Just last week Steve Nash admitted that he suffered nerve damage after breaking his leg last year. That’s all fine and dandy but don’t you think it would have been helpful if he had mentioned it before the season started!? Oh, yeah, by the way, I can’t feel my legs, sorry I didn’t mention it before you drafted me in late October. Psyche! Anyway, it looks like it’s going to be a lost first half of the season for ole Stevey boy but I’m still holding out hope he’ll contribute again. Maybe I’m just a damn fool, I probably am. If you’re in a 10 teamer and can’t hold him then go ahead and launch. I own him in a 14 teamer and can’t see myself losing him, there really just isn’t much else out there that offers his upside even if he sits back to back games for the foreseeable future, or, worse, the rest of the season!In 12 teamers, you have a real decision to make, I’d only consider losing him for someone getting minutes. In the meantime, Steve Blake is your Huckleberry but, if it were me, I’d grab him and try to ship him to someone desperate for dimes somehow. If possible! For you less fortunate folk who missed out on Blake, I suppose you can go for Jordan Farmar. In any event, Kobe Bryant looms, maybe early December, who knows, but it’ll suppress everyone’s value. Hence, the reason why you want to attempt a sell high on Blake right now. As if! Here’s what else I saw yesterday on a slow day for fantasy basketball.
Danny Green – 24/10/0 with a steal, block and 6 threes in 24 minutes. On Friday I told you not to lose him in 12 and 14 team leagues but to consider launching in 10 teamers. Hope you didn’t lose him! If you lost him in 10 teamers I can’t blame you, the talent pool is deep! Let’s see if this gets him jump started, the threes should be there anyway.
Tiago Splitter – 4/5/1 in 12 minutes. I own him in a 12 team league with position caps and am finding it very difficult to plug him in right now. I’d bench before losing outright. Unless you gots a nice wire!
Metta World Peace – 13/5/3 with a steal in 32 minutes. The game was a blow out so you can’t read much into any lines but I’d go ahead and grab MWP if he’s out there on your wire in standard sized (12 teams!) leagues. Steals and such!
Andrea Bargnani – 16/1/0 with a three. On Friday I told you to grab him. It’s called opportunity no matter how big and shitty you might be! On Friday night he also dropped 25/8 so that’s pretty good!
Trevor Ariza – 15/5/2 with a three while shooting 0-5 FT. How the hell does a non-seven foot guy shoot 0-5 FT! Seven footers get a pass, not sure why. Anyhoo! Sell high! Shoo, shoo Trevor.
Steven Adams – 1/2/0 with 2 blocks in 20 lonely minutes. What, you thought he’d be playing 30+ minutes every game?, said Kevin Martin.
Nene Hilario – 14/7/6 with a block in 25 minutes before being tossed. I’m selling Nene and Trevor Ariza. At least I’d be looking to if I owned them. I’m not that silly though. I’m silly in other ways!
Tyreke Evans – Sprained his ankle bone and played only 7 minutes. His line isn’t worth mentioning but he’s now averaging 7.4 ppg on .345 FG. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
Markieff Morris – 23/5/2 with 2 steals, a block and a three in 34 minutes. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. The good kind!
Corey Brewer – 17/1/3 with 4 steals, 2 blocks and a three. Here’s what I told you in the Draft Guide: 26. Corey Brewer – Very, very underrated. Sleeper! I see value all over this pick. Like Target! Don’t say I didn’t warn you! Damn, I’m pretty fucken repetitive.
