In-Season Strategy: Injury Beneficiaries
In-Season Strategy: Injury Beneficiaries

This article is part of our In-Season Strategy series.

Nick Whalen takes a look at which players will benefit in the wake of more injuries to Fantasy-relevant players.

Even in an era where more emphasis than ever is placed on player health and rehabilitation, the NBA hasn't been immune to major injuries. At present, the league is without -- among others -- a two-time MVP, a 70-point scorer, and two of the more productive forwards in the Western Conference.

Of course, the rampant injuries have been a nightmare for Fantasy owners, but as key players hit the shelf, opportunities open up for others to step into larger roles. While perhaps it's a bit tactless to suggest anyone truly benefits from an injury, in the cutthroat world of Fantasy basketball, there's no time to mourn the loss of a major contributor.
