Jared Dudley

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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Jared Dudley: he’s started his last four games and has averaged 18.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, three steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 threes in that stretch
  • Tony Allen: he won’t hit many threes, but Allen is doing a lot in just about every other column, especially steals
  • Jerryd Bayless: he had a great line in his start Saturday without Jose Calderon; if Calderon misses more time with his bum hammy, Bayless will finish the season as a stud
  • Ed Davis: he’s racked up three double-doubles in his last four games and is worth a look if you need big-man stats, especially while Andrea Bargnani is out
  • Richard Hamilton: averaging 22.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals and one three-pointer per game since March 23
  • Mike Bibby: with Mario Chalmers still out, Bibby is a decent option at PG in deeper leagues
  • Jordan Crawford: he’s fresh off of a triple-double; make sure he’s not available in your league
  • Marvin Williams: he’s fading in and out, but he’s worth some consideration
  • Maurice Evans: give him a look if you need threes
  • Chuck Hayes: he’s a solid pickup if you need help for your frontcourt
  • Anthony Tolliver: he’s been mostly good lately and will benefit if Kevin Love has to shut things down
  • Derrick Favors: give him a look if you need blocks
  • Kwame Brown: it’s hard to believe, but he’s a somewhat-qualified big man if you’re in the market for one
  • Chris Andersen: he’s a blocking machine but got hurt recently
  • Dante Cunningham: he’s worth monitoring
  • Brandon Bass: a steady source of points and a few rebounds
  • Spencer Hawes: if you need a big man, give Hawes a look
  • Jodie Meeks: losing steam lately, but still a good guy for threes
  • Nikola Pekovic: so long as Manna’s out, Pekovic is worth a look
Injury watch:
  • Andris Biedrins (ankle): making progress but his timeline for returning is still up in the air
  • Nenad Krstic (knee): MRI came back negative; day-to-day
  • Joakim Noah (ankle): day-to-day
  • Al Harrington (Achilles): game-time decision today
  • Arron Afflalo (hamstring): ditto
  • Chris Andersen (ankle): day-to-day
  • Ryan Gomes (knee): day-to-day
  • Chris Kaman (flu): day-to-day
  • Carlos Delfino (ribs): day-to-day
  • Darko Milicic (ankle): day-to-day
  • Jason Richardson (knee): missed Saturday’s practice with knee tendinitis; monitor his status
  • Gilbert Arenas (illness): won’t play today
  • Steve Nash (illness): out today; targeting Tuesday for his return
  • Andrea Bargnani (ankle): day-to-day
  • Jose Calderon (hamstring): day-to-day
  • Tyson Chandler (back): questionable today
  • Sebastian Telfair (flu): day-to-day
  • Lou Williams (hamstring): monitor his status
  • Kevin Love (groin): check his progress
  • Kris Humphries (ankle/heel): day-to-day
  • Tracy McGrady (back): monitor his status
Stock watch:
↑ JaVale McGee: he’s been getting some traction lately, averaging 18.5 points, 12.3 rebounds and 3.2 blocks since March 23

↑ Brandon Jennings: averaging 22.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.5 steals and two threes since march 25

↑ Marc Gasol: putting up top-15 numbers lately; he’s averaged 11.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.8 steals and two blocks per game since March 23

↑ Chauncey Billups: his last three games have been solid — he’s racked up 22 assists and no turnovers in this stretch

↑ Carmelo Anthony: he’s scoring and rebounding well lately, and continues to see a bump in value thanks to hitting more threes in that Knicks offense

↓ Dirk Nowitzki: he’s struggling from the field lately

↓ Amar’e Stoudemire: he continues to look pedestrian

↓ Jason Kidd: he’s putting up mediocre numbers lately and stands to get rest down the last stretch of the season

↓ Eric Gordon: his shooting has been erratic in recent games

↓ Joe Johnson: his numbers lately have been about as extraordinary as his name
