Pick him off waivers in January. He's going to miss most of the year, and when (if) he comes back, could really help during playoffs.

Fantasy playoffs, not real playoffs....

Since it's a keeper league, somebody will draft him. It's a tough call for you being the last pick because you're a bit behind the 8 ball as it stands. I think that if you could get Brand in any round at 10 or later, I would do it. But it's a risk either way. Someone might surprise you and take him way before that.

I'd go the nutso route. Tank the season and just draft him unnessecessarily crazily high, even on the good chance he won't be back this season. Draft Oden too. Your team will be so bad it will get next years top picks. Leave yourself 4 potential keepers anything else, trade off early in the season getting back lots of 1st round picks for next year or top teams will often trade their injured stars cheaply.

So here's the plan

Go for Chris Paul+a centre Yao/Amare/Gasol with the 12th and 13th pick.

Kirilenko in the 3rd(on the hope he'll be traded by next year) and Brand with the 4th pick. Oden with the 5th pick. Then draft pick bait with the rest of the picks. Bench all your guys and come back next year.

Thanks For the input guys. I'm not going to tank the season. I'll try to pick him in the later rounds and hold him. I was looking at mock drafts on
http://www.fantasybasketballcafe.com and they drafted him 6th 1st round. That kind of confused me because most people agreed w/ drafting him. Am i missing some information?

Yeah that draft was done really early, before the Brand injury. I think they actually but an * beside Brand's name and made reference to that below.

Brand went undrafted in my league, but someone picked him off wavers pretty quick. It's a risk. Unless the Clippers have a shot at the playoffs when and if he's ready to play, I can't see the team taking the risk of him getting re-injured just to win a few more games. If the opportunity is there, they'll quietly let the season tank so they get a shot at Rose/Mayo/Beasley, and why not?

I agree with anywhere after 10th, maybe even a round higher if you have large roster sizes.
