Kelly Oubre Jr. (Washington Wizards)
With all the drama that has unfolded in Washington, a trade involving John Wall or Bradley Beal could be imminent.
If Wall or Beal do leave town, it could boost Oubre Jr. up the pecking order. The forward has proven to be a handy source of points, threes, rebounds and steals when given the opportunity.
He is also wildly inconsistent. Oubre Jr. was promoted to the starting lineup in today’s win over the LA Clippers but got caught in foul trouble and posted a dud, with just three points, a triple and a steal in 12 minutes.
Tomas Satoranksy (Washington Wizards)
Much like Oubre Jr., Satoransky finds himself in a position where his stock could seriously jolt if Washington trade away some key pieces, particularly Wall.
Satoransky has proven to be a handy fantasy commodity in the past, notably last season when Wall missed time through injury.
Scott Brooks admitted last week that he will look to get Satoransky more involved, and he put up a nice line today against the Clippers. The Czech guard recorded 13 points, a triple, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals with nice percentages, while only committing one turnover in 24 minutes.
Juancho Hernangomez (Denver Nuggets)
Nuggets coach Michael Malone has tried to cover the loss of Will Barton (groin) in a multitude of ways this season, and he may have found his answer.
Hernangomez has played well since recently being promoted to the starting lineup, with two big lines against the Atlanta Hawks and Milwaukee Bucks before struggling in a tough matchup against the Giannis Antetokounmpo.
The Spanish forward should be a handy streaming option for points, threes and rebounds so long as Barton is out, which could be for another month.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (LA Lakers)
KCP has seen an extra slice of minutes since Rajon Rondo went down with a broken hand, who will miss 3-5 weeks after undergoing surgery.
Coming off a 19-point outing against the Miami Heat which included three triples, KCP should be on everyone’s radar given his ability to provide threes and steals.
Buyer beware: KCP is a career 40 per cent shooter from the field.
Trey Burke (New York Knicks)
Anyone outside of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Enes Kanter is largely irrelevant for the Knicks, but you have to love what Burke is doing.
The point guard is averaging 24.6 points and 1.6 threes on 61 per cent shooting from the field in 26.6 minutes over his last three contests.
We have seen this so many times from Burke in the past, but another couple of big performances cannot be ignored. There are worse guys you could take a punt on.
