There are nine games on the slate tonight in the NBA and the Vegas totals seem a little lower than normal with only three games over 210 and numerous hovering around 200. As always be sure to monitor the late-breaking news especially this time of year to find out which team is resting their entire starting lineup tonight. We will have our final NBA Consensus article of the season on Friday.

Be sure to check back about a half hour before tipoff for our “NBA Consensus Lineup Construction” article for some sample FanDuel and DraftKing lineups to consider for tonight.

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

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (9x) – Only limited production over his last 2 games but matchup against the Suns should help
  • John Wall (8x) – Had 19 assists the last time he faced the Kings and the Wizards are still fighting for a playoff spot
  • Kristaps Porzingis (8x) – Currently listed as Doubtful to play tonight, watch the injury report before taking a chance on him
  • Karl-Anthony Towns (8x) – I have run out of things to say about this guy, solid and consistent every night

Recommended

  • Hassan Whiteside (6x) – Put up a career-high 27 points in his last game and has scored 24+ points in 3 of his last 4 games
  • Devin Booker (6x) – Still producing even after Brandon Knight returned, averaging 22.0 points and 5.4 assists over his last 10 games
  • Josh Richardson (5x) – Moves back to the bench with Goran Dragic expected to return tonight but still averaging 15.1 points and 2.8 threes over his last 10 games, cheaper option
  • Matt Barnes (5x) – Barnes is back in play tonight with a good matchup against the Nuggets
  • Carmelo Anthony (5x) – Has scored at least 22 points in his last 5 games but playing in a game with one of the lowest Vegas totals tonight
  • Brandon Knight (5x) – Coming off a 30-point effort on Monday and returns to Milwaukee to face his old team tonight
  • Bradley Beal (5x) – Production has been inconsistent but he get a nice matchup against the Kings tonight 

Suggested

  • Willie Cauley-Stein (4x) – Averaging 20 points and 9 rebounds over his last 3 games, cheap option
  • JJ Barea (4x) – Put up 18 points and 11 assists on Monday with Deron Williams out, Williams will be out again tonight, cheap option
