    Why no Siakam? Isn’t pf where you attack the heat?

    He’s not a must play, he’s delivered mixed results with Kawhi out. Certainly has upside though. If I make 1 lineup, I’ll probably play him, if I make multiple I’ll start fading him. Don’t really have that strong a stance either way. Playing or fading seems fine to me.

    Nah. The back court, or even SF before the front court. The Raptor in the best spot is Danny Green, but the upside is limited with a guy like him. Only reason I’m interested in Gasol is the price and I think he gets heavy run as opposed to Ibaka. Referring to DK.

    Will Memphis have to give Jonas some extra minutes because of the matchup with Vuch?

    Tough to find leverage on small slate. Just take 6x+ with Siakam.

    I thought Gasol would get good run and expose the Pels Friday, but Ibaka was the guy off the bench. Not sure either Raptor center will be necessary. Do you touch Butler today? Game log watchers will like his previous score against Pacers.

    He’s not a lock for 6x, and PF’s have not been feasting off Miami. He certainly has upside, and Kawhi being out has been a mixed bag for Siakam. I think everyone whether they realize it or not, thinks Siakam is always an awesome play when Kawhi sits because of the 70 burger he hung on the Wizards. However, the matchup and pace were prime there. He’s underwhelmed enough (and delivered enough as well) when Kawhi has missed that I can see the case for fading or playing.

    You should take a closer look at that game with regards to Gasol.

    If LaVine sits, who sees the biggest uptick?

    That lu cabarot guy… Maybe

  • IT4MVP

    Why was Lopez so bad vs Det the other day? Drum lock him down like that?

    thought about this too, ultimately his minutes are really hard to predict. he’s due for a 50 burger, but who knows. he has hit at least 37 in 6/9 games with the grizz so far.

    Is Dieng gonna start for Minnesota tonight or will the run Taj?

    in same spot vs NYK when KAT sat taj started last time…dieng hasn’t been getting a lot of PT so have to think it’s the same

    One thing to consider there is that Dieng wasn’t with the team either that day. I don’t know how the dynamic will play out this time, but they didn’t even have that option.

    That position for both teams could be huge. Will the tanking Knicks run Jordan for 30 minutes on a back to back off his injury? Trying to figure out if I embrace this uncertainty or just take Wiggins assuming he is over his boo boo/bruise.

    I think they’ll need Dieng’s size against Jordan too. If they start Taj again, Jordan would become a pretty appealing GPP play. He ate the Wolves up inside that game.

    The Knicks have tanked so well that they no longer need to tank. They can choose to play hard if they want. They want to keep Jordan happy….he is best buds with KD, the key to the future of their franchise.

  • monarch

    I am getting a lot of Siakam and like the LUs plenty with him but I think the LUs without him have a higher probability of a higher cash should he underwhelm at 60/70 percent ownership.

  • ScofieldReturns

    looking at the logs, saric never seems to really get more 24ish minutes…does that really change today?

  • yisman

    Embiid, Sabonis, Glass, Okafor, Wiggins, and Gay questionable. KAT doubtful. Lot of news today.

    I will be shocked if Sabonis doesn’t play and feel pretty good about Embiid as well

  • TJRhodes

    Rockets short handed at C, all in on Capela.

  • vick325

    Winslow/Siakim or jrich/Tobias?

  • ASitar

    I’m only doing 2 DK 6:00 LUs and have Ibaka and Gasol in one together, D Green and Lowry in both.

    dallas has been miserable against C’s lately, too. I dunno if I want all of it, but I’ll have some capela.

  • BBWC_10

    Patiently waiting for some news, I obviously like the NO/Atl game but I think it will be the most popular. So far core guys looking like (ABC/Randle/Prince/Deroz) Should be lots of value out there.
