2012-13 Draft Prep: Rotisserie mock draft

Fantasy Writer
  •  

Earlier this week, the CBSSports.com Fantasy staff took part in a Rotisserie mock draft. The participants include CBS Fantasy Sports editorial staff, including writers and editors and the league includes the basic nine categories.

This draft took place just before the news of Kevin Love's hand injury that will force him out for six to eight weeks, or else he likely would have fallen to the second round.

Fantasy owners can use this as a rough sketch for how they might expect their own Roto drafts to go. It is a 12-team with standard positions (four guards, four forwards, two centers), plus reserve spots.

Categories include: Three-pointers made, assists, blocks, field-goal percentage, free-throw percentage, points, steals, total rebounds and turnovers.

Draft order is as follows:

1. Chris Towers, Fantasy Writer
2. Adam Moore, Fantasy Writer
3. Michael Hurcomb, Fantasy Writer
4. Nando DiFino, Fantasy Writer
5. Bill Passonno, Fantasy Writer
6. Jeffrey Lippman, Fantasy Writer
7. Jeffrey Tobin, Associate Managing Editor, Fantasy Sports
8. Scott White, Fantasy Writer
9. Igor Mello, Fantasy Writer
10. Dave Richard, Fantasy Writer
11. Peter Madden, Editorial Director, Fantasy Sports
12. Jamey Eisenberg, Fantasy Writer

Thunder's Russell Westbrook confirms he's playing vs. 76ers
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:52 am ET) Thunder guard Russell Westbrook confirmed to reporters that he will indeed return to the floor Wednesday night against the 76ers, per the Oklahoman.

Westbrook was involved in a scary collision on Friday, where he took a knee to the face that left a dent on his head. He underwent surgery to repair a fractured cheekbone on Saturday, and after missing Sunday's game against the Lakers, the star point guard is set to return with a mask to protect the injury.

With Kevin Durant sidelined, Westbrook is enjoying his best numbers in the NBA and is making a late case for the MVP award. In February, he averaged 31.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 10.3 assists, becoming the first player since Oscar Robertson to average that level of production for a month. Through 45 games, Westbrook is averaging a career best in points (26.5), assists (8.1) and rebounds (6.8) this season.

Oklahoma City is a 15-point home favorite against Philadelphia, per VegasInsider.com.


Fisher: Knicks may rely on Shved over Galloway, Hardaway Jr.
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:40 am ET) Knicks coach Derek Fisher told reporters that he may rely on point guard Alexey Shved more often due to inconsistent play from Langston Galloway and Tim Hardaway Jr. as of late, per Ian Begley of ESPN.

"I think Alexey is kind of continuing to find an identity and find a role in out team, and he's shown an ability to do some things in terms of being able to handle the ball, make passes and make plays," Fisher said. "And he has good size as a guard which (helps) get rebounds, (helps him) get to the free throw line and do a lot of things for us.

"I think we just have to commit ourselves to helping him feel more and more comfortable every day and we might have to rely on him even more," Fisher said. "Because we're sometimes inconsistent in our guard spots and some of that is expected with Langston (Galloway) still learning as a rookie guard how to bring it every night. Tim (Hardaway Jr.) is still a second-year player still learning to do those things. So hopefully we can get Alex even more up to speed and have him as a guy that we continue to rely on."

Shved was acquired from the Rockets along with two second-round picks in the deadline-day deal that sent Pablo Prigioni to Houston. Shved has scored in double figures in each of his last four games. He is averaging 13.0 points while shooting 37.8 percent from the field over that span, and contributing with 4.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists per contest.


Report: Suns hesitant to use Danny Granger this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:31 am ET) Forward Danny Granger could join the Suns later this season, according to the Arizona Republic.

The Suns acquired Granger from Miami roughly two weeks ago at the trade deadline. However, with three other small forwards on the current roster (P.J. Tucker, Marcus Morris and T.J. Warren), the Suns are hesitant to use Granger this season, and want him to work with their athletic trainers to improve his health for next season. The 31-year-old has a $2.1 million player option for next season.


Report: Raptors could make a run at JaVale McGee
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Mavericks and Heat are among the other teams weighing in on whether to make a play for the embattled center. McGee averaged 4.6 points and 2.7 rebounds. in 23 games this season, including 17 with Denver.


