Let’s take a look at today’s DraftKings NBA “Main Slate” lineup that features 8 games and starts at 7:00pm!
For our lineups tonight, we’re going to start with taking a look at the Boston Celtics as although it looks as if they’ll have both Kemba Walker (minutes limit) & Marcus Smart back in action, the Celtics have already announced that both Gordon Hayward & Jaylen Brown will be out tonight.
The Celtics have a great match-up at home agianst the Atlanta Hawks, and I’m going to want to get as much action as I can so I’m going with a 2-man stack of Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, and Enes Kanter.
Miami is not going to have Jimmy Butler available tonight so you have to like some of the other Heat options in a nice road match-up against the Sacramento Kings. For the Heat, we’re going to set some nice value in Kendrick Nunn.
Nunn seems fully recovered from an injury that saw him miss three games at the end of January and as he looks fully recovered and saw 35 minutes of action against the Clippers on Wednesday, I think Nunn has some of the best value on the slate at just $4,800.
With Andre Drummond no longer with the Pistons and Markieff Morris out due to an illness tonight, this opens up some nice opportunity for the remaining Pistons frontcourt and we’re going to take advantage of this, despite the tough match-up against Oklahoma City, by rostering both Christin Wood & Thon Maker.
Wood has been outstanding coming off the bench this season and with Drummond no longer with the Pistons, he will step into his role as the starting center going forward and I still think he has nice value at $6,000.
Maker is obviously a bit of a risky play here, but as he should see 20-25 minutes, and showed that he can do some damage with some time (averaged about 26.6 DraftKings points on a 3-game stretch earlier this season when he saw about 20 minutes a game) I think he’ll be able to hit value tonight.
Russell Westbrook is out tonight on the 2nd half of a back-to-back for the Rockets so we’re going to spend up on James Harden and get some value with Robert Covington in the Rockets solid match-up agianst the Suns.
