Buy low:
Al Jefferson: gone for two games because of a family illness, will get rest and should be much improved by December

Andre Miller: still starting along with Steve Blake, chances for taking over solo PG duties look decent

David West: new coach, Chris Paul’s help could help boost his numbers

Amar’e Stoudemire: still getting his conditioning back, too good to remain this mediocre on a high-scoring team

J.R. Smith: will produce strong lines soon

Gerald Wallace: rebounds are there and everything else will follow

Caron Butler: return of Antawn Jamison could help his stats

Jamison, Pau Gasol, Troy Murphy, Tony Parker, Devin Harris, Kevin Martin, Eric Gordon, Kevin Love and any other productive players who are injured should be considered buy-low candidates.

Sell high:
Elton Brand: name still holds value, trade him away before even that disappears

Channing Frye: will have a hard time maintaining high value right now, shooting will be inconsistent against strong teams

Trevor Ariza: return of Tracy McGrady will hurt his numbers a bit

Vince Carter: Rashard Lewis’ return could be minor trouble for Carter’s minutes and shots

Ben Gordon: return of Richard Hamilton will be a speed bump

Lamar Odom: Gasol’s return is nearing

Larry Hughes: Nate Robinson and the emerging Toney Douglas will cut into his value
