Many of you have seen the work we've done with the Hoop Ball Fantasy Draft Guide. For those of you that missed it, you can pick it up right here for $4.99 now that the season has started. Produced by FSWA Basketball Writer of the Year Aaron Bruski -- a team of up-and-coming writers joined forces to create a truly versatile and in-depth guide that pushed the boundaries of preseason content. The flagship rankings, The Bruski 150, has produced national championships in big money contests for its namesake, and consistently beat the competition for the last five seasons. Now, as Hoop Ball continues to grow and develop, the 2016-17 Hoop Ball Premium Membership is taking in-season paid packages to the next level.

What do fantasy owners need during the season?

INTERACTION

One-way conversations through articles, print and even chat can be valuable and they're not going away.  In fact, they're a big part of what the Hoop Ball Premium Membership is going to be. But as technology evolves and brings us closer together, it makes no sense that fantasy sites aren't bringing the conversation into your living room. Hoop Ball is going to change that with nightly, interactive video chats immediately after the games are done.  Our experts are going to take your questions and answer as many of them as we can on air. Your league can turn on a dime.  Or a turned ankle.  And there are too many caveats to be explored within the constraints of a blurb, article or podcast (of which there will be plenty). There needs to be back and forth, a narrative needs to be explored, and the backdrop of league scoring settings, formats and strategies deserve an interactive medium. It's immediate. It's impactful. It's better than everything else that's out there. 60 minutes later just isn't cutting it in competitive formats. Your schedule demands you get the most out of your content and in the most convenient way possible. We're going to cover season-long leagues, DFS and take a hard core look at waiver wire options and FAAB plays. And what about Monday lineup deadlines?  Our live lineups show on Mondays is going to take you right into tip-off so you can get the last second advice you need. While other sites do this as a side focus, we are putting our best and brightest on the paid channels, including Bruski, Mike Pandador, Jake Cousins, John Sill, the Dhanani Brothers (Riaz and Zain), Jordan Smith, Jon Schifferle, Danh Nguyen, Dan Besbris, Jake Fitzgibbon, Vince Miracle and Aaron Ahmad. We're adding to that list everyday so if you have the chops drop us a line. That's a lot of firepower to leverage into value for your fantasy dollar.

BUT WAIT THERE'S (A LOT) MORE

As mentioned, the print side of this shouldn't be ignored.  Aside from the fact that you don't always have time to watch or listen to things -- having analysis on paper is a great way to lock in the answers. One foundational piece of any in-season product is the nightly pickups write-up.  So yeah, that's included. We're also putting some crude, but savvy tools for fantasy owners with our customizable schedule grid, smart depth charts, our weekly start-sit tool and go-forward projections. From that we generate a top-150 list going forward and Dynasty ranks. I'm not going to lie and say we'll be the prettiest in-season product on the market today.  But we're going to be the most dangerous. Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 5.34.52 PM

  • Kz Okpala
    F, Miami Heat

    Kz Okpala's offensive game has come a long way since January according to Heat Vice President and Assistant GM, Adam Simon.

    Okpala is already viewed as an NBA-ready defender, and once his offensive game is up to speed the Heat will have a hard time not getting him into the rotation. He spent 20 games in the G League and five with the Heat before the suspension slowed down his progression in 2020. Okpala got off to a slow start due to injuries, and a trade on draft day took away his chance to play in summer league. While this season is unlikely to amount to anything, Okpala is someone to watch in deeper leagues next year.

  • Gabe Vincent
    PG, Miami Heat

    Heat Vice President and Assistant GM, Adam Simon, stated that Gabe Vincent's knee is "good to go".

    It sounds like Vincent would have no problem being NBA ready if the Heat decided to call up the two-way guard when play hopefully resumes July 31. Vincent is a strong 3-point shooter with the ability to attack a closeout, but it is still unlikely the Heat will need to put him on the floor for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    According to projections by Mike O'Connor and Derek Bodner of The Athletic, Shake Milton will be a starter for the Sixers whenever play relaunches.

