Every Monday, I will report on the events of the past week of fantasy basketball. I will go over each position and what particular player that week stood out from all the rest. As always, I will start off with this week’s notable injuries to report on.
Roy is continuing to battle a sprained hamstring which has kept him out of four of the last five games. He is expected to miss the rest of this week as well.
Williams will miss the next 4-6 after suffering a severely sprained shoulder.
Anthony sprained his ankle on Saturday against New Orleans. He is listed as day-to-day.
Billups lands here for the second straight week after scoring 25.7 points on 52.4% shooting to go with 5.3 rebounds, 7.7 assists, and an absurd 4.3 3PTM.
The hometown hero earns a spot here after a beautiful week with 23.0 points on 57.1% shooting while throwing in 4.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.7 steals, and 2.0 3PTM.
Durant continued to keep the Thunder afloat by scoring 31.0 points with 8.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals, and 1.3 3PTM. He shot 92.2 % at the free throw line and he has scored 25+ points in 18 straight games.
Boozer turned in some outstanding shooting numbers with a 71.0 FG% which resulted in 26.5 points. He added 11.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals, and 1.5 blocks to his week as well.
Talk about a dominating week! Bogut dwarfed all other centers by averaging a double-double with 20.3 points and 10.3 rebounds. He flashed his muscle in blocks, where he collected 4.0 for the week.
Harris and the Nets continue to struggle with Harris falling hard last week with 8.3 points on 30.0% shooting. The 6.0 assists weren’t bad, but it didn’t make up for everything else.
Marin is still trying to shake off rust from his recent return from injury and it showed last week as he scored only 10.5 points on 31.7% shooting. His 63.6 FT% and 3.3 assists were also a letdown.
He can’t spell his own name and last week he couldn’t do anything right as he scored a below average 15.8 points on a dismal 39.3% shooting and terrible 68.8 FT%. His 5.5 rebounds were also not up to his standard.
Harrington’s numbers are going down every month and last week continued the trend as Harrington scored 11.0 points on 38.5% shooting with only 4.0 rebounds.
Okafor’s 7.8 rebounds were good, but his 8.5 points were terrible. Adding to his bad week was his usual terrible FT%, clocking in this week at a robust 50.0%.
He has started three straight game and has averaged 18.8 points and 8.2 rebounds in his last five games.
Gooden has double-digit points in four straight games and in his one start last week, he pulled down an incredible 18 rebounds.
Brewer is enjoying his best month of the season with 14.9 points and 1.5 3PTM. He has scored 20+ points in three of his last seven games.
Gibson is the only PG left standing in Cleveland after injuries to Mo Williams and Delonte West. LeBron can’t score all the points, so Gibson should see his fair share of opportunities as a starter.
He’s come alive as of late with 14.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks in his last six games.
