Welcome to another edition of Bales’ Top GPP play. In this article, I will outline my favorite NBA GPP play for today’s games. If you want all of my core plays along with our staff’s Final Thoughts article and access to our Discord, click here.
White hasn’t enjoyed the breakout many were expecting for the Chicago Bulls this season. Still, he’s averaging 14.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4.6 assists (28.8 fantasy points) in 31.2 minutes per game through 46 contests. White’s averaging only 19.1 fantasy points in 27.3 minutes per game over the last 10 days, although those are limited contests due to injury. He still boasts 30+ fantasy point upside, even if his minutes are limited a bit.
White gets an interesting matchup against the Toronto Raptors tonight. They rank 12th in the NBA in pace and 11th in defensive efficiency. Toronto’s seen mixed results against guards this season, although they’re dealing with a number of injuries to their guards. White’s usage rating has sat around 14% since returning from injury, although it’s much more likely to hit 20-25% as the season progresses. His minutes are a bit unknown due to his neck injury, although he played 31 minutes in his last game. He’s expected to see minutes in the high-20s or low-30s tonight, although it may not matter for his price. White’s far too cheap for his upside, and he’s an outstanding option on this slate.
