Fantasy Hoops Waiver Wire Bin Vol. 18
Travis Diener - It seems as if Jamaal Tinsley is never coming back. In the meantime, Diener is doing just fine without him. In his last three games he’s averaging 15.7 points, 8.3 assists, 1.7 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 0.7 three-pointers per game. Unlike Tinsley, he’s even shooting at a decent clip (47.1% from the floor without missing a free throw).
Willie Green - Willie has picked up his play recently, averaging 18.3 points, 3.0 rebound, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 0.5 three-pointers per game over his last four games. He’s shot 49.2% from the floor, but you’ll have to deal with the 65% he shot from the line.
Luis Scola - With Yao out, Scola has stepped up his game. In his last five games he’s averaging 14.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.0 steals (although all five came in one game). He’s shot 62.7% from the floor and 66.7% from the line. As a plus, he qualifies at SF, PF, and C. He’s making Argentina proud.
Carl Landry - Landry has also helped shoulder Yao’s load for Houston. In his past five games he’s averaging 10.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 0.6 assists, and 0.6 steals. He’s shot a ridiculous 71.4% from the floor and 66.7% from the line.
Kendrick Perkins - Perkins has stepped up his game recently as well. In his last three games he’s averaging 12.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 3.3 blocks, and 1.0 steal. You’ll forgive his 54.5% free throw shooting when you factor in the 84.2% he shot from the floor over the stretch.Well, that’s it from the Waiver Wire Bin. Free free to leave your comments.
