    This is it until Tuesday…

    Sixers are doing a rehearsal

    https://twitter.com/rich_hofmann/status/1184525377332563975?s=20

    LBJ and AD are out

    https://twitter.com/MMoreno1015/status/1184929718379745280?s=20

    That’s all I got. We already know Zion is out and GSW is supposed to be doing a dress rehearsal tonight.

  • Last day of preseason and I don’t remember either Toronto or Brooklyn being on a slate? I’m sure maybe I just missed one and two early on, but I feel like I have no idea how they run their units.

    Julius Randle seems like he could be vengeful, so he was the first name I looked at. With no Zion, maybe Kenrich? Barrett keeps getting 30 minutes. That might be a good game stack with Embiid/Tobias perhaps?

    No zion, melli will be his replacement. He reminds me of Mirotic. You cant forget about harden and curry

    Last couple days have been rough. It’s a difficult puzzle for sure.

    Well since I’m sure DK will have a 25k crown achievement for NBA I’ll be back to donate …man I suck at NBA :)

    Nothing confirmed yet, but I’d suspect Miami rests some starters after yesterday’s “dress rehearsal”. If that’s the case then I have interest in Nunn and Herro. But I’d also need some confirmation on Herro’s minutes since he played 26 mins yesterday.

  • Toadthegreat

    Any news or info on GSW? Wondering if Curry is going to go for 30+ mins in this their last game. With now Lebron or Brow it could end up being a blowout also, so there’s that.

    Warriors tentative plan is to play Friday’s preseason finale at home vs Lakers as a dress rehearsal — 30-35 minutes for Curry, Draymond, Russell, regular rotation around them.

  • monarch

    Reading that DSJ will play quite a bit. Also like SGA cousin in the garden with no Zion

    Lmao

    I got lucky to get to just below break even yesterday, as I was loaded up on Bulls starters as they were supposed to be a “lock” for 30 minutes. That’s why I only throw change at preseason lineups. Although I had 10 yesterday. Saving grace, was that I was way over the field on Giannis and Jerome Robinson, who surprisingly was completely unowned.

    I think you can play the Knicks once you hear the starting lineups. I don’t think they’ll be that bad this year, and I think fizz wants to get his top unit as much PT as possible.

    Although he sucks, I’m gonna give DSJ another try for the reduced price of 4400. He would have seen at least 24 minutes last game, if he didn’t get into foul trouble.

    i am glad i didn’t mess with pre season this year. was shocked at the size of some of the tournys tho tbh

  • Wooden_Bones

    What’s everyone’s read on Kyrie tonight? He’s played a total of one minute this preseason and will get some run tonight, but I can’t figure out what to expect.

    Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports Irving will play “significant” minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

    And then there’s this quote: “He’ll play Friday, we’ll see if it’s his normal minutes,” Atkinson said following practice Wednesday. “Obviously, he’s missed some time so we’ll see about that.”

    I’m guessing based on what I’ve heard it will be in the 20-25 minute range. Probably will be low owned, which is nice, but hard to imagine him doing any better than the other higher priced guards. Not to mention the potential value in a Dinwiddie, DSJ, or Morant. This is coming from a DK pricing perspective.

    They have only been on showdown slates if I remember correctly. Looks like all the main pieces are healthy for both teams. Assuming this is a dress rehearsal for both teams from the Toronto side main target should be Siakam followed by Lowry. You can consider OG, Powell, VanVleet, Ibaka, Gasol but there is probably better options. Brooklyn side main targets should be Kyrie, Levert, Dinwiddie. Everyone else is just okay. I played Musa almost everyone showdown but he is probably to thin on a 6 gamer.

  • JSteele

    Where do we stand on Dwight Howard tonight? Do we think he gets some run like the last time LBJ and AD were out? Or do they limit him as well?

  • queensfinest

    zion is out multiple weeks. o boy. not good

    Yeah, this is along my current line of thinking. I’m having no problem finding guards I like in all price ranges, but I am having trouble finding lower end forwards.

    I’m guessing this’ll be like most other preseason lineups where I end up blowing it up and rearranging everything 30 mins before lock. (I’m SO ready for regular season)

    He is probably too expensive on DK for me but he is still pretty cheap on FD
