With half of the Splash Brothers out on Wednesday, it could be a Stephen Curry (10.1k FD, 9.4k DK) night when the Golden State Warriors host the Atlanta Hawks in a nationally televised contest between two of the league’s best.
Without Klay Thompson in the lineup (sidelined 7-to-10 days with an ankle sprain), Curry has to take on more of a load, and he has known to deliver in these type of situations in the past, often in thrilling fashion. He certainly will be putting up plenty of shots, but even without his running mate, Curry is terrific at getting his teammates involved.
The Warriors’ Andre Iguodala (4.1k DK, 4.9k FD) could play up to 35 minutes in this one and will likely be in during the fourth quarter, which should be competitive, as Golden State is about a 6-point favorite. Justin Holiday is likely to start, but it should be Andre getting the minutes down the stretch. You can definitely pencil Andre in, as he is a reserve playing starters’ minutes on the best offensive team in the NBA.
Also, Holiday might not provide enough value because of his likely heavy ownership following his nice outing last game.
Harrison Barnes will also be on the floor more for Golden State, too, and also get run down the stretch, as is expected to get more minutes, as well. He hasn’t played over 30 minutes in over a week, but that has to change here. What a bargain at 4k, although not quite as strong of a play on DK at 4.1k
Kent Bazemore (5.5k FD, 4k DK) – Atlanta’s Bazemore is salaried too high now on FD, almost to the point where he can’t be used. However, on DraftKings, he is an obvious target. We have him targeted for 24 FP on DK with some assumed upside.
Paul Millsap – The ATL F will have undersized Draymond Green guarding him. Millsap is a much better value at FD. We tab him as third best at PF on Wed. behind Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge, who is going up against the best PF defense in Miami. Paul is great for a cash game play.
