Larry Hughes - Fantasy BasketballWire to Wire aims to be your waiver wire resource for all of your fantasy basketball needs. It will dive into playing time trends, injury replacements, and even an occasional category specialist—all of which can be found on a typical waiver wire within your fantasy league at any given time.

With the All-Star break right around the corner, a few teams within the Association cannot wait for it to get here thanks to several big injuries throughout the league.  In fact, we’ve already had an All-Star game replacement as Kevin Garnett’s abdominal injury has opened the door for Detroit’s Rasheed Wallace to take part in the festivities.  While he hopes the Western Conference puts Dirk Nowitzki opposite him on gameday, fantasy owners will be left to fill any void which they may have over the next few days.  Below, you’ll see plenty of options for your backcourt, with a surprise mention for a second-half frontcourt presence.  Could a certain big man ride off into the Sun-set with one last ring?  No pun intended, of course…

In what will likely be the biggest move of this NBA season, the Los Angeles Lakers have made a deal to bolster their frontcourt.  Not only does this help the team, as Andrew Bynum is still on the shelf, it opens up a ton of room for someone to step up on the Grizzlies.  Could we possibly see some nice numbers from a former second-overall selection?  This week’s edition of Wire to Wire seems to think so.

Chris Webber - Fantasy Basketball????...Oh…We’re Half Way There….????

Almost as a little addition to yesterday’s Wire to Wire, I wanted to add two new names that you fantasy folks may want to keep an eye on: Chris Webber and Earl Boykins.

Webber has officially signed with the Golden State Warriors, despite many people still wondering exactly “why.”  While Webber is undoubtedly older, slower and in all-around worse shape than he was a year ago when he gallivanted around Detroit, Golden State seems to be a breading ground for fantasy relevance.  As of now, I think C-Webb will have more of a negative impact on the fantasy value of others (see Biedrins, Andris and Harrington, Al) - but this doesn’t mean he should be counted out.  Don Nelson may make this thing work!

If you have followed this column from the beginning, you know that I am a sucker for big men and point guards.  Last week, I felt that I had shorted the readers a bit, recommending a slew of ‘tweener types, like Ryan Gomes, Marko Jaric and the like.  Well, with Jaric deciding to put up near triple-doubles and then following those games up with next to nothing, I’m going back to my old ways.  Injuries in Cleveland as well as a possible big-named trade in New Jersey pave the way for this week’s edition of WtW.  Enjoy.

Another week, and some more big-name injuries to tend to in the fantasy basketball world.  As if Andrew Bynum wasn’t enough, the Lakers are now going to be without Trevor Ariza.  The Nuggets are now contending with the loss of another forward, the Pacers may be missing an All-Star for the rest of the season, and we may be seeing a long-term answer at the starting off-guard for the Bulls.  With all of this having fantasy implications, let’s dig into this week’s edition of Wire to Wire.

Andrew Bynum - Fantasy Basketball

We may as well cut to the chase this week, as owners everywhere are scrambling to cover their losses as Los Angeles Lakers big man Andrew Bynum will miss considerable time with a knee injury.  Last week, Bynum continued to be one of the biggest surprises in the fantasy game.  This week, he’s relegated to taking up a slot on the end of a bench because you simply cannot drop a player of his caliber.  We’ll explore options for owners in all formats, and even sprinkle in a few other names for good measure.

While most editions of Wire to Wire have a theme, I can honestly say that this week’s is strictly based on upside potential.  We have a couple of rookies, a couple of veterans, and even a fantasy stud that could be returning from a certain neck injury of his own.  The Brandon Roy injury may shake things up in Portland a bit, but with the ‘Blazers not playing until Wednesday, the reigning Rookie of the Year will have some time for his tailbone to heal.

Can a week go by without a big-named player landing on the injury report?  It’s not looking to be the case this week as two of the game’s more prominent small forwards will miss considerable time, and the possible Rookie of the Year may lose a bit of ground.  Things are still quirky in the Big Apple, and a trade between Utah and Philadelphia may change the fantasy landscape for a few players.  With that said, this will be the last Wire to Wire for 2007.  Enjoy.

Another week in the books and another handful of injuries to report.  It was not a good week to be a swingman as several big names (and some not-so-big) have fallen to the injury bug, allowing for a few more minutes to go around.  If you’re an owner of Tracy McGrady, Manu Ginobili or Corey Maggette, you will definitely want to explore some short term options over the holiday week.

Another injury in Washington seems to have opened up some playing time for a few guys who were struggling to get touches as early as a few weeks ago.  If small-ball isn’t your thing, then take a gander at some of the “bigs” that we have going this week.  One of them fell threw the cracks last week, so here’s hoping that he fell through your leagues’ as well.
