Tuesday’s NBA Schedule, Probable Starting Lineups, Injuries and Daily Fantasy Tournament Picks

Utah @ Indiana (-9)   190.5 Total
UTA:  D. Harris, R. Bell, G. Hayward, P. Millsap, A. Jefferson
IND:  D. Collison, P. George, D. Granger, D. West, R. Hibbert

  • Devin Harris and Earl Watson are locked in a timeshare, neither player is worth using.
  • Danny Granger could post a solid line against Gordon Hayward.
  • George Hill is targeting February 23rd for his return.  Darren Collison and Paul George will continue to log big minutes while Hill is out.
  • Jamaal Tinsley is out.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Value Pick:  Danny Granger

 

Charlotte @ Boston (-14)  176.5  Total
CHA:  K. Walker, R. Williams, B. Diaw, T. Thomas, B. Biyombo
BOS:  R. Rondo, R. Allen, P. Pierce, K. Garnett, J. O’Neal

  • Brandon Bass is probable and expects to play Tuesday.  Chris Wilcox and Jermaine O’Neal will both see a few less minutes.
  • Bismack Biyombo got the start for the Bobcats in their last game and could get the nod again tonight.  He’s a great pickup in keeper leagues.
  • DeSagana Diop is questionable.
  • Gerald Henderson is still out for the Bobcats.  Reggie Williams will continue to hold down the SG spot until he returns.
  • Marquis Daniels is out.
  • Keyon Dooling is out.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Value Pick:  Paul Pierce

 

Cleveland @ Miami (-13)  196.5 Total
CLE:  K. Irving,  A. Gee, O. Casspi, A. Jamison, A. Varejao
MIA:  M. Chalmers, D. Wade, L. James, C. Bosh, J. Anthony

  • Anthony Parker is out.  Alonzo Gee should get the start at SG and is worth a play in daily leagues.
  • Tristan Thompson is out.
  • Daniel Gibson is out.
  • Cleveland waived Mychal Thompson, just in case you couldn’t find him on the daily draft board.
  • Ramon Sessions could get a chance for some extra minutes Tuesday.
  • Mike Miller is probable.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Sleeper Pick:   Alonzo Gee

 

Phoenix @ Milwaukee (-7)  195 Total
PHO:  S. Nash, J. Dudley, G. Hill, C. Frye, M. Gortat
MIL:  B. Jennings, S. Livingston, C. Delfino, LRMAM, D. Gooden

  • Jared Dudley returned from an injury and he appears locked in as the starting SG for the Suns.
  • Be careful using Grant Hill, the knee is still limiting him.
  • Channing Frye got hot in his last game and could be getting ready to put his shooting slump behind him.
  • Drew Gooden might have a tough time with Marcin Gortat.
  • Stephen Jackson is still getting DNPs.  Avoid him and give Shaun Livingston a look if you need SG help.
  • Steve Nash is dealing with a sore shoulder on the second of a back to back.  Be safe here and double check his status close to tipoff.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Sleeper Pick:   Drew Gooden

 

Sacramento @ Minnesota (-6.5)  No Total
SAC:  T. Evans, M. Thornton, J. Salmons, J. Thompson, D. Cousins
MIN:  R. Rubio, L. Ridnour, W. Johnson, D. Williams, N. Pekovic

  • Kevin Love will begin serving his two game suspension tonight.
  • Derrick Williams could get the start tonight with Love out.  Michael Beasley is probably a decent daily play also.
  • Keeper league owners should definitely have Isaiah Thomas on their waiver wire watchlist.  He’s a pickup if he has a couple more solid games.
  • Chuck Hayes keeps trying to play through his shoulder injury, but he should probably just shut it down and let it heal.  Avoid him.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Sleeper Pick:   Nikola Pekovic

 

Oklahoma City (-2) @ Golden State  206 Total
OKC:  R. Westbrook, D. Cook, K. Durant, S. Ibaka, K. Perkins
GSW:  S. Curry, M. Ellis, D. Wright, D. Lee, A. Biedrins

  • Thabo Sefolosha is questionable.  Daequan Cook would likely get the start if Sefolosha can’t play.  James Harden will also see a tick up in minutes.
  • I like David Lee in this game against the weak interior of the Thunder.
  • Nate Robinson is probable.
  • Daily Fantasy Cash Game Value Pick:  Stephen Curry
