A big 11-game slate of NBA action tonight with plenty of value plays that are expected to get more minutes due to injured starters. There are also numerous teams on the second game of a back-to-back tonight including the Knicks, Hornets, Lakers, Raptors, Celtics, Pelicans, Mavericks, and Bucks.

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

  • Andre Drummond (8) – Double-double every game this season, almost averaging a 20-20
  • Ish Smith (8) – Expected to start again tonight, put up 17 points and 12 assists last night
  • Paul George (8) – Averaging 27.4 points per game over last five games
  • Jahlil Okafor (7) – Had his first career double-double in his last game

Recommended

  • Blake Griffin (6) – Averaging 28.6 points and 10 rebounds per game this season
  • Kawhi Leonard (5) – Consistent producer at a weak position
