Weekend Wonder: Gerald Wallace averaged 21.0 points, 12.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 4.0 steals, 1.0 block and 2.0 threes in two games over the weekend. In this stretch, he shot 54 percent from the floor and 89 percent from the free-throw line, while averaging 2.5 turnovers per game. It’s only been nine games, but Wallace has averaged better all-around numbers (top 20 value) for the Nets than those he was putting up in Portland earlier this season.

Lines for Discussion:
Kevin Garnett (3/30): 12-18 FG (67%), 24 Pts, 10 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Blk, 2 TO; in his 25 starts at center for the Celtics this season, Garnett has averaged 16.8 points, 8.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks, while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 86 percent from the free-throw line

Brandon Jennings (3/31): 9-19 FG (47%), 4-4 FT (100%), 2 threes, 24 Pts, 4 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 1 TO; since Ellis’ arrival in that backcourt, Jennings has averaged 17.3 points, 2.8 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 threes, while shooting 43 percent from the floor and 84 percent from the free-throw line

Anthony Morrow (3/31): 8-17 FG (47%), 2-3 FT (67%), 6 threes, 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Stl; going forward, Morrow should be viewed solely as a three-point specialist

Ersan Ilyasova (3/31): 5-11 FG (46%), 8-12 FT (67%), 2 threes, 20 Pts, 16 Reb, 3 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 Blk, 1 TO; since the middle of February, Ilyasova has maintained top 10 status

Rajon Rondo (4/1): 7-13 FG (54%), 1-3 FT (33%), 1 three, 16 Pts, 11 Reb, 14 Ast, 2 TO; Rondo has been a bit of a disappointment this season, but he remains a valuable commodity for owners disregarding free-throw percentage

Waiver-Wire Watch (four stars = must add; one star = keep an eye on him):
Marcus Camby: he racked up 25 rebounds, six steals and 10 blocks in two games over the weekend (***)

Marvin Williams: if you need some points, rebounds and steals, Williams should be a consideration (**)

Chris Singleton: he continues to start and had a nice line Sunday, but is only dependable in deep leagues (*)

Cartier Martin: his first two games back with the Wizards were nice, but reality hit with his zero-point performance Sunday (*)

Willie Green: he’s a roller coaster, making him worth a look in deep leagues only (*)

Byron Mullens: he’s putting up usable numbers lately, so give him a look if you need points and rebounds (***)

J.R. Smith: he’s still a good source of threes and could see more shots with Jeremy Lin out (***)

Reggie Williams: he’s a good bet to put up usable lines while Corey Maggette heals (****)

Nate Robinson: there should be plenty of minutes in that Warriors backcourt for Robinson to claim going forward (***)

Randy Foye: he’s holding onto that starting SG gig and is doing just enough to warrant a pickup in deeper leagues (**)

Injuries:
Lamar Odom (illness): day-to-day

Wilson Chandler (groin): day-to-day

Charles Jenkins (knee): day-to-day

Andrew Bynum (ankle): monitor his status

Chris Johnson (concussion): day-to-day

Ryan Anderson (ankle): day-to-day

Joel Przybilla (knee): day-to-day

Carl Landry (ankle): day-to-day

Dwight Howard (back): day-to-day

Trevor Booker (foot): plantar fasciitis makes him day-to-day

Nene (foot): ditto

Dante Cunningham (ankle): day-to-day

Tracy McGrady (flu): day-to-day

Corey Maggette (Achilles): day-to-day

Kyrie Irving (shoulder): day-to-day

Jeremy Lin (knee): out for the rest of the regular season

For Tonight:
See if Jennings can keep his hot streak going, as the Bucks visit the Wizards.
