CHI: Another team in full tank mode. The Bulls managed to lose to the Cavaliers last time out which is an impressive feat. Not sure what this organization is doing from the top to bottom, but Boylen and his turtle offense is not going to hold much water in today’s NBA. Pace up spot here against Brooklyn in what could be slightly competitive for possibly 3 quarters since the Nets are on a back to back.

Wendell Carter is still out so Lauri, Portis, Lopez, and a little Parker will handle the majority of the front court minutes. Minutes have been inconsistent to say the least, so Lauri is the only one I am really interested in. If Lopez gets another start he could see 25 or so minutes and at 4k does have some intrigue as well. In the back court the player I have the most interest in is Wayne Selden. He can fill up the stat sheet and should get plenty of opportunity to do so here. After his solid performance last game his price has come up to $4200, but he is still viable.

Tier 1: Lauri, Selden
Tier 2: Lopez
Tier 3:

BKN: The Nets played last night and lost to the Celtics yet still are in the playoff run with a record of 27-24. They have been banged up all season and the trend is continuing for this one as LeVert, Dinwiddie, Crabbe, and most likely Graham will all be out. Hollis-Jefferson got the start last game with Graham out and played well in his absence.

Speaking of RHJ, he will be a popular target in this one with his $3800 price tag if Graham is forced to miss this one too. Ed Davis at $4100 should also be popular as he’s been playing well of late. This is a pace down spot so remember to take that into consideration when thinking about rostering these Nets players. D’Angelo has been looking like a potential all-star this year and just dropped 25 real points in only 24 minutes against the Celtics. Not sure why he only played 24 minutes with those kind of numbers, but Kenny Atkinson does what he wants with is rotations.

Tier 1: RHJ (if Graham is out)
Tier 2: Davis, Allen, D’Angelo
Tier 3:
