This is the rule:
How to place Alternates and Lucky Losers in case players forget to send picks in?
They should be placed randomly.
If there are more spots than alternates/Lucky Losers:
1. Check if there are matches where both players didn't send picks. If so, the manager should place a LL there, so there is no win by Ranking.
2. After that, place all Lucky Losers in a way that the best ranked players (entry list rankings) go through to the next round, getting a W/O.
3. After that, if there are any alternates or lucky losers placed against a player/team who didn't send picks, the draw should be adjusted in order to give the byes to the best ranked players who enter the draw directly. The alternates and lucky losers should play their first round matches against the opponents of the players who were given the byes. Example:
Under number 3 you can see the part that should be used in this case. :wavey
In your post you wrote about ALTs, so at first I thought that they could not enter here because ALTs can only enter in the qualification draw.
Later I found out that the 2 player are lucky loser so that rule can be applied here.
