The Wire Troll: Derrick Williams Seeks Redemption in New York

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action.

This week, Nerlens Noel left the opening tip for a bathroom break against the Bulls Thursday (how rude of Mother Nature to call at such a time); Pablo Prigioni notched eight steals in just 15 minutes of playing time against the Heat Wednesday (watch out Gary Payton); and LeBron James took a ball to the face during a warm-up and the King fell down not-so-royally. But don’t worry — the basketball recovered just fine.

Now, let’s get to this week’s waiver recommendations…

GUARDS

Donald Sloan, PG, Brooklyn Nets (ESPN: 9.2 per cent; CBS: 38 per cent) Sloan has broken into the starting lineup, taking over the job for the sidelined Jarrett Jack (knee) and the struggling Shane Larkin. Fourth-year pro Sloan has two more years of experience over Larkin, and put it to great use nearing a triple double Friday with 15 points, nine rebounds and nine assists against the Blazers. With Sloan’s starting role seemingly won, he’s definitely worth owning and probably the best waiver opportunity at the point guard spot that’s still widely available – for now. And if nothing else, the dude has flashed some mad, ankle-busting moves (see video below).

Tony Allen, SG, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 17.1 per cent; CBS: 18 per cent): Allen has been providing some serious “juice” in Memphis recently (take in what we did there), with his most notable performance being a double-double (10 points, 15 rebounds, two steals and a block) against the Celtics Sunday. It’s not clear how long he’ll posing in front of the Grizzlies’ injured backcourt, but based on his recent production; he’s worth taking advantage of – especially for those steals (14 over the five game stretch). Go drink some Allen’s juice now.

FORWARDS

Derrick Williams, SF/PF, New York Knicks (ESPN: 6.5 per cent; CBS: 13 per cent): Williams’ hairdo isn’t the only thing making a bold statement — so are his stats. Not only did he notch his first double-double of the season Tuesday (15 points, 10 rebounds), but followed that up on Wednesday when he snapped for 31 points, seven rebounds and two steals against Brooklyn. Williams has accomplished all of this while coming off the bench, and is currently looking to fill the scoring void with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) sitting. Apparently, the 2012 Slam Dunk competitor is looking for redemption in this year’s Slam Dunk contest as well. Need proof? Just check out the onslaught of dunks in this highlight reel against Brooklyn

Shabazz Muhammad, SF, Minnesota Timberwolves (ESPN: 9.9 per cent; CBS: 20 per cent): Muhammad is earning himself a key role in the Timberwolves’ rotation and has contributed solid numbers to their offense lately. He’s now scored double digits in four of his last five contests, twice going for 20 or more. If you’re in need of a firm addition to your points stat, grab Muhammad.

CENTRES

Spencer Hawes, C/PF, Charlotte Hornets (ESPN: 0.5 per cent; CBS: 6 per cent): Even though Hawes hasn’t done anything eyebrow-raising since returning from injury, his availability shouldn’t be overlooked. The gritty big man is capable of canning it from the three-point line and chipping in with some boards. He’s a far stretch down the wire, but if your bench is deep and you could use some quick small production, give Hawes a look. You never know when he might get a PT boost once he gets back up to speed.

Omer Asik, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 2.4 per cent; CBS: 6 per cent): This one is simple. If you’re in need of some boards, Asik has been a machine, grabbing double-digit rebounds in three of his last four. Be patient and you’ll be rewarded. As he works his way back into the starting lineup, he should be able to contribute more than just boards in due time.

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: Jae Crowder Elevating his Game

February 28, 2015 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Keep a close eye on Irving’s MRI results, because Dellavedova — who also double-doubled on Friday with five assists and two treys — could become a nice short-term option. Dellavedova scored seven points in the first quarter, but managed just seven for the rest of the game. Still, there was a reason this youngster was picked for the Rising Stars Challenge at the All-Star Game earlier this month.

2014-15 Small Forward Rankings

Yet he’s still atop our list here. Why? Well, last season was KD’s finest as he continued to play big minutes, sunk more buckets than ever and enjoyed career bests in assists and points per game. Durantula may have some rust when he returns, but he’ll be dominating in no time.

The Wire Troll: Lavoy Allen Standing Tall

November 15, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Caldwell-Pope has been a nice surprise for the Pistons this season as the former eighth overall pick has really stepped up his game. One of the nicest surprises from this young man has been his three-point shooting. He has made 16 of his last 36 attempts from beyond the arc over the last six games. You would like to see KCP’s other numbers go up, but if you are looking for a three-point specialist, he may be your guy, even if his shooting is inconsistent. He has had games of 1-for-6, 0-for-6 and 1-for-8 from downtown, but when he gets it going, he gets it going. The bottom line is any guy averaging 36 minutes needs to be owned — especially one with this kind of upside.

2014-15 RotoRob NBA Draft Kit: Top 10 Busts

October 28, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
There is nothing worse in Fantasy basketball than having your first or second round pick toss up a stinker of a season, or taking a crack at a veteran bouncing back, who winds up either getting injured or simply continuing to regress. These kind of picks will tank your team faster than a case of Ebola virus in North America sending healthcare workers into panic mode.
