It sucks but the NBA made the right call. Adam Silver announced Wednesday night that the league will suspend games until further notice, at least until it has determined the next steps to combat COVID-19. Two players, namely Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, were tested positive for the virus. Both play for the Utah Jazz.
Gobert has tested positive on Wednesday night while Mitchell confirmed that he has contracted the virus on Thursday, on his Instagram page.

I hope you logged early to check out the injury news before the Nets-Sixers game and made the necessary adjustment. Well, without Ben Simmons, that pretty much made Joel Embiid a must-roster and he did not disappoint. Here's a recap of my picks for Feb. 20.
Joel, Joel, Joel. Embiid took advantage of Simmons absence and brutalized Brooklyn. JoJo finished with 39 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks.
Same thing with Bam Adebayo. History repeated itself with Bam torching the Read More
It's a sad day for the NBA right now with the passing of the legendary Kobe Bryant. As someone who has followed the guy's career-- the peaks, the valleys, and everything in between-- there are no words to describe what happened. It's just tragic.

A six-game slate on Sunday provides us with a lot of options but you need to give it a second thought before you decide to tap the services of any of these players.
1.) Luka Doncic, PG, Mavericks
Doncic possibly came up with the best game of his career against LeBron James and the Lakers but he did not come out unscathed on that one.
While he did register an insane 31-13-15 outing, he needed stitches after he was hit by the head. The Mavs did not rule him out Sunday versus Cleveland (for now) but Read More
For those who bleed stats, not just Damian Lillard's 50-point outburst in Game 5, check these 7 insane numbers to get you through the day:
1.) It's not the playoffs without Timmy or Stockton.

It's the first NBA playoffs without LeBron James since his rookie year but a fact that many overlooked is that Tim Duncan and John Stockton never missed the playoffs in 19 NBA seasons.
The longest streak of active players who have not missed the playoffs is James Harden (13 Read More
Best Value Picks For NBA DFS Thursday-- Feb. 28, 2019
DeMarcus Cousins, C, Golden State Warriors
Boogie did not play versus Miami to rest but has been playing really well lately. He had four consecutive double-doubles culminating in a 24-11-3 performance with a steal and three blocks in Charlotte. He is beginning to show the potential to cough up 50 FP nights so I'm scooping him up before his salary gets really high.
Donovan Mitchell, SG, Utah Jazz
