The Wire Troll: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s Miraculous Return

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action.

This week, Ex-Cleveland Coach David Blatt’s questionable firing still remains the talk of locker rooms — you have to wonder what the odds of that happening were on sports betting sites; Blake Griffin got into a scuffle with the team’s assistant equipment manager (Blake insisted he carried his own ball); and Chris Bosh, a power forward — declared his interest in this year’s All-Star Three-Point Shootout (Kevin Love and Dirk Nowitzki got a shot, right?).

Now onto this week’s waiver recommendations we go…

GUARDS

Norris Cole, PG, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 13.4 per cent; CBS: 34 per cent): Cole played stellar in the absence of teammate Tyreke Evans (knee) with 17 points, 10 assists and seven boards in a win against the Kings Thursday. Injuries always open opportunity. So if you’re looking for a chance at Fantasy redemption next week, give Cole (who has shown an ability to drive to the hoop and finish — see video below) a look while Evans sits.

Langston Galloway, SG, New York Knicks (ESPN: 10 per cent; CBS: 25 per cent): You have to appreciate the discovery of stat sheet stuffers like Galloway, because it really comes in handy in Fantasy league formats. He did just that in not just one, not two, but in his last three games. Galloway’s most efficient performance came Thursday against the Thunder — resulting in 23 points, seven boards, five assists, three steals and an assist. With Jose Calderon (groin) out indefinitely, Galloway will try to continue to provide a nice all-around game.

FORWARDS

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF, Charlotte Hornets (ESPN: 17.2 per cent; CBS: 39 per cent): A recent news update stated Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) wasn’t expected to return to the court until after the All-Star break. Prior to that, he wasn’t even expected to play this season at all. But the “Kidd” has performed some kind of a miracle by defying odds and returning to action Friday against the Blazers, putting up 13 points, seven boards and an assist in 34 minutes. For an immediate return, this should leave a good enough impression to give MKG a look. Besides, who knows what his next miracle could be…

Josh Smith, PF, Houston Rockets (ESPN: 20 per cent; CBS: 40 per cent): Although Smith could serve up some frustration, he could serve up some Fantasy help as well. He’s an all around box score-filler that plays between the cracks (get your mind out of the gutter). J-Snoov’s best game this week came in a Sunday win against the Mavericks (16 points, three rebounds, two assists, two blocks, two steals). If he can continue to at least occasionally stuff the stat sheet, he’s worth owning in deep league formats.

CENTRES

Nene Hilario, Washington Wizards (ESPN: 7.3 per cent; CBS: 16 per cent): Nene — the man whose first name is also his surname on his CBS Sports profile, has been trying to chime in some of his own magic lately for his team of Wizards. Seeing steady and small bumps in minutes over the last four games, he’s flirted with 30 minutes and dropped 15 points, seven boards and two blocks Friday in a loss to the Nuggets. If Nene could just access that aggressive offensive tenacity he has shown in prior seasons, it might result in extra minutes and higher production. For now, he’s a decent deep league stasher.

Boban Marjanovic, San Antonio Spurs (ESPN: 2.6 per cent; CBS: 8 per cent): The Spurs always save a trick up their sleeves every NBA season; whether it’s acquiring pro talent like LaMarcus Aldridge this season or signing international players like they did with Marjanovic last summer. Marjanovic, the new monster-on-the-block (standing 7’3”) notched his second career double-double with 13 points and 10 boards Wednesday versus the Rockets. Where San Antonio find these guys doesn’t matter. All that matters is you finding Marjanovic on the waiver wire if you’re in need of an instant points and boards combo boost.

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: Jared Sullinger Soaring to New Heights

November 16, 2013 | by Bob Raymond | Comments Comments Off
The highly regarded prospect from Ohio State is showing marked improvement in his second NBA season as he becomes a force in the paint. Sullinger is shooting an impressive .526 from the floor and .864 from the charity stripe. In his last three games, he has registered 17.3 points per game including 26 on Friday against Portland – a great sign after he had missed the previous game with a knee injury. Sprinkle in seven rebounds per contest over this stretch and you have a productive Fantasy power forward.

NBA Draft Recap: Andrea Bargnani

July 11, 2006 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
The 20-year-old Bargnani is a good athlete for his size, with a great jump shot and tremendous potential. He has excellent post skills, but is a very weak defender. However, given that the Raptors are morphing into Phoenix East and will aim to outgun their opponents 120-118 every night, Bargnani’s defensive issues won’t come into play as much as they would in a different environment. The kid isn’t much of a rebounder, either, and that’s something that will hopefully develop over time.
