We’re almost a quarter of the way into the NBA regular season. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s a good time to be aware of how your league is waiving rights, just in case other managers aren’t fully focused on fantasy basketball for the next week or so. Numerous high impact players are still available in over 50 percent of the leagues. So here are six players to consider adding a headline for Week 6.

Ayo Dosunmu, Chicago Bulls (47 percent of participants)

Dosunmu endured a cold streak, hitting single digits in his last three games. However, there is no guarantee that Lonzo Ball (knee) will play this season and Dosunmu has already established himself as a versatile player. With averages of 11.1 points (48.5% FG, 33.3% 3-pointers, 92.3% FG), 3.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.3 triples and 0.9 steals per 30.1 minutes, he seems to be tied to the starting role and has a lot of playing time despite a recent record. drought.

His percentage on the roster has dropped significantly (-9% on the last day), so double-check your rejection telegram and dig him out if another manager has lost patience with a budding sophomore quarterback.

Derrick White, Boston Celtics (44% of participants)

Although the often wounded guard Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) was upgraded to probable ahead of Friday’s game against the Pelicans and is already dealing with injury issues. During Brogdon’s recent absence due to injury, White has stepped up considerably, scoring in double figures in four consecutive matches as well as contributing in several categories.

Like Dosunmu, White has proven his ability to fill the stats chart and boasts similar averages of 9.4 points (44.0% FG, 40.7% 3PT, 88.5% FT), 3.5 dimes, 3.3 board, 1.5 triplets, 0.9 blocks and 0.7 steals in 25.9 minutes. It will be difficult to keep him out of the game – especially if he continues to shoot from behind the arc with such an impressive lead – even if Boston’s backcourt gets healthier as the campaign progresses.

Larry Nance Jr., New Orleans Pelicans (40% of participants)

Zion Williamson (knee) has already missed his fair share of games this season, but even when he plays, Nance finds a way to remain a factor. He flew under the radar despite averages of 9.9 points (66.7% FG, 45.5% 3PT, 77.8% FT), 5.8 boards, 2.3 dimes, 0.7 steals, 0.6 block shot and 0.4 triples in 23.4 minutes. Even if he doesn’t see a noticeable increase in minutes, Nance is worthy of attention in most leagues, especially for those who already have Williamson on the roster.

Kevon Looney, Golden State Warriors (24% of participants)

Looney is not a flashy addition by any stretch of the imagination and is perhaps best reserved for the deeper leagues. However, he was a reliable source of rebounds (6.9 rebounds) and assists (3.1 assists) while maintaining a sky-high field goal percentage (62.9% from the field). The dimes and hit percentage represent career highs, plus Looney is also averaging a career high in minutes (23.8 mpg).

It doesn’t look like any of the young Golden State big men have ousted Looney this season. As such, it’s worth looking into for those who need center depth, especially if you’re already on the list. Draymond Green.

Gabe Vincent, Miami Heat (15% members)

Vincent hit double figures in seven straight matches. Moreover, Miami will be without Tyler Herro (ankle) for the team’s upcoming trip. After averaging 12.8 points, 2.9 boards, 2.9 dimes, 2.3 trebles and 1.3 steals in 30.8 minutes in eight November games, Vincent also has a secret long-term upside from the veteran days. Jimmy Butler as well as Kyle Lowry missed a decent amount of games over the past few years. For those listing Herro, Butler, or Lowry, it might make sense to add Vincent, even if it’s just for insurance purposes.

Denis Avdia, Washington Wizards (13% of participants)

Avdija has been in tears in his last four games, averaging 14.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.0 triples, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks in 32.5 minutes. Bradley Beal returned to the rotation after his recent absence due to COVID, but there is a real chance that he will (finally) be traded at some point this season. If you can afford to hide a player with an advantage, Obadiah is worth a look thanks to his versatile skill set and improved roll.

Even if Bill not it wouldn’t be all that surprising if the Wizards decided to put a decent amount of offense through the young striker given his impressive playing ability.

Recent references: Lonnie Walker, Isaiah Jackson, Cameron Payne, Trey Murphy III, Jevon Carter, Onyeka Okongwu, Bruce Brown, Norman Powell, Malik Monk, Patrick Williams, Tari Eason, Jalen Duren, Immanuel Quickly, Kenyon Martin Jr.
