We have a 10 game slate in the NBA tonight. Be sure to watch the starting lineups when they are announced tonight as there are numerous plays that depend on certain players playing status for this evening.

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

  • Paul George (8) – Has scored 26+ points in seven straight games
  • Ish Smith (8) – Smith played 38 minutes yesterday and is reasonably priced

Recommended

  • DeMarcus Cousins (7) – Averaging 36 points and 10 rebounds per game over last 3 games
  • Eric Gordon (7) – Should see more shots if Anthony Davis is out
  • Dennis Schroder (7) – Value depends on if Jeff Teague plays or not
  • Monta Ellis (7) – After a slow start to the season Ellis is coming on with 2 straight 20+ point games
  • Damian Lillard (6) – Struggling from 3-pt range, but still putting up numbers
  • Russell Westbrook (6) – Big price tag, but have to try to get him in the lineup with Kevin Durant out again 

Suggested

  • Evan Fournier (4) – Has been a consistent producer all season
  • Terrence Jones (4) – Has performed his last 3 games since returning from injury
  • Jahlil Okafor (4) – Solid option at center if you don’t want to pay up for Cousins
  • Jimmy Butler (4) – Could see uptick in production with Derrick Rose out
  • Karl-Anthony Towns (4) – Averaging a double-double
  • Ryan Anderson (4) – Will see an increase in production if Anthony Davis is out
  • Rajon Rondo (3) –If Darren Collison plays it could eat into his minutes
  • James Harden (3) – Only scored 16 points in his last game, but can go for 40 on any night
  • Kawhi Leonard (3) – Does a little bit of everything every night
  • Al-Farouq Aminu (3) – Consistently gets 30+ minutes, but production isn’t always as consistent
  • Thaddeus Young (3) – Coming off back-to-back double-doubles for the Nets
  • Brook Lopez (3) – Another solid center option tonight
  • Will Barton (3) – Averaging 20 points and 8 rebounds per game over last 3 games
  • Andrew Wiggins (3) – Scored over 20 points in 3 straight games
  • Ian Mahinmi (3) – Seeing an increase in minutes for the Pacers with Myles Turner out
