• Chicago Bulls @ Philadelphia 76ers

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Bulls: OUT: Lonzo Ball (left knee); QUESTIONABLE: Alex Caruso (right ankle sprain), Javonte Green (right knee soreness)

    76ers: OUT: Joel Embiid (left foot soreness)

    Stream of the Game

    With Embiid sidelined and Paul Reed seemingly out of the rotation, Montrezl Harrell is the player to target in the hopes that he can continue to deliver with defensive stats alongside his typical production in the points and rebounds department. On the Bulls side, Ayo Dosunmu is your target and should see an additional boost in value if Caruso sits out. Patrick Williams is your other low-end category league streaming target.

    Portland Trail Blazers @ Indiana Pacers

    Game Time: 7:00 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Trail Blazers: OUT: Justise Winslow (left ankle sprain), Nassir Little (right femoral head fracture); QUESTIONABLE: Jerami Grant (left quad contusion), Gary Payton II (right ankle sprain); PROBABLE: Jusuf Nurkić (illness)

    Pacers: OUT: Daniel Theis (right knee surgery), Kendall Brown (right tibia stress reaction)

    Stream of the Game

    Drew Eubanks has played more of late which may have been in large part due to Nurkić still not being 100% from the non-Covid illness he’s been dealing with. Eubanks could offer some low-end appeal for rebounds and blocks on good efficiency. Aaron Nesmith and Jalen Smith are your low-end targets on the Pacers with Nesmith having the slight edge due to the starting role that he’s taken from the former Suns big.

    Brooklyn Nets @ New Orleans Pelicans

    Game Time: 7:30 pm ET

    Injury Report

    Nets: QUESTIONABLE: T.J. Warren (left rib contusion)

    Pelicans: OUT: Zion Williamson (right hamstring strain), Brandon Ingram (left toe contusion), EJ Liddell (right ACL); QUESTIONABLE: Larry Nance Jr. (right shoulder soreness), Willy Hernangómez (left ankle sprain)

    Thrive Prop Plays of the Day

    James Harden O7.5ASTS (80 PTS) – Last time this line went under? December 5th. Since then, Harden has racked up 12 games with 8+ assists. I think that this trend continues.

    Bam Adebayo O35.5PTS+REB+ASTS (105 PTS) – Bam has been playing well lately, averaging 26 ppg, 10.3 rpb and 2.3 apg over the last two weeks. That is enough to cover only with points and rebounds, and he has just done that in 6 games out of the last 9 over this line.

    DFS Pillar Play

    Jimmy Butler

    Position: PF

    Salary: $8,700

    I don’t always love to play Jimmy in DFS because of his low shooting games, but he has a great matchup today vs. the Suns. This should be a close one, so he should play plenty, and the Suns allow the 2nd most points and 5th most rebounds to opposing PFs.

    DFS Value Plays (<$5,000 Salary)

    Jeremy Sochan

    Position: PF

    Salary: $4,600

    Wait, why is Sochan on the pillar plays and not on the value plays? I’m that high on him! No Vassell, J-Rich and KBD questionable. I know he had an awful game without Vassell on the 4th, but I think his surgery means a different approach from the Spurs. They should prioritize his development and give him the ball more, and that should translate to fantasy-value. I could be wrong, but I think Sochan is going to have a great (and inconsistent) 2nd half of the season. I hope it starts today with this great matchup vs. Detroit.

    J-Rich (if he plays), Branham and Romeo Langford are also nice fill-in plays for Vassell.
