2013 Fantasy Basketball Draft Prep: 12-team Roto mock

Fantasy Writer
  •  

The season starts in -- *checks calendar * -- six days? Six days! There is still plenty of time to get your Fantasy drafts in under the wire; I've got three more myself before opening night.

Earlier in the preseason, we did our mock draft for a head-to-head, standard scoring league, and we now present the results of our Rotisserie league draft.

This draft went mostly as planned, but there were a few surprises; Brandon Jennings in the first round was an unexpected one, though I actually think he is very underrated for Fantasy purposes. Sure, the shooting percentage hurts, but he hasn't dealt with many injury concerns, and will rack up steals, assists, 3-pointers and points at a high level.

At the top, LeBron James went ahead of Kevin Durant, and I can go either way on that. I would personally lean towards Durant, simply because he is less likely to take time off later in the year, and is an absolute killer in the percentage categories, while improving his all-around game. You can't go wrong with either, and Stephen Curry's insane combination of high-volume three-point shooting, assists and points isn't a bad runner-up prize at No. 3.

Anthony Davis is flying up draft boards, and he is a borderline first-round value in category-based formats. If his preseason performance is any indication, he could be on the verge of becoming a top five overall Fantasy option.

Use this as a guide to give you relative draft values as you prepare your last-minute leagues.

Al Jefferson strains plantar fascia in Game 1
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) Bobcats center Al Jefferson suffered a strained left plantar fascia in Game 1 of the opening round of the playoffs Sunday against Miami. 

Jefferson made a quick trip to the locker room in the opening quarter of the game before returning in the second quarter and struggling the rest of the way. He was seen with walking boot after a 99-88 defeat to the Heat.

"I've got to suck it up. I'll be fine for the remainder of the playoffs," Jefferson told the Charlotte Observer after the game.

Game 2 is Wednesday in Miami.


Danny Granger limited to three points in playoff opener
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Clippers forward Danny Granger was eased back into action on Saturday, and did little with his 12 minutes off the bench in his team's 109-105 Game 1 loss to the Warriors in the opening round of the playoffs.

Granger scored just three points on 1 of 6 from the field, including 0 of 2 from downtown, and 1 of 1 from the free throw line. He also chipped in with two rebounds and one assist in his first game back from a hamstring strain.

Andre Iguodala does little in return to starting lineup
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Warriors guard Andre Iguodala (knee) got the start in his team's 109-105 victory over the Clippers in Game 1 of the first round of the playoff on Saturday.

Iguodala was the only Golden State starter held under 10 points, finishing with just eight on 3 of 6 from the floor, including 0 of 1 from 3-point land, and 2 of 2 from the free throw line. He also chipped in with three assists and one rebound while logging 20 minutes of game action.

Nets trio proves healthy as postseason opens
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) The Nets rested a slew of starters late in the regular season, and they were healthy enough to play in Saturday's postseason opener against the Raptors Saturday as a result.

Guards Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston were all in the starting lineup and playing their usual roles Saturday, after getting time off to rest their various maladies. Johnson led the trio with 45 minutes played, but Williams logged 39 and Livingston played 29 minutes of his own in the 94-87 win.

Williams and Johnson tied for the team lead with 24 points scored, though Johnson was more efficient, shooting 8 of 13 from the field compared to Williams' 8-for-20 mark. Livingston brought up the rear with 10 points on 4 of 6 shooting as well.

With extra time off, the Nets should be able to keep their sometimes fragile roster healthy in the postseason. Johnson led the team with 79 games played this season, while Livingston appeared in 75 games and Williams play 64. 


Nick Calathes hit with 20-game suspension prior to postseason
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2014) Grizzlies guard Nick Calathes will begin serving a 20-game suspension when the team's first-round playoff series begins against the Thunder Saturday, reports Yahoo.com.

Calathes was hit with the suspension for violating the league's Anti-Drug policy, though his failed test reportedly si not due to testosterone or PED use. According to the report, Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, part of an over-the-counter athletic supplement Calathes was using.

Calathes appeared in 71 games for the Grizzlies, and his loss will be felt, as he was the team's primary reserve at point guard. He finished his rookie season averaging 4.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 16.5 minutes per game.  


Victor Oladipo will see time in summer league
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Magic guard Victor Oladipo maybe be one of the frontrunners for Rookie of the Year, but that doesn't mean he doesn't have room to improve. Magic general manager Rob Hennigan told the Orlando Sentinel in Thursday's exit interview Oladipo will take part in the summer league yet again, but may not be used in every game this time around.

Oladipo ended up playing in 80 games for the Magic, and finished in the top-five in most major categories among rookies. He averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. He also played the most minutes total among rookies. 


Danny Granger expects to play in first postseason game
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Clippers forward Danny Granger took part in practice Thursday and plans to be available for the start of the team's first round playoff matchup against the Warriors Saturday.

Granger missed the final nine games of the regular season with a hamstring strain, and ended up playing just 41 regular season games. He averaged 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game for the Clippers.  

 


Tyreke Evans could push Eric Gordon to bench
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Pelicans guard Tyreke Evans closed his season out strong after a slow start, and the impetus was a move to the starting lineup March. After he found success as a starter, the team might make the move permanent next season.

From March 1 on, he averaged 20.0 points, 6.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, while starting 21 of the team's final 22 games. His success could lead the team to consider a full-time switch next season, and coach Monty Williams told the team's official website that is something they will consider, especially with incumbent shooting guard Eric Gordon's inability to stay healthy yet again.

Evans ended up finishing fifth on the team in scoring at 14.5 points per game, while adding 4.7 rebounds and 5.0 assists, and appearing in the third-most games. 


Steve Nash plans to get healthy in offseason
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Lakers guard Steve Nash was rarely healthy while appearing in just 15 games this season, but he told reporters in exit interviews Thursday he is in better shape than he was at this point a year ago.

Nash said he could be fully healthy in three-to-four weeks, after it took him five months last offseason. Despite this, he isn't sure if he will be able to maintain his health by the start of training camp. He plans to be at training camp, but will need to evaluate his health before the start of next season, after being extremely limited by ongoing nerve issues.

Nash finished the season averaging 6.8 points and 5.7 assists per game in his 15 appearances, but has maintained he is not planning to retire. He is under contract for one more season, and will be paid $9.7 million next year. 


Andre Drummond puts finishing touches on one-of-a-kind season
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Pistons center Andre Drummond is a unique talent; anyone can see that. He finished one of the most unique seasons in modern league history Wednesday in typical fashion, as he snared his 57th double-double in a loss to the Thunder.

Drummond finished the game with 22 points and 13 rebounds, including eight offensive rebounds to push his league-leading total to 440. That represents the eighth-highest total since 1979-80, and it isn't the only place where Drummond's season stands out.

Though he shot 62.3 percent from the field, Drummond remained the league's worst free-throw shooter. He became just the third play since 1979-80 to play 2500 total minutes while shooting below 42.0 percent from the free-throw line, as his 4-for-8 performance Wednesday raised his average to 41.8 percent.

Drummond improved his production across the board in his second season, averaging 13.5 points, 13.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.6 blocks per game while appearing in 81 games.
