Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: Best Microphones March 23

Are you still alive in your fantasy basketball league? If you’re reading this article, I’m guessing you probably are. If so, you’ll need to stay on top of your league’s waiver feed in case of an emergency, or if you need a little boost to get past your opponent in the playoffs this week. Here are the best low-skilled, high-skilled players you can plug and play

Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire: Best Microphones March 23

Tre Mann – Oklahoma City – PG/SG – 26% registered

10.2 ppg, 2.8 rpg, 1.5 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.2 bpg, 1.6 3PT/G, 39.0% FG, 77.3% FT, 1.1 tpg

If Tre Mann is available in your league (unfortunately he’s on the team I’m playing against this week), go get him. For the past two weeks, the rookie guard has been one of the top 50 producing fantasy players and is still available in about three-quarters of the leagues. In his last three games, he posted stunning averages: 24.3 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 1.7 apg and hit 15 threes. He has two games left this week to help you.

Aleksej Pokusevski – Oklahoma City – SF/PF – 34% registered

7.1 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 1.6 apg, 0.6 spg, 0.6 bpg, 0.8 3PT/G, 40.5% FG, 68.3% FT, 1.3 tpg

We stick with the Thunder for our second suggestion, Aleksej Pokusevski. He’s also been on fire lately, posting double-digit efforts in nine of his last 10 games. That includes 19 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal in his last game, and two double-double efforts during that game span. Again, catch it while it’s hot.

Brandon Williams – Portland – PG – 35%

14.6 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 2.6 apg, 0.9 spg, 0.4 bpg, 1.3 3PT/G, 41.2% FG, 67.6% FT, 2.2 tpg

Undrafted rookie Brandon Williams continues to make the most of his Portland opportunity, putting big numbers on the board. His resume includes five games with 20+ points in his last nine, five games with five plus rebounds, one game with five and six assists, and games with three and four steals. With Damian Lillard on the shelf for the rest of the season, Williams will continue to have chances. And he has three games left to play this week.

Jose Alvarado – New Orleans – PG – ten%

5.6 ppg, 1.8 rpg, 2.6 apg, 1.3 spg, 0.1 bpg, 0.6 3PT/G, 42.4% FG, 71.8% FT, 0.7 tpg

You don’t go looking for rookie point guard Jose Alvardo for his scoring ability. You pick him up for his thieving skills. He’s caught 22 steals in his last 10 games, including one game with six, one game with four and three games with three steals. He could rob you (pun intended) of that category and propel you further into the playoffs. In addition, he has three games left this week.

Precious Achiuwa – Toronto – SF/PF/C – 32%

8.8 ppg, 6.9 rpg, 1.1 apg, 0.5 spg, 0.5 bpg, 0.6 3PT/G, 43.9% FG, 58.7% FT, 1.2 tpg

Precious Achiuwa’s tear finally came to an end in the final game, as he only scored six points. Prior to that, he had topped double digits in seven consecutive games, including 21 two games ago. Even if his score doesn’t heat up again, he might be worth picking up on for his rebounding totals. In addition, eligibility for three positions is always positive.

Torrey Craig – Phoenix – SG/SF/PF – 16% registered

6.6 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 1.2 apg, 0.8 spg, 0.8 bpg, 0.9 3PT/G, 45.0% FG, 70.6% FT, 1.2 tpg

Although their record doesn’t show it, the Suns have been pretty stoned lately. And Torrey Craig took the place of the missing teammates. He’s gone 13-13 in two games recently, one of them a 21-point, 14-rebound effort, and is grabbing plenty of rebounds and steals, while dishing out assists to his teammates. And again, that’s another guy who has three more games scheduled for this week.
