Need to Know:

Since there’s only 4 teams back in action tonight after the all star break, there isn’t much injury or player news. However, there still is definitely some value to be had on this limited slate!

Grayson Allen Out: Without Allen in the lineup, Desmond Bane ($4,000 DK and $3,500 FD) and De'anthony Melton ($4,600 DK and $6,000 FD) have seen increased opportunities to play and score. Against a Wizards team that plays the fastest pace in the NBA and gives up the second most points to opposing teams, I could imagine both of these guys returning value. It’s also tough to look away from Ja Morant ($7,800 DK and $8,000 FD), even though we have him projected to be owned at 68.6%; He’s in a great matchup against a Washington team that’s terrible at guarding players like Morant (he went for 35-10-5 last time out against the Wiz).

Thomas Bryant, Ish Smith still Out: This is old news, but I wanted to highlight Robin Lopez ($3,400 DK and $4,200 FD), because I think he’s quite underpriced and has a solid chance to return value in what should be a very fast paced game tonight between the fastest paced team (WAS) and the 10th fastest pace team (MEM) in the NBA. Since he’s priced so low, Lopez doesn’t need to do too much to return value tonight.

Dallas Mavs: No injury news here, and not much great value either. The most value I can see is with the Point Guards, Luka ($10,700 DK and $11,000 FD) and Brunson ($5,700 DK and $5,400 FD), who are going up against a Spurs team that is the 5th worst team in the NBA at guarding opposing PG’s.

Devin Vassell Out: Not very impactful news here for SA. However, what is important in this game is that the Spurs are finally completely healthy. It’s unclear what the starting lineup will be tonight, but make sure you keep an eye on it and get a guy like Trey Lyles ($4,100 DK and $4,700 FD) into your lineup if he makes the start; he’s cheap and should have a great chance of returning value if he starts.

Ownership: Keep in mind that because tonight is such a small slate, the ownership numbers will be skewed. Don't be scared off by a guy with 30% ownership.
