High Salary C

Anthony Davis ($11,000): The Blazers have not done a terrible job on Davis. But other guys are killing them and Davis is still doing his usual thing of putting up points and rebounds. The Pelicans look unstoppable right now, and while they’ll lose at some point in the playoffs, it may not be against the Blazers. *****

Joel Embiid ($9,100): Embiid was listed as doubtful prior to Game 3, but ended up playing 30 minutes and finishing with 45.75 fantasy points. With Hassan Whiteside looking disinterested and no one else on Miami able to stop him or the Sixers offense, he should have another impactful game on Saturday. The only concern is minutes. ****

High Value C

Kelly Olynyk ($5,800): You can almost take your pick between Olynyk and Johnson at this point. Booth guys are going to play over Whiteside and they’ve each contributed in the last two games. Olynyk is the steadier hand, which is why I favor him over Johnson. ***

Steven Adams ($5,400): Adams was limited to 22 minutes in Game 2 due to foul trouble. Assuming he keeps his hands to himself better in Game 3, he’ll playing his usual 35-plus minutes and contribute with points and rebounds. With his minutes and this salary, he’s a good bet to at least hit value. ***
