2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Buy Low-Sell High

We're back in action after what's felt like an eternity without basketball. And what better way to kick it off than with some fantasy basketball trade talk? That's why I give you the 2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Buy Low-Sell High. Were in the home stretch ladies and gents!

If you're new to my weekly segment, this article comes out every Friday. I go over players that I feel you should target or move on from. But not every player will be in the same tier. I divide them into groups to help you better understand who I would prioritize as a target. They are split into three sections: buy/sell of the week, main buy/sell targets, and other players to buy/sell.

As it is with most things, context is important. I normally determine my selections based on 9-category leagues, also called 9-cat. If you are in a points league, this may still help, but I cannot guarantee it. If you're unsure, or just have any fantasy basketball questions in general, you can reach out to me on Twitter @GreysonAdams907, or click the link here to get to my page.

2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Buy Low-Sell High

Buy of the Week: Aaron Gordon, SF/PF, Denver Nuggets

Gordon is set to miss another game this Thursday against the Cleveland Cavaliers. What seemed to be a small injury has turned into something bigger, with Gordon missing his fourth consecutive game despite having the all-star break to recover.

Given the position of the Denver Nuggets in the western conference standings, I believe that this is precautionary. However, head coach Michael Malone recently emphasized the importance of getting not just the one seed in the west, but the one seed overall. They'll need Gordon to do this, so it's my belief that he will be back to playing in every game very soon. Now is the best time to buy with his injury frustrations.

Aaron Gordon has been a great fantasy player to have, especially if you're punting free throw percentage. He ranks 40th this season in 9-cat leagues when punting free throw percentage, according to Basketball Monster. I would expect more of the same for the home stretch.

Main Buy Target

Gabe Vincent, PG/SG, Miami Heat

Vincent has been starting in place of the injured Kyle Lowry and has done an excellent job. Many are likely to view his production as temporary, but I feel like he's earned this spot and will continue to play at least thirty minutes a game going forward. His shooting and overall production are necessary for the Miami Heat, and it's something that Kyle Lowry just doesn't provide.

Over his last six games, Vincent has played 34 or more minutes and is averaging 2.67 triples a game. He's also been a solid source of steals and points, and his other stats aren't amazing but they get the job done for what his value is.

Other Players to Buy

Ochai Agbaji, SG/SF, Utah Jazz

Agbaji has recently seen an uptick in minutes due to trades and injuries. Combine that with the fact that the Utah Jazz will likely look to tank, and Agbaji should have a good end to the season. He's a solid low-end guy to have for triples, and while the defensive stats aren't there yet, I would project those to increase moving forward.

He's someone you can take a chance on without giving almost anything up. If you're in a deeper league I would try to get him cheap off a roster before his minutes become more consistent.

Herb Jones, SG/SF/PF, New Orleans Pelicans

This isn't a traditional buy-low player. Herb Jones has been playing like his normal self. However, Zion Williamson is likely out for the rest of the season and almost guaranteed to be out the rest of the fantasy season. Herb Jones is the largest beneficiary of this news.

His minutes should remain in the low-to-mid thirties moving forward, which makes him very valuable for stocks while not hurting you in efficiency categories. His positional versatility can also be very helpful in giving you lineup flexibility.

He isn't having the standout season he did last year, but that could change for the better as I believe he's currently playing at his floor.

Sell of the Week: Bradley Beal, SG, Washington Wizards

Bradley Beal is dealing with yet another injury. The Washington Wizards are yet again in limbo between the contenders and the tankers. With no true hopes in the playoffs, Beal is likely to be cautious with his injuries. We could see a lot of missed games from the veteran guard, which isn't what you need going into the fantasy playoffs.

He's been excellent lately, scoring more than thirty points in three of his last five games. Use this to ship him off to another team, and keep yours healthier for the playoffs.

Main Sell Target

Karl-Anthony Towns, PF/C, Minnesota Timberwolves

Shams Charania of The Athletic has reported that Towns will likely return during the Minnesota Timberwolves last "10 to 15 games" of the season. This news might spark some hope for fantasy managers, but it's important to note a few things.

The first is that this is an estimate, not a concrete timeline. Even the report itself has some doubts about it. Second, once KAT does return, we won't be seeing him play more than twenty minutes a game until the very end of the season, well past when fantasy playoffs end. The ramp-up period will be significant. The T-Wolves won't want to push it and have him get hurt again going into the postseason.

Use this new news to ship him off for any value you can get, because he may not even be back in time for fantasy championship week.

Other Players to Sell

Isaiah Hartenstein, C, New York Knicks

Hartenstein has been a top-80 9-cat performer over the last month per Yahoo! Fantasy Basketball. He's contributed mainly in field goal percentage, rebounds, and stocks, but it looks like that will come to an end soon. Starting center Mitchell Robinson, who has been out since mid-January, practiced both Wednesday and Thursday. His status remains up in the air, but his return is imminent.

Robinson's return would push Hartenstein back to the bench, rendering him useless for fantasy. Try to throw him into a trade package to get some value out of him before Robinson is officially back.
