    I gave it everything that I had, but my season is now done. Every player on my team had a major injury this season except Lilliard. He is the only player left on my team that I originally drafted.

    Good luck to all in the playoffs!!

    I only have six of my original players still on the squad.....I barely remember who I let go due to injury other than D. Rose. I will have to get through these playoffs with a starting back court of Andre Miller, Tony Snell, Shaun Livingston and DJ Augustin... my only big name guard is Jamal Crawford and he has missed the last 2 weeks and is not expected to be before the end of this week.

    I have three: Duncan, Hibbert & Meeks. Though, I'm not sure Meeks counts since I dropped him and picked him back up after his injury.

    This was a season I wish I could forget

    the most difficult thing at this stage of the season is to figure out how to react to the DNP-Coach decisions. It seems like they start earlier with every season (I remember that we decided to start the fantasy playoffs a week earlier because the final week was ruined because the star players didn't attend the court).

    Just when I thought I had a possible chance to make a move from the 7th seed and possibly win this thing....I just found out that my leading scorer and three point threat Klay Thompson will be down for 7-10 days...which means he is probably out for the first round of the playoffs and probably me too.

    I watched the Warriors/Lakers game last night and didn't even see the ankle injury. I had already released Jamal Crawford last night because it is believed he will be out another two weeks.

    Yeah, it's very hard to account for the late season DNP bug. Teams change dramatically during the playoffs. No player appears to be sacred.

    Denver sat 3 of their starters last night in Faried, Lawson and Gallinari and they are no where near the playoff bubble....but they do have the potential 8th pick in the lotto and couple more wins could move them to 10th or 11th........

    Teams should get fined for "resting" players for no apparent reason. This isn't freakin' kindergarten where they need nap time.

    That's why Silver is looking at the schedule. Too many games, too many back to backs, too many 4 in 5 days...

    I think the league tried to do that to Pop a short while back. He just laughed it off and won another title.

    Well, the season started on October 4th and will end on April 15th. That is a total of 194 days to play 82 games. Teams could play every other day and there still would be 31 days left over. It wouldn't be too hard to avoid back-to-backs if that was the main goal.

    Correct me if I am wrong but I don't recall seeing any games where a team plays a back to back at home...or is that my imagination? Normally they are hopping a plane after a home game and heading to another city... case in point, the Pistons playing at home tonight and heading to Philly to play tomorrow...and the Clippers playing at home tonight and flying to Sacramento to play the Kings tomorrow night.....or even the Grizzlies playing at home last night and on to Detroit tonight....whats the point? To prevent the so-so teams from getting a two game win streak?

    I think you're right. I suspect it's more likely that way to prevent fan fatigue.

    Good point. Imagine if you had to watch Josh Smith 4 times in a 5-day span.
