Los Angeles Clipprs
|It was confirmed on Tuesday that
Chauncey Billups is out for the season with a torn left Achilles'
tendon. Randy Foye will take over at shooting guard.
|Jeremy Lin PG
New York Knicks
|It's probably too late, as
'Linsanity' has already started, but he's only owned in 55% of Y!
leagues at the time this was written. So give the waiver wire a shot,
he's poised to excel in Coach Mike D'Antoni's system as a pure
pick-and-roll point guard.
|Greivis Vasquez PG/SG
New Orleans Hornets
|Greivis Vasquez is running the
point while Jarrett Jack (knee) is out. He has been successful, logging
double-digit scoring efforts in each of his last six games. He is also
averaging 7.8 assists his last six. If things keep clipping along at
this pace, Vasquez could move to SG when Jack returns.
|Gordon Hayward SG/SF
|Along with Jeremy Lin, Gordon
Hayward is also receiving a lot of attention. He is owned in just 31%
of Y! leagues. In his last six games he is averaging 14.5 points and is
contributing moderately in all statistical cateogories.
|Linas Kleiza SF
|Linas Kleiza has been
contributing mightily when given the minutes (in the absence of Andrea
Bargnani). In his last three games he is averaging 20.7 points and is 9
for 16 beyond the arc. He doesn't offer much in other cateogories but
his scoring pace is definitely useful in 12-team leagues. He's owned in
just 4% of Y! leagues and could help many teams.
