Fantasy Basketball 2014-15: Waiver Wire Update 3/30
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 30, 2015
We’ve got a pretty good slate of NBA games coming up today, which makes this a great time to check out some of the notable waiver wire trends happening out there in the world of fantasy basketball. Whether you’re in a daily or seasonal league, you’ll want to be aware of these guys. Here’s a closer look at the stats.
Dennis Schroder, PG, Atlanta Hawks: One of the hottest pickups off the wire recently has been Schroder. He’s got two straight double-doubles to his credit, and is coming off a 17-point, 11-assist, four-rebound game in Charlotte.
Schroder has been great in the starting lineup for the Hawks, and has collected five straight double-digit scoring performances. With Jeff Teague banged up, Schroder is a gotta-have guy in fantasy.

Gerald Henderson, SG/SF, Charlotte Hornets: While we’re here, let’s check out the other side of that Hornets-Hawks matchup from this weekend. Henderson put up 20 points, five rebounds and four assists in that one, giving him at least 20 points in two of his last three.
Henderson has a nice streak of seven straight double-digit scoring performances to his credit, and even put up a double-double against Washington last week. He’ll get some extra court time in the near future as the Hornets heal up.
Chase Budinger, SG/SF, Minnesota Timberwolves: Budinger had a bit of a down game last night against New Orleans, posting 10 points and five rebounds on 3-of-9 shooting. It was a far cry from his 45 points over the previous two games.
Budinger is still a worthy fantasy pickup if you’re at that level. The T-Wolves are pretty awful, but they’ve got a decent-looking schedule down the stretch.
Marvin Williams, SF/PF, Charlotte Hornets: Williams had a breakout game against the Hawks this weekend, posting 17 points, five rebounds and three assists with two steals for good measure.
Williams has just two double-digit scoring performances in his last seven games, but with the injury situation in Charlotte considered, there are much worse places to be than beside him. He should see plenty of minutes as things come to a close.
Jordan Hill, PF/C, Los Angeles Lakers: Let’s close things out today on Hill, as he came back into the fantasy conversation--and the Lakers lineup--with a 22-point, 16-rebound effort in just 27 minutes against the Nets yesterday.
Hill is a really risky proposition down the stretch, given the fact that he may or may not play on a game-to-game basis. Still, you can’t ignore those kinds of numbers in daily leagues, so he’s worth a gamble if you can get it right.
