    Harrell played great but be careful with him. He could easily get quick fouls and be out for much of the first half. Which is exactly what happened in a game earlier this year at GS. Just be prepared for that possible outcome.

    Not like we have many options anyway.

    Embid is banged up. Jarret Allen sucks. Ed Davis is likely out. Boogie doesnt seem to play well in this GS offense with fast pace. I think Harrell is the best play here….

    Yeah, to go for a GPP hit you need to hope Embiid sits and play like Monroe and someone like Shai, Iggy (hope for a blow-out) and fill in the rest. If Embiid sits everyone will play the Boban, Curry, Simmons or Butler. Cash game is a more conservative LU obviously, but the line will be very tight as you say. Maybe a night for just a couple wild small-entry fee GPPs and hope someone sits early in a blow-out or injury tweak.

    Iggy does not play garbage time

    hasn’t played in a bit. maybe look at JyMichael Green in a faster paced game, and if Harrell gets in foul trouble, JayMichael could get big minutes.

    just a pivot idea as everyone will swing to RHJ if Davis is out, also bec. it is a straight price swap on FD. In a 2-game slate you sometimes gotta look for the lower ownership play. of course you could just do a LU w/ each.

    I have a $25 Fantasy Basketball Million Ticket. Any idea on when this contest takes place?

  • BerkeleyBoss

    I wonder how many will play Cousins at 9k on FD. I’m kinda tempted, even after that ugly game 1.

    5/30. You are able to reserve your seat now.

  • aus1032

    I th ink if Ed Davis is out they’ve gotta go RHJ. It’s worked a little in the past and Jarrett Allen just cannot guard embiid.

    I made some nice cash betting on the spurs and then betting on the rockets-the spurs I could not figured why they were underdogs by that much. I feel they are the better team with a better coach-now what I NEVER EVER EVER EVER saw happening was the nets beating phily and man if they do it again…..I think Embid has to play even if he is really hurting-Phily getting knocked out by the nets would be beyond horrible for that team. I actually had philly in the finals vs gs and I though philly could take them…..

    in daily jimmy is a lock tonight

  • emnj69

    if embid sits roll out allen as he then will have a big game and does not have to be stuck hiding on the bench

  • emnj69

    oh and lol denver -6 again vs the spurs-keep feeding me please

  • aus1032

    Tobi played 40 minutes and scored 4 points. That has to change right

  • Any chance we see any if dudley and davis are out?

    would absolutely love to see it lol ppm monster but probably not

    Just doing 2 LUs tonight on DK. One of which has no Steph/Embiid/Simmons/Durant/Boogie (Jimmy my most expensive player). Going Klay/Dray to be a little different. I think Embiid has to play (and will) and the only thing I’m considering if Ed Davis plays is whether or not to play RHJ. I think fading ownership can work tonight (not usually the case) because Staph, Embiid (if in), DRuss, LouWill, Durant, Boogie will be much higher owned than anyone else and if yo do in fact fade them and they put up 40 spots you WILL be differentiating.

  • sox9

    Looks like we may not hear on Embiid or Davis until tip. Think they have both had their shoot-arounds already and know what they are going to do. They may say they will wait and see during warm-ups, but they already know. They simply won’t disclose to keep the opponent guessing until tip. The HEAT are famous for that.

    40 is decent for Sweet Lou’s price

    I think he will, because they will lose if he doesn’t.

    I thought the same thing about Blake Griffin yesterday and didn’t get the news he was out until super late.

    Does he play more than 20-25 minutes tonight?

    per courtIQ, RHJ on the court suppresses JE’s fppm slightly more then Mr Ed’s.

  • sox9

    Assume the sharps already have the outlook from the morning shootaround.

    He played 20 minutes despite fouling out. His minutes were a direct result of foul trouble.

  • ASitar

    I think Embiid plays. Lines up to -8.5 from -7.5 and I think if he was out it’d be -7.

  • ASitar

    And the money is 50/50 (bets)
