Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/7/09

Nov 8, 2009

Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.

Rafer Alston, New Jersey Nets
44 minutes, 20 points, 7-16 FG, 3-4 FT, 3 three-pointers, 1 rebound, 7 assists, 1 steal, 1 block, 6 turnovers
With the Nets dealing with serious injuries, including starting PG Devin Harris for a couple of weeks, Alston makes a great temporary addition.

Jose Juan Barea, Dallas Mavericks
24 minutes, 4 points, 2-6 FG, 3 rebounds, 12 assists, 1 turnover
JJB is basketball’s version of a handcuff. If Jason Kidd ever went down, he’d pile up the assists. Unfortunately, with Kidd healthy, outburst like this are not the norm.

Toney Douglas, New York Knicks
17 minutes, 16 points, 6-9 FG, 4 three-pointers, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 turnover
Douglas had six points going into tonight’s game. The Knicks got worked over by Milwaukee. Don’t expect a repeat performance any time soon.

Jodie Meeks, Milwaukee Bucks
27 minutes, 19 points, 7-11 FG, 5 three-pointers, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 turnover
You know he can score if given the opportunity. Michael Redd’s injury opened the door for more playing time, but we’ll have to see if he can carve out any fantasy value.

Tyreke Evans, Sacramento Kings
43 minutes, 32 points, 7-15 FG, 16-19 FT, 2 three-pointers, 3 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal, 2 turnovers
With Kevin Martin out, Evans did his best impersonation. He can establish himself as the player to beat in the Rookie of the Year race.

Craig Smith, Los Angeles Clippers
22 minutes, 18 points, 8-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 1 three-pointer, 5 rebounds, 1 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover
Smith is just far too inconsistent to worry about.

Rasual Butler, Los Angeles Clippers

39 minutes, 17 points, 6-17 FG, 3-5 FT, 2 three-pointers, 7 rebounds, 1 assist
With the Clippers’ injuries, Butler is a decent option in daily leagues. He’s too inconsistent for weekly ones.

    Evans should get plenty of hoists for the Kings for quite a long time

    guess they are playing to get to Vegas?

    yeah, I wonder if they’ll do Vegas. If it weren’t for donaghy, I think it would be more likely.
