Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball. We are now less than a month away from the end of the NBA regular season, so keep your foot on the peddle, peeps.

This week, Kevin Love (knee surgery) returned to the Cleveland lineup; Dwyane Wade will miss the rest of the season with a busted elbow; and Jordan Crawford, who we recommended last week, has impressed New Orleans enough to earn a two-year contract. If you saw this major career renaissance coming from Crawford, we’re guessing you were using U.S. sports betting apps, and if so, can you help us with our team, too?

And now let’s get to this week’s Fantasy basketball waiver wire picks…

GUARDS

Evan Turner, SG, Portland Trail Blazers (ESPN: 13.2 per cent; CBS: 39 per cent): It’s not often you have a chance to add a player with such a diverse skill set as Turner off the wire, but given that he’s been out with a broken hand for almost six weeks, he’s readily available in most leagues. Expected back in action Saturday, he may need a few games to shake off the rust, but here’s a dude that can help in several categories (especially with his passing skills; see video below), so go ahead and scoop him up if you need a guard.

Patty Mills, PG, San Antonio Spurs (ESPN: 16.2 per cent; CBS: 30 per cent): No, we’re not just recommending Mills because it was St. Patty’s Day this week, although that’s probably good enough reason. The fact is, he’s been starting for the Spurs lately with the team dealing with tons of backcourt injuries. This is likely just a short-term add, but while Mills is seeing the PT, he needs to be plugged in.

FORWARDS

Solomon Hill, SF/SG, New Orleans Pelicans (ESPN: 1.1 per cent; CBS: 7 per cent): Hill absolutely exploded on Friday, scoring 30 points (helped by six treys), while adding seven assists, six rebounds and two steals. Woah. The 23rd overall pick from 2013 is getting more touches so far in March, so give him a look in deeper formats.

Nikola Mirotic, SF/PF, Chicago Bulls (ESPN: 20.6 per cent; CBS: 50 per cent): Just last week we reported that Mirotic had been yanked from the rotation, but he was slotted right back in on Monday and he responded with 24 points, following that up with 14-, and then 15-point efforts. His shooting touch still leaves something to be desired (9-for-26 over the last two games), but now that Wade is done for the season, there’s a golden opportunity for Mirotic to pick up some of that slack.

CENTRES

Skal Labissiere, C/PF, Sacramento Kings (ESPN: 9.8 per cent; CBS: 28 per cent): Who? Talk about a dude off the Fantasy radar, but Labissiere announced his presence with authority, going off for a career-high 32 points on Wednesday. This rookie has benefited from the trade of DeMarcus Cousins, but Labissiere seems to be really taking advantage of his extra chances now, so it’s time to add him.

Alex Len, Phoenix Suns (ESPN: 21.1 per cent; CBS: 43 per cent): Len (hip) returned to action Wednesday, taking a baby step with just 17 minutes of action (yet still flirting with a double-double), but ramped up to 28 minutes on Friday, putting up nine points, 10 boards, three steals, two blocks and two assists. If you need a big, grab Len and hope he stays healthy down the stretch as he’s capable of contributing some solid numbers.

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

Joel Embiid and John Wall Lead Trending NBA

November 17, 2016 | by Scott Levy | Comments Comments Off
No one expected Embiid to be this good, this fast. The 76ers are wisely limiting his minutes and have so far avoided playing him in back-to-backs. Nevertheless, in fewer than 25 minutes per game, this dude is averaging 18 points and over seven boards with multiple blocks. Embiid is proving to be someone that other teams have to game plan for in order to contain. He already thought he was the face of the 76ers before he even saw court time. Now it seems evident to the rest of us as well.

Video Game Review: NBA 2k17

October 25, 2016 | by Herija Green | Comments Comments Off
As with most sports games, NBA 2k17 contains an individual-based mode (MyCareer) and a team management sim (MyGM) as its two primary options. Starting with the former, it continues with the series’ unique approach by creating a narrative aspect and pairing it with the sports. Unfortunately, it works better in concept than execution.

2016-17 Fantasy Basketball Sleepers and Busts

October 20, 2016 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off
Despite Rose being at the top of the depth chart, Jennings — who looks healthy this preseason — is still projected to have an increase in overall production compared to his last two seasons, although it would be nice to see some consistency (he was 0-for-6 on Wednesday after a solid effort on the weekend).

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

February 6, 2016 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off
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.
