James Van Riemsdyk Breaks Hand

SCOUT ANALYST JOHN BOLLMAN'S TAKE

James Van Riemsdyk broke his hand last night while trying to block a shot. He is expected to miss multiple weeks. He could be out for at least the rest of the regular season and maybe even the postseason. He was projected as the 42nd best fantasy center for the rest of the season before his injury. The line could shift slightly due to his absence but I wouldn’t expect anything significant.

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

Based on average projected fantasy points, James van Riemsdyk is the #38 fantasy left wing with an average of 1.7 fantasy points per game. But with him projected to play just 1 games in you will need to wait on him to deliver value. In 66 games this season he has averaged 1.65 which ranks him as the #38 left wing based on average.
