The NBA trade deadline has come and gone and new players everywhere are getting opportunities to impress there new teams. That is opening up – and closing up – opportunities for a lot of guys. For Week 17, aka the All-Star Break. for the Fantasy Basketball season, it’s time to take a look at the top waiver wire adds and streaming options.


Fantasy Basketball Top Waiver Wire Adds

Marvin Bagley III, Washington Wizards (41% Yahoo!)

Patience. That’s what we need here. Bagley had missed four consecutive games before his return against the 76ers and he simply played poorly and the team went small ball against a Philadelphia team that also went small. We saw earlier in the year after Bagley was acquired and Daniel Gafford was out that he had back-to-back 20-point double-doubles. That's the upside he has when given extended run and we should have much expectation of the Wizards constantly playing small and/or using Richaun Holmes in an extended role. Bagley may take a few games to get back to full capacity so again, be patient and you WILL be rewarded.

Tre Mann, Charlotte Hornets (11% Yahoo!)

With LaMelo Ball’s absence continuing for Charlotte, Tre Mann is a great addition to your fantasy roster heading into the All-Star break. We’re unsure how much longer Ball will be out, but Mann started in his debut with the Hornets and was one point and an assist shy of a double-double. He had a 22% USG and played 27 minutes.

Keyonte George, Utah Jazz (24% Yahoo!)

George has seen his playing time spike lately as he’s played 25 or more minutes in three straight games and seven of his last 11 overall. George lost his starting job earlier in the year due to injury and then Collin Sexton and co. were playing so well, he never had a chance to regain the job. Well, things are changing once again and George has full command of this team as of late and it’s only a matter of time when he’s in the starting lineup again.

Simone Fontecchio, Detroit Pistons (17% Yahoo!)

It’s hard to expect to see what we did in Fontecchio’s debut again, but then again, he’s on a much worse team than he was on with more freedom than he had. He played off the bench, sure, but he still played 32 minutes, scored 20 points, and took 19 shots. He’s a guy who contributes in multiple facets, especially in three-point makes, and is a solid rebounder as well. Here’s another guy who looks to be a pillar for the Pistons' future and eventually moves into the starting lineup.

Kelly Olynyk, Toronto Raptors (29% Yahoo!)

There’s a case to be made here that Olynyk is approaching 30 minutes per night. Even if he doesn’t, his fantasy value was on full display in his debut. He played 22 minutes and had 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, four blocks and steals, and even hit a three. He played alongside Jakob Poeltl for one shift and played in place of him as well. Being able to play together will maximize Olynyk’s value, but his ability to stuff the stat sheet makes him a priority add if his role is going to continue to be what it was and possibly more.

Jonathan Isaac, Orlando Magic (6% Yahoo!)

Isaac is someone we should monitor with a little more intent. He played 25 minutes last time out, a season-high, and has now 18 or more minutes in five of his last six games. In each of those games, he’s been VERY productive as a rebounder and a shot blocker. He can score too, but he hasn’t needed to. If he’s extended beyond what he’s playing now, he could be a league-winning pickup.
