It’s several more weeks before fantasy basketball playoffs begin, but now is the time to start making that push for the postseason. Below are some waiver wire suggestions to help you get some leverage.
Nate Robinson, PG/SG, Chicago Bulls (28% owned in Yahoo! leagues)
Robinson had a solid four-game stretch in the last week, averaging 20.0 points on 56.9 percent shooting from the floor (14.5 FGA) and 100.0 percent from the free throw line (1.5 FTA), 2.0 three-pointers, 3.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.8 steals in 25 minutes of play. Until Derrick Rose finally returns to play, Robinson should be good for similar type stretches. However, current streakiness aside, the Bulls guard had a solid month of January going on (16 games) — 12.3 points, 48.1 FG% (10.0 FGA), 85.0 FT% (1.3 FTA), 1.6 treys, 2.6 boards, 3.6 dimes and 1.3 steals in 22 minutes. Feel good picking him up in every type of league.
Kosta Koufos, PF/C, Denver Nuggets (26%)
Koufos would be a solid add in standard leagues if you need some big man stats. He is coming off a solid month of January (15 games), where he basically duplicated what he did in December, showing that he has found a groove. In the past two months, Koufos is averaging 9.3 points on 62.8 percent shooting from the floor, 7.0 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 25 minutes. While the numbers aren’t mind-blowing, they’re steady. If you need that in your fantasy life, Koufos is a nice option.
