Tempted to throw out a super low offer like Brogdon or Tyreke for CP3. My playoffs start right at the 8-week mark. Are CP3's restrictions gonna hurt him too much to have for playoffs? I'm worried it'll be a waste of a roster spot
#62090 -- The 6-8 week time period puts CP3 back in action pretty much right with the start of your playoffs, so I'd keep him. I'd put CP3 in the IR and just hope Kristaps is back sooner than later. Since you're in a good spot in the standings, I would try to just weather the storm for now. I wouldn't drop CP3. If you're concerned about keeping him, I'd trade him. Someone will be intrigued by the prospect of having him in your league's playoffs.
Osteo21 -- They should both be picked up in most standard leagues. Rivers should provide slightly more threes and points, while Felton offers slightly more rebounds, assists, and steals. Until Blake Griffin returns in a couple weeks, both Rivers and Felton are worth rostering, but it's kind of a toss up as to who ends up with the better production. Felton will likely get more counting stats than Rivers, but Felton's usually poor FG% might turn some managers away from him.
#kylemckeown16 tied for 2nd with an 8 game lead over the 4th spot.
@kyle, who do you like more with cp out, felton or rivers?
#62090 -- Where are you in the standings?

CP3 owner with 1 IR Spot, also own Porzingis currently also in and out of IR. My leagues playoffs start March 13th. (Up) to hold CP3, (Down) to drop to waivers?
Also wrong side of thirty and different hand injuries in the past.
6-8 weeks standard for this type of injury/surgery. Wouldn't expect him back before then.
Anyone have any ideas on if CP's injury is the type to keep him out full length or any chance he comes back ahead of schedule? Any known NBA history (besides current JR Smith) on injury timetable?

Rivers (up) or terrence ross (down)

back for my finals if thats right so I'm not as worried

buy low on paul? no IR spot, only 3 bench spots but i am in first place

damn, josh with the premonition

Who is the primary beneficiary here? Felton (up) or Rivers (down)?
67% (3) agree 
Yeah. Sucks as a Clipper fan but watching him walk off the court kicking chairs and shaking his head to the trainer was enough to make me pull the trigger.
Agreed. I was certainly wrong in assuming it wasn't going to be serious
89% (9) agree 
That Chris Paul for John Wall trade is looking pretty good now...
100% (3) agree 
#15147 -- Rivers looks like he will stay in the starting lineup until Blake Griffin returns, regardless of whether Chris Paul is playing or not. Rivers should be rostered in most 10 and 12-team standard leagues right now. Felton will get big minutes if Paul is out, so he'll be a stream option then, too.
100% (1) agree 
So is Rivers the pickup or Felton, if CP3 misses time?
100% (1) agree 
X-rays negative, but that only tells us he didn't break a bone. It could turn out to something like JR Smith's injury, with torn ligaments. He is not out of the woods yet.
100% (1) agree 
It was the reaction that got me. Long time clipper fan. The playoffs last year still haunt me. He immediately walked off the court cussing and kicking things. A bad sprain could be a long recovery too especially since they are dinged up already. Figured Wall is about 95 cents on the dollar
0% (1) agree 
X rays already came back negative
25% (4) agree 
Panic set in after cp3 kicked the chair and left. Traded him for wall. Did I blow it? Or was it worth taking a slight discount. His reaction was the same as when he broke his hand in the playoffs so it made me nervous.
100% (1) agree 
I still think this is relatively minor. Doc said Paul would be playing if these were playoff games and they just want him at 100%. I don't think he's lying
it was considered minor earlier but now \ it become a bigger problem. and I really hate that coach gives totally wrong information. He wad doubtful to plan Wed but played and was told to play Friday but out. if you don't know just say it.. it's ok but please don't lie.
100% (1) agree 
Considering he was testing it in the lockeroom to try to play, I am hopeful it isn't too serious. Seemed like he would have tried to play if the game was a little closer

Wow I literally just traded for him.. Hopefully it doesn't linger?

Scott -- Even though it's a dynasty, I'd still take CP3 over Kyrie. The extra steals and assists from CP3 are too awesome to pass up in that trade, imo.
Dynasty L (30 tm/h2h) question: Kyrie or CP3, have a young team with some vets that's currently stacking up as a .500 team. I currently have Kyrie but CP3 seems attainable for him.
100% (1) agree 
Joey_B -- I agree completely with what @away0921 and @TreborG said.
100% (1) agree 
I agree with the previous comment. Would say that Paul will likely be considerably better than Embiid for at least one more season too, so it would for sure be a build for the future type deal. Me personally would probably keep Paul for now until we're more certain about Embiid's health. Will he be able to keep it up for a full season or will his injuries continue to bother him.
100% (1) agree 
@Joey_B it's not a crazy question, it depends on your circumstances. If you are in contention to win this year, than I absolutely would not trade CP3 for Embiid. If due to the rules of your league you'd realistically only be able to keep Embiid for 1 season, than i probably would make the deal either. But if you likely aren't competing for the title this year, and you would be able to keep Embiid for multiple seasons (assuming health of course), than I think it's a fine deal to make. I'd still try to get more out of the deal just because it never hurts to try, but I'd be ok dealing CP3 for Embiid in that scenario.
I hope this is not a crazy question, but it might be. Would you trade Chris Paul for Joel Embiid in a keeper league?
33% (3) agree 
Getting hurt in hyper intense playoff series when ur undermanned (kindly see Blake Griffins injury history) and operating at 250% is very different then knowing how to navigate an 82 game regular season. I've had Paul three years in a row now and while he's not an iron man like DeAndre hes not an auto red flag. The Clippers look angry as hell and this is looking like his best season. He's currently ranked 1 on Yahoo so if there ever was a time to trade him i Guess it would be now. But Ima just sit back and watch him single handedly win me assists and steals without hurting me in fg% or TOs. Talk about a #unicorn
I'll kindly suggest that you look in to CP3's injury history. Last year he broke his hand, it just so happened to be in April. The year prior was the first season in his 12 year career that he made it through a full 82 games. Prior to 2014/15 he's missed ample games during the fantasy season.
86% (7) agree 
You must be thinking of someone else...Chris Paul has missed 8 games total in the last two years...
14% (7) agree 
I would sell high, CP3 seems to bust a shoulder or knee just about every other season right around mid-point. Great time to cash in and get a great return on his value.
0% (1) agree 
I'll second this. I have CP3, Blake and JJ in a 16 team keeper and they are playing incredible team ball right now. CP3 on a per minute basis has easily been the top fantasy player, they're just blowing guys out so they all have less minutes. Chris looks absolutely dominant out there, in complete control.
100% (1) agree 
Gotta give some love to CP3. Dude has been unreal to start the year and the Clips are fun as hell to watch.
0% (1) agree 
Assuming Whiteside is already taken, who is the best player to pair with CP3 on the turnaround? 12 team league, 9 cat h2h
