Friendly Advice

1) With Jamal Crawford slated to miss yet another game, consider playing J.J. Redick. His March splits have been super user-friendly: 20.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 steals.

2) Another player taking advantage of injured teammates is Nikola Mirotic. Although Joakim Noah is a game-time decision, Taj Gibson remains out of action; thus, Mirotic will at least see around 30 minutes.

3) With the Wolves and their league-worst 105.4 opponent points per game coming to town, Russell Westbrook is a yummy play, regardless of his price. He's just been putting up mind-numbing statistics of late so use him until he either cools or Kevin Durant returns.

4) Another potential barn burner could be the SAC-PHI game; however, be sure to check DeMarcus Cousins' status (ankle) prior to the game. Rudy Gay is a solid play with/without him, but give Nerlens Noel a look if Cousins sits.

5) Closely monitor the news coming out of the Golden State Warriors before the games start. Steve Kerr has mentioned he's going to rest some of his regulars starting tonight. Jump all over the solid producers that do play as the team has a juicy matchup against the Nuggets Friday.
