Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 15
Chris Duhon - Sure, a 34 point effort against Golden State helped pad his scoring numbers (18.0 ppg), but what’ I’m interested in is the 8.7 assists he’s averaged in his past three games. Add in 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 steals, and 2.3 three-pointers and you’re in business. He’s shot well enough (47.4% FG and 91.7% FT) to stay in the rotation even when Hinrich returns.
Fred Jones - Bad teams often produce sleeper fantasy players. The Knicks are bad, and Fred has quietly been solid of late. In his past four games, for example, he’s averaged 15.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 2.5 three-pointers per game. He’s shooting 44.7% from the field and 80% from the charity stripe. As a bonus, he qualifies at both SG and SF.
Dorell Wright - In his past four games, Dorell has averaged 15.5 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and one steal per game while shooting 61.1% from the floor without missing any free throws. He also qualifies at both SG & SF.
Thabo Sefolosha - Here’s another Bull that’s been playing well of late. In his past three games he’s averaging 17.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.7 blocks, and 1.3 three-pointers while shooting 44.4% from the floor and 90% from the line. Talk about stuffing a stat line. He also qualifies at both SG & SF.
Mark Blount - Blount has stepped up his game. He still doesn’t hit the boards as hard as he should for a guy his size, but his scoring touch can never be questioned. In his past nine games, he’s averaged 16.6 points and 4.4 rebounds (see). He gets you zero assists (three in his last nine games) and blocks (four in his last nine games). Besides the scoring, he’ll help your shooting percentages (54.6% from the field and 75% from the line) and won’t hurt your turnovers (1.6 per game). He qualifies at both PF & C.
