Waiver Wire is our weekly look at players available in many leagues that could have an immediate impact on your fantasy roster, or simply just players to keep on your radar. We’ll be here all season to let you know which players to watch, who to ignore, and most importantly, who to pick up. If you have any waiver wire questions, feel free to post them in our Fantasy Basketball Forum.

Add in all Leagues

JaVale McGee WAS | FC

Still looks lost at times on the court but the per-minute averages make JaVale relevant in the majority of leagues. Has made a concerted effort in the past two contests to attack the glass and the correlation between rebounding and playing time is obvious under coach Flip Saunders. (about 75% owned)

Andris Biedrins GS | C

Going to get some more run with David Lee out for a week or so and the lack of interior options in Golden State. Averaging over nine rebounds per game this year in less than 27 minutes. Solid source of boards if you’re in the market for a center. (about 70% owned)

Channing Frye PHO | FC

Starting to come on for the Suns after a woeful start to the season. Getting all the minutes he can handle now with Robin Lopez sidelined for the next month. Over the last three Frye has averaged 16 & 6 and has connected on 8 of 17 from downtown. (about 70% owned)


Charlie Villanueva DET | PF

Charlie V has scored in double figures in 10 out of 12 games coming off the bench for Detroit this year. He’s hitting two 3’s with just under one block per contest. (about 70% owned)

Add in Deeper Leagues

Wesley Matthews POR | SG

Wesley proceeded to blow up Tuesday in his first start of the season, logging 42 minutes. Great opportunity for him at the moment with all of the question marks surrounding Brandon Roy. (about 30% owned)

Kirk Hinrich WAS | G

Hinrich has been a nice addition to a young Wizards team, starting every game thus far. The minutes might drop a bit once John Wall and Gilbert get back up to speed, but there should still be enough to go around. (about 45% owned)

Landry Fields NYK | GF

Averaging 15 points and 7 rebounds in 32 minutes over the past week. Above average rebounding and field goal percentage from a guard spot make him a valuable asset in deep leagues. (about 35% owned)

Sonny Weems I TOR | GF

He’s not going to do much else other than score but is getting a bunch of playing time and should probably be owned in more leagues until he cools off. (about 20% owned)

Al-Farouq Aminu LAC | SF

Aminu has started the past four games for the Clippers and has shown a nice set of skills. His effectiveness from behind the arc has been a pleasant surprise and main competition for minutes is Ryan Gomes. (about 15% owned)

Kris Humphries NJ | PF

Well worth a look right now with Troy Murphy missing in action. Humphries has averaged 13 rebounds and 2 blocks while playing 32 minutes over the last four contests. (about 20% owned)

Add to Watch List

Rodrigue Beaubois DAL | G

Roddy has a chance to start for Dallas once he returns from foot surgery. He’s still a few weeks away from playing in a game but is already a nice stash candidate for those in deeper formats. (about 10% owned)
