As we head into Week 11, we got some bad news on Paul George’s elbow

He will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks, but I would expect he isn’t back until February at the earliest, while reports say there is a chance he misses the season.

 That, along with COVID absences, there are plenty of waiver wire options to grab to help fill in on your fantasy team.

The Bench, Los Angeles Clippers 

With Paul George out for the next few weeks, Terance Mann, Luke Kennard, Nicolas Batum, Eric Bledsoe, Marcus Morris Sr., available in over 50% of Yahoo leagues, are guys that shouldn’t be sitting on the waiver wire. 

I would also throw in Isaiah Hartenstein as an option once he returns.

Naz Reid, Malik Beasley, Jaden McDaniels, Minnesota Timberwolves 

These guys will get huge bumps with Karl-Anthony Towns, Jarred Vanderbilt, Anthony Edwards, D’Angelo Russell, and Patrick Beverley all out in COVID protocols. They shouldn’t sit on waiver wires for as long as those players are on the sidelines.

Ömer Yurtseven, Miami Heat 

With Bam Adebayo and Dewayne Dedmon out, Yurtseven is likely to be a starter. He can block shots and grab boards and minutes will be up for the next few weeks.

Gabe Vincent is also a good option as Kyle Lowry will likely miss the week due to COVID. Vincent could have his value extended as it looks like Jimmy Butler could be returning soon.

Talen Horton-Tucker, LA Lakers  

He has been pretty poor, but with Anthony Davis out, he looks like he will get some more opportunities and his inefficiency can’t be like this forever.

It looks like Dwight Howard will be the starting centre for a while in Los Angeles and he can get some decent fantasy value moving forward with Davis sidelined.

Chimezie Metu, Sacramento Kings

His value could change depending on what Alvin Gentry does with Terence Davis and Marvin Bagley III, but I think Metu has played well enough to take a chance on.

Lonnie Walker IV, San Antonio Spurs 

Walker is scoring well of late and the Spurs have a favourable schedule for week 11, so Walker’s scoring prowess may give enough value to be added.
