It certainly has been a fantastic start to the NBA season! Regardless of the quality of basketball, it’s always good to have hoops back on the TV. There are 10 games on tap for Friday night’s slate, and hopefully, they’ll be competitive as two of the three games on Thursday ended in blowouts.

With 20 teams in action, there will be lots of ways to build out a winning lineup. Let’s take a deeper look into Friday’s slate to see if anything stands out.

Injury Report

Core Plays

Mitchell Robinson (C- NYK): $5,600 DraftKings, $5,900 FanDuel
Robinson is a better value on FanDuel for tonight’s game due to his shot-blocking ability but will get another opportunity to play massive minutes with Nerlens Noel continuing to miss time. In fact, he only exceeded 34 minutes twice last season, so there is huge upside here. The man known as ‘Blockinson’ put up 11 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, and two blocks for 40.9 FanDuel points in the Knicks’ season-opening win against the Celtics.
