The NBA is back tonight as we have a great two game slate that starts at 6:30pm and features the Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Pelicans & Los Angeles Clippers vs. Los Angeles Lakers.
Please make sure you follow my Twitter (@BrettCU05) as this is the best place I’m going to be able to post any last-minute adjustments. We still are waiting for the update injury reports and as there are a ton of individuals that have injury tags on them, any unexpected news could really alter our lineups.
Let’s take a at our DraftKings lineup for tonight!
Utah is going to be a popular stack tonight as with Bojan Bogdanovic opting out from playing the rest of the season, it leaves Utah with what should be a short rotation and heavy minutes for 5-6 players.
Unlike our FanDuel lineup, I’m going to be going with what should be a very popular Jordon Clarkson tonight as you just can’t get better value on tonight’s slate as he is just $4,200 and should see plenty of minutes. I’m going to pair Clarkson with Donovan Mitchell who is a must-play for me tonight.
New Orleans still hasn’t confirmed if Zion Williamson is going to play and even if he does, I’m not going to risk rostering him tonight as I do think he’ll be on a minute’s restriction tonight.
For the Pelicans, I’m going to go with a 2-man stack of Lonzo Ball and Derrick Favors.
Ball has been outstanding this season for the Pelicans and I think that continues tonight. Ball can fill out a stat sheet and as I expect him to see 30-35 minutes tonight, I think he can get us a 40+ DraftKings point outing.
As for Derrick Favors, I love going with him over what should be a heavily owned Rudy Gobert tonight. Favors is very familiar with Gobert as spending 9 years with the Jazz and between he fact the he has looked in the scrimmages and that he could see a bump in minutes with Williamson most likely restricted, I love getting favors in our lineup.
When it comes to the Lakers/Clippers match-up, one of the first things you need to look at is the current backcourt situation for the Clippers as currently, Lou Williams & Montrezl Harrell is out and Patrick Beverley is currently a GTD although he missed the AM shootaround today. This opens some great value for both Reggie Jackson & JaMychal Green.
I’m going to fade both Lebron James & Kawhi Leonard as I think they’ll just battling against one another all game and instead pay up for the other superstars in this match-up in Paul George & Anthony Davis.
