The Covid outbreaks in the NBA appear to be in the rearview mirror, so now it’s just old fashioned injuries and poor form creating waiver wire opportunities.

As Week 14 gets ready to tip-off, let’s look at some players who may be available to grab in your league.

Kelly Olynyk

Olynyk is set to return from his MCL injury, probably this week.

With Isaiah Stewart faltering and Jerami Grant still out, Olynyk can work into a decent role as he ramps back up. He is worth grabbing.

Brandon Clarke

Clarke started the last game over Steven Adams.

It may have just been due to Adams returning from Covid, but I won’t leave Clarke on the wire to figure out later that this is a permanent change.

Alec Burks

Kemba Walker continues to battle a knee issue, so Burks is logging high minutes as the team’s starting point guard.

Jalen Suggs

Suggs impressed as he returned from his thumb injury this week.

He still needs to get his minutes back up, but he is a nice, long-term investment.

Patrick Beverley

He is going to be on the list most weeks until his roster percentage rises to my liking.

Amir Coffey

Coffey will have plenty of ups and downs, but as a starter in Los Angeles, he is being given an opportunity without Paul George.

De’Andre Hunter

Back from injury, back starting, and Cam Reddish is now in New York.

Hunter can be frustrating, but he is worth the grab in most leagues to see if he can regain form.

Kessler Edwards, Cam Thomas

With Kevin Durant dealing with a knee injury, severity unknown, Edwards and Thomas have a big opportunity to get some strong minutes over any games Durant misses.

I would prioritise Edwards due to his well rounded game, but both can be grabbed as options.
