Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 1/28
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
January 28, 2016
We’ve got a pretty good NBA lineup coming this evening, which means there will be plenty going on in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues out there. On that note, let’s check out some of the notable waiver wire adds and see if anyone’s right for your team.
Ian Mahinmi, C, Indiana Pacers: Mahinmi is near the top of the waiver wire charts the past couple of days after a strong performance against the Clippers. He posted 12 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals in that one.
Mahinmi returned from an ankle injury and looks like he’s fully healthy now. If you need a big man for tonight against Atlanta and beyond, he’s your guy on the low end.

Derrick Williams, SF/PF, New York Knicks: Williams has been playing out of his mind over the past couple of games, even though New York has lost three straight. He put up 19 points, 10 boards, four assists and a steal against the Thunder in another impressive outing.
Williams had 19 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and one steal in Charlotte earlier this week, and goes into Toronto tonight on a nice run. He’s a stellar low-end forward add right now.
Willie Cauley-Stein, PF/C, Sacramento Kings: Cauley-Stein posted a nice line in Portland on Tuesday, with 12 points, seven rebounds, four blocks, an assist and a steal in 30 minutes of action.
Cauley-Stein has snagged double-digit points or rebounds in four of his last five, missing the fifth by one (he had a 9/9 line against Charlotte). He’ll be in New Orleans tonight and if he keeps getting minutes he’ll make a great add.
Toney Douglas, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans: Speaking of the Pelicans, they’ve got a guy to check out on Douglas. He had 18 points, three rebounds, six assists, a steal and a block against the Rockets in his last appearance.
That makes two straight double-digit scoring outings for Douglas, who just came back a few games ago. He should be getting some major minutes moving forward, and is a realistic deep-league option for tonight against the Kings.
Justise Winslow, SF/PF, Miami Heat: Winslow posted a nice game in Brooklyn, with 13 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals. He also played 37 minutes, which is worth noting.
Winslow has been getting some heavy minutes-loads over the last several games, and he should continue to provide fresh legs for Miami going forward. He plays tomorrow in Milwaukee.
