Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG/SG) – $8,200

  • Middleton is still out with a wrist injury and Giannis was ruled out this morning. He wasn’t on the injury report so it’s definitely a surprise. Jrue has been solid all year and with Mid and Gia off the floor, Jrue leads the team with the highest usage rate of 35%. Lock for me on both sites.

Zach LaVine (CHI) (SG) – $7,200

  • Another injury play as DeMar is out today and LaVine is in. LaVine sees the biggest boost with DD off the court and has a usage rate close to 35% as well.

Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $5,000

  • Bobby Potus is priced as if Giannis is in. He should draw the start who becomes a must play in this matchup.


Jrue Holiday (MIL) (PG) – $8,000

  • Lock on both sites.

Tyus Jones (MEM) (PG) – $4,300

  • Ja Morant has just been announced that he will miss the next 2 weeks which makes Tyus Jones a lock on DK for his price tag. I am also going to play him on FD for 5.1k. Tyus has always been a solid option whenever Morant is out so I expect another good night from him.

Cash Play Considerations


  • Buddy Hield (IND) (SG/SF) – $5,600
  • Tyus Jones (MEM) (PG) – $5,100


  • Nikola Jokic (DEN) (C) – $11,400
  • Zach LaVine (CHI) (SG) – $7,700
  • Bobby Portis (MIL) (PF/C) – $6,500

Key Injury News

  • Tyrese Haliburton – questionable
