The Wire Troll: Kevin Garnett’s Last Run?

The NBA is starting to get heated. The Suns, Pelicans and Thunder are all only separated by two games. It would be only one but Anthony Davis was able to knock down a game winning three in Oklahoma City on Friday. Meanwhile, Atlanta defeated the Warriors in what could be a finals preview. Stephen Curry went off for 51 points while hitting 10 shots from downtown, yet Golden State still lost.

And now, here are this week’s Fantasy basketball waiver wire recommendations.

GUARDS

Jordan Clarkson, PG, Los Angeles Lakers (ESPN: 10.0 per cent; CBS: 46 per cent): The rookie from Missouri is now getting his chance as starting point guard of the Lakers. He went from a DNP-CD on January 21 to being their starter overnight. Since the promotion, Clarkson has averaged 13-3-3. He’s not a flashy pick up, but is worth looking at, especially considering the power he’s shown going to the hoop (see video below).

Jared Dudley, SG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks (ESPN: 5.0 per cent; CBS: 23 per cent): Dudley has been playing well lately in large part to his minutes going up. He has cracked the 30-minute mark in three of his last four games, which has helped his scoring. You would like to see a little more, but if things keep trending this direction Dudley might be worth a pickup.

FORWARDS

Tony Allen, SF/SG, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 3.4 per cent; CBS: 17 per cent): Allen is one of only five players currently averaging over two steals per game, so if you need help in that area, he’s a great choice. He is also leading the league in steal percentage.

Patrick Patterson, PF, Toronto Raptors (ESPN: 11.3 per cent; CBS: 44 per cent): The Raptors’ sixth man has been on a roll lately, averaging 10 points and eight rebounds over his last 10 games. He is starting to light it ip from downtown, having hit 16 three-pointers over this stretch. Patterson has had success all season, but has now become almost a must own.

CENTRES

Kevin Garnett, C/PF, Brooklyn Nets (ESPN: 4.6 per cent; CBS: 21 per cent): There is a sense around the league that this could be The Big Ticket’s final run. If that is the case the soon to be 39-year-old will be giving it all he’s got down the stretch as the Nets are in a dog fight (half a game up on Heat for the eighth seed) for a playoff spot. Currently, Garnett is only playing 20 MPG, however he is averaging 12 points and 12 rebounds per 36 minutes. If his role grows he might not win another NBA title, but he could be the X-Factor on your way to winning a title.

Kosta Koufos, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 0.4 per cent; CBS: 2 per cent): Koufos is a quiet player that is averaging five and five, and doesn’t have a lot of value now, but is a real double-double threat if he becomes a starter. With Marc Gasol playing at an MVP level, Koufos becomes a player that should be owned by all Gasol owners down the stretch.

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

2014 RotoRob Basketball Awards

February 6, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
You saw that he could be a top player in this league… an MVP candidate. It was just a few years away, right? However, Davis continued to improve at an unbelievable rate, getting off to an amazing start in 2014-15, ranking fourth in the league in scoring, ninth in rebounding, and No. 1 in blocks. More telling, he is the league leader in Player Efficiency Rating (PER). If The Brow can keep it up, it will be only the 18th time (minimum 41 games) that a player had a PER of 30.2 and he’ll be only the eighth player to do so. This guy is singlehandedly keeping you in your Fantasy league.

The Wire Troll: Joe Ingles is Jingling all the Right Bells

January 31, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Ingles is a dude that quietly fills up the stat sheet and is earning more minutes because of it. For example he had a game recently in which he appeared to do nothing and when you looked at the final stats he had eight points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Ingles is not a must-own yet, but as he gets more and more comfortable in the NBA he could be worth something in all formats.

The Wire Troll: Dion Waiters worth the Wait

January 25, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Nelson stepped in and had 23 points and seven assists as it turns out that Lawson was arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of DUI. With Lawson’s situation unclear, Nelson is a great plug and play moving forward and might be worth a long-term pick up if Lawson ends up missing a long period of time.

The Wire Troll: Brandan Wright Rising in Phoenix

January 17, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
A player that has been buried deep down on the bench, Fredette is finally getting some playing time in New Orleans thanks to the Austin Rivers trade. We wouldn’t quite pick Fredette up yet unless you’re desperate, however he is worth keeping an eye on. We all know he can score as he had 13 points (while dropping five dimes) in limited minutes on Friday.
