Fantasy Basketball Daily Pre-Game Report for Tuesday, February 28

Hope you guys enjoyed the All-Star break, I certainly did.  It’s a 33 game sprint to the playoffs and only about a month until fantasy basketball playoffs start, so it’s time to make up ground if you are sitting on the playoff bubble.

I’ll be posting on most weekdays throughout March, but I’ll be switching over to baseball on opening day.  I’ll probably only be posting once or twice a week in April.

Friday’s NBA Schedule, Probable Starting Lineups, Lines, Injuries and Tournament Picks

Charlotte @ Toronto (-7)   183.5 Total
CHA:  K. Walker, R. Williams, C. Maggette, B. Diaw, B. Biyombo
TOR:  J. Calderon, D. DeRozan, J. Johnson, A. Johnson, A. Gray

  • DJ Augustin is slowly working himself back into game shape after missing time with a foot injury.  He should be back to full speed just after the all-star break.  It will be interesting to see how the Bobcats divide the minutes now between Augustin and Kemba Walker.
  • Jerryd Bayless is probable, but I’d avoid him until the ankle injury heals completely. 
  • Linas Kleiza is out.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:  Kemba Walker

 

Milwaukee @ Orlando (-7.5)    192 Total
MIL:  B. Jennings, S. Livingston, C. Delfino, E. Ilyasova, J. Leuer
ORL:  J. Nelson, J. Richardson, H. Turkoglu, R. Anderson, D. Howard

  • Drew Gooden is out.  John Leuer will get the start.
  • Dwight Howard should have a huge game with Gooden out.
  • Jameer Nelson is playing well after missing a few games and I’ve seen him floating around on several waiver wires.  He should probably be grabbed if you need assists.
  • Stephen Jackson remains a huge daily risk.  Just when you think he’s back getting a steady 3o minutes a night, he ends up stuck to the bench.  Just hold him and hope for a trade.
  • Ersan Ilyasova is getting a rare start, but he matchup isn’t very good.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:  Dwight Howard

 

Sacramento @ Detroit (-3.5)   190.5 Total
SAC:  T. Evans, M. Thornton, J. Salmons, J. Thompson, JJ Hickson
DET:  B. Knight, R. Stuckey, T. Prince, G. Monroe, J. Maxiell

  • Rodney Stuckey has really been heating up lately and should be played in daily games since his salary has dipped due to his mediocre early season.
  • Stuckey breaking out isn’t going to help the fantasy value of Brandon Knight.  He’s slumping right now and you have to wonder if it’s the old rookie wall.
  • DeMarcus Cousins is out.   JJ Hickson should pickup the start.  Chuck Hayes will have to put in some extra minutes also.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Picks:  Greg Monroe, Rodney Stuckey

 

Miami (-9.5) @ Cleveland   199 Total
MIA:  N. Cole, D. Wade, L. James, C. Bosh, J. Anthony
CLE:  K. Irving, A. Gee, O. Casspi, A. Jamison, S. Erden

  • Anderson Varejao is out 4-6 weeks with a wrist injury.  Semih Erden will start and Tristan Thompson will also see an increase in minutes.   Neither player is very attractive in daily games right now.
  • Mario Chalmers made it through practice Thursday and is probable.  Norris Cole would get the start if Chalmers can’t go.
  • Kyrie Irving is looking good in his return from a concussion and looks safe to use again in daily games.
  • Anthony Parker is out.  Alonzo Gee should get the start.
  • Daniel Gibson is doubtful.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:  Kyrie Irving
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Sleeper Pick:  Semih Erden

 

Dallas @ Philadelphia (-3)   179.5 Total
DAL:  J. Kidd, V. Carter, S. Marion, D. Nowitzki, B. Haywood
PHI:  J. Holiday, J. Meeks, A. Iguodala, E. Brand, N. Vucevic

  • Delonte West is out until mid-March with a finger injury.  Jason Terry and Vince  Carter will have to pick up the slack.
  • Jason Terry is out Friday.  
  • Roddy Beaubois is out.
  • Spencer Hawes is out.
  • Daily Fantasy Tournament Value Pick:   Vince Carter
