Well, yet another example of why a starting nod doesn’t equate to production, even for seemingly good players…

The Bulls got embarrassed last night in LA, with Nikola Mirotic getting the start at SF.  It was disastrous before, and twas disastrous again!  Only got 12 minutes and did nothing other than get a steal and a turnover, and it looks like old Tibs wasn’t too happy.  The ghost of Carlos Boozer shoved Mirotic around on a layup and he just isn’t a good defender – why we saw another healthy dose of Tony Snell.  Even in a 2OT game, Tibs didn’t let Mirotic off the bench!  Went small instead with Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks picking up more PT late and in the OTs.  And ultimate insult to injury – the Bulls still lost.  But it was really Derrick Rose‘s fault as he continues to lay brickhouses on top of batches and batches of turnovers.  He’s like a Martha Stewart version of The Big Bad Wolf!  And the Bulls should’ve pulled this one out since the Lakers continually refuse to play their best player…  Tarik Black!  Outrageous!  Egregious!  Opprobrious!  (thank you Thesaurus)  Black is an MVP waiting to happen…  Here’s what else went down last night in fantasy basketball action:

Louis Amundson – Wooo, the other Sweet Lou delivering on my stream call!  17/3/1/0/1, keeps his streak of at least a block every game on the Poppycockers alive, and hit 8-10 FG.  Only 1-3 FT, but hey, for a guy 0% owned to be a good stream, he can be Sweet Lou 2!  New nickname!

Langston Galloway Ugh, The Harlem Renaissance looking more like The Harlem I-Got-The-Trotters last night…  4/2/2/0/0 on 2-10 shooting with no treys.  He’s an undrafted D-League rook, so you’d imagine some ups and downs, but good to see he didn’t press it – no TO in 35 minutes.  Jose Calderon is still worse…

Cleanthony Early – A Mr. Clean sighting!  2/4/0/1/2 in 18 minutes.  Meh, I get liking him in dynasty and I do think he gets a run of minutes at some point, but who knows when…

Rodney Stuckey – Yup, told ya it’s time to get lucky with Stuckey!  22/4/5/1/0 on 8-13 FG (1-2 3PTM 5-5 FT).  Stuckey making Galloway feel yucky!  Rod-Stuck is very low end, but I still think is worth holding onto in 12ers if you lucked out on this little streak while streaming.

George Hill I didn’t see any of this game (“JB didn’t watch the Pacers blow out the Poppycokers?!”  For shame!”), but Hill reportedly looked slow and played his 12 minutes in junk time.  Hmmmm.  Weird because he had been playing well too.  I don’t know if this ever blossoms into that 30 minutes per game this year…

Ian Mahinmi Does his Mahinmi things!  8/10/0/1/1 in 24 minutes, with that awful 0-5 FT.  The 3 TO are an eyesore too, 1.0 TO a game in 19 minutes is too much for a big, but for deepers?  Mahin-Me!

Zach Randolph T-Dog hitting the glass!  15/17/2/1/0 in a very Z-Bo game.  In NBA terms, sure looks like Z-Bo is still > Manimal.

Nick Calathes and his twin Beno Udrih – Another split of minutes with Mike Conley ending up sitting out, and Calathes (11/1/5/1/0) and Udrih (11/2/3/0/0) are carbon copies of each other.  Conley was a game-time call, so he should be back soon and you can disregard these Twins like that old Arnold movie…  Just kidding, that movie was aight.

Jeff Green So, so terrible.  13/2/0/0/0 with a couple of treys.  So many goose eggs that he might end up working for Willy Wonka.

Jusuf Nurkic The Nugs were all sorts of awful last night in a tough matchup against the Grizz, so not overreacting to Jamba Jus’s 0/6/1/1/0 line with 3 TO.

Arron Afflalo – Denver was blown out the minute Memphis arrived in Colorado, so no one got any minutes.  7/1/1/0/0, but a big grain of salt.

JaVale McGee Even McGee got minutes!  15 of em!  2/5/1/0/1, and that’s sorta the high end…

Tobias Harris Hurt his knee last night, and the timing couldn’t have been worse.  A lot of news is floating around that Jacque Vaughn is about out of Orlando, which would almost assuredly get Tobias back into the starting line-up if he’s healthy.  Plus it would probably help…

Kyle O’Quinn …the big KOQ get more load in the rotation!  Got some junk time last night for 7/9/2/1/1 with a trey in 27 minutes, and an expanded role would certainly make him relevant again.

