R.A. Dickey says he was ready to make his start on schedule Friday, but Toronto Blue Jays management decided to give him and his fellow starters extra rest.
That was the question, whether or was the team being cautious or if Dickey was still feeling groin tightness. You still have to take his word with a grain of salt as few players are ever up-front or honest about their condition. In this case, it's probably a little from Column A and a little from Column B. He should be fine to make his start,ANALYST: Howard Bender
Chandler Parsons (left ankle) is out two more games.
After a very consistent November through January, during which time Parsons scored at least 10 points in 37 of 45 games, his production became erratic in February, with Parsons failing to score 10 points in three of the eight games he played prior to suffering this ankle injury on 2/22. You should probably give Parsons a few games back in action prior to returning him to your lineup, just to make sure that he's producing at a consistent level once again. Analysis: Brad Costilo
Kris Humphries will not play Friday in Miami.
Humphries, who hasn't played since injuring his hamstring on February 25th, hasn't been much of a fantasy force when healthy. In fact, Humphries has only gotten double-digit points (11 on 2/22) once in the last month, and it's the same story with rebounds (11 on 2/7). Analysis: Brad Costilo
