EricBledsoe should be OUT not INJ
He is not injured but listed as INJ. He should be be listed as Out or NA. INJ designation should not be used for non-injured player even if they are projected to miss more than 7 days.
Yahoo rules stipulate INJ tag is given to players who are "projected to miss more than 7 days". O is for players who are "projected miss less than 7 days". Since you're (Yahoo) not following your own rules in giving him the INJ tag how do you explain the O? In your guidelines there's nothing separating those two tags except the projected duration... Nowhere does it say anything about missing time specifically due to injuries. Inexplicable. There's basically nothing backing up your decision of tagging Bledsoe with O. Making a mockery of the game.

Whatever the designation, it shouldn't handcuff a fantasy roster spot because he was asked to leave.

Not available is not available regardless of the reason. Consistency would be to replace the IL designation with NA. Bledsoe is NA.

CONSISTENCY! Portis INJ for a suspension, last year Jrue Holiday INJ while he took time to be with his family.....come on. Bledsoe this year INJ for being a terrible teammate. Just be consistent! If you make exceptions for extenuating/one off situations this should be no different.

Why are other players like Bobby Ports given the INJ designation? It should be INJ because he is missing an extended period of time.
