It’s the busiest night of the week in the NBA tonight with ten games on the schedule. Most of the games are scheduled to start early in the evening with just a few late games.  With 20 teams taking the floor, there are plenty of options to consider as you assemble your daily fantasy basketball lineup. To pinpoint some of the best options, check out my FanDuel Daily picks on the following slides.

The nationally covered games tonight both shape up to be good games and potential playoff games featuring four teams from the Western Conference. The first of those two games tips of at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN as Russell Westbrook and the Thunder take on the Clippers.  In the late game, the focus shifts to Portland where the Blazers welcome in “the Beard” and the rest of the Rockets in what should be a high-scoring shootout. In other intriguing matchups, the Heat host the Nets, the Grizzlies visit Boston, and the Timberwolves head to the desert to face the Suns.

With stars and sleepers coming from all those matchups and from 20 teams, there are plenty of options for tonight, but getting the right one can sometimes be tricky. To see who my favorite options are, check out my picks on the following slides. Each slide focuses on one position, and I’ve give at least four options. At least two of those picks coming from the upper echelons of the salary structure, and at least two are designed to represent more value since they cost much less but should still produce. If you want to see how I’m blending my stars and sleepers together, check out the final slide of this post where I have posted two lineups that I’m putting money on tonight.

As is always the case, my picks and lineups are subject to change throughout the day as news breaks of injuries and availability for tonight’s games. Last night many owners had to take a zero from Manu Ginobili or Gordon Hayward due to late scratches which are sometimes unavoidable.  Some of those mistakes can be avoided, though, so catch any updates and stay on top of the latest news leading up to when the rosters lock at 7:00. One way to do that is to follow @FansidedFantasy on Twitter. I have a busy schedule today, but I’ll do my best to be online throughout the day and make sure I’m on for the last 30 minutes before rosters lock to give you any important late-breaking adjustments.

Each day, I try to get both a DraftKings and a FanDuel article posted, so that whichever way you play these picks can help you have a place to start as you assemble your roster.

There is plenty to cover today, so let’s get right to our FanDuel Daily Picks.
