Waiver-wire watch:

  • Jodie Meeks: he should be owned in your league; averaging 14.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals, three three-pointers made, 50 percent from the field and 93 percent from the charity stripe in March
  • Jarrett Jack: his past two games have been solid, though he’s tough to rely on
  • Chris Andersen: he’ll always chip in some blocks when he’s playing, but his 17/11/1/2/5 line on Friday was a doozy
  • Kirk Hinrich: three of his last four games were good; he should be a fine player to round out your bench
  • Patrick Patterson: his three-game streak of double-doubles is broken, but Patterson is still a good source of rebounds and blocks
  • Matt Bonner: he’s been a decent source of threes, steals and blocks lately, but is only worth a sniff in deeper leagues
  • Luc Richard Mbah a Moute: averaging 12.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.7 blocks since March 16
  • Courtney Lee: with Chase Budinger set to return today, Lee’s value takes another hit just one game after his big 25-point outing; just keep an eye on him
  • Ryan Anderson: he’s been inconsistent but has hit at least one three in every game since Feb. 27
  • Brandon Bass: his last four games have been solid, making him worth a look if you need some points, rebounds, steals and blocks
  • Ekpe Udoh: scoop him up if you need blocks
  • Peja Stojakovic: if you need threes, Peja’s a decent short-term option
  • Francisco Garcia: with Tyreke Evans back, Garcia’s value isn’t so appealing, but he’s still worth a stash in some leagues
  • Darrell Arthur: he’s been on a nice roll lately and should be a fine pickup for owners in deeper leagues
  • Jared Dudley: he got heavy minutes in his last two games and responded well; he’s always a good play when Vince Carter is out or limited
  • Brandon Rush: he’s doing just enough to warrant monitoring in deeper leagues
  • Randy Foye: even with Eric Gordon back, Foye’s worth a look
  • Jordan Crawford: if you’re fine with a weak FG% and lots of turnovers, Crawford warrants serious consideration
  • Marco Belinelli: he’s usually a decent source of points and threes, but is liable to turn in a clunker at least once a week
  • Tiago Splitter: he’s started his last two games and is worth monitoring
  • Daniel Gibson: if you need points, threes and steals, Gibson is worth a look
  • James Johnson: he’s a decent source of rebounds, steals and blocks
