Welcome back to another week of our Fantasy basketball waiver wire recommendations. Stephen Curry keeps lighting it up while the Warriors’ amazing run continues; Dwight Howard (knee) returned to the court and put up a double-double; and Iman Shumpert dislocated his shoulder and will miss at least three weeks, meaning Tim Hardaway Jr. is going to get a chance to strut his stuff.

GUARDS

Jodie Meeks, SG, Detroit Pistons, (ESPN: 5.7 per cent; CBS: 13 per cent): Meeks, who we slotted 32nd in our Shooting Guard Rankings, just returned from injury on Friday and made an immediate impact with his energy (see video below). He’s an interesting prospect moving forward, as we believe he will take over the starting job in Detroit soon. If you are feeling confident right now, Meeks is worth a long term pick up moving forward.

Cory Joseph, PG, San Antonio Spurs (ESPN: 2.3 per cent; CBS: 8 per cent): Joseph, who has started three games in the last week, is a must own for Tony Parker owners. Joseph has averaged almost 13 points over his past four games, recording five or more assists three times in that stretch. Parker is old and banged up a little and when he misses a game here or there, Joseph is definitely worth a roster spot.

Tony Allen, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 6.7 per cent; CBS: 22 per cent): If you are struggling in steals, Allen is a nice pick up. His steals over the last seven games: two, two, two, two, two, four, three. Allen has had a steal in 80 per cent of his games this season. He is also shooting the ball well and his scoring hasn’t been bad, however, with Allen, it’s all about the thefts as he’s a difference-maker in that category.

FORWARDS

Reggie Evans, PF, Sacramento Kings (ESPN: 5.8 per cent; CBS: 7 per cent): After having seven straight DNPs in the second half of November, Evans is having an awesome December. Over the past two weeks, he’s had three games of at least 13 rebounds and is averaging 10 boards. You would like to see Evans’ scoring go up (only one double-double in that span) but the rebounds are gold.

Boris Diaw, PF/C, San Antonio Spurs, (ESPN: 11.5 per cent; CBS: 36 per cent): Tim Duncan is getting fewer and fewer minutes, and Diaw can shoot and rebound decently. Diaw is the kind of dude that always seems to be on the periphery of Fantasy value, so you’ll tend to find him on The Wire Troll a few times a season (this is his second appearance already this season). Bear in mind that he was getting a chance to start earlier this season when Tiago Splitter was hurt.

Luis Scola, PF, Indiana Pacers (ESPN: 7.5 per cent; CBS: 29 per cent): Scola, who always seems to shine in international play, is starting to find that groove again in the NBA. After beginning the season as a starter, he’s come off the bench the past eight. The weird things is, Scola lost one-quarter of his PT, yet his production has gone up. In fact, all of Scola’s numbers are on the rise, except his shooting and rebounding (yet he’s still averaging over seven rebounds). With less time on the court, he has been giving his all and playing more efficiently.

CENTRES

Bismack Biyombo, C, Charlotte Hornets (ESPN: 0.5 per cent; CBS: 3 per cent): Biyombo is a block specific guy, averaging almost 1.5 in limited time. His rebounding isn’t bad, but his scoring will hurt you. If you need swats, however, Biyombo is a nice guy to add.

Rudy Gobert, C, Utah Jazz (ESPN: 1.5 per cent; CBS: 16 per cent): Derrick Favors went down with an injury in the opening quarter of Friday’s game, Gobert stepped up and played well in a larger role, setting career highs in assists (four) and blocks (five), and a season high in rebounds (11). This, after setting his career high in points on Monday. Gobert’s shooting percentage is insanely high and he holds the NBA record for largest wingspan (7′11″) and standing reach (9′10″). He will make a nice Fantasy impact and with the Jazz having its annual Christmas road trip coming up, he will have a lot of court time to prove he belongs on your squad.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below who your favourite Fantasy basketball waiver wire pick of the week is.

The Wire Troll: The Fountain of Youth

December 6, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments (0)
A player on the rise, Motiejunas has had five or more rebounds in 14 of 19 games this season. If you need help on the glass, he is a great pick up. He’ll also score a little but outside of that does not offer much help.

2014-15 Top 10 Fantasy Basketball Rookies

December 1, 2014 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
As we all know, Wiggins and his potential went first, and Parker went second to the Bucks. On paper, this looks like a perfect fit as Parker slides in as a starter and focal point of the offense from the get go. His offensive game is extremely polished, and he’s capable from scoring from anywhere on the floor. Parker is also an adept passer and capable rebounder, though he’s unlikely to play in the post all the time given Milwaukee’s collection of bigs that need minutes. Don’t go overboard with your expectations — he’s still a rookie after all — but 15 points and 7-to-8 boards a game seems doable.

The Wire Troll: Brian Roberts Shooting the Lights Out

November 29, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments (0)
Bradley is a starter that’s averaging over 14 points per game, which means he needs to be owned. He’s a really solid player that is getting pretty big minutes and doesn’t do a lot of bad things. You would like to see Bradley’s peripheral stats go up across the board and he’s not the best shooter, but if you need a boost in points, he’s a great pick up.

The Wire Troll: Brandan Wright Making a Play for More PT

November 22, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Brooks started Friday and put up his second straight 12-point effort thanks to a pair of treys. He’s recorded a steal in each of the last three games and given that he’s the only active PG in the Windy City right now, he’s worth playing until his teammates get healthy.
