Please Note: We have a column labeled "Tu/Th", which highlights players who play on slow game days this week.





Waiver Wire Pickups

Let's get to the players you should consider picking up if they are available in your league: With Luka Doncic set to miss the next "two weeks, give or take", it's time to let Jalen Brunson back into our lives. The last time Doncic was out for an extended period of time, Brunson slid into the starting lineup and produced elite stat lines. Pick him up in ALL category and points leagues. Ever since being traded to the Portland Trailblazers, Trevor Ariza has averaged 35-plus minutes a game while chipping in 3-pointers, points, rebounds, and steals. Give him a look if you need low-end fantasy stats across the board. I'll beat the drum once again for Reggie Jackson. Since coming back from injury, Reggie Jackson has averaged 14.2 points, 2 3-pointers, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals while shooting 45% from the field. He won't always be this efficient, but I would still add him in ALL points leagues. Christian Wood is looking more and more like a bankable fantasy stash for the stretch run. The Pistons have been involved in a ton of trade talks, which bodes well for Wood's rest-of-season value. If the Pistons turn him loose after the All-Star break, he could carry your team to the championship. Cam Reddish has cemented himself into a 30-plus minute role due to all of the injuries the Hawks have faced recently. He is providing a steady source of 3-pointers, points, rebounds, and low-end steals. His FG% is lackluster, but as long as he's receiving starter's minutes, he is worth owning. Ever since Jeff Teague was shipped out of Minnesota, Shabazz Napier has played well over 30 minutes a game and is providing middle-round value in 9-category leagues. Add him in you need solid point guard stats. Danuel House Jr. has been playing a lot better as of late. He has been a Top 50 player over the past week and is providing 3-pointers, rebounds, and steals. The Golden State Warriors carousel keeps spinning and Glenn Robinson III is the current beneficiary. He is averaging over 30 minutes a game while providing 3-pointers, points to go along with low-end rebounds and assists. Rude the wave while he's getting the playing time. If you're a Marc Gasol owner or a deep-league opportunist, grab Chris Boucher. He is officially back in the rotation following Gasol's injury and has seen his minutes in the teens. He has upside and just needs consistent minutes to produce. Ever since Willie Cauley-Stein was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, Marquese Chriss has been the main beneficiary. Over the last 7 days, Chriss has averaged 12.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 1.0 blocks in 25 minutes. He's a superb 16-plus team league add.
