Some leagues are already in the playoffs, many others are winding down the last three weeks of regular season towards that end. If you are playing fantasy basketball, you are well aware of the barrage of injuries that have peaked this past week in the Association. I have personally seen a comfortable margin in first place turn into a nightmare situation of trying to salvage even a playoff spot. I have no fewer that seven players that are either missing games, or are a threat to miss several. What makes things worst is the injuries are more of the day to day variety, so disabling the players are not an option. Lets take a look at the walking wounded.
It's not exactly the midway point in the season, but the All-Star break is as good time at time as any for teams across the country... and us to evaulate. We continue our swing through the Association, checking in on each Division. Who is having a break out season? What rookies are fantasy worthy? Who may be on the block and possibly moved by the trade deadline? We continue with the Southeast Division.
As we roll into the 2012-'13 NBA season, we're going to take you through an overview of each of the six divisions. Who are key newcomers? Who are notable for your fantasy team? Last season was brutal with a late and sudden December start to an abbreviated season. We tip off with the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference, home of the NBA defending champion Miami Heat.
As we play out the final weeks of the 2011-'12 NBA season, we take a look at each franchise. Who emerged, what went wrong, what lies ahead. A look at post season chances, long term potential and upgrades possible in this summer's NBA draft. We continue in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference with the Atlanta Hawks.
