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.

Isaiah Thomas SAC | PG

The rookie out of Washington has made his way into the starting lineup, and he has taken full advantage. He has looked great across the board, not only is he filling up the stat sheet but he isn’t turning the ball over that much as well. It does scare me that he is only 5’9″, but at this point I think he is well worth the gamble to see if he can keep up this pace. (about 55% owned)

Jordan Crawford WAS | PG/SG

We know that Crawford can put the ball in the basket, but he is still a raw talent that might get inconsistent minutes. With all that said I still like his upside for the second half of the season. He has been getting consistent minutes over the last 10 days or so, and his production has been solid during that stretch. (about 30% owned)

Ekpe Udoh GS | PF/C

There have been reports that the Warriors might go towards the youth movement after the break. If they do end up doing this then Udoh will be one of the biggest beneficiaries. The former first round pick has had inconsistent minutes this year, but when given the playing time he has had solid numbers. He is far from a guarantee moving forward, but I still like his upside.

Gerald Henderson CHA | SG/SF

All signs are pointing to Henderson being back following the all-star break, and he should go right back into the starting lineup. Henderson was having a solid year before his injury, and I see no reason why and can’t pickup right were he left off. He doesn’t exactly fill up the stat sheet, but he is a solid source of points and rebounds. (about 50% owned)


Richard Hamilton CHI | SG/SF

It looks like Hamilton will be back shortly after the the all-star break, and he could have solid value if he can stay healthy. He had some big games before he got hurt, and the Bulls are going to ask him to take a lot of shots. (about 30% owned)

Josh Howard UTA | SG/SF

When given the minutes Howard has looked like close to the Howard of old. There are some reports coming out that Howard might make it back into the starting lineup after the all-star break. Not only would this put Howard back on the fantasy map, but it could make him a hot pick-up for the second half. Assuming he can stay healthy of course. (about 10% owned)

Bismack Biyombo CHA | PF/C

The Bobcats first round pick from 2011 is starting to get some playing time, and he has looked good thus far. He has been solid on the boards, and a beast when it comes to blocking shots. He might not continue to get this many minutes, but with the Bobcats having nothing to play for we see no reason to not go with the youth movement. (about 15% owned)

Ramon Sessions CLE | PG/SG

Sessions has been the source of a lot of trade rumors, and if he lands in the right place he could have a ton of value. The Lakers appear to be the front runners but it’s hard to say at this point. He might be worth an add if he is available in your league just to see if he ends up landing in a better situation. (about 50% owned)

Gustavo Ayon NO | PF/C

Ayon is a young center that is worth an add in a lot of formats. The front court for the Hornets is really banged up, and there is a chance they ship Kamen out of town. The Hornets have nothing to play for at this point, so they might as well see what they have with this young big man. (about 20% owned)

Add to Watch List

Nikola Vucevic PHI | PF/C

Vucevic was the first round pick of the 76ers in 2011, and he has been great when given a chance to play. The problem is I doubt he will see much time if everyone is healthy. If Hawes or Brand go down with a serious injury then Vucevic needs to be owned in pretty much all leagues. (about 5% owned)

Kawhi Leonard SA | SG/SF

Leonard has shown some flashes of solid play, but he can’t seem to get the minutes when everyone is healthy. If the Spurs have one of their main guys go down then Leonard could have decent value. He is certainly a guy to keep an eye on because if he gets the minutes he should have no problem being a solid fantasy player. (about 20% owned)