Heat coach Spoelstra hints that Tyler Johnson will play Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11:15 am ET) Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that guard Tyler Johnson will be available to play Wednesday night against the Lakers, according to the Sun Sentinel.

Johnson is nursing a sore ankle after registering a career-high 26 points in Monday's win over the Suns. He is averaging 7.5 points and 1.9 rebounds while shooting 52.4 percent from the field through 12 games.

Miami is a 9-point home favorite against Los Angeles, per VegasInsider.com.


Harris, Fournier, Gordon limited in morning shootaround for Magic
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:22 am ET) Magic forward Tobias Harris (knee), guard Evan Fournier (hip) and forward Aaron Gordon (ankle) were all limited in shootaround on Wednesday due to injuries. Point guard Luke Ridnour was unable to take part in shootaround due to a hamstring injury, per the team's official website.

Orlando will host Phoenix on Wednesday, and are 4 1/2-point underdogs, per VegasInsider.com.


Kevin Love received postgame IV Tuesday, will play Wednesday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:13 am ET) Cavaliers forward Kevin Love received an IV following Tuesday's 110-79 victory over the Celtics, ESPN reports. Although he revealed that he may be dealing with food poisoning, he said he plans to play Wednesday night against the Raptors.

Love played through the illness despite missing Tuesday's shootaround. He scored 12 points and grabbed eight rebounds while logging 25 minutes of game action in the win. He is averaging a double-double -- 16.9 points and 10.2 boards -- through his first 59 games in Cleveland. 

Cleveland is a 5-point favorite at Toronto, per VegasInsider.com.


Steve Nash hints retirement: 'NBA game is just a touch too far for me'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10:04 am ET) Lakers guard Steve Nash hinted that his NBA career is likely over while making an appearance on TSN Radio 1040 on Tuesday. Nash admitted that the wear-and-tear of his body can no longer handle game action.

"Unfortunately the NBA game is just a touch too far for me," Nash said. "I play one game and I'm out a month. I have a bunch of back things going on that compromise that nerve.

"I never worked as hard as I did the last 18 months, two years, twice a day almost every day to try to just give it that one last year," Nash said. "And I finally just had to admit that it’s just not meant to be."

Nash, 41, was ruled out for the 2014-15 season with recurring nerve issues in his back. He is owed $9.7 million this year before he becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. The eight-time NBA All-Star has career averages of 14.3 points, 8.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds over 18 seasons.


Warriors' Kerr grateful that Iguodala, Lee accepted reserve roles
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:39 am ET) Warriors coach Steve Kerr acknowledged Tuesday he's grateful that Andre Iguodala and David Lee each accepted a reserve role on the team, which has contributed to Golden State's 46-12 record this season -- only two wins behind the Hawks for the best record in the NBA.

Iguodala only accepted a role off the bench once in his career, and it wasn't even in the NBA. While winning an Olympic gold medal in 2012 as a member of Team USA, Iguodala took a back seat to LeBron James.

"It's one of the most gratifying parts of the season," Kerr said, per the Washington Post. "That's really what you hope for as a coach. That each guy is going to accept a role and understand that that role is designed to make the team better and that it may cost him some minutes and some points and all that stuff. But if everyone buys in, and believes, you've got a pretty strong, powerful force and I think we've achieved that to this point."

Lee also didn't have any objections to Kerr's plans this season when he was told that Draymond Green was a better fit in the starting lineup.

"I've had plenty of years putting up big numbers, being an All-Star and doing things like that. Now it's time to chase a ring and I love what our team is doing and our chemistry. And the character guys on our team, nobody cares who gets the credit," Lee said. "We know that we have two bona fide superstars in Steph and Klay and everybody else is really here to fill around those guys and to make them as successful as possible."


Hornets coach Clifford: Hairston's not making his teammates better
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12:28 am ET) Hornets coach Steve Clifford doesn't like what he's seen from rookie P.J. Hairston as of late. Monday, Hairston was made inactive for arriving late to a weight training session and Tuesday Clifford had some harsh words for the rookie, according to the Charlotte Observer.

"He hasn't developed any way to play to make his teammates better," Clifford said.

Hairston didn't play again on Tuesday and is averaging 5.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 35 games this season.
