2022-23 Fantasy Basketball Week 24 Waiver Wire

Dominate your Fantasy Basketball league with customized team advice using the Fantasy Pros MyPlaybook.

Drew Eubanks, PF/C, Portland Trail Blazers (27% owned)

Let us talk about the Portland Trail Blazers and their secret weapon: Drew Eubanks.  Now, you might be thinking, "the Trail Blazers? Aren't they tanking right now?" Well, my astute friends, that's precisely the point. With Portland's starters getting a breather, it's time for the unsung heroes to shine—and Eubanks is doing just that.

In the last five games, this rising star has been lighting up the stat sheet like a Christmas tree, averaging a delightful 10.8 PPG, 8.2 RPG, 2.4 APG, 1.2 SPG, and 2.2 BPG. Eubanks isn't just warming the bench; he's heating up the court with 26.8 minutes per game and shooting percentages that would make any player proud (48.8% FG on 8.6 FGA and 70.6% on 3.4 FTA). All this wizardry has propelled him to the 80th-ranked player in nine-category leagues during that span. Not too shabby, eh?

But wait, there's more! Week 24 is when the real magic happens. The Portland Trail Blazers are one of the rare teams playing on the quieter days of the week (Thursday and Saturday). This enchanting schedule makes them perfect for streaming purposes. Their three-game stretch in four nights kicks off on Thursday, where they'll battle the not-so-intimidating San Antonio Spurs. Following that skirmish, they'll face back-to-back showdowns with the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors on Saturday and Sunday.

So, fellow fantasy managers, heed my advice: snatch up Drew Eubanks in week 24 like a dragon hoarding gold. With increased opportunities in the final stretch of the regular season, Eubanks is poised to provide a much-needed boost for those still duking it out in the playoffs. Don't miss out on this hidden gem!

Sandro Mamukelashvili, PF/C, San Antonio Spurs (10% owned)

Grab your popcorn and pull up a chair because we're diving into the San Antonio Spurs' soap opera-like drama. The Spurs' stars (Keldon Johnson, Devin Vassell, and Zach Collins) haven't officially been benched for the season, but it's no secret they're getting some extended R&R. As a result, a new hero has emerged from the shadows: enter Sandro Mamukelashvili!

Surging like a caffeinated kangaroo, Mamukelashvili has been jumping all over the court, providing some much-needed energy for the Spurs. In his last six games, he's averaged a spicy 14.2 PPG, 1.0 3PG, 6.8 RPG, and 3.3 APG. In that stretch, he's been dishing out ninth-round numbers in nine-category leagues. Talk about an unexpected treat!

Now, let's peek at week 24's schedule, where the real fun begins. A select few teams will play on the hush-hush days of Thursday and Saturday, and the San Antonio Spurs are part of that exclusive club. They'll embark on a three-game adventure in four nights, with two of those games happening on Thursday and Saturday—an absolute streaming bonanza! They'll kick off this thrilling stretch by facing off against the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday, followed by back-to-back showdowns with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks on Saturday and Sunday.

Among the Spurs' roster, Sandro Mamukelashvili is the shining star we can trust in these turbulent times. So, my fellow fantasy managers, seize the day and grab Mamukelashvili in week 24! Take advantage of his increased opportunity and delightful schedule. He's proven he can rise to the occasion off the bench, and his upside only grows when he starts. Don't miss out on this surging sensation!

Kris Dunn, PG/SG, Utah Jazz (25% owned)

We will be talking about a player whose name might as well be "Kris Done" because he's done nothing but impress for the Utah Jazz. With most of their starters (Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton) still out and others taking rest days (Lauri Markkanen and Kelly Olynyk), Kris Dunn has stepped in and ignited the spark this team so desperately needed.

In just 17 games this season, Dunn has been churning out some delectable stats like an all-you-can-eat fantasy buffet. He's been serving up 11.8 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 5.1 APG, and 1.1 SPG, cooking up ninth-round numbers in nine-category leagues. Bon appétit, fantasy managers!

As we turn our attention to week 24, the Utah Jazz find themselves among the elite few who'll be playing on the mysterious quiet days (Thursday and Saturday). They'll kick off a thrilling three-game stretch in four nights on Thursday by going head-to-head with the Oklahoma City Thunder. After that, they'll take on the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers in back-to-back showdowns on Saturday and Sunday.

So, my fellow hoop heads, keep Kris Dunn on your radar in week 24, especially if Kelly Olynyk decides to take a breather. Dunn will be an invaluable asset for managers seeking a boost in assists and steals. With the Utah Jazz's tantalizing schedule in week 24, Dunn is the streaming target you won't want to miss. Don't sleep on this hidden gem!
