Denver plays a heavy five-game schedule this week, while the Pistons and Thunder only play two games each. Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday are the quality days on an otherwise busy week that includes an 11-game Saturday. Our back-to-back schedule is surprisingly shallow, with two or less teams for each set except for a crowded Friday/Saturday set that sees 12 teams.

Jameer Nelson 3% ownership

He hasn't really been standard-league worthy this year, but a five-game schedule can be very advantageous especially in leagues with a smaller acquisition limit. His modest yet consistent output has him averaging 5.0 assists and 1.6 threes on 42% shooting in 20 minutes per contest over the last two weeks. The Nuggets play on a busy Saturday schedule, but even if you start him just four of those games he could still swing a matchup in the assists category. Every now and then Mudiay has such a bad game that Nelson takes over as well so don't let his modest averages fool you for this week at least.

Dion Waiters 19% ownership

Josh Richardson's injury timeline is being measured in weeks, not days, and he was playing just about 30 mpg before he went out. Waiters' an up and down scorer, but if you can handle the hit to your FG% he's going to give you some nice assists and steals with some threes. He's still shaking the rust off but he has played over 30 minutes in his last two games averaging 10.5 points with 1.0 threes on 27% shooting, adding 7 assists and 1.0 steals. The Heat play a moderate three-game schedule this week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, but if Waiters gets going he might be worth holding for a couple weeks until Richardson gets back.

C.J. Miles 24% ownership

He's had two hot games in a row and he might be getting it going for a bit. He's as streaky as they come, but he has nice periods of ownership here and there. In his last two games he's averaged 17.5 points with 4.5 threes on 54% shooting. He's adding 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in limited minutes. He's a risky add, but he can light it up for a week or so at a time and Indiana needs all the help they can get from their bench. The Pacers play four games this week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Zaza Pachulia 13% ownership

His productivity is slowly trending upwards and he is very consistent but he's still a matchup liability. He's averaging 23 minutes in his last six games, boasting 9.8 points on 63% shooting, with 5.7 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 0.7 blocks. He's also shooting 94% from the line in the last two weeks, compared to a still solid 83% on the year. The Warriors play four games this week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

J.J. Barea 22% ownership

He's been up and down in his three games back and on a minutes restriction but Barea's value should be well known by now. He's a good scoring point guard but will need a heavier workload going forward to be worth owning. He shares backup duties with Seth Curry to the oft-injured starter Deron Williams, and their health, as well as the Mavericks lottery pick will have more to do with Barea's place in the rotation than his own basketball skills. Still, he's worth a flier and the Maverick's play four games this week on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
