I’ve posted that song at least three times since I’ve been at Razzball and…..it never gets old and always hits the spot. Anyways, I’m recharged and I know all you degenerates are itching for hoops to be back. Now, it’s #winningtime now, as the fantasy playoffs are just around the corner. Check the playoff schedules and stream, stream, then stream some more. The more minutes and counting stats you can accumulate, the better your chances for achieving fantasy glory. Josh Lloyd over at BasketballMonster.com put it best: some days are better to stream than others. When there’s a full slate of games, your best players will be active, leaving no room for streamers. You want to stream on days when the slate is small or teams are on back-to-backs. Utilize that wisdom to gain an advantage.

Here’s what I saw last night:

 

Giannis Antetokounmpo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
33 16 4 3 1 2 0/3 13/23 7/11

In 32 minutes. On the season, he’s averaging 30.9 minutes per game. LOL! The Universe keeps blocking him from achieving fantasy glory, but G is going to turn that U upside down, to make it frown. G is on pace to be a 1/1/1 member with 30 points, 13.5 boards, and 5.8 dimes per game. LOL! The usage rate is 38.5! The one bugaboo, which is quite a big one, is the free throw shooting, which is at 61% on 10.4 attempts. As a result, he’s a top 30 player.

Khris Middleton

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
28 8 3 1 0 0 4/5 11/18 2/2

Warm it up, Khris! He already did. Not only has he warmed it up, but he’s been en fuego. On the season, he’s the #21 player for fantasy. 20.6 points, 2.5 tres, 6.2 boards, 4.3 dimes, and 1 steal with 50% from the field and 90% from the line. He’s averaging 29.6 minutes per game! Paging John Lennon. Paging John Lennon.

Just imagine if Middleton played 35 minutes per game.

Eric Bledsoe

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 4 6 2 1 1 2/5 8/14 1/1

He Bledsoe that G could reach the pantheon of fantasy greatness. Ha! I kid. G just went out and snatched that [email protected]#!, but it makes for a good story. Eric 3:11. Anyways, he hasn’t been the fantasy force that we’ve been accustomed to over the years, but he should finish as a top 50-60 player when it’s all said and done. Points, tres, boards, dimes, and steals are what he provide.

Christian Wood

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
18 11 1 1 1 4 1/5 4/10 9/10

Did not start….LOL!…..but did end up playing 27 minutes off the bench. What is Dwayne Casey doing?

Bruce Brown

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 10 7 0 0 0 1/2 7/10 1/1

Played 32 minutes off the bench. With Reggie Jackson out of the picture and Luke Kennard still nursing an injury, Brown is the man on the second unit. Impressively, Brown did all that damage last night garnering a usage rate of only 14. If he’s on the wire, scoop him up.

Bam Adebayo

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
28 19 7 3 1 3 0/1 9/20 10/12

This is the dawning of the age of Adebayo. Age of Adebayoooooooooo. Adebayoooooooooooo. Man, y’all know the love I’ve had for Bam since the Summer League before his rookie season, so……I’m weeping tears of joy right now. He even made his free throws!! Oh, Lord have mercy. The only thing missing from his game is the tres. I think we will see it develop over the next few years.

Goran Dragic

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 3 3 0 0 3 3/5 4/9 8/8

In 27 minutes off the bench. Dragic is barely a top 200 player but he garners a usage rate around 27 and plays 28 minutes per game. He provides points, tres, boards, and dimes. He just doesn’t provide the D….Sorry, Goran. ragic it is from now on.

Andre Iguodala

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
8 5 1 1 2 1 1/5 3/7 1/3

In 23 minutes off the bench. I wouldn’t expect more than 23 minutes per game, so he really needs to be efficient in the defensive categories to provide value. If you’re expecting offense from Iggy, then you’re doing it wrong.

Trae Young

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
50 2 8 2 1 7 8/15 12/25 18/19

Image result for on fire gif

A career-high!!!! Do you hear that? What’s that sound?

The #13 player for fantasy on the season!!! 30.1 points, 3.5 tres, 4.4 boards, 9.2 dimes, and 1.2 steals with 44% shooting from the field and 85% from the line. Trae doesn’t get his Mutombo on and turns the ball over 4.9 times per game. I doubt he ever gets his block on, but the turnovers can definitely improve. That’s a scary thought.

