Hello everybody, and welcome back to another DFS Karma Game Theory article by yours truly! Today there are a couple things to monitor regarding injuries and COVID-19 protocols, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled. For injury news, please make sure to check our injury article. Also check out my NBA First Impression Video. All you have to do is click on that link attached. After that, come back to this article to make sense of the news and look at couple of ways to start building for this slate. This is a nicely sized slate with a bit of injury news, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled throughout the day for updated news.

On both sites, I would start by locking in Isaiah Stewart. Plumlee is out tonight so Stewart should get the start and he gets a tougher matchup vs Moses Brown who will make him work for his rebounds but nonetheless he’s really cheap on both sites and should get at least 25 minutes. There isn’t a real competition for minutes and Stewart is a little undersized but he should easily be able to surpass value.

This OKC team as a whole is a nice spot to attack- OKC only has 8 players- as Roby and Hall got concussions and Jackson was waived. This will thrust the entire team outside of Darius Miller into play. I think the strongest plays are Maledon, Kenrich Williams, and Bradley/Brown should split the center minutes. Mykhaliuk and Jerome are fine plays as well but they will take a bit away from each other in my opinion so I would take a stand with one over the other.

I think this Houston team will get blown out tonight but there are some really nice plays that I will be looking at, specifically Kelly Olynyk and Kevin Porter Jr. Olynyk started the second half in place of House and had a great game. PHX is on a tear this season and they have legit capability of blowing teams out by 30, and we know how bad Houston is. We’re hoping that Kevin Porter doesn’t turn the ball over 8 times again, since his price isn’t too bad.
