    Looking to get in on some NBA, is there somewhere I can find starting lineups? Any guys to look for today?

  • ChrundleTheGreat

    Twitter is the best place for lineups, especially during summer league. Team’s accounts and beat writers are the ones to follow.

    Summer league is a brutal time to start though, very hard to actually know playing time. Guys will be 30% owned and not play. If you can put in the time to research there is opportunity.

    I asked that same question about finding starting lineups in yesterday’s thread, and monarch (a trusted source!) said “Twitter. If you are lucky the beat writer or team will send them out.”
    As far as guys to look for today, you can find stats for Summer League players here
    https://www.nba.com/summerleague/2019/stats
    but the big question is whether they get playing time or not.

    Welcome to the party, and good luck!

    Two tries, single bullets, total of 3 DNP’S, after spending a lot of time researching and learning zero. Too much uncertainty for me, but I did finish a buck and a quarter positive. I’ll stick with WNBA, with its crazy variances, at least you can find starting lineups on Rotowire.

    Four tries with $1 single bullets in each of the early and main slates so far. Cashed 3/4 times with one DNP in 2 of them, won $40 the one time everybody played. Yesterday I picked up 3 DNPs in the main slate, though, so it’s time to start looking at twitter. I just can’t bear to watch WNBA, and figure watching as many of these Summer League games as possible might come in handy when evaluating punts next season. Loads of uncertainty, which is why I don’t risk more than $1 per slate.

    I’ve got a beat writer list I’ve been actively checking before games the last two days and they barely give any info. They seem to routinely post starting lineups 5 min after lock. But there must be something I don’t know because everyone was on Jeff Withey yesterday. Not that it worked out, but clearly that starting lineup was available. All that being said, I played $34 yesterday and won $84. I do love summer league.

    Also with today’s slate is there something DK knows that we don’t? Simons for example who was 8.2 yesterday is like 5.5 today. Are they expecting him to sit because its b2b? But hes 20 years old and the game was 1230pm yesterday and 7pm tonight. Plenty of time

    Nice hit!

    The Withey thing was easy to deduce by looking at the Wiz roster . They only had one other big on the roster but Withey still didnt smash because they played 6’3 Admiral Schofield at C a bunch in that game.

    Create your own beat writer list on Twitter. Or use https://hashtagbasketball.com/nba/ ..click on the “custom Twitter feed” link for each team to see the beat writers tweets for that specific team. I’m not sure how often they update their list though. I have a large list of my own if you want to follow it on Twitter (PM me, I’ll give you a link).

    Also if you’re trying to get info on a specific player, use Twitter’s search function. Just type in the player’s name and scroll through the latest tweets to see if anyone has given an update. Or search specific keywords like “Boston Celtics starters” for example.

    I played the other dude with the funny name from the same deduction.

    Any early slate locks fellas?

    You did the right thing

  • gaelicgirl

    When you took Miles Bridges in the first game but not today…

  • monarch

    Just made my initial SL LU for tonights slate. Took about an hour….lol

    Landmines everywhere

  • dame_face_420

    Who are these landmines you speak of

    and then throw it all out and start over………after lock and the lineups come out give up completely and hope by some miracle you have enough fps to cash.

    @dame_face_420 said...

    Don’t know yet.

    Possibly Coby White, Justin Wright Foreman, Tony Bradley.

    Also the Grizz are possibly playing Grayson Allen and Brandon Clarke tonight who are not in the DK player pool but could cause Bruno or Rabb to not dress and that is the midnight game.

    Somebody claimed the top eight spots last night on DK.

    That would be nice but you got to guess correctly and miss the inactives.

    the problem is the lack of desire from the teams of releasing starting lineups before lock….time and again they’re not released until about 5 mins after.

    Agree.

    Like with the Bulls. The guards we would want to play are Coby White (ankle) and Shaq Harrison (cut) and Walt Lemon (cut). So I’m gonna play Justin Simon who does not have an ankle injury and who was not recently cut by the team. He seems the safest and at a discount.

    Also some people on DK will report on the in game scoreboard which posts the starting LUs…I got lucky with that last night and got off of Kenrich Williams who unlike Frank Jackson and Christian Wood was not previously listed as OUT.

  • gaelicgirl

    Starting to feel like I’m at a disadvantage by not having a smart phone. Trying to follow beat writers on twitter with my laptop is almost impossible, too slow.

  • dame_face_420

    Sounds like Harrison and Lemon still playing

  • kbsktbll88

    Dylan Windler is out for Cleveland
