Need Fantasy help on Pekovic 

Post#1 » by Dominater » Mon Jan 7, 2013 12:22 pm

Hey guys, Bulls fan here I come in peace. Need a little help if anybody knows anything. My fantasy league isnt like most where lineups are changed daily. Mine are set monday for the entire week. I have a feeling that Pek is going to have a monster week if he plays. Does anybody here know his status moving forward? I really dont wanna bench him if theres a good chance he'll play.

Any info is appreciated. Thanks

I haven't heard he isn't playing. His hip injury looked pretty minor during the game. He was on the bike and stayed suited on the bench.

he said that it was pretty minor, i'd expect him to play and not be significantly affected by it.

There's this:
Timberwolves PR ‏@Twolves_PR
Injury Update: #Twolves Ricky Rubio is practicing today & expected to play Tue. Nikola Pekovic did not practice (hip strain) & is day-to-day


and then there's this:
Kent Youngblood ‏@BloodStrib
Pek, Rubio expected to play Tuesday, according to Kahn.


So there you go. Clear as mud.

If you're having fantasies about Pekovic, I'm not sure what I can say to help you other than that meat is a good choice for a first date meal.

And act like you don't want it. He's all about the hard to get.

...

My guess is, with Love out and Stiemsma in the doghouse that Pekovic is a good choice to start this week. There is a risk, but if he's able to play he'll get all the time in the post that he wants.

Thanks for the info guys. With Love out this guy should be a monster. The other night 21 and 15 in only 22 mins because of that injury. Best kept secret in the NBA

Pek doesn't stay injured. His body heals at 3x the speed of an ordinary man.

Put it this way, if eating flesh (defeated opponents, ribeye steaks, dead babies, etc.) was an official stat Pek would average a triple double every night.

“@Twolves_PR: Pek tells the media he will play tonight.”

Come on, we all know Pek only eats LIVE babies.

Short of Superman re-imprisoning him into the Phantom Zone, I think he'll play this week.
