For those of you participating in your Fantasy basketball playoffs, best wishes as you attempt to secure a championship. With that goal in mind, we recommend the following players to help with your last-minute push.

GUARDS

Jarrett Jack, PG, Cleveland Cavaliers: With the tricep injury suffered by Kyrie Irving, Jack is now the Cavs’ starting point guard. Jack will certainly get the minutes and offensive opportunity while Irving is sidelined (minimum two weeks), so don’t hesitate to add Jack to your roster, as he’s proved he can score (see video below).

Avery Bradley, SG, Boston Celtics: Bradley is finally starting to return to full strength after being plagued by a chronic ankle injury. His scoring has improved over the last several games and it shouldn’t be long before he regains his starting job.

Ray Allen, SG, Miami Heat: Will Father Time ever catch up to Allen? In his 18th NBA season at the age of 38, he can still fill up the stat sheet. Over his last four games, Allen is averaging 18.8 points and three treys. With the Heat still vying for home court advantage throughout the playoffs, he should continue to spark the Heat bench attack.

Danny Green, SG/SF, San Antonio Spurs: Green has been very erratic scoring the basketball this season, but certainly has the ability to be a proficient scorer. Like the aforementioned Allen, he’s been hot over his last four games including games of 14, 15 and 16 points with a total of 12 three-pointers made.

FORWARDS

Drew Gooden, PF, Washington Wizards: When power forward Nene Hilario injured his knee, the Wizards opted to sign the veteran Gooden to a 10-day contract. Gooden has performed far above expectations with several double digit scoring games and ample rebounds off the bench. His contact has now been extended through the end of the season and Fantasy owners may want to follow suit and add the vet for the home stretch.

Shawn Marion, SF/PF, Dallas Mavericks: Six weeks ago, we gave the Matrix some love, but he remains available in over 50 per cent of ESPN leagues. He’s hit double figures in four straight games and had his ninth double-double of the season on Wednesday, adding five dimes and two steals. Marion is still occasionally capable of helping you across the board.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, SF/SG, Milwaukee Bucks: Impressive rookie Nate Wolters fractured his shooting hand on Thursday and this should provide additional opportunity for Antetokounmpo, the Bucks first round pick last year. “Alphabet,” as he is appropriately nicknamed, is only 19, but has the skills and ability to be a solid future NBA player.

CENTRES

Gorgui Dieng, Minnesota Timberwolves: Dieng was a key member of the NCAA defending champion Louisville Cardinals before being selected in the first round by the Wolves. Since starting pivot Nikola Pekovic has been out with assorted leg ailments, Dieng has opened eyes with increased playing time. On Thursday, he registered 22 points and 21 rebounds versus Houston following an 11-board, five-block performance earlier in the week.

Omer Asik, Houston Rockets: Asik was a solid double-double contributor for the Rockets last season before Dwight Howard came to town, but when Superman suffered a mildly sprained ankle this week, it led to a pair of productive games for Asik. Keep an eye on Howard’s situation, knowing that Asik is a very capable backup.

Zaza Pachulia, Milwaukee Bucks: Pachulia is another dude we pumped six weeks ago, but he’s recently taken over as the starting centre and is getting it done. Don’t expect too many monster nights like he enjoyed Tuesday, but the aging vet is doing enough to provide some value in deeper formats.

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

Okay, Fantasy hoopsters, we’ve come to that all important part of the season when, for those of you in ESPN leagues and likely others, the playoffs are upon us. Now is the time to pay close attention to every injury (minor or major) and also be sure to follow NBA happenings on a daily/nightly basis. Also, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of free agent players that can be inserted should you want to take advantage of the extra man games afforded during a playoff matchup (typically two weeks in length). Here are some recommendations for those of you in deeper leagues.

The Wire Troll: Alex Killorn Moving On Up

March 9, 2014 | by Chris Wassel | Comments Comments Off
It is a rare case when there is a double nine on the weekend. What is a double nine? Simply, it’s when Sunday means as much as Saturday. This was a phrase we coined about 15 years ago when we used it to win a Fantasy hockey league on the last day because we checked schedules well in advance. Believe us, when we say it pays off.

The Wire Troll: Marcus Thornton Supplying Buckets in Brooklyn

March 8, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
In need of a true scorer off the bench, the Nets have seen Thornton record games of 25 and 20 points, respectively over the past week. He is very adept at shooting the three-ball and going to the foul line with success. If your Fantasy team needs offensive firepower for the stretch drive, don’t hesitate to add Thornton.
