BIG Friday night of NBA action on the schedule. I’m posting these a bit early, so I might come back later on when some more injuries are confirmed. However, if you need to set your lineups early – there are some solid sleepers that you can roll with.
For those of you waiting for College Football picks – I will be posting Saturday game picks later on today. I was too busy to do the weekday games. Sorry.
G – JOSE CALDERON
Blew up last game with Melo out, and looks like that will be the case again. If he gets 30+ minuets again, he’s a good option. The other NY Knicks including J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert are viable again tonight if Melo is confirmed out.
He’s not horrible if Mo Williams is out again. Nevermind, looks like Mo is playing.
G – DEVIN HARRIS
Played 40 minuets last game. Looks like Jameer Nelson is out for sure, and if Raymond Felton is out again – he’s a viable option.
G – D.J. AUGUSTIN
If his price hasn’t risen too much – he’s still a good option in relief of Brandon Jennings who appears to be out again. As a side note, I like Josh Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe in this matchup because they just played Milwaukee and they struggled on the inside against those players size.
F – DEMARRE CARROLL
With Thabo Sefolosha out again, Carroll has been getting plenty of minuets and could be in line for a boost again tonight.
Sacramento Kings v Spurs
Looks like D-Cousins is out. If Gay and Collison are out again too, Omri Casspi and Ramon Sessions remain a solid start. Jason Thompson could be a complete dud, but should get plenty of minuets.
With Roy Hibbert likely out again, David West makes his return, but might be fairly priced already. Luis Scola is not a horrible option if he’s still in the starting lineup. Rodney Stuckey is a good option because the team lacks a 2-guard so he’s gets plenty of run. Finally, Donald Sloan is hot/cold but with George Hill out again, he could be an option.
