An MRI revealed that Thaddeus Young suffered a Grade-1 hamstring strain and he is expected to miss a minimum of three weeks.
Reports from earlier today suggested he might have suffered a complete tear -- also known as a Grade-3 strain -- and this news shouldn't come as a big shock to his owners. Young is in the midst of a career season with career highs in boards, assists, blocks and steals and the Sixers are going to have a tough time replacing his 35.5 minutes per game. Spencer Hawes should be considered a must-own player while Dorell Wright and Lavoy Allen could also be called upon to fill the void, though Doug Collins will mix and match depending on matchups. Young owners in standard leagues can cut him in some situations.
