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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Ryan Anderson: averaging 14.6 points, 6.4 rebounds and 2.9 threes in January; he should be owned in nearly all leagues by now
  • Chuck Hayes: getting plenty of run at center for the Rockets, doing everything pretty well
  • Rudy Fernandez: on a hot streak, could benefit so long as the roster is this depleted
  • Mike Miller: monster game Saturday (without Dwyane Wade) deserves attention, but he’s not likely to be anything more than some threes on most nights
  • Ronny Turiaf: lost his starting gig again, but he’s worth monitoring for his shot-blocking ability (continue reading…)

  • Omri Casspi: flavor of the week in Sacramento, hot now but will cool off soon
  • 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…)
