    zion is out multiple weeks. o boy. not good

    Well, I guess we’re not getting those crowns next Tuesday unless Siakam manages to score -1 points or worse!

    Sucks for Zion though. Hope he’s back quickly.

    I somehow cashed all my lineups last night, but getting 3rd in that contest and cashing 3.60 was the most satisfying lol

    Houston game is in Miami today.

    Do we think they rest Harden and Westbrook since they did a dress rehearsal last time?

    “I think it gets us up to speed on how fast they can play and how good they are and how precise,” D’Antoni said of the Spurs and Heat.

    “It helps us measure where we are and (Wednesday) night we were not even close to where we need to be. We have another opportunity Friday to get better.”

    It sounds like I will have all the Harden

  • JSteele

    Ugh but I want all the Curry and all the Embiid

    That was a pretty ugly dress rehearsal last game. Outside of Harden, there wasn’t much for HOU to be happy with that game. Westbrook got into foul trouble early and committed 8 turnovers. I wouldn’t be surprised if they run tonight as a dress rehearsal do-over. But as we do every day in preseason, we’ll have to wait for the news.

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

    Preseason has been kind so far. I don’t think a lot of the competition does the research to see who is playing or not.

  • JSteele

    preseason is definitely easier to cash if you do your research. Honestly just being on this thread is usually enough to make a decent lineup.

  • monarch

    It’s because the pricing is soft. You just need eight players who are going to be on the court 25+ minutes and the information is available. It’s easy tonight to get Harden+Embiid and that’s generally not the case in the regular season.

    With that said…the tournaments in the preseason are terrible and practically require a top 5-10 finish to justify playing heavy volume

    I think I made more money this preseason, than all of last season.

  • tmarohl

    I just saw that Golden State is waiving McKinnie to make room for Chriss.

    No, MDA does not believe in resting players.

  • JSteele

    I found a way to make Harden, Curry and Embiid fit.

    So has everyone else, and it is not even hard.

    @Pandamonious said...

    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.

    Morant is cheap

    Ben Simmons is out. Raul Neto questionable.

    Does that throw a wrench into the dress rehearsal?

    Ben Simmons is OUT tonight with lower back tightness, which team says is precautionary. If it were a regular season game, it’s my understanding he would play.

    Not sure. Might keep the game closer at least.
