2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Drop List

by Greyson Adams

The trade deadline has more than likely passed in your league, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't stop making moves. To help you free up space to improve your team, I have made the 2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Drop List.

This list isn't as simple as me telling you which players to drop, though. There's context to it. These lists are made based on 9-category, or 9-cat, leagues. I also broke down who I would drop based on which size league you're playing in. Here's my full classification list.

Shallow league: 8- or 10-team leagues with normal roster size (about 15 players per team) or a 12-team league with a smaller roster (about 12-13 players per team).

Standard league: 12-team leagues with a normal roster size, or 14-team leagues with a shallow roster

Deep league: 14 or more teams with larger roster sizes. Typically the area for basketball sickos (like myself).

I've also added a new category: injury drops. These are players that aren't worth stashing at this point in the season thanks to their injury timeline.

If you have any questions, feel free to tweet me or message me on Twitter (no I will not call it by its other name). Also, make sure you check out our Rest of Season Basketball Rankings for more help deciding who to drop from your roster.

Disclaimer: This list was made before games on Wednesday, March 6th. Things can change very quickly, so be on the lookout for that!

Let's get into my 2023-24 Fantasy Basketball Week 19 Drop List.

Injury Drops

Here's a list of fantasy-relevant players you can let go of due to their unfortunate injuries: Russell Westbrook (hand), Tari Eason (leg), Jakob Poeltl (pinky), Scottie Barnes (hand), De'Anthony Melton (back).

Here's a list of players you can stash, but there's only a small chance they come back and contribute to your team: Joel Embiid (knee), Marcus Smart (finger), Lamelo Ball (ankle), Desmond Bane (ankle), Trae Young (finger), OG Anunoby (elbow), Malcolm Brogdon (elbow), Julius Randle (shoulder).

Shallow League Drops

Kevin Huerter, SG/SF, Sacramento Kings

This one is likely a bit more controversial, but remember this is for shallow leagues. His contribution to success relies on his three-point shooting and high volume to get sufficient counting stats. Both of these things have seen large fluctuations as the Kings have started to tinker with their lineup more.

It's easier to roster him when he's playing 30+ minutes per game. But when he starts to drop into the low 20s, that's when it gets dicey. Depending on how your waiver wire looks, I wouldn't be opposed to moving off him for a weekly stream with more games.

Standard League Drops

Tim Hardaway Jr., SG/SF, Dallas Mavericks

THJ is down to just 33% from the field over the last month on almost ten shots per game. According to Basketball Monster, his field goal percentage has the 7th most negative effect on a team's field goal percentage category of 481 players.

Besides his threes, he hardly offers anything of substance to your team. He should be dropped unless you truly believe his shooting slump ends now.

Deep League Drops

Moses Moody, SG/SF, Golden State Warriors

After a serviceable four-game stretch, Moody once again belongs on the waiver wire. His minutes and volume hinge on the absence of Andrew Wiggins, who is reportedly ready to go tonight after being away from the team due to personal matters.

Should any injuries occur to any rotation players, he would again be a pickup, but there's no reason to hold him for now.

Bol Bol, PF/C, Phoenix Suns

The Bol Bol hype always seems to be on its last legs before getting a sudden resurgence. This happened again recently with a big 25/14 night against Houston, followed by a solid 11/4 with 2 blocks against the Los Angeles Lakers. He didn't have a strong outing against Houston in the third game of this stretch, but he did play 26 minutes.

This can be enough for people to latch on. After this three-game stretch where he averaged almost 26 minutes per game, however, he's played just 10 minutes per game over his last three games. It seems that while he is a mainstay in the rotation now, his role varies nightly. He's risky to hold onto for that reason and should be dropped in almost all formats.
