Eric Gordon will start against the Wolves on Saturday.
With Pat Beverley (groin) out and Lou Williams a very capable ball handler in the second unit, the Rockets will get their sixth man in the starting lineup. Gordon should see minutes in the mid 30s, but he actually shouldn't benefit too much here. His usage rate and efficiency take major hits next to Harden, but of course that would change if he's hot.
Patrick Beverley (groin) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday and Eric Gordon will get the start.
This groin has been lingering for a good portion of this month and he also had a flare up in October. Beverley is just day-to-day, so he should be back next week. Lou Williams suddenly becomes even more valuable and should be getting close to 30 minutes. Beverley owners should still hold him in all leagues.
Hollis Thompson will start at shooting guard against the Mavs on Saturday.
The Pelicans have Jrue Holiday, Tim Frazier and a bunch of 10-day deal guards for tonight. Thompson should be looking at minutes in the 20s while Frazier should see a decent amount of minutes next to Holiday. Frazier would be the better DFS play today.
Cameron Payne is available to play against the Cavs on Saturday.
With Jerian Grant starting and coach Fred Hoiberg saying he wants to keep Rajon Rondo in the rotation, it's tough to tell where Payne will get his minutes. He hasn't played too well this year, so most fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach.
The Knicks will start Carmelo Anthony, Willy Hernangomez, Kyle O'Quinn, Derrick Rose and Courtney Lee against the 76ers on Saturday.
The Knicks will go bigger against the 76ers, which is interesting against a guy like Dario Saric at the four. O'Quinn will be worth a look in the short term, but he's as unpredictable as they come.
Jerian Grant will start against the Cavs on Saturday.
Coach Fred Hoiberg said he wanted to keep Rajon Rondo in the rotation, so Grant may not get many minutes in the start. He's not a fantasy option.
Updating a previous item, Malcolm Delaney will start over Dennis Schroder.
Schroder is expected to play, but he'll be eased back in after his suspension on Friday.
Nerlens Noel will come off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday.
He is going to start very soon, but the Mavs will go with Dirk Nowitzki at center for at least one more time. Noel isn't in a better system compared to Philly, but there's no doubt he'll be getting more playing time. He should be a mid-round guy going forward.
