Mavericks SG Tim Hardaway Jr.
Luka Doncic is out with an ankle injury leaving a lot of shots available in the Mavericks offense. Hardaway should see a higher usage rate with Luka on the shelf. Hardaway should be in lineups for this 4-game slate.
Knicks PG Elfrid Payton
3-games this week. Interim Coach Mike Miller seems more inclined to use Payton in a crucial role. From watching Knicks games this season, the offfense has more flow with Payton over Smith or Ntilikina. If I can see it, so can Knicks coaching staff.
Hornets C Cody Zeller
Consecutive double-doubles with PJ Washington out. Zeller may remain a starter with Washington unavailable. The Hornets 4-game schedule makes Zeller a streaming option.
