Waiver-wire watch:

  • Brandon Bass: at worst, he’ll be in a timeshare at PF with Hedo Turkoglu; at best, the PF spot
  • Nick Young: his 30-point game on Saturday shows his value with Gilbert Arenas out of town, but he’s still mostly points and threes
  • Marcin Gortat: he’ll get more minutes than he did in Orlando, which makes him worth consideration in most leagues
  • Reggie Williams: his time is short, but so long as Curry is out, Williams is worth owning
  • Leandro Barbosa: he’s scored in double digits in five straight games
  • Spencer Hawes: if you need a center, he’s your man
  • Chris Douglas-Roberts: his days of value are numbered, but he’s worth a look
  • DeAndre Jordan: he’s an inconsistent center but will get his minutes while Chris Kaman is out
  • Ty Lawson: he should be owned in all leagues while Chauncey Billups is out
  • Marcus Thornton: back-to-back 19-point games are a sight for sore eyes
  • Anthony Parker: he’s proving to be a somewhat steady option for deeper leagues
  • Mario Chalmers: he’s a point guard to consider in deep leagues
  • Marvin Williams: Joe Johnson is back earlier than expected, but Williams is still worth consideration
  • Brandon Rush: despite timeshare, he’s relevant in most leagues
  • Martell Webster: he continues to offer decent value off the bench for Minnesota
  • Dante Cunningham: could be worth a look in deeper leagues while Portland’s frontcourt heals up
  • Josh Howard: he’s back and is worth a speculative pickup
