This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
With March Madness tipping off this weekend, some hoop-heads may shift their focus away from fantasy basketball to their beloved (and not-yet-busted) brackets. Should that be the case for opposing teams in your league, the waiver wire would provide an excellent opportunity to get ahead of the game or gain some ground.
There have only been nine nights of games since the NBA All-Star break. For the sake of avoiding repetition, this week's article won't feature any of the players mentioned in my two most recent pieces.
Shouldn't Be Available in Most Leagues
Joe Ingles, Jazz (51% rostered)
Ingles poured in career highs of 34 points and eight treys, to go along with five boards, two assists and two steals across 33 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Wizards. Already extremely efficient in previous seasons, this year Ingles has taken his game to another level in that regard, sporting career-high shooting percentages from the field (54.0% FG), beyond the arc (49.0% 3PT), and the charity stripe (88.9% FT). Despite a slight reduction in playing time (26.8 MPG) compared to the last three campaigns, Ingles remains a steady source of counting stats, with per-game averages of 12.2 points, 4.3 dimes, 3.5 boards, 2.7 threes (career high), 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks through 37 appearances. He isn't quite as valuable when Mike Conley is in the lineup, but Ingles should still be rostered in most leagues.
Kyle Kuzma, Lakers (65% rostered)
Kuzma's rostership will likely skyrocket by Monday morning
