2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 13 Waiver Wire

Xavier Tillman Sr., PF/C, Memphis Grizzlies (39% owned)

Xavier Tillman Sr. is making waves for the Memphis Grizzlies. With only one center left after Steven Adams' season-ending injury and the waiving of Bismack Biyombo, Tillman is seizing his chance. Over his last three games, he's averaged an impressive 15.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 1.7 blocks, playing 31.5 minutes per game. Despite a shaky 45.5% free-throw rate, his 58.8% field goal shooting is noteworthy. In nine-category leagues, he's ranked in the 8th round for this period.

Week 13 brings a challenging schedule for the Grizzlies, facing the Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Chicago Bulls. Despite this, Tillman remains a top pick-up. His potential shone last season, and with injuries plaguing key players like Ja Morant, Marcus Smart, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Desmond Bane, Tillman's role could expand even more. Santi Aldama's return might impact his value, but Tillman's unique big-man production is a rare find on the waiver wire. Grab him while you can!

Vince Williams Jr., SG, Memphis Grizzlies (32% owned)

Attention Grizzlies fans and deep league players! With a string of injuries hitting key players like Ja Morant, Marcus Smart, and Desmond Bane, Vince Williams Jr. emerges as a potential waiver-wire gem. Starting in 10 games this season, he's posted averages of 7.6 points, 1.6 threes, 7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 1.3 steals. His recent performance against the New York Knicks was particularly impressive, racking up 17 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and a block.

While Williams Jr.'s scoring spike might be an outlier, his contributions in threes, rebounds, and steals seem sustainable given his increased minutes. With the Grizzlies navigating through injuries and possibly shifting toward tank mode later in the season, Williams Jr. becomes an attractive target on the waiver wire.

Despite the Grizzlies' challenging Week 13 schedule, which includes matchups against the Golden State Warriors, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Chicago Bulls, Williams Jr. is worth a shot. Just be aware, he's not a big scorer (averaging 7.6 points per game) and his field goal percentage sits at 33.3%. He's a smart pick for those needing a boost in threes, rebounds, and steals. Keep expectations in check, but consider grabbing Williams Jr. for some potential upside.

Luke Kennard, PG/SG, Memphis Grizzlies (24% owned)

Grizzlies' sharpshooter alert! Luke Kennard steps into the spotlight as our latest waiver wire recommendation. With the Grizzlies reeling from injuries to Ja Morant, Marcus Smart, and Desmond Bane, Kennard has seized his opportunity. In four starts, he's been lighting it up with averages of 12.0 points, 2.8 threes, 4.5 rebounds, and 3.8 assists, all while maintaining an impressive 56.3% shooting from the field.

Though his defensive stats might not stand out, Kennard's efficient scoring and three-point prowess are key. But there's more to him than just shooting from deep. Given the Grizzlies' current roster challenges, Kennard's role has expanded, offering potential boosts in points, threes, assists, and free-throw impact.

Don't hesitate to pick up Kennard, even with the Grizzlies facing a challenging schedule. His ability to contribute in multiple categories, especially in scoring and threes, makes him a valuable asset for any fantasy team. Grab Luke Kennard now and watch him step up his game.

Cam Whitmore, SF, Houston Rockets (8% owned)

Cam Whitmore is turning heads as a reserve for the Rockets over his last 7 games, despite averaging just 19.7 minutes, Whitmore's stats have been impressive. He's notching 12.3 points, 1.6 threes, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.1 steals per game, shooting 49.2% from the field and 86.7% from the line.

Whitmore's surge comes as Tari Eason remains sidelined. With news that Eason could be out another 1-2 weeks, Whitmore's window of opportunity just got wider.

The Rockets have a busy Week 13, including a back-to-back against the Jazz and Celtics on Saturday and Sunday. Need a boost in points, threes, and steals? Whitmore is your guy. Dillon Brooks' return hasn't dented Whitmore's performance, which bodes well. Now's the time to take a flyer on this promising rookie, at least until Eason's back in action.
