Stock watch:

↑ Wilson Chandler: he’s been great lately, hitting threes, stealing and blocking well

↑ Hedo Turkoglu: a return to Orland should do him well, though expectations shouldn’t be too high

↑ Paul Pierce: after a string of pedestrian lines, last two have been solid

↑ Carlos Boozer: with injuries to Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson, Boozer will be heavily relied on

↑ Arron Afflalo: he’s quietly relevant again

↓ Josh Smith: he’s been average lately

↓ Al Jefferson: he averaged a meager 10.3 points on 32.5 percent shooting last week, but 2.3 blocks have been his saving grace

↓ Jason Richardson: he’ll still be good for threes, but minutes and shots won’t be as available as they were in Phoenix

↓ Baron Davis: starting gig has done nothing to revive his value

↓ Tyrus Thomas: realized trade rumors for the Bobcats are the only surefire way to bump up his fantasy value
