Fantasy Basketball: Life After Manu Ginobli
James Anderson - Spurs -- Former first round pick will assume Ginoblis starting spot for up to 6 weeks. Gary Neal is still rehabbing in the D-league so Anderson should be the direct beneficiary of Ginoblis injury. Anderson's scoring is limited but his ancillary stats may warrant a look.
Alonzo Gee - Cavs -- Gee is an attractive option simply because he's been averaging 29 minutes of run per game while averaging double digits in scoring. I would not be surpised if Gee overtook Omri Casspi in the starting lineup in the very near future.
Damion James -- Nets -- James has not been a statistical juggarnaut so far this year but his play has been enough to earn a starting job for New Jersey. With increased minutes at small foraward (SG eligible), he may be worth a look off the waiver wire.
Sundiata Gaines -- Nets -- Another deep sleeper, gaines has been quietly solid so far starting at shooting guard for the Nets. Gaines has been averaging close to double digits a night but he's chipped in with assists and steals as well. If he's there and you have space, I'd pick him up.
Josh Howard -- Jazz -- Remember him? Well he's fantasy revelant again after landing a rotational role with the Utah Jazz. Always a scoring threat, Howard has played quite well coming off the bench to spell a streaky Gordon Hayward. His play should warrant more minutes so he's a very solid add.
