The start of March Madness isn’t the only basketball to watch tonight as the NBA has four games on tap tonight even though they don’t have their usual spotlight from TNT.  There are still plenty of opportunities to get in the fantasy basketball daily game tonight, so to get started click through my DraftKings daily picks on the following slides.

The two megastars on the board tonight are Anthony Davis who leads the Pelicans into Phoenix and James Harden who welcomes in the Nuggets to Houston.  Harden has been scuffling a little bit lately and Davis also has some injury concerns, but both could also go off tonight.  If you’re looking for non-big name options, the other two games on tap for tonight feature the Knicks welcoming in the T-Wolves and the Lakers hosting the red-hot Utah Jazz.

Even with a limited eight-team field tonight there are a number of good options from across the salary spectrum at each position. I’ve listed my favorite options on the following slides with at least three picks per position with at least one representing a high-priced star option, one representing a mid-range solid option, and one representing a low-cost sleeper option. To see how I’m combining my picks into a lineup, check out the final slide of this post where there are a pair of DraftKings lineups I’m rolling with in different competitions.

At this point in the season, look for more players to get rested, so watch closely for players who are inactive due to injury or just in order to get a recovery day. The T-Wolves have been dealing with a number of injuries while the Pelicans and Suns could also be missing key pieces tonight.  The Jazz and Timberwolves are on the second half of back-t0-back games while the Pelicans, Knicks, and Nuggets are playing the first of their two games in the next two nights. To catch any updates and stay on top of the latest news, follow @FansidedFantasy on Twitter where I’ll do my best to keep you up to date on anyone not playing tonight and let you know if there are any adjustments to my lineups listed at the end of this post.
