DanH ... in your wealth of data analytics (if can show the numbers that would be great), who has the most positive impact of our top 10 players?

It's hardly my wealth, these are publicly available numbers. But, for example, if you buy PIPM as the best RAPM approximate for impact right now, it goes (ordered on a per-minute basis, total wins added also shown):

Siakam +3.19, 6.8 wins
Lowry +2.83, 6.5
Gasol +2.19, 3.0
OG +1.36, 4.6
FVV +1.11, 3.9
Boucher +0.76, 1.5
Powell +0.47, 2.4
Davis +0.39, 2.0
RHJ -0.30, 1.4
Ibaka -0.33, 1.8
Thomas -1.94, 0.1
McCaw -2.70, -0.2

But that's just impact, guys like Ibaka and Powell have provided additional value through production (as have Siakam and Lowry and FVV of course). And other players have provided value just by being available to play minutes, like even below average impact (negative numbers mean below average, not actively harmful) can be of value to fill out 48 minutes and 82 games. RHJ is a great example of that. McCaw is a great example of how even that is sometimes not enough, and his lack of production is pretty well known. 

For production I like to look at win shares, it's pretty decent, though it has its flaws. Unlike impact, though, we do have a bunch of ways to look at production. So, win shares is a good catch all, but you can also grab individual ORTG vs usage, PER as evaluators of raw production that are half decent at describing production even if they aren't great at capturing a player's overall value.

Thanks Dan .. aligns pretty well to what we have been seeing

New Player Note Wed, Mar 11

Nick Nurse said that Norman Powell's sprained left ankle "isn't too serious," and there's a chance he'll be able to play on Saturday against the Pistons.

Advice: Powell hurt his ankle during Monday's game, but with the Raptors scheduled for a five-day break between games this week, Powell might not miss any additional floor time. We should get another few updates in the intervening days leading up to Saturday's tip, but things are moving in a positive direction here, so Powell is someone to think about grabbing if he got panic-cut in your league.

Good news about Powell's injury. I still expect him to miss a full week if not more given how the team manages injuries. There's also no need to rush him to play against the Pistons with FVV likely back.

And now that the season has been suspended, he will have plenty of time to rehab. I just hope none of our players got the virus from Gobert. OG should be tested first.

I'm sure everyone will be tested.

if this is the end, not only we'll be the last champions ever, but powell will be the last player of the week in the east ever. Good times, except for the end of the world part 🙂

oh please. The world will not end. In fact, I predict there will be a shortened season and proper playoffs.

Oh, but it will - that's a fact. Only the timing is debatable - at most we have a few billion years left. At most 🙂
