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

Orlando (-9)  @ Charlotte    187 Total
ORL:  J. Nelson, J. Richardson, H. Turkoglu, R. Anderson, D. Howard
CHA:  DJ Augustin, G. Henderson, C. Maggette, B. Diaw, D. Diop

  • Dwight Howard has another great matchup tonight against a very weak Charlotte interior of DeSagana Diop and Boris Diaw.  It should be a big night for Dwight.
  • Gerald Henderson has moved back into the starting lineup and makes a nice daily play at home tonight.
  • Jameer Nelson has really been coming on lately.  I actually picked him up off the waiver wire in a few leagues lately.
  • Boris Diaw has the speed and range to limit Ryan Anderson’s perimeter game.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:  Dwight Howard
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Sleeper Pick:   Jameer Nelson

 

Atlanta @ Indiana (-7)   183 Total
ATL:  J. Teague, K. Hinrich, M. Williams, J. Smith, Z. Pachulia
IND:  D. Collison, P. George, D. Granger, D. West, R. Hibbert

  • Roy Hibbert has a pretty good matchup against a weaker Hawks center position.
  • Josh Smith should be the main source of offense for the Hawks tonight and makes a great daily cash game pick.
  • Joe Johnson is doubtful.  Kirk Hinrich should pick up the start.
  • Danny Granger has a much better matchup tonight than he did last night and should post a solid line.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Picks:  Josh Smith, Roy Hibbert

 

Houston @ Boston (-4.5)   188 Total
HOU:  K. Lowry, K. Martin, C. Parsons, L. Scola, S. Dalembert
BOS:  R. Rondo, R. Allen, P. Pierce, B. Bass, K. Garnett

  • Brandon Bass has been a useful daily fantasy play since his insertion into the starting PF spot.  Keep riding him as a cheap PF filler.
  • Paul Pierce could put up a nice line tonight at home against Chandler Parsons.
  • Rajon Rondo plays some of the best defense in the league, so Kyle Lowry could put up a weak line.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Pick:  Rajon Rondo

 

New Jersey @ Miami (-13.5)    198 Total
NJN:  D. Williams, D. Stevenson, M. Brooks, K. Humphries, S. Williams
MIA:  M. Chalmers, D. Wade, L. James, C. Bosh, J. Anthony

  • Chris Bosh will return tonight and should be well rested.
  • Brook Lopez is out with a sprained ankle.  He’ll be out for at least three weeks.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Pick:  Deron Williams

 

LA Lakers (-5.5)  @ Detroit    187 Total
LAL:  D. Fisher, K. Bryant, M. Peace, P. Gasol, A. Bynum
DET:  B. Knight, R. Stuckey, T. Prince, G. Monroe, J. Maxiell

  • Kobe looked just fine in his last game and makes a great play tonight against the Pistons.
  • Brandon Knight has a decent matchup against Derek Fisher/Steve Blake.
  • Andrew Bynum has a good matchup against Jason Maxiell.
  • Avoid Rodney Stuckey tonight.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Pick:  Andrew Bynum

 

New York @ Dallas (-2)   191.5 Total
NYK:  J. Lin, L. Fields, C. Anthony, A. Stoudemire, T. Chandler
DAL:  J. Kidd, V. Carter, S. Marion, D. Nowitzki, B. Haywood

  • Landry Fields’ minutes have been slashed lately.  There’s just too much competition for minutes at SG for the Knicks for any of these guys to be playable in daily games.
  • Brendan Haywood is questionable with an ankle sprain.  Ian Mahinmi would get the start if Haywood can’t go.
  • Tyson Chandler is probable with a sore wrist.
  • Jeremy Lin’s production is falling, but his daily fantasy price isn’t keeping up.  He’s become a really expensive risk.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:  Dirk Nowitzki
