Waiver-wire watch:

  • Sam Young: continues to start, has notched double-digit points in five of his last six
  • Ersan Ilyasova: also holding onto his starting gig, also hit double-digit points in five of his last six
  • Anthony Parker: finally back from his back injury, started the last game for the Cavs, should be good for threes and steals
  • Mike Miller: averaging 11.1 points, two threes, 8.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists since Jan. 22
  • Christian Eyenga: starting gig seems safe for now, continues to put up solid numbers across the board (except for shooting percentages)
  • Chuck Hayes: playing heavy minutes, good for rebounds, steals and field-goal percentage
  • Ramon Sessions: averaging 20 points, 3.7 rebounds and nine assists in February, making him a must-start until Mo Williams returns
  • Jodie Meeks: breaking out of his slump lately, good source of threes
  • Eddie House: continues to be a decent source of points and threes, especially for owners in deeper leagues
  • Greg Monroe: continues to start, good for rebounds, field-goal percentage, steals, and is even blocking shots lately
  • Marvin Williams: back from his two-game suspension, notched a 15/12 line on Saturday
  • Kyle Korver: good for threes in deeper leagues
  • Rudy Fernandez: he’s a hit-or-miss guy, but is good for all-around numbers when he’s hitting
  • Raja Bell: in a mini-groove, worth a look in deeper leagues
  • Kirk Hinrich: averaging 13.3 points, 1.7 threes, 2.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 steals so far in February

↓ Tim Duncan: hasn’t had a double-double since Jan. 21

↓ Marc Gasol: has totaled just nine rebounds in three games this month, just two in his last two games

↓ Aaron Brooks: appears to have left the court early on Saturday in anguish, which doesn’t help his disappointing season
