So much for my previous FAAB strategy of picking up an injured Orlando Magic PF/C Glen Davis and stashing him away. Big Baby had returned from his previous sprained left shoulder, and he was playing pretty well. However, he suffered a broken left foot in Wednesday’s game against the New York Knicks and he has returned to Orlando for further tests. It’s uncertain how long he’ll be sidelined, but obviously this is a long-term injury. Fantasy owners will want to drop him immediately.
With Davis on the shelf again, the biggest beneficiary might be rookie F Andrew Nicholson, who has shown well in the past during spurts. Nicholson is certainly worth adding in deeper leagues if you need an immediate replacement for Davis, and/or if you’re just a little thin in the frontcourt. Moe Harkless and DeQuan Jones might also see additional responsibilities, but take a wait-and-see approach with those two, as they don’t warrant any Fantasy consideration just yet.
