Most Improved Players From Last Month
LaMarcus Aldridge (Por- PF, C) Aldridge made last month's top 25 fantasy players and has continued his high level of play. Over the past 30 days he has averaged 26.2 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.5 blocks a game. Aldridge's recent performance has allowed him up to shoot up the rankings once again. Currently he ranks at number six behind Paul, Gasol, Love, Durant and Stoudemire. Portland has won their last 6 games. With the extraordinary play of Aldridge and the recent return of Brandon Roy, the Trailblazers are looking to finish the season strong.
Chauncey Billups (NY- PG) Although he has not yet cracked the top 25 (Currently 30th overall), Chauncey Billups has been playing amazing over the 30 days. He has averaged 17.6 points, 2.7 3PTM and 5.4 assists per game. Even more impressively, Billups has shot 49.4% from the field and 98.1% from the field! Just recently, Billups was traded to the Knicks, so it will be interesting to see how this change will affect his fantasy value. With his departure it was said that Ty Lawson will get the starting job in Denver. In Tuesday night's game against Memphis, Ty Lawson had 21 points, 5 rebounds, 7 assists and 6 steals.
