Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 12/9
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
December 9, 2015
We’ve got a busy slate of NBA action ahead of us this evening with 10 games on the schedule, so that makes this morning a great time to check out some of the notable waiver wire additions out there in the world of fantasy basketball. Here’s a closer look at the stats and trends right now.
Mirza Teletovic, SF/PF, Phoenix Suns: Teletovic is trending as one of the hotter waiver wire adds right now, thanks to a strong showing in Chicago. He put up 31 minutes of action in that one, posting four 3-pointers, 20 points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
That gives Teletovic six double-digit scoring outings in his last seven games, so he’s definitely worth kicking the tires on in deeper formats as long as Tyson Chandler is banged up. He’ll get Orlando at home tonight.

Terrence Ross, SG/SF, Toronto Raptors: The jury’s still out on Ross, but he gained a lot of fantasy trust against the Lakers. He put up 39 minutes of action in that one, logging four 3-pointers, 22 points, six rebounds and a pair of steals.
Ross still needs to prove his consistency against better competition, but this is a step in the right direction. He’ll be getting minutes as long as DaMarre Carroll is out of commission, starting tonight against the Spurs.
O.J. Mayo, PG/SG, Milwaukee Bucks: Mayo flashed a bit of potential this week against Portland, putting up three 3-pointers, 15 points, a rebound, two assists and three steals in his 36 minutes.
Mayo has been putting in quite a lot of minutes recently, and that should continue as long as the Bucks’ backcourt is banged up. He’s a nice lower-end add right now heading into the Clippers game tonight.
Alex Len, C, Phoenix Suns: Len is another trendy fantasy add right now who is benefiting from Chandler being out. He’s coming off a 15-point, 6-rebound, 2-assist game in Chicago, with a steal and a block to round out his 22 minutes.
Len is pretty good at bagging defensive stats, and will even throw a double-double out there every so often. He’ll get the Magic at home tonight.
Gary Neal, PG/SG, Washington Wizards: Neal works well within the Wizards’ small lineups, as evidenced by his performance in Miami this week. He put up three 3-pointers, 21 points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals.
That makes three double-digit scoring games in a row for Neal, who seems to be heating up. We’ll see if he can keep it going tonight at home against the Rockets.
