Dream Team NBA Schedule Analysis – Week 14

By
Updated: March 21, 2021

Trade deadline is fast approaching. It is set for March 25, 3pm American Eastern time. There have been a couple of trades that have already occurred, with Houston sending PJ Tucker and Rodions Kurucs to the Bucks for a couple of DJ’s – Augustine and Wilson. Maybe they think some better music will help the Rockets win! The Bucks also sent Forward Torrey Craig to the Suns. Miami and Oklahoma City also completed a trade, with the Heat send Myers Leonard to the Thunder for Trevor Ariza. It’s highly unlikely that Leonard will actually play for the Thunder after some horrible comments he made on a live stream a couple of weeks ago.

In terms of who could be traded, there are always plenty of rumours at this time of the season. A couple of former All-Stars will be looking for new homes, with LaMarcus Aldridge and Andre Drummond currently sitting out for their current teams. There is also a chance that Toronto championship guard Kyle Lowry will be plying his trade elsewhere next week. None of these guys should be on your team currently, but keep an eye out on their roles if they do move teams.


Schedule Breakdown

Max Game Teams – Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Houston, LA Clippers, Memphis, Milwaukee, Minnesota, Orlando, Sacramento, San Antonio and Utah

For Week 14, there are only two teams that have 4 games, with no back to back matchups. This also includes games leading in to, and out of, Week 14. Neither of these team have been resting players on back to backs anyway, so it shouldn’t change your plans too much.

Atlanta (@LAC, @Sac, @GSW, @Den) – Atlanta have a west coast road trip that will test the metal of interim coach Nate McMillan. They have really turned their season around since McMillan took over, currently on an 8 game winning streak, and moving up to 5th in the Eastern Conference. They have been led by John Collins and Trae Young, but have also been boosted by the return from injury of Danilo Gallinari and Bogdan Bogdanovic. Collins is by far your best option, averaging 21.7 for the season leading into Week 13, and has scored 33, 29 and 49 Fantasy points in his games this week.

Charlotte (@SAS, @Hou, Mia, Pho) – Apart from Rookie of the Year favourite LaMelo Ball, there is not a lot to look at for Charlotte. The Hornets are currently sitting just behind Atlanta in 6th place in the Eastern Conference. LaMelo has been balling out (sorry) this season, and is value is still heading northward. He will be close to maxing out though, with his price expected to be just over $10.5m when lockout lifts. He has been a fantastic cash cow for us, increasing over $6m from his starting price. He is now just a short jump shot away from upgrading to a full premium.
