GiannisAntetokounmpo: Great effort tonight guys! #GreatWin #FearTheDeer #HeyYo . Lisa Ann: @G_ante34 you have helped my #FantasyBasketball Team have a solid season, Thank YOU!
As tip-off time approaches, keep an eye on the Minnesota Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin (hamstring), who is questionable tonight after missing back-to-back games. If he sits again, forward Chase Budinger ($2,200 salary, 4.4% of cap) should make a great source of cap relief. Budinger is averaging 31.63 fantasy points in two starts in place of Martin, and he comes at the minimum salary.
There is a healthy mix of big names and value picks available tonight, but we recommend checking on the status of New Orleans Pelicans G Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Toronto Raptors G Kyle Lowry (back) leading up to tip-off time. Evans is questionable tonight, and Lowry left last night’s game early and said afterwards that he doesn’t plan on rushing back. If Evans sits out tonight against the Rockets, G Eric Gordon ($4,700 salary, 9.4% of cap) should make a solid addition to rosters. He delivered 34.00 FantasyScore points with Evans sidelined Sunday. And tonight, Houston will be missing its top perimeter defender, Patrick Beverley (wrist).
