Waiver Wire Work: Gomes, Magloire and more

It's Tarence Kinsey's world, we're just living in it. Can he keep putting up 19.4 points, 2.0 steals and a 3-pointer per game? I think so. Producing in the NBA is not always about talent. It's about minutes and opportunity. And it's not like the kid doesn't have any talent. He did lead the South Carolina Gamecocks in scoring last season with averages of 15.8 point, 1.9 3s and 1.5 steals per game. Last week I said that Hakim Warrick would be the better option in Mike Miller's absence. Turns out, both are going to have value until Miller returns. And that's if he returns.

Ryan Gomes, SF, BOS- 15.0 percent owned

It's not surprising that Gomes posted his best numbers during the month of January. Helping fill in for the injured Paul Pierce, Gomes averaged 14.0 points and 6.0 rebounds on 50 percent shooting in 16 January contests. Once Pierce returned in February, Gomes' production dried up and he was released in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues. Well, with Pierce possibly shutting it down for the season, it's time to grab Gomes once again. I do like the upside of Gerald Green if Pierce is done, but Gomes is by far the more consistent of the two options. His 17-point, seven-rebounds, two-steal effort on Sunday is what we have come to expect out of Gomes with Pierce sidelined.
