Point Guard

Kevin Porter Jr. - Houston Rockets (vs. Boston Celtics)

The Houston Rockets will be without Nwaba, House, Wood, Wall, Gordon, and Tucker tonight against the Boston Celtics. The Celtics are favored by 11 points with a 221 O/U. I expect Victor Oladipo to take the reins and control Houston’s offense tonight. While I do expect the Celtics to cover, Porter Jr. becomes a must-play at such high projected usage paired with such mediocre salaries around the industry. The NBC Sports Edge NBA Optimizer has Porter Jr. projected for 33.3 Draftkings points at a salary of $5,000. Porter will be heavily involved in a win or a loss. Lock him in!

Shooting Guard

Terrence Ross - Orlando Magic (Miami Heat)

The Orlando Magic have serious injury problems. If Orlando wants to keep this game close, Ross will need to be aggressive and productive. Ross averages 13.6 field goal attempts per game. With Evan Fournier, Cole Anthony, Aaron Gordon, and James Ennis all confirmed out tonight, Ross becomes a no-brainer if available. The Orlando Magic are underdogs at +250 with a 208 O/U.

Other SG Option: Victor Oladipo - Houston Rockets (vs. Boston Celtics)

Small Forward

Jimmy Butler - Miami Heat (vs. Orlando Magic)

The Miami Heat will be without Bam Adebayo (knee) tonight. This injury opens up significant value on a Miami Heat team that is favored by - 7.5 points with a 208 O/U Courtesy of Pointbet.com. The Magic have injuries of their own with Evan Fournier, Cole Anthony, Aaron Gordon, and James Ennis all confirmed out. Terrance Ross is also questionable. Kelly Olynyk is the most significant benefactor considering these injuries but Butler will undoubtedly see increased usage with Bam sidelined. Butler will match up against Chuma Okeke and Terrence Ross (if available). These are not matchups that concern me. Look for Butler and Olynyk to exceed value tonight against a Magic team that allows their opponents to shoot 47 % from the field.

Other SF Options: KZ Okpala - Miami Heat (vs. Orlando Magic)

Power Forward

Kelly Olynyk - Miami Heat (vs. Orlando Magic)

As I mentioned above, the Heat will be short-handed against a hobbled Orlando Magic squad. Olynyk will start for Bam and has a tough task in maintaining Nikola Vucevic. Can he complete this task? I believe so. Olynyk is a solid defender capable of limiting Orlando’s All-Star center. At low salaries around the industry, Kelly Olynyk is my play of the day. The Miami Heat are favored by - 7.5 points with a 208 O/U Courtesy of Pointbet.com.

Other PF Option: Jae’Sean Tate - Houston Rockets (vs. Boston Celtics)

Center

Nikola Vucevic - Orlando Magic (vs. Miami Heat)

Can Vucevic and Ross keep a depleted Orlando Magic team afloat tonight? Yes, they most certainly can. I fully expect Orlando’s offense to run through Vucevic on the first unit, and Ross on the second unit. Both players work in either a two-man game or isolation, making them the perfect candidates to carry Orlando against the Miami Heat. The Heat are allowing the second-lowest field goal percentage in the league at 44.3%, but also allow 14.8 3-pointers made per game (second highest in the NBA). Vucevic carries massive upside at hopefully low roster percentages.

Other C Option: Justin Patton - Houston Rockets (vs. Boston Celtics)
