There was an update today on billups saying probably mid-december or later. I dont see him doing anything at this stage except eating into J-Craw's minutes potentially.

nene is a total disaster, seems almost a bynum situation. no timetable, he will just be back when he's "healthy". even worse, sera has been doing good, and today Okafor had a decent game too.

Unless you have an IR slot, really no need to touch either at this stage. Hard to see how either gets the 25+ mins needed to help.

I'd love to hear some other people's thoughts on Nene too though. he did have some massive potential coming into the year with 15/8 with 1+ stl & blk per game.

since john wall is also injured
there's always the possibility of the wizards tanking this season

there is really no reason for the wizards to rush either wall or nene back

Any thoughts on how valuable Billups is for the remainder of the season? He's actually available in one of my leagues ;-)

Same question here, 10*13 H2H 8cat.. I'd have to drop Antawn Jamison or Jose Calderon.

Probably Aaron Brooks. 14-team (13-man roster) H2H keeper league. My team emphasizes on mostly scoring categories:
Mo Williams
Jamal Crawford
Lou Williams
Kevin Durant
Carmelo Anthony
Chris Bosh
Anderson Varejao
Brook Lopez
Chris Kaman
Ryan Anderson
JJ Redick
Dorell Wright
Aaron Brooks

I think that he's worth looking at. I went ahead and picked him up. I dropped Thabo Sefolosha so I thought it was worth the risk and that Billups had more upside. If you look at his 2010-2011 year (not counting last year cause only played 20 games) here was his averages
FG 42% FT 81% 3Pt 38% with 2/game Rebounds 1.8/game Ast 5.2/game Stl 1/game TO 2.4/game
16PPG

of course e was playing around 30 min/game and he won't get that much with the clippers...maybe around low 20's I would guess. plus he's comin off an injury so we can't really be sure. for me I needed 3pts an assists and with a role coming off the bench I would think that he help bump me up in that. of course just my opinion :p
