    Description

    There are a handful of decent draft guides out there.

    We’re a bit biased here, but ours is the best.

    And when you’re playing for pride or money, you don’t want second best. Or third best. Or the generic one that everybody reads at a TV big box site.

    You want the guide that wins national championships. You want the managing editor of the guide to be a FSWA Fantasy Basketball Writer of the Year. You want the Bruski 150 because year after year it puts other rankings to shame and consistently produces winners.

    Mostly, you want the people giving you fantasy advice to actually put their money where their mouth is (and win) year after year.

    I organized and produced draft guide coverage years at Rotoworld and what I can tell you is that it’s only as good as the backbone of the research. The backbone here is the Bruski 150, a ranking and projections methodology which is supplemented by industry leading analysts Dan Besbris and 30-DEEP winner Mike Passador, Erik Ong, Nathan Nguyen, Chef Ali, Souriyo Dishak, Adrian Benjamins, Neil Rochlani, Josh Millman and more.

    Unlike other rankings that just get thrown together, the B150 is made using proprietary algorithms, MONTHS of ALL DAY research, YEARS of experience and custom-built projections for nearly every player in the NBA.

    It is from this central point of analysis that the coverage gets built out and because the foundation is strong, the rest of the draft guide can get really aggressive.

    Year after year it destroys the competition. Last year kept the undefeated streak alive with another 60-40 win over the best fantasy site not named Hoop Ball.

    The best part is that right now we’re a small website. While most of your competition will be reading from the generic big box lists, you’re getting pro grade advice that nobody else in your league will have. At least for now.

    Thanks for the support everybody.

    INCLUDED WITH THE GUIDE

    – FREE –

    Hoop Ball RotoBalance App for Android

    We performed statistical analysis on thousands (28k+) of fantasy basketball leagues from the 2016-2018 seasons.

    The goal was to find out if there is a correlation between the size of the leagues and the amount of each stat you need to win the category.

    The answer is yes! We found exactly how much of each stat you need to compete in your league, and it depends on the league’s size.

    We do that research as a foundation of Hoop Ball’s Draft Guide and the projections used for the Bruski 150.

    Now, we’re bringing that research to you in an app that will help you draft a strong, but balanced squad so you don’t waste picks on players that might be inefficient for your particular squad or team build.

    The app is free for Hoop Ball Draft Guide subscribers and we are going to continue building this out so you guys can keep dominating your leagues!

Fantasy News

  • Terrance Ferguson - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (personal) is out for Monday's game.

    Ferguson was away from the team starting Saturday and we have no timetable for his return. Hamidou Diallo likely starts while Ferguson is out and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot should get extended run off the bench again.

  • Russell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook (personal) was at shootaround Monday and will be evaluated before Monday's game.

    Westbrook was listed on the injury report as out for personal, not his ankle, but that still is the key to coming back. He just welcomed a pair of twins into the world, but this is also around the time he could return from his ankle injury. He was initially ruled out for this game so we'd still lean that way, but he's looking like a true game-time decision. Watch for updates.

  • Davis Bertans - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Davis Bertans (concussion protocol) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Bertans was expected to miss this game after missing Sunday's game. There's currently no timetable for him. His absence opens up minutes for Dante Cunningham, who will continue to start. Jakob Poeltl will get more minutes of the bench as he tries to turn around the disastrous start he's had to his San Antonio career.

  • Pau Gasol - C/F - San Antonio Spurs

    Pau Gasol (foot) is out for Monday's contest.

    Gasol was expected to miss all of San Antonio's roadtrip and we have not gotten word on his timetable. Dante Cunningham will continue to start, while Jakob Poeltl will get extra looks off the bench. With Rudy Gay (rest) questionable, the Spurs frontcourt could be in for some heavy lifting against Anthony Davis and co.

  • Rudy Gay - F - San Antonio Spurs

    Rudy Gay (rest) is questionable for Monday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Gay is a must-own player right now. He's been providing consistent mid-late round value when on the court, but knowing Gregg Popovich, he will get a few games off for rest. Check his status closer to game-time.

  • Kris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls

    According to coach Fred Hoiberg, Kris Dunn (sprained MCL) has started doing straight-ahead running and there's no change in his timetable.

    The original timetable was 4-to-6 weeks and today marks the fourth week since Dunn suffered the injury. The Bulls are not rushing any of their young players back from injury, so do not expect Dunn to return soon – he's still probably a few weeks away. Over the past two weeks, Shaq Harrison has played 20.0 minutes per game off the bench and has cracked the top-120 per game value, while Ryan Arcidiacano has been starting but is barely in the top-200. Those two are the only ones worth a look while Dunn is out.

  • Dwyane Wade - G - Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade will return "soon" according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Wade has been away after the birth of his daughter for just over a week, which was how long he was expected to miss. He is putting his family first during his last season in the association and no one can blame him for that. Once he returns, he will probably sap minutes from all the wing players, but Wayne Ellington is a candidate to lose the most.

  • Goran Dragic - G - Miami Heat

    Goran Dragic (right knee injury) had his knee drained Monday morning and the hope is for him to return next week.

    The Heat realized the injury needed to be taken care of for Dragic to fully heal. It was just fluid that was drained and they are hoping the inflammation dies down by next week. You can comfortably rule him out for three games before checking back on his status. Tyler Johnson is worth picking up as a streamer for the week while Josh Richardson and Justise Winslow should continue to see ball-handling duties as well.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    According to Marc Stein, the Grizzlies have been in "extensive discussions" with free agent center Joakim Noah.

    After Tom Thibodeau had no interest in bringing in Noah, it was probably a sign that he was done, but it appears he may get another opportunity to prove himself. Noah was working on his jumpshot over the summer in an effort to adapt to the modern game. Noah has a lot of tred on the tires and would not be fantasy relevant on the Grizzlies, barring a Derrick Rose-esque comeback.

  • Dwight Howard - C - Washington Wizards

    Dwight Howard (aggravated gluteal soreness) missed practice on Monday.

    Howard's preseason injury that stretch into the regular season was a piriformis strain, which is a muscle in the rear. He apparently had trouble sitting down to put his socks on before Sunday's game and ended up leaving without returning. If he misses time, Ian Mahinmi likely starts at center. Jeff Green and Kelly Oubre would be the ones with increased fantasy value.
