2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 14 Waiver Wire

Jabari Walker, SF/PF, Portland Trail Blazers (21% owned)

Jabari Walker of the Portland Trail Blazers is on the rise. Starting in their last three games, he's averaging 33.3 minutes, contributing 9.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. Coach Chauncey Billups seems to be counting on Walker's contributions at the forward position.

The Trail Blazers have a packed Week 14, with four games scheduled, including a beneficial three-game run over four nights. They'll face the Oklahoma City Thunder and Houston Rockets in a back-to-back series starting Tuesday, take on the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, and wrap up against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

Walker is an attractive option for Week 14, especially in deeper leagues where points and rebounds are needed. He also presents potential long-term value. As the Blazers might give their veterans a break in March, Walker could see increased playing time, making him a smart early add and a valuable asset for your fantasy team's future.

Mason Plumlee, PF/C, Los Angeles Clippers (21% owned)

Ivica Zubac's right calf strain has sidelined him for multiple weeks, opening the door for Mason Plumlee to step up for the Los Angeles Clippers. In his recent start against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Plumlee logged an impressive 28.2 minutes, despite initial concerns about a minutes restriction due to his own recent injury. He delivered with 14 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, and 3 blocks.

Daniel Theis, previously ahead of Plumlee in the rotation, still managed to post solid numbers off the bench with 9 points and 8 rebounds in just 19 minutes. Keep an eye on both players' court time, as they might share duties at Center. Plumlee, especially if he continues starting or playing significant minutes, is worth picking up in deeper leagues. That is particularly so if you're looking to improve your team's field goal percentage and rebounding, and are less concerned about free-throw impact. Plumlee's ability to provide assists from the center position adds another dimension to his fantasy value.

Patrick Williams, PF, Chicago Bulls (27% owned)

Zach LaVine's recent right ankle sprain means he'll miss multiple games, paving the way for Patrick Williams to step up once again. Recall in December, when LaVine was sidelined, Williams delivered an impressive 14.1 points, 1.9 threes, 4.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.9 blocks per game, equating to 9th-round value in nine-category leagues.

Patrick Williams has had a rollercoaster season, causing some frustration among fantasy managers. However, with LaVine out for the upcoming games, Williams presents a valuable opportunity for those looking to bolster their lineup with threes and defensive stats. Consider adding and streaming Williams, aiming to capitalize on his potential until LaVine's return to the court.

Jordan Hawkins, SG, New Orleans Pelicans (11% owned)

Jordan Hawkins has made his way back into the New Orleans Pelicans' rotation, even edging ahead of Jose Alvarado recently. Over his last four outings, Hawkins has been on fire, averaging 19.3 points, 4.0 threes, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.0 steals per game, landing him in the top-70 in nine-category leagues for that stretch.

While Hawkins' performance can be hit or miss, a steady role in the low 20s minutes-wise could see him continue contributing valuable points and threes. He's a smart streaming option, particularly when starters sit out back-to-back games. While not a must-have player, Hawkins is certainly worth considering in deeper leagues for his scoring and three-point potential.
