Only two games on the NBA schedule tonight: Houston @ New York and Oklahoma City @ Golden State. The only team not coming off a back to back are the Warriors. One key factor for daily lineups is if James Harden plays for Houston. He missed last nights game. It’s also the return to NY for Jeremy Lin. Linsanity has been on fire as of late and if Harden misses another game, Lin will probably be in a lot of lineups.
SG/SF Thabo Sefolosha – $3,300
Played 35 minuets last night. Will never have a huge scoring output, but can save you some bucks so you can get all of the nights studs in your lineup.
SG/SF Iman Shumpert – $4,000
Rumored to be in trade offers, perhaps it gives him a little extra boost. The Garden should be popping tonight with Lin coming back in to play, so look for the Knicks to have some juice. If Harden plays, I might look elsewhere for a sleeper, as Shumpert may have to guard him and Harden can get people in foul trouble at will.
SF Omri Casspi – $3,600
Had a strong game last night and with some of the injuries in Houston he could be in line for another 25 minuets tonight.
PF/C Andrea Bargnani – $4,800
Cheap price for Bargnani, but he probably will be matched up against Howard. Ouch. If he can stay out of foul trouble he will have open looks on the offensive end. Don’t expect a game like he had last night, but he should get some shots up early.
