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.

Wilson Chandler DEN | SG/SF

The Nuggets and Chandler finally reached a deal, and he could have some late season value. With Gallinari hurt again this is going to open the door for Chandler to get more time on the court. Chandler has proven that he can have fantasy value, and if he gets the minutes he should put up solid numbers. (about 20% owned)

Ramon Sessions LAL | PG/SG

It’s yet to be seen exactly how much value Sessions is going to have in LA, but I think he is worth an add just in case he ends up starting for them. There is a chance that his new home might even hurt his value, but once he gets up to speed I expect him to spend a lot of time on the court. If Sessions plays even close to 30 minutes a game he should be a great sources of free throws made, points, and assists. (about 60% owned)

Goran Dragic HOU | PG/SG

There is still no time table for a return for Lowry. This means that Dragic is going to continue to get a ton of minutes, and we all know at this point what he can do when given time out on the court. He has looked great over the last couple weeks, and he should continue to be a great fantasy guard while Lowry is out. (about 60% owned)


Tristan Thompson CLE | PF

It looks like Thompson might finally be getting a chance to get solid minutes for the Cavs, at least until Varejao comes back. When you look at what Thompson has been able to do in only 20 minutes per game so far this year, it’s easy to see his potential if he can get closer to 30 minutes per game. Thompson has the potential of being a double double guy, and he should also be able to help in the blocks category as well. (about 15% owned)

Klay Thompson GS | SG/SF

The Warriors first round pick from 2011 is getting some minutes now, and he is putting up big numbers. With Curry hurt and Ellis out of town, this has left Thompson in a great situation. He should get a ton of minutes for the rest of the season, and we see no reason why he can’t keep up this pace. (about 40% owned)

Mike Dunleavy MIL | SG/SF

Dunleavy is on one of his famous hot streaks, and I say ride this one out if you need help in the SG/SF positions. He isn’t going to get a ton of minutes with everyone healthy for the Bucks, but he still has the potential to put up solid numbers even if he is only around the 25 minutes per game. Dunleavy will more than likely cool off at some point, but if the Bucks have a big injury then he could have a lot of value down the stretch. (about 40% owned)

Isaiah Thomas SAC | PG

The rookie out of Washington continues to impress, and produce great fantasy numbers. He is a great source of points for any fantasy team, and he has the potential to fill up the stat sheet. The Kings have nothing to play for at this point, so they might as well continue to give their rookie a run and see what he can do. (about 45% owned)

Rodrigue Beaubois DAL | PG/SG

Since coming back from injury a few weeks ago Beaubois has been somewhat inconsistent, but recently he has been solid. The Mavericks have mentioned that they want to limit his minutes per game, but as long as he is over 25 minutes he should have value in most leagues. The Mavericks have an old backcourt, and if there is a major injury then Beaubois could put up amazing numbers. (about 20% owned)

Jerryd Bayless TOR | PG/SG

Bayless has put up great numbers recently with Calderon banged up. Calderon is back now and Bayless is going to take a hit with his time on the court, but I still like his overall upside. Bayless should still get enough minutes to put up solid numbers, and if Calderon gets hurt again Bayless could be a stud down the stretch. (about 35% owned)

Nate Robinson GS | PG/SG

Just like Klay Thompson, Robinson is benefiting from the new look Warriors. It doesn’t look like Curry will be back this year, which should open the door for Robinson to continue to play around 30 minutes per game. He isn’t going to do much more than score and throw in a few assists, but he is an exciting player to own. (about 35% owned)

Boris Diaw N/A | SF/PF/C

Diaw’s time in Charlotte appears to be over, and depending on where he goes he could have value down the stretch. He doesn’t have a hugh upside, but with his position eligibility he could be a great role player for most fantasy teams. He is still owned in a lot of leagues right now, but he will more than likely get dropped in most leagues until he gets picked up by another NBA team. (about 55% owned)

Martell Webster MIN | SG/SF

With the injury to Rubio this has opened the door for Webster to get some more playing time. He doesn’t have a huge upside, but he shouldn’t have a problem scoring in double digits and grabing some boards. He is going to be inconsistent, but he has the potential of having some big nights.
