Fantasy Basketball 2014-15: Sleeper Picks 4/3/15
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
April 3, 2015
We’re heading into a pretty heavy basketball schedule tonight in the NBA, so what better time is there than now to take a look at some of the sleeper and waiver wire pickups available out there in the world of fantasy basketball? Here’s a closer look at some of the notable players you should focus on in seasonal or daily leagues.
Ryan Anderson, PF/C, New Orleans Pelicans: After a long absence due to a knee injury, Anderson was finally back on the court Wednesday. He put up two 3-pointers, 17 points, three rebounds and an assist in his return to action.
Anderson should see some heavier minutes down the stretch as the Pelicans battle for that last playoff slot. He doesn’t play until tomorrow in Sacramento, though.

Anthony Morrow, SG/SF, Oklahoma City Thunder: Morrow came from out of nowhere on Wednesday, nailing six 3-pointers en route to 32 points, four rebounds and a steal against Dallas.
Morrow’s been showing flashes recently, and it was just a matter of time before he logged a huge game like this. In his last eight games, he has seven double-digit scoring performances and three games with at least 20 points. He’ll be in Memphis tonight.
Marvin Williams, SF/PF, Charlotte Hornets: Williams has been a pretty hot pickup recently, thanks to his last few games. He’s coming off an 18-point, six-rebound effort against Detroit that also yielded a steal, a rebound and a block.
Williams has three straight double-digit scoring outings to his credit, and he’s usually good for a handful of rebounds each game as well. If that fits your needs, pick him up before he goes to Indianapolis tonight.
Jordan Clarkson, PG, Los Angeles Lakers: Clarkson has been tearing it up on the court recently, and he’s getting picked up in a lot of leagues because of his recent play. He put up his second straight double-double against the Pelicans in his last outing, with 18 points, 10 assists and seven rebounds.
Clarkson has at least 14 points in six straight games, hitting the 18-point mark in five of those. He needs to be owned by everyone who’s at that level.
Omri Casspi, SF, Sacramento Kings: We’ve talked about Casspi a couple of times in this space, and here he is again. He put up 18 points, seven rebounds, four assists and three steals in his last outing in Houston.
Casspi has put up double-digit points in three of his last four and five of his last seven games. He’s usually good for a spattering of rebounds and assists each game as well.
