Week 12 NBA Waiver Wire: More Top Week 12 Fantasy Basketball Pickups

Dwight Howard, C, Philadelphia 76ers (36% rostered)

Joel Embiid (knee) will be sidelined for at least two more weeks. Insert his replacement, Howard. Coach Doc Rivers has relied on Embiid to carry much of the workload offensively. While Howard cannot produce Embiid’s numbers, his minute uptick will be worth putting in a waiver claim.

Kenyon Martin Jr., SF, Houston Rockets (39%)

The Houston Rockets have lost their last 18 games and the fire sale is officially underway. PJ Tucker has been traded to the Milwaukee Bucks. While John Wall and Victor Oladipo are still employed by the Rockets, they are already involved in trade rumors. The Rockets are building for the future, and they hope some of that future involved Kenyon Martin Jr. In just 12 career games, he’s averaging 7.7 points. Look for an increase in production for Martin, along with fellow Rockets youngster Kevin Porter Jr.

Jordan Poole, SG, Golden State Warriors (15% rostered)

Steph Curry (tailbone) will miss some time, and the Golden State Warriors are in need of a young spark. Former Michigan Wolverine Jordan Poole is on a 19ppg stretch since getting called up to the NBA.

Sleeper Week 13 NBA Waiver Wire Pickup

Kenrich Williams, SF/PF, Oklahoma City Thunder (3% rostered)

The counterpart to Darius Bazley, Kenrich Williams will see an uptick in minutes due to Bazley’s shoulder injury. The Oklahoma City Thunder are floundering and could look to periodically rest starters and look towards the draft. On a bad team, Williams can do a little bit of everything to keep the Thunder above water. Without Bazley, adding Williams could be a sleeper add.
