    With the way GS ran Whiteside off the court, do we worry about either Taj or KAT losing minutes?

    I’m literally changing very little though today on all this news. Probably a two player swap out on each of the three LUs i’m rolling with. Just dropping KD and upgrading the 3k value plays basically for well balanced player with good floor/high upside. … So say tolliver out completely and more exposure to tatum… … less exposure to crawford and little more exposure to Klay… is what i’m thinking… straight swap KD for Butler.

    KAT never loses minutes unless he’s in a blowout, hurt, or in foul trouble (plus he’s perfectly capable of running with the warriors). taj maybe?

    Nooooo. Thibs is the coach. And these guys dont get gassed that easily. Only way minutes are down is if theres a blowout. I wouldn’t worry about the minutes if its all thats holding you back. and Taj will be on draymond alot tonight.

    No because KAT and Whiteside are two totally different centers. KAT is a good scorer and can shoot all the way out to 3. He’s very versatile on the offensive end. Whiteside doesn’t have much offensive game to speak of, Golden State is good about taking traditional centers who can’t score well out of the game. I’m not worried about KAT tonight.

    So pricing a bit “wonky” on FantasyDraft, but if you had to pick 2 from Whiteside ($13.3K), J. Johnson ($13K) or Butler ($12.7) who would it be?

    Wow that changes everything. Kyrie is gonna now be one of the highest owned players. Baynes will get some ownership even. Marcus Morris might even get some ownership even on a mins restriction. Brown/Tatum/Smart will see like 5-10 more mins.

    Gotta admit, I absolutely love when superstars92 is contributing to the forum. You always bring some great insight, much appreciated.

    I hope you are right and Kyrie is massively owned. It seems like this Celtics team isn’t designed to highlight one player. I see Tatum, Morris, Brown etc all gobbling up some usage. In cash, I think you could argue any of these guys. In tournaments, I see Kyrie as a complete fade as there are many different paths to a sub 45 dk pt game. Any thoughts on this?

    Going Lance and Morris as my value guys on FD

  • GTRandy27

    Can you play both Baynes and theis in your cash lineup? Will they both get at least 20 minutes in horford’s absence?

    Tyson Chandler now doubtful

    I got way too much Alex Len, I can easily see him getting into foul trouble early. Will sit on lineups until the Porzingis news comes out.

    Whiteside will crush len and then Dudley.

  • jglumsic

    With Porzingis questionable/out doesn’t that mean A Gordon, Vuc are even more in play

  • hangtime28

    Thanks everyone for the feedback on KAT and Taj. Tonight definitely is a multiple lineup night. There are so many ways to build a solid looking lineup lol.

    Jeez, that’d be a nightmare. I have lots of Len too.

    casspi is not playing close to 30 min even if he starts.

    Agree. If things start getting out of hand, I’d expect to see Iggy play some with the starters (but not for scoring). His assist to turnover ratio is fantastic. Might see more DWest than usual, too. All hands on deck.

    Vuc was always in play…he loves playing the knickerbockers.

    I’m always worried when I got way too much Len. He’s one of those guys that can either make or break your night, and he’s done both. He just seems to be fitting so nicely into my lineups. I’m going to have to make sure to have the right amount of Len.
