Working the waiver wire is crucial to succeeding in fantasy basketball. With so many games, injuries and endless shifts in rotations throughout the season, we need to source stats from free agency to maximize our imaginary rosters.In this weekly series, we identify players available in more than 40 percent of ESPN leagues at each position. Some nominations are purely specialists capable of helping in one or two categories, while others deliver more diverse and important statistical offerings. Either way, we believe the names below -- ordered by ownership rate at each position -- can contribute positively to fantasy rosters.Point guardIsh Smith, Detroit Pistons (Owned in 33.7 percent of ESPN leagues): Coach Stan Van Gundy recently noted Reggie Jackson appears tentative when cutting and is still a few weeks away from returning. This means Smith, who is 12th in the league in drives per game, should continue to provide helpful results in steals and assists as the teams interim starting point guard.Sean Kilpatrick, Brooklyn Nets (28.5): On a team that ranks second in the league in pace, Kilpatricks busy offensive role as the key scoring weapon from the bench drives value, as he has scored in double figures in all but two games and has recorded at least one steal in all but three outings.Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs (19.0): Over the past four games, Parker has averaged 26.4 minutes, 14.3 points and 5.8 assists while shooting 59 percent from the field. With a 21.7 percent usage rate over this stretch, Parker is a worthy utility asset or even starting point guard for those thin at the position.Shooting guardWesley Matthews, Dallas Mavericks (49.3): Even as efficiency escapes his production pattern so far, we value the sheer volume of Matthews offensive opportunities. Over the past six games, for example, hes averaged 36.8 minutes, 1.7 steals and a whopping 8.2 3-point attempts. Matthews is shooting just 33.3 percent over this stretch, but this rare blend of opportunity beyond the arc and rich steal production reveals a helpful fantasy pattern in leagues of 12 or more teams at a shallow shooting guard position.Will Barton, Denver Nuggets (30.6): We understand managers had to move on from Barton given his lengthy injury absence, but now that hes nearing a return, its time to acquire Denvers top shooting guard while the market is still undervaluing his potential. Barton averaged 35.2 minutes over the first three games this season and produced efficient offensive results. We can expect a heavy workload for Barton upon his return, as hes among the teams best backcourt scoring options.Seth Curry, Dallas Mavericks (12.9): With J.J. Barea sidelined for over a month due to a significant calf injury, Curry earns a sizable uptick in minutes, touches and offensive upside. Barea is 10th in drive and touches per game, so there is a valuable void for usage left in his wake. Its encouraging to note that Curry has averaged 33.1 minutes, 4.3 assists and 5.5 3-point attempts over the past six games.James Ennis, Memphis Grizzlies (7.6): Having started 12 of 13 games, Ennis is averaging 30.4 minutes, a steal and three 3-point attempts per game as a key 3-and-D performer for the Grizzlies found in a sizable majority of ESPN leagues.Small forwardMichael Kidd-Gilchrist, Charlotte Hornets (44.2): Im admittedly partial to players who provide above-average defensive production, as steals and blocks prove so scarce and we can easily source points and rebounds in working the wire. MKG remains a key target for me in shallower formats, as hes widely available and averaging 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks. Some will balk at his 8.5 points per game, but the value Kidd-Gilchrist provides in such rare stats affords him unheralded value.Wilson Chandler, Denver Nuggets (40.0): Despite coming off the bench, Chandler has averaged 30 minutes and a rich usage rate of 25.5 over the past six games. Such steady opportunity has led to Chandler averaging 20 points, 8.7 boards and 1.3 3-pointers over this stretch. With such rich production, Chandler merits a far higher ownership rate for an up-tempo offense that ranks seventh in the league in pace.Josh Richardson, Miami Heat (12.8): With injuries to Goran Dragic and now Justise Winslow among the teams rotation over the past few weeks, Richardson has earned encouraging exposure to the tune of 31.3 minutes, 5.1 3-pointers and nearly a block and steal per game over the past seven games. Richardson might lose some minutes once the team is fully healthy, but his stellar rates suggest he could become a fixture on a team in need of his offensive upside.Power forwardMaurice Harkless, Portland Trail Blazers (30.7): As another 3-and-D asset who provides helpful stats beyond simply scoring, Harkless has recorded a block in all but four games this season and is enjoying an uptick on the glass of late.Terrence Jones, New Orleans Pelicans (17.3): The Pelicans are eighth in pace and Jones is playing nearly 30 minutes per night over the past two weeks. Jones has averaged 1.5 blocks and nearly a steal over this span, with helpful rebounding and scoring rates complementing an underrated fantasy profile.Trey Lyles, Utah Jazz (9.6): Over the past three games weve seen Lyles average 16.7 points and 28.5 minutes. Its a small sample, but we need to act quickly when a young stretch big man like Lyle assumes an uptick in usage and exposure. Lyles should see extended minutes and shots with Derrick Favors injured, adding to his impressive and ascendant fantasy stock.CenterClint Capela, Houston Rockets (52.3): Amid a breakout stretch, Capela has averaged 13.6 points and 10.4 boards to go with 2.4 blocks. As the key rim protector for the Rockets, Capela offers a high floor and coveted upside.Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia 76ers (52.5): Speaking of defensive upside, no player other than Noel has ever averaged 1.8 steals and 1.7 blocks through his first two seasons. Adding to his rare defensive acumen, only David Robinson posted a better defensive box plus-minus than Noel through two NBA seasons. While the logjam for minutes in the Philly frontcourt isnt ideal, Noels impending return and unique defensive prowess merit more attention.Cody Zeller, Charlotte Hornets (16.6): While hes dealing with a minor shoulder injury, Zeller is an interesting addition considering hes averaged nearly 26 minutes, 12.2 points and 1.2 blocks over the past five games -- all starts. Brett Favre Jersey .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Garrett Grayson Jersey . -- Aldon Smith believes he is on the path to being sober for good. . One game after a miserable showing in Oklahoma City, Gay tied a career high with 41 points and the Sacramento Kings cruised to a 114-97 victory at the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Mohamed Sanu Sr Jersey . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. Ito Smith Jersey . JOHNS, N.(Sports Network) - The top-seeded Chicago Blackhawks will try to put the finishing touches on a first-round win, as they host the Minnesota Wild in Thursdays Game 5 battle at United Center. The Blackhawks won the first two games of this best-of-seven Western Conference quarterfinal series before losing an overtime decision in Game 3 at Minnesota. However, the Presidents Trophy winners rebounded with a 3-0 victory in Game 4 to take a 3-1 lead and set up Thursdays potential series- clinching contest. Patrick Sharp scored twice and Corey Crawford made 25 saves to help the Blackhawks record Tuesdays victory at Xcel Energy Center. Crawford had three shutouts in the regular season for Chicago, which hasnt made it past the first round since winning the Stanley Cup in 2010. It was the second career playoff shutout for Crawford. "Our (penalty kill) definitely won us the game tonight," Crawford said. "We blocked a lot of shots and cleared pucks when we needed to. It was definitely a big effort and a good job by all of our guys on the kill." Bryan Bickell also lit the lamp for the Blackhawks, who were 0-for-2 on the power play but also killed off all six of Minnesotas opportunities on the man advantage. "It probably wasnt the greatest of nights. But Ill say this: If you know them the way that I do, youd be really excited to watch them play the next game," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. The eighth-seeded Wild are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008 and have a steep hill to climb if theyre going to win their first playoff series 2003. Minnesota may also have to try and mount a comeback with its third-string goaltender in net, as rookiie Darcy Kuemper replaced an injured Josh Harding during the Game 4 setback.dddddddddddd Harding was forced into a starting role in this series after No. 1 backstop Niklas Backstrom was injured in warmups prior to Game 1. Harding stopped five of six shots on Tuesday before leaving at the end of the first period with a lower-body injury. Kuemper turned aside 16-of-18 shots in relief. Backstrom could be well enough to get the start on Thursday. He wore pads as an emergency goaltender in Game 4 and moved to the bench in the third in case Kuemper suffered an injury as well. However, Yeo isnt saying much about tonights goaltending plans. "We like to keep the other team guessing," Yeo said, half-jokingly. "So were not only going to not tell them who our starting goalie is, we wont tell them who our backup goalie is. Really leave them in the dark." The Wild did get forward Jason Pominville back on the ice in Game 4 after sitting out the previous five games dating back to the regular season. Pominville registered three shots on net in over 12 minutes of action in his return to the ice. Although the Blackhawks and Minnesota North Stars faced off six times in the playoffs over a 10-year stretch from 1982-91, this is the first postseason encounter between Chicago and the Wild. The Blackhawks won two of three meetings against Minnesota during the season series and Chicago also gained a point in its only loss, a 3-2 shootout setback in St. Paul on Jan. 30. Chicago was 18-3-3 home record during the regular season, while Minnesota was just 12-11-1 on the road. If necessary, Game 6 of this series is scheduled for Saturday in Minnesota.
