1/1/2021 Draftkings NBA Picks

Injury Watch/Effects:

  • Russell Westbrook is out today, expect Raul Neto to become a cash game lock and Bradley Beals usage to skyrocket.

  • KAT is out and Naz Reid will be taking his spot in the starting rotation.

  • LeBron James is questionable, if he misses Kyle Kuzma becomes a solid play.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge is questionable expect Keldon Johnson/DeMar DeRozan and Dejounte Murray's usage to be up and Jakob Poeltl to pick up the start.

  • Blake Griffin is out tonight, expect Jermi Grant/ Josh Jackson to get some extra usage.

  • Lauri Markkanen and Tomas Satoransky will be out tonight, expect Thad Young to be a solid play while Otto Porter and Daniel Gafford continue to see increased minutes.

  • Michael Porter Jr. expect Will Barton to pick up the start.

  • Dalino Gallinari is out expect John Collins to get more run.

  • Ja Morant, Grayson Allen, De'Anthony Melton are all out tonight expect Tyus Jones,Dillon Brooks and Kyle Anderson to get a bump in usage.

General Slate Thoughts

  • Chicago will be thin and this game is expected to be a blow out (Mil -14.5 as of now), this peaks my intrest in MIL's secondary pieces chough cough BOBBY PORTIS SZN and its revenge game for him.

  • ATL/BKN have an insane total of 244 (10 points higher than the next two closest) you will need some parts from this game just gotta decide if its gonna be the studs or second unit guys.

  • Draymond Green might be aviable tonight, if its announced that he has no minutes limit he should easily be able to pay off that price tag.
