Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 1/23/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
A.J. Price, Indiana Pacers
Price scored 17 points with a pair of steals. He’s too inconsistent to carry on your roster.
D.J. Augustin, Charlotte Bobcats
Raymond Felton was able to return from his ankle injury, but Augustin still scored 22. I wouldn’t expect him to play like that again anytime soon.
Rudy Fernandez, Portland Trail Blazers
Fernandez resurfaced with Brandon Roy out with 19 points. He should continue to play at a higher level while Roy is sidelined.
Taj Gibson, Chicago Bulls
Gibson was a beast with 16 points and 14 rebounds. This is not a typical performance for him, though he could still be used in daily leagues for rebounds.
Brad Miller, Chicago Bulls
Miller scored 25 while Joakim Noah (foot) was out. If he misses any more games, Miller would see a bump in value.
Carlos Delfino Milwaukee Bucks
Delfino had 24 points, 8 rebounds, and 8 assists. He’s been on fire, averaging 18.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, and 3.4 assists in his last five games.
Hakim Warrick, Milwaukee Bucks
Warrick had 18 points against Minnesota. He’s been ineffective of late so maybe credit the Wolves’ soft defense.
Darius Songalia, New Orleans Hornets
Darius had 20 points and 7 rebounds. It did come in an overtime game. He’s picked up his game of late, but not to the point that makes him an option.
Arron Afflalo, Denver Nuggets
Afflalo had 19 points in that OT game. He’s very inconsistent.
Goran Dragic, Phoenix Suns
Dragic had 20 points and 4 steals. He could see some value with Leandro Barbosa out a month, but keep in mind his game was against defenseless Golden State.
