Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 10

Ty Lawson

With the end of football’s fantasy season being so hectic, I have been neglecting my basketball teams lately. As a result, I dropped to 10th in one of my leagues, thanks in large part to leaving Kevin Durant on my bench all week. Yes, I know I have to get my s**t together, so don’t worry baby, it is all good.

Injuries

LaMarcus Alrdidge (PF, C), Portland Trail Blazers

The injury woes continue for Portland as Aldridge left Wednesday’s game with a sprained ankle. He missed Saturday’s game and will also be out for Monday night.

Carmelo Anthony (SF), Denver Nuggets

Originally thought to be just a bone bruise, the NBA’s leading scorer has a right knee contusion that has forced him to miss two straight games. He is questionable for Tuesday.

Paul Gasol (PF, C), L.A. Lakers

Gasol’s strained hamstring took him out of Sunday’s game and early indications point to him missing moreĀ time with the injury.

Best Players of the Week

Chris Paul (PG), New Orleans Hornets

CP3 reigned supreme over all other point guards with 20.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 9.3 assists, and 2.7 steals. Paul is on pace for a career high in FG% with 51.5%.

Kevin Durant (SG, SF), Oklahoma City Thunder

Durant has become untouchable lately, scoring 30+ points in 7 straight games. Last week was more of the same with 34.3 points on 58.6% shooting to go with 7.3 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 1.8 blocks, and 1.3 3PTM.

Rudy Gay (SF, PF), Memphis Grizzlies

Rudy was just as inspirational as the movie of the same name by scoring 23.5 points with 7.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 2.0 steals, and 1.0 blocks.

Chris Bosh (PF, C), Toronto Raptors

Bosh is back in business after a few rough weeks. He averaged a double-double with 26.7 points and 12.3 rebounds on 54.2% shooting. His 1.3 steals and 1.3 blocks weren’t too shabby either.

David Lee (PF, C), New York Knicks

Lee was once again a double-double machine with 21.9 points and 12.5 points. He also chipped in a decent 4.5 assists (not bad for a center), but of course, he still barely makes those blocks (0.5).

You Could Have Done Better

Jameer Nelson (PG), Orlando Magic

Nelson looked like he was still shaking off rust from his injury with 10.0 points on 38.7% shooting. Nelson is coming off an injury-ridden December where he scored only 7.3 points on 28.6% shooting.

Jason Richardson (SG, SF), Phoenix Suns

J-Rich looks like a shell of his former self these days and last week was no different with 7.0 points on 30.4% shooting. The 1.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 0.7 3PTM were also very disappointing.

Charlie Villanueva (SF, PF), Detroit Pistons

Villanueva was once a good scorer, but he hasn’t done crap lately. Last week was a perfect example as Villanueva scored 5.0 points on 22.2% shooting. Poor production combined with loss of starting job equals a droppable player.

Dirk Nowitzki (PF), Dallas Mavericks

Dirk’s 19.3 points and 7.3 rebounds are good for a lot of players, but now for your top-5 draft pick. Not to mention, he looked ugly scoring those points on 37.5% shooting.

Andris Biedrins (C), Golden State Warriors

Biedrins has looked like crap since returning from a back injury. He put together just 2.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 0.0 blocks last week while shooting 40.0%

Players to Pick Up

Ty Lawson (PG, SG), Denver Nuggets

He has been doing a great job filling in for the injured Chauncey Billups. He has put up 18.5 points and 7.0 assists in his last 4 starts.

Omri Casspri (SG, SF, PF), Sacramento Kings

The NBA’s first Israeli-born player has been starting recently and put together an impressive 19.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, and 2.5 3PTM last week.

RasualĀ  Butler (SG, SF), L.A. Clippers

Those in need of three pointers need to grab Butler, who has dropped 11 three’s in the last four games, leading to over 14.0 points per game.

Luther Head (PG, SG), Indiana Pacers

Since becoming a starter, he is averaging 23.0 points and 2.3 3PTM.

Roy Hibbert (C), Indiana Pacers

He has worked his way back into the starting lineup and has produced 17.6 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks.
