This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
The Week 10 waiver wire is dominated by high-upside, speculative adds. There are several players like Trey Lyles, Bobby Portis, and Kevin Knox, who could each provide several weeks of top-70 value, or who could be back on the waiver wire by the end of next week. For each of them, we just don't have enough information to be certain of what to expect.
As always, I list these speculative adds in the order I recommend adding them. However, especially when it comes to this type of high-upside speculative prospect, you have to make the decisions that are right for you and your roster. It is really unlikely that all three of Lyles, Portis, and Knox will achieve their best-case scenario.
In fact, I'd say it's much more likely that all of them are dropped before Christmas than that two of them reach that top-70 range over the course of a month. I still think each is worth adding, but most rosters don't have room for three low-floor waiver guys. If you need a season-long add, then Lyles is not your guy, even though I think he has the highest ceiling and is the most likely to hit his max. If you want Knox, don't pass on him just because I put him below some other guys available in your league.
As always, we'll focus on players available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues.
Trey Lyles, Nuggets (13 percent rostered)
