DFS NBA Optimal Lineups : January 19
Ted Schuster
Jeremy Lamb Headshot

Jeremy Lamb (foot) is listed as out for Friday's game.

Not much impact here, as Lamb does not play consistently in the rotation anyway. Marco Belinelli figures to absorb his minutes Friday.

Taj Gibson Headshot

Taj Gibson (ankle) practiced with the team Thursday,

Gibson will test the ankle Friday before the game, and a determination on his status will be made then. If he cannot go, Nikola Mirotic figures to see a bump in minutes.

Tony Parker Headshot

Tony Parker (foot) is expected to play Saturday.

The 34 year old Parker has suited up in 32 games this season, but his numbers have been very light, with 11.4 points per game and 4.8 assists. He figures to be on most waiver wires so far in 2016. Any time he is out, Paddy Mills picks up the slack, and is worth a spot start in seasonal and a DFS consideration as well.

Tim Quarterman Headshot

Tim Quarterman has been recalled from the D-League.

Quarterman has seen time with the Blazers earlier in 2016, but only saw a few minutes per game. He will not have a fantasy impact in any format.

Dirk Nowitzki Headshot

Dirk Nowitzki says he turned his right ankle during Thursday's game, but he played through it.

With Dirk being 38, and the Mavs playing Friday night, it would not be a surprise if he sat to rest the ankle. He posted 19 points and four rebounds in Thursday's loss. If he sits Friday, Dwight Powell could see a few more minutes.

Raymond Felton Headshot

Raymond Felton will start Thursday against the Timberwolves.

With Chris Paul out an extended period of time, Felton and Austin Rivers figure to split the point guard duties. At this point, until one pulls ahead, it is unclear who will see the majority of the minutes, but the veteran Felton figures to be the one to bet on early, and is worth an add if he's on your wire.

Evan Fournier Headshot

Evan Fournier (foot) is doubtful for Friday's game.

According to the Magic, Fournier's return from a heel ailment caused him to over-exert the rest of his foot, which caused him to miss Wednesday night, and in all likelihood Friday. Jodie Meeks figures to get most of the run in his absence, and is worth streaming and worth a look in DFS while he is starting.

David Lee Headshot

David Lee will start Thursday against the Nuggets.

Pau Gasol injured his finger, perhaps during warmups, so Lee will take his place in the starting lineup. He makes for a solid pivot for late slate DFS lineups, although it's unknown at this time whether Gasol will miss the entirety of the game or just be unavailable for the beginning of it.

Pau Gasol Headshot

Pau Gasol will not start Thursday due to a finger injury.

This, like Parker's late announced absence, comes as a shock. We don't know exactly what happened with his finger, but David Lee will draw the start in his stead. Gasol could still play tonight, just not be in the starting lineup. Lee makes for a solid pivot for Gasol in DFS lineups.
