Read on for weekly rankings


You're in a weekly transaction league and you need to decide by Monday evening who your starting lineup will be for the week. Should you consider sitting usual impact starters DeMar DeRozan or Zach LaVine? Or perhaps starting someone like Goran Dragic or Caris LeVert who might generally be on your bench or even your waiver wire?

As pointed out in this week's Forecaster article, most teams (18) play four times this week while 10 play three times and two play twice. Every Spurs and Bulls player is on the potentially sittable list this week as a result.

LeVert is on the potentially startable list both due to the Nets' schedule and the ending of Kyrie Irving's season (shoulder). Irving was one of the most productive players in the NBA this season when he was on the court, and he'll now spend the rest of this season and offseason trying to get healthy for next season's work with Kevin Durant.

There are several other players on this list due to injury concerns, most prominently top-10 players Karl-Anthony Towns and Damian Lillard, who are both listed as "expected to miss several games" but with no clear timetable as to their return. They would obviously be very hard to sit, so pay attention to the last updates before Monday's roster freeze before you make your decisions on them. Check out the list of guys that stood out in one direction or the other below, and for more detail see the complete rankings.
