Fantasy Basketball 2015-16: Waiver Wire Update 3/30
Fantasy Basketball Daily Leagues: Sleeper Picks and Advice for Tonight's Matchups
March 30, 2016
We’ve got a pretty busy slate of games ahead of us in the NBA tonight, which means we’ll also have a busy day of activity in seasonal and daily fantasy basketball leagues.
That said, let’s check out some of the trending guys on the waiver wire and see if anyone would be a good fit for your roster.
J.J. Barea, PG/SG, Dallas Mavericks: Let’s start out in the Big D today and visit with Barea. He is trending on the waiver wire following an 18-point performance in Denver that yielded 11 assists, two steals and a rebound.
The Mavs are flailing, but Barea is hot, tossing up double-digit points in six of his last seven games. He will be at home against the woeful Knicks tonight and could be a nice play.

Dwight Powell, PF, Dallas Mavericks: Before we leave Dallas (and that great Knicks matchup), let’s check out Powell. He put up 16 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in Denver.
Powell now has 27 points and 13 rebounds in his last two outings combined. If Powell continues to get starter minutes--which he should--he’s got a nice ceiling for such a low-level player.
Seth Curry, PG, Sacramento Kings: No, he’s not that S. Curry, but Seth Curry has some decent appeal in deeper leagues. He managed 21 points, four rebounds, two steals and an assist in Portland in his last outing.
Curry has double-digit points in each of his three games since returning to the court, and has bagged four rebounds in two of those. He’s a nice source of low-end 3-pointers and will likely see significant minutes.
Toney Douglas, PG/SG, New Orleans Pelicans: Douglas is still available in just under 80 percent of the leagues out there, and is providing some nice numbers for those owners adventurous enough to give him a try.
He put up 16 points with five rebounds and two assists in his last outing, and has scored in double-digits in each of his last eight games. He’ll be in San Antonio tonight.
Norman Powell, SG, Toronto Raptors: Now for a really deep-league play. Powell is available in just about every league out there, and is coming off 18 points, four rebounds and two blocks against the Thunder.
Powell has double-digit points in each of his last three outings, with nine 3-pointers combined in those. He will be at home against the Hawks tonight and could get some good minutes if the Raptors rest some guys.
