DraftKings NBA picks December 14: Now what will Harden do?

We have eight games in the Association on Saturday, but Phoenix and the Spurs tip early in the desert, leaving seven games for our main DraftKings NBA tournaments at a later 7:30 eastern start time. We got Luka. We got Harden. The Bulls value and the Washington “defense.” This is going to be a fun one! One player is already said to be resting. What else do we know so far?

Out: Kyrie Irving (shoulder), Russell Westbrook (rest), Fred VanVleet (knee), Mo Wagner (ankle), Caris LeVert (thumb), Thomas Bryant (foot), Otto Porter (foot), Jordan McRae (finger), Reggie Jackson (back), Eric Gordon (knee), Gerald Green (foot), Hamidou Diallo (elbow), Dion Waiters (suspension), Matt Thomas (finger), Wilson Chandler (suspension), Kevin Durant (Achilles), Nicolas Claxton (hamstring), Dragan Bender (ankle), Dylan Windler (leg), Nene (hip), Khyri Thomas (foot), Andre Roberson (knee), Turd Ferguson (hip), Chandler Hutchison (shoulder), Cristiano Felicio (wrist), Andre Iguodala (personal), C.J. Miles (wrist), John Wall (Achilles).

Questionable: Lou Williams (calf), Patrick Beverley (concussion), Justise Winslow (back), Goran Dragic (groin), Brandon Clarke (oblique), Isaiah Thomas (calf), Paul Millsap (quad), Delon Wright (thigh), JaMychal Green (back), Grayson Allen (ankle), Landry Shamet (ankle), Kyle Korver (back), Isaac Bonga (concussion), Stanley Johnson (groin), Tyson Chandler (illness).

Morant is “expected” to play just as Russ is “expected” to sit, but this is the NBA. Who knows what will actually happen. Don’t be shocked if the Clippers run a skeleton crew on the second night of a back to back. I’m expecting PG to play, but Kawhi may sit with the rest of the backcourt. Don’t be shocked if Giannis rests on the back to back after missing a game earlier in the week either. There’s still a lot up in the air for tonight.

I had five busts with Embiid, Harden, and Sabonis. Hell, even Sabonis was a bust. It was mostly a disaster of a night.

Six1006 took it down with a modest 364.75 DraftKings points. He chased the value of Melton and Mike Scott just like I did, but his Clippers stack with KAT, Jackson, and Warriors value resulted in a big win.
