It's Joever: Ingles' tenure on the waiver wire is running out quickly

There were only four games on Tuesday, which didn't allow for many widely available players to shine. Jrue Holiday shined as the short-handed Bucks withstood Fred VanVleet and the Raptors. Keldon Johnson led the Spurs past the Nets, who were without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. Ben Simmons recorded his first triple-double of the season. Nikola Jokić was nearly perfect (13-for-14 FGs) while posting a 30-point triple-double as the Nuggets beat Portland despite 44 points from Damian Lillard. Joel Embiid dropped 41 to lead the 76ers past Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers. However, between those games and the injuries for Wednesday's games, there are plenty of guys to add to your team that can make an impact. 

Joe Ingles-  4% rostered in Yahoo! leagues

After missing over a year of NBA action, Ingles didn't come out of the gates strong. However, he's getting back into the swing of things, and it's resulted in more production from him. He has posted top-100 value in 9-cat leagues over the past week and should continue to play a large role with Khris Middleton sidelined. He finished with 15 points, six rebounds and eight assists against the Raptors on Tuesday. However, they don't play again until Saturday in Cleveland.

Grayson Allen- 22%

Like Ingles, Allen has shined as of late with Khris Middleton out. Over the past two weeks, he has been a top-100 asset in 9-cat leagues. He tied his season-high with 25 points against Toronto on Tuesday and is a consistent source of 3-pointers. He has started all season and should be rostered in more leagues.

Nicolas Batum- 7%

Paul George has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Utah, which is the second night of a back-to-back. Batum had been starting in his place, so he should slide back into the starting unit for this game. He hasn't been much of a fantasy asset this season, but he should be able to provide some value from deep.

Terance Mann- 38%

With PG out, there's a decent chance that Luke Kennard and Kawhi Leonard sit too. Mann has been the starter in favor of Reggie Jackson for their last five games, so regardless of who's available, Mann is worth a roster spot. He has provided top-75 value over the past week, which should continue as long as he's the starter.

Naz Reid- 30%

Rudy Gobert is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game after exiting early from each of their last two games with a groin injury. If he sits, Reid should be in lineups everywhere. In four starts this season Reid has averaged 20.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 2.3 threes and 1.8 steals per game.

Gabe Vincent- 33%

Kyle Lowry is listed as questionable to play on Wednesday due to a knee issue. Over his last three games, Vincent has averaged 21.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 3.0 steals and 4.0 threes. If Lowry is out, Vincent should be in every lineup you have when they take on the Pelicans.

Caris LeVert- 42%

Donovan Mitchell is considered doubtful for Wednesday's matchup with Memphis due to a groin injury. Caris LeVert should slide into the starting unit and provide an offensive boost, though Cedi Osman (3%), Isaac Okoro (2%) and Lamar Stevens (less than 1%) should all play larger roles.
