Please Allow League Owners to Declare Player's Injury Status or Yahoo Should Make Quicker Determination of Injury Status
Please allow league owners to declare player's injury status or Yahoo should make a quicker determination of the player's injury status. When a player is "Out", allow the team managers to place their players on "IL" so they can pick up additional player(s). Having to wait for Yahoo administrators to make the decision of player's eligibility may possibly delay potential points or affect outcome of scoring and league standing.
Thank you for your consideration.
Andre Drummond has been out for 4 games (3 DNP/1 Postponed) however he is still listed as "Out" and not "INJ". You are costing me matchups with his Tom Foolery. Please check yourself before you reck yourself. This is easy. Figure it out Yahoo.

The speed of injury status getting added to players is really inconsistent and one of the major things that bugs me about yahoo fantasy Basketball.
Overall the yahoo fantasy bball site is quite good but either injured players need to be updated more accurately/quickly or give the power to league commish to assign a player with INJ status for a particular league.
Two examples so far this year are Kyle Kuzma (who has been injured since the world cup) and Dwight Powell (who has been injured since the start of the preseason and ruled out for at least the first two games of regular season) - it's super frustrating when examples like this exist yet there is nothing I can do as a manager or commish to fix it 😔

In fantasy basketball, both Dwight Powell and Kevin Huerter should receive INJ tag, both of them have been out for 7+ days due to injury. This is how you define INJ: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN28136.html
