Dragic's appeal is a little higher at the reduced price

There are just two games in the NBA tonight, and all four teams are in the playoff picture.

Golden State has little to play for with the top seed clinched. This would be point guard Stephen Curry's fifth game in seven days and a great time to rest him with three home games to go after tonight. If this holds true, Shaun Livingston ($3,000) becomes a great start at just 6.0% of your cap. With just four games remaining for most teams, it's imperative to check back before tip-off to check the starting lineups.

C LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors
$8,500 salary | 17.0% of cap

He's one of the best two options on FantasyScore tonight, and he's leaps and bounds the leader of the light center pool. However, he's on the back end of a back-to-back slate after being a surprise scratch Monday. Aldridge has posted 40 or more fantasy points in five of the last seven games he has played. If he sits, Meyers Leonard ($2,800, 5.6%) posted 44.3 fantasy points in Aldridge's absence Monday.

Start

G Goran Dragic, Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls
$5,800 salary | 11.6% of cap

Dragic has heated up of late, averaging 21.3 points and 5.7 assists per contest over his last three. He posted 21 points and four assists against the Bulls earlier this season. Speaking of the Bulls, they're in the middle of the pack at defending the point. On a light night, Dragic's appeal is a little higher at the reduced price.

G Aaron Brooks, Chicago Bulls at Miami Heat
$4,000 salary | 8.0% of cap

Derrick Rose made his much-anticipated return from a knee injury last night, and he's highly unlikely to lace 'em up again tonight. Brooks averaged 26.8 fantasy points his last two games and has posted 22 or more fantasy points in eight of nine games. He's a good low-end guard choice in this matchup.

F Luol Deng, Miami Heat vs. Chicago Bulls
$5,000 salary | 10.0% of cap

A few days ago, Deng had the possibility of missing the rest of the season with a new ailment. Instead, he posted a 30-point night on FantasyScore Tuesday. He's probable tonight and has averaged 16 points and 10 boards in two games against his former team this year. Despite the tough matchup, Deng has some promise for the price.

Bench

F Nikola Mirotic, Chicago Bulls at Miami Heat
$5,000 salary | 10.0% of cap

Mirotic had a run of dominance while the team was depleted due to injuries. Most of the team has returned to health, and Mirotic hasn't registered 24 points on FantasyScore in the last four games. He should be avoided at this price unless one of Chicago's forwards is rested.
