With fantasy basketball in its final push to the playoffs, key decisions on which hot waiver wire players can help lead your team to the playoffs are critical. One wrong drop or one wrong pick up can be the difference of making or not making the playoffs. Dropping an injuried or slumping player and picking up the right player is so much more important now then the beginning of the season. Today we will examine seven key players that can help your team get to the promise land.
Kent Bazemore – Kent has simply been a solid player since Lakers acquired him at the trading deadline. Furthmore, Mike D. Loves and trusts him, as well as, his style fits like a glove in Mike D. system. Over last three games since trade, he is averaging 18 PPG, 3 APG, 2 RPG, 2 SPG, and 1.5 threes a game while playing 37 minutes a game. Kent seems to be going from Clark Kent in Golden State to Superman in LA.
Brian Roberts – Brian may or may not still be on waiver wire? If he is grab him at once. With Jrue still injuried and no time table for his return Brian is locked in as started possibly for rest of season. Over last seven games he is averaging 13 PPG, 5 APG, 2.5 RPG, 1 SPG, and 1.5 threes a game. If your lucky enough to get him, expect Brian to help give you that extra push you need to make it to playoffs.

Kyle Singler – Kyle really taking advantage of becoming a starter. Over last seven games he is averaging 14 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2 APG, and 1.5 SPG, while playing over 30 minutes a game. With all the minutes he is getting, I expect his numbers to climb in the finally weeks of your push to the playoffs. Grabbing Kyle will help your team smile.
Will Bynum – Will has been taking minutes from Jennings the last few games, and now Jennings went down with injury. Will played 31 minutes on Wednesday night putting up a pretty nice stat sheet coming off the bench. He scored 18 points, 9 assists, 1 rebound. The combination of Will taking away playing time from Jennings, plus his potential injury make Will a must add. Your team won’t chill with Will instead your team will be a thrill with Will.
Patty Mills – Patty has been a blessing for the Spurs. With Parker aging and fighting all kinds of injuries Patty has been playing out of his mind. This is so important for an aging Spurs team trying to get one more run at a potential title. Coach Pops can rest Parker as long as needed, knowing he has Patty. Over last seven games he is averaging 15 PPG, 4 RPG, 2 APG, 1.5 SPG, and 1.5 threes a game. Mills is no Patty cake. Go grab him at once.
Tony Wroten – When Tony gets playing time he produces. Since the big dump in Philadelphia, Tony is averaging 18 PPG, 4 RPG, 2,5 APG, 1 SPG, and 1 BPG over last three games. Expect his numbers to climb as his minutes continue to rise. Like Tony the Tiger would say, this Tony is playing “GRAAAAAAAT”!
Elton Brand – Elton is turning back father time. With the Hawks getting killed with injuries Elton has stepped in and is playing like a kid fresh out of college trying to eestablish himself. Over last six games, he is averaging 10 PPG, 9 RPG, 2 APG, 2 BPG, and 1 SPG while averaging an amazing 35 minutes a game. While father time has turned back the clock, go take your hand and grab you some Brand.
