Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 14

Darren Collison

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.

Injuries

Chris Paul (PG), New Orleans Hornets

One of fantasy’s best weapons will miss up to two months after needing arthroscopic knee surgery to repair damaged cartilage.

Carlos Boozer (PF, C), Utah Jazz

A calf strain will sideline Boozer for most of this week, but he hopes to return this Saturday. Paul Milsap will start in Boozer’s place.

Tony Parker (PG), San Antonio Spurs

Parker has missed two straight games with a sprained ankle. The injury was initially thought to be serious, but Parker has hopes of returning soon.

Best Players of the Week

Chris Paul (PG), New Orleans Hornets

Before the injury, CP3 was delivering the goods with 26.7 points on 59.2% shooting. Adding to his greatness were 5.3 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 3.3 steals, and 2.3 3PTM.

Stephen Curry (PG, SG), Golden State Warriors

Curry turned in his best week of the season by scoring 19.5 points with 4.8 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.5 steals, and 2.0 3PTM.

Kevin Durant (SG, SF), Oklahoma City Thunder

There is no stopping Durant this season as he turned in another masterful performance by scoring 34.3 points on 59.3% shooting. He flashed all-around skills by grabbing 8.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks, and 1.7 3PTM.

Gerald Wallace (SF, PF), Charlotte Bobcats

Wallace is showing off his true skills during a fully healthy season. Last week he gave us a glimpse at what he can do as he averaged a double-double by scoring 27.3 points and grabbing 10.0 rebounds. He added 1.3 steals, 1.3 blocks, and 1.3 3PTM as well.

David Lee (PF, C), New York Knicks

The double-double machine did what he does best by giving owners 27.3 points on 57.9% shooting and 12.0 rebounds. Lee dished out 4.5 assists and even began blocking shots with 0.8 for the week…hey, it’s a start.

You Could Have Done Better

Mike Bibby (PG), Atlanta Hawks

It’s time to let Bibby go. He is officially a bust this season. The futility continued last week with 5.8 points on 32.1% shooting with 1.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists.

Vince Carter (SG, SF), Orlando Magic

Wow, Carter sucked last week. Sorry to be so blunt, but what else can you say when someone shoots 25.6% and scores only 7.3 points. You want more? Then how about his 3.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists?

Rudy Gay (SF, PF), Memphis Grizzlies

Gay was a terrible shooter on both ends with a 34.0 FG% and 63.2 FT%, which led to only 12.5 points. His 4.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks were also a letdown.

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

OK, he had 11.8 rebounds, but you had to sacrifice a lot more to get them. Camby only scored 3.8 points, which was due to his 24.0 FG% and 42.9 FT%.

Al Horford (PF, C), Atlanta Hawks

Horford couldn’t get anything going as he shot a pathetic 37.1% from the field, leading to 7.0 points. He only managed to grab 7.8 rebounds and he even came up short with 0.5 blocks.

Players to Pick Up

Mike Miller (SG, SF), Washington Wizards

They are dropping like flies in Washington. Miller has started three straight and he turned in 15.7 points, 8.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, and 3.0 3PTM last week.

Martell Webster (SG, SF), Portland Trail Blazers

He’s been a very consistent player over the past month averaging 15.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.8 3PTM.

Darren Collison (PG), New Orleans Hornets

Already showing he can fill CP3′s shoes by putting up 17 points and 18 assists in Paul’s absence on Saturday.

Marcus Thornton (PG, SG), New Orleans Hornets

His minutes are increasing and he has started four straight games. He has responded with 17.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.3 3PTM in those starts.

Corey Brewer (SG, SF), Minnesota Timberwolves

Brewer is coming off a very good January where he scored 15.6 points on 47.0% shooting and 1.7 3PTM.
