2015 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire Week 23


Week 23 is most likely the week of the finals in your fantasy basketball league, and hopefully you’ve made it.

If you haven’t been using this strategy just yet, now is the time to take full advantage of the waiver wire in your league. If you have a limited number of adds per week it’s a good idea to use all of them. Make sure your getting as many games played in as you can.

Also, if you have any adds for week 22 remaining don’t waste them, use them on Sunday for someone that plays on Monday if you can.

Without further ado here are the players to add for your championship matchup

Dennis Schroeder

Schroeder has taken advantage of the 28 minutes per game he has averaged over the past two weeks. In that span he is averaging 16.3 points, three rebounds, 5.3 assists, and 1.3 threes.

Schroeder has been great, and to make his outlook even better, it would appear the Hawks could be willing to rest Jeff Teague as they plan for the playoffs. Teague has been banged up, and even suffered an ankle injury on Wednesday night. Schroeder could be in line for a start.

Also, the Hawks play back-to-back games on Monday and Tuesday which could increase the likelihood that Teague gets some rest.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

KCP has been on fire the past week, and has 20 point games in four of his past five games. Also, he’s been averaging 35 minutes over the past two weeks.

KCP has run away with the starting shooting guard role in his sophomore year, and though he has had some cold streaks, it shouldn’t put owners off.

The Pistons don’t have anything to play for so the team should finish the season letting their young talent takeover.

Zach Lavine

The T’wolves are in tank mode, and could choose to shutdown Ricky Rubio for the rest of the season. If Rubio continues to ride the pine Zach Lavine should continue the great run he has been on over the past two weeks.

Since Rubio has gone down, Lavine has average 16 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists, and two threes per game. Lavine will continue to get free reign as long as he is in the starting lineup. Even if Rubio returns Lavine has carved out a serviceable role.

Lavine’s only caveat is the T’wolves only play three games, and have Saturday and Sunday off. If your league has an add limit and you haven’t used them all, add Lavine then drop him Friday night for someone else.

Jason Terry

Patrick Beverly is most likely out for the regular season which forces Terry into the starting lineup.

Terry is clearly past his prime, and the Rockets backcourt is dominated by James Harden, but Terry can at least offer some threes.

Strategically speaking, there are only three games on Tuesday (4/2), and seven games on Sunday (4/5), if you are looking to take advantage of the waiver wire you could add Terry for these games to get a leg up.

Chase Budinger

Like Zach Lavine, Budinger is helped by the T’wolves potentially resting their starters. Kevin Martin has dealt with injuries his entire career, and most recently has dealt with a hamstring injury.

Budinger can score when given minutes, and has scored double-digits over the past seven of eight games.

As long as Martin sits Budinger is an option, but Martin has a tendency to be game-time decision which puts his value up in the air.

Harrison Barnes & Andre Igoudala

Barnes and Igoudala may be owned in your league, but if your in a competitive league they should be on the waiver wire. However, in week 23 these two Warriors offer an interesting scenario for fantasy owners. As I mentioned with Jason Terry, owners should be trying to maximize however many adds they have available per week in their league.

On Tuesday, March 31 there are only four games being played, on April 2 there are only three games, and on April 5 there are seven. The Warriors play each of those days.

It’s likely that every other day during the week you are starting a full roster except those three days. If Barnes and Igoudala are available then you are giving yourself the opportunity for six more games played, depending if you have a games played limit, which should entice owners.

If perhaps mesothelioma is really a rogue virus-like infection, so there is the chance for developing a vaccine in addition to offering vaccination for asbestos uncovered people who are really at high risk connected with developing future asbestos linked malignancies. Thanks for discussing your ideas about this important ailment.

  4. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
