Fantasy Basketball Daily News (12/21/09)

Thanks a lot Gerald Wallace.  A headache?  Didn’t Wallace and Jackson recently making fun of Tyson Chandler for having no ‘heart’.  Come on Gerald.  It was one of those weeks when a single player could have made all the difference between a win and a loss, and I got the loss.   Why does it always seem that it’s the guy on my team who doesn’t play rather than one of my opponents players?  Oh well, such is fantasy basketball.

  • Chris Paul is still dealing with some ankle soreness that is limiting his play.  Still, 90%, Paul is better than most.
  • Stephen Jackson left Sunday’s game in the third quarter with back spasms and didn’t return. 
  • Gerald Wallace didn’t play because he had a headache. 
  • Chase Budinger will miss 2-3 weeks with a sprained right ankle.
  • Tyrus Thomas practiced and should be back soon.  Check you wire to see if he’s still out there.
  • Dirk Nowitzki missed Sunday with his elbow cut.  Tim Thomas got the start and looked pretty good going for 22 points.  Nowitzki’s next start on Tuesday is still questionable, so check his gametime status.
  • Dwyane Wade’s back didn’t seem to bother him against Portland.  He was even doing pullups on the rim before the game.
  • Tony Allen is getting better and might be worth a pickup if you need some depth.  He got 25 minutes against Minnesota, scoring 15 points.
  • Chauncey Billups missed Sunday with his groin problem, Ty Lawson got the start.  No word on when Billups might return, so keep him benched.
  • Keep an eye on the C.J. Miles / Wes Matthews position battle in Utah.  Miles may get the starting job back soon.  Matthews has a been a cheap salary cap game option over the last month, but that may end shortly.
  • Jameer Nelson will return for Orlando, he will come off the bench on Monday.
  • Ankle injuries have slowed Will Bynum to the point where he is unplayable in daily cash games.
  • Charlie Villanueva is still slowed by a right heel injury.
