G: Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder, $25,000

This is the second time in about 10 days where I have Russell Westbrook listed as someone you have to play at the max. If you have rolled with Westbrook the last three games, he’s been disappointing considering his price tag. However, I think that changes tonight. Serge Ibaka and Kevin Durant are out and the Celtics, the Thunder’s opponent, are actually competing for a playoff position. This game doesn’t smell of blowout potential at all. The Celtics are shorthanded so Westbrook should be able to dominate.

C: Rudy Gobert, Utah Jazz, $14,771

Lately it’s been “Gobert or go home!” Rudy and the dominating Jazz defense have been destroying teams. Last game against the Hornets, they only allowed 66 points! College teams score more than that. Gobert has averaged 21 rebounds over the past three games, and is a defensive stalwart. He’s not much of an offensive threat, and tonight they take on a tough Wizards frontcourt. However, I’m still riding the Rudy train until the cows come back to pasture, or whatever that saying is.

Value Play

G: Tony Snell, Chicago Bulls, $5,707

The Bulls take on the Pacers tonight. This does not sound like a sexy game whatsoever. Both teams play excellent defense and play a slower paced game. However, it is surprising that Snell’s salary hasn’t gone up since he’s been playing increased minutes with the injuries to the Bulls. It looks like Butler may be back by the end of the week, so Snell’s value may drop. Over the past four games, he’s played 38, 36, 45 and 38 minutes. It’s hard to argue with those numbers.
