I doubt they can have full coverage of every live game… Prob like 2-3 guys doing the notes every night. Parsons is tough to stash in a shallow league, I do see more upside tho with no Conley!

      Hah cool, yeah watch Kemba do it this time, now that i went somewhere else!

    So i snagged DJA per your advice but was wondering if i should drop him for jamychal or 2pat. Seems more mid term-ish.

    Current team:

    G-Lowry,Dragic,PBev,LouWill
    F-Giannis,Hayward,Gay,Harkless,Kaminsky
    C-Gobert,MylesTurner,Ibaka
    IL-Tyreke,GaryHarris

    Deciding my last roster spot between Jamychal, Patterson or Augustin (Elfrid with ankle inj)

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tyler: Very meh on Pit Pat. Yeah Augustin is only a hotter pickup for me right now with Elfrid out. You have good dimes and decent steals, yeah I think green fits ya better, I would get JMike

  4. Pbomb says:

    Eventhough kemba failed me twice..I’m gonna go with him for the 30-point challenge.

    • JB Gilpin

      @Pbomb: Third times a charm!

    I want to go back to the well, but give me BroLo for 30! Josh Richardson still a hold? Miami just can’t have a healthy wing

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Connor: Good call! 12er I think I might still ride him out in one RCL, but if in a tight matchup, I would stream him out

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @Connor: I came real close to dropping JRich in an RCL, but he got INJ and Reggie is really close so I’m hoping to just swap em out.

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:

        @Connor: @Slim: Got INJ before PG 🙂

    Giannis for the 30 pt challenge!

    • JB Gilpin

      @FHRITP: Nice, he is mad hot!

  7. The Gintern says:

    Haha JB you definitely jinxed it not going back to Kemba… I’m gonna try again with LBJ tonight, that’s gonna be a great game with both teams salty coming off tough Tuesday losses.

    Was offered Myles and the 7 foot Enes for my Millsap – I’m taking that, right? You guys good with a Tony Parker drop? Andrew Harrison, JaMychal, Joe Johnson and JRich are the other options. The Grizz are just so depleted, JJ will get a boost with no Hood, and I’m still waiting for that JRich breakout once he’s healthy

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @The Gintern: Hah yeah I ruined it! Ohhhh good point. It’s still weird that LeBron is an option, i kinda keep forgetting.

      Nahhhhh, I would keep Millsap I think, unless dire blocks need. Millsap just does soooo much, and Kanter is barely ownable. Yeah TP can go. Would get Harrison if PG need, J-Mike for big need.

      • The Gintern says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: Right?? So weird.

        Aight, any target recommendations for Millsap then? I’m nervous all the little sore thises and thats every now and then are gonna turn into a few missed weeks at some point, and I’ve been disappointed with the dip in FG% and Dwight sucked up all his blocks…

        Oops, sorry if I wasn’t clear – I own all those guys (just grabbed Harrison on weekly waivers this morning), was just trying to figure out who to drop if I did the deal!

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @The Gintern: If you could get a better throw in than Enes, I wouldn’t mind getting Myles plus something, but I think Millsap will bounce back.

          Ohhhhhhh my bad, yeah Parker would be your drop if you can get a little better sweetener from that owner

    Gonna go with Slim. Giannis is freakin hot and against the Mess.

    • JB Gilpin

      @giantsFTW: Yup he/you def have a better shot than my lunatic pick, I dunno what I was thinkin haha

  9. Niko-Cola Kevin says:

    Kemba for 30!

      @Niko-Cola Kevin: Back to the well, I was close to doing it!

    hey I’m tied for the lead in the commenter section too! Gonna catch up to you two tonight…I was tempted to go with Giannis again against the Brooklyn Nyets (shout outs to prokhorov), but I just feel like Klay might be the one to go off in that Houston/Golden State matchup tonight. I’ll take him for 30!

    Waiver wire question: in a 12 man 9 cat, are any of the following worth picking up/stashing? Parsons, Marv Williams, Josh Richardson. I have a punt FT, maybe punt points lineup right now…

    Guards: Curry, Dragic, Rubio, Pbev, Korver
    Forwards: Wes Matthews, Thaddeus, Warren, Winslow
    Centers: DJordan, Drumm, Nurk, Capela

    Pbev or Korver seem like the drop candidates right now, but they fit my team well. Would you drop either/both for any of the three on the wire?

    Thanks guys!

    • jdubs says:

      @jdubs: oh–pitpat is also out there. I know how much you love that guy haha. good replacement for the Nurkles?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @jdubs: Oh crap my bad! Yeah I’ll have it all fixed and updated after tonight wraps up.

        I thought about Klay – def wanted SOMEONE in that game!

        PitPat does help 3s which looks like a semi-need. Def gotta get Parsons for a FT punt IMO, and your bigs are good, I would get him for Nurk. Then might lose Winslow, since you have too many hurt guys? And stream PitPat with that spot if you need 3s? Something like that

  11. Dusty says:

    Sean Kilpatrick for 30 again if he’s allowed to keep chucking like Tuesday. Might as well swing for the fence.
