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.
Carter sprained his toe over the weekend, but the good news is that x-rays came back negative. He is day-to-day.
Martin’s sore left shoulder has kept him out two straight games and he is still listed as day-to-day.
A good source of boards and blocks, Lopez will be M.I.A. for the next two weeks due to a bulging disc in his back.
This is what you want from your point guard. Williams scored 20.3 points and dished out the valuable 12.8 assists. He added 5.8 rebounds and 2.0 steals for good measure.
Looking for a big payday this offseason, Wade lit it up with 25.3 points on an unheard of 65.4 FG%. Filling out the stat sheet, Wade grabbed 6.5 rebounds, 8.8 assists, 2.8 steals, and 1.8 blocks.
Those MVP chants are getting louder, especially with 31.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, and 1.3 3PTM. Best of all, he did it with great shooting on both fronts (50.6 FG%, 93.3 FT%)
Injury problems are clearly a thing of the past as Granger threw down 31.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks, and best of all, 3.8 3PTM.
Holy Crap! Okur was just plain dominant in four games last week as he obliterated the competition with 19.8 points, 11.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 2.0 blocks and 2.5 3PTM.
I fail to see anything positive about this past week when Williams put up 6.3 points on 29.2% shooting. I should just stop there, but I will mention the 0.3 3PTM and 0.7 steals too.
7.7 points on 32.1% shooting to go with 1.7 rebounds, 0.3 steals and 0.7 3PTM. Let’s just hope for a bounce-back year next season.
Carter sucked even before the injury. His 11.5 points, 2.5 assists, and robust 42.1 FG% were clear proof of that.
Ok, you aren’t expecting the world, but you are hoping for more than 7.0 points and 7.0 rebounds. Not to mention, his 45.5 FT% was enough to induce vomiting.
Hawes had been enjoying a nice little run recently with double-digit points in five straight games. That came to a screeching halt last week as Hawes shot 39.3%, leading to 8.7 points. He threw in (or threw away rather) 4.3 rebounds, and a 57.1 FT%.
With the numerous injuries to Orlando, Anderson should see more time on the court. He has done well in his last two games, scoring 19 points in each contest.
He is still doing well in his newly expanded, end-of-the-season role. Last week, he put up 16.5 points and 11.3 rebounds in three games.
March is his best month, as he is putting up 14.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and a 51.1 FG%.
He is putting up better stats with his increased number of minutes. Last week, he gave us 14.8 points, 1.0 blocks, but more importantly, he rained down 3.0 3PTM.
He shows no sign of slowing down, averaging a double-double last week with 13.3 points and 11.3 rebounds in four games. He also threw in 2.3 blocks to boot.
