Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 12/6/09

Dec 7, 2009

Before we get started, check out the current fantasy basketball roundtable debate (click here for the article). You can also look at this week’s NBA schedule as you prepare to set your lineups (click  here for the article).

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

Larry Hughes, New York Knicks
40 MIN, 25 PTS, 5-12 FG, 14-17 FT, 1 3PM, 4 REB, 4 AST, 1 BLK, 2 TO
He’s inconsistent, but as long as he’s part of the Knicks’ rotation, he’ll put up nice numbers.

Delonte West, Cleveland Cavaliers
24 MIN, 21 PTS, 6-9 FG, 9-9 FT, 4 REB, 3 AST, 2 STL, 1 BLK, 2 TO
It looks like he’s turning the corner, but I’m not ready to trust him yet.

Anderson Varejao, Cleveland Cavaliers
29 MIN, 5 PTS, 1-3 FG, 3-3 FT, 12 REB, 3 AST, 3 STL, 1 BLK, 1 TO
He’s hitting the boards. Grab him if you need a boost in that category.

Earl Boykins, Washington Wizards
25 MIN, 18 PTS, 5-11 FG, 6-6 FT, 2 3PM, 2 REB, 4 AST
Boykins has hit double-digits in three straight games now. He’s also been a decent source for assists.

Jonas Jerebko, Detroit Pistons
38 MIN, 10 PTS, 3-8 FG, 3-4 FT, 1 3PM, 11 REB, 1 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
Jonas is averaging 13.0 points and 7.2 rebounds over his past five games.

Quentin Richardson, Miami Heat
36 MIN, 20 PTS, 7-15 FG, 1-2 FT, 5 3PM, 5 REB, 2 AST, 1 BLK, 2 TO
Aside from a dud on 12/3, Q has played well of late. He should be owned in most fantasy leagues.

Dorell Wright, Miami Heat
29 MIN, 19 PTS, 9-13 FG, 1 3PM, 2 REB, 5 AST, 1 STL, 1 BLK
Wright is establishing himself as a regular part of Miami’s rotation, but is still far off from being a viable fantasy player.

Donte Greene, Sacramento Kings
41 MIN, 21 PTS, 8-16 FG, 4-7 FT, 1 3PM, 2 REB, 3 AST, 1 STL, 2 TO
Greene hadn’t hit double-digits for four games. This was a nice effort, but not enough for me to endorse him.

    Les, I’m concerned about Kirilenko and this back injury. Tayshaun Prince is available and he’s coming back from injury soon. Should I pick him up for AK47?

    If you can afford to stash both Prince and AK47 that may not be a bad option. I’d hate to just give him away. When he’s healthy he contributes across the board.
