As the NBA season begins to wind towards playoffs, let’s take a look at the top 20 point guards. The injury to Chris Paul has opened the door for some other young guards to make a lot of noise in the fantasy world, and some of the major trades that went down could impact the roles some of these guards are asked to play for their teams.
For Steve Nash owners, Amar'e Stoudemire staying in Phoenix was a sigh or relief. However, the subtractions of Tyrus Thomas and John Salmons in Chicago will put Derrick Rose into more of a scoring role for the Bulls. Kevin Martin leaving Sacramento could only improve the fantasy impact of rookie Tyreke Evans as well.
