Friday's Pickups of the Day

The Blazers are going to miss LaMarcus Aldridge for the next 6-8 weeks. This is a tough blow, especially considering he is third in the NBA in field goal attempts per game. Basically, it's going to be a mess beyond the studs.


Plus, Nicolas Batum had a wrist injury. So what are the Blazers going to do? Well, I don't know and I'm not being lazy either. Here's a look at their lineups in the second half on Thursday:



Here's the pickups, but again I wouldn't advise adding most of these guys in standard leagues.


Enes Kanter - He's worth owning, but I'd try to trade him ASAP.

Ersan Ilyasova - Ghostface Ilya had a bad matchup tonight. I'd expect him to play more.


Dante Exum - His 15-point game is a total fluke, but he looked very good.


Tyler Zeller - Kelly Olynyk is going to miss time.


Chris Kaman - His minutes are safe now.


Brandon Bass - He looked awesome, but beware of a trade.


Patty Mills - He's been good and should get more chances to play off the bench.


Aaron Brooks - His minutes will drop once Mike Dunleavy is back.


Meyers Leonard - He should play in the mid-20s and does have some upside.


Joe Ingles - He's a sneaky add.


Dorell Wright - He'll play some three now.


Victor Claver  - Umm, sure?


Thomas Robinson - Truck!
