With so much uncertainty going on today, there are a lot of teams being impacted by COVID, by injuries and are looking to get there guys some rest, so we have a lot of injury news to potentially still come, which could alter the outlook of this article. I'm going to list some news and some options for value that would presents themselves if some players are eventually ruled out.

**UPDATE** --> Three ELITE values that have opened up since the beginning of the day; Isaiah Roby (starting for Al Horford ), Jeff Teague & Grant Williams (both starting for BOS tonight)


Damyean Dotson , PG/SG CLE -- $5,200

Once again, the Cavs will be without Collin Sexton , Darius Garland , Matthew Dellavedova and pretty much any other guard that is or once was on this team. That means Dotson will step into a major role, which is familiar territory for him this season as he’s topped 30+ minutes in four straight and 35+ in three-of-four. With all of those aforementioned guards and Kevin Love off the floor this season, Dotson carries respectable marks of 20.5% USG and .81 FP/min. Also, this is a #RevengeNarrative as Dotson spent the first three seasons of his NBA career in New York.

Willie Cauley-Stein , C DAL -- $4,500

Things could change in terms of interest level here if Maxi Kleber and/or Dwight Powell suit up, but we’ve seen Cauley-Stein starting even with those dudes active. He looked great last time out, a game in which Kristaps Porzingis played in -- and played a season-high 30 minutes. He has played 23+ minutes in four straight games and in each game, he’s grabbed at least seven rebounds and twice he’s put up 30+ DK points. He has double-double upside and on the defensive end he sells out for blocks, so he could be a sneaky GPP play on Friday’s slate.

Nickeil Alexander-Walker , PG/SG NO -- $4,400

We all knew NAW’s potential was great, but this man scored 37 points in his first start of the year. 37! He went for 52.5 DK points falling just two rebounds shu of a double-double. Lonzo Ball has already been ruled out and Eric Bledsoe is currently listed as questionable, which means it could be the same exact scenario in the back court as it was the last time NOLA took the floor. When Lonzo Ball has been off the floor this year, NAW has a 30.3% USG and averages 1.27 FP/min. When you also remove Bledsoe, those numbers balloon even higher to 34.7% USG and 1.44 FP/min. He’s going to be in the rotation whether or not Bledsoe suits up or not.


Tyrese Haliburton, SG SAC -- $5,400

Despite how well he’s playing, we’re getting Haliburton at just 5.4K? Three times over the last five games Haliburton has given us at least 35 FD points and the floor has been 23. Despite coming off the bench, he’s playing 28+ minutes every night and stuffing the box score as well. Haliburton has a pretty good match-up as the Clippers rank 18th in DvP versus shooting-guards. Haliburton has been lights out from the floor shooting 54% while he’s knocking down three’s at a 52% clip. He’s far too cheap on FD in the game that opened with a slate-high 231 over/under.

Jordan Clarkson , SG UTA -- $5,200

Look at what Clarkson has been able to do without Joe Ingles the last two games and then try to explain why he’s priced the way he is. He’s put up 38+ FD points in each of those contests, has scored 21+ actual and has played 28 or more minutes, which are the only two times he’s done that this year. When Ingles is off the floor this year, Clarkson has a 26.4% USG rate and averages 1.33 FP/min, which leads the team. 

Tristan Thompson , PF BOS -- $4,400

Boston will be without multiple big men tonight as Jayson Tatum and Robert Williams have already been ruled out. Daniel Theis is questionable as well, which makes things a bit more interesting. Thompson hasn’t flashed tremendous upside, but he’s been solid when given the minutes and he should approach a season high in this game. There is definitely a scenario where I see Thompson notching around 30 minutes because BOS is going to need someone to defend Nikola Vucevic . A double-double with a couple of blocks isn’t out of the question here and at $4.4K, what more would you need?
