2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 9 Waiver Wire


Welcome to the 2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 9 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.

2020-21 Fantasy Basketball Week 9 Waiver Wire

Jae’Sean Tate, G/F, Houston Rockets

The once undrafted rookie out of Ohio State is starting to come on for the Rockets.

Tate has scored 12.3 PPG with 5.7 RPG over his last six games with close to a steal (.7) and a block (.5) per game.

With Victor Oladipo banged up (may also be traded) and John Wall seemingly always missing time, Tate should have a spot no matter what moving forward.

Marcus Morris, F, Los Angeles Clippers

There is seemingly no time table for the return of Paul George, so it is time for Marcus Morris to earn that big offseason contract.

Morris has scored in double digits for five straight games while averaging 4.6 RPG during that span.

He will not blow you away statistically ally, but he will be a source for points and rebounds.

Dwayne Bacon, G/F, Orlando Magic

The Magic are a walking mash unit currently.

Cole Anthony, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon are all either out for an extended time or have a lingering ailment.

Insert Bacon!

Bacon has been stepping for Orlando in the month of February, contributing in points (13.3), three-pointers made (2.3) and rebounds (3.7).

His assists numbers should also be on the rise as he will handle the ball more by default.

Zeke Nnaji, C/F, Denver Nuggets

This one may be a week too soon, but Zeke Nnaji needs to be on your radar.

It is yet unknown the severity of the Paul Milsap injury, and Denver has a lack of bigs behind him and Nikola Jokic.

The rookie from Arizona played extended minutes on Sunday, scoring 16 points, three rebounds and four threes.

He has played with confidence that should yield some minutes over the next week or so.
