Wesley Johnson and Ty Wallace will start on Friday vs. the Suns.
They’re filling in for Danilo Gallinari (hand) and Avery Bradley (sports hernia) and both have a decent track record of providing low-end numbers when starting. They’re options as DFS punts/streams.

Victor Oladipo (sore back) put up 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting to go along with seven boards in 26 minutes on Thursday night.
We may not see peak Oladipo at any point this season but we're happy to see him out there and contributing at any level. For the time being, he needs to be held in hopes of a brighter tomorrow. Hopefully the shot starts to fall and he can make the most of limited minutes
February 27, 2020, 10:40 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon struggled from the floor on Thursday, shooting 7-of-20 en route to 17 points, six rebounds, eight assists and two cash counters in a team-high 38 minutes.
The percentage dip has really pushed Brogdon down the board this season and he's currently sitting right on the edge of top-100 value after a disappointing and injury-riddled past two months. He should be decently productive the rest of the way and should improve as Victor Oladipo gets back to full strength and takes away more defensive attention.
February 27, 2020, 10:37 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari had a game-high 24 points with six boards, one steal and four triples in Thursday's 112-108 win over the Kings.
Gallinari has put together another strong fantasy season by his standards, mainly due to the fact that he's stayed healthy. He came into tonight in a bit of a funk, but his past two games have been much more in line with his normal play. The Rooster has been huge for the Thunder lately, especially in crunch time, so enjoy the ride.
February 27, 2020, 10:37 pmNerlens NoelC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Nerlens Noel came off the bench on Thursday and scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.
Noel logged 20 minutes and was part of a bench mob that ran up the score against the Kings in order to claw back from a double-digit deficit. He's a solid defensive stats streamer and a must-add if Steven Adams ever goes down.
February 27, 2020, 10:36 pmShai Gilgeous-AlexanderSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a block and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Gilgeous-Alexander kept the Thunder in this one with his scoring ability after a slight rough stretch in the first few months, he's absolutely killed it. He's in the top-50 in 9-cat leagues on the season and over the past two months he's been a top-30 player with averages of 18.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.1 3s on .475 shooting. These are all sustainable and a top-30 finish is likely given how the Thunder have gotten better as the season progresses.
February 27, 2020, 10:36 pmChris PaulPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Chris Paul showed out again on Thursday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting to go with four rebounds, a game-high seven dimes, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Paul had the rare off night against the Kings during the first three quarters, but he had help from his teammates to keep the game close. When it came down to the wire in the clutch, Paul delivered. Time and time again he's killed it in the fourth quarter and this isn't anything new, but it's just news because he's doing it at 35 years of age on an OKC team that many thought he wouldn't want to play for. This is the best fantasy season for the Point God since his Clippers days when you factor in health and production and his 2020-2021 season draft stock is surely rising.
February 27, 2020, 10:35 pmMyles TurnerC, Indiana Pacers
Myles Turner hit the dagger triple in Thursday's win over the Blazers, finishing with 14 points, 10 boards and two blocked shots in 32 minutes.
Turner had a decent double-double in this game and we're happy to see the scoring and rebounding up. At this point, this might be the line we hope for from Turner down the stretch to give us top-40ish value.
February 27, 2020, 10:35 pmSteven AdamsC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Steven Adams dropped 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting while grabbing seven boards with an assist on Thursday.
Adams was his usual self in this one, not the monster shot blocker we've seen over the past few weeks. It's still too hard to see whether or not his defensive spree was a fluke or a trend, but so far he's been providing more value than expected.
February 27, 2020, 10:35 pmDennis SchroderPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Dennis Schroder came off the bench on Thursday and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, a game-high seven assists and a 3-pointer.
Schroder didn't shoot well, but he was facilitating the ball and getting open looks for his teammate throughout the game. OKC's triple guard lineup has been the best in the NBA in terms of net rating and it's largely in part due to Schroder's excellence on both ends of the floor.
February 27, 2020, 10:34 pmBuddy HieldSG, Sacramento Kings
Buddy Hield came off the bench on Thursday and scored 15 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with one rebound, two assists, two steals, a block and five triples.
Hield is still getting it done where you need him too and it's a bit disappointing we didn't see him start or go off without De'Aaron Fox in this one, but the production is still there. He's hitting the same amount of 3s as if he were starting so all is good.
