NBA Waiver Wire: Week 10 Look-Ahead

NBA Waiver Wire: Week 10 Look-Ahead

This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.

The injuries just keep on coming. Specifically, the Raptors' injuries. Sure, other teams are also getting hit, but their M.A.S.H. unit is starting to look like the early-season Pacers and Pelicans. Over the last 72 hours, The North lost Pascal Siakam (top-25 in 9-cat so far this season; 36.7 minutes per game), Norman Powell (top 85; 28.9 min/g), and Marc Gasol (top 120; 28.2 min/g).

But the injury bug hasn't just infested Canada. Over the last week, we also lost Luka Doncic (ankle), Blake Griffin (knee), Eric Bledsoe (leg), Gordon Hayward (foot), Deandre Ayton (ankle), and Devin Booker (arm). Some of those players appear on track to return this weekend – Griffin, Hayward, and Booker have the best outlooks – but it's been a rough week for the league.

Injuries are never good, but the current multitude does do a lot to improve this week's crop of waiver prospects. If you're looking for short-term production, this is one of the deepest pools we've had all season. Though there are fewer long-term adds, there are still many players available who could improve most lineups.

The players below are listed in the order I'd recommend adding them. 

As always, this article will focus on players available in at least 50 percent of leagues. 

Adds for All Leagues

Donte DiVincenzo, Bucks (28 percent rostered)

Next week's schedule: at Phi, at Atl, Orl

DiVincenzo is the biggest beneficiary of the Bledsoe injury, and he's an easy choice for the top add this week.
