Friday’s plays of the Day

Point Guard

Russell Westbrook

Westy could be taking the floor potentially with no Paul George, which means more shot attempts for the reigning MVP. The Clippers don’t really have anyone that can slow down the tasmanian devil of the NBA.

De’Aaron Fox

Fox is continuing to show the progression in his development and that trend should continue over the Kings final 13 games. Tonight the Kings are facing a Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant-less Warriors squad. Fox’s lightning fast speed should give him the edge over the veteran Shaun Livingston

Shooting Guard

Bogdan Bogdanovic

Bogi is making a strong case for this year’s All-Rookie 1st team with his stellar play this season. Bogdanovic has the ability to fill out a stat sheet because of his scoring repertoire and his playmaking ability.

Nick Young

Young is going to be a highly owned player in tonight’s slate but when it’s right, it’s right. With no Durant and no Thompson, Young should get all the minutes he can handle against a Kings team that gives up a ton of open 3-pointers. Don’t be surprised to see Swaggy P in full effect tonight.

Small Forward

Robert Covington

After being ice cold for over 2 weeks, RoCo is finally coming back to form over his last five games while averaging 35.2 FDP. I would expect that trend to carry into Friday’s matchup against the Brooklyn Nets. In their last matchup on March 11th, Covington finished the night with 19 points, five rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal.

Omri Casspi

Casspi is my value play of the day. I don’t expect his ownership to be too high but I also wouldn’t be surprised with it being 20+ percent either. He’s a 3-point shooter against a bad defensive team. This play just makes sense.

Power Forward

Draymond Green

Are you getting tired of seeing Warriors’ players yet? Draymond will be the team’s point-forward tonight, as well as a primary offensive weapon. Where Green is going to make his value is on the defensive end of floor, as the Kings are giving up 12.8 turnovers per game. This is a risky play in my opinion, as the players around him are obviously not the guys their replacing, but his skill set and nice bump in usage should give him the ability to meet or even exceed his value.

Julius Randle

Randle has been extremely fun to watch this season as he looks to make a nice bump in his next contract. The Lakers will continue to be without Brandon Ingram in tonight game and with the Heat playing without Hassan Whiteside, the strong play of Randle should continue.

Center

Willie Cauley-Stein

WCS has been arguably the Kings best player this season and has hands down made the biggest leap in his development from last season to this year. Cauley-Stein tends to step his game up against the bigger name teams. His height and quickness should be a benefit to his matchup tonight against ZaZa and as long as he avoids foul trouble, this should be a good night for his owners.
