Waiver Wire Pickups

Let's get to the players you should consider picking up if they are available in your league: Gorgui Dieng is the last big man standing in Memphis following the injuries to Jaren Jackson Jr. and Brandon Clarke. He is set to take on a HUGE role over the next few weeks and should be owned EVERYWHERE. Dieng has provided Top 50 value over the past week averaging 12.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 1.7 blocks. Shake Milton has started in place of Ben Simmons over the past three games. In those three games, he is averaging 15.8 points, 3.8 three-pointers, 3 rebounds, 4 assists, and 1 block. He's worth starting in ALL leagues while Simmons is sidelined. I have pounded the table all year long for Damion Lee to be universally owned. He's had no competition for minutes at the shooting guard position all season. Over the past week, Lee is averaging 17 points, 3.7 three-pointers, 5.3 rebounds, 4 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks. The return of Stephen Curry will inevitably eat into Lee's production, but he should still provide Top 150 value for the rest of the season. James Johnson has been providing Top 75 value since the All-Star break. Over the past week, Johnson has averaged 13 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1 steals, and 2 blocks. He should be owned in ALL leagues as an ELITE 3&D specialist. Shabazz Napier finally took the starting job away from Ish Smith last Wednesday and produced 9 points, 1 three-pointer, 1 rebound, 5 assists, and 2 steals. The results weren't spectacular, but as long as he's starting, he should be owned in both points and category 12-team leagues. With Kevin Porter Jr. on the verge of being unleashed, it's time to pick him up in ALL category leagues and deep points leagues. He has the potential to provide owners with solid points, three-pointers, rebounds, assists, and steals for the rest of the season. Another big man taking advantage of multiple injuries is Harry Giles III. He has been a great resource for points, rebounds, and field-goal percentage. Over the past week, Giles III has averaged 15.3 points, 9.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while shooting 60% from the field. Give him a look in 14-plus team category leagues while Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III are on the sidelines. Kent Bazemore has always been capable of providing low-end across-the-board stats, and he's been getting heavy minutes lately. Give him a look if you need a little bit of everything in category leagues. Justin Holiday makes my streamer's list EVERY SINGLE WEEK for his 3&D stats. Lately, he's been providing Top 100 value averaging 11.3 points, 2.8 three-pointers, 1.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.5 steals, and 0.8 blocks while shooting 48% from the field. Ride the wave. Lastly, Furkan Korkmaz is another Philadelphia 76ers guard taking full advantage of the absence of Ben Simmons. He is a three-point specialist who contributes low-end points, rebounds, and assists.
