Thanks to a weak Sunday afternoon schedule (just two games competing against the NFL schedule), there are no teams that play on both Saturday and Sunday this week. That means no getting lucky on double-duty weekend warriors.
That being the case, we’ll focus on the guys who are playing on Sunday, so you can see who may be available for that last-day run at winning your week.
With two games going on, there are four teams active on Sunday – the Suns, Knicks, Magic and Lakers.
So from those teams—who is available, who can help, and if so, in what categories?
I mentioned Markieff Morris in my Deep League Diggers article from earlier this week, so he’s an obvious choice if he’s still available in your league. He’s playing more and scoring more – over 11 points per game over his last four games with a field goal percentage over 50 percent, and a three-pointer per game.
If you need three-pointers, there’s no one better to look for than Steve Novak, if he’s available in your league—a real possibility because he doesn’t do much else. But man, if you need three’s, Novak is your man. He’s hit 13 in his past four games
Jermaine O’Neal isn’t even close to the player he used to be, but if you need blocks, he still knows how to throw a party. O’Neal has two blocks in each of his past five games. He won’t give you much else, but if you’re a few blocks short, check to see if O’Neal is still available.
So we’ve given you points, three’s, field goal percentage and blocks. If you need more help than that, you’re not going to win your week.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
