Fantasy basketball owners are typically pleased when a player gets plenty of run—unless the stats he’s piling up are of the negative variety. Ty Lawson and Andre Iguodala don’t need another trade to shake up the Denver Nuggets roster in order to play more minutes, but each of them should improve their respective fantasy games as the season wears on regardless.
A couple of marquee fantasy big men—and John Wall—haven’t performed up to expectations this season due to injuries that they’re working through. While Dwight Howard may never hit 80 percent of his free throws, there is reason to believe that the rest of his fantasy game will improve beyond the 16.7 PPG, 12.0 RPG and 2.5 BPG that he’s averaging this year.
It should simply be a matter of time before Dirk Nowitzki becomes Dirk Nowitzki again.
