Skal Labissiere has been ruled out of Sunday’s game with a left hip contusion.
Labissiere took a hard fall last night and didn’t finish the game. It’s a poorly-timed injury, as Skal was starting to get rolling with top-90 value over the last two weeks in 28.5 mpg. With him out tomorrow (and possibly Monday on a B2B situation), Kosta Koufos, Zach Randolph and Justin Jackson will handle most of the work in the frontcourt. Koufos is the add for boards, Randolph is the guy for points and Jackson is the play if you’re feeling incredibly lucky. Of course, that’s assuming Willie Cauley-Stein doesn’t return from his back injury over the next two days. If WCS can play, he’s the immediate top choice here even if he’s playing with a minutes restriction. Iman Shumpert has also been ruled out for Sunday, not that that’s news.
