Mike Dunleavy Breaks Thumb, Out Indefinitely

Indiana Pacers shooting guard Mike Dunleavy has suffered a broken right thumb and is out indefinitely. If he's forced to undergo surgery, it's likely he misses the rest of the regular season.

The Breakdown
Fantasy owners were already dropping Dunleavy as he'd struggled of late. Now that he's hurt, there's no reason for anyone to keep him on their roster. Brandon Rush appears to be the main beneficiary from the injury as he was inserted into the starting line up and played 34 minutes. Paul George, though, was the more effective player in last night's game against the Pistons although he played just 22 minutes. Both are strong speculative additions, but we may have to lean toward picking up Rush if he's going to start and play over 30 minutes a night.