De’Andre Hunter

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 6 2 1 0 1 3/3 7/12 0

Over the past six games, Hunter has stolen 1, 1, 5, 1, 2, and 1. Has he figured it out? It sure looks like it. We knew he had the physical tools to be a steals guy. Hunter plays a ton of minutes on a Hawks team that plays hyper fast. He provides tres, boards, and steals. The points probably won’t be voluminous but he has scored double figures in five of the last six games.

Cam Reddish

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 4 1 2 2 0 1/5 6/12 3/3

In 37 minutes off the bench. Cam received extra run because Dewayne Dedmon got into foul trouble and the Hawks went small, so don’t expect this amount of run to be the norm. The shooting efficiency is always the wild card, as he has the potential to shoot 50% from the field, but more often than not, it’s in the mid-30% range. He is primarily a steals guy.

John Collins

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 7 1 2 3 2 0 5/9 2/2

When Trae is en fuego like last night, you can’t expect anyone else to have a big game. With that said, it’s very promising that Collins continues to be a beast on the defensive side of the ball. The points will come. He’s a top 10 player on the season.

P. J. Washington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 5 4 2 1 3 1/3 6/11 4/5

P. J. had been terrible recently. How bad you ask? Barely a top 300 player over the prior eight games, so last night was a good site to see. He’s going to get the run on a nightly basis and has the potential to be a 1/1/1 player. While he can contribute across the board, he won’t wow you in any category.

Cody Zeller

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
16 8 2 2 1 0 0 5/5 6/8

In 25 minutes as the starter. Cody isn’t sexy…Sorry, Mrs. Zeller. I didn’t mean like that. For fantasy, he’s kind of meh, but most of that is due to the 23 minutes he averages per game. If he played over 30 minutes, he’d be a for sure fantasy asset. As it stands, he will grab boards and chip in some defensive stats.

Malik Monk

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 6 3 0 0 3 2/5 7/13 9/9

In 30 minutes off the bench. I guess he didn’t need to be traded in order to have value. Over the past four games, Monk has been a top 50 player, averaging 29.6 minutes, 21.5 points, 2.5 tres, 3.8 boards, 2.3 dimes, and 1 steal. He’s been shooting 53% from the field and 94% from the line. Now, he’s not going to be this efficient, as he’s more like a 44% shooter, but he’s a bonafide scorer and is getting the minutes. The Hornets aren’t doing anything significant, so Monk should continue getting the run.

Thaddeus Young

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 11 1 4 1 3 2/3 10/18 0

Continues to start and played 36 minutes. Anyone remember the song, Forever Young? No? Just me? Well, okay then. In 11 games as a starter this season, Young has been a top 100 player, averaging 32.8 minutes, 14.2 points, 1.4 tres, 6.3 boards, 1.6 dimes, 1.8 steals, and 0.5 blocks. He’s shot 51% from the field (good) but 53% from the line (vomit inducing). At least the volume is low at 1.2 attempts per game. Now, when Lauri Markkanen returns, Young will return to the bench and play around 22 minutes per game. Until then, though, reap the rewards.

Tomas Satoransky

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 6 8 1 0 2 2/5 4/9 2/3

I can feel that trip-dub coming soon. Granted, I’ve had that feeling all season, so take that for whatever it’s worth. Hey! He has messed around once in his career.

Ryan Arcidiacono

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
3 3 1 0 0 0 1/5 1/6 0

Got the start because Chandler Hutchison and Kris Dunn were out due to injury. He’s likely to get some more starts, but he kind of sucks. Scratch that. He sucks.

Coby White

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 0 3 0 1 2 0/5 3/11 6/7

In 30 minutes off the bench. With all the injuries, White has and will be getting around 30 minutes of run per game. He can provide points and tres, but the shooting efficiency is worse than rough. If White entered Rikers Island with a ball, all the inmates would cower in fear.

Kyrie Irving will have shoulder surgery and miss the rest of the season.

Spencer Dinwiddie

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 5 8 0 1 2 1/6 7/19 7/10

With Kyrie off the floor, Dinwiddie garners a 31.8 usage rate, an increase of 1.9%. Dinwiddie doesn’t provide the D…..inwiddie it is, but he does provide plenty of points, tres, and dimes. The shooting efficiency is poor, though. On the season, he’s shooting 41% from the field and often shoots in the high-30s.

