Friday Headlines:

Dwight Howard out 10 Days at least.  Time to add Glen Davis off of all waiver wires.

Brandan Wright could be the answer to peoples Kevin Love problems.  13 Points, 8 Rebounds, and 3 Blocks.  He is playing a lot of time at Center off the bench.

Grant Hill 25+ Minutes, Shannon Brown 27+ Minutes.  Brown is going to lose value quickly with Hill returning.

Kyle Lowry 25+ Minutes, 11 Points and 7 Assists.  Should not be long before he is back dominating.

Jordan Crawford, John Wall, and Kevin Seraphin take 47 of the Wizards 51 FG attempts when looking at all starters.

J.R. Smith finally explodes with 4 3PTM and 23 Points as Shumpert is minorly hurt.  If Shumpert misses the game, J.R. can blow up again.

Derrick Brown could be the new Bobcat flavor now that Maggette is done for the season.  21 Points, 9 Rebounds, 1 Steal.  He has played 30+ Minutes in 3 of the past 4 games.

MarShon Brooks explodes for 22 Points.  Fluke more than anything.

Andre Iguodala continues to lose all value with 11 Points, 4 Rebounds, and 4 Assists.

Magic and Orlando was a blowout, game does not count in fantasy land.

Amir Johnson plays 40+ Minutes now that Andrea Bargnani is out.  10 Points, 9 Rebounds, 2 Blocks, 1 Steal.  Nice flier pick.

Lester Hudson plays 19 Minutes in the Cavs blowout.  The Hudson week is slowly fading away completely.

Danny Granger continues to be the highest scoring Pacer.  That is 11 straight games.

Andre Miller outplays Ty Lawson again.  I would stay away from the situation if I could in weekly lineup leagues.  Daily leagues keep letting Lawson roll and hope for the best.

Paul Millsap surprisingly plays after being listed as Out.  27 Points, 8 Rebounds and 3 Blocks.

Eric Gordon scores 25 Points to remind all his fantasy haters that he is going to finish out the season strong.

Drew Gooden plays 35+ Minutes, Ersan Ilysova plays 26+ Minutes.  Coach Skiles is not one to trust.

Brandon Knight is heating up with two games in a row of 20+ Points.  It is  his time to run the show with the season coming to an end.

DeMarcus Cousins struggles for the 2nd straight game going 3/14 from the field.  That is now 6/26 in the pass two games.

Serge Ibaka goes back to 24 Minutes, and blocks 7 shots.

  1. Hello again Munt. My lineup is full for Sunday and I want to feel like I made the right choices for the last day of fantasy by asking your opinion.

    I have one roster spot availiable and I could put Brandan Wright or Javale Mcgee in. Normally I would pick Wright, but he’s going to be up against the Lakers twin towers Sunday. Do you think I should go with Mcgee or stick with Wright?

  2. Brandan Wright could take Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum to school with his speed.

    With that being said, if it all came down to one game. I would go with the player flying up the charts.

    And that player is Brandan Wright.

    Let me know how it turns out.