Victor Oladipo What I warned about when saying to sell that VO!  Sure the 21 points are nice, but no treys (0-4), shot only 6-17, and a fairly empty 21/5/1/1/0 line.  After that ridiculous steals binge he’s back to 1.4 SPG the last 10 games with a 34:24 AST:TO ratio in that span.  3.4 dimes a game ain’t gonna cut it, and only 3 treys the past 5.  Even if the points are there, it ain’t enough!  I’ve been in the South too long dropping all these ain’ts…  Maybe a new coach will help, but I’m feeling much better with my sell-high no-RainbOladipo rants these days after he had a hot stretch during them.

Brandon Knight He could have my children.  16/5/9/4/1 with a couple of treys, 5 TO is still too many, but he’s been a huge call for me in back-to-back years.  How high will I have to rank him next year to be stay well above the consensus?!  First rounder!

Jerryd Bayless It seems like a distant memory just how cold he was last year for the Grizz (shot 37.7%).  Another big game from my fellow JB going 19/2/1/3/0 with a couple of treys and 5-5 FT.  Didn’t get the assists last night, and he’s tough to rely on for consistency, but worth a look in maybe even 14ers.

Khris Middleton The Duchess on a tear!  Worth a look in all leagues at this point!  17/2/1/2/0 with 3 treys and looks entrenched in that starting 2 role.

Wayne Ellington Well that turned around!  Was at something like 13/4/2 late in the 4th, but the 2OT got him up to 46 minutes and a 23/5/3/1/0 line.  Shot well at 9-19, but only 1-6 from deep.  I think the extended run neither proves or disproves he should be a hold.

Jordan Clarkson Whoa, rainbow alert!  18/4/4/2/2 on 6-15 FG (1-1 3PTM 5-5 FT).  Really, really impressive.  A little bit of the same caveat as Ellington with the 43 double-OT aided minutes, but he’s certainly in the 12er discussion.  Still behind, ya know, the D.J. Augustin and Jarrett Jacks of the world, but not too far from that mix.

Jordan Hill – Putting the purp & gold on his back!  Although missed a game-winner.  Fail!  Kidding of course, as his 26/12/3/1/2 and strong play late helped get a rare Lakers W.  I still don’t see the FG% coming back up, 11-22 last night and taking more jumpers, but a nice bounce back to stay must-own worthy in most leagues.

Jimmy Butler Look at all dem FT buckets!  16-18 from the stripe in a 35/4/7/3/0 line.  REALLY good night for the JBs out there!  Stats wise that is… Because afterwards he said he hurt his knee during the game…  Hold your breath everyone!

Pau Gasol Ends up losing on his old stomping ground after learning he’s an All-Star Game starter.  Womp womp.  “I think I’m getting dizzy.”  20/10/6/0/4, and as we’ve mentioned a few times on the Pod this week, been a revelation.

Joakim Noah Tripdub flirt!  9/17/9/0/1 with no TO, and the Joakim Loah-ers (another Pod reference!) are basking in the gold!  What a sick dime on this one.  “Leeloo Dallas, Multi-Pass!”

 

Streamers/Cheap Daily League Picks:

Zach LaVine (5% owned) – I’m going back-to-back LaVine games!  Mo Williams is meeting up with the team today in Philly, but is no lock to play after a personal issue and a sore hip.  Sure Lorenzo Brown might pop up for a few minutes too, but this should be a fun streetball game and LaVine should rack em up.

Alan Anderson (2% owned) – AA going against his former Raps!  Looking like a big minute SG starter, Mr. Anderson went 15/2/6 with 2 treys in 36 minutes the last time out and should be relied on for some O to try and keep up with Toront-O.

 

I hope everyone is killin’ it in their matchups so far this week, and have a great weekend Razzball Nation!  See ya on Monday!

    Hey JB, first time posting!

    Looking for some opinions and insight, i was really beginning to feel comfortable about my team…then Jrue went down!!! how should I proceed?

    12 league non keeper , 13 player (No IR) ,
    H2H 9 cat Pts, FT%, FG%, FTM, 3pm, Reb, ast, Stls, BLKs

    Punting Ft%, and 3pm

    Lawson, MCW, DJ Augustin, Smart, Holiday,
    KJ McDaniels, Greek freak
    Lebron, Thad young,
    Monroe, Noel Nerlens , Josh Smith,
    Drummond,

    Currently 7th, top 6 make the playoffs..only half a game behind. With no IR, do I have the luxury of holding holiday? I could really use a bit of everything at this point but there isn’t that kind of player sitting on the WW.
    Should I just offer him for Dhoward and hedge againt losing holiday for the season? Or is no owner dumb enough to consider that?

