Deep League Relevant: 15th Dec - 21st Dec

Welcome to the seventh (and on time) installment of deep league relevant. Injuries and players taking advantage of a new role are the focus of this week’s entry.

Chris Kaman

Owned in 17% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Chris worth adding?
The NBA just wouldn’t be the same without a Lopez on the long-term injury list, we’d just used to that Lopez being Brook. Robin has broken his right hand, which means Kaman is a must-add in deep leagues if he’s still available.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Owned in 13% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Michael worth adding?
MKG had a good start to the season and has just returned from a decent stint on the side lines. Having just won back his starting spot expect him to creep his way back into some form.

Norris Cole

Owned in 9% of Yahoo leagues.
3 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Norris worth adding?
No Bosh and McRoberts means Miami are going to play small ball with a 3 guard line-up, expect to see Cole get plenty of run and a few extra minutes now that Napier has been sent down to the D-league.

Jerryd Bayless

Owned in 2% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Jerryd worth adding?
Jerryd has put together a nice run of games. If you need some PG stats and Cole isn’t available then take a look at Jerryd.

Alex Len

Owned in 4% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Alex worth adding?
Alex has finally won the starting spot in Phoenix, but he’s still in a time-share ware with Plumlee, don’t expect too much from either until one of them gets injured, but Alex is worth a stash just to see how the situation is going to pan out.

Khris Middleton

Owned in 6% of Yahoo leagues.
4 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Khris worth adding?
Jabari’s injury means a whole lot of minutes available at the PF spot, which Khris is likely going to see while Jason Kidd has another re-shuffle of his rotation. If you didn’t add Khris last week and he’s still available, now’s the time to do it.

Festus Ezeli

Owned in 0% of Yahoo leagues.
2 games scheduled between Monday 15th December and Sunday 21st December.

Why is Festus worth adding?
Well, it was only a matter of time before Bogut got injured and Festus is next in line for the starting spot. If you’re desperate for blocks (his 0% ownership suggests not many people are) then take a look at Festus, just don’t expect him to do much else.

Still relevant

Players on previous week's add lists that should still be available on your waiver wire and are still relevant this week.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (4% owned), James Johnson (9% owned), Jason Thompson (8% owned), Tyler Zeller (25% owned), Rasual Butler (11% owned), Cory Joseph (5% owned).
