Andrew Bogut injured

The anticipated debut of Andrew Bogut and Charlie Villanueva for the Bucks frontcourt will have to wait. Andrew Bogut will be out 6-8 weeks due to a lower left leg sprain, an injury suffered on Saturday when Bogut banged his leg into Steve Blake’s knee during a team scrimmage. The injury was initially thought not to be serious, however, upon further evaluation by the team doctor, it was decided that Bogut would require rehabilitation for the injury.

Michael Redd

Round 3, Pick 9: Michael Redd, SG, Milwaukee Bucks

Quick, who was the 9th leading scorer in the NBA last year? If you guessed Michael Redd, I would say that you are part of the minority. Most people would not have guessed that Michael Redd averaged more points (25.4 points/game) than Ray Allen (25.1 points) and Vince Carter (24.2 points/game), a couple of shooting guards that were drafted before Redd in most, if not all, fantasy basketball drafts last season.

Milwaukee is not exactly a media hotbed and Michael Redd’s game matches the city’s calm.  He is like a gunfighter entering a saloon in the Old West where everyone just watches him and they know that he is a shooter… and a darn good one.

Description>“This is 10% luck, 20% skill. 15% concentrated power of will. 5% pleasure, 50% pain, and 100% reason to remember the name.” Lyrics to “Remember the Name” by Fort Minor

Every drafted player strives to make a name for themselves. It takes concentrated effort and sacrifice; sometimes we see results right away. Other times a player is still trying to learn the ropes a couple of years into their career. In basketball, finding these young and rising stars just before they hit the big time is a vital edge in bringing home the fantasy glory. Welcome to the first edition of a new feature here on Dropping Dimes. In “3-2-1 Impact,” comparisons between a third year player, a second year player and a rookie are forged. Fantasy impact takes the spotlight. Hopefully by season’s end, your league mates will have all the reason to remember your name…because it will be engraved in gold on your trophy!
