Cold Streaks: January 24-February 6

  1. Brandon Jennings (5.2 points, 4 assists, 25.6% FG%): Although he was recently reinserted into the starting line up, Jennings has struggled mightily since returning from a foot injury. Fantasy owners will have to be patient with the young point guard until he gets back up to speed.
  2. Wilson Chandler (10 points, 1.5 three-pointers, 31.3% FG%): Chandler is having a career year, but a recent calf injury has slowed him down. As with Jennings, fantasy owners will need to give Chandler a few games to shake the rust off. He should continue to be a fantasy stud in the Knicks' high-octane offense.
  3. Nick Young (20 points, 1.1 three-pointers, 37.6% FG%): Young is still pouring in points, but he's killing field goal percentages across many fantasy leagues while doing it. Nick is just a career 43.8% shooter, so fantasy teams that can't handle his poor shooting should look to deal him.
  4. Chris Bosh (14.3 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block, 61.9% FT%): Bosh's numbers aren't terrible, but they're down from his season averages over the last two weeks. His rebounding numbers are starting to slip again, but the biggest hit to his value has been his poor free throw shooting. A recent ankle injury may be to blame for the lack of production, so look for Bosh's numbers to improve as he gets closer to 100%.
  5. Tim Duncan (11.7 points, 6.6 rebounds, 44.2% FG%, 60.9% FT%): Duncan's production is down across the board. It didn't help that he played just 13 minutes last night in Sacramento. With the Spurs having so many weapons, they just don't need Duncan to produce on a nightly basis. For this reason, Duncan will have stretches of poor play like this throughout the season.
