DFS - NBA - DraftKings - NBA Lineup - Main Slate - 8/6/2020
Thursday, August 6th, 2020 at 4:00 PM
Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!
We got some great NBA action today with a 5-game slate that starts at 4:00pm.
We have a lot of injuries to monitor today. As of right now, we know that both Jimmy Butler and LeBron James are out, and it looks like Russell Westbrook is currently listed as doubtful.
On top that, we have many questionable players in Goran Dragic, Malcolm Brogdon, Jamal Murray, and Will Barton.
With Russell Westbrook out, James Harden is going to have insane ownership tonight and although it’s chance, I’m actually going to fade him tonight as I’m intrigued to see how the LAL/HOU game plays out tonight with both Westbrook & Davis out.
Instead, Im going to go with a much more balanced lineup.
I’m going with a 3-man stack of the Miami Heat as I’m going on the assumption with how careful Miami has been with Jimmy Butler, that Goran Dragic won’t play tonight after hurting his ankle the other day.
With Dragic limited/out and Butler not available, I like getting value with both Kendrick Nunn & Kelly Olynyk while paying up for Bam Adebayo.
Denver could have some regulars back, but I’m still sticking with Michael Porter Jr. who is way too cheap at just $6,400 with the way he has been playing.
Phoenix has looked like a different team in the bubble and I just like the value that both Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton have. Phoenix has an outside shot at the 8-seed and I think they continue their strong effort tonight agianst Indiana.
I’m excited to watch the LAC/DAL game and I’m going to roll with both Paul George in this one.
Rounding out the team, I’m going with the Lakers Dion Walters who should see his usage go up tonight with LeBron already confirmed out.
Here is our NBA DraftKings lineup:
PG: Kendrick Nunn
SG: Dion Walters
SF: Paul George
PF: Kelly Olynyk
C: Bam Adebayo
G: Devin Booker
F: Michael Porter Jr.
UTIL: Deandre Ayton