    Thanks in advance for any insight

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Sadmamba: Yo dude, thanks for stopping by! Sure you could offer that for Howard, offers can’t hurt! Jrue is def risky, so hard to drop him though… With Terrance Jones back, I would lose Smith and try to stream that spot at the end of weeks. Seems like you could be semi-competitive in 3s! I think you could stream some long balls

  2. Dale says:
    (link)

    Im in a yahoo 9 cat league. I traded Pau gasol, brandon knight and Gorgiu Dieng for Lebron. Was this a dumb move if so whats a viable trade offer for Lebron. Heres my reasoning for this trade

    Gasol: injury concerns, bulls team is in trouble
    Dieng: Pekovic, Martin and Rubio Return
    Knight: returning back to earth after blistering first 2 months

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Dale: Well I still love Knight, looked better last night, but yeah consolidating that into an elite guy would be awesome if he takes it. Eliminates a lot of risk

  3. Rob says:

    Curious..is Batum an avoid at all costs or buy low. I am considering offering Bogut as my team is loaded for blocks (Ibaka, Whiteside, Duncan, Brook Lopez) and the other guy needs him.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Rob: Leaning towards buy low, but it’d have to be REALLY low. Sure Bogut for him would be a huge win for you!

        @Bye Felicia:
        tnx!!! definitely an upgrade over lee. and the freethrows is underated with sweetlou. takes more than 4 a game with those percentage. the fact that i have drumm and blake with me thinking punting ft this season, my fg is worse!!!

    Hey JB really look forward to your columns. I recently asked u about Guards on my waiver wire but now I’m considering dropping Jrue instead of Ellington to pick up Chalmers on waivers. If I miss out on Mario would u grab Clarkson and drop Jrue or Ellington? Thanks JB!

    • Bye Felicia says:

      @Tony C: You gotta hold Jru

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Tony C: Thanks so much man! If you’re fighting for a playoff spot, I’m good with that. Rio should be solid with no Wade. Hmmm, Clarkson vs. giving up Jrue. so tough man. If you really need the production i would do it, but a #1 or #2 seed I’d wait for Jrue

  6. Shaft says:
    (link)

    one of the guys in my league is on the outside of the playoffs looking in but only a handful of cats out of the last playoff spot. he’s getting rocked with injuries:

    G: Conley (inj), Kemba (inj), Klay Thompson, George Hill (always inj), P-Bev, Gerald Green
    F: Deng (inj), tobias harris (inj), paul pierce, mirotic
    C: Marc Gasol

    i think now is the time to strike and try and bring back Conley or Klay. What do you think of these offers:

    1) my jack, tyson chandler, favors for Klay
    2) my jack, favors and covington for klay
    3) my jack and chandler for conley
    4) my jack and favors for conley

    any of those you wouldn’t do? Here is my team:

    G: Lillard, Knight, Holiday, Rubio, Jack
    F: Durant, Draymond Green, Covington, Favors
    C: Boogie, Tyson Chandler, Whiteside

    Only concern of mine is we’ve already traded twice:
    1. My kemba + deng for rubio (and then i grabbed Draymond off the wire FTW)
    2. My Conley, Gasol and Sullinger for Lillard, Favors and Chandler

    thanks, as always JB!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:

      @Shaft: 1. Ehhh, seems like a lot of big man depth to give up. 2. Ehhh, love Covington, closer tho. 3. Love it. 4. Probably would do it, 3 is my fav. So 2 I’m iffy on, 1 I don’t know if I’d do. Hope that helps man!

    Woah did I inspire that multi-pass ref?! 😉

      @bye Felicia @jb Gilpin: thanks y’all! But even with Vaughn most likely being fired soon? The new coach may reinsert Tobias into the lineup

    uuckghrrgggg – sound that literally came out of my mouth when I saw that Nurkik went 0 for 7 with zero blocks.

    i really dont want Oladipo on my team anymore. Nobody in my 8 cat roto league wants to trade for him and it’s a shallow 10 team league with good players on the wire, am I crazy for considering dropping him

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @dom: I’d drop Nurk before I dropped Olidipo

      • dom says:

    Who do you guys like between Galloway, Clarkson, Ellington for ROS upside?

