Tonight's NBA DFS main slate features eight games on DraftKings and FanDuel with notable matchups between the Orlando Magic vs Atlanta Hawks, Milwaukee Bucks vs Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks vs Los Angeles Lakers. As always injuries will play a major part when it comes to lineup construction so make sure you are available to be around for roster lock.

Before we do jump into the playbook today I want to take a moment and recognize the tragic passing of the Golden State Warriors assistant coach Dejan Milojevic.
