Tuesday NBA: Injuries to Know

There are way too many injuries to highlight anything specific here; that’s what happens in the last two days with teams either out of the playoffs or locked into a specific seed.

Boston, for example, is resting seven of its top-eight players. Joel Embiid and J.J. Redick are out for the Sixers. The Utah Jazz could elect to rest some guys.

You get the point: Injuries are the key to everything tonight for the betting and DFS slates. To make things easier, we’re tracking everything here.

Tuesday NBA: DFS Values and Tournament Plays

Due to some injury situations, along with different roles for players out of the playoff race, there’s a ton of value on tonight’s NBA DFS slate. I mean, ridiculous value.

Even a +6.0 Plus/Minus is a very valuable mark on DraftKings, and there are TEN players with a mark above +10.0. Sheesh.

Here are some of the guys at the top:

  • Mario Hezonja ($5,700) at Bulls: +16.62 Projected Plus/Minus
  • Jemerrio Jones ($3,400) vs. Blazers: +16.50 Projected Plus/Minus
  • Robert Williams ($3,000) at Wizards: +15.17 Projected Plus/Minus
  • Daniel Theis ($3,200) at Wizards: +14.68 Projected Plus/Minus

Hezonja is an auto-play if there ever was one. (More on him below.)

Just play him; trust us.

The Celtics are also going to provide a ton of value, too: They’re locked into the 4-seed in the East and will rest all of their players. No, seriously — Kyrie Irving, Al Horford, Jayson Tatum, Gordon Hayward, Marcus Smart, Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes.

For those at home, that’s seven of their top-eight players.

That means a ton of guys priced at the near minimum will have starting roles and playing a ton of minutes and use possessions. It’s hard to fail in those circumstances, so load up on Boston tonight.

Tuesday NBA: Best Player Props

There are currently 11 player props in our tool with a Bet Quality of 10. This season, those bets have both hit at a 57% win rate.

One of those is Mario Hezonja to go over his 6.5 rebound prop.

Hezonja has been a DFS god of late, playing point guard for some reason for the Knicks and putting up ridiculous lines. He put up a 16-16-11 triple-double two games ago — in Houston, of all places — then followed it up with a 30-6-5 line at home against the Wizards.

He’s expected to play point again tonight, and he’s been getting huge minutes for a Knicks team that’s trying to get to July as quickly as possible. They’ll likely let him do his thing again tonight, and he’ll get a Bulls team that’s missing most of its players and ranks 28th in rebound rate this year.

#SuperMarioOvers is a real thing tonight.
