Pricing for tonight’s 7-game NBA slate is a lot sharper than it has been since the All-Star break.  Questionable tags for a couple stars and whether they end up playing or sitting will really determine how this slate plays out.  Here’s my breakdown of a few low-owned GPP-only targets for tonight, using FanDuel pricing.

Point Guard:

Dennis Schroder ($6,500):  He was in the doghouse the last couple games and served a 1-game team suspension for missing a practice due to flight issues.  He gets an excellent pace-up matchup against the Celtics that he should be able to excel in against the worst individual defender in the league in Isaiah Thomas.

Shooting Guard:

Gerald Henderson ($3,700):  He’s quietly been playing around 30 minutes a night and has an up-pace matchup against the Warriors.  If Philly can keep it close and Henderson gets his normal minutes, he has the potential for 7-8x.

Small Forward:

PJ Tucker ($4,700):  He burned a lot of people yesterday, myself included.  He finished with only 4.7 FanDuel points, one game removed from his 28.5 fantasy point performance in his team debut.  He should play more minutes tonight than he did yesterday, as he should be looked upon to guard Carmelo for a decent portion of the game.  His 2/2/1 stat line from yesterday will scare everyone away, but he has the potential for 30+ fantasy points on any given night and I consider yesterday’s performance a bit of an anomaly.

Power Forward:

Paul Millsap ($7,400):  He’s disappointed in his last three games, failing to reach 30 FanDuel points in each.  Boston proposes a nice matchup, as it should be a competitive pace-up game for Atlanta against a weak frontcourt.  Millsap should be able to crush value if he’s able to get back up to a mid-30 minute workload.

Center:

Jahlil Okafor ($5,700):  It’s difficult to predict what to expect from him at this point.  We’ve seen the 40 burger and the mid-teens fantasy outputs in the two games since being re-inserted in the starting lineup.  I wish the price was a little cheaper, but he still has the upside for 7x.  He has a fast-pace matchup against the Warriors, who have been known to yield some monster games to centers this season.  Philly will need to keep this game competitive, though, which adds to the risk.
