The tenth week of the fantasy basketball season saw some devastating injuries and saw breakout performances. Here is a quick recap of all the action.

Hot Hands:

SF Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder – Durant dropped 130 points in four games this past week. He also knocked down 42 field goals, 32 rebounds, 22 assists, and 10 triples. KD may be one of the best in the game, but he can still surpass us every once and awhile.

PG Kendall Marshall, Los Angeles Lakers – Marshall may have come out of nowhere this week, but he put up great numbers. Over the last three games, Marshall has dropped 39 dimes. He has seemingly taken over the one-spot in LA and has become a decent fantasy option in the process.

C Anderson Varejao, Cleveland Cavilers – Varejao grabbed 61 rebounds in four games this past week, including an amazing 18-point, 25-rebounds performance against the Orlando Magic.


Injury Bug:

PG Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers – This week when CP3 hit the deck and injured his shoulder, fantasy fans were devastated. The point guard was having another All-Star quality season and was playing like the best point guard in fantasy. However, Paul will now be sidelined for close to six weeks and will end up missing a good chunk of the season. It has come out that he won’t need surgery to repair the injury, but it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with.

C Ryan Anderson, New Orleans Pelicans – After a hot start, Anderson suffered a nasty cervical stinger. The big man injured his spine this past week and is another reliable fantasy contributor that will be forced to shut it down for a couple weeks.

C Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks – Horford underwent successful surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle this past week. The surgery will likely keep the big man out the rest of the season and will end another productive season for the center.
