Game of the Day

Portland Blazers vs Milwaukee Bucks

The Portland Blazers and Milwaukee Bucks have been pushing the pace this season, ranking 10th and first in the NBA in pace. This game features a Vegas total of 227.5 points.

Damian Lillard has been ruled out tonight. C.J. McCollum will take over as the focal point of the offense. He'll be locked into big minutes with the highest usage rating on the team. Anfernee Simons will likely draw the start for Lillard if he's able to suit up. He played 36 minutes in his last game, but is questionable tonight. If Simons is also out, Rodney Hood, Kent Bazemore, and Carmelo Anthony will all play a larger role in the offense.

Hassan Whiteside is questionable tonight, but he'll make an outstanding option if he's healthy. If he's out, Nassir Little, Mario Hezonja, and Skal Labissiere would all see a bump in value. Assuming Whiteside plays, Little if the only player of that trio that boasts any value.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is the focal point of the Milwaukee offense, and he can be used in all leagues tonight. Eric Bledsoe and Brook Lopez are the other two high upside options with Khris Middleton injured. Both of them make outstanding options with only two games on this slate.

Donte Divincenzo, Sterling Brown, Wesley Matthews, and George Hill are all play minutes in the mid-20s. DiVinceenzo makes the best option of the group, as he has found success on a per-minute basis. The other three can be considered in tournaments for their price tags. Pat Connaughton, Robin Lopez, Kyle Korver, D.J. Wilson, and Ersan Ilyasova are expected to find minutes in this game, but none should be considered tonight.

New Orleans Pelicans vs Phoenix Suns

The New Orleans Pelicans and Phoenix Suns are another pair of teams that love pushing the pace. They currently rank fourth and ninth in the NBA in pace, respectively. This game boasts a Vegas total of 234 points.

New Orleans continues to deal with injuries, as Josh Hart and Derrick Favors have been ruled out, while Lonzo Ball and Jahlil Okafor are questionable. If Ball is ruled out, Jrue Holiday and Brandon Ingram will gain value. If that's the case, they can both be used in all leagues. If Ball is playing, Holiday will see a decrease in value, while Ingram can still be used with too low of a price tag.  If Okafor is ruled out, Jaxson Haynes and Nicolo Melli will gain value tonight.

JJ Redick and Kenrich Williams are both expected to play minutes in the high-20s or low-30s tonight. They are still reasonably priced, and make solid options in this matchup on a two game slate. E'Twaun Moore, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, and Frank Jackson will all find some time on the court, but they can all be avoided if Ball is in the lineup.

Phoenix is also dealing with injuries, as Aron Baynes has been ruled out, while Ricky Rubio is doubtful to play. Devin Booker is likely to run point more tonight, making him an elite option on this slate. Tyler Johnson and Jevon Carter are both slated for minutes in the 20s, and they can both be considered.

Kelly Oubre will likely play a large part in the offense, and he has flashed tremendous upside. Dario Saric and Frank Kaminsky will see more minutes with Baynes injured. Saric makes the better option, but both can be used tonight. Cameron Johnson has also flashed tremendous upside in somewhat of limited minutes. He's still too cheap. Mikal Bridges is also expected to see minutes in the 20s, and he can be considered if you need a salary relief option.
