Default Fantasy Basketball News, Notes, and Tidbits *Statman32 style*

An MRI on Thursday revealed that Antawn Jamison's right shoulder injury will force him to miss the next three to five weeks.

First major injury this season to a star player. Will miss appx 10-15 games but it also could prove to be a nagging injury. Wizards are being conservative with this injury which is bad news short term for his FB owners but great long-term.

*Must have pick-up for owners*

Andray Blatche PF/C, Washington Wizards-

Coach Flip Saunders is still deciding on who will start between Oberto and Blatche but Blatche will get enough minutes either way for him to be a productive fantasy player until Jamison gets back. Oberto has no real value in leagues with 14 teams or less.

Blatche as starter last year:

11.8 pts/6.3 reb/2.1 ast/47.4 fg%/71.6ft%/1.7 to/0.8 stl/1.1 blk in 28.3 mpg

Blatche as starter 2 seasons ago:

11.5 pts/8.1 reb/1.5 ast/47fg%/68.2 ft%/1.9 to/1.2 stl/1.9 blk in 31 mpg

Look for his production to be closer to 2 years ago then last year.

Brendan Haywoods value should also go up as he will benefit from a few more touches.
