DraftKings NBA picks March 6: Porzingis could win this

We have a big ten game slate for our DraftKings NBA tournaments tonight. There are a lot of stars out. Which ones are worth using? Which ones are limited? Let’s check the injury report before we get into the meat of this.

Out: Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist), Kyrie Irving (shoulder), Zach LaVine (quad), Deandre Ayton (ankle), Jaylen Brown (hamstring), Gordon Hayward (knee), LaMarcus Aldridge (shoulder), Malcolm Brogdon (hip), John Wall (Achilles), Kelly Oubre (knee), Evan Fournier (elbow), Clint Capela (heel), Jonathan Isaac (knee), Jaren Jackson (knee), Brandon Clarke (quad), Jeremy Lamb (knee), Ish Smith (hamstring), Cam Johnson (illness), Jalen Brunson (shoulder), Garrett Temple (ankle), Justise Winslow (back), Kris Dunn (knee), Jakob Poeltl (knee), Dennis Smith (concussion), J.J. Redick (hamstring), Luke Kornet (ankle), Tyler Herro (foot), Darius Bazley (knee), Andre Roberson (knee), Al-Farouq Aminu (knee), Evan Turner (F-Minnesota), Skal Labissiere (knee), Marco Belinelli (illness), Kevin Durant (Achilles), Meyers Leonard (ankle), Darius Miller (Achilles), Zach Collins (shoulder), Jusuf Nurkic (leg), Rodney Hood (Achilles), Frank Kaminsky (knee), Dwight Powell (Achilles), Grayson Allen (hip).

Questionable: Luka Doncic (illness), Tim Hardaway Jr. (shoulder), T.J. Warren (leg), Mitch Robinson (hamstring), Victor Oladipo (knee), Dorian Finney-Smith (hip), Chandler Hutchison (shoulder), George Hill (groin), J.J. Barea (ankle), Doug McDermott (toe), JaKarr Sampson (hip).

The Hawks expect to have Dedmon back tonight, but still no Capela. The Pelicans expect to have Kenrich Williams available for the first time in almost two months. That shouldn’t affect the rotations much though.

For the first time in eons, none of my four lineups cracked 250. Hey, the cash line didn’t either, so I wasn’t the only one no the wrong side of things. It was frustrating that three of my lineups missed the cash line by fewer than five points. I did well with Curry and Kings guards, but I had no exposure to Tobias or Powell. One of the two would have put me well into the money.

frost197 took it down with a 327, the lowest to win a DraftKings NBA tournament this season. He built with Lowry, and Curry and had both Tobias and Powell while getting big value out of Harrell, Gary Harris, Zubac, and Mike Scott.

Just because you don’t see someone on here doesn’t mean they aren’t a good play. I only have so much room, and I’m not going anyone a favor if I recommend more than half of the players at a position. If you have a feeling about someone, by all means, follow that. I mostly follow numbers and trends.
