Here are the best high salary and value picks for DraftKings fantasy basketball on Saturday, April 8.
He’s back. Kevin Durant will play and start tonight for the Warriors and head coach Steve Kerr said he will not have any type of minutes restriction. Stephen Curry is doubtful at the time of this writing, and you have to figure that the Warriors will want to get Durant all the playing time he can handle to get him back in game shape and ready for the NBA playoffs. Damian Lillard and the Blazers still need to win to ensure a playoff berth, so there are some juicy storylines for DFS NBA tonight. DraftKings has split the slate again, so this piece will cover the main slate, which does not include the three early games.
