Dwight Howard will be rested on Saturday, missing a chance to lineup against Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies.
This is the first we’ve heard of Howard getting rested, though it isn’t that surprising with Atlanta looking like a lock for the fifth seed and on a back-to-back. Howard has had a nice bounceback year in Atlanta after a nightmare season in Houston and has rewarded fantasy owners with top 70/80 value in 8/9 cat leagues. If you punt free throws, Howard is a top-20 guy. The Hawks probably can’t match Gasol and Zach Randolph on size, so look for them to go small more often tonight. Paul Millsap gets a bump while Mike Muscala and Kris Humphries might see the court.
