Wednesday's pickups of the day are listed below. If Avery Bradley is still somehow available in your league, pick him up. 


C.J. Miles Pacers – CJM is rolling right now. Despite a sore ankle, he hit 10-of-16 shots, 8-of-9 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for a career-high 32 points, three boards, three assists and a steal on Tuesday, helping the Pacers to a franchise record 19 3-pointers made. Miles has been killing it lately, scoring between 19 and 32 in his last four games and knocking down 20 3-pointers during that stretch.


Matt Barnes Grizzlies - Barnes racked up a nice line of 14 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals on 5-of-14 shooting on Tuesday, and also knocked down three 3-pointers. Zach Randolph should be nearing a return, but Barnes has quietly scored in double figures in three straight games (all without Z-Bo). Once Z-Bo is back in action, Barnes will take a hit, but he’s playing well enough right now that he might be a sneaky pick up.


Mario Chalmers Grizzlies - Chalmers came off the bench and hit 4-of-7 shots for 14 points, two assists and five steals in 22 minutes on Tuesday. Super Mario is actually trying to live up to his nickname since being traded to the Grizzlies, and is averaging 15 points, 2.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 3-pointers in 20 minutes per game over his last five. If you need a guard and those numbers are appealing, think about grabbing him in deeper leagues.


Ed Davis Blazers - Davis hit 5-of-8 shots in 35 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, finishing with 12 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. He struggled on Sunday, but was back at it last night. He's double-doubled in two of his last three games and is someone you should trust for as long as Meyers Leonard is out with his shoulder injury.
