Waiver wire watch:

  • Mike Miller: played heavy minutes in return, should be important part of Wizards’ offense going forward
  • Martell Webster: scoring, hitting threes well lately
  • Flip Murray: scoring doing his best Jamal Crawford impersonation
  • Kirk Hinrich: putting up solid all-around numbers
  • Erick Dampier: back from injury, has injured competition for minutes (see below)
  • Randy Foye: maybe the hottest pickup this week thanks to someone’s suspension
  • Earl Boykins: also a decent pickup for the same player’s suspension
  • J.J. Redick: should see enough minutes to be productive while VC heals

Injury watch:

  • Josh Howard (thigh): day-to-day
  • Drew Gooden (finger): could return this week
  • Tayshaun Prince (back/knee): soreness, could play through it
  • Rodney Stuckey (knee): monitor his status
  • Pau Gasol (hamstring): game-time decision today
  • Mike Conley (back): missed last night’s game, day-to-day
  • Al Harrington (calf): should return Monday
  • Vince Carter (shoulder): day-to-day
  • Steve Blake (pneumonia): should return tonight

Stock watch:

↑ Corey Maggette: scoring well lately, tossing in decent all-around help

↑ Aaron Brooks: on a roll

↑ Kenyon Martin: monstrous, especially with ‘Melo out

↑ Wilson Chandler: finally in his element

↑ Charlie Villanueva: relevant again

↓ Gilbert Arenas: need more be said?

↓ Joe Johnson: struggling mightily

↓ Josh Smith: another Hawk who has been off lately

↓ Eric Gordon: scoring OK, but other numbers aren’t there

↓ Luol Deng: down, down, down, down, down
