Fantasy Basketball Roundup: Week 19

Rodney Stuckey

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

Tony Parker (PG), San Antonio Spurs

Parker is once again hurt, but this time, it is serious. The Spurs guard broke a finger in his right hand. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Parker will miss up to six weeks.

Rodney Stuckey (PG, SG), Detroit Pistons

A scary moment for Pistons fans as Stuckey collapsed on the Detroit bench on Friday night. As of today, Stuckey is still undergoing tests and his return is still uncertain.

Marcus Camby (PF, C), Portland Trail Blazers

Camby finds himself in familiar territory as he missed Sunday’s game against Denver with a sprained ankle. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Best Players of the Week

Dwyane Wade (PG, SG), Miami Heat

The soon-to-be free agent had himself quite a week with 33.3 points and 12.0 assists. His shooting was good (49.3%) and he threw in 5.0 rebounds, 2.3 steals, and 1.7 3PTM.

Darren Collison (PG, SG), New Orleans Hornets

He has gone from temporary replacement to featured stud around here. Collison is still doing a phenomenal job filling in for Chris Paul and last week was more of the same as he scored 19.7 points on 56.5% shooting with 10.3 assists, 2.3 steals, 1.0 3PTM, and a perfect FT%.

LeBron James (SF), Cleveland Cavaliers

Even for LeBron this was ridiculous. Averaging a near triple-double for the week, King James put up 29.3 points, 9.0 rebounds, 9.0 assists, 2.7 steals, 1.7 blocks, and 1.3 3PTM.

David West (PF), New Orleans Hornets

The Wild Wild West was one of the best forwards this past week as he scored 16.7 points on 50.0% shooting while adding 8.0 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 2.7 blocks.

Andrew Bogut (C), Milwaukee Bucks

Bogut showed off great offensive and defensive skills with 16.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, and an incredible 4.3 blocks.

You Could Have Done Better

Steve Nash (PG), Phoenix Suns

A real stinker for Nash as he scored just 9.8 points on 41.0% shooting. Yes, the 10.8 assists were great, but the 0.5 steals and 0.3 3PTM were crap.

Joe Johnson (PG, SG, SF), Atlanta Hawks

J.J. shot a pathetic 33.8% from the field, resulting in only 15.5 points. His rebounds and assists were decent, but they don’t make up for the terrible shooting.

Hedo Turkoglu (SG, SF), Toronto Raptors

Turk’s struggles continue in Canada as he scored only 8.0 points on 36.4% shooting and his assists, rebounds and 3 PTM were also down.

Marcus Camby (PF, C), Portland Trail Blazers

Even before the injury, Camby stunk up the court in two games as he scored only 2.0 points on 33.3% shooting with 7.0 rebounds and 1.0 blocks.

Andrea Bargnani (PF, C), Toronto Raptors

Something stinks…and it was Bargnani’s playing last week. How stinky? Well how ’bout 11.3 points on 35.7% shooting with 4.7 rebounds and missing all of his free throws? Yeah, leaves a bad taste in your mouth don’t it?

Players to Pick Up

Quentin Richardson (SG, SF), Miami Heat

Richardson played 35+ minutes in every game last week and it resulted in 20.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 2.3 steals, and a ridiculous 4.7 3PTM.

Rodrgue Beaubois (PG, SG), Dallas Mavericks

The injury to Jason Terry has opened up playing time for Beaubois, who averaged 21.0 points and 2.3 3PTM last week.

Carlos Delfino (SG, SF), Milwaukee Bucks

Delfino has caught fire lately and he averaged a double-double last week with 16.0 points and 10.0 rebounds in three games.

Marcus Thornton (PG, SG), New Orleans Hornets

If you don’t pick Thornton up now, then I will just join your league and take him for myself. Last week was another gem as he put up 24.0 points on 56.0% shooting with 3.3 3PTM.

George Hill (PG, SG), San Antonio Spurs

Hill will get the most playing time with the injury to Tony Parker. As a starter this season, he is averaging 16.7 points.
