Point Guards

Ish Smith (DET): $5,500 at ORL
Ish Smith takes over the point guard starting job with Reggie Jackson (ankle) now out for at least six weeks or as long as eight weeks. Smith should see plenty of minutes while getting a plus matchup here as the Magic allow the fourth most fantasy points to opposing point guards this season. It makes sense to get Smith in your lineup.

Damian Lillard (POR): $8,800 vs. PHI
Lillard is coming off a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury but will be all systems go for Thursday’s favorable matchup with the 76ers. Even though this game isn’t the highest projected game of the night, it certainly has the makings of being the highest scoring game of the night. Expect Lillard to return to form against the 76ers. Shabazz Napier will move off the fantasy radar.