Caris LeVert

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
25 6 5 1 0 3 3/8 9/29 4/5

With Kyrie off the floor, LeVert garners a 31 usage rate, an increase of 3.3%. I was skeptical of LeVert this season, even after he started balling out. So, I apologize to those who I misguided with my stupidity. Like Dinwiddie, the shooting efficiency is an issue, but he provides points, tres, boards, dimes, and steals. The upside is high for LeVert but it may not always be a smooth ride.

DeAndre Jordan

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
14 15 4 0 0 1 0 5/11 4/5

In 37 minutes off the bench, as Jarrett Allen was benched after getting punked by Joel Embiid for 13 minutes. Jordan is a boards and blocks guy. He’s averaging 21.3 minutes per game on the season. There’s a chance he gets more, but I have my doubts. I wouldn’t go too crazy over this one game sample size.

Tobias Harris

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 12 6 2 0 3 0/4 10/20 2/3

46 minutes! In an OT game. Harris is such a solid fantasy asset. He’s not a league winner by any stretch of the imagination, especially since he doesn’t kill it in any one category. What he does do is contribute a little something something in every cat. As a result, he’s a top 60 player.

Joel Embiid

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
39 16 2 2 2 5 1/1 10/20 18/19

Damn…..

That boy good.

Who is more impressive? G or Embiid?

Ben Simmons did not play due to a back issue, so Raul Neto received the start and provided 6 points, 2 boards, and 4 dimes in 28 minutes.

Josh Richardson

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
7 7 3 3 1 3 1/6 3/12 0

My RichardSON…..We have to recalibrate the tracking software!!! Regardless, it was nice to see the defensive stats. That’s what you’re primarily about. I’m not sure I buy into it, but he’s someone I’m keeping a closer eye on. Well, if that were to happen then a restraining order would probably issued against me because I always feign over my RichardSON.

Alec Burks

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
19 4 1 0 0 0 2/4 6/11 5/5

In 30 minutes off the bench. Words of his demise were greatly exaggerated? Naw, let’s see how things shake out with Ben Simmons in action.

De’Anthony Melton

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
24 6 3 1 1 1 4/5 5/10 4/4

In 23 minutes off the bench. The playing time has ticked up recently. YIPEE!!! From 18.4 to 23.1. yipee….Melton is a steals guy who will grab some boards and dish out some dimes. It’s too bad he doesn’t get more run.

Harrison Barnes

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
32 1 1 1 0 3 7/11 11/17 3/4

Mehrrison Barnes. Every once in a while he will score some points and force the repressed memories to surface and make us remember that Kevin Durant joined the Warriors because Barnes was so shitty in the playoffs.

The shooting guard situation in Sacramento remains split: Bogdan Bogdanovic got the start and played 24 minutes while Buddy Hield played 27 minutes off the bench. Blech. BogBog contributed 9 points, 1 board, 3 dimes, and 1 steal, while Buddy produced 20 points, 3 boards, 4 dimes, and 3 steals.

Robert Covington

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
20 5 1 0 4 0 5/10 7/13 1/1

The Lord giveth and the Lord blocketh away. Covington is in the perfect situation and should provide plenty of tres, boards, steals, and blocks. The only hole in his game is the shooting efficiency, as he’s at 43% for the season and sometimes bricks himself into the 30% range.

Russell Westbrook

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
21 5 10 1 0 4 1/2 10/20 0

James Harden

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
29 3 10 3 2 1 3/12 6/16 14/15

Awww, so cute. Matching stat lines. James just accessorized with the free throws. The Rockets pacified the Warriors, 135-105, so it was all fun and games for the dynamic duo.

Jeff Green

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
17 4 0 1 0 2 4/5 6/8 1/2

In 24 minutes off the bench in his Rockets debut. Danuel House only played 19 minutes, so that looks to be the guy most affected. We shall see how D’Antonio continues with his rotations, though, especially since Eric Gordon was out and Green isn’t known to be the best defender.

Andrew Wiggins

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
22 3 0 1 2 1 2/4 10/17 0

Over the past three games, Wiggins has been a top 15 player. 2.3 steals, 1.7 blocks, and 57% shooting from the field will do that. I’m always skeptical when it comes to Wiggins, but it’s a new environment on a team with tremendous leadership. The physical talent has always been there.

Eric Paschall

PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
12 7 2 0 1 5 1/1 5/8 1/1

In 32 minutes off the bench. Outside the top 200 for fantasy. Paschall can provide some points and boards, but that’s about it.

