With a month left before the end of the NBA regular season, fantasy leagues are entering the final stage. The playoffs are either on the horizon or in full swing. In situations where the remaining teams are fiercely competitive, managers who make the most of the rejection wiring can tip the scales in their favor.

As with last week’s column, I’ve divided the suggested picks into two categories: hard-to-reach players worth double-checking, and wide-reach players who can be especially valuable in the deep leagues. .

As usual, I’ve included a list of recent recommendations at the end of the article. Without further ado, here are seven players worth adding in the final month of the season.


Monte Morris, Washington Wizards (45% of participants)

Morris had just returned from a six-game absence with a lower back injury, and the percentage of players on Morris’ lineup plummeted while he was on the sidelines. Also, he broke away from the pine tree behind Delon Wright in his first game back, so fantasy managers kept dropping Morris (-1% on the last day) despite him rejoining the rotation.

While Morris has struggled with the field since his loss to the Hawks on Wednesday, he posted an encouraging statistic considering he only played 16 minutes, scoring five points, five dimes and four boards. Throughout the season, Wright has consistently contributed off the bench. But over time, Morris is likely to regain his starting position – and, more importantly, play most of the minutes – as point guard for the Wizards.

Although his scoring (10.3 points) and minutes (27.9 mpg) are down compared to last season, Morris is averaging 5.3 assists and 3.4 rebounds while maintaining an impressive shooting percentage and leading the the entire NBA in terms of assists to assists. only 1.0 turnover per game.

If someone in your league let go of Morris, add him while you can.

Xavier Tillman, Memphis Grizzlies (41% of participants)

Tillman’s percentage of participation in the lineup is growing rapidly (+16% on the last day). While you are reading this sentence, someone somewhere is adding it. Tillman was already an obvious pickup after it was revealed that Brandon Clark (Achilles) will miss the rest of the season. Then on Thursday it was announced that Stephen Adams (knee) will be ruled out for at least another four weeks. With averages of 10.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 29.3 minutes in his last eight games, Tillman should be added across all formats.

Moritz Wagner, Orlando Magic (31% of participants)

Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) missed three competitions in a row and Wagner has stepped up in his absence, as he did earlier this season. Over the last four games, Wagner averaged 14.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals, 1.3 assists and a 1.0 treble in 23.2 minutes. As long as Carter is healthy, Wagner is worth watching in most leagues.


TJ McConnell, Indiana Pacers (16% of participants)

The Pacers have been in a slew of high-scoring games lately and are still looking for the final spots to play. Although the club is heavily dependent on Tyrese HalliburtonMcConnell also had a hand in Indiana’s success. In the last six games, the ball carrier had 8.0 points, 5.3 dimes, 3.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 20.7 minutes. Those in the deeper leagues who need passing and hitting should consider adding McConnell to the stretch.

Isaiah Leavers, Detroit Pistons (6% of participants)

Detroit may close Boyan Bogdanovich (Achilles), and Leavers could be the main beneficiary in terms of fantasy. Over the last three games, Leavers averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 triples, 1.7 assists and 0.7 steals in 35.7 minutes. If Bogdanovich is not removed from the rotation, then the fantastic value of Leavers will be short-lived. However, if the veteran has played his last game of the season, the Livers deserve some serious attention.

Jordan Nwora, Indiana Pacers (5% of participants)

Nvora scored in double figures in six consecutive games, averaging 14.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 1.7 triples and 0.8 steals in 23.5 minutes. A good bet is that he will continue to fill it off the bench for the Pacers, who are gaining momentum on offense. Generally not known for his contributions outside of the scoring department, Nvora has shown an ability to compete in multiple categories of late and could be a worthy addition in the deep leagues.

Corey Joseph, Detroit Pistons (4% of participants)

Joseph wasn’t a suitable fantasy option this season – until now. In his last three games, the veteran point guard has averaged 14.0 points, 4.3 dimes, 3.7 boards, 1.3 treys and 1.3 steals in 29.0 minutes. While the Pistons will likely continue to focus more on the younger players in the roster, a plethora of injuries combined with their shallow roster makes Joseph a viable option in deeper formats. If he continues to play about 30 minutes a night during the last month of the season, Joseph should add him to a lot of formats.
