With almost every fantasy sport comes injuries. Athletes are going to get hurt and miss time. There's not a way around that.
For our fantasy basketball game, you'll see four different injury tags:
Game-Time Decision (GTD) - The player has a 50/50 chance of playing
Day-to-Day (D2D) - The player probably won't play in the upcoming game
Out - The player won't play and could miss about a week
IR - The player is out indefinitely or for the remainder of the season
In the General Settings of the mobile app, the commish has two injury options regarding your league's Injured Reserve.
Of course, any player with an IR tag can always go into an IR spot. We give commissioners the option of allowing day-to-day players on IR along with out:
What happens if I select an injured player?
If a user selects a game where the NBA player had zero minutes played, Sleeper will unlock that selection once that specific game is complete. This gives you the option to put in a new player or select an upcoming game.
If neither is available, you'd get the player's previous game of the week for that NBA player.
