Who says NBA is an indoor sport?!  Roll out the tarp!

During a rainy night in Brooklyn, all the sudden the ballboys were throwing towels on this spot on the court as somewhere in the rafters was a pretty steady leak.  I looked away from the game for a minute then looked back, and I thought at first they were cleaning up a massive bleeding injury!  At least that wasn’t the case… Ended up being about half an hour rain delay, complete with maintenance rolling out a trash can to collect the water.  It’s like Kap said when we were chattin’ last night – just like his high school gym!  The Nets arena leaking with the tears of Nets fans…

While Brooklynites had to watch a short-handed Heat team beat them at home, there’s at least some fantasy goodness to be had from some flashy younguns.  Professor Plumlee!  Young professors I bet would make a killing with college chicks… Anyway, Mason Plumlee for 21/9/1/1/1 last night, shooting 8-12 FG and leading the Nets in scoring.  Sure the Heat front line is a bunch of dudes you’ve never heard of and an over-the-chicken coup Birdman, but good to see him hitting on his potential as the starter, finally.  There’s still some blemishes – 4 TO and a surprisingly good-for-Plumlee but bad-for-real-life 5-8 FT (stop it with the hyphen phrases!), but if you can handle the FT drain or already have a FT-punting (dammit!) team, he’s a perfect fit.  I think he’s as close to a must-own in all leagues while Brook Lopez is out, but many teams don’t have a streamer spot and/or can’t handle the bad FT%.  Brolo is getting reevaluated Saturday, meaning he’s out at least three more.  So while the Nets are leaking talent, don’t let Plumlee leak through your waiver wire.  Here’s how the rest of the NBA big news shook out:

Jabari Parker Ugh.  Probably would’ve been the lead, but I wanted something more fun and upbeat…  Might have been the tears of Bucks fans that leaked into Brooklyn’s roof.  Torn ACL and out for the year, kinda what I suspected.  And will probably miss a little time next year before getting eased in.  Really hurts his dynasty/keeper stock as well.  Awful.

Sergey Karasev – Maybe he got twisted up too much after slipping on that wet spot!  I picked him up in REL since he’s starting, and I was actually really impressed with his game until a sore left side made him exit in the 3rd.  11/3/3/0/1 hitting a trey and a couple really skillful, contested layups.  Pro-rate his night to finish out with the starters, and could’ve been a 15/5/4 kinda game.  If this isn’t a long-term injury, and I can’t imagine it is, he’s worth an add in 16ers.  Worth noting that even when Karasev went out, Bojan Bogdanovic barely played and did very little in 16 total minutes.  This is Karasev’s job when he’s healthy.

Deron Williams – Wow, kinda took me by surprise he has dimebags in 4 of 5.  15/11 last night, and if you’re worried about his health and/or the Nets blowing it completely up (which they seem intent on doing), might be a solid sell-high window.  I’d look at teams desperately needing dimes and see if there’s something to get there.

Mario Chalmers – Played well even with Dwyane Wade on the court!  Shocking!  10/7/5/4/0, only taking 3 shots (2-3 FG & 6-6 FT).  4 steals in back-to-back games, but other than that has been Willow walking across the street.  Aka – a little pedestrian.

Chris Andersen – Feeling good after yesterday’s open!  No Heat fill-in PF or C do anything, except Birdman for 9 Reb and 2 Blk.  It’s only deep league usable, or a pure-boards/blocks stream, but he should deliver!

Shabazz Muhammad Woooo, feeling even better!  21/4/0/3/0 after I picked him as a streamer yesterday and said he’d have a 20/5-type game.  Guess the Shabazz stat line is all me!  He had 8 steals on the season through 23 games so that’s obviously a fluke, but the scoring certainly isn’t!  If you need some points, Shabazz is your man.

Mo Williams – He’s old.  Had a bad back.  So by the power of deduction I figured he wouldn’t do much.  6/1/2 hitting a trey in 14 minutes, as Zach LaVine played 34 for 8/3/8 and 4 TO.  I see no reason to not keep LaVine running the big minutes in an all-out developmental year, but Flip might want a veteran PG out there as Mo gets eased in.  Who knows…

Gorgui Dieng Choo Choo!  I hope you stayed on the Gorgui Dieng train!  12/12/1/0/3 with no TO.  That dry spell of blocks was indeed fluky, as he’s 2+ the past three.