Klay Thompson has been officially ruled out for the remainder of the season.

    hi Son! It’s great to have the fantasy hoops back in our lives until baseball season starts. Was wondering if you thought I should consider dropping Jerami Grant now that Millsap is healthy and House due to the addition of Jeff Green in Houston? Available players are Ariza, B.Brown, Kevin Porter, Monk, Dedmon, Jabari, Theis, Harrison Barnes, D Lee, D. Hunter, P. Washington and Bog Bog.

    • Son says:
      (link)

      There are some good options on the wire. It always depends on roster construction and what you want/need. I don’t have an issue dropping Grant. I’d hold off on House, though, just to see how the rotations shake out. If you need steals, then Ariza. Brown is a good pickup for points and dimes. Porter and Monk for points. Hunter for tres and steals. PJ if you want across the board production

    Morning Son! Welcome back!

    After this Sunday, my league has 3 more weeks, then the playoffs. I still have a 7 point lead over 2nd, but with news of KAT, Capela, and PG13 out for several weeks, it’s making me nervous. I really want the bye week for playoffs. I’m contemplating what to do with Capela. Dedmon was just dropped. Do I put in a waiver for him and drop Capela? Not sure what to do with KAT, but with him looking for a 2nd opinion, it’s never good news this late in the season. I have him camping in INJ since I can’t cut him anyway. I have a feeling PG13 is gonna get load managed or even out until the NBA playoffs.

    G: Trae, Booker, Brogdon, Rozier, Dinwiddie, Bruce B.
    F: PG13, Mikal, Bjelica
    C: Capela, Chriss

    Good to see you back, SON! I was getting the shakes from NBA withdrawal.

    Is Wood on the second unit? Did he sleep with Casey’s wife? How is this hateRade justified? What do you see happening with CW next season?

    And is it possible Bruce is the second-half gem for fantasy? He seems to rebound at a ridiculous rate for a 2. What do you see his RoS outlook with not many options at point (despite Casey’s similar liquid consumption on BB)?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      Lol. Me too, Jonathan.

      I have no idea what Casey is doing.

      Brown is a must own right now

        Here’s my suggestion, brother – remember the “Free Boban” and “Free Bobby” chants over the past few years?

        Can we start “Laying the Wood!” chants? Either for Christian to play or to continue his extramarital affair?

        And glad we are both riding the BB train – hot take, RoS, Bruce>Jalyen!

    AyyyyyyO!

    We’re back! My god, seemed like forever. We missed you buddy.

    I was getting antsy & actually thought of other things in life other than NBA lol.

    Over the break I was able to drop Noel for Sato.

    Was only holding Noel through the deadline anyways. What do you think ?

    Maybe Sato messes around just once for us this year.

    Any way I do not own any of Thon Maker or Naz Reid stock, but I urge the readers to go grab these guy’s. As big’s are scarce on the wire. I missed the boat on both. But yea. I think they are both almost must own in 12 team leagues at this point.

    I’m also glad you are FINALLY some what coming around on LeVert.

    Just let the shots fall… The FG% is without a doubt an issue, but man, 29 shot attempts last night ?! The volume is gonna be there, so “PUMP UP THE VOLUME”

    How is the squad looking for the stretch ?

    Jrue/Lowry/Rozier/Conley/Sato
    Oubre/LeVert/Mikal/Grant/Bertans
    Jokic/Vucevic/Bryant/Holmes/Wood

    No attachments to Grant, Mikal & watching Bryant & Holmes closely.

    Holla at your boy

    • Son says:

      AyyyyyyO!

      We back!!! Missed all y’all as well.

      I’m good with that move. So strange what happened to Noel. Maybe he’s injured. Sato WILL mess around!!!

      You heard the man. Good scoop up Naz and Thon Thon Thonthonthon.

      LOL on LeVert. When new information is presented to me, opinions often change.
      Yeah, with Kyrie gone now, the usage and volume will for sure be there. That’s half the battle.

      Hope the bigs get healthy. Grant and Holmes may be drop candidates.

    So many waiver wire gems but unfortunately, I don’t have any slot for them. I have 3 injuries at the moment. I just wish beasley would average 20+ pts while Lillard is out. Anyway, who would you play? PJW or Millsap? I have them on my bench and I need to play one until Lillard comes back. I need pts to compensate losing Lillard, rebs, and stocks.

