Week 4 Fantasy Basketball Waiver Wire

*Must add is available – De’Anthony Melton, Mike Conley, and Bol Bol

Precious Achiuwa, C – Toronto Raptors (43% rostered)

Raptors All-Star Pascal Siakam is out indefinitely with a groin injury and will miss at least two weeks which opens up the door for third-year pro, Precious Achiuwa. Achiuwa has now recorded three-straight games with double-digit points averaging 12.3 points to go along with 5.7 rebounds on 48% shooting.  In his two games going over 30 minutes this season, Achiuwa posted games of 10 points with 22 rebounds as well as 18-point and 11-rebound performances. That is special stuff folks! His minutes will be on the rise for the immediate future and is a must-add! The North’s frontcourt is well protected baby!

*Chris Boucher, PF/C – Toronto Raptors – Also must add if available

Marcus Morris Sr., PF/C – Los Angeles Clippers (54% rostered)

The Clippers have some solid pieces but certainly lack some scoring depth and especially lack scoring depth when Kawhi Leonard is out of the lineup which is more common these days. Morris has been excellent this season scoring double-digit points in every game but one including two 20-point performances over his last five. The veteran has posted double-digit points in five-straight games now, has recorded at least eight rebounds during three of his past four games, and has 7 three-pointers, 6 assists and 3 steals over his last two. Those are great numbers across the board so make sure Morris Sr. is not on your waiver wire!

Isaiah Hartenstein, C – New York Knicks (58% rostered)

Things are always bigger in the Big Apple! The Knicks 7-footer has finally found a home for himself with the Knicks being his 5th team in four seasons. The German center is enjoying life with the Knicks’ depleted frontcourt and is finally getting a shot and is not disappointing. Hartenstein is now averaging 12 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over his last two games while chipping in with 9 points. In his first start, he posted a solid line of 10/14/1 and is expected to get an increase in minutes with Mitchell Robinson out of the lineup.  The Knicks have a four-game week making Hartenstein a great play.

Max Strus, SG/SF – Miami Heat (43% rostered)

If your team is in need of scoring and three-pointers, then Max Strus is your guy! Strus is in the top 15 in 3PTM on the season and is averaging 17 points and 3.0 3PTM over his last three games including double-digit scoring in six straight games. Strus is also chipping in with rebounds averaging 5.0 in five of his past six games including 1.0 steals during that span. Max Strus is bringing the Heat in Miami baby. He is a great roster addition to complement your lineup and is a star when Jimmy Butler takes his rest days.

Larry Nance Jr., PF/C – New Orleans Pelicans (32% rostered)

Larry Nance is getting quite the run in New Orleans. The veteran Power Forward/Center came back to life a bit on Saturday, but his defensive contributions make him a great add to your fantasy basketball teams! Prior to Saturday’s game, Nance was fresh off three straight games with at least eight rebounds and 11 points and has at least three steals in two of his past three games. Special stuff baby! The minutes have been key as the Pelicans have been going smaller playing Nance over Jonas Valanciunas at times. Zion Williamson always seems to be battling injuries, making Nance a great add.