Thaddeus Young Thad the Impaler!  Usually Thad the Imploder this year though…  29/4/2/2/0.  First time over 20 Pts in ten games and only the second time since the opener.  About all you can be happy with is he’s kept up the nice steals, but the expanded three-point game we saw last year is gone and his FT% has been awful.  I still think he’s one of the league’s most-likely trade candidates, and wherever he goes it’s just gonna be worse.  I’m running with scissors on this one – cut and run!

Anthony Davis So I noticed that over the weekend there was a spike in AD owners with Brow trade questions while he was out with the chest injury.  Hopefully you’re feeling better now!  31/9/1/1/3 hitting 12-15 FG and 7-7 FT.  Why anyone else on the Pelicans even touches the ball is a mystery to me…

Ryan Anderson Mister Anderson!  My name is Neo!  28/5/3/2/0 with no TO hitting 6 treys.  He’s been huge the past three, and I know in some shallowers he was dropped.  “That was you in my computer… How did you do that?!”

Enes Kanter Still a horrific defender, but 29/7/1/2/3 on 12-22 shooting.  Tough to bash on that!  He’s only topped 20 points in three games this year, and it’s been in 2 of the last 3 games.  Coincides with Derrick Favors‘ missed time!  Nice little sell-high window.

Rudy Gobert Might be his last start, as Favors participated in shootaround and was questionable before being ruled out.  Rudy was just fine as a fill-in for 6/9/2/0/3 with no TO shooting 3-6 FG.  L’Voyage may be at an end.

Trey Burke He’s a Mr. Jekyll and Carlos Hyde within each game too!  Scored 14 through the first 8 or 9 minutes of the first quarter, yet ended with 16 on the night.  Fail!  1 Ast to 5 TO.  Epic fail!  It’s so incomprehensible these runs of elite then horrifc AST:TO ratios this year!  9:14 the past four games now…  Remember when I was pumped for this guy out of the draft last year?!  Yikes.

Amar’e Stoudemire – Have you seen this commercial yet?!?!  Friggin’ awesome, loved it.  STAT for 10/5/2/0/2 against a tough matchup in Tyson Chandler returning to MSG.  Still, a pretty decent enough showing, and he’s been one of the biggest surprises this year to me.

Jose Calderon Told you guys!  I saw 3 games worth and I was done-zo.  3/4/2/0/0 in 32 absolutely worthless minutes.  It’s tough against that juggernaut D of Jameer Nelson!  Hah!  Bleck.

Tim Hardaway Jr. – Should’ve been a nice ThrAGNOF play!  But 0-8 from deep.  Breaking my heart, Timmay!  Some will fall at some point, and the PT is there with J.R. Smith ailing and Iman Shumpert with one arm a stump-ert.

Chandler Parson – Whew!  Able to get back out there returning from his back issue, and what a perfect game to get eased back in blowing out the hapless Knicks.  Looked good too for 13/3/6/1/1 and no TO.  Left no crummies!

#OccupyDraymondGreen – ESPN doesn’t understand basketball.  First there was this which I mentioned on the Pod yesterday, then last night during the Warriors game they put up Draymond’s FG and points.  The announcer (some schlub, I dunno who) towards the end of the game was like “Green with 2 points and 0-4 from deep.”  Ummmm, what?!  Dude goes 4/10/6/1/5 and you’re slamming his game?!  Don’t you have some sort of Kobe he-said, he-said to report about?

Marreese Speights – Someone showed up!  18/8/0/02 on 7-14 FG in 26 great minutes in the GS loss at Memphis.  Streak broken!  Andrew Bogut had to get his knee drained (don’t worry, drained of icing!) over the weekend and David Lee just can’t figure out how to not be hamstrung, so this Speights run could continue for a good bit longer.  Apparently Bogut has things called “Chondromalacia” and “bone edema”, but other than me copying and pasting those terms from Rotoworld, I dunno what that means.  But sounds fancy and scary, kinda like expensive caviar.  I’ve only had it on sushi, do I need to seek some good Russian shizz out?

