With just two days left in February, the NBA season is entering crunch time for the playoff races. You can also tell its getting late in the season by the continuing mounting injuries that almost every team is having to deal with including some big-name starts who most likely won’t be taking the floor tonight. There are still plenty of fantasy basketball options, though, with 14 games on the schedule on the busiest night of the week in the NBA. To help you find the best options in the deep lists at each position, check out my FanDuel Daily Picks on the following slides.
We get started tonight at 7:00 PM ET as the Cavs visit Indiana coming off of last night’s big win over the Warriors. In other early Eastern Conference matchups the Hornets visit the Celtics, the Magic take on the Hawks, the Pistons host the Knicks, and the Wizards face the Sixers. In the East vs West games, the Warriors look to bounce back as they visit the Raptors, the Wolves take on the Bulls, Houston hosts the Nets, and the Heat visit New Orleans. If you haven’t overladed after all those games, the Western Conference has some nice late games with the Clippers facing the Grizzlies in a potential playoff preview, the Spurs continuing their rodeo trip in Sacramento, the Nuggets hosting the Jazz, and the Thunder playing in Portland.
In the next few slides, you can find some of the players from the incredibly full schedule who I think are in good matchups tonight and should be able to step up and help your fantasy team. Each slide focuses on a position giving at least four options at each position. Two of the options are high-salary studs, and the other two are high-value options who are cheaper but should still be productive. With so many games to pick from, I also had to throw in some bonus names to consider. I suggest blending the high value and high salary options with some of your own personal favorites to create your own custom lineup.
To show you how I’m blending things together, I’ve included two of my FanDuel lineups on the final slide of this post. Come back later today for my DraftKings. In order to keep up with all our Fantasy Basketball coverage, make sure to drop a bookmark at our Fantasy Basketball hub. and follow us on Twitter @FansidedFantasy for all the latest injury news and lineup updates as availability changes. If injuries affect my lineup, I’ll send out updated rosters before lineups lock tonight at 7:00 PM ET. I always try to make sure I am online 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 so many games tonight, it’s time to get right to our FanDuel daily picks for this Friday, February 27.
