Not sure why that's happening to you - it definitely did not happen to me during yesterday's games. In the Live Scoring area, don't you have a "Show Reserves" link where guys on your bench are listed separately, below the others?
Also, I thought (*) next to a player meant he was on a roster, seen from the free agent list area, not the Live Scoring area - none of my players have that asterisk.
You sure you're viewing the correct day? You sure he was Reserved and not Active?