Shaun Livingston Been pretty usable the past 5 games, and I streamed him a couple ago and using him for one more tomorrow night on a light slate.  Then GS is off until next Monday.  It’s low-upside, but 12/3/3/0/1 yesterday and if you need low-end across the board production, look no further.  Especially if you need to plan ahead a waiver move with Daily-Tomorrow settings like RCL.

Beno Udrih – A huge part of that Grizzlies 20-0 run in the second quarter last night.  Plus I love the PA that goes Uuuuuuuuudrih!  6/1/8/1/0 with no TO.  It’s only for the deep leaguers, but his AST:TO has been un-Trey Burke-ish.

Russell Westbrook This just in!  Looked really effing good.  32/6/7/4/0 with only 1 TO.  Line of the night!

Kevin Durant Shocker!  Looks good too.  OKC has now won 7 straight and 9 of 10.  Always good to have two MVP-caliber guys!  And played 35 minutes as the minutes restriction seems indeed lifted.

Serge Ibaka Back to old Ibaka!  What you drafted for!  9/6/2/0/7, waved a Diekembe “no-no-no!” in there, and even chipped in a trey even though he was only 3-10 FG.

Reggie Jackson Well that 30ish minute role as the 6th man isn’t coming together…  Only 20 last night for 8/2/3/1/0 and under 22 minutes with terrible numbers the past 3…  Definitely worrisome, but I’d try to hold in almost all leagues.  The minutes should go back up a bit and there’s just too much upside should RW get hurt again (knock on wood, and knock the wood very lightly with that hand!).

Darren Collison Pretty low 6/5/3/2/1 line, but had to come out early with two fouls in a tough matchup.  Might’ve messed with his flow.  When a good player has back-to-back bad games, that’s when it’s time to pounce with the buy lows!

Tacko Fall I love this guy!  Mentioned him about a month ago and hope he makes it to the NBA.

 

Streamers/Cheap DraftKings Picks:

Khris Middleton (11% owned) – The Duchess!  Off that emotional high of hitting the game-winner Monday night, plus the emotional low of losing Jabari for the year – this could swing either way.  But the minutes should be there, as we’re still waiting on Ersan Ilyasova to get back.  Should be pretty fast pace of play at Portland and K-Middleton could play blowout minutes with the second unit as well.

Jusuf Nurkic (1% owned) – The Au Jus!  Don’t worry Slim, Nurkic is still your stomping ground, but I could easily see Timofey Mozgov get into some foul trouble yet again against Dwight Howard (5 PF in 14 minutes last Saturday), and we get a bigger dose of the Au Jus than we’ve seen yet.  I already grabbed him in one league for Jabari.  As Slim mentioned on the Pod, Nurkic’s per-36 numbers are pretty boring…  15.7/14.5/2.1/1.5/3.0.  I could do that in per-36s!  Well, best I might be able to do is play 30 seconds one game, hit one 3 and grab one board.  216.0/72.0/0/0/0 per-36… I could live with that!  Retired!

 

I hope everyone had a great Tuesday, and enjoy the big slate tonight!  Thanks for stopping by!

    JB….what’s up?

    10 tm h2h keeper,and my best players are Curry,Cousins,Parsons,Rubio,Noah and Wiggins.

    I was just offered Melo/Danny Green for Wiggins/Rubio.

    I need the scoring,but I really need AST too,so….

    loved your guys’ podcast per usual, ridiculous ESPN comparing stats of different sports!

    who has more value for at least the medium term (1 week + ish) James Johnson or Jusuf Nurkic? just read Faried is back does that change anything

    I’m looking for blocks and steals with low TO to have any chance this week but i’m more concerned with value picks.

    waiver pick ups is max 3 and i haven’t used one yet, first time in weeks it feels like; mostly because humphries and corey joseph are hanging onto some resemblance of value, and Kaman has some value now with Rolo down. James Johnson just hasn’t been as good as I’d hoped (was looking for 1+ stl and 1+block with demar out) my other end of the bench guy is MKG, does he have a sliver of chance of value moving forward?

    other free agents available are Heat forwards with McBob out, any of those better than the above?

    thanks in advance, people!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @KD Owner: I really want to say Nurkic but I can’t yet. He could get in foul trouble before he gets a single stat. I don’t think Faried, Hickson, or Arthur plays into Nurkic at all. I think he’s a direct backup to Mozgov with the 2 of them getting all 48 center minutes. I think James Johnson is a bit more reliable. I think MKG has the best shot at the most minutes among those options. As for the Heat bigs, nah, I’d rather those other 3.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @KD Owner: Yeah I’m with Slim, comparing those 3 it’s JJ, MKG, Nurkic for this week, but MKG I still think can be valuable this year. Shaking off the rust.

