Waiver wire watch:

  • C.J. Watson: like Hansel, he’s so hot right now
  • James Harden: continues to put up solid overall numbers
  • JaVale McGee: new starting center in D.C., could find consistency soon
  • Rasual Butler: with Al Thornton out of town, he has good value for now

Injury watch:

  • Tyson Chandler (foot): day-to-day
  • Joakim Noah (foot): back, but limited minutes
  • Kobe Bryant (ankle): should return Tuesday
  • Chris Andersen (back): day-to-day
  • Ronnie Brewer (hamstring): will miss at least three weeks
  • Sasha Vujacic (shoulder): out two weeks
  • Dwyane Wade (calf): in a boot, could miss at least a few games
  • Tony Parker (hip): out Sunday, MRI soon
  • Yi Jianlian (back): game-time decision Sunday
  • Devin Harris (knee): ditto
  • Willie Green (shoulder): day-to-day
  • Jon Brockman (knee): out two to four weeks
  • Chris Bosh (ankle): day-to-day

Stock watch:

↑ Andray Blatche: he’s the man in a depleted Wizards frontcourt

↑ Tracy McGrady: he’s finally playing and had a huge first game

↑ Tyreke Evans: has the Kings backcourt to himself now

↑ Dwight Howard: keeping his turnovers low, hitting his free throws

↑ Tyrus Thomas: finally out of Chicago, racking up blocks in Charlotte

↓ Antawn Jamison: went from option 1A to option 3 in Cleveland

↓ Brandon Roy: it’s nice to see him playing, but he’s clearly struggling

↓ Al Jefferson: really struggling lately

↓ Nate Robinson: has a much lower ceiling in Boston

↓ Ben Gordon: will he ever make a comeback?
