Please help! What's up with JR Smith?
 
Pietrus is starting and JR Smith is not even playing much. Did I miss something here when everyone was saying to pick him up NOW? I don't need a ton of threes, but thought he was going to be a "specialist." Please help?

Or I could grab Sessions or Garcia?

Smith had foul trouble last night. I am not sure about him. He should/could be very good and then you would definitely get lots via trade. Garcia should be owned, as should Sessions.

But it depends on what your team needs. To me, it looks like you're not too great in dimes. I'd be moving Baron and Felton for better %'s players, making sure you get the 3's and steals, but forgetting dimes.

No one can predict the future obviously. It looked like he was a great fit for the Denver offense after the big trade, but he's been struggling. Check his game log from last year and you'll see incredible swings of inconsistency, which he's probably in the middle of right now. I wouldnt jump to any major conclusions just yet, but you've got to monitor your own patience and make decisions from there.

Garcia might be more dependable in the near future than JR, offering threes, scoring and steals as well, but you'll need to wait out his injury. I wouldnt have a problem with you dropping Chandler for Garcia, since Wilson probably hasnt cracked your starting lineup yet, but thats your call.

I think JR is worth keeping and watching him a bit longer. There's no way to tell how he'll fit in to the new offense with Chauncey yet. Kleiza is playing badly so they need him off the bench right now. He'll have a chance to get starter's minutes at some point.

You could use some assists and steals. I would try to get someone to replace Felton in your lineup otherwise it's early in the season and not too bad.
