Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Waiver Wire.
The focus will be on players that are roughly less than 40% owned in Yahoo leagues with some over 40%. Make sure that you check your league's availability.
I will try to keep each wavier wire column focused on new names, only touching on previous players if they may still be widely available.
This week and the next few leading up to the NBA trade deadline, I will highlight a player or two to pick up and stash. There could be some fantasy gold sitting behind a veteran that may be moved.
With position eligibility being different in each league, this column will just reference the positions as a generic Guard, Forward, and Center.
2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 11 Waiver Wire
Robert Williams, C, Boston Celtics

There is a good chance that Williams AKA Timelord is owned in your league, and he is right on the border of the 40% ownership but his name needs to be brought up.
All signs point to a big post All-Star game breakout for Williams. Yes, Boston could trade for a big, but Williams is making a case to play no matter what.
In category-based leagues, Williams is already worth the roster spot based on his shot-blocking abilities. He has turned away 13 shots in the last five games.
His overall game is starting to take form as well, as proof by his line on the 26th against Indiana. Williams has 22 points to go with 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.
Williams needs to be owned in all dynasty leagues, that is for sure. In re-draft leagues, for the blocks alone, roster him.
Jaylen Nowell, F, Minnesota Timberwolves
Malik Beasley is serving a 12 game suspension with currently 11 games left on that suspension. Enter Jaylen Nowell, a second year guard from Washington.
Nowell has been stepping up his game even prior to the suspension of Beasley, scoring in double figures four out of the last five games.
Let’s be honest, the Wolves are a mess. They are in the midst of a losing streak, and they really have nothing to play for, the youth will get a chance a shine.
Nowell should continue to get plenty of minutes, contributing in both points and rebounds for any fantasy team.
Justise Winslow, G/F, Memphis Grizzlies
Yes, I know what all of you are thinking when they saw his name on this list, “Isn’t he just going to get hurt again?”, and you have every right to think that.
I have always been a believer in his talents, and he is still only 24 years old (making him more of a dynasty pick-up).
He is a talented all-around player with a knack for scoring. Winslow scored 20 points on 66.7% shooting in his fourth game back, showing off his offensive skills.
Since his return, he is already averaging over 20 minutes a game, showing that the Grizz want to have him out on the court.
Isaiah Roby, F, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danuel House Jr., G/F, Houston Rockets
Both Roby and House fall under the umbrella of players that could benefit from a veteran being move at that deadline. Both players would have a path to immediate minutes.
In OKC, Al Horford, and in Houston P.J. Tucker, have both garnered attention on the trade market. There is a very high chance that both vets could be moved at or before the deadline.
House would be more of an instant impact, helping with threes and rebounds, whereas Roby has the more long-term dynasty upside with the better all-around game to contribute across the board.
