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. For injury news, please make sure to check our injury article.

Today is a great slate. Let’s go right into where I want to focus when building lineups tonight-

There is a ton of injury news- let’s go over what it means for each team.

Houston Rockets-

Kelly Olynyk, Christian Wood, DJ Augustin and Jae’Sean Tate are QUESTIONABLE. Kevin Porter is out and Danuel House isn’t expected to play. They might be severely undermanned tonight, just make sure to keep an eye out for the news here, Armoni Brooks, Kenyon Martin Jr., and others may have to get 35+ minutes tonight.

New Orleans Pelicans-

Brandon Ingram is OUT with an ankle injury. That should open up more usage and/or minutes for Lonzo Ball, Zion Williamson, and Naji Marshall.

Miami Heat- 

Jimmy Butler is Q with the FLU… if he is out, look for the trio of guards and Bam Adebayo to pick up usage/minutes.

Just keep an eye on news, I will have updates as news comes out. For me, my core plays at the moment include

CASH- J. Tatum,  N. Marshall, D. Wright

GPP- K. Martin, D. Theis, M. Bamba

Good luck tonight!
