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
Dalembert has started the past two contests for Sacramento and received 30+ minutes per. Meshing well with young teammates, he’ll be a solid source of boards & blocks as long as he can stay healthy. (about 70% owned)
Off to a nice start with averages of 14 points and 2 steals to go with 1.5 threes. Integral role off the bench for a Knicks’ squad searching for an identity. Has struggled with his shot a bit of late but the minutes have been good and expect this team to continue to develop chemistry under Mike D’Antoni as the season progresses. (about 65% owned)
Plenty of opportunity in terms of playing time and available shots this year. He’s averaging 13.6 PPG, 4.4 APG with a steal and almost two 3-pointers. Mo Williams left Wednesday with a groin injury and Gibson will get a nice boost if he misses some time. (about 55% owned)
Add in Deeper Leagues
Johnson has really come on in the past week with averages of 12 & 9 with a steal and a block. In a pretty good situation with the Raptors rebuilding so expect the minutes to be there on a nightly basis. Don’t hesitate to grab him if he was dropped after his slow start. (about 35% owned)
Getting close to making a return from hip surgery. He has nice upside for points, assists and steals but will probably end up in a timeshare situation in Minnesota. (about 25% owned)
Played over 34 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Friday. Responded with a 13-6-7 line as well as a couple of steals and blocks. Should get a chance to start in the near future as his conditioning improves. (about 15% owned)
Fernandez is starting to heat up for the Blazers. He’s 8-15 from downtown over the last three games. With all the uncertainty surrounding the health of Brandon Roy this year, Portland is going to need some offense from Rudy. (about 10% owned)
Still adjusting to the pro game, getting a little extra run the last few with Wayne Ellington out. A bit of a crowded scene at the two guard for the Wolves but Wes offers a more well rounded skill set than the likes of Corey Brewer and the aforementioned Ellington. (about 50% owned)
The minutes have been a bit disappointing since Kaman got hurt, with Vinny Del Negro going with a smaller lineup on the regular. He’ll probably put together a few nice lines and could be worth a look if you need a center. (about 10% owned)
Add to Watch List
The eighth pick in this year’s draft is going to see a fair amount of action early with all of the injuries for the Clippers. He’ll probably be inconsistent but offers some versatility and the playing time should be there in the short-term. (about 5% owned)
