I should of known that this season was going to be a bust when Harden said “F it” I’m going to the strip club with no mask right before the season started. 

The bubble won’t happen, this is all on the players. Think about this , you have 30 teams, players coaches staff trainers, those are the close contacts, then you have the family. Family is a high risk

It's a crapshoot now tbh. I have 3 players from the Grizzlies (not playing cause of the TWolves) and Golden State (not playing cause of Phoenix) who are missing games today, and in a H2H league, that's huge. This isn't even stuff you can predict or do anything to account for tbh. Sucks, but I guess that's just how this season'll play out.

Arent the Suns not playing cause of the Wizards..?

I knew this season would be a challenge, but this is becoming a disaster.

Anyone know how theyll make up all these games?? Are they just gonna shorten the season more? Or are some teams gonna have 5-6 game weeks later in the season?

and the warriors are not playing cause of the suns so is indiana (all because of the wizards)...you can see where this is going, **** is going to spiral out next week or the week after and it could happen that theres like less then 10 nba games in the week

probably the latter option, second half of the schedule is going to be crazy (and i hope in the bubble)

Problem is when will they make up the games? Teams can’t be playing 5-6 games a week to Make up? And if they do then stars will be sitting out more often so we won’t even get those games back fantasy wise anyway

Yeah with KAT getting it now, I don’t even care if I win or lose at this point. No trash talk in my league anymore, no bragging rights. Just try to have fun cause this season is 100% about luck.

Yea, but we’re only at Week 4. They’ve put in more strict regulations, so we should see some improvement.

Also, with the Reg season being 17 weeks long, we still have 3 months to go guys. It’ll be ok.

I don't wish ill on any players and this seems to balance out on other teams more than not, but I have lost 17 games vs. my opponent's 5.  This may not be the official vent and rant thread but someone else has got to be in the same boat here...

At this point I feel there's gonna be an extra week or two with all the postponed games. Fantasy-wise, that's a nightmare for H2H. Not so much for roto though.

I’m in the same boat. It really sucks, but really what can we do?

Agreed. But it was stated that, this season would be the worst time to play H2H.

Oh totally, but I can imagine it wouldn't have stopped some from trying that anyway (like my friends and I) lol. 

We really thought ahead in a big money league and had a secondary roto one just so we can fall back on that when the main H2H one goes bad. And from the looks of it, it's definitely headed that way...

My main league is currently brainstorming a way to navigate thru this clusterfuk of a season lol.


Would setting a games limit for the week help mitigate some of these postponements/covid issues? 

 

Like max 35 games a wk per team in H2h. No doubt you’ll have ppl missing games but it can prevent situations like where a depleted team who would only have like 30 games that week vs a more healthier team with like 45-50 games. I rather manage my 30 vs 35 then 30 vs 45-50 games per say.

I tried this, but unfortunately I can’t find where or it’s not allowed in certain league types after drafting.
