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 are available, you get the team's final game of the week for that NBA player, even if a game pick selection was not made.

We do NOT revert to the player's previous game.
