thx matt

Kawhi could easily be in the bin in both. If you can survive this week while holding him, great. If not, let him go.

im considering to drop kawhi and pickup dinwiddie

Thanks Ralph

#49292 

in my 2 leagues: im holding kawhi in one. in the other, he's in the bin. your thoughts?

RalphApan 

Thanks for all the help!

SmanSports 

There is always a chance that Davis misses a game thuough, so that would help you

8m

avatar

SmanSports 

If you can win 5 other categories, yes. If that's a cat you need to win to win the week you need to stream hard

9m

avatar

SmanSports 

If I can only start one, Rondae. Way more trustworthy right now

9m

avatar

RalphApan 

I'm down 6 blocks in my matchup that extends until next week. I'm going up against AD, Jokic, Batum, and covington to name a few. My only real shot blockers are embiid and towns, would you recommend punting blocks altogether?

10m

avatar

#49292 

your thoughts on Niko for his recent minutes/shots?  if you can only start one - Rondae or Niko?

10m

avatar

SmanSports 

Thanks Dan, we've been here all season yes

10m

avatar

SmanSports 

He'll likely be on a minutes restriction and there's no need for the Grizz to play him 30+ mins anyway

11m

avatar

DanL15000 

This was fun and informative.  I'll be back sometime.  Just for laughs, here's the worst 12 team second place regular season team you may ever see.  (over 130 streaming moves during the season)

I thought Evans plays well when he is on court. Do you expect him play less mins now?

12m

avatar

SmanSports 

Thunder, Clippers and Celtics players to end this week

13m

avatar

SmanSports 

If you can, but if he plays it won't be much

13m

avatar

smitty2323 

anyone else who would be a good target for the rest of the week? 

13m

avatar

Will78 

Evans is questionable now. Should I add him at this point?

13m

avatar

SmanSports 

Dedmon has been pretty reliable in threes, steals, blocks lately so happy to stick with him

14m

avatar

#49292 

if looking for stls/3s, and Dedmon has a mix of those plus boards... keep dedmon? your thoughts on crowder?

15m

avatar

SmanSports 

That's a good move

15m

avatar

smitty2323 

i picked up greg monroe yesterday i droppped dedmon 

16m

avatar

DanL15000 

Thanks.  Just rechecked Wall.  First B2B back not until 3/31 - 4/1.  The other two are after and not likely to effect unless someone's playoff's go into the 4/2 week.

16m

avatar

SmanSports 

definitely Smitty. If you mean the week we are currently in, target BOS players

16m

avatar

SmanSports 

really depends what you think you will need 49292. Henson for boards and blocks. Crowder for some scoring, threes and steals

17m

avatar

smitty2323 

Can lauri be dropped for someone whos plays more games this week? (1st week of the playoffs) if so who would you pick up? 

18m

avatar

SmanSports 

I think Bell might be limited with minutes, so Zaza, but it's a gamble. I'd rather someone like Casspi

18m

avatar

#49292 

thx matt. one more - henson or crowder for next week (playoffs)?  i actually have dedmon already, but his production has been lackluster recently. so, would you drop dedmon for either henson or crowder?

19m

avatar

SmanSports 

Right now I'd take Dedmon, he's more consistent

20m

avatar

sevketersin 

 

Jaylen just got IL eligibility. I’m gonna pick up either zaza, bell or Mahinmi for the night, and then pickup Delon wright for the rest of the week. For tonight; zaza or Bell or mahinmi?

ballinlikelonzobaby 

Matty do you prefer J Allen or Dedmond for the next 2 weeks?

21m

avatar

SmanSports 

I don't think Williams is worth adding right now

21m

avatar

SmanSports 

SAS and BKN play on the same days, so no advantage with schedule. I'm leaning Dinwiddie

23m

avatar

SmanSports 

No back-to-backs for the Wizards next week, he'll likely be on minutes limit though (like they all will be)

23m

avatar

Will78 

Any thoughts on Allan Williams? He had a good run around the end of fantasy season

23m

avatar

DanL15000 

Saw somewhere no B2B for Wall and they have three on schedule?

 

23m

avatar

#49292 

Dejonte or Dinwiddie for next week (playoffs)?

24m

avatar

SmanSports 

Wall. I think he will be back the soonest

24m

avatar

wmikethompson5585 

Thank you so much

25m

avatar

liujidon 

If you have an IR spot in playoffs right now, who would you stash? Wall, Butler, Love, Kawi. 

25m

avatar

SmanSports 

Get through this week and see if we get another update over the weekend, that might help with your decision making

25m

avatar

wmikethompson5585 

This week, yes. A little worried about next week

26m

avatar

SmanSports 

Rozier this week due to injuries and schedule

26m

avatar

SmanSports 

Do you think you can win if you hold one or both of them?

26m

avatar

Lakedst 

Payne, Rozier or Bogdanovich? ROS

26m

avatar

zahmed 

mikethompson, Curry might be back next week, but Thompson looks like he will not. I'd keep Curry on the IL, and if your matchup is competitive and you need stats, I'd unfortunately drop Klay, anything to survive onto the next week.

26m

avatar

wmikethompson5585 

I do not

27m

avatar

SmanSports 

Do you have an IR spot mike?

28m

avatar

wmikethompson5585 

My playoffs started this week and I have both Curry and Thompson, do you feel that either of these guys will be back in the next week or two? Or should I just cut my losses and pick up a couple of guys.

29m

avatar

DanL15000 

I'm talking myself in Isaac.  Thanks for answering questions!