      Thanks for listening man! Yeah that graphic was just preposterous, I’m all for comparing stats, but that made no sense haha

    • KD Owner says:
      (link)

      @KD Owner: yeah, ridiculous. ok ok cool thanks guys. how about out of these guys, if you could, please rate for medium and long term value:

      CJ Watson, Ed Davis, Tyler Zeller, Tim Hardaway Jr, John Henson.

      henson is interesting with parker out, do you think he will get legit minutes or even start?

      appreciate it!

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @KD Owner: Well with Henson, I don’t trust anything yet at all. Those guys are mad tough since all bring different things, Zeller is probably the guy to own in a vacuum, even if it’s low upside. I’d take whomever helps your needs more. Any time!

    Meeks is on the wire, should i pick him ip if he plays well tomorrow? Planning on replacing courtney lee though

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: They are just about the same player… I think Meeks probably has a bit more upside so I can get on board with that move.

        @Slim: thanks slim appreciate it

    Justin Hamilton was getting owned by Plumlee who btw looked like the best player on the court most of the night. Something definitely looked wrong with Hamilton though, he wasn’t moving the same as he had been the past couple of games. But he did have a stupid 2nd foul that cost him a bunch of minutes. Birdman looked solid but I have a feeling there’s going to be plenty of DNPs due to his back. Still though he should be owned in the REL while “healthy”…ish. Cory Jefferson gets 10 minutes. Oh well, I assume there will be minutes available again sometime down the road.

    I haven’t seen too much of Taco Fall but he looks like the least athletic big man I have ever seen. I am definitely not buying him as an NBA prospect.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: Wade looked good too! Haha. I know, Fall just seems like a really nice kid. Just optimistic he can make it. Surprised Birdman is available in REL, almost picked him up before, but I don’t need blocks. I’d imagine you’d get him if you could

  5. Frank White says:
    (link)

    Hey JB… Someone offered me Lawson, Taj Gibson n Redick for Ibaka, Alec Burks n Dragic in my 9 Cat. I don’t like Redick but I feel Taj is doing as good if not better then Ibaka and Lawson makes up for it being a lot better then Dragic. With my big guys being Ibaka, Monroe, Millsap, Favors, Stoudemire n Dieng I hardly ever get double digit boards. Do you think it’s worth it or should I try to change Redick with Alphabet or Wiggins?? I’ve been trying to deal Dragic n Ibaka too and I better do Dragic probly before his numbers go back down with IT3 back. Idk.. Thanks!!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: It isn’t a terrible offer but I agree Reddick throws it off. If you could swap in Antetok then I would pull the trigger. With Jabari done for the year we might be seeing a ton of Antetok and he’s been really turning it on lately. Taj is solid and with everyone back eventually he should still be OK. Just not what he’s been recently.

      I think JB might say this isn’t enough for Ibaka and with Reddick it definitely isn’t but with Giannis… I kinda like it.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Frank White: Slim knows me so so well… Yeah I don’t think it’s enough at all. Still think eeven with Giannis it’s giving up IBaka too low

    Hey JB/Slim,

    14 Team H2H (11 CAT w/ FTM and FGM)
    punting blks and rebs usually

    Lillard, Lawson, Lou Will
    Knight, Burks, Stuckey
    Hayward, JButler, CLee
    Deng, Carroll
    Al Jeff, Markieff

    Whats your opinion on JR Smith ROS? Any chance he finishes strong like last year?
    He got dropped and I’m thinking about losing Stuckey for him.

    I’m thinking Hill’s return saps Stuckeys value a bit much for my liking. Would suck to lose those sweet FTM though.

