3 years agoDion Waiters continues to stand out as being one of the Miami Heat's top players. He has essentially become one of the first scoring options alongside Goran Dragic. So that just goes to show you the impact he brings to the game. There’s no better evidence of that than his play over the last two outings. Against Orlando, he dropped 23 points and six assists, and then went off for 23 points, nine rebounds and seven assists on the Houston Rockets. For that reason, if he’s available in your fantasy leagues, he needs to be picked up as soon as possible.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 years agoOver his last 10 games, Dario Saric has been averaging 16.1 points per game, 6.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists and one steal in 28 minutes of action. After getting the season started off with a rough patch, Saric has started to find his rhythm as of late. He’s shooting 46.3% from the field. That’s far better than the 39.7% he’s shot throughout the season. Now if he can continue this play, he’ll become a must-add in all fantasy formats due to his ability to do a multitude of things out on the court.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 years agoPortland Trail Blazers power forward/center Jusuf Nurkic made quite the first impression on the Rip City faithful. In his debut, Nurkic recorded 13 points, seven rebounds, and three steals to go along with one assist and one steal. He managed all this in just 21 minutes with a perfect 5-for-5 shooting night. Nurkic's fantasy value leaps with his recent move to Portland, as he no longer plays behind Nikola Jokic. In Portland, Nurkic is clearly the Blazers' top option (ahead of Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis). He should enjoy increased minutes and figures to see a slight bump in assists while surrounded by the likes of C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard.--Matt De SilvaSource: Portland Tribune
3 years agoBoston Celtics center Kelly Olynyk has been a reliable contributor off the bench. He's recorded seven rebounds in each of his last five games while scoring in double digits in six of his last seven games. Although Olynyk's peripheral defensive stats are not among the league's leaders, he's steadily improving as a distributor. While he's a borderline player in many ways, the combination of three-point shooting and rebounding might prove useful for certain roster constructions. His 51.7 percent from the field and 70.7 percent from the free throw line don't hurt his case, either. If he can keep up his hot streak after the All-Star Break, Olynyk could be worth an addition to your team.--Matt De SilvaSource: Celtics
3 years agoOver the last month, New York Knicks center Guillermo Hernangomez has averaged 10.1 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.8 assist, and almost one steal per game. In his last game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, the 6-foot-10 Spaniard recorded eight points, 10 rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 32 minutes of action. Although he doesn't receive a standard lot of playing time (usually behind Joakim Noah in the rotation), in seven of his last eight games, the center has played at least 20 minutes. Hernangomez leads all rookies in field goal percentage, shooting 54.4 percent from the field. Just 22 years of age, the center looks to be a hidden gem on the Knicks roster, so don't sleep on him. As long as Noah (hamstring) remains out of the lineup, Hernangomez is a reliable streamer, and if you're adventurous, maybe even a roster option.--Matt De SilvaSource: John Reid
3 years agoPhiladelphia 76ers power forward/center Nerlens Noel has put together a nice little streak over the last four games. During this time, Noel has averaged 14.25 points, six rebounds, three steals, and 1.25 blocks per game. With Jahlil Okafor possibly on the trading block, the former Kentucky big man has made the most of his time on the floor. Joel Embiid (knee) remains out of the lineup, so the Sixers have turned to Noel, and he's proven his defensive value time and again. Although Philadelphia's rotation (and health) is always a gamble, Noel seems to be rounding into form going into the All-Star Break. If you're in need of some of those defensive stats, certainly give some thought to adding the man with the high-top fade.--Matt De SilvaSource: Derek Bodner
3 years agoKhris Middleton was one of the first players stashed in most fantasy leagues, and owners were pleased with a 20-point performance his last game before the All-Star break. While many fantasy players' eyes are on Nikola Jokic, expect Khrisread more...
