In addition to fantasy football and rotisserie baseball, I used to play fantasy basketball. Our league only lasted a year (we made the rules somewhat complicated with daily player substitutions) and there were only 6 of us. When I was playing, info like the below from ESPN would have been awesome to know and maybe would have led to a win for me. Sucks for the Magic players though.
A Magic spokesman said Jameer Nelson and J.J. Redick took a flight back to Orlando before Saturday’s game at Milwaukee because of the illness. Dwight Howard and Mickael Pietrus came back before the team’s game at Detroit on Friday night.
The Magic have won six straight games. They still managed to beat Detroit despite playing short-handed. During a win at Chicago on Wednesday, Pietrus vomited in the hallway at one point in the first half.
If the virus is noro, that hallway vomiting event might have been the tigger for some of the other ill players. And maybe for some Chicago or other visiting teams as well if the vomit wasn’t cleaned up well.
