Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball. Adrian is afflicted with whatever is going around these days, so the Troll will be penned by your editor this week. We’ll do our best to maintain his standards!

This week, the NBA Hall of Fame finalists were announced, headlined by two of the most colourful players of all time — Shaquille O’Neal and Allen Iverson (you hardly needed any sports betting tips to figure out this pair was HOF-bound); Houston is apparently shopping Dwight Howard; and the league was shocked by the news that New Orleans Pelicans assistant coach Monty Williams’ wife was killed in a car crash.

Without further ado, here are this week’s Fantasy basketball waiver wire picks…

GUARDS

Jerryd Bayless, PG, Milwaukee Bucks (ESPN: 24.3 per cent; CBS: 32 per cent): Bayless was hurting a couple of months ago, but he returned to action in mid-January and is starting to roll. His touches are up and he’s hoisting — and sinking (55.6 per cent over the last five) — more treys lately. Hell, Bayless even pulled in eight boards on Thursday, but don’t get used to that. Milwaukee’s backcourt situation is kind of up in the air right now, but for the time being, he looks like a solid play (as long as he doesn’t keep making awful fouls like the one in the video below).

E’Twaun Moore, SG, Chicago Bulls (ESPN: 11.3 per cent; CBS: 28 per cent): Jimmy Butler (knee) will miss the next 3-to-4 weeks, opening the door for Moore, who has been off the Fantasy radar for the past few years. Moore has taken advantage so far, shooting extremely well of late, periodically pitching in with some nice offensive games while adding respectable rebound, assist and steal numbers. He’s also been filling it up from downtown, and while he’s been a tad inconsistent, you can’t ignore the overall numbers he’s been averaging while Butler is sidelined.

FORWARDS

Jared Dudley, SF, Washington Wizards (ESPN: 26.6 per cent; CBS: 25 per cent): Yup, that’s right, bitches. Just after Christmas, we recommended Dudley, and while his ownership has risen since then, he’s still available in around three quarters of leagues. This dude has been crazy good from downtown (46.6 per cent on the season) and there’s talk a team like Dallas might try to trade for him with Washington slipping out of the playoff race in recent weeks. Dudley has been getting slightly more touches of late, and if that continues, he has the ability to be a real contributor in the second half.

Maurice Harkless, SF, Portland Trail Blazers (ESPN: 2.4 per cent; CBS: 10 per cent): Last season, we projected Harkless as a top 30 option in our Small Forward Rankings, but he failed to come close as injuries limited him to 45 games and even when active, his PT dropped off the table. This season, he’s had a fresh start in Rip City and his three-point shooting has bounced back somewhat, but it’s his recent play that has really caught our eye. Harkless has seen bigger minutes over the last week, contributing 14, 11 and then 19 points (the latter effort of which was paired with 13 boards — both of those numbers representing season highs). Pick him up while he’s balling.

CENTRES

Bobby Portis, C/PF, Chicago Bulls (ESPN: 6.4 per cent; CBS: 36 per cent): Just after Christmas, Portis headlined our recommendations, but his PT really dipped in January. Well, it’s on the rise again now with Joakim Noah (shoulder) out for the remainder of the regular season. Portis recorded a double-double in the last game before the break as he is starting to justify his status as the team’s first round pick last year. There is major upside here, even in a crowded Bulls’ frontcourt.

Steven Adams, Oklahoma City Thunder (ESPN: 18.4 per cent; CBS: 27 per cent): Adams is another player we recommended in December, and his ownership keeps creeping up, but he remains available in the majority of formats. He justified our faith with some nice rebounding numbers in December and then saw even more PT in January. So far this month, Adams’ minutes are up further as he’s become even more entrenched in the Thunder rotation. He’s responded by sinking more buckets (at a sweet 62.5 per cent rate over the last five) while doing a much better job of getting to the line (although his work at the charity stripe leaves something to be desired). We’re expecting Adams to be a regular double-double threat in the second half.

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: O.J. Mayo Gets His Groove Back in Milwaukee

December 12, 2015 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off
Zeller has been mostly stellar (yes, we’re poets at heart) over the four games (okay, maybe not so much over the last two). Regardless, his season-high of 20 points with six boards and two blocks on Monday did raise some eyebrows. With Jefferson (calf/suspension) out, Zeller will try to take advantage and gain more minutes and confidence in the low post. Playing pivot is giving Zeller a chance to shine in areas we don’t normally expect from him; he’ll contribute with boards, points and occasional blocks.

The Wire Troll: Isaiah Canaan Gets Keys to Sixers Offense

February 21, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Barnes is a starter on a good team who is averaging 30 minutes. He’s a safe bet to not hurt you and definitely isn’t going to kill you. Barnes will hit a three or two per game making him if not a flashy pick up, a solid one.

2014-15 Top 10 Fantasy Basketball Rookies

December 1, 2014 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
As we all know, Wiggins and his potential went first, and Parker went second to the Bucks. On paper, this looks like a perfect fit as Parker slides in as a starter and focal point of the offense from the get go. His offensive game is extremely polished, and he’s capable from scoring from anywhere on the floor. Parker is also an adept passer and capable rebounder, though he’s unlikely to play in the post all the time given Milwaukee’s collection of bigs that need minutes. Don’t go overboard with your expectations — he’s still a rookie after all — but 15 points and 7-to-8 boards a game seems doable.

2014 NBA Draft Profile: Jabari Parker

August 9, 2014 | by Steve Krebs | Comments Comments Off
It is interesting to see the different situations the two tops picks are in; top pick Wiggins is not even certain to have a starting gig and his name was in the media constantly tied to being dealt once his 30-day contractual clause is over (and sure enough, where there was smoke, there was fire in this situation). Second pick Parker, however, is being embraced as a top star that the team cannot wait to grow with. We’re not trying to say he will carry them to the championship — or even to many more wins than the league-worst 15 the Bucks managed last season. We just think the team, with the addition of Parker, is headed in a successful direction.
