UPDATE – 6:00 ET
*Sample lineups have changed. View them below.
Jaylen Brown and Marcus Morris OUT. Marcus Smart becomes a decent DFS filler if you need someone in his salary range. Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier are tournament plays in the wake of this news.
Draymond Green upgraded to questionable. Obviously we would need Draymond to be ruled out in order to feel comfortable with Jordan Bell in our lineups.
Danilo Gallinari will play. He’ll likely start at power forward while Wes Johnson keeps starting at PF. We’ll take a wait-and-see approach with Gallo in terms of minutes and production.
INJURY REPORT – 12:30pm ET
Draymond Green doubtful. We’ll need to see what Steve Kerr decides here. Andre Iguodala or Jordan Bell could see the start in Draymond’s place, depending if the Warriors go smaller or not. Both are now on the fantasy radar. We aren’t sure what the minutes will look like for Bell, but he’s a strong FP/minute producer who went for 43 FP in 26 minutes the last time Draymond sat. He’s worth the risk as a near-minimum salary guy.
Stephen Curry out. Patrick McCaw out. Kevin Durant, and Klay Thompson will see more usage, and they look particularly good in this matchup. With McCaw also out, Shaun Livingston could now see 25-30 minutes. He’s somewhat of a risk/reward play without much usage considering the players around him. Still, he’s a reasonable DFS prospect considering the playing time boost.
Anthony Davis doubtful. DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday will continue to carry the offensive workload with Davis on the mend.
Kyle Anderson out. He’ll miss at least a couple of weeks. His minutes will likely be split between Rudy Gay, Bryn Forbes, and Danny Green. Rudy Gay saw 31 minutes (36 FP) with Anderson out last game.
Willie Cauley-Stein doubtful. Zach Randolph and Skal Labissiere could see more minutes. Randolph is a fine speculative play, given he has a strong probability of playing 30+ minutes.
Danilo Gallinari questionable. He was projected to return tonight, but still listed as questionable. He’ll likely have some sort of minute restriction even if he does check in.
These noteworthy players will continue to miss time: Tim Hardaway Jr, Nikola Jokic, Paul Millsap, John Collins, Terrence Ross, Hassan Whiteside, Kawhi Leonard, Blake Griffin, Patrick Beverley, Dewayne Dedmon, Mike Conley
*Check back ONE HOUR before lock for injury and optimal lineup updates*
Rajon Rondo (NO): Rondo is a nice pick tonight, playing in a high-scoring game vs Denver, who ranks 27th vs PGs and 21st in overall defensive efficiency. Not having Anthony Davis helps his fantasy floor/ceiling potential while shouldering a larger offensive workload.
Eric Bledsoe (MIL): Bledsoe is a fine all-around selection tonight. The salary looks good on both FanDuel and DraftKings. The matchup is somewhat mediocre, but I like the floor/upside combination in a competitive matchup vs Detroit. He’s not a 100% necessity, but Bledsoe makes for a solid blend you can feel confident in for cash games.
