This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
Months turn to weeks. Weeks turn to days. And now just four nights of NBA games remain before the postseason.
Congratulations for making it this far. And congratulations and a tip of the hat for staying active until the end of the season – fantasy leagues are better when everyone stays in it until the end.
On this last waiver wire pickups article of the season, I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that this week's waiver pool is deep. Three weeks ago, Bryn Forbes – the last name on this week's "other recommendations list" – might have qualified for a blurb. The bad news is, which could also be viewed as good news if you tilt your head just right, is that there are no singularly dominant options available. The waiver wire is loaded with difference-makers, but none of them are likely to single-handedly deliver a championship.
Now, the lean-your-head-just-so upside is that at least one of the options below is probably a good fit for your roster's needs. Furthermore, you don't need to worry about stopping your opponent from scooping up the basketball equivalent of what Derrick Henry was at the end of the last NFL season (an early-season scrub whose late-season explosion was so overpowering that he alone was able to almost single-handedly eliminate better overall rosters). Prioritize fit and team needs over all else, and one of these players below could help deliver a championship.
