The Wire Troll: Mirza Teletovic Has Hot Hand in Phoenix

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action. Yours truly has returned (stealing back the Troll from your Editor). This year’s NBA All-Star Weekend is in the bag, and the league is back to its regular scheduled programming.

This week, the trade deadline has arrived (a clueless Nick Young didn’t even know when it was) – which included deals like a Jeff Green (Grizzlies) and Lance Stephenson (Clippers) swap, and the desperate dumping of Markieff Morris (Suns) to Washington.

And now onto to this week’s waiver recommendations…

GUARDS

Patty Mills, PG, San Antonio Spurs (ESPN: 17 per cent, CBS: 14 per cent): If you need a quick fix point guard, Mills might just do the trick. He’s still widely available for grabs, and his ability to contribute points and assists off the bench give him some Fantasy value. Coach Gregg Popovich may even look to rest starter Tony Parker as we head closer towards the playoffs, giving Mills looks to produce some deep roster stats.

Alec Burks, SG, Utah Jazz (ESPN: 13.6 per cent, CBS: 39 per cent): Burks is making progress from a foot injury, and may be ready for action soon. Though a return date isn’t pinpointed, his 40 per cent ownership rate on CBS reflects that he is valued in Fantasy leagues. If you could afford to, and could use a scorer, go stash Burks and see if he surprises you upon his return — after all, let’s not forget what a stud he was at the University of Colorado (see video below).

FORWARDS

Brandan Wright, PF, Memphis Grizzlies (ESPN: 9.5 per cent; CBS: 28 per cent): Wright might just have to re-“Brand” the four position in Memphis, especially with Jeff Green gone, starter Marc Gasol (foot) out for the rest of the season and Zach Randolph being shifted over to the five spot. Though Wright battles recently acquired Chris Andersen and Ryan Hollins for the spot, he appears to have the most upside of the three. Wright will be limited and slowly eased back into regular minutes given that he’s just coming back from a knee injury. If you believe in opportunity, here’s your chance to invest in one.

Mirza Teletovic, PF, Phoenix Suns (ESPN: 9.5 per cent, CBS: 29 per cent): Mirza has been a devoted scorer in Phoenix — leading the way with a team-high 25 points to go along with eight rebounds and a couple of assists Friday against the Rockets. This performance may have given him the edge over Jon Leuer as the new starting power forward in Phoenix with Markieff Morris now out of the picture.

CENTRES

Channing Frye, Cleveland Cavaliers (ESPN: 1.4 per cent, CBS: 4 per cent): Cleveland has recently acquired Frye, whose versatility may just send teammate Timothy Mozgov to the bench if Frye performs well and is consistent. It’s too early to see what the spot-up-shooting Frye will make of this “cavalier-of-a-lineup,” but just don’t expect any “stripping” from this Channing (he’s no Magic Mike)…

Cody Zeller, Charlotte Hornets (ESPN: 16.6 per cent, CBS: 40 per cent): Even with Al Jefferson returning Friday, Zeller was able to put up a season-high 23 points with nine rebounds and two assists in a win over the Bucks. It’s unclear if Zeller will keep this up as Big Al eases back towards a full complement of minutes – but if you need some points and boards, then Zeller is a good pickup.

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: C.J. McCollum Flashing His Potential

April 11, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
He’s been massively inconsistent and the free agent to be could be nearing the end of his Lakers’ career. However, Johnson’s recent play may give LA pause to think about bringing him back next season. He’s been logging a big load lately, and while his shooting leaves something to be desired, Johnson has reached double digit points in four of the last five (including a team-high 16 on Sunday), while canning plenty of treys and pitching in with more boards than usual (although, overall, his rebounding is down slightly after averaging a career-best 4.4 last season).

The Wire Troll: Kevin Garnett’s Last Run?

February 7, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
udley 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.

The Wire Troll: Starbury Edition

March 2, 2009 | by Herija Green | Comments (0)
Joel Przybilla has thrived with yet another lingering injury to Greg Oden. Centres Kendrick Perkins, Boston Celtics: With Kevin Garnett out of action, Perkins has a chance to elevate his production, though that hasn’t really happened yet. Still, he showed in December (11.3 PPG, 9.9 RPG) that he could be a fantasy force, which makes him at [...]
