Week 21 is here in the NBA and we are getting right into the dirty dirty. We’ve reached a point in the season where stashing is likely no longer an option and you’ll need warm bodies to squeeze every ounce of fantasy production out on the box score.
As we wind down the season bodies are breaking down, shutdown candidates are emerging and veterans are resting in back-to-backs. Playoff-clinching teams are sitting players.
It’s been a relatively calm season for injuries but that all changed in a hurry as the NBA saw season-ending injuries to a myriad of key players. The injuries come at a terrible time for fantasy owners with the playoffs underway or looming. We at Hoop-Ball send our deepest condolences for your loss and are here to help you capitalize and make your squad great again!

Point Guards: Norris Cole (back, day-to-day), Patrick Beverley, D.J. Augustin
Shooting Guards: Gary Harris, Devin Booker
Small Forwards: Mirza Teletovic, Matt Barnes
Power Forwards: Jerami Grant (concussion, day-to-day)
Centers: Alex Len, Nikola Jokic
