Week 13 is approaching the weekend and some big-time news has broken ahead of Week 14. Damian Lillard is set to miss a large chunk of time after undergoing abdominal surgery, and the Hawks have moved Cam Reddish to the Knicks ahead of the trade deadline. Those aren't the only tidbits that Fantasy managers should think about as the season's midpoint nears and we've got a list of other assets you should keep an eye on.

So who should you try to acquire and move ahead of Week 14? Here are five options to consider buying or selling:

Five to buy

Buy High

  • Tyler Herro This year's top Sixth Man of the Year candidate is still cooking. He's taking his production to a new level in 2022 thanks to Jimmy Butler's nagging ankle injury. Herro's tallied 23.3 points, 6.3 rebounds and 5.7 assists over his previous three games without Butler. He came within one rebound of his first career triple-double earlier this week. While Herro's sure to fall into the occasional rut, his availability could help him crack the top-15 among point guards in an extremely competitive field. 

Buy low

  • OG Anunoby: Anunoby's averaging a career-high 19.3 points, but he's flown under the radar as a Fantasy asset because he has missed so many games. The Raptors wing has contributed at a high level when available. Anunoby averages more Fantasy points per game than Harrison Barnes, Saddiq Bey and Gordon Hayward. Each member of that trio is a top-10 Fantasy small forward in points leagues ahead of Friday. He's tallied at least 22 points and made at least three shots from beyond the arc in four of his past seven games. 

Three to sell

Sell high

  • Kyle Kuzma: Kuzma's definitely benefited from the recent absences of Spencer Dinwiddie and Bradley Beal, but l believe he'll come down following the All-Star break. While the Wizards forward's January averages of 26.4 points and 11.9 rebounds have been impressive, Rui Hachimura and Thomas Bryant are back in the rotation and will steal some frontcourt minutes. If you can get a few consistent pieces during Kuzma's ascension, take advantage of the opportunity to solidify your roster.
  • Al Horford: Horford is neck and neck with Robert Williams in terms of season-long production, but the veteran has been horrendous since returning from health and safety protocols. The Celtics big man has averaged 7.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 4.3 assists per contest over his last nine games. He's shot 35.8 percent from the field and 22.9 percent from deep during that span. Horford's never made fewer field goals per game in his career. Fantasy managers should ship him off and get what they can ASAP.

Sell low

  • Damian Lillard: Lillard isn't a top-15 Fantasy point guard solely because of how many games he's missed, but it's time for Fantasy managers to move on from the Trail Blazers point guard. He's set to miss an extended period of time and Portland is four games back from the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The playoffs might be out of reach already, so there likely won't be a ton of pressure to get Lillard back on the court. Moving him for pieces that offer immediate assistance is probably the best option.
