2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 3 Waiver Wire

on

Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 3 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.

With position eligibility being different in each league, this column will just reference the positions as a generic Guard, Forward, and Center.

Justin Holiday, G, Indiana Pacers

The Pacers have lost T.J. Warren indefinitely to a foot injury. There may be a few guys that have a slight uptick in production because of the injury, but Holiday is the guy to grab. In the last four games, Holiday is putting up stats across multiple categories: 11 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 1.0 APG, 1.8 SPG, 1.8 triples.

He will not put up stud numbers, but with Warren out, he should help you across the board and return solid value for a waiver wire find.

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, G, Brooklyn Nets

Like Holiday above, Luwawu-Cabarrot is a direct beneficiary of a major injury. Spencer Dinwiddie suffered an ACL tear that will cause him to miss the remainder of the season. Since the injury, his MPG has jumped from 6.6 MPG to 27 MPG. That is a significant leap.

His production has not been spectacular, but the potential is there. If you have a spot and are in need of some solid stats across the board, give him a look.

Naz Reid, C – Minnesota Timberwolves

With Karl-Anthony Towns banged up, playing time has opened up for Reid. Reid is making the most out of his new role, posting a respectable 13 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 2 APG, 1 SPG, 1 3PM/G, and 0.7 BPG.

The numbers Reid is producing are top 90 stats in 9-cat leagues.

KAT’s timetable to return has not been established, so Reid deserves to be on your bench since centers are hard to come by on the wire.

Cameron Johnson, G – Phoenix Suns

Despite coming off the bench to start the season (22 MPG), Johnson is contributing on a nightly basis for the Suns.

The young guard out of North Carolina is averaging 12.7 PPG while shooting 49.2% from the field and 39.5% from deep. His defensive stats are bit lacking (.07 SPG, .4 BPG), but he makes up for that by adding 2.4 3PM/G and 2.7 RPG.

The youngster should see his minutes increase if he keeps this up, so grab him while you can.
