Word came down on Tuesday afternoon that we were more or less expecting: Blake Griffin had surgery on his troublesome left knee, and there's no timetable for his return.

Enter (or, more accurately, stay in the room) Sekou Doumbouya, who was productive again on Wednesday night, with 15 points and three steals on 6-of-9 shooting in 33 minutes, giving him averages of 13.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.5 spg and 1.3 3s in his last four games.

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, I'm joined by Jared Johnson and Ryan Knaus to consider what's ahead for the 19-year-old Doumbouya, to debate the merits of auction drafts vs. snake drafts, and to look at one fantasy squad gone terribly wrong.
