Week 9 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire
By Adam McGill
Here is my latest compilation of waiver wire pickups to grab before your competition:
Small Leagues: 8-10 man leagues
PG Devin Harris, UTA – Harris is a very streaky scorer, but has been on fire over the last week.
SG Marco Belinelli, NO – Belinelli is one of the strongest 3-point shooters, averaging 15 points and just over 2 3-pointers in the last eight games.
SF Ersan Ilyasova, MIL – Ilyasova is back starting in Milwaukee and has racked up an outstanding 81 points and 57 rebounds in the last four games alone.
PF Marreese Speights, MEM – Speights has been a strong part Memphis’ success, with 12.4 points and 9.4 rebounds in the last nine games.
C Matt Bonner, SA – Bonner will get plenty of minutes with Tiago Splitter out for two weeks and with Tim Duncan already missing games to rest.
Large Leagues: 10-14 man leagues
PG Isaiah Thomas, SAC – Kings’ coach Keith Smart finally got the rookie into the starting lineup over struggling guard, John Salmons.
SG J. R. Smith, NYK – Smith has been a great compliment to point guard sensation Jeremy Lin while Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony have been out with injuries.
SF Kawhi Leonard, SA – The rookie is getting more and more playing time with all the Spurs’ injuries and is a personal favorite of head coach Greg Popovich.
PF Channing Frye, PHI – Frye continues to be a great 3-point shooter from the power forward/ center position and has hit 7 shots from downtown his last two games.
C Gustavo Ayon, NO – Ayon has started the last seven games for the Hornets, posting a decent 7.9 points and 7.5 rebounds since cracking the starting five.
