Wednesday night in the NBA featured many exciting matches, with a number of close finishes and standout performances. Nikola Jokic He led the way with an impressive 63.7 Fantasy Points. The big guy had a great game, scoring 31 points, grabbing 11 rebounds and handing out 13 assists. The king himself was near, LeBron James, who put up a fantasy 60.1 with 32 points, 8 rebounds and 9 assists. Rounding out the top three was Utah Jazz straight ahead Laurie Markkanenwho ran the monster game with 58.9 fantasy points and a Soul crush sticker Ivica Zupak.
Those three players were on top, but here’s the latest fantasy from last night’s nine-game roster.
Hornets (122) vs. Rockets (117)
The same ankle that has caused him to miss 24 games so far this season. Hopefully Ball is okay and choosing DSJ is just a precaution, but fantasy directors should prepare for an absence of several weeks. Terry Roser And PJ Washington It should also see a slight uptick in scoring and use if the ball misses time.
Memorizes Mark Williams on your watchlist. He finished this game with a season-high 17 points, 6 rebounds and 5 blocks in just 18 minutes.
The Rockets continue to cement their stats as the worst team in the NBA, however Alperin will survive And Galen Green It went to 53.4 FP and 53.5 FP, respectively. Green tied his career high with 41 points and a KJ Martin He has 11 hit points with seven boards and three steals. Still worth airing in the 12-team leagues with him Kevin Porter Jr. outside, plus Jabari Smith Jr He injured his ankle and did not return.
In the deep leagues, the rookie Tari Eason You could get more minutes if Smith isn’t a fit.
hooks (130) in Mavericks (122)
The Usual Suspects did well for the Mavericks in Wednesday’s loss to the Hawks, but I think it’s worth noting Dorian Finney Smith He started and played 34 minutes in his return. He fell just shy of a double-double with 9 points, 9 rebounds, and 3 assists, but deserves a look in the deep leagues now that he’s back getting his starting minutes.
The Hawks had eight players in double figures, however Dijonte Murray Atlanta led with 46.4 ppg and had its fourth 30-point night of the season. Clint Capella I came off the bench again but it was a fantastic night better than Mr. Okongwu In spite of Okongwu Play more minutes on the floor. Timeshares could be better for Capella Principals, but given calf problems, seniors will likely continue to split time. Keep Okongwu in the meantime, ranking 32 in every game over the past 14 days.
Wizards (116) in Nix (105)
Bradley Bell He came back from a five-game absence and had an 18/4/4 streak, but Kyle Kuzma And Christaps Porzingis He did most of the damage to wizards. Stay tuned Dillon Wright, also. He’s quietly averaged 85th per game this season and is a steal specialist. Give him a look in the deep leagues if you’re also looking for help.
for nix, Galen Bronson Cleared the 30-point mark for the fifth time in eight games. Mitchell Robinson left after nine minutes with an injury, and Emmanuel Quickly Scored 18 points off the bench for New York. Still sticking with the fantasy leagues, the Knicks primarily run a tightrope rotation.
heat (124) in swans (98)
The swans didn’t show up on Wednesday and were overcome by the heat. Bam Adebayo Dropped 26 points with 8 rebounds, 1 assist and three assists for 44.1 FP. Kyle Lowry He’s back in the lineup, but I’m going to keep broadcasting Victor Oladipo to keep Gabe Vincent And Max Strauss On watchlists whenever lori or Jimmy Butler Sitting is imperative for injury management purposes.
Pacers (106) at thunder (126)
Andrew Nimbard He had a team-high 18 points with 7 assists, five boards and 2 steals, totaling 39.5 ppg. Miles Turner He had six blocks but had a lackluster offensive game. The Pacers got deep into the bench, but there are no important takeaways here other than keeping it Nimbard And McConnell She was listed while Haliburton was out (elbow and knee).
The Thunder have moved into ninth place in the Western Conference and one game away from being .500. Lugnitz Dort And Josh Gede Both are doubles (the seventeenth jedi of the season) and Isaiah Joe Scored 23 points off the bench. Please don’t get excited, though; It’s too low on the depth chart to consider it fantasy.
Darius Garland It was a must in DFS with Donovan Mitchell (groin) It lost the contest, and it didn’t disappoint, going for 55 FP, the highest of any PG on the list. Evan Mobley He was all over the place, cashing in double 12 of the year with three shares and 43.5 ppg. Caris Levert It was also an attractive DFS play without Mitchell and scored 38.8 ppg. finally, Isaac Okoro He was perfect from the field and had a season-high 17 points and two blocks. He’s widely available in the fantasy leagues and averaged 31.5 minutes in the previous two games.
clippers (103) In Jazz (126)
Short-handed clippers were no match for Markkanen and Jazz. Norman Powell was 39.3 FP, while Ivica Zupak He hit his 16th double-goal of the season. I will not fault you for falling Marcus Morris Sr. or Terrence Man Yet these ineffective offers.
Walker Kessler He continued his rise, as he delivered his ninth double-double with two blocks, while Mike Conley Just missed, he finished with 17 points, nine dimes, and 38.3 RBI. Something worth watching Jared Vanderbilt‘s Play (or not). It’s 189th per game over the past two weeks. His fantasy stock is running low quickly.
MVP Jokic put a clinic on the Timberwolves’ lesser team than Gobert, notching his 14th career double-double of the season. Bruce Brown He played 32 minutes off the bench and scored 16 points, along with 5 rebounds and 4 assists. He’s missed four of his five free throws, but he deserves to hold onto the team’s 12-plus league starts, with Michael Porter Jr‘s Minutes are still volatile.
Wolves hold their first leg in straight sets so Joubert will likely be back for Thursday, but if he doesn’t, Naz Red And Kyle Anderson Will be able to continue live broadcast against wild birdsThe front yard is small.
Kings (116) in Lakers (115)
The Kings narrowly escaped without a victory Domantas Sabonis in the lineup. Daron Fox He unsurprisingly led the Kings with 31 points and 44.6 FP. Keegan Murray Recorded the first double-double of his career and Richawn Holmes He analyzed impressively for Sabonis, recording 16 points and 11 rebounds. Tree Lyles He played the most minutes off the bench for Sacramento and deserves a look in the deep leagues for those who need points, threes and rebounds. He’s finished 59th in every game over the past two weeks.
It’s hard not to feel bad for LeBron at this point. a You take a mistake in the closing seconds It cost the Lakers a chance at the game, and now they sit in 13th place in the Western Conference. Dear Gabriel He is cannibal Thomas Bryant‘s Word time which is not good in mind Anthony Davis Coming back around the All-Star break.
A decent night of NBA basketball, and we’re lucky enough to catch it again on Thursday!