    (link)

    12-team, 9-cat, h2h, league with keepers. I have four players concerning me at the moment, whom I’ve identified in all caps (coincidentally three are also my SG/SF guys).

    Lowry, CONLEY, Beasley, Beal, J-RICH, BARTON, HOUSE, Gallo, Chriss, Wood, Gobert

    Conley and Barton concern me because of their injuries. J-Rich and House I just worry about their value down the stretch. Barton and House are the only two realistic keepers, since I can keep them at an 11th round value next season (we can keep up to three players).

    However, would you look to trade one of them, or replace them with a Payton, Fultz, B-Brown, or Hunter?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      Yeah, Conley and Barton are worries due to injury. There’s really no way of knowing how that plays out. I wish I could say they will be fine, but no one knows. I’m not worried about JRich. He’s going to get the minutes. Whether he produces or not is the question. With House, I’d be somewhat concerned. Just have to see how D’Antoni shapes his rotations. My gut thinks House will be fine because he’s such a solid, all around player, but that’s just me. I wouldn’t drop any of those guys for the players listed, but that’s just me. If you were forced to pick up anyone, though, I’d go with Brown and Hunter

      • Juan Baloncesto says:

      It was one game when the Kings went small. I wouldn’t be too worried

  14. Trader says:
    (link)

    Coaches are so great at using the media to pump up their guys. Detroit has been hilarious…..first it was Brown is starting as our 2 guard and will play some point. Then he comes off the bench 4 hours after making that statement. Ridiculous! A nice second half for BB saved the day. I don’t trust it though.

    Now we are hearing Porter Jr gonna get point minutes. With the second unit or three guards or what?? Ugh. I grabbed him just in case they unleash him. I have Conley who we know is injury prone so today Porter is my insurance policy. Silly season is here early.

    • Son says:
      (link)

      I hear ya! Can’t trust em!

      I like Porter a lot

      • Trader says:

        Fingers crossed on him. I “reached” on draft day for defense taking Myles, RoCo and JRich (since departed) so I am committed to stocks. Been great so far. Decision time when Bryant and Conley she’d their “out” label. Here’s my current squad:

        Harden, Jrue, Lowry, VV, Conley, Smart, Porter Jr
        JJJ, Love, RoCo
        Vuce, Myles, Ibaka, Chriss
        IR: Bryant

        B Brown best on wire but a bit thin on d stats.
        Decisions looming this weekend. Thoughts welcomed!

            Thanks! Your help noted in shaping it sir!!

            If Porter Jr plays well these next two games, I will have a dilemma of who to cut when Bryant and Conley are both back. Would be one over the limit.

              If we ain’t first, we last so it don’t mean shit!

              Yes, deal with it at that time

    12 teams, 11 categories – std 9 plus OFF REB and DEF REB, keep 5 by round

    J Allen stunk so badly last night that I vomitted a little.

    Do you still recommend offering Clarke (6th) and J Murray with 2nd round pick for Allen (11), Fournier, and 7th round pick?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      It happens. Embiid made him his b.

      I don’t get swayed by one game samples. It could possibly lower the price for you. I’d acquire Allen. I don’t remember the 2nd being included there last time.

      • Jonathan says:
        (link)

        He put the B in Beta last night…

        I was more making sure the Jamal Murray loss didn’t bother you (or Clarke).

        The picks have varied, and I might be able to get him to come off that part.

        • Son says:
          (link)

          Lol. Indeed.

          Yeah, giving up both with a 2nd seems like a lot, but Allen is pretty valuable with your league settings. I’d definitely try and renegotiate the deal

          • Jonathan says:
            (link)

            Turns out the Allen owner is a bigger B than Allen.

            He sold him under my nose for Trez, which is his loss. I’ve got another offer without losing pick that should work if you think Naz is for real.

            • Son says:
              (link)

              Did you have a verbal agreement? If not, the owner didn’t do anything wrong.

              Looks like Naz will be a thing

              • Jonathan says:
                (link)

                He had been stringing the trade along for probably a week now, and said he’d do the trade if I’d send Murray instead of Rubio…I finally send it. He says, well, I need a higher pick and then I’d do it. So I do that, he says, he’ll do it. Then 30 minutes later he has that other deal…to me that’s a verbal agreement, but maybe I’m bitter. *Woosa, woosa*

                Over/Under Towns’ games the rest of season: 2.5

    Would you drop Dipo for Naz?

