Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 6

Greg Oden

Oh no! I am facing a notorious streamer this week in one of my leagues. Since he started this strategy, he is has won two league championships in a row. Personally, I don’t like facing streamers (obviously), but hey, as long as the league is set up to let you get away with it, then I guess I can’t object. I myself am morally opposed to it, so even if I could do it, I choose not to. In any case, I am losing this week’s matchup.

Injuries

Greg Oden (C), Portland Trail Blazers

Same s**t, different day I guess. Oden fractured his left patella on Saturday night and will miss the rest of the season. Oden had come alive this season and was averaging 15.6 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks in his last seven games.

Louis Williams (PG, SG), Philadelphia 76ers

Just a small update on Williams, who suffered a broken jaw over a week ago. He had surgery on November 30th and will miss eight weeks.

Andrei Kirilenko (SF, PF), Utah Jazz

Kirilenko has missed two of the last three games with a sore lower back. Consider him day-to-day as this isn’t a serious injury.

Best Players of the Week

Point Guard

Jason Kidd (PG), Dallas Mavericks

Another solid week for Kidd who contributed to all categories with 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 8.5 assists, 2.8 steals, 1.3 blocks, and 2.8 3PTM.

Honorable Mention: Chris Paul, Charlotte Hornets (first game back: 16.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 15.0 assists, 8.0 steals, 1.0 blocks)

Shooting Guard

Andre Iguodala (SG, SF), Philadelphia 76ers

The threat of Allen Iverson stealing minutes from Iguodala may have you worried. Last week Iguodala put up 23.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.7 steals, and 2.3 3PTM. If he keeps this production up, I don’t see why he should be limited in action.

Honorable Mention: Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers (50.0 FG%, 25.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 2.0 3PTM)

Small Forward

Kevin Durant (SG, SF), Oklahoma City Thunder

How much better can he get? Durant gave owners 34.5 points on 57.5% shooting with 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals, and 3.0 3PTM.

Honorable Mention: Rashard Lewis, Orlando Magic (60.0 FG%, 20.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 4.0 3PTM)

Power Forward

Marcus Camby (PF, C), L.A. Clippers

Camby earns his spot here for the second straight week with 10.5 points, 18.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 3.0 steals, and 2.0 blocks.

Honorable Mention: Carlos Boozer, Utah Jazz (62.7 FG%, 26.7 points, 13.7 rebounds, 1.7 steals)

Center

Brook Lopez (C), New Jersey Nets

Lopez helped the Nets achieve their first victory of the season with 22.0 points on 56.8% shooting. The rest of his line was typical with 8.7 rebounds and 2.0 blocks.

Honorable Mention: David Lee, New York Knicks (71.7 FG%, 18.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals)

You Could Have Done Better

Point Guard

Russell Westbrook (PG), Oklahoma City Thunder

Yikes! Not exactly a stellar performance as Westbrook put up 11.0 points on 25.9% shooting. But hey, at least the 9.5 assists were good.

Honorable Mention: T.J. Ford, Indiana Pacers (37.9 FG%, 66.7 FT%, 7.5 points, 2.5 assists)

Shooting Guard

Ben Gordon (SG), Detroit Pistons

Gordon has cooled off lately after a hot start. He gave us only 13.0 points and he has been limited with a sprained ankle.

Honorable Mention: Eric Gordon, L.A. Clippers (30.0 FG%, 10.0 points, 0.0 assists)

Small Forward

Paul Pierce (SG, SF), Boston Celtics

Our beloved Pierce had a bad week across the board with a 39.3 FG%, 12.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 0.3 steals.

Honorable Mention: Stephen Jackson, Charlotte Bobcats (37.5 FG%, 17.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals)

Power Forward

David West (PF), New Orleans Hornets

West’s numbers are down this season and last week didn’t help as he put up 12.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.5 assists. He also killed your FT% by shooting just 50.0% from the line.

Honorable Mention: Lamar Odom, L.A. Lakers (33.3 FT%, 5.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists)

Center

Chris Kaman (C), L.A. Clippers

Kaman’s numbers weren’t up to par with 13.0 points on 37.0% shooting and 8.0 rebounds.

Honorable Mention: Marc Gasol, Memphis Grizzlies (28.6 FG%, 6.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.0 blocks)

Players to Pick Up

Joel Przybilla (C), Portland Trail Blazers

With Greg Oden done for the season, Przybilla will most likely be starting in his place; had six points and 12 rebounds on Saturday after Oden left game.

Michael Pietrus (SG, SF), Orlando Magic

Pietrus has been on fire recently with 19.5 points on 54.5% shooting with 4.5 3PTM in his last two games.

Raymond Felton (PG, SG), Charlotte Bobcats

Felton averaged a solid 20.0 points on 60.5% shooting last week with 5.7 assists and 1.7 3PTM.

Mike Conley (PG), Memphis Grizzlies

Those in need of three pointers should rent Conley for a few days as he seems to be hot from beyond the arc with six 3PTM in the last two games.

Courtney Lee (SG, SF), New Jersey Nets

Returning from a strained groin, Lee made his first start since November 6th and scored 27 points in the Nets’ first win of the season. His groin injury is just fine, so he should be a decent option for now.

Sports of Boston Basketball League

  • Not only did I lose my matchup 5-4, I also lost Greg Oden for the season.
  • SoB’s KC continues to dominate with a 7-2 win to remain in first place.
  • Recent pickups include: Samuel Dalembert, Allen Iverson, and Kevin Love.
