Joel Embiid - NBA Injury News, Daily Fantasy Basketball, DFS Lineup Picks

We have our second consecutive busy night in the Association on Wednesday, with seven games on the docket. There are no shortage of big names on the injury report, but the good news is that the overwhelming majority of players on it at least have a 50/50 chance of suiting up.

This article will provide you with my daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for DraftKings and FanDuel on 11/29/23. Remember to monitor NBA injury news and our awesome new NBA injuries report tool as the slate can completely change before lineups lock.

DraftKings and FanDuel Guards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Tyrese Maxey, PHI at NOP – PG ($9,200 DK; $9,400 FD)

Maxey has frequently delivered returns befitting a five-figure-salary player this season, as seen in his averages of 47.3 DK/45.8 FD points per contest. The standout guard has actually been at his most productive on the road, and on Wednesday he faces a Pelicans team that's allowing 47.5 DK/46 FD points per game to PGs. New Orleans also ranks in the bottom 10 of the league in assists surrendered per home game (27.4), while Maxey is dishing out an impressive 7.9 dimes per road contest.

Cole Anthony, ORL vs. WAS – PG/SG ($6,700 DK; $6,400 FD)

Anthony has been providing excellent returns off the bench, and he's coming off having scored a season-high 30 points in 32 minutes against the Hornets on Sunday evening. The veteran guard is averaging a well-rounded 17.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 5.1 assists across 29 minutes over the last seven games, a stretch where he's shooting 38.5 percent from three-point range and averaging well over 30 fantasy points per game on both sites. The Wizards make for an excellent target, as Washington is surrendering an Eastern Conference-high 33.1 offensive efficiency rating to point guards and the fourth-highest to second-unit players (46.1). The Wizards are also yielding 53.8 DK/52.8 FD points per contest to ones, furthering Anthony's case.

Jaden Ivey, DET vs. LAL – PG/SG ($5,700 DK; $5,800 FD)

Ivey has been productive while drawing starts in each of his last four games, averaging 16.5 points (on 54.3 percent shooting), 4.3 assists, and 4.0 rebounds across 30.8 minutes per contest. The second-year wing has scored 34.9 or more fantasy points on each site in the last two contests as well, excellent returns on his current salaries. Ivey should be in for another solid allotment of minutes again Wednesday against a Lakers team surrendering 40.1 percent shooting from behind the arc, along with the fourth-most rebounds (7.3) and sixth-most assists (5.75) per contest to shooting guards.

ALSO CONSIDER: Devin Booker, PHO at TOR - PG/SG ($10,300 DK; $10,400 FD)

DraftKings and FanDuel Forwards - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

LeBron James, LAL at DET – SF/PF ($9,900 DK; $10,100 FD)

LeBron takes a questionable designation as usual into Wednesday due to his calf issues, but assuming he plays, he should be in a very good position to deliver strong returns on his salaries yet again. The future Hall of Famer can easily eclipse 40 fantasy points, at minimum, on either site any time he takes the floor, and the chances are even higher against a Pistons team surrendering 48.0 percent shooting to small forwards, along with the fifth-most points per game to the position (22.6).

Kawhi Leonard, LAC vs. SAC – SF/PF ($8,000 DK; $8,500 FD)

The Clippers have underachieved as a whole, but Kawhi has been about at his usual standards while averaging 38.3 DK/38.5 FD points per contest. Leonard has outpaced his current salaries on multiple occasions already, eclipsing 48 fantasy points on either site in four games. Los Angeles draws a matchup Wednesday against a Kings team on the second night of a back-to-back set and surrendering the third-highest offensive efficiency rating to power forwards (31.0), along with 51.6 DK/48.9 FD points per contest to the position. Sacramento is also conceding an elevated 48.5 percent shooting on the road, brightening Leonard's prospects further.

Jabari Smith Jr., HOU at DEN – PF ($6,100 DK; $6,500 FD)

Smith's salaries are particularly eye-catching when considering his recent performances, as he's averaging 16.3 points (on 58.5 percent shooting, including 44.4 percent from three-point range), 9.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks per game over the last four contests before a 16-point, nine-rebound, two-assist, one-steal effort Tuesday versus the Mavs. The second-year big had hit 34.8 fantasy points or more on both sites in three straight before Wednesday as well, and he just lit up Denver for 41.8 DK/39.5 FD points in their most recent meeting Friday.

ALSO CONSIDER: Paolo Banchero, ORL vs. WAS - SF/PF ($8,200 DK; $7,700 FD)

 

DraftKings and FanDuel Centers - NBA DFS Lineup Picks

Joel Embiid, PHI at NOP – C ($11,800 DK; $12,300 FD)

The case for Embiid basically writes itself, considering the big man is putting up over 60 fantasy points per game on either site. Embiid hasn't scored less than 64 DK or less than 61.9 FD points in four straight contests, and Wednesday's matchup could well facilitate more of the same. The Pelicans have a No. 21 ranking in offensive efficiency rating allowed to centers (34.0), as well as the fifth-most DK (58) and sixth-most FD (56.9) points per game to the position, as well as the fifth-most rebounds per home contest (54.8).

Jaren Jackson Jr., MEM vs. UTA – C/PF ($7,400 DK; $7,800 FD)

Jackson continues to shoulder a solid workload during the ongoing absences of Marcus Smart (foot) and Ja Morant (suspension), and he checks into Wednesday averaging 34.1 DK and FD points per contest. The big man has eclipsed 40 fantasy points on either site on four occasions already, making his salaries especially appealing. The matchup against the Jazz stands out as well, as Utah is allowing the second-highest offensive efficiency rating to power forwards (32.2), along with the third-most DK (53.2) and second-most FD (53.5) points per game.

Walker Kessler, UTA at MEM – C ($5,900 DK; $5,900 FD)

Kessler returned from an extended absence due to an elbow injury two games ago and has been impressive right out of the gate, averaging 12.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 2.0 blocks across just 23.5 minutes in that first pair of contests. Kessler worked up to 26 minutes in his most recent game against the Pelicans on Monday night, and he'll likely see another slight bump in that allotment Wednesday as long as he avoids foul trouble. The Grizzlies are also shooting an NBA-low 42.2 percent, including 39.2 percent over the last three games, which means there could be plenty of opportunities on the defensive glass for Kessler when he's on the floor.

ALSO CONSIDER: Isaiah Stewart, DET vs. LAL - C/PF ($5,600 DK; $5,700 FD)
