Wyoming’s Josh Allen is the most divisive option because he’s a ball of untapped potential coupled with inconsistent performances. Either he’s viewed as a physical marvel with all of the tools to excel, or he’s belittled due to erratic accuracy, decision-making and failing to perform against top competition. Reality falls somewhere in between those two points.
Most fantasy managers had checked out by then, of course, but Snell has long been of interest to the Rays and myriad statistical followers for his ability to miss bats, and that final day of last season was the first time in 43 career outings he pitched more than four innings in a game and escaped sans a free pass.
Cousins was in fact relocating to a new house in Las Vegas, a source told Marc J. Spears of ESPN’s The Undefeated on Monday. Cousins had been rehabilitating in Los Angeles after a season-ending Achilles injury he suffered in late January.
Adding to the confusion, Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said before Saturday’s Game 1 win that Cousins had not been cleared to fly and would not be in attendance.
“We would love for him to be here because he’s been an integral part of this,” Gentry said, according to The Times-Picayune. “I feel really bad for him because he’s been great for us.”
Cousins is hoping to join the Pelicans at one of their games this postseason, but it will be tough with his rehab, the source told Spears.
Cousins and Anthony Davis were on pace to become the first teammates ever to each average 25 points and 10 rebounds per game for a season when Cousins went down Jan. 26.
Pressed if there was any chance he could return earlier than a potential first-round Game 7, Smart left open the possibility.
“Like I said, we’re optimistic, but we’re not going to rush anything,” he said. “We’re going to take it slow. So I think I have another doctor’s appointment, a checkup, in the next two weeks. We’ll see what [the doctor] says. If she clears us to be able to start a little bit earlier, then we might. But as of right now, Game 7 [or the] second round is the [goal].”
