Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/22/09

Nov 23, 2009

Before we get started, let’s take a look at the Week 5 NBA schedule to help you set your fantasy rosters (click here for article).  Now, here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.

Jason Williams, Orlando Magic
39 MIN, 16 PTS, 5-9 FG, 4-4 FT, 2 3PM, 5 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL
Williams is a decent fantasy option with Jameer Nelson out.

Amir Johnson, Toronto Raptors
29 MIN, 14 PTS, 6-7 FG, 2-5 FT, 8 REB, 1 AST, 2 STL, 1 TO
Johnson had a nice little game, but he’ll need to do it more often to make him worthy of a roster spot.

Jarrett Jack, Toronto Raptors
32 MIN, 8 PTS, 3-9 FG, 2 3PM, 7 REB, 11 AST, 1 STL
Jack has his second consecutive solid game. It looks like he’s figuring his role out and could become worthy of a roster spot.

Kendrick Perkins, Boston Celtics
37 MIN, 16 PTS, 6-7 FG, 4-6 FT, 13 REB, 1 AST, 4 BLK, 3 TO
You knew he’d have a monster game against the Knicks.

Nate Robinson, New York Knicks
27 MIN, 19 PTS, 7-11 FG, 2-3 FT, 3 3PM, 3 REB, 1 AST, 2 BLK, 1 TO
You know Nate has this kind of performance in him, especially in this system, but he needs to earn a more defined role before I would consider adding him.

Nazr Mohammed, Charlotte Bobcats
18 MIN, 18 PTS, 8-10 FG, 2-4 FT, 5 REB, 2 STL, 2 BLK
Nice game, but I’m not ready to endorse him.

Marcus Thornton, New Orleans Hornets
38 MIN, 24 PTS, 9-19 FG, 1-2 FT, 5 3PM, 2 REB, 1 AST, 3 STL, 1 TO
Thornton is on fire. Add him if he’s available.

Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City Thunder
32 MIN, 11 PTS, 4-12 FG, 3-4 FT, 13 REB, 5 BLK
Serge was a force on the boards and patrolling the paint. Unfortunately he’s too inconsistent to add right now.

    [...] Hornets You’ve probably noticed Thornton’s name popping up on the daily box score breakouts (click here for the most recent one). He’s been on fire since Chris Paul went down. He averaged 19.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.8 [...]
