With news that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks Jeff Taylor stepped into the starting lineup and dropped 20/8/1 with a block, steal and 2 threes in 37 minutes. What can you expect from him going forward? Not 20/8! That’s of’ shizzle! How about 12/5 and maybe a three per? That sounds kind of reasonable, maybe a little better (doubt it!), maybe a little worse. If you like that song, than turn the radio up, Taylor is playing! Here’s what else I saw in fantasy basketball last night.
Tony Wroten – 21/8/9/1/1 Wroten had a big game in place of Michael Carter-Williams, so dont expect this to continue but in the meantime, stream!
Khris Middleton – 29/7/2/2/1 Had a career night last night, but don’t go racing to pick him up. I’ll be surprised if he does it again all year.
John Henson – 19/17/4/blk I told you last weekend that Henson would be ownable throughout the entire universe had he earned a starting job. Well……
Brandon Knight – 20/6/6/3stls Suddenly playing very well and is starting to become ownable in most formats now.
Andrew Bynum – 20/13/2/2blks Bynum is a nice add for upside if you are willing to take the risk. Just expect disappointment. That is all.
Nikola Vucevic – DNP with a sprained ankle, so Andrew Nicholson (8/3/blk) got the start, but he will move back to the bench once Vuc returns and Glen Davis (4/9/2/1) will slide over to power forward.
Terrence Jones – 16/10/1/3/3 Got back on track in a big way and Omri Casspi was moved back to a bench role. Thank god.
Patrick Beverley – 6/1/2 Beverley has just been stinking up the joint. I’ve been dropping him for hot free agents.
Tyreke Evans – 11/2/stl Left the game with a sprained ankle but the X-rays were negative. I still think he will miss sometime though. Hopefully just a week.
Tyler Hansbrough – Left the game early in the first quarter with a shoulder sprain. Well that stupid experiment didn’t last long. Amir Johnson (17/10/3blks) can be picked back up.
Kobe Bryant – If you haven’t heard yet, the self proclaimed Black Mamba will return to the Lakers starting lineup tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow.
Robert Sacre – 11/5/1/2blks Mike D’antoni moved Jordan Hill to the bench but who knows if it will stick. i dont want to own either guys right now.
Nene Hilario – 10/2/2/2/1 Left the game with a foot injury. Wierd. I dont want to say we told you so, but hey, we friggin told you so!
