Big night of NBA action – and it will be a great night to be involved in daily fantasy. Below I have my initial picks for the night, but will likely add guys as the day rolls along & info comes in via Twitter.
PG – Tony Wroten
I’m pretty sure I could get a few good looks on this 76ers team who is clearly tanking for the 2nd season in a row. Wroten is a guy that can fill up the stat sheet, and appears to be the starting PG tonight.
PG – Donald Sloan
Risky, but with several players out for the Pacers, and facing a weak 76ers team – Sloan should get plenty of run and he’s the minimum price on this site.
G – Kirk Hinrich
Probably will get the start in place of Jimmy Butler who is OUT. Is capable of a good number if he gets 30+ minuets.
F – Otto Porter Jr.
It’s pretty well known he was lighting it up this preseason, and with Bradley Beal, Nene and DeJuan Blair out – he’s a viable option.
F – Chris Copeland
I’ve seen numerous reports that he is starting, and he had a good pre-season where he was knocking down 3’s. This is a good matchup of NBA teams that have D-League like squads. Update: Looks like Solomon Hill is starting instead. I think you can still roll with Copeland since the Pacers will need some scorers, but his upside is now limited.
F – Wesley Johnson
The Lakers looked bad last night, and they lost rookie Julius Randle. Johnson played 40 minuets and that might be the norm considering LA doesn’t have anyone else that can play.
C – Mason Plumlee
Not as cheap as I’d like, but he did well last season when the Nets needed him. Brook Lopez is OUT – so he should get the start.
