Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I picked him up off of waivers as soon as the coaching change was made in Milwaukee strictly because of his potential. It's hurting my team though because I'm loaded at PF, but Rudy Gay is the only SF on my roster. I see Ilyasova has SF eligibility in both ESPN and Yahoo leagues and even the Yahoo experts ranked him as an SF before the season. He seems to be logging time at SF even though he's not starting there every night. When is Yahoo going to make the change?

That's actually incorrect. Maybe that's how ESPN does it, but if you email Yahoo they will tell you that there is no set criteria for them to administer new eligibility... They say they take into consideration many factors, but it seems like it usually happens about 2 weeks to a month after you would think it would happen, if at all.
I had an opportunity to trade for him and buy extremely low earlier on, because I had a feeling he'd break out of his slump eventaully, but I didn't because I really needed someone with SF eligilbilty. With David West and Kenneth Faried I couldn't afford to have 3 PF only elgible guys.
I remember going through this last year with Josh Smith and his PF eliglibity. After many emails to yahoo from various people on here, it was determined that at least up until last year Yahoo doesn't have any specific sets of criteria that make them change it.
For instance, they don't have a rule like: 6 starts at that position and they are eligible. It seems like they just decide whenever they feel like it!
I also wish Jared Sullinger would get C eligiblity! I know he's not a must own player in 12 team leagues (yet) but I am in a few 16-20 team leagues where he'd be much more interesting to own if he could be inserted at the center slot also.
