Fantasy Basketball Daily Forecaster – Damyean Dotson

Only six teams will take to the floor Tuesday, meaning you will likely have plenty of open roster spots. The New York Knicks have been better over the past week, coinciding with the strong play of Damyean Dotson. Dotson has scored in double-digits in four straight games, hitting a combined 16 triples. I will look at Dotson, as well as a number of other streaming options in Tuesday’s Fantasy Basketball Daily Forecaster.

Matchups for Tuesday, Feb. 26

Orlando Magic @ New York Knicks

Not a lot to see from the Magic in regards to fantasy, other than the continued strong play of Jonathan Isaac. Isaac has been a top-25 player over the past month, finally producing at the level many owners had been hoping for.

The Knicks have been a much-improved team over the past few games with a number of players stepping up. Damyean Dotson ended the previous game with 27 points including a career-high eight triples. We have seen runs like this from Dotson before which makes him a risky pickup. The Knicks rotations are unpredictable making basically anyone a potential streamer on any given night. Dotson has played at least 31 minutes in three of his last four games and is perhaps the best option if you need points and threes.

Boston Celtics @ Toronto Raptors

Much like the Magic, the Celtics fantasy value lies within a select group of players. Gordon Hayward returned after missing one game with an ankle injury but finished with just five points in 24 minutes. At this stage, he is a mere shadow of the player he was during his time in Utah, much to the disappointment of owners everywhere.

Kawhi Leonard missed the previous game, basically because he didn’t feel like playing. It appears as though he will take the court for Tuesday’s game, however, anything is possible given the recent track record. OG Anunoby moved into the starting lineup for Leonard but had no impact from a fantasy perspective. Leonard’s return would see Anunoby shift back to the bench and he remains a non-factor in most formats.

Oklahoma City Thunder @ Denver Nuggets

Markieff Morris played better in his second game for the Thunder, ending with 10 points and eight rebounds in 20 minutes. He will find it tough to carve out a role sizeable enough to have standard league value. However, his role could have an impact on the playing time of Jerami Grant and his production is worth keeping an eye on as Morris becomes more comfortable in his surroundings.

Malik Beasley remains in the starting lineup for Nuggets, however, Gary Harris is slowly working his way back from injury. Harris had 14 points in 22 minutes against the Clippers and appears as though he may finally be ready to go. Beasley could still have limited value moving forward, although his big scoring nights could certainly be a thing of the past. Owners should sit tight if they are holding Beasley, in the hope he can still produce despite the return of Harris.
