With the NCAA Tournament on the horizon, the NBA provides plenty of hoops to enjoy tonight with 11 games on the pro basketball schedule including a lot of cross-conference matchups and a few potential playoff previews. With 22 teams in action, there are tons of options to sort through as you put together your daily fantasy basketball lineup.  To help you find some of the best options, check out my FanDuel daily picks on the following slides.

Rosters will lock tonight, as usual, at the 7:00 PM ET tipoff of the two early games.  Most of the games start at 7:30 or 8:00, but some of the most intriguing games of the day are actually in the late time slot.  at 10:30 the red hot Jazz host the Wizards while a pair of 53-win teams meet in Oakland as Golden State hosts Atlanta in a matchup of the current #1 seeds from each conference.  Some of the other eye catching matchups include the Bucks hosting the Spurs after both teams played last night, the Heat hosting the Trail Blazers after knocking off the Cavs, and Russell Westbrook and the Thunder trying to hold off the Pelicans for the eight-seed as they host the Celtics who are in a playoff race of their own.

To highlight the best fantasy basketball options for tonight, I’ve listed my picks sorted by position on the following slides.  For each roster slot I have at least four selections with two high-priced options and two high-value options.  I’ve thrown in some bonus picks as well to help you find just the right fit for your lineup tonight. To see two of my lineups for FanDuel tonight, check out the final slide of this post.

With many teams on back-to-backs and the playoffs starting to come into focus, look for more players to get rested or get a break if they’re dealing with injury. Watch closely for players who are inactive since taking a zero can quickly end your fantasy night. To catch any updates and stay on top of the latest news, follow @FansidedFantasy on Twitter where I’ll also inform you of any changed I’m making to my lineup.

If you enjoy this post or are looking for our daily DraftKings coverage, make sure to bookmark our fantasy basketball hub where you can find all our DFS NBA coverage for the rest of the season. Each day, I try to post both a DraftKings and a FanDuel breakdown, so that you have a place to start your lineup for whichever site you decide to get your game on.

Lots to cover today, so let’s get right to my FanDuel Daily Picks for this Wednesday.
