I hope you're not in a 9 cat league T...

Love is a double-double machine and his transition to Center has been seamless for his continuing monster production. He finished last night’s game with 31 points and 20 boards in 40 minutes splitting time between F/C. He can be counted on for production in those 2 categories night in and night out.
Okur is struggling mightily to start the season after coming off an injury-filled season last year. Okur is 1-9 in his first 2 games of the season, despite putting in 40 minutes of playing time. Okur‘s 3 points and 7 boards are not numbers you want in your lineup right now.
It looks like the 21 points in the first game of the season was not fluke, as Wallace dropped a 25 spot in last night’s action. Wallace played a healthy 36 minutes and in addition to the 25 points, he added 8 boards, 4 assists, and 2 blocked shots. Wallace looks like a guy who could a nice stat filler for your squad.
Rondo is off to a hot start this season and showed up in the box score last night with 22 points and 12 assists in 44 minutes of playing time. He did end the night with 7 turnovers, so if you are in a 9 cat scoring system, he pretty much negated his assists.
Bass will be one of the hottest adds this week as he has 33 points, 16 boards, and 2 blocked shots. With the loss of Jeff Green for the season and the fact that Jermaine O’neil can no longer play long minutes, the door is open for Bass. He should hover between 25-30 minutes this season and is worth a spot on your roster.
Crawford saw his first extended action of the season with nearly 22 minutes off the bench. He didn’t disappoint with 12 points, 4 assists, 4 boards, and 4 steals. Look for Crawford to continue to rack up plenty of stats as his minutes increase throughout the season.
Cole looks like he will be a major threat to Mario Chalmers after coming off the bench last night for 29 minutes of playing time. He dropped 20 points on 8-16 shooting, with 4 assists, 4 boards, and 3 steals. He looks like a good add off the wire if your in need in some upside at guard.
I thought Jefferson was in for a big night last night, but he couldn;t get his shot to fall. He played 24 minutes, but only hit on 2 of 16 from the field. He got off to a slow start last season as well, so this shoudn’t be a problem going forward. Hopefully, he can get back on track tonight.