    Thanks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:

      @J: I’m sticking with Stuckey. (Pun?) JR has been terrible and admits to being lost in the triangle. I like what Stuckey is doing. I’d hold him until Hill is back and we see what happens.

    acquired melo in a trade but looking to trade him asap for jrue. the owner doesn’t want to do straight up and is insisting on the following. any of these worth it? dont like him as a player and i worry about his nagging injuries:

    1. melo+wall for lowry+jrue
    2. melo+kemba for tobias+jrue
    3. melo+batum for tobias+jrue

    if i shop melo, should i settle for the likes of korver, wes matthews, beal – or aim much higher?

    thanks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: Aim higher. Straight up for Jrue is reasonable. I’m saying No on #1. And the problem with 2 and 3 is the magic playoff schedule. I think you can find better for Melo elsewhere. Too much name value and he’s playing.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: Agree, Melo should command more than those guys you list at the end, I think more than Jrue too. Sounds like Jrue owner is asking for way too much. I would target come other PG. ANy time!

  8. hamtime says:

    with favors on the horizon, is it time to drop gobert for the nurk?

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: I wish! But I don’t think so. He isn’t ready for enough minutes to really make him useful. He’s just way too raw for big minutes or any kind of consistency. Maybe eventually this year but I don’t think now is the time. I’m waiting for a game where he gets more minutes than Mozgov. Then I will pounce.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hamtime: Hmmm, I wouldn’t quite yet until we see Favors finally play, but it’s close to me!

  9. Joe says:
    (link)

    Melo/Tyreke/Taj for Bosh/Batum/Pierce?

    Melo/Taj for Ibaka/Monroe?

    Melo for Blake?

    I don’t think anyone would be a keeper except maybe Monroe depending on where he lands next season. Open to suggestions on how to tweak offers on my side.

    10-team, 3-keepers h2h league. Number next to player indicates round drafted; keeper price is one-round-higher than drafted per year.

    Melo (1), Durant (2), Conley (3), M.Gasol (4), Matthews (5), Holiday (6), Noel (7), Tyreke (7), MCW (8), IT2 (9), Gibson (w)

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Joe: Way too many question marks with #1. I wouldn’t be buying Bosh at all till he’s back on the court. #2 is interesting but I wish there was someone better than Monroe. I like the idea though. I would do #3 for your team. Boards look a bit shy to me and hopefully Durant can make up for the FT%.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Joe: #3 is my fav too. I’m still a big Ibaka guy and I don’t think you need points at all, and you get some back with monroe so I like #2 as well. Don’t like #1 with Bosh ailing and Batum so bad

    Oladipo good play against Boston tonight? I hate to sit Wes Matthews because I’m afraid I’ll miss out on 5+ 3’s but Wes has been looking pretty 1 dimensional lately. Matthews, Oladipo, or Brandon Knight? Thanks

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @dom: Oladipo should be solid. Should out steal those other 2 easily. Wesley is pretty much only for not blowing up your TOs which Oladipo and Knight could very well do.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Slim: @dom: Yeah if you need low TO and treys, definitely going Matthews but I like Oladipo the best overall

  11. Know One says:

    Hey JB/Slim! Who do you guys think will have the better overall value? Plumlee, Ilyasova or Gobert?

    Thanks!

    • Slim

      Slim says:
      (link)

      @Know One: I assume Mason since Miles is done as a starter. Probably Ilyasova when he’s back but don’t know when that’ll be. Till then Plumlee, until BrokePez returns, then it’s a toss up with Plumlee and Gobert.

    • JB Gilpin

    am I too high on McDaniels or should I accept this trade? keep in mind, this is a h2h keeper league with 20 owners. we can keep our full rosters now, season-to-season.

    trade: KJ McDaniels + KCP for Isaiah Thomas + Middleton
    yes? no?

    pg: Lillard, Collison, D. Harris
    sg: Harden, KCP, McDaniels
    sf: Deng, Barnes, Brewer

  14. Slim

    Slim says:
    (link)

    Definitely not Lowry and Lawson. I could make an argument for Oladipo, especially with playoff schedules, but I like Oladipo a bit more. Collison vs Rose. Hmm…. Collison should win FG%, assists, steals. Rose should win points and 3s and still carries plenty of injury risk. Even in Collisons slump I’ll still take him over Rose.

