Aaron Brooks (Rockets)- Brooks averaged 15 points, five rebounds, five assists, and 1.3 steals in three games last week. He also shot 45 percent from the field and 91 percent from the free throw line. He has played at least 42 minutes in two of his past three games with PG Rafer Alston sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Jarret Jack (Pacers)- Jack scored a season-high 27 points against the Clippers last Friday. In his past three games he is averaging 21 points, 5.6 assists, and two steals per game. PG T.J. Ford returned to the lineup on Saturday from a groin injury. 

However, Jack played 31 minutes in that game and dished out a season-high eight assists.

Honorable mention: Louis Williams (76ers)



James Singleton (Mavs)- Singleton pulled down 13 rebounds, blocked three shots, and had three steals against the Wizards yesterday. He played 28 minutes and can be a good source for FG percentage and rebounds if given enough playing time.

Andres Nocioni (Bulls)- Over his past three games Nocioni has averaged 17.6 points, six rebounds, and two three-pointers. He also has played at least 33 minutes in each game during this span while shooting 51 percent from the field.

Honorable mention: Marreese Speights (76ers)



Nick Collison (Thunder)- Collison has scored in double figures in three of his past four games while grabbing seven rebounds in that span. He blocked three shots last Tuesday, and has played at least 21 minutes in eight straight games.

Ryan Hollins (Bobcats)- Hollins has six blocked shots in his past three games. He does not receive consistent minutes but can contribute in the FG percentage and blocks categories.

Honorable mention: Ryan Anderson (Nets)
