We’re heading into week ten of the fantasy basketball season. Friday we learned Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook would be out until at least the All-Star break after having his third knee surgery this season. Later in the day we discovered Atlanta Hawks Center Al Horford would miss the rest of the regular season after tearing his pectoral muscle.

Let’s begin with the point guards.
D.J. Augustin, PG
Avery Bradley, PG
Mario Chalmers, PG
Let’s move onto the centers.
Larry Sanders C
Robin Lopez C
