Brook Lopez had a November to remember but it looks like he may have a December to forget. Yesterday it was announced that he will miss at least the next two games with a foot bone issue. The same foot bone that caused him to miss almost all of last year. Not good, son! If you’re in an active league chances are Andray Blatche has been scooped up by now but if he hasn’t then you have my permission to go right now and pick him up. I’ll wait, I’ll just eat this bacon, egg and cheese sandwich that’s sitting here. Go on, go on, check your waiver wire, I’ll wait … Ok, you’re back, great! I hope you got him. My sandwich was pretty good, a little bit overcooked, I like the egg over easy and a little bit soft for some flavor, never fried! Ewwww. Anyway, where were we? Oh, right, Andray Blatche! Right now he’s only 11% owned in Yahoo! leagues and I suspect that number will shoot up by the end of the day today. Your other possible beneficiaries are Kris Humphries (revival!) and Reggie Evans. If Blatche is gone and you need some boards, give Reggie a look-gander, he’s currently only owned in 4% of Yahoo! leagues. You’re so sneaky.
Ok, ok, peoples, it’s Add/Drop Friday! Let’s get to the rest, shall we? (Please note all ownership percentages are from Yahoo!)
Ricky Rubio – 67% – It’s now or never, man! Or woman!
Kawhi Leonard – 48% – I think I read in my favorite sports publication, the USA Today, that he’s back tomorrow. Go scoop him up!
Alonzo Gee – 34% – Averaging almost 34 mpg over his last 5.
Antawn Jamison – 32% – I don’t like him much to be honest but whatevs, worth a spec grab. You can always lose him. Hell, you can always lose any of these guys!
Kirk Hinrich – 31% – Averaging over 5 dimes per. Not bad!
Rodney Stuckey – 25% – Had a terrible November. I think he’ll have a better December. He can’t do much worse!
Kevin Seraphin – 25% – Been there, done that, gone over him ad nauseam. Expect inconsistency. Latin!
Jarrett Jack – 21% – Finally producing the way I expected him to once Brandon Rush went down for the count.
Kyle Singler – 20% – As frequent commenter allballs might say, “minutes, precious, precious minutes.”
Markieff Morris – 19% – The new, ahem, starting power forward in Phoenix. For however long that lasts and for whatever that’s worth.
Jeremy Pargo – 17% – Getting the burn!
Bismack Biyombo – 14% – Cheap source of blocks and boards. Hopefully he can get his minutes up just a bit more. Just a teeny weeny bit, I’m not asking for much, like to 23-25 per.
Alexy Shved – 8% – Makes for a decent streamer if Andrei Kirilenko is to miss any more time with his sore back. Ak47 has a sore back!? Go figure!
Tiago Splitter – 8% – Been producing a bit. You’ll pick him up and he’ll probably fart on your pillow. Hopefully he won’t fart on your pillow. That’s disgusting.
Jamal Tinsley – 6% – Looks like Mo Williams is planning to play tonight but just in case he’s not then Jamal makes for a decent streamer.
Carlos Delfino – 5% – Expected back this weekend and with Chandler Parsons out could be in store for a few nice games. Maybe, maybe not!
Leandro Barbosa – 4% – Worth streaming this weekend with Rajon Rondo suspended for, um, being stoopid.
Jason Smith – 3% – Getting burn with Anthony Davis out and anyone getting burn is worth a look-see in my book. So go look and see!
Terrence Ross – 2% – Don’t forget I had Kyle Singler in my Add/Drop post a few weeks ago when he was only 2% owned and now he’s up to 20%. I care, I really do! Terrance could be the next Singler! Maybe.
Daequan Cook -1% – Worth streaming only if Chandler Parsons and Carlos Delfino are both sidelined.
Luis Scola – 85% – Not worth owning in shallow leagues at the moment. And by shallow I mean 10 team leagues or less. Just for clarification!
Derrick Rose – 74% – I heard he’s graduated to walking with just a cane now.
Jose Calderon – 68% – Not worth owning in shallow leagues. Would love to see him dealt though but who knows when and who knows where? Like that lyric in Rent! Yes, I know, I just went deep on that one. Nevermind.
Andrew Bogut – 57% – Turns out he actually had microfracture surgery last year. Who knew??! Turns out nobody.
Jason Kidd – 57% – I had him as a Drop two weeks ago when he was healthy so you can only imagine how I feel about him now.
Elton Brand – 55% – Averaging 22 mpg/6 ppg/6 rpg/.355 FG/1.2 bpg and that’s without Dirk Nowitzki in the lineup. Yikes! Which is a nice way of saying, “Shit, those numbers really blow”.
Jared Dudley – 50% – Hold in deep leagues but can be lost elsewhere. If he was hitting 2 threes a game and playing poorly I could live with it but homey is only hitting 1.2 threes per and you got him for threes in the first place so what’s the use? Am I right or am I right? Trick question!
Spencer Hawes – 45% – Have you looked at his minutes and lines lately? Don’t eat at least 3 hours before if you do.
Sam Dalembert – 45% – Averaging 17 mpg. Um, yippee?
Dorell Wright – 43% – The party appears to be over. It was a good November though!
Wilson Chandler – 37% – The party never got started. Insert sad face emoticon here.
Jeff Green – 9% – Wasn’t playing much before he had a knee bone problem. Now his problems are compounded! Set him free, if he loves you he will come back. I don’t think he’s coming back.
