If the yahoo fantasy nba iphone app is like their fantasy mlb app, you are only able to make roster moves via the app if your league is set up where you can make same day moves. It would also not penalze the non-west coast guys who might want to get to bed by 10 pm or so and may want to make a move for the next day while seeing what has transpired during the previous night's play.
Here's what yahoo has to say about it:
If you choose to configure your league to allow transactions to take effect on the day they are made, you will be able to add free agents to your roster for the current day so long as all transactions are completed no later than five minutes before the start of each player's game. None of the players involved in a move can have played or be within five minutes of their game's start time, or the transaction will not be allowed. So, for example, transactions for all players who play at 4:30 pm PT must be completed by 4:25 pm PT.
As a West Coast guy and a frequent MyFanTeams iPhone app user, I don't really see an issue here. I made plenty of add/drops last year (especially in a hyper-active league like the BOSF) via the MyFanTeams app without a problem. The first issue that comes to mind when implementing a same-day transaction rule is churning. We're already pretty loose with our rules here with a weekly limit of 10 moves. Also I like the idea of knowing which players the opposing managers will have going the next day so you can be prepared to change/alter your strategy of who to pick up, sit, start, etc. With a same-day transaction rule owners will have the ability to make last-minute adds that will not be in the spirit of fair play.
