Joe Gibbs Racing | Denny Hamlin has fracture in back

Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin (back) has been diagnosed with a compression fracture in his lower back after crashing in the Sprint Cup Series race at Auto Club Speedway Sunday, March 24. Hamlin is expected to be released from the hospital Monday, March 25. It's unknown how long it will take for him to recover.

Fantasy Tip: The good news is that the next Cup race isn't for another two weeks, but we still don't know if he'll be ready by then. There is a good chance he won't be, so it'd be wise to make plans for a long-term absence just in case.