3 years agoDenver Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson has replaced Emmanuel Mudiay in the starting lineup for the time being. As the 20-year-old Mudiay contends with a back issue, Nelson has filled in capably. Over the last week, Nelson is averaging 16.8 points, 9.5 assists, and 5.5 rebounds per game. Amazingly, this stretch includes stiff challenges against the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Nuggets surprisingly dissected the Warriors in a 132-110 takedown, while tying an NBA record with 24 made three-pointers. At 35 years of age, this could be Nelson's last hurrah, but you should act quickly if you're in need of a strong backup point guard. As long as Mudiay remains out, Nelson will carry the load for the Nuggets. Over the last six games, he is averaging 34.3 minutes per game.--Matt De SilvaSource: Chris Dempsey
3 years agoWith the All-Star break officially underway, the Pistons and Magic have been rumored to be in talks of a trade that would send Reggie Jackson to the Magic, according to Marc Stein. In return, Orlando would send D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green to Detroit. Jackson would help add solid scoring to the Orlando backcourt, while Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin would add decent depth to Detroit. Augustin would be an interesting tandem with Ish Smith in the backcourt, while Green could be a decent option given a reserved role. This would actually give Reggie Jackson a major boost in value given the amount of offensive weight he would have to shoulder night in and night out.--Jake Finnen - RotoBallerSource: Marc Stein
3 years agoOn Tuesday morning, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced that Kevin Love underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and will miss six weeks. Despite what all the pop songs say, it's time to give up on Love. With season averages of 20 points, 11.1 rebounds andread more...
3 years agoWashington Wizards forward Otto Porter is quietly becoming one of the most deadly shooters in the NBA. The No. 3 pick from the 2013 NBA draft is shooting a league-high 46.5 percent from three, ahead of All-Stars like Stephen Curry andread more...
3 years agoCleveland Cavaliers sharpshooter Kyle Korver has registered two 20-point outings in the club's last five games. What's remarkable about this is that he's done so in limited minutes and with incredible efficiency. During this stretch, Korver has shot a scorching 29-of-41, or 70.7 percent from the field. The shooting guard has also recorded five rebounds in each of the last five contests (with just one exception). In each his last eight games, Korver has hit at least two three-pointers, achieving a high of eight three-pointers against the Pacers earlier in the month. So, it's pretty obvious -- if you need three-pointers, Korver is your man. With an ownership just cracking 30 percent in ESPN leagues, he's often available for the taking. Since being traded to the defending champs, the shooting guard has experienced a renaissance of sorts. Make sure to capitalize on this shooting star.--Matt De SilvaSource: Jason Lloyd
3 years agoI can't figure it out for the life of me why people are hanging on to Lakers forward Brandon Ingram. The No. 2 pick out of Duke will definitely become a fantasy baller one day, but in his rookie season, he's sorely lacked consistency. A couple weeks ago, Ingram had back-to-back 14-point games against the Celtics and Knicks, which also included strong rebounding efforts. However, he's since regressed (yet again). With season averages of just eight points and 4.1 rebounds, he's not exactly somebody who should be featured - even in the deepest of leagues. And yet, he's owned in 32.1 percent of ESPN leagues. Please drop him and pick up somebody halfway decent from free agency. As we enter the All-Star Break, Ingram is trending downward, and given coach Luke Walton's balanced rotation, that's not about to change.--Matt De SilvaSource: Mark Medina
3 years agoMinnesota Timberwolves shooting guard/small forward Andrew Wiggins had two monster games heading into the All-Star Break. In a revenge game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, he posted 41 points, three rebounds, two assists, and one steal. Wiggins followed that up with a 40-point outing against the Denver Nuggets. In these two games, he scored well above his season average of 23.2 points, and he was also helped out by teammate Ricky Rubio in his scoring endeavor (late in the game, Rubio let Wiggins shoot a technical free throw late in his place in order to reach 40 points). Still, Wiggins' increased scoring isn't a fluke. Over the last 30 days, he is averaging 27.7 points per game, so he's certainly a strong DFS option (even if his peripheral stats aren't quite as prolific).--Matt De SilvaSource: Jerry Zgoda
3 years agoAvery Bradley (Achilles) and Jaylen Brown (hip) will not play in tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls, says coach Brad Stevens. This news means that Marcus Smart will be asked to help carry the load, as he's done over the last four games. With the Celtics playing the second game of a back-to-back, heavy legs may be problematic in this one. Although the Bulls are also banged up, they have the advantage of a day's rest and playing at home. According to ESPN's Nick Friedell, Chicago's Jimmy Butler will play without any restrictions, so expect a big game from the former Marquette player. Dwyane Wade (illness) is out, so Butler will be the focal point of Chicago's offense. Although he's struggled from the field in his last two outings (19 and 20 points), Butler ought to turn it around tonight. Look for him to be more in line with his season averages of 24.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists, and 1.9 steals per game.--Matt De SilvaSource: Nick Friedell
