After a busy weekend and a big Monday, the NBA slows down a bit tonight with just four games on the schedule in basically a “turbo” style format as the games start at 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, and 8:30.  Even with only eight teams taking the floor there should be some good games and plenty of daily league fantasy basketball opportunities.  To help you get your FanDuel lineup set, check out my FanDuel Daily Picks on the following slides.

There are definitely some star options even in our limited pool tonight with some solid matchups.  We start things off at 7:00 PM ET with a East-West matchup in Washington as the Warriors continue their road trip taking on the Wizards. At 7:30 PM ET the Cavs visit Detroit to face the Pistons followed at 8:00 by Russell Westbrook and the Thunder hosting the Pacers.  The latest game of the day is in Dallas where the Mavs host the Raptors who will be playing their fourth game in the last five nights.

Putting your lineup together shouldn’t be too difficult tonight, although there are a few gaps in the salary structure.  To find the players who I think are set up for success, scroll through the following slides where you’ll find at least four options per position. For each slot I’ve included a pair of high-salary stars along with a pair of high-value options.  The “value” plays are cheaper but should still be able to provide solid production. To make your lineup, mix some high value and high salary options with some of your own personal favorites so that you can cheer your team to victory tonight.

So that you can see how I’m doing that, I’ve included two of my FanDuel lineups on the final slide of this post. Later today, check back at our Fantasy Basketball hub for DraftKings picks and continuing coverage every day.

As we get closer to tonight’s tip-off, you will want to stay up to date on the latest injury and availability updates to keep your lineup in place to succeed. One way to keep up with the latest is to follow our Fansided Fantasy feed on Twitter @FansidedFantasy. I always try to make sure I am on with the latest in the 30 minutes leading up to the first tip time when rosters lock on FanDuel. I’ll be happy to take your questions throughout the day, but make sure to check back at 6:30 for any late-breaking injury news.

With that intro material out-of-the-way, let’s get right to our FanDuel Daily Picks.
