Week 21 of the Fantasy Basketball season begins on Monday and for many that means this is the last week of the regular season. Make sure you rid yourself of under-performing players and work that waiver wire daily to give yourself the best possible chance of making your league playoffs. Here is what I have for you this week!

Teams with four games this week are the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Cleveland Cavaliers, Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Memphis Grizzlies, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers, Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento Kings, Utah Jazz and Washington Wizards.

The Toronto Raptors have five games this week. The Los Angeles Lakers have two games this week and all other NBA teams have three games scheduled for week 21 of the Fantasy Basketball season.

Week 21 Waiver Wire Options

Point Guard: Norris Cole and the Pelicans have four games this week and Cole has been solid averaging 13.8 points, 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal and just over 1 triple a night over his last five games. Minutes matter and Cole is averaging nearly 30 per night during that stretch while shooting 43 percent from the floor and was perfect from the line. Cole is available in just over 65 percent of all Major Fantasy Basketball leagues.

Shooting Guard: Gary Harris and the Nuggets have four games this week and Harris averaged 13.8 points, 3 rebounds, 1 assist, 1.4 steals and 2 triples a night during the past five games. Harris played 34 minutes a night during that stretch of games and shot 44 percent from the floor and just 57 percent from the line and is available in just over 70 percent of all Major Fantasy Basketball leagues.

Power Forward: Bobby Portis and the Bulls have four games this week and over the past five games Portis has taken advantage of his 24 minutes a night averaging 8 points, 8 rebounds, 1 steal with the occasional assist and triple thrown in for good measure. During that same five game stretch Portis shot 38 percent from the floor and 66 percent from the line and is available in just over 80 percent of all Major Fantasy Basketball leagues.

Center: Ian Mahinmi and the Pacers have four games this week and over the past five games Mahinmi averaged 6.6 points, 6.8 boards, 2 assists with a steal and a block playing 25 minutes a night. Mahinmishot 51 percent from the floor and a miserable 45 percent from the line and is available in just over 65 percent of all Major Fantasy Basketball leagues.

Shooting Guard: Bojan Bogdanovic and the Brooklyn Nets have three games this week and with Joe Johnson off to Miami Bogdanovic is averaging 14.8 points, 3 rebounds, an assist and nearly 2 triples a night while playing 30 minutes a contest. During that same five game stretch Bogdanovic shot 41 percent from the floor and 85 percent from the line and is available in just over 75 percent of all Major Fantasy Basketball leagues.
