NYK: J. Lin, L. Fields, C. Anthony, A. Stoudemire, T. Chandler
CHI: D. Rose, R. Hamilton, R. Brewer, C. Boozer, J. Noah
- CJ Watson is out. More minutes for Derrick Rose.
- Joakim Noah is probable after recovering from an illness over the weekend. Omer Asik goes back to the bench.
- Luol Deng is out with a wrist injury. Ronnie Brewer should get the start.
- Rip Hamilton is out with a shoulder injury. Kyle Korver should pick up the start at SG.
- Carmelo Anthony should have a much easier time with Luol Deng is out.
- Jared Jeffries is doubtful.

Charlotte @ New Orleans (-6.5) 182.5 Total

NOR: J. Jack, M. Belinelli, T. Ariza, G. Ayon, C. Kaman
- Carl Landry is doubtful.
- Emeka Okafor is still out.
- Be careful with Chris Kaman. He’s trade bait and could sit at any time if a trade is in the works, so check his gametime status.
- Daily Fantasy Tournament Sleeper Pick: Chris Kaman
Washington @ San Antonio (-14) 205.5 Total
WAS: J. Wall, J. Crawford, C. Singleton, T. Booker, J. McGee
SAS: D. Green, G. Neal, R. Jefferson, T. Duncan, D. Blair

Detroit @ Utah (-6.5) 192 Total
DET: B. Knight, R. Stuckey, T. Prince, G. Monroe, J. Maxiell
UTA: D. Harris, G. Hayward, J. Howard, P. Millsap, A. Jefferson
- Raja Bell is questionable with some kind of personal issue. Gordon Hayward should pick up the start at SG with Josh Howard picking up the start at SF.
- Al Jefferson is questionable with a personal matter. Derrick Favors could get a start tonight and makes a great daily fantasy play.
- Look for Greg Monroe to be a better play if Al Jefferson is out.
- Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick: Greg Monroe
- Daily Fantasy Tournament Sleeper Pick: Derrick Favors (if Al Jefferson is out)
Minnesota @ Phoenix (-3.5) 198 Total
MIN: L. Ridnour, W. Johnson, M. Webster, K. Love, N. Pekovic
PHO: S. Nash, J. Dudley, G. Hill, C. Frye, M. Gortat
- JJ Barea is a gametime decision. He could hold some late season value with Ricky Rubio out.
- Ricky Rubio done with an ACL. That wasn’t great news to return to, my fantasy teams now need a new PG.
- Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick: Steve Nash
Boston @ LA Clippers (-5.5) 186.5 Total
BOS: R. Rondo, R. Allen, P. Pierce, B. Bass, K. Garnett
LAC: C. Paul, R. Foye, C. Butler, B. Griffin, D. Jordan
- Kenyon Martin is out. Reggie Evans should see a few extra minutes.
- Caron Butler is really slumping and his back may be bothering him more than he’s letting on. Avoid him for now.
- Chris Paul is dealing with a nose injury that could limit him just a little.
- Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick: Paul Pierce
