It’s FRIDAY – that’s always a good thing PLUS you have a sweet night of NBA games. There are tons of ‘injuries’ right now (I honestly thinK you have some guys thinking about the all-star break). That’s great for sleepers to come up.
G – John Wall vs Cleveland
Okay, so he’s one of the more expensive PGs – but you know the drill. The no-D Kyrie theory has been widely accurate and there’s no reason to think it will slow down with someone this talented. Kyrie is actually a game-time call in this one, leading me even more likely to play Wall.
LA Lakers at 76ers.
Thankfully this is an early game – you’re going to want to confirm who’s playing. Pau, Kobe, Farmar, Meeks, Nick Young are out. Steve Blake is a game-time call. Jordan Hill is coming back from injury, but should play. Steve Nash & Chris Kaman will play, but usually have limited mins. That leaves Wesley Johnson, Ryan Kelly, Robert Sacre, Kendall Marshall as ‘regulars’ who haven’t recently worn a suit for a game.
G – Jerryd Bayless vs Sacramento
In this game you have Rajon Rondo out, and Avery Bradley is questionable – so Bayless could step up into a bigger role like he has at times recently.
G – Jamal Crawford vs Toronto
Isn’t a bad play any night, but looks like J.J. Redick might not play – and he went off last game when Redick didn’t play.
G – Matthew Dellavedova or C.J. Miles if Kyrie doesn’t play
Okay, so if no-D Kyrie doesn’t play, Matthew is the super risky play (I’d want to make sure he was starting if I played him). C.J. is either on fire, or does nothing – but has the most upside even if Kyrie were to play.
F – Danny Granger vs Portland
I’m not sure how high your upside is here, considering he’s probably on a minuets cap of around 25 – but he is starting for injured Lance Stephenson.
