WOW – It’s Friday and there’s a crap ton of good games on tonight. I think you can target Chicago and Minnesota if you’re looking to stack lineups on teams without some of its best players. Below I have some guys that should save you some cash so you can go after more high end talent.
G – AARON BROOKS
With Derrick Rose, Krik Hinrich and Pau Gasol out, that leaves the PG position open for Brooks and some scoring ops.
G – MO WILLIAMS
He’s likely going to only be in the 30 min/night range, but with the Wolves crushed by injuries – he’s one of the teams best players.
G – TONY WROTEN
His price has come way down, but the coach has recently said he’d like him and MCW on the court more together. Even off the bench, he has upside – just a bit risky. Don’t overpay. Update: TONY IS STARTING
G – NICK YOUNG
SWAGGY P!!!!!! The Lakers have been red-hot with this guy, and if he’s really cheap – he’s not a horrible play. I’d like him more if he started, or got 30+ minuets, but he’s good.
G – BRADLEY BEAL
If he’s cheap … might be worth the risk. Looks like he’s coming off the bench still, but filled up for 21 points last game in only 26 mins.
F – TAJ GIBSON
With Pau Gasol and others out for the Bulls, Gibson is a decent play, given that you don’t pay too much.
F – COREY BREWER
A reader was wise to point out Brewer last night, and luckily I took his advice because he did well. With Kevin Martin now out, he’s again viable as the Timberwolves will need his scoring.
