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
Finally getting an opportunity to run the show in Charlotte and is responding with a healthy 6 APG to go with 1.5 turnovers. He’s a bit streaky but has hit 9 of 18 from downtown through four games and is an excellent free throw shooter. (about 70% owned)
Not exactly the best situation for him out in Milwaukee in terms of fantasy upside but he has been their most consistent option out of the gates and is getting some nice run. Who knows how long it will last but for the time being Carlos needs to be owned in more leagues. (about 70% owned)
The Thunder have placed an emphasis on defense this season which bodes well for Ibaka’s potential playing time. Look for him to approach double-doubles on a regular basis with a couple blocks per, and improved FT%. (about 70% owned)
Add in Deeper Leagues
George Karl is a fan, you should be as well. The ability to defend and spread the floor has translated to over 35 MPG. Snag him before the post-Melo era begins and it’s too late. (about 50% owned)
Should continue to thrive in the sixth man role for a team that is as fantasy friendly as ever. The Warriors hit the road for five games in seven nights starting Sunday at Detroit. (about 45% owned)
Forcing the issue in a good way, getting to the line six times per contest while averaging 28 minutes. The FG% is nice for a guard and he has the ability (mindset?) to produce defensive stats as well. (about 50% owned)
More of a short term/speculation add with no competition for minutes currently. He’s going to be a hot commodity if the Clips decide to go with a youth movement. (about 15% owned)
Mr. Jones is about as one-dimensional as they come, but with Mike Miller out for the foreseeable future he could be your best friend if you’re in need of 3’s. (about 40% owned)
Add to Watch List
Portland handed him a big bag of cash in the off season, so he’s going to get playing time. Hopefully, he can stay in good with Nate McMillan and be able to earn a significant role on offense. (about 15% owned)
Logging around 20 minutes a night currently while splitting time with Josh McRoberts. He’s the more talented of the two and could provide rebounding help in deeper formats. (about 10% owned)
The former Georgetown stand-out has seen extended run in the past two contests for a Pistons team in flux. Keep an eye on his minutes and expect some inconsistency. (about 10% owned)
