If you're drafting within the next few days, assuming we hear nothing concrete injury-wise, how far are you bumping him down?

I have ranked in the 4th, possibly 5th now. Even if this injury is nbd, it shows that he can be injury prone. People were confidently taking him over JJJ- not sure if it's that clear cut anymore.

He went 14th in one of my leagues and went for $66 in another one. I was annoyed that I didn't grab him in any if my leagues this year but I might of dodged a bullet...

So around Christmas time if those reports are true. Plus most likely a minutes limit for a couple weeks. 

 

* Sigh *. This is some bull****.

also, the 'soreness' is in the same knee that he injured in February.

If that knee isn't fully recovered (as a extreme amateur who has had problems with MCL/meniscus injuries they are weird because they feel good until you load them up and then they get sore and swollen) obviously they ain't going to take any risks with him and if I was to GUESS I would say he'll be fine for opening night but don't be surprised to see him miss games to rest throughout the season.

On to more important matters. Does Favors get a big bump here and Hayes possibly entering the rotation?

Yes.  Favors stock has been a roller coaster. But Zion’s preseason was so good, in addition to Favors not getting much time at center, for Favors to plummet.   Now he is  back to top 50.

why are people speculating this is a serious injury? are there any links to back it up. maybe they just want to sit him out because they are playing for nothing

Josh Lloyd over on BBM is saying there is something strange going on.. apparently someone showed up on the Pelicans forum and people were being optimistic that it's just "rest", the guy said "its not rest he has a knee injury wait until you hear what it is" (paraphrasing), a few hours later they announced it was a knee injury, then the guy came back and said it'll be announced he has a torn meniscus..

ooph...

edit: ah I see someone posted the pic in this thread

okay how exactly would that user know its torn miniscus? I can believe that somehow he knew about the injury. But they are just doing tests so how exactly can he know the results ? ?

Personally I'm not planning on taking him before the 5th round now