    • Bye Felicia says:
      (link)

      @jcg: Ellington, Clarkson my reasoning is the lakers are going to be developing these young guys. Hopefully 🙂

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @jcg: I’m going Galloway, Clarkson, ellington. I think Ellington might end up being the most reliable, but for upside I like that order.

      • jcg says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin:

        I’d like to have all three but I don’t have that many droppable guys. Scooped up Galloway a few days ago and now my roster looks like this. More intrigued by Clarkson, I think he has really good upside and I’m not sure Ellington can keep ballin..

        Lillard
        Conley
        MCW
        Monta
        Galloway

        Covington
        Tobias
        Giannis
        R Anderson

        Gobert

  12. Ryan says:
    (link)

    Finally managed to swing the long awaited Love for Ibaka trade. It’s a 14 team keeper league (But we get so many keepers its practically a dynasty) and the Ibaka owner knew he had leverage because of this playoff schedule. He’s rejected all of my offers up until he suddenly told me that he’d do it if I traded either Nurk or Whiteside in addition to K-Love. I gave up Nurk.

    How’d I do? I’m worried I might have dropped the ball on this one, but thought that Whiteside had more to offer this year due to his better consistency and playoff schedule. Plus that Ibaka+Whiteside combo is gunna keep blocks locked down. It still really sucks that I gave up Nurk in this format and I’m wondering if it was worth it.

    I’d also be kicking myself real hard if Love decides that Cleveland sucks and that he should go to another team and be a top 10 player again!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Ryan: Hah kinda doubt Love moves on unless there’s some behind the scenes player drama. Both he and Ibaka are so young… I think since it helps ya more this year I def like it!

    What’s up, JB? Love the podcasts to help me get through the traffic on the way home!

    I am thinking to drop PBev (no much steals lately and sub-0.4 FG%) and Len/Nurkic/Rolo to get up two of these guys: Galloway, Clarkson, ellington, Tobias. What ya think? Very good in assist, steals and 3s and punting rebounds and TO (obviously!)

    10-team, H-to-H, #1 now.

    PG: Curry, Lawson, Teague, PBev
    SG: Danny Green

    Hi JB! I am in a 9teams 9cats roto league. Seating comfortably in 1st place by a wide margin of 9pts from the 2nd place. My question is my worst player in my line up is george hill right now (injury prone and he’s my 7pg/sg in my lineup of 15players). Would it be wise if I drop him for a hot FA like m. Barnes/w. Ellington or scoop up nurkic in hopes that he will break out in the future. I don’t have a back-up big man in case one of my pf/c gets injured. If I plan on trading him, who is the best value pf/c for him? Already asked this to Peter’s article. I just want to know your opinion also.

    A. Smart for Beverley (both have same stats in tonights game with Smart having higher upside?)
    B. Horford / Brook Lopez for Marc Gasol / Terrence Jones
    C. Horford / Hayward / Brook Lopez for Pau Gasol / Ibaka / Danny Green

        @Larry: Yeah def holding Rondo as bad as he’s been. Gortat might be droppable. Whiteside looking dominant on the glass helps that case. Yeah gimme… I think Galoway for him

    Hey JB,

    I have Brandon Knight as PG, and I don’t like having 2 players from the same team, but given how well Bayless has played lately, do you recommend dropping any of these guys to acquire Bayless or Watson?
    I have MO Will, Brandon Bass, and Ginobili.
    I need to boost 3pm and dimes, while not suffering other cats too much.

      @abulldogs: Sure Bass for Bayless I would do if you don’t have a big big man need

    JB, I’m not feelig good about Colly, seems like the kings arent motivated anymore. I’m not sure if this is a good move but I really would’t mind trading him for:

    A) Colly = Conley(i know he’s injured, this is a buy low right?
    B) Colly+hibbert = Griffin(or Bosh)

    Tell me what u think! Thanks brotha

    • Dante Green says:
      (link)

      @Dante Green: or this one: colly+mcw+hibbert = bknight+conley+dray?

      Hibbert coming off with 3 nice games! Mcw has been beastin it since wroten went down, shots finally falling but damn those TOS are intolerable! I’m gonna offer dirk for bosh straight up, both are not doing so well but I’d rather have Miami’s nice playoff sched and avoid dirk’s sitting out games in the future

      • JB Gilpin

        JB Gilpin says:
        (link)

        @Dante Green: Yeah I’m not jolly for Colly either. Def getting COnley if I can. Sure, yup doing the other too if he takes it. Third one – hell yes too. And yeah I would want Bosh too. Wins for you across the board!

