The Pelicans are without CJ McCollum and Brandon Ingram tonight so we will look straight towards Zion. He should be the first player you lock in cash games.
After Zion, Jose Alvarado and Trey Murphy are also must plays. Alvarado has been starting with CJ injured and provides a relatively safe floor. If Murphay starts, he has a great chance to play 30+ minutes who becomes an excellent value play.
Another value play on DraftKings is Nowell for 3.1k. The Timberwolves are down a lot of players, most importantly Jordan McLaughlin being out. This opens up minutes for Nowell who is too cheap to fade.
Embiid is the last core play but he is currently questionable. If active, he is the best spend up option on DraftKings. With Maxey and Harden still out, we should see Embiid take over for the team again.
