Waiver-wire watch:

  • Matt Bonner: worth owning in deep leagues if you desperately need threes
  • Luke Ridnour: he’s playing well and though he’ll be in a timeshare soon, he’s still worth a look
  • Nick Young: if you like streaks, give Young a look
  • Nazr Mohammed: decent source of blocks and boards in deep leagues (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Deron Williams beasted Orlando’s defense and put up 32 points, 8 rebounds, 15 assists, 1 steal and just 1 turnover. He hit 2 threes, shot 50 percent (9-18) from the field and 80 percent (12-15) from the free throw line. He’s not quite the top-15 player many figured he’d be on draft day but his owners have no reason to complain.

Notable lines:
Carmelo Anthony – 16-28 FG (57%), 6-7 FT (86%), 2 3ptm, 40 Pts, 6 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk, 2 TO

Ben Wallace – 2-7 FG (29%), 3-6 FT (50%), 7 Pts, 16 Reb, 3 Ast, 3 Stl, 1 Blk

Charlie Villanueva – 10-19 FG (53%), 6-7 FT (86%), 1 3ptm, 27 Pts, 5 Reb, 5 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO

Rajon Rondo – 10-20 FG (50%), 1-1 FT (100%), 21 Pts, 3 Reb, 11 Ast, 1 Blk, 1 TO (continue reading…)

We haven’t even embarked on the third week of the 2009-10 NBA regular season and there’s already a lot going on – injured bodies, prides and, consequently, damaged fantasy rosters. Let’s take a glance at the week to come.

Game watch:

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

Waiver wire watch:

  • Marreese Speights: still inconsistent, but getting enough minutes to put up decent points, boards and blocks; should be good play in four-game week in deeper leagues
  • Rafer Alston: Devin Harris is still up to four weeks away from returning, Alston will be seeing 40+ minutes on most nights
  • Terrence Williams: with Harris and Courtney Lee out with groin injuries, door is open for Williams to produce (continue reading…)