    Dipo has been killing me, and I have Jrue, J Murray, Rubio, Monk and Lillard on IL

    It’s the 11 cat league with 3 reb cats

    • Son says:
      (link)

      Have you tried to trade him?

      • Jonathan says:
        (link)

        Yeah – best offers I’ve gotten are one with Saric and one with Rose, who are now dropped.

        • Son says:
          (link)

          Gotcha. I was never on board with Dipo, so a drop is easy for me. Naz is probably the pickup. Now, if KAT does return and Dipo does start balling out, would you be okay either that? Because that’s well within the range of outcomes.

          • Jonathan says:
            (link)

            Yeah – I think so, especially because he left the game tonight with back issues. I really need a big to out-rebound Clarke, and I think Naz can/will if KAT is out.

            I am not sure the incentive to play James Johnson a ton or to bring KAT back, maybe even more incentive to develop their young guys, and race GS to have the worst record in West.

            I’m going with my gut – thanks, SON!

            • Son says:
              (link)

              Yup. Always trust the gut. It usually knows, as long as you’ve done the homework

    1. So JRich is back on the wire. Are we reacquiring him and dropping one from this group….Bryant, Conley, or Smart? Or hold?

    2. Streaming K Porter Jr last night was dumb. Foul trouble I know but as we discussed , coaches say this crap all the time. Could have steamed James J or Ariza instead. I have a dumb GM but can not fire him!

    • Son says:
      (link)

      hold

      KPJ got ejected early. Shit happens

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        Yep. 5 fouls in 13 minutes. I am playing him today hoping fir a reversal,

        • Son says:
          (link)

          Lol. Good luck!!!

          Sounds like a spite start to me!!!

          • Trader says:
            (link)

            Well, I need points and steals. So he could fit with extended minutes and Love out too. Doncic testing I see. Maybe Brunson?

            • Son says:
              (link)

              I’m good with Brunson

  18. eballs says:

    Got Lauri and KAT on the mend. Would you drop Lauri to put KAT on the IR and to pick up Bruce Brown?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      I don’t have an issue with that. All hands on deck right now. If you believe Markk will return to full health and help you in the playoffs, then hold

      • eballs says:
        (link)

        Yeah I’m in first right now so I’ll probably just sit tight. Just hope Lauri comes back this year

        • Son says:
          (link)

          Sounds good. Good luck

    My team :
    – Kemba,jrue,brogdon,conley
    – Kawhi,middleton,josh rich
    – Siakam,horford,WCJ,millsap

    Thanks Son

    • Son says:

      Negative

  20. Jonathan says:
    (link)

    How would you rank these guys in the 11 cat league (std 9 + off reb & def reb)?

    Monk, Bruce Brown, C Zeller, T Thompson, PJ Washington, Thad Young, and RJ Barrett?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      Brown, PJ, Monk, Zeller, Young, TT, and RJ

  21. Trader says:

    Best stash to contribute in a week or so? Herro, Len, Gasol, Powell? Unfair question I imagine Dr SON. But there you go.

    Porter and Brunson were such costly pickups. Cost me three categories this week. I have to work hard now to protect my bye. Ugh. Stuff happens.

    • Son says:
      (link)

      I can’t even predict when I’m going to take a dump tomorrow. With that said, Gasol and Powell are the ones who most interest me. Keep an eye on their injury status.

      Not much you can do about Porter and Brunson. Injury and ejection are outlier outcomes. Hope the forecast is smooth and sunny ahead

      • Trader says:
        (link)

        JJJ out for a few weeks so need to put him in my IR slot. So much for planning ahead!

        Best replacement from this list?

        Ariza, Bazemore, Josh Jackson, Dieng, Reddish, Prince, Bjelica, B Brown, Temple.

        • Son says:
          (link)

          I like Reddish and Bjelica the most out of that group

    Hey, need stock and best overall which big to pickup for ros: naz, jj, jallen, maker, pjw, reddish?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      It’s between Naz and PJ for me. PJ has the higher floor and more guaranteed playing time, but Naz has more upside, but lower floor, since much of his value is tied to KAT

      • Anthony says:
        (link)

        Naz more game in playoffs. Going with naz

        • Son says:
          (link)

          Illmatic

  23. JohnSON says:
    (link)

    What up SON! Better big for RoS with focus on rebounds?

    Naz or Giles?

    • Son says:
      (link)

      JohnSON!!! Ha!

      Probably have to go with Reid
