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.
