Joel Embiid, Andre Drummond, Bam Adebayo, and Christian Wood are all excellent choices at center tonight, and you could even play one of them with Vucevic. Quietly, the one-time all-star, has been one of the league’s most productive centers.The 7-foot sniper is averaging 23 points, 11 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.3 steals while shooting 52 percent from the field, 42.5 percent from three and 82 percent on free throws.
He’s also at a career-best 26 points per-36 minutes, and tonight, he has a very favorable match-up against the Karl-Anthony Towns-less (COVID) Minnesota Timberwolves, who are one of the league’s worst defensive teams regardless of who’s on the floor.
Other reliable elites: Luka Doncic, Domatas Sabonis, all of the centers mentioned above, and any of the Brooklyn Nets’ big three. (Kevin Durant and James Harden are probably better than Kyrie Irving for fantasy purposes tonight, of course.)
