Danilo Gallinari LAC – Sit ‘Em
Gallinari was out for Tuesday’s game against the Spurs due to a strained left glute. He fell midway through the second quarter of Sunday’s game and was unable to return. “I can barely walk,” Gallinari said after the game. “I’ve been having pain the past two or three games and now it’s getting to a point where I’m having problems walking, so I’ve got to take care of it.” The Inside Injuries algorithm is calculating a grade 1 strain and a three week Optimal Recovery Time, so Gallinari is not going to be a healthy start until at least Week 7.
Lou Williams LAC – Start ‘Em
With Gallinari out with a strained left glute, Lou Williams should see a significant uptick in usage this week. He was phenomenal in the second half of Sunday’s game, scoring 18 of his 22 points after halftime. Gallinari didn’t play at all in the second half, giving Williams the spotlight. If this streak continues, Fantasy owners should have Williams in their lineups at all times.
Domantas Sabonis IND – Sit ‘Em
Sabonis was ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Pelicans with a right calf contusion. He popped up on Monday’s injury report and that was the first we had heard of the injury. He has had a great first few weeks, but this injury could be a result of overuse. Myles Turner was out with a concussion and Sabonis filled the hole nicely, but the extra use could have worn him out. Muscle injuries are generally tricky to recover from, so Sabonis isn’t going to be a healthy starter for at least a week.
Allen Crabbe BRO – Start’ Em
Allen Crabbe moved into the starting lineup on Monday and put up 15 points in the 23 minutes he played. He had four fouls, which explains the low minutes, but he was able to make the most of his time. The Nets have three more games on the schedule in Week 4, so Crabbe has an incredible opportunity. With both Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (hip) and Trevor Booker (back) both injured, the floor is open for Crabbe to do big things.
Hassan Whiteside MIA – Sit ‘Em
According to the Inside Injuries algorithm, Hassan Whiteside is still a High Injury Risk and his Health Performance is Below Average coming off his knee injury. These poor numbers were reflected in Monday’s loss to the Warriors w Whiteside hit just 1-of-9 shots for three points, six boards, and a block in 16 minutes of play. He was benched just a few minutes into the second half. While it didn’t appear to be an aggravation that bothered, it was obvious in his body language and play that he just isn’t 100 percent. He’s a risky Fantasy option for Week 4.
