High Salary SF

Giannis Antetokounmpo, MIL at GS ($11,200): The Warriors are 22nd against the position in their last 15 games, but Kevin Durant is schedule to return and he always has something extra against other top small forwards in the league. Antetokounmpo is averaging 36.1 fantasy points in his last three games against the Warriors. He needs 47.6 fantasy points to reach value on Thursday. Durant not being at 100 percent could work in Antetokounmpo’s favor, but he’s a slight risk at this salary. ***

Kevin Durant, GS vs MIL ($10,800): Durant is schedule to make his return in this one, but check his status before making any decisions. Assuming he plays and he’s the lone All-Star on the court for the Warriors, he should do that thing where he scores a lot of points, picks up plenty of rebounds, and dishes out a handful of assists. Unless there are lingering injury issues or he’s just a bit rusty, 50-plus fantasy points are in play for Durant on Thursday. *****

Otto Porter Jr., WAS at DET ($7,200): Porter Jr. has 32.9 fantasy points in 23 minutes against the Spurs on Tuesday. He’s been over value in three of his last four. He needs 30.6 fantasy points to reach value on Thursday. If John Wall plays, that will open up the floor a bit more for Porter Jr., but also take opportunities away from him. He’s averaging 46.6 fantasy points in three games against the Pistons this season. Even if Wall plays, Porter Jr. should be over value. ***
