Stock watch:

↑ Carlos Delfino: has hit 26 threes in his last five games

↑ J.J. Hickson: averaging 21.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and one block in his last four games

↑ Shawn Marion: averaging 17.4 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks in his last seven games, despite being yanked in and out of the starting lineup

↑ Andrew Bynum: his clearly defined niche as a defender and rebounder has translated very  nicely into big fantasy value

↑ Anthony Randolph: averaged 27.5 points, 13 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks in his last two games, but with Kevin Love set to return soon, Ant-Rand’s value will tank again soon

↓ Stephen Curry: he just can’t seem to avoid those dips in the road this season

↓ Amar’e Stoudemire: three of his last four games were a bit pedestrian

↓ Brook Lopez: just when it looked like he was rounding the corner, Lopez is fading away again, racking up 16 points, two rebounds and three assists in his last two games

↓ Darren Collison: averaging just 6.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 29 percent shooting from the field in his last three games

↓ Danilo Gallinari: after two big games after returning from his fractured toe, he’s hasn’t done that much in his last three games
