Fantasy Basketball Playoffs - Warriors Play Just Twice

Steph Curry Fantasy Basketball Playoffs
As the fantasy basketball playoffs continue, so do the injuries!  Before the start of last week, the Cleveland Cavaliers lost Kyrie Irving, the Minnesota Timberwolves lost Nikola Pekovic, and even the King himself, LeBron James missed a game.  Russell Westbrook even left OKC's matchup with the Raptors after injuring his knee again.  Now there is news that J.J. Hickson has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season for the Denver Nuggets.  While these injuries can destroy one roster, they create new options for fantasy owners like myself, who will advance in the playoffs thanks to the addition of Matthew Dellavedova and Gorgui Dieng.

Dellavedova scored 30 points over the Cavs 3 games and added 26 assists and 13 rebounds!  He also knocked down 5 of his 11 3s!  Gorgui Dieng has 2 double doubles totaling 32 points and 33 rebounds,  Both players get one more days worth of action today when the Cavs play the New York Knicks and the T'Wolves play the Phoenix Suns.

The Denver Nuggets will play today without Hickson and it will help clear up who will pick up the extra minutes.  It could be Timofey Mozgov, Anthony Randolph or Darrell Arthur.

The Golden State Warriors will play just twice this week, and not until Friday and Sunday against Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks.  It will be nice to get Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and CO. at the end of the week to give your squad a big boost, but you will have to avoid adding Harrison Barnes and Jordan Crawford until the end of the week.  Don't forget, Andre Iguodala is still out with knee tendenitis and might not play this weekend, even with the long break!
