Fantasy Basketball Daily News (10/29/09)

Only two games on the schedule tonight, but both are on TV in the TNT Doubleheader.  San Antonio is at Chicago at 8:00 EST while Denver travels to Portland for the 10:30 EST nightcap.   I dropped Anderson Varejao and picked up Marreese Speights in the GiveMeTheRock.com keeper league.  I’m gambling on Speights for next year, and I already have Brand, Z. Randolph and J. O’Neal at center so Varejao wasn’t an important piece of the team.   On to the fantasy news:

  • Daily Fantasy Recap from Four Point Play.
  • Matt Buser’s Yahoo Roto Arcade fantasy report.
  • Jarvis Hayes injured a hamstring in Wednesday’s game which give Terrence Williams or Chris Douglas-Roberts enough time to steal the starting SF spot permanently.
  • It might take Amare Stoudemire awhile to get back in basketball shape, so be patient with him.  If you can work a buy low trade for him, then do it.  Good article from BrightSideoftheSun.com on Stoudemire’s recovery.  J. A. Adande also has a good article on Amare and his road back to being an elite player.  [ESPN TrueHoop]
