NBA.com has highlighted the players fantasy owners/players should pay close attention to on Thursday night.
With tonight’s matchups scaled down to just three games, NBA.com has selected five players who could score big points on the night.
Leading the way is the Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin, with his teammate Paul Pierce, Andrew Bogut of Golden State Warriors, Miami Heat’s Gerald Green and the Milwaukee Bucks’ John Henson also on the five-man list.
According to the article, Blake is averaging 26.7 points, 7.3 rebounds and 6.0 assists, while shooting 57.9 percent in the three games Chris Paul missed this season, while he’s collected 46.13 FanDuel points.
And with Paul (groin) and fellow star guard J.J. Redick (back) both doubtful for Thursday’s game with the Golden State Warriors, Blake is expected to be the main contributor again for the Clippers which would see him scoring huge points for fantasy players.
The game at STAPLES Center will also see Bogut in action.
The Warriors center is averaging 8.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, and he is coming off a 13 points and six rebounds performance against the Raptors, in addition to shooting 83.3 percent from the field.
His highlighted performance so far came against the Brooklyn Nets where he grabbed 18 rebounds, 10 points, four assists, three blocks and two steals.
