Daily Fantasy Basketball Injuries and Updates for 2/26/16
In daily fantasy basketball, every edge matters.
One of the easiest ways to find an edge is to understand what happens to a team when injuries occur. Who stands to benefit? Who might struggle as a result? That's all vital information during the lineup-building process.
What should you know about tonight's slate of games? Let's break it down.
As always, you should make sure to double-check our NBA Player News page before finalizing your lineup.
C.J. Miles is out while Rodney Stuckey is expected to play tonight for the Indiana Pacers. Stuckey's return to the lineup is more bad news to both George Hill and Monta Ellis than good news for Stuckey. I am still hesitant on Stuckey because it is always a question of how much he will actually play in his return after missing a month and a half.
Paul Pierce will sit out due to personal reasons. "The Truth" sees minutes in the high teens every game, and those should go to the likes of Jeff Green and Wesley Johnson. Also the Los Angeles Clippers play the fast-paced Sacramento Kings. A lot of points will likely be scored tonight, and this news adds a slight value increase to both Green and Johnson.
The To-Be-Determined List
Rajon Rondo is listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Clippers. Whenever Rondo can't go, the daily fantasy world is all over Darren Collison -- and rightfully so. Collison will see a high number of minutes if Rondo is sidelined and has a great opportunity to provide great value on his relatively inexpensive price tags.
Derrick Rose is questionable with a hamstring issue. At this point, Rose may be trying to be on the "To-Be-Determined" list on purpose. He was late scratch on Wednesday and has carried his questionable tag with him to tonight's game. Apparently, Rose was limited during shootaround this morning. If Rose does in fact sit out, E'Twaun Moore will see an increase in value.
