Top 3 Waiver Wire Adds

  1. Luguentz Dort (42% rostered) — Dort has struggled with injury over the last month but he’s played in four of the Thunder’s last five games. In those games he’s averaging 28 PPG/5.5 RPG/2 APG/2.8 StPG.
  2. Cole Anthony (27% rostered) — The Magic’s rookie has played in Orlando’s last seven games after missing extended time with injury and started their last two games. In that span, Anthony is averaging 12.9 PPG/4.9 RPG/5.6 APG/1 StPG.
  3. Nerlens Noel (26% rostered) — If you need defense and rebounding, Noel is a must-add. In the month of April, Noel is averaging 6.2 points, 7.4 boards, and 2.6 blocks per game.
