There are a few early NBA games, so got these up early. I might add/edit some names for the later games if any changes come across the wire.
PG Kirk Hinrich at LA Clippers
Derrick Rose is done again (might actually help the Bulls) Every grinder is going to make this their go-to ‘sleeper’ today, and its not the best matchup since he’s guarding Chris Paul. Good thing is Paul played a physical game yesterday afternoon so he might be a little tired.
PG/SG Shaun Livingston vs Detroit
Didn’t have a good game last time out, but the Nets kinda suck anyway, so that will happen … most of the starters didn’t play the 4th. Deron Williams is out.
G/F Gerald Green at Orlando
Pretty sure Eric Bledsoe is out still, he said that walking was hard to do right now, so I doubt he’s playing basketball today. It’s Gerald Green’s world and we’ll be living in it.
F Mike Dunleavy & Taj Gibson at LA Clippers
With 2/5ths of the Bulls starting lineup out, these two are getting more playing time. Dunleavy was already starting and has done ok. Gibson has been off for a while and has some tough players to guard in this one. But when you only have a few games, your sleepers aren’t for sure things and both have upside given the injuries.
F Kyle Singler at New Jersey
Got the start last game for Josh Smith, and did well. J-Smoove appears to be in some kind of dog-house and Singler can shoot.
