(Apologies for the lateness and slight outdatedness of this shortened post — took a quick vacation this weekend.)

Game watch:
4 games: DAL, DEN, LAC, LAL, MEM, NJ, NO, NY, OKC, PHO, TOR, UTA, WAS
3 games: BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DET, GS, HOU, IND, MIA, MIL, MIN, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, SA
2 games: ATL

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Eric Bledsoe: as Baron Davis continues to ail, Bledsoe will continue to get minutes
  • Mike Dunleavy: continues to start and had a solid week
  • Rudy Fernandez: could be a winner in the “Brandon Roy’s bum knee” sweepstakes
  • Keith Bogans: he’s finding some offense
  • Brandon Rush: stuck on the bench for now, but still offers a great mix of stats
  • Tyler Hansbrough: “Psycho T” does a lot with the minutes he’s given
  • Austin Daye: showing signs of life
  • Amir Johnson: the sleeper is waking up
  • Jordan Hill: should benefit from Yao Ming’s absence
  • Chuck Hayes: ditto
  • Shannon Brown: produces nice lines every now and then
  • Andres Nocioni: streaky, but good for some threes
  • Travis Outlaw: fun guy to own if you like roller coasters
  • Kris Humphries: had a monster game on Wednesday, could be decent as Nets big men suffer
  • Ishmael Smith: Kyle Lowry’s still getting his legs back

Stock watch:

LeBron James: finding his groove

Jrue Holiday: finally making strides

Gerald Wallace: rebounds, steals and blocks are falling into place

Nicolas Batum: bouncing back after a couple clunkers, will benefit from Roy’s health issues

Brook Lopez: looks absolutely miserable so far

Chauncey Billups: minutes, scoring, FG%, 3ptm, rebounds, assists are down, turnovers are up

Brandon Roy: knee issues are cause for serious concern

Blake Griffin: the hype and big lines have died down and his weaknesses (low FT%, blocks) are becoming clear
