Tonight’s NBA action features a 10 game slate. There are some intriguing match-ups, as injuries have taken a toll on certain teams. Tonight will be a night where I will be digging deep to find value in certain players. Good luck to all and hope this will help guide you to a successful night!

My favorite player of the night is Bradley Beal at $8,400. John Wall has been ruled out for the game, and even though Austin Rivers ($3,400) is starting at PG for the Wizards tonight, I like Beal to stuff the box score tonight against a terrible Atlanta Hawks team. Volume is key when I make my selections, and Beal will get plenty of shots up tonight.

LeBron James is also one of my anchors in my lineup as well. The Spurs are giving up an insane 129.5 pts/game against their opponents. I also like building my lineups, and knowing I have King James playing in the last game of the night, that gives me hope.

Miles Bridges appears to be getting a significant role with the Hornets first-team unit now, and at $4,100, I will slide him into my lineups. JJ Barea at $5,000 is also nice to me, as Dennis Smith appears to be sitting out, and Barea has the chance to score in bunches against the Pelicans.

I like the Bucks against the Pistons tonight, the Pistons tend to give up decent numbers to opposing centers. Brook Lopez is priced at $5,200 and offers plenty of value. I honestly like Giannis tonight too, but went with LeBron. Khris Middleton at $7,000 will also be there.

People will be going heavy Hawks/Wizards tonight I am sure, so be prepared for that. Outside of Beal, I did not feel safe going with these guys tonight. John Collins would be a solid choice at $6,300 if you have to go there.
