This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
This is fun. The waiver wire in Week 13 is loaded. No caveats. There are a lot of high-value players worth adding. End sentence. Send tweet.
The pool is deep. Tim Hardaway Jr., listed halfway through the "other recommendations" pool at the bottom, is a solid add for many shallow leagues and almost all standard leagues.
With so much talent available, give your current roster a good hard look – should you be dropping more than one of those guys? As an example, I'd let go of OG Anunoby (64 percent rostered) and Danny Green (50 percent rostered) for most of the players listed up to and including Hardaway.
Schedule-wise, it's a light week. Only nine teams have four games, the Celtics, Bulls, Cavaliers, Pacers, Timberwolves, Thunder, Magic, 76ers and Trail Blazers. Whenever you have a light week, there is less harm in playing a guy with just two games – this week, that means a Hornet, Grizzly, or Wizard.
An interesting nuance this week, there are only two games on Sunday. The Pacers are the only team with a four-game week and a Sunday game. The other three teams that play Sunday all have three games this week, and none of them play Monday or Tuesday. If you're in a daily lineups league with a strict acquisition limit, it makes sense to pick up someone on either the Nuggets, Heat, or Spurs on Wednesday. That approach will help you get the most games in your lineup this week.