    Milton was thriving for the Sixers when the season was suspended due to COVID-19, and some risk remains that Ben Simmons will bump him from the rotation when the stoppage in play is lifted. In 16 starts with the Sixers, Milton averaged 14.1 points, 2.2 3-pointers, 3.6 assists, 3 rebounds and 1.1 steals. As a 3-pointer specialist along, Milton has earned a slot in 12-team formats, but things are going to be more difficult when he is forced to play off-ball in a fully healthy lineup in Philadelphia

  • Kevin Durant
    SF, Brooklyn Nets

    On a recent ESPN podcast featuring Adrian Wojnarowski and his colleague Zach Lowe, Wojnarowski stated that Kevin Durant (torn Achilles) would not play for the Nets this year.

    Wojnarowski went onto say that he had no source that had relayed that information to him. The Nets have largely been deferring to Durant and the medical staff when it comes to his prospects for playing this year. While the organization may get hopeful that KD will lace it up for a playoff run, all signs are still pointing to him waiting until 2020-21.

  • Eric Gordon
    SG, Houston Rockets

    Rockets guard Eric Gordon has improved his diet, focused on sprints, and has apparently shed 12 pounds in the process, according to Kelly Iko of The Athletic.

    Gordon has battled knee ailments for essentially his whole career and has dealt with his fair share of nagging injuries this season as well. Losing weight to create a lighter frame would seem sensible, especially with the knee issues. The Rockets, remember, fully adopted the "small ball" lineup and move fast so Gordon is smart to keep his endurance and fitness at high levels. He's going to have to play well and make shots for the Rockets when the NBA returns to action, otherwise coach Mike D'Antoni won't be able to justify giving Gordon minutes. We don't anticipate much fantasy value out of him if and when the league starts back up.

  • LeBron James
    SF, Los Angeles Lakers

    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the NBA is planning for a Board of Governors vote on Thursday, during which they are expected to approve Adam Silver's proposal for re-starting the season in Orlando.

    The trend lines are all moving in this direction, and this adds another bullet point on the schedule as the league prepares for launching games on July 31. Adam Silver has been able to bridge any divides between ownership and the players, and has been taking into account all his key constituent's views as we approach approval of a plan for moving forward. We still have plenty of items to resolve before we see game action, but the NBA is gaining momentum as these details come into place.

  • Bradley Beal
    SG, Washington Wizards

    On Friday, the Wizards resumed holding voluntary workouts at their practice facilities.

    The Wizards have joined a chorus of teams that are returning in limited capacities to their facilities at this point. The NBA as a whole is continuing its march towards the resumption of play with a target date of July 31 now established. The District of Columbia also entered phase one of reopening today, and it makes sense for the team to proceed on a similar trajectory.

  • Julius Randle
    PF, New York Knicks

    Part of the Knicks' off-season thinking is to shape the roster around RJ Barrett, and it unclear where Julius Randle will fit in those plans.

    Barrett and Randle have similar offensive styles, as they typically have an advantage relying upon their strength to attack the basket, but neither has a component deep ball at this stage in their careers. As Barrett is the younger option it makes sense that the Knicks want to sign shooters to give him more space to operate with. Randle's lousy percentages and turnovers has made for a disappointing season with the Knicks thus far, and Barrett will also need to make some strides in the shooting department to become a 12-team asset. Randle is under contract for next season is owed at least $4,000,000 in 2021-22.

  • Jayson Tatum
    SF, Boston Celtics

    On Friday, the Celtics' announced that their practice facilities would reopen on June 1.

    That leaves us with four NBA teams without access to their facilities. Things are beginning to accelerate throughout the league as teams ramp up activities in hopes of resuming competition in Orlando on July 31. So far so good, but the NBA still has many hurdles to overcome on the path to resuming the season.

  • RJ Barrett
    SF, New York Knicks

    The Knicks reopened their practice facility for voluntary workouts on Friday.

    Another step in the right direction for the NBA's return to action at the end of July. It's still unclear if the Knicks will even be involved in whatever plan is agreed upon, but it is good to learn that the players can now access their facilities in New York. Only five team facilities have not opened up in some capacity at this point.
