NBA Waiver Wire: Top Adds for Week 14

NBA Waiver Wire: Top Adds for Week 14

This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.

CBS Fantasy community, I have good news and bad news. The good news is two-fold. First, there was a good amount of movement over the past week or so, and there are players experiencing surging values all over the league. Second, you guys are pretty good at this waiver wire thing even without my help. Which leads to the bad news: you guys have already snapped up most of this week's biggest winners. While players like Michael Porter Jr. (67 percent rostered) and Norman Powell (69 percent rostered) are still available on some other host platforms and would be top adds here if they still qualified, you all beat me to the punch.

But while some of the biggest prizes may have already been taken, there are still a bunch of very good pickups available. Two trades and some injuries have opened up meaningful opportunities, and, of course, we have the typical ebbs and flows of hot streaks.

Managers should take note of the heavy, imbalanced schedule in Week 14. There are a lot of games, which hurts the Bucks and Hornets, who only play twice. Twenty teams have four games. Then, the day-to-day distribution is all over the place: 14-1-12-3-11-5-8. That distribution is also back for the Bucks and Hornets, who only play on Monday's 14-game slate and Friday's 11-game slate. The imbalance is helpful for Mavericks, who are the only team to play on Tuesday's one-game slate and Thursday's three-game slate. 

As always, the players in this article
