    Anyone going back to Carney when he is announced as the starter again?

    I wasted about $24 chasing that.

    The problem with playing Bamba on FD is you can’t play Embiid, and on DK you can’t play Embiid and Stewart.

    Are you playing Bamba over Stewart or Bamba over Embiid…

    While you also have Okeke who might be forced into a 40+ minute role here, who you can put at F on DK (if you’re like me and wanting to jam Giannis/Embiid/Stewart

    I’m with you on the build premise – I’m not budging off stewart, and if I pivot off Embiid it’s not to Bamba. But I really think one of Franks/Hall is gonna be the differentiator – I doubt they play okeke 40+ for no reason a few games removed from an injury in a meaningless game. Additionally… you think Okeke has 40 minutes of not fouling Zion in him?

    Anyone else think Zion’s rebound upside goes up with La Bamba pulling Adams/Hayes away from the rim?

    I’d trust Okeke who has never really been in foul trouble much (hasn’t had more than 2 fouls in a game since 3/19) over Hall or Franks as far as foul trouble.

    Not sure about the injury, but i see no signs of any kind of minutes concern with him. He’s played 33 minutes each of the last 2, I mean you really going to be scared of a few extra?

    I know PHO is a good defensive team, but Tatum is taking 20+ FGA tonight…

    I love Zion tonight. Magic will have little to no rim protection. Zion is 6th in fouls drawn per game, on a per 36 minute basis, Bamba averages almost 5 fouls per game plus rostering him at center on FD will be tough.

    My natural immune system already successfully fought off the virus, so I already have antibodies that will protect me for 17-18 years. In other words, I am in the control group.
    You, on the other hand, are in the experimental group.

    Wait…what? GG, no medical experts are claiming that surviving COVID gives you 17-18 years of immunity.

    That is magical thinking.

    No, and I might just be getting too cute. But I see more pathways to 30-35 for one of those guys than I do for 40+ for okeke. based on a couple factors (either bamba or okeke foul trouble, blowout), and there are legit studs vs. a moderate mid range today.

    Dario Saric (ankle) available to play Thursday. https://t.co/uxFLE9NVk9

    Kemba/DiVincenzo/Stewart/Embid will be in the winning FD LU. Mix and match your favorite plays in between those. YW and GL

    I’m with you on the Okeke minutes, not sure about the trust to deliver. He’s hit 6X on DK out of the last 10, of course it was the game he played the most minutes, 39 vs DEN.

    Cole Anthony seems like a decent deal on DK.

    Does saric hurt cam johnson value or is cam still a good play?

    I shouldn’t respond, because of my own rules but…

    No one knows anything long term obviously, but you have to look into memory T cells and SARS-CoV-1 if you want a complete answer. People who got the original SARS-CoV-1 are still immune to it 17 years later. Nothing magical about that, unless you consider our bodies magical, which you know hey, I do find mine quite magical.

  • captainwacky

    A strange and perhaps negligible point of value is that TBJ is out for the bulls and he’d been getting rotation minutes. Temple is cheap and valentine is free on DK, and both should get some better run… but kinda the same deal as the Suns value… it might not be good on a relative basis.

  • captainwacky

    Well of course you find your body magical; you’re a panda.

    Saric usually only plays backup C. Cam should still be good for 30+ mins

    Ayton should smash. Four out offense, one on one vs Tristan Thompson.

    Kinda what has me on Jabari Parker. They need to get Ayton off the floor.
