Hot Sheet for December 17th
LeBron James (LAL) – James is a good play if Anthony Davis plays and a must-start if Davis is out
Kawhi Leonard (LAC) – Both Leonard and Paul George are viable options, but Leonard has had a higher floor than George and has a better matchup according to my homebrewed DvP
Spencer Dinwiddie (BKN) – Dinnwiddie has scored exactly 24 points in five of his last six games but could score more tonight in a plus matchup against the Pelicans
Nikola Vucevic (ORL) – Played 29 minutes in his first game back while putting up 20 points and nine boards
Julius Randle (NY) – Randle has at least 20 points and nine boards in three straight games and the Hawks struggle against PFs
Marcus Morris (NY) – The Hawks are even worse against SF so look for a spike game for Morris tonight
Marvin Bagley (SAC) – Should start to see his minutes ramp up in his fourth game since returning from injury
Lonzo Ball (NO) – Could rejoin the starting lineup with JJ Redick out
DeAndre Hunter (ATL) – Hunter has played at least 37 minutes in three of his last four games
JaVale McGee (LAL) – Only consider McGee if Anthony Davis is ruled out
