Injuries change the makeup of a team, and the series. And our picks.
The Raptors lost Game 3 and are facing elimination Sunday. I said I am going to pick Ibaka but he seems focused on stopping James and that does not translate to fantasy points. On the other hand, Valanciunas seems to be playing better this series and especially without the injured Lowry. Valanciunas for Sunday.
Monday, I originally had Johnson, but I have to accept that this is never his series. Without the injured Hill, Mack seems to be the better choice, and he gets my pick.
Of course, stay tuned for injury updates here in the comments and the NBA news on the right panel of this blog. If Lowry and Hill play, we surely are changing our picks, even if it's the last minute before tipoff.
