Boobie’s Back

April 2, 2008 | by RotoRob | Comments (3)
Delonte West should continue to start at PG for the time being.
Delonte West should continue to man the point for the Cavs while Boobie Gibson tries to work his way back in shape.

Daniel “Boobie” Gibson was able to return to action Wednesday night after being forced out early Sunday with a left ankle sprain.

It’s great news for Gibson owners, who had to deal with the Cavs’ guard missing 18 games earlier this season with an injury to the same ankle.

Having said that, Gibson wasn’t exactly sharp tonight, sinking just 1-of-7 for two points in 19 minutes off the bench as Cleveland rallied from an early deficit to outgun the Bobcats 118-114 in Charlotte.

At this rate, starter Delonte West looks safe for the time being, and followed up his big game Sunday (18 points, 11 assists) with another solid all-around effort (10 points, seven assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer). Clearly, it’s going to take some time before Boobie is ready to take over the starting PG job, shifting West back to the two-guard spot.

The big winner here may be Devin Brown, who is not only starting and playing heavy minutes, but performing. Wednesday, he scored 20 points with eight assists, five rebounds and two steals. Hello? It may be time to give Brown some waiver wire love, people.

Ben Wallace (back spasms) has been cleared to play, but he missed his second straight game as coach Mike Brown decided to play it safe with his big man.

Of course, Big Ben hasn’t exactly been thriving since arriving in Cleveland, averaging just 4.9 PPG and 7.9 RPG, with numbers down almost across the board compared to what he was doing in Chicago.

In the meantime, Anderson Varejao continues to start, and judging by what he did tonight (17 points on 8-for-9 shooting with 12 rebounds), Sideshow Bob looks like a nice short-term pickup.

After severely tearing the muscle in the season’s opening game, the All-Star catcher will undergo a rare procedure next week, whereby the hamstring of a cadaver will be infused into Martinez’s leg. It’s an operation that has only been [...]

Sidney Crosby is expected to be back in action Thursday night when the Penguins take on the New York Islanders. Let’s hope for his owners’ sake, Sid the Kid lasts longer than the last time he returned. After missing 21 games with an ankle injury, Crosby came back on March 4, but after just three games, he [...]

Halo Rotation Suddenly Lack(ey)ing its Ace

March 15, 2008 | by Tim McLeod | Comments (1)
The Angels were dealt a rather harsh blow to their already depleted pitching corps, when it was announced Saturday that John Lackey will be shut down for at least a month with a strained right triceps. With Kelvim Escobar already going to miss most of April, it’s a damn good thing the Halos added some [...]

Yanks Dealing with Spring Pains

Joe Girardi says he’s not worried about Andy Pettitte’s elbow. Should you be? (AP) It’s always a frustration for fantasy owners when trying to determine which Spring Training injuries mean something and which simply fall into the ‘I would have played if this game counted” category. Consider the raft of injuries the New York Yankees are currently [...]
