- Amare Stoudemire is officially out 2-4 weeks. He will not be able to help your fantasy basketball team any more this season. He is to be dropped immediately if you have not done so already. Let us know who is available in your league if you need to replace Stat.
- Jerryd Bayless will miss the remainder of the season with a Torn Oblique. It really hurts me that I still have to say this but Goran Dragic is still just 68% owned. He is a MUST ADD and should be on your roster if he is available.
3/26 - Nikola Pekovic is eyeing a Friday return. If this does not happen, he could choose surgery, most likely ending his season. It is time to officially move on from the big guy as every game counts from here on out, with most playoffs starting this week or next. Over the past 2 weeks, Zaza Pachulia (38% owned Yahoo) and Derrick Favors (33%) have earned more fantasy points than Amare, Marc Gasol and Boozer. Jason Thompson (45%) is the only other player less than 75% owned that ranks in the top 25 over the past 2 weeks.
Chris Paul (98) and Kyrie Irving (83) were the only PGs to have more fantasy points this past week than Goran Dragic (79). If you are looking for a push before your playoffs start, Dragic is a must add. He is still just 63% owned in Yahoo leagues so there is a chance he is still available.
Teams Playing 5 Games
Atlanta Hawks (29-20) - Currently the 6 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Hawks will face 5 teams currently sitting in a playoff position. They start off with a home game against the Utah Jazz , whose 6 game win streak has propelled them into the 7 seed in the West. After a night off they have a road game in Milwaukee against the Bucks followed by a home game against the Bulls. Those two teams are a combined 15-5 in their last 10 games. After a night off the Knicks come to town before Atlanta travels to Philly to take on the 76ers. The Hawks have a very tough week ahead of the, but Joe Johnson and Josh Smith have been playing above their seasons stats over the last 5 games with Johnson scoring 21 a night and Smith averaging a double-double (19/11). A key to this week and the rest of the season will be Jeff Teague finding his 3 point stroke again. He has made just 3 in the last 5 games and just 7 of his 35 attempts in the month of March.
