GSW vs SAC Dream11 Team Prediction:
COVID-19 has laid so many plans to dust and as a writer, it has been a particularly challenging period with so many lineup shuffles, game postponements, and lingering insecurities. Anyway, the Golden State Warriors will host the Sacramento Kings in a classic Western Conference tussle. Warriors have one of the best records in the league with just six losses and 24 wins while Kings have 18 losses and just 13 wins.
For this game, the Warriors will be without Poole and Wiggins, and who knows if additional players will go missing given the present aggravating situation. Even yet, the Warriors can play a formidable defensive lineup if Curry, Green, Looney, Iguodala, Lee, Payton, Bjelica, Toscano-Anderson, and Kuminga are all active.
These days, the Kings are without Fox and Mitchell. The starting backcourt still appears to be solid with Haliburton and Buddy Hield, while Barnes at the wing can also score. Richuan Holmes missed the previous game and, if he returns, he adds a lot of depth to the Center position, despite the fact that Tristan Thompson can become large on the boards.

NBA forecasts, statistics, and analysis
Warriors: They may be injured
Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins combined for 30-40 points a game, and their absence gives the Warriors a significant offensive advantage. Golden State can still have a formidable defensive unit, with Green, Curry, and Looney providing a switch-heavy defence. The question is who will provide quality offence other from Curry, who will be given more duties, and the club will need to find some offensive spark from somewhere else. Some solid alternatives include Damion Lee, Nemanja Bjelica, Gary Payton, and Kuminga.

Kings: What they have available to them
The Kings have had one of the league’s weakest defences, and if the Warriors were fully healthy, the Kings would have had several difficulties to deal with. They must now pin Curry, and if they succeed, they will be able to shut off the Warriors’ offence in this game. Right now, the Kings’ offence is reliant on Haliburton, Hield, and Barnes, and Damian Jones’ 23-point performance will be encouraging. Now, how will the Kings do on defence after being among the league’s worst?

Fantasy Basketball Top Picks
Stephen Curry(GSW) has scored in the 22-32 points range throughout the season while he has scrapped 4-7 rebounds and assists on a regular basis. Curry has been slated as the early MVP candidate.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 35-53
Haliburton has a lot of potential at the one-guard position and seems like without Fox to share the ball, he can scrap out more assists and points as seen in the values above. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 37-50
When Kings are largely healthy, Hield comes off the bench but he is actually a starting-level player. He has figured in the 16-22 points range but can see an uptick in the 23-29 points range with depleted options on offense.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 31-44
Draymond Green(GSW) is one of the best all-around players in the league. His points range has been 6-10, rebounding and assists range have been 6-11, while he can also get 2-3 combined blocks and steals every now and then.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-42
Barnes has been a stable scoring option for the Sacramento Kings at the wing position. The Forward has scored 14 or more in three of the last five games but his scoring range has taken a hit compared to early in the season.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 28-37
Kuminga had a big game versus the Raptors but let us see if the rookie gets 36 minutes again with Draymond Green back. Still, he may eke out 20 minutes or so after a strong showing.
Expected Fantasy Points Range: 14-34
