Only two games in the NBA Thursday, with both having an impact on the seedings in each conference. With only four teams in action, there is plenty of potential to stream but very little talent available. Cory Joseph has had moments of fringe value this season, although has struggled of late. If you have a spare roster spot and could do with assists and steals, Joseph could be worth picking up as a one-off.

Matchups for Thursday, March 7
Pacers @ Bucks
With only two games Thursday, streaming could be important, however, most waiver wires will be devoid of talent. Cory Joseph could be a sneaky pickup if you need assists and steals, although, he is far from a sure thing. Tyreke Evans could also be available but he has been a disaster over the past few games.
On the Bucks side, there is not a lot to look at from a streaming perspective. They will see this as a game they should win but the Pacers continue to play well despite the injury to Victor Oladipo. Coming off a loss to the Suns, the Bucks will be looking to bounce back and so regardless of their respective positions in the standings, it may not be a close game when all is said and done.
Thunder @ Trail Blazers
Paul George returned for the Thunder’s last game, which limited Markieff Morris to just three points in 15 minutes. The only real option for tomorrow is Nerlens Noel who has in turn, had his minutes reduced with the arrival of Markieff Morris. That being said, he has blocked at least one shot in six straight games, making him a potential streamer with very little upside.
Moe Harkless is coming off a 20-point game against the Grizzlies, adding six rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block. He is still rostered in just 41 percent of leagues despite being the 29th ranked player over the past two weeks. If he is available, he is worth considering as a long-term option for his ability to contribute in multiple categories.
