Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Supposedly Irving is coming back and playing on Tuesday. Should owners be thrilled at the early return, or use this as a sell high opportunity? How confident are you that he is not just going to re-injure the hand, or get a separate injury.
Also, assuming that Cleveland continues to play bad and miss the playoffs... do you expect the team to rest Irving during fantasy playoff time?
I would target someone like Conley for his steals and assists. I am ignoring points. Already good in threes.
Returning from a broken hand is less concerning to me than returning from a knee/ankle-related type injury. Love returned early from a broken hand too, so Love may serve as your reference. Other than low percentages early on, Kyrie should be fine going forward.
Now, whether he would get a separate injury or get rest during fantasy playoff schedule, that's unrelated to his return from the hand injury here, so I am just as confident in him regarding those issues as I am toward any other players.
