UPDATES & NEWS
Arron Afflalo will miss the rest of the regular season because of his hamstring injury. Team officials say Afflalo's hamstring strain will be treated with rest and physical therapy.
Orlando's season has been over for a long time, so there's no reason for Affalo to aggravate the injury by playing. This just gives the green light to play Mo Harkless even more. Harkless is a must start in standard leagues and can be safely used when his salary is in the mid to mid-high range at daily sites.ANALYST:
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
