High Salary SF

Ben Simmons, PHI at ORL ($9,100): Simmons finished with 37.75 fantasy points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. He played only 25 minutes, which is a concern on Thursday as well. If the game is competitive, he’ll play enough minutes to at least hit value. But the Sixers are only playing for seeding right now and are unlikely to burn their guys out heading into the playoffs. The matchup is good one, but minutes are a concern and you might be better off taking one of the lower salary guys who will get guaranteed minutes. **

Taurean Prince, ATL at SAC ($7,200): Prince was down 20.75 fantasy points against the Jazz on Tuesday. It was an off-night against one of the best defenses in the league, so don’t be too concerned. He’ll have a big chances to bounce back on Thursday as the Hawks play one of the worst defensive teams in the league. Prince is still getting the bulk of the opportunities in Atlanta and he should make his way back over value in this one. ****

Kyle Kuzma, LAL at NO ($6,300): Kuzma had 39.5 fantasy points against the Pacers on Monday. He’s been over value in three of his last four. He had 33.25 fantasy points against the Pelicans on Feb. 14. It’s shaping up to be a big night for the Lakers if the Pelicans can’t get their legs under them in their third game in as many nights. They already struggle to defend the three-point line and Kuzma has the shooting to give them plenty of trouble from deep. Expect him over 30 fantasy points. ****
