    All the Luka tonight. Though I think it unlikely it will be necessary for him to play too much in the 4th.

    “Jason Kidd says Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, who were limited to the first half in the first two preseason games, will play into the fourth quarter tomorrow in Charlotte.”

    And then stack one of DET or MEM, both of which have a ton of guys out tonight.

    I wish that was in the main slate on FD.

    From a PF perspective I think Grant, Randle, Tillman, Clarke need to be considered along with KP. At SF not sure MPJ is even going to get a look with the value from DET/MEM at that spot likely locked into big minutes.

    Any news on POR/PHO? I can’t imagine Booker plays much, but being the Suns’ last preseason game you would think starters might get a little extra run. Dame only played 18 mins last time out, but maybe they ramp things up a little here.

    Obviously going Luka/KP if they’re playing into the fourth, though I can see POR/PHO going overlooked due to the uncertainty.

    Damian Lillard is playing today, too. #Suns #Blazers

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to start his usual lineup today in Phoenix – Lillard, McCollum, Powell, Covington, Nurkic – but is not yet sure if CJ (ankle) and Powell (hip) are cleared to go.

    Monty Williams said Devin Booker will play in the Suns’ preseason finale today

    Monty said everyone was available pregame, but Cam Payne is starting in Chris Paul place in the usual starting lineup

    POR/PHO isn’t on the DK main slate.

    No but for us Oregonians banished into the shadow realm (FD) it’s on the early slate.

    Apparently Monty said he minutes would go toward the back end of the rotation tonight, so it might be worth taking a flyer on Payne. I can’t imagine we see any Blazers starters in the second half if Phoenix plays it safe here.

    Is luka gonna pull a beal tonight and not get there?

    Mavs similar situation to wiz last night, just gotta get the starters right.

    Grizz have all the min cheap guys you need.

    If he’s playing into the 4th it would take a pretty epic collapse not to get there. I’m more worried about KP being KP.

  • RipCityRings

    Zeller being out makes me wonder who gets the backup C minutes here. Chriss? Or maybe that means Nurk gets more run.

  • billythekidcowboysheat

    Lamelo/bridges vs bamba/mpj??? Asking for a friend😁

    Luka is a very different player than Beal. On an off shooting night, he can still put up a double double on AST and REB. There’s almost never a sure thing in DFS, but I’m likely 100% Luka tonight.

    This. While I’ll likely be 100% Luka, I’ll be nowhere near that with KP. I think there’s a real chance Randle or or one of the MEM PFs could outscore KP.

    McConnel/Brisset (if I were playing) You heard it here folks!!! See ya in 6 days (no skin in the game tonight)

  • newzreview

    On FD, you can play MPJ at PG and Tyus Jones at PF.

  • frugal

    Finally getting a Ziaire Williams start. Let’s see if this kid’s got anything.

  • frugal

    Hmmm…MEM scrubs guards will see the minutes but now to decide if they have the FP upside of DET or BOS scrub guards.

    My guards are mainly Luka(100%), Pritchard, McConnell, Rose, Zaire.
