New York Knicks (Back End of B2B)

Reggie Bullock – O

With Bullock out, look for Austin Rivers to play a lot of SG. Rivers’ minutes should be very secure in this plus matchup. Immanuel Quickley should find himself in the rotation as well.

Charlotte Hornets

Cody Zeller – O

Nothing new here from the Hornets. Lamelo Ball continues to impress, the willingness to play three-guard lineups by the Hornets allows for minutes upside for Ball.

Memphis Grizzlies

John Konchar,  Ja Morant – O

Sam story for the Grizzlies, they continue to try and survive with Morant out. Jones will continue to get a majority of the ball-handling work. Slo-mo Kyle Anderson will operate as the backup point guard. If Kyle Anderson was good he would be 7-8k in this role.

Cleveland Cavaliers (Front End of B2B)

Darius Garland, Collin Sexton – O

It doesn’t look like the Cavs will be getting back Garland or Sexton anytime soon. Damyean Dotson will continue to play a massive role for the Cavs. He is still a good investment at his current price.

Milwaukee Bucks

Giannis Antetokounmpo – P

Torrey Craig – O

Bucks back to full strength here. Giannis will continue to dominate PT/Min as long as games stay close. Feels like he has been involved in a blowout every game so far this season. If the game stays close then he is one of the best targets on the slate. I suggest running Giannis back with a Magic player.

Orlando Magic

Evan Fournier – Q

Michael Carter-Williams – O

The Magic will be thin in the backcourt again if Fournier misses. They are risky investments since their price tags aren’t as appealing as they were a few days ago. Once you add in blowout risk, this may be a stay-away game outside of game stacks.

Phoenix Suns

Cameron Payne, Jalen Smith  – O

Great spot for the Suns today. With Cameron Payne out it allows Devin Booker to play more staggered PG from Chris Paul. This is an appealing game to target for stacks.

Washington Wizards 

Russell Westbrook, Thomas Bryant – OUT

With Westbrook out, Raul Neto will once again start. Bradley Beal will dominate usage with Westbrook and Bryant out. Beal has been lights out recently and will look to continue his success today. In regards to the Bryant injury, Robin Lopez should start, Mo Wagner will back him up. I am most excited for Davis Bertans to see more time at the 5. Bertans is one of the best shooters in the NBA, his floor stretching will help Beal a ton.

Philadelphia 76ers (Front End of B2B)

Ben SimmonsTerrance Ferguson, Tobias HarrisFurkan KorkmazShake Milton  Vincent PoirierMike ScottMatisse Thybulle – OUT

Joel Embid, Mike Scott – P

The Sixers will be a situation we want to be invested in today. They have covid and injury issues in bunches. Tyrese Maxey and Isaiah Joe will look to take on a huge responsibility with so many wings and guards out. Joel Embid is back and he is a priority spend up option on today’s slate.

Atlanta Hawks

Bogdan Bogdanovic – O

Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter will look to fill the void left behind by Bogdan. Reddish will step back into his starting role for this contest. This game is an appealing game stack with so many good plays on both sides.

New Orleans Pelicans at Dallas Mavericks – Cancelled 

Toronto Raptors (Back End of B2B)

Still waiting on a Raptors injury report. Shouldn’t be anything too crazy. Something to watch is if they will stop being cowards and start Chris Boucher at the 5.

Portland Trail Blazers

Another healthy report from the Trail Blazers. Wing rotation is a mess. Everything runs through the backcourt. Nurkic is still underpriced if he continues to get minutes around 30.

Indiana Pacers (Front End of B2B)

Nothing new on their injury report. Sabonis is in a great spot today, he is getting expensive but I still think he is a worthy investment. Brogdon has been so impressive this year as well. Interesting game stack if we get some value from the Kings side.

Sacramento Kings 

Buddy Hield, Richaun Holmes – Q

The Kings will be a situation to monitor. Tyrese Haliburton has impressed in the first part of his rookie campaign. Haliburton will most likely be inserted into the starting lineup if either Hield or Holmes misses tonight. I would have him in my lineup as a placeholder since he is a good play even if both guys go. Hassan Whiteside becomes one of the best value plays on the slate if Holmes misses tonight’s contest. Indiana is a big team so they will need his length. Make sure you leave late swap options open.
