Week 11 Fantasy Basketball Notes

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The fantasy basketball season is quickly approaching the All-Star break and that means it is getting close to crunch time. Before moving on to the next week, though, let’s take a look at last week’s fantasy action.

Hot Hands:

PG Ty Lawson, Denver Nuggets – Lawson has averaged an unthinkable 17.3 points, 11.3 assists, and 4.3 rebounds per game this month. The point guard has put up huge fantasy numbers game after game and this past week was no different. Lawson posted 17 points and 11.7 dimes in his three contests last week.

C DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento Kings – In three games last week, Cousins racked up an impressive 75 points, 38 rebounds, 27 made field goals, and 10 assists. The big man is finally having that breakout fantasy season and this past week was yet another example.

PG Mike Conley Jr., Memphis Grizzlies – MCJ was on fire during the past scoring period. The point guard averaged 27.3 points, 8.3 assists, and two triples in his three Week 11 contests. Conley has continued to produce, despite the team’s injury problems, and he has quietly developed into a reliable fantasy option.

 

Injury Bug:

PG Jrue Holiday, New Orleans Pelicans – Holiday will be out indefinitely with a broken ankle and his injury was absolutely devastating. The point guard was averaging 14.3 points with 7.9 assists per game and was having a career fantasy campaign.

PF Carlos Boozer, Chicago Bulls – Boozer missed two games last week with knee soreness, but he quickly returned to action. On Friday, the veteran added 19 points and 13 rebounds.

PG Deron Williams, Brooklyn Nets – D-Will has been bothered lately by discomfort in both ankles. He has missed the past four games and will not travel to London for Thursday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks. There is no official time table for the point guard’s return, but he will likely miss most of this week as well.
