Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/2/09
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Chris Douglas-Roberts, New Jersey Nets
40 minutes, 20 points, 7-17 FG, 4-5 FT, 2 three-pointers, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals, 1 block, 4 turnovers
CD-R had his second straight 20 point game. The Nets are banged up right now, and he should have plenty of scoring opportunities going forward.
D.J. Augustin, Charlotte Bobcats
27 minutes, 21 points, 6-14 FG, 9-10 FT, 1 rebound, 2 assists, 3 steals, 3 turnovers
He’s coming off the bench and offers little more than scoring and free-throw percentage at this point.
Larry Hughes, New York Knicks
40 minutes, 20 points, 8-13 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 three-pointers, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover
Hughes had his second consecutive good game for the Knicks. He gets hurt frequently, but it appears as long as he’s healthy he has plenty of fantasy value.
Chase Budinger, Houston Rockets
22 minutes, 17 points, 7-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 2 three-pointers, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover
Budinger had a great game, but don’t put too much stock into it. He’s not worth owning at this point in most leagues.
Corey Brewer, Minnesota Timberwolves
37 minutes, 14 points, 6-21 FG, 2-4 FT, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 5 steals, 2 blocks, 1 turnover
His shooting was terrible, but he really stuffed the stat sheet. Bad teams often produce good fantasy players, and it appears as if Brewer is another example of that notion.
