Lavoy Allen. New starting C in Philly, 2nd year player good for some blks. And Bynum's prognosis isn't going to be good. Why? I don't see how if your knees are "different" than when they were before you went bowling, how your timetable could be better. In fact, I smell surgery.
My team:
G: Wall, George Hill, Knight, Lou Williams, Kobe, Farmar
F: Turner, Carroll, TJones, Mike Scott, Alphabet
C: Anthony Davis, Valanciunas, Glen Davis

Markieff Morris - he is starting on the Suns lineup but don't like the idea on Scola on the bench.
Andrew Bogut - targeting December 1 to return. We know what he can produce if he is healthy.
Aaron Brooks - if you need pts and 3's and he is averaging 30mins+ in the last 2 or 3 games.

First and foremost, can we have these trade questions deleted from threads like this and repeat offenders warned.

With that said, there are quite a few intriguing prospects hanging around most waiver wires at the moment. While many of these guys will need consistent playing time to have a lasting impact, all of them are guys you should have your eye on this week if they can continue to produce:

Jeffrey Taylor - team's a mess, playing time is there for those who earn it
Martell Webster - same spiel as Taylor
Meyers Leonard - Aldridge is having back problems and Hickson has done nothing to solidify his job
Jamaal Tinsley - if Moe Williams' injury woes keep him out, Tinsley has proved more than capable
Antawn Jamison - looking mighty fine in the new Lakers system
PJ Tucker - this guy hustles like nobodies business and coaches tend to give playing time to these types (mini Kenneth Farried)
Tyler Zeller - Tristan Thompson has not looked like a 4th pick so far and Zeller could easily push him for minutes
Devin Harris - has played well over the past week and has proven in the past to be a useful fantasy commodity

Zeller is worth a look in deeper leagues. 26 mins over the past few games. Got a season high 30 mins, putting up 13/9. Beno Udrih may be worth a look (deep lgs) if Jennings misses time.

Yea I don't understand the hate Hickson is getting from various people. He's putting up a double-double with solid fg%. You can do a lot worse in terms of a Big at this point. Especially with Aldridge maybe having some issues, Leonard is solid but he gets into foul trouble a lot and it's gonna take him a year or so before he becomes good, and I do think he'll be really good maybe next year.

Thoughts on Terrence Ross in deep leagues? Fields is still down and McGuire isn't that good.

I don't think Markieff counts anymore since we covered that last week.

1) Tinsley has been pretty solid so far in place of Mo Will and I think he can be decent considering Mo Will's injury history.
2) Billups looks like he'll be back soon just like Rubio (fingers crossed for anyone who doesn't have them yet) but I'm still leery about his FG%.
3) Ross surprised me with the amount of minutes he was handed & the number of shots he took/made.

Out of those 3, I like Billups the most considering he was still giving around 4th round value last year before he went down.
TEAM A: 12 team, 9-cat roto league on Yahoo! (8th pick overall)

G: J. Wall, J. Holiday, I. Thomas, Jordan Crawford
F: E. Ilyasova, L. James, W. Chandler, C. Frye, C. Brewer
C: S. Hawes, D. Favors, A. Davis, M. Gasol
