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.

An Almost 5x5 Friday

November 28, 2015 by Kyle McKeown

Gorgui Dieng- Dieng (agree) or Terrance Jones (disagree)? [transition3s]

Clint Capela- Clint or Koufos for the rest of the season outlook? [kr0z3n]

Al-Farouq Aminu- projected #55 in 9 cat, but #112 in actuality this season. I honestly don't see anything that drastic in his game changing. #112 might be where he remains [thisguy]
0% agree

Carmelo Anthony- Disregard. Was just a glitch of some kind. [Dhelix_80]

Donatas Motiejunas- Supposedly going to return within the next two weeks, worth a stash? [jrchax]
0% agree

TJ Warren- I feel like we know Lou Will's ceiling. TJ Warren has nothing but upside and the minutes are trending up. I doubt Lou Will will be a huge factor down the stretch, but TJ could be. [alnychay2]

Markieff Morris- Drop Markieff Morris for Meyers Leonard? H2H League. [cottonvalley]

Robert Covington- TOs are indeed ugly, but 41 combined 3s/stl/blk this week. Dude's looking top-40 even with the efficiency stat issues, a major profit from where you likely drafted him--to say of nothing of those who found him on the wire! [NYripper]

TJ Warren- Thanks for the input [alnychay2]. Trying to be patient for Lou to wake up this season has been tough. Too much Kobe chucking possessions [LordPedro]
100% agree

Carmelo Anthony- What the...? First they announce he's sick so late many of us had him in and then they check him in for a minute so it counts as a game played!? Knicks trolling Anthony owners hard tonight! [Dhelix_80]

Robert Covington- Covington's TOs will likely decrease when Wroten returns [thisguy]

Robert Covington- He is playing point forward since a lot of the other players on PHI don't play team ball and pass. Getting tons of TO's since he's not used to passing so much [thisguy]

TJ Warren- I just made that exact move. I don't regret it, Lou hasn't been startable. [alnychay2]
100% agree

Robert Covington- Any reason for the insane TO rate? Just shaking the rust off or is he involved more in the offense? [fiestaoffire]

TJ Warren- Drop Lou Williams for TJ Warren? [LordPedro]
100% agree
