The NBA is starting to get heated. The Suns, Pelicans and Thunder are all only separated by two games. It would be only one but Anthony Davis was able to knock down a game winning three in Oklahoma City on Friday. Meanwhile, Atlanta defeated the Warriors in what could be a finals preview. Stephen Curry went off for 51 points while hitting 10 shots from downtown, yet Golden State still lost.

And now, here are this week’s Fantasy basketball waiver wire recommendations.

GUARDS

Jordan Clarkson, PG, Los Angeles Lakers (ESPN: 10.0 per cent; CBS: 46 per cent): The rookie from Missouri is now getting his chance as starting point guard of the Lakers. He went from a DNP-CD on January 21 to being their starter overnight. Since the promotion, Clarkson has averaged 13-3-3. He’s not a flashy pick up, but is worth looking at, especially considering the power he’s shown going to the hoop (see video below).

Jared Dudley, SG/SF, Milwaukee Bucks (ESPN: 5.0 per cent; CBS: 23 per cent): Dudley 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.

FORWARDS

Tony Allen, SF/SG, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 3.4 per cent; CBS: 17 per cent): Allen is one of only five players currently averaging over two steals per game, so if you need help in that area, he’s a great choice. He is also leading the league in steal percentage.

Patrick Patterson, PF, Toronto Raptors (ESPN: 11.3 per cent; CBS: 44 per cent): The Raptors’ sixth man has been on a roll lately, averaging 10 points and eight rebounds over his last 10 games. He is starting to light it ip from downtown, having hit 16 three-pointers over this stretch. Patterson has had success all season, but has now become almost a must own.

CENTRES

Kevin Garnett, C/PF, Brooklyn Nets (ESPN: 4.6 per cent; CBS: 21 per cent): There is a sense around the league that this could be The Big Ticket’s final run. If that is the case the soon to be 39-year-old will be giving it all he’s got down the stretch as the Nets are in a dog fight (half a game up on Heat for the eighth seed) for a playoff spot. Currently, Garnett is only playing 20 MPG, however he is averaging 12 points and 12 rebounds per 36 minutes. If his role grows he might not win another NBA title, but he could be the X-Factor on your way to winning a title.

Kosta Koufos, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 0.4 per cent; CBS: 2 per cent): Koufos is a quiet player that is averaging five and five, and doesn’t have a lot of value now, but is a real double-double threat if he becomes a starter. With Marc Gasol playing at an MVP level, Koufos becomes a player that should be owned by all Gasol owners down the stretch.

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: Dion Waiters worth the Wait

January 25, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Nelson stepped in and had 23 points and seven assists as it turns out that Lawson was arrested on Friday morning on suspicion of DUI. With Lawson’s situation unclear, Nelson is a great plug and play moving forward and might be worth a long-term pick up if Lawson ends up missing a long period of time.

The Wire Troll: Brian Roberts Shooting the Lights Out

November 29, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Bradley is a starter that’s averaging over 14 points per game, which means he needs to be owned. He’s a really solid player that is getting pretty big minutes and doesn’t do a lot of bad things. You would like to see Bradley’s peripheral stats go up across the board and he’s not the best shooter, but if you need a boost in points, he’s a great pick up.

The Wire Troll: Iman Shumpert Loving the Triangle

November 8, 2014 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
With the performance Fournier is delivering, he could be the sixth man even when Oladipo returns. It doesn’t look as if the Magic got worked in that trade as we initially thought.

The Wire Troll: Darren Collison Sparking the Clippers

Okay, Fantasy hoopsters, we’ve come to that all important part of the season when, for those of you in ESPN leagues and likely others, the playoffs are upon us. Now is the time to pay close attention to every injury (minor or major) and also be sure to follow NBA happenings on a daily/nightly basis. Also, it’s a good idea to prepare a list of free agent players that can be inserted should you want to take advantage of the extra man games afforded during a playoff matchup (typically two weeks in length). Here are some recommendations for those of you in deeper leagues.
