With the recent influx of injuries (Manu and Z-Bo to name a couple), The Fantasy Dudes have provided some options to check out off you waiver wire as replacements:
Norris Cole, PG, Miami Heat: The 28th pick in the draft has come out of nowhere. He's averaging 23 mins a game, almost 12 points (@50% shooting), and is a great source of 3's as well as assists. Norris should certainly be considered in deeper leagues.
Brandon Rush, SG, Golden State Warriors: Despite coming off the bench, Brandon has dropped 7 3's at 50% shooting, while also averaged a steal and a block per game. He's averaging almost 30 mins a game, hence his 10 point average.
MarShon Brooks, SG, New Jersey Nets: The rookie has shot right out of the blocks, averaging close to 14 points per game. Expect inconsistencies, however it helps when he has Deron passing him the ball.
Sam Young, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies: Z-Bo is out for an extended period of time. Over his past 2 games he has impressed off the bench. He won't start, but he'll see increased production.
Richard Jefferson, SF, San Antonio Spurs: Will likely need to help out with the scoring now that Manu is out for an extended period. He may be getting on, however he's still a performer from a fantasy perspective.
DJ White, PF, Charlottle Bobcats: Numbers won't blow you away, however he has been reasonably efficient. In his 5 starts this season, he has averaged 11 pts, 5 rebs and a blk per game.
Brandon Bass, PF, Boston Celtics: The key beneficiary of the Jeff Green injury. Getting plenty of mins, and should anything happen to KG, he'd be in line for a lot of work.
Al Harrington, PF/C, Denver Nuggets: With no K-Mart around, Al has stepped up big time. 15.7 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.3 3's a game. If he is available, add him now!
Greg Stiemsma, C, Boston Celtics: We all know too well about Jermaine O'Neal, the guy just can't stay healthy. Enter Greg Stiemsma, who has accumulated 12 blocks over his past 4 games, including a 13 point, 7 reb, 2 block performance in his most recent start.
Amir Johnson, PF/C, Toronto Raptors: It surprises me that Amir is still available in a lot of leagues. He's not flashy, but he averages a steal and 1.6 blocks per game, to go along with 6.5 rebounds and decent percentages.
Mehmet Okur, C, New Jersey Nets: Lopez is out, Okur is in... good source of 3's for a big man.
