Weekend Wonder: Brook Lopez had himself a bloody good weekend in London, where he averaged 29.5 points, eight rebounds, two assists and 5.5 blocks in two games against the Raptors. He shot 61 percent from the field, 82 percent from the free-throw line and averaged 2.5 turnovers in his stint overseas. Lopez’s owners probably wish the Nets would play more games across the pond, but they should just take this and savor it while they can. Ideally, this will give the big man some momentum heading into this last stretch of fantasy basketball.

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…)