30m

avatar

SmanSports 

You are correct

31m

avatar

DanL15000 

On Hezonja.  Since Orlando passed up on his option that makes him a free agent?  Or am I wrong?

 

32m

avatar

SmanSports 

The Nugs have an very friendly schedule coming up, so good chance we see a few more good lines

32m

avatar

SmanSports 

It's his second yeah, there is no need to rush him back

33m

avatar

RalphApan 

Thoughts on Chandler keeping up his current hotstreak?

33m

avatar

DanL15000 

How many concussion protocols has Gordon had this year?  This is the second isn't it?  Gotta wonder how bad Orlando wants to play him.

 

34m

avatar

SmanSports 

I still think it's a long shot Kawhi plays soon and when he does he will be on a minutes restriction. It's hard to see any value in him right now

34m

avatar

SmanSports 

Aaron Gordon is out tonight too btw

35m

avatar

liujidon 

Do you think Kawhi will comeback next week?

37m

avatar

SmanSports 

You can drop him Will if you are in a must win battle this week

37m

avatar

SmanSports 

Kuzma is also questionable which would benefit KCP

38m

avatar

Will78 

Skal was ruled out again today. Will you still hold him?

40m

avatar

SmanSports 

I can't see Gallo playing next week

40m

avatar

SmanSports 

I still think it will be a high scoring game jrblack. KCP has been playing well, so I wouldn't have any issues starting him if he gives you what you need.

41m

avatar

ThreeDiceCeelo 

you think gallo will play next week?

41m

avatar

jrblack317 

How do you feel about the Warriors defense tonight with them missing a lot of their key players? I was a little ahead on Games pace in my roto league and am on the fence on starting KCP tonight? Is the matchup favorable given the situation of the warriors?

42m

avatar

SmanSports 

Im not getting that excited about Jennings. He has another great matchup tonight, but Bledsoe was limited in the previous game

43m

avatar

SmanSports 

Both are good streaming options Zahmed, but limited because of the players in front of them. You need to use the schedule to help decide which teams to target and then what stats you need

44m

avatar

kslight 

Sorry for the chat issue.

44m

avatar

DanL15000 

Almost hate to ask.  But Brandon Jennings.  Ten day contract.  But with Brogdon out are minutes there for Bledsoe to play some SG?  Chance that Jennings could be a twelfth round type guy?

 

44m

avatar

SmanSports 

OK, we are back

45m

avatar

zahmed 

I see BBM recommending Poeltl and VanVleet as adds often, can they really be trusted in the playoffs? Depending on gameflow, they sometimes don't get enough minutes to produce enough to make an impact.

53m

avatar

Devonator 

Drop Skal at this point if you need games? My opponent has Klay, Whiteside, JBrown, and Adams who are all out. I'm thinking I can hold on to Skal till Friday to see what happens.

54m

avatar

SmanSports 

It's fine holding Tyreke in IR if you have no one else to put there. I wouldn't keep him if you have say Irving or Ingram or another short term injury who you will need next week.

55m

avatar

SmanSports 

Ingram won't play tonight, so hopefully we get another update in the next day or two

56m

avatar

RalphApan 

What are your thoughts on dropping dinwiddie for levert? Seems like they provide similar stats with levert having a higher FG%

56m

avatar

SmanSports 

I haven't heard anything else about Kawhi except HIS medical team needs to clear him before he plays. He is almost impossible to own in daily changes leagues with an IR spot

57m

avatar

hegmanu 

What do you make of Harrell's declining minutes?

57m

avatar

SmanSports 

I wrote about Payne in this week's waiver wire article. Excellent steals option. You could do worse.

58m

avatar

SmanSports 

Iggy, Livingston, Swaggy will also see extra playing time. Good streaming options, but that's about it

58m

avatar

zahmed 

What to do about Reke if he's sitting on the IL spot atm?

58m

avatar

Will78 

Should we get an update on Ingram Thursday? I am holding him for now but it can change tmr I guess

58m

avatar

SmanSports 

Maybe re Howard, but Kaminsky is basically just points and threes with some rebounds. Now isn't the time to be stashing players anyway.

58m

avatar

cloudstah 

I was feeling pretty savvy for grabbing kawhi off the wire two weeks ago, now not so much. Anything promising about him playing this Saturday possibly?

59m

avatar

Devonator 

What are your thoughts on Cameron Payne?

59m

avatar

ThreeDiceCeelo 

any moves that needs to be made after klay's injury?

59m

avatar

DanL15000 

Regarding Howard with the Hornets.  Fewer minutes when out of playoff hunt?  Will this benefit Kaminski?

 

1.0h

avatar

SmanSports 

Gordon is listed as questionable for tonight. I would be surprised if he plays.

1.0h

avatar

SmanSports 

Any adds/drop come down to what stats you need and who you will get games out of

1.0h

avatar

cloudstah 

Anything on Aaron Gordon for tonight? If he can't go he'll only have one more game this week for me. May have to think about dropping?

1.0h

avatar

zahmed 

Is Hezonja worth keeping for the playoffs? He hasn't really produced this time w/ Gordon & Fournier out. FA options include Hill, P. Gasol, K. Anderson, Danny Green...

1.0h

avatar

SmanSports 

The offer different things. Isaac is mainly steals and blocks at this point, Hezonja is rebounds, steals and threes. Depends what you need

1.0h

avatar

Devonator 

Would you drop Noel or Skal for Muscala?

1.0h

avatar

DanL15000 

If I recall Orlando passed on Hezonja's option.  Is Hezonja or Issac the way to go?

 

1.1h

avatar

SmanSports 

Yes you can Dan

DanL15000 

First timer.  Do we just ask questions?
