This is starting to get Redick-ulous!!

Redick-ulous is the word of the day, or perhaps the word of the first month of NBA action with the injuries piling up on a daily basis. J.J. Redick took a nasty fall on Friday night as I told you yesterday and sure enough, we learn today he has a hand fracture and a torn ligament in his right elbow. Both injuries are to his shooting arm and what does JJ do best? Yep, shoot. Six to eight weeks is the initial recovery time and as good as Redick has been, he can be dropped in all leagues, which forces us to go searching for three pointers. The team will be cautious with JJ’s injured wing, considering that’s how he brings the bread home. The Clippers look to be starting Willie Green in place of Redick, but Jamal Crawford will receive the biggest bump in value. There were only seven games yesterday, but there was no shortage of NBA Fantasy news so lets get to it…..

John Henson – 13/13/3/3blks Henson got a start yesterday and did not disappoint and should be owned everywhere. I don’t think he will start for the rest of the year, but he will be a stud while doing so. Make sure he’s not available.

Brandon Knight – 20/9/8/1/1 BK messed around and almost got himself a triple double and looked very good last night. He wont keep this up, but it’s a very good sign.

Channing Frye – 17/6/2/stl I’ve been getting a lot of questions on Frye because he doesn’t blow your socks off but he does give you a little of everything in all categories. He is ownable everywhere for that very reason.

Trey Burke – 20/6/3/2stls w/ 4 treys. Burke had his best game to date yet and there will be more to come. Just don’t expect him to be consistent.

Andrew Bynum – 20/10/3/5blks Bynum all of the sudden blew up last night and looked like the Bynum of 2010. I dont think it keeps up but if you want to take a flier on him for upside, go for it! I’m just not recommending anyone drop a very good player for him. Too risky.

DeJuan Blair – 10/8/1/2stls Was moved back to the bench as Samuel Dalembert (12/7/blk) was moved back into the starting lineup.

Tony Snell – 18/4/2/stl Snell is playing very well for the Bulls, which is making Mike Dunleavy (2/1/3/stl) virtually useless. He’s an ok player to own until Jimmy Butler returns and a few weeks.

Cartier Martin – 12/5/1/blk Got a start with Lou Williams out due to rest. Ignore.

Alan Anderson (6/7/3) and Tyshawn Taylor (6/stl) started for the Nets last night with Deron Williams and Paul Pierce out, but did not impress.

Zach Randolph – DNP – Randolph sat out last night with an ingrown toenail….? Disgusting,but better than a real injury right? Ed Davis (10/8/stl) got the start. Meh.

Jose Calderon – DNP – Sat out with a bone bruise on an ankle. He was a game time decision so he should be back soon.

  1. ARE YOU KIDDING ME !!!! Anthony Davis with a Fracture WTF am I gonna do now. How do I possibly fill the void with a loss of stats like that. Anderson is on a team already, do you have any faith in any other replacement for him on that team ?? Thx for the Help SIGH : (

  2. Drop my bench players are Affalo, Noah and Tyreke Evans drop evans for a tyson chandler hold with the loss of Davis?? Nothing else for a big is out there other than ersan n scola out there. Sully, henson, gone. 12 team H2H 9 cats..

  3. Hey guys, what do you think about Oj Mayo this season? I might drop him in one league for Jeremy Lin (bad idea?), but I’m still kinda wondering what to do with him in my other leagues. Thanks!

  4. @tentyme: I feel your pain.

    @Hec/J-Fort: With AD out for a few weeks, I’m left with Koufos and Valanciunas to hold down the center spot. I’m in a 14 team league so not much left on the wire. Which of these guys would you recommend to try and somewhat fill the void left by AD (or just to have on my roster)?
    Mozgov, Ed Davis (those are the decent ones, the next ones are just…well you’ll see), Sacre, Faverani, Birdman, Shawn Williams, Giannis Antetokounmpo, MASON Plumlee, Richard Jefferson, Marcus Thornton, and Mo Williams.
    And one more question…what are your thoughts on Tyshawn Taylor? Pierce is out 2-4 weeks, and I think D-Will D-won’t play this week (you see what I did there?)

  5. Hec, this is regarding my 18 team league – H2H, 9 cat daily. I’m sitting in 5th place and coming up to a softer part of the schedule. I’ve played nearly all contenders so far and haven’t lost yet. Someone dropped Marcus Thornton. Looking at my team, who should I drop? I know taken at face value, Thornton is better than a lot of my guys, but most of my team has solidified roles while Thornton doesn’t. I just picked up Giannis Antetokounmpo and I’m wondering if he is even worth stashing? I feel like right now, with a healthy team, I have room for 1 stash. And I feel like he has a ton of upside (3s, rebs, stls, blocks) if they decide to go with the youth movement in the latter part of the season. But is he too young to really contribute this year? Should I drop him or someone else for Thornton? Or just keep my team as is…thanks, Hec.

    Also on the wire is Hollis Thompson, MKG, Kaman, Moore(E’Twaun). I actually passed on Snell and went more long-term with Giannis. Not sure if I’m being too optimistic on him.

    My Team:

    Kemba, Rubio, Wroten
    Manu, PJTucker, A.Bradley
    Batum, H.Barnes, Giannis
    Ibaka, McBob
    Hawes, Bass

    I know I probably need another big more than another guard (which is why i decided to roll with Giannis over Snell when he was available), but I can also just play to my strengths since it’s head to head. Thanks for the advice!!

  6. Hey guys! Just a quick question, should I pick up Brandon Knight and drop Jameer Nelson? I’m looking for assists and 3pm, but Jameer’s shooting percentage is killing me, and he seems to be really injury prone. Thanks!

  7. @tentyme – Tell me about it man. Sucks! Either Aminu or Tyreke will pick up the slack. You can’t drop Davis. Ersan may be a good add if you have someone to drop. If Tyke doesn’t pick it up soon, he will be droppable.

    @Tom – Dirk maybe? Someone 3rd to 4th round value.

    @Drez1 – I wouldn’t drop him just yet. Especially for Lin. I think he will come around. Be patient for a little while longer.

    @allballs – Mozgov may be your best bet right now. More free agents will come along. Lol! very nice!

    @Nick – Giannis is definitely a nice stash and has the best upside. If you can afford to hang on to him for a while, go for it.

    @how to purchase gold – Thanks!!!

    @Michael – If Knight starts to play anywhere near what he did on Saturday night then go for it. Jammer will sit a lot and may get traded at some point.
