Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 11/9/10
Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Gary Forbes, Denver Nuggets
Forbes had a nice game scoring 16 points on 5 of 9 shooting. He nailed a trio of three-pointers. He’s too inconsistent to have on your roster though.
Mike Dunleavy, Indiana Pacers
Dunleavy was off to a slow start before exploding for 31 points on9 of 13 shooting. He knocked down six treys. He has plenty of ability, but is oft-injured. Ride him while you can.
Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana Pacers
One game after making Taj Gibson look like Tim Duncan, the Nuggets allowed Hansbrough to put up a 20 point, 9 rebound game. He his 9 of his 12 shots and added three assists. I wouldn’t make too much of Tyler’s game, but do note that the Nuggets can be exploited by big men if you are in a daily league.
Ramon Sessions, Cleveland Cavaliers
Sessions had a nice game with 15 points (6 of 11 FG), 4 rebounds, and 5 assists. He’ll need an injury to Mo Williams of Daniel Gibson to get a chance to be a viable fantasy option.
Travis Outlaw, New Jersey Nets
0, 6, 17, 5, 27. Those are Outlaw’s scoring totals for his past five games. He has some ability, but consistency is an issue. Remember that if you’re looking to pick him up based on last night’s 27 point, 7 rebound, 4 three-pointer performance.
Al-Farouq Aminu, Los Angeles Clippers
Aminu scored 20 points on 7 of 10 shooting. He added 8 rebounds and drained two trifectas. He had done virtually nothing to date so don’t rush to grab him.
Jerryd Bayless, New Orleans Hornets
Bayless finally was able to put it together scoring 15 points on 5 of 10 shooting with 9 assists. He’s still backing up Chris Paul so don’t get too excited, but he could be a guy to take a chance on for assists in daily leagues.
Willie Green, New Orleans Hornets
Green scored 19 points on 7 of 10 shooting. He’s been playing better of late, but not to the point where he’s a player to add.
