We have a HUGE 5 game slate of EuroLeague action today. I have provided the implied totals for each team playing today as well as injury news. Knowing expected points for each team helps you to build good lineups. You want to target players on the teams expected to score the most points and limit your exposure to teams that are expected to score the least amount of points.

Let's start with the implied totals:

As you can see from the above chart, Real Madrid, Fenerbahce Ulker and Olympiakos players make great targets on today's slate. Limit your exposure to players from Khimki Moscow, Saski Baskonia and Olimpia Milano. You don't have to fade those teams completely, but I personally wouldn't play more than one player from those 3 teams in any individual lineup that I make today.

Finally, here are the injury news. I'm only going to cover the most recent injuries. Guys that have been out for a while are obviously denoted in DraftKings by the red O next to their name.

Saski Baskonia
Janis Timma F is doubtful for Baskonia with an elbow injury. That increases the value of Vincent Poirier who could get more minutes. Johannes Voigtmann is a little more riskier but also could be an option and if you are REALLY brave, you can try Kevin Jones. Slight upgrades to the main two forwards as well Tornike Shengelia and Rodrigue Beaubios


Georgios Printezis F has been cleared to play. He will most likely be eased back in as oppose to playing his usual minutes so there's no way I'm paying $9,300 for him. This also reduces the value of the other forwards we have been playing while he was out, Kostas Papanikolaou, Nikola Milutinov and Jamel McLean.

Real Madrid

Ruby Fernandez F has been cleared to play. He played 16 minutes on Wednesday and scored 12 points and grabbed 5 rebounds so he should be fine. I don't mind taking some chances with him at only $6,500 as he could be low owned. Just keep in mind all of the Spanish teams played games this week so be careful as there could be some minutes adjustments.
