Welcome back for another week of Fantasy basketball. Stephen Curry just scratched ex-coach Mark Jackson off his Christmas card list; Portland has clinched its first Northwest Division title since co-winning it in 2009; and Kyle Lowry (back) is aiming to return to the Raptors before the end of the regular season.

Now, without further ado, here are this week’s Fantasy basketball waiver wire picks.

GUARDS

Dante Exum, PG/SG, Utah Jazz (ESPN: 0.8 per cent; CBS: 22 per cent): Exum, the fifth overall pick in lat year’s draft, has shown promise as a rookie but is still very raw. He did break into the starting lineup but that was more for his defensive presence than his offensive ability. Exum wasn’t as aggressive as most fans had hoped, however he has taken that criticism to heart and has started attacking the hoop more. He is still struggling to score but did have a career high 12 assist on Wednesday. It’s a small sample size but the eye test says Exum could finish this season strong, and is a great option to trade for in dynasty leagues as he has a very bright future.

Pablo Prigioni, PG/SG, Houston Rockets (ESPN: 0.7 per cent; CBS: 1 per cent): Prigioni is a sneaky low risk-high reward pick up. After being a great player in Europe and trying his luck in the NBA, he’s slowly started to find his groove. Now with the Houston Rockets, where Patrick Beverley is out for the season, Prigioni could play a vital role down the stretch. When Prigioni was with the Knicks, he showed some serious passing skills (see video below), and with his assists and minutes up, he might be worth a late pick up.

FORWARDS

T.J. Warren, SF, Phoenix Suns (ESPN: 1.3 per cent; CBS: 6 per cent): Warren is finally getting his chance to play, seeing 25 minutes a game over the last three while averaging 16 points on 72 per cent shooting. While it might be too little, too late for this season, this rookie (the 14th overall pick last year) looks like a intriguing dynasty option.

Marvin Williams, SF/PF, Charlotte Hornets (ESPN: 5.0 per cent; CBS: 22 per cent): Williams has been impressive since the All-Star break, but especially over the last four games. He has hit double figues in every game and is starting to get his rebounding stats up as well. Williams is savy veteran who could play a big part in the Hornets final push for a playoff spot.

CENTRES

Jared Sullinger, PF/C, Boston Celtics (ESPN: 9.3 per cent; CBS 43 per cent): In one of the more interesting stories of the season, Sullinger was ruled out for the season after getting hurt on February 11. However, on Friday the Celtics announced he had been cleared to return. Suddenly a great Fantasy option throughout the season who had been dropped in a lot of leagues is now out there. Sullinger only played three minutes on Friday as team works him back slowly, but who knows what he will do down the stretch? He has high upside and likely needs to be owned in every league.

Henry Sims, Philadelphia 76ers (ESPN: 0.7 per cent; CBS: 9 per cent): We’ve recommended Sims a couple of times this season, most recently at the end of January. It wasn’t the best call, as his FT shooting was worse in February and he sunk fewer buckets in March. However, this is a speculative pick based on the fact that Nerlens Noel had to come out early Saturday with an eye injury. If Noel is going to miss time, Sims could have nice value. A good spot up shooter, Sims has to seize this opportunity to prove he deserves to be part of the team’s go-forward plan. On Monday, he got 25 minutes of action, flirting with a double-double and adding a steal. Sims more or less fell out of the rotation last month, so he absolutely needs to step up now or his future will be in doubt.

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: Cam Atkinson Shining in Columbus

March 30, 2015 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
The Sabres may be in full “McEichel Mode,” but don’t tell Gionta that. An experienced NHL captain, he’s not one to give up and quit, and his performance last week proves it: in three games, Gionta had three goals, four points, a minus-3 rating, three power play points, 18 shots on goal, eight face-offs won, three hits and four blocked shots.

The Wire Troll: Zach LaVine Playing at a High Level

March 29, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
For a player that has played on eight teams in just four seasons, Smith might have finally found a home in Philadelphia. As a starter for the 76ers, he’s averaging 15 points and seven assists while shooting 47 per cent from downtown. Smith isn’t a flashy pick up, but could be an under the radar pick to help you win your league.

The Wire Troll: Benoit Pouliot Produces in Unproductive Edmonton

March 22, 2015 | by Dakota Case | Comments Comments Off
In 419 career games, Pouliot has 92 goals, 186 points and a plus-47 rating over the course of nine seasons with Minnesota, Montreal, Boston, Tampa Bay, New York (Rangers) and Edmonton. His best points-per-game season came in the lockout shortened 2013 campaign with the Lightning in which he collected eight goals, 20 points and a plus-8 rating in 34 games. In regards to his highest number of points per season, Pouliot set a career high of 36 (15 goals, 21 assists) and seven power play goals in 80 games with the Rangers last season. A solid playoff run with five goals, 10 points and a plus-8 rating in 25 postseason games elevated him as an intriguing option on the free agent market.

The Wire Troll: Randy Foye Finding His Groove

March 21, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Foye is a nice late season option if you need a three-point shooter. Over the past four games, he’s scored 16 or more and has made 15 three pointers in that span. Foye’s assist numbers aren’t bad, and he is a good free throw shooter also. He could be a big help to your team.
