Daily fantasy basketball is unbelievably easy to play. Introduce your mother to the game and share the fun.
Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James, Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden and Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin all remain must-start options at FantasyScore as their playoff series resume Sunday.
For additional sources of cap relief, make sure to keep an eye on the status of Chicago Bulls power forward Pau Gasol, who is questionable for Game 4 against the Cavaliers with a hamstring strain. If Gasol sits, power forward Taj Gibson ($4,100 salary, 8.2% of cap) should make a solid fill-in option.
G Derrick Rose, Bulls vs. Cavaliers
$6,500 salary | 13.0% of cap
Rose has been a thorn in Cleveland’s side this series, averaging 43.42 fantasy points.
C Dwight Howard, Rockets at Clippers
$7,000 salary | 14.0% of cap
He had his worst game of the series in Game 3 and still finished with 42.50 fantasy points.
F Jimmy Butler, Bulls vs. Cavaliers
$6,800 salary | 13.6% of cap
Butler is averaging 41.17 fantasy points in the postseason, and he delivered 45.00 in Game 3 Friday.

G Jamal Crawford, Clippers vs. Rockets
$4,400 salary | 8.8% of cap
Even with Chris Paul back in the lineup, Crawford still topped 30.00 fantasy points for the third straight game.
C Joakim Noah, Bulls vs. Cavaliers
$6,400 salary | 12.8% of cap
He is averaging just 20.25 fantasy points in the first three games of the series, and there is a clear gap between Noah and the other two high-priced centers available.
G Kyrie Irving, Cavaliers at Bulls
$7,500 salary | 15.0% of cap
Irving has failed to reach 30.00 fantasy points in back-to-back games as he deals with a foot sprain.
