Antonio Daniels, PG (WAS): Antonio Daniels has been out for a few weeks nursing a knee injury but returned on Wednesday. With Gilbert Arenas down, the Washington Wizards are desperate for help at the point guard position. Daniels is going to continue to see extensive minutes (35:21 in first game back) while Arenas is out and is a good source for points, assists and steals. He'll also throw in 3.6 rebounds per game for you.

Francisco Garcia, G (SAC): While Ron Artest spends the next 3-4 weeks lobbying for a trade to the New York Knicks and nursing an elbow injury, Francisco Garcia will be starting in his place. In eight starts prior to Wednesday, Garcia averaged 18.5 points, 1.1 threes, and 1.4 steals. On Wednesday, his line looked like this: 22 PTS, 7 REB, 3 STL, 2 AST, 2 BLK. If someone hasn't picked him up, get him.

Louis Williams, G (PHI): Life with Louis Williams might be a good one as the Philadelphia 76ers are rumored to move point guard Andre Miller. The Sixers already dealt Ashton Kutcher's twin, Kyle Korver, earlier in the week, which also opened up some time for Williams. Williams is more of a scorer but will likely average close to five assists per game if he steps into the starting lineup. He's a decent source for threes as well.

Sell:

Nene, F (DEN): Whether you are looking for a source of points or rebounds, Nene is a marginal option in both categories. He averages less than 20 minutes per game, doesn't block shots and gives you roughly six points and six boards per game. Unless Kenyon Martin or Marcus Camby are injured seriously, Nene isn't worth picking up.

Beno Udrih, PG (SAC): Beno Udrih has been a valuable play while Mike Bibby spends time on the sidelines, but his value may be nearing the end of its short term. Bibby practiced fully on Monday is on pace to return January 16th. As a backup, Udrih is not fantasy worthy.

Ronnie Brewer, G (UTA): The Utah Jazz recently dealt for Kyle Korver, which likely means that Ronnie Brewer will have to share some of his minutes. It's unclear what the time-split is right now, but Brewer's play has already been in decline. He's been a great source for steals early in the season but his average - for steals and points - has declined in each successive month. He averaged 13.4 PPG and 2.50 SPG in November, which dipped to 11.6 PPG and 1.56 SPG in December.
