NBA Preseason Primer: Thursday, October 11th

Hello Grinders, welcome to another season of NBA Preseason. I’ll be doing a breakdown of each preseason slate. In parallel, we’ll have tags and projections in LineupHQ, discussions in the RotoGrinders Discord chat and a Court Report live blog each weekday by SBK. The way I would approach NBA preseason is to use this article as a primer for the day and then rely on the Court Report if you can for the latest news right before tipoff. If you’re interested in learning more about what’s available or want to sign up, you can find information here.

The NBA preseason is a lot about information gathering, so we’re going to be heavily reliant on beat reporters, tweets and articles that give us insight into how many minutes a player may get. Not all beat reporters are created equal, and that’s the hardest part about NBA preseason DFS. Some teams are great about sharing information, while some teams barely share anything DFS relevant. The goal of this article is share what I’ve found and try to make the most informed decisions we can based on it.
