In-Season Strategy: Week 7 Start/Sit

In-Season Strategy: Week 7 Start/Sit

This article is part of our In-Season Strategy series.

Week 7 doesn't provide us with any curveballs as far as scheduling is concerned. Most teams play three or four games. Keep an eye out for players on the Celtics and Spurs, however, as those teams play just twice. Here's the full breakdown:

Murray has been solid, but he hasn't lived up to the high expectations placed on him coming into the year. Coach Gregg Popovich is only giving Murray 22.5 minutes per game. He's provided solid value as a rebounder (6.5 RPG), passer (4.1 APG) and
