The San Antonio Spurs best player and point guard, Tony Parker, will miss the rest of March with a grade 2 ankle sprain.  Tony Parker has been unbelievable this season averaging 21 points per game (only other time he averaged 20 points per game was the '08-'09 season) and adding 7.6 assists per night.  The Spurs will miss him big time but they have proven to be a very well rounded team that plays well when their stars get the night off, or take time off due to injury.This SHOULD increase guys like Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Tiago Splitter and Danny Green scoring production.  It will also open the door for guys like Nando De Colo and Patty Mills to see increased minutes.In order to replace Parker for the time being, fantasy owners should look at guys like E'Twaun Moore, C.J. Watson, Avery Bradley.  Obviously NONE of these guys can replace Tony Parker's statistics, but you need to pick a category to keep filled or find a guy who give a little bit of everything.  Don't go looking for everything from one guys, because you will be disappointed! In 7 game since the All-Star break, E'Twaun Moore has been averaging 25 minutes, adding  6.9 points and 5.9 assists while shooting 45% from beyond the arc on 3.4 attempts per night.  Those 7 games include 5 straight starts which lead to two double digit assist nights and 56 points (10 3s) in 5 starts.  The new look Orlando Magic have been playing a different kind of basketball as of late with Jameer Nelson injured and J.J. Redick in Milwaukee playing for the Bucks.  It seems Tobias Harris was the winner of the trade deadline deal!Over in Brooklyn, the Nets have been playing without Deron Williams (ankles) and Joe Johnson (foot).  C.J. Watson has been filling in quite nicely.  In 6 games since the All-Star break, Watson is averaging 12.8 points,  while shooting 50% from the field and 56% from downtown!  Only catch here is that both guys have returned, but are not both 100% there is still plenty of minutes for Watson.The Boston Celtics, without Rajon Rondo for the rest of the season, have seen a nice rotation in the backcourt that features Avery Bradley.  Yes they added Jordan Crawford at the trade deadline, but he does not run the point.  Bradley has attempted 10 shots per game in the Celtics 6 post All-Star games, shooting 48% which has lead to 11.7 points per night.  Bradley has the potential to add 5 rebounds and 5 assists on any given night as an added bonus.
