It's a busy Week 12 in the NBA, with only one team (the Clippers) sporting a two-game week. So make sure to keep an eye out for LA players on your fantasy team. Here's the full breakdown:
Teams with four games: ATL, BOS, BKN, CHA, CHI, DAL, DEN, GS, MIL, NOP, NYK, OKC, SAS, UTA, WAS
Teams with three games: CLE, DET, HOU, IND, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIN, ORL, PHI, PHO, POR, SAC, TOR
Team with two games: LAC
And here are some players to consider starting and some to consider sitting:
Consider starting: Kris Dunn, CHI
Opponents: @Dal, @NO, Ind, @Det
Dunn is just outside the top-120 for the season, and he's ranked 96th over the past two weeks. At the beginning of the season, it seemed like his job was doomed with the additions of Coby White and Tomas Satoransky. But Dunn is truly an elite defender at guard, and coach Jim Boylen has given him a real spot in the rotation as a result. The past 14 days have seen Dunn notably average 4.0 assists and 2.2 steals across 29.2 minutes per game. He also leads the NBA in steal percentage (4.0) after ranking 2nd (3.3 percent) in 2017-18. Dunn won't provide fantasy owners with much offense, but his passing and defense make him an add-and-start on a four-game week.
Consider sitting: Collin Sexton, CLE
Opponents: Det, @Det, @Den
You can start Sexton if your fantasy team is in desperate need
