We have a solid 10-game slate of NBA action tonight. As usual, be sure to watch the last minute injury updates for tonight as there are some key injuries, most notably Stephan Curry, which could open up more minutes for cheaper options. The highest Vegas totals tonight are the Sixers/Kings, Warriors/Mavericks and Lakers/Celtics games.

The numbers in the parenthesis are the number of experts that picked that player to give you more context as to the gaps between players and the tiers. Here are the Industry Consensus picks for tonight…

Highly Touted

  • Nikola Vucevic (8) – Averaging 23.4 points, 8.8 rebounds and 4.4 assists over last 5 games
  • Ish Smith (7) – Has taken over as the starting point guard in Philly with 30+ minutes in last 2 games, fairly inexpensive
  • Evan Fournier (7) – Averaging 34 minutes and 16.4 points per game over last 5 games, fairly inexpensive
  • Omri Casspi (7) – Coming off a career-high 36 point game where he hit 9 three-pointers

Recommended

  • Rajon Rondo (6) – Posting huge assist numbers almost every night and should again tonight against the Sixers
  • DeMarcus Cousins (6) – Should dominate against the Sixers
  • Draymond Green (6) – Production could increase with Stephen Curry expected to miss tonight’s game
  • Will Barton (6) – Continues to play big minutes and post big numbers off the Nuggets bench
  • Taj Gibson (5) – Minutes and production have gone up with Joakim Noah out, price is still reasonable
  • Karl-Anthony Towns (5) – Double-doubles in 4 out of his last 5 games
  • DeMar DeRozan (5) – Has scored 19+ points in 10 straight games
  • Chandler Parsons (5) – Has returned to the starting lineup and all minutes restrictions have been lifted, still reasonable priced 

Suggested

  • Isaiah Thomas (4) – Marcus Smart has returned from injury, but should only cause a minor dip in minutes for Thomas
  • Kawhi Leonard (4) – Continues to contribute across the board with over 30 minutes every night
  • Shaun Livingston (4) – Should get the start in place of Stephen Curry, cheap option
  • CJ McCollum (4) – Coming off big game with 35 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists, should produce big numbers again if Damian Lillard remains out
  • Klay Thompson (4) – See Draymond Green
  • Nerlens Noel (4) – Averaging 12.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game over last 5 games
  • Chris Paul (4) – Should have increase production with Blake Griffin out
  • PJ Tucker (3) – Has played 38 minutes in each of the last 2 games and is a cheap option to consider
  • Thaddeus Young (3) – Continues to post a double-double most nights
  • Pau Gasol (3) – Averaging 20.3 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3 blocked shots per game over last 4 games

Hope you find the right combinations to cash!

Look for the next Industry Consensus article on Friday.
