Even when Bogut has sat Powell hasn't played big minutes. Last game Bogut rested and Powell came off the bench and played 24 min, which isn't enough to relevant in standard leagues

Dirk basically hasn't played this year. Powell's role is the same as what it has been the year.

I've watched a lot of Whiteside the past couple years, and he seems to tinker with his FT form a lot. When he went of his run in the second half last year, he was doing something visibly different from before (basically started using his jumper from the FT line). This year he's doing something different again. No idea if he figures it out, but I think the different shooting forms mean there was more to last year than just SSS fluke, and that gives me a bit of optimism.

yeah guys FT and blks just arent there this year to make him a top 10 non-punt player. im selling while the overall proj is high and hes rated above giannis and butler who have well rounded value games and have outplayed him all year. last week when his projection was 0.84 he had only posted 4 game lines above that all year. nobody else has projections 0.50 higher than season value due to multiple category underperformance. whats the story line that im missing when everybody else that underperforms has been slashed within 10 games. the fact is hes going to the line more often and shooting worse, falling into the same monster trap that every other big man does and should be treated the same. i don’t think players can maintain 4 bpg its just way too risky on a daily basis when his entire value hinges on that. his lines are nearly the same as drummond except the fact that you are swapping blocks for steals yet his projection is 0.80 higher due to these oversights.

What's with the low games projection for chandler? His rank changes 40 spots when I go from total value to per game value. I know he is injury prone but he doesn't currently have issues like nowitzki or parsons. He's projected for 6 games less than gary harris and harris isn't returning until the 15th.

His FT% caps him at around top-150. Once that normalize back up, he'll be capped at around top-100 by his low usage. Unless he can get more than 7 FGA, he can't move up. I just done see where the usage would come from when sharing the court with Kemba and Batum. MKG and Marvin are not low usage guys either.

Going to assume you read that on the rotoworld blurb. Word to the wise is use it for the core info and take all the other gibberish they write with a grain of salt. For example, his recent ft% is way below career norms which is clearly affecting his recent ranks...that will correct its self.

The longer he sits on my IR, the more I worry about his minutes once he comes back. No one on the Nets averages over 28 mpg. Is Jeremy Lin--a backup who happens to start on a shitty team, and who just missed a month due to injury--going to average 4 more minutes than everyone else on the roster? Isiah Whitehead ain't knockin on the door, but that doesn't matter so much in today's NBA. The new BKN regime has an extremely conservative minutes allocation.

To me the real issue is that the nuggets management sucks. In 2013 they The Denver Nuggets traded 27th pick Rudy Gobert to the Utah Jazz in exchange for the 46th pick, Erick Green, and cash. In the following year they draft two big men. That just shows they have no real direction for the team. Jokic and Nurkic are both suffering from poor management. Not to mention they have been trying to trade Faried forever. Anyway...this is a real annoying situation for a fan and fantasy.

Getting killed this year because of NBA owners and their restrictions/limitations to players minutes. This is not a structural injury, it's ridiculous they keep him out for so long. They must be after some insurance money back on his contract. It's a joke.

Fizadale said after the game that Harrison is the most confident rookie he has ever seen. Fwiw Harrison has looked very competent to me in a what is a small sample size. He denied very well down the stretch last night and also had a great spin move for a key basket in the final minutes of the game. He's a former top recruit out of high school so there's real talent here. I hope they let him play a bit to see if there's something here before signing a vet

His ceiling isn't capped by his low usage, it's his current FT% and the fact that he averages less than 27 minutes. He's been playing more, but his fouling is another consideration. Also, a lot of his value right now is coming from his high FG%, something that wouldn't be helped by higher usage.

The main thing for me is Danny has his shot back. He's one of those set and forget type players, his stea and block might come in a couple of big bunches and then he might not have a few for a few games. When you get those 1-1-1 type players, they don't necessarily get 1-1-1 every game. It might be 4 steals one game, then none for four. I think he's a hold.

In practice every day or so I'll look at the BBM projections of available players and my rostered players to see if I am rostering the best available (theoretically). Obviously team build, player trends, positions etc go into the decision process as well. You will usually notice when an available player make a jump in their projections.

#36888
In this case I have been looking at him all day today, because he just got dumped in my league. I noticed a jump in his projected Z-score a little while ago. There is also a display column in projections you can select showing the last time the projections were updated (12/1).

@36888 this may seem like dumb question but I see comments similar to yours and I'm curious. How do you know the projections have changed? Is there a way to see that or have you just looked at RoLo enough to know that there was a change?

He will be on 16-20 minute limit initially, but the 27 is for season long minutes. We think he'll be ramped up in the new year and likely get 30+ in January. Combine that with the initial 16-20 and that should put him around 27

He had a career-high block rate last season as well, which has regressed. He is going through a cold streak and he will bounce back, but he isn't a very good player and Kaminsky could conceivably cause him to lose a couple of minutes when he does return.

