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.

The Wire Troll: Kosta Koufos is the King of March

March 13, 2017 | by RotoRob | Comments Comments Off
Recently signed to a 10-day deal, Crawford has paid immediate dividends for the Pelicans, canning 10 treys in three games en route to an average of 16 points. He’s even dropping dimes (six on Saturday) while shooting very well from the field. Crawford is fast and a great ball handler, so has a chance to really excel as New Orleans’ new sixth man. Grab him immediately.

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: Jared Sullinger Makes Surprise Return

April 4, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Exum, the fifth overall pick in lat year’s draft, has shown promise as a rookie but is still very raw. He did break into the starting lineup but that was more for his defensive presence than his offensive ability. Exum wasn’t as aggressive as most fans had hoped, however he has taken that criticism to heart and has started attacking the hoop more. He is still struggling to score but did have a career high 12 assist on Wednesday. It’s a small sample size but the eye test says Exum could finish this season strong, and is a great option to trade for in dynasty leagues as he has a very bright future.

2014 RotoRob Basketball Awards

You saw that he could be a top player in this league… an MVP candidate. It was just a few years away, right? However, Davis continued to improve at an unbelievable rate, getting off to an amazing start in 2014-15, ranking fourth in the league in scoring, ninth in rebounding, and No. 1 in blocks. More telling, he is the league leader in Player Efficiency Rating (PER). If The Brow can keep it up, it will be only the 18th time (minimum 41 games) that a player had a PER of 30.2 and he’ll be only the eighth player to do so. This guy is singlehandedly keeping you in your Fantasy league.
