Hello Sports City, let’s start this blog of with my condolences to Amare Stoudemire and his family for the loss of his brother last night. With that being said Amare will miss tonights game as he has flown back to Florida to be with his family. Also in the breaking news department Kevin Love has been suspended 2 games for his stomp on Luis Scola on Saturday Night so make sure you don’t have him in your lineups the next couple of nights. We have 2 stars out, so I’m going to give you 4 players to replace them with.
1. Spencer Hawes- We talked about him on the show Thursday, he did indeed come back Saturday with a 14 point 5 rebound and 1 block night. This guy was hot before he got hurt so I recommend a pick up here.
2. Grevis Vasquez- He has been averaging 13 points and 7 assists while starting for the injured Jarrett Jack.
3. Jeremy Lin- Lin had 25 points 7 assists and 5 rebounds Saturday in his first start with the Knicks. The Knicks point guard position has been terrible as of late so Lin is getting the opportunity to start again tonight and for the foreseeable future. So I would give him a look.
4. Nikola Pekovic- With Darko Milicic out Pekovic has been averaging 17 points and 7 rebounds. He should pick that up a little more the next 2 games with Kevin Love suspended.
That’s what I got for today Sports City. I will be back tomorrow with some of the top performers from tonights games.
