    Come on. Everyone knew a suspension was coming, so you can’t call this a legit late scratch.

    This very website expected him to play and had him projected for over 30 FP. He was in lineuphq. No one knew if he was playing last night or not until the league office announced the suspension.

    Winslow was:

    3.3% owned in DK’s Starting 5
    1.9% owned in FD’s Shot

    Winslow Lineups Cashed:

    5.4% on DK
    11% on FD

    I was part of the 5% that cashed. Was shocked to see it this morning.

    How do you find out how many Winslow lineups cashed on FD without CSV of entries?

    Wiggins went through shootaround Monday morning without any limitations and will play in tonight’s matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers

    so deliberate reports saying he will play before the scratch

    Pretty sure it said, “Wiggins is expected to play barring setback in warmups.” I’m guessing he had a setback?

    7:01. one minute after lock, not playing. Late scratch. I appreciate that yisman is dedicating time to keeping this thread going, and do not understand the arguments people make when he clearly lists the time for the scratch. Thanks Yis!

    Wiggins was absolutely a late scratch. But anyone following the news yesterday realized he was at risk last night. Anyone who played him took that risk and it just didn’t work out.

  • JustDFSin

    I don’t know if it’s the coach’s or the b eat writers ,but their seems to be a lot of bad info coming out thru these sports news feeds. It was said Gordon would be suspended for a quarter. Low and behold he starts. Ian Clark was supposed to start,and he winds up being the 3rd pg off the bench.Kris dun n missed workaround but was expected to be in the starting lineup ,and he ends up not playing..

  • yisman

    I tweeted that there was one in each sport last night.

    NHL: Reporter tweeted that Jason Zucker was listed as a scratch. He played and cost me my HTH. https://sports.yahoo.com/dailyfantasy/contest/3442988/70221021/70221817

    NBA: Wiggins reported as playing. Wondering what his ownership was on Fanduel. I’m sure very low anyway.

    NFL: Gordon was supposed to be suspended multiple series (basically the first quarter). Did not happen and the false report served to drive down ownership.

  • KindGuy

    I’ve learned something very important and it is that these beat writers only report what they’re told to report by the teams. If they notice a player isn’t warming up or getting ready on the court, like Steven Adams the other day, they won’t tweet anything out unless the team tells them too. This makes things very difficult and sets people up for super late scratches. Another example is a few years ago when Derrick Rose wasn’t even with the Knicks and yet nobody tweeted anything out. He wasn’t even in the same state as he flew that same day back home! Beat writers can’t tweet out their own observations basically, which is why their twitter feeds mostly mirror each other.

  • yisman

    More recently than Rose, Greg Monroe was not with the Suns last season for a game (as they were letting him go) and no one reported it until it was too late.

    As with Rose, he was not at the arena and no one tweeted it out.

  • JustDFSin

    Here is another example. Player X missed shootaround and is not at the arena ,but he is expected to play. Player never plays.

    Lol I went back and found this series of tweets. Understandably, people were upset at the lack of reporting regarding Monroe’s whereabouts.

    I remember it because I was playing that night (as I was when the Rose thing happened with the Knicks). IIRC, Monroe was a popular play because it was his turn to start in that weird situation they had in Phoenix.

    This tweet on point:
