Anthony Davis, Come Save Us

November 29, 2015 by Josh Lloyd

So, it appears Chris Paul didn't end Anthony Davis' career Friday night, despite Twitter's protests, as AD was back and destroying again. The latest injury scare may be an opportunity to buy him as low as you'll ever see, but Saturday's output might reduce that chance.

Tyson Chandler- Deep League: Projection vs. actual giving mixed signals. Chandler >> Bogut in projections. Bogut >> Chandler in actual. Bogut >> his projection. Chandler << his projection. Who is better ROS? [Massmonic]

Rodney Hood- Rodney Hood or JR Smith? [NeonChaos]

Danny Green- Honestly, this is a drop now, right? WE're not talking about a two, four or eight game slump. He's had one good game all year. [hugandi]
100% agree

Meyers Leonard- Hey guys, should i drop J. Hill for Meyers Leonard? What do you think? [thanvor]
100% agree

Darren Collison- Played more minutes than Rondo today, but it was a blowout and Rondo in foul trouble. Bayless seems to have a secure bench role, but I believe DC is the better player. I'm ok making the switch though [joshlloyd48]

Darren Collison- What are your thoughts on Collison? Debating dropping him for bayless. Need assists but it seems like the assist diff may be minor and Bayless is killing him in 3s, steals, and points. [hairychicken]

Ty Lawson- Here's the info regarding trades from CBA [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- I could be wrong, but because he was acquired via a trade and not signed as a free agent, he is not subject to the time limit when he can be moved, which is December 15th for free agents. He could be moved at any time. [joshlloyd48]

Ty Lawson- If Houston decides to move Lawson to another team, or if they decide to waive him if there is no taker at all, when is the earlier time that can happen? [javiers]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- But I'd probably say RHJ, certainly while he's hot [ak murthy]

Ian Mahinmi- I've got Bogut, Robin Lopez, and just picked up Leonard but considering picking up Mahinmi. I'm considering dropping RoLo. Worth it? [end3r.]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson- If the Nets trade away a big piece (Lopez, JJ, Young), how high does his ceiling become? @zheeduh it completely depends on what your team needs [ak murthy]

Draymond Green- Another day, another triple doub. Who's the last player to get 15/15/15? I say he'll pull one off before the end of the season [#22686]
100% agree

Emmanuel Mudiay- Jfieds21, what about them do you think needs adjusting [joshlloyd48]
0% agree

DeMarre Carroll- Trade Covington for this guy? [tjf673]
0% agree
