Listing players as injured rather than out or GTD
For some reason, Bogdan Bogdanovic is listed as Out rather than injured even after the Kings said he'd miss 4 to 6 weeks. That prevents users from placing him in an IL slot and adding a replacement.

Or at least allow commissioners to enable or disable a setting that allows OUT to be allowed on the IR. Let the league decide how to play or not, give us some flexibility! With how much load management is going on in real life, it is ruing fantasy - this would be a way to have users be more engaged to use their IR not the other way around.

How about Kevin Love and Elfrid Payton? They will surely miss a lot of games. Please put them in the injured list as well.

How are Rondo and Ingram considered injured when they did not even get beat up by CP3?
Just some petting and patting but no way should they be considered on the IL.
What about Kevin Knox? He's officially injured for the next few weeks and not on the IL?
There must be a reliable source you need to reference such as Rotoworld or NBA to confirm whether or not they are injured.
Anyways, take Rondo & Ingram off IL as that's simply wrong.

I just lost my fantasy week holding Howard and Barton. I have 2 IL slots and couldnt use either due to injury ambiguity. Now Howard is not traveling with team on 5 game roadtrip and Barton is out indefinitely. Injury criteria should be 3 days not 7. I also like IL+ spot idea

The easy fix here is to create an IL+ option for basketball, any player marked as Out, GTD, NA or IL could be put into this....

This has become so frustrating I'm ready to start using ESPN fantasy after this year if they can't straighten out something simple is unfair to players to be inconsistent like this!!!

Isaiah Thomas as well!

He’s out for 4-6 weeks after the surgery, according to yahoo definition, IL is for anyone who’s expected to be out for more than 1 week. He should definitely be on IL by now, to allow owner to pick up waiver players before the season!

Either get people on IL in a more timely fashion or allow us to put players list as OUT on the IL similar to Yahoo Fantasy NFL. Injuries are annoying as **** in the NBA, any help we can have to manage our rosters while players are injured is a plus.

True. He even had surgery, so status should be clear INJ. Whats wrong here?
