The extra roster spot is for the IL so please DO NOT pick up a player for that roster spot until you have an IL eligible player. Before any player is eligible for the IL, they must miss 5 complete regular season games so no one should have an IL eligible player until the 2nd week of the season at the earliest.


IL - Does missing summer league games count. Sucks for peeps who picked up Booz and his freak accident which guarantees that he will miss the first five games of the season. Allows the manager to be competitive the first week... every cat and win even early on will matter come season's end. Just a thought.

No, missing pre-season/summer league doesn't count. I believe this is the 3rd or 4th year we've had the IL and we've had some ongoing discussions back and forth on how to handle players with already known long term injuries and we ended up settling on only regular season games only.

Agreed that it sucks for the Boozer, for example, to have to wait a week plus to get Booz on the IL, but it's better than no IL right? We last left off deciding that we need a simple and clear cut process so that's why we are where we are now.

It's certainly not a closed issue and we could have a poll or something on voting for a change as long as there is a clear cut new process suggested to follow.

Any ideas you want to vote on guys (new or old ideas)?

The IL was created for long-term injuries, being a keeper league. You don't want to lose one roster position for the year if one of your definite keepers goes down. 6 weeks, 2 months and greater, especially season-ending, not for relatively minor 2-4 week injuries, such as ankle sprains or hamstring.

The 5 consecutive games rules is very simple to follow, and can be monitored easily. At the moment, that's the only condition for someone to be put on the IL. It was placed because sometimes, Player A can be injured and the team says he is out '1 month', and he returns in one month. All is good, so why do we need the 5 games? Because another player, Player B can be out injured '1 week', but it drags onto a month. At the end of the day, they are both out 1 month, and that's the important thing. And Player B wouldn't have had the IL advantage...

So, The other argument to come up was, if Player C injures his ACL (or another serious injury), why does he still has to wait the 5 games before being put on IL. So there was a thought that you could allow a player to be put directly up to the IL after missing at least one game, but then he has to stay there for at least 2 months. Even if he comes back earlier, you must keep him on there.

I don't mind allowing the 2nd rule also, but it just makes things a little more complicated, so I prefer it to be much more simple. But it's definitely an option.

Just wondering what our keeper dates and tentative draft dates will be or if we are waiting for the NBA lockout to pan out before things are decided.

I should probably send out a league email at some point and make sure we have all the teams taken, just procrastinating because of the lockout. Keepers would be due right before the draft starts. I'm thinking that we could wait until Oct 1st to begin the draft and we would still have the draft done before the season starts, even if it starts on time, which seems a little doubtful at this point.
