Workin the Wire
Here are the top 5 names to add this week...not named Millsap or Collison.
Ty Lawson, Nuggets-Word out of Denver is Billups is playing with a sprained ankle. Could the return of Melo mean a small pre-All Star break for Mr Big Shot? If so, it would be wise to snag Lawson, who has played at Rookie of the Year level when given the opportunity.
Tony Allen, Celtics-As the Celts hold their breath with the pending Pierce MRI news, Pierce owners should run to add Allen to their squads. Allen can score, defend and shoot at solid percentages. A must stash if Paul's injury is deemed serious.
Beno Udrih, Kings-While he disappointed in his start Monday agst Denver, Udrih may be in for some run with Tyreke Evans battling some injuries. Beno shoots well from the outside and can rack up some assists, but dont expect much.
Jason Williams, Magic-White chocalate may not be starting every night, but given the state of the Magic backcourt, especially the ever-changing health of Jameer Nelson, Williams may be in line for some major minutes if Nelson continues to be bothered by a bad knee. J-Will can hit the 3 and add some assists. Keep an eye on Nelsons health before adding him however.
Rudy Fernandez, Blazers-If you need 3s, this is your guy. Yes Roy is out, however Fernandez does his damage in bunches. In limited playing time he nails 3s, grabs steals and scores around 12 pts a game. If you need someone for the end of your bench and can stash him, do so.
