Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/14/09
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night, but before we get started check out this week’s NBA schedule as you prepare to set your fantasy rosters (click here to see the article).
Bobby Brown, New Orleans Hornets
23 minutes, 13 points, 6-13 FG, 1 three-pointer, 2 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 turnovers
Bobby led the Hornets in assists in the first game without Chris Paul. He should be a decent play while CP3 is out.
Will Bynum, Detroit Pistons
31 minutes, 20 points, 6-13 FG, 8-9 FT, 8 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 turnovers
Bynum is one of four capable scorers on the Pistons while Rip Hamilton is out, so he’ll get plenty of looks.
Earl Boykins, Washington Wizards
31 minutes, 20 points, 7-12 FG, 5-5 FT, 1 three-pointer, 1 rebound, 3 assists, 4 turnovers
Not a bad debut for the Wizards, but he won’t get many opportunities when Randy Foye returns.
Eric Maynor, Utah Jazz
41 minutes, 24 points, 9-16 FG, 6-7 FT, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal, 3 turnovers
Another gem for Maynor. He certainly earned a spot in the rotation when Deron Williams returns.
J.J. Hickson, Cleveland Cavaliers
38 minutes, 20 points, 7-13 FG, 6-7 FT, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 turnovers
Second straight strong showing for Hickson. Looks like he could be added to fantasy rosters in deep leagues.
Trenton Hassell, New Jersey Nets
44 minutes, 17 points, 5-12 FG, 7-7 FT, 6 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, 1 turnover
Hassell’s averaging 12.6 points per game over his last five. He’s also averaging 42.2 minutes over that span. He’s actually worth adding as a short-term fix in deep leagues while the Nets get healthy .
Udonis Haslem Miami Heat
39 minutes, 28 points, 12-20 FG, 4-4 FT, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 turnover
Haslem is a 11 point, 10 rebound guy. Why would he explode last night? Because I played him naturally. In all seriousness, Haslem is a must-own in most formats.
Brad Miller, Chicago Bulls
29 minutes, 14 points, 5-9 FG, 4-4 FT, 7 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 2 turnovers
Nice game for the big man, but he’s been very inconsistent even with Tyrus Thomas out.
Ryan Hollins, Minnesota Timberwolves
30 minutes, 15 points, 7-9 FG, 1-1 FT, 8 rebounds, 3 assists
Hollins had a big game while Al Jefferson attended to personal matters. Don’t expect this performance to be routine.
Luc Richard Mbah aMoute, Milwaukee Bucks
38 minutes, 8 points, 3-5 FG, 1-2 FT, 1 three-pointer, 12 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 3 turnovers
Nice rebound total, but it came against the Warriors so don’t put too much stock in it.
Charlie Bell, Milwaukee Bucks
39 minutes, 14 points, 4-9 FG, 4-5 FT, 2 three-pointers, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal, 1 turnover
He played Golden State.
George Hill, San Antonio Spurs
32 minutes, 18 points, 7-12 FG, 2-2 FT, 2 three-pointers, 2 rebounds, 3 steals, 1 turnovers
Hill has been playing well of late, but this game was impressive considering Tony Parker and Tim Duncan returned.
I typically don’t cover players who are widely owned, but Brandon Jennings‘ 55 point outburst, even against Golden State, was ridiculous.
