Dear RotoRob: Cut the Truth?
Is Chris Webber a better bet than either Paul Pierce or Tyrus Thomas?
I’m in the semifinals of the playoffs and am debating whether to cut Paul Pierce and/or Tyrus Thomas.’
Some of the available players on the waiver wire are: Chris Webber, Brad Miller, J.R. Smith, Gerald Green, Chuck Hayes, Jason Hart, Outlaw/Jamaal Magloire and Chris Kaman.
I’m in a daily league; think any of those guys are worth swapping in?
Doc Rivers says he still figures Pierce will be back before the season ends – even as soon as Tuesday night. See if he plays Tuesday. If he does, keep him. If he doesn’t, drop him and grab either Webber or Green.
I am in need of better FT percentage and FG percentage while trying to improve my blocks and rebounds as well.
My current crew:
G — Josh Smith, Kobe Bryant, Stephon Marbury, Deron Williams
F — David Lee, AK-47, Boris Diaw, David West
C — Drew Gooden, Erick Dampier
Res — Shareef Abdur-Rahim and Brad Miller
I have to make a pickup for Lee. Who should I scoop up for the rest of the season?
F Tyrus Thomas (not starting and Andres Nocioni is coming back), or F/C Etan Thomas (finally got his starting gig back).
Please hit me with the wisdom.
The decision is fairly obvious — one is starting and the other is either hot or cold…and he is cold more than hot. I don’t think either is great to start, but I’d pick up Etan for a playoff run.
