Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 15

Robin Lopez

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

Chauncey Billups (PG), Denver Nuggets

Billups suffered a sprained ankle last week, but still played through the pain en route to a career-high 39 points against the Lakers. He ended up missing Saturday’s game and is now day-to-day.

Joakim Noah (PF, C), Chicago Bulls

Noah has been fighting a case of plantar fasciitis for a couple of weeks, and now he will be out through the All-Star break with the injury.

Paul Pierce (SG, SF), Boston Celtics

Pierce’s sprained foot cost him two games last week, but he returned on Sunday against Orlando. Keep an eye on this nagging injury.

Best Players of the Week

Russell Westbrook (PG), Oklahoma City Thunder

The second year stud turned in numbers all across the board with 19.7 points, 8.0 rebounds, 9.7 assists, and 3.3 steals.

Stephen Jackson (SG, SF, PF), Charlotte Bobcats

Jackson is enjoying his time with Charlotte and he contributed another great week with 26.3 points on 53.8% shooting with 5.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.7 steals, and 2.7 3PTM.

LeBron James (SF), Cleveland Cavaliers

King James reigned supreme as he put up 35.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, 10.3 assists, 2.7 steals, and 2.7 3PTM.

Chris Bosh (PF, C), Toronto Raptors

Bosh is really flashing his talent in his contract year. For the week, he continued to impress with 30.3 points on 58.3% shooting with 11.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.7 blocks.

David Lee (PF, C), New York Knicks

Mr. Double-Double did what he does best with 24.7 points and 11.0 rebounds on a ridiculous 64.0 FG%. He threw in 3.3 assists and a perfect FT%.

You Could Have Done Better

Jose Calderon (PG), Toronto Raptors

Calderon turned in a craptacular performance as he managed only 6.0 points on 38.5% shooting. His 5.0 assists and 1.0 3PTM were also a letdown.

O.J. Mayo (SG), Memphis Grizzlies

Mayo’s play last week was not as smooth and creamy as his name would suggest. He shot only 33.3% from the field which led to 11.5 points. He only made 1.0 3PTM and put together just 2.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists.

Antawn Jamison (SF, PF), Washington Wizards

Jamison flat out sucked last week as he gave you terrible scoring (9.3) with terrible shooting (2.56 FG%, 70.0 FT%). The 7.7 rebounds were pretty good though, but it doesn’t make up for the scoring.

Luis Scola (PF, C), Houston Rockets

Scola didn’t quite live up to his usual stuff with 10.0 points and 5.0 rebounds on a less than stellar 43.3 FG%. He has also seen decreased playing time in his last three games, averaging less than 24 minutes.

Andrew Bynum (C), L.A. Lakers

Bynum’s rash of injuries contributed to his lackluster performance. He put up 8.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 0.3 blocks. He is likely to sit out Monday against San Antonio.

Players to Pick Up

Nate Robinson (PG, SG), New York Knicks

Robinson averaged over 20.0 points last week thanks to two starts. He will return to the bench this week, but this offensive output has to be encouraging and worth more minutes.

George Hill (PG, SG), San Antonio Spurs

With Tony Parker out, Hill filled in nicely last week by scoring 20.3 points on 53.8% shooting. Parker returned on Saturday, but Hill’s performance has earned him extra time.

Robin Lopez (PF, C), Phoenix Suns

In three games in February, Lopez is giving you good numbers with 13.0 points, 6.7 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks.

Donte Greene (SG, SF), Sacramento Kings

Greene has started 10 straight games and he averaged 15.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.8 3PTM last week. He is also coming off a career high 31 points on Friday.

Ryan Gomes (SF, PF), Minnesota Timberwolves

Gomes has scored double-digit points in six straight games. He has also been raining down three’s with 2.5 last week.

Sports of Boston Basketball League

  • My fall continues as I lost 6-3 and slip into 10th place.
  • SoB’s Teddy regains the top spot after a 7-2 win.
  • Recent pickups include: Carlos Delfino, Jared Jeffries, Chris Andersen, and George Hill.
