  • Ersan Ilyasova: also holding onto his starting gig, also hit double-digit points in five of his last six

  • Mike Miller: averaging 11.1 points, two threes, 8.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists since Jan. 22

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…)
