OKC: The Thunder are on a roll after extending their win streak to 5 with a win over the Bucks. That completed a 3 game home stand as they head to Orlando to try and continue the success. Adams rolled an ankle and had to leave the last game, but ultimately returned and played over 30 minutes. There hasn’t been any word of him missing, but keep an eye out for news regarding his status in case there are any updates.

Westbrook and PG are only $800 a part from each other, but rightfully so. PG has been playing at a high level and has almost as high of a ceiling as Westbrook of late. I still prefer Westbrook over PG here. He should get matched up with Fournier and some Augustin and Vooch at the rim isn’t a great rim protector. Westbrook hasn’t been attacking the rim as consistently as he’s settled more for outside shots, but if he wants to he should have no problem getting there in this one. PG is more a cash play especially at this price versus Russ for GPPs. He is definitely in play, but I would rather pay $400 more for Embiid or even pay up for Russ in this same game instead. Ferguson has been playing well of late and scoring in double digit real points in 5 of the last 6 games. At only $3700 he is in play.

Tier 1: Russ
Tier 2: PG, Ferguson (punt), Adams, Grant, Noel
Tier 3:

ORL: The Magic started off hot but have now come back to Earth as they sit at 20-30 and 4.5 games out of playoffs. This is a big pace up spot for the Magic here, but the Thunder are also one of the best defensive teams in the league.

Vooch is too pricey for me in a matchup against Adams. Yes he’s been playing great, but Adams is someone I don’t target centers against. Gordon could be relied on more offensively in this one with Vooch being limited by Adams. He is $6700 and has shown upside in pace up spots so I will have some exposure here. Augustin sparks a bit of interest too at $4600. He will get the minutes and with his salary staying cheap he still has upside.

Tier 1:
Tier 2: Gordon (GPP), Augustin
Tier 3: Fournier
