Hibbert continues hot stretch
It was a huge game for Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert in their win over the Orlando Magic; he finished with 26 points, eight rebounds and four blocks, and is now averaging 19.4 points, 7.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists in his past five games.
Hibbert showed last season that he has a ton of talent and could be a terrific fantasy player, but has struggled to put it all together this season, even given the added opportunity. Of late, he's clearly tearing it up, and while there will undoubtedly be some more rough patches, he's a viable option at center who can score, rebound, block shots and even dish out some assists for good measure. He's available in most leagues, and is worth adding in all of them.

Paul Pierce is expected back for the Boston Celtics on Wednesday against the Miami Heat, which (hopefully for Celtics fans) means less Tony Allen. If you've been using Allen lately, you may want to sit him this time around. I like the matchup for Devin Harris against Mike Bibby when the New Jersey Nets face the Atlanta Hawks. Harris was terrible on Tuesday night, but should bounce back a bit against the struggling Hawks. Make sure you get any Minnesota Timberwolves you own into your lineup. They'll be facing the Golden State Warriors, and that means plenty of possessions for guys such as Corey Brewer, Jonny Flynn, Ryan Gomes and Ramon Sessions to contribute far more than usual. In fact, the same goes for the Warriors against the Wolves. This is going to be a high-scoring affair.
