Kelly Olynyk- He’s even more available (49%) than James Johnson and just had a monster game vs. the Nuggets, scoring 30 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and four blocks. Like I said with Johnson, Whiteside’s target date is unclear.
Caris LeVert- He has been a stud in March and the Nets have three more games this week. Probably long gone in competitive leagues.
Andrew Harrison- You might be surprised to see him ranked higher than Quinn Cook on this list, but the Grizzlies have three more games this week and the Grizzlies are being really shady with Tyreke Evans. Harrison has had some monster games without Evans and was productive on Monday with 19 points and eight assists in 31 minutes.
Michael Beasley- Another strong game for Beasley and he’s approaching must-own status again.
Cameron Payne- I’d have Cook ranked higher if Curry wasn’t expected back Friday. Payne had a rough game on Monday, but the Bulls play three more times this week and Kris Dunn (toe) suffered a setback.
Quinn Cook- Stephen Curry could be back for Friday’s game, but if not, fire up Cook in all fantasy leagues. He’s averaging 24.3 points, 4.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 4.0 triples in his last three starts.
Wilson Chandler- Not sure where he was earlier this season, but the dude is rolling right now and just dropped 26 points against the Heat. Paul Millsap’s return was supposed to slow him down but it hasn’t happened yet.
Wayne Ellington- You’d be hard-pressed to find a better 3-point specialist on your waiver wire. He had six triples on Monday and 23 combined triples over his last six games.
Reggie Bullock- He’s still the most reliable wing in Detroit by a mile with solid contributions in points and triples.
Skal Labissiere- His role will only grow from here, assuming he stays healthy. Solid all-around upside.
Patty Mills- He’s still starting and the Spurs play three more times this week, so he’ll be a decent source of triples and dimes.
Bam Adebayo- He’ll continue to provide low-end big man stats until Whiteside returns, but make sure Johnson and Olynyk aren’t on your wire first.
Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell- It sounds like Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) will be fine, but if not, Bell and Looney will have some streaming appeal on Friday. I’m a huge Bell fan, but he hasn’t been great since returning from his ankle injury, while Looney has been very impressive.
Frank Ntilikina- Two solid games in a row, but can’t trust him outside of dimes and steals yet.
Antonio Blakeney- He’s firmly in Chicago’s plans going forward and is worth monitoring in deeper leagues. One more injury away from big minutes.
