The Wire Troll: Amar’e Stoudemire Fills Big Shoes in Miami

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action. It’s an exciting time in the NBA with All-Star Weekend less than a week away.

This week, inspired by the upcoming Slam Dunk contest, a number of people were put on posters such as Kobe Bryant and Solomon Hill (it’s okay Kobe, you’re retiring); NBA Commissioner Adam Silver investigates changing the Hack-a-Player rule (that’s right – perhaps there will be no more picking on Shaq-like free throw shooters); and Reggie Jackson fires back at an upset fan’s tweet (always nice to see player-fan interaction).

Now for this week’s waiver recommendations…

GUARDS

Danny Green, SG/SF, San Antonio Spurs (ESPN: 41 per cent; CBS: 44 per cent): Though Green has been a bit of a Fantasy dud this season, he still holds some bench value. He had a hand all around the stat-sheet in Wednesday’s win against the Pelicans with 16 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal. Green’s best attributes still stem from his three-point shooting and defense. If you’re in desperate need of some treys, steals or blocks, you might want to exploit the little value he has left. Just keep Green away from Zaza Pachulia (see video below).

Jamal Crawford, SG, Los Angeles Clippers (ESPN: 42.8 per cent: CBS: 42 per cent): We gave Crawford some love early on this season in late-November despite some struggles with his shot. He’s addressed that issue in recent weeks and is really starting to fill it up lately with four efforts of 20 or more points over this last five games. Crawford’s play off the Clipper bench has been stellar lately and the fact that he’s canned 52.1 per cent of his attempts from the field over this stretch is all the more reason for you to grab this instant offensive contributor while you can.

FORWARDS

Amar’e Stoudemire, PF, Miami Heat (ESPN: 9.2 per cent; CBS: 9 per cent): Stoudemire played well filling in the big shoes and monstrous wingspan of teammate Hassan Whiteside (oblique), notching two double-doubles this week, and tapping into his vintage defensive player of the year self with four blocks Wednesday against the Mavericks. Hopefully Stat can keep producing with or without injury opportunities, and be as helpful as he is on the Miami Heat bench as he could be on yours, but it’s interesting to note that even since Whiteside has returned, Stoudemire has continued to start the past two games.

Wesley Johnson, SF, Los Angeles Clippers (ESPN: 4.2 per cent; CBS: 9 per cent): Johnson comes off the bench behind aging vet Paul Pierce, but with playoffs around the corner Pierce may be seeing a lot of rest to stay fresh down the stretch. Johnson is stat-filler that may just surprise you with good all-around games on nights Pierce is hibernating.

Justise Winslow, SF/PF, Miami Heat (ESPN: 13.3 per cent; CBS: 36 per cent): Winslow has been playing 30 plus minutes over the last seven games and did his team “Justise” Friday with eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in a win over Charlotte. He’s an all-around type player who could definitely be a Fantasy asset if he keeps getting this kind of PT.

CENTRES

Bismack Biyombo, Toronto Raptors (ESPN: 13.2 per cent; CBS: 28 per cent): Biyombo was last mentioned in late-November in our Wire Troll, as he played great in the absence of injured Jonas Valanciunas.  Though things have slowed down since Valanciunas’ return, Biyombo is still notching tons of boards and hosting occasional block parties.

Meyers Leonard, C/PF, Portland Trail Blazers (ESPN: 10.7 per cent; CBS: 35 per cent): Leonard appears to be getting the starting assignment in the absence of teammate Noah Vonleh (ankle) who’s out indefinitely. With great starts comes great responsibilities. If you’re feeling opportunistic and are in desperate need for help at the five, give Leonard a chance and he might just do enough to save your team from a loss.

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

NBA Today: Progress Slow for Bulls

February 15, 2009 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Chicago’s inability to make much progress has left GM John Paxson’s future in doubt. While the Chicago Bulls have ridden a better offense to slight improvements over last season, they have failed to garner any real momentum this season. In fact, judging by their month-by-month record (1-1 in October, 7-8 in November, 6-9 in December, 7-9 [...]
