2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Week 22 Planner
Week 22 Playoff Streamer Consideration
It is important to decide who to stream (assuming you can get ahead of your opponents on the wire).
Elements to consider are minutes, performance in the last 6-9 games, and their role (for players resting or injured) alongside their potential upside. You will also need to be very vigilantly looking for players' updates and notes to make the proper moves.
Caris LeVert (SG/SF)
Throughout his previous six games, LeVert averaged 15.2 points, 4.3 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 threes, 1.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks. Even though Cleveland was missing Donovan Mitchell for one of those games and Darius Garland for another, LeVert has recently seemed to find his rhythm, whether he's starting in lieu of one of the team's elite guards or in his usual sixth-man spot. He is currently playing his best basketball of the season.

Malik Monk (SG)
Kevin Huerter (hamstring) left Thursday's game against the Nets, and it's possible that he will have to sit out a number of contests. Monk, on the other hand, has averaged in the last five games 23.5 minutes, 14.8 points, 4.8 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 3.2 three-pointers, 1.0 steal, and 0.6 blocks. Monk is a danger to score every time he steps on the court, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect on him to continue making defensive contributions.
Keep an eye on Huerter's health at the very least because Monk would obviously be added if he weren't. But, Sacramento has four games scheduled for the next week, so even if Huerter can try it out as soon as possible, Monk still has a lot to gain.

Royce O'Neale (SG/SF)
O'Neale was rostered in the majority of leagues at the start of the season as he led a title-contending squad that included Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in exceptional multi-category scoring. Although it now seems like a long time ago, O'Neale has rebounded following a difficult period of play during which most fantasy managers dropped him. In his last five games, O'Neale has averaged 9.4 points, 8.4 boards, 2.6 assists, 2.4 three-pointers, and 1.4 steals in 27.9 minutes. O'Neale is a player worth taking into account in most formats given that Brooklyn has four games scheduled for the upcoming week.
