PHX: Despite getting the first pick last year Phoenix is in position once again for another top pick. They are in no hurry to rush back Ayton as he looks to miss another game. Melton and Warren will also be out for the next few weeks so there should be plenty of value in this Suns team.

The injuries have opened up time for Holmes, Okobo, and Josh Jackson to get more run and a chance to prove themselves while simultaneously keeping the tank rolling. Kelly Oubre has also benefited in their absence. Tough matchup still with the Spurs, but some of these plays are cheap enough to warrant playing. My priority is going to be Holmes who at 5k still has solid upside with Ayton out.

Tier 1: Holmes, Booker (GPP)
Tier 2: Okobo, Oubre, Jackson
Tier 3: Bridges

SA: The Spurs look good and that’s with Derozan being out the last 2. Gay and Gasol are back so they are getting healhier now. As 13 point home favorites the blowout potential is real, but I never like predicting blowouts.

With Derozan on the sideline I first look to LMA and Gay as my targets. LMA tends to dissappear in the most inopportune times, but he has also been playing at a high level. Gay should get around 30 minutes here and at 6k he seems fairly priced. Bertans also should get a minutes bump sans Demar and is worth a shot on at his $4200 salary.

Tier 1: LMA, Gay
Tier 2: Bertans
Tier 3: Forbes, Belinelli
