This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
With Thanksgiving in the rear view, the NBA returns to normal in Week 7. Most teams play three games, some play four, and a handful play only twice. Wednesday and Friday are busy, but no busier than normal for a Wednesday or Friday. After a few oddball weeks, the main strategies for Week 7 should be "use whatever strategies you usually use", which is a nice change of pace.
The best waiver adds this week are familiar names – players who were featured and picked up earlier in the season, only to get dropped due to slumps, injuries, or both. Many of these players are likely to have long-term value, and could stick in your rosters through the end of the season. Again, this is a nice change from last week, when few names were all that exciting.
The three teams that play only twice in Week 7: the Nuggets, Thunder and Kings. If possible, players on those teams should be avoided. However, despite the schedule concerns, two Kings are listed below, and both are still very strong waiver prospects because both are players who are likely to maintain value throughout the rest of the season.
The players below are listed in the order I'd recommend adding them.
As always, this article will focus on players available in at least 50 percent of leagues. That said, here are some good players who might still be available in your league, and are worth checking for:
