We have a light schedule in the NBA on Tuesday night, as only eight teams are in action. Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley is dealing with a toe injury, so that will create plenty of solid DFS options on the Grizzlies' roster.
Let's take a look at the schedule for tonight, as well as what we know so far about the statuses of certain players around the league. Check back closer to game time as we'll be updating this list frequently.
NBA Schedule 12/27/16 (all times eastern)
Thunder at Heat: 7:30 p.m.
Grizzlies at Celtics: 7:30 p.m.
Rockets at Mavericks: 8:30 p.m.
Jazz at Lakers: 10:30 p.m.
Derrick Williams - With Josh McRoberts out, Williams will get the start and is a sneaky good DFS play on Tuesday night.
Andrew Bogut - The Mavericks big man is finally back in business, but isn't a suggested play as he'll likely be on a strict minutes restriction.
Wayne Ellington - After missing the last four games, Ellington is set to take the floor on Tuesday against the Thunder. Normally we’d consider him with so few games on the schedule, however he might be on a minute restriction, which seriously limits his value.
Patrick Beverly - With the Rockets point guard out, Corey Brewer will move into the starting lineup. Brewer is the definition of one-dimensional, so forget about him in DFS.
Mike Conley - Thanks to a toe injury, Conley will be sidelined on Tuesday. Andrew Harrison will get the start, and he’s posted eight points, 4.3 assists, 2.7 rebounds in 12 starts this season. He’s worth a consideration in DFS thanks to limited options with four games on the docket. Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph also get a bump as they’ll be depended on to pick up the slack offensively.
Goran Dragic - Tyler Johnson will likely step into Dragic’s starting role and should see plenty of minutes to make him a DFS play. While Justise Winslow, Josh Richardon and Hassan Whiteside will all see an uptick in usage, Whiteside is the most intriguing DFS play as he should be the team’s primary offensive weapon.
Chandler Parsons - The Grizzlies forward is getting a rest day in the second game of a back-to-back. James Ennis should take his place and is a decent DFS option on Tuesday night.
