Friday's Pickups of the Day

Chandler Parsons and Dwyane Wade went down on Thursday night. I'm just guessing here, but it sounds like Parsons is more likely to miss games going forward. They both play on Saturday, so there's no incentive to add extra games on different days. Taking that into account, here's some pickups from tonight.

 

Also, I can't suggest enough that every owner should be looking at their schedule. You have to know the days you need games and the days you're full. If you're adding someone you're not going to use, it's pointless (well, unless you're adding them as rest insurance).

 

Brandan Wright - He's a must-own player.

 

Marcus Morris - He can't make shots, but he does a lot of other stuff.

 

David Lee - The Warriors have a B2B on Saturday and Sunday.

 

T.J. Warren - Hornacek likes him the most and he should be close to 30 minutes going forward.

 

Mario Chalmers - Wade should be OK.

 

Al-Farouq Aminu - If you need steals and blocks, Amino Acid is essential. Get it? Not a science crowd here, huh?

 

Tyler Johnson - He should be in the rotation regardless.

 

Iman Shumpert - Just keep an eye on him when LeBron sits.

 

Marreese Speights - The usage hasn't really jumped like it normally does.

 

James Ennis - He only plays forward.

 

Richard Jefferson - He'll likely start on Saturday, but the upside is too low.

 

Jerel McNeal - Son of Jerel! Kneel before Zod! Nevermind.
