Of the eight games on Sunday's NBA schedule only six will count in FanDuel's main leagues, with games beginning at 6:00 p.m. Eastern or later being available to FanDuel players. Four players on the schedule have salary cap values greater than $10,400, with Anthony Davis ($11,900), James Harden ($11,400), DeMarcus Cousins ($10,400) and Giannis Antetokounmpo ($10,200). What will impact the way in which FanDuel rosters are built are health question marks at the point guard position, with multiple options either being declared to be out or a game-time decision.
Both Jeremy Lin (hamstring) and D'Angelo Russell (knee) remain sidelined for their respective teams, taking away two starting point guard options for FanDuel players. Of course Damian Lillard and Chris Paul are available, and Jrue Holiday represents good value given how he (and the Pelicans as a whole) has played since his return to the team. But after that, finding depth at the point could be tough for FanDuel players looking to rely on one of the high-priced players listed above to lead their roster.
