Guards

Brandon Knight, Detroit Pistons

The No. 8 pick in the 2011 draft has made it back from a slew of serious maladies and has an opening with the injury-decimated Pistons. He's averaging 16 points, 4.3 three-pointers and five assists per game over the last four games. He's doing the damage in just under 25 minutes a night, and his efficiency rating is through the roof. Ride this wave while you can.

Mychal Mulder, Golden State Warriors

It's another week, and we have another obscure player from the Warriors making noise. The 25-year-old from Kentucky has averaged 15.5 points and four boards per game over the last two. He only has three NBA games under his belt, and he's a lottery ticket of a pickup. Cash in while you can with point guard Stephen Curry (hand) close to returning.

Denzel Valentine, Chicago Bulls

The fourth-year man drew the start for guard Zach LaVine (quadriceps) Monday night and dropped 17 points in 21 minutes. Valentine will likely play second fiddle to point guard Coby White in the box score, though, but the team wants to keep White in the second unit. Valentine has shown flashes like this before, but his health has always been shaky as well. He's worth a low-risk, low-expectations flyer.

 

Forwards

Royce O'Neale, Utah Jazz

The 26-year-old O'Neale has averaged 11.3 points and six rebounds per game over the last three tilts. It has taken a while for him to develop, and he's averaging career highs in most categories as he's pulling 29 minutes per game. His three-point shooting has gradually increased in each of his three seasons to a career-high 41.2 percent this season. He's a real asset in nine-category leagues because he contributes a little everywhere, but he doesn't stick out enough to where he might be sitting on a lot of waiver wires.

 

Centers

Trey Lyles, San Antonio Spurs

The former lottery pick has been leaned upon heavily with centers LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder) and Jakob Poeltl (knee) out the last two games. Lyles has played 38.5 minutes per game and averaged 20 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in the process. Poeltl is out for weeks, but Aldridge is day to day. Lyles should remain in the fold in the interim and must be picked up.
