We have an eight-game slate to kick off our NBA week, and there are great options across the board. We are about halfway through the NBA season, and there are a ton of injuries going around. This has resulted in a number of high-priced players who are listed as questionable, or game-time decisions, so you have to be ready to pivot if new information breaks before rosters lock.

Guards

Kyle Lowry (TOR): $7,600 @ BKN
Lowry is up against the Brooklyn Nets tonight, who are fourth worst in the league against point guards, putting Lowry in a great spot. The Nets play at a very fast pace and are weak defensively, so anytime they are on the slate you want to roster players against them. In the one game Lowry has played against the Nets this season, he put up 53.5 DraftKings points in just 30 minutes. That is well over one fantasy point per minute and clearly this is a very favorable matchup for him. Lowry has a 22.7% usage rate and is averaging 1.12 fantasy points per minute.

Victor Oladipo (IND): $8,600 vs. MIL
Oladipo is back from his injury, and in his first game he put up 54.5 DraftKings points in just 24 minutes. According to reports, he will have no minutes restrictions and will be good to go moving forward. Before his injury, Oladipo was priced up at $9,600 on December 23rd. His price has dropped $1K, so we want to buy in on him when he is lower priced than he really should be. Oladipo has a 32.8% usage rate and is averaging 1.28 fantasy points per minute. This game has a total set at 214 points, which means we should be seeing plenty of points going around, putting Oladipo in a great spot.
