Update (6:04pm) - Giannis Antetokounmpo is out tonight. Making some adjustments to the lineup. Image is updated. Good Luck!
We have another 2-game NBA slate tonight and let us check out our DraftKings lineup for tonight!
The first game on tonight’s slate will be the Milwaukee Bucks trying to hold off elimination against the Miami Heat. Milwaukee was able to win in OT in Game 4 to keep their season alive which was even more impressive after losing Giannis Antetokounmpo in the 1st half. Antetokounmpo is currently listed as questionable, however, even if he does play, we are going to be looking at other Milwaukee Bucks in George Hill & Khris Middleton.
For the Miami Heat, we have a few injuries to keep an eye out on as both Tyler Herro & Jae Crowder are currently questionable. We are going to pay up for Bam Adebayo who has averaged 23 points, 14 rebounds, and 5.5 assists in his last two games. We are also going with Duncan Robinson as the three-point specialist should continue to see a bunch of great looks against a Milwaukee team that has struggled defending the three-pointer all season.
The second game of tonight’s slate will feature the Houston Rockets taking on the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3.
For the Lakers, there is just no way you can’t roster Rajon Rondo with his price tag still sitting at just $3,900. Rondo has looked outstanding in both games since returning from his hand injury and after seeing 28 minutes last game, he is must play tonight.
We’re also going to pay up for LeBron James who was an assist shy of a triple-double in Game 2 and get some nice value with Markieff Morris who was productive in 20+ minutes in Game 2.
For the Rockets, we are going to get some value with PJ Tucker.
Here is our NBA DraftKings lineup for tonight!
PG: George Hill
SG: Duncan Robinson
SF: Khris Middleton
PF: Markieff Morris
C: Bam Adebayo
G: Rajon Rondo
F: LeBron James
UTIL: P.J. Tucker
