Chris Kaman's Fantasy value gets a small boost
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/17/14) Trail Blazers center Chris Kaman seems likely to remain in a reserve role for the Blazers even in the wake of Robin Lopez's broken hand, but that doesn't mean his Fantasy value will remain static. At the Fantasy Basketball Today blog, I took a look at Kaman's Fantasy potential for the six weeks while Lopez is expected out:
"However, though the path to a larger role is clearer for him, Kaman still has plenty of questions attached to his value. Specifically, whether he can manage to hold up under the strain of more minutes. Kaman has been notoriously injury-prone in recent years, missing an average of 32 games per season between 2010-11 and 2013-14. He has not averaged more than 21 minutes per game since 2011-12, and might not be able to carry a larger load without setbacks.
Kaman should be productive in a larger role, but hopefully the Blazers are judicious with their usage of him. This team doesn't have the depth to afford losing Kaman as well, so it might be best to cap his minutes around 25 on most nights. Additionally, his production may not increase as much as we might hope, since he's going from anchoring the second unit to playing more with a Blazers' first unit that doesn't leave many shots left over for the fifth option."
Kaman is worth adding in many Fantasy leagues, though he probably shouldn't be viewed as more than a low-end top-20 center even in an expanded role.

Trail Blazers' Robin Lopez to be out 'a while' with broken hand
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez will be out "a while" due to a fractured hand.
Lopez left the contest due to a hand injury, and was ruled out after being evaluated. Head coach Terry Stotts told the media he expected Lopez to be out "a while" due to the injury. Lopez was able to play 19 minutes, scoring 4 points, before leaving. After the game, Lopez was spotted in the locker room with a large wrap on his right hand. He'll be re-evaluated on Tuesday.
|Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez adjusted well in his first season with his new club and is primed for another solid campaign in 2014-15. Lopez was dominant on the glass and finished the season as the team's second-leading rebounder, only behind LaMarcus Aldridge. The 26-year-old posted averages of 11.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.7 blocks while shooting 55.1 percent from the field and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. His field goal percentage was his best since his second season in the league in 2009-10. He also managed to play all 82 games for the second consecutive season. We expect Lopez to increase his numbers across the board, so consider him a top-15 center targeted as early as the fourth round.
