Lin was a strong value play last night with Kevin Huerter out. Lin drew the start, but with Huerter expected to play tonight, Lin loses most of his value. The Nets struggle to defend big men, which makes Dedmon and Collins the guys to roster from Atlanta. I am not quite ready to trust Trae Young in cash games, but he is playing better over the last month and hasn’t had many duds. He was a train wreck earlier in the year.
After missing last game, both Joe Harris and DeMarre Carroll are expected to play tonight. Kurucs and Napier return to lesser roles after being strong values last time out. Even though Trae Young has gotten better on the offensive end of the floor, his defense is still atrocious. He last in the league in Defensive Real Plus Minues and Russell should be able to score at will against him.
