BY foxsports • January 11, 2016

Every Monday, D.J. Foster will highlight 10 potential waiver wire adds for your fantasy basketball team. Here are the selections for the week of January 10:

 Fantasy Basketball Top 10 Waiver Adds (January 10)
Player Position Opponents Note
Jusuf Nurkic C GSW, MIA, IND Per 36 minute career numbers: 12.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals, 2.3 blocks. Killer pickup in points leagues, as percentages leave a little to be desired.
Avery Bradley PG/SG NYK, IND, PHO, WAS Back from a hip injury and already playing big minutes again. He'll help right away in points, steals and 3PM. 
Robin Lopez C BOS, BKN, MEM Rebounding from a slow start and returning roto gold in January with 1.8 blocks and perfect free throw shooting. 
Rodney Hood SG/SF POR, SAC, LAL Could have a big week against lackluster defenses. Averaging 18.5 PPG and 3.0 3PM in January.
Robert Convington SF/PF CHI, POR You can likely wait until next week, but he's a good stash. Played 32 minutes on Sunday and offers big 3PM and steal production when healthy. 
Devin Booker SG IND, BOS, MIN Averaging 16 PPG in January with solid contributions elsewhere. Biggest benefactor from Eric Bledsoe's season-ending injury.  
Shane Larkin PG SAS, NYK, POR, ATL Worth a look in deeper leagues as the new starting point guard with Jarrett Jack out. Will help in assist category more than anything else. 
Emmanuel Mudiay PG GSW, MIA, IND Finally healthy again and playing big minutes. He'll kill your percentages in roto, but he's very useful in points leagues. 
Bojan Bogdanovic SG/SF SAS, NYK, POR, ATL Someone has to score in Brooklyn, especially if Joe Johnson gets dealt at some point. Boggyman could be a sneaky source of points and threes.
Bobby Portis PF WAS, MIL, PHI, DAL Carved out a role in Chicago's crowded frontcourt and would be extremely valuable if someone gets hurt or is dealt.

Safe to cut: Jarrett Jack, Ty Lawson, Mo Williams

Monday DFS value play: Gerald Green ($4,000 FD)

Green is playing starter's minutes lately, and the possessions should be plentiful in an uptempo game against Golden State. He's a little tough to trust in cash games, but few players have the upside to score 35+ points like Green does when he gets hot. He's a great tourney play at this price.
