Welcome back. The NBA has been gone too long and if you are like me, there has been a void in your life that the Olympics, MLB pre-season, and college basketball just cannot fill. Luckily, the Association is back and we have six games on what looks to be a very appealing slate. IF there is one thing I am keeping consistent about all my lineups tonight, it's rostering Russell Westbrook. His price is high, but he should be the most productive player tonight.

Below you will find our daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 2/22/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options, to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too.

Don't be afraid to ask a few questions in the chat room or on Twitter, @HalfCourtJester. Let's get rolling.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Milos Teodosic  - PG, LAC @ GSW ($3,600)

While this is going to be my favorite value play of the night, it's important to note that the "play-it-safe" crowd will not be a fan. Last game, albeit over a week ago, Milos Teodisic played just 16 minutes. He managed to produce, but he does have competition ahead of him. The best part about playing Teodisic is that there isn't a better passing guard on the team. Austin Rivers, Avery Bradley, and Lou Williams are way ahead when it comes to usage, but Teodisic playmaking should give him an extra bump in minutes, allowing him to cruise over his projected.

Courtney Lee - SG, NY @ ORL ($4,200)

Once again, another Courtney Lee recommendation. It's hard to pass over a player that is capable of filling a stat sheet, but is so engrained in a role playing, more defensive status, that production isn't guaranteed. He will, like usual, get plenty of opportunities. He's more than capable of having a 30-point outing, but it's unlikely when considering his shooting ability. The price and matchup are ideal.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Danilo Gallinari - SF, LAC @ GSW ($6,300)

With his price floating around the middle of the road and proof he can play alongside Tobias Harris, there no reason NOT to play Danilo Gallinari versus the Warriors. He's a talented shooter and has a thing for keeping games with the Warriors close. Their defense is still severely lacking, but it won't change Gallinari from being productive and shooting the snot off the ball tonight.

Lauri Markkanen - PF, CHI vs. PHI ($6,400)

This was a decision between Dario Saric and Lauri Markkannen, and Markkannen is the hands-down favorite. With the Bulls fully investing themselves in the youth movement, it starts with Markkannen. He has been one of the most productive rookies this season and he will be in for a test against the 76ers.

Also Consider: Kelly Oubre - SF, WAS @ CLE ($4,700)

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Enes Kanter  - C, NY @ ORL ($7,500)

At first, his price seemed a little daunting, but it makes sense since the matchup is incredibly favorable towards Enes Kanter. Kanter has been posting 20-20 games with ease and...to go back on my own points, it's becoming clear the matchup is irrelevant when it comes to Kanter. Play him with hopes he posts another monstrous stat line.
