Thursday's Pickups of the Day

Welp, we probably had two season-ending injuries on Wednesday. Wilson Chandler is out for the year for sure, and Meyers Leonard suffered a complete dislocation of his shoulder, which usually means he's out for the year.

 

Also, this was my favorite play all season

 

 

Terrence Jones - He's back, but for how long? Stay healthy, TJ.

 

Jared Sullinger - He could fall apart, but he's hot. 

 

Marcus Smart - He's back, so pick him up.

 

T.J. McConnell - He had 13 assists. The 76ers won't be rushing Tony Wroten or Kendall Marshall back.

 

Stanley Johnson - 27 minutes and he's been right around 26 since SVG said he'd change his rotation four games ago.

 

Aaron Gordon - He started the second half for Victor Oladipo, but didn't have a great game with four points and five boards.

 

Ish Smith - He should have another month of value. Two awesome games in a row.

 

D'Angelo Russell - He played 31 minutes and the Lakers are horrible. They might tank for their top-three pick.

 

Arron Affalo - I wouldn't pick him up in all leagues or even if you like all the players on your roster. He doesn't have a big upside on his new team.

 

Andre Iguodala - Hot in his last three, but the Warriors won't go small every game, right?

 

Jerami Grant - Lots of Jerami/Jeremy coming here. Grant had his first double-double and is playing well right now.

 

Jeremy Lamb - I just can't add him. Go for it if you want.

 

Jeremy Lin - Revenge game? He didn't get minutes next to Kemba, so that's a negative bigger than his 17-point game.

 

Bojan Bogdanovic - He started the second half and scored 22 points, but we gotta see him do it again.

 

Gary Harris - The Nuggets are playing weill, so that's kind of bad for Harris' long-term outlook this season.

 

Austin Rivers - He's playing well and his dad likes him. J.J. Redick (back) looks like he'll be out.

 

Jamal Crawford - Even with J.J. likely out, Crawford has been kind of bad.

 

Isaiah Canaan - He definitely is a shooting guard. He's worth a look in deep leagues now.

 

Noah Vonleh - He will be a headache. If you love upside and have garbage on your roster, give him a look.

 

Jordan Hill - Not a big upside player even with Myles Turner (hand) out.

 

Luke Babbitt - Silly Babbitt.

 

Moe Harkless - At least he has upside.

 

Gerald Henderson - Low upside. Boring add even with Meyers Leonard out.

 

Shabazz Napier - He might be the bigger winner sans Dipo.

 

James Johnson DeMarre Carroll (foot) should be back soon.

 

Nikola Jokic - A nice stash for his upside.

 

J.J. Hickson - I wouldn't add him. Give him a look in points leagues.

 

R.J. Hunter - 20 minutes? Avery Bradley shouldn't be out long, though.
