Deandre Ayton 2019-2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

God damn bum, never drafting him again. Omg... I think I read somewhere pairing him with AD is the best strategy this year and I cant even make to playoff in our 12 player h2h league. Smfh

So who is the pick up? Baynes and Saric? 

I grabbed Baynes right away but both players may be valuable.

Baynes is probably the add here, but I'm gonna hold off for now - I don't have anyone to drop, unfortunately.  I can't see Saric banging with bigs - The Suns are gonna get Whiteside twice, BroLo and likely Zingis, so they'll need Baynes' size to fill in for Ayton.

Ayton owners should be praying it's just a sprained ankle and not something like an Achilles injury; the upside is that the Suns have a slow week next week, so it's not the worst if he misses about 2 weeks or so (my PO is Week 22, so I suppose if anyone's is earlier, that's bad news either way).  And I highly doubt the Suns rush back their prized sophomore, since they've got nothing to play for.

I know people here frown upon posters complaining about the injuries to their teams, but this has been ridiculous lately.

JJJ

Clarke

Redick

Oubre

Ayton

Lillard (who thankfully is coming back)

Garland (18 team league, he is a core part of my team)

Yes injuries are part of fantasy, but if you are unlucky then it's really out of your control. It just makes me bitter that I had a potent team when healthy and now I am clinging to the 8th spot in my league and might not make it in at all. If I do, I don't like my chances. My goodness what a crazy few weeks it has been.

I don't mind if Ayton rests for 1-2 weeks I just need him for the playoffs!!!

 

I'm in playoffs right now, so this sucks. My only chance is if Embiid gets cleared on Thursday and I can do a switch

FWIW suns schedule sucks before playoffs

3-2-3 including this week. Then 4-4 for 2and and 3rd of playoffs for people that start playoffs Week 22.

Those PED’s will do that. Sucks for you owners, to have to weather his early season suspension - and now this right when it’s about to be playoff time.

good luck bro’s

He seems upbeat in this video like without a care in the world lol

Usually teams provide injury updates on game days (unless it’s major) and they don’t play until Friday so hopefully we don’t hear anything til Friday

I'd be upbeat too if I could make millions siting on the IL and not have to throw my body around playing for the garbage suns

Wait for the MRI.

Upbeat doesn’t mean anything. Isaac was upbeat before the MRI, so was WCJ.

We all know what happened to both of them afterwards.

lol for real.  I get it, these are athletes and they are competitive and want to play and they do a lot outside of the court but at the end of the day, it's a job for them and getting paid 10000x the average salary of a human and not have to clock in to work for a company you hate would make me smile too lol

As soon as the MRI was called I immediately thought of Isaac too. Dude was talking like it was nothing and he'd be back soon. Now people get offended in here if you even mention he's back on the court practicing again.

Plus, they feel pain and swelling and in that state it is difficult for a player to know what it is. They know it pains and it is swollen. Its only the devastating injuries where things are in the wrong place where they know they're ******.

I think its becoming safe to assume that the MRI did not return much good news. If there was nothing would we still be waiting a full day after the MRI to obtain a status update? Likely second opinions are being obtained.
