Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action.

This week, LeBron James created a media storm after unfollowing his own team on social media (disrespect or some kind of inspiration strategy?); Nate Robinson is looking to pursue a career in the NFL; and Anthony Davis has been shut down for the rest of the season after undergoing successful knee surgery.

It’s playoff time in most league formats, so here are some waiver wire recommendations to help take you over the top…

GUARDS

D.J. Augustin, PG, Denver Nuggets (ESPN: 29.4 per cent; CBS: 35 per cent): Though the eight-year vet has bounced around a ton since leaving Charlotte, no matter where Augustin goes he brings a ton of value with him. Landing in Denver at the trade deadline, he’s proved himself to be one of the most reliable reserve guards in the league from a Fantasy perspective. Augustin will dish out a bunch of assists and knock down a couple of treys per game (sometimes, even from halfcourt — see video below), so could wind up being the most reliable reserve guard on your team.

Toney Douglas, PG, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 32.4 per cent; CBS: 26 per cent): Douglas has racked up a ton of minutes and impressive stat lines over his last six contests. His most efficient one came in a Sunday victory against the Clippers as he produced 15 points, nine assists, seven boards and a steal in 37 minutes. Whether Douglas’s production is affected by the return of teammate Norris Cole or not, he’s shown what he can do in the likes of absences and may receive a bigger role in New Orleans.

FORWARDS

Jerami Grant, SF, Philadelphia 76ers (ESPN: 20.4 per cent; CBS: 50 per cent): Grant has been on a progressive climb since a two-game absence. He has now scored over 10 points in four of his last five games and is averaging 30.6 minutes over that stretch. Grant is versatile around the scoreboard, and hopefully could provide you with all the extra production assistance your team needs.

Luke Babbitt, SF, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 2.4 per cent; CBS: 4 per cent): Babbitt generated a season-high 23 points and four boards during a loss against the Heat Tuesday. It seems he’s capable of scoring given ample minutes, and may get just that with Davis out for the season and Ryan Anderson playing on thin measures.

CENTRES

Salah Mejri, Dallas Mavericks (ESPN: 17.6, CBS: 18 per cent): Mejri has racked up two double-doubles (points/rebounds) in his last three games. Though he has received two straight starts, his role a starter is still washy due to the lingering presence of Zaza Pachulia. Still, with these numbers alone, Mejri is worth owning for an immediate impact in points and rebounds.

Omer Asik, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 17.8 per cent, CBS: 25 per cent): Apart from his rebounding ability, Asik doesn’t offer much Fantasy upside. He does, however, provide the occasional scoring boost, which could end up giving your team the sporadic double-double to enjoy.

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: Amir Johnson Powers Forward in Boston

January 10, 2016 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off
Belinelli has scored at least 11 points, canned tons of treys and pitched in with some steals in his last six games — and played 43 minutes in a Tuesday’s double-OT loss to the Mavericks. Obviously, the extra 10 minutes of game time led to the season-high in minutes, but the fact is Belinelli is seeing extra time given a number of Sacramento injuries. He’s worth owning in deeper leagues, and if he could just up his three-point production and keep gloving steals, his minutes and Fantasy value will go up.

The Wire Troll: Kevin Garnett’s Last Run?

February 7, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
udley 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.

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: Jon Leuer Unleashed

December 27, 2014 | by RotoRob | Comments (4)
Still, we’re pimping him again based on some massive minutes lately (39 MPG in the last two). The results haven’t necessarily been there (although he did drop five dimes Friday), but if Lee keeps getting this kind of PT, he’ll start earning kudos for his offense as well as his defense.
