Nick Calathes (Guard) - Waiver Wire Pickup

Alex Xu- RotoBaller

Baller Move: Add Immediately

Analysis: Calathes is a great short-term add for anyone in need of PTS, AST, and 3PTM at the guard position. He started in place of an injured Conley and played a whopping 40 minutes against the Bucks (22 PTS, 4 3PTM, 5 RBD, 3 AST, 1 STL, 0 TO). Those are great numbers, especially in 9-category leagues. The diagnosis on Conley's ankle is a grade 2 sprain which should sideline him for at least one week, so Calathes will continue to see heavy minutes as long as Conley is out. I would not recommend dropping a consistent starter for Calathes as he is only filling in temporarily for Conley and is only averaging 13:25 MPG this season.
