In Bruno Boys expanding coverage into fantasy sports, the Court Scene will be breaking down the fantasy basketball season on a weekly basis to advise you on who to add on your fantasy roster in both the frontcourt and backcourt. There are lots of players to consider but only a few who are really worth the effort to change your rotation and be fantasy worthy.
Finding quality big men and clutch guards in the waiver wire is like watching sand slip down an hourglass, at some point they just run out. It’s important to keep informed on not only which players are available on the long run, but also in the short run in certain scenarios as injuries and starting lineups shift all the time. So be sure to come here every week, whether you’re using this article to fill out your DraftKings daily fantasy rosters or looking for that next gem to help you in your season-long league for the present and future.
Here’s this week’s group of forwards and centers worth adding to your fantasy basketball team.
Justise Winslow, SF/SG, Miami Heat
Coming out of college, Winslow was seen as a big hustle player who could do much more than score. In fact, his scoring is more of an afterthought, but most felt that he had time to develop his offense. In the last two weeks, Winslow has shown his proficiency getting rebounds, and he’s been grabbing six to nine per night since January 20, now that he’s getting 33-40 minutes per game, which is about 10 more minutes per game than he was getting before the new year. He’s still young, and at age 19 he’s only committing a few turnovers per game, so potential owners have to consider that when adding him to their team. Winslow has a lot of upside, and he’s finally getting starter minutes, so look for him to appear on more fantasy rosters as the weeks go by.
Up ahead: The Heat still have three games left in the schedule including the Mavericks tonight, then the Hornets on Friday and Clippers on Sunday. Next week, is a light week, three games starting with the Spurs on Feb. 9, and then gets two days full rest before a back-to-back with the Hawks and Wizards on the weekend.
