Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Ersan Ilyasova, Milwaukee Bucks
Ilyasova had a double-double (17 points, 10 rebounds). We know from last year he can produce when he’s gets the opportunity. He’s averaging 14.5 points and 9.5 rebounds in his last two games. I’m just not sure he’ll get enough playing time to make a difference.
Zaza Pachulia, Atlanta Hawks
Pachulia had 16 points on 6 of 7 shooting. This game wasn’t the norm for Zaza so don’t get your hopes up.
Yi Jianlian, Washington Wizards
Yi had 13 points on 6 of 12 shooting with 7 rebounds and 4 blocks. He got 29 minutes last night. If he can continue to see decent minutes, he could be a daily league fill-in option.
Ishmael Smith, Houston Rockets
Smith started for Aaron Brooks (ankle) and had 12 points on 5 of 9 shooting with 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. He has some value over the next 4-6 weeks while Brooks recovers.
Sonny Weems, Toronto Raptors
Weems scored 20 points on 8 of 12 shooting. He offers little other than inconsistent scoring.
Kris Humphries, New Jersey Nets
Humphries had a monster double-double (13 points, 18 rebounds). A game like that can’t do anything but help his prospects. With that many rebounds, he is worth gambling on an increased role.
Jodie Meeks, Philadelphia 76ers
Meeks broke out with 17 points on 6 of 9 shooting, including four three pointers. He gets a short-term bump with Andre Iguodala out, but most nights Lou Williams won’t shoot 2 for 11.
Shawn Marion, Dallas Mavericks
Marion did his best Matrix impersonation scoring 20 points on 10 of 15 shooting with 7 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks. Don’t expect him to continue to put up those kinds of numbers. He’s not that player anymore
Craig Smith, Los Angeles Clippers
Smith made all six of his shots from the field en route to 15 points. He gets a boost with Chris Kaman out, but I’m not sure it’s enough for fantasy lineups.
Rasual Butler, Los Angeles Clippers
Butler took advantage of Baron Davis and Eric Gordon’s absence by scoring 18 points on 7 of 14 shooting. He made 3 three-pointers and grabbed 5 rebounds. He’s a decent fill-in play.
Sebastian Telfair, Minnesota Timberwolves
Telfair scored 16 points on 8 of 14 shooting. The crazy thing is he had just one assist. He’s a decent spot start while Luke Ridnour (hamstring) is out.
Omri Casspi, Sacramento Kings
Casspi scored 17 points on 7 of 14 shooting with 3 three-pointers and 4 rebounds. He’d be more productive if he could get into the 30 minute range, but is still a decent bench option.