        • Dante Green says:
          (link)

          @JB Gilpin: the guy offered me earlier his rondo+vuz for my mcw+whiteside and I rejected it. I guess MCW’s tripdub is enticing for him so I’m gonna use mcw as a bait coz I’d happily get rid of Hibbert(better have Dray than him). But there’s no fcking way I’m giving up Hassanity for any player from the Magic! LOL. Thanks JB!!

    Hey JB,

    14 Team H2H (10 CAT w/OREB)

    Rubio, Beverly
    Oladipo, Hill
    Draymond, Parsons, Carroll
    Millsap, Faried, Sully
    AD, Markieff, Rolo

    Got offered Deandre + PatPat (who I can potentially drop for Olynyk) for my Draymond + Rolo.

    Is it worth losing two great playoff schedules?

    Thanks!

        @J: Nahhhhh I like Drayray too much there, I think Faried will build some consistency so I don’t kno if you need DeAndre’s boards

    J Smith or Motie for the short term?

    ding came off the bench and only played 19 mins. I play in a weekly league… Should I play him?

    • JB Gilpin

      @hanns: Good question, with 4 games this week I think I would

  28. abulldogs says:
    (link)

    KCP and Patrick Patterson just got dropped in my league. There are CJ Watson and Bayless as well.

    What do you think about dropping Brandon Bass for any of the three? I don’t need too many boards and blocks. BUT I need to boost my % and dimes. Bass’s percentage is good, but absolutely no help in dimes.

    KCP had a good game today. def didn’t see that coming.

    Any feedback appreciated.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @abulldogs: Yeah KCP looked awesome! Don’t know how dependable it will be though, and I don’t think he’ll help %s and dimes. I like Patterson a lot more typically, but Bayless hits your needs so well. Might go there

    Josh smith worth an add with the Howard news? My pcts and TO Are my strong cats but I am considering adding him or rondo…want to drop redick or Jrue. 12 team 9 cat thanks!

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @B-rad: Ugh the Rondo news is no bueno. Friggin Richard Jefferson! Depends on how you’re looking this week if H2H, I would probably go Rondo for Redick though, over Smoove

  30. Blue says:

    DHoward dropped to waivers. 14-team 9cat H2H league. Is he worth stashing even if I’m not punting FT%? He would fit my needs in FG, REB & BLK but would surely kill my FT & TO.

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @Blue: Eesh, what is your standing? If #1 or #2 I could see the stash, but if you’re fighting for the playoffs I wouldn’t

      • Blue says:
        (link)

        @JB Gilpin: I’m at #2. Rondo was just dropped as well. Howard or Rondo to stash?

        • JB Gilpin

          JB Gilpin says:
          (link)

          @Blue: Howard sure fits your needs better but I gotta take Rondo

    @JB Gilpin: Yea, mobile phone, deleted cookies numerous times, still does it. It only does it on this site. Even when I’m not using Chrome, still even with my default browser. You guys might be infected with Adware? IDK…maybe it’s on my end? I’m not that tech savvy.

    • Ryan says:

      I’ve been thinking the same. Every now and then when visiting the site, it tries to redirect me to another site that tells me to download a fake version of adobe flash. Its not rly a problem for me because I have good antivirus protection and an app on firefox called NoScript that prevents redirects like that, but I’ve been wondering if anyone else had issues with it.

    • A Hill O' Beans says:

      @Bye Felicia: I get the redirect to the Google Play store sometimes when I’m using my Nexus. I’ve gotten it on occasion for quite a while now, think i mentioned it to JB before. Only time I get it is on this site too, and yeah, Chrome or Firefox.

    i’m in a weekly league. trevor ariza for 3 games or lou williams for 4?

    • JB Gilpin

      JB Gilpin says:
      (link)

      @hanns: Whewwwww great one. I know it’s a little bit of a cop out, but I would look at your oppo and see how they look for steals. If they have a lot of gaurds in their lineup right now and steals looks close, Ariza, if not Lou

      • Ryan says:
        (link)

        I think I’d go with Lou no matter what considering how hot he has been lately. The only real advantage of Ariza is the fact that he gets about 2 spg. Lou on the other hand, averages 1.3 spg; meaning that he will likely get 4, probably 5 steals over the course of 4 games. (as opposed to Ariza’s 6) Unless that extra steal or two matters, I’d go Lou.
