Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 12/2
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
December 2, 2015
We’ve got a fairly busy evening of NBA action coming up, which makes today a nice opportunity to check out some of the hot waiver wire adds in the world of fantasy basketball. We’ve got some interesting plays for daily and seasonal leagues for you this morning, so let’s take a closer look at the numbers.
Thabo Sefolosha, SG/SF, Atlanta Hawks: Even though Sefolosha had no points in his last appearance, his defensive efforts and complementary role helped his team get the win. He’d finish with eight rebounds, six assists and four steals against the Thunder.
Sefolosha should be seeing a minutes-load in the mid-20s to mid-30s, which makes him an intriguing add for finesse stats in most leagues. He’ll get Toronto at home tonight.

Arron Afflalo, SG/SF, New York Knicks: The Knicks have dropped four games in a row, but at least they’re getting better guard play these days. Afflalo dropped 31 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal against the Rockets, giving him six double-digit outings in his last seven games.
Afflalo gets a nice matchup today against the winless 76ers at the Garden. He should be able to put up a nice line.
Ian Mahinmi, C, Indiana Pacers: Mahinmi hit some key free throws against the Lakers, helping to secure the Pacers’ fifth straight win. He’d finish with eight points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
Mahinmi has been good for low-end stat-sheet-filling efforts lately, and he’s a nice source of a couple steals and blocks per game usually. He’ll be in L.A. again tonight against the Clippers.
Jerryd Bayless, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks: As long as Bayless is getting these nice minutes-loads, he’s a relevant fantasy play. He put up seven points, a rebound, four assists and a steal in his last outing, but before that had double-digit points in four straight games.
Bayless is worth owning as a low-end source of guard numbers, even with Michael Carter-Williams looming. He’ll be in San Antonio tonight.
Omri Casspi, SF, Sacramento Kings: Let’s finish things up with Casspi, even though he doesn’t play until tomorrow night. He’s got double-digit points in six of the last seven games, with at least five rebounds in all of those.
Casspi is usually good for a few assists and a steal or two each game, which makes him a nice big man to have. He’ll be at home against the Celtics tomorrow.
