My player in basketball was a late scratch, yahoo should allow to switch to another player in later game if they never touch court

I second and somewhat would like to see a function to switch out any player at anytime, w/ the stipulation that you are giving up that roster slot and half your salary on the player still. eg:
You have 8 players drafted. Lebron is playing a 7:00 game. It's 7:45 and he hasn't played, or has just gone down w/ an injury on 5 points. You can forfit hit 5 points, still have him taking up that spot in your lineup, however his salary drops to half of what it was (he costs $27 now and receives an automatic 0). You now can switch out your later players and use that remaining salary. I know it sounds kind of complicated, but it would be the fairest way to do this I believe.
You could also just keep players unlocked until their first in game action, I don't really see how that could be taken advantage of.
