    • Drop them all, believe me, you wont regret it. You may still lose, but looking back, you will know there was no other option

    • gasol will be back next week and the Lakers really need him to play to get that #1 SEED in the West. The mavericks also need Dirk and rumor has it that he is recooperating faster than expected. Just keep up on the news with him. Now with Marion.. unfortunately i had to drop him. The Heat have no reason to put him out there to play with rookies and re-injure himself. you gotta make the tough decision and drop him for another big guy like Powell, Collison, David Lee, Powe, Perkins, or someone else who could get u rebounds to replace Marion. Roy is another player you should drop. He says he will be back late next week, but why would the Blazers want that. They are out of the race and he is their future. He is an all-star. If he plays, he will be limited.

    • Keep Roy and maybe Dirk, good luck

    • Gasol and Marion might come back next week. Dirk and Roy will out 2 weeks. Luck is very important in H2H league any way. Good Luck!

      Keep Gasol. Was supposed to be back today. But Lakers are just giving him extra time he probably doesn't even need. He'll be back Wednesday against Portland for sure if not sooner.

      Drop Marion. Heats are playing all their 2nd and 3rd string players regardless of their health. Hell he might have already played the last game of his career wearing a Heat jersey. (might jump ship next season).

      Drop Dirk this Sunday if nothing changes, but at the moment hes gone for probably the next week and a half. They'll play him again as soon as he can even dribble the ball. Dallas risks everything without him. He might be out until just before playoffs, so if you make it to your finals hopefully he'll be ok and still on your roster.

      Drop Roy. With an 8 person league I can't imagine that there aren't any good players left to take his spot. I'm sure you have a good amount of really good players not even touched in your league. And Portland has no chance at playoffs. They're going to start doing what the Heat are doing and benching their starters.

    • just pay attention to news about those players. dirk might be out, this is the time of year that seperates the winners from the losers, just be consistent on checking on your players and you'll do fine
