• Jrue Holiday (eye) will miss the rest of the season and Ryan Anderson is seeking a second opinion on what the team is calling a sports hernia.

    Holiday’s injury is a right inferior orbital wall fracture.  Anderson is seeking a second opinion “later this week” and that makes him doubtful in our minds that he will push back for the season’s final six games starting next week.  Alonzo Gee was also ruled out with a complete rupture of the right proximal rectus femoris, and Norris Cole is day-to-day with his back injury.  In order, the guys you want on your squad are Toney Douglas, Luke Babbitt, Jordan Hamilton, Tim Frazier, Cole and Dante Cunningham. 

    Douglas and Babbitt are must-own players in 12-team leagues and Hamilton is a speculative add for his potential upside as a versatile producer.  Frazier is a safer play than Hamilton but his upside is lower due to stat set and talent deficiencies.  Cole would be at the top of this list if we simply knew he was playing again this season and Cunningham is the low-end plodder of the bunch, ready to eke his way to value in 14-team leagues.
