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*
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.
