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: Mario Chalmers Growling in Grizzlyland

November 21, 2015 | by Adrian Wallace | Comments Comments Off
The Grizzlies acquired Super Mario Tuesday in a trade with the Heat. Since his debut in Memphis, that’s exactly what he’s been – superb. In just 21 minutes per game over the last three contests, Chalmers has scored double digits, including a 29-point performance Tuesday against the Thunder. We repeat — against the Thunder. He clearly didn’t fear Oklahoma’s defensive roar as he attacked the paint and received 15 free throw attempts (canning 13). Chalmers will hit treys, get to the line and a hit a ton of free throws for your team.

The Wire Troll: Zach LaVine Playing at a High Level

March 29, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
For a player that has played on eight teams in just four seasons, Smith might have finally found a home in Philadelphia. As a starter for the 76ers, he’s averaging 15 points and seven assists while shooting 47 per cent from downtown. Smith isn’t a flashy pick up, but could be an under the radar pick to help you win your league.

The Wire Troll: Jason Richardson is Back

March 7, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
After not playing in the NBA for over two years due to injury, Richardson is back on the court and starting to look like his old self. In 11 games he has averaged 12 points, four boards and a steal while shooting 38 per cent from deep and 90 per cent from the line. J-Rich is sitting out Saturday for rest, so he isn’t all the way back. But when he plays he is worth something.

NBA Today: Pacers Not Done Yet

February 23, 2009 | by RotoRob | Comments (2)
Jim O’Brien has orchestrated an improved offense for Indy, but the D? Ugh. The Indiana Pacers showed modest improvement in 2007-08, but this year has been a bit of a disappointment thanks to an awful start that buried the team. Believe it or not, with three wins in their past four games, the Pacers are actually [...]
