There is a lot of injury situations that you should be monitoring tonight. From Ben Simmons in Philadelphia to the Golden State Warriors stars, these injury situations will lead to plenty of hidden gems. If Simmons doesn’t play, make sure you roster TJ McConnell, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, and Joel Embiid. If either Kevin Durant or Stephen Curry sit, Klay Thompson, Omri Casspi, and Shaun Livingston (if Curry doesn’t play) would become must starts.

This is only a first reaction to my favorite players on a given slate. For an in-depth researched premium lineup, purchase one below.

Point Guard: $9,000 Damian Lillard- This price feels way too low for Dame D.O.L.L.A. He is nearly averaging 5x value at this price point and should be able to attain at least that tonight. Ownership on him always is very low and that only makes him a more enticing play. The New York Knicks are one of the worst teams at defending opposing point guards and that bodes well for Lillard. He would also receive a small boost if Kristaps Porzingis and his rim-protecting misses the game. However, I would play both TJ McConnell and Shaun Livingston instead of Lillard if the injury situations presented above play out accordingly.

Shooting Guard: $4,500 Caris LeVert- I expect the Houston Rockets to absolutely slaughter the inferior Brooklyn Nets. Because of that I will only be targeting Houston Rockets in tournaments, but LeVert should be the beneficiary if the game gets ugly. He tends to play more minutes and has a higher usage in blowouts, but even if the game stays relatively close he is still a strong play given the matchup. The Houston Rockets play at a very fast pace and James Harden is one of the worst defenders in the league. That bodes well for LeVert putting up some big numbers. He is an excellent value play and it wouldn’t be hard for him to hit 8x value. LeVert is a viable play in both cash games and tournaments.

Small Forward: $6,700 Robert Covington- Covington is the only player on the Philadelphia 76ers capable of slowing down LeBron James and that should lead to plenty of minutes for him. Because of his volatile style of play, Covington tends to be a better tournament play than a cash game play. Even if Simmons suits up I like Covington a lot, but he would become even more intriguing if Simmons sits.

Power Forward: $6,200 Thaddeus Young- Young thrives in these fast paced games and this one sets up to be just that. He can stuff the stat sheet and can end up having a big game even if he doesn’t do that well offensively. Aaron Gordon struggles to guard the perimeter and Young spends most of his time out there. He has a very high floor, but has a lofty ceiling as well.

Center: $9,700 Joel Embiid- Regardless of whether Ben Simmons plays or not, I absolutely love Embiid in this spot. He should play even harder tonight as he will be going up agains the best basketball player in the world. The Cleveland Cavaliers have been horrible at defending opposing bigs this year and that bodes well for Embiid. He doesn’t seem to be on a minutes limit anymore and that means he has all the potential in the world.
