1 game: BOS, HOU, IND, MEM, NY, OKC, PHO, TOR, WAS

Waiver wire watch:

  • Marcus Thornton: despite back injury, worthy of a spot in most leagues
  • Ryan Gomes: on a strong streak
  • Luc Richard Mbah a Moute: two consecutive strong outings
  • DeJuan Blair: continues to show promise, should have a strong end of the season
  • George Hill: playing too well to ignore
  • Coby Karl: Nellie loves him, fantasy owners should be intrigued

Injury watch:

  • Tyson Chandler (foot): nearing a return
  • Chauncey Billups (ankle): day-to-day
  • Tyler Hansbrough (ear infection): condition has worsened
  • Kobe Bryant (ankle): day-to-day
  • Allen Iverson (personal): uncertain return date
  • Brandon Roy (hamstring): out through All-Star weekend
  • Andrew Bynum (hip): monitor his status
  • Devin Harris (shoulder): ditto
  • Trevor Ariza (hip): day-to-day
  • Kyle Lowry (ankle): day-to-day
  • Corey Maggette (finger): questionable for Monday

Stock watch:

↑ Russell Westbrook: almost averaging a triple-double this past week

↑ Rajon Rondo: straight-up nasty in his past five games

↑ Carl Landry: after brief slump, back to his efficient ways

↑ Jeff Green: this streak is no fluke

↑ Samuel Dalembert: playing through pain, putting up great stats

↓ Kobe Bryant: when’s the last time his numbers have been this mediocre?

↓ Pau Gasol: another Laker who’s been quite pedestrian lately

↓ Antawn Jamison: downright awful in three games after 21/23 night

↓ Jameer Nelson: knee, lackluster numbers are worrisome

↓ Andre Miller: after huge 52-point game, has fallen back to earth