Also, really can't do any basketball activities when your thumb is the problem...not like you can buddy tape it as with a finger and keep going. As far as the big toe..it's by far the most responsible for balance and movement. So, depending on severity yes he could easily miss multiple games.

Sprains can take a while to heal and often it's hard to put a concrete time table on them....also some form of tearing is generally involved. I suggest you look up the varying degrees and educate yourself before complaining about a player sitting for a while with "just a sprain".

If a thumb sprain keeps him out two weeks, I can only imagine what a big toe sprain does to him.

.78FT so far this year: "It's mostly a comfort thing," explained Adams to a captive media audience in Oklahoma. "It's just repetition, and trying to stay focused. It's definitely a mental thing. "Coach Darko, the little Serbian guy over there, it's his work mate. He's terrific, he does a good job and has a lot of patience which is huge for me. "He'll come in and like punch me in the stomach ... I swear to God, he'll punch me in the stomach or slap me on the arm really hard and he'll just say make a free-throw ... I'm like OK, with that stress of whatever it is you have to stay locked in and focused on what you need to do."

That comment is for a new J Cole album. Cole is from NC, so is Warren. It has nothing to do with his return.

What do you guys think about his poor FG% over the last few weeks? Does he revert to his mean and projections or is this something structurally different? Is he being asked to shoot more and further from the basket? Do his projections need to be revised? He was dropped today (right after an 8 block game!), probably b/c of his poor FG% over the last few weeks. Think of dumping Kanter for him, but the FG% difference scares me (Zeller on the WW too). Thoughts?

Rubio could have had 20 assists last night but no one on Minny can catch and shoot. They all catch it wide open and look to dribble. And when they do shoot, they shot 10% off his passes. Tibs gave him 40 minutes and free reign last nite so things may get much better.

the FT% has been an anchor(in a bad way) to his ranking, his other stats are solid and trending up. He can't keep shooting 50-60% after shooting 75-77% the past two seasons...can he? Deciding between him and Tyler Johnson.

lbjames, the point is i shouldn't have to ignore the projections. they should be adjusted to reflect what is going on. right now, he looks to be shooting 3s and there is no reason to believe he won't continue. my issue is w/ monster making seemingly random choices about when to buy into current season trends that differ from historical performance

ferris, health is a real factor. sure, he strung some good games together but it took him the whole season last year to get there and then he got injured again. even if he hits that peak this year, i'd bet his overall value lands closer to where it's been the past 2 years, so i think the recent slashes in proj are warranted

slow start is over. assists have been back up at 4.5 -5/ game for the past few weeks. I think he'll finish with value closer to the original bbm projections (2nd round in 8cat). glad to have stayed the course with him. having said that, I'm thinking of buying low on Millsap with Dipo, taking into account playoff sched. what do you think? UP for Dipo, DOWN for MIllsap

From what I've read/heard that was just because Nurkic and Faried *really* care about starting and Jokic was being the adult. I think eventually Jokic ends up starting. Malone seems to be slowly figuring out who works well together, although he still seems to struggle managing minutes and rides guys too long (before tonight Jokic played 18+ consecutive minutes to close the previous three games).

Really hard to bank on any of this being the norm since Rjax is out. Also, last year he had a similar stretch where he was around top 50 for a month or so only to bottom out again. I could be wrong but I just don't think his current production is very sustainable.

cfwcool and jw9nine -- I'm all for taking a flier on Ingram, but so far, we've seen the Lakers fill holes by continuing to spread out the minutes with another bench player or a modest uptick in minutes for a couple current rotation players. I'm not certain Young's absence does more than give Metta World Peace some spot action and give Clarkson, Lou Williams, and Ingram a couple extra minutes most nights. Coach Walton likes to share and be inclusive.

IrvDizzle -- Parsons is going to have the biggest impact on Ennis' minutes, and he's projected to be back around the same time that Parsons is, so it's hard to expect too much extra run for Ennis in Conley's absence if they're both playing.

He started zero games as a SF/F last year and his percentage of minutes logged there was less than in years past. There really is no legit reason for him to have SF unless he earns it when he comes back.

dylan33 -- The reports speculating on which PG will be added were sparse. Sorry, I don't have a good read on the likelihood of one of them being added over the other two. If Toney Douglas were to get signed, he probably has the most upside across the board of the three. Kendall has the most upside in assists.

question: you covered the Harrison vs Baldwin IV choice for Conley being out until Jan but I was wondering if, when he gets back, James Ennis would be an option to benefit from Conley's absense. He was pretty decent prior to his injury. What are your thoughts? thanks.
