Listen to internet radio with RotoinfoXcomX on Blog Talk RadioRotoInfo.com Basketball Breakdown Show is hosted by the Fantasy Nomad Michael Pichan (@FantasyNomad) & Hecman (@Hecmanhoops)of Hecmanhoops.comShow Topics:Return of John Wall and coming soon Danny Granger, DRose, and Glen DavisKings back court rotationInjury news including: Ibaka, Manu, Lance Stephenson, and VarejaoWhat to do with some players who have been disappointing including Lowry and IlyasovaAdd/Drop recommendationsThe face of Washington Wizards franchise finally returned from a left knee injury.  John Wall scored 14 points off the bench for the Wizards on Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks in just under 21 minutes.  The thing I like most is that he took 5 free throw attempts which means he was not afraid to attack the basket, which is his strongest skill set.  Let's not forget who Wall is replacing in D.C., A.J. Price, Shaun Livingston, Garrett Temple, Jannero Pargo and Shelvin Mack.  This Wizards team is about to get a HUGE boost in tempo and points scored and everyone around Wall will see an increase in productivity.  Sure Bradley Beal and Jordan Crawford may not get as many shot attempts, but they should get better looks and shoot at higher percentages.  Martell Webster on the back door cuts will be getting the easiest layups he will ever attempt and Nene, Emeka and Seraphin will be standing alone under the basket for the easy dunk, as teams cover Wall driving the lane.  The Los Angeles Lakers had to play a couple of games without Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard recently and instead of guys like Antawn Jamison and Robert Sacre stepping up, it was Earl Clark (9% owned Yahoo) who was stealing the show.  Clark was just a rebound away from a third straight double double Sunday night and has scored 45 points over the Lakers last 3 games.  As long as Gasol and/or Howard are out of the lineup, Clark is a nice play.The Toronto Raptors are often forgotten about in NBA conversations and I regret not talking about Amir Johnson (36%) up until this point of the season.  His numbers don't jump out at you but he has taken full advantage of his playing time in 2013.  In 6 games he is averaging 15 points and 8.5 rebounds a night while adding 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks.  He is also shooting over 60% during his last 19 contests.  Obviously once Andrea Bargnani and Jonas Valanciunas return from injuries the minutes will but lost as will the necessary fantasy production, but who the hell knows when that will happen.  Ride it out and take advantage.  "Big Baby" Glen Davis is questionable for tongiht's action which pretty much mean every Magic forward/center besides Nikola "Double Double" Vucevic is irrelevant again.As Spurs fans and fantasy owners have come to painfully understand, Manu Ginobili will miss the next 2 weeks of NBA action with a Grade 1 Hamstring injury.  My guess is that he barely plays before the All-Star break, but that's just my guess.  Guys like Kawhi Leonard(49%), Danny Green (48%) and Gary Neal (6%)will see an increase in minutes as well as production.Points to AddGordon Hayward - SG, SF Jazz (65%)Dion Waiters - SG Cavaliers (63%)Bradley Beal - SG Wizards (61%)Isaiah Thomas - PG Kings (58%)Vince Carter - SG Mavericks (53%)Ramon Sessions - PG SG Bobcats (52%)Amir Johnson - PF, C Raptors (36%)Andray Blatche - PF, C Nets (31%)Ben Gordon - SG Bobcats (29%)Alonzo Gee - SG, SF Cavaliers (27%)Derrick Williams - SF, PF Timberwolves (21%)Carlos Delfino - SG, SF Rockets (19%)John Henson - PF Bucks (7%)Rebounds to AddShawn Marion - SF, PF Mavericks (62%)Tristan Thompson - PF, C Cavaliers (57%)Jason Thompson - PF, C Kings (53%)Spencer Hawes - PF, C 76ers (49%)Amir Johnson - PF, C Raptors (36%)Ed Davis - PF, C Raptors (31%)Tiago Splitter - PF, C Spurs (20%)Tyler Zeller - PF, C Cavaliers (12%)Taj Gibson - PF Bulls (9%)John Henson - PF Bucks (7%)3pts to AddBradley Beal - SG Wizards (61%)Vince Carter - SG Mavericks (53%)Kyle Korver - SG, SF Hawks (49%)Matt Barnes - SF Clippers (49%)Mike Dunleavy - SG, SF Bucks (40%)Randy Foye - PG, SG Jazz (36%)Alexey Shved - PG, SG Timberwolves (30%)Carlos Delfino - SG, SF Rockets (19%)Alan Anderson - SG, SF Raptors (13%)Assists to AddIsaiah Thomas - PG Kings (58%)Jarrett Jack - PG, SG Warriors (51%)Andre Miller - PG, SG Nuggets (49%)Luke Ridnour - PG, SG Timberwolves (46%)Alexey Shved - PG, SG Timberwolves (30%)
