Just a couple of weeks left in the regular season, as we all limp towards the finish line with injuries. I have reached a point where I am considering dumping legitimate keepers that can't stay healthy in order to try to salvage things down the stretch. Fortunately for me, I am pretty locked in scoring (first) and rebounding (last), so I can really pinpoint the other categories. Unfortunately, I still need someone who can pass the ball and block shots. Nene fits the bill for me to some extent, but he hasn't played the last four games.