          @miles proudfoot: Yeah I think so, I’m holding onto him in a 12er for now, his injury is basically runners knee, he’s better than guys on the wire for me

    Would you drop Nerlens for Mozgov or Kelly O in a 10 team H2H non-keeper?

    • pound sand says:

      @pound sand: or Kaman??

        @pound sand: Nah, I know he’s been extraordinarily up and down, but I’d stick with Nerlens

    JB and Slim,

    I hope the season is treating your squads well so far. My roto team (standard scoring, no TOs) is off to a roaring start, but I lost Jabari last night and now find myself with an open spot on my bench. I do not need the spot to go to someone that needs to contribute right away.

    Pek, Kev Martin, and Rubio are all available. All of them have their benefits to my squad, but the timetable for Martin seems the most sketchy. Any thoughts on adding one of them?

      @OldMilwaukeePounders: Hey man! Yeah it’s been pretty solid, I think both our worst team is our co-managed Freidns and Family league where we keep getting early-week weekly league injuries. Def get Rubio! Esp in non-TO, should be owned for sure, might only be 3 more weeks.

    Hey guys, I’ve got George hill, Terrence jones, favors, Dwight Howard and bogut on my team. I held it together for weeks but am now down to 6th in a h2h 12 team yahoo league 11 cat with oreb and pf added. Should I move on from anyone or wait it out tell they recover? The game deficit has become overwhelming each week

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Justin: I’m fine moving on from Tjones while you’re banged up. Hill sounds pretty close and you’ve held this long, so you might as well hang on. Luckily Favors is about back and Dwight is good

    I need some life in my squad. I own Cousins, Demar, and TJones. Is a Tjones drop for Scola absurd? This sucks! Everyone is gone from my wire. 12team H2H….HELP!!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Dommattingly: Hah, def not absrud to get some production. Scola is only a short term streamer while playing well, btu yeah I’d take some production from Tjones’ spot

    What’s up guys!
    Rest of season, who would you rather have Giannis or Thad?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Connor: Wowwwwww. Great question. Ya know, gimme Giannis with Parker hurt and I think Thad gets dealt to an even worse situation for his fantasy value

    12 team 9 Cat. Would you rather roster Jordan Hill or Ilyasova?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jcg: Still HIll. I know he’s been bad lately and Ersan is looking at a possible starting role, but I think hill can pick it back up

  24. Osnam says:

    B. Wright or Len? Thanks!

    Hi: received a trade offer Ryan Anderson and Covington for my Gordon Hayward and Khris Middleton. Threes are my achilles heel in this roto league.

      @Rob: Slim would probably vastly disagree, but it fits your needs perfectly – I do it

      @Johnny: he through Green in there too and said two of the three but Im reluctant to move Green because he does so much

      • Johnny says:
        (link)

        @Johnny: Also would you trade PBev or T. Parker for Collison?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Johnny: Starting at the bottom, yup def moving either of those PG for Colly. Probably rather Parker due to DNPs. Green + IT2 for Klay? I’d have to think hard on it… Seems like a high-volume 3PTM guy would help.

  28. ABulldogs says:

    CJ Watson vs Livingston for PG?

    Right now and after Hill gets back. Lots of if’s, but would your preference change then?

    Thanks

    • ABulldogs says:

      @ABulldogs:

      What about Udrih? compared to these two?

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @ABulldogs: Yeah it would, Watson for now, Livingston ROS. Udrih behind both for now, maybe ahead of Watson when hill has been fully back in

    Just curious..in a 12 team h2h league I have been holding David Lee but am beginning to have doubts on this in favor of streaming the hot hand du jour. Is he still a hold?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Rob: Yeahhhh I think so, sadly. Might as well wait at this point

    Is bogut a stash? Could use the blocks but so we know if he is for awhile?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @miles proudfoot: Yup, I think so don’t think it’s too too long

    quick one– after another strong Olynyk outing tonight you still like STAT over him? Or swap them? I already own Sully, is it a bad idea to hold both? Thanks man

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Shaft: I don’t think owning the two is bad, but it’s still STAT for me. He’s just been too consistently good
