The Wire Troll: Gary Harris Fever Mounts in Denver

Welcome back to another week of Fantasy basketball action.

This week, Dirk Nowitzki is hoping to give the Mavs a Christmas gift with his return to action later this month; Allen Iverson got honoured with a Hall of Fame ceremony; and another man deserving of Hall of Fame recognition, NBA reporter Craig Sager, unfortunately passed away.

In the spirit of Sager’s colourful fashion and spirit, we hope to recommend waiver pickups to brighten your Fantasy winning chances…

GUARDS

Garrett Temple, SG, Sacramento Kings (ESPN: 1 per cent; CBS: 3 per cent): Temple has scored double-digits, dished out at least two assists and grabbed at least one steal in each of his last three games. He’s living up to his last name with such “holy” performances lately (check out his ungodly pass in the video below). Pick Temple up if you’re looking for a Fantasy blessing.

Gary Harris, SG, Denver Nuggets (ESPN: 21.4 per cent; CBS: 50 per cent): After a month-long absence because of a foot woe, Harris came back strong in a Thursday win over Portland with 18 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block. You would think he never left with a game like this, and that he would have already been picked up half way through reading this.

FORWARDS

Marquese Chriss, PF, Phoenix Suns (ESPN: 2.6 per cent; CBS: 27 per cent): With Alex Len (hip) sidelined, rookie Chriss is stepping up to the plate. Chriss has been given up to 31 minutes, which allowed him to register a double-double in points and rebounds Thursday against the Spurs. If you’re looking for an opportunity with a widely available young forward, he’s your guy, just note that Len is scheduled to return Saturday, so you may want to see how Chriss’ PT is affected.

Larry Nance Jr., PF, Los Angeles Lakers (ESPN: 7.8 per cent; CBS: 21 per cent): Nance Jr. didn’t score a lot in his last appearance (four points), but he grabbed 11 rebounds while adding two blocks, a steal and an assist. This doesn’t just reflect his inability to score a ton, but also his versatility on the glass and around the statsheer. If you need a random guy to do random things on random nights, look up Nance Jr.

CENTRES

Timothy Mozgov, Los Angeles Lakers (ESPN: 13.4 per cent; CBS: 43 per cent): Mozgov has a lot of work to do before he starts seeing consistency in his performance to match his PT. However he still is an NBA champ, and double-doubles are never ignored here on the Troll. Mozgov got one Wednesday against the Nets (12 points, 13 boards). If that’s enough to entice you, and you’re in need of some help off the glass, give him a look.

Kosta Koufos, Sacramento Kings (ESPN: 1 per cent; CBS: 6 per cent): With Rudy Gay and Omri Casspi out, Koufas is rolling, reaching double-digit points in three straight games including a double-double with three blocks on Friday. Koufas had one of his best campaigns yet last season, spent mostly coming off the King bench. This season, he’s mostly starting and enjoying a better rebounding effort, so it’s nice to see him adding some scoring off late, too. And if DeMarcus Cousins gets a suspension for getting in the face of a local reporter, Koufos’ roll could go on for a a while longer.

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: Joe Ingles is Jingling all the Right Bells

January 31, 2015 | by McCade Pearson | Comments Comments Off
Ingles is a dude that quietly fills up the stat sheet and is earning more minutes because of it. For example he had a game recently in which he appeared to do nothing and when you looked at the final stats he had eight points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Ingles is not a must-own yet, but as he gets more and more comfortable in the NBA he could be worth something in all formats.

The Wire Troll: Marcus Thornton Supplying Buckets in Brooklyn

March 8, 2014 | by Bob Raymond | Comments (0)
In need of a true scorer off the bench, the Nets have seen Thornton record games of 25 and 20 points, respectively over the past week. He is very adept at shooting the three-ball and going to the foul line with success. If your Fantasy team needs offensive firepower for the stretch drive, don’t hesitate to add Thornton.

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 [...]

When he’s throwing it down like this, it’s no wonder that Nene is the NBA’s leading shooter. Welcome to Part Three of the Field Goal percentage series, where we will take a look at the big fellas and their success flushing the rock. Centres, by nature, play down low and usually shoot a much higher percentage [...]
