3 MUST HAVES
Nurkic – He played only 25 minutes in last nights game because of foul trouble. He should be fresh tonight to play in the 30’s, especially against this Sacramento front court. He’s taken double digit shots in 9 out of his last 11 games while also cleaning up the boards and swatting shots.
Rozier – Anytime Kyrie missed, Rozier immediately comes into play. Not only is Kyrie out, but Marcus Smart has been ruled out as well. In his last 2 starts when Kyrie was out, Rozier averaged 36.8 fantasy points per game. At his price tonight, that’s almost 10x.
Holiday – With Kyle Anderson going down last game against Miami, he’s expected to miss about 2 weeks. Holiday should step into the starting 5 tonight, at min price salary. We saw Holiday put up respectable numbers when he saw minutes in Chicago, so given the opportunity tonight he should be able to do well.
Capela is OUT tonight, and possibly for the next month. Chriss should see some run at Center tonight, but this also means even more usage for Harden. Give a bump to Tucker and Rivers as well.
Mitchell (play him every game!)
