There are just three games tonight in what is the season finale for a few teams. It will be tricky maximizing lineups as players could exit games early to rest for the playoffs. The player pool is light, but several midrange options have promise.

G Eric Bledsoe, Suns vs. Clippers
$7,100 salary | 14.2% of cap

Bledsoe is a very hot-and-cold fantasy player, but he has been a lot of the former of late. He averaged 36.8 fantasy points in his last two games against teams in the playoff picture. With Chris Paul and John Wall firmly placed into the playoffs, Bledsoe is the best backcourt option Tuesday.


F Evan Turner, Celtics vs. Raptors
$5,500 salary | 11.0% of cap

Turner has been solid in his role as point guard on the team the second half of the season. He has posted at least 32 FantasyScore points in six of the last eight games, including three outputs in the 40's. Toronto is in the lower half of the league the last 10 games against the point. On a day devoid of many high-end options at forward, Turner stands out among the most fruitful.

G Louis Williams, Raptors at Celtics
$3,900 salary | 7.8% of cap

The sharp-shooting guard has posted at least 25 points on FantasyScore seven times in nine games. The Raptors are a half-game out of the third seed, and they could opt to go for it or rest players. Williams should be involved either way. His price on top of the low tier, and Boston's ineffectiveness against the two the last 10 games make Williams a solid flyer.

C Roy Hibbert, Pacers vs. Wizards
$4,600 salary | 9.2% of cap

Hibbert's last three games are some of the best basketball he has played in months. He notched double-doubles in all three and eclipsed 32 fantasy points in two of the three. The Pacers can clinch the eighth seed with a win, and Washington has the potential to rest regulars since they're locked into the fifth seed. The center pool is pretty thin, and Hibbert's prospects are good.

G Ramon Sessions, Wizards at Pacers
$2,500 salary | 9.2% of cap

Sessions filled in quite well for Wall last week with 32.5 and 25.3 fantasy points. Wall figures to be limited at best tonight in the season finale. Sessions is worth the flyer for the price if Wall sits.


PG Chris Paul, PF Blake Griffin, C DeAndre Jordan, Clippers at Suns
$9,000 salary | 18.0% of cap $8,800 salary | 17.6% of cap $8,400 salary | 16.8% of cap

The Clippers clinched home court in the first round of the playoffs Monday night, and there is very little reason to give their "Big 3" normal playing time Tuesday. We'd steer clear unless something comes out before the game saying otherwise.
