Jason Richardson's potentially season-ending knee surgery is bad news for the Sixers, but potentially good news for Dorell Wright.
Wright's minutes have been erratic, but he played 30 minutes Wednesday, finishing with a fantasy-friendly line of nine points (4-8 FG), a three, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks.
Keep in mind that in his last two games, Wright played six and 17 minutes, respectively. He needs to string together some solid lines before fully getting on the fantasy radar (owned in 31 percent of Yahoo leagues).
Nick Young started, played 40 minutes and didn't do much (nine points, six rebounds and three assists). He's still the better bet (35 percent owned) for fantasy production.
