Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
Brad Miller, Houston Rockets
Miller scored 23 points on 9 of 16 shooting with 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 1 steal, and 3 three-pointers. He’ll get a brief boost while Yao Ming is out, but probably won’t have another game like this one.
.
Kyle Lowry, Houston Rockets
Lowry scored 13 points with 6 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. He’ll provide a nice boost while Aaron Brooks is out, but will share some time with Ishmael Smith.
.
James Posey, Indiana Pacers
Posey finally made his presence felt scoring 19 points on 7 of 12 shooting. He knocked down 5 threes and grabbed 5 boards. We’ll see if his big game translates into an increased role going forward.
.
Mickael Pietrus, Orlando Magic
Pietrus scored 24 points, all on three-pointers (8 of 11). He added 2 steals. He had done little up to this point so I would wait to see if he gets an expanded role before adding him.
.
Landry Fields, New York Knicks
Fields had 16 points on 7 of 14 shooting with 9 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 steals. He got a little boost because he faced the Wolves, who don’t play much defense.
.
Corey Brewer, Minnesota Timberwolves
Brewer must like Fridays. He was solid last Friday and this week he had 12 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 steals. They were playing the Knicks so don’t put too much stock in his performance.
.
Thaddeus Young, Philadelphia 76ers
Young scored 17 points on 7 of 12 shooting. He didn’t have much to speak of elsewhere. He doesn’t get enough run to be a viable fantasy option.
.
Jose Juan Barea, Dallas Mavericks
Barea scored 19 points on 7 of 14 shooting. He’s been in double-digits in his last three games.
.
Hakim Warrick, Phoenix Suns
Warrick continued to prove while he’s the best fantasy player off the Suns’ bench. He scored 18 points on 6 of 8 shooting with 4 rebounds and 2 steals.
.
Rudy Fernandez, Portland Trail Blazers
Rudy scored 15 points on 5 of 8 shooting, including 3 for 5 from downtown. He added 3 rebounds and 3 assists. He’s averaging 13.7 points, 3 assists, and 2.7 three-pointers in his past three games.
.
Charlie Villanueva, Detroit Pistons
Villanueva scored 30 points off the bench, going 9 of 15 (5 of 7 from three). He’s having a much better season with the Pistons this year.
