So this isn’t a basketball intro, but it was probably the biggest news of the night!  In a game where the Thunder were playing the terrible Mavs squad, Kanter managed to work himself up enough to punch the bench chair… Unfortunately, he’s now out for 6 weeks.  Kanter had been putting up 4th round value recently, so this is a big blow to fantasy owners and the Thunder.

Anywayssssss – Here’s what happened last night!

Mavericks at Thunder (8:00 pm EST on TNT) – Final Score: 98 – 109 Thunder Win

  • Harrison Barnes – 31/2/2/1/0 – An empty line with only 2 threes.  I really am not a fan… He’s a good scorer though.
  • Justin Anderson – A solid 17/5/1/0/0 – Isn’t it sad that these are the best two lines from the Mavs side??
  • Russell Westbrook – 45/8/3/2/0 – He had his shot going tonight, and just didn’t dish it much.  He even shot 4-8 from deep!  Don’t count on that repeating soon…
  • Enes Kanter – Fractured his forearm from punching a chair… This doesn’t need a punchline…

Pacers at Timberwolves (8:00 pm EST) – Final Score: 109 – 103 Pacers Win

  • Paul George – Had a very Paul Georgian game against the Wolves.  32/4/5/1/0 with 3 treys.  The scoring is nice, but the peripherals are just ok.  It is what it is!
  • Jeff Teague – 20/8/13/1/1 – I would be raving about this line, but the 6 TOs are a bit tough to swallow…
  • Thaddeus Young – 9/5/1/3/0 The steals are nice, but man he’s tough to own.  It’s just a permanent roller-coaster with Thad.
  • Zach Lavine – Unfortunately, he’s not in the dunk contest this year… He did show up tonight though with a solid 23 point line with a steal and a block thrown in.  The 5 assists were also nice coming from the shooting guard.
  • Karl-Anthony Towns – KAT is a basketball god.  It’s that simple.  33/10/4/2/0 and this was a somewhat tame line.  Oh yeah, he also drilled 4-6 from downtown.  Come on man!
  • Ricky Rubio – A low key great line tonight.  4/2/12/4/0 The 4 steals and 12 assists are fantasy gold!  Gold I say!

Suns at Nuggets (9:00 pm EST) – Final Score: 120 – 127 Nuggets Win

  • Devin Booker – Did his usual scoring with some assists, and a lot of turnovers.  24/0/6/1/0 with 5 TOs.  He makes the blurbs a lot, just so I can say how much I dislike these lines.
  • T.J. Warren – 21/8/0/0/1 – I really dislike these Suns lines….
  • Brandon Knight – Had a good day off the bench with 17 points, but he only got 11 shots.  I don’t see how he’s rosterable in standard leagues at this point.
  • Nikola Jokic – Paced the Nugs with 29/14/8/1/2.  Sooooooo he’s pretty good… Plus, he shot 12-21 from the field.  That’s tough to beat.
  • Gary Harris – Put up a dud with 8/1/1/1/2.  At least it was a multi-cat dud with 2 triples though.  Once he rounds into form, he will be a fantasy monster.

Lakers at Jazz (10:30 pm EST on TNT) – Halftime Score: 41 – 44 Jazz Lead

Nothing really stood out in this game at halftime, outside of the fact that it’s pretty low scoring.  I would’ve assumed a little more fireworks, given the Lakers’ bad defense, but that doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

    Worth holding onto Kanter? 10 -team league no IR spot.

      @Tom: Without an IR spot, I don’t see how you can… Drop him!

    Is it safe to drop Trevor Booker in a 14-team H2H, ridiculous 11-Cats (including DD’s and Team Wins)… for the likes of ….. Caris Levert?.. clearly they both stink up the team wins category.. but other than that, Booker gave me great value early on, especially in DD’s and steals… but now not so much,,

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @NYFantaC: I would do that – it’s not like Booker has any upside.

    Was able to snag Zubac back this morning.. Woooo! (after dropping him for CP3 the other night , then watching him put up 2 dub-dubs)

    Dropped Levert for him tho (who I’m pretty high on)

    But I like the way my team is shaping up.

    12 team – 15 man rosters deep – H2H – 13 Cats

    Wall, IT2, G. Hill, Seth, CP3
    Lebron, G. Harris, Ersan, Bogdanovic,
    D. Howard, T. Chandler, Turner, Mason Plumlee, Monroe, Zubac.

    Are you Ok with what I did dropping Levert ? Next up would of been Harris or Bogdanovic..

    Thanks mannnnnn.

      @BILL BLAST: Yeah, I’m good with that! Levert has some upside, but I don’t see him being consistent this season.

    That’s gold, Jerry! Gold!

      @Pong: Thanks! They should call it Roundtine!

    12 tm h2h
    would you give bledsoe & millsap (and cp3 thrown in)
    for wall & hayward?

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @a bag of sand: I wouldn’t do that unless you need assists and are good in big man stats.

  6. Don Majikowski says:

    WHo would you prefer to roster Zubac or David Lee?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Don Majikowski: Lee is safer, but Zubac has the blocks upside. Personally, I’d go Lee, but it really depends on the risk you want to take.

    In a I 12 team h2h 9 cat daily league 3 bench no IL 4 add drops a week. We don’t use TO we use FG % or ft% instead. Anyways would you add zubac and drop either David Lee or willy Hernan gomez or Robin lopez or hold? I’m in 9th place 1 game behind the last playoff spot I need stats now I can’t stash n wait otherwise I’d pickup cp3… ugh… I streamed willy Hernan the other night btw. Thx for the help as always

    • Adam

      Adam says:

      @whatcha think?: I’d drop Robin Lopez if you aren’t in the playoffs.. You need as many wildcards as possible to make up the gap.

  8. Gregarious says:
    (link)

    Whiteside and Sweet Lou for Jokic…which side you like?

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Gregarious: I’m taking the Jokic side by a touch

  9. Pavel says:

    Dynasty league
    I get: Hayward
    I give: Otto Porter

    for sure right?

    • eoijon says:

      @Pavel:

      no question. the allstar easy.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @Pavel: That’s close – If you’re contending this/next year, then Hayward, but for a rebuild I’m going Porter.

  10. eoijon says:
    (link)

    My Dieng and Gallinari for Derozan and Lin?

    I would probably end up dropping lin so it’s really Dieng and Gallo for Derozan.

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @eoijon: Yeah, Derozan side – If there are some decent replacement options for Lin on the Wire.

      @Sud: Definitely!

  12. KAT says:

    Seems time to drop brogdon,playing time and production is trending down

    • Adam

      Adam says:
      (link)

      @KAT: Probably, unless Delly goes down. The upside is tantalizing though.

    That is all.

      @Tyler: Do you need a big? I’d think you’d have boards and blocks covered with those centers.

      • Tyler says:
        (link)

        @Adam: well in yahoo you need to be able to fill up your lineup with 2 centers on full days but if one of white or deandre isnt playing i have an empty slot haha coz theyre my only 2 Center eligible players.

        • Adam
