Fantasy Basketball Box Score Breakouts – 2/8/11

Feb 9, 2011


.
Here is a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
.
Ike Diogu, Los Angeles Clippers
Diogu scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-5 FT) with five rebounds. He has been in double-figures in two of his past three games, but I would still leave him on the waiver wire at this point.
.
Jodie Meeks, Philadelphia 76ers
Meeks scored 16 points (5-11 FG, 4-5 FT, 2-5 3PM) with eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals. He is averaging 12.6 points and 1.2 steals in his past five games.
.
Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks
Williams scored ten points (5-10 FG) with ten rebounds and a block. It was his second straight double-double. He’s averaging 11.3 points and 9.3 rebounds in three games since returning from a back injury.
.
DeJuan Blair, San Antonio Spurs
Blair scored 18 points (9-15 FG) with 12 rebounds with a steal. He is averaging 12.4 points and 10.4 rebounds in his past five games.
.
Will Bynum, Detroit Pistons
Bynum scored 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-3 FT) with two assists and a steal. The outburst was nice, but he has not been productive enough to merit fantasy ownership.
.
Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana Pacers
Hansbrough scored 18 points (6-6 FG, 6-7 FT) with two rebounds. He is averaging 13.2 points and 6.0 rebounds in his past five games.
.
Mario Chalmers, Miami Heat
Chalmers scored 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-7 3PM) with a rebound, two assists, and three steals. He’s a decent plug-in play if you’re looking for steals, but everything else is pretty spotty.
.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Milwaukee Bucks
Mbah a Moute scored ten points (3-6 FG, 4-7 FT) with 14 rebounds. He’s averaging 8.6 points and 9.8 rebounds in his past five games.
.
Tony Allen, Memphis Grizzlies
Allen scored 27 points (9-12 FG, 9-12 FT) with three rebounds, an assist, five steals, and three blocks. He got extra run with Rudy Gay (back) out. This is far from the norm for Allen.
.
Jonny Flynn & Wayne Ellington, Minnesota Timberwolves
Flynn scored 15 points (7-14 FG, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, seven assists, and a steal. He’s playing well with Luke Ridnour out, so ride him while you can. Ellington added 18 points (6-10 FG, 4-4 FT, 2-3 3PM) with a rebound and four assists. He can perform when he gets the opportunity, but he remains as inconsistent as all the Wolves swing players.
.
Courtney Lee & Chuck Hayes, Houston Rockets
Lee scored 23 points (9-15 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-3 3PM) with three rebounds and two steals. Before you get too excited, remember he played the defenseless Wolves. Hayes added ten points (5-10 FG) with 13 rebounds, four assists, and five steals. His numbers could also be bloated, but he is averaging 12.5 points and 10.5 rebounds in his past four games.
