Welcome to Week 22 of the Fantasy Basketball season. The Playoffs are heating up and the “rest days” are stacking up. Unfortunately, your prized playoff team can quickly look completely different as you swap players in and out to mitigate your stars sitting. While frustrating, your role as General Manager is to anticipate and mitigate to the best of your ability. If you do that, then you have done what you can do to give your team a fighting chance. Check out the schedule below, get planning, and good luck.

Fantasy Basketball Streamers
The low nights this week are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. There are five teams that are valuable for streaming. At the beginning of the week, The Kings offer a back-to-back on the Monday-Tuesday low nights. Otherwise, the Nets, Magic, and Clippers will offer options that play on all three of the low nights. OKC is helpful for Tuesday/Thursday.
The players below are both 12-team and deeper streaming options. As always, check your league settings and be efficient with your streaming selections. Adding a few quality games this week can advance you to the next round!
SACRAMENTO KINGS (MON/TUES/FRI/SAT)
- Malik Monk (SG/SF): Typically the surge off the bench in limited minutes, Monk should be looking at a boost with Huerter out. Get ready for fireworks. Monk can provide points, threes, rebounds, and assists. While not always consistent, Monk would be a major addition for your team this week.
- Try Lyles (PF): Lyles has turned into a dependable deep-league streamer. Look for Lyles to produce across categories, especially in points and rebounds.
- Terence Davis (SG): Davis could be a beneficiary of Huerter’s injury, making him a deep league stream for points and threes. Davis currently averages 13 points and 2.8 threes as a starter.
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER (TUES/THURS/FRI/SUN)
- Jaylin Williams (C): Outside of SGA, Giddey, and Jalen Williams, it’s unclear where OKC’s production will come from. Jaylin has been getting opportunity at the center position and could be of use, especially in deeper leagues. Modest points, and rebounds with upside in steals from the center position make Williams intriguing and potentially valuable as a streamer.
BROOKLYN NETS (TUES/THURS/SAT/SUN)
- Royce O’Neale (SF/PF): The minutes are there one game, and then gone the next. Yet still, O’Neale is the type of do-it-all player that can make or break a fantasy matchup. Threes, rebounds, assists, steals and a few blocks are all within the skillset of Royce.
LOS ANGELOS CLIPPERS (TUES/THURS/SAT)
- Eric Gordon (SG/SF): The Clippers are weird, but if you need threes and scoring Gordon could be useful, especially in deeper leagues.
ORLANDO MAGIC (TUES/THURS/SUN)
- Cole Anthony (PG): Schedule, points, rebounds, assists, the upside is there. Anthony can be inconsistent but he makes for a 12-team streamer with a great schedule.
