Kyrie Irving couldn't get anything going on offense against the Bobcats during Friday's 101-92 loss, making 5-of-17 from the field for 13 points with six boards, five assists and two steals.
He turned the ball over four times and missed all seven shots from downtown. Irving was playing well before tonight's dud with each of his last four games including a field goal percentage of at least 43.8 percent, so his averages over the last five are solid at 23.4 points, 5.2 boards, 7.0 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.2 triples. He'll bounce back against the Knicks on Saturday.
Dion Waiters played well off the bench on Friday with 19 points, five boards, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer
He looked good in his return on Tuesday and saw 32 minutes of action tonight. Waiters' knee injury from last month looks like a non-issue, but his fantasy upside still isn't too high since he gets most of his production in just points. He's a better fit for points leagues than in standard-style formats.
