Tyler Hansbrough

You'd be psycho not to go and grab Hansbrough off the waiver wire. (NBA.com)

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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Tyler Hansbrough: starting gig appears secure, averaging 17.7 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals so far this month
  • Chase Budinger: doing good things with his starting job, putting up 14.7 points, four rebounds, 2.2 assists, one steal and 1.3 threes per game this month
  • Nenad Krstic: averaging 15.4 points and 7.4 rebounds in March, making him worth a definite look if you need a big man
  • Ed Davis: was having a big month even before Amir Johnson went down; he’s a good bet for a short-term boost if you need a big
  • Gerald Henderson: he’s a scorer who also chips in his share in other categories; he should be a steady producer for the remainder of the season
  • Jodie Meeks: has scored 11+ points and hit 2+ threes in his last eight games
  • Francisco Garcia: good for points, threes and steals, but Tyreke Evans possible’ return would be a downer for Garcia
  • James Johnson: he continues to start and has some value for owners who need blocks
  • Ryan Anderson: shaky consistency, but he’s good for threes and has blocked two shots in each of his last three games
  • Marco Belinelli: he’s worth an add if you need points and threes
  • Shawne Williams: if you’re in a deeper league and are OK with three bad games for every good one, he’s worth a look
  • Kurt Thomas: he has some value so long as Carlos Boozer is out
  • Trevor Booker: he’ll be a marginally appealing big man so long as Andray Blatche is out
  • Randy Foye: he continues to have value as Eric Gordon’s wrist heals
  • DJ White: he’s emerged with some surprising value in Charlotte; give him a look if you want some points and boards
  • Kyle Korver: good source of threes if you’re in a deeper league
  • C.J. Miles: he’s having a big month and is good for points, threes and steals
  • Courtney Lee: March has been a good month for him; he’s scoring and shooting well
  • Jordan Crawford: emerging as an intriguing guy to own in deeper leagues; he’s worth monitoring
  • Tony Allen: his steals are steady, his other stats aren’t
  • Mario Chalmers: decent point guard for owners in deeper leagues
  • Darrell Arthur: inconsistent but good for points, rebounds and blocks on most nights
  • Gary Neal: good for points, threes and some other stats on most nights
  • Tracy McGrady: starting again, which means it’s time to give him a look
  • Leandro Barbosa: two of his last three game were big
  • Aaron Brooks: if Steve Nash sits out with his nagging injury, he’ll have decent value
Injury watch:
  • Kobe Bryant (ankle): monitor his status
  • Anthony Carter (illness): check his status
  • Al Horford (ankle): monitor his status
  • Josh Powell (arrest): arrested after a traffic incident Saturday
  • Carlos Boozer (ankle): day-to-day
  • Peja Stojakovic (back): day-to-day
  • Arron Afflalo (hamstring): day-to-day
  • Luis Scola (knee): day-to-day
  • Zydrunas Ilgauskas (foot): day-to-day
  • Chauncey Billups (thigh): expected to play today
  • J.J. Redick (abdomen): could miss two more games
  • Paul Millsap (knee): day-to-day
  • Ronnie Price (toe): day-to-day
  • Francisco Elson (knee): day-to-day
  • Andray Blatche (shoulder): day-to-day
  • Glen Davis (knee): could return today
  • Steve Nash (groin): questionable today, though he wants to play through it
  • Beno Udrih (flu): day-to-day
  • Amir Johnson (ankle): day-to-day
  • Corey Maggette (knee): day-to-day
  • Nicolas Batum (ankle): monitor his status
  • Tyreke Evans (foot): return remains a mystery that might not happen
Stock watch:

↑ Ty Lawson: after a slow start with his starting gig, Lawson is averaging 16.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, nine assists, 2.2 steals and 1.6 threes in March

↑ Marcin Gortat: continues to beast it up off the bench, should get more tick with Channing Frye sidelined

↑ J.R. Smith: benefiting from Afflalo’s absence, had a monster 31/4/4 line, along with nine threes, on Saturday

↑ Al Jefferson: continues to thrive without Deron Williams in town, averaging 26.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 2.5 blocks so far this month

↑ Kris Humphries: has posted six straight double-doubles and is averaging two blocks a game so far in March

↓ Danny Granger: while his last line was solid, Granger’s lines have looked pedestrian lately

↓ Rajon Rondo: hasn’t notched a double-double in three games, and has amassed 12 turnovers in that stretch

↓ Joe Johnson: he’s been plain terrible so far this month

↓ Devin Harris: alternating good games with bad ones

↓ Roy Hibbert: his lines make it appear as if Jim O’Brien is back on the bench — but no, it’s just a major slump
