Thursday night is going to be a light night in the association with only three games. Usually I’m not crazy about doing daily fantasy with such a short slate. I know some of you are, however, so I went ahead and came up with a lineup that you can use in your quest for domination on these daily fantasy streets.
Kemba Walker– Walker has scored at least 30 points and three of his last four games I expect him to feast on the Phoenix Suns
Russell Westbrook – for my money I don’t think anyone else is having a better season than Russell Westbrook. He’s averaging a triple double this season(!!!!!!) and has essentially put the Oklahoma City Thunder on his back. I think you should start him every night unless he’s hurt
Klay Thompson– with Kevin Durant out indefinitely for an injury I expect Klay Thompson to get many of those shots and opportunities as a result of KD’s absence
CJ McCollum – Even though he toasted my team earlier this year, all is forgiven. McCollum has his highest scoring after 2 games rest. As he will be coming off tonight.
TJ Warren – Good economy option, has scored 23 and 17 in his last 2 games. Warren has been getting more playing time and should produce nicely tonight.
Michael Kidd Gilchrist – Taking a bit of a leap with the Mike the Kid, but I think he will produce tonight. Gets good points from hustling. One of the reasons I’m not a fan of light nights like this from a fantasy perspective.
Taj Gibson – Off his trade to Oklahoma City, Gibson has averaged around the same production that he put up in Chicago. I am a big fan of Gibson especially at this price, as he tends to outperform his salary night in and night out.
Nikola Mirotic – In his last game, Mirotic got in foul trouble against Denver on Tuesday night. When he is on the floor, he should outperform and give you quality low cost production.
Javale McGee – McGee has not wowed especially in the stat sheet. But expect him to also benefit from Kevin Durant’s absence. One caveat is that he only got 2 minutes of playing time in the Monday loss to the Wizards, so this is a bit of a gamble.
