NBA Waiver Wire: Best Adds for Week 4

NBA Waiver Wire: Best Adds for Week 4

This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.

Surprisingly – and fortunately – the waiver wire was barely impacted by injuries over the first three weeks. That changed this week.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary this week, Tyrese Haliburton, doesn't technically qualify for this article as he's available in just less than half of leagues. We focused on Haliburton last week, and his value has increased even further now that De'Aaron Fox is dealing with a hamstring injury. 

Even if you missed out on Haliburton, there are a number of guys available who are seeing an injury-related boost in value. 

The players below are listed in the order I'd recommend adding them. 

This article will focus on players available in at least 50 percent of leagues. With that said, especially this early in the season, there are a lot of very valuable players who are widely available but miss that cut-off. I won't go into depth on those guys, but I'll include them below in the appropriate order.

Some under-rostered names who might be available in your league:

Cole Anthony, Magic (41% rostered)

Everyone was enjoying Markelle Fultz finally achieving some of the promise that led to his pre-draft praise, but his season came to an unfortunate end Wednesday when he tore his ACL.
