Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown won't decide on starting Jahlil Okafor or Richaun Holmes at center on Friday night until he sees what the Dallas Mavericks do with their lineup. What It Means: This will be dependent on whether the Mavericks start Dirk Nowitzki or Nerlens Noel at center. Brown might prefer Holmes' athleticism against an older Nowitzki, but regardless of who gets the nod, Philadelphia's minutes at the five will likely be split pretty evenly between the two. Holmes is the better fantasy asset right now, but their DFS value is pretty comparable. Holmes...

Richaun Holmes draws 76ers' start, Jahlil Okafor off the bench

Philadelphia 76ers forward/center Richaun Holmes will start against the Dallas Mavericks on Friday, and center Jahlil Okafor will come off the bench. What It Means: With Dirk Nowitzki at the five, head coach Brett Brown would rather have a defensive five man in Holmes out there. He should be looking at minutes in the 20's with Okafor behind him. This will be just the second time Okafor will come off the bench in the last two months. He had started all nine games he appeared in since the All-Star break. Okafor's playing time shouldn't be impacted significantly. Holmes costs...

Mavericks bringing Nerlens Noel off bench in battle with Philadelphia

Dallas Mavericks forward/center Nerlens Noel will come off the bench against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. What It Means: Dirk Nowitzki will start at the five. Noel still makes for a decent fantasy play, both in season-long and DFS. Noel costs $6,000 on FanDuel and is projected to score 21.2 fantasy points (FP), according to our models. Nowitzki ($6,300) is pegged for 27.5 FP. Source: Rotoworld.com

NBA Stars Get ‘Personalized Potatoes’ In Mail, The Truth Behind It Revealed

The NBA community is now going gaga over a bunch of personalized potatoes. Earlier this week, several basketball stars received an amusing present in the mail that got everyone talking.

Much appreciated….” The said parcel arrived at Dirk’s mail just in time after he recorded his 30,000th career point last week. Whoever...
