Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: Playoff Edition

By Adam McGill

The fantasy basketball regular season may be over, but with the playoffs just beginning this is the perfect time to grab a couple last second free agents.  Below is my latest compilation of free agents to pickup before your competitors:

Small Leagues 8-10 man leagues

PG Isaiah Thomas, SAC – Thomas has averaged an amazing 20 points and 6.8 assists in the last five games.

SG Randy Foye, LAC – Foye has really turned it on at the perfect time with a 21.6 points over his last three games.

SF Tayshaun Prince, DET – Prince has been on fire with 20 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.6 assists in the last five contests.

PF Chris Kaman, NO – The “Caveman” is healthy after missing five games with a  mystery illness.

C Nikola Pekovic, MIN – Pekovic is back in the starting lineup, and scored 17 points in his first 19 minutes back in action on Monday.

Large Leagues: 10-14 man leagues

PG Baron Davis, NYK – With Jeremy Lin likely the remainder of the season following knee surgery, Davis is the only other point guard left on the Knicks’ roster.

SG Iman Shumpert, NYK – “Shumpy” will also be back in the starting lineup for the Knickerbockers as they try to make their playoff push.

SF Terrence Williams, SAC – Williams has earned a permanent roster spot after originally only being signed on a 10-day contract.  He played a shocking 32 minutes last game and registered 12 points with 12 rebounds off the bench.

PF Glen Davis, ORL “Big Baby” racked up 18 points and 16 rebounds in Dwight howard’s absence, but his stellar performance will certainly get him more playing time as the season wears on.

C Kevin Seraphin, WSH – Seraphin has averaged 30 minutes in the last five games, posting 13 points and 5.2 rebounds per contest.
