Default Whats up with Boris??

Just heading into the season Boris Diaw was up there around 20-30 in overall ranks, now I can't trade him for nothin'. I've heard things like "he's fat," with additional players, those returning from injury, signing Jalen Rose... his minutes will go way down. I see he is off the starting lineup too. Is he dumpable for the right "free agent"... or do you think he will turn it around, Stoudamire will be out again, etc...

Thanks.

wait for him to get a few good games under his belt and trade him... the same concerns you are having most people are and I doubt there is anyone on the waiver wire worth dumping him for!

he's only had 1 good year, maybe everyone overrated him a little bit... His minutes are down by like 10 minutes but he's still not putting up the same all-around #'s that he did last year. Not that I saw this big of a drop off coming but I still stayed away from him in all my drafts. Give him another 3-4 weeks to turn things around... If he has an awesome week, try trading him. If not, throw him in a package deal to get rid of him.

this is all true... what do you think about barbosa? do you think his value and performance will go down. he's killin it now but maybe i should trade him away while his fantasy value is hot. what do you think.

hang on to Diaw for a bit longer...once they get their starting lineup set then hopefully everything will get back to normal which will hopefully boost his numbers back up to a decent level. although i avoided him in the draft because i had no idea how he was going to do this year with amare coming back...not knowing if he's going to start, come off the bench, continue to improve or drop off. give him a couple weeks and if nothing changes look elsewhere.

Says here D'Antoni is going to insert Diaw into the starting line-up. Look for a boost in numbers.

Thanks Mukdori! I try to read up on the guru/pro tips, but missed this one. Sounds great... just hope he doesn't disappoint back in the starting 5.
