I am sure I am not the only one that is starting to have injury issues (long term or short term). Probably caused some havoc last week in some cases for others, but I was able to largely avoid it except for Tatum missing a game and Derozan missing a game.

I have Tatum and Markanen out for Covid and Bogdanavic out for an extended period. And Derozan is taking time away to spend time with his very ill father.

Yeah, I'm pleased I did as well as I did against you. The one time lineup lock is funky. I thought I saw with plenty of time that Durant would be out, so I put him on the IL, added Hunter, and thought I plugged him in at forward, but instead I just had a roster gap all week. So that was a bummer.

Not sure what happened with Hunter either.

It's possible that the following happens:
1) You can change your lineup on Monday up to the first game.
2) Any roster additions themselves to be eligible I think need to be added before midnight on Sunday.

You would think you could do it up to the first game that week but it does not appear to be the case.

I don't necessarily hate the weekly vs daily lineup thing. With the injuries due to "Covid" this year, it brings the randomness to our league like real life I suppose.

you are almost better going with teams who play only 3 teams anyway, a lot of 'stars' seem to be sitting out 1 end of the back to back.

so there is really no sense in stacking your lineup based on games.

just ride the best horses and hope covid or a real injury doesnt pop up early in the week.

I only rotate or change my 7-10 guys . Thr core stays in no matter how many games.

Kyrie Irving...really great time to go AWOL...just as KAT comes back. This season is going to be a fantasy mess.

I really thought Jamal Murray was going to blow up after what he did in the bubble and it just hasn’t happened.

Did you dress Kyrie this week, or was it just too uncertain to play him?

I did not. I heard from a friend who knows a Nets staffer that Kyrie isn’t coming back anytime soon, and even wanted to sit out this season due to Covid concerns.
This is interesting, but not totally surprising. And, even tho I think Kyrie is kinda nuts, I'm not going to dig anyone for worrying about COVID.

I knew a guy that was family with Deron Williams (and not some distant cousin that had one photo with him, would be over at holidays and stuff)... and for all the talk about Deron with injuries and stuff, he actually just lost interest in playing in the NBA. The drive just went away. Not saying this is what's happening with Kyrie, but things can turn pretty fast.

I am sure others have injury / Postponement nightmares this week that are perhaps just as bad or worse... but here is mine right now:

Trey Young - Game Postponed
Mike Conley - Game Postponed
Rudy Gobert - Game Postponed
Zach Lavine - Game Postponed
Demar Derozan - Leave of Absence (Illness of Father)

Injured before this week
Jayson Tatum
Lauri Markanen
