This is becoming an issue across the board! The NBA who takes money from dfs companies as sponsors needs to work with dfs as a business negotiation in regards to injury/rest/sickness time deadlines! Much like the NFL does an hour and a half before kickoff! The NBAshould have a half hour drop dead deadline to report in or out! Last night is a prime example of this! Embiid/Drummond news 5 min before lock shifted all the slates in a dramatic way! Roster builds were basically deemed worthless for those who spent hours putting this slate together.
The other solution is opening late swaps for only those players effected? Taking zeros is hurting the industry! It just seems the current NBA injury reports are unorganized inconsistent and unreliable! Let’s stop ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room! If the NBA thinks that the higher percentage of people who watch or attend NBA games is just for entertainment purposes only are just kidding themselves! Many have skin in the game and would hope this program is fixed! The current reporting system is a Neanderthal approach and people are sick of it!
