Add in all leagues
Tolliver has been playing really well lately and he should continue to see solid minutes. Since the Andris Biedrins injury Golden State has looked at Tolliver to pick up the slack, and for the most part he has done just that. Tolliver should be owned in almost all leagues at this point. (about 40% owned)
Douglas has been playing amazing since he landed a starting job a couple weeks ago. Douglas should be a great all around player for the rest of the season, and should be universally owned at this point. (about 50% owned)
Add in deeper leagues
Williams came out of the D league, and he has made an instant impact for the Warriors. They just signed him for the rest of the season, and he is in good shape to see solid minutes. We think Williams is well worth a gamble if you have a roster spot. (about 15% owned)
Murray has been asked to take more shots for the Bulls since Luol Deng went out with an injury. He is the first option off the bench, and he has been putting up solid numbers lately. We expect him to be inconsistent, but look for Murray to have some solid games down the stretch. (about 10% owned)
It seems like Darko always finds a way to have fantasy relevance at some point of the season. He hasn’t done much this year, but he has seen a lot of minutes lately for Minnesota. We aren’t sure how long it will last, but as long as he is playing close to 30 minutes a game he should have decent numbers. (about 15% owned)
It’s official, Big Z has resigned with the Cavaliers and he should see instant minutes. With the injury to Shaq look for Ilgauskas to play about 20-25 minutes, which could make him a decent role player. (about 25% owned)
The T-Wolves have nothing to play for, and they are giving their young guys some minutes. Ellington should have inconsistent minutes and numbers but he is worth keeping a close eye on. (about 15% owned)
Rush is one of the streakiest players in the league, but he is currently on one of his hot streaks. He is a great 3-point specialist and is worth picking up if you need a boost in 3’s. (about 40% owned)
With the injury to Luol Deng, a starting spot opened up in Chicago. That spot has been taken by Johnson, and it should be his for the rest of the season. It looks like even if Deng comes back it will not be until the last few games. Look for Johnson to be inconsistent, but he should have solid averages. (about 10% owned)
