With Wednesday being the busiest day at 10 games, most people's schedules are going to be wide open for streaming, with little to stop you from using all your acquisition this week, should you choose. Just be careful with your efficiency categories and let's take a look at who has been hot this short week post All-Star break.

Courtney Lee 30% ownership

Wednesday Friday Sunday

If Jeremy Lamb's early season success is any indication, the Hornets will allow Lee a good volume of shots and minutes. However in 21 minutes on Sunday in his first game for Charlotte, he was a complete non-factor. No one should be rushing to pick him up after that performance, but keep a close eye on him if he's still on your league wire. If he can settle into his role in Charlotte, there is no reason why he couldn't be the low-end, but efficient, source of threes and steals like he was in Memphis.

Bojan Bogdanovic 30% ownership

Tuesday Thursday Saturday

Bojangles is still just a points and threes guy, but with the looming possibility of a Joe Johnson buyout he could maintain some value until Hollis-Jefferson returns. He can string together a few great games, but he also can go cold real quick, making him a high risk/high reward situation.

Shelvin Mack 4% ownership

Tuesday Thursday Saturday

Surprised? I really wasn't expecting to write about Shelvin Mack this season, or ever really. However, in his career debut for the Utah Jazz he posted 16 points, 1 three, 6 assists, 3 rebounds and 1 block on 64% shooting and played more than Trey Burke and Raul Neto. Obviously, one game is a small sample size, but it’s as strong a start you could ask for from Mack.

Bismack Biyombo 9% ownership

Monday Wednesday Friday Sunday

No surprises here, just a reminder for a good blocks specialist while John Henson remains sidelined. Biyombo has 3 blocks in two games since the All-Star break.

Position battles

While the trade deadline was largely a flat line, there are still some position battles to be decided in the next couple weeks.

Miami Heat

Monday Wednesday Saturday Sunday

The Heat is facing a serious identity crisis, and perhaps the biggest news from the trade deadline was the recurring blood clot issue for Chris Bosh. As unfortunate as it is, there will have to be some fantasy implications if Bosh is limited in any way.

Amare Stoudemire 7% ownership
The injury plagued phenom can produce, but no coach in their right mind would allow him to average more than 20 minutes a game. He is generally an efficient big though, and has averaged 6 rebounds, 5 points and a block in the Heat's two games since returning from break.

Justice Winslow 16% ownership
The young Winslow would have more fantasy upside with a wider skillset, so don't expect much besides points and rebounds from him. In two games since the break, he has shown improvement averaging 13.5 points and 7.5 rebounds on 48% shooting. He's a small-froward, but the Heat is lacking in scoring with Bosh and Tyler Johnson sidelined.

Josh McRoberts 5% ownership
I dare say no one was happier than myself to see Josh McRoberts break out of his year-plus slump, but his following game is more indicative of what McBob has to offer these days, and sadly it wasn't much. If he could start averaging a decent amount of assists and hit a three per game more consistently he could be streaming worthy, but he is also a high injury risk.

Portland Trailblazers

Tuesday Thursday Saturday Sunday

Maurice Harkless 7% ownership
Mo started making some noise before the break and hasn't slowed down despite the return of Noah Vonleh. He is a versatile small forward with a good scoring punch for a streamer, and has averaged 14 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1 steal, 0.5 blocks and 1 three in Portland's two games since the break, and the 25 minutes in both makes for an intriguing flier.

Gerald Henderson 11% ownership
Henderson's 7 game double-digit scoring streak came to an end on Sunday, bit he has seen some improved production these last few weeks. He's mostly just a scoring option, but you can keep an eye on him to see if he can bounce back.

Phoenix Suns

Monday Thursday Saturday

Besides Tyson Chandler, none of these guys would be starters for even a decent team. They're essentially rolling out two third-string point-guards to run their offense, neither of which look attractive in 12-team at the moment. Consistency and matchups are going to be problems with these guys, but there is value to be had here. Somewhere.

Mirza Teletovic 33% ownership
Despite the opportunity of more minutes and usage, I wouldn't rely on Mirza for anything more than threes, points and some rebounds. He's got 6 threes over two games since the break on .48 FG%.

Jon Leuer 9% ownership
Leuer made his return with an exclamation mark in two games since the break, averaging a full line of 6.5 rebounds, 14.5 points, 1 three, 1 steal, and 1.5 blocks on .56 FG%. Better yet he did averaging just under 20 minutes so if he can keep this up he could put together a nice must-own kind of streak.

Kris Humphries 10% ownership
Humphries could push Jon Leur for minutes, but it’s not like the Suns brought him over as any kind of game-changer. He is a versatile power forward when healthy, but I would wait and see a few more games before considering him reliable.

Alex Len 28% ownership
If you're in need of a big, he has a chance to string together a strong finish to the season, but it’s still up in the air how consistently he will be in the rotation.

Chicago Bulls

Wednesday Friday Saturday

With Mirotic and Butler given a vague 2-3 week timetable, there will be some opportunities going around for the Bulls second unit.

E'Twuan Moore 9% ownership
He has been very up and down, but despite lackluster games he is still generally efficient and doesn't really hurt you. When he is having a good game he contributes points, threes and steals on good percentages, with some popcorn assists and rebounds to boot. If you can handle some quiet games for upside he could help you pad several categories down the stretch.

Bobby Portis 19% ownership
He may not be the Bobby Portis unleashed everyone wanted, but his fairly consistent production is worth a look. Should his three-point shot continue to fall consistently, he might hold some value while the Bulls return to full-health. He has some very intriguing lines since returning from break, averaging 8.3 rebounds, 12.7 points and 1.3 threes on .47 FG% in 24.3 minutes.

The usuals

These guys should be well known to any streamer by now this year. They are not quite worth owning, but can be very useful for either consistency or upside.

Ian Mahinmi 29% ownership

Monday Wednesday Friday Sunday

With the more widely owned Myles Turner (62% ownership) playing most of his minutes at power forward, Ian Mahinmi will continue to be a good defensive big to stream.

Steven Adams 11% ownership

Wednesday Thursday Saturday

Half man, half mustache continues to be a consistent option when a defensive big is needed, and he is still part of the Thunder's rotation every night.

Gary Harris 18% ownership

Tuesday Wednesday Friday

With Foye gone, he might be able to get more shots up, but I doubt there will be any major change here.

Allen Crabbe 18% ownership

Tuesday Wednesday Friday

Crabbe has been quiet since the break with Gerald Henderson has been playing well, but I'm not willing to write him off yet, and he still maintains his 1 three and 1 steal average.

Good luck streaming, everyone, and see you back next week!
