The injury error has injured a number of the best NBA players, from Giannis AntikonmoAnd Kevin Durant And Anthony Davis to Zion WilliamsonAnd Cities Carl Anthony And Devin Booker. And this is not even the full list!
So what are the most concerning injuries for the remainder of the fantasy basketball season?
Here are Andre Snellings, Eric Karabelle, Eric Moody, Jim McCormick and Steve Alexander for discussion.
Davis is more injured for me. First of all, he has a long history of injuries and has not played since December 16th. Now the Lakers are hoping they can play again before the All-Star break. Talking of him playing in all 82 matches this season is a distant memory and LeBron James Maybe he’s just hoping to get 40 games from his talented teammate. We’re currently at 25 this season and holding it, and if our AD over/under matches are currently capped at 50, I’m taking less than that. – Alexander
Lakers say Davis may be back on the court before the All-Star break. Wonderful! so what? I don’t mean to be a skeptic, but Davis has a stress fracture in his right foot and a long history of missing games for various reasons. And this is a good reason. OK, so he’ll be back soon. When will he get hurt again? He played 76 games combined in the past two seasons. Nobody discusses his greatness on the field. These are some of the best numbers of his career, albeit in just 25 games. It’s hard to see him make 50 appearances this season, unfortunately which one is pending. – Karabelle
when it comes to b Chris PaulI think it’s right to be concerned about his current hip problem given his age and the statistical decline prior to this latest injury. However, the main concern for me – as for many others – is M. He is arguably the best fantasy option for all of these injured stars this season with his return to elite production on both sides of the floor. Kevin Durant’s situation isn’t perfect, but his team competes in a tough conference and there isn’t as much mystery with his MCL injury as there are vague reports about Davis breaking his foot. It’s the combination of that foot injury and the context of his team being in a tight, talented conference that adds to the anxiety. If we get to late March and Davis is still dealing with an upset for a team that might be out of the picture several games, he could see him in the fantasy playoffs in streetwear. – McCormick
For me, it’s a KD, and he’s currently suffering from a sprained MCL. My biggest concern is that this is the same injury that derailed his season and net last year. Last year Durant sprained his left MCL, and this year it’s his right. As soon as possible, he won’t be back until early February. With Durant in the midst of an amazing fantasy season, the timing isn’t ideal for managers. As a team with championship aspirations, the Nets are unlikely to rush him, and Durant could be limited to a limited number of minutes upon his return. Because of Durant’s average stance, the nature of his injury, his age, and the timing, I’m concerned. – Moody
I’m very worried about the Milwaukee duo, because both injuries seem to linger. Middleton missed the first month and a half of the season, returned for two weeks, and missed the last month. Antetokounmpo has mainly played through his injury, but it’s clearly taken a toll on him in his last three games as he averages just 12.7 PPG at 34.4 FG%, and he’s sat out each of the final four while being listed as a questionable lead. Injury uncertainty can lead to longer-than-expected absences, and in the Bucks’ case, they’re the oldest team in the league with a championship for just two seasons, so they don’t seem to care as much about the regular season as they do about getting healthy into the playoffs. This philosophy may also lead them to err on the side of caution and possibly rest their stars too much to affect the values of their fantasy collars. – snoring
