Daily Fantasy NBA News and Injury Updates for FanDuel and DraftKings - 4/11/17

Welcome to the daily updates and injury news article. We'll try and update it right up to line-up locks with as much information as comes across our desks. Let's get to it!

Last night's picks can be found here, so you can wrap your mind around what you need to be looking at before lineups lock tonight.

By the way - we keep our projection system updated with all of the changes as they occur throughout the day right up until lineup lock. Every day. If you want access to that system so you can cut out a lot of the research element, click the button below!

What We Know

Russell Westbrook, Taj Gibson, Andre Roberson, and Doug McDermott are all resting against the T--Wolves

Well, this is the first game of the year Westbrook has sat, so we really don't know what's going on. With Roberson also out, Victor Oladipo will see a ton of minutes and shots. Enes Kanter is my other favorite guy and he should see at least 12 shots. Semaj Christon could also see some minutes but I don't think he's neccesary on this slate.

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are out against the Lakers

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins shoot about 110% of the Pelicans shots, so this will be interesting. Alexis Ajinca and Check Diallo will both see over 24 minutes and are very interesting cash game plays. Dante Cunnigham and Jrue Holiday will also see an uptick. Jordan Crawford will both see a ton of minutes.

Devin Booker has been ruled out against the Kings

Booker loves to shoot, so you can look at Ulis and Warren here. Both guys should see at least 35 minutes and hit value with ease in cash.

D'Angelo Russell isn't expected to play for personal reasons

Jordan Clarkson and Tyler Ennis will both see at least 30 minutes and shoot over 15 times. Nwaba and Ingram may also see a few extra shots and minutes, but aren't neccesarily a must on this slate.

The "Every Lineup" Guys

Victor Oladipo

With Westbrook out, you have to imagine the ball will be in his hands a ton. Westbrook hasn't missed a game so far this year, so I can't sit here and tell you who will see increased usage. With that being said, Oladipo ill shoot 20 times and you can expect at least a 30% usage. The Timberwolves are a very average defense at this point and Brandon Rush isn't one of the best defenders on that team. Oladipo is a supreme cash game and tournament option.

Alexis Ajinca

Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are both out, so Ajinca will be forced to see 25+ minutes. The Lakers are absolutely atrocious down low and Ajinca is 7 foot 2. He will be forced to grab at least 10 rebounds and the double-double shouldn't be too tough. There should also be plenty of shots to go around and Holiday can only shoot so many times. Ajinca is a bit more of a GPP play but he makes sense in cash as well.

  1. Can you please explain what you mean by cash games, as oppposed to fifty fifty games?

  2. Cash games are 50/50’s. GPPs are tournaments with a Guaranteed Prize Pool. You need to be a bit more risky in GPPs for separation.
