Damien Wilkins SG/SF ATL 11 Months
Damien Wilkins has been invited to Hawks training camp.
He played with the Sixers last season and made some noise late in the season, but at this point, he'll simply be trying to make an NBA roster. Ignore him on draft night.

Damien Wilkins is still starting for the Sixers, but is playing terribly, missing all seven of his shots on Wednesday to finish with six points and four assists in 23 minutes.
That's three straight games with seven points or less, while Nick Young is suddenly on fire. Make the switch if you need a hot player.

Damien Wilkins hit just 1-of-5 shots for five points in 22 minutes on Tuesday.
The Nets dominated the game and Wilkins is no longer hot, especially as Nick Young continues to come on for the Sixers. Young had 18 tonight, but as long as Wilkins continues to start for the Sixers, he's still worth a look in some fantasy leagues.

Damien Wilkins had a quiet game vs. the Heat, scoring seven points on 3-of-10 shooting, with three rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes.
Playing time wasn't an issue tonight, but Nick Young (10 points) logged 21 minutes and he could spoil Wilkins' value if his role continues to increase. Just keep an eye on the situation for now, as Doug Collins seems very fond of the veteran Wilkins.

Damien Wilkins scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in Friday's win over the Hawks.
Wilkins has been getting it done in fantasy leagues and he should be owned in all formats right now.

Damien Wilkins scored 15 points (6-of-10 shooting) with four rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes on Saturday, joining five other Sixers in double-figures.
Philly has suddenly won four straight games, though it provides little more than good vibes for a ninth-place team with no realistic chance of making the playoffs. Doug Collins isn't wavering in Wilkins as the starting SG, which makes Wilkins a viable option if he's still floating on your waiver wire.

Damien Wilkins played 38 minutes against the Cavs on Friday, scoring just seven points with three boards, six assists, one steal and two blocks.
As far as guys go that are averaging just 15 minutes per game this year, he's been on a mini tear and averaged 18.0 points and 2.0 steals in his previous four. He's not going to be getting any shoe deals or anything, but he's worth owning in standard leagues. Dorell Wright played just 21 minutes and scored three points, so he's clearly trending down.

Damien Wilkins stayed hot on Wednesday with 18 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 7-of-15 shooting.
He had 17 points and a full stat line on Sunday and has been rolling for several games now. As long as he's starting for the Sixers, he's worth owning in most fantasy leagues. And yes, it felt weird to write that.

Damien Wilkins' hot streak continued with 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in Sunday's win vs. the Kings.
Wilkins shot 6-of-13 from the field with one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in almost 40 minutes of action. Doug Collins appreciates the 33-year-old's consistent energy and there have been no suggestions that Wilkins might lose the starting SG job. Give him a look if you need a low-end source of fantasy value -- he averaged 11.5 points per game in March, with 0.8 threes, 2.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 blocks

Damien Wilkins scored a team-high 24 points against the Nuggets on Thursday, adding one board, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.
Despite the big line, Wilkins had a terrible closing seconds in this game. He fouled Corey Brewer on a 3-pointer with 2.1 seconds left to put Denver up one, then he attempted the potential game-winning jumper and had it blocked. The Sixers are a total mess, but Wilkins could be coming on for owners in deeper leagues.
