In this article we break the minutes of notable players to increase your chances of winning NBA daily fantasy tonight. The amount of time each player is on the floor is a huge factor in NBA daily fantasy strategy, and the breakdown below is a great road map to your success.
Josh Smith, Kyle Kover, Ivan Johnson, and Jeff Teague all played extended minutes yesterday with all the Hawks injuries. They all played well, but look for Johnson to take the biggest hit when the team gets healthier.
Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions are still the only players on the Bobcats you can trust to get consistent minutes nightly.
Amir Johnson and Ed Davis basically split minutes at center last night due to how small the Heat were playing. They should both bounce back tonight in the minutes department.
As mentioned above, the Heat played small. That’s great news for the minutes of Mario Chalmers and Ray Allen.
Jimmy Butler led the Bulls in minutes for the second consecutive game. He’s a perfect fit for their system and it would be surprising to see him go back to irrelevance even when Deng returns.
Joakim Noah is back to playing heavy minutes and dominated the boards last night in a tough win.
Kyle Singler and Rodney Stuckey continue to operate in a hot-hand situation at shooting guard for the Pistons.
Pau Gasol and Earl Clark both logged heavy minutes with Dwight Howard re-injuring his shoulder.
Darrell Arthur looks like the main beneficiary of the Speights trade. He’s going to play a lot of minutes off the bench moving forward.
Patrick Patterson just cannot put it together right now, and Carlos Delfino continues to be the main beneficiary.
Kenneth Faried played just 20 scoreless minutes, and looks to be the biggest loser in Wilson Chandler’s return. Wilson Chandler needs to break the 25 minute barrier before I’m going to trust him daily.
The Nets are playing a lot bigger lately, with Evans, Humphries, and Blatche all playing around 20 mpg. That’s bad news for Gerald Wallace.
Derrick Williams played just 23 minutes in a follow up to his impressive 37 minute night.
Ricky Rubio was visibly upset when he was benched in the 4th quarter last night. I would be too if you were playing D-League dudes like Chris Johnson over me.
Anthony Davis was only held to 30 minutes because of foul trouble last night.
Robin Lopez is losing time due to the resurgence of Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson.
No one plays heavy minutes for the Spurs other than Tony Parker, even when Tim Duncan is out.
John Wall needs to start playing 30 minutes soon before we can trust him at increased price.
The Jazz staff clearly love Randy Foye’s shooting, and he’s seeing around 30 minutes a night now.
Last night showed us nothing about the Suns rotation.
Jason Thompson played just 10 minutes last night, and Thomas Robinson is outplaying him daily. Look for Keith Smart to make a lineup change soon.
With Gerald Green out of the rotation, Lance Stephenson played 40 minutes last night.
Serge Ibaka was forced from the game for a short time after a blow to the head. He did return though.
Jarrett Jack played over 30 minutes again and looks locked into that role, even with Curry back.
