Dion Waiters will draw another start Wednesday versus the Timberwolves, Alan Horton of WCCO 830 AM reports.
Waiter started his first game since Nov. 22 Tuesday, and will draw his second consecutive start Wednesday versus the Timberwolves. Waiters will look to take advantage of the starting opportunity while Andre Roberson is sidelined. He posted 14 points, three rebounds, one assist, and two triples in 43 minutes Tuesday.
Dion Waiters provided 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), three rebounds, and one assist in 43 minutes during the Oklahoma City Thunder 's 128-122 overtime win versus the Knicks on Tuesday.
Waiters entered the starting lineup with Andre Roberson set to miss at least three weeks due to a sprained knee. This was Waiters' third start of the season, and he played a surprisingly efficient game. He was already seeing 27 minutes per game, so Waiters seems likely to average at least 30 minutes per game while Roberson remains sidelined. However, expecting much outside of scoring is likely to end in disappointment for fantasy owners.
Dion Waiters will start at two-guard in Tuesday's game against the Knicks in New York, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
After Andre Roberson was given a recovery timetable of at least three weeks due to a right knee sprain, Waiters was the logical candidate to enter the starting five. In two nods this season, Waiters averaged 15.0 points (on 41 percent shooting), 3.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.5 assists, and 1.0 three-pointer in 30 minutes.
Dion Waiters had 13 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block in 35 minutes during the Oklahoma City Thunder 's 109-106 win over the Mavericks on Friday.
The 24-year-old guard is scoring 12.2 points to go with 1.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.4 blocks in 29 minutes per appearance over the last five match-ups. His scoring is up while everything else besides blocks and minutes are down in comparison to his season averages, and Waiters already offers very little outside of scoring.
Dion Waiters went for 20 points (8-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 28 minutes during the Oklahoma City Thunder 's 113-93 win versus the Timberwolves on Friday.
Waiters has scored 38 points on 27 shots over the past two Thunder wins. However, both were blowout wins, and Russell Westbrook combined to play 42 minutes during those two outings. As evidenced by Friday, Waiters doesn't provide much besides scoring. He also posts lackluster shooting percentages on most nights, so unless you're desperate for scoring in deeper leagues, Waiters makes for an inefficient fantasy option.
