Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 12/16
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
December 16, 2015
We’ve got a very busy night of NBA action ahead of us, so this makes a great time to check out the fantasy basketball waiver wire and see which guys are trending out there. Let’s visit the numbers and see who might make a good pickup in your seasonal or daily fantasy league.
Raymond Felton, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks: Felton has been pretty good lately, and it’s led to a lot of fantasy adds. He’s coming off 17 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals against the Suns.
That makes five straight double-digit scoring outings for Felton, who has a double-double and a triple-double mixed in there as well. He’s a nice pickup on the low end for the Pacers game tonight.

Jon Leuer, PF/C, Phoenix Suns: Leuer also has a nice double-digit points streak going; his stands at eight games. There are two double-doubles mixed in there, with a couple of eight-rebound outings as well.
Leuer is coming off 15 points, 13 rebounds, three assists and a steal against the Mavericks. He and the Suns will likely be putting up lots of points in order to keep up with the Warriors tonight.
Jeff Green, SG/SF, Memphis Grizzlies: The Grizzlies have been putting Green out on the court for extended periods over the past couple of games; he’s got at least 40 minutes in his last pair of outings.
In that frame, Green has a total of 41 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, a steal and two blocks. He’ll be going into Chicago tonight and is definitely fantasy relevant.
Gary Neal, PG/SG, Washington Wizards: With the Wizards banged up due to injury right now, Neal should be getting serious minutes. He had 31 in his last outing, leading the team with 24 points, two rebounds and a steal.
Neal has five double-digit scoring outings in his last seven games, and seems to be a pretty solid lower-end source of points. He’ll be in San Antonio tonight.
Gerald Green, SG/SF, Miami Heat: The more the Heat want to rest Dwyane Wade, the better it is for Green. He posted 20 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal off the bench in Atlanta, recording 31 minutes in the process.
Green has double-digit points in his last four straight outings and is a pretty good filler for the aging Wade when he’s lagging. The Heat will be in Brooklyn tonight.
