This article is part of our NBA Waiver Wire series.
Looking ahead to Week 11, the waiver wire is populated by some impactful, young players who've struggled to produce consistently. Most have shuttled between rosters and waivers for much of the season but could be worth a closer look.
The Lakers and Blazers are the only teams with four games in Week 11. Meanwhile, the Pacers and Grizzlies have just two games on the schedule. That means players like Josh Hart or Zach Collins are more justifiable – if not uninspiring – streaming options, while Tyreke Evans and Cory Joseph are best left unclaimed.
Before we get to this week's top adds, it's worth noting that Eric Gordon is now a must-own for Week 11, and probably another week or two beyond, after the Rockets lost Chris Paul on Thursday night. As of Friday morning it's still unclear how much time Paul will miss, but given his recent history of hamstring issues, it'd be a surprise if he's back before the end of December. Gordon played 38 minutes in a close game against Miami on Thursday, finishing with 20 points, including five made threes.
On the whole, Gordon's shooting has been erratic this season, but he's a virtual lock for 30-plus minutes – and probably closer to 35-plus on most nights – with Paul sidelined. Gordon is available in nearly a third of Yahoo leagues.
