Listen to internet radio with RotoinfoXcomX on Blog Talk RadioRotoInfo.com Basketball Breakdown Show is hosted by the Fantasy Nomad Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad) & Hecman http://twitter.com/hecmanhoops) of Hecmanhoops.com  Show Topics: •Player Trends Emerging   •Injury News   •Add/Drop Recommendations  The Boston Celtics had an inspirational win yesterday afternoon, taking the defending World Champion Miami Heat to double overtime before edging out a 100-98 victory.  It was inspirational because they did it without All-Star PG Rajon Rondo, and did it even after learning that Rondo had indeed torn his ACL and would be sidelined for the rest of the season!  Mike explained how to "replace" Rondo yesterday.It was a classic Celtics win in which they battled and scratched their way to points while playing lock down defense.  Boston had lost 6 consecutive games before yesterday victory but the rest of the season is looking very tough for the Celtics who currently are holding on to the 8th seed in the Eastern Conference with Philly, Detroit and Toronto just a few games behind.  The Washington Wizards are 7-3 in their last 10 games and got back John Wall just in time.  They might be second to last in the East, but they are less than 10 games behind the Celtics for that final playoff spot.  The Eastern Conference race is going to be fun to watch the rest of the way.Michael Beasley (56% owned Yahoo) has finally stepped up his game and has reached double figures in scoring in 5 of his last 7 games including two 20 point performances.  He has also pulled down at least 5 rebounds in 5 of those 7 games.  For those of you looking to dump him, now is the time to sell high and I STRONGLY suggest doing so!  Do you have a PG to give the guy who lost Rondo?  Try throwing Beasley in the mix to "sweeten" the deal and get a nice piece in return!  Oh and did I mention he is still coming off the bench for the Suns?The Bulls were without Luol Deng for the last 5 games, but Jimmy Butler (10%) filled in beautifully with 14 points and 8.6 rebounds per start.  If you added Butler congrats, but its time to dump him as Deng should return to action on Wednesday.  The way Ricky Rubio (64%) has been struggling to run the Timberwolves offense makes me believe that J.J. Barea (12%) and Luke Ridnour (50%) are going to be HUGE fantasy players in the near feature.  With the loss of  Rondo, & Alexey Shved's ankle injury added to Rubio's poor play, Ridnour and Barea are must owns at the moment.  Points to AddBradley Beal - SG Wizards (66%)Jarrett Jack - PG,SG Warriors (64%)Kyle Korver - SG,SF Hawks (61%)Ramon Sessions - PG,SG Bobcats (58%)Luke Ridnour - PG,SG Timberwolves (50%)Tiago Splitter - C Spurs (40%)Carlos Delfino - SG,SF Rockets (32%)Alan Anderson - SG,SF Raptors (21%)Nate Robinson - PG,SG Bulls (21%)Rebounds to AddTristan Thompson - PF,C Cavaliers (65%)Emeka Okafor - C Wizards (58%)Amir Johnson - PF,C Raptors (47%)Carl Landry - SF,PF Warriors (46%)Ed Davis - PF,C Raptors (41%)Tiago Splitter - C (40%)Al-Farouq Aminu - SF Hornets (34%)Earl Clark - SF,PF Lakers (21%)Tyler Zeller - PF,C Cavaliers (21%)Jared Sullinger - PF Celtics (14%)Lamar Odom - SF,PF Clippers (7%)3pts to AddBradley Beal- SG Wizards (66%)Kyle Korver - SG,SF Hawks (61%)Mike Dunleavy - SG,SF Bucks (42%)Randy Foye - PG,SG Jazz (41%)Carlos Delfino - SG,SF Rockets (32%)Martell Webster - SG,SF Wizards (9%)Assists to AddJarrett Jack - PG,SG Warriors (64%)Isaiah Thomas - PG Kings (58%)Ramon Sessions - PG,SG Bobcats (58%)Andre Miller - PG,SG Nuggets (45%)Kirk Hinrich - PG,SG Bulls (29%)Eric Bledsoe - PG,SG Clippers (27%)Nate Robinson - PG,SG Bulls (21%)J.J.
