This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
As always, the players in this article must be rostered in less than two-thirds of CBS leagues. Players are listed in the order that I recommend adding them, assuming they are equally good fits for your team.
Adds For All Leagues
Kendrick Nunn, Heat (46% rostered)
We talked about Nunn in this space a few weeks ago. He rewarded my confidence in him by immediately posting three straight DNP-CDs. Thanks, buddy. But after those three DNPs, Avery Bradley (calf) returned to the sidelines with an injury likely to last at least the next two weeks. Though Bradley's injury was what got Nunn back in the rotation, his performance has kept him there and earned him increased minutes.
Over the last four games, Nunn is averaging 17.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 threes and 2.5 assists in a massive 34.3 minutes. As was the case when I last recommended Nunn, he could completely disappear (again) when the roster gets healthy. But Nunn has a proven track record of putting up high-value fantasy numbers when given the opportunity. I don't know how long this will last, but right now he's a high priority pickup.
Dwayne Bacon, Magic (7% rostered)
Bacon, a 6-6 small forward, appears to be the Magic's... starting point guard? It looks as though Cole Anthony (shoulder) and/or Michael Carter-Williams (foot) and/or Frank Mason (groin) are close to returning. However, until at least one of them comes back, Bacon and Terrence Ross – also a 6'6" small forward
