Here's one lineup for you to try tonight. One interesting thing is that most of the top point guards like Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul, and of course, John Wall, aren't available. With that in mind, I decided to load up on other positions, most notably the shooting guard and small forward ones.

PG: Reggie Jackson, Pistons ($5,900) - Since a bad day on March 14 against the Wizards, Jackson has bounced back quite nicely, scoring at least 19.7 fantasy points a game.

PG: Emmanuel Mudiay, Nuggets ($5,600) - Mudiay has scored at least 23.4 fantasy points per game in each of his last three contests.

SG: Jimmy Butler, Bulls ($7,800) - Butler is the most consistent guard for the Bulls. With no superstar point guards (sorry Kyle Lowry), I can now focus more on the shooting guards.

SG: Will Barton, Nuggets ($5,400) - Barton averages nearly 15 points a game and is coming off a 25 point performance on Thursday vs. the Grizzlies. He's a good pickup at this cap hit.

SF: Paul George, Pacers ($9,200) - PG13 has scored 40 or more fantasy points in his last three games, so he's a must have in your lineup.

SF: Joe Johnson, Heat ($4,900) - Johnson has played 35 or minutes in most the Heat's games over the past month, and he's a consistent producer.

PF: LaMarcus Aldridge, Spurs ($8,300) - Hopefully he plays tonight since Pop is known to rest his best guys at any time. But he is a good option to score 23 fantasy points on a bad day.

PF: Myles Turner, Pacers ($5,400) - Turner had a recent fantasy slump in two of his last three games, but he scored 20 fantasy points in his last game and should be back in form now.

C: Jonas Valanciunas, Raptors ($6,000) - Valanciunas scored 47.8 fantasy points against the Grizzlies last night and has been playing consistent ball since missing four games due to a hand injury.
