2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 13 Waiver Wire


Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 13 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 will touch on two players who will see time due two injured stars ahead of them as well as a rising star in Brooklyn.

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 13 Waiver Wire

Nicolas Claxton, C, Brooklyn Nets

This one may come as a surprise with DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin both eating up minutes in the middle, but the young big is making it hard for Steve Nash to leave him on the bench.

Claxton is pushing Jordan for that starting nod at center, with his dynamic play on both ends of the floor.

Through March, Claxton is averaging 10.6 PPG, 4.5 RPG and 1.8 BPG. To go along with that stat line, his FG% of 67.3% is an added bonus.

The minutes right now for Claxton may be a little erratic but he is worth the stash as he holds value for this year and his dynasty stock is on the rise.

Jordan Poole, G, Golden State Warriors

What a turnaround the former first-round pick is making. At one point in his young career, there were some doubts if he would make it in the NBA.

Over the last month, since his return from the G-League, he is providing consistent value in 9-cat leagues (primarily points, 3s, and shooting %). Poole has played the primary sixth-man role as of late for the Warriors, but with the injury to Steph Curry, he should see some starter minutes.

Talen Horton-Tucker, G/F, Los Angeles Lakers

The Lakers are banged up bad now that LeBron James is most likely out the next month with an ankle injury.

Insert Horton-Tucker, the player that caught the league by storm during an amazing stretch this pre-season. He will be asked to step up, take on a heavy workload and contribute for the foreseeable future.

If the pre-season has taught us anything, we can expect THT to put up some numbers. Expect him to help owners with points, assists and rebounds.

Moses Brown, C/F Oklahoma City Thunder 

Brown was recently called up from the G-League and has seen his success carry over into the NBA.

Since the all-star break, he has been a mainstay in the lineup for the Thunder. His numbers recently have gone up with Al Horford resting with a potential trade looming.

Brown is poised for a big breakout the rest of the way. Horford should be shipped out of town and the Thunder most likely will want to see what they have in their younger players the rest of the way.
