Week 12 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire

*Mentioned previously & must add if available: Hamidou Diallo, Nicolas Claxton, and Herbert Jones

Larry Nance Jr., PF/C – Portland Trail Blazers (52% rostered)

Larry Nance Jr. has been a top-65 player in fantasy for the past month and could use a bit more of our attention. Already a productive player, then throw Jusuf Nurkic in health protocols and it’s going to be quite the week for Larry Nance Jr. Nance has posted nine rebounds in back-to-back games now and is averaging 13.5 points, 9.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists, and 1.5 steals during that span. Nance has posted at least 10 points and five rebounds in four straight games and has a four-game week on the horizon. Get ready for Nance to make some noise in Rip City.

Terance Mann, SG/SF – Los Angeles Clippers (42% rostered)

The Clippers are dealing with all sorts of injuries at the moment, the main one being Paul George who’s dealing with a torn ligament in his right elbow and is expected to miss at least the next three weeks. Enter Terance Mann the playoff hero who dropped 39-points against the Jazz last year is finally starting to make some noise. No better time than the new year! Mann has now posted double-digit points in seven of his last eight games and is averaging 18 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.3 3PTM over his last three games. Not too shabby baby. The bright lights are shining down now on the 25-year-old and HC Ty Lue says Mann is ready to take the next step. I’m all-in baby!

Terrence Ross, SG/SF – Orlando Magic (27% rostered)

I think I have a thing for Terrence’s! Terrence Ross is the latest to make his way from health protocols and Ross didn’t miss a beat dropping 33 points, five rebounds, three steals and four 3PTM in his return to the lineup. The Magic are missing multiple starters so they can really use Ross’s scoring touch. This is a no-brainer if you’re in need of points and three-pointers.

Obi Toppin, SF/PF – New York Knicks (11% rostered)

We got to save Madison Square Garden for last as Obi Toppin is ready to put on a show this week for the New York faithful. The Knicks frontcourt is in shambles this week and the sophomore rose to the occasion Sunday dropping 19 points to go alongside six rebounds, six assists, one steal, and two blocks. Mitchell Robinson and Nerlens Noel are both out of the lineup so it’s eight overall pick’s time to shine. The key is always the minutes as Topping went from 27 minutes up to a whopping 45 on Sunday. The sophomore has now posted at least six rebounds in back-to-back games and is ready for a massive week in the big apple. I’ll take a bite please.
