NBA DFS 12-23-19 Value Plays


Eleven game NBA DFS main slate tonight (12-23-19) which means finding value plays is going to be more important than ever!

Looking at the injury reports, Karl-Anthony Towns (knee) is questionable tonight for the Minnesota Timberwolves. They play the Golden State Warriors on the road and will have the last tip-off of the slate. Be careful!

Joel Embiid (sick) is starting for the Philadelphia 76ers. He did not go through shootaround.

The Indiana Pacers now say Jeremy Lamb (groin) is going to play, while Domantas Sabonis (hip) is available. Malcolm Brogdon has been ruled out.

The Chicago Bulls list Zach LaVine (shoulder) and Wendell Carter Jr. (abdomen) as probable.

A trio of Detroit Pistons made the injury report. Derrick Rose (knee) and Blake Griffin (body) are on track to play. Luke Kennard (knee) is ruled out.

Carmelo Anthony (knee) and Bogdan Bogdanovic are questionable in the Portland Trailblazer vs Sacramento Kings game.

Ricky Rubio (sick) is available to play for the Phoenix Suns tonight. After posted an 18 point, 12 rebound (7 offensive) double-double in his return from suspension, Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been banged up and is officially out tonight, again.

The Atlanta Hawks will see John Collins return to the court tonight after serving his 25-game suspension.

Jonas Valanciunas (foot) is good to go for the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
