Here’s a look at some fantasy basketball players that blew up the box score last night.
Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana Pacers
Hansbrough scored 17 points (8-18 FG, 1-2 FT) with ten rebounds and a block. He’s averaging 14.0 points and 7.0 rebounds in his past five games.
Chase Budinger, Houston Rockets
Budinger scored 18 points (7-15 FG, 3-4 FT, 1-3 3PM) with six rebounds, two assists, and a steal. He’s cooled since combining for 57 points in two games last week, but remains a solid fantasy play.
Leandro Barbosa, Toronto Raptors
Barbosa scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 5-5 FT, 3-5 3PM) with three rebounds, two assists, and a steal. Keep in mind that he did his damage in a triple-overtime game.
Sasha Vujacic, New Jersey Nets
Vujacic scored 25 points (7-16 FG, 5-6 FT, 6-9 3PM) with five rebounds, three assists, and a block. Same deal as Barbosa, although he did play 47 minutes.
Wayne Ellington, Minnesota Timberwolves
Ellington scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 FT, 2-2 3PM) with five rebounds, four assists, and two steals. Keep in mind that Wesley Johnson missed the game with the flu.
Francisco Garcia, Sacramento Kings
Garcia scored 18 points (5-6 FG, 4-4 FT, 4-5 3PM) with three rebounds and two steals. Keep an eye on him.
Gerald Henderson, Charlotte Bobcats
Henderson scored 16 points (8-13 FG) with two rebounds. He’s averaging 11.4 points in his past five games.
Randy Foye, Los Angeles Clippres
Foye only scored 13 points (4-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 3-5 3PM) with a rebound, an assist, and two blocks, but Eric Gordon aggravated his wrist injury, making Foye a must-have if he was dropped in your league.
