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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Tyler Hansbrough: starting gig appears secure, averaging 17.7 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals so far this month

Beast of the Night: Dorell Wright put up 27 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and hit five three-pointers against the Lakers. He shot 46 percent (11-24) from the field and had no turnovers, which is even more impressive when you consider that he played all 48 minutes of this contest. Wright is a leading candidate for “Fantasy Steal of the Year” and should be a dependable starter nearly every week going forward.

Lines for Discussion:
D.J. Augustin: 6-12 FG (50%), 8-9 FT (89%), 2 threes, 22 Pts, 3 Reb, 12 Ast, 1 TO

Gerald Wallace: 5-11 FG (46%), 2-2 FT (100%), 2 threes, 14 Pts, 7 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk (continue reading…)

Hedo Turkoglu

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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Brandon Bass: at worst, he’ll be in a timeshare at PF with Hedo Turkoglu; at best, the PF spot
  • Nick Young: his 30-point game on Saturday shows his value with Gilbert Arenas out of town, but he’s still mostly points and threes
  • Marcin Gortat: he’ll get more minutes than he did in Orlando, which makes him worth consideration in most leagues
  • Reggie Williams: his time is short, but so long as Curry is out, Williams is worth owning
  • Leandro Barbosa: he’s scored in double digits in five straight games (continue reading…)

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

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Josh McRoberts: putting up solid numbers across the board lately, playing minutes at center
  • Shane Battier: has blocked at least one shot in 15 straight games, playing well lately
  • Marvin Williams: worth a look so long as Joe Johnson is out
  • Larry Sanders: worth a look if you need blocks in a deep league
  • Glen Davis: has been solid for most of the season (continue reading…)
